Whispering Corridors

Released right before the influx of asian horror remakes, Whispering Corridors itself seems like an echo of many of the boilerplate american slasher flicks of the 70's and 80's. Park Ki-hyeoung took advantage of South Korea's newly relaxed censorship standards to create a discomfiting and strange atmospheric tale of a vengeful spirit that haunts the halls of an authoritian all girls boarding school. He employs some unusual techniques (it was shot on what looks to be 35mm film from the 60's), but mainly sticks to the tried and true "supernatural entity among hot chicks" method. He also mixes in some unsettling themes such as invaded privacy, humiliation, abuse, and loneliness, but lacks any real scares that will stay with you. It's more effective as a commentary on the batshit Korean school system, than as a true horror movie. For horror fans, two similar movies that would be more worth the time are Suspiria or Prom Night...

The Neverending Story II: The Next Chapter

On my short list for the worst movie of all time...

The Adventures of Tintin
½

Not a perfect film, but has enough wild action in it to make it a good bit of fun to watch. I put it at about a 73, and I'm looking forward to the sequel...

The creative team who wrote this movie is on the same intellectual level as their dumbfuck characters. An absolute joke compared to the original....

Easily one of my favorite films of all time. The hot wire on the blood scene was one for the ages. Such a cool fuckin movie....

Take Shelter

This is a film about fear. A fear that is isolating, maddening, and destructively real... even if the cause of it may not be.
