Bats or Birds?

Posted : 10 years, 4 months ago on 9 April 2007 01:52 (A review of Bats)

I definitely enjoyed this film more the first time I saw it when it was titled "The Birds". I My main arguement may stem from the fact that Lou Diamond Phillips wasn't in that classic.

Ricky Bobby

Posted : 10 years, 4 months ago on 9 April 2007 01:50 (A review of Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby)

For as long as this movie somehow managed to be, I think it played in a role in swaying my opinion by the movie's end. For as hard as I laughed in the beginning, the middle almost put me asleep, but by the end I was almost in tears. Love him or hate him, Will Ferrell really knows how to capture his target audience. I honestly feel that it is Ferrell's calling to exploit every single obscure sport/profession during his movie career, case in point...Blades of Glory.

A Scanner What?

Posted : 10 years, 4 months ago on 9 April 2007 01:12 (A review of A Scanner Darkly)

First off I never quite understood the meaning behind this films animated adaptation. The animation was awful, something any first design student could have pulled off with a hacked version of Adobe Flash Pro. How Keanu Reeves manages a career in the acting business I will never know. Although Robert Downey Jr. poured in a decent performance, I hardly think it was a stretch from his normal life. That being said, what the hell was this movie about? I fell asleep half way through.

A New Beginning

Posted : 10 years, 5 months ago on 25 March 2007 07:36 (A review of Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning)

This installment of Friday the 13th features only the second killer in the series not played by Jason Vorhees himself. With Mrs. Vorhees doing all the slashing in the original, Part V follows a new killer, paramedic Roy Burns, as he seeks revenge on the death of his son. Great death scenes and even a throwback to Rick James..."You're gonna get it, bitch."

The Beginning

Posted : 10 years, 5 months ago on 27 February 2007 06:56 (A review of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (Unrated Edition))

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning follows the recent horror trend of gore torture down a path that is moving away from frightful scares to stomach curdling nausea. In the scheme of the horror Chainsaw series, this is a good follow-up to the remake but may have followed it a bit too closely. It almost feels like an exact replica with a different group of unsuspecting teens. Although we learn a bit about R. Lee Ermey's twisted character and of course the hellspawn that is Leatherface, the overall emphasis seemed to rely on the premise that the new scare is more gore. It is definitely worth a watch, even if it is just to hear what twisted ad-libs R. Lee Ermey can come up with to top the original remake.

Saw III

Posted : 10 years, 6 months ago on 21 February 2007 01:13 (A review of Saw III (uncut version))

For me, the third installment of the Saw horror series fell far short of the previous two. High on gore but the twist that we have all come to enjoy just didn't carry the movie. I think the lack of a character opposite Jigsaw really hurt this precursor to the obvious sequel that will come in time.

Slithered

Posted : 10 years, 6 months ago on 20 February 2007 08:12 (A review of Slither (Widescreen Edition))

Picture the Blob meets Invasion of the Body Snatchers meets Night of the Living Dead, except it failed to achieve their greatness. I was expecting a fun horror flick to likes of which I haven't seen since Eight Legged Freaks came out. Unfortunately, the slugs were neither creepy nor disgusting and the cast had no humor.

Burton Classic

Posted : 10 years, 6 months ago on 20 February 2007 08:00 (A review of Edward Scissorhands)

Only from the mind of Tim Burton could the story of a man with scissorhands come to be appreciated as a classic. Unfortunately for me, watching Johnny Depp adapt to wacky suburban life was not as interesting as his situation. Anthony Michael Hall a bully? Yeah right.

No Period Here

Posted : 10 years, 6 months ago on 20 February 2007 07:55 (A review of The Notebook)

One girl. Two guys. It is the only recipe for a truly romantic Saturday night with your woman. I thought I was going to get my period watching this film, but by the end I realized it wasn't as bad as I anticipated.

Awful

Posted : 10 years, 6 months ago on 20 February 2007 07:52 (A review of King of New York)

Abel Ferrara is no Martin Scorsese, let that be known first. The long drawn out scenes a la Goodfellas serve no purpose leaving me to honestly describe this film as one of the worst gangster movies I have ever seen.
