Not so Twisted

Posted : 12 years ago on 16 November 2006 06:11 (A review of Twisted)

The mystery side raised some eyebrows but the outcome was so pathetic that any episode in the Law & Order series would have made a more "twisted" ending than this.

Unfortunate

Posted : 12 years ago on 16 November 2006 01:30 (A review of Geronimo, An American Legend)

This was an awful tribute to the American Indian legend Geronimo. The storyline was so bland, even with an all-star cast, you are better off reading a history book and using your imagination.

Vietnam War

Posted : 12 years ago on 15 November 2006 11:33 (A review of Born on the Fourth of July (1989))

This movie revisited so many questions in my mind especially with America's current situation in the Middle East. Oliver Stone conveys the unfathomable hardships and struggles that plagued veterans of the Vietnam War and Tom Cruise plays an important and memorable role in translating the real life of Ron Kovic.

Sling Blade

Posted : 12 years ago on 15 November 2006 08:24 (A review of Sling Blade (1996))

It's hard to believe that Karl is Billy Bob Thorton, but this is far and away his best performance ever. The drama feels real and Thorton makes us believe it.

Surf Classic

Posted : 12 years ago on 15 November 2006 07:53 (A review of North Shore (1987))

For those in the surf world, this is a classic. For those outside the surf world, this is a classic...comedy. If ever you felt the need to make jokes on the surfer style and mentality (or lack there of), start here first.

Really? A Movie?

Posted : 12 years ago on 15 November 2006 07:46 (A review of March of the Penguins (2005))

I don't think I could possibly understand the fascination with penguins to such a point that this was made into a major motion picture. This could have easily been translated into a one hour special on the Discovery channel.

Strangers

Posted : 12 years ago on 15 November 2006 07:20 (A review of Dark City (1998))

It took me a second viewing to really appreciate this film. The concept and visually unsettling look into a future world set in a dated period is exceptionally engaging. Definitely worth a look.

Bad-man

Posted : 12 years ago on 15 November 2006 07:09 (A review of Batman Forever (1995))

Well its not the worst installment of the Batman series, but its close. With all the star power, not even the maniacal comedy of Jim Carrey could resurrect this film. It's a shame that adding Robin to the equation made the film as bad as it did.

The Original

Posted : 12 years ago on 15 November 2006 01:49 (A review of The Bourne Identity (1988- ))

I am definitely against remakes unless of course they are worthy of and better than the original. This film fits into both categories, as it is perhaps one of the worst spy thrillers I have ever seen. The 2002 remake starring Matt Damon stands well beyond this orginal and I often use it as a reference to when remakes can be surpass its creator.

The Original

Posted : 12 years ago on 15 November 2006 01:39 (A review of The Deep)

I came to the realization that this was the original prelude to the 2005 remake "Into the Blue" about half way through the film. This is a classic film starring three of the top actors from their time period and the suspenseful storyline is definitely entertaining. The original is no better, no worse than the remake, but I hate seeing the original after the remake for the simple concept that modern Hollywood magic tends to overcompensate any classic.
