Hot Fuzz

Great movie! I laughed so hard at so many parts, it is just overall very well done. I liked Shawn of the Dead as well, and the main characters gave equally hilarious performances.

Crossroads

Strange idea for a film, but has good elements. (Like the Karate Kid vs Steve Vai in a guitar duel tongue.gif)

I really want to see that one. It reminds me of House of Flying Daggers (same director I believe)...which is one of my favorite movies. I also love Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon...but that one is so over-stated.

Yay Chinese martial arts films!

So was it any good? (other than visually satisfying?)

Samurai X: The Motion Picture

I thought it was quite 'meh'. The sequencing of the scenes and random battles didn't really amount to much, and didn't follow the backdrop story about some corrupt government well. It felt as if it was style over substance. The anime series was much better.

Paprika

Despite it has some interesting visuals and some unique ideas, I don't like it. Though the order of the events were being placed disorderedly by director Satoshi Kon on purpose, I wasn't being impressed or thrilled by it. I actually got bored due to its weak story background and the ending.

Number 23

The ending was quite a dissapointment, I'd thought the build up in the early parts of the show was pretty interesting but the resolvement in the end was unexpected but not good enough. A good show but not something I'll rewatch again.

Sunflower
Literally, a melodramatic gangster film. Tae Sik’s actor plays a very fleshed out and interesting meek character. It came as a shock to me to see his extensive tattooing.
The film mostly acts like a checklist of the usual gangster film motifs. To be fair, Sunflower does tackle some slightly different ground in comparison to other efforts with virtually identical plots, with Tae Sik’s journey being one of repentance rather than redemption. The recurring notebook motif works quite well in this regard, underlining his character’s determination to make amends and fit in with decent society, something which of course is lent a tragic air given that the viewer is constantly aware that his hopes are all too likely to be dashed.

Mindhunters: first 30 minutes were good, rest of the film got progressively worse.

Spiderman 3

It feels like this movie is going to take a while to warm up to me, but overall, it was alright.

Me too, but I loved this film!

Much better than 1 & 2 IMO.

Pan's Labyrinth

I definitely wasn't preparerd for the brutality of the movie. And there I thought it was similar to Narnia and Eragon. but seriously, you can't even compare. Eragon was so-so, Narnia was good but I like Pan's labrinth best even though it gave me shivers. I kept on thinking it was a fairy tale similar to Alice in Wionderland and how wrong was I.

Yep, thats pretty much what Pans Labyrinth is - an adults version of Narnia. I found it amazing, and one of the best fantasy movies I've ever seen.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

One of those timeless cult classics, bordering on insanity and weirdness.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning

0_0

The most ****ing violent thing I've EVER seen! I reckon even Mr. balls-of-steel Andy would be freaked out by this (unless he's already seen it). Let's just say, given the choice in future, I'll DEFINATELY be riding in the back seat of cars wink.gif

But for criticism's sake, it was certainly interesting to see how Thomas became Leatherface. I always knew he would come around to his habit eventually, but I sorta expected him to kill his first victim with a chainsaw, not a sledgehammer.

For people who don't mind sleeping with a light on, I highly reccomend it. For people like me who can be pant-shittingly scared as easily as a 5y-old who's just seen their first clown, for the love of God stay the hell away from this.

Looks like I'll be sculling caffeine today 'cause it's gonna be hard as hell to get to sleep tonight biggrin.gif

LMFAO! laugh.gif

I'm glad that it scared the shit out of you. That's what horror movies are made for smile.gif

I watched it several months back, and thought that it was quite brutal and unrelenting at times. The only problems I had with it were that the chainsaw kills weren't as good as they could have been. The chainsaw kill in the Dawn of the Dead (2004) remake was absolutely awesome near the end of it, and I found it better than the TCM: The Beginning's chainsaw kills.

As far as selling out also goes, I didn't really like how the script writers opted for a Freudian analysis of how Leatherface came to be a sadistic, murderous cannibal. As I watched the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), I loved the mystery and aura that is Leatherface's past, and to open it up with the new film and show how a little kid abused/neglected etc was quite lame. It just took away all the shocking demeanor and brutality of adult Leatherface, and reduced him to a victim of childhood problems.

The visceral violence in TCM: The Beginning was definitely right up there, but as far as it being a movie goes, there is no satisfaction or pay-off from all the non-stop chainsaw-revving, slicing and dicing. Some scenes felt like it was bordering on a NC-17 rating (banned rating) - quite similar to the remake of The Hills Have Eyes (2006).
