A mix of action and gore, and whole lot of shooting, and you get Smokin' Aces. (Oh, I can't forget the swearing). A great cast of stars to add to the mix, and you get this excellently made movie. Before I went to watch this movie, I asked how gory this movie was, as it had that rating, and they said, they didn't notice much blood, NOT MUCH BLOOD, someone gets cut up by a freakin chainsaw. (not the full out blood fest of Texas Chainsaw Massacre.) The film is about a Vegas magican named Buddy "Aces" Iseral, who turns to the mob life, is being targeted by other mobsters. There is a $1 million dollar contract on his life, and several hitmen and women are out for that prize, to kill him. Out for that prize, is a couple of women, who pose as prosetutes, the tremors who are a bunch of crazy rockers, who kill the FBI's, helpers to protect Irsel, named Dupree. This all started because Aces is snicking out fellow mobsters. In wild ride, of bullets, and blood, this is a excellent, entertaining movie, that most action fans would like.
With high spectacular special effects, that is all the producers of Ghost Rider we're thinking. In a movie, better then Daredevil, but worse then Spider-man, and even Fantastic Four, Nicholas Cage plays Johnny Blaze, who is a bike stuntsperson who follows in his fathers footsteps. The film starts with a werid introduction, about former ghost riders, and a contract that the devil wanted, which I did not follow at all, maybee if I actually read the comic books? Anyways, his father has cancer, so in a depesrate plea, he makes a deal with the devil, that he soulfully regrets doing, to save his father. (producers should have cast his younger self better, cause he looks nothing like nicholas cage). Years later, he is preforming his most daring stunt ever, jumping over six helicopters, in a football stadium with thousands of screaming fans. Soon, the devil repears, and he must be the rider, as the trailer gave away. He soon must fight the devil jr., and when they introduce this villian, they attempt a cheap scare, which doesn't work, at all. Not even, a jump from someone attending in the audience, at the screening. The movie leads to a lame fight at the end, and doesn't deserve any sequels, as there is really no one more larger to fight then the devil himself. I would personally give this a thumbs down, and the two stars are for the effects.
I saw Hannibal Rising this weekend, and although I felt it was too long, it was still a good movie. Very graphic, and disturbing, it begins during the wintery mouths of war at Lector castle, as the family escapes to it's cottage to escape the natzi grips. Hannibal witnesses his parents death, and watches as men, take his sister out door, and kill her for food. Hannibal soon grows up, at his old castle now turned orphange, and soon escapes to the city, to live with his aunt, a chinese religies women. He steals his aunt's sword, and kills a local butcher, and takes the head with him as a soverier. He grows up, engraged over his entire families death, and stalks and attempts to track down all the men behind the death, of his sister, and who ate her. He takes his revenge out, but killing the men, and then taking there off, and eating them. Then Hannibal Lector is born. The movie has stunning visuals, though it spent it's entire lenght during the winter mouths, which is a pain to watch when it is wintery outside. I recommeded this movie, too all horror fans or to those who liked the other movies, even though I haven't seen the other Hannibal movies (silence of the lambs, Hannibal, Red Dragon).
Not the greatest movie ever. It had a terrible storyline, and was hard to follow. Plus, I would like someone to explain the title, What part had to do with "Messengers"? I think they just wanted a cool title. like Ring, Grudge. They may have gone somewhere with this idea, if they spent more time developing a better script. The actor who player her boyfriend, whose name escapes me, really need's acting lessons. They had a little "Brokeback Mountain" montage when the father, and that guy who helped them with the farm work. The twist at the end was very predictable, and the ending sucked. Overall, it was better then the Grudge 2, as I stayed awake for the full length, but wasn't as great as Black Christmas or Saw 3.
"THIS IS DEFINETLY THE BEST MOVIE EVER!" Even though it was spanish, I followed it really well. It was imagitive, beauitful, and wonderful. Athought very gory and violent it still a prefect movie. I do not recommend it for kids. This movie is completely the oppisite of Borat. Number one movie of 2006 for sure! Great writing, excellent preformances, and an excellent cinematic experience. It begins during the war, as a group of soilders meet up at an old water mill, to set up command points, to destroy a band of rebels. Ofiela, a young girls, is in love with fairy tales. She follows a fairy into a Labyrinth, to meet a Faun, in which she befriends. He tells her she is Princess Moanna, and must complete three tasks to prove she is not lost to the humans. The first task, she must kill a giant toad living under an oak tree, to recieve a key. (this scene was very disturbing) then, the second, she uses the key to go to a dinning room, and take out a dagger, but eats the food on the table, even though told not to, and awaikins a weird creature, that has eyes in it's hand, and it chases after her, theatrening in death. The faun leaves as she did not follow the rules, and she is left alone. Her mother dies, during pregancy, and her father very abusive only cares about the baby (his son). Finaly the Faun revisits her, and tells her she may join him, at his royal palace, only if she follows his rules.
The movie disveres oscars, and was really excellent. The imagination behind this movie, was awesome, and definetly should create more movies. The special effects in this movie, was purely amazing. The spanish title of the movie is "El Laberinto del Fauno" a.k.a Pan's Labyrinth.
Weird movie with great parts and simply scenes where you are like, "this is different", very well acted especially the two supporting actresses, Rinko Kikuchi and the spanish speaking actress, i especially loved her story, basically about the lives of three totally different people and their cultures, this is filmed entirely in subtitles, well the majority of the movie, apart from the cate blanchett/brad pitt parts. The movie is set in Japan/Mexico/Morocco and the U.S. The acting was good, i kind of liked it, even though i wouldent say it deserves best movie of the year. Borat/Dreamgirls anyone???
If you liked Traffic you should like this, its well made, heartbreaking and tragic is many senses.....
WORST MOVIE EVER! Sorry to all who liked it, but it sucked. Stupid, disgusting, with no perpose whatsover. I am so glad it didn't win best picture, nor got an oscar nominated best picture. This really all I say: WORST MOVIE EVER MADE: THERE GOD DAMN BETTER NOT BE A BORAT 2!
I usually don't go see musicals but instead wait until they come to DVD, but after all the media hoopla surrounding this and of course, friends telling me about it, I said why not, and went to see it. My thoughts. Electrifying, tremoudous, stunning entertainment with a great cast that complemented each other. The singing was fab-u-lous, the acting terr-i-fic. Great entertainment from beginning to end. Jennifer Hudson proved she is a singer whose vocal chords can stand up to the best. As for acting, if this is her first movie, she is a natural; definitely, oscar worthy acting with a great voice "What da ya think of that..SIMON!" Why this young lady was not given a contract after being booted off American Idol puzzles me, but she is on her way now. And rumor has it, they plan to do a revival of the broadway play with Miss Hudson re-creating her role as Effie; if this is true I'll get in line for my tickets. But enough. Words cannot do her justice. You have to see her perform. As for Eddie Murphys' Johnny Thunder, best performance I have seen from him in a while. From his want to be Slick Rick womanizing self, his crooning soon to be gyrating antics to his first all white audience to his final James (Hit Me) Brown rap; I can see why these two were nominated. Just their performances is enough for me to recommend people to see this movie. I feel they will not be dissapointed. With eight Academy nominations, why it didn't receive a nomination for Best Picture also puzzles me; but nominations don't make a movie; a superb cast, good directing, acting, etc. does it and this movie brings it to the table. On another note, marty19 posted 28 days ago ask about the Supreme that left the group. A brief history: If I can recall, I think it was Mary Wilson, one of the original backup singers that started the group with her two friends Diana and Florence Ballard. Marty19 may be referring to Florence. Florence was eventually kicked out of the group and ended up being replaced by Cindy Birdsong. Florence eventually ended up on welfare and Diana was criticized for not coming to her aid, after all; knocking boots with Barry Gordy, this got her top billing "Diana Ross & the Supremes" and extra ca ching in her pockets. I cannot comment if Diana ever came to her aid, but sad to say, Florence is the Supreme who died in poverty.
I watched this yesterday on DVD. I wasn't really sure what to expect. The movie is about a "hot" gun that Joey (Paul Walker) is told to get rid of because of its criminal background. Two mobs and crooked cops are involved in this crazy ass, well put together movie. The cinematography and digital effects work together with the story and great acting to portay this somewhat sick view of a portion of todays society. If you dont mind or even like guns, mobs, and violence then WATCH THIS MOVIE.
