I recently saw Gravity then I watched the review above. And all I can say is "Damn" I never, ever agree with movie critics or reviewers like the ones above, BUT this time they got it right imo. Gravity was just short of being excellent. And 90% of that was because of the visual effects. I have never seen anything like that before. And I wish now that I could have seen it in IMAX. It was visually stunning. I don't know how they did what they did, but I am sure looking forward to them doing more of it. If this was a preview of what's to come with visual effects, then bring it on, I'm ready. Now the story wasn't anything new. Just another disaster movie, but in space. And as for George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, they did the best they could with what they had to work with. Because it was obvious that character development and story was NOT the emphasis of this film. It was totally the visual effects and that's exactly where it succeeded. It was visually stunning. And the only reason I did not give it an excellent 5 star rating is because I wanted more. It seemed to be over too quickly and I just wasn't ready for it to end. And I'm sure the reason for that was probably $. Because the longer it goes the more $ it's going to cost. Well I sure hope it did well at the Box Office because I would love to see another one. Only this time make it Bigger, Better and most of all Longer!!!
Here we go again, with the same old Hollywood schlock. And again, I watched the video with the 3 reviewers and they all liked it. Well I'm not surprised, but I definitely don't agree with them, but then again I never really agree with movie critics anyway. Because to me they always miss the point. They fill you up with all of this information which has no bearing whatsoever on if I will like it or not. I just want to be entertained. That is where you look for movies right? in the entertainment section. So I'd like to know what was it about this film that they found so entertaining? Because I thought it was boring. Don't get me wrong, it had it's moments. But that's the same for a lot of these haunted house movies, they have their moments, but that's it. I can't remember the last haunted house movie that I found really entertaining. But anyway, I will recommend The Conjuring, but only to those who like these kind of movies and are satisfied with the same old shit. Because that's exactly what you will get. But oh yah, it does have it's moments.
This movie sucked,PERIOD. In fact, it was so bad that I don't even remember anything in it worth writing about. It was suppose to be the Hollywood remake of an excellent Swedish film called "Let the right one in" about a 12 yr old boy who is constantly bullied by other boys at his school. He then becomes friends with another 12yr old, a cute little girl who moves in next to him and turns out to be Vampire. And it was excellent. Then here comes Hollywood with their so-called remake, when they should have just left it alone. Because Hollywood has proven to us over the last decade or so that they have no creativity, no originality, and no talented writers. Because all we have gotten from them are remakes, sequels and crap, hence "Let Me In" a remake that was crap. All I can say is if any of you have seen this or planning on seeing this, check out the original Swedish film first. It's called "Let the right one in" And if you don't like reading subtitles, there is an American dubbed version too. It is so much better than this shit.
Well I just watched the video below, and I see that two of the three reviewers gave it a thumbs down. Well I don't know what they were expecting but I thought it was great. I do agree with one of them though when he commented on the caption that said, "The most terrifying film you will ever experience". Well that definitely was not true, That distinction still belongs to "The Exorcist" But having said that, I loved the movie. I thought it was way better than the original. And for me to say that is pretty unusual because I am a firm believer that a remake can never be better than the original. But I was never a big fan of the original Evil Dead to begin with. And the reason for that is I am a die hard horror movie fan. And one thing I can't stand is genre mixing. Whenever I see the genre of a movie as horror/comedy, I won't even bother with it. If you're going to make a horror movie, then make a horror movie, hence The Exorcist. There was NOTHING comical about that film. And that's what I really liked about the Evil Dead remake. In fact, there were only 2 things about it that I didn't like. (1) I definitely did not like what happened to the Dog. I can't stand any kind of violence against Children or Animals (especially dogs) PERIOD. (2) It was too quick, I wanted more, much much more. I hope if they make another one, instead of having just 5 people come to the cabin, bring 10 and leave the dog at home. I enjoyed every blood oozing minute of it. And I also thought the reason for them being there in the first place was also very creative. And why they would not let her leave when the shit began to hit the fan. Excellent! However I did like the characters (except for one) and I felt bad for them and what they had to endure. But one of them was just too damn dumb for me to feel anything for. I mean if you come across a book that's barbed wired shut, why the hell would you open it? And even after all of the warnings, he continued to read from it. I felt he deserved what he got. But I felt bad for the others. They were not a bunch of knuckleheads that you don't care about, like in your normal horror flicks. So, Yes I enjoyed it and I give it solid thumbs up, and I am so looking forward to another one. But remember LEAVE THE DOG HOME.
I just saw this film and I thought it was pretty good. It wasn't great by no means, but it wasn't bad either. And I actually felt sorry for the young lady. Even though she brought it all on herself by being stupid. And being drunk didn't help her much either. But what happens to her is pretty depressing. Also, I'm not familiar with the director, but I just don't feel that he did enough with it. There were a few scenes that could have been so much better, that I kind of felt cheated. But anyway, I don't want to give away anything because it's a new film and I'm sure there are a lot of people who haven't seen it yet. But later after it has run it's course, I definitely want to read other reviews. Because at the end when you see what finally happens to her, and then go back to the beginning and see what actually brought it on, I couldn't help but laugh my ass off. But then I thought about it and it actually made sense. But hopefully we will get to discuss this later. So if you are considering on seeing this movie, I would recommend it. But don't go in there expecting too much. Just accept it for what it is and enjoy it as I did.
