Featured Video Reviews
on The Fourth Man (1983)
Colorful thriller that throws the viewer off with symbolic imagery and surreal fantasy sequences. Might be considered pretentious by some, but its obviously deliberately overdone in a sort of trashy arthouse style, while retaining beautiful visuals and telling a pretty straightforward story. Seeing this movie you realize Verhoeven had to be picked up by Hollywood sooner or later.
on Joe Versus the Volcano (1990)
Tries real hard to be fun and romantic and different, but it's just so *bad* at it. A relic from the bad old days when every Tom Hanks movie sucked
on Knowing (2009)
This movie is incredibly flat, and so far beneath what Cage can bring to a role. Quizzical fools have to be redeemed, not accepted, and a series of increasingly unlikely events need to be resolved, not superseded. There are no hard and fast rules in film making, incredible things can spring from ridicule, but this movie isn't incredible, and invites ridicule. I'd like to think that this was one long wink at the camera, but no one sinks hundreds of millions into a practical joke.
on Black Dynamite (2009)
I haven't seen that much blaxpoitation, but I've seen enough to appreciate a good parody/homage. Black Dynamite pretty much nails it. The awkward edits, the sketchy production values, the soundtrack, the hair, the clothes, the utter disregard for continuity, the martial arts, the odd line readings. It's a smart, comprehensive send-up and tribute to the genre. And it's pretty fucking funny, too. Not every gag works, but enough of them do and even the ones that don't aren't awful or anything.
on Blow (2001)
Maybe around the fourth time I've seen it. Used to love it.
on Tromeo and Juliet (1997)
B-movie par excellence.
Just one thing - the Narrator is Lemmy Kilmister from Motorhead.
on Departures (2008)
Sad, but beautiful. Made my eyes wet a few times. Quite slow, but never boring.
on Taken (2008)
Feels a bit like Jason Bourne Sr., but it works!
on Coraline (2009)
Boring. Expected better voice acting, especially considering the strides made the past 10 or so years. The story was weak, I almost fell asleep watching this. Aside from the fact that its stop motion, there's nothing special here.
on The Matrix Revolutions (2003)
Abject failure. Practically the only good scene is the first one, in that white subway place. The philosophical elements have at this point turned into a complete mess, the great battle of Zion is the most tedious and pointless battle sequence I've ever seen, all the new characters are boring cliches and the old characters are no longer interesting either. Yeah, the special effects are great, but so what?
