Who's asking?
Are you still coming to see Clockwork Orange with me? I asked MrBlonde and he's frightened of me cry

Since this is the review thread I watched Brokeback Mountain today. It was pretty good, a bit gay, but good, so I'd give it 8.5/10.

Oldboy

Oldboy was my introduction to Korean cinema, and what an introduction it was...


The action is exciting and and a few places fairly gruelling such as when he uses a claw hammer for tooth extraction although some people might find the octopus eating more disturbing. Min-sik Choi did a great job as Oh Dae-Su and Chan-wook Park's direction was top notch. Although an English dub was available on the DVD I watched it in Korean with English subtitles.

9/10

4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days.

A big foreign movie in 2008. They showed the fetus, but ultimately I found it pointless. Aesthetically pleasing, but sometimes aggravating and tiring.

6.5/10

Lady Vengeance

Having enjoyed the first two films in Park Chan-wook's Vengeance Trilogy I looked forward to watching the third. While I didn't think this was as good as Oldboy it was still a good film.


As mentioned before Yeong-ae Lee was excellent as the beautiful avenging angel and Park Chan-wook's direction was very good too. While there are some violent scenes they seemed far less gory and disturbing than those in the previous two films. I watched the "fade to black and white" version of the film where the colour is gradually drained from the picture so it starts with bright colours but by the end it is almost black and white.

Tropic Thunder

It was alright
*shrugs*
I'll have forgotten this movie tomorrow.

6/10


Hellboy II (Or 2 for the Americans)

I don't remember anything about the first, but this was pretty good...it's best when they're in the troll market and Guillermo del Toro can really get creative. The story itself is meh, it doesn't make sense why Hellboy sides with the humans, he's just a big jerk. frown

Coraline in the cinema! Sham-wow!

First off they made me pay THREE BUCKS extra for those glasses! Insert mad face! BUT, I won't have to buy new once for Avatar smile Anyway, it was busier than I thought. frown some thoughts on the 3D: It wasn't bad, it wasn't great, to be honest my feelings are pretty neutral on the issue, and it really doesn't make thaaat much of a difference. Sometimes my eyes got confused and it felt like I was crosseyed for a second.
There were a couple buffoons sitting down the row who kept saying "what." everytime something happened, and having that retard cletus-guffaw. ARGH. People are horrible things. Oh, I forget to mention, Dakota Fanning's character said "I lost the game" once and those people laughed uproariously. Scum.

As for the movie it was fantastic and magical. And that's all I have to say about it.

Curse of the Komodo

Jim Wynorski + giant, CGI lizards + softcore porn stars = nonstop hilarity!  Seriously, this may be my favorite non-MST3K B-movie since Raptor Island.

Okay, so there's no actual "curse."  It's your basic "noble scientists get double-crossed by their own ambitions and the military and/or a big corporation"-story with giant monsters.  Unlike Wynorski's previous dino-monster flick, Raptor, which used monster footage from Roger Corman's rubber puppet series, Carnosaur, Komodo uses CGI exclusively.  Surprisingly it's not as bad as I'd come to expect.  The monster design is goofy, looking little like a komodo dragon and moving even less naturally.  It's barely professional, obviously, we're not talking Industrial Light and Magic here.

Speaking of "barely professional" performances, you were wondering about the softcore porn stars, weren't you?  Yes, Glori-Anne Gilbert (whose other credits include Lusty Busty Babe-a-que, The Breastford Wives, and House on Hooter Hill) whips her assets out under a flimsy pretext and despite their proximity to a giant lizard.  Hey, they had to get their R-rating somehow.

But getting back to the story...the military, who is evil because they're the military, has launched a program on Isla Damas (which is one helicopter ride from Hawaii, though the actual island is off is actually off the coast of Chile) to genetically engineer more efficient food crops headed up by the the lead scientist, who is somehow duped into making giant komodo dragon-based weapons instead.  Genes are genes, right?  Anyway, a musclebound casino robber, his  girlfriend (the remarkably bra-less Ms. Brasselle), their wily getaway helicopter pilot, and Mr. Redshirt land on the island during a storm.  The fences fail and long, boring, and ultimately futile shootouts commence with the actors practically having to say "POW!" when they fire their suspiciously inadequate guns.  Blanks must have been too expensive or the director was just keen on adding the muzzle flashes in post-production.  Either way, since none of the actions ever cycled it allowed the main scientist's Lee-Enfield to be fired semi-automatic.

Oh, and there are zombies as well.

Because I'm stupid and I left my wallet in my car, my boyfriend and I opted to see Coraline instead of Friday the 13 which I know we could have totally snuck into but we did pay for the glasses and whatnot. I'm still mad at myself however. And I'll bet the ticket booth lady thought I was a fucking moron for not having any ID on me.

While we both liked the movie, neither of us could figure out who the intended audience for Neil Gaiman is. He is undoubtedly a great writer, he just writes totally random stuff. And Coraline was no exception. The effects were cool, but I find the 3D gimmick should only be applied to these kind of animated movies. We did not need My Bloody Valentine to be in 3D, that's just stupid. But this was a pretty good movie.

And dude, those two old ladies with all the stuffed dogs...yeah that's my mom in twenty years. Maybe less.

I also watched Seven Pounds with Will Smith and Rosario Dawson this morning. Damn...it was all intense and shit.

Body Of Lies
Decent CIA anti-terrorism thriller thing, reminds me of The Kingdom sorta, but better and more gritty.
Crowe and DiCaprio are ok, but Mark Strong was good in it too.

I liked all the action stuff near the start, graphics were nice enough I guess.
