Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw
Slumdog Millionaire - **** (9/10)
- 2008 Hindi drama directed by Boyle. This was a terrific movie, and i cant praise Boyles directing enough. He gave this movie excellent pacing, keeping this drama at almost a quickened pace by combining the movies drama with nice chase scenes through the slums and heart-pounding music by MIA and others. It was touching, heartfelt, and one of the finest movies of the year.
Choke - **1/2 (6/10)
- 2008 black comedy starring Sam Rockwell as Victor, a man who fakes choking in restaurants, working off the old adage that once people save a life, they feel responsible for it. He is also a sex addict, and his best friend Denny masturbates all the time. This was a HUGE disappointment, as i loved the book, and the screenwriter is the same one who wrote Fight Club. While this one has most of the pieces there, it just sort of comes out as dull, and we never really get into the depth of the story.
Ju-on 2 - ** (5/10)
- 2000 asian horror that was the sequel to the first one. This is the "Grudge" stories. While this one had generally some really creepy moments, and overall is was sort of a scary movie, it suffered from an even worse case of incoherence as the first one. The script is just all over the place, and you spend more time trying to connect everything than being able to get into the movie. If it had been told in a little more linear fashion it could have been a solid horror.
cool and smooth, that's how i play.
