Tuesdays Movies

Ghost Town - *** (7/10)
- 2008 comedy starring Ricky Gervais and Tea Leoni. This movie completely succeeds based off of Gervais' performance. It is a pretty cliche rom com, but oh hell, Gervais is so greatly uncharmingly charming with a solid wit and great chemistry with Tea's character. Basically, he dies in an operating table for a few minutes, and he can now see dead people, and they all want him to carry out tasks for them, especially Greg Kinnear's character, who wants him to slowly seduce his wife away from her current boyfriend who he thinks is a jerk. Very entertaining movie, nothing more than simple joy.

Casablanca [re-watch] - **** (10/10)
- 1942 romantic classic starring Humphrey Bogart. We watched this in class, this is like my dozenth time seeing this, and still enjoyed it just as much as the first 11 times. It is a fantastic romantic movie, with some of the best writing ever. Terrific script, with good pacing and witty dialogue, and also a superb performance by Bogart. Simply one of the best movies ever made.

Well being a fan of Zombie movies i decided to pick this one up. I shouldn't have. The DVD case had a quote on it that said "The Best Zombie film in decades" from Bloody-disgusting.com. Alright well, they were wrong. The production quality feels like it was shot by a bunch of highschool kids for a film project. The acting is so bad, its hard to watch at sometimes. The explanations for Zombies is rediculous, and the ending is laughable. Stay away from this movie, unless you want a good laugh.

Rating: 3/10

Wednesdays Movies

The Haunting of Molly Hartley - * (2/10)
- 2008 horror/thriller starring no one you will give a shit about except maybe Chase Crawford if youre a girl and you totally dig Gossip Girls weakest character (which is his). Anyway, this movie is absolutely horrendous, and one of the worst scripts of its year. There is not ONE good scene in this entire movie, the whole thing is just weak as a whole, and the only thing that kept me giving it a 1 was that i had at least some hot bitches to look at and that is always fun. But seriously, what a waste of time and energy. Had as much suspense as a college lecture.

The Wrestler - **** (9/10)
- 2008 drama starring Mickey Rourke, Marisa Tomei, and Evan Rachel Wood, and directed by the visionary Darren Aranofsky. This is a fantastic movie, really up on the best movies of the year for me, slinking somewhere in the top 5 right now. Its like a more realistic Rocky. It does a great job of showing the personal toils, that are strenuous and can be physical or mental, and its all just very challenging in general. Rourke does an excellent job as The Ram, one of the most engrossing performances of the year, and he gives it his all, just like his character, and the great parallels to the wrestling world being separated from the other world, its all just a great and very real view of the world they work in.

Beauty Shop- a film about Gina, and how she starts up her own beauty shop. Starring Queen Latifah (The Secret Life of Bees), Alicia Silverstone (Batman and Robin), and Djimon Hounsou (Never Back Down). This is a spin off of Barber Shop, but only includes Gina (played by Latifah) who was introduced in Barbershop 2. Many of the elements of the film mirror that of the Barbershop films, but its a great film as a stand alone. This film also includes great roles played by Kevin Bacon (Death Sentence), Mena Suvari (American Pie), and Lil JJ. Sure this film isn't perfect, but I feel it made for a highly enjoyable time.

7/10

Agreed.. but I think you were generous. I wouldn't give it more than a one. And now I know not to take Bloody-disgusting.com's opinion seriously. What a terrible, terrible movie



Grizzly Frenzy


What a terrible, terrible movie. lol Not as terrible as the above mentioned movie but only because the acting in this is actually pretty good. The writing, and camera work are absolutely horrible though.

With a Grizzly bear killing people you'd expect to see a little gore... a little blood. You see neither. When the bear attacks it has cartoonish like blood splatter across the camera. No shit. That's what you get. You see nothing. Nothing at all.

Terrible movie but surprisingly well acted. All the actors are pretty good.

3 out of 10 and all 3 points come from the acting in the movie.

That sounds like a Sci-Fi channel movie Ladycroft.

Goldfinger

The third and arguably one of the best movies in the Bond series. Sean Connery as Bond must stop Auric Goldfinger from irradiating all the gold at Fort Knox. I can honestly say that Connery is the best Bond. The look, the mannerisms, the charm from him all define the Bond character. This is also the first movie with a theme and also has some iconic Bond moments like the scene with the laser. This movie still beats 95 % of the other Bond movies out there.

9/10

Dawn of the Dead (1978)


Zombies are walking the Earth and there is a mass panic, so 4 people get a helicopter to try and get to Canada. They end up stopping at a Mall, and decide that everything they need is there, and there is no reason to leave. They clear the Mall out and fortify the entrances to prevent any more zombie attacks. Can they live out the rest of their days inside of this Mall?

Some people might not like this movie because it's slow at some parts, but I think this is the best zombie movie ever made, and nothing even comes close to it. Some pretty good gore, and a great storyline are the reasons I like this movie so much. The 2004 remake didn't do it justice.

**** out of 5

Thursdays Movies

Milk - **** (9/10)
- 2008 drama based around the story of Harvey Milk, starring Sean Penn, James Franco, Emile Hirsch, Josh Brolin, directed by Gus Van Sant. It is one of the most powerful scripts of the year, and easily some of the best performance work. Harvey works his way up, building his reputation through the San Francisco gay community, much to the disdain of many, like supervisor Dan White played perfectly by Brolin. It is a strong and well-told story, moved at an excellent pace, and Van Sant finally makes his masterpiece.

The Kid Stays in the Picture - **** (9/10)
- 2002 documentary about Robert Evans. A lot of people don't know this guy, but he was a producer for Paramount, behind huge hits like Rosemary's Baby, The Godfather, Chinatown, etc. He had kind of a sad life, losing the love of his life to Steve Mcqueen, getting in drug issues, getting blacklisted by the death of a future partner, but overall, he was largely successful, and like he said, he wouldn't change any of it for the world, because he did what he loved. Great style to this, narrated by him, extremely interesting.

Let the Right One In - **** (9/10)
- 2008 horror/drama about a young boy Oskar who gets picked on in school, and meets a young girl and builds a strong bond with her, only to find out that she is a vampire. It is a beautiful film, done with great style and with a strong realistic impression. Vampire films that work along with realism are my personal favorites, and this one does a very good job of doing so. Even though we shouldn't feel sympathetic for the vampire, and we shouldnt really feel that way for Oskar, we do. It is a very pretty flick that should be seen by all vampire fans and fans of foreign films.

The Lookout [re-watch] - ***1/2 (8/10)
- 2007 thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It is one of the most underrated films of last year. It is extremely well-written, and the acting is near perfection. Levitt plays a former hockey player who was in an accident and now has a serious head injury to the point he constantly falls asleep and can't properly sequence. He is seduced by a beautiful woman and befriended by a former schoolmate, and it turns out they want to rob the bank where he works. There is a lot of suspense, and it is told with fantastic detail, and there is a solid and exciting half hour.

My Bloody Valentine 3D- a film about a Valentines Day Massacre, and the seeming return of the coal mine killer ten years later. Starring Jensen Ackles (Supernatural), Jaime King (The Spirit), and Kerr Smith (Final Destination). This film was shot in Real D technology, meaning 3D glasses were provided for this film. This film is a great theatrical experience, one that I had fun watching. The film has a decent plot, and although it may be predictable at times, I think it was delivered well. Sex, blood, gore all in 3D!

7/10

What did you think of Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things?

If you haven't seen it or others like it then you can't say Dawn of the Dead is the best Zombie move ever. It may be the best you've seen.

I still think Night of the Living Dead is the best, but maybe the black and white is too old for your newness.
