Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw
The Last House on the Left - ***1/2 (8/10)
- 1972 horror directed by Wes Craven. The remake is coming out this year and i never actually checked out the original so i thought now might be a good time to do so. I was pleasantly surprised, as it is a nice gem. It is very brutal, and kind of crazy with its peaceful and fun 70s music set to a very dark script, with some very odd humor. Its based around two girls that go out, get caught by some crazy minds looking to have some fun, and these same people who did some quite disturbing deeds to those girls end up crashing at the parents' house. Very intense, very rough around the edges, and quite exciting. Its got a great attitude.
The Kid - ***1/2 (8/10)
- 1921 comedy starring Charlie Chaplin. This is considered one of his best movies as far as Ive heard, and it is a pretty funny one. It is simple story based around his Tramp character who finds a boy in a street one day and ends up raising him for five years, not knowing where he came from, only having a note to care for the orphan child. It is simple physical slapstick humor, handled with skill by Chaplin and the child, who is especially cute and very funny to watch. At only 67 minutes long, its an easy watch and a lot of fun.
.... Vs. - *** (7/10)
- 2009 animation based around two .... stories, .... vs. Thor, and .... vs. Wolverine. Not a huge .... comic book reader but i heard these two were centered around stories in comics, and they are done pretty well. In the first one the .... is possessed to attack Thor's realm and Thor must rely on some untrustworthy fellows to help stop the ....s rampage, and in .... vs. Wolverine, Wolverine is told to put down the ...., but they are both captured by some by Weapon X. They are both entertaining with some great action. I prefer the second one, but maybe thats just because i am a huge Wolverine/Weapon X fan, and they really do a good job with the other characters (Deadpool/Sabretooth/Red Omega/Lady Deathstrike). All in all its just a fun animated flick, and as far as i can remember off the top of my head, its coming out to DVD at the end of the week. Good purchase for any fans of the comic book superhero animations or of .... in general.
cool and smooth, that's how i play.
