My Name Is Bruce

Bruce Campbell plays himself in this great litte comedy. A kid awakens an ancient chinese warlord and seeks out Bruce Campbell for help. Campbell is running the whole show and shows what a brilliant comedy actor he really is. Lots of funny scenes and quotes ("A MILF is a MILF") pretty much throughout the whole movie and that's what you want from a comedy isn't it? If you're a fan of Campbell you'll love this. If you're not, you'll still have a pretty good time watching it.

8/10

The Accidental Husband- a film about a radio show host, who accidentally gets married to a man who she does not know. Starring Uma Thurman (My Super-Ex Girlfriend), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen), and Colin Firth (Mamma Mia!). Uma Thurman is a fine actress, but this film is not one of her best works. It tries, but the film isn't as interesting as it sets out to be. The parts with Ajay Naidu are memorable, but the rest of this film is forgettable.

5/10

Underworld: Rise of the Lycans- a film that shows the age old war between Death Dealers and Lycans, and how it all began. Starring Michael Sheen (Frost/Nixon), Bill Nighy (Valkyrie), and Rhona Mitra (Doomsday). I really enjoyed the first Underworld, but disliked Underworld: Evolution. This film falls in the middle for me. Great action scenes all around, but I felt that this film may have been sort of unnecessary. Still is good for fans of Underworld.

6.5/10

Slumdog Millionaire - Jamal Malik undergoes a police interrogation after being accused of cheating in the Indian Version of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire. From here the movie goes into a number of flashbacks and he explains how he knew some of the answers from experiences in his impoverished past.

It's a very good movie, but how this was advertised as 'feel good movie of the year' is beyond me. There's quite a bit of brutality and you're pretty much witnessing the worst that the poor in the Indian Subcontinent do happen to go through.

My only real gripe with the movie was the ending which I thought could have been done better.

8/10

I actually went to see this with my mom and she was expecting the typical Bollywood singing/dancing fare. It was an unpleasant surprise for her.

Had to post that since reading that reminded me of this. However, more on topic:

Amityville Horror II: The Possession (1982)-Horror

It is a prequel to the first movie and is about the true story (a bit of Hollywood added to it though) of the DeFeo family's experience in 112 Ocean Avenue, a house built on an ancient indian burial ground. The eldest son is possessed by an evil spirit. That is all of the plot I will give away since if I go any further I will spoil one of the best scenes in the movie. I thought is was a pretty good movie, the acting wasn't bad and there were a couple of "leave the room" moments. (I did not literally, but you know what I mean) Overall an enjoyable watch and good for anyone who likes thrillers.

7.5/10

Saturdays Movies

Panic Room [re-watch] - **** (9/10)
- 2002 thriller starring Jodie Foster, Forest Whitaker, Jared Leto, Kristen Stewart, and directed by David Fincher. While a lot of people feel this is pretty much his weakest work, i disagree heavily. I think this is one of the best modern psychological thrillers around. A woman buys a new house with her daughter and ends up stuck in the panic room while three men have to force her out to get what is inside. The characters are incredibly well-written, all working within their own morals and functions, all doing what they can do in their short-stacked situations. Foster is excellent, Whitaker is excellent, it is a great battle of the minds, and its fun to watch a mother and child fight off some thieves.

A History of Violence [re-watch] - ** (5/10)
- 2005 drama/thriller starring Viggo Mortensen, Ed Harris, William Hurt and directed by David Cronenburg. I had to give this another try, seeing as how revered it is, but after yet another viewing of this critically acclaimed powerhouse, i still find nothing so great about it. Basically, some organized crime come to the small town and accuse Mortensens character of being a guy named Joey Cusack, even though he is known to everyone there as Tom Stall. The performances are there, but i find the movie to be completely aimless. I think people are really reaching when they try to explain how much this movie displays the real nature of violence, because the movie just really doesnt show it that well. The action scenes are nice enough, but the supplemental package fails to make me care all that much.

One Hour Photo - ***1/2 (8/10)
- 2002 drama starring Robin Williams, Connie Nielson, and Michael Vartan. A strange man named Sye works at SavMart, and seems to have a very odd obsession with a womans family, and a strange jealousy of the father. He constantly looks for ways to enter their life in more ways than just developing photos. Williams is great in this movie, and the first half is so awesome, because it just makes you feel creeped out. The scenes display a great awkwardness when he puts himself in the odd social situations of certain scenes, and the second act compiles it all up when he starts stalking the family and finding out secrets. It has great pacing, with a solid script, and the performance really captures the idea behind this crazy character.

Snow Angels - *1/2 (3/10)
- 2008 drama starring Sam Rockwell and Kate Beckinsale. There is a teenager who is finding love while also dealing with his parents' separation, a divorced pair of high school sweethearts who have trouble sharing the child, and all the family and friends that surround them. I can't believe i disliked this as much as i did. I was expecting something solid, especially with Rockwell at the helm, but there is nothing here to appreciate. The story is grim as shit, but thats not really the problem. It just never really offers any resonance, it just kind of drones on, dulls itself into nothing but a pounding of morose events, one after the other, without any real hope, moments of certain beauty, or anything other than sadness. Sam Rockwell is GREAT, a really solid performance, but it is a movie with no direction other than to try and out-depress itself each minute.

Amusement (2009)




A boy who gets "teased" by 3 girls later gets revenge.


When it comes to straight to dvd movies some times you'll get lucky and find a real gem but no such luck here. The characters are so overly retarded you want them to die. I know horror movies aren't known for smart protagonist but this was ridiculous. There's a huge lack of any type of gore/blood or many scares for that matter (unless you're freaked out by clowns) and with it being Straight to dvd you'd think they'd throw caution to the wind and have a fun gorefest but nothing like that at all. Meh I've seen worst.

5/10

Layer Cake (2004)

An extremely stylized and iconic film, with a great cast and story. The film tells the story of a young drug lord (Daniel Craig) as he tries to complete two final jobs before he can enter an early retirement. The film is reminiscent of other british crime films like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (even casting some familar faces from that film) but takes an artistic spin on it. This use of Mise-en-Scene works beautifully and supported is brilliantly by the non-diegetic sound. The only critisms that I have with the film is that some of the dialogue can be delivered dryly and that Sienna Miller, while nice to look at in the few scenes she appeared, really added nothing to the film and seemed kind of pointless.
A brilliant must see British film. 10/10.

Sundays Movies

Mulholland Drive - ***1/2 (8/10)
- 2001 psychological drama starring Naomi Watts and directed by the mastermind of weird and loopy, David Lynch. This movie is really no exception to his wild and out there stories, as a woman is harmed in a car crash and cant remember anything, and is taken in by a young aspiring actress, and together they try to find out what just happened to her. It isnt a very fast-paced movie, but it does a good job of enthralling the viewer, and constantly throwing things out there to keep you from looking away. You have to pay attention, or the last 15 minutes or so wont make much sense. Not the greatest pay-off to end the movie, but it is still a very solid finish to a great trip.

In Bruges [re-watch] - **** (10/10)
- 2008 black comedy starring Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleason, and Ralph Fiennes. Two hitmen go to Bruges to hide out while awaiting a call from their boss to make sure they are in the clear after a job goes wrong. This is my 2nd favorite movie of 2008, one that i could seriously watch a few times a week. It is absolutely hilarious, with Colin Farrell turning in the performance of his career, with such a dark tongue-in-cheek style to his wallowing in despair. It is expertly written, a very well-crafted script, and tossing in sub-characters like a midget and a drug-selling beauty do nothing but up the ante on the fun. Ralph Fiennes is also perfect as a boss with a bit of anger management. With a great story and THE best ending of the year, this movie is straight-up masterpiece.

Mondays Movies

Eyes Wide Shut - ***1/2 (8/10)
- 1999 sexual drama/thriller starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, directed by Stanley Kubrick. Tom and Nicole play a married couple, and after an argument where the wife describes a very sexual encounter with a Marine years ago, the husband becomes jealous and can't stop thinking about it. To make matters worse, he ends up in a very high-rank (i guess thats how you put it) orgy where he is found out to not officially be a member, and he is warned his life is at stake if he searches them out again. The movie is really sexual, as the orgy scenes take up quite a bit of time, and they are done tremendously well, and might be the highlight of the film. Tom and Nicole are great, and the ending raises a lot of questions as to the convictions or answers our characters might have arrived at.

Resident Evil: Apocalypse - *1/2 (3/10)
- 2004 sequel to the first Resident Evil starring Milla Jovovich. This is after the outbreak in Raccoon City, and focuses on the people trying to escape the quarantined city. I have never actually watched the whole thing, as i usually turned it off after 15 or 20 minutes, but giving it a whole go, i think it is easily the worst of the series. A very dumbed-down movie, with generic action scenes, and even weaker characters (everyone was just a different portrayal of "badass"). What makes it worse, for how much action they hurl and pile on you, the ending is so incredibly anti-climactic it could pretty much ruin the movie for anyone who DID like it.

Step Brothers [re-watch] - ***1/2 (8/10)
- 2008 comedy starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly. A 40 year old son living at home and a 39 year old son living at home are forced to become step brothers and room together when their parents are married. It is a completely preposterous premise, and none of it is set in realistic terms, but its a hell of a lot of fun. Ferrell and Reilly are hilarious, both at the top of their game, and their chemistry and different bag of comedic tricks blend very well for a great comedy. This was one of my fave comedies of 2008, and one of my favorite Ferrell flicks.
