Highwayman

No clue who the actors were but the summary is pretty much a ex insurance person has a weird fetish with car accidents so he goes around killing women with his car. I enjoyed it quite alot actually. it's a weird movie especially because he becomes a cyborg after a car accident.

Mum and Dad (2008)

f'n terrifying British horror. Polish girl finds herself prisoner in the home of mum and dad, two whackjobs who've made a family from kidnapping people and forcing them to love them in return. Not usually a fan of excessive violence but the juxtaposition in this film is superb and along with a convincing backstory, great psychology and tremendous gritty acting makes this a rather quality offering.

We need to talk about Kevin (2011)

Structured like a horror version of Annie Hall, the movie is so powerful in its examination of a mother left haunted by her son's killing streak that the unconvincing scenes leading up to the tragic event can easily be forgiven. Tilda Swinton is incredible in the main role and the others do the best they can with underdeveloped characters.

Mission Impossible:Ghost Protocol

Saw MI:Ghost Protocol and man what a treat it was.I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it turned out to be.I think it's much better than the last MI movie.The action sequences were breathtaking.

Tom Cruise was the man.I was expecting more from Josh Hollaway since it was his first major work since Lost but still he was fine in his role.Supporting cast was great especially Simon Pegg.I would recommend this movie to every action flick fan.

You can guess how awesome this movie was coz now m deciding whether to see the movie 2nd time or Sherlock Holmes for the first time.

THE HANGOVER PART II

Two years after the disastrous bachelor party fiasco in Las Vegas, Stu is preparing to get married in Bangkok with teh rest of the Wolf Pack along for the ride. A night of drinking once again leads to mayhem as Stu, Alan, & Phil wake up in a hotel in the middle of Bangkok with no recollection of the night before and Stu's future brother in law, Teddy, missing. The Wolf Pack has to band together once again to bring Teddy home safely and get to the wedding on time.


I just saw this movie and I have to say it was exactly what I thought it would be. Basically, they made the exact same movie for a 2nd time, only changing the setting & turning up the raunchiness. That right there is one of the film's major problems. Not only does the story hit just about every beat from the first film, but much of the film is dedicated to reminding you of what happened in the first one. Some might say its unfair to compared 2 to 1, but I say its fair game when this film constantly brings up the first film. Just to list some examples, the movie begins with Phil calling Doug's wife Tracy to let her know what happened. Why? Well because that's who they called in the first movie. Kim Jeong is in the movie again. Why? Because he was in the first one. Stu is getting married in this one...because the first movie was about a wedding and Stu was the only one not married (well except for Alan, but come on, that ain't happening). And like I said, the story hits just about all the same beats as the first, move for move.

The film unfortunately fails at taking advantage of trying to do new things with the story. For example, Doug, the unfortunate lost groom of the first film, is barely included in the action at all. Stu & Phil seem completely unchanged from their experiences in Vegas. I was kind of hoping that Phil, having almost lost the family life he once tired of, would have become the more responsible & cautious one while Stu, having gotten a taste of the wild man he can be, would have been more willing to let his inhibitions go by this point. They probably could have had some fun with that. And the changes they do make (lost teenage brother in law instead of a groom) don't add anything and feel rather hollow. Doug felt like the glue that held the group together and the other 3 needed to band together because they all legitimately loved him & wanted to save him. Teddy is really just an excuse to keep them in Bangkok to keep the story the same formula as the first as Phil has no connection to him & Alan flat out hates him.

And that brings me to my biggest problem with the movie: Alan. In the original film, he was downright awesome. He was the most memorable character of the main three. He was a socially inept idiot sure, and their problems turned out to be his fault, but he was innocent & good natured enough to forgive all his flaws. And of course he was also really funny. Here? He's downright mean & self centered. There comes a point in the movie where Alan got so grating that I honestly would not have blamed Phil & Stu if they had left in Bangkok to fend for himself.

Now it sounds like I'm hating on the movie, but no. I'm just pointing out that its an inferior rehash of the first. That doesn't mean it doesn't have merit though. For starters the film has some pretty big laughs. I am willing to forgive a lot with comedy as long as its funny and there are some pretty good shocking & gross stuff here that actually works. And even though Alan got really grating this time around, Stu & Phil are just as great as ever and I do enjoy a lot of the interactions. And even though they through a monkey just as a replacement for the baby in the first film, that Monkey was pretty damn funny at points.

So at the end of the day, I wouldn't say the Hangover 2 is an absolute must see like the original is, but if you do see it, I don't think you'll feel like you wasted your time.

6/10

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

My Rating: 8/10

First off, I'm giving this a rating based on action movies. If I'm looking at Oscar potential, it would obviously be a lot lower, but hey, it's Mission Impossible, not The Hurt Locker. That being said...

This movie was great. It has all the right ingredients: action, humor, a sexy broad and and one of the most intense sequences in a movie I have ever seen.

First, the action. Brad Bird (of The Incredibles fame) paced the action well. It started right out the gate and let up at just right moments, allowing us to catch out breath; we didnt have too much time though as the next action packed sequence was right around the corner.

Simon Pegg reprised his roll as Benji, although this time around, he is given a bigger part, since he is now a field agent. Pegg's perfect timing and charm added the perfect amount of humor in the midst of all the action.

Paula Patton....damn. That's all I need to say.

Again, one of the most intense sequences I've seen in a movie has to be the Dubai window climbing sequence. Lots of gasps throughout the entire scene. Well done!

The only two real complaints I have with the movie is, first, there was no real villain. It just seemed more like a bunch of people working together to do something bad. After Mission Impossible 3 having such an awesome villain, it was disappointing not having the same type of villain in this one.

The second complaint, the cheese title card. I know, something stupid to notice, but it was VERY cheesy.

Overall, a great action flick and definitely one that you should see in theaters.

Final Destination 5

6/10


Best film in the franchise since the second entry. Good, creative death sequences. Better cast than the fourth film. Loved the wraparound ending that ties this film to the first. It's nowhere near being a masterpiece, but it serves its purpose as a popcorn-muncher. The only thing I really had a problem with was the smallest of missed opportunities. In the first film, the music they played during the premonition matched the premonition (John Denver's "Leaving on a Jet Plane"). In this film, they play Kansas's "Dust in the Wind". It's called being observant people; you have a much better horror movie music option than that. Why not use Metallica's "For Whom the Bell Tolls" (the line during the chorus that uses the title of the song followed by "time marches on")? Not to sound morbid or anything...but they chose John Denver's song in the original film because the premonition dealt with passengers on a plane and Denver did, in fact, die in a plane crash. The Metallica song would have been the perfect choice because of the content of the lyrics and the fact that band bassist Cliff Burton died in a bus crash. You're also tying this film with the first film so that would have given an extra emphasis on the connection! It's the smallest of aggravations, I know...but I can't stand missed opportunities (one of my pet peeves really).

The Muppets Movie

8/10

I love the Muppets! I used to love them when I was a kid but I sort of forgot about them as I grew up. Then I heard Jason Segel (who I'm a big fan of) was writing a new Muppets movie. As the Muppets started popping up online and on TV shows like RAW, I started to get a little bit excited about this movie. But in Aus, we had to wait a couple of months longer. But no worries because It lived up to the hype and was a funny, entertaining movie with hilarious 5-second long cameos from some of my favourite celebrities like Dave Grohl, John Krasinski, Neil Patrick Harris, Jack Black and a few of the others.

The songs were catchy and I even appreciate them even though their main audience is children. Props to Bret McKenzie and Jason Segel who I'm sure would've been involved in the song writing process.

And how could you not love Amy Adams. My god she is a beautiful woman. Her humour is great and that really came across in her songs. It's good how the main storyline for the humans didn't take anything away from the Muppets and their story. Great writing by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller.

Highly recommended movie.

Three...Extremes

This is an anthology of 3 short horror films, each directed by a famous director from Hong Kong, Japan and Korea. Each film is about 40 minutes long. As the name suggests, the films are touted as some of the most extreme stuff you will ever see. And to some extent, they live up to that name.

Each film has its own style of horror that more or less adheres to its country's norm. Korean films tend to be artistic and dreamy at times. Hong Kong films are more straightforward with horror and gore. Japanese films create a sense of foreboding, with a gloomy atmosphere. All these aspects are faithfully and respectively retained in the 3 films that make up Three...Extremes.

The first film is Dumplings, directed by Fruit Chan (Hong Kong). And boy, this is probably one of the most twisted stuff you will ever see. The story is about a woman, who is aging, childless and has to endure her husband's extra-marital affairs. In desperation, she goes to see a person named 'Auntie Mei', who is famous for making dumplings that when eaten, apparently restore youthful looks to women. However, these dumplings have a secret ingredient that you will not wish to know. And when you do, be prepared for the nastiest, grossest stuff you have ever seen!!

Suffice to say, Dumplings is the best film out of the three. This is an example of how truly twisted asian psychological horror can be. Even if you are like me, not easily grossed out, there are some really discomforting scenes. And they are so realistically shot that they do make you squeamish. The film explores the obsession of women with looks and how far they may go to satisfy such needs. The ending scene is seriously messed up and will linger long in your mind.

Good plot, disturbing scenes...you may never want to eat after watching Dumplings. DON'T MISS THIS!

The second film is Cut, directed by Chan-Woon Park (Korea). This is more of a black comedy rather than outright horror. And it contains all the elements of Korean horror - artistry, introspection of social issues and an ending that needs to be interpreted properly by the viewer for understanding what actually happened.

Cut is the story of a film director and his wife, who are taken unawares at night, when a psychopathic guy who had been an extra in several of the director's films enters their home and subjects them to a horrific ordeal. The psychopath ties up the director, superglues his wife's hands to a piano and starts cutting off one of her fingers every 5 minutes. His motive? Well, he feels that the director has it all - he is rich, has a comfortable life and to top it all, is a decent guy well liked by everybody for his good nature. How unfair is that? Rich guys must not also be good guys, they must be immoral. Otherwise, what do the poor people like these extras have that is uniquely theirs?

So, can the director save his wife? Will he be tempted to 'sin'? Is he really a good guy? And what are the skeletons in the closet that reveal themselves during such an ordeal?

Cut is a brilliant movie in the genre of black comedy. It addresses the question as to what circumstances cause a person to become a psychopath. And it also questions whether people are really all that they seem. This film is a work of art and the ending is excellently done.

The third film is Box, directed by the famous Takashi Miike (Japan). It tells the story of two girls who worked as contortionists under the guidance of their father. The 2 girls could contort their bodies and twist themselves to fit into boxes, upon which their father would shoot a dart at each box, and the boxes would open to reveal flowers where the girls had been. It is clear that the father is also partial to one of the girls and considers her as the better performer....and maybe as something more than just as a daughter.

However, all this is past. The story takes us to the present, and to the life of an adult novelist, Kyoko (who may or may not be one of the girls). She has recurring nightmares about being trapped in a plastic sheet & fire. What is the connection between these nightmares, and the contortionists? If Kyoko is one of the girls, What happened to the other girl? And what secret guilt does Kyoko harbor?

You may not understand much from what I have written, but that is because Box is a non-linear movie. It blurs the distinction between reality and dreams. The plot is fairly understandable, but it needs some intelligence to figure out what the hell is actually happening. The film explores themes of incest, pedophilia and sibling rivalry in a remarkable manner. At the end, the interpretation of the film as a whole is left to the viewer.

Box is a good film, but opinions may vary depending on the viewer's taste and understanding of the film. I liked it very much, and it is a worthy addition to the other two.

-----

SUMMARY: Must watch for fans of psychological horror. As one who watches many foriegn films, I can say that countries like Japan and Korea are masters of horror. Unlike Hollywood, whose plots are too stupid and involve badly constructed scenes/ghosts (some exceptions being Saw, the first movie, Descent 1 & 2 and remakes of japanese horror) and unlike Indian Cinema (Tamil, Telugu, Hindi movies), whose idea of a horror movie is just plain amateurish except for one or two, these guys are aware that the masses do not get spooked by actual ghosts and take note of the plot. The horror movies are often investigative, inquiring and even address social issues. The right formula for success.

VERDICT: Extremely Excellent!
