Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

lol, I watched Thelma & Louise last night. Overall I give it a 7/10. Not too bad of a movie. Would've rather that they really went on a terror.

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Wow, nobody has posted something since Week's, here we go:

INSIDIOUS

After all my friends telling me to watch it and how awesome it was, I downloaded it. I really love Horror Movie's, and I almost never get real "Shock moments", but with this one...Scared the crap out of me like 5-6 Times!!! It's the little things like the Ghost running around in the House, or suddently the Demon makin a Chaos in the Boy's room...If u watch it, better with Home Cinema or headphones on.
Only letdown point: the End: Don't want to spoil, in case somebody hasn't seen it, but it was very predictable. Not a bad ending, but saw it coming...Overall, it's been a long time since I enjoyed that much a Horror movie!

9/10

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Hopefully that'll arrive on lovefilm instant soon. Been wanting to watch it for a while.

Might as well update myself whilst I'm here.


The Disappearance of Alice Creed


British independent horror/thriller with the ravishing Gemma Arteton in joint lead role. Very interesting film for a good hour stretch. Woman efficiently taken hostage by two men in an abandoned house, story then cleverly unravels to show that all is not quite as it seems with some genuinely unexpected and well crafted twists. Kind of loses it way in the last Act but still well worth a watch for how the plot intelligently develops from out of nowhere and leaves you on edge as to who to trust / root for.

I loved the first half where it was mysterious and had things like the wee boy dancing in the house, great scene. The second half was poor and took all of the mystery away when you saw the demon full on and stuff. Took all the horror awa y but it's the best western horror I've seen in a long time

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Well after almost two years I finally got around to seeing Toy Story 3.

Now first off, this is the typical Toy Story plot. The gang gets split up, one of them comes to their resuce and they all have to get back to Andy's house in time. It's the same storyline we've come to know and love by now. Nonetheless, the movie is a unqiue experience and sets itselfn apart from the previous instalment. The thing I liked about the thrid instalment was that despite it's 'if it ain't broken, don't fix it formula' is that it has this darker, more gloomy feel to it and deals with some adult themes not seen in the previous two films. The cuteness is still there and the jokes are deliver laugh out loud moments but there's this gritty feel to Toy Story 3 that sets it apart from it's predecessor. The pacing is fantastic as well. If it's one thing I always loved bout the series, or any Pixar movie in general, is that they just know how to pace their moives well and get the audience involved in the film and take them on a roller coaster ride of emotions. There are several instances throughout where you think it's going one way, you're cheering on the good guys and then bam! The movie does a 180. I HATED the villains in this movie and when justice is served, boy is it served! The last few minutes were really touching as well. Overall this is a great film and while I'm not too sure if it is my favourite of the three (2 was fantastic!) it's damn sure great to cap of one of the best shows of all time.

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

A Lonely PLace To Die (2011)
I've seen a lot of lud budget thriller movies in the past and only a few have managed to actually give me thrills. A Lonely Place To Die is one of them. The plot is pretty simple. 5 mountaineers are exploring the Scottish Highlands when they discover a Serbian girl buried in a small chamber in the wilderness. They're plan to return to safety takes them on a game of cat and mouse as the girl's kidnappers trail them in hot pursuit. The girl's father has also hired a team of bounty hunters to deliver 5 million euros in return for her.

Now I don't like to go in depth in story when I review a movie because I don't like to spoil movies for people. I just give an overview of the plot and throw in my 2cents. With all that being said ***SPOILER ALERT*** People die in this movie. The deaths of certain individuals don't make you wanna cry because of the movie's strong characterization because that's not one of its strong points. The characters are bland. What makes the deaths sad is that their so unexpected and when it's expected it just happens in such a gruesome way that it will evoke emotion. You're gonna sit and picture yourself in the person's shoes and it will leave you feeling sick quite frankly.

The movie has it flaws. The directing is gimmicky. The camera shakes a lot, there's the use of Point of View footage and the music used sometimes just force a scene. Now that may sound like a bad thing but it's not. The gimmicky directing is done so well that it serves purpose. It achieves what the movie sets out to do and that's keep you the edge of your seat. Every moment is a heart pounding and breath taking one. The movie will have you at the edge of your seat throughout.

This is a great movie go see it. Very underrated, very underhyped. It's a movie you're probably only gonna watch once but you're gonna be damn glad that you saw it.

****1/2

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Better Off Dead (1985)

After the love of his teenage life breaks up with him, Lane Myers decides that he would be better off dead and makes several bad attempts at suicide. In dealing with his crazy life filled with wacky characters, his shattered love life, and teenage problems in general, Lane has to find happiness in his life again.

This movie is HILARIOUS!!! 80s classic for sure. It follows the same formula as any other teen comedy of the time period, but the wackiness is amped up so much that at times it almost feels like a parody. The cartoonish/absurd humor really makes the film stands out and provides many great running gags and memorable characters, my favorite of course being the persistent Paper Boy (I want my two dollars!!!). Great comedy.

8/10

Commando (1985)

Retired special forces veteran John Matrix is forced into an assassination plot by terrorists that have kidnapped his daughter as a method of coercion. Realizing that they will just kill his daughter anyway, John breaks free & goes on a highly destructive race against time to locate his daughter's captors and kill them all.

As a "movie", its terrible. Bad writing, questionable acting, and every action movie cliche you can possibly think of. But.....ITS SOOOOOO FUCKING AWESOME!!!! Its so over the top, so gloriously macho, and so amazingly fun, that I can't help but love it. I will always say that Arnold's best film is Terminator 2, but that was a great film that advanced the way we looked at Cinema. This film is purely Arnold's grand opus. This is his signature piece because it exemplifies his entire career in one film. Everything that is good and bad about Arnold is front and center, magnified, and celebrated. One note acting, cheesy one liners, bad ass action sequences, extreme charisma, its all there and blown up to insane proportions. Part of me wishes this film had happened at the end of Arnold's career so that it would have served as an awesome farewell to my favorite Austrian Brawny man! This movie is pure fun. Plain & simple. I love it!>

8/10

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Catacombs


Victoria (Sossamon) receives an invitation from her sister Carolyn (Pink). The first line of the film is a voice-over: "My sister sent me a postcard, all it said was 'Come to Paris. It'll be good for you.' 48 hours after I arrived, she and everyone I'd met were dead."

Victoria arrives in Paris and Carolyn takes her home, where one of Carolyn's friends scares her with a mask. After settling in, the sisters tour Paris and shop. During a break Carolyn tells Victoria about a secret rave in the Catacombs of Paris that night. There is a long line of people at the catacombs, but Carolyn is friends with the bouncer and they are allowed in without waiting. Her entrance fee into this location was forced "services" by her friends. Carolyn is given two flashlights and a map to the rave and they arrive to hear an introduction by host Jean-Michel (Mihai Stanescu). During the rave, Victoria begins to feel dizzy and needs water for her medication. Jean-Michel escorts her to the private VIP area of the party, where they find Carolyn and a group of friends.

Jean-Michel pours Victoria a large glass of absinthe, and tells her of a killer living in the catacombs. Raised by a Satanic Cult, the killer, "Antichrist," feeds on people who get lost in the Catacombs. Most of the guys dismiss the story as a myth and decide to go skinny dipping. Victoria declines to join them, and becomes lost as she heads back to the rave. She is joined by Carolyn, and as the sisters attempt to find their way back, someone grabs Carolyn and drags her off into the darkness. Victoria finds Carolyn dead and panics. A man in a goat mask begins to chase her, and she finds shelter hiding in a storage room. When the man arrives and starts a generator, it appears that the storage room is his home. Victoria escapes and runs back toward the crowds.

She has scarcely returned when the Prefecture of Police burst in and interrupt the rave. Victoria is caught up in a mob and hits her head, and when she regains consciousness she is alone in the catacombs. She encounters a man named Henri who tries to help her, but every exit they come to is blocked. Henri falls through a rotted walkway while they are searching for a way out and injures his leg. Victoria tries to help him, but eventually gives up; she takes his map and leaves him in the dark, striking out on her own. When she finds an exit she is frightened by someone on the other side trying to get in, and she flees, fearing it is the Antichrist. After a chase through the tunnels she hides behind a wall column, armed with a mining pick. When the pursuer approaches, she strikes out blindly with the pick and hits him.

Shortly after, Carolyn and her friends show up and tell Victoria that it was all just a prank. They wonder why Victoria is crying until they see Jean-Michel lying dead, felled by the blow of Victoria's pick. Carolyn screams at the exhausted and terrified Victoria, who lashes out with the pick and kills Carolyn and her remaining friends. Escaping at last from the catacombs, covered in blood, Victoria returns to the airport in a taxi, and repeats the voice-over line which started the film.

Rate/Review:
7.5/10 I love horror movies. I was really surprised at this one. Watched it on FearNet onDemand. Great suspense once it really gets going. The second half which takes place in the Catacombs are dark but still are visually appealing. The twist at the end is great. I would recommend this for any horror film fan.
