Summary= Great comedy about falling in love, doing what ever it takes to be with the one you love, and mermaids. Stars Tom Hanks, Daryl Hannah, Eugene Levy and the late great John Candy. A great old flick that is fun from start to finish. Revisit these stars to when they were begining there carriers and see what it was that made them who they are today.
Summary=A tight, dark and tense movie which turns into a Hollywood sized action picture with some superbly crafted scenes. Great effects which don’t overpower the movie, and the biggest thing of all is the story, great reveal and a well woven story lifting you to the finale. An excellent short.
All righty, well the Toronto Film Festival wrapped up a number of days ago and while I didn’t get a chance to see very much simply because I’m a poor, shell-of-a-man, I did manage to have open tickets to see as many midnight showings as I wanted. I managed to … [Read More]
Title=The Complete Superman Collection
Summary= A must have for Superman fans. Each DVD is formatted in widescreen. Contains all 4 Superman movies, which is great because the 3rd is very hard to find. Brings back memories, and makes you feel like a kid again.
Summary=Good cinematography, excellent score and strong actors, combined with a simple yet haunting script and you have a scary horror movie that builds tension superbly and makes you jump out of your seat, without slashing and hacking everything in sight. A very good movie that shows the Philippine film industry knows about style, acting and horror. Unfortunately it suffers from a not so perfect DVD transfer.
Summary= A difficult documentary to watch. Timothy Treadwell’s lack of cognitive thought processes will both bother you and fill you with wonder. There are moments in this picture which could never be captured on film if it wasn’t for this simple minded hippy. Poor interviews, with the exception of a few intelligent people who save this movie from being the largest collection of dim wits ever assembled.
Title=Broken Flowers Soundtrack
Summary= A great mix of Western Jazz, Classical, Caribbean and Indie Rock which will impress the artistic, intelligent and Don Juan’s alike. Smooth listening from start to finish.
Title=Jimi Hendrix: Deluxe Edition
Summary=A good purchase for the performances, and in particular the acoustic performance, but add the interviews and the making of featurette, and you have a classic DVD for the fan. If you’re neither a fan of Hendrix or the guitar, then this is definitely not for you.
Summary=True horror, suspense and terror unflinchingly shown onscreen. Some rough dialogue early on can jar you out of the movie, but this has some truly terrifying moments. Natural performances, with a stunning turn from the actor playing the psychopath. The “true story” aspect really does hurt the movie and causes more problems at the end, if this had been left out the movie would have scored higher.
Summary= An impressive display by Bill Murray playing an over the hill Don Juan searching for his son. An artistic driven film which starts out slow but soon picks up and is very enjoyable. Slightly lacking in performance chemistry and affective dialogue. Good performances by Sharon Stone, Jessica Lange and Bill Murray.
Summary=An uncompromising story, hard hitting, uncomfortable, but very meaty and enjoyable. With strong performances from a huge cast, and excellent writing, this makes for a very good movie. Watch out for some leads playing unexpected roles both excellently and not so. Well worth a watch for some thinking material and real entertainment.
Title=The Transporter 2
Summary=Snagging my demographic isn’t really all that hard. Show some amazing stunts, lots of fights with decent martial arts, and finally add in a hot chick with guns in her hands and you can pretty much guarantee a huge male audience will show up to see your film.
