Very Bad Things review

Posted : 10 years, 10 months ago on 11 February 2007 01:26 (A review of Very Bad Things)

This was a surprisingly interesting film. It reminds me of 'A Simple Plan' which I highly respect. How one little secret can explode into a grotesque and outrageous chain of events.

Christian Slater proves useful in this film aswell as his name Boyd that made me laugh everytime i heard it.

The ending leaves me feeling hopeless though. I guess everyone is punished for the parts they play.

Anyone laughing?

Well most likely.

I however didn't get the appeal of this show. Everyone would rage about it coming back for a new series but all I saw was a generic sitcom.

The only feature that saves this programme is the addition of Robert Lindsey to the cast, who added the only talent to the mix.

It's like a modern day Vicar of Dibley but that was only funny in the early 90s wen i was a pre-teen.

A Film For Fools

Posted : 10 years, 10 months ago on 7 February 2007 01:12 (A review of Donnie Darko)

*Yawn*

What a snooze fest. I've had naps more productive than this film. It tries to have a philosophy when its clearly mundane and ordinary. I hope somebody lost their job over this so the footsteps can never be re-trod in.

The whole plot was pointless, it literally makes itself redundant and the whole thing a waste of time. Yes, its weird but that shouldn't be enough for critical acclaim! Majority of the characters just seem so phoney and fake with no real intention of being memorable.

Jake Gyllenhaal is a terrible actor. I'm amazed that he still weasels his way into Hollywood. Him AND his sister need to get a career like a crash test dummy or mugasaurus. I'd gladly drop a plane on their Hollywood Home.

I don't know why, I just do.

I didn't go to the cinema to see this film nor get it on DVD straight away. I remember I saw a documentary on how it was made.

Also, the fact that most of the scientific facts in the world were ignored just to make the film more 'cuddly' for kids.

However, I just knew i'd enjoy it. I don't know why but theres something about this film that made me like it. Maybe the graphics, maybe the characters, maybe the themes. I don't kno but i'll rate it 6 regardless.

This is an oldie!

Posted : 10 years, 11 months ago on 24 January 2007 12:49 (A review of The Court Jester)

I can remember this as one of the earliest films out of my generation and out of my comprehension to watch.

I'd watch it constantly trying to get the humour of a time now gone. It was mildly entertaining and I can still remember some of the classic gags. It seemed so much easier to be a script-writer back in those days.

If I ever see this on DVD, i'm snapping it up before the next ice age!

The Real Deal

Posted : 10 years, 11 months ago on 19 January 2007 11:39 (A review of X-Men)

From viewing this series (aswell as other Marvel classics), I learnt about the Marvel Universe. Just by watching a few episodes disjointed I was able to fall in love with the characters and the stories. Plus, the series also dealt with loads of issues like race and discrimination which I never saw in any other programme I watched as a youth.

The series portrayed lots of characters over the years and managed to make them all unique in certain ways, memorable and even useless but this TV series placed the building blocks to further develop X-Men in any medium. It's a hero to its cause, without this a lot of people wouldn't care about all the sequels and spin-offs now.

I have always held a grudge against Fox when they dropped this show. They ruined something beautiful.

Why bother?

Posted : 10 years, 11 months ago on 13 January 2007 09:01 (A review of High School Musical)

I watched this film with my cousins as they got it as a christmas present. I didn't know what to think when I saw the DVD cover.

The message is boringly clear from the beginning. About stereotypes and groups at high school but as I watched my young cousins watch this and their IQs drop as they sing along to the most uninspiring lyrics, I felt there was no educational or moral value either.

I know these days genres are thinning for new ideas but this just shows what a wrong direction producers are looking in. Even if I had a chance to go over the script/casting, it's not even salvageable.
