Movie poster
I came across a copy of this film in my library and as it had a cast of Bela Lugosi, Lionel Barrymore and Lionel Atwell, I thought I would give it a shot.  The first thing I noticed was that this film was from MGM and not Universal so already there were some differences in the quality (this movie seemed a lot more "campy" than the Universal classics).  The movie starts out with …

Shaun of the Dead
I must have watched this film 100 times now, the more you watch it, the funnier it gets. Full of subtle human and not for the fainr of heart, its a film you definately have to sit down and pay attention to.

District 9
District 9 is one of those movies that I bought on DVD (though I soon upgraded to blu-ray) on a whim and wasn't burned by a bad movie. This was one of those times that I wish I watched the movie in theaters, and that when the hype behind a hit movie is largely justified.      STORY      In 1982, a giant alien ship grinds to a halt above Johannesburg, South …

The Terminator
The Terminator has been one of those movies that I've been a fan of since the 90's, and it seems like with age, you end up loving it even more. With Arnold Schwarzenegger's movies, I consider this among his absolute best, second only to the mighty Total Recall.      It's also interesting to note that if you ask around a lot of Terminator fans, most will tell you …

In The Mouth Of Madness
First of all, I'd like to thank a certain penpal of mine who brought this movie to my attention. Otherwise, I probably would have ignored it.      Most John Carpenter fans don't consider the 90's his best decade in terms of movies, though I think this movie is a pretty underrated horror diamond in the rough. While my favorite horror titles from the 90's are Event …

Godzilla (Gojira)
  Since this is my first review with anything related to Godzilla, I'd like to say that I was a big Godzilla fan from 1997-2002 since at the time, I thought there was hardly anything as fun as seeing big monster fights with a huge dollop of cheesy English dubbing from the Japanese actors in the numerous Godzilla sequels. In my initial fandom, I thought Godzilla: King of the Monsters (the …

Brazil
**** out of ****    Apparently, some people actually doubt the genius of Terry Gilliam. Here we have one of the most obviously imaginative minds working in the film industry of today and yesteryear, and people literally have the nerve to challenge his brilliance. Maybe they find themselves turned off by what he's been directing recently (which really isn't all that bad, with the …

Poster for the movie
** out of ****    Robert Harmon's "The Hitcher" is a crowd-pleaser slasher movie. The original script that didn't make it to the screen was a lot darker and violent and was therefore scrapped (because darkness and violence is just no good), the suspense isn't too slow-burn for a majority audience so that it's easily accessible, and it'd got a big name in the cast that everyone …

Blue Velvet
**** out of ****    In the fictional logging town of Lumberton, writer-director David Lynch has created an urban landscape pretty enough for a postcard. In a creepy opening, we see men on trucks waving from the streets, dads watering the grass, and flowers growing in front of a white picket fence. The town is a portrait of what an idealistic 1950's society must have been like; …

Godzilla (Gojira)
**** out of ****    The original 1954 version of "Godzilla" - AKA "Gojira" - evades the implications of its B-movie exteriors. Here we have a monster movie that is not really just a monster movie. If it were, it would not have been remembered. Instead, the film impacted those who saw it during its original run. It took a few years for it to hit overseas in America; and under an …

Dead Alive (Unrated) (Sp) (1993)
**** out of ****    I love blood. I love guts. I love gore. I love anything (artificial) that flows in large amounts, even if we aren't speaking of bodily fluids. But if we are, then movie blood is what I always crave. The more the merrier is my motto when it comes to such a thing. I'm not easily offended or shocked by movie violence; and in the case of features like "The Evil …

Deep Red
**** out of ****    This is the quintessential Dario Argento thriller. Examine the director's entire career - down to every last film he's ever made before and after this - and you'll see that each one contains just a hint of "Deep Red" in its DNA. Argento has been around (in cinematic terms) for a while, since his debut feature in 1970, and if you know his name and have seen a …

Movie poster
*** out of ****    "The Warriors" begins with a particularly stylish opening montage that depicts several gangs - each supposedly handling no weapons, and each limited to about nine members or less - boarding and leaving trains, riding buses and driving cars; all too one similar location. We could just as easily follow any single gang, but the one we follow throughout the narrative …

Hard Candy
Tackling important matters in very modern contexts, 'Hard Candy' is at best a difficult movie to absorb and watch. What starts as potentially a cautionary tale takes on many nuances and twists as a young teenager hooks up with a much older man via the Internet. As a seeming innocent teenager and as the clever, methodical creep both characters come together tragically, but in ways that seem (and unfortunately …

Hard Candy
This is one of the absolute dumbest movies I've ever seen in my life.  When you get past the extremely contrived storyline and characters and heavy-handed feeling of the film, all you got is a "shock factor for shock factor's sake" type of film, and a horribly done one at that.  My biggest complaint with this ungodly terrible movie was Ellen Page's character.  …

25th Anniversary Special Edition DVD (front)
**** out of ****    Characterized by its signature catchy lyrics, dancing trannies, midnight movie stylistics, and blood-red pouty lips on the common poster; "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" was an unmistakable cult phenomenon that took the world by storm in 1975 by introducing something new: audience participation. Since it's the characters and the songs that the fans of the musical …

Session 9
If nothing else, director/screenwriter/editor Brad Anderson possesses proven faculties for generating palpable dread and coaxing arresting performances from a gifted cast - and David Caruso, as well! For those eager to see cardboard Caruso diverge from his usual MO, this is perhaps the most ideal example available of the crime drama star's acting, and for once or twice, he's quite good! As …

District 9
Despite the movie's less-than-subtle messages about humanity, I found this to be a strong film because of the fact that the characters have decent levels of depth to them, which is one of the main deciding factors for why I like District 9.  In particular, I found Wikus's change in character, physically and in terms of personality, the most interesting.  The cool action scenes …

scary movies
         What people do to each other is more horrifying than what scary monsters might do to us. Frankenstein's creation only may be out there. Psycho killers certainly are.      It's not funny but in a way horror is like comedy. Something scares you or it doesn't, just as something makes you laugh or chuckle or it doesn't. There …

Godzilla (Gojira)
I just completed watching Gojira (1954), and while I still like its Amercan adaptation, Godzilla:  King of the Monsters, the original movie is much better.       I think Gojira is much better because the movie has a smoother flow from not being edited and that as a whole, it has a much stronger emotional punch (mostly thanks to the inclusion of subtitles and with more …
