Bangkok Dangerous

The usual hitman plot, and a remake of the '99 film of the same name.

Once again: What a waste of my time. Nicholas Cage perfoms really bad and his thai sidekick must be the most horrific actor they could have possibly found for this role.

The butterfly effect:
"Evan Treborn grows up in a small town with his single, working mother and his friends. He suffers from memory blackouts where he suddenly finds himself somewhere else, confused. Evan's friends and mother hardly believe him, thinking he makes it up just to get out of trouble. As Evan grows up he has less of these blackouts until he seems to have recovered. Since the age of seven he has written a diary of his blackout moments so he can remember what happens. One day at college he starts to read one of his old diaries, and suddenly a flashback hits him like a brick!" -imdb

Avoid if possible.

Try to imagine Solaris, right? It's that kind of film. But instead of leaving it in the hands of someone who can actually make that kind of film, it's been put in the hands of people who have about as much grasp on the concept of continuity as I have on the concept of not speaking my mind on the internet (read: none).

0/5



And before anyone comes up with this "Obviously you don't understand it..." well... you enjoy a movie simply because you understand it and other people don't? Seriously, you're more f*cked up than I am.

96 hours (alternative title: Taken)
Liam Neeson is an ex secret agent who travels to Paris to free his daughter when human traffickers abduct and auction her.

Absolutely stunning movie.

9.99/10

The International

with Clive Owen, Naomi Watts and Armin Mueller-Stahl

Basically it's a retold breakdown of the extremly criminal BCCI Bank in 1991. An Interpol agent and a New York prosecutor try to convict a group of corrupt bankers that want to finance a coup de etat in Liberia.

The acting is brillant. The most stunning perfomances come from danish actor Ulrich Thomsen who plays the CEO of the corrupt bank and from Brian O'Byrne who plays the "consultant", a professional hitman.

I've been waiting for a movie like this for years. Finally a good action thriller from good old Germany. However it could have deserved more running time than only 100 minutes. A movie like this should have lastet two hours or more.

8/10




...And yeah, the review was in the wrong thread before. rolleyes.gif

finally somone who agrees with me about this movie. Kutcher is the most over-rated actor since the late Emporer Nero.

This movie was pretty good actually, however it was marketed in a very strange way only being released in North America in January of this year, even though it debuted in France in 2008.


I have recently watched:

Eagle Eye ~ This movie is a wannabe thriller with a plot that is so unbelievable.

W. ~ "biopic" of George W. Bush's life, it was okay and rather unbiased in a way

My Name is Bruce Campbell ~ A really good "B" movie, with one of the most recognizable "B" movie stars, Bruce Campbell, star of the Evil Dead series. It is mildly entertaining and rather over the top at times but good fun all around

Le Mans

with Steve McQueen and Siegfried Rauch

This movie is about less more than the rivalry between a Porsche- and a Ferrari-Driver that race against each other in Le Mans. Cars and the race circus of Le Mans come to the fore. The result is an amazing action documentary with shots that are brillant even 38 years after the making.

Absolutely recommendable for everyone who likes motorsport!

Joint Security Area

After a shootout at the common security area at the border of the two Koreas, when two soldiers were murdered, Maj. Sophie E. Jean is assigned by the Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission to investigate the incident. The smart Major finds lack of consistency in the statements of the survivors, and in spite of being pressed by her superior, she interviews South Koreans Sgt. Lee Soo-hyeok and private Nam Sung-shik, and the North Korean Sgt. Oh Kyeong-pil, disclosing a tragic story of friendship

nuke.gif nuke.gif nuke.gif nuke.gif nuke.gif nuke.gif nuke.gif nuke.gif nuke.gif nuke.gif 10/10

I must say I usually don't like asian movies. They have a very conventional way of filmmaking. But this movie is a piece of coal that turned out to be a diamond. Great yet tragic plot, some very funny scenes and a good play by all actors.

Spoilers! (Not that it matters anyway)
Its so unbelievably crap i nearly died, the scene where he inflates the bags with his tires so his car floats up made me cry. I cant even think of 1 good aspect of this movie, there is some chick in it but Jason Statham was more naked then her during the entire film. He even strips during the fightscenes which ruins the only opportunity of something enjoyable. I wanted to tell you something about the plot as well to make it look like a review, but there was none.

-9/-10

Decided to raid my flat mates movie colection and dug out a horror flick i'd been meaning to see, so here's my short review of...



General summary?

A cameraman and reporter tail an LA Fire department crew for a night, following a medical call out to an apartment building they and the residents are sealed in by CDC and what would appear to be the army (Don't recall the CDC having an armed response wing, if they do I think I may be moving to the states to work lol).
As horror films tend to go if they involve any thing nastier than a cold things go tits up from there.

Opinion?

Throughout the film there is no soundtrack the sound effects of things happening in the actual presence of the camera and around the building combined with the clever use of how microphones being used by the cameraman and reporter give this a very unique feel to it which other films that use the: from the camera guy's perspective such as Diary of the dead (Nearly typed Dairy of the dead...bovine zombie horror anyone?) just don't have.

Really gets the viewer on edge, as in most zombie films, you know whats going to happen but the way the camera work is done and the simple lack of music to destract from what's going on just makes everything a bit more intense and scary.

A downer is the lack of detailed explanation to what caused it all if your not looking for it. I guess that could be considered a bonus as with some of the romero films it uses the lack of understanding of events to make them that bit more scary (Due to some of my own personal interests I kinda picked up on where the plot was headed shortly into the film but others may not).

Acting varies throughout the film, it can be so so at some points but in cases where extreme fear is being shown it is quite real and I felt sucked into that at least once during the film.

Rating?

I'd give this between an 8 and 10 out of 10, I'm not quite sure what I'd rate it as for sure as it'd take two viewings (which I'd happilly do) but it fit the bill for most things I look for in a horror: It was guininely (sp?) scary for me, I didn't actually feel the sudden urge to tastelessly laugh at something and make everyone in the room feel uncomfortable, the plot was not so simple that it took away from the film but not to complex so as to make it seem up itself (admitedly this shouldn't be hard for any horror movie to do) aaaand I actually thought: "Oh crap" when some of the bad things happened.

Never before in the history of man, was so much buggered up by so few.

Got bored of the same stuff on telly so I watched this one again.



Stars: Christian Bale, Taye Diggs.

Description:
In a futuristic world, a strict regime has eliminated war by suppressing emotions: Books, art and music are strictly forbidden and feeling is a crime punishable by death. Cleric Jon Preston (Bale) is a top ranking government agent responsible for destroying those who resist the rules. When he misses a dose of Prozium, a mind-altering drug that hinders emotion,Preston, who has been trained to enforce the strict laws of the new regime, suddenly becomes the only person capable of overthrowing it.

Opinion:
A superb action packed shooter that will keep you entertained all the way through, with stunning fight scenes and unbelievable gun battles. The intensity is something else. I recommend to all who like action films of the matrix style (though I believe It's better than the matrix - Less visible CGI usage, better fighting and better storyline).

Rating: 9.5/10

@JynX:
I seen the Spanish version of the movie the other night, It was called Rec. I was alright.

@NeMeSiS:
I agree there, Transporter 3 worst movie with Jason Statham ever

When I was done with Equilibium I watched Shooter



Stars: Mark Wahlberg, Michael Pena, Danny Glover.

Description:
When respected former Marine scout sniper Bob Lee Swagger (Walhberg) is pressed into service to stop and assassination attempt against the President, the unthinkable occurs: He's double crossed and framed for the attempt. Determined to prove his innocence , the rogue shooter is now in a high-tension race from every law enforcement agency in the country and a shadowy organization that wants him dead.

Opinion:
Good action film with lots of guns, twists and killing. Fans of Wahlberg would like this one, the second best movie I've ever seen him do. Lots of action, intensity and realistic storyline based on the shadowy world of the US government. Enjoyable all round movie.

Rating: 7.5 - 8/10

When I was younger, I used to love watching American Pie a like movies. So a few days ago I watched this one :

Sex Drive :



http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1135985/

Description :

Eighteen-year-old Ian Lafferty sets out on a cross country drive with his best friends Lance and Felicia in order to lose his virginity to a red-hot babe he met on the Internet. But the journey, filled with hilarious misadventures and raunchy escapades, teaches all three more than they expected about life and love. Ian Lafferty (Josh Zuckerman) can’t seem to catch a break. He’s taunted by his older brother Rex (James Marsden), shown up in the romance department by his 14-year-old younger brother and humiliated by his job at a mall donut shop. Getting nowhere with the girl of his dreams and longtime “best friend” Felicia (Amanda Crew), Ian resorts to the Internet for dates. He soon hooks up with Ms. Tasty, a flaming hot blonde who can’t wait to get busy. The only catch: Ian has to drive 500 miles from Chicago to Knoxville to consummate the deal. Egged on by his devil-may-care pal Lance (Clark Duke), Ian risks life and limb by appropriating “The Judge,” Rex’s prized vintage Pontiac GTO.

Rating :
8/10

Anyone who's a fan of "stupid" movies should see this one. It's pretty much like Eurotrip (<-- Must see)

QUOTE(IMDB)
The film is based on a true story of the 9th company during the Soviet invasion in Afghanistan in the 1980's. Young Soviet Army recruits are sent from a boot camp into the middle of the war in Afghanistan. The action is not like a boot camp at all. It is very bloody and dirty. The 9th company is defending the hill 3234. They are hopelessly calling for help. But help never comes. "This is war, you kill, or get killed", says the 9-th company leader Khohol (Bondarchuk). They believed that they served their country. But two years later that country ceased to exist.


It's basically Soviet Full Metal Jacket. Well, close enough anyways.

I'm in two minds about this, I wouldn't compare it to Full Metal Jacket, though it does have some similarities. (The structure of the movie for example, showing training before actual combat situations), it's also a lot different in it's own way (definitely highlighting the differences between the American and Soviet approach to conflict and training). I found the movie a bit hard to understand at times, I'm not sure if this is because I was watching it with subtitles... if you can speak Russian fluently you might find it easier to understand.

That said, definitely worth watching. If only to see Mi24s kicking ass tongue.gif

The drill scenes are rather a typical embellishment and a 1:1,5 copy of "Full Metal Jacket". Not necessary in my humble opinion.
Most of the scenes that actually take place in Afghanistan are entertaining though.

Speaking of the MI24s...You should give "Afghan Breakdown" a try if you can. It's a Russian-Italian movie about the conflict shot in 1990. I've heard that many veterans say it's the truest depiction of the Afghanistan war. A bit lengthy, but a package of awesome scenes without the computerized special effects. (Ever seen an air fleet of approximately 40 Mi-8/17 and Mi-24 in the skies?)

Warriors (TV)



It's a BBC picture about the early days of the Bosnia war. I had the chance to get my hands on this one and it's absolutely recommendable, in fact an awesome achievement for a TV production.

Intense, and depressing.

Room 1408

I gotta say I way thinking about something: is that possible to make a good film and horror that takes place in one room?
I dont like King but I gotta say: good film, but not horror.
Room 1408 is psychological horror based on Stephen King book on the same name. Mike Enslin is book writer. He decides to visit Room 1408 in Dolphin Hotel that is - as people think - cursed. Hotel manager (in this role Samuel L. Jackson) want to discourage Enslin, but he cant - so Mike get the key. After some time seemingly normal room shows it real face...

I think that quite good film, but I dont like King's style. I mean book and movie are psychological. THere are nearly no monsters, zeds etc. Hero simply goes crazy - and this is most scary. In fact - I am not sure if I am really on the same world after Room 1408 tongue.gif

Nice one, but could be better
7/10
