I watched the last of the trilogy (Frontiere), was my least favorite of the 3 but definitely held my interest and was entertaining. Thanks for the recommendations JD, hope to hear more suggestions lol.
I think I'm gonna watch another French horror movie soon, a film called Haute Tension. Heard it's supposed to be pretty intense.
[/quote]It's one of those things that if it comes on the telly and there's nothing else going on, say no scheduled Magic the Gathering tournaments, it might be worth watching. Or you can just explore more of Henri-Georges Clouzot's work if you haven't (Like Wages of Fear). :D[/quote]
I absolutely intend to explore more of Clouzot's work.
You did? Well, ****, I'm glad. So ****ing good!Yeah, I watched A Page of Madness, silly, I recommend it to you. :P
I saw Nosferatu way way way back in the day, but have been meaning to watch it again ever since I watched Herzog's remake (which I really liked and had Isabelle Adjani in it, too!!!!). I see Kino released a nice looking box set of Murnau's stuff. Added to the wish list! Have you seen any Josef Von Sternberg stuff?There's quite a bit. Have you ever watched any of Murnau's work, say, the silent Faust or Noseferatu?
Anytime you feel like recommending old, creepy movies you got an ear right here.You can or rather SHOULD. Faust is the APEX of silent film German expressionism. :D
I thought it was well done and I enjoyed it. I have to agree with JD that the end sort of got away from the director, it was a bit over the top. But even with that it was good. It had an interesting premise: what happens when regular people all of a sudden get super powers, not all are heroes. Seeing the genesis of a a regular guy essentially become a, for lack a better term, a super villain was interesting. Also the genesis of a hero. For those who have not seen it be warned: it is shot in "Blair Witch" Style of first person single shaky camera style. Some people have commented that they have to close their eyes at times to avoid getting nauseated. I have never had a problem with that sort of thing but I must admit I was feeling a little green at times. Perhaps it was because I slightly under the weather when I saw it. But overall this was a satisfying movie.
SPOiLER ALERT!! Dont read if you have not seen it!
A question for those who saw it: Ok, when the girl with the bright red hair stormed out of the room and you got a split second look at the stuff in her hair did you did you immediatly think it was barf? Am I weirdo for first thinking the guy just got freaky with his, uh, load? Of course I knew what really happened a few seconds later but the dude already showed signs he was going down a dark path and he was good with his powers. My first thought was "Oh gross he went' money shot on the poor girl!" Of course I felt like a dope afterwards because they would never show that sort of thing in PG movie, but for a split second I thought they did.
