    This flick was pretty entertaining, not sure why so many people hated it. The Dark is a ghost story about a mother trying to find her missing daughter in a house tainted by a horrible history. Nothing groundbreaking or original, just entertainment.

    Decided to take a break from all the B-list horror flicks and actually watch a good film. A Separation won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film this year, so I was very excited to see it. The film is fantastic. Extremely well crafted with a great intricate story and top notch direction. I definitely want to see more films from Farhadi.

    Okay, back to watching horror lol

    Now THAT'S what I'm talking about!!! Released in America as Point Blank this French thriller has it all in spades. One of the best crime/suspense/thriller flicks I've seen in recent memory. It grabs you and doesn't let go until the credits roll, and was so absorbing that the 90 or so minutes felt more like 40. I won't bother explaining the plot, but rather say that if you haven't seen it already I highly recommend hitting it on Netflix streaming this weekend--and grab the popcorn for this one.

    Pointless and mostly bloodless. Useless. First off, from now on when I read uncensored/uncut/unrated on a dvd I will substitute 'we didn't even have to run this by anyone'. Just a severe by the numbers affair with ridiculous plot twists, bad acting and lame kills. Say what you will about Eli Roth's first two, there were moments in both where you really got a little sick at what happened to the characters. This is simply a cash in.



    This is much better. A horror anthology with sex as the main theme. Like all anthologies some parts are better than others. The first story is a little too on the nose and overly simple. An abusive rich couple abuse a homeless woman...who isn't what she appears to be. Not bad, just not enough there. The second story concerns nazis, giant penii that constantly ooze spunk, said spunk being collected to make a new prescription drug...and much more. Wraps up a little too easily without giving you some much needed explanations, but creepy and well acted enough to make it REAL interesting. The last story is the best though. A man with a girlfriend who humiliates him gets his revenge. Simple...yes, but there is more to it than that. And, once again...the acting is really good for an indy film. If you are looking for something different, seek this one out.

    I was thinking about watching Hostel 3 for ****s and giggles but yea, after reading your review I'm gonna stay away from it. I kind of figured it would suck since Eli Roth didn't direct it.

    Thanks for the recommendation Blotto, I'll definitely be watching that movie soon.

    We chose this Greek film knowing absolutely nothing about it, and wondered for at least the first 30 minutes "what the f*** is this supposed to be????" It was truly bizarre--and morbidly captivating in it's strangeness. It's quiet, slow, and they tell you nothing at all, which I think adds to the desire to understand who, and why, and what this is ultimately leading up to. As the characters slowly become more vocal and defined, the underlying scenario reveals itself and it all comes into focus. By the time we actually "got it" we were deep into it. I don't want to give up anything, but just to say we loved it in the end--which unsurprisingly was also pretty wtf. VERY different than anything we've seen lately--domestic OR foreign language. Highly recommended as art, but you'll need to be in a very patient state of mind to get through it.

    You should have seen it with a twitchy nervous audience...including a guy who laughed 'Cape Fear/DeNiro' style at some of the more uncomfortable awkward moments.

    So I had a few hours to kill the other day and I figuered "what the hell". This movie is billed as having real life Navy SEALs basically playing themselves portraying missions inspired by true events. This movie has recieved various criticisms from movie reviewers and most of it is legit. You can tell who are "real" actors are in this movie. The SEALS are good in the action scenes but otherwise are a bit stiff and wooden in thier "acting" scenes.

    Some critics have called this a really long and expensive recruiting video and one can see why they would. It does have that feel.

    Some have complained that it " does not show the complexity of war" and it is "one dimensional". What I suspect what they really mean is that it irks them that the SEALS are portrayed as noble warriors and the terrorists & narco thugs they go after are portrayed as scum of the earth. I guess they were expecting a scene where there would be deep soul searching conversation about why terrorists are terrorists and what did we do to make them terrorists. But in fairness to the movie it is not dealing with the overall situation of global terrorism or national foreign policies: it simply is a movie showing how SEALS operated on a few related combat missions. But yeah, ok, it does have the "USA, USA, USA!!" feel to it.

    What is cool is the action scenes. Showing how SEALS get in and do what they do was interesting. HALO jumps, silently moving though rugged terrain in the dark, operating state of the art surveillance drones, setting up a sniper team and then hitting an enemy so quick and so hard that the poor bastards don't know what hit them. You don't want to be on the receiving end of a SEAL operation that is for sure, those guys flat out **** people up.

    Would I recommend it? No, not really, for all the reasons mentioned above. But if you want to see a few good action scenes and see how the SEALS do what they do then rent it one day.
