Hustle & Flow (2005)
Hustle and Flow is a very compelling and very satisfying urban drama. This movie has it all. Good performances, a solid script, enjoyable music, and just the right amount of humor peppered throughout.
DJay is a pimp and a drug dealer who begins to have a mid-life crisis. He's got his three Ho's, one is a stripper, one is pregnant, and the other is a country runaway. After hearing about a local rapper whose gone on to bigger and better things, Djay begins to reconnect with an old friend and his love of music.
In the process he changes his attitudes, & his views on life...channeling his newfound creative energy into his music.
Terrence Howard as DJay gives an incredibly subtly yet powerful performance. This one drug dealing hustler that you will hate to love. But you will love him nonetheless. And that my friends...is what good acting is all about.
All the supporting roles are fleshed out nicely and very well acted by the rest of the ensemble cast.
This is a powerful and rewarding movie. Hustle on down and pick yourself up a copy. You wont regret it.
My Date with Drew (2004)
My Sad Pathetic Life.......
If I was broke and struggling to survive, as the "filmakers" in this little documentary claim to be doing.....I would be focusing my energies on my career & my life goals instead of asking my parents to send me checks so that I could eat, running around with a borrowed video camera that had to be returned in 30 days, and trying sooo desperately to get a date with my very famous childhood crush. And not even a real date really, more like a lunch a or dinner outing with somebody whose engaged and will always be completely out of any reach for most real men.
However , we aren't really talking about a real man in "My Date with Drew". We are talking about a hyperactive, struggling, quite possibly gay, Jewish 27 year old nobody who really needs to get a life. So maybe there's hope after all for all you losers out there. That is the real message of this film.
Whew ...I needed to get that off my chest. Having said that , there is no denying that "My Date with Drew" is a somewhat charming documentary about the underdog in all of us.
The movie itself isn't that great & isn't all that entertaining....but it does have a satisfying conclusion....even if it's not the one you'd originally expect.
Brian, the guy who desperately wants to meet Drew comes off as lovable......but also as a HUGE dork who ultimately should be focused on getting his S*** together instead of chasing around his childhood crush.
Hopefully Brian made some money off this project or otherwise this guy is headed for trouble! This movie isn't the worst. It's worth a one time viewing but thats about it.
A Lot Like Love (2005)
This reviewers take on "A Lot Like Love" is pretty mixed. First of all, this movie is not really a comedy. Besides the scene where Amanda Peet walks right into a glass sliding door (hilarious) the movie really isn't that funny at all. The movie is much more of a drama. I would say that about 80% of this movie is a drama and about 20% is comedy. The movie is marketed as a romantic comedy, so many viewers may feel a bit disenchanted when the film proves otherwise.
As a drama, the movie itself is not all that bad. It tends to lag and drag and is all too predictable, however there is no denying the charm of Kutcher and Peet. While their chemistry isn't the greatest, it is still very prevalent throughout the film. The film revolves around a series of encounters with Kutcher and Peet throughout the years. They always seem to be drawn to one another but previous commitments and/or plans always seem them to pull them apart until the next chance encounter. Basically, the film comes down to a question of "will they ever be together for good"? What do you think? No surprise there! However, the journey getting there plays out a little too long in this reviewers opinion.
The soundtrack is good, & the acting and performances of the two leads are credible. All in all...worth a one time viewing if you've got the time. One very annoying thing about this film are Amanda Peet's BAD BAD wigs through the first half. I'm sorry, but with the film's budget you'd think they could do better! Rent.... do not buy. You more than likely will not watch this movie more than once.
Not very "Bewitching"
After having read so many negative reviews and comments on the new "Bewitched" .....I went into this film expecting the worst.
The good news: It wasn't as bad as I thought. The bad news: Overall, it's still not that good of a film.
The biggest problem with "Bewitched" is Nora Ephrons ludicrous script. It goes in so many directions that it never really finds its footing. The script and the direction of the movie fail to capture the audiences belief and their imagination....which is what a film based on "magic" and such a beloved series should do first and foremost.
Kidman is the only saving grace of this film. But she can only do so much. Charming in the role....she just doesn't have anything solid to work with.
Will Ferrell is terribly unfunny. We all know how hilarious he can be given the proper material......so chalk that one up to the movies script as well.
By far the best performance of the film falls directly on the lap of Steve Carrell, who as Uncle Arthur is dead-on in his recreation and portrayal of the character originally played by the late Paul Lynde.
The movie has it's small moments, but mostly they are few and far between.
"Bewitched" is worth seeing once.......but ultimately will go down as another failed adaptation that probably shouldn't have been made in the first place.
The Dentist (1996)
As Dr. Alan Feinstone, Corbin Bernsen turns a marvelously deranged performance in "The Dentist".
With his already obsessive compulsive tendencies in high gear, the IRS hounding him, and a very suspicious acting wife; Dr. Alan Feinstone is losing his sanity more and more each day.
When the Doc indeed does realize that his wife is having an affair with the local pool boy, it sets off a string of events that lead to torture, murder, ant total mayhem! "The Dentist" is a solid film! Bernsen makes the character of Dr. Feinstone relatable and hateable at the same time. Even though he is completely out of his gourd, the audience will still feel sympathy towards him. That my friends.....is damn good acting.
A nice solid cast of supporting actors round out this gem of a film. Excellent direction, good killings and gore, and effective pacing will keep you entertained throughout the movies run.
Mediocre at best...
Tim Burton's remaking of "Charlie in the Chocolate Factory" is mediocre at best. The special effects are decent, but Depp is the real problem here. His Willy Wonka is NOT an improvement on Gene Wilder's, and he doesn't really bring anything that special to the character or the film.
If anything, he looks to young to play the part and comes off as rather creepy. And Burton's Oompa Loompas are a joke.
Kids may enjoy it, but as a "remake" that improves on the original, this film fails.
Overall, the movie looks beautiful but the original 1973 version is much better and more "magical". I did however thoroughly enjoy the "squirrel scene". That was the best part of the movie in this reviewers opinion.
Average movie that's worth a one time viewing (whereas the original can be watched repeatedly and still manages to entertain) Recommend for kids only. Adults should stick to the original.
The Devil's Rejects (2005)
The family that slays together.....stays together
"The Devils Rejects", Rob Zombies follow up to his directorial debut "House of 1000 Corpses" is a gritty, unflinching horror exploitation film. The movie is filmed perfectly, has some outstanding acting and memorable characters, and completely succeeds at entertaining and creeping out its audience during its run time.
A marvelous and original idea. The performances are all great, and contain many memorable cameos from many 80's TV and movie stars. Such cameos include PJ SOLES (Halloween, Carrie, Rock N Roll High School) Elizabeth Daly -credited as EG DALY (Valley Girl, Pee Wees Big Adventure) and Priscilla Barnes (Threes Company).
Thanks Rob, for giving us horror fans a film that we can embrace and that you can most definitely be proud of.
5 good reasons to see this film:
1.A menage a trois with a corpse!
2.Bathing in blood!
5.Prosthetic penises shooting semen and blood!
Aww yes....this a twisted little foreign film.
With barely any dialogue and a killer soundtrack- "Nekromantik" is a one of a kind life altering disgusto-thon.
There is no way this reviewer (in good faith) could NOT recommend this vile love story to the most serious of horror & gore fans!
"Nekromantik" must be seen to be believed.
My Little Eye (2002)
Watch in the dark!!
Why hadn't I ever heard of this film? "My Little Eye" begs to be seen. It's movies like this that make researching films on the internet all the worth while.
This is an atmospheric, creepy, and effective movie! The less said about this spookfest the better. It has a "Big Brother" (as in the TV show) element to it, except the contestants must stay in the house for 6 months without leaving (except to go out front), and some of the guests have secrets in their past that began to play out in front of them.
The filming, direction, and cinematography of "My Little Eye" are all superb. The angles, split screens, sound effects, and night vision cameras all serve to build up a tense but satisfying conclusion. Cant recommend this one enough if you like to be scared or freaked out.
A wonderful film to watch with the lights off and the volume cranked up.
A diamond in the rough.......
For horror/thriller fans that have never seen or heard of "Nursie", this review will start off by saying that this little film is an underseen gem! When Dr. Zack (C. Thomas Howell) crashes his car into a cow during a storm in the Louisianna bayou, he awakens shortly after wards to find out that he his at the "Twilight Gardens"; a retirement home run by Nurse Ada (Savannah Smith Boucher). Ada's big & fat dimwitted brother Raymond (David Parker) also assists with the daily duties and is at Ada's every beck and call.
Zack wants to leave, but the storm is still raging, the phone is out, and he is feeling a but groggy after the accident. He also meets Mary Claire (Frieda Jane), the beautiful young terrified niece of Nurse Ada, as well as Ada's patients...which she refers to as her "girls". The "girls" consist of seniors who all seem to be scared to death of their loving caretaker.
Zack soon comes to realize that he is being held captive by Ada, and that everyone else living there (except Raymond) is being held against their will as well. Zack tries to leave, but he is always unsuccessful and punished for each attempt after wards.
Ya see..Ada plans on keeping the doctor and starting up a romance with him as well. He also comes in quite useful for signing medical documents and forms that help to keep giving Ada the control over her patients that she has grown so accustomed to.
There is a lot more going on in "Nursie" than what I have just described above. This movie is a very effective thrill ride. The direction and writing are consistently sharp.
There are a few flaws in "Nursie", and the film stumbles at certain points, but overall it is well done.
What makes "Nursie" a little better than most of what is being made these days for us horror enthusiasts are the fantastic performances by C. Thomas Howell, Savannah Smith Boucher, and David Parker. All three are exceptionally good, but Boucher is a standout as the crazy and deranged Nurse Ada. She is just fantastic in the role and runs with it all the way, creating a truly believable and creepy character in Nurse Ada.
"Nursie" is somewhat similar in theme to "Misery", but it develops it's own footing early on.
Overall, this is a good movie! Recommended!
Emanuelle in America (1977)
Vote for Pedro!
You have to be in the right frame of mind to sit and watch "Emmanualle in America".
If you are...it can be a blast.
In this film, Emmanuelle's sexual misadventures continue-and she winds up going undercover and getting herself in the middle of a underground conspiracy smuggling snuff films into the United States.
There not much of plot or acting here--just mostly soft core sexual scenarios with a few hardcore scenes as well.
Beastiality..... check! 3 somes........ check! Lesbianism...... check! Orgies.......... check!
There's a little bit of everything here. Most of it is soft-core but there are a few sequences that are definitely X-rated.
The snuff film footage is quite realistic and disturbing--but intriguing nonetheless.
All in all, this movie is all about sexual "visuals". Forget about storyline or any kind of acting ability.Times sure have changed--but "Emmanuelle in America" remains a titillating piece of erotica. Worth watching for the endless nudity or if your looking to try and "shock" yourself. This reviewer spent most of the film laughing his a** off!
The title of this review refers to the horse "Pedro", which was my vote for the funniest part of this trashy little movie. ;-)
"Toys are loyal and that's a fact"
I've always been a fan of "Dolls". It's a horror story and somewhat of a kids story all rolled up into one.
When little Judy (Carrie Lorraine) and her nasty father and stepmother (Ian Patrick Williams & Carolyn Purdy-Gordon) get stuck in the mud on a little road in England during a horrific storm, they decide to hightail it out of the car and stumble across a mansion owned by Gabriel & Hilary (Guy Rolfe & Hilary Mason).
Gabriel is a doll maker whose house is filled room by room with his creations. Soon they are joined by some other weather stranded folk: punk rockers Isabel and Enid (Bunty Bailey & Cassie Stuart) and nice childish Ralph (Stephen Lee) whose happened to pick up the stranded girls as well.
So Gabriel puts them all up for the night. Isabel decides she is going to loot the place, and immediately takes off looking for valuables. Of course, Gabriels dolls don't exactly find this to be acceptable- and soon take matters into their own hands.
One by one the Dolls take their revenge on the house intruders, and only little Judy knows whats going on. Of course, being that she is a child- know one believes her.
Except of course for Ralph, who after some disbelief realizes that something "not quite right" is going on around them.
The killer dolls in "Dolls" are surprisingly creepy and effective, which facial expressions and movements that are either bound to scare you, make you laugh hysterically, or both.
The movie is quite well done overall- and remains a classic in this reviewers book. Dolls is an underrated and under seen little gem, and it's nice to see that it has finally made its way onto DVD for us horror fans.
If you haven't seen it recently or have never even heard of it at all, "Dolls" is worth a viewing or even a second viewing for sure.
Haute tension (2003)
Tense until the end........
What everyone is saying about "High Tension" is true.
This is a rock'n good time of a horror movie until the last 20 minutes. Then the movie stumbles and falls flat on its face.
However, up until that point, the acting, cinematography, and direction are all superb. "High Tension" is creepy and effective, and regardless of its ending is still a fine horror movie. Definitely worth watching for any horror fan out there. Although the ending is quite bad, it doesn't ruin the first 3/4 of the film.
Give it a viewing but be warned.....your gonna love it till the end.
After that, nothing quite makes much sense!
The Beach Girls (1982)
Takes you back to a simpler time .
I love the "Beach Girls"! This movie kicks some serious butt!! This movie is a great example of 80's fun; back when people, life, and movies were much more carefree. There was no "Just Say NO" campaigns and no AIDS - just a lot of people who wanted to have the most fun they could possibly have!! Uptight Sarah (a beautiful Debra Blee) is staying at her rich Uncle Carl's luxurious beach pad on Paradise Beach for the summer. Lucky for her, she's invited her two wild, hot, out of control partying girlfriends Ginger (Val Kline) and Ducky (Jeana Tomasina) to join her. While Ginger and Ducky are making the drive out to Uncle Carls place, they pick up hitchhiker Scott (James Daughton) and bring him along for the ride.
As soon as the girls arrive they waste no time in getting the party started. First item of business: BOYS! So they pick up the phone book, order them selves a pizza boy, a repairman, and anyone else they can get to show up.
Its not long before the party is raging- the clothes start coming off right away and everyone is drinkin, dancing, and getting high. This is all very exciting for the local gardner (a fantastically funny Bert Rosario), who watches in awe and excitement at the going on's around him.
Its not long before Uncle Carl gets word of the party, so he hightails it down to put a stop to it. Not wanting to be a jerk, he tells Sarah that her friends can continue with their party through the evening, but they all have to leave in the morning...including Ginger and Ducky. Of course, the two bombshells overhear this, and set out to seduce Uncle Carl with sex, drugs, and booze in an effort to win him over.
There's also a small subplot with the Coast Guard trying to infiltrate to some weed smugglers by boat- who end up dumping several trashbags full of pot overboard- where they eventually are discovered by none other than Ginger and Ducky the next day.
So whats to do?? Throw the wildest party ever! And they sure do!
During party night #2, Sarah (whos been falling for Scott) decides she is tired of everyone telling her to "lighten up" and decides she is gonna follow in the footsteps of her two girlfriends.
This movie is filled with plenty of T&A, clichés, and drug references. Its pure mindless fun, but fun nonetheless!! A very enjoyable, simple and silly movie!!
As for the "Pom Pom Girls"....never seen it but the DVD is worth it for the "Beach Girls" alone!!
A Dirty Shame (2004)
More shame than dirt.....
"A Dirty Shame" is a mediocre film at best. I'm a big fan of John Waters. I respect what he has done over the years and have found many of his films absolutely hilarious. Unfortunately, that was not the case with "A Dirty Shame".
While the performances are quite good, the script itself is not. The idea of the movie is pretty fun, but the actual dialogue and scenes aren't that great.
Tracy Ullman plays Sylvia Stickles, an uptight housewife with a oversexed stripper daughter (Selma Blair), and a horny husband (Chris Isaac). When Sylvia injures her head in a car accident and receives some immediate oral gratification afterwards- she becomes an over the top sex addict looking for anyone .just anyone to go down South on her.
She subsequently realizes that there is a whole underground group of sex addicts out there, all with previous head injuries (her own daughter included) who are running amok- and eventually looking to find some sort of new sexual position that will apparently start up a sexual revolution of some sort.
At the same time, there small little town is suddenly becoming over run with sexual perversion, and its up to Sylvia's mother Big Ethel (a very funny Suzanne Shepherd) and neighbors (most notably Marge the Neuter played by none other than Mink Stole) to restore their peaceful little community to the way it once was.
Johnny Knoxville plays Ray Ray, a tow truck driver and leader of this sexual underground revolution- and his performance is by far the best and most entertaining that the film has to offer.
This reviewer doesn't want to say too much about the film, only that if you're a John Waters fan, its certainly worth a viewing. However, in the end- this film is just not one of Waters best- and after years of shocking his audiences- it's possible just possible that John Waters has run out of ideas to shock us with and has lost the majority of the "edge" that has made him such a classic cult filmmaker.
For fans only.......
Crashes then burns....
"Crash" is not that great of a movie. In fact, by the time it is said and done, it is hardly a complete movie at all. I'm still not sure what the theme of this movie is?? Racism? What you have with "Crash" is a few interlocking stories with various people that happen to cross each others paths. "Crash" has a fantastic ensemble of actors and actresses, but each persons character and storyline isn't completely developed. I guess that's the problem when your trying to tell 5 or more stories at once.
All in all this is just an O.K. picture. You won't feel any better or worse having watched it by the time the credits roll. If anything you may wish you'd passed on this one. That is how this reviewer felt. Kind of a droll movie that attempts to make an impact- but doesn't really.
It delivers a promising premise... but it could have been much more with a better script and some more character development fleshed out. The acting is definitely solid- but the rest of the film is severely flawed.
"Crash" is just one hell of an average movie.
Decadence at it's finest!
This movie is rad.
Caligula is filled with so much nudity, imagery, and decadence that it's hard not to love. Some scenes are are straight up mainstream pornography. A perfect example of a wonderful time in the film industry when movies were really pushing the envelope. I thought this movie ruled. If you haven't seen this film and you are reading this you must get your hands on an unrated copy and give it a go.
A film as hardcore as "Caligula" would never be made today. Caligula is one big budget (for its time,) daring, and provocative piece of work!
Rated X (2000)
Band of Brothers........
Real life mainstream actors/brothers Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen take on the amusing and twisted underground characters/brothers of Artie and Jim Mitchell in "RATED X".
Artie and Jim Mitchell were at the forefront of the San Francisco porn revolution in the early 70's. The owned their owned theater, made their own X rated films- and lived a life of abundant excess.
When they created/produced/wrote and directed "Behind the Green Door", they found themselves thrust in the spotlight - and made millions. Unfortunately, their success suffered a serious backlash- and while somewere able to pick up and recover - others only found themselves thrust deeper into a life a drugs, despair, and eventually murder.
The movie takes an unflinching look at a classic time in American Hostory, and the story of the Mitchell Brothers is quite amusing and saddening at the same time.
A great directorial debut for Emilio Estevez and some fine acting by both actors (especially Sheen in the final half of the film) make this an entertaining "diamond in the rough".
The Fluffer (2001)
Stuck in the middle with you.....
"The Fluffer" boasts some moments of really good acting and some quality comedic & dramatic scenes throughout it's run. However, as a heterosexual male, this movie also had plenty of moments that left me feeling uncomfortable, and some others that were pretty outlandish.
Not to familiar with movies in this genre, I thought I would give this one a go. It was worth watching, but I really wouldn't want to see it more than once.
Sean is a young inexperienced gay man whose just moved to LA and is struggling to find his place in both his professional and personal life. While renting a gay X-rated film one night, he becomes intoxicated with its leading man Johnny Rebel (Scott Gurney). So he hightails it over to the company that made the film and gets himself a job as a P.A. (production assistant).
This leads him to an encounter with none other than Johnny Rebel- who after some "difficulty" shooting a particular scene, carouses young Sean over to him and asks him for a little "help". Hence, Sean becomes a sort of personal "fluffer" for Johnny when he has this difficult moments from there on....
"Fluffing" is a term that refers to someone who coaxes and erection out of a male porn actor when they are having trouble.
So Sean becomes obsessed with Johnny- a guy who has plenty of demons of his own. Johnny is a straight, egotistical, arrogant crystal meth user who lives with his stripper girlfriend Julie (Roxanne Day).
Things began to really spiral out of control when Julie gets pregnant, wants to have the baby, and Johnny starts to decline in his status as a top porn star.
Some scenes in "The Fluffer" work very nicely. The scenes with Johnny and Julia, as well as most with Johnny and Sean are very well acted and play out nicely. Johnny is a tortured soul- and you can easily feel his despair. All three of the actors did a great job with their characters.
The movie takes a real downturn towards the end- with Johnny and Sean hightailing it down to Mexico for reasons you'll have to watch to find out. Johnny's decent downhill plays out too quick, and overall is pretty far fetched. There's also a small subplot with Sean trying to date some other guy that really wasn't needed in the movie.
Overall, this reviewer felt the stronger half of the film was it's first half. And although the subject matter and some scenes were a little too much for me personally, the performances in "The Fluffer" helped to make the movie watchable and believable for the most part.
I wouldn't want to see it again- but would say the "The Fluffer" is an average film with some above average acting.
Sex: The Annabel Chong Story (1999)
Interesting look at an interesting character!
Annabel Chong gang-banged her way to the top of the porn industry by having sex with 251 guys in 10 hours. Did she do it to make a feminist statement, for the money, or because she simply enjoyed the act itself? The film explores all the possibilities and more.
This documentary is more about the person behind the act other than the actual act itself. Annabel is quite an interesting character. At times she comes across as highly intelligent, and other times she appears to be highly sensitive, fragile, and self-destructive.
The documentary is presented through a serious of interviews and outtakes, some of which can be pretty disturbing.
The parts in which Annabel demonstrates her techniques for self mutilation, as well as her mother in Singapore discovering what her her daughter has been doing in America for a living are particularly gut-wrenching.
A very intriguing look at a this multi-faceted / multi-dimensional character and woman.
Inside Deep Throat (2005)
Inside Deep Throat" is the documentary tale of the first porno film to ever go mainstream, and the aftermath that followed.
"Deep Throat" was a cultural phenomenon in the early 70's, a humorous little tale of a woman who is diagnosed as having her clitoris in the back of her throat...causing her to obtain and achieve an orgasm by fellatio alone. No problem for Linda Lovelace, the films star; a woman who seems to have been born without any type of gag reflex! ;-)
"Inside Deep Throat" covers the making of the film, the personal background of Lovelace and Harry Reams (her co star), the smashing success of the movie and how it effected the people surrounding the project.
Here are a few tidbits:
New York tried to ban the film when it was first released in movie theaters, causing it to be a huge underground success. The more they tried to sweep the film under the rug, the more popular it became.
The film turned Lovelace into a household name. Eventually there was a serious backlash, and Lovelace became somewhat of an advocate against porn and for women rights. She tried to fade into obscurity without too much success and eventually died penniless.
Harry Reams was prosecuted for his role in the film. The first time ever an actor had been indicted for a role that they portrayed. Mainstream celebrates rallied in his favor for the right to artistic expression. Eventaully, Harry was abandoned by mainstream Hollywood and turned his back on the porn industry.
The Italian mob financed the film.
Shot for 25,000, it went on to gross over 600 million.
"Inside Deep Throat" is presented objectively and thoroughly, with plenty of current and past interviews with the people involved in the film- including the films director Gerard Damiano, Harry Reams(both of whom are still alive today) Lovelace, and many other celebrities and industry insiders.
Its a fascinating glimpse into a time of sexual revolution and liberation, when X rated films where shot on film, presented on movie screens, and stood a chance of blending into mainstream Hollywood.
As a huge fan of the subculture of the X rated film industry, present and past; this film is a must see.
Ginger Snaps (2000)
They don't call it "the curse" for nothing!!
"Ginger Snaps" deserves praise for it's originality & acting alone. This is a solid teenage horror/werewolf movie. It's everything "Cursed" tried for and should have been.
Loner/Goth sisters Brigitte (Emily Perkins) & Ginger Fitzgerald (Katharine Isabelle) don't have all that much going for them- accept each other. At school, they are mostly revered by the other girls and the more popular crowd. They have a particularly strong bond with each other however- which seems to be more than enough.
Although born a year apart from one another, they are in the same grade due to Brigitte skipping one grade ahead. One odd fact of life about the duo is that they have never had a "period", something which Ginger is more than happy to keep waiting for.
However, when mother nature finally comes a callin'- she does so with a vengeance! On the night of her first period while out walking with Brigitte, Ginger is attacked by a ferocious animal and almost mauled to death. Shortly after, she starts to exhibits all the classic werewolf signs such as a thirst for blood, pointy little teeth, and a nasty scar that seems to be sprouting some seriously ugly hair.
As she begins to change, the bond that Ginger feels with Brigitte begins to deteriorate rapidly. Ginger begins to get herself all sexed up and starts being a lot more flirtatious and outgoing, separating herself from Brigitte the whole time.
However, Gingers hunger and urge to kill can not be contained, and as the bodies began piling up and Ginger turns to Brigitte for help- Brigitte finds herself in a race with time to save her sister from this curse before anybody else pays the price! "Ginger Snaps" has its cheesy and formulaic moments- but overall the film is completely enjoyable. That's largely due to the exceptional acting of it's young stars. Both girls do a fine job in their roles and are completely believable.
This reviewer really enjoyed "Ginger Snaps", and having read many reviews on the movie prior to watching it; feel that it lived up to its promise and reputation.
Without a doubt . a pleasing and solid entry into the werewolf genre of films.
Inside the Bunny Ranch!
If hookers, sex, nudity, and documentaries interest you..then this no doubt is an entertaining look at some of the goings on at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch in Carson City NV.
HBO filmmakers take you inside to meet all the different types of girls working at the ranch while showing you how the operation runs effectively on a day to day basis.
Even more interesting than the wide variety of girls that the ranch boasts, (complete with their own eccentric and individual personalities and personas) are the actual customers who frequent (or stop by for their first experience) the joint! Mothers bringing in their virgin sons, high rollers, brothers, marital exchanges....you get to catch a glimpse of some pretty interesting scenarios, people, and situations.
A truly unique and undoubtedly entertaining piece of programming by HBO. I love this stuff!! Special mention to the "Boone Brothers" of "BRAWLIN BROADS" fame! If you have happened to see any of the "BRAWLIN BROADS" videos and this hilarious duo in action, you will be pleasantly shocked and surprised when they show up at the Bunny Ranch together looking for a little action. AWESOME!!!
Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003)
"Jeepers Creepers 2" is an unnecessary sequel that just rehashes the plot of Part 1 - this time focusing on a group of teenagers who get stranded on a bus.
Not much else going on here folks...
This reviewer liked the first "Jeepers Creepers" much better. It had better acting, plot, and character development going for it.
The sequel is somewhat fun if your a big fan of the original movie- but ultimately lacks everything that made the first film a winner.
With nothing new or exciting about "Jeepers Creepers 2", this can be viewed as an O.K. movie at best.
My Bloody Valentine (1981)
"Coal Miners Daughter" meets "The Prowler"
Overall, "My Bloody Valentine" is one of the early 80's horror movies that just doesn't deliver the goods. You've got a killer running around who the audience doesn't really care about because your not supposed to know who it is, a bunch of ugly, fat, older 20's somethings with bad accents that as characters are neither appealing or worth caring about, and some cheap special effects that just don't do the trick.
The movie plays as a "whodunit" which is probably it's biggest setback. It's not worth trying to figure out who the killer is when all of the possibilities are badly acted and characters without much development. This would have played much better as a straight "physcho kills teenagers" film.
The special effects aren't all that great either. Gimme some hot teenagers running around the forest any day over these hillbillies hanging out in the coal mines.
