Blood, gore and almost snuff
This will probably be one of the shortest reviews ever on IMDb.
Nothing much to say about this movie more than Hideshi Hino really succeeded with his goal to make a movie that would make people believe they just watched a real snuff movie and a gruesome murder. There is no story to it, it just says in the beginning of the movie that it's a re-make of a "snuff movie" that was sent to the cartoonist on a VHS. That's just rumours. But at the time of the creating of the movie this sort of thing was a hype, and the fact that this movie could be real, or at least based on a real event, just boosted the attention.
It's done very well for its time. Almost everything that happens in this movie could be real, if you don't know much about this genre, because it's so well done, like a real snuff movie. Charlie Sheen believed it was real, which gave the movie even more attention after he contacted the FBI and told them he just watched a recording of a real murder.
Nuff said. This movie is worth a rating over five just because the notrosity, that's for sure.
The Boondock Saints (1999)
Everything you want in a movie
Ok, here we go. Boondock Saints.
When I first saw this movie it immediately became one of my favourite action movies. I have seen it at least 50 times since it's premiere.
The story about the two brothers who will go to great (and I mean REALLY great) length to protect each other as well as do good, in their own point of view. And at the same time they will do whatever they feel is necessary to eliminate the bad in the world. But that isn't what makes this movie a masterpiece. The two brothers and their friend, Rocco (which also is his real name by the way), have something we all want, deep care for each other and loyalty, and nothing can come between that bond, and that's the part I think makes this movie a top 10 for all fans. The story isn't just about killing bad guys, like we seen a hundred times before, and ends with that, it has a lot of comedy, intensity and true action as well. This movie earned my high rating because of the characters and their stories most of all, but the story of the movie itself adds to it, that's for sure.
Yes, my bad English is obvious in my reviews, and the spoilers, but it is what it is. I hope a few of you appreciates my half-bad reviews and agree with few of my opinions.
Twin Peaks (1990)
My all-time favourite show
I love Twin Peaks, and I thought I should start this review (which is my first one by the way) by telling you little about what made this series one of my all-time favourite. The mystery through the whole series is just incredible. The mystic "jazz type music" that changes with characters and situations, the characters strange personalities, the unexpected happenings from time to time. Just a few examples. But I must admit that what made me fall in such deep love with this series, beside from the story itself, was the environment. Lynch and Frost couldn't have chosen better locations for the making of Twin Peaks.
Now to the story. When I first watched Twin Peaks I felt chills trough my body directly when Pete found the body on the beach "wrapped in plastic". That wasn't what I expected. After Pete's distraught call to the sheriff and Lucy's face expression after sheriff Truman told her they found a body I immediately understood that murder isn't something these people are used to. Early, almost immediately you start to feel the deep care everyone in Twin Peaks has for each other, which makes it so much more sad that this horrible crime happened at this peaceful place. The more you watch the more you start to feel for the people.
And what makes you horrified from time to time through the series isn't because of the usual stuff you see in almost every thriller/horror/mystery, no, this is on a much deeper level in a strange and psychological way, which makes it that much more terrifying. It's so different in a way that is hard to describe, something only Lynch (and in this case, Frost) can accomplish, but I know everyone who is a fan of Twin Peaks and David Lynch knows what I'm talking about.
However, I always going to miss Twin Peaks, but I get some comfort by watching a few episodes from time to time.
