Short n Sweet Movie Review- 9th November 2010

R3

 Marebito


/A great question-asking B-movie tour-de-force, shows that, once again, a good premise carries unflashy presentation
/The woman is both nightmarish and a dreamgirl and as always Shinya Tsukamoto is an endlessly likable and highly skillful actor
/The soundtrack, although minimal, is well fitting for the dark, slow visual style. Some scares to be found here that may well stick with you
/An interesting film about loneliness, voyeurism and sanity with a thought-provoking resolution

$-$-$-$- – 3.9/5

Devil
/Don’t look upside-down for the whole length of the 3-minute duration and you might be sick all over your forehead
/Extremely weak composition with ridiculous mumbo-jumbo
/Twist is painfully weak but luckily will meet one of many peoples sentiments
/Like the real Devil is bad for the soul, this one will have a similar effect on Shyamalan’s crude crusade of redemption after a tense string of terrible movies

$- – – – – 1.1/5

Goemon
/Not actually a better film than Casshern, just has more action scenes
/Leads are all strong, story isn’t great and attempted humour is weak
/Not quite inventive but always riveting and slickly produced action sequences
/Sumptuous visuals, some might say there’s occasional poor cgi but its always delivered with artistic flair, pleasant cinematography

$-$-$-$ – – £.8/5

Tesis
/One of the only “hot-guy” movies that I enjoyed viewing and wasnt made to feel sick (others easily recollectable to me are the old Marky-Mark starring Fear and the recent Just Wright with Common)
/Fantastic script, direction, casting and pacing.
/Makes you question whether you really want to see violence and why, does a good job of keeping you guessing
/A masterfully gripping thriller from Alejandro Amenabar, I would be surprised to find this caper hasn’t got alternate iterations, worth seeking this one out

$-$-$-$- – 4.0/5

Short n Sweet Movie Review- 22nd Sep 2010

In Movies, Reviews on September 22, 2010 at 3:35 pm

Here is another round of sraight to the point movie reviews….

Nausicaa: Valley of the wind (1984)

-Terrible voice acting, weak but occasionally impressive writing
-Technically feels older than it is, which fortunately compliments the interesting story
-Compositions are competent, creative use of colour
-Pleasant music, kinda sample worthy
-Don’t watch this, if ya like modern stuff, this film will be crappy
#-#-#—–…3/5



The Losers (2010)
-Its basically a lower budget A-team which focuses more on characters than action
-Some sweet shots, set-peices and scenarios (did I see the location from the last level of Goldeneye used, mainframe?)
-Feels videogame inspired, lost tone of comic book
-Absolutely no over-acting (including Saldana and Elba), the cast all provide accomplished performances
-Interesting, diverse characters, competently exhibiting humour, emotion and attitude
#-#-#-#—…4/5


Amon : Apocalypse of Devilman (2000)
-Easy to consume
-Overly brutal
-I expect most women to hate this flick
-Totally different to that- live-action movie
-Simple old-school style manga, which lets technicality take a backseat to violence
#-#-#-#—…4/5


Jeon Woochi: Taoist wizard (2009)
-Brilliant story, trancending time and place
-Lovely, endearing cast, family-friendly subjects
-A lot of action, good SFX and choreography
-Good pacing, tonal shifts and an adequate resolution
-Seriously worth seeking, buying and watching, a great film that should have had a worldwide release
#-#-#-#-#…5/5
