Priests say their prayers
Doctors do their jobs
people live their lives
And one poor Ellen Burstyn is hanging around the city
from hospitals to churches
with her sunglasses on
searching for a solution
for her poor girl's problem
daughter's body is Satan's home now
nothing is safe to this woman and people around her
Not much time left for them
Still , this creepy thing is happening on a day like all the other days .
Not that I…
This is pretty much exactly what I needed to see after the continuously more and more generic zombie flicks coming out nowadays. Despite it's extraordinarily low-budget, lack of Walking Dead-quality make-up effects and the usual zombie-related deaths, I thought that The Battery still managed to be awesome. I love that it was about the two lead characters dealing with the apocalypse (and each other) rather than the focus being on crazy amounts of zombie carnage (which, don't get me wrong,…
Wow! Forget everything else for now, this was a non-stop thrill-ride packed with fast-paced martial arts, gunfights and pure adrenaline. I'll admit, there's not a whole lot of plot or character development here, but you could care less in a film such as this. Gareth Evans has crafted what may be one of the best (and most violent) action flicks in years.
Set in a crime-ridden housing project in Jakarta, Indonesia, a police squad arrives in a van to take…
I don't know what to say about Riki-Oh. Words can't do it justice. Look, there's a scene where Ricky cuts a dude's stomach open, and the dude pulls out his own intestines and strangles Ricky with them. This is some next level shit.
The whole thing is like a cartoon. But a cartoon set in a prison with the most insanely graphic violence you'll ever see. But the violence is all meted out via rubber appendages and dodgy mannequins and…
Blood Simple may very well be the most powerful and confidant debut film of the last 50 years. It's a paranoid stunner: a film full of paranoia as a terrific means of suspense building. But also it's a film that is so good that it seems to have been made by a paranoid director and writer who feared that they would only be able to make only one film, so they made that one film the best representation of their…
Oh, right, THAT'S why I never watched this a second time.
The blame lies almost entirely on the writing and Willis' unwillingness to bring life to his character. Everyone else (especially Scott, Brody, and Pollak) seems to be trying and enjoying themselves.
The fact that Kevin Smith gets blamed for this film's failures is ridiculous. It has some style to it and his editing is great.
Unfortunately, you can't make a good film with a terrible script and (if any blame can be out on Smith) he probably should have passed on this one or re-written it himself.
When this movie came out, I was pretty obsessed with it for a few years. I had even back-timed it so that I could watch it on New Year's Eve and the countdown would come at the correct time. Set in the "far off future" of 2000, aside from the SQUID technology, it was a not-too-far-fetched picture of race relations in the mid-90s. And well, corruption in the L.A. police force is always good for a jab.
Not as well-written…
Gal, a retired British criminal living under the hot sun of southern Spain, is pressured to do another job by Don, his sociopathic ex-partner, in this very original film directed by Jonathan Glazer. Content to spend the rest of his days with his wife and friends in Spain, Gal tries to decline, but Don won't take no for an answer. His formidable presence stirs up trouble and raises tensions to uncomfortable heights.
Ray Winstone, Ben Kingsley, and the entire cast…
