A list of movies released around 92-02 which I consider GEN X horror. Of course, it kicked into gear in…
Real love is forever.
Exactly one year after young rock guitarist Eric Draven and his fiancée are brutally killed by a ruthless gang of criminals, Draven -- watched over by a hypnotic crow -- returns from the grave to exact revenge.
They're all dead. They just don't know it yet.
The Crow is not an easy film to love and defend as great. Not because there's anything wrong with it, but because of the douchebags that praise the film for all the wrong reasons. They are the type of people that cause others to hate this film. They're also the type of people that make others think twice about praising the film in public for fear of being grouped in with them.
I'm talking about those Emo bastards that "love" the film because the character of Eric Draven is SO relatable to them. He witnesses his fiancée being gang raped, beaten to death and then he himself gets shot…
A very good atmospheric dark comic book film. It's got a horror aspect blended with thrills and action to make a solid revenge film that's different from the rest.
A powerful dark stylish visual feast, stunning, yet haunting gothic comic book adaptation, and one of the best ever made(comic book adaptations). A story about love and revenge. Brandon Lee son of Bruce Lee, got accidentally shot dead in filming this. the soundtrack, the visuals are awesome, atmosphere of the city is fantastic, great directing. Love the cheesy lines and the entertaining bad guys. one of my favorite Action films of all time. Join the Cult.
The Crow is a dark/gothic take on the hero who is of supernatural origin. While some of the production values were cheap it’s still a memorable film. A film has to be more than special effects. This film has a brutal beginning with an overall theme of revenge. Brandon Lee’s final role was bittersweet since audiences were exposed to his phenomenal acting abilities. I still remember some of the lines from the movie even though it’s so old. “Mother is the name for God on the lips of all children.”
I’m not one of those people who wears black and dreams of razorblades. I enjoy a film for its emotional impact and that’s the center of the story. Our protagonist…
THIS FILM SAYS "IT CANT RAIN ALL THE TIME" EVEN THOUGH IT ACTUALLY RAINS ALL THE TIME IN IT.
WHAT THE FUCK
A recent LB review gave The Crow half a star and equated it to raver pants, oh the indignity! I was rightly outranged by the suggestion that this movie wasn't the timeless classic I remembered from my teens.
I will now locate this review and eat my metaphorical hat by reluctantly awarding a retrospective 'like'.
While not nearly as bad as that chap made out, the nineties nostalgia hit isn't enough to hide the fact that, in 2015, The Crow is simply not particularly entertaining. Its many problems; pompous dialogue, grimy colour scheme, endless strobe lighting and lack of decent action is offset by the excellent band of supporting character actors and cool grungy tunes. Brandon is a good choice…
Brandon Lee in this movie is a walking PSA. You'll get what I mean if u see it
Starring the Late Brandon Lee (Son of Bruce Lee) this film adapts the Graphic novel by the same name. It has a massive cult following and on set it was struck with bad luck when Brandon Lee was struck with a Bullet from a prop gun that was loaded and died at the scene. The gothic style of the film is great and the character of the crow is deffo mystifying.
"Ca Caaar Bang F*** hes dead"
"I like the pretty lights"
I watched this and honestly don't remember what the hell was going on. This movie is basically "Trent Reznor: The Movie", which is okay I guess.
RIP Brandon Lee. Sadly, that's kind of the only reason why people watch this movie.
nothing personnel, kid
The darkest, edgiest film in the world when I was 13. Now the over-serious tone, relentless gothicism and poor acting are more cringe-inducing than anything, and you know a film's in trouble when the anchoring good cop is played by Winston off Ghostbusters. Still, some of the soundtrack's good and Brandon Lee does the whole "dress up as a scary clown, die, get canonised" when Heath Ledger was still an extra in TV series.
Film #19 of Scavenger Hunt 15.
Task # 10: A film featuring a hotel/ motel
As far as classics from the 90s go, this one is severely underrated these days. People say things such as "it doesn't hold up", "there werent many good comic book movies those days", "it's remembered more for it's legacy". All that stuff is complete rubbish. It holds up very well, but not in that it looks like it was made a couple years ago way, but in that it's very 90s and almost everything works as it should. And why should it matter that there weren't many other comic book movies in those days that were good? This film was never judged in…
Eigentlich ein simpler Revenge-B-Movie. Trotzdem bekommt er mich jedesmal und wird nicht schlechter.
I'm glad this is a film that can hold up and be talked about on its own and not just the tragic history.
It really is a great 90's revenge story with a horror twist. Sure it brought on Hot Topic kids for years to come, but I'm past my cynical movie days so all the sad Myspace gothkid moments didn't make me roll my eyes like it once would have.
Watching Brandon Lee do those little things that would have had easily getting cast in bigger things, and knowing that this had a very reduced budget during filming. It really was a perfect storm of everything unfortunate making something pretty awesome.
A tragic film with equally tragic reality. A man and his girlfriend are killed by gangs. He comes back and kills them. Sounds simple and it is. But the style and Brandon Lee's performance make it magical.
Brandon Lee is oddly poetic and creepy as Crow. He's on a quest for vengeance and nothing will stop him. Brandon Lee's performance cant be overstated. He is The Crow and no one will replace him.
Now this isnt a perfect film. There are moments that dont make any sense and plot developments that seem forced.
Like when he goes to the cop to try and remember his past. After he's already has killed at least two gang members. Berated them for what…
