Finally pulled myself together and moved on to the third instalment in the franchise. While some of you have been requesting that I continued this series asap, I find it really hard to gather the right kind of motivation.
Nonetheless, I did watch it, and I don't think I liked it all that much.
It's definitely the weakest so far, and got so unbelievably trivial after a very short amount of time.
I realise that this is a claimed "remake" of the first and original Prom Night, but it really isn't. The plot's not the same, characters isn't the same, the circumstances not the same, and the killer isn't the same either, so I'm not going to treat it as a remake. This is just another sequel to a franchise where nothing is ever connected.
So, how does it hold up to the older films? Well first of all, it's the only…
I don't really understand why the film needs to be so unnecessary long. I also don't understand why anyone would hire Tobey Maguire to star in their shit, did these people not watch Spider-Man?
Leonardo DiCaprio is amazing as always, but it seems to be a film with no likeable characters what so ever. I haven't read the book, so I can't actually confirm if this is fact, and how the story's supposed to go.
There's also a TON of unsatisfying results and anticlimaxes, but enough tension building to fill at least five Hollywood flicks.
The images, music, and costumes were unbelievably stunning though.
It starts out as a really bad slasher. You have your jock, your slut, imbecile, junkie, nervous wreck, your sheriff, ex criminal, and a little girl.
Enter the Predator/Alien mutant *withholds burst of laughter*
Apparently Facehuggers isn't a necessity anymore, and Aliens can now be bred through a quick make-out session with a pregnant woman *shrug*
Right, well, the Predator is by far the coolest and most ass kicking part of all the characters... which is why he spends 2/3…
Two television crews with different goals. One team is searching for scientific evidence of paranormal activity, and believes that a "haunting" is merely trapped energy taking some kind of form, and that it has nothing to do with spirits of deceased humans.
While the other, slightly more Jesus oriented team is looking to discredit that theory, by proving that they are souls trapped in our world.
Teaming up for the first time for a special episode of the tv show,…
If you can't stand the idea of me liking this more than the original Alien film, you might want to get the hell out of dodge right about... now...
If you're still here, don't tell me I didn't warn you.
I've never really been a big Predator fan. To me, they always seemed a little too big and clumsy with huge fucking heads.
But they were pretty boss in this flick! I don't know if it's because they came up…
[priest praying to God before the church altar] "Save them. Save them. Holy father, help me. Help me save the sluts and the whores from their unholy acts. Grant me strength, and I will deliver their souls onto you. Save them. Save them!"
It's the very first thing you see and hear, and immediately you know what kind of film you're in for.
The kind where everyone acts like porn stars and think it's amazing to have sex in the…
My justification for liking this a tiny little bit more than the others:
Ripley is absolutely amazingly badass in this sequel. She were pretty kick butt in the others as well, but never reached this level of badassness. Gary Dourdan is wonderfully droolworthy. The glorious gore is glorious.
The Alien/human hybrid is kind of laughable, but earns a few extra points for being slightly more creepy than the actual Aliens.
This film also proves my point of having "romantic" feelings…
The cool thing about The Barrens is that up until the very ending of the movie, you will find yourself guessing and guessing. What is really happening, and what is real?
This is a three part horror, one part psycho thriller, one part monster horror, and one part.... Blair Witch. I'll leave it up to you to decide if that's a good or a bad thing.
A big round of applause for Stephen Moyer for delivering the best performance I…
Love that they ditched the shaky camera, but the super religious crap forces the franchise to die a slow and very painful death, and opposite to the two other REC's, this third film deals with cringe worthy one-liners and REALLY bad acting.
This reminds me of Resident Evil in a lot of ways. The story is kind of just above mediocre, with lots of blood splatter and brains, but doesn't get anywhere near scary.
