Absolutely love this movie. Such a unique hybrid of talent, weirdness and goofing around fun.
Favourite shot is when the wolf appears at the bottom of the underground escalator. So good.
Ignoring the dated elements of sexism and racism running throughout there is no denying this is a non stop thrill ride and a hell of a lot of fun.
Performances, set pieces, sound design, JLCs transformation from bored housewife to a kick ass sexy siren and the nuggets of comedy timing just add up to an absolute winner that really justifies being the first movie to cost $100 million.
Bill Paxton is the GOAT. RIP x
I wish Vincent Ward made more movies. He has such a unique vision that certainly isn't for everyone but at the very least offers fresh ideas and visual excitement. The Navigator is an absorbing blend of 14th Century plague centered time travel shot at times in stark black and white to contrast the garish colour and light when it moves to modern day New Zealand. A fantastic adventure film with likeable, developed characters and a number of surprisingly dark twists and turns. I loved it.
A beautifully filmed and atmospheric delve into folk horror that revels in what is obviously a very personal story crafted through dedication and determination in its seven years to completion. The foley and sound recording really add to the slow burn sense of dread throughout and whilst the overall story ends up feeling slightly generic there is enough disturbing nuance to compensate.
Quite a lot here that I liked and some genuinely creepy moments but why go to the effort of representing elements of the games so well and then drop the ball so damn badly with the representation of Leon S Kennedy. What did they do to him! WHAT DID THEY DO?!
Found this bizarrely watchable.
Alex de la Iglesia brings European sentiment to a drab looking Oxford that plays out like a neutered 'Good Will Da Vinci' murder mystery about truth.
Maybe it was this weird combination of talent and ideas that I enjoyed or maybe it was the spaghetti and boobs...
