Track the Films You Watch (2011)



Ok, another year is among us but I guess it's best to start off (for the first time) with a warning of issues on the front page.  I got several PMs last year from people having various issues with the front page so hopefully this won't happen this year.  Some people had issues with the images.  Some had issues with speed.  Others had issues with being able to edit.  A few larger threads had these issues fixed so hopefully there won't be as many problems going forward.



--This list is for keeping track of each film you watch throughout the year. Feature films and short films released from any year.


--Lists can have any format the poster wants but normally we keep the dates viewed, star rating as well as the year the film was released. Some might also select to keep track of which titles are new views. All of that is up to the poster.


--Feel free to discuss the films you're watching (even at over 1000 replies last year, it would be nice to have more reviews/discussions)..

Januray 3: King Arthur (2004) Dir. Antoine Fuqua -


3 out of 5: Alot to like about this film, particulalry Clive Owen as an unlikley King Arthur, but the scale of the film seems to outweigh the director's ability to keep it all in line. Overall, not a bad effort, but with much room for improvement.


January 8: An Education (2009) Dir. Lone Scherfig


4 out of 5: Superb performances, especially from Carey Mulligan. Though the subject matter brushes against creepy from time to time, the excellent production and solid direction produce a fine film.


January 8: Gone Baby, Gone (2007) Dir. Ben Affleck


4.5 out of 5: A brilliantly acted and directed effort by first-time director Ben Affleck. Casey Affleck is very, very good, as are the entire cast. Having seen several film adaptations of Dennis Lehane's novels, I felt this was the most raw and real of them all. Highly recommended.

January 10: Deja Vu (2006) Dir. Tony Scott


3.5 out of 5: Preposterous science but very entertaning thriller from Tony Scott. Terrorism, time-travel, and taut thrills conspire to produce a likeable movie. Denzel Washington is as good as always.

January 11: Case 39 (2006) Dir. Christian Alvert


2.5 out of 5: Lackluster effort in the supernatural thriller/horror genre. The utter lack of originality in premise or execution genuinely disappoints as the marketing for this film had piqued my interest. Full review here.


January 14: The Town (2010) Dir. Ben Affleck


4 out of 5:

January 14: Takers (2010) Dir.

3.5 out of 5:

January 14: Armored (2009) Dir. Nimrod Antal


3.5 out of 5: Review TBD


January 14: The Universe: Complete Season 4 (2010) Dir (multiple).

3.5 out of 5: Review TBD

While the City Sleeps - Kicking off the new year with a selection from both the TSPDT Top 1000 list and the 250 Quintessential Noirs list. It's not especially worthy of either. The two-pronged plot covers the hunt for a serial killer and a power struggle at a news syndicate. The film packs a dynamite cast (including Dana Andrews, Thomas Mitchell, George Sanders, Ida Lupino, Rhonda Fleming and Vincent Price), most of whom are excellent. The story involving the journalists takes most of the spotlight, and it's got some compelling aspects with a lot of drama and betrayal and secret alliances. The killer thread, however, gets the short shrift. We get only the briefest of insights into the villain's psyche, and the forensic work is very ho-hum compared to your average procedural. It does allow for a pretty good chase scene, though. Unfortunately, that particular scene is one of only a small handful that display any sense of style. As with most of Lang's American films, it mostly feels entirely flat, with no passion or inspiration at all. It's competent, of course, but not much more than that. Watchable, passable... and ultimately forgettable. Rating: 7


Les maîtres fous - Apparently one of Herzog's favorite movies, and that's not hard to believe. It's a documentary short about the Hauka tribe (club? sect?) of West Africa, whose initiation ceremony is a bizarre bastardization of the social structure and mannerisms of their European colonial oppressors. The ritual involves foaming at the mouth, a stiltled herky-jerky walk, confessions and punishments, beatings, people being possessed by characters like "the mayor", "the general" and "the locomotive", and the sacrifice and subsequent consumption of a dog. It resembles some sort of primal explosion of frustrated satire. The ending of the film shows the participants happily back at their jobs, and suggests that the ritual helps them mentally cope with their daily lives. Although I was quite confused throughout most of it (due mostly to the very poor subtitles) I was also quite transfixed. An unusual and provocative work. Rating: 8


Chronique d'un eté - Another Jean Rouch documentary. In this one, he and co-director Edgar Morin start out by discussing the likelihood of getting truth out of subjects who know they are on camera. They then proceed to ask a variety of Parisians "Are you happy?"... at first during brief on-the-street interviews, and then going more in-depth with selected people. Throughout, you are constantly engaged with their openness and simultaneously questioning their honesty. Are they hamming it up for the camera when they talk in grandiose philosophical terms? How much of Marceline's concentration camp monologue is truth and how much is melodramatic flourish, and how does the camerawork affect our perception of that? In the end, Morin and Rouch screen the film for their subjects, get their reactions, and discuss the success or failure of their project. Wonderfully meta and, for the most part, fascinating. Rating: 8


Judex - A Robin Hood type character punishes a sinister banker for his misdeeds, and the plot thickens and thickens and thickens some more. Franju's homage to Feuillade is a real treat, and a reminder that I need to see more by both filmmakers. Certainly I'd like to see the original, since it seems right up Feuillade's alley, along the same lines as Les Vampires. Secret identities, twists galore, disguises, wacky gadgets, double crosses, daring escapes, homing pigeons, faked deaths, long-lost relatives, and a rooftop catfight. It's a ridiculously wild ride that probably works even better in serial format. Other nods to Feuillade include a character reading "Fantomas", and a girl (the smoking hot Francine Bergé, in a delightful performance) who gets to slink around in a catsuit, a la Musidora... in a double role, no less! Franju has a marvelous eye, lots of terrific shots. The Maurice Jarre score is lovely as well (though occasionally a little too subdued for the action). This is just a really, really fun movie that made me want more of the same. Rating: 9


Kameradschaft - Pabst's tale (inspired by a true event) of a group of German miners who come to the rescue of French miners. The film's heart is definitely in the right place (no matter what you may think of its slight Socalist leaning) but it's not done with very much nuance. Pretty much everyone is a great guy and pretty much everything turns out okay, and it just doesn't have the dramatic tension that it should. Part of this may be due to some odd pacing, a common problem with early talkies. However, it's a real knockout in the visuals department, featuring some absolutely stunning camerawork, especially down in those claustrophobic mines. Technically impressive, but a little on the dull side. Rating: 7

The Expendables (2010) Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image


I find the  older I get the less tolerance I have for these testosterone fueled movies. It also doesn't help that I dislike most everything that Stallone has done that I've seen except for Copland. I must admit though that I knew exactly what I was watching when I sat down to view this with my family. Lots of gun play and explosions to keep most happy. It would have helped if I could have seen some of the action going on. It was a blur to me at times. Not much of a plot here to keep my interest and some of the cast were greatly underused. This isn't a movie I'll be watching again anytime soon.


Resident Evil Afterlife (2010) Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image


Not really a good movie but I consider it more of a guilty pleasure. The plot is the same as all the others where a lone girl is fighting against the evil organization responsible for the virus that was unleased on the world. Similar cast of character as all the others. Most die, some live with the inevitable sequel just around the corner.

Drive-in flick has an interesting title, a good setting but the end results aren't nearly as good as you'd hope for.  Landau and Maltby own a cat food company but the high costs are causing them to lose money so they decide to buy human meat from a nutty cemetery owner.  Soon the cat food is flying off the shelf but when cats eat it they then start attacking their owners for more human flesh.  THE CORPSE GRINDERS is the exact type of film you'd expect to be playing second or third during a summer night at the drive-in back in the heyday of trash cinema.  The film thankfully runs just 73-minutes and it probably the best thing I've seen from Mikels but that's still not saying too much.  As you'd expect the budget is incredibly low but this actually helps build up some atmosphere.  The film takes place in very few locations and it really wouldn't shock me if three or four were simply shot on the same set with different things hung up to make you feel as if you're looking at something new.  The film doesn't contain any memorable performances but I think Sanford Mitchell and J. Byron Foster are decent in the role of the killers.  The big-breasted Monika Kelly plays one half of the couple looking to track down why all the kitty cats are going crazy.  The special effects in the film are certainly nothing to write home about as we pretty much see the "corpse grinder" with a body going in one side and then the chopped up meat coming out the other.  The violence in the film is all rather tame and this includes the various cat attacks where the actor is either just holding a real cat and screaming or sometimes a fake cat is used.  Thankfully the film just runs 73-minutes because if it had been any longer then it really would have been hard to sit through as the pacing is extremely slow.  As you can tell, this isn't a good movie by any stretch of the imagination but at the same time it has some charm as long as you don't go in expecting anything special.  Those who enjoy this low-budget stuff will probably get a few kicks out of it including one redneck character who finds the woman upstairs being attacked so he slings the cat up against the wall.  We don't see anything but the sound effects used for the cat hitting the wall are priceless.

Ted V. Mikels


If you watch the making of featurette to the original 1971 film director Ted V. Mikels says that the movie made over $190,000 in one city in just one week.  I don't doubt this claim but I do wonder why he'd wait thirty-years before releasing a sequel because there's very little doubt that anyone in 2000 was wanting such a film.  The "sequel" is pretty much just a remake with added pieces of other stories thrown in.  The nephews of the men from the first film are back in business and uses corpses to make their cat food.  The cats eat this junk and eventually start attacking their owners.  The "new" story added here is a battle in outer space where cat people are being overtaken by dog people so the cats must come to Earth and try to find cat food that their planet can survive on.  Yeah, that pretty much sums up THE CORPSE GRINDERS 2 and the end results aren't nearly as good as one would hope but then again it's doubtful too many had high hopes considering how long it took this movie to come out.  From what I've read about Mikels he seems like a wonderful guy and what interviews I've seen it appears he's a wonderful man who loves to make movies.  Perhaps that's why he decided to revisit the original film all these years later as two years later he'd also make a sequel to his film THE ASTRO-ZOMBIES.  I'm guessing Mikels love of making movies is the main reason this sucker here clocks in at 100-minutes, which is at least half an hour too long.  At least the original movie ran under 75-minutes but this thing here just keeps going and going with new subplots coming up every few scenes.  The "remake" portion of the film isn't too bad as the idea of humans being used as cat food is rather funny and fans of the original film will probably enjoy seeing the director's new version of scenes.  The problem is with everything else as there's way too much useless story including everything going on between the two owners and their ways of getting the corpses.  The performances are all rather bland as you'd expect but we do get to see Dolores Fuller in a few scenes selling the cat food.  She wrote songs for Elvis but she's best remembered for being Ed Wood's girlfriend and appearing in his films like GLEN OR GLENDA? and BRIDE OF THE MONSTER.  She certainly doesn't do anything ground-breaking here but it's nice seeing her.  It's doubtful too many people outside of those who want to explore Mikels' filmmography are going to view this thing and that's probably good.  It's certainly a very bad movie but at least the director holds everything together and makes something comprehensible.

Astro-Zombies: M3 Cloned (2010) Posted Image


Ted V. Mikels


Eight years after MARK OF THE ASTRO-ZOMBIES, Mikels is back with the third film in the series.  This time out the government is working at Area 51 and want to bring the astro-zombies back to life to use in war.  One scientist thinks the zombies should be taught good things but sadly the evil wins out and soon the creatures escape the lab and start killing.  Yes, they have their machetes.  At over 80-years-old you can't help but tip your cap to Mikels for staying in the business for so long and still cranking out movies.  With that said, he certainly should have gotten a better story on hand because what we get here is incredibly painful to sit through and especially at 104-minutes.  I have no idea why on Earth anyone decided to have a "Z" grade, shot on digital video flick run this long as it pretty much kills everything fun that can be found here.  There's no question that the astro-zombies are still goofy fun in their own way and seeing them running around in groups is rather campy and fun.  Seeing their violent murder scenes is another plus as the machetes go through just about every body part you can think of with plenty of red stuff to follow.  That is fun but sadly this doesn't happen until nearly the 80-minute mark and everything that comes before this is just downright boring.  Everything dealing with the scientist and her boyfriend is boring.  Even more lame is everything trying to connect this film to the earlier movies and we even get a brief appearance of the fake head of John Carradine that showed up in the previous movie.  The film goes through all sorts of long dialogue sequences and there isn't a single one that is interesting or entertaining.  When people watch stuff like this they want exploitation and not just long dialogue talking about everything under the son.  None of the performances are anything to write home about but we do get brief bits by Mikels himself as well as Tura Satana and Shanti.  The film has a few clever touches including some of the canned cat food previously seen in THE CORPSE GRINDERS.  Also on hand are a new group of Doll Squad members who get to kick the astro-zombies around but again this happens way too late.  ASTRO-ZOMBIES: M3 CLONED is another really bad movie in a really, really bad series and is only for those who must watch anything they can.

Kevin Sean Michaels


Enjoyable documentary about the 60+ year career of director Ted V. Mikels who is best known for his low-budget flicks like THE ASTRO-ZOMBIES, THE CORPSE GRINDERS and BLOOD ORGY OF THE SHE DEVILS.  This film runs just over two hours and they actually have John Waters doing the narration and Mikels himself gets quite a bit of screentime.  The director discusses the previously mentioned films as well as THE DOLL SQUAD, his 80s war films and of course his most recent work like THE CORPSE GRINDERS 2 and MARK OF THE ASTRO-ZOMBIES.  There's certainly nothing overly terrific about this documentary but at the same time it's the only thing we currently have that takes a look at Mikels and his work.  What makes the documentary worth watching is the interview with Mikels where he shares his stories about the making of his films as well as some of the criticism he has received over the years.  The director comes across as an entertaining and charming person and certainly someone you'd love to discuss films with.  It's that same thing that left me somewhat disappointed that the film didn't focus more on his long career.  We brief get shown his editing equipment and we hear him say a couple times where he had to sell everything he owned to get a movie made.  These stories are the most interesting thing here so I really wouldn't have enjoyed more of this stuff.  This guy stuck around the business long after most had went into something else or simply retired so it would have been more entertaining hearing some of the stories about the trouble with low-budget films and how money did have to be raised.  Francine York, Shanti and Tura Satana are among those interviewed.


Jennifer on My Mind (1971) BOMB


Noel Black


Rich boy Marcus (Michael Brandon) meets rich hippie chick Jennifer (Tippy Walker) on a trip in Italy and follows her back to America where she's constantly wanting him to get her weed.  We're told all of this in flashbacks because in the current time Jennifer has died and Marcus is trying to figure out a way to get rid of her body.  When then go back to the flashbacks to see Jennifer dump, disrespect and humiliate Marcus at every chance she gets.  United Artist was apparently so embarrassed by this movie that the ended up cutting out fifteen-minutes worth of additional footage including some of Kim Hunter.  It's also clear that the studio was embarrassed by this thing because for nearly forty-years it was impossible to see as it never had a VHS, Laserdisc or DVD release but thankfully MGM finally put it on Netflix just so people can see that the film's horrid reputation was deserved.  I'm really not sure where to start on this thing because every single second is a complete disaster and for the life of me I can't understand what they were trying to do with this thing.  The screenplay is without question one of the worst I've ever had the misfortune of seeing because the thing jumps around so much that you have to wonder why.  Even stranger is why on Earth they have Marcus head over heels with this girl when there's never a single reason for him to care about her.  They really don't have any relationship outside her treating him bad and the screenplay never makes it clear why he keeps going after her.  The screenplay also doesn't know if it wants to be a comedy or drama because one second drugs are cool and then the next they're bad.  One second you have some sort of fake love story trying to be told and then you get comedy adventures of Marcus trying to get rid of the body.  One of these adventures includes him being attacked by Hells' Angels and another has a group of rednecks running him off the road.  Brandon seems lost for the majority of the running time and Walker doesn't do much better.  Her heroin fit towards the end of the movie is extremely poor and almost seems like an outtake from some of those drug movies of the 30s.  I had been wanting to watch this movie for a good two decades now because of Robert DeNiro playing a Gypsy taxi driver.  He's only in the film for a few minutes but there's no doubt that his steals the film and actually delivers a rather funny performance.  Barry Bostwick and Jeff Conaway have small roles as well.  JENNIFER ON MY MIND is without question one of the worst films of the decade but at the same time it's almost a must-see just for how bad it is.  Fans of DeNiro will certainly want to see his pre-Scorsese trip in the taxi as it's the only thing that saves this from being one of the worst of all time.

01/01/11: SHE BEAST (Michael Reeves, 1966) Posted ImagePosted Image


Michael Reeves’ official directorial debut – after his stint as an assistant director on CASTLE OF THE LIVING DEAD (1964; his modest contribution here is, erroneously, sometimes exaggerated by his cultists) – is, likewise, an Italian production of the Horror variety. Filmed under the title of REVENGE OF THE BLOOD BEAST and officially released in Italy as SISTER OF SATAN (although, LAKE OF SATAN, is apparently yet another name attributed to it over there!), the film’s best-known moniker is SHE BEAST – which is how it has been released on DVD, first by the budget outfit Alpha and, more recently, by the more respectable label Dark Sky Films.


Even though Reeves’ entire cinematic output consists of merely four titles, he managed the enviable feat of working with one genre icon apiece: Christopher Lee in CASTLE OF THE LIVING DEAD, Barbara Steele in SHE BEAST, Boris Karloff in THE SORCERERS (1967) and Vincent Price in WITCHFINDER GENERAL (1968), his last (and, undoubtedly, best) work. Actually, the contribution of Barbara Steele – the then-reigning ‘Scream Queen’ of Italian horror movies, ever since her breakthrough dual roles in (yet another legendary genre director) Mario Bava’s BLACK SUNDAY (1960) – to the film under review amounted to just one 22-hour day of the 18-day shooting schedule; her agent at the time, David Niven Jr., only alerted her of this clause on the day before she came on the set and, although she was a trouper, Steele had a major falling-out with producer Paul Maslansky…although, judging by the cordial and lively Audio Commentary on the Dark Sky DVD, any animosity between the two has long since faded away! Joined in this discussion is the film’s nominal lead and veritable Michael Reeves mascot, Ian Ogilvy; they had been schoolmates in their teenage years and Ogilvy would go on to star in all of Reeves’ directorial output.


The film opens with a witch-hunting sequence that anticipates the more notorious ones in WITCHFINDER GENERAL; the victim of the ‘trial by water’ (or, more exactly, stake through the heart!) has to be one of the ugliest female monsters to appear on celluloid and, in fact, was actually portrayed by a colored dancer sporting heavy – and highly effective – make-up…with hideous tooth-work and shriek-laden voice to match! Incidentally, one of the actor’s winding down activities on the set (according to Ogilvy) was trying to hitch rides from passing cars in full “She Beast” get-up…obviously, to the stopping drivers’ eternal chagrin! The cast also includes three other moderately familiar names of the period: John Karlsen (as the modern-day eccentric witch-hunter Count Von Helsing [sic]!), Mel Welles (as a boozing lecher of an inn-keeper) and Lucretia Love (appearing – in one of two surprisingly racy scenes in the film – as an innocent villager assaulted by Welles, just before he gets his own comeuppance from the rampaging titular creature); curiously enough, the other brief spot of nudity is provided by La Steele herself, during a night-time lovemaking scene with husband Ogilvy, that is witnessed by ‘peeping tom’ Welles – who is subsequently beaten up within an inch of his life by the understandably incensed guest!


Apart from Welles, the American side of the production is represented by producer Maslansky and second-unit director/uncredited co-screenwriter Charles B. Griffith; film conoisseurs will immediately associate the first with the POLICE ACADEMY franchise and the second (like Welles himself) with the earlier days of the Roger Corman stable. Despite both Maslansky and Griffith having worked on some intriguing fantasy stuff (CASTLE OF THE LIVING DEAD itself, 1972’s DEATH LINE, 1975’s RACE WITH THE DEVIL and 1977’s DAMNATION ALLEY, as well as two 1957 Corman productions, NOT OF THIS EARTH and THE UNDEAD respectively), unfortunately, it is their comedic vein which comes to the fore here in a truly misjudged and overstretched climactic “Keystone Kops”-type slapstick car chase (seemingly needed to pad out the running time to feature-length)! This not only involves an uncredited Maslansky himself – as one of three bumbling local cops, anticipating the similarly inept pursuing duo in Wes Craven’s LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT (1972)! – in a couple of mildly amusing pratfalls, but also the faintly surrealistic and completely illogical presence of an unknown motorcyclist that insistently reappears throughout this sequence!



01/02/11: THE VIRGIN OF NUREMBERG (Antonio Margheriti, 1963) Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image


This is a popular title in the Gothic tradition of Italian Horror cinema – from one of its most prolific exponents but, in hindsight, not really among the best examples – that I had been rather longing to see. In fact, I acquired it first in an English-dubbed version (also available on R1 DVD) and, subsequently, with its original Italian soundtrack (which is how I watched it now – although I do not recall it ever having played on Italian TV)! Curiously enough, while the film was released in the U.S. as HORROR CASTLE, the DVD sports the literal English translation of the Italian title (which refers to a particularly nasty medieval torture device).


Incidentally, despite the modern-day setting, events unfold completely in a vast ancient German castle! Similarly, the presence of genre icon Christopher Lee (billed Cristopher in the original Italian credits!) as a mysterious and sinister-looking manservant – bearing WWII-induced facial scars – proves misleading, since he is not actually the villain of the piece (although his character still perishes in the obligatory fiery climax)! The killer on the loose (who can also be considered a monster, given his hideous pre-DR. PHIBES look – ludicrously, as a result of the real-life failed “Valkyrie” attempt on Hitler’s life, and possibly inspired by the seminal EYES WITHOUT A FACE [1959]!) is a Crimson Executioner-type torturer, albeit anticipating that very film by two years.


The heroine is played by Rossana Podesta` (soon to be divorced from the film’s producer Marco Vicario), who spends much of the time prowling the castle grounds and conveniently discovering victims’ bodies. Her husband (Georges Riviere) not only shuns her assertions to the ghastly goings-on but absents himself for periods on end which clearly points the finger of suspicion towards him; this notion, however, is dissipated when he finds himself trapped in a flooded underground cave straight out of Fritz Lang’s THE TESTAMENT OF DR. MABUSE (1933)! As it turns out, the real identity of the bloodthirsty maniac is not all that hard to guess – despite the film boasting the writing talents of Ernesto (1962’s THE HORRIBLE DR. HICHCOCK) Gastaldi and Edmond T. (the 1960 version of THE HANDS OF ORLAC) Greville! Interestingly, the film is accompanied by an incongruously jazzy score by Riz Ortolani which works rather well; its main asset, however, is the enveloping brooding atmosphere vividly rendered through stylish color photography.


While Margheriti started out in low-brow sci-fi, he seemed to really find his métier within the Gothic Horror stakes, following this first effort with such effective examples as two Barbara Steele vehicles shot in monochrome – CASTLE OF BLOOD (though its color remake WEB OF THE SPIDER, dating from 1970, was a disappointment) and THE LONG HAIR OF DEATH (both 1964), THE UNNATURALS (1969) and SEVEN DEATHS IN THE CAT’S EYE (1973).

Had BEAST spent more time with the witch it certainly could have been much better.  I've had VIRGIN sitting here for ages but have yet to get to it.



Exit Through the Gift Shop (2010) Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image


Banksy


Simple documentary about a man who enjoys filming stuff so he finds himself in the underground painting scene of L.A. where he tries to track down a hard-to-find painter who is considered a genius.  There's been so much hype, anger and outright mayhem aimed at this movie that it probably comes rather shocking that someone who follows movies pretty well was blind to all of it.  I had heard about this documentary but the only thing I had heard was that it was a great film.  Having now viewed the film and did some more reading on it I must say that I feel a lot of the hype is just pointless because in the end it really doesn't matter if Banksy and Thierry Guetta are a hoax or not.  I'm really not sure if I would have viewed the film any differently had I known about the controversy but to me the film's main goal should be to entertain and this one certainly did that without any issues.  I really found the film to be quite memorizing simply because it so perfectly draws you into this street art world.  The early portions of the film were extremely exciting as Guetta goes out with these artists and captures these men and women at work creating a certain type of art that wouldn't be appreciated for many years to come.  Seeing how these people work and how much effort actually went into their creations was something that was very fun to watch.  It also doesn't hurt that the majority of the artists shown have a wonderful personality that makes you want to know more about them.  The same is true of Guetta because he's just so entertaining that you want to know more about him as well as see everything you can.  The second portion of the film really starts to make one question what is great art and what is just hype built up for no reason other than hype itself.  As someone who watches countless movies I always find it funny when a horrible movie begins to get a small group of people who enjoy it and before long it becomes a cool thing to enjoy said movie.  TROLL 2 is a good example of a film no one paying attention to but one person found it cool, passed the coolness to ten other people who then passed it around to more people where today the film is a cult favorite playing to sold out crowds and it even got a documentary of its own.  I'm not certain if the "art" in EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP is the same thing or if the filmmakers were wanting to look at it the same way but I do find it fascinating how one item can build up to something special whereas something perhaps more important or deserving gets overlooked or lost in the shuffle.


King's Speech, The (2010) Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image


Tom Hooper


Colin Firth turns in a marvelous performance as King George VI who finds himself working with a speech therapist (Geoffrey Rush) in order to cure a stammer problem.  The two men battle over the appropriate cure but things take a turn when England is about to enter WWII and the people are  needing a rousing speech to comfort them and lead them forward.  THE KING'S SPEECH isn't a flawless film as I had a few minor issues with it including some of the early stuff building up to the eventual speech.  I'd say the film could have ran a few minutes shorter but the performances here are so wonderful that you can overlook the minor issues.  I don't think there's any question that both Firth and Rush deliver two of the best performances in recent years because they are so good that you never once feel as if you're watching actors but instead you feel as if you're actually in the room with the real people that they are playing.  The performances are so flawless that they have no problem bringing the wonderful and witty dialogue to life.  The film, for the most part, is a comedy because it's a pretty strange situation when a man who makes his name by talking isn't able to get more than a word out.  The drama comes in as the famous speech is coming upon him and King George must deliver the news that they are entering WWII.  Being a fact-based film I'm sure most people are going to know what happens but the amount of drama in this sequence is thrilling and will have your eyes glued to the screen.  Firth comes across as a decent but weak man while Rush must come across as a decent but strong man.  The two are total opposites but through their differences they find that magic to make the story work so well.  Both men are bound to get Oscar-nominations and I don't think anyone would boo if they actually won.  Firth is masterful with all the speech stuff.  I've seen countless movies where actors have to stutter but Firth is flawless and really delivers what the role needs.  The speech problem really seems so natural that you never feel as if you're watching a performance.  When the final speech does come up the amount of energy, passion and fire in Firth's eyes alone are worth the price of admission.  Rush also turns in one of his most memorable performances in a very long time.  What really impressed me about Rush was his comic timing, which was like a beautiful chorus that the actor had to dance around and be right on cue at every moment.  The two men do a marvelous job together and make the film what it is.  Helena Bonham Carter is also wonderful as the King's wife and Guy Pearce is also memorable as the brother.  THE KING'S SPEECH is more about the strange friendship than any sort of politics, which is a good thing because the screenplay delivers enough fire to keep people entertained even if they don't know this part of history.  The performances by the leads are what makes THE KING'S SPEECH so special and reason alone to watch.

Other Guys, The (2010) Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image


Adam McKay


Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg play opposite types of detectives who find themselves paired up with sometimes disastrous results.  After several failed police issues, the two men find themselves on a mysterious case involving a financial backer who might have more than one group after him.  I will admit right off that I'm not a fan of Will Ferrell and there have been many times where I'm left blind as to why people find him funny.  I'll admit that I rarely go by trailers when it comes down to watching movies but the teaming of Ferrell with Wahlberg just seemed too promising to pass up and the film actually works for the majority of the running time.  I say the majority because the final thirty-minutes start to run out of gas as the jokes stop flying as fast and we're left with a lot of silly action scenes with way too much CGI explosions.  The first hour is one major laugh as another as the screenplay is going several miles a minute in terms of jokes being thrown around.  You get the typical humor involving Ferrell being kicked on for being a nerd but you also get a nice running gag of every hot woman wanting his body.  Ferrell fits the role perfectly because he can come across as that dork that gets picked on but when it comes down for him to snap he also handles it perfectly well.  I really loved the stuff where he has a flashback to his college days when he worked as a pimp and how the pimp dialogue finds its way of coming out of him.  Wahlberg isn't the greatest comedic actor in the world but I think he manages to role very nicely.  He has no problem bringing the toughness of the character but I thought his comic timing was extremely good especially in the scenes where he struggles to understand why Ferrell is getting all these beautiful women.  The supporting cast is pretty good as we get Eva Mendes showing off her body and Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson supply a pretty funny cameo.  It was also great seeing Michael Keaton back in a nice role.  The humor is all over the place as we get gay jokes, dirty sex jokes and a hilarious bit that mixes the two as homeless gay men have an orgy in the back of Ferrell's car.  Everything that follows the "investigation" into his stolen car will have tears running down your face.  As I said, THE OTHER GUYS eventually runs out of gas but it's still worth viewing for the first hour.


Salt (2010) Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image


Phillip Noyce


CIA Agent Evelyn Salt (Angelina Jolie) is accused of being a spy for Russia with plans on killing the Russian president to set off a world war.  Salt eventually breaks free and tries to prove her innocence while at the same time stopping the real bad guys.  In my opinion SALT goes down as one of the dumbest action movies in the history of cinema.  The screenplay has so many plot holes that you could fly a plane the size of Russia through it.  There are action scenes that are so fake and impossible that you can't help roll your eyes.  The idea of Salt being able to get into the White House and down into the emergency area where a nuclear attack is about to begin is just crazy.  Every single inch of this movie has cheese all over it but at the same time the thing is simply entertaining.  It's hard to believe that someone would attempt to do a film like this because of how crazy it is.  At times I had to remind myself that I wasn't watching some sort of spoof as I was waiting for Jolie to utter "Salt.  Evelyn Salt."  This movie has so many crazy scenes yet director Noyce holds all of them together with some nice style and of course we get a strong performance by Jolie who sells every bit of craziness.  One of the biggest action sequences in the film has Salt running away from dozens of cops and eventually jumping off a bridge and onto a moving semi.  She then jumps from semi A to semi B where she eventually jumps on a few more things only to take off once again.  This entire sequence perfectly sums up the film because the action is nice but at the same time it's so crazy and over the top that you can't help but wonder if anyone was really expecting you to take it serious.  The entire story is just downright crazy as this attempt to take over the world and star a war is something that "C" movies from the 50s would be laughing at.  If it sounds like I'm being overly hard on the film I'm really not meaning to.  The craziness here isn't a bad thing because it's part of the reason SALT is so entertaining.  Jolie has no problem fitting the role with that laid back humor and toughness.  She even gets to do some dramatic acting in the final few minutes, which I won't ruin.  The supporting cast includes nice work by Liev Schreiber and Chiwetel Ejiofor.  If you're unable to turn your brain off for 100-minutes then I'd recommend you stay away from this film because it's "plot" will probably be too much for you to overlook.  If you can sit back and enjoy a lot of craziness and action then SALT is just the film for you.


Knight and Day (2010) Posted ImagePosted Image


James Mangold


Disappointing romantic-action-comedy has Tom Cruise playing secret agent Roy Miller who crosses paths with June (Cameron Diaz) in an airport and soon the two are wrapped up in drama as they try to escape the bad guys with a priceless battery the size of a AA that has the power to light an entire city.  KNIGHT AND DAY made "news" for not doing that well at the box office but I really couldn't care how well or bad a film does since I don't have any stake in what they make.  I know Cruise is a villain now days and many people want to see anything he does crash and burn but I'm not one of them.  I've been a fan for years and continue to be one no matter what he does in his personal life.  With that said, I have to side with those who called KNIGHT AND DAY a complete misfire.  It's somewhat surprising to see so many positive reviews of this thing and if you read the good and bad stuff it seems you level of entertainment is going to depend on Cruise and Diaz.  I personally found them to have zero chemistry and this pretty much killed everything else that was going on in the film.  I didn't find their flirting to be charming and much of the romance just seems forced, uninspired and at times laughable.  It's well known that the screenplay went through various stages with all sorts of actors being attached to the part and it's funny that Cruise was rumored to have turned down SALT, which was re-written for Jolie.  The two films have quite a bit in common with the biggest one being the over-the-top action.  Whereas Jolie made SALT fun no matter how stupid the story was the two stars here can't do the same thing.  Cruise really comes across lazy, boring and just going by-the-numbers.  Diaz is meant to be cute and charming but I found most of what she does here to be extremely annoying.  The scene most have witness in the trailer where she's suppose to wait until three and run but instead runs after one is just poorly handled and doesn't work at all.  Director Mangold had previously handled WALK THE LINE, COPLAND and HEAVY but sadly he adds very little here.  The entire style is rather boring and the action scenes don't contain an ounce of energy or drama.  KNIGHT AND DAY isn't a completely horrid film but it's simply a disappointing one that runs extremely cold and without much going for it.
