Hannibal

Oh GOD, this movie pissed me off so much. First off, I know it’s useless to compare a film to its literary counterpart. I know. Trust me, I know…Everyone’s first instinct is to point out the little differences and favorite parts that were cut out. It’s to be expected when you turn a 1,000 page, […]

The Cell

Drugs. This guy has done a lot of drugs. As farfetched as the concept for this film was, somehow it worked. But it goes without saying that the plot was secondary to the cinematography. This was an amazingly beautiful, yet disturbing film to watch. The sets were amazing and the costumes were crazy. The only […]

Sleepy Hollow

Cleavage! I saw this when it originally came out in the theaters and I remember leaving the theater vaguely disappointed. After renting it, I still can’t put my finger on why. It was beautifully filmed, it had a decent cast and an amazing director. This is definitely a case where the individual parts are greater […]

Final Destination

When they kill someone, they kill the fuck out of them. Seriously, they kill people like 5 or 6 times. Which is damn cool. And it’s gory as hell. There’s blood everywhere. So it’s another typical teen slasher. Actually, Final Destination was better than I thought it would be, though that’s not saying too much. […]

American Psycho

“I absolutely loved it. It reminded me of ‘My Fair Lady.’ And it was the only movie I’ve seen that made me want to go out and buy new luggage.” — John Waters on the film “American Psycho.” Hmmmm…I never knew that a naked man, covered in blood, chasing a prostitute with a chainsaw could […]

Fight Club

So I went to go see Fight Club for the 3rd time a few days ago…I just can’t get enough of it. I am a heathen. Do you know why? Because I enjoyed Fight Club more than American Beauty. Can you believe that? Me neither. American Beauty is a much better film, but I enjoyed […]

Cruel Intentions

How this film got a PG-13 is beyond me. [Oops, I checked and see it was Rated R – my Bad!] Mindless trash entertainment…but entertainment nonetheless. I was made to watch this crap late at night with Debra and April, feasting on Tom Thumb sushi and cheap beer. I didn’t pay to rent it, so […]

Stir of Echoes

I almost puked when he pulled his tooth out. What the hell is it with the trend in tooth trauma this year? First, there is the bloody bundle of teeth in The Blair Witch Project and now this! Creepy film. I have not seen The Sixth Sense yet, so I must be the only one […]

Stigmata

The trailer lied! The trailer made it look like some gay-ass Exorcist ripoff, but it’s not. I promise! There is so much more going on in this film than that. It caused a long theological discussion with my friend Rhett afterwards, a subject I am usually loathe to discuss with friend, lest they discover my […]

In Dreams

Titanic, Psycho and Sybil in a blender. You’ve got got the decrepit underwater city that reminds one a bit too much of the remains of the Titanic. You’ve got the ‘evil mother caused the boy to turn into a killer’ angle. You’ve got the psychological trauma of voices in the head. On top of that, […]
