A Viewing Of The Return Of The Living Dead Is Definitely In Order

October 19, 2013 | 3 Comments » | Topics: Movies |

This is one of those very rare films that combines good black humor with bloody, messy gore and does it perfectly. Long before `28 Days Later’ appeared, `Return of the Living Dead’ presented us with FAST zombies, zombies who could run, jump and work together like a football team, tackling people and making it a group effort to tear their victims apart. There are very few slow, shuffling monsters here; these are zombies to contend with. They talk, they think, they problem solve. Who could ever forget the Tar Man (my personal favorite) rigging up a device to tear down the metal closet doors, behind which our heroine has locked herself? 
This film never lets up, not for one minute. There are no long explanation scenes, no boring set-up, just in-your-face excitement from the very first scene. It is the perfect homage to the Romero films; there is no happy ending here, only an ironic twist which will make even the most cynical doomsayer grin. This film is already a cult classic and deserves its status. It’s as close to flawless as you can get.

The Greatest Worst Movie Of All Time: The Room

October 16, 2013 | 2 Comments » | Topics: Movies |

Forget Godfather, forget Citzen Kane, forget Schindler’s List, forget what you read, forget what you watched, The Room is hands down the best movie ever made. Written, directed and produced by Tommy Wisseau, The Room is everything and anything and even more than you could ask for in a movie. It’s drama, it’s suspense, it’s mystery, it’s an exploration into the human condition, it’s timeless, it’s a masterpiece. I could go on and on but my words are futile to such a genius piece of work….

If Anyone Wants To Regret An Hour And A Half Of Their Life, Watch THIS

June 4, 2013 | No Comments » | Topics: Movies |

fantastic four the movie

I bought it from a comic-con about ten years ago. He had it hidden under the table. It was very much like buying a monkeys’s paw from a bazaar in Morocco. The wrinkly old man in the crimson robe (to be fair he was dressed like a sith lord) warned me. “I will sell it to you, but you must never watch it. For if you do bad luck and misfortune will infest your pathetic soul for all eternity.” So I said “yeah whatever.” And threw my ten bucks at him whilst snatching it from his hand. I quickly returned home to watch it. The horrors contained inside that little blue box can’t be described. The acting, the effects, the mole men! Oh god why? Since then I’ve lost my job, my wife left me, and my pets keep dying. I can’t sell or trade the damn thing because I don’t want anyone else to go through what I’ve seen. So it just sits there on my DVD shelf waiting to claim it’s next victim.

Why Glengarry Glen Ross Is One Of The Greatest Movies Of All Time

glengarry glen ross

What else can be written about James Foley’s adaptation of David Mamet’s Pulitzer prize winning play other than devastatingly scorching.

Jack Lemmon, Al Pacino, Ed Harris, Alec Baldwin, Kevin Spacey, Alan Arkin, and Jonathan Pryce: perhaps the greatest acting ensemble ever put before a camera, collectively portray employees of a real estate agency- the sales department. Some of the greatest characters written in the 20th century cinema. Lemmon, ‘the machine’ Levene, is the old hero, now on a steady and sharp decline. Revered by others. Pacino,Ricky Roma the hot shot. He keeps an arm’s length from everyone. Alan Arkin, George, is simply the loser. Never was hot, never will be – totally hopeless. Ed Harris is Dave Moss, a fighter, kinda like DeNiro in Raging Bull. Not hot, willing to do anything to reach the top. Like a rabid pitbull. Frustrated and at the boiling point. Kevin Spacey, Williamson, is the manager. A puppet of the owners, a real pencil pusher. But at least he doesn’t live off of door-to-door sales. Alec Baldwin, in his greatest performance of his career, only taking up a mere 10 mins of screen time, tears the screen to shreds and burns the film up with one of the most incendiary, provocative, foul-mouthed, scene-chomping speeches ever. I was 17 when I saw this in the theatre and Alec Baldwin blew my mind with that scene. In college we used to watch this film over and over and rewind the speech 10 times over. We knew every line, every gesture. Jack Lemmon’s face when Baldwin yells "Put that coffee down! Coffee’s for closers". Or "You see this watch? this watch costs more than your car".We would kill ourselves laughing, that’s how much we loved it.
