  • Review: Crank

    Review: Crank

    Rating: 3.5 out of 5

    Short version: An insane, bloody, gratuitous, funny rollercoaster of a movie that doesn’t pretend to be anything beyond that

    Jason Statham in CrankGoing in, the one thing I didn’t expect this movie to be was funny. I had more laugh out loud moments during Crank than I did while watching the supposed comedy Clerks II. Before you decide to go see this, be aware that it earns its R-rating on every level: content, situations, language, violence, gore, sex and nudity. (Fine, now everyone will rush out to go see it.)

    Review: Slither

    Rating: 3.5 out of 5

    Short version: Gory and gross, as it should be, but not as funny as it should.

    Slither: I don't feel so good...I was really looking forward to watching Slither. It looked like one of those “wink at the audience” horror flicks, with the sense of humor found in Tremors and great NON-CGI special effects. Plus it starred Nathan Fillion of Serenity, and I’ve become a big fan of his laid back and slightly Southern acting style.

    Now don’t get me wrong, I didn’t hate it, I just didn’t love it.

  • Review: Hostel

    Review: Hostel

    Rating: 3 out of 5

    Short version: Horror, nudity and gore reminiscent of early 1980′s horror films, but with a stronger story.

    A paying customer in HostelBe warned: If you are not a fan of movies that splash gore, body parts and guts across the screen, Hostel is most definitely not for you. Hostel is rated “R” and for damn good reasons.

    When I review movies, depending on the film, I sometimes try to judge a movie not only from a general perspective, but when applicable also as it fits into a specific genre. As a horror movie, I think Hostel achieves it’s goal of, well, horrifying the audience and it gets points for going in a different direction than I expected from the trailer and commercials. On a broader scale it wasn’t too bad either.

    Review: King Kong (2005)

    Rating: 3.5 out of 5

    Short version: When it’s good, it’s very good, but when it’s not, it feels really, REALLY long.

    King Kong and Naomi WattsWatching Peter Jackson’s version of King Kong, it is abundantly clear that the man feels as strongly about the original 1933 film as he did about Tolkein’s Lord of the Rings books. One can really feel how earnestly he guided this film, paying homage to the original while expanding on it more than just a little bit. Unfortunately the “expansion” is one of the problems with the movie, but I’ll get to that in a bit.

  • Review: Freaked

    Review: Freaked

    By Vic Holtreman

    Rating:

    3 out of 5

    Short version: Probably the wierdest movie you’ve never heard of, a bizarre combination of Monty Python, Mad Magazine, Freaks and Airplane!.

    Brooke Shields and Alex Winter get Freaked I have no doubt that 99% of the folks reading this review have probably never heard of a film called Freaked. It was shot back in 1993 with a surprisingly substantial budget ($12 million) for this type of film, but it never saw the light of day beyond one or two film festivals. I can only guess that the writers/directors managed to get it made without any studio oversight, and once the final print was screened the execs recoiled in abject horror at what their millions had given birth to and immediately buried it. However, like a zombie it has risen from the dead and was recently released on DVD.

    Freaked is one of those movies that puts you in a dazed and confused state until you finally settle into the rhythm of the thing. Imagine a Abraham/Zucker film (Airplane!, Kentucky Fried Movie) without the (cough) subtlety. 8) It’s gross and at times cornball, but it has a spirit of reckless abandon to it that puts a grin on your face when you think of the brass it took for these guys to make this movie.

    Review: Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

    By Vic Holtreman

    Rating: 3.5 out of 5

    Short version: With far more strong points than weak, the curse of Episodes I & II has been lifted at last.

    Anakin on his way to the dark sideRedemption.

    No, not for Anakin Skywalker… for George Lucas.

    Although not perfect, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith rises far above the awfulness of Episode I and the mediocrity of Episode II. Time will tell, but for me I think this one will fall right behind The Empire Strikes Back in terms of overall Star Wars excellence. This says a lot considering that I’m in Lucas’ “over 25″ group that was weaned on the original trilogy and thought I & II were pretty awful.
