District 9

District 9

DISTRICT 9 (2009) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1136608/ Neill Blomkamp DISTRICT 9 was spot on on so many levels that it’s hard to keep track of for me. There is the technical side of the film and how it was made with the script, acting and technology playing key roles. Then you have the social messages about human beings and how they treat and mistreat each other. Then I think there is another very interesting aspect of the film – the polarization … Read entire article »

Inglourious Basterds

Inglourious Basterds

Inglourious Basterds (2009) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0361748/ Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill) “You probably heard we ain’t in the prisoner-takin’ business; we in the killin’ Nazi business. And cousin, Business is a-boomin’.” THANK you up there….whomever you are…for setting me up with an awesome way to see Quentin Tarantino’s new epic INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS in San Francisco’s classic Castro Theater with the man himself in attendance. Tarantino himself. Days before the release, the people of IndieFest put together a fundraiser screening of … Read entire article »

Dog Soldiers

Dog Soldiers

Dog Soldiers  2002 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0280609/ Neil Marshall  (DOOMSDAY 2008) DOG SOLDIERS is one of my favorite werewolf films right along greats like American Werewolf in London and The Howling. It’s not exactly as great as either one of these films mind you, but it is fun and entertaining. Marshall’s style shines through as he tells the tale of British army exercises gone horribly wrong in the Scottish Highlands. Soon, boring maneuvers turn into a life and death fight between man … Read entire article »

Pineapple Express

Pineapple Express

Pineapple Express (2008) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0910936/ David Gordon Green (Suspiria remake in 2010) Seth Rogen and James Franco star in this modern day Odd Couple pairing that tells the tale of two potheads who get involved in a drug war. The story is thin in the beginning and I was ready to turn it off during the first act. It was more Seth Rogen delivery and tons of pothead humor. The drug dealing baddies and bad cops are wooden for … Read entire article »

Punch Drunk Love

Punch Drunk Love

Punch Drunk Love    2002 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0272338/ Paul Thomas Anderson (Magnolia 1999 / There will Be Blood 2007) Adam Sandler jumps out of the slapstick goof role for something a little more downbeat in this romantic comedy. He works in a crap job out of something like a warehouse. He’s existing, but looking for something else in his life. Something meaningful. He has overbearing sisters who try to get him to date. Emily Watson plays the would be love interest … Read entire article »

The Fall

The Fall

The Fall   2006 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0460791/ Tarsem Singh (The CELL) The tale of stuntman Roy Walker (Lee Pace) telling a story to a little girl (Catinca Untaru) while they recover from their falls in 1920’s LA is pretty interesting in and of itself. Introduce the story the man weaves and its stunning visuals and it becomes a real treat. Tarsem Singh has a real knack for luscious visuals and amazing colors. He directed THE CELL and managed to amaze me despite … Read entire article »

Lust Caution

Lust Caution (Se, jie)    2007  Ang Lee  (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2000) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0808357/ Tony Leung  and Wei Tang are on fire in this period drama about an attempt to assassinate an important official in Japanese-ruled Shanghai. To capture the official, the would-be student assassins need bait – a beautiful woman to snare him so they can get close enough to do the deed. While the main plot involves the planning and work involved to get close to the … Read entire article »

Thirst (Bakjwi)

Thirst (Bakjwi)

Thirst (Bakjwi) 2009  Chan-wook Park http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0762073/ Chan-wook Park takes a break from the world of vengeance to slip wondrously into the surreal and mythic with a take on the vampire mythos that struck home for me. Kang-ho Song (The Host) plays Priest Sang-hyeon – a priest who volunteers to be a guinea pig of sorts to help find a cure for a horrid, 100% fatal disease. He survives…but with some truly horrid side effects. When he returns … Read entire article »
