(es) wrote: Man...this was kind of boring. Romero wanted to do a Dead movie for every decade, he missed the 90s, but he was able to come back with a decent film in "Land of the Dead" in 2005. Then he made "Diary of the Dead" 2 years later, and it wasn't great...but then he made a third film in the same decade...and it just feels like he is out of ideas in his old age, and just doing what is expected of him. There are no badass characters, or likable ones here either. The Irish accents are laughable at best. I don't care about the O'Flynns and the Muldoons. By the way Patrick O'Flynn and Seamus Muldoon are the most cliche Irish names possible. Then there is the CGI...which looks terrible and has replaced the great practical gore of old...which was vastly more believable and frightening to look at. Shame that the series has to end on this kind of note. Maybe Romero will get a solid idea and make another good film. I doubt it though, I suspect he is out of ideas for zombies, the box office for this film wasn't nearly enough to warrant more, and he is getting quite up there in the age department. So watch at your own risk, you are bound to be bored, because the movies pacing is slow as hell, and there isn't even enough of the crappy gore to really appeal to the gore fans.

As a director, Ozu was never going to tear up the turf and produce a thrill-a-minute movie. He opted for quiet, observational ruminations on the family life and what the passage of time does to it (for better and worse). And that??s generally what we have here but none of it ??clicks?? like his other works. You have a series of stories to juggle, including a squabbling/gossipy group of women trying to track down misplaced dues money, two young boys who take a vow of silence after their parents refuse to buy them a TV (it??s not like they can??t, rather, the father doesn??t want to because he has heard TV will produce millions of idiots? which yeah, he has a point) and a 20-something couple who confess their love for one another via talking about the weather (which, if you try this and it works in today??s day and age, marry that person because clearly they have a sense of humor that is good enough to put up with you and your conversation mannerisms). The plot threads meander back and forth into each story but it??s hard to become attached to any of these characters (save for the grandma and the younger of the two silent kids). And maybe that??s the point since a good chunk of this movie deals with the meaninglessness of idle chatter adults use (stuff like ??how are you???, ??good morning,?? ??take care,?? etc. are tossed about on a regular basis to the point where they have legitimately lost their meaning). Maybe we??re supposed to be disassociated with the characters? and the plot? and the pace. I don??t know. I do know Ozu has done better and chances are good you??ll put this one out of your mind when you see his other stuff (though to be fair, this is a remake of one of his other movies, which I haven??t seen, so maybe he got the formula right the first time around and got crazy with this one and ended up with a finished product that was pretty blah).
(it) wrote: The follow-up to Clive Barker's Hellraiser is a terrific horror flick with a great cast, great effects and very good directing provided by Tony Randel. As far as sequels are concerned, Hellbound is one of the better sequels in a horror franchise. Usually a sequel tends to lack the power of the original film, however this is not the case for Hellbound. Though not as great as Hellraiser; this film has all the necessary elements to create the effective terror that Hellraiser fans have come to expect. This film is designed to disturb its audience and like the first film, it does it very well. Though Clive Barker didn't direct this film, you can still see his imagination run wild throughout the film. The film succeeds at delivering dark images of melancholic painful terror. This film is a worthy enough sequel to Clive Barker's original masterpiece, and it continues where the first left off. Lead actresses Clare Higgins and Ashley Laurence reprise their roles from the first film, and it brings an even greater sense of continuity to the film. Fans of the first film will most likely enjoy this film, and like the first Hellraiser, it remains a must see film for fans. This is the best sequel in the entire franchise, and as the series progressed; it's easy to see why. If you've enjoyed the first film, then give this one a view, you'll most likely going to enjoy it as much as Barker's classic of terror.
