(kr) wrote: Ivy Ho ventures into an easier territory with her second feature after the restrained excercise in style of Claustrophobia. But while Crossing Hennessy might seem lightweight at first glance, with it's visual sincerity and casual feel, it features some recognizably real characters with real issues, even up to par with those in her previous movie. Even though the movie indeed strikes a comic chord, especially in Jacky Cheung's extremely pampered middle-aged slacker character, he is soon revealed to be a pretty sad clown who's faced some rather bitter life choices. And Ho latches an even sadder backstory onto Oi Ling, magnificently played by the criminally mistreated Tang Wei in a great comeback role. Love happens, of course, since Crossing Hennessy is marketed as a romantic comedy, but not predictably or easily. In fact, the most genuinely felt romance going on in the movie is the one between Tang Wei's character and Andy On's brutish boyfriend, and that one ends up far from happily. So far, it looks like Ivy Ho made a good call when switching to both writing and directing.

It has Matthew (Michael Caine) and Victor (Joseph Bologna) who work in a big company in So Paulo, Brazil. Matthew's marriage to wife Karen (Valerie Harper) is in doubt, so the men decide to go on a holiday to Rio de Janeiro, where they rent a nice house with a good view. Along for the ride is Matthew's daughter Nikki (Demi Moore) and Victor's daughter Jennifer (Michelle Johnson). At the beach one night, a moment of passion comes over Jennifer and Matthew. The next day, Jennifer declares her love for Matthew, much to his fear, what's going to happen if Victor finds out, so he tries to cover it up. Alot of the comedy in the film doesn't work, and a plot like this would have been more suited to someone like Blake Edwards, indeed it does feel like a cash in on 10 (1979). There are laughs, but not alot. Unsurprisingly, it was Donen's last film.

It not even a real horror what it seem like on the trailer. It had some stupid jokes at the wrong part.The killing, how she become this and another demon is pretty cool. What never disappoint me that Megan fox always show her sexual side even when she bad.Megan Fox have a long career to become a better actor but this film need to be better...a lot better.
(us) wrote: We watched the first Nosferatu. We liked the first Nosferatu. It was one in the morning when we popped in Werner Herzog's 1979 remake, Nosferatu the Vampyre. While my brother, my friend, and I could all agree that we enjoyed ourselves during the 1922 original, we equally agreed that we sincerely hoped and expected the remake to be a legitimately scary horror classic. And for the first 20 or 25 minutes, I was totally picking up what this movie was putting down. It was very much like the original, but obviously updated and with better production values. The movie didn't begin to loose me until the iconic bedroom scene. If you've ever seen either version of this movie, you know what I'm talking about. It's Jonathan's second night at Count Dracula's castle, Nosferatu stalks him into his bedroom and nearly drinks his blood. But the remake just butchers this scene, loosing all of the original movie's atmospheric creepiness. And from there, it's just a laundry-line of iconic scenes being ruined. The scene where Jonathan finds Nosferatu in the coffin? Much better in the original. The famous boat scene? Cut down to nothing more than a confusing side-note. I'm no Nosferatu purist, but I can understand poorly executed filmmaking when I see it. And after the initial 20-ish minutes, the movie slows to a crawl. This is literally the most lazily edited movie I have ever seen. Every single scene is executed at a snail's pace. The characters seem to move in slow-motion. And in retrospect, when you remember that the movie isn't even two hours long, you really realize what a slog this movie truly is. The middle sixty-five minutes could very well put you right to sleep, and I wouldn't blame you one bit. So we were now about an hour and twenty-five minutes into the film. Our patients was wearing extremely thin with the movie's insistence on moving at a pace typically reserved for petrified molasses going uphill. It's now after two thirty in the morning, but we regrouped, cleared our heads, and focused up for the final twenty minutes of the movie. Much to our dismay, boredom turned to hilarious disgust as the movie spiraled from dull but watchable, to totally detestable. The final 20 minutes features Jonathan's wife, Lucy, having to take on Nosferatu head on. Out of nowhere, the movie slathers on some Humanism that didn't sit well with me. Then the filmmaking went from boring - to really trippy. Lucy wanders the plauge-ridden streets, watching the surreal activities of the remaining people that are left alive. Jonathan returns home, but he has completely lost his mind. All this comes to a head when Lucy realizes that she must sacrifice herself to kill Nosferatu and stop the plauge. And once again, the movie takes this opportunity to ruin an iconic scene. The fact that the source material might have done it this way doesn't mean that the remake does it better than the original. As Nosferatu makes his way to Lucy to drink her blood, the movie jettisons the completely iconic and awesome stairway shadow scene. And it doesn't get better from there. The actual blood drinking scene takes an unfortunately kinky turn. As I watched this with my brother and friend, we couldn't help but laugh at the fact that we are three (usually normal) teenagers, sitting there watching something that is one step shy of German vampire porn. It was bizarre, and yet undeniably hilarious. So the movie stumbles along to the finish line. At the end, we see that while Nosferatu might be dead, Jonathan is turning into a vampire. The last shot of the movie (about a minute long) is of Jonathan riding off into the sunset with outlandish Catholic chanting in the background. It took about five seconds for all three of us to burst out laughing, practically on cue. The prevailing thought was "what the heck did we just watch?" The filmmaking itself is a big step down from the 1922 film. Werner Herzog's direction is flat and boring. His script in no way improves on the first movie. And the original version was a silent movie... Herzog cuts out (or completely ruins) the most iconic scenes from the original. The editing is at both times choppy and grossly neglected. After the fact, it became obvious that the music is the source of the vast majority of the unintentional humor present in the movie. Oh, and the movie isn't scary ... at all. That's the main thing I was expecting the film to improve upon the original was the horror aspect. One would think that the movie made in 1979 would be scarier than the one made in 1922. But no, it really isn't. With one exception, the acting is abysmal. Klaus Kinski plays Nosferatu ... and he's a disgrace to Max Schreck. There's no power behind the performance. His dialogue is delivered in the whiniest way. He sounds like a pathetic sad sack every time he opens his mouth. And his breathing is so distracting! He's supposed to be a chilling vampire. And yet he's gasping for breath in every scene! But in the acting department, the one who takes the cake is Roland Topor as Renfield. I'm dead serious, this is the worst performance I have seen in my entire life. Topor is trying so painfully hard, which only makes it painfully hard to watch. And yet, you can tell that he thinks he's nailing the performance in every scene... If this movie had a face, I would punch it. The only good performance is Isabelle Adjani as Lucy. The character is pretty horrible, but Adjani's performance is a shining beacon in this contemptible movie. I honestly couldn't hate this movie any more than I already do. It's the dregs of cinema, passed off as art. Off the top of my head, I can only think of one movie that I dislike more than this. Watching this film with my brother and my friend was truly a bonding experience. And I can assure you, Nosferatu the Vampyre will be a movie that we'll gladly love to hate for months, if not years, to come. "Death is not the worst. There are things more horrible than death." - like watching this movie - 0/10
