(mx) wrote: watched [b]Undead[/b]. ballsy, good Australian zombie movie. made entirely on a budget of the directors and actors, and anybody else willing to donate, and edited on their home computer for 9 months, this has been a festival favorite for a while. the main character is a LOT less bad ass then the trailer suggests, and despite how unclear and messy it can be at times, it's quite a good movie. so far it's only been released in Australia, but hopefully some American distributor will get some fucking balls and release this, hell, even straight-to-DVD so people can see this. fuck, they never do... they may as well just fucking remake it. no wait, Hollywood, if you're reading this. please. don't. i was kidding... :(

The region 2 disc is gorgeous, and I really hope this film gets a proper region 1 release. A beautiful and haunting film, that echoes and refracts the great films of Ozu.
(ag) wrote: After an erotic encounter with a strange woman, healthy high-schooler Jeremy Capello begins having strange experiences and cravings. It is only until he is informed by a man named Modoc that he understands he is turning into a vampire. And soon these changes begin to affect Jeremy's liking for a nerdy girl Darla, as well as attract the attention of a mad vampire hunter. And we're right back to that magical world of the 80's where action flicks ruled and movies were largely compiled of cheese. This one follows the latter. The acting from Robert Sean Leonard as Jeremy is done quite nicely, and really draws us into liking our typical straight-arrow teenage main character. Unfortunately the remainder of the cast fails to hold up the standard Leonard sets. His parents, played by Kenneth Kimmins and Fannie Flagg, serve as an amusing side-plot, but fail to put forth the theatrical effort when it counts. His friend Ralph (Evan Mirand) and girl Darla (Cheryl Pollak) give better performances. Not by much, but the mood is very rarely spoiled. Sadly the best supporting performances came from those with the least amount of screen time. David Warner plays the mad Professor McCarthy well while he and his partner Grimsdyke (played by Paul Wilson) provide much of the driving narrative and a good share of the comedy. The plot is simple enough; kid gets turned into a vampire and has to deal with it along with the everyday problems of a regular teenager. The script is a fine little comedy rolling on wheels of Gorgonzola, delivering a steady flow of modest campy humor without detracting from the story. The goal of which was to cover all the bases of a basic teenage lifestyle and the effects being a vampire can have on them, in which it succeeds. This take on vampires is an interesting one; the film takes care to fully flesh-out it out and makes it work well with the comedic feel without ridiculing or spoiling other ideas of vampires. In my book it's a successful teenage satire that also happens to be an interesting vampire tale. Being an 80's film, it's drenched in nostalgia-inducing music that nicely compliments the light air of the film. There are a few bad cuts here and there along with a plethora of small technical errors alongside them, but they hardly put down the film. What does put down the film is the ending. Prepare to open the mozzarella floodgates for this disappointing conclusion where just about every flaw of the film comes to a head. Thankfully it is a swift cap to an otherwise guilty-pleasure film. Overall it's nothing great. But it is a nice, fluffy, 80's popcorn flick with some decent simple humor and a fun script. The supporting cast performances are a bit spotty, but thankfully overshadowed by the fine work from Robert Leonard. Even if you can't stand it, it only lasts for a normal 90 minutes. I give "My Best Friend is a Vampire" 5.5 pints of pig blood out of 10.

My desire to learn more about certain historical figures, this case being Ed Wood (Johnny Depp) and Bela Lugosi (Martin Landeau), can blind me from judging the merits of the movie as a movie. I'll try to articulate my judgment simply: I grew up on Mystery Science Theater 3000, and through that show, I fell in love with B-movies. I was very familiar with the works of Ed Wood, when going into this movie. I was delighted by how much passion that Ed Wood had for his preposterous cinematic vision, and horrified by how little hope that Bela Lugosi had left in his final years of cinematic presence. Depp and Landeau presented themselves as desperate movie lovers, and, with the bizarre touches of Tim Burton (other than Schindler's List, there weren't and aren't many mainstream movies coming out in B&W), the story was surprisingly brought to heartwarming life. This is definitely one of Burton's most restrained works. Without anything supernatural at work, one's attention falls less on the special effects or set design (at best, the recreation of the minimal budget work that Ed Wood himself could barely afford), and more on character and story development. Good on Tim Burton for trying something new. Where many of his other films would sometimes delude how we saw its own characters, Ed Wood (the movie) doesn't cloud anything. We see Wood struggle to embrace his gender-swapping behaviours, as well as his "avant-garde" style of filmmaking. And so, looking at the story as another tale of self-acceptance may make one wonder, "Who cares about Ed Wood?" I must stress how his achievement of self-acceptance had never led to him being hailed as a genius. Ed Wood is still seen as an artistic loser, one of the worst film directors of all time. Yet, as shown in the scenes of the making of Plan 9 from Outer Space, he fought his superiors to the very end so that he could make what he wanted to make. Even more perplexing was how much his cast and crew believed in him. Maybe everyone knew it was crap, and they still wanted Ed Wood to win. I wanted Wood to win too. Clearly, Burton loved his fair share of B-movies, even framing the story as if it were an Ed Wood movie. As a fan work, as a biopic, and as a drama with stylistic, deadpan touches, Ed Wood is a winner.

I got such a ass whooping for this flick. I decided to rewatch it as an adult to see if I enjoyed it more now than as a kid in 1984. The answer is no
