In the year 1215, the rebel barons of England have forced their despised King John to put his royal seal on the Magna Carta, a seminal document that upheld the rights of free men. Yet within months of pledging himself to the great charter, the King reneged on his word and assembled a mercenary army on the south coast of England with the intention of bringing the barons and the country back under his tyrannical rule. Barring his way stood the mighty Rochester castle, a place that would become the symbol of the rebel's momentous struggle for justice and freedom.

(mx) wrote: This is a giant anachronistic ball of WTF?! You're lulled into a false sense of context with the costumes & sets - it appears as though we're in the past but then all of a sudden there's guns, rocket launchers, & motorbikes popping out of nowhere. ...There's even Steven Seagal's son - yes, /that/ Steven Seagal! - who's rocking this not-quite-a-mohawk, not-quite-a-pompadour quiff; he sorta reminds me of that main hunter guy from Critters, lol.Anyways, I found myself watching this purely because of Tak Sakaguchi, who I saw in Shinobi: Heart Under Blade, because he was pretty *hangs head in shame*. Is it wrong that I liked him showing quite a bit of leg every now and then? I figured after I saw it [his leg] the first time that there'd inevitably be a parliament of whores baring all, but surprisingly he was the sluttiest out of the lot, so good job Tak! hehThe story is...interesting. When you get over trying to figure out 'when the hell are we?' or 'what the hell is going on?!' you're taken on a mystical and magical journey full of lulz. By the sounds of it there's a good possibility this & Versus (which I've yet to see but it's on my list!) will both become trilogies, so that should take care of the open-ending of this film (which possibly breeds more questions than the overall WTF-ness of the rest of the movie).I sorta hope it still keeps the low-budget quality to it - the aesthetics of this movie are pretty neat to look at, especially when you lapse back into trying to figure out 'what the hell? No, seriously, WHAT THE HELL?' like: the little giggling girl who follows the charmed (or cursed?) coffin that Sexy Legs (my name for Tak's character, aka 'Grave') initially lugs around, the throbbingly phallic hilt of a special sword, were those supposed to be zombies?!, my-my those fight sequences seemed rather erotic, & when did Cloud from Final Fantasy 7 turn into a black man with a slight interest in bondage (when you see what he's packing you'll get what I mean)?All in all, this was a great B-grade popcorn, slight sci-fi/slight horror (I guess?), fantasy-comedy movie to waste the night!

(es) wrote: Rematching this film now, it reminded me how much I like Cybill Shepherd and made me want to go back and rewatch "Moonlighting." This is a light romantic fantasy that feels like an old Hollywood throwback type of story, involving Shepherd and her new husband Christopher "Shooter" McDonald just finding out their pregnant, except that McDonald unexpectedly dies, but when he goes to heaven he demands to be reincarnated to he can reunite with Shepherd. The film then picks up 20 years later with McDonald reincarnated as Robert Downey Jr. and fitting with Shepherd's daughter, Mary Stuart Masterson, but when he meets Shepherd, there is all sorts of romantic deja vu. Shepherd and Downey are both very winning in their lead roles, but Masterson is also worth mentioning as very likable as well. Also, the very underrated Ryan O'Neal used perfectly in the role of Shepherd's dead husband's best friend who quietly pines for Shepherd. This film is completely lacking any sort of edge or dark humor, but that's not what this film is about. It's an enjoyably unashamed romantic comedy that makes no presence of being anything more, completely achieving it's goals.

(mx) wrote: Director Peter Berg directs this blend of action and comedy in Hancock. Great performance from Will Smith but doesn't live up to some points of the film. I highly recommend watching this. B+.
(ru) wrote: A real mixed bag this. It looks wonderful and the setting is beautiful. Cornwell looked good. The artists in residence was also interesting. Emily Browning is an interesting choice as the lead but is given NOWT to do. Dan Steven is Matthew Crawley and Dominic Cooper ermmm well he was miscast. That jaunty hat was a joke.
