Aaron C (au) wrote: A bleak insight into the high-stress, low-self-control industry of the big global advertising rat-race, shown as driven by cocaine. The visuals are evocative and the segmented timelines tight, but I just could not agree with a lot of the stuff portrayed. As the movie is essentially a downer, about being too high. The last segment was an interesting plot twist-untwist though.
Franklin S (au) wrote: One of the few films Uwe Boll didn't base on a video game, Heart of America is also his most unwatchable. Here is a movie that refuses to have characters realistic or likable, which spends a good amount of time setting up various story arcs that each end with someone's tragic death, but it is handled with little grace and no concern for how blind the movie is in its treatment of its subject matter. While Elephant was also guilty of misusing its setting to tell a story with no insight, Heart of America really amps up the style, with plenty of metal and techno music to make everything seem extreme and cool. And then there's the recounting by a former student of his wildest adventure involving a mildly retarded girl that might just be the most reprehensible and irresponsible piece of filmmaking ever released. And when the movie gets around to a "twist" - my God, a movie about school shootings has a twist! - the entire endeavor just leaves you queasy, and not in a way that's intended.

Anna B (ca) wrote: Alright, that Vivian Leigh bait-and-switch is historically great storytelling, and filmmaking. There's no question. The rest of the movie, though? It's pretty good. Everything I read says that Hitch was obsessed with keeping the final twist a secret, but I get the sense that he was more concerned with making it seem like Leigh is the protagonist so as to heighten the impact of that shower scene. Of course it works, like gangbusters (I can only imagine the incredible shock one would have received watching this thing blind), but he seems to lose a little interest after that, and it becomes something a little more conventional, and even sometimes bad, specifically with the psychiatrist who will simply not shut the fuck up.
Michael M (br) wrote: I'm a huge fan of the old school slashers, but Chucky's tenure was one that slipped past me until very recently. A great shame, since it is (at least in his first entry) one of the best. Jason is a shark, Freddy's a trickster, but Chucky is just a straight up creep. It takes a lot to make a doll frightening, but somehow they are mostly successful here. There are moments in the film when someone will do something stupid (like throw Chucky across the room giving him time to escape) just for the sake of giving him a chance to come back, but these are thankfully few. There are some genuinely tense moments with a major creep factor. The choice to make the prime victim a child is also interesting; somewhat exploitative, but it's adds a greater sense of danger so it mostly works. In the end, Child's Play is great scary fun, and Chucky earns his status as a horror icon.
