(nl) wrote: Necromentia (Pearry Reginald Teo, 2009)Okay, so, yeah, let's get this out of the way first: it's pretty obvious that Pearry Reginald Teo is a big, big fan of Clive Barker's. That is not limited to this film; if you read the IMDB descriptions of his earlier shorts, there's a lot of this sort of thing going on. (In fact, it would seem to me based on the description that this may be a feature-length reworking of his first short, "Liberata Me".) And if you're going to look at this and say "oh, he's just ripping off 'The Book of Blood' and 'The Hellbound Heart'", this is not the movie for you. Think of it this way: there are only thirty-six plots. (Absurd reductionists can point to the fact that all thirty-six are outgrowths of the original three: man vs. self, man vs. man, man vs. nature.) Nothing is truly original. Think of this less as rip-off and more as homage.The story: Hagen (The Last Man's Santiago Craig) is a little bit of a nutcase. He's obsessed with his dead girlfriend Elizabeth (Zelieann Rivera, who was the second assistant director on that same film), who promised that, if she ever died, she would come back to him. As such, he has kept her around, and tries to stave off putrefaction with regular bathings, keeping the place cold, you know the drill if you've ever tried to store a body, right? In any case, Hagen is approached by Travis (Redemption's Chad Grimes), who offers him a deal: Travis knows how to get Hagen into the corridors of Hell, where Elizabeth's soul is held by a demon named Morbius (Teo regular Layton Matthews). What does Travis get out of the deal? Well, he has an autistic brother (Smokin' Aces' Zach Cumer) who he thinks is suicidal, but who is actually under the influence of a demon of his own, Mr. Skinny (Red 71's Nathan Ginn)...I'm only scratching the tip of the iceberg here. There's a lot going on in this flick (and while many synopses have given away a great deal more about the plot, including who Morbius is and how Hagen and Travis are related behind the scenes, I'll let you find those things out for yourself), and if you're not paying attention throughout, you're probably going to lose your way. In fact, that's pretty much a given if you miss details of certain key scenes. Make sure you have a big enough drink stash by the easy chair before you start the movie. Getting up and going to the kitchen will have you scratching your head and saying "what the hell?" when you get back. A lot of people think that ruins a movie, it seems, judging by a number of comments I've read about this flick. Me, I consider it a strength; a lot of thought went into the script here, and Teo and co-writer Stephanie Joyce did as much to keep all the threads tangled as they possibly could. But if you think about the film, they all make sense.While I'm certainly not going to place Necromentia on the level of classics like Hellraiser or The Evil Dead on a technical level, as far as the story and its presentation go, I think Pearry Teo is a visionary with a great deal to say about life and what follows it. He may not have been as clear as is necessary to gain the movie the wide cult audience it richly deserves, but I'm hoping that as time goes on, word of mouth will get more and more people watching this surprisingly good film. If you've got the mental capacity to grasp the complexities of, for example, the cult Japanese comedy EGG. and the attention span to keep a few critical details in mind as the film progresses, this is well worth your time if you're a horror fan. ** 1/2
(kr) wrote: Although it won't win awards or end up on anyone's "Best Films" list, The Big Year is a 2000's style comedy with a surprising amount of heart and humour, considering it's genre and time period. It has a certain earnest drive that other films of the like lack, which is why I enjoy watching it whenever it's on TV or Netflix. A guilty pleasure for some, blase for others, this film is the equivalent of a child's drawing. It's not that good, but it has certain elements which are enjoyable and you get a funny warm feeling when looking at it.
(gb) wrote: Funny at times. The romance, side tracked the whole film. Ajay Devgan and Arshad Warsi were really good.
(de) wrote: A perfectly knit storyline with the right combo of fine acting displayed by Farhan Akhtar, Konkona Sen Sharma and the rest. The movie pampers the reality and humanness of the stars without compromising on the glitter and glamor. An ideal movie to watch on any laid back day.
(ca) wrote: Paul Thomas Anderson considers this movie his masterpiece. and it's a perfect film. it follows several stories of several characters throughout one day and the various ways that characters interact and collide. the acting, directing, writing, cinematography, score, and soundtrack are all brilliant. it gets called overlong, but that's a stupid statement. it never drags and is never boring. perfect pacing for a movie over three hours long. emotions run high in this one and it had me tearing up. great film in every way!10/10
(de) wrote: Sorry Bruce but this one sucked...just plain awful and no Bruce Comedy either... only interesting part was a certain aspects uncanny resemblance to the Matrix, whats weirder is that this came out 11 years prior
(ca) wrote: Pure science-fiction movie, a classic sci-fi from the 80's, but compaired to other major blockbuster films like Terminator (1984), or Predator (1987), this one locks small. But the special effects are outrageously well made, they are definitly some of the best effects of the 80's. There's a clever concept, but the movie jumps right at you and doesn't really give you time to get a feeling of what's going on, but you'll later understand. I can get a little long, but overall, it's cool. Recommended !!

(gb) wrote: For anyone who reads the book before or after seeing this movie you may become disappointed with the ending. But considering the time in which it was released, going with the real ending might have been a bit too dark. Still, a very nice film. Solid character development, largely stays true to the original. I remember watching this several times when I was younger. A good film to watch.
(kr) wrote: Not sure where the critics got confused here (they often do). Dogma is a cult classic and one of if not the greatest religious satire film of all time, successfully managing to present a hilarious, well casted and balanced critique of organized religion that is both edgy but not intentionally offensive for the open minded. A must watch.
(kr) wrote: For a bizarre film, it was good. Independent looking, yet with crazy commercial cliches, it is a movie you can watch but may be not something you would be proud of having seen. Easily avoidable, this movie was not so much of a waste of time but a waste of a movie.
(us) wrote: Meryl Streep definitely deserved an Oscar nod for this movie (if not in this humble reviewers opinion the win). If you have any love of fashion you must see this movie. If you have any love of brilliant acting you must see this movie.
