(de) wrote: The Kings of Summer was an enjoyable time killer and a well done coming of age story. I liked the majority of the film. The scenes which show the three kids messing around in the woods were a lot of fun. The stars' chemistry was also clearly there. I was weary about Moises Arias' character because he seemed too weird however, in all honesty he did make me laugh several times. My favorite character is definitely Patrick. He is an all around nice guy and did not deserve what came to him. Yes, I understand where Joe was coming from but he really just turned into a dick. If I was Patrick, I would not have forgiven Joe until I had received an apology. Love is definitely something that can come between friendship but I was really hoping this film would defer from the rest by not having the best friends split up and instead face a big challenge together. Like most movies, the big challenge that had to be overcome was friendship. This did show an impressive parallel between Joe and his father who he wanted so much not to become. Although this film had potential to be something even greater, what it is, is something special of its own. The comedy hits, the characters work, and the movie is one not to be forgotten.

This satire of Japanese politeness and xenophobia is well made but doesn't travel particularly well.
(nl) wrote: Awaken the Dead (Jeffrey McMichael Brookshire, 2007)Awaken the Dead is a movie with an interesting premise, a script that would have been mediocire given one or two more rewrites with a professional editor sitting in, and some of the worst execution you are likely to ever see in a movie unless you go hunting for the bottom of the barrel like I do. There's really very little to do here but shake your head sadly and wait for a (hopefully loose) remake, since Hollywood eventually remakes everything these days.Plot: Father Gideon (Almost Famous' Gary Kohn) is sent a message by an old employer asking him to go to their old meeting place and wait. When he does, he finds himself confronted by Mary (Chronicles of a Love Unfound's Lindsey Morris in her screen debut), who lives there, and who received a similar note telling him to wait"for what, neither is sure. The two of them are interrupted, first by a pair of door-to-door religioius proselytizers, then by a thug (Be Cool's Will Harris) who has a mysterious connection to Mary"but that is before the world goes insane. The inhabitants of the town, which was sprayed by a mysterious plane we see not long into the film, turn into zombies, etc. You know where to go from here. Stanley (Steampunk Samurai Biker Chick's Nate Witty), once of the Jehovah's Witnesses, pops back up on their doorstep with news of the outside world, and the three of them form an uneasy alliance aimed at figuring out what's going on"and where Jeremiah (The Last Bad Neighborhood's Michael Robert Nyman), Gideon's former employer, got off to instead of showing up at the house.I keep trying to come up with ways to make this pretty, and I just can't. You know from the second Gabriel and Mary (and aren't those names subtle?) are put together in that adversarial relationship that there's going to be a (badly-filmed) love scene. From the first time you see the two Asian schoolgirl zombies hanging around in the front yard while Grin's sitting in his car outside the house, you know where that scene is going. Etc. Characters suddenly appear out of (pretty much) nowhere and for no apparent reason, plot devices appear, shimmer briefly, and then fade into nothing, the actors seem as if they've been told to be as emotionaless as possible, and I think it was all filmed on a PXL-2000 that was (badly) jury-rigged to get some semblance of washed-out color. And yet underneath its bland, pale exterior it seems as if there was really something that could have come out of this, the brilliant fat kid stuck in the skinny wallflower's body. If only someone had figured out a way to feed this movie a few brownies. *

(br) wrote: Stupid and utter crap! Phil Tippett should stick to working on visual effects. The story and premise is idiotic and not even like the original film. All that this film has is nudity, violence, and bug splatter. Plus, I hate the fact that this film was direct to DVD and the camerawork was generic and stupid. Horrible, just horrible.
(ca) wrote: Yeah, a bit bent sexual-wise, but the focus is more on general eroticism and the female seducing power. The writing becomes a weird ritual, poetic-attempting bliss towards the end. Not many will like that closure if they preferred serious drama instead. Entertaining anyhow.
(br) wrote: This is an original film with some interesting characters. Christina Ricci is excellent in this movie. The rest of the cast also does a good job here. The script is original with some nice serious moments and a few funny ones.

(ca) wrote: The Ghosts of Mississippi was a powerful and moving motion picture. When a loved and hated civil rights leader, Medgar Evers is shot and killed by White Supremecist assassin Byron De La Beckwith (James Woods), the most difficult murder trial of all time becomes active. The first two trials in the 1960's end up with a hung jury leaving Beckwith free amongst society to shoot off his mouth and brag at local KKK meetings about killing Evers. Thirty years later, assistant DA Bobby DeLaughter takes up the case. Teaming up with Evers' widow Mearlie Evers (Whoopi Goldberg), they feel that they can finally bring down the vile and renowned White Supremecist Beckwith with an evenly divided jury consisting of eight blacks and four whites. While it seems that the odds are against them due to lack of evidence, witnesses and testimony, De Laughter vows to do everything in his power to bring justice to this re-opened case. All of the acting was superb, especially the acting brought forth by James Woods who plays Beckwith. He really has the backwoods white supremecist act down pat. Alec Baldwin as De Laughter brought a lot of powerful emotion and empathy to the screen as he struggles to bring justice to the case which threatens to tear apart his family and his relationship with his wife. A very realistic and lengthy film. A great portrayal of justice in the court. 4.0 starz.

(nl) wrote: Meh. Christopher Lee does an astounding job as Rasputin, and the film has the typical lush Hammer look to it (sets borrowed from a Dracula film). It starts off well, but you never get a sense of why we even remember the guy. Very little of the background history of the Russian revolution is referenced. Lee creates a powerful, charasmatic character, then nothing is done with him other that to rip off a few people and make a few others jealous. The movie also gives him damn-near supernatural powers, which I think was a mistake.

There were some good scenes but Audrey's cockney squealing got on my nerves a bit and whatshisface was such an unlikable character i just wanted to punch him in the neck.
