(ca) wrote: Trying to escape the pain of his life in the West, Charles (Philippe Torreton) travels from France to Kazakhstan, hoping to lose himself in the barren deserts of central Asia. Such is the influence of Western values that even in such a remote place, it??s not easy to escape from the world. He finds some help along the way with other people who live on the land and who are more in touch with a different, alternate way of living. One of them is Shakuni, a nomad who retains memories of the land's troubled past as well as preserving ancient words and wisdom as the tools of his trade. The other is Ulzhan a young girl who teaches French in a remote village, but even they are finding their way of life increasingly unsustainable in the modern world. The political issues are certainly prominent, but somewhat vague and undefined. The main drive of the story is in the relationships between the characters, but like the background hinted at for Charles, none of them are particularly deep or original (even the wonderful Shakuni is a character straight out of the Mahabarata). Beautifully made, attractively photographed and superbly crafted however, Ulzhan provides plenty of exoticism, mysticism, cultural and lifestyle issues and an underlying political undercurrent, with stunning vistas and issues of personal conflict to enthral international cinema-goers.

(au) wrote: It's not really a movie about fleeting success. It's about how incredibly doomed Troy Duffy was (and probably still is). He's drunk on his own Kool-Aid, a situation cemented by the fact that his script got noticed by a Hollywood bigwig. Once he's "discovered," he starts filming himself and his posse, often to his own detriment. From the very beginning, his superlative comments foretell trouble, and, as we see more of his "process," we realize that he has carefully guarded himself from any sort of negative feedback. In short, he builds up a myth of his own genius, and his arrogant attitude drives away all possibility of success. His movie and music deals and his relationships with his colleagues are slow-motion car wrecks; despite all this, his movie was good enough to gain a strong following in home video sales after major theater release became impossible. But because of a poor contract, he made nothing from even that popularity. Overall, a real-life cautionary tale about ego.

Tenenbaums left me cold, Fantastic Mr Fox has terrific animation but..., and I only saw a section of The Darjeeling Limited, but wasn't enthralled.Rushmore started my conversion to the Church of Wes Anderson: it's terrific. Hugely funny with some pretty unlikeable characters, the jokes come thick, fast and dark. Jason Schwartzman and Bill Murray are fabulous, with terrific support from Olivia Williams and Brian Cox. The writing is excellent and the trademarks of Anderson's other films are mostly already there in this incredibly assured early film.

The box art had me sold, and unlike Jack Frost, this one had a bit more to offer. A very original twist on a zombie-esk slasher film that was very well worth the watch.

(de) wrote: You know there are two types of Peter Jackson fans, ones that prefer his new movies and the ones that prefer his older work. I much prefer his first five films, to anything else he has done. I don't hate his new stuff but I just don't see where all the praise is coming from? Maybe it's just me, well no, I know there's others out there like me. Out of Jackson first five films, I only dislike one of them but even that one had a great scene. Peter Jackson was really striving to become a major filmmaker, well atleast a very passionate one. Brain Dead/Dead Alive is his 3rd feature and in my opinion, by far his best film to date. Jackson made this film on very tiny budget, around 2 million dollars. He set out to make the bloodiest, most over the top movie ever filmed. I've seen Dead Alive over twenties times and I'm pretty sure he succeeded, incase your didn't know, Dead Alive holds the world record for the most blood used on a movie production. And it's not CGI blood either, actually over 10,000 gallons of blood were used in the final scene alone. That's alot of gore and splatter. I've seen alot cult classics and bloodbath scenes and nothing really comes close to Dead Alive. Though, it's been brought to my attention that a new more recent movie beat it's blood count, I search the internet and can't seem to get this comfirmed? maybe it's just a rumor? who knows? anyways, I seriously doubt it's more entertaining than the movie which I'm reviewing. Dead Alive has everything a gorehound/zombie freak could want or need. I still remember the first thought I had after seeing this, what the hell did I just watch? I had to see it again to make sure. There's so many shocking and laugh out loud moments here, this movie had no limits on it's humor. I almost questioned Jackson genius here, but that was only because it was so insane, I would have never thought of some the stuff contain within this flick. Actually when this film was released in theaters in New Zealand, people were handed a barf bag to go with their movie ticket lol. Dead Alive did set the standard in many ways for future splatterfest movies and none have ever succeeded it. The story of Dead Alive is kinda simple, it's a story about guy named Lionel, who lives at home with his mother. His mother is very controlling and obsessive but Lionel loves her more than anything. Well, until one day he meets a girl named Paquita (it's pronounced Pa-keet-tah) They both fall for each other rather quickly, and one day they plan to take a trip to the local zoo. Lionel's mother is suspicious of her son and follows him there. While watching her son interact with his new love, Lionel's mother is biten by a Samatran Rat Monkey (These don't exists I ensure you, they come from Skull Island. Skull Island doesn't exists either unless you believe in King Kong) Lionel comes home to find out his mother is ill and was bitten. Lionel tries to take care of his mother the best he can but it seems pointless. Eventually Lionel's mother dies.... but not for long, she becomes one of the undead and tries to eat everything made of flesh, that she can get her hands on. This is a very chaotic situation for our hero Lionel, he loves his mother even after she turned into Zombie. He tries his best to take care of her and keep her away from others, it's kinda hard to do this when she's even tring to eat him. Finally Lionel's mom bites someone else and then the virus spreads like wildfire. Lionel does his best to keep this epidemic under wraps and does a pretty good job until his uncle comes along. How this story unfolds is one the most outrageous things I've ever seen. I wouldn't call this the most over the top movie of all-time, for nothing. Dead Alive contains my favorite bloodbath scene ever, all I'm gonna say is it involves a party full of zombies and good ol' lawnmower. I consider Dead Alive my 2nd favorite zombie movie and my favorite zombie comedy. Any fan of George Romero zombie movies, Shaun of The Dead, Evil Dead Triology, Return of The Living Dead, or even Demons, should enjoy the hell out of this! I highly recommend this and encourage you to watch it has soon as possible. Leave me some feedback on what you thought. Oh, you'll have to buy your own barf bag haha.
