Eric R (us) wrote: An American Gothic tale about a young boy whom copes with his rural life in the 1950s. Its a coming of age story to a degree which is rooted deeply in symbolism. Throughout the film our young protagonist is confronted by mortality. Its a beautifully shot film, and the rural setting is perfect for this narcissistic tale. The swaying corn fields and deep blue skies really help set the mood, reminding me quite a bit of Malick's Days of Heaven. Philip Ridley is making a statement about morality and honestly I need multiple viewings to grasp everything he was trying to say. It is film high in narcissism, as almost every character is selfish and refuses to see anything outside of their frame of reference. Highly recommended for any fans of Lynch.

Shane S (ca) wrote: OK, when I made my first review ("it makes bad movies look good"), I had watched about 10 minutes of the film (including Yahoo wowing all of Tasmania with his invention of common time). Those 10 minutes are bad, but they're slightly amusing. I mean, there are some subtle nuances with the whole "one large Australian injoke" thing (especially the subversion of "all idiots come from Down Under") and I did like seeing Yahoo wash dishes in the same tub he took a bath in (mainly because I've heard family tales very close to that observation). However, even with those ten minutes, you get the shoddily-implemented anachronistic marriage of Monty Python and Gallagher, the gaping funding flaws of the film (the film has a noticeable patchwork quality to it - that's not good), and piss-poor character development (dumb but well-intentioned Australians, jerk-ass rich people from Europe/Britain, Yahoo as the lovable oaf who always says what's on his mind) that I always expect from a Serious film.But this go-around, I watched the entire thing. God, it was worse than I remembered it. There is a reason why Yahoo Serious is either synonymous with "'80s Carrot Top" or the hackneyed fascination with Australian "culture" we had back in the '80s. Even though Mr. Greg Pead (which sounds cooler than Yahoo Serious, BTW) claimed that this film was full of Australian in-jokes (therefore limiting its commercial appears), it's glaringly obvious that the film was tailor-made for international success. Whatever cultural jokes there are are either repetitive background jokes that aren't funny even in context (oh look, the Tasmanians grow apples - look at Yahoo eat apples IN EVERY SCENE OF THE FILM) or that corny take on the mass-energy equivalence (dumbspeak: e=mc squared) by having Yahoo discover his big scientific breakthrough by splitting a beer atom so he can add carbonation to it (despite having bubbles in the bubble-less beer - you fail brewing forever). It's nothing too Australo-centric that Americans don't normally get (like Hey Hey, It's Saturday). It even does this with the soundtrack - I swear I've heard all the songs on the radio (even "Great Southern Land"). Not on Triple J's online broadcast - I mean here.So, my biggest gripe with the film is not that Yahoo wanted to make a chimera of many film genres (cartoon, biopic, historical epic, musical, Australian New Wave, documentary, parody), but rather that he can't efficiently mix them together. The whole film, rather than coming across as an auteur's first steps towards his masterstroke, is more like an exercise in self-indulgence. The film is muddled so much that, when combined with Yahoo's promise of an overarching theme in his "Young Einstein"-era interviews, it makes the whole thing come across as accidentally pretentious. There's no air of humility in it. Everything feels calculated and/or "so important" - even mindless scenes of Yahoo roaming the desert to the sounds of Icehouse have an air of importance to them (because he's engaged in "the natural wonders" of his homeland). People say that "The Tree of Life" is a muddled pretentious mess? At least it conforms to Malick's basic style. And at least it feels like it was made in one go rather than feeling patchwork. This seriously makes "The Tree of Life," with all of its weightless Jessica Chastains and merciful dinosaurs and general indulgence (indulgence that works, like Fellini), look humble. Then again, it's not trying to deliver a million messages about pacifism, world peace, and ecological conservation while trying to keep the kiddies entertained with goofy little out-of-place sound effects.And my other big gripe with the film is that it doesn't know when to shut up. Much like "The Magic Voyage" and all of those films Internet lolcow Doug Walker really loves to hate, "Young Einstein" has a problem with letting silence add to the atmosphere in that there's never a silent part. Nobody can walk without stepping on a bug, with which an overamplified stomp and squish are heard. Nobody can string together a contraption (or hell, make a primitive musical instrument that should be deadly for anybody to play) without it making sounds (especially Tesla coil/Van de Graaff generator electrical buzzing). If anything, it's what if somebody decided to watch an episode of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, misunderstood why our heroes from the S'wallow Valley Mall use so many sound effects, and began to work from that misunderstanding. For your information, Tim and Eric use sound effects as a way to make things grosser and more ridiculous than what they appear - it goes well with anti-comedy. And they don't use them all the time. Yahoo, instead, keeps his foley track so busy that it's like looking at the drum parts for "Starless" and "Moby Dick" at the same time - he uses sound effects to give off the impression that the film is funnier than what it appears to be. It has the same purpose as the laugh track on "The Big Bang Theory" - to fool the audience into thinking they're getting a good product.Then again, what do you expect from the man who wrote a movie about a guy trying to stop a hatchery from placing nicotine in eggs (thinly, thinly veiled "satire" on the tobacco industry, may I add?) while trying to see whether or not one of his hubcaps is an alien spacecraft? My answer: at least something Wiseau-esque. This is just a failure. An embarrassing failure.And I thought "Reckless Kelly" was a stain upon society. Now I'm glad that movie even exists. At least the Christian Cowboy made me chuckle.

Joe J (au) wrote: Elvis (Scott Peat) and Tweeter (Marissa Merrill) are trying to avoid the hordes of zombies that have overtaken the world. They travel to an isolated island in hopes of avoiding the zombies (known as "walkers"), but instead come into contact with a gang of ruthless rebels who've built a community there, and as long as they're useful, Elvis and Tweeter could stick around, while the whole island slowly becomes one walker paradise.This reminds me of the game Dead Island, but it's still a zombie movie, and one that wasn't as bad as others. It takes a very Romero-style approach to the zombies, making them more of a background character, showing us that the worst kind of evil in a post-apocalyptic world isn't the undead - it's the humans. The acting wasn't the best, but it delivered a lot of action, scares, and surprisingly decent effects for a low-budget film.
