Michael H (gb) wrote: A movie that acts like its a found footage parody. But there is one problem, THERE IS BARELY ANY FOUND FOOTAGE! Supernatural Activity doesn't have much "Found Footage" instead of having mostly shot footage. The movie is about a ghost hunting show where in the season finale a bunch of people who try to use fake effects and techniques are found fighting real life demons. This mostly is a parody of blair witch and The Last Exorcism. The acting sometimes can be very wooden like at the end credits scenes. Is the movie funny? Sometimes but overall no, these low budget movies should at least have something to parody that is funny but no, they are flat on idea's and they run out of steam when they try to come up with some. The movie is not worth it.54/100 C

In Paris Derek has a one night stand with a woman that alters his life for the worse. I don't know how long it will take you to figure out the affliction that Derek suffers from but for me it was around the 30 minute mark. I was surprised to read that This terrifying horror thriller follows two best friends who set out on the trip of a lifetime around the world. Their journey, documented every step of the way, soon takes a dark and unexpected turn after an encounter with a beautiful woman in Paris leaves one of them mysteriously afflicted. I was surprised to read that this film was a Winner: Best Picture (Horror), Best Screenplay (Horror), Best Director (Horror) at Fantastic Fest. Good effort on the part of the cast and crew! Making a film IS difficult, a challenge but when you get to show your final product during film festivals it must be quite a thrill. I foresee this one appearing on Netflix in the near future, for now I rented it from Redbox. Enjoy and safe travels *diabolical laughter ensues*!

Charles James I (mx) wrote: Pixies reunite and sell out. Thank Zeus.It becomes evident by the end of this tour, that the Pixies did the right thing back in the early 90s to split up. I was hoping the direction of the film was headed more towards history, but it was more or less a reality television program of the tour. They all made millions of dollars, and reveled in their aftershock-style stardom, that is almost unreal. You read it on their faces as the shock settles into their brains. Almost completely unaware of how influential they were on the world, and how they stood on the stage like GODS, reincarnated. It was as if they had no realization whatsoever of their importance to music, as if they had no recollection of ever making those albums long ago, or on top of that, HOW. They were clearly harnessing something from a higher plane, channeling through massive amounts of drugs and youthful angst. It becomes clear, they made something so great, it was even outside of their own comprehension. Kim Deal chainsmokes cigarettes and drinks non-alcoholic beer, struggling with sobriety and depression. Frank struts around with the same thought many others have, that he IS the Pixies... also sober. They both criticize, quite harshly, their bandmate David for taking Valium on tour, which I thought was a hypocritical move on their parts. And who cares anyway? Rock and roll man. It is quite awkward to see them all performing these songs that they wrote completely inebriated, and doing it dead sober. The awkwardness overflows into the backstage banter, which is unnatural and forced. How could a band full of people that don't even like each other, create such raw and inspiring music together? It blows my mind.As far as rockumentaries go, loudQUIETloud is subpar. More suitable and enjoyable for hardcore Pixies fans and sycophants.

Jon T (jp) wrote: Aside from the controversial rock musical JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, another one of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber's biggest staples on Broadway was this biographical musical about the First Lady of Argentina. It's not a particularly flattering portrayal of the character, either. In fact it's a rather controversial one, which is understandable considering that some could see her actions as manipulative and self-serving while others still see her as an influential figure in Argentina. Arguably the real star of this film version, however, is not necessarily Madonna as the title character (although she DOES do an excellent job), but rather Antonio Banderas, who gives both the best performance and arguably makes the movie worth my highest rating. As the film's narrator Che (who takes a very negative side with Evita from the get go), Banderas sings with robust energy and charisma, bringing a genuinely likable presence to an otherwise grim and heavy movie. Any scene where he unexpectedly pops up is a delight. Even if you may find the story difficult to follow at times (the film is shot intentionally as a music video with lots of quick cuts showing imagery that can be jarring at times), Bandera's performance and Lloyd Webber's legendary score is what makes EVITA. The music may seem schizophrenic to some viewers, though, because, like the film's MTV style, the score bounces back and forth from lilting Latin chorals to Spanish waltzes and, perhaps most incongruously, rock and roll. But all this is Webber's style of writing, for EVITA is, after all, a rock opera. Musicals like this are very rare to find today, and if you're a fan of such material, EVITA could well worth be checking out.
Luciano d (jp) wrote: I respectfully submit that this film should be vacated and remanded. The basic idea may seem promising, but the filmmakers did not play with it enough. There is a scene where Justice Snow refuses to pick up a phone call and when Chief Justice asks "How can you let it ring?" Snow answers, "The phone has no Constitutional right to be picked up." I was sure that the reply would be: "But the callers have right for Due Process, don't they? The Due Process with a ringing phone would be to pick it up!" I was wrong. Chief Justice could not produce any counter-argument. Justice Snow's arguments are impenetrable to anybody save for Justice Loomis. Justice Loomis' prudish but incredibly flowery opinions simply cannot be shaken in this film, no matter how defectively they are formulated. She keeps going on and on about "Moral Standards" and "Decency! and yet she is unable to give any logical arguments to support her extremist positions (e.g. she is quite open to censorship). If only this film was written as an intellectual battle between two great minds! It surely would have been an extraordinary achievement. However, what we are presented with here is a series of fatuous personal quarrels.
Brandon K (ru) wrote: It may not be the greatest musical ever made or Scorsese's best film. But it is still worth seeing and has very good musical sequences such as Happy Endings and of course the title song. Scorsese really tried to make this film a homage to the classic musical era (I.E. Singin' in the Rain, The Band Wagon, A Star is Born) and it shows with Liza Minnelli in it (who is the daughter of Judy Garland). Check this film out, it is a huge departure from Scorsese's gritty style of film making.
