A Tale Of Two Sisters
A Tale Of Two Sisters The girl under the sink was the creepiest thing I've ever seen. Like a gazillion times more scary than Sadako in Ringu.

Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen
Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen This movie felt a lot like Spider-Man 3. Too much shit going on in too little time.

And it's a little worse.

The Happening
The Happening M. Night mentioned that he set out to make a B-Grade 'horror' movie.

With that in mind, I watched it and I could not stop giggling at how true his statement was. It wasn't made in defence because it bombed... he really meant it. The shots, the acting, the trite and idiotic dialogue... Especially the shots. He just wanted to have fun with this movie. The only difference between this and an actual B-Grade movie is the budget and his name on it.

The Forgotten What was the mystery movie in 1998?

A Scanner Darkly
A Scanner Darkly I liked this movie.

I tried reading the book, but got lost within 10 pages. I managed about halfway through the first scene in the book. There was just too much science babble.

Capote
Capote I love this movie.

The other version of Truman Capote's movie had Truman making out with Perry Smith. And Truman was played by the same short guy from The Mist.

Enough said.

Reincarnation
Reincarnation I saw this movie in the theatres (because I live in Singapore) and didn't expect much because there were too many Japanese/Korean horror movies going on and I was sick of it... but the story and twist at the end was AMAZING. Didn't do too well in the scare department (other than the toy you mentioned) but I always love a good story.

9/10 for this one.

Final Destination 3 The fan through the head was awesome.

Saw IV
Saw IV Once the Saw series ends for good, everything will probably start to piece together like one ginormous puzzle and Jigsaw will be the best villian the world has ever seen.

X-Men: The Last Stand
X-Men: The Last Stand Someone on youtube or somewhere else pointed out that Psylocke was listed in the credits. I haven't seen the credits since I last watched the movie, and I couldn't care less.

True, there were a little too many mutants, but it kinda makes the movie and subplots interesting, like how Rogue's decision to go for the cure shows how some people are so desperate to be 'normal' and how it affects Bobby Drake. Multiple Man was there to distract the guards during that ambush. Angel's character was overhyped, but it did serve a purpose... proving his dad wrong, I suppose. While these may seem like small non-key events, during a movie screening, it does kinda make you go... SEE TOLD YA.

I think you were just thinking that these characters didn't get enough screentime, so you felt that there were too many mutants. It's supposed to be an all out war, so it has to feel epic and huge.

Don't worry, you'll get to see Gambit in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The writers probably didn't know how to fit a fighting card tossing cajun in the movie, so they scrapped him.

By the way, when Bobby Drake turned into ice, I kinda screamed in excitement.

The Mist
The Mist It just doesn't let up. It doesn't let you breathe for one second. I was highly entertained by this movie. I did not see the ending coming AT ALL and it was depressing, but it was amazingly shot. A bad director could have fucked that scene up.

1408 still wins for the fright and mind-fuck factor though. Looks like King adaptations are starting to get better.

Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem
Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem Yeah, it was pretty boring to me. Not to mention the fight scenes were very very jumpy, like almost all fight scenes in action movies.

Why can't they shoot scenes Matrix style, which uses minimal movement yet effective angles?
Posted by Rik on July 31, 2008
1408
1408 The fright factor in this movie definitely worked. If there was a Hell, 1408 would be it. Just a question... what's Cusack's look in the poster?

Batman Returns Also, gotta remember that Catwoman didn't die.

Ghost Rider
Ghost Rider I thought the battle scenes were too simple and short. Hell-flaming the chain and creating a hellflame tornado? Too easy. There were no proper battle scenes and yes, Blackheart didn't look like Blackheart AT ALL. Blackheart is supposed to be like 11 feet tall and look all spiky and badass. The film version looked like he just stepped out of a boyband video.

Also, what's up with the music when they were riding across the desert? Too much of a redneck-fest to me. It felt like The Good, The Bad and The Ugly with Satan involved... only suckier.

Daredevil
Daredevil Strangely enough, Jon Favreau had the best character.

And yes, they should make a Deadpool movie. He is such a character. Deadpool and Cable is my favourite superhero tag team ever.

Daredevil
Daredevil I actually loved this movie, and you're right, Colin Farrell is awesome. He is my newest favourite actor.l

Superman Returns
Superman Returns I never ever liked Superman, EVER. But I love this movie. The sequence where Superman saves everyone from that doomed plane was awesome.

Superman Returns
Superman Returns Son of Cyclops?

He's Cable?! lol

X-Men
X-Men You're right to say it's not fair to expect the writers to condense all that plot into a movie, but at least keep the uniforms blue and yellow!

:P

Batman Returns
Batman Returns I totally agree with this review, although Frank Miller's Batman: The Dark Knight Returns apparently 'brought Batman back to his dark roots'. So it's really up to preference. Although I still feel that Nolan tried to hard to make it too dark. I wonder how Robin will look like when he enters Nolan's Batman. He can't possibly wear red, yellow and green right?

I still think the best Joker is from Batman: Dead End. Although he didn't get enough screentime, he looks twistedly happy and psychoic at the same time. Nolan's Joker is too depressive and psychotic. There's a reason why Joker wears purple and has green hair... to make him into a campy character.

The Dark Knight
The Dark Knight Call me crazy, but I thougt Val Kilmer made a great Batman.

The Last Winter
The Last Winter Honestly, I still don't get the ending, and probably that's what Fessenden wanted.

We need to get a good discussion going on here about this movie.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret Of The Ooze
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret Of The Ooze SUPER SHREDDER!!

Batman & Robin
Batman & Robin Look at that poster.

Batman smiling? I'm surprised they didn't include the Batphone for this movie.

Godzilla
Godzilla I'm still bummed that this Godzilla is not the size it's supposed to be (according to the poster with its foot, not the Japanese version).

Another thing that bugs me is that this Godzilla has flammable breath as apposed to atomic 'breath'. I guess they're just trying to make it realistic. Well, nothing more realistic than a 40 storey tall lizard running around.

All in all, I found it pretty entertaining.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles One of the best films of my youth.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie The zords were horrible and amazingly undersized.

Althought I thought the morphing and the new padded suits were great.

Hellboy
Hellboy I can't believe this is the same guy who did Pan's Labyrinth.
Posted by Rik on July 03, 2008
The Incredible Hulk
The Incredible Hulk Well, the only reason I actually went out to watch this movie was because Lou Ferrigno was voicing Hulk.

That HULK SMASH line? That's all him, baby.

The Guyver I can't find this movie, but part 2 is amazing. Someone review it please!

Reign Of Fire Urm... yeah it was a waste of good cinema funds.

Mortal Kombat: Annihilation
Mortal Kombat: Annihilation Cyrax was totally made of plastic and Mileena (a pivotal character in the original storyline) had a 3 minute screentime.

I honestly found it to be good... for a B grade movie. The soundtrack was totally awesome, though.

Mortal Kombat
Mortal Kombat I loved this movie. The only disappointing aspect was the lack of blood drenched fatalities... which was the main highlight of the game anyways.

But the friendship part was kinda cool (where Johnny Cage throws an autographed photo of himself after beating Scorpion).

The Brave One
The Brave One I watched this by myself at the theaters, because none of my friends wanted to.

Easily one of the best movies of 2007 and highly underrated.
Posted by Rik on June 05, 2008
The Eye
The Eye The original was filmed entirely in Thai. I've seen the original and it kicks ass compared to this crap.

Totally 0/10.

Silent Hill
Silent Hill I actually found this story quite enjoyable. The part where Pyramidhead rips the skin off the woman was one of the coolest shit I've seen in awhile.

Children Of The Corn
Children Of The Corn Children Of The Corn was amazingly bad. I never want to watch it ever again.

Spider-Man 3
Spider-Man 3 One of the first things I thought of when I walked out of the theater was... "They should just have fucking ended the movie at the bell tower. That's alot more effective."
Posted by Rik on September 22, 2007
Spider-Man 3
Spider-Man 3 This was like a musical rendition of Spider-Man. Did some Bollywood director do this? Venom was absolutely disappointing. No long tongue, no saliva dripping, AND HIS WEB WAS BLACK!! Was it even webbing?? They should have gotten Dolph Lundgren to be Brock. He'd be soooo much better... even though alot older. I can visualise Dolph as Brock... AND Venom.
Posted by Rik on September 22, 2007
Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man 2 The best installment yet.
Posted by Rik on September 22, 2007
Spider-Man
Spider-Man I like this movie. But I definitely oppose Tobey Maguire being Peter Parker. I don't think he can pull it off. Peter Parker is not THAT geeky.

Underworld
Underworld Oh yeah... that reflection thing. Never thought of that. hahaha.

Batman: Dead End
Batman: Dead End Another thing... I loved the part where he jumped from the roof and landed in a crouch. Then slowly got up with his cape dragging on the floor. One of the best scenes in ANY movie EVER.
Posted by Rik on September 22, 2007
Batman: Dead End
Batman: Dead End The Joker was amazing. The BEST Joker EVER. Looked like he just popped out of the animated series, only more evil. The best Batman I've ever seen too. Not too much armor. Very Adam West-esque. 10/10. Btw the Predators looked awesome too.

Batman
Batman I love the parade at the end. Was the Joker playing Prince over the PA?

Resident Evil: Apocalypse
Resident Evil: Apocalypse Surprisingly, I preferred this instead of the first. I find that it had alot of similarities to the Resident Evil: Nemesis game installment. The fact that you couldn't kill Nemesis until near the end of the game (you could only run away from him, which was what Alice did). I have already embraced the fact that Resident Evil is more sci-fi/action than zombie movie, so I'm willing to let that go. The action sequences were really nice. 6/10
