12 Monkeys (1995) [23 Aug 2003|10:49pm]

blessedpsycho
  • Title: 12 Monkeys
  • Genre: Sci-Fi / Horror / Drama / Psychological Thriller
  • Year: 1995
  • Director: Terry Gilliam
  • Main Stars: Bruce Willis, Madeline Stowe, Brad Pitt
  • Rating: R

  • Synopsis: Willis plays Cole turner, a convicted fellon in a future world that is condemened to living underground after a virus wiped out 6 billion people in 1996. Now, thirty years later, Cole has been recruited by several scientists to go back in time, and find out who spread the virus, and to try and get a sample of it so that they might be able to create a cure. However, when he gets there, a psychologist (Stowe) convinces him that he's delusional, and that this future world of his is all in his imagination. Then there is Pitt's character, the psychotic son of a high profile geneticist. Cole comes to think he is behind the virus, but starts to wonder if it really is just his imagination.

  • The Good: Cinematography. The way this film is shot is absolutely amazing. None of the scenes in the past or future interconnect, making you wonder, along with cole, if that future really exists.
  • The Bad: Nothing, really.
  • The Ugly: Cole's death. And the scene with the pimp in the trashy hotel? That one's pretty gruesome.
  • Score: 4&1/2 stars.

Dream for an Insomniac (1997) [23 Aug 2003|10:45pm]

blessedpsycho
  • Title: Dream for an Insomniac
  • Genre: Independent / Drama / Comedy / Chick Flick
  • Year: 1997
  • Director: Tiffanie Debartolo
  • Main Stars: Ione Skye, Mackenzie Astin, Jennifer Aniston, Michael Landes, Robert Kelker Kelly, Seymour Cassel
  • Rating: R

  • Synopsis: Skye plays Frankie, an insomniac who has fallen out of love. She searches for an impossible man - one with the eyes of Sinatra (her name-sake) and the soul of a poet. She hasn't slept a full night since she was 6, and doesn't plan on doing so any time soon. Along with her best friend Allison (Aniston), she plans on moving to L.A. to jump-start her acting career. She'll be leaving behind her beloved Uncle Leo (Cassel), and her closeted cousin Rob (Landes). Enter David Shrader (Astin), a struggling writer who applies for the job opening in Leo's Cafe, Cafe Blue Eyes (another Sinatra reference). Frankie falls in love instantly when she meets David, because of his blue eyes and his sharp wit, strong enough to match her own. Frankie has to open up to love, and make David see that she is the love of his life, and she only has one week to do it.

  • The Good: I loved the way in which the film was shot. The first 20 minutes or so are shot in all black and white. Then, as Frankie and David meet for the first time, the film transforms to color, starting with David's eyes (the eyes of Sinatra).
  • The Bad: The script is only so-so. There are a lot of Sinatra references, and this film could have done without all of them. Aniston's character could have been used more, and could have been less comical and still have been useful.
  • The Ugly: Nill.

  • Score: Although its not the greatest film ever, I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. It's a great romantic story. Though, Frankie is just a BIT of a stretch. These are all good actors in this film, but they weren't given much to work with. And you also think that Frankie's reasoning behind not sleeping is a just TOO simplistic and childish. And you wonder why she hasn't grown out of it by now. Still, it is an enjoyable movie. I'll give this one 3&1/2 stars.

Rules of Attraction, The (2002) [23 Aug 2003|10:44pm]

blessedpsycho
  • Title: Rules of Attraction, The
  • Genre: Independent / Drama / Book Adaptation
  • Year: 2002
  • Director: Roger Avary
  • Main Stars: James Van Der Beek, Shannyn Sossamon, Ian Somerhalder
  • Rating: R

  • Synopsis: Van Der Beek is Sean, a drugged out college student and drug dealer. A self-described 'emotional vampire', Sean is always on the prowl for the next girl to fuck. Enter Lauren (Sossamon), a disenchanted student with an constantly changing major. She pines for Victor, a guy she had a short fling with the previous semester, and hasn't heard from since. Then there's Paul (Somerhalder), a pragmatic who has his eye on Sean. Their lives interconnect, and each must face the harsh realities of life.

  • The Good: Nothing, really. The story-line is just 'ok'. Perhaps the only good part is the 'rewinding' that occurs throughout the film, as well as the split-screen shots when Sean and Lauren first meet.
  • The Bad: The acting is horrid. The plot is completely skewered from that of the novel it's based on.
  • The Ugly: The entire film.

  • Score: I really like this film, despite all its short-comings. But the fact of the matter is, the makers of this film were out of their minds. Though it claims to be based on the film, it was as if they took maybe 3 chapters, and burnt the rest. The situations portrayed in the film are only about 10 percent of the entire book. I give this movie 3 Stars's. Save yourself the rental fees, and read the book by Bret Easton Ellis. It's 100times better, and well worth the 8bucks you'll spend on it. Though, if you love trashy films, then this is a must-see. Other than that, don't bother.

They're unlike any family you've ever met!

    Gomez has been searching for his brother, Fester Addams, for years. Meeting someone who bares an uncanny resemblance to Fester, Mr. Tulley, the Addams's accountant, decides to use this man, in the guise of Fester, to extort tons of money from the unendingly rich Addams's.

  • The Good: I have a highly morbid sense of humor, so I find this movie really entertaining. I'm also a big fan of the original series, and this movie is a great tribute to it. It's a really fun film.
  • The Bad: Nothing at all. Very well-made.
  • The Ugly: Uncle Knicknack. 'Nuff said. ~shudders~

  • Score: I really love this movie. Good cinematography. Great acting. And the bit with Sally Jesse Raphael? That was classic! 5 Starss!

But, the Labyrinth isn't all that it seems. There are creatures there that will try to distract her from her quest, and the labyinth itself is very tricky.

  • The Good: The story is a great coming-of-age tale. The Escher-esque scene in the castle is very nicely done, as well as the ballroom scene.
  • The Bad: A bit too after-school special for most people.
  • The Ugly: Nothing.

  • Score: It's the MUPPETS! This is my second favorite movie of all time. Therefore, I must give it 5 Starss!

Natural Born Killers [19 Aug 2003|03:00am]

stand_in_line
Title : Natural Born Killers
Genre : Action,Drama,Suspense
Year : 1994
Director : Oliver Stone
Main Stars :Woody Harrelson,Juliette Lewis,Robert Downey Jr
Rating : R-Extreme violence,Shocking images,language and sexuality

Synopsis: Its about two young lovers,Mickey and Mallory who go on a huge spree,killing dozens of people along the way.It goes into a lot of explanation regarding Mallory's past and upbringing and the story of how they met.

The Good :This film is just overall,really well done.I like how it makes a strong reference to media influences on society(how they become famous for these killings,and everyone wants to be like them) and how all the bizarre,trippy scenes show how little control they have in some situations.And of course,Oliver Stone taking this film to its greatest potential with extreme creativity and amazing shots.The acting is well done to.Harrelson and Lewis do a great job at bringing out these characters.The ending was great to

The Bad : I think they could have focused a bit more on the murders and less on their sex lives.It also seems like Stone,in some parts,tried a little to hard with some of the effects.

The Ugly :Nothing particularly ugly about this film.I loved it

Score : ****

  • Genre: Horror / Mockumentary
  • Year: 1999
  • Director: Daniel Myrick & Eduardo Sanchez
  • Main Stars: Heather Donahue, Michael Williams, Joshua Leonard
  • Rating: R
  • Synopsis:
    From the cover: In Octobe of 1994, there student filmmakers disappeared in the woods near Burkittsville, Maryland while shooting a documentary . . . A year later their footage was found.

After doing some initial research in the town of Burkittsville, the three travel into the woods of the town formally known as Blair, in search of the legendary witch. They don't expect to find much, but their experiences in those woods lead them to believe otherwise.
  • The Good: The way in which the film is made does have you almost believing their story. I loved the directing. That was done SUPERBLY!
  • The Bad: Not the greatest script ever. And Heather's 'confession' or whatever is too damned sincere. Not that sincerity is a BAD thing, but the whole speech is kinda useless.
  • The Ugly: The eyes. 'Nuff said.
  • Score: I really like this film. But it's not something that I would watch more than once a year or so. If that. I'm gonna give this 3 Stars's.

Gattaca (1997) [16 Aug 2003|10:18pm]

blessedpsycho
  • Title: Gattaca
  • Genre: Sci-Fi / Thriller

  • Director: Andrew Niccol
  • Main Stars: Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman, Jude Law
  • Rating: PG-13
  • Synopsis: Hawke plays Vincent, an Invalid, or faith birth. In a world where genetic manipulation is the norm, people created in the natural way are thought of as being below average citizens.

But, a week before he is scheduled to leave on a space mission, he becomes the main suspect in his boss's murder. He must risk everything to clear his name, and keep his secret.
  • The Good: The story. The acting. What can I say? I'm a sucker for a good story and gerat acting. Then again, who isn't? The story flows smoothly, and all loose ends are tied up.
  • The Bad: Nothing.
  • The Ugly: Nothing.
  • Score: An excellent film. Very low on special effects, which actually helps the film. It could probably be compared to a sort of modern day "Tale of Two Cities", though that IS a bit of a stretch. I give this movie 5 Stars's!!

  • The Good: The effects scenes are really amazing. I've watched the scene's of Liloo's cloning more times than I've seen the movie itself! It's so amazing. Then there are the fight scenes. Those are so well coordinated. Especially Liloo's scene during the Diva's opera. Also, the Diva's opera. Sarah Brightman is a GOD! And even if she ISN'T credited with the song, it WAS her.
  • The Bad: The ending was too perfect, and a bit too lovey-dovey. Still, it did play out well.
  • The Ugly: The butt-ugly aliens that Oldman's characte hires to retrieve the stones. Those guys are OOGLEE!
  • Score: 5 Stars

  • Main Stars: Jessica Harper, Cliff De Young, Patricia Quinn, Richard O'Brien, Charles Gray, Nell Campbell

    Brad (De Young) and Janet (Harper) are invited to be contestants on a new game show at DTV. Soon, they are met by characters so crazy, it makes their marrital(sp?) problems seem miniscule!
  • The Good: The music. Especially "Bitchin' In The Kitchen". Its the only redeeming quality of the film. Though, it doesn't help out TOO much.
  • The Bad: This is NOT, I repeat NOT the sequel to Rocky Horror Picture Show! I don't know WHY people insist on calling it that! It's NOT! Say it with me: "ST is NOT a sequel to RHPS." Other than that, the script sucks major ass.
  • The Ugly: Nothing. Well, there ~IS~ too much innuendo about Mac and Nation doin' it. ~shudders~
  • Score: **'s, but only because I like the music.

Phantom Of The Opera (1989) [14 Aug 2003|01:46am]

blessedpsycho
  • Title: Phantom of the Opera
  • Genre: Horror
  • Year: 1989
  • Director: Dwight H. Little
  • Main Stars: Robert Englund, Jill Schoelen
  • Rating: R
  • Synopsis: If you've read "Phaontom of the Opera" by Gaston Leroux, or seen the play, then you know the basic plot. But, here goes anyways . . .

    Christine Day (Schoelen) is a young singer studying at the prestigious music school in New York city, and is hoping to get the lead in a new broadway play. Her friend, Meg, who works at the library, has come across the unfinished masterpiece of a 19th century suspected murderer, composer Erik Dessler (Englund). At the audition, she performs the haunting piece. Afterwards, she is almost killed, but in the process, is pulled into the past, into the time of Englund's Phantom. When she wakes up, she is Christine Day, a young opera singer with the London Opera, and has no recollection of her life in 20th century New York. We soon learn that she is being tutored by the phantom, a composer who is as murderous as he is gifted in his composing talents. However, Christine's reputation is soon marred(sp?) when a newspaper columnist is bribed by her Christine's employer to write a bad review of her. This, of course, angers the phantom. You also learn about Erik's curse, and then, about his ties to Christine, past and present.
  • The Good: Great music. Schoelen has a great voice (if that IS her singing, I'm not sure). And the phantom's piece is as haunting as it is beautiful.
  • The Bad: Not the greatest script. And the ending was kinda predictable. They also changed it from Paris to London, and that kinda sucked.
  • The Ugly: The phantom's face, after he removes it. ~shudders~
  • Score: *****!

Death Becomes Her (1992) [14 Aug 2003|01:44am]

blessedpsycho
  • Title: Death Becomes Her
  • Genre: Horror / Sci-Fi / Comedy
  • Year: 1992
  • Director: Robert Zemeckis
  • Main Stars: Meryl Streep, Goldie Hawn, Bruce Willis, Isabella Rossellini.
  • Rating: PG-13
  • Synopsis: Hawn is Helen Sharp, a frumpy soon-to-be wife. Streep is Madeline Ashton, a washed-out actress who thinks that the world revolves around her. Once friends, the two are now only civil to each other, secretly wanting the other to drop dead. Enter Ernest (Willis),a high-profile plastic surgeon, and Helen's fiance. Upon meeting Madeline, he is immediately enthralled, and ends up marrying her. Twenty years later, Helen is fat and sentenced to an insane asylum, while Madeline and Ernest's marriage is falling apart. Madeline is seeing a new boy-toy every week, and Ernest has become reputable man . . . as a mortician. Enter Rossellini, a foreigner with a secret - that of eternal life! The only hitch? No one can ever know. And she must fake her death within 10 years. This doesn't bother Madeline at all.

    ...Except for an ominous warning to take care of her body.

    Later that night, after returning home and a heated argument with Ernest, Madeline falls down the stairs to her death! But that doesn't stop her from getting revenge, when she figures out that Helen and her husband were planning her murder. Death doesn't seem to stop Helen either, also a recipient of the potion that grants eternal life! One thing's for sure - they may not be alive for long, but they're going to live forever.
  • The Good: The effects shots. Meryl Streep walking backwards, and Goldie Hawn with a giant hole through her stomach are GREAT! Simply amazing!
  • The Bad: Acting isn't terribly great.
  • The Ugly: Seeing Hawn's character be shot is kinda disturbing. Especially when you see her guts and blood dilluting the pond she lands in. Then there's the final scene. Really disturbing.

  • Score: I really like this film. I remember renting it every other week from the video store. Then they closed, and a new one opened up, and they didn't have it. So, I'm going to give this one ****'s. It's really funny.

  • Year: 1995
  • Director: Rachel Talalay

  • Rating: R

After her friends are killed, she seeks revenge on those who were responsible. Namely - the Water & Power company, which is run by McDowell, and controlls, well, all the water and power! Well, almost all of it. There's still some water they haven't gotten their hands on, and that is protected by the Rippers, genetically enhanced kangaroo-men. Together with Jet Girl (Watts), they must rescue Tank Girl's sister and shut down W & P.
  • The Good: The comic-book effects and scenes are really hella kewl.
  • The Bad: The story-line is kinda predictable
  • The Ugly: Nothing really.
  • Score: Lots of sexual-innuendo, and all the murders are implied. But, overall, a decent movie. ***'s. My only real disagreement with the film is the rating. I'm guessing its because of the innuendo and mild cursing.

I was thinking, why don't we put all the reviews as club memories? Like, store them by genre (horror, comedy, etc.), that way people can find a movie more easily instead of looking back through all the entries. Whaddaya think?

Night of the Comet (1984) [10 Aug 2003|10:15pm]

blessedpsycho
  • Title: Night of the Comet
  • Genre: Sci-Fi / Horror
  • Year: 1984
  • Director: Thom Eberhardt
  • Main Stars: Robert Beltran, Catherine Mary Stewart, Zoe Kelli Simon
  • Rating: PG-13
  • Synopsis: 65 million years ago - a radioactive comet passed by the Earth, dissintegrating all forms of life save a few lucky ones. Present day (1984) - it's back.

    It's two weeks before Christmas, and scientists have detected a comet that's orbit is so large, the last time it was here the dinosaurs were still around. Now, it's reported to be a spectacle to be scene. Meanwhile, Regina (Stewart) and her boyfriend spend the night in the projection booth of the theater they work in. When they wake up, everyone is gone. Everywhere they look, they find red dust and clothing. However, not everyone was immediately turned to dust. A few have become zombies, shadows of their former selves. In no time, Reggie finds herself alone. Meanwhile, somewhere in the California desert, a scientific think-tank is desperate to find survivors. Some 'genius' left the venting ducts open when the comet passed, and now they've all been exposed and have only a few days to live.

Soon, they're trying to save their lives as zombies and desperate scientists are after them.
  • The Good: The sub-plot of depending on each other to survive.
  • The Bad: Not the greatest film ever, and you kind of think that the ending is just TOO perfect. A scientist realizes that they have no chance, and decides to help the survivors. Guns and TNT are readily available for Reggie and her sister, both armie brats.
  • The Ugly: The zombies. Those mother fuckers are scary as shit!
  • Score: I love this movie, so I'm giving it a ****.
