Fans of classic horror movies will like for sure this movie the sounds effect as music used bring me back so many good memories, as the focusFans of classic horror movies will like for sure this movie the sounds effect as music used bring me back so many good memories, as the focus of the camera and the environments show real people in a real world gives the feeling of reality by time to time, painfully something is missing, the description of the movie is "After Jay sleeps with her new boyfriend, for the first time, she learns that she is the latest recipient of a fatal curse that is passed from victim to victim via sexual intercourse" of course with that description you expect something really crap but it is good indeed, I will wait to see more about the director as it seems to be another genius of the horror movies as born.… Full Review »
The Age of Adaline is the classic example of a movie made by the wrong director. Blake Lively is captivating but the sheer laziness of talkingThe Age of Adaline is the classic example of a movie made by the wrong director. Blake Lively is captivating but the sheer laziness of talking about the most meaningful aspects of her life are not excusable. The narration is embarrassing and moments are missed. Change everything except the concept and Blake Lively and you will have a good movie on your hands.… Full Review »
This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. The finest post apocalypse movie ever.
For lovely background of this movie, it describes details about hopeless desert life. There are several factors for making strong focus in movie, the world view, character, music.
Newclear war cause desertification and shorten human's life. In this movie except little of the people have the killing diseases even the boss of the Citadel(the city). For that reason, the short, hopeless lives keep running on the road with fearless. It makes super cool anal sucking action.
The max main character of this movie, has several past's problem with little girl's phantom, but the movie never tells about his life before newclear war. However we just know that phantome makes sick of him, why he doesn't want to tell his name to others. He didn't talk much, but we did understand much. The immotan, the boss of the citadel with warboys have a killing disease, so they want to make pure(without disease) descendant. The super hot chicks are brearer for immotan, for not certain reason, they want to escape from immotan. The furiosa(right?) want to escape Citadel too, so she breaks fence with those chicks, it makes immotan pissed off, that is why those whole crazy races has started.
It was the most fancy thing that the big truck with guitar guy. The guitar guy is the member of the warboys(The immotan's men), he plays guitar when the race begin. That guitar sounds make movie more exciting. The most super cool option, I think.
For those reason, i gave this movie the ten.… Full Review »
I went into this movie not having seen the original, so I'm not sure how this movie compares to it. But here's my opinion:
The entire castI went into this movie not having seen the original, so I'm not sure how this movie compares to it. But here's my opinion:
The entire cast is pretty bland. The actors did a decent job (especially the kids) but because of the lack of character development, which was desperately needed, I had no emotional attachment to the any of the characters. The plot was also a bit lacking; very little was explained and the ending was SOOOO lame that the movie left a bitter taste in my mouth.
So if the character development and plot are lacking then the movie should certainly make up for it through its special effects and scariness right? Well the former is actually the highlight of the movie but the latter is actually my least favorite thing about the movie. I'll go ahead and say it. This movie is not scary in any sense. Their are a handful of jump-scares, but they barely even made me flinch. I was practically BEGGING the movie to scare me around half way through, and I ended up being disappointed. The trailer is scarier than the movie. The poster that you've probably seen in movie theaters with the clown doll on it is scarier than the movie. The dark parking lot that I had to walk through to get back to my car after watching the movie was - you guessed it - scarier than the movie.
Is this movie bad? No. It kept my interest through its entirety because of its special effects and cool set pieces. But I expect a horror movie to keep me on the edge of my seat for the whole movie. I was never on the edge of my seat in this movie.
If you want to go to this movie for the scares (like I did) - STAY AWAY.
If a haunted house movie with cool special effects sounds appealing to you - See it.
If you're on the fence, I would definitely say pass.
If you're considering watching this in 3D, DON'T. I have tried for years to convince myself that 3D could actually add depth to movies (no pun intended), but this movie reinforces my belief that 3D is just a gimmick to milk more money out of movie-goers like myself.… Full Review »
It's not a terrible film, but considering all the brilliant people who made it, it's bizarrely incoherant. Nothing ever comes together, andIt's not a terrible film, but considering all the brilliant people who made it, it's bizarrely incoherant. Nothing ever comes together, and there are no great emotional moments. It's just very flat.
It's visually limp also; the film's look is a dull grey sheen. The cast is energetic, but no-one really has anything to do except run from one place to the next. I kept waiting for the story to start.
Trivia: the great film editor Walter Murch (Apocolypse Now, Godfather 2) was originally in sole charge of the film's editing and post production. In the end, a Jerry Bruckheimer editor was also credited, which suggests there were big problems putting the thing together.… Full Review »
