No, just no. Nobody wants to see this silly story of the "real" Hercules. The reason why Greek Mythology has been so famous and popular for hundreds of years is because of how interesting and exciting the stories are. This movie on the other hand is boring and predictable. I have seen many low and high budget Hercules movies and this one might just be the worst one of them all. Especially considering it's 100 million dollar budget.… Full Review »
Historically, the things depicted in the movie DID happen, if not ALL to ONE tank crew . . . and much of the tactics and battle scenes are inaccurate (albeit, gripping) . . . but hey, it's a movie. I think it would help if many of the negative reviewers saw the film with someone who could explain the history and meaning of some of the scenes to them. Sure, I saw a lot of the same formulaic things that have been criticized, but when put in context to actual events, these things will make better sense. The movie gets the looks right, it is well acted and it presents a very interesting storylline which presents may opportunities to teach a thing or two about not just WW2 but war in general.… Full Review »
It tones down the horror in favor of comedy, but all in all it's still one of the craziest horror flicks of all time. You really never know what to expect as there are unpredictable moments that come one after another. It's all brought to life with visual effects and tricks that no one uses today anymore. Granted it looks dated, but it's visual tricks are still all the more exciting and different. It's clear that this is pure imaginative horror-comedy.
I just wish it was more horror and less comedy. It's not a scary movie. It's also not a particularly funny one. It's still entertaining, but it's strength lies in it's incredible weirdness as well as with Raimi's imaginatively twisted scenes and Campbell's performance. It's easy to see why this one became a cult-classic. It's unlike anything you've ever seen before and I really wish more horror movies would be this unique nowadays. It's not the best horror-comedy, but it's still worth a watch for hardcore genre fans. Overall I give it a 6.8/10.… Full Review »
"St. Vincent" stars Bill Murray, Jaeden Lieberher, Melissa McCarthy and Naomi Watts in this beautiful film written and directed by Theodore Melfi. Mr. Murray outperforms his previous best works and displays his skill as an actor that few will be able to surpass. The film also represents the cinematic debut of a young actor named Jaeden Lieberher who will capture the hearts and minds of the audience as he displays his remarkable talent. He’s just really good and a pleasure to watch and experience. Set in a middle class Brooklyn neighborhood, Mr. Melfi brings to the screen a "feel good" film that will surprise many who may have never quite connected with the in your face style of Ms. McCarthy. She needs to play more serious roles for she is really good when she does them and she is outstanding in this one in particular. I give this film an 8.0 and recommend it to viewers of all ages for joyous and heart warining stories know no labels or boundaries.… Full Review »
This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. This film reminded me of District 9, in that the setup is far more interesting than the resolution, which, for the most part, eschews the sci-philosophical subject matter in favor of a paint-by-numbers industrial thriller, complete with villains who are far less fleshed out than the film's flesh-less robots. However, the first half really is very good, and the second half is good enough to make me wonder what an interesting film this might have made if it had dispensed with the evil henchmen and focused more on the robots' leader through its interactions with Jacq.… Full Review »
