"Money won is twice as sweet as money earned."



ARQ - 8/10





once again i forgot how to do popcorn ratings but 2.5

Very messy plot, allot of shakey cam during the second act or so, which really annoyed me. The protagonists are incredibly unlikable even for a Rob Zombie movie, they all come across as pretentious dirt bags, and the most character development we get is flashbacks of the characters dancing. However, the first 5 minute monologue and the 3rd act are so kick ass and captivating thanks to Richard Brakes incredible portrayal of ''Doom-Head'' this movie is surely re-watchable for me and I think it has a permanent spot in my guilty pleasures.





Magnificent Seven (2016) -


While I didn't hate anything about it, there's not much here to praise either. It's pretty much the definition of average.

The big drawing point for this movie is the cast, and they do at least give notable performances. I haven't seen the 1960 version in a very long time, yet everything about this movie was incredibly familiar. It didn't do anything innovative, but it was at least interesting enough to hold my attention for the entire 130 minute runtime.

It's a pointless remake, but at least it's a watchable pointless remake.

Ladies, may I have your attention please. If you lean forward and to your left, you will see our head sideshow freak, in charge of today's circus presentation. He is an angry, rabid, suicidal, senile, babbling fool, an eccentric and a slobbering imbecile. Enjoy the show!



The rest of the movie seemed like a long and awful comedy. Send in the clowns...



I would not watch it again, and I probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone, simply because I did not enjoy it that much.

That being said, it's probably an essential educational tool for the German people, especially if their general mentality was accurately displayed in the film.

Yes..well now that your leftist SJW tirade is out of the way, can we get your opinion on the film and not the politics please.

Between this and the fact that you voluntarily compared yourself to an unrepentant neo-Nazi in the "3 Fictional Characters" thread, I really am starting to wonder just what your deal is, Slob. Also, how much of an opinion can you have about a film like Downfall that doesn't involve one's personal politics to some extent or another?

Anyway...

Very weird to think that the director's next movie after this one was Midnight Express.

I got all that out of the movie. Seen others with/on hitler, but, never had to watch him and his supporting cult portrayed as such morons. It was like a bad, bad comedy.

What's your rating of Downfall?

This sounds more like dramatic irony than just bad comedy, though. It is possible to emphasise characters' flaws and stupidity within a dramatic context instead of a comedic one, even if it may be to the extent where you think you're watching an unfunny comedy.

What's your rating of Downfall?
Judging by my records, a
. That being said, I haven't seen it in about a decade so maybe it's time to revisit it and see how it holds up.

I could say that I'm an "unrepentant" Communist if it would be more palatable?

That's about the same rating I gave it. For me, a second viewing diminished the power of the movie to a small degree, but still impressive.

It wouldn't because I'd know that you were lying.

Thanks for the reminder. I actually own Romper Stomper (1992) on DVD. I started watching it some years back, but, I lost interest and turned it off. It actually has good ratings. Maybe it's time to revisit, as a more mature viewer.

I recommend...

28 days...6 hours...42 minutes...12 seconds
Audrie & Daisy

(Bonn Cohen &Jon Shenk)





A harrowing look into the rape of two 14 year old girls by people they thought were their friends. The film focuses on the aftermath of the sexual assaults, how one girl took her life and how the other prevailed despite numerous attempts.

Yup, this is a hard one to sit through, especially when you hear some of the disgusting rationalizations some people try to make about the incidents. I don't know what aspect of the film is more shocking; the rape of multiple 14 year old girls, the bullying these girls had to go through by classmates, the humiliation, the results of the case against the perpetrators, the suicide, the atrocious comments from the local sheriff. I think the last one has to be noted as he tries to clarify that it wasn't rape (it was) and that the girls were just as much at fault as the boys, who were a few years older.

The film chronicles the events that took place with both girls and it can be tough to sit through. It gets worse when the mother of Audrie tells the story of how she found her daughter. Things then shift to Daisy who goes through a similar situation. She attempts to take her own life, but fails. Her life takes a turn for the worse and she shuts everyone out. Dyes her blonde hair black, gets multiple piercings and becomes a completely different person. The bright side is that she manages to persevere.

There are plenty of documentaries out there that will test the patience of the viewer. This one is no different. I felt the anger that these parents had for the lack of justice for their children. Whatever "justice" that was served was laughable and an insult.

Suspect's Reviews





A lesser 127 hours, but with more sharks, questionable CGI, and climax decisions. Even knowing what it was going into it, I came out less than satisfied.

2/5
