John Carter (2012)
Bad dialogues, uninspired action scenes and confusing story. Thank God I read the comic some time ago, because I would be completely lost. What, who, why? Those were the questions I was asking myself while watching... and the movie barely explains anything. Visually the film is fine, but nothing that we haven't seen before.
I really wanted to like this movie, ehh
a World War 1 movie with a good premise but it suffered from lack of character development, a thin plot line and slow pacing;
even the aerial battle sequence can't save this movie.
Men in War (1957)
hard hitting little known Korean War film with an excellent cast and interesting characters.
if you like your war films realistic, this anti-war war film is for you!!
Crime d'amour aka Love Crime (2010)
well made female revenge movie;
if you like your women scheming and conniving, this is a hell of a thriller.
it's too bad that Brian De Palma wants to insult this movie by remaking it and considering his failed track record with the Thriller genre these past 14 years, it will definitely sucks!!
I don't care what negative things do the critics say about this film - this is one of my favorite Connery's films outside of the James Bond franchise!
This is also Connery's comeback film... without it, he would never had been cast for The Untouchables and win a Best Actor Oscar for that film!!

Yes i am eagerly awaiting Prometheus.
there once was a good director named Joel Schumacher.
His hit movies ranged from St. Elmo's Fire to The Lost Boys to The Client to Falling Down to A Time To Kill....
then came the late 90s and Joel's directing career faltered with Batman Forever and Batman and Robin and 8mm...
that's when Joel should had known to stop directing and find a new career; but he persisted on directing more films and the more films he directed, the more crap he made!!
Crap like Phone Booth and Veronica Guerin and Bad Company and The Number 23 and a couple of other low budget Horror Porn!!
The only single movie directed by Joel from the mid 90s to 2011 worth a look was Tigerland.
Trespass is not much better than the crap Joel's directing skills put out in the 90s and 2000s.
The plot is so rehashed from previous films: peppered with poor dialogue and the absurd situations that are thrown in for good measure, one after another just to string the plot along for 90 min!!
Nicole Kidman is wasted. Nicolas Cage is wasted. Even the young talented actress who plays their daughter, Liana Liberato is wasted.
There is a lot of crying and screaming and screaming and crying throughout the entire film that you'd just want to scream at them (get out of the house!! you have your chance!! go, you idiot!!) and then you want to cry (why am I watching this film? what did I do to deserve to be tortured by this horrendous film?)
My rating: 1/5
This is my next to lowest rated film I've seen this year:
0.5 above Drive;
.25 below Trust and 1.0 below The House of Devil!!
I guess crappy movies love crappy movies company too!!
My advice to Schumacher, the same advice I gave him after Batman Forever and then again after Phone Booth:
Stop directing! Quit your Day Job!!
The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946)
The good old days when a woman was Hot and Beautiful and she knew it and she was confident about it and she didn't have to take her clothes off to prove it or go to extremes like implants and other kinds of plastic/cosmetic surgery.
War Horse (2011)
War Horse is a Steven Spielberg's film adaptation of a Children book published in 1982 by an English Author.
It tells the story of a Albert, a Boy and a horse that he raised since it was a fawn who are caught up in the horror of World War I.
There is a scene set in No Man's Land between the British and German trenches where 2 soldiers of each opposing army come together to help the horse, the main character of this emotionally charged and moving story.
This is not a War movie, this is a movie about how in the midst of one of the most horrific Wars Man ever waged on each other in its history, a horse can bring out the best compassion and tolerance in every one it touches.
From the brothers who are reluctant to fight in the German Army to the Grandfather and Granddaughter caught up in events they can't control to the Boy who lies about his age to join the British Army so he can find his horse:
every character in this film will touch your heart.
The photography is stunning, the scenes are beautifully set and all the actors and actresses in this film shine in their performances.
This is the film that should had won Best Picture of 2011; not that black and white silent French film.
If you don't shed a few tears during several of the moving scenes in this film; you are either emotionally dead or a sociopath.
My rating: 5/5
Silver Streak (1976)
I remember seeing this movie in the theater in Italy when I was about 11 years old and loving it.
It's a fun movie and Jill Clayburgh (R.I.P.) is a simple, wholesome, down to earth beautiful woman.
Strange that Clifton James plays a Hilly Billy Sheriff in here too and Richard Kiel plays a Tall Bully Bodyguard with Metal Teeth, 7 months before The Spy Who Loved Me was released.

Sorority Row (2009)
Oh My Gawd!
Even scandily clad and topless sorority girls couldn't save this banal movie!!
This should had been named: "I Know What You Did Last Summer 3: the College Years!!"
Murder at 1600 (1997)
uneven political thriller with Wesley Snipes, originally written for Bruce Willis, but it more than makes up for it with the Diane Lane Hotness Factor
Texas Killing Fields (2011)
between 1968 and now, there has been over 50+ unsolved cases of young girls and women of all races, missing and some of them found dumped in the swamps and marshes in an area off US 45 near Texas City, outside of Houston, TX.
Supposedly this movie is "based on those true events".
Well, this movie is a mess, from a great cast (Sam Worthington, Jessica Chastain, Chloe Grace Moretz) that are not given much to work with, to the poor editing, to scenes that seems out of place, to the incoherent exposition that makes you wonder if some scenes ended up on the cutting room floor, to the 3rd act and ending that seemed forced.
By the way, this film is directed by Ami Canaan Mann, Michael Mann's daughter;
I guess she is still in Director's training wheels!!
Ridley Scott's Black Rain (1989)
They don't make Action Thrillers like this anymore....
nowadays it's all MTV style quick editing and Jason Bourne style action and fight sequences with big CGI explosions and SFX stunts combined with unnecessary gratuituous violence and porno horror!!
Goddamn shame that is too!!
