# 435 – American Psycho

american-psycho_01

 

Probably don’t watch this one with your dad. There’s quite a bit of sex, but it doesn’t overshare. The gist behind most scenes is actually more disturbing than the scene itself.

I had to do a lot of reading on this one. It is based on a novel, which I think I would find a lot better. The movie leaves a lot of things unanswered and you really have to dissect it, which is actually quite difficult when you’re not ready. Having to break a movie down too much will just push people to think that the movie is stupid and then it really doesn’t get appreciated.
I could write a lot about the themes and the ideas behind the novel (because it’s actually not stupid) but I won’t. If you’re into that kind of thing I’d suggest you do your research. It’s quite interesting.

On another note, some great acting by Christian Bale as the bad guy. Especially when I’ve come to know and love him as Batman. He is also seriously attractive and must have worked out a lot before this was made. His eyes though.. scary as fuck.

Enjoy 🙂

#441 – Being John Malkovich

being_john_malkovich

Malkovich? Malkovich! Malkovich.

A couple of big names in this one, some of my faves actually… Cameron Diaz is Lottie who is married to John Cusack’s Craig who finds a portal at his new workplace that leads into John Malkovichs’ mind.

Let’s take a minute to appreciate the awesomeness that is John Malkovich. My love for this old man started when I was a little girl watching my very first action movie, Con Air. He’s just a cool guy and one hell of an actor. As is John Cusack (who I’ve also loved since that same movie) and I always enjoy watching something with him in it.
Cameron Diaz is a sexy, powerful, role model… she can never go wrong.

This movie though… well it’s no Con Air. But it is very funny. Very odd too, but funny. The plot is intriguing, twisting and turning all the way to the end (which, by the way, I didn’t completely comprehend until reading the plot outline on wikipedia…lol).

It’s not really something that can be explained in a couple of paragraphs. I did enjoy it, even though my exact words at the end were… “What the fuck just happened?” Apart from that, I’m not sure what else I can tell you. At the very least… it belongs on the list. So that’s saying something.

Until next time 🙂

# 447 – The Master

THE MASTER

I won’t waste too much time on this one… already wasted 2 and a half hours watching it.

Best part of the movie – Joaquin Phoenix, such a great actor! But that’s about it. It was sort of about a cult leader, sort of about an alcoholic, sort of about sex… but didn’t really go anywhere. It doesn’t really explain anything and it didn’t even really have a story.

I’ll save you some time and say probably just skip it.

# 476 – Santa Sangre

Santa Sangre

 

I won’t waste too much of your time on this one…

It took a very very long time to find this and when we finally did it cut out at 51 minutes. I honestly can not be bothered trying anymore. From what I did see in that time, it wasn’t terrible but not worth any more of my precious time.

It was intriguing, a little sick and a lot weird but not that bad that it had to be turned off. If I was ever to come across another copy I would probably watch it just to see what happens in the end.

I’d probably rate it a 3… keep in mind that I didn’t see the end though, which can often make or break a movie!

# 478 – Flesh

Flesh

 

Great Movie!
Said no one. Ever.

Is it even a movie? I wouldn’t call it one. First 30 seconds I knew I was in for it when they just showed this guy ^ sleeping for like 4 minutes… and then BAM an almost close up shot of his hairy butt. Then him and his girlfriend for the next ten, then him and that baby ^ for the next ten then I said WTF and we fast forwarded it a bit and then we called it. Time of death 37 minutes in.

I’m going to say something I never thought I’d say. I’d rather watch Antichrist.

Hmm. I actually don’t even know what to say.

The first half hour or so really is beautiful. It’s sad, deep and very intense. But I was unsure the whole time of where it was going and it always had these weird, scary undertones.

Then it went completely nuts. I feel like everything had some sort of hidden meaning, like every single second meant something. I suggest watching it if you feel like decrypting a very sexual, violent riddle. If not, then maybe you shouldn’t watch it. I also, very strongly, suggest that you don’t watch it with your dad. Watching a lady crazily masturbate under a tree in the woods just isn’t the kind of thing you want to share with family.

The acting was great! Very believable. The story though… I came in from watching it and my partner asked me what it was about. I couldn’t give him a straight answer. Gynocide? Human Nature? Porn? Either way, it made me more and more uncomfortable as it went on and when it was over I breathed a very big sigh of relief.

Dad’s words… Thank God we never have to watch that again.
