The Roommate

Boris’ version:

Greg’s version:

We mostly made this skit to try out the new camera. Most of the dialogue was improvised and in the process we coined a new phrase “douching around.” Edward was behind the camera. After it was filmed, Boris and Greg decided to have an editing competition.

Review: “The Killer Inside Me”

The Killer Inside Me

There are movies that are realistic, and are powerful because of it. Then there are movies that just shouldn’t be made. This movie is closer to the latter. It is basically just a snuff film with really weak acting. This movie is based on Jim Thompson’s 1952 novel, and there are some things that do not translate well into film. The graphic beat-downs that Casey Affleck’s character inflicts on Jessica Alba and Kate Hudson’s character are more intense and prolonged than anything seen in even a gritty crime thriller. At least, in a crime thriller, you go in expecting graphic violence. But this movie does not present itself as a crime thriller, it looks more like a slow (at times, boring) crime drama, with a comedic soundtrack. This type of story can only work in a novel, where the reader only has to imagine the morbidity of these scenes, rather than seeing them performed in great detail. The story and acting completely lack substance. Although not all movies need a happy ending, there should at least be a resolution or closure. This movie won’t give you that, even after enduring all the mental torture that ensues. Overall, director Michael Winterbottom completely failed with this movie.

The Verdict

  • Must See!
  • Not Bad.
  • Rent It.
  • Must Miss!

Review: “Kick-Ass”

Kick-Ass

“Kick-Ass” is the perfect way to describe this movie. This is definitely one of the greatest “super” hero movies ever made. It is on par with The Dark Knight and Iron Man. The story is an original take on a cliché, adapted from a graphic novel by Mark Millar (who also wrote the graphic novel which inspired the movie Wanted). Director Matthew Vaughn is no stranger to the action film genre since his directorial debut film Layer Cake. And he has also produced all the greatest films by Guy Richie. But this is definitely the film that will help make him a household name. Even though most of the action scenes were shown in trailers (especially the red-band trailers), pretty much in their entirety, there is still a lot more that remains to be seen on the big screen. The bad guys in this movie are typical but the heroes are as original as you can get. Kick-Ass may be the main character, but the most memorable heroes are Big Daddy (who looks like Batman but makes him look like a big pussy, and even has a better back-story) and Hit-Girl (who is probably the best sidekick any hero can have). The ending has an opening to a sequel so there is much to be anticipated!

The Verdict

  • Must See!
  • Not Bad.
  • Rent It.
  • Must Miss!

Review: “The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day”

The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day

“The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day” is a good sequel to a great flick. There were a lot of similarities to the first one but there was enough originality to keep it fresh. The returning characters are still as entertaining as they were in the first flick and the new characters are just as interesting. Julie Benz’s character was a bit cartoony at parts but overall was a good addition. Unfortunately, it was a limited release so you’ll have to wait until the DVD/BluRay release to see it, but I’m sure it will become a cult classic as the first one did. On a plus side, there was an opening to another sequel, so that’s something to look forward to.

The Verdict

  • Must See!
  • Not Bad.
  • Rent It.
  • Must Miss!

Review: “A Christmas Carol” (2009)

A Christmas Carol

“A Christmas Carol” is a well-directed film. But I do have a few problems with it. The pacing is really slow at parts which makes it quite boring. And much like all of Robert Zemeckis’ motion capture flicks, this one is no better. The first time I was put off by “realistic” 3D film was Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within because there was no realism in the character’s movements and facial expression. The second was Robert Zemeckis’ Beowulf. It was the first movie I ever walked out on. It’s like watching an hour and a half long video game cutscene. I believe that motion capture is great when used as a supplement to an actor’s live action performance as seen in Brad Pitt as Benjamin Button; or Gollum in Lord of the Rings, who interacts with real actors, but not as a whole movie. But I digress. As a movie, it’s worth watching only in 3D. Which is the only reason I give it a Not Bad instead of a Rent It

The Verdict

  • Must See!
  • Not Bad.
  • Rent It.
  • Must Miss!

Review: “Law Abiding Citizen”

Law Abiding Citizen

“Law Abiding Citizen” is a great thriller. The story is very well put together. Even though there are many cliches, it is still very original. The plot borrows a lot of elements from movies such as The Dark Knight, The Punisher, and Silence of the Lambs. All these elements work well with each other and a really brought out by the performances of Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx.

The Verdict

  • Must See!
  • Not Bad.
  • Rent It.
  • Must Miss!
