2.0 out of 5 stars ANNE RICE SHOULD TAKE LEGAL ACTION!!!, 15 May 2006
For those who are familiar which Anne Rice's absolutely fantastic Novels, the Vampire Chronicles, this film takes its plot from 'The Vampire Lestat' and 'The Queen of the damned' but whoever has made this film HASNT READ THE BOOK cos the film is NOWHERE NEAR AS GOOD, it has really annoyed me and other Anne Rice fans as it leaves out the main parts, gets stuff wrong and turns the Character Lestat from a charismatic, confident,unique Vampire, to a character played by Stuart Townsend who is boring and cold - not the vampire we have all grown to love.

At least Tom Cruises portrayal of Lestat in 'Interview with the vampire' was more realistic and fitted look of the character and the charm and humour. Therfore if you have read the books be utterly disappointed, as I am.

HOWEVER, for those who dont have a clue what im going on about, the film follows a Vampire called Lestat, who breaks a rule amongst Vampires that they should keep their identity towards humans hidden. Instead, he becomes a Rock Star and tells the whole world that he is a Vampire and gives out messages in his songs. Ironically people dont believe he is actually a vampire because of the Goth scene and the media.

Anyway, his music and messages awake the mother of all Vampires 'the queen of the damned' (Aliyah)and so on.

This film does have some good points, the goth rock soundtrack and the cool stunts and special effects! But it is still rather lame.

Okay to watch once, but avoid if you have read the books.

5.0 out of 5 stars STYLISH HORROR!, 15 May 2006
This review is from: American Psycho [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
The film follows a good looking, well-educated, wealthy, upperclass business man (the gorgeous Christian Bale) who isant all that perfect...

Behind that beautful exterior, he is psychologically disturbed, with paranoia and the urge to brutally kill.

Unlike the stereotypical horror film this film is rather disturbing itself, as the film defies the conventions of the horror genre by the killer not having a motive to kill - he just does it for no reason. Classic horror films there is an unwritten rule that a human killer must have a reason behind his behaviour; for example Alfred Hitchcocks 'Psycho' his mother was to blame, in 'Scream' sydneys mum was having an affair with the killers dad etc... Therfore Bale's character is rather disturbing which makes the film very interesting.

The film has a few raunchy sex scenes, shots of Christians immense six pack, a great cast including Reese Witherspoon and Jared Leto, a cool 80's inspired soundtrack and plenty of gore for all you horror fans. Especially the memorable scene where he chases a girl naked down the corridor with blood pouring down his mouth whilst holding a chainsaw!!!

Great Film, a must-see.

5.0 out of 5 stars ATTENTION ALL WOMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, 16 Mar. 2006
This review is from: Enough [DVD] (DVD)
When you think Jennifer Lopez, you think cheesy rom-com films such as 'The Wedding Planner' and 'Maid in Manhattan'. Suprisingly enough this film is not only fantastic but it very inspirational!
The film follows Slim (j.lo) a waitress, who serves a man trying to bed her for a bet and ends up marrying the man who interfers and tells her about the bet. Everything is picture perfect - she get married, has a kid and live in a huge house.
But the fantasy starts to go wrong....
She discovers that Mitch (her husband)is cheating on her, you all think 'why the hell would you stay with him?'
however when she confronts him about it he is physically violent with her and beats her up, threatening her if she leaves him or tries to take his daughter away.
Juilette lewis co-stars as slim's friend who, one night, helps her to escape
Slim lives her life on the run with a false identity, trying to keep her and her daughter safe, however no restraining orders will stop her violent husband, and with a friend in the police he tracks her down. Again on the run she realises that you can run but you can't hide and no restraining orders will stop her violent husband, therefore she must fightback....
This film is very inspirational with a strong message;
"you have a divine animal right to protect the lives of yourself and your offspring"
If you like thrillers or films with a really good plot this is the film for you but also...
It empowers women, and shows women fighting back against rat-bag men, it inspires women to stand up for themselves and what to do when we come across (which we all will once in our lives) either a cheater or a violent man.
Over all a very powerful film with a great story, J.lo is perfect for the lead and it will grab your emotions to the highs and the lows!!!!
buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A GUY RICHIE FILM! - Says it all!!!, 16 Mar. 2006
If you are familiar with Guy Richies other films (Snatch, Mean Machine, Revolver) YOU WILL LOVE THIS FILM!!
It has the same feel to it as the other Richie films and sometimes the same cast (Jason Statham, Vinnie Jones.)

The film follows a group of men who all chip in to play a poker game where the stakes are high and you have to have at least £100,000 to play, of course - they end up owing half a million to a Pornshop owner/ruthless gangster. In order to get the money in time they have to.......
I don't wanna ruin it for you cos it is a TOP British gangster film, not over the top where the Americans ruin it, but full of realistic plots, an excellent storyline with twists and turns and gritty black humour.
Great for the Brit-flick fans, gangster/action fans, Vinnie Jones fans as he makes his film screen debut, and people who dont mind watching a film with plenty of guns, blood, violence and swearing, but will also make you laugh your socks off!
A TOP FILM, great from the start to the end, accompanied by an excellent soundtrack!
a must-see!

5.0 out of 5 stars ATTENTION CULT FOLLWERS!, 14 Mar. 2006
This film has all the makings of a cult classic! I suppose you already know the jist of the story so I will give you the lowdown...
If you are one of these strange people (like me) who likes depressive weird films for example Donnie Darko, American Beauty etc THIS IS THE FILM FOR YOU!
Dont get me wrong the film is fantastically shot with a late summer feel to it and beautiful scenes and a chill out soundtrack.
It normal at times and then can get a bit weird, however the film will grab your emotions and at the end make you think. It is hard to describe this film so try it out and see it for yourself! top marks.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT ANOTHER RUBBISH FOLLOW UP!, 13 Mar. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Of course my all time favourite film is the original 'The Crow'(see my review) All of the other Crow films so far have been devastatingley rubbish and have not yet even tried to surpass the original.
However the cast of David Boreanaz(angel), tara reid(american pie) and Ed Furlong(the kid from terminator2)made me think this film was actually worth watching
This film has a dumb plot to it, the baddies are pathetic and i cant really explain-but the film is really light/sunny there isant the dark, gothic, always raining horror film vibe to it that was the unique factor of the original.

5.0 out of 5 stars A CULT CLASSIC!, 13 Mar. 2006
I am sure you are aware of the jist of the story, so I will just cut to the chase...
This is my ALL TIME favourite film!!! Horror fans you wont be disappointed! Depressives/goths/rockers you will thrive from this film! And those who are familiar with the graphic novels-it does it more than just justice.
Not only a great film, with super cool killings, an excellent plot and action packed with Brandons stunts, it has the most immense visuals and special effects of dark urban cities pouring with rain, with tall gothic buildings. The city is full of despair, drugs and violence,and the hole film has a dark vibe to it. However it is not all full of doom and gloom, in the end the film has a strong moral backbone;
"true love lasts forever"
And so will my love for this film, unmissable for the horror/action fan!*****
NOTE!!!!!!! I would not attempt to watch any of the other Crow films as it will leave you disappointed, as none are even slightly comparable to the original, trust me Brandon is the only man for the job!!!!!!!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Cliche,Cliche,Cliche, 13 Mar. 2006
This review is from: House Of Wax [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
Being a dedicated horror buff, I thought the film was good but not good enough.
If U R a 13yr old teen THIS IS THE FILM 4 YOU! Filled with gore, girls and teen rebellion. However even though i am only 18, the more sophisticated horror buffs will find this stupid and predictable, filled with endless cliches such as the 'lets camp here for the night (and all and up dead)' kind of thing.
However there are some good points-
*the Heavy Rock soundtrack
*the good looking cast of males and females including, Paris in her underwear for you young lads
*the gory parts
However the rest is rather lame and been done before, typical american *"£%
