Crawl,

A huge hurricane was about to hit the town. A girl got worried for not able to reach her father. She went out to look for him, and found her father injured and trapped under the crawl space of his house. Alligators are everywhere, lots of them. I'm sure you guys can figure out what the rest of the film is all about.

I'm a fan of monster movies, but not really into creatures or giant creatures like sharks or crocs etc. The film rated at 82% in Rotten, and that's a lot. It's even produced by Sam Raimi. So I thought maybe I should try to watch this one. Turned out to be, in my opinion, it's just a typical creature film. Man-eating animals. Easily killed the smaller characters, but somehow struggled to kill the main characters. And maybe some other ridiculous stuffs as well.

However, apart from that, it is still nice to look at. The creature effects, the visuals are clearly a notch above most of other creature films. But I don't think the film deserves that 82%. More of 1 and half star, and that's 25 to 30% for me.

A sad day, Sid Haig passed away at 80 years old.
I love him in House of 1000 Corpses and Devils Rejects. Thought he really played the role of Captain Spaulding excellently.

Just finished watching Kin. It was about a guy with his adopted younger brother on the run, chased by a gang which he robbed after a heist. Earlier, the younger brother found a strange futuristic gun that only he can use (some sort like a Judge Dredd gun). There are some sci-fi twist especially towards the end of the film.

I like the idea of the story, but somehow it felt messy or out of sort during the entire film. Loads of big name actors in it as well, but the film was badly written, or directed. Not a film to recommend though. It can be an interesting film, but instead have gone wasted.

{Ed001's Note - never even heard of it to be honest.}

I watched Dark Phoenix on Saturday, I did enjoy it (Sophie Turner fan). It was decent enough but a bit rushed in parts. If you like Xmen then I think you will like it. Well worth a watch.

What do you guys think of Face/Off?

It was, in my opinion, a classic. Classic 90s action flicks, lots of gunfights, explosions and car chases (but it was boat chase in this one). The only thing I didn't like was, it was overlong.

I just read a news that a reboot is in development. They already have a writer, but not yet the casts and a director. What do you guys think about this news?

It was ok, but nothing special. A reboot of it just doesn't make sense tbh.

{Ed001's Note - same here. I don't get this. Average film at best with a crap story why bother?}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Sep 2019 11:11:13
Glad u both feel the same, even though I for one really like the film.

Too many reboots and remakes are going on. Most of the times they ended up making them worst and not better.

{Ed001's Note - I hate reboots and remakes, which is why I can't stand Tarantino as 'homages' are just poor copies. Though sometimes they can make a better version, 99% of them are just trash. Though Bollywood would be in trouble if reboots and remakes were banned!}

Its an alright film. We all know Ed loves Nic Cage. Its another one of those that has an interesting idea but you wonder at the casting.

{Ed001's Note - I prefer Cage to Travolta. That man makes my skin crawl.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Sep 2019 18:52:24
Travolta makes a decent villain. He's the best thing in broken arrow. Face/off would've been better with another actor in the Cage role.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Sep 2019 11:22:23
I also think he was good as the bad guy in Broken Arrow. Thing is, most of his other films are crap. The recent one, and I haven't watch it yet, titled Speed Kills. That's a really crap title.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Sep 2019 22:10:56
He's made some really bad films. Wasn't he told to do some of them by that scientology cult he's in?

{Ed001's Note - I think it is more he wanted to do them for the cult as he hero worships L Ron Hubbard.}

Anyone looking forward to the Joker movie? we have seen some great adaptations (some not so great), my personal favourite being Mark Hamill in the Arkham games, closely followed by Leger. I'm looking forward to see how the character is portrayed in the movie, but from the trailers it looks promising.

{Ed001's Note - I was until all the reviews raved about it and that usually is not a good sign! I am liking they went down the darker route, as one thing I have noticed from the DC TV shows is that the frothy, light ones like Arrow and Flash are crap, while the darker ones, such as Titans, Doom Patrol and Pennyworth are good shows. It has a really high bar with the Dark Knight trilogy to aim at, just hope it doesn't undershoot by as much as Suicide Squad did.}

Suicide squad & justice league struggled because they had a lot of character development to do in a short time whilst also trying to develop the plot. it's the reason why Avengers works is because all the character work is done prior.
I'll be honest other then batman (and associated characters) I don't really care for DC, although I did watch Aquaman and think it's the best one they've done (Only counting movies from their shared universe attempts). If this movie came before JL it would of immediately made it better. Unfortunately DC were playing catch up and decided to rush the whole thing.
I agree though, darker is the way forward for DC it makes them different from marvel that way. And with them now being part of the house of mouse, I think any chance of marvel creating dark movies is remote.

{Ed001's Note - JL and SS didn't work because they were crap, crap stories and crap characters. They didn't develop them, they just threw them in together and hoped it would work.}

Agree0 Disagree0

I am really looking forward for it too. I really like how it looks in the trailers.

I read it somewhere it is meant to be a standalone film though. Does it mean they won't connect it with the Batman character? That part really is a big question mark for me.

Agree0 Disagree0

I'll admit I'm more of a marvel fan. I grew up with iron man, Spiderman and the x-men and fantastic four. Both the comics and cartoons, especially the cartoons. There wasn't much DC fare in the 80s, only the campy 60s batman series and the awful superman films. I was never a fan of superman it was too American. Then came Batman 89.

I've not seen many of the new DC films as they do look mostly terrible based on the trailers.

I've really been enjoying titans think things are progressing too quick could have made trigon a bit longer gave a bit more detail to him

in hero films it's not the hero that makes a good film it's the villain and that is where dc are failing I think they have some really amazing villains the joker has always been my favourite

The joker film looks good and I've read contrasts in opinion some rave reviews and some saying biggest flop of 2019

I went to see this over the weekend. I reckon it's one of the best films I've seen, period.

It was dark for sure, I didn't feel like a two hour movie it flew by. When he gets his suit on and the Gary Glitter tune comes on it really comes to life. Controversial but oh so good !!!

cant wait to watch it again.

Watched Godzilla: King of the Monsters last night.

All I'm going to say is, Godzilla got very angry.

I never saw the fascination with Godzilla and other monster films.

Agree0 Disagree0

The first from Edwards, quite some unhappy on the fact that Godzilla was more like a supporting character than the main. Lack of monster actions. You can't complain on that on this one. Plenty of them in it.

I read quite a few complain about its story. Maybe I kind of agree with them. But I came for the actions and monsters, and I get exactly that. So I would say I'm satisfied with it. I like it for what it is, for what I was looking for.

Agree0 Disagree0

Watched it on Sunday, quite enjoyed it, typical Godzilla movie, I'd say it's worth a watch for sure.

No I haven't. I'm not really into Star Wars but my friend showed me the Vadar vs Kenobi reimagined and it was pretty awesome.

I read an article in comingsoon, about a production is underway for the Kung Fury sequel. As I read it further, I found out the first was actually just a short film that can be watched free on Youtube.

I searched it on Youtube and watched it. Wow! 30 minutes of pure retro fun, action, gags, and nice visuals (it's so nice it's hard to believe they made the film with just 600k of budget). How can I miss this in the first place? Its been 4 years.

After watching it, this film truly deserve to be made into a feature film. Schwarzenegger and Fassbender are the two confirmed casts in it.

Well guys. To those that haven't watch it yet, spare yourself a 30 minute and watch it on Youtube. It's fun.
