SOAP - Follow up

Yes thats Jackson TASERING... thats right T-A-S-E-R-I-N-G a cobra... how can you not love this movie?

Watched the new trailer of the SOAP movie. Tagline is Sit Back Relax and Enjoy the Fright... well it could not have been better. The movie is set to be the master of all cheesy scary movies and we are all going to be much better people because of that.

Yes ok.. not to prick the bubble but the snakes seem to be especially bad tempered in the trailer, they infact really go after people and all of them have fangs WAY bigger than they are supposed to be. Can they infact be genetically engineered ? That would be a fun movie.. does this remind you of Dr Evil saying "Rrrrriggght... Sea Bass... Are they Ill tempered?"

An evil veterinarian??? anyone????

Movie Review - The world's fastest Indian

Talking about paradoxes... this is one really slow movie to be made about a speed devil. Yes the movie was touching at points and it had the ghost of human kindness blowing all over. Burt Monroe endears himself to everyone and at times acts very smart and gets things done. What is also interesting is that there has eben tooo many references to his sex life and how he seems to bed every lady he ever meets...

Also the fact that you know how the movie is goign to end even from the first scene kind of makes the entire movie a sort of a drag. I did mind watching the movie, and I will not recommend you to spend your hard earned money on another one of those 'triumph of human spirit' movies. I gather it is playing or goign to be played in Sathyam... watch teh pulikesi movie instead.. atleast hatred will be more channelized.

Movie Review - Red Eye

In the movie The Big Lebowski, there is this super amazing sequence. Walter SObchak has a 'Swiss Watch' of a plan to NOT give kidnappers the money, but to give them his dirty undies, and then beat the info about the hostage from the kidnappers. That WAS a 'Swiss Fucking Watch' and it had the now famous repurcussions...

Well, Walter Sobchak seems to have planned the main assassination that is the crux of the movie. The plan is to kidnap some vague hotel manager and threaten her to change the room number for the high profile politician so that some vague guy from teh bay can use a high profile cruiser missile to get to that room? Was that really the plan even before she had to board a plane to attend her grandmothers funeral? If terrorists were so dumb, I guess then they deserve to die by the bushels in Iraq.

Well to tell you the truth, there was one thing that was really noteworthy in that movie.. and that alone was interesting enough for a quick 10 minute run-through... the initial confrontation between the protoganists is really engrossing. It is almost like the movie is a really nice love story developing, but then once the 'thriller mode' sets in.. we are in for a shit storm.

The movie is just another Kidnap thriller, though the logistics of the build up are mind boggling. The various 'idiot alert' questions that come up are all deviously answered... it is like the director has really tried to give a good movie. Even if you do find some glitches, you just do not have time to point it out.. as the movie moves along at breakneck speed.

Wes Craven has also made sure that there are no unnecessary characters introduced. Not one scene seems unnecessary. Even the little girl comes of use but then the way the director has brought her on seemed pretty Bollywoodish. Well in the end all's well turns out OK.. Kitnaa Naai dies and hotel.. manager gets a pay hike...



Movie Review - The Devil's Rejects


Sid Haig as the Clown. You can watch the movie just for this guy


yes she is wearing the face of a dead man


Anyway I liked watching this Rob Zombie's wannabe cult classic. Yes they made House of a 1000 corpses and it was almost like a parody made in bad taste. Every horror movie cliche was exploited in that movie. That movie was really fun to watch.

In the Devil's Rejects, the same family is now being hunted by the police... and the story resembles Natural Born Killers... though it is not quite that engrossing. Sid Haig as the clown is interesting and some of his dialogues are icy in all its childishness... when he threatens the kid that the next time he comes, if the kid does not give him 10 reasons to fear clowns.. he will most certainly diembowel the mother... well you know how the laughs go in that one.

Rob Zombie has gone to great lengths in trying to get some really awesome freaks for this movie. The characters are stomach churning and their activities completely freak you out. On the whole the movie does what it was intended to do. To Disgust AND to Entertain.

Overexpoed (bright) film accentuates the arid feel of the Texas landscape. The repeated characters such as 'Tiny' from the house of a 1000 corpses have been effectively used. Dr Satan does not make an appearance.. it would have been interesting to see what his position in the movie was.

The pick of he weird characters is one of the mexican goons. He reminded me of that amazing wrestler... do you know who I am talkign about ? Just look at his picture... but just with more gashes to his head. So ok... it is almost as if I am waiting for the next one of Rob Zombie's. He is like the quentin Tarantino fo horror movies... and when he goes overboard, he does it in style.
