AVERAGE:

A DEAD CALLING – Horror
THAANDAVAM- misleading poster on this light hearted Collateral want to be
COLD SWEAT – Intriguing Horror Film, still need to finish it
APPARITIONS -tv show about possession
LIMITS OF CONTROL- more an exercise than a finished film
RUSSIAN ARK- more an overlong exercise than a finished film
HOLY MOTORS- just plain weird and surreal, and again more an exercise than a finished film
BLANCANIEVES- lost me relatively quickly
NOOSE FOR A GUNMAN- average
GRANDMASTER- too much slo-mo, overlong and pretentious, but beautiful. Worth a look.
TERRAFERMA- Did nothing for me
GIMME THE LOOT- Too much profanity for my liking
BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO- stylish but overlong and ponderous

HAUNTER- Stylish and intriguing
WAKE WOOD- Good Pet Cemetery type film

TALL MAN- Stylish and thoughtful, with a twist that makes you think. Very Good!
ABRAHAM LINCOLN VS ZOMBIES- Not as stylish as the Vampire take off, but well written and played.

Movie Review : Kevin Smith’s RED STATE

Today’s FAVORITE Direct on Demand Movie!

RED STATE – Who would believe that the director who brought us the justifiably derided COP OUT could make something as surprisingly masterful and powerful and thought provoking and challenging as RED STATE. The premise of high-school kids and internet sex and cults, seemingly sounds like expoitation in all the cringeworthy ways or sophomoric humor ways that most of us would choose to avoid. The Kevin Smith slacker humor/films… not my cup of tea.

However the hope of RED STATE being Kevin Smith trying something a bit different and darker inticed me to give this film a try. Glad I did. From an easy beginning it goes to places that are surprisingly and jaw droppingly harrowing and inexplicable.

It is not a highschool, or slacker, or juvenile film. It is primarily a film about messed up adults, faith, anger, and the places dire and dark that belief in our own rightousness, can take us. The dialog and performances, the writing and direction, the feast and the famine… marks this film as something… new under the sun.

It is a fantastic film all the way to that great ending. Grade : Excellent. Not just a must watch, a must own. Highly Recommended!
