Watch it, Review it, Get to 100.
I have seen so many movies recently, that I do not want to bore you all with them, so I will review the last two movies that I just saw.
Film Title: The Omen (remake)
Starring: Liev Schreiber, Julia Stiles, Mia Farrow, David Thewlis
Director: John Moore
Approx Length: 110 minutes
Rating of the film, F- [worst] to A [best].: A
Short description/summary of the film: (taken from imdb) A remake of the 1976 horror classic The Omen (1976), an American official realizes that his young son may literally be the devil incarnate.
My thoughts: I was pleasantly surprised by this remake. As much as I love the original, I think it is safe to say that I love this version just as much. I really thought that Liev Schrieber portrayed Mr. Thorne perfectly. There were a few changes in the movie like...
( SPOILERAGE!!!Collapse )
If you really like the remake, then I suggest you see this version as well!
Film Title: Elephant
Starring: Alex Frost, Eric Deulen, John Robinson, Elias McConnell, Jordan Taylor
Director: Gus Van Sant
Approx Length: 81 minutes
Rating of the film, F- [worst] to A [best].: B
Short description/summary of the film: (taken from imdb) "Elephant" is a film about a normal day in high school that ends in a Columbine-esque massacre. We become observers of the events that happen throughout the day, as the film is filled with long tracking shots of students going out of and into classes, the cafeteria, the gym, or the library. The characters in the film are mostly played by non-actors, and most of the film is improvised.
My thoughts: I am glad that I saw this film. I honestly thought that it was going to be a slower-paced film, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was an interesting insight into the lives of both "normal" and "abnormal" teenagers. But because of the subject matter, I do not think that I would want to see this movie again.
Next to View: I am probably going to watch Kiss, Kiss Bang, Bang tomorrow.
