Koara kachô (2005)
Lame, funny, lame, hilarious, lame - Loved it!
OK this is probably not a movie everybody will enjoy. But I did. I loved Calamari Wrestler and I loved Excecutive Koala even more. The simple idea of having an animal in the lead role (and a few supporting roles) works sooo good. I won't reveal the plot here, but what I really loved about this movie, apart for the animal costumes, is all it different settings and themes - mixed with lame humor and animal suits. This is a comedy. But it also a prison movie, a slasher-flick, a musical, a love story, a drama and a Kung-Fu movie. It seems like the director wanted to incorporate as many different genres and settings in this movie in case he never gets to make another movie again (I hope he does). The result is that you never get bored when watching Executive Koala. It's a low-budget flick with ambitions like a Spielberg movie - The end product is hilarious and awesome. Sure the movie is lame - very lame, but in a good way, which can only make you love it!!
The Last Legion (2007)
Piece of crap
I finally finished watching this movie after falling asleep to it 3 nights in a row, and I must say: What a genuine load af garbage! First things first; the acting is absolutely horrendously performed by the whole cast. Even Ben Kingsley is a joke in this movie. But everybody does their share of poor acting: from the crude stupid barbarians, to the insanely hot chick, to the boy (our main character) who is just the most annoying little brat ever. The makers of the movie tries, ia a very pathetic low-fi kind of-way, to give the film a LoTR feel to it, usually accompanied by the most vulgar, irritating and repetitive soundtrack ever. Often it gets kinda funny though: Our heroes is preparing for the last stand, looking out past the castle walls, they see the enemy approaching: Hero1: "How many are there?" Hero2: "Thousands... maybe more" . - What like millions? This movie is lame from the beginning to the end so I advise you not to waste two hours of your life, like I did, watching this garbage. It must be the worst movie I have seen this year along with Clercs 2. The only reason I do not rate this 1 is because of the chick, who is sooooo hot, she makes some of the scenes kinda watchable. The plot? Who cares it's lame.
Big Trouble in Little China (1986)
This is art
This movie is just great - silly, but great. As in most of John Carpenter's films Kurt Russel plays a real macho hero, except in BTILC he's really bad at it. Every time he tries to make a move he fails miserably. But his dialogue throughout the entire film is just hilarious; always bitching and complaining. BTILC is very much a B-movie so don't expect any seriousness in dialogue, plot or action.It's all very silly, very stupid and very entertaining. On the extra-materials DVD there is also a priceless music video, featuring John Carpenter (lead singer), a guy that looks like Adam Sandler and another guy with long golden curly hair and a mustache. This video rock!! Words can't explain how cool these guys look, you have to check it out for yourself. All in all if you like bad movies (like me) this one is a sure winner.
The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
an unworthy sequel to a great movie
How this flick ended up on the top 30 list OF ALL TIME, is a mystery to me. Anthony Hopkins is in no way scary compared to Brian Cox (Lector in Manhunter 1986), who brilliantly captures the essence of insane, with a great subtle performance that, unlike Hopkins, dosen't try to seem like a deranged cannibalistic lunatic with a funny psycho-killer accent. IMO Hopkins is one big caricature of a serial killer which to me is funny - not scary. The visuals in Silence of the Lambs, is also dull and uninspired compared to those in Manhunter where there is lots of beautiful scenes often in deep marine-blue or other clean cut colors - that's art. Just like the audio. It may be kind of 80s with a lot of syntheziser, but it works perfect. Silence of the Lambs is not art. All it tries to do is tell a story, without trying to stimulate the viewer's senses. The story is all right, but you can't help but thinking it could have been so much better, had Michael Mann directed it.
