District 9 Review

Posted in Movie Reviews on August 23, 2009 by eclipticepoch

I know, I just wrote a review for Inglorious Bastards, but then I felt guilty. I watched D-9 last Monday, and felt that I should say a little piece on it. This movie was fucking awesome. Yeah, I said it. The previews can go fuck themselves too. They were awful, and only tried to hype the movie, and I feel did it very little justice. The two main characters, human and alien, were very good (proving how bad Jar-Jar Binks really truly was), and the human character arc was one of my favorite in any movie, sci-fi or otherwise. He starts out such a little prick, but I’ll let you see where he goes without ruining it. This movie is well, well worth going to watch. If you have not got a chance, then drop what you are doing this evening, and go. Especially if you are a fan of sci-fi, because we do not get very many of these…. For me this movie was a 5/5 stars, but that may be the geek in me. At least a 4-4.5/5.

Inglorious Bastards Review

Posted in Movie Reviews on August 23, 2009 by eclipticepoch

I’ve been meaning to write this review since Friday.

inglourious-basterds-20090506031026779

So here it goes. Movie was pretty good for a Quentin Tarantino movie. Although it felt like a collection of scenes, and to me, lacked a completely coherent flow.  The movie’s “chapters” didn’t help this feeling of mine. My main complaint with the movie is that I wish they would have spent more time on the Bastards, bc besides Hitler and the Jew Hunter, they are by far the best parts of the movie. I think the movie could have done with less Shosanna (Mélanie Laurent, who I thought was the daughter from Rome, but I think I am mistaken now….), who is a Jew in hiding that owns the movie theater where the shit hits the fan. Hitler and the Jew Hunter steal every scene they are in with Christoph Waltz being one of the best villains I have seen in quite awhile (if ever). Ending was very well done, and Brad Pitts accent is worth the price of admission alone. Id say 3 1/2 out of 5 stars overall. As a Tarantino movie, probably a 4-4.5/5, I don’t know how much better he can actually do.
