Matthew K (es) wrote: Nothing says suspense and horror like bad CGI and lots of blood... top that off with bad acting and scrappy directing and you have this film. And despite satisfaction, its pretty boring seeing the assholes get killed and none of the 'good' guys. Despite being crap, its entertaining crap in a crappy, shitty kind of way. Probably best taken in with lots of friends and lots of beer.

Greg B (es) wrote: Not really scary at all. The director uses his camera in an attempt to fill in the holes left by a vacant narrative. There's not much story here other than a man tries to face his fears after an encounter with the boogeyman when he was young leaves him traumatized, he does this by revisiting his old home after his mother dies. It almost feels like the movie makers here realize that they haven't got much to work with so they try to create what tension, and scares, they can by having people walk around really slowly, and reaching for door knobs really slowly, until the ultimate final confrontation with a terrible looking CGI boogeyman. Watch once, and forget about it.
Caroline K (mx) wrote: The premise was interesting enough. 5+ billion people die and the remainder must take the Absolon drug daily to stave off the disease. Absolon becomes the new currency, so it's not in the interests of the pharmaceutical companies to develop a cure. Unfortunately, nothing is done with the premise and instead we have a fairly derivative action/chase movie.

Kenny N (us) wrote: Ted Levine's voice. Something about it just commands a certain level of fear and respect. If I heard that voice on a CB radio, I sure as hell wouldn't be pulling pranks on it. Regrettably, Levine goes uncredited for his role. Everything else is entirely forgettable once the film is over. One viewing, if any, is all you'll need.

Hamburger Hill was as excellent depiction of and reality of the ground war really about. Comments about the really "good" Vietnam movies were the ones that strayed futher from reality and were probably made by one year olds at the time of the war. I believe it was the best true to life version of what the Vietnam War was really like. Everything from the phantom flash hiders on the M-16s, the cluster bombing, to having smoke under your pancho at night all rang true.
Blake P (us) wrote: I shouldn't hate-watch movies. I know I shouldn't. You should walk into the theater with zero expectations, leaving with an unbiased impression instead of a smirk. But yesterday, I did something most movie critics should not do: I went to hate-watch "Insurgent" with my bubbly teenage sister who was most definitely not hate-watching the film. I won't go into details (to be fair, I just posted my review of "Insurgent" only yesterday), but what I will admit is that I left the cinema with a strong feeling of meh, if that's even a feeling (the youths act like it is these days). It's a "blockbuster" for the teen crowd, a B-version of "The Hunger Games". Its biggest crime is not being meh; its biggest crime is being so devoid of any kind of personality. In 2015, well-crafted action scenes and statuesque leads are not enough - they might have been in 1999, but we can no longer party like its 1999, because 1999 was, well, 16 years ago. Nowadays, all we can depend on is ... spunk. It's a shame that a blockbuster as lame-brained as "Insurgent" is going to make so much money; what does it really have to offer? Which finally brings me to "Tank Girl", the 1995 would-be blockbuster that is better known today as being the film that lost $21 million dollars at the box-office, the film that should have made a Lori Petty a star but didn't, the film that Naomi Watts co-starred in before she became the "it girl" from "Mulholland Dr.", the film that now resides in the throes of two golden words: cult classic. I was reminded of the film during, yes, "Insurgent," where Watts makes an appearance as the blandly handsome male lead's mother. In the theater, surrounded by giggling teenage girls, I found myself pondering about that money-losing cult classic I had known about but never watched for years. But enough for backstories; mine, most likely, isn't as interesting as I'd like it to be. I guess the point I'm trying to make is that it's so unfair that "Tank Girl", which is exploding with spunk and personality, is confined to the sad remarkability of a cult film, whereas "Insurgent", which is about as interesting as your sad Uncle Alvarez, is going to make millions upon millions of dollars. (Cut to me going outside during this dark, rainy night, falling onto my knees, and yelling "NOOOOOOOO!" into the air like no one's watching). It comes down to this: please, please don't see "Insurgent". See the breakneck speeded, freakish, abstract, one-liner infused saunter of "Tank Girl". It won't make you smarter, and it certainly won't change your life, but I'll be damned if it doesn't enliven your spirits with its out-and-proud weirdness. The year is 2033. 11 years earlier, a comet hit the Earth with devastating results, causing an endless drought that has turned most of the world into a parched desert. Little of the population remains; most work for, or head, the scheming Water & Power corporation, who use their massive authority to act as a sort of new, evil government. Their latest advancement? They now have the capability to purify blood into water, which is totally reasonable and not at all disgusting. A few people have escaped the clutches of the nefarious executives, however. Among them are Rebecca Buck, aka Tank Girl (Petty). She prides herself in her unwavering wildness: she's overtly sexual, loud, gross, and fearless, deadly with a gun and tough-talking in her words. Unlike the Trises and Katnisses of today, she is blatantly ballsy. She doesn't regret her actions, and she doesn't care what people think of her. When her commune is destroyed by W & P, though, she is kidnapped by their hilariously ghoulish leader (Malcolm McDowell), who sees promise in Tank Girl's defiant attitude but is threatened by it, throwing her into slave work. But of course, she escapes, with a new friend in tow (Naomi Watts). Of course, she embarks on a crazy adventure. Of course, she ends up winning the mini-battle against the company. But who cares about predictability when it's all wrapped up in a tie-dyed package of kookiness? Assembling itself in a sphere of scale-models, campy set-pieces, outlandish prosthetic makeup, animated interludes, and a soundtrack and tone that suggests it all was funded by classic era MTV, "Tank Girl" swirls in a blender of batshit energy, sometimes successfully and sometimes not. I guess it wants to be too many things at once: funny, sexy, cute, action-packed, and most clearly, fun, for lack of a better term. It isn't great at everything it attempts, but what "Tank Girl" never fails at is being downright amusing. Petty's tough broad faade is consistently charming; her presence is so essential that her hit-or-miss (but mostly miss) career can be blamed for this career-defining portrayal. Personally, I think she's absolutely fantastic, but others might not be so sure (she's so delightfully manic). What makes the film work is how well it recognizes the bombastic insanity of its source. The comics, from what I've seen, are eye-popping creations of exaggerated punkiness, having all the swagger of a 15-year-old's brat's daydreams. That tonal emphasis is brought into "Tank Girl" without any misgivings, and that's why it's so much better than (here we go again) "Insurgent". "Insurgent" is so afraid to fail that it doesn't even try to be anything other than a fill-in-the-blank dystopian-set action-romance. "Tank Girl" can fall flat on its face once in a while, but at least it has the nerve to do so. It's not perfect, but Netflix streaming is much cheaper than a wasted ten dollars.
