The mythology isn't there, the attachment of He who Walks behind the Rows & Gatlin isn't there, & the film's script is loaded with logical faults. Oh & let me also add that this movie can't seem to find a plot, much less a story to tell.I only watched this because it was on Netflix & the brand name rang to me (plus it has an admittedly cool looking cover). My only credit to it is that it has some beautiful cinematography & score, but that's really about it. I can't tell people to just skip it because that'll just encourage them to actually watch it, but just warn you to be bored out of your mind & wonder what the hell is going on. Did I mention the movie also has a directly ripped stock footage from Bad Boyz 2 of cars falling off a big truck in the highway, & the obvious editing is there when it flips between the lead actors & the vehicles falling? Pure hilarity.This is a franchise that needs to be rebooted (yeah, I know, why am I asking after 8 shitty films) but done RIGHT! It could work, but we need writers who actually can pen a proper script & create a coherent story to it.

I suggested earlier that Zhang Ki-Jia's last film Still Life was such a movie. It was shot in a certain valley, chronicling that certain valley's oncoming demise, and that certain valley no longer exists. Philippe Aractingi's film Under the Bombs is another example. Aractingi took only a small crew and a couple professional actors into a reeling Lebanon in the wake of Israeli bombardment. Aractingi shoots as if it were a documentary much of the time on hand held digital. Most shots are close to the actors in the foreground, following them just as a news crew would. Under the Bombs follows Zeina (Nada Abu Farhat), a well to do Lebanese emigrant who has come back to Lebanon to search for her son and sister. She arrives and looks for a taxi to take her to the south. "Too dangerous," is the response. Finally, a cab driver named Tony Georges Khabbaz) agrees to take her. She stands out in her blue dress, revealing cleavage. She's attractive and is offering money, so he accepts. She's cold to him at first, sitting in the back and ignoring his attempts at friendly conversation. As his want of a payday and infatuation turns to genuine admiration and empathy, she slowly warms to him. She eventually moves to the front seat, and starts to open up to him in conversation. She sent her son to live with her sister from Dubai while she goes through a messy divorce. By saving him from marital war, she unknowingly placed him in a real war. Their quest takes them from village to village, each one bombed. People live among ruins as bombs continue to fall in the hillsides. When they reach Zeina's sister's house they find its been crushed by bombs. She's dead. After frantic moments they're told her son was taken by French journalists in the midst of the confusion and smoke. Tony offers to keep going with Zeina if she'll compensate him. He needs the money, though he feels more guilty about taking it as the film goes on. When he tells her that he won't leave her until they find the boy its genuine, money or no money. The performances by the two leads are nothing less than spectacular. They were on the spot, improvisation a necessity as Aractingi sets up shop wherever a situation presents itself. Especially good is Nada Abu Farhat. Her portrayal of Zeina and her emotional state is flawless. If there is a better lead actress performance this year, I haven't seen it. There are a number of scenes where she is the only one acting. She asks people about her son's whereabouts in places where people have gathered for shelter after the bombs. They tell her they don't know, because they genuinely don't. But that's not the striking part. What's striking is their stories, because they are real. The actors are like secret participants in a blind study. Under the Bombs is a very important film for not only its ambitious methodology, but for its brazen portrayal of what wars do to real people. Those bombs fall from the sky not on the heads of enemies, but of men, women, and children. Under the Bombs does not such much take sides with either Israelis or Arabs, but instead takes the side of humanity. That said, Aractingi does not shy away from commenting on atrocities. He allows his characters to decry Israeli atrocities committed against their victims, but also does not sugarcoat the role of Hezbollah in exacerbating the cycle of violence. "It's stupid to poke at a Wasp's nest," Tony suggests. Under the Bombs is a poignant journey into a war ravaged land during its actual ravage. If even for that reason only, it is a remarkable accomplishment. It has a few flaws, but the experiment is a resounding success. The experience is quite powerful, like a 12 gauge gutshot. The final scene of Under the Bombs left me shaken. After experiencing Tony and Zeina's odyssey, the tension and emotion levels are palpable. At this point, the conclusion, whether it is happy or sad (I will not reveal), simply cannot be anything but wrenching.

Colin O (mx) wrote: After surviving an exorcism as a child, Nancy (Linda Blair) goes on to start a family and live a normal life; that is until the devil possesses her through her television and she starts to vomit pea soup again. Pulled out of retirement, it's up to Father Jebedaiah Mayii (Leslie Nielsen) to banish the devil back down to hell. When assessing the quality of a spoof film the question I have is, can a film like this really work if you've not seen the film it's spoofing? Well, I saw Repossessed as a child, way before I'd had the chance to see The Exorcist. I can remember enjoying it despite not getting a lot of the references, but then I was a kid, I'd laugh at anything. It's a crazy fact that more people have seen Scary Movie than have seen Scream, but why? No matter what I think about the quality of Scary Movie, that's another film that relies heavily on knowledge of the film it is spoofing; otherwise, what are you laughing at? In comparison to the spoofs of today (if you can still call them that), this film is a classic. At least it's able to stick to its exorcism theme, not just throwing in references to Lady GaGa and Amy Winehouse because they're current. If you ask me, anyone over the age of fifteen who enjoys the work of Friedberg and Seltzer (Epic Movie, Disaster Movie and Vampires Suck) are just wrong. They're stupid movies for stupid people. Repossessed may be the kind of film that throws as many gags as it can at the screen to see what sticks, but enough of them do to make it a fairly good time. Of course the main trump card this film plays regularly is the casting of Linda Blair, reprising her character from the Exorcist (albeit with a different name). Given her typecasting after the release of The Exorcist and its sequels, perhaps this was the only way for her to use her fame to try her hand at comedy. It must have been a double edged sword to become so famous for one role at such a young age. Leslie Nielsen plays Father Mayii (whose name generates a surprising amount of misunderstandings) a lot goofier than Frank Drebin. He visits the gym for a bit of exercising (exercising, exorcising, geddit?), but can't help but be distracted by all the girlies on show. Originally a dramatic actor, it was through his work with Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker (ZAZ for short) that Leslie Nielsen became a household name. He parlayed his appearance in 1980's Airplane into a starring role in 1982's short lived television series, Police Squad!. It was when the character of Frank Drebin was transferred to the big screen in The Naked Gun that he truly found his niche. Repossessed actually arrived on screen before The Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell Of Fear, and in spite of having no clear connection to ZAZ, it's obviously influenced by their previous works. A lot of the gags in Repossessed are of what I would describe as the "mnnh" variety. Few are laugh out loud, but there's plenty of daft sight gags in the background. If you're looking for a measure of the quality of jokes, I've only just got one of them now, fifteen years after I first saw the film. Linda Blair's character in Repossessed? Nancy. Linda Blair's character in The Exorcist? Regan. Nancy. Regan. Nancy Reagan. If it's that kind of slightly dated, groan worthy gag you enjoy, look no further. The film's finale sees an attempt at a televised exorcism from the clueless Ernest and Fanny Rae Weller, an almighty smack-down with the devil overseen by wrestling commentators Jesse Ventura and 'Mean' Gene Okerlund. Of course, the devil was only using the Weller's popularity to pull in the largest television audience possible, so now it's up to Father Mayii to step in and defeat the beast before it works its way into people's homes through their TV's. How? With Rock and Roll. Or more accurately, with dodgy impersonations of dated musical acts. By no means a film full of must see performances, at least Linda Blair is game for a laugh and gives it her all, clearly enjoying the chance to play with audience expectations and rip into her on screen persona. As is usually the case when he's on the cast list, it's Leslie Nielsen who provides most of the film's highlights. Part Max Von Sydow and part Father Ted, Nielsen's far from his Frank Drebin best, but I'd take this over his more recent appearances in the Scary Movie franchise and Stan Helsing any day. To sum it up, Leslie Nielsen is a comic talent that will be missed, always able to deliver laughs even when the film isn't a classic. Repossessed is far from his best work (for me he'll always be Frank Drebin), but it's worth checking out if you want to see Nielsen in another role.

Some of the acting wasn't stellar, but conceptually it's terrific. Special features include a great interview with sam greenlee, author of the original book and the screenplay. Watch it. Now.

Michael C (us) wrote: Camp X-Ray is a very good film, it really is. Now is it perfect, not really. There are scenes that really dont have to be there and really would not have impacted the film much if cut. now where this film strives is in the writers room and the cast in front of you. The film was both written and directed by Peter Sattler and although this was his first time out he was able to create an interesting story with dialog that didn't feel forced. The performances are solid from everyone involved especially from Peyman Moadi who plays Ali. Kristen Stuart did what she had to do but it wasn't anything we haven't seen her do before. The supporting cast who played the detainees were effective in creating this environment that is gruesome, aggressive and at times disgusting. Now with that being said i wish they did show more of the other detainees and spent just a tad more time on the environment within Guantanamo Bay. Overall the film is a good watch and a very good first debut for Peter Sattler.
Joey W (mx) wrote: Garden State is not a perfect movie. There are many unlikable characters and some scenes seem a bit unneeded. But where the movie shines is the two main leads. Zach Braff is good as always and is able to handle writing, directing, and acting in stride and Natalie Portman is fantastic as a character I have never seen her play before. Where Garden State shines it really shines.
