Nellie D (ru) wrote: Pontypool is a low-budget zombie horror movie. Because of this, it has certain standards that it should live up to. These kind of movies should be creative and suspenseful.Pontypool starts with Grant Mazzy driving through a blizzard and stopping to help a woman, but she walks away repeating what he said. Upon arrival at the station, he starts his "take no prisoners" radio shtick as a story of rioting and zombies develops. Eventually, Laurel-Ann, one of the radio station workers, becomes infected. The doctor who has been the center focus of the riot also somehow gets in. After Laurel-Ann died, the rest of the mob got in. Mazzy and his producer, Sydney Briar, make their way to a secure place. Mazzy eventually thinks he made a breakthrough, after curing Briar, and they go back to the recording booth and go live to "cure the world". This movie is fairly creative and suspenseful. No other zombie movie that I have seen has made the virus transmitted through words. It is a creative approach to the infection and sets it apart from other movies. It is also suspenseful because you only ever know as much as the characters know (the characters don't know much). You get information in eyewitness accounts and, eventually, seeing it firsthand from Laural-Ann. It is slow to start because it is just a radio broadcast, but once it all kicks off about 1/3 or 1/2 way through, it is very suspenseful and ends on a cliffhanger. Overall, I'd say that if you are looking for a creative approach to a zombie thriller and don't mind a slow start to make your way to a rewarding second half and ending, then this movie is for you. I would watch it again.

Trent R (ag) wrote: Bizarrely, this makes the OSS 117 films seem fairly focused. Dujardin is good, and Testud especially fun as Calamity Jane - but there seems too much of the running time is spent on packing in everything from the comics. It is done after the fashion, (though thankfully not the shamanistic style) of Kounen's Blueberry adaptation in that there is too much concern given to arc and epic import. In this case, that is out of place and odd when mixed with a constant barrage of otherwise appropriately silly jokes. The costumes, lighting and sets are pretty great, however there is not much attention paid to character or plot to draw the interest of those demanding elements other than accurate fan service and genre homage. This made me want to check out the Til Schweiger (Dujardin has a small role) and Terence Hill/Bud Spencer versions for comparison in terms of this balance.

Brad G (es) wrote: After a nearly overlong pre-nuked intro, Damnation Alley blows its wad too early with a great giant scorpion vs. motorcycled Jan Michael Vincent battle. The rest of the film meanders about like the geektastic Landmaster (imagine a van that Jesus would have driven if Jesus had driven vans), and your enjoyment of the film will depend on how much you love the aforementioned Vincent, the strangely mustached George Peppard, and the gregarious Paul Winfield. The film also has some nasty metalic cockroaches, crazed diner hillbillies, and lots and lots of technicolor storms but you'll be craving more mondo as the running time ticks away. Fun, but maybe too serious. VF.
Hunter D (es) wrote: While this film is a loose version of the story of Saint Simeon Stylites, Luis Buuel doesn't use this story to critique religious faith as he is wont to do, so much as lament the loss of the luxury of complete silence in the modern world. SIMON OF THE DESERT isn't even feature length, yet it packs its forty-five minute running time with Buuel's fantastic surrealist imagery, capping off with a truly bizarre-yet-poignant conclusion.
Anna B (de) wrote: If you can get past the dopey setup (human brain, small percentage, unlocking potential, initiate eyerolling), the premise itself is interesting and reasonably well thought through, especially for blatant wish-fulfilment. It's fun if just to see what it would be like to have a perfect memory and no social neuroses from the perspective of someone experiencing those things for the first time. And it has other good qualities (brisk pacing, visual inventiveness, it's unpredictable) so I was entertained.
James K (ru) wrote: Possibly Alfred Hitchcock's best film. Vertigo is not meant to be taken at face value - to dismiss Vertigo as a suspense/mystery film is a crime! Every aspect of the movies is crafted to add to the dreamlike plot - color, costumes, sets, camera all add to the story.
