I can't help feeling the real revolution is some way off, but can quote this for the second time today:"You must be the change you want to see in the world" - Gandhi. That says it all, but few are brave enough...

(nl) wrote: when I first read about the snakehead eels I knew it wouldn't be long before some nature run amok film but if the creature was scary enough in real life, the makers of Razortooth had to make them genetically modified to boot!Razortooth is standard low budget killer creature fare. The acting is terrible, the cinematography is amateur and the creature in CG. Thankfully it's not terrible CG work. It's not great CG, but I've seen way worse stuff from this sub genre and the snakehead eel monster is done quite well.Also to the film's benefit is that it does use some physical FX so not everything is CG in nature. While I wish the filmmakers had put a little more thought into the film, when compared to a lot of the nature run amok creature films, Razortooth scores pretty decently. Worth checking out for fans of the sub genre.

(gb) wrote: Even your eyes aren't friends, are they? A local bandit plans to conquer the Midwest with his many men and form an empire; however, to complete this daunting task he must cross a raging river. A local man runs a fairy service across the river with boats he created with his bare hands. When he meets the bandit, he refuses to service the man and allow him to complete his goal. A battle is about to ensue at the river between the boat man and the bandit. "That's a nice gun you've got there. How many indians have you killed with it?" "None. But I've shot and killed plenty of freckled-faced kids." Gordon Douglas, director of Slaughter's Big Rip-off, They Call Me Mister Tibbs, Young at Heart, Lady in Cement, In Like Flint, Them!, and Zombies on Broadway, delivers Barquero. The storyline for this film is unique to the western genre and well presented. The action scenes were solid and the settings were well selected. I love how the characters were presented and the cast delivered wonderful performances. The cast includes Lee Van Cleef, Warren Oates, Forrest Tucker, and Kerwin Mathews. "They're shooting people!" "You live in a lousy neighborhood. You aughta move." My wife and I continue to DVR Lee Van Cleef movies and recently watched this picture. I really appreciated the direction of the film and the unique plot and storyline. These films are generally based on revenge or bandits taking advantage of a small town of minors or squatters. This film's story is more like the ladder; however, it is presented in an original manner. I recommend seeing this if you like westerns. "It's going to take them days to find your head at the bottom of the river." Grade: B+
(us) wrote: Meh. I like old war movies but this film overall was pretty boring. The actors did a good job with what they had to work with but 15 minutes could've easily been cut out of the film having the characters literally discussing the same thing every time a new character walked into the room.

(gb) wrote: Donnie Darko is an inventive cult classic. It's concept is smart and Jake Gyllenhaal delivers a great performance, however, not all aspects of the story really mesh together. Darko deals with time travel, the apocalypse, and death in a cold and clinical way. There is no doubt that even when I was scratching my head at how the feature wrapped up, I couldn't deny the thought provoking themes delivered with such daring. So while Donnie Darko is a hard movie to embrace, it is also a difficult movie to shake off and has earned its status as a cult classic. Rating: 66
