(jp) wrote: The revenge sub-genre of horror is one of the most used which leads to an awful lot of films that are far too similar. Coming up with an interesting concept and back story that hasn't been done before is a difficult task but it's one that writer/director Joe Maggio has succeeded in doing with Bitter Feast, it's just a shame that the execution didn't quite live up to the back story.Peter Grey is a celebrity chef who has his own TV show and is head of an up market restaurant. It all starts to go wrong for him though when notorious food blogger JT Franks writes a scathing review of his food that leads to Grey's TV show being axed and him losing his job at the restaurant. Grey doesn't take this too well and he decides to kidnap Franks and make him endure various food related torture in order to get his own back.In all honesty, the only thing that makes Bitter Feast stand out from the multitude of other revenge film is the concept, forcing your victim to cook food perfectly or to eat potentially dangerous food items to stay alive is certainly a unique one. It's just a shame that the rest of the film is nothing new and in fact a little boring at times, particularly the second act. That being said, there is some nice effects work and the acting from the cast of unknowns is very good. Billed as horror film, I would be more likely to call it a thriller as there are no scares to be found here unless you consider the torture scenes to be chilling. The ending is a frustrating one, at one point it seemed as if Maggio was going to go against the usual Hollywood ending but instead he tacked on a final scene which made it a little more conventional. It's a pity as this would have made the film stand out a little more.In the end, Bitter Feast is a solid enough low budget direct to DVD film. It has an interesting concept and some good scenes but the many bad points prevent it from being memorable. It's certainly worth a look though.

(ca) wrote: You gotta give it to Gary Oldman, the man disappears into every part. However, why the hell is Gary Oldman even in this movie? Why not cast Peter Dinklage or another little person in the role of Matthew McConaughey's dwarf brother? Okay, so despite that, the film is still a bunch of saccharine hokum desperate to pull on your heartstrings but failing miserably due to uneven emotional character arcs that I found infuriating rather than "deep." Tiptoes is only for the curious. Not VF.

(ru) wrote: This simple alien abduction tale seems to lean a lot on nostalgia, and getting a 50s sci-fi horror feel, even though the story isn't that good. The 50s ideology and atmosphere is there for the most part, but not all the way through, and I didn't like LeMat as the main character, he was boring. Overall, it's not bad, but it's not good, and I was bored by it.

The story is still very interesting and the missing eyeballs is always going to freak me out, no matter how bad the CGI is. (Maybe the old school CGI makes the eye scenes scarier...?) That ending still has be questioning if the remaining crew is actually safe.
(ca) wrote: Interesting concept that could have been explored in an interesting way, but it seemed sloppy and filled with empty gaps. So many things were either left unsaid, unexplained, or jammed in with little rhyme or reason. Simon Pegg was Simon Pess, except the rest was like a soapy, fluff version of Life of Walter Mitty.

(jp) wrote: By combining a romantic, albeit melodramatic, love story with breathtaking spectacle, James Cameron brings a historical disaster to vivid life in Titanic, a film that, although flawed, succeeds as a thoroughly entertaining epic.
