(nl) wrote: I'll never claim that this is a masterpiece, although it's a whopping good movie with terrific action and rich characters. More important, and more personal, this movie is essentially the Big Bang of my life. I saw it on TV when I was about 12 and from it sprang my serious interest in film. I'd say without the Beatles and "Beau Geste" I would be a completely different human.
(br) wrote: This one is brand new on DVD. I watched this movie expecting it to be the most horrible vampire movie in a while. I mean: 0% rating, worthy of a scathing review. But after seeing it, it actually isn't all that horrible.I looked around Rotten Tomatoes for other reviews, only to find that most of them actually belong to a 1995 movie of the same name starring Alyssa Milano. Wonder how that affected the ratings. All I know is that this 2013 movie is not a remake.Charlotte (Sharon Hinnendael) is a new girl at a co-ed campus. She is a dhampir, but doesn't know it yet. She only knows she has vivid nightmares. Somehow, her fencing coach is a vampire. It seems like she's drawn to him, to this campus. Her story is rooted centuries ago and the movie tries to tie all the proceedings to the past.Hinnendael does a commendable job at portraying the different sides of Charlotte. Unfortunately for the movie, this cannot be said for all of the other actors. It's safe to say that Hinnendael is the highlight of this movie. If she can manage to get into some more prominent roles, she might be able to build a pretty decent career for herself.The story gets a nice, paced setup in this movie. It doesn't go too fast or too slow. For about 70% of the movie, the pacing is fine. It has a good story-arch albeit with some questionable and superfluous sidesteps, like the hazing scene and subsequent lesbian sex scene that do not really add to the main story. The end feels rushed and not everything gets tied up as nice as I would have liked to see. But still this movie deserves more than a 30% score.Pros: Believable lead, okay to good production, great cinematography.Cons: Inconsistent, predictable but unfinished storylineVerdict: Meh.
(au) wrote: I remember when this came out that it was released the same time as an almost identical undersea thriller, "DeepStar Six," which was also essentially "Alien" under water. This film was the superior of the two, although both are far inferior to James Cameron's "The Abyss," which would be released just a few months later.Peter Weller leads a crew of undersea miners who find themselves trapped with a scary monster on board. It's completely by-the-numbers horror and completely unoriginal. However, it' gamily directed by George P. Cosmatos ("Tombston") and written by David Webb Peoples ("Unforgiven" "Blade Runner") and Jeb Stuart (The Fugitive). There's also a better cast than the film deserves including Weller, Richard Crenna, Amanda Pays, Daniel Stern, Ernie Hudson, Hector Elizondo and Meg Foster. There's decent production design by Ron Cobb and solid special effect by Stan Winston. There's also a good score by "Alien" composer Jerry Goldsmith. Given all the solid talent in front of and behind the camera here, this film should have been a whole lot better.
