Oh, Wes Craven, where is your Nightmare On Elm Street, your Scream, your Serpent and the Rainbow? They are gems of the past. It would seem all we’re left with in the present is My Money -uh, Soul, To Take. Oh, sure, it looks good, and there’s some good mis-direction, but where is the horror?
If you have never heard of the movie Atlantis Down, I don’t blame you, though it probably means you are not one of my Facebook friends. It is a American/Italian low budget Sci Fi Thriller that had its World Premiere at the Commodore Movie Theater in Portsmouth, VA where they flew me out for the event.
“Nothing can prepare you for this”… unless you saw the first movie.
I love monster movies. Love ’em. Been a Godzilla fan since I was a mid single-digit child. I was watching some kind of monster movie when my mom kicked my dad out of the house for good. If there was a film with a monster, giant or otherwise, I’d watch it. And I still do.
If you want a laugh out loud comedy that’s fun for the whole family then boy do I have the film for you. Inside Job is that hilarious.
Ladies and gentleman, ghouls and gravediggers, undead and dead alike, welcome to another wrap-up of Shriekfest! 2010 was a pretty good year, all things considered. First off, I’d like to say that I really like Shriekfest. I have a great time there and I usually make time to see just about everything.
Hey, you know what kids like? Complex morality tales about destiny and the ying and yang of good and evil. And how love is the true motivation to do good, and that one day, half-way through your life, you may reverse your career decision and that will be okay because nature will balance whatever vacuum you created. Wait… what? Kids don’t like that?
So I’m watching this movie and I’m wondering if this is the birth of a new comedy team or just false labor. Good casting, great actors, good director, funny trailer, and… mediocre movie.
Okay this is spoiler heavy but not of the whole movie, because I didn’t see any ONE whole movie.
You know, the only thing that is really unstoppable is the fact that Hollywood will make a glut of mediocre action films that don’t really offend OR excite. This is really just another one of those, so we’ll just throw it on the pile.
