Night of the Living Dead (Special Collector's Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
"They're Going To Get You, Barbara!"


As a space probe was returning from its exploration of the planet Venus, it mysteriously exploded before entering the atmosphere. Was this the real cause for the dead returning from the grave to feeding on the flesh of the living? Well, at least that is what we are led to believe. Seven strangers are trapped in an isolated farmhouse struggling with the horror that awaits them on the outside and the tension that will eventually destroy them on the inside.
They quickly learn the only want to stop these creature is a blow to the head, preferably from a bullet, or to set them on fire. These zombies are slow moving and very defeatable, but their human counterparts are more worried about arguing over who's in charge than fighting back. The tension in this film is tremendous and I even find myself sometimes rooting for the zombies. Is that so wrong???
This low-budget cult-classic set the standards for modern horror. The zombies are simple, but effective. The filming in b&w truly adds to the atmosphere. The score is standard music library material, but very eerie. Romero is one of the few directors that can take a chance with this type of ending and succeed, too bad he didn't do the same with Dawn Of The Dead. This is the first course for anyone wanting to get into horror. Hopefully you will pass and not turn into a zombie.

Stay out of the light


Some of the best acting i have seen in a film in a long time, this should definitly prove that Willem Dafoe is one of the greatest actors of our time. This movie mixes real life situations, such as the filming of the real film Nosferatu, with fiction (or so some think). John Malkovich's character is definitly insane and will not stop at making the most realistic vampire movie ever made. This film is very entertaining from the start, and can make you laugh and give you the creeps at the same time. Wonderful make up jobs, great cinematography. Really a good film.

THE WICKER MAN RETURNS!


The wizards at Anchor Bay have once again brought back a VERY deserving classic film, and given it a proper DVD release! There are two versions out, and you DEFINITELY will want to buy the 2-disc deluxe version, which contains both the watered down 88 minute "theatrical release" (which is really only worth having for the sake of comparison), and the classic 99 minute "complete" version (although my old VHS version runs 102 mins!?) The prints are beautifully mastered and letterboxed! And there is a fantastic 35 minute documentary on the making of the film, which has many latterday interviews with the cast and crew, but alas doesnt have "behind the scenes footage" (since that was apparently buried under a highway in England by some studio oafs), and trailers/radio spots which are pretty cool. It comes in a nice oversized pine display box. Make sure to get the limited edition version... In a year, that's probably the only one youll be able to buy new, and the pine box version will soar in value. Mark my words. ORDER IT TODAY!

They never make movies like this


Real enough that you can believe it all. Nobody is larger than life in this story, none of the events are fantastic in anyway, but taken all together this film is epic. John Huston's best.
Not having this film available on DVD is tragically sad.

Nil by Mouth - movie DVD cover picture
1000000 times more intelligent and powerful than Eastenders


You will not be able to determine that Gary Oldman's first film Nil by Mouth is an acted scripted film rather than a documentary. A great film depicting a working class South London family shot in candid documentary fashion. We focus in on off the cuff conversations, a junkie's (Charlie Creed-Miles) endless search for a fix, a raging alcoholic (Ray Winstone who also starred in Tim Roth's debut The War Zone), and their 4 generation family. As I said I had trouble grasping that the dialogue was actually scripted it's so naturalistic. Such a refreshing contrast to the Hollywood stuff so far removed from naturalistic dialogue it has little to do with reality.
I always considered the soap opera Eastenders to be worthless...kind of weird that the same kind of working class Londoners can be depicted with such depth and power as Nil By Mouth has.
Finally, the psychology behind Ray (Winstone) is delved into to the extent that this brutal guy retains humanity (unlike the Hollywood counterpart which would be a mindlessly cruel non-human monster). It's important to get to the root causes of such things and this great film does (by intentional implication).

BEST ONE YET


I saw X2 on opening day and expected to see an ordianary action movie but after seeing X2, I have a new favorite movie of all time right under The Matrix Reloaded. I could hardly beleive that X2 turned out to be so good. If you havent seen X2 you havent seen an action movie. Plus, the two hottest women in the world, Famke Janssen(Jean Grey) and Halley Berry(Storm). I left the movie theater with the biggest crush on Famke Janssen. I think I'm going to propose to her.

The Ending


***** MAJOR SPOILER *****
I, like alot of people I know who have seen this film, was disappointed with the ending. However, on reading several comments on imdb.com, I realise that I interpreted the ending all wrong and while I thought it was contrived and happy, it wasn't. The last 15 minutes is not all that it seems - see it again or at the very least try and remember (or find out some other way ;)) what the warden (Gideon) is saying as he is imprisoning John, it puts a different slant on things.
