Dawn of the Dead (Widescreen Unrated Director's Cut) - movie DVD cover picture
Zombie horror as it should be.


Finally, a new zombie horror flick is added to the catalog, and IT'S ACTUALLY A GOOD ONE!! Not only is it good, this film is genuinely frightening. Here's why:
? This flick does a really good job of illustrating what it would be like to be among the last survivors, watching the world as you know it become overrun with the living dead as you slowly run low on ammo, food, supplies, and hope for survival.
? The zombies here aren't the somnambulic wimps from the original Romero movies. These are the savage, snarling, biohazard blood-spitting monsters like the ones in 28 Days Later. These zombies aren't plodding slowly along and moaning while people are thinking "Why don't you just run past them?" No.... these zombies are demonic, feral ghouls that run after you, attack with full force, and rip you apart.
I highly recommend this film. I've seen it twice now, and I'll probably see it again at least once before it closes in the theaters. You can bet I'll buy the DVD the day it comes out.
I'm a huge zombie movie fan. My favorites were previously the 1990 remake of "Night Of The Living Dead" (directed by the great Tom Savini) and the original "Day Of The Dead" which is one of the three original Romero flicks.
This remake of Dawn Of The Dead is now my favorite zombie movie.

American Psycho (Unrated Version) - movie DVD cover picture
My Film Listserv Was Right In Recommending This


I was unable to make it beyond 50 pages in the incredibly grisly novel version of "American Psycho" written by Ellis. However, my film group assured me that the movie version was an utter transformation of the novel and Christian Bale, as the lead, a major acting discovery. The group was right. Rewritten with black humor at its core, this tale of the consummate yuppie of the 1980s, who is also a serial killer, held me spellbound, when I wasn't LOL. Bale is also interviewed on the DVD version and you can barely tell he is the same person as the character he plays, Patrick Bateman. This is not a mad-slasher film like "Nightmare On Elm Street". So if you are looking for that kind of film, this will not fit the bill. This is an exploration of the dark underside of a Harvard educated, privileged young CEO and his cohorts on Wall Street and the "horror" is how right the film feels. There is the issue raised of how real Bateman's murders are versus a complete breakdown of his psyche taking place instead. However, this becomes one of the interesting points to debate after seeing this film and is not easily answered. I'm keeping my eye peeled for the next film Christian Bale makes as he is an actor who could do marvelous work in the years ahead.

Code 46 - movie DVD cover picture
The Most Emotionally Wracking Dystopian Future Movie Ever!


"Code 46" is a largely unknown movie here in Malaysia. Most folks here haven't even heard of "Blade Runner" or Philip K. Dick. They loved "The Matrix" because they thought it was "cool" (the all-encompassing word for hip and stylish but really another of those words that mean absolutely nothing in this blank generation) but I suspect it had a lot more to do with Keanu Reeves and marketing. "Code 46" is far better than any of the above. Of course, I know that I'm in the minority here - I think that "Dark City" and "Thirteenth Floor" were far superior to "Matrix" also.

"Code 46" is set in a dystopic future where the Sphinx Corporation have taken over the world. By the world, of course, we really mean, the CITIES since the undesirables (the diseased, the genetically inferior, etc.) are outcasts outside the CITIES. The world as we know it is a network of cities and the entrance checkpoint to every city requires the entrant to be equipped with a papelle (some kind of "genetic" passport, if you will). Violation of "Code 46" means that people with similar traits in their genetic structure have babies together - thus producing potentially genetic-inferiors. Tim Robbins play an agent investigating a factory in Shanghai producing fake papelles. Samantha Morton plays the girl working in that factory who is responsible for the fake papelles (which she then sells to the undesirables so that they too can live in cities or travel to other cities). They both have similar genetic traits (owing to excessive cloning activities in the previous generations). Problem was, Tim and Samantha fell in love and had a one-night-stand. From that point onwards, it's a painful love story of two people trying to beat the system by loving each other and trying to break the brainwashing, memory-tampering, forced-abortion techniques of the System (in this case, the Sphinx Corp).

Throughout the movie, people speak a sort of "universal" language - somewhat a mish-mash mixture of English, French, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, and everything else. Everyone uses the same papelles to enter cities. Everyone accepts that if the Sphinx decides on anything, there must be a good reason behind it. Everyone consults the Sphinx for "permission" to fall in love with each other (by taking a "genetic" test for potential similarities). In fact, the only people who seemed to behave like people are the outcasts who long to enter into cities. Problem is, they live in the lawless, diseased, desert-like conditions outside the cities. The whole thing comes off like a nightmarish version of what our world seemed to be falling headlong into. This is a world where basic things like love, sex, reproduction, realizing one's dreams, etc. are regulated by an all-seeing System.

Finally, I like it that it doesn't try to be "preachy" with endless exposition like "The Matrix" - the viewer is simply presented directly with this "world" and you have to try your best to understand the whole thing (somewhat like Enki Bilal's "Immortel", if you see the parallels). And it has a love story in the middle of it. It's probably the only love story that ever made me weep at the end of a film.

Full House is finally being released on DVD!


Full House instantly became popular when it premiered in 1987. By the time it ended in the mid-90s, it had become very popular. This is one of my favorite shows ever! It's about a widower, Danny Tanner (Bob Saget), whose wife has recently died. He is trying to raise his three daughters, baby Michelle (Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), and D.J. (Candace Cameron). Danny's best friend Joey (Dave Coulier) and his brother-in-law Jesse (John Stamos) also move into their San Francisco house to lend a hand. This is a great show for all ages, even kids! This DVD set features a never-before seen pilot episode, a commentary, and a trivia track, besides all the episodes from the first season of the show. I highly recommend this to all!

Perfect Conclusion!!


Ahhh- I really can't fathom the idea that people are walking away from this in disappointment.. What more are people expecting?Lemme guess - answers, right? Don't be afraid to use your brains, people; some things are worth pondering.People also have to get over this expectation that the sequels should outshine the original. Face it people, YOU LEARNED WHAT THE MATRIX IS IN THE 1ST MOVIE! THAT PART IS OVER NOW.To those who are anticipating that LOTR: Return of the King is going to be tonnes better... It's not. I've read the lotr books many a time and as much as I like the story, what is the 3rd film going to have going for it? Good, Evil, War, Peace, Love.. All the same fundamentals except no thinking or insight required.I'll pay to see Return of the King and love it, but not as much as I've loved this Matrix trilogy!Also, untouchable effects!!

Virtually Faultless


I had deep trepidations about this adaptatation of one of my fondest tales. All I can say is wow! Riveting scenery, characters with depth, stunning effects. This movie has it all. Minor changes in the story help to move it along. Ian McKellen as Gandalf is fantastic, but Elija Wood steals the movie as Frodo. This movierecreates the sense of wonder I has all those many years ago when I first read the books.

The Remains of the Day (Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
one of the best movies I've ever seen


A subtle, sophisticated work of art that captures a fleeting historical moment through the lives of people caught in its midst. There is irony, tragedy, drama, symbolism, nostalgia, time-distortion, and a sense of impending Fate for the characters portrayed. The acting is brilliant, the direction masterly. An all time great film, to be valued as a favorite book in one's library, for intimate repeated viewing with choice friends, especially those who appreciate quiet moments more than social chatter.
