This movie is fuuuuucking crazy. Such a morbid satire. Imagine breakfast club but with black humor and everyone is killing themselves and social commentary that doesn't quite make sense. Haven't seen anything quite like it.
Just watched this movie. It wasn't anything like I expected it would be, but that's a good thing. I really enjoyed it. 8.5/10

That movie was amazing. Bardem was my favorite actor. With so little lines he couldnt really mess it up though!

I just came back from this

The Descendants

It was good overall, nothing special really. Not much variability from any other light handed dramas that you've seen before: sorrow throughout, predictable storyline, comedic relief when it starts getting a bit sad, etc. Clooney had some fine acting moments, Beau Bridges played a good supporting role, but apart from that, 'twas nothing special. But it was a nice film to take my grandmother to and she really enjoyed it, so that was worth it. 6/10

I have probably seen that around 20 times, love it to bits.



The main problem with this film is that I couldn't give a **** about any of the main characters and whether they survived or not. The aliens were terrible too. Worth a watch and a few funny lines but it was a let down.


Films have a three act structure and this is the very definition of that and it suffers because of it. First act is domestic drama, second act is brutal action as the hitmen are at work (the hammer scene in the kitchen is gut wrenching) and the third act.... well I won't give anything away but the film goes off on a truly bizarre way.

The acting and direction is damn good and it is a very well made low budget film but I can't see myself watching this one again.

So...



What did I just watch? I've seen it twice now, actually, and I guess I need to bounce thoughts off of others to get a grip on this art film and where it's coming from/going.

Anyone else seen The Holy Mountain? It seems perfect for an acid trip. It probably was made by people on acid.

Oh, and I saw Tucker and Dale vs. Evil and enjoyed myself. It was quite entertaining. I got a couple good laughs in...

That is the most "WTF Movie" I've ever seen. Ridiculous.

I can't see the pic but I am guessing it's Jodorowsky's Holy Mountain? I have been wanting to see this for years along with El Topo. I have his only foray into Horror (even though it is much more than that) Santa Sangre and it is as near to art I have come across especially in the Horror genre.

I advise you to check out Santa Sangre if you get the chance.

I've only seen Santa Sangre once, over a decade and a half ago, but it still sticks with me. Such a fantastic movie.
