Funny Games (2007) Review

funny games review

Synopsis: Two psychopathic young men take a family hostage in their cabin. Quick Review: I can’t believe I actually wasted almost 2 hrs of my time on this patronizing, self-satisfied exercise in style. Love him or hate him, Michael Haneke’s movies won’t leave you indifferent. So. kudos for him to create a movie that will have […]

Imprint (2006) Review

Takashi Miikes Imprint review

Synopsis: In the 1800s, an American returns to Japan to find the prostitute he fell in love with, but instead learns of the psychical and existential horror that befell her after he left. Quick Review: This segment of Masters of Horror was considered so violent that it wasn’t even shown on cable. While I’m not cautioning […]

i spit on your grave review

Synopsis: A writer who is brutalized during her cabin retreat seeks revenge on her attackers, who left her for dead.

Art of the Devil 3 (2008) Review

Original Title: Long Khong 2 Synopsis: The youngster Ta returns to his hometown. He misses his mother Daun, who was poisoned by his father Prawase, and soon he learns that his family will use black magic to bring her back. However, Ta's family will quickly discover the price of the black magic. My Quick Review: I was a bit confused while watching Long Khong 2 until I realized this was actually a prequel to the first Long Khong (Art of the Devil 2). The problem with a movie like Art of the devil 3 is that it actually deserved to be b called a Torture Porn movie since we can actually fast forward through most of the movie just to watch the good stuff. With no characters to relate to or empathize with, and a messy script, Art of the Devil 3 only exists for its Black Magic scenes. And then again there is nothing we haven't seen in Art of the Devil 2, and usually not as impressive or gruesome.

Original Title: Long Khong 2 Synopsis: The youngster Ta returns to his hometown. He misses his mother Daun, who was poisoned by his father Prawase, and soon he learns that his family will use black magic to bring her back. However, Ta’s family will quickly discover the price of the black magic. My Quick Review: I […]

The Final (2010) Review

the final review

Synopsis: A group of high school outcasts get revenge on the students that torment them. My Quick Review: The Final is quite similar to Truth or Die, another survival game that I watched recently, in a sense that it never really delivers on what is an exciting pitch. Here we have a bunch of school outcasts […]
