Deeply disappointing

Reviewed by on

As his other genuine films show, Tati is a genius. This is his very worst work, a bad Swedish TV show when he is sadly long past his best. Out of kindness and respect to Tati, one should not watch this at all.

Nothing is what it seems

Reviewed by on

And neither is this film which was marketed as a spy thriller - recruit versus recruiter, rookie versus mentor - but is actually a human drama involving a bereft son searching for answers about his father who disappeared years prior to the events of the story and who may have been a prominent CIA agent other than just a Shell Oil worker.

Violent in parts, funny in some and all parts add up to a great whole with Colin Farrell, Al Pacino, Bridget Moynahan and Gabriel Macht as the stars giving it their all.

Enjoyable movie...Missing Features

Reviewed by on

It chapter 2 is a very enjoyable adventure thriller. I am reluctant to refer to it as a horror movie as I did not find it very scary. Chapter 1 is the far superior movie, but I still had a tonne of fun with chapter 2.

Unfortunately, the South African blu ray of chapter 2 is missing disc 2 of the set, which includes most of the bonus features. Therefore, this copy only includes the directors commentary.

not as expected

Reviewed by on

I should probably have watched this original Ring before the American version- this version is very quiet and focuses on the lady journalists search for the story/video. The US version is much more of a permeating evil atmosphere with more detail in 'found' video and the child's story.

DVD Faulty

Reviewed by on

Quality disappointment. DVD has faulty sound and image. Problem is if you buy a couple of DVD's you can not view them all to check the condition. By the time you watch them it is too late for return. Lesson, never order more than 2 DVD's (especially local) to allow you enough time to watch and return if faulty. I prefer overseas DVD's because their quality is high and never disappoints.

Wasted potential for a great T.V. show!

Reviewed by on

Don't believe that five star rated review. This show had great potential, that's it show creators and so called writing team ruined for cheap shock and seriously badly written plot.
Characters are so unrecognizable in this season ( as well for the last two to three seasons previous ) thanks to some of the laziest writing I have seen, in a T.V. show in long time.

Great visuals and production design. Acting was also good with what they were given.

Spend your money and time elsewhere. Not worth it. Main Books and side books are much, much better by George RR Martin, rather buy those!

A Horror Classic in its Own Right

Reviewed by on

This is Rob Zombie as a director at his finest. This film is both heavily influenced by old school horror classics (such as Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and very unique at the same time. There's something special about what Zombie captures on screen - the actors couldn't possibly be picked better and have an on-screen chemistry that is unmatched in horror nowadays; the juxtaposition of violence and gore and humour is so well done that neither cancels the other out; scenes are so finely accentuated by its score and music picked by Zombie and Tyler Bates, and that, coupled with perfectly timed slow motion effects, adds a whole new atmosphere to something simplistic. While this movie certainly isn't everyone's cup of tea, I couldn't recommend it more.

Winter Came, wasn't that big a deal, and left with a whimper.

Reviewed by on

All the characters were ruined by this season and its terrible writing. The acting and visuals were top-notch. Everything else was rushed and poorly plotted. I could go on and on about every character and plot point, but this final season is a dark mark on the reputation of what could have been the greatest TV series of all time.

ROB ZOMBIE RETURNS TO HIS MOST FAMOUS CHARACTERS IN THREE FROM HELL, THE FIREFLY FAMILY.
AFTER ALMOST BEING SHOT TO DEATH , OTIS DRIFTWOOD , BABY FIREFLY AND CAPTAIN SPAULDING SPENDS THE NEXT YEAR IN THE INTENSIVE CARE UNIT CLINGING TO THEIR WICKED LIVES. AFTER A " SATANIC RECOVERY" THEY ARE PUT ON TRIAL AND DESPITE PROTESTS OF THEIR FREEDOM BY LOCAL FANS , ALL THREE ARE SENTENCED TO LIFE IN PRISON, IN ADDITION TO THE FINAL VERDICT CAPTAIN SPAULDING IS EXECUTED VIA LETHAL INJECTION A FEW YEARS INTO HIS LIFE SENTENCE

SHERI MOON ZOMBIE IS THE HIGHLIGHT OF THIS FILM SHE GIVES HER BEST PERFORMANCE YET, IN ADDITION TO EXCELLENT ACTING FROM THE REST OF THE CAST. BABY FIREFLY IS EVEN MORE CRAZY AFTER 10 YEARS IN PRISON. SHE EVEN CHASES A NAKED WOMAN DOWN A SUBURBAN NEIGHBORHOOD STREET AND VIOLENTLY STABS HER TO DEATH ON SOME OLD LADY'S LAWN, THAT SHOULD GIVE YOU AN IDEA. THE LOOK AND FEEL OF THE FILM IS EXCELLENT AND IT HAS BOTH THE ELEMENTS OF THE PREVIOUS 2 FILMS, THE DEVILS REJECTS AND HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES. FANS ARE GOING TO HAVE A HARD TIME CHOOSING A FAVORITE BETWEEN THE 3 FILMS. ANOTHER GREAT HIGHLIGHT IS THAT THE FILM'S PLOT IS SPLIT INTO 3 PARTS. PRISON MOVIE, HOME INVASION MOVIE AND A MEXICAN MOVIE. WELL DONE ROB

ROB ZOMBIE CONTINUES TO USE HIS BUDGET EFFECTIVELY, DESPITE NOT BEING GIVEN MASSIVE BUDGETS FOR HIS FILMS. THIS IS DEFINITELY A STEP UP FROM HIS LAST FILM 31 . FANS WILL REJOICE IN THIS LATEST INSTALMENT OF THE FIREFLY TRILOGY AND THEY SHOULD AS ITS FUN TO SEE HOW THESE CHARACTERS HAVE CHANGED DUE TO THEIR TIME IN PRISON
ENJOY

A South African classic: Also known as The Winners

Reviewed by on

Allegedly autobiographical in tone – specifically concerning the life and career of director Emil Nofal - this production is the intense, draining and powerful story of Will Maddox who is a winner at everything and in everything. His almost insane desire to win at all costs eventually causes him to lose everything, including his family who are driven away by his crazed desire of success and all it brings.

Also known internationally as My Way (the Frank Sinatra theme song is used throughout the film) and very weirdly as Super Jocks in the United States, this is truly one of the all-time classic South African productions, with excellent photography, music, editing and superb acting. With Joe Stewardson, Marie du Toit, Richard Loring, Tony Jay, John Higgins, Ken Leach, Madeline Usher and Jenny Mayer. Followed five years later by a sequel The Winners 2 (a.k.a Again My Way) directed by Jans Rautenbach.

Locally made with a European feel

Reviewed by on

This movie appears to be made and funded locally with a number of actors recognisable. This makes the movie a guilty-pleasure of sorts for me.

Willow street has a compelling story (if a bit disjointed and hard cut at certain points), it has some great scares (quite a number of jump scares) and creepy scenes with an engaging and semi-original plot.

The Effects are great in this movie and the cgi has been put to good use without being jarring.

Overall a good way to spend 90 minutes. Not a stellar movie, but good. The feel of the movie reminds me a lot of older European horror from the late 80's / early 90s with dubbing and characters often being caricatures of who they are meant to be.

Overall a sold effort that will not disappoint unless you nitpick all the faults (of which there are a number). The pacing is fairly good with the movie being watchable until the end.
