Movie Reviews

Catching up on some Netflix action. "Mullholland Drive". This is the worst piece of shit I've ever seen. There is nothing redeeming about it. Acting forced, cinematography hackish, story contrived, etc. Not one character acted in a rational manner, ever. And I knew what I was getting into with a David Lynch film, don't get me wrong. I just thought he'd have gotten better over the years. There's no more rationality in this film than there is in any thirteen year old boy's notebook drawings of the samurai-dinosaur monster with tank treads for feet, 15 steel-plated arms and a machine gun head horn.

I also watched "Fear" last weekend. Starring a svelt William Petersen. You might know a puffier version him as the woodenly portrayed Gil Grissom of the worst crime drama currently on television, CSI. Knowing that, you might think he sucked in Fear also, but he was pretty good. One line plot synopsis: two dudes go equally nuts in two very different ways, exploring the depths of certain male instincts. Not a bad film. Also starred Marky Mark as the bad guy. Horribly acted, but it actually quite suits the character, so maybe he's a genius?

Up next? The new and old versions of "The Ladykillers" and "The Manchurian Candidate". Stay tuned.
