I just saw this movie in Manhattan. It is possibly the worst movie I have seen in a long time. It was pretentious clap trap. Don't waste your money seeing it.
Michael Paul Stephanson and George Hardy turned a miserable defeat into a success with this documentary about Troll 2. I laughed through most of the move and thought how well Stephanson's direction, editing and pacing were well done. The director was smart to focus on Hardy and not on himself, as actor/dentist George Hardy is the best loved character in the cast and the film. Also of notable mention was Stephanson's Skype interview that The Loft displayed on the big screen. When the Loft Cinema's Program Director Jeff Yanc turned the laptop's camera towards the audience, and Michael's face lit up with happiness. I found the Best Worst Movie extremely funny, and I found myself smitten with the documentary.
My review of Splice, a Review of a Modern Day Prometheus
Ill bet any amount of money that every comment on here talking trashon the movie and saying it sucks was probably written by the same guy who wrote this article. Seriously, the author of this article says the movie is boring and there are no lively moments? And that for the uninitiated people who have never read the books will experience hair loss or whatever else he said - this guy is a moron in every sense of the word. Up until the first twilight movie came into theaters I had never heard of the twilight series books, not once ever. I had heard about the movie but never saw previews and didnt know anything about it. My girlfriend hadnt read the books either but saw a couple previews on tv (remember i had never heard of the books and had never seen any previews) After my girlfriend saw the previews on tv she basically had to drag me there. So once we got to the theater i decided to just suck it up and watch the movie since i knew it would make my gf happy. You wanna know what happens next? My eyes were glued on the theater screen - right when it got over i begged my girlfriend to stay and watch the next showtime just to see what we catch the 2nd time around that we missed the first - on our way home i immediately stopped by barnes and noble bookstore and bought all 4 twilight books. Immediately once i got home I sat down on my bed and basically read the whole rest of the day and night only stopping for some snacks , cigarettes, and using the bathroom. Within the time period from the first twilight movie coming into theaters to when the second one came into theaters i probably read all 4 books 20 different times and saw the movie probably 10 times, and the same went for new moon (and for new moon i waited in line for like 10 hours to have good seats) Just because i gave the movie a chance with not knowing anything at all about it - it got me hooked, obsessed. so seriously dont sit there and try and say that uninitiated people who only go off the movie will get hair loss, because that is nothing close to the truth in every sense of the world. you say this movie sucks and that rob and kristen cant act? well maybe you should do some research and see how much money all 4 books have taken in and how much money twilight and new moon have taken in - also do some research on how many fans (all ages) are addicted to twilight. there is a reason movies make a ton of money, thats because there good. so honestly you should delete this article if possible because all its doing is making you sound retarded. the twilight sage is AMAZING in every sense of the world.
p.s. your probably just talking crap on the twilight saga because your some 20 - 30 - 40 year old, etc. (or however old you are) small weak little boy whos trying to convince his readers that hes a macho bad boy, because in your eyes any guy that likes the twilight saga this much must be gay and all i have to say is that yes there probably are some gay guys obsessed with twilight but also i would bet any amount of money that more than 75% of the guys age 18 and older that are obsessed with twilight are 100% straight. so what if twilight is a vampire love story? guys like it because its extremely good and fun to watch and read, not because there gay, because its extremely good.
thanks buddy for reading this, cant wait to hear back what you have to say back to this comment
Your review is AWESOME, i'd rather read your review all ove again for the next 130 minutes then to watch twilight again, totally agree with that Taylor Lautner is sweeeet!!
I saw this movie and it was hillarious. Not intentionally of course. And personally I would have been happier if Bella and Edward had taken this moive (and the next few) off and the whole movie (and the movies to come) were about the fabulousness of Taylor Lautner's abs.
"With such an odd subject at her disposal"??? WHAT is so "odd" about the great Townes Van Zandt? Maybe to some surface-level prole who doesn't understand (or is frightened by) real, great art, maybe Townes and his work might be "odd" or inaccessible, but I have a hard time digesting anything in this review.
By the way: you're the one who is wrong; Townes was the greatest songwriter ever!
A movie about an illegal alien attempting to obtain citizenship by marrying a U.S. citizen? How cute.
Meanwhile, in Arizona...
Hey...good call. Definitely should've flip-flopped the wedding.
I agree! Samantha was totally cringe-worthy in this film... I had to cover my eyes & mouth many times she came on the screen acting like a 12 year old, or talking like a dirty whore. The part where she goes nuts after she drops her bag (and subsequently condoms) in the market, is embarrassing! Liza's act was the best part of the movie, and my main thought was that the gay wedding should have been at the end instead of the start, so to leave some sort of good impression before the credits roll.
Usually when you pan directors you come up with your own insults and whether I disagree, you are original and entertaining. But calling Michael Moore's editing manipulative? That has been used so many times that there are five patents out on it. I think you owe someone money for that one. And when you call Error Morris "self-serving" because he has a style only makes you sound like a jealous film school drop out.
Otherwise, I agree that Gibney is the best of the three, but they all have their place. I hope everyone goes to see this one. It is appalling and diminishes any hope in our democracy that I had left, almost.
This has to be the funniest, most brilliant review I've ever read...
"and the pale-face makeup and hairdo make him look like some sort of anemic hipster clown."
I'm still laughing...
Gee, it sounds pretty good... But at the same time, the premise doesn't really sound that revolutionary. Glad you liked it though.
i love this movie it is the best horror movie ever! Everyone i know said that at the first 5 or 10 minuites they had to walk out the theater because it was so scary!!! but i watched it and isabelle was awesome!!! i wish that i could be in a movie like that. i wish i can be an actress like her and everyone else!!! i want to know how you made isabell look old!!! that was awesome!!! i hope there will be another orphan!!! thats how good it is!!!i wanna be an actress just like her!!! i wish i could meet her. but ill probably be a little freaked out around her because of that movie she made!!! well i think the movie is awesome and keep on making those movies isabelle!!!
I have to agree that BOTH the books and the movie sucks.
My sister is a huge Twi-fan and fell in love with the series after she watched "Twilight." To see what the hype was all about, i watched the movie. I think i aged ten years by watching it, cause it dragged on for so long! The only action in the movie lasted about five secounds and i felt ripped off! I tried to read the first, hem hem, 'novel' but i was bored out of my skull by the secound chapter. If i try to read the rest of it, I'm pretty sure I would end up blowing my brains out.
The really sad part of all this is... these are the ONLY BOOKS MY SISTER HAS EVER READ and she says that they are the best books ever.
I have no problem saying that I am a bookworm, because I can seriously lay down some books, but i wish i could convince my sister to try other authors.
Oh and for you Twi-teens out there. I have an author for you! SHERRILYN KENYON
Paronormal Romance- "Dark Hunter" novels- Vampires with a twist! All her books are AWSOME! And you don't have to read them in any order to get the story either.
I like the books and so i watch the movies when they come out. I enjoy the fact that they are one of my favourite books brought to life ( although in a critic sense i don't think the books are massive grammy winners i just like the easy reading and romantic story), but im not going to delude myself into thinking that the acting is brilliant. You have got to admit they need to cheer up i mean do they ever actually have a laugh. At least in the books they are playful and well normal. I just wish stewart was happier, i don't even know where this too pale stuttering awkward girl has come from because she aint this bad in the books, o and edward is much more cocky and natural around bella, he's too intense in the films.
Sorry Bongo, I have no idea who you are!
P.S. James Digiovanna, if you are out there, reading this, and if you think you know who I am, EMAIL ME!!! Tell me about your farts!!!
WTF.... which stands for, "Why the fart?"
Does the fart somehow lead to the beheading?
I want to see a mainstream Hollywood movie about the repercussions of farts.
I've waded through many a self-absorbed and contorted reading into Eraserhead, but this is the best summation of the film I have read. Thanks.
