I shouldn’t have teased you like that. I shouldn’t have let you think there was a way out of this.
This is your one opportunity to do something that no one has ever done before, and that no one will copy throughout human existence. And if nothing else, you will be remembered as the one guy who ever did this. This one thing.
Gremlins was awesome, original, funny, scary. I wish Hollywood makes Gremlins 3 (I’ve read about it in some sites, but it looks like it’s nothing but rumors), though to tell you the truth, I don’t think Gremlins 2 was nearly as good as the original movie.
I also used to think that the girl in that movie was the most beautiful girl in the whole world. I was young an innocent, and it wasn’t until years later that I found out that same girl, Phoebe Cates, had done a couple of movies (Paradise and Fast Times at Ridgemont High) where she showed all of her features. She’s 43 now, but she still looks great.

I was looking for the famous pool scene from Fast Times, but I had no luck. Well, aslmost no luck. I did find this video, which is great anyway.

This is the story of Lucy, played by the gorgeous Emily Browning. Sleeping Beauty is a story of a student that takes quite an unusual job: she gets drugged, she goes to sleep. During that time, old men will seek experiences that require her absolute submission. Obviously, she has to know what happens when she’s asleep, and I’m guessing that’s what the movie is all about.
The premise doesn’t sound so interesting, but the trailer shows a cold and creepy movie, so I think I’d love to watch it. One of this year’s Cannes Film Festival’s Selections, this movie written and directed by Julia Leigh looks like one of those movies I have to watch.
Bonus: Sleeping Beauty, the site
The Trenches is an animated short inspired by Zack Snyder’s upcoming movie Sucker Punch. It briefly shows the human side of the zombie soldiers that the girls in the movie will be fighting against.
It’s a nice little teaser, but I really can’t wait for the actual movie, which is in theaters on March 25.
Bonus: Emily Browning – some scenes from The Uninvited
I watched a classic italian horror film yesterday. It’s La Chiesa, a 1989 movie directed by Michele Soavi and produced by Dario Argento. The plot is simple to follow: some templar knights kill an entire village that is supposed to be cursed, and a church is built over their dead bodies to prevent the evil to escape. Flash forward to present day, where several events happen that result in the demons finally appearing, and a bunch of people trapped inside the church.
I have to say that I really like the first part of the movie, where the knights go and kill everybody. It was beautifully made, and had a great and gory ambience. I wished the entire movie would take place in that time period. I specially liked the scene where a beautiful girl offers some water to a knight and gets killed for being a witch. That girl, whose eyes appear in the image I posted above is Olivia Cupisti. I assume is Barbara Cupisti’s sister (very well known for her roles in italian horror movies), but there isn’t really any information about her, as it seems this was her first and only movie.
I got bored halfway through, and didn’t really care too much about the movie. It seemed to move to slowly. Scene after scene it seemed like something amazing and horrifying was going to happened, but it never did. Maybe it’s just that classic horror movies are like that, they aren’t really scary anymore by today’s standards.
Either way, I have to say that this is one of the movies you have to watch if you’re a true fan of horror movies (specially if you are a fan of classic italian horror movies). So maybe you want to go buy the dvd: The Church dvd or maybe not, it’s your choice.
I really want to see this movie. It looks fantastic, and it has Olivia Wilde in it. I hope it’s a good movie, although I’m expecting it’ll be the soulless, dumb, bad kind of movie that Hollywood makes every time from something that has a lot of potential. Either way, it might be worth seeing it just for the special effects, and Olivia Wilde
Also, I don’t remember the first TRON movie. I think I liked it, but I was a kid. Maybe it’s time to rewatch it.
I know the Resident Evil movies haven’t been the greatest in movie history, but I have to admit I like all of them. In fact, I rewatch them from time to time.
I’m pretty glad there’s a new one coming out in September, the fourth in the series starred by Milla Jovovich. I don’t know if it’s going to be any good, but judging it by its trailer, it’s going to have lots of cool action scenes. I hope there’s a lot of zombies and big freaking monsters in this one, and they skip character development.
Jill Valentine (played by the lovely Sienna Guillory) is back in the 4th installment of the series. At least it seems like that, as she’s listed as part of the cast in the imdb site, and apparently, Milla Jovovich confirmed it via twitter. She said: “So to answer many of your questions in one fell swoop, yes! The gorgeous and talented Sienna Guillory is back as Jill Valentine in RE4!!!”. If this is true, then I’ll definitely watch this movie.
Now that I think about it, I still haven’t seen Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. There’s a part of me that really wants to go see it, and another part of me just doesn’t care. Maybe because Tim Burton’s movies haven’t been that good in the last few years.
On the other side, for some reason, the artbook of the movie looks quite interesting. It’s 256 pages of beautiful high resolution photos, film stills, and pictures of the scuptures and art developed for the movie. And I do have to admit, no matter how bad a Tim Burton movie can get, his visual style is always impressive.
Anyway, go read a better review than mine and see some pictures of the book at Parka Blogs (one of the best sites for artbook reviews), or just go and buy the book from amazon: Alice in Wonderland: A Visual Companion (Disney Editions)
Time for more old movies. This movie was made in 1982. That’s 28 years ago. I guess that’s old, isn’t it?
Oh, Cat People. This is one of those movies I loved when I was way younger. It has the beautiful Natassja Kinski in it. That’s reason enough to watch it.
Malcolm McDowell is in it, too, which is awesome. And if that’s not enough, Annette O’Toole is in it, too. For the younger generation, she’s Superman’s mom in Smallville. But Annette is pretty young in this movie, and is damn sexy in it.
Cat People is not a masterpiece. It’s a bit entertaining, and I just like it for the nostalgic value. The plot is quite unrealistic and some aspects of it are just there just to provide some eroticism: there are people among us that can turn into Panthers….specially when they have sex…their problem is that they can’t turn human again unless they kill somebody. Irena (Natassja Kinki) is one of them; her brother Paul (Malcolm McDowell) is another one of these cat people. That’s it. There’s nudity, there’s blood, there’s dead prostitutes and wild panthers, naive cops and an unsatisfying ending.
Buy the dvd: Cat People
