the walking dead
perfect zombie tv movie, from the best graphic novel of the last years.
pretty loyal to the original, yet with some changes. pure Romerian zombie, lots of talk, adaptation, survival of the fittest, and massive zombie scenes. there is plenty of gore for tv standards, but it is not a gore movie. perfect effects by nicotero.

I'm about 30 minutes into Severed Ways and it's so gash I'm considering giving up already. Whoever compared this with Valhalla Rising couldn't have had the vast difference in quality in mind. And then the crap dialogue which sounds like a parody on Max von Sydow. Probably the shittiest film I've seen this year. Avoid this piece of shit!

On another note. Why is it that hardly any films manage to make supposedly dead people look dead? I've seen quite a few dead people and they don't look like they do on film. On film they still have skin with colour as opposed to the grey/yellowish skin the actual dead have. And then the eyes. Dead eyes look NOTHING like the eyes of the living. They are empty and blurry. Not unlike the eyes of a dead fish. Is it so hard to slap on a bit of make up and have some contacts made?

Hah, indeed! Utterly laughable adolescent "black metal" viking fantasy. I mean, headbanging in the forest??

That's the moment when all my doubts were removed. After the monks appeared I decided to suffer no longer.

I went straight into Kanal. Andzrej Wajda's film about the 1944 Warsaw Uprising. This film is old and one would expect it to perhaps not have stood the test of time but it's in a totally differen't league to the above mentioned turd. In some parts, due to its age, it is a bit wooden but it has a convincing and eerie feel. The sewer scenes are klaustrophobic and oppressive, even apocalyptic in parts. Those of us who know the bleak history of Poland know that the let up never came. Although communist censorship wouldn't have allowed for that to be expressed too openly Wajda manages to sneak in what's ahead on at least two occasions and he does it beautifully. I haven't seen many of Wajda's films, only this and Katyn (which is EXCELLENT). I will have to remedy that.

To harp on about the dead. I know we have a film producer on the forum so I put it to you, why are most films so awful at portraying the dead visually? With death being such a huge and reccurring theme it's strange why most film creators can't make it look more convincing.

VALHALLA RISING

d/l'd a torrent. pretty good. i'll probably rent it whenever it gets released on US dvd. i think i'll like it much more on a larger screen, a more comfortable chair, & no headphones. pretty wicked violence.

will be watching  A SERBIAN FILM & GRAPHIC SEXUAL HORROR in a day or 2...

any torrent recommendations?

Watched Valhalla Rising. Pretty good. With decent sound and video projection on canvas, the movie gets probably much more justice than on computer. It has such an artistic edge to it, that whole thing kind of moves backwards. Intensity is more in the beginning, and chapters move into less action paced, more slow landscape and dreamy sequences. Good.

Bitch Slap
Oh my god. I know it will suck, but still rented dvd. Someone said it is re-make of Faster Pussycat kill kill, but fuck. How much do I hate the computer effects in movies. That was the thing in Valhalla Rising, which I didn't like. The kind of glow & spot lights generated by effects. You see characters glowing from background or something like area of eyes is glowing like cheap photoshop effect... pff.. Well, this Bitch Slap is supposed to be tribute to all the b-movies, and while the first credits go on, you can see lots of short clips from various cult movies with strong female figures. But when movie itself goes on, mix together some Charlie's Angels movies with hip-hop video aesthetics, and that's pretty much what it is. Violence? Yeah, some. Tits? Yeah, some. But I dare to say, I probably have more tits and violence in my body when I take shower.

The Killer Inside Me
Another rental dvd. Late 40's texas police officer turn out to be psycho killer. It's pretty good actually. I do dislike the Casey Affleck's faggy voice and all that, but instead of the cool violence of Bitch Slap, in this movie, violence is blunt and realistic. Psycho gives intense fucking face beating to Jessica Alba. Kicks shit out of Kate Hudson until she pisses under herself while dying. It is labeled to be "thriller", yet I don't know should it maybe be black comedy/drama? Anyways, there are some bizarre moments of the psycho having flashbacks of his half brother raping 5 year old girl in backseat of car. And flashback of him as kid slapping and beating his mother (who later died). Mother revealing her masochistic desires, showing bruises how daddy spanks her and how the little boy should do it to her as well.
Decent story is build with little surprises. Nothing spectacular, but wins the bitch slap type failures any day.

Carlos - French biopic with plenty of sex and violence on the Jackal, mastermind of Mraxist/anti-zionist political wreckage in the 70s, with connection with everybody who enjoyed planting bombs in those days.

Intense, and another great French effort after Mesrine and Marchall's movies.

THE WALKING DEAD turned out pretty good. Strong on characters. Looking forward to seeing it again on dvd without commercials & better image-quality as I don't get the AMC HD channel.

Joe Dante's PIRANHA; found a used copy. Always been  a favorite. Wish I could find HUMANIODS FROM THE DEEP used.

walking dead by kirkman is the current best graphic novel around

Life During Wartime
Which is basically Happiness part 2. It has different actors, than original Happiness (1998), but it continues with same characters with their life after what happened with Happiness. It is good, yet due changing whole cast of actors, it takes a while to really remember who was who and how they used to be.
There are some tasty dialogue and pretty intense moments, although it can't match the genius levels set earlier. I'm surprised I never heard about this until now. 2 days ago, didn't know it existed. But it was already made 2009. For fans of utterly morbid humor, essential.

What makes the Walking Dead graphic novels good is the tension between the characters and gritty & depressed atmosphere.
First 2 episodes in the tv-series were great but after that the stale acting and bad writing almost ruined the tv-series for me, there is almost zero tension and the depressed atmoshpere which made the graphic novels great is missing.
Thankfully they have replaced the writers of the tv-series, so it will probably get better in season 2.
