We've seen a ton of movies in 2011, reviewed a bunch of them, and yet we still have so many that we never talked about. There's plenty of reasons as to why we don't review certain movies; sometimes we're lazy, sometimes we don't have much to say that tons of other sites haven't said already, and sometimes we just get tired of sounding negative.
So with 2012 rapidly approaching, we're going to take a quick look at some of the movies of 2011 that we've ignored.
These are going to be quick and fairly to the point, although in all fairness, our points may suck. Then again, our points seldom suck.
Dream House- Whereas this movie was marketed to look like a ghostly horror movie, it was really more of a drama.
DH revolves around a family that moves into a house with a dark and dangerous past (ugh); the homes previous owner killed his wife and kids you see, and is of course "still out there."
Weird things start happening to the family after moving in, and they soon discover that the killer might be back to claim his house and kill them too...
This was a decent little movie. Daniel Craig is a favorite of ours, mainly because he makes a good James Bond, but he plays creepy well here too. Of course any movie with Rachel Weisz is always worth checking out, because she's a hottie and a half. And let us not forget the also hot neighbor, Naomi Watts.
Dream House has it's moments, and entertains.
The Master Says- C+ This movie is decent enough, and fairly entertaining, even if it is a bit misleading. If you like a good thriller with a decent twist or two, you'll most likely enjoy this movie. Be warned though, it's not quite the horror flick it looks to be. It's actually more of a mystery. We don't care; it's got 2 hot chicks and James Bond in it.
Dream Home- Not to be confused with the above mentioned Dream House, Dream Home is a bloody, gory, sex filled, nasty little horror flick that even managed to tackle some tough Chinese social issues.
It also stars the hot as hell Josie Ho, who incidentally has the best name of all time for a hot chick.
Dream Home is about a psychopathic hot chick (Ho), who has it in her mind that she needs to live in her dream home, even though she cant afford it at all. Being clever, she decides to start killing the neighbor in order to make the place undesirable and drive the price down.
This movie really get violent and bloody, as we watch our creepy main character just kill people like it's nothing. If you like your Asian horror flicks on the nasty side of things, you will love this movie. Interestingly, it's based on a true story.
The Master Says- B+ Dream Home is a fun, creepy and messy movie. Josie Ho, aside from being hot, plays the psycho role rather well. You may even find yourself cheering her on, although she is no hero. We kept wanting her to get caught or killed, because she seemed so unstoppable. How does it end? Rent/Buy a copy and find out. You wont be sorry.
Red Riding Hood- Amanda Seyfried's boobs. That's about all we liked about this one, although it wasn't truly "Bad."
RRH is another Twilight-inspired love fest for teens, in which a cute, big tittied girl loves a mysterious and brooding outcast... yeah.
Their love is forbidden, so they plan to run away together and love each other desperately for all of time. Then, the town werewolf starts killing people...
The plot is lame, unless you like schmaltzy teen romance crap. The movie does look really good though, and boasts not only Seyfried's tittahs, but the ever-awesome Gary Oldman. What he was doing in this movie, we'll never know, but he was interesting to watch as always, even in the midst of such a blah story.
Had this movie had a bit more bite, it could have been something special.
The Master Says- C If you like Twilight, perfect boobs, or Gary Oldman, you may find something redeeming about this movie. IF you hate any of the above, skip it. If you have a mixture of love and hate for the above, then watch it, just maybe fast forward a lot.
PArt 3 coming forthwith...
