Film school grad. (who cares?)
Reviews are brief and very non film-schoolish.
The Good: This may legitimately be my favorite Gene Hackman performance. He is delightful throughout!
The Bad: As far as Wes Anderson movies go...it's not the funniest.
Bill Murray and Danny Glover are all but wasted in this one. They are given virtually nothing to work with.
The Bottom Line: Worth the watch for Hackman, but nothing like Rushmore or Bottle Rocket.
~TITLE VERY ON THE NOSE~
The Good: For an "on the nose" revenge flick, this movie is shot waaaay too well. Everything is so beautiful it practically glistens...that is, until the blood starts flowing.
After seeing what these guys do to this poor gal, it's very rewarding seeing her take them down!
The Bad: While I admire her will to survive, I'm not sure how she could become quite so accurate with a rile that fast. I'm also not sure how she could function so long with her injuries and no water etc.
The Bottom Line: Good revenge movie, just don't expect it to be realistic.
~NOT Based on real events~
The Good: This is atmospheric Horror at its' finest! Everything about it is creepy, grimy and makes your skin crawl. The 20 minute scream-fest at the end could fall under good and bad I suppose.
The Bad: The invalid brother is the most unlikeable character maybe ever? I actually cheered when Leatherface killed him.
The Bottom Line: Don't pick up hitchhikers and make sure you get gas every now and then...
Every Horror enthusiast must make the visual pilgrimage. The being said, I'm not sure I ever have to watch it again.
