I like movies. A lot.
Man, do I love Bob Odenkirk.
Back when the Tom Green show was playing on the Comedy Network here in Canada, we would always catch the end of the show leading into it. And very soon we were completely addicted to this show and were trying to remember who the fuck Tom Green was (please forgive me Mr. Green. I still adore Freddy Got Fingered). It was Mr. Show, and it was one of the funniest things I've ever seen.…
I was down about not getting to see Bungle live this tour, but fuck, this was pretty goddamn fucking amazing.
Bungle masterfully uses every aspect of a virtual concert that would be a detriment and makes it something special. Kind of like how a master filmmaker like Raimi makes a low budget work for him, making the film better.
This is a one of a kind experience that wouldn't be possible seeing them live. Plus, the songs, the performances and the musicianship is, for me, the absolute best ever.
I really like mockumentaries. In most cases, there's a lot more thought put into creating them rather than most found footage films that just have non-actors adlibbing while wandering around the woods/a building/etc.
This one was decent, but it never really brought in any horror elements until the last 10 minutes. Actually, I thought it was a whodunnnit up until the ending. It was a pleasant surprise that it was a horror movie after all, but I was so certain…
Another hypocritical review. If this took place in America or the UK I probably wouldn't have given it more than a star. But since it took place in Saudi Arabia and went over a lot of it's history, I was interested through most of the run time. It's not a location I'm used to seeing in horror movies.
But calling this a horror movie is a stretch. It's more like a travelogue with a shock ending.
