Boy Meets Girl

June 22, 2017 § Leave a comment

Gonna do something different this month and it is a movie of course but we live in a world where internet culture is all around us and celebrities first got famous in the internet scene before hitting mainstream. With stars like Lily Allen and Grumpy Cat, it seems the term “fifteen minutes of fame” is starting to no longer apply but it’s still around for now. And as part of LGBT Pride Movies month, I am looking at Boy Meets Girl, a 2014 movie that stars Michelle Hendley, a transgender female who first got famous as a YouTube blogger.

And there is a little to talk about director Eric Schaeffer since why he does make movies and television series before or after this movie, he also is actor when it comes to stuff like Spanglish, One Night At McCool’s and Gravity. And he’s also a blogger thanks to him writing I Can’t Believe I’m Still Single which got turned into a book and reality television series of the same name. So he knows internet, movie and acting. One thing I should add is that prior to reviewing this movie, I honestly never heard of him but who knows, maybe after this movie, I might look into more of his stuff so off to the movie first.

Taking place in Kentucky, this movie focuses of Ricky (Michelle Hendley) who’s a barista living in a small town with her family as well as her best friend Robby (Michael Welch). She does also have dreams which is to be a designer in New York as well as finding love. Her search for love takes an unexpected turn when she meets Francesca (Alexandra Turshen) who’s a wealthy girl engaged to David (Michael Galante), a marine soldier who’s nearly done his duty in Afghanistan. Their meeting went from friends first but they developed an affair which not only later angers David but frustrated Robby since he knows Ricky in high school and the fact that he dislikes her for transphobic reasons.

The affair has David gone all transphobic and wanting to know if Francesca slept with Ricky before the movie gave a twist with the fact that Ricky lost her virginity years ago with David and they kept their sex happening a secret. It didn’t take long until Francesca admit it and then David does the same and drops the transphobic act. As for Ricky, she is not only unhappy with breaking up with Francesca but that she didn’t get accepted to school for her fashion designing. Her unhappiness lead to fight with Robby before she storms out but not before Ricky’s little brother Sam (Joseph Ricci) showed Robby a video involving Ricky’s teenage past.

Robby finds Ricky and admits what he said is wrong as well as declaring his love to her. On to the following days, Robby helps Ricky out without her knowledge by setting a pledge site involving her fashion designs and upon discovering it, she has enough money to go to New York and tries again but with her best friend turned lover in the side. Now this is a pretty different kind of movie I reviewed to be honest since it is proper love story that is down to earth and almost felt biographical which is noticeable.

Like Michelle, Ricky is a video blogger and might be a famous one since David showed a YouTube video of her and Francesca upon his return to Kentucky. There are differences really like the fact that Michelle is interest in Cosmetology before being discovered by the director. And the sexual portion of the movie is pretty explanatory even by dramedy standards, Ricky talks to Robby about the differences of sex with male and female since her orientation is her choice. To keep in mind, transgender applies to any sexuality whether it’s heterosexuality, homosexuality or bisexuality so everybody in any gender has different attraction.

The movie is actually good and worth seeking out if you want a love story that’s not in Nicolas Sparks writing territory. Michelle is good in her acting debut and Michael is also good which reminds me, he does act outside of Twilight series and I had seen him in Z Nation which is a ridiculous zombie show that I like so he has acting qualities. The dialogue is sharp, the storytelling is quirky and good and the development is fine. It’s an indie movie that deserved to be recognised and I won’t forget this. Now the month is drawing to a close so next time, I’m looking at another indie movie but it’s the one that is now becoming more known… thanks to an award show that ended in the most accidental way possible. Yeah, it’s that movie.

Nowhere

June 19, 2017 § Leave a comment

This is gonna be something and I’m not sure if this is related to my “lookback review” schtick or not but I am finally reviewing a Gregg Araki movie. I say this because back in September 2010, I reviewed Rian Johnson’s The Brothers Bloom and made a dumb pointless joke by saying that Mysterious Skin is about alien kidnapping which it kinda is but there is more to it than aliens. But given that I brought up that it’s a joke, I’m guessing this week’s review is a brick joke punchline of sorts.

And that punchline is a movie called 1997’s Nowhere which is gonna take much to explain about why I say it’s a punchline but first, about Gregg Araki. One of the pioneers of New Queer Cinema, he hit the scene in the 1980s and 1990s with films like Totally Fucked Up and The Doom Generation. Some say those movies are good but many others including Roger Ebert say “zero stars”. He still makes movies like Splendor (which I wish I could review for this month) and Kaboom (which won its first Queer Palm at Cannes Film Festival). I don’t know what else to say about him but whether his films are a hit or miss, he is a prominent filmmaker and an awesome guy to boot. Now, about Nowhere, how to explain this one?

Um, it involves Dark (James Duval) who’s a teenager thinking his life in Los Angeles is going nowhere (uh, I see what Araki did there). He is having relationship troubles with Mel (Rachel True) who’s being polyamorous and free unlike Dark while he also has a crush with his classmate Montgomery (Nathan Bexton). While he’s recording videos in a video artist kind of way, he is seeing things like an alien who zaps people into oblivion or abducting anybody in public sight. He along with his friends are also invited to a party hosted by Jujyfruit (Gibby Haynes) and uh, should I talk about his friends?

Because while it involves Dark in a main way, there are subplots left to right. Dark’s friend Cowboy (Guillermo Diaz) is having relationship issues with Bart (Jeremy Jordan) who’s addicted to drugs. Alyssa (Jordan Ladd) is having wild sexy times with Elvis (Thyme Lewis) while Elvis is having issue with drug dealer Handjob (Alan Boyce) which leads to Elvis beating Handjob to death in a party. Egg (Sarah Lassez) falls for an unnamed teen idol (Jaason Simmons) who he later turns out to be rapist who abused her. Mel’s brother Zero (Joshua Gibran Mayweather) wants to go to party with Zoe (Mena Suvari) despite being younger than them and so on and so on.

Yeah, this movie is filled with subplots and there’s even one I want to bring up but that one is not really connected to anything. Going back to Dark and he finds out Montgomery is abducted while Mel is getting laid in party (in front of anybody) by a group of twins which leads him to be depressed and go home but not after he witnessed Ducky (Scott Caan) trying to drown himself after hearing that Egg killed herself after watching an evangelist program hosted by Moses (John Ritter). Oh, and Bart also killed himself for watching the same thing.

And again, back to Dark’s story which is how the movie draws to a close. Montgomery escapes from the aliens and went to Dark to sleep in his bed which makes them both happy… that is until Montgomery’s body exploded with a cockroach-like alien appearing and leaving the room ending the movie with Dark screaming at the fact that some guy known as Donnie will kill him 28 days from now and now, I’m getting two movies confused with the fact that they both starred James Duval.

This movie is an ultimate example of being a time capsule to the point where the nineties is filled with anything that’s anarchic and nihilistic. While this is not the first kind of movie Gregg has done with that approach, it is the first movie of his I have seen many years ago and back then, I hated the movie. Nowadays, I can see why this is made and why it is his style at that time. It is part of his so-called “Teenage Apocalypse Trilogy” (or as I like to call it, “The Sexual Life Of James Duval Trilogy”) and this movie does touch upon the Apocalypse likeness especially from Alyssa who mentioned the world is set to end at that time but it didn’t so maybe he save it for his later movies (or a television pilot).

As for the bisexual relation of this, it is clear that it involves Dark who’s bisexual along with Mel and other characters and this is a clear depiction right down to the opening scene where he’s jerking off in a shower while dreaming about both Mel and Montgomery. For the casting, it’s good since it’s filled with stars that are relavant at that time even with cameos by the likes of Denise Richards and Shannen Doherty. It’s basically what you get if you put Teen Beat magazine on blender with drugs and it mixed up with fucked-up shit. There’s also soundtrack which is of its time and the aesthetics are like that as well.

So as long as you can handle a movie filled with subplots involving deranged versions of teenagers in Los Angeles scene, this movie is for you then and I did say I hate the movie back then but repeated viewings did change that and I saw other Gregg Araki movies since then so you have to understand by watching it more than once. Okay, I had gotten through a Gregg Araki movie and will get back to his filmography again in the future but now, I am set to look at a movie that’s not chaotic and that also includes a movie after that as well so until next time.

The Duke Of Burgundy

June 11, 2017 § Leave a comment

It’s June which is already known as LGBT Pride Month and given that I did a theme month involving LGBT-centric movies last year, I enjoyed it so much that I’m doing it again. Now going by random order like last time, I perhaps start off with a lesbian-themed movie and I do say movie instead of graphic novel series unlike last time. However, I do say that like Sunstone, this movie also has BDSM theme but in a more surreal direction. I also do note that it’s been said by some to be a lesbian version of 50 Shades of Grey which I’m unsure is a good or bad thing since I just mentioned 50 Shades in this review… and I have yet to review that one!

50 Shades Of Black

The first movie I’m reviewing for LGBT Pride Month is The Duke of Bungundy and it’s a fourth directorial effort by Peter Strickland whom I should really talk about because oh shit, has nobody seen Berberian Sound Studio? It must be seen (and heard) to be believed. He also did other stuff with Katalin Varga and one live concert film by Bjork but again, watch Berberian Sound Studio before reading this review, you would thank me later. Sorry, I got off-track there so uh, let me just review this one before I review the other one instead.

Berberian

Taking place in presumably the 1970s, we meet Evelyn (Chiara D’Anna) who not only studies lepidopterlogy also works as a maid in home belonging to Cynthia (Sidse Babett Knudsen). Her work as a maid went into BDSM territory as Evelyn falls for Cynthia through punishment whenever she didn’t complete her task. Their relationship started out fine but Cynthia has second thoughts and it’s due to the fact that she’s older than Evelyn and fears that her age would affect it. And after Evelyn discovered a trunk that is considered her “punishment”, both her and Cynthia decide to go with it.

Trunk

At first, the idea worked but Cynthia has some concerns and later discovered that Evelyn is trying to have her “punishment” for somebody else. Evelyn apologizes and still stays with Cynthia but their issues haven’t resolved until later and they decided to go back to the original plan ending the movie with their romance still intact.

Couple

This movie is a nostalgic mix of 1970s Jess Franco movie and a bit of David Lynch nightmarish fuel along the way. It also felt a bit post-apocalyptic with the fact that this is a movie where the cast is all female and no male in sight so I don’t know how Peter pulled it off but he did… with some females being barely seen mannequins. Heck, both Sidse and Chiara act a bit like dolls in some parts especially when Evelyn went to another world filled with butterflies and dreamy atmosphere. And lastly, the score by Cat’s Eyes adds to the flavor which makes us wonder what happens if Alison Goldfrapp decide to do a tribute to Julee Cruise.

Butterflies

It is worth checking and as much as this movie is erotic, it is almost safe-for-work with the exception of some sexual sequences. I know this review is short but I got heaps to do at this time so hope it’s understandable. I however don’t know how to tell you about the next movie I review… It is um, confusing and messed up! Not spoiling but let’s just say that Generation X era has some messed up movies so until then.

Accidental Love

June 7, 2017 § Leave a comment

I was afraid that it’ll come to this. Okay, first thing I should say about this is that I forgot to mention that my last review was basically the 200th article I have posted. I was assuming it would happen within a month but hey, I hit the big 200 and of course it’s me reviewing a crappy movie. Not Twilight-related but a crappy movie nonetheless. However, I can admit that the review was a bit anti-climatic because of how I stated that there’s little to talk about The Tooth Fairy II due to the fact that it has a similar synopsis as the first movie. But hey, it now comes to the second thing which is me reviewing Accidental Love and let me talk to you about Stephen Greene that some would be surprised about.

Stephen Greene

Now Stephen Greene is a director best known for such films as See You Next Wednesday and… fine fine, he doesn’t exist. In truth, this started out as a David O. Russell vehicle but due to financial difficulties which caused the film to be delayed, David quit the project to financial difficulties and went on to finish on The Fighter. But given the movie was left unfinished, the executives took over and try to finish it… four years later! Now back in my Best/Worst of 2015 retrospective, I mention this as being part of worst of due to the unfinished effect and nearly finish a review of it at that time. But as life imitates art, I finished it just this week so at least this review is all my doing.

David O Russell

The story revolves around Alice Eckle (Jessica Biel) who was living a good life with her working as a diner waitress with Scott (James Marsden), her boyfriend and sheriff who’s a dreamboat to girls around him. As Scott takes Alice to the date, it was going smooth but with a guy fixing the restaurant’s logo near them, it didn’t go exactly as planned. And then, Alice got accidentally struck by a nail from the worker’s nail gun and she has gone to hospital to get her fixed. Again, it didn’t work exactly as planned since she doesn’t have insurance and Doctor Turnstall (Bill Hader) abort the operation. With Alice still alive but with a nail stuck inside her head, she needs help and discovers Representative Howard Birdwell (Jake Gyllenhaal) so it’s up to her to go to Washington with the aid of Reverend Norm (Kurt Fuller) and Keyshawn (Tracy Morgan), both whom has something abnormal that the hospital can’t help.

Jessica Biel

Alice finds romance with Howard but Howard himself is facing a political crisis as well as his manhood with former astronaut turned representative Pam Hendrickson (Catherine Keener) finding ways to not let a healthcare that helped Alice go through which includes causing Speaker Buck McCoy (James Brolin) to not revived from stroke, fake-outing a prepubescent scout girl (?!?) and so on. In the end, Howard finds his ways and the healthcare quietly goes through which ends with Alice and Howard as lovers, Keyshawn finding his own and Scott moving on with his former love.

Ending

There is not much said about this movie but I can see it being a mess. For one, I’ve seen movies like Flirting With Disaster and I Heart Huckabees to know it’s David O. Russell’s style of filming and there is very little style here but I can’t tell which is which. Some scenes were filmed in dutch angle but others look like it’s filmed differently and the humor is a bit slapstick but the only time I laughed is Jake Gyllenhaal acting like he’s trying out-cage Nic Cage and Paul Reubens videobombing himself in the news. Speaking of actors involved, does anybody know that James Caan was originally in the role for Buck? If the answer is no, then be surprised because a set photo of him is featured in the back of the DVD.

WP_20151031_001

It’s also a very dated movie even by the time it was released with Obamacare passed into law at that time so why was this released is beyond me. I can’t bear myself to watch this again because it looks like a movie but it’s missing something. This is executive meddling at its finest and I don’t know why what was unfinished is then finished with the hands of few financiers and a former executive of Capitol who assembled it. If Alan Smithee pseudonym remained intact, this would be as big as Burn Hollywood Burn and I don’t mean it as a good way. But if there’s anything to say about this, it’s that at least I finished the review in my own writing and editing skills and with nobody taking my place on this.

The Tooth Fairy 2

May 11, 2017 § Leave a comment

Well, I never expected to go down to this road but before I’ll get to talk about… this guy! Let me first bring up Alex Zamm. And who is this auteur that Hollywood is still hiring to this day? Well, he got his start on television work but it’s not until he enters the film business by writing a script to a classic that is… Chairman of the Board! Um, did I say classic? My bad. Since then, he got involved in such projects as Inspector Gadget 2, Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 and the one that I reviewed years ago which is Dr Dolittle: Million Dollar Mutts. And this is the reason I set myself to a new low by reviewing this direct-to-DVD turkey.

But really, I can’t fault him since I’m sure he might be a father and makes movies for his children or a type of audience. I mean, it explains why Sean McNamara said yes to a bunch of Baby Geniuses sequels. However, I am gonna be grumpy with the fact that I’m reviewing a sequel to The Tooth Fairy starring Larry The Cable Guy. There are many questions on this movie like why did this warrant a sequel but despite negative reviews, the first movie is a box office hit. Also, another question is why this guy is the pick for the sequel and if somebody is gonna bring up Cars franchise, I would continue asking questions on that instead and that would a long time to rant about it.

So the movie revolves around Larry Guthrie (Larry The Cable Guy) whom won a car after a bowling miracle that involves him slipping on the floor and the bowling ball hits the whole bowling alley full of pins. Ignoring that it’s physically impossible, his winning also led to a break-up with his girlfriend Brooke (Erin Beute) who falls to mayoral candidate Bo Billings (David Mackey) but he’s not giving up even if it took nearly a whole year so he decides to help out Brooke at a child care centre while being a dick by saying The Tooth Fairy doesn’t exist to Gabe McGee (Gabriel Suttle).

And being a dick obviously caused him to become The Tooth Fairy with Nyx (Brady Reiter) as his case agent and has to do the duty or he’ll lose his favorite memory which is his bowling win. Like the first movie, he does his duties all while getting to shenanigans while winning a girl’s heart and making Gabe and other kids believing in the Tooth Fairy so the movie is almost a retelling of the predecessor except for location and character changes. I honestly don’t know what to else about the story other than the fact that it’s exactly like the first movie except it involves a blue collar comedian instead of a wrestling superstar.

Aside from the story, the movie is one of the worst sequels I’ve taken my time to watch and I don’t mean it by angering standards. I mean it by the fact that this is pointless and non-existent. To compare, the other movie Larry and Alex is involved in is Jingle All The Way 2 and it also plays out the first movie except instead of Turboman, it’s a talking bear known as Harrison Bear. Whether I should review this or that, it don’t matter because in the end, I’m reviewing a poor remake rather than a poor sequel with the same beats, inferior humor (like Larry talking to Nyx about Chicken which went too long) and weak lead.

I do apologize if this review is at best short but there is nothing to talk further about this movie because of what I said. I may not like the first movie as well but at least it did something – it proved that an actor best known for wrestling and action movie field can play a role that is so ridiculous that it felt more like a fake parody movie joke ala Adam Sandler’s movies seen within Judd Apatow’s Funny People. But if there’s anything to say, it’s the fact that it took me this long to review a movie starring Larry The Cable Guy and probably will never review another one again even if it’s a bad theme month idea.

At least the next one is a better choice for lookback review backlog but let’s just say that even though it’s been a while since I went to that one and that it is more than one story that I should tackle so had to think on how on this one.

(Star Trek) Renegades: The Requiem, Part 1

May 2, 2017 § Leave a comment

Being a fan of Star Trek franchise since my childhood, I have seen a fair share of fan productions whether it’s Phase II/New Voyages which adapts unused episodic scripts or a TNG porn parody that would work as a standalone TNG episode if you’ve taken the sex scenes out. And in 2013, production started on Star Trek: Renegades which follows the events of the final episode of Star Trek: Voyager which familiar faces like Walter Koenig, Tim Russ and Robert Ricardo along with Edward Furlong and Sean Young join in the show.

The first episode finally premiered in 2015 due to patience and crowdfunding and it is an interesting take on the franchise with the cast of characters being more rebellious than the Marquis. It had good performances, interesting storyline and alright special effects if you get used to the low-budget fan productions aspect. So since then, fans were waiting for the follow-up but something happened. Paramount decide to change guidelines for fan films and fucked with the fanbase. Granted, the first half of the second installment of the series did came out but it doesn’t have the same feel.

So Renegades (formerly Star Trek: Renegades) focused on United Federation of Planets being on its troubling times so Admiral Pavel Chekov (Walter Koenig) and Commander Tuvok (Tim Russ) set up a team full of criminals and non-federation officials as led by Lexxa Singh (Adrienne Wilkinson) to discover what is tearing the centuries-old government apart. The first mission was somewhat successful with Lexxa and her crew to get along and have started adventures unlike any other. That was the first episode in a nutshell. Yeah, I leave out why the Federation is in crisis and who is Lexxa’s team-mates are because basically the second episode have a sense of ignoring and changing it big time.

While the synopsis of the second episode focused primary of Chekov to resign from his position and join the renegade crew while explaining further on what’s happening, anything seems off. Truly, the character names are intact and their motivations but it stopped being Star Trek fan production and attempt to be its own thing with the title of this episode itself as a giveaway clue since this will be Walter Koenig’s final performance as Chekov (and presumably Nichelle Nichols as Uhura) and after his final performance, anything that says Star Trek will be diminished with the possible exception of few characters I mention as well as having Shree (Courtney Peldon) whose species is Andorian, an alien race that is part of Star Trek franchise.

Another point is that the costume changes occur for Federation officials with insignia being absent and speaking of which, even the word “Federation” is changed to “Confederation”so now I’m assuming this is a Star Trek universe if the Confederates won the Civil War. Interesting change but also a bit unnecessary. A big one is also the change of cast. While Adrienne, Courtney and Gary Graham remained in the cast, few others didn’t and they got killed off either off-screen or on-screen in a poor fashion.

I hate to say this and I really do but The Requiem, Part 1 might be close enough to the least-favorite thing I’ve seen happening to the franchise and at least I say “close enough” because if the guidelines didn’t change and most of the cast didn’t quit, who knows if what I said is definite or not. The storyline may be interesting and some casting performances is fine but the changes put me off big time. It also got worst when there’s a Catina Bar-like sequence with Robert Beltran making the most pointless cameo as either Chakotay or somebody else but holding the gun and having one line before he literally disappeared.

Suffice to say, I don’t know what to say about the second part when it aired. I also have a sense of predictability regarding Chekov’s character and what happens next but if I’m the reviewer who defends Into Darkness despite it being criticized for a character being whitewashed and The Wrath of Khan similarlities, then I’m also the reviewer who can’t defend Star Trek: Renegades for taking the following words “Star Trek” off the title.

Grizzly Flats

April 1, 2017 § Leave a comment

It has been a little more break since all I had to do is finish up every single episode of The Wonder Years but my sad excuse for “having a vacation” is over and I am returning to my so-called “Lookback Reviews” series. And already, I am less optimistic about this movie because I wrote down a list of what to review in the coming weeks and let’s just say that the first of the list is a boring and pathetic mess of a movie. Grizzly Flats is a 2011 movie from Anthony Fankhauser who gave us 2012: Supernova which I thought was so bad since I assume NASA having federal agents is a science fiction thing which clearly isn’t.

But other than that, he is perhaps more known (in a lesser extent) as a producer for such movies as Film: The Movie, Earthtastrophe and Lavalantula movies. Which reminds me, I need to add 2 Lava 2 Lantula on my list so yeah, need to get into lot of those. He also directed 8213: Gacy House which is a found footage movie where a bunch of ghost hunters investigate the home of John Wayne Gacy… that was demolished in 1979! Uh well, gonna find a famous serial killer as a basis for a found footage horror movie somehow so maybe Charles Manson’s house is not gonna work or something.

Taking place in a town known as Grizzly Flats, the movie begins as Sheriff Donnelly (Judd Nelson) is filming a porn with his girlfriend Renee (Danielle De Luca). However, they spotted an intruder which turns out to be a… shadow-like transparent ghost! The thing attacked them but they somehow survived with Renee having scars on her face. We then meet up with Sylvain (Ryan Karloff) as he is working on an experiment after quitting the job and moving into the town with his wife Mary Anne (Maggie VandenBerghe) but despite him thinking the experiment failed, it actually worked and he became responsible for those shadow figures that terrorize small parts of the town.

And while he thinks his place is invaded by his neighbors known as the McConnellys, Mary Anne discovers a gourd and became disillusion enough to raise it as if it’s her baby with town’s local pastor Ron (Christian Maurice Gantt) as the only one who supports her. Sylvain gets a visit from Red McConnelly about a truce and offers a meth to him before he went and get killed by a shadow figure. After that, both Sylvain and Red’s brother and father then discover a body of one of the shadow figures and keep it a secret before Sylvain is losing his sanity over his experiment and Mary Anne raising a gourd. He used a meth and discovers he can see shadow figures more visible and get what his experiment is meant for.

Sylvain then meets up with Mary Anne and Ron and became a total dick to the pastor but then the shadow figures invade the house and leads Sylvain to shoot ’em all out before surviving the night. They survived but after Ron runs away, Sylvain decides to move away but Mary Anne prefers to stay and threatens him with his gun. Sylvain then goes to the McConnelly family and the three became high with meth that they shoot rest of shadow figures before it leads Sylvain as the sole survivor. He went back home and decides to cook for Mary Anne which turns out to be her baby gourd. She became enraged that she shoots him and the movie ends with Sheriff taking Renee’s body after she got caught in a car crash and became sad that he sat silently while the credit rolls by.

Oh fuck, what do I have to say about this movie? Okay, I may as well bring out the positives and there is few. First, it’s a movie where the story sounds interesting on paper. The idea of a scientist discovering he caused something from a distant dimension to come here and wreak havoc is something and it is intriguing. And in terms of acting, there is some ham in there but the cheesy acting comes within the third act. The only other positive thing is that Ryan did pull it off as scientist but as a husband figure is another thing which I’ll get into.

Anything else is bad, just plain bad. For up until the last twenty or so minutes of the movie, it’s literally boring and a little happens. There’s many scenes of them talking in monotone way and I just want some scare factor or any moment but it took a while before one of those popped up. Plus even though Ryan acted like a scientist well, his character is also irredeemable by acting like a prick to nearly everybody including his wife. For a guy playing a hero, he sure is acting like a douchebag. The acting on everybody else is forgettable and I feel more sorry for Judd Nelson then when he was playing a villain in Steel. Yeah, I feel sorry for Judd over this movie instead of the movie starring Shaq. I mean, he was a household name in the eighties thanks to The Breakfast Club and St Elmo’s Fire and this is where he’s at now. He even acted badly in this so this is him doing a paycheck without a care even with Danielle standing topless in front of him.

I do honestly say that this is the first worst movie I’ve seen in a long while and I don’t mean by so-bad-its-good standards. Then again, I got other crap to get into soon so will I still hate this movie with a passion or forget about it shortly after is a good question. Other than that, I should have looked at Anthony’s other movies like Tsunami Beach Club or Rise of the Dinosaurs and I bet those are better than this boring excuse of a horror movie.
