Just a poster...couple of DVD reviews...

Hey guys...there really is no news at all today, so here is the only real bit to talk about...it's a new Happening poster...it looks pretty awesome, and while it IS an M. Night Shamalayn flick, I'm a little excited...



Okay, so since there isn't any real news, here are just a couple of things on two films that I have seen in the past couple of days on DVD...
-SAW 4-
Wow, where to begin. Lets see, the plot was a little confusing, but for the most part, a cop must go on the hunt for a friend, but then it is discovered that he is apart of Jigsaw's first postmortum game. This film continues the shitstain on cinema's underwear that is the Saw series, and it should be to no ones suprise that this movie was bad. It's now on DVD, so most of you have probably seen it, and I would like to hear from those who have. I personally think that this film has no point, no cinematic bonuses, it wasn't shot interestingly, the edits were obnoxious, the plot was basic Saw fair, and the acting was B-Movie at best. Minus Donnie D's few lines...gotta love that guy...

-HE WAS A QUIET MAN-
Now, this is a much smaller film than Saw, and many of you may not have seen it. It is a film about a loner laborer named Bob, played by Christian Slater, and he is fed up with his job. It's a lot like Office Space, just instead of being funny, it was just pretentious, and stuck with the guy who got shit on all the time for the whole movie. This wasn't a bad film, but it's about a guy who wants to kill his co workers, and then he goes through a situation that should change him, but the ending negates any investment you have in the film. It's all style over substance, and the style really isn't all that great. For example, he has fish, and the fish talk to him the entire time. It's like Office Space meets Finding Nemo, plus a little Donnie Darko thrown in, which as you all know, is not something I personally enjoy. This isn't a bad movie, it's just a mediocre movie that gets worse as you go. It would probably get a 5 out of 10 from me.
