Mage Movies, II

We decided to take last night and today and just gorge ourselves on movies...and the upshot is, you get to hear about it.

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow - I love when a film makes me want to see it bad enough that I'm constantly checking to see if it's available. This, though, makes it that much more disappointing when the film doesn't live up to that desire. Sky Captain was very good looking, and I loved the background and the setting. It made me want to go play "Crimson Skies" again...I groove on the 30's, and the slightly advanced tech appealed to me. The idea behind the film story was good, too. The plot, though....well, what passed for a plot...was fuckin' hideous. Holes big enough to drive a Mack truck through, continuity errors everywhere. One of those films to watch with the sound off.

Rachel's Attic - I don't have to tell you to skip this film, because I can't really see any good reason why you would even consider picking it up. This begs the question, why did WE pick it up, and I almost didn't bother including this film here, just so I wouldn't have to admit to it. Di picked it up, saw something about how this chick enters a twisted world of S&M to look for her (probably) dead sister, and decided it might be funny. I groaned, but saw that Gunnar Hansen was in it, so decided to give it a shot. Well, we were both disappointed. The fetish involved in this was weak at best, even by the standards of someone who doesn't know what it is, and Gunnar's in about a minute and a half of the flick. Just avoid it, as you would anyway, it was utter and pointless shit.

Later today, what have we got...This So-Called Disaster (which has potential), The Grudge (I've seen Ju-On, so I've been wanting to see what Hollywood did to it), Cube Zero (I'm a nut for the 'Cube' flicks, so I've been waiting for this), and "The Best of TromaDance Film Festival 3", which should be fun. Info later.
