Movies

Yeah, so I saw a lot of movies this weekend.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age - Mediocre, at best. Slow and dragged on. Shorten it to 2 hours and it's golden. It's not, so it fails.

Michael Clayton - Amazing. Everything about it is awesome. However, it's VERY complex and mind bending. You have to think, so be prepared. I still feel like I'm missing key details of exactly what happened. Gotta see it again.

Across the Universe - Perfect is one word that comes to mind. It just works. And, contrary to many people I bet, the movie is best viewed sober. Trust me.

Not-Quite-A-Review from SXSW 2011: James Wan's 'Insidious' is very, very scary

* By Scott Wampler, Comedy Examiner
* March 12th, 2011 1:51 pm ET

Yesterday afternoon, Sony screened James Wan's Insidious for critics, and later on that evening, I had the nightmares to prove it: Insidious isn't just the scariest film I've ever had the pleasure of seeing in a theater, but it's also the most terrifying PG-13-reated flick you're ever likely to come across (besides The First Wives Club, of course). We can't offer up a full "review" of the movie-- so sayeth Sony's publicists-- but we can offer our "first impressions" of Wan's film. So, what'd we think? Read on for our not-quite-a-full-blown-review, my gentle Examiner readers...

When I asked the publicist moderating this morning's cast and crew interviews for Insidious why critics were being embargoed from reviewing the film-- especially after yesterday afternoon's screening seemed to play like gangbusters for the critics that had assembled at the Alamo Drafthouse-- I was told that, "Well, if everyone writes their reviews now, no one's going to write reviews when the film hits theaters". Two things: One, Insidious hits theaters on April 1st, and you're not going to be able to avoid that (it'll generate plenty of publicity); and two, I'll be happy to run another (full-blown) review when I go see Insidious again.

James Wan's Insidious holds the distinction of being the only film I've ever seen that's made me yell, "Holy sh-t" out of abject terror. I've been frightened in scary movies before, but never to that extent. Insidious crawled right under my skin, and it appeared to scare the hell out of the other critics in attendance, too. I spoke with a few of the critics that caught the screening afterwards, and all of them seemed to enjoy it (which makes it all the more unfortunate that Sony wouldn't let us write up our reviews). James Wan oughtta be proud: scaring a jaded, horror-going audience (especially one made up entirely of people who watch movies for a living) is a tricky thing to pull off.

The fact that Insidious is able to accomplish this without spilling a single drop of blood-- it's rated PG-13, a fact that I'm still having trouble believing thanks to the film's pervasive tension-- is even more impressive, and I simply cannot wait to see how audiences are going to react to this one. Will the gore-hounds be satiated by a bloodless horror flick? Willl the fact that the film's not really a "haunted house movie" (more on that in a moment) turn off enthusiasts of that sub-genre? We'll have to wait and see. I'll be there, opening night, extremely interested to see how Insidious effects a sold-out crowd, and I suspect that it'll be just as effective the second time around. If Sony's smart, they'll start filming audience reactions and using them in the commercials for Insidious, much like they did with Paranormal Activity.

About that "haunted house" thing: The film's trailer leads you to believe that Insidious will be another entry in the ol' "haunted house" genre, but even the trailers let you in on the "secret" that Insidious isn't really a "haunted house" movie. There's a house in Wan's film, to be sure, and it does have some ghostly hijinks happening behind its front door, but calling Insidious a "haunted house" movie isn't entirely correct. If you've seen the trailers and dismissed the film because that's what you're expecting it to be, well, allow me to assure you that it isn't.

Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne play the married couple at the heart of the film-- and they're great-- but it's Lin Shaye's performance that really impressed me. Shaye will be instantly recognizable to anyone that's seen the films of the Farrelly Brothers (she played the hideous landlord in Kingpin, for instance), and perhaps that's why she's not the first person that I would've picked for this role. But, wow, does she nail it. Also appearing in the film: Saw's Leigh Whannel, who wrote the script for Insidious. He appears alongside Andrew Astor, and the two provide some much-needed levity in an otherwise nearly-unbearably tense film.

Additionally, I'd like to point out that Wan is operating at a level here that I didn't even think he was capable of. The first Saw was a great, atmospheric, done-on-a-micro-budget horror film that proved Wan was a talent worth watching, but I didn't really dig either of his follow-ups, Dead Silent or Death Sentence. In all honesty, I wasn't sure that Wan had a film like Insidious in him. But he does, and-- even more impressively-- I learned that Insidious was made for less than a million dollars.

Do you realize how remarkable that is? I've seen thousands upon thousands of movies, and many of 'em have been horror films. I've not seen many horror films that I'd deem as scary as Insidious, and an even smaller amount that weren't rated-R. On top of that, the film was made for a fraction of the cost of most wide-release films. If Hollywood's smart, they'll toss James Wan a million dollars each year and let him continue to make movies that are this good, this scary, and this unique. Hell, it has to beat giving someone $120m to make a romantic comedy that doesn't even crack $30m on its opening weekend, right?

For what it's worth, though, they don't need to make another Insidious. Insidious 2 isn't necessary, and I pray that the powers-that-be at Sony don't push for one. I predict that Insidious'll make some serious bank upon its release, but let's use that as a jumping-off point for other original projects from this team rather than more of the same. After seeing what happened to the Saw franchise, I'd like to avoid seeing Insidious fall victim to the same fate. The horse is dead (and awesome), so let's leave it be.

When Insidious hits theaters, I'll be back with my full-scale review of the film, but in the meantime, you need to round up every one of your horror-loving friends, find the biggest, loudest movie theater in the area, and reserve your seats for Insidious when it opens on April 1st: I guarantee that you won't be disappointed. Oh, and stay tuned for an exclusive interview with Wan (as well as Leigh Whannel--who also stars in the film-- and Oren Pelei, who produced) in the near future, folks.

My preliminary grade? A-

I finally watched Let Me In. It's pretty good, especially in the acting department. But it ultimately serves to show how great the original film is. Let Me In is not a subtle film by any means; it is quite forceful and blunt at times. A large part of the greatness of Let the Right One In is its understatement and ambiguity.

Finally saw Black Swan and The Social Network.

Social Network - spellbinding from beginning to end. Didn't even realize they used CGI on the twins. ****ing incredible.

Black Swan - a straight up LSD trip. I've decided I don't really like Darren Aronofsky's films that much. All his bullshit gets in the way of the story. Still glad I saw it, very entertaining. Natalie Portman's pretty overrated though. Pun intended.

Next up - Inception

Just watched Devil, Wow that was really good! the movie didn't get great reviews when it came out but that's how it is nowadays when a movie flirts too much with the fact that there's a God and a Devil among us. This was interesting, well made, suspenseful. I would have pushed it a bit further though, the producer got probably too scared of involving Jesus in it as it would have made a truly religious movie. I would put it in the same category as "Knowing" with Nic Cage.

This is interesting. I think religion is a great thematic source for films. I don't think anyone needs to be scared of it. I am not religious, but I do find myself enjoying religious themed movies just as much as others if they are well made (good storytelling.)

There was a small movie a few years ago with Henry Thomas in the Appalachian mountains, forget the name, but if it had had better editing, and better overall production value, it would have been a great movie. I think it generally was written off by distributors due to the quality of the production (not to be confused with the performances, which are terrific,) but the Christian theme ended up taking the blame.

I find that sad. Just looked it up, The Last Sin Eater - 2007.

Inception was cool. I like to interpret the spinning top as symbolism. Cobb has finally realized his dream of reuniting with his kids. I read some stuff that says you hear it drop after the screen goes black, but I couldn't.

I don't think it deserved an oscar for special effects, though. And I think it would have worked better as a TV show.

In other news, I really have to say that Leonardo DiCaprio is becoming one of my favorite actors. Ever since Gangs of New York he keeps putting out awesome movies. I'd like to see him in some Harrison Ford action roles as he gets older.
