Movie Review: Eden Lake (2008)

Time for another Month of Spooks review, and this one is of an actual horror movie, I swear. So what’s on the table today? Backwoods stuff? Great…

Ladies and gentlemen… “Eden Lake”.

A nursery school teacher (Kelly Reilly) and her boyfriend (Michael Fassbender) decide to just get away for a bit, and decide to go on a romantic weekend at the remote area known as Eden Lake. But after they confront som loud teenagers, their romantic weekend away soon turns into hell on earth. So now we have our backwoods horror-thriller. And fucking hell, this shit is unrelenting. I mean, it’s utterly compelling and it had me in its grip from start to finish, but it was also quite an uncomfortable watch, which isn’t really a detriment to the movie, but it doesn’t make it very quote, unquote “enjoyable”. I do like that there’s a natural and believable buildup/escalation from the youths just being a simple nuisance, to shit really hitting the fan, adds some nice layering to it, perfectly building up the threat of the movie. The story is dark, bleak, unrelenting, unforgiving, and uncomfortable, and that’s what makes it as solid as it is.

The characters in this… I honestly don’t know what to say. The two mains are fairly likable, they’re not terrible, they’re decently well developed. Kelly Reilly plays Jenny, a teacher who just wanted a nice weekend with her boyfriend. She’s charming, likable, and when push comes to shove, she’s surprisingly tough and clever, but in a realistic and interesting way. And Reilly is absolutely fantastic in the role. Next we have Michael Fassbender as Steve, Jenny’s boyfriend. He’s the kind of guy who loves joking around with his girlfriend, but he’s not a dick. And I found him to be an interesting character to follow in this. And Fassbender is great in the role. And then we have a young Jack O’Connell as Brett, the leader of this gang of miscreants (to put it lightly). He’s a horrible individual, taking pleasure in the suffering of others, being an absolutely unrelenting threat to our two leads. And I found him to be a solid antagonist for the movie. And O’Connell is great in the role. The rest of the cast is rounded out by people like Finn Atkins, Thomas Turgoose, Jumayn Hunter, James Burrows, and Tom Gill, among others, and there is no such thing as a weak performance here, they’re all good.

The score for the movie was composed by David Julyan, and I barely noticed it. I mean, there were moments where I heard it, and in those moments it was good and worked well enough for the scene. But for the most part I never picked up on it… maybe I couldn’t hear it over the racing of my heart. But Julyan usually makes great stuff, and the little I did hear in this was good, so I’ll say that it was good.

“Eden Lake” was written and directed by James Watkins, and I think he did a great job. The level of intensity is impressive, and it had me on the edge of my seat for pretty much all of the runtime. It’s fucking unrelenting, just when you think you’re getting a minute to breathe, it comes right back and fucks with you some more. And that kind of intensity I think works excellently for the movie, and I’d say that it makes it quite scary in that regard. And Christopher Ross’ cinematography is really solid too, creating some pretty damn good looking shots.

This movie has been pretty well received. On Rotten Tomatoes it has an 81% positive rating. On Metacritic it has a score of 65/100. And on imdb.com it has a score of 6,8/10.

“Eden Lake” is not for everyone. But if you want an intense, uncomfortable, and brutal backwoods thriller, then I highly recommend the movie. It has a really good plot, good characters, great performances, good music, and great directing/cinematography. Time for my final score. *Ahem*. My final score for “Eden Lake” is a 9,56/10. So it does get the “SEAL OF APPROVAL!”.

My review of “Eden Lake” is now completed.

Jesus fucking Christ.

We now have a trailer for “Alien: Covenant”!

Hello there guys, and merry christmas! Also, happy holidays for those of you who may not celebrate christmas! Anyway, uhm… trailer!

So we have finally gotten a trailer for “Alien: Covenant”, the sequel to 2012’s “Prometheus”. So what is this all about? Well… Crew flies in space, crew lands on planet, crew finds alien life forms, chaos ensues. It’s basically the first “Alien”, only on a slightly different planet and with some other characters. But you know what, I don’t mind. It looks like it will be a thrilling science fiction-horror movie. I am also happy to see the classic Xenomorph egg, with a chestburster flying out of it. Also, there’s a Xenomorph at the end of this trailer and it makes me happy. And finally, Jebuz fucking Crust, this movie looks like it will bring back the gory stuff from the first two “Alien” movies. It really seems like they are going full on Rated R with this thing… which I love! And for those wondering, I have seen “Prometheus” and I thought it was a good movie. Yeah, it’s safe to say that I am excited about this movie. “Alien: Covenant” is set to be released in May of 2017.

What are your thoughts on this? Are you looking forward to “Alien: Covenant”? And what did you think about “Prometheus”? Leave any and all thoughts in the comments!
Enjoy!

Movie Review: X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)

x-men-apocalypse-2

I have been a pretty big fan of Marvel’s mutant franchise for most of my life. It all started with the cartoon “X-Men: Evolution”, and then I of course started watching the movies. And the rest is history. So I am of course always excited when a new one of these is about to be released. So let’s see if this was another hit.

Ladies and gentlemen… “X-Men: Apocalypse”!

Ancient mutant En Sabah Nur (Oscar Isaac) has awoken from his really long slumber and is recruiting various mutants to join him in destroying the world and rebuilding it into something different. So it’s up to Professor X (James McAvoy), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), and a bunch of other mutants to stop him before everything goes to shit. Sounds pretty standard from that outlook, but it is far more interesting than that. The only real flaw with the story is that it takes a while to actually grab the viewer and get them invested. But after about 20 – 30 minutes we get a scene involving Magneto (Michael Fassbender) which truly helps kick off the story and increase the drama. And after that I felt that the plot worked very well throughout, featuring some truly great storytelling. Again, it’s those first minutes that take a while to get going as they only act to set up characters and the plot. But after that… shit gets good!

The characters in this movie are really interesting. James McAvoy as Professor X once again knocked it out of the park, he is so great in this movie. Michael Fassbender as Magneto, fucking amazing, especially since he actually gets a few pretty damn emotional moments. And the interplay between these two main characters is just as great as ever. Jennifer Lawrence was good as Mystique, you could tell that she was phoning it in a little bit, but overall her perforamance was good. Nicholas Hoult was great as Beast. Rose Byrne (welcome back), was really good as Moira MacTaggert. Evan Peters as Quicksilver… he was just awesome, like in “Days of Future Past”. I’d even argue that he’s even better in this movie since he gets more to do and has more of a purpose in this story. So now let’s talk about the newcomers. Sophie Turner was really good as Jean Grey, I am glad that she got to shine a bit in this movie with some scenes/moments that requires the actor to be able to portray anger and distress in a movie, and she nailed it. Tye Sheridan played Cyclops in this movie and I thought he was really good. And I’m not just saying that because I’m a fan of Sheridan, but I am saying it because he was genuinely good in the role. And to answer your questions, yes I am really a fan of the guy. Kodi Smit-McPhee played Nightcrawler in the movie, and that is something I was really interested in because Nightcrawler is my favorite mutant. And I am happy to say that the guy was really good in the role. Then finally, let’s talk about Oscar Isaac as En Sabah Nur, or Apocalypse as he’s more known as. Oscar Isaac is one of the best actors of the modern generation, so I was very excited when he was cast in the role. And how was he? At first his performance felt a little odd, not exactly something that I’d say was great. But then as the movie went on I got more used to it and I’d even argue that his performance got a better over time. And as a villain in general I thought Apocalypse was fine, he was suitably intimidating and badass.

Like in the previous movie, the score was composed by John Ottman who also did the editing on the film. But how was his score for the movie? Good. It’s, bombastic… the stuff you’d expect from this type of huge superhero movie. Not to say that it’s bad, I’m just saying that it doesn’t take any big or unique or unexpected turns. But it’s good. And there are a few licensed tracks in the movie as well that caught my attention, mainly because of how cleverly they were put in the movie.

This is the fourth “X-Men” movie to be directed by Bryan Singer. And I think that he once again did a great job. The shots look good and the action is very well directed. Speaking of action, there are two action scenes in this movie that just blew me away. One of them is one I won’t spoil in case you have managed to avoid trailers and/or spoilers and haven’t seen the movie yet. But let me tell you… it’s brutal and badass. The other one… remember Quicksilver’s awesome scene from “Days of Future Past”? Yeah, it’s like that but even better. And the visual effects in the movie look great. Sure, at times there a fuckload of it and you know it… but I never thought it detracted from the movie at all… stuff looked great.

This movie has gotten some truly mixed reception. On Rotten Tomatoes it has a 48% positive rating. On Metacritic it has a score of 52/100. And on imdb.com it has a score of 7,2/10.

I honestly don’t understand all the hate that “X-Men: Apocalypse” has gotten. Is it the best “X-Men” movie? No. But it’s still a damn fine movie. With a good plot, great characters, great acting, good music, great directing, great action, and some great visual effects. The only drawback is those first 20 – 30 minutes that kind of drag on. Time for my final score. *Cough*. My final score for “X-Men: Apocalypse” is a 9,40/10. It’s not perfect, but it’s still definitely worth buying!
Worth buying

My review of “X-Men: Apocalypse” is now completed.

Feel thy name extermination
Desecrating, hail of fire
So we cross that line
Into the crypt
Total eclipse
Suffer unto my apocalypse!

New “Assassin’s Creed” movie trailer

“Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition” – Monty Python.

That’s right, ladies and gents of all ages and looks, we have a new trailer for the upcoming “Assassin’s Creed” movie, which for those who’ve lived under a rock for the past ten years, is a movie based on a series of video games. And it’s honestly one of my favorite game franchises of all time, with the second game probably being my favorite. One or two of you might remember that I did a post when the first trailer came out and I thought it was okay. Not mindblowing, but also not the worst. Still, with all the Hollywood fuck ups within the video game adaptation world, I have always been a skeptic when it comes to this. So let’s talk about this new trailer.

So it starts wit- HOLD ON… it’s PG-13!? Oh come on! PG-13… for a movie based on a series of games that happen to be very violent. Not “Gears of War” levels of violent, but still very violent. *Sigh*. Moving on from that crime against the title, we get more shots of our main character, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender), sitting in prison, working with scientists using the Animus, and accessing the genetic memory of his ancestor Aguilar. And that’s about it. We get some action and drama and sci-fi stuff… stuff we kind of already knew. So what do I like about this trailer? Well first off, there is no shitty Kanye in here… so that’s a step in the right direction. I also like the action presented, it looks kind of badass. And Fassy looks as great as ever in this. So what don’t I like about it? Well there’s a modern pop song in this movie that is supposed to be futuristic sci-fi mixed with historical fiction. It’s a trend that is being used too much these days, since it modernizes stuff that doesn’t need to be modernizes. I also don’t like GOD DAMN IT, WHY IS THIS PG-13!? It makes no sense…. at all! *Deep breath* Calm down, Markus… at least this trailer is better than the first one. *Deep breath*. “Assassin’s Creed” is set to come out around Christmas this year.

So what are your thoughts? Are you looking forward to “Assassin’s Creed”? And are you a fan of the games? Leave any and all thoughts in the comments.
Have a good one and enjoy the trailer.

The “Assassin’s Creed” movie now has a trailer

Hello there, my friends. Time for me to once again talk about a traile that caught my interest. The trailer we ae having a look at today (if you didn’t read it in the title) is the first trailer for the film adaptation of the “Assassin’s Creed” video game franchise. you may not know this about me, but I am a huge fan of the series, having played all of the main series games except for two (one of which wasn’t very well received by critics and gamers). So as you may expect, this is pretty huge for me. At first glance I’d say that the series is perfect for a big film adaptation. But then I remember those fucking awful “Resident Evil” movies. So you might understand my skepticism towards this film… so let’s talk about this here trailer.

Okay, so it starts with Michael Fassbender waking up in a hospital bed, with Marion Cotillard being the first thing/person he sees. And apparently he’s supposed to be dead from execution (death row, baby), so he technically no longer exists. I knew that the death row inmate thing was gonna be part of the story, but I thought it would be more like him sitting there, waiting for his death to then be pulled out into this experiment (getting ahead of myself). Then after that we see Fassy being put in a machien that these people call the “Animus” (so far, so good) which looks nothing like the Animus from the games, but whatever. So now he is experiencing his ancestor’s memories to then learn his skills and secrets for reasons I won’t get into. And from that we get a whole bunch of action set in the late 1400’s, all of it looking very much like a big screen adaptation of the “Assassin’s Creed” series. There is a lot to enjoy with this trailer, one of those things of course being Michael Fassbender who looks like he’s gonna be as great as ever in this movie. Second of all, the action scenes we see in the trailer looks a lot like the stuff from the games but in live action instead of computer graphics. This is good, this is something I like. What I also enjoy is that they slightly altered the plot/characters to set the movie apart from the games a bit. Instead of it being bartender Desmond Miles being put in the Animus, it’s death row inmate Callum Lynch. Also, Jeremy Irons looks menacing as hell in the one shot he gets. Okay, time for the bad… the song of choice. Music can make or break a trailer/movie/game, and the song they chose (a hip-hop/rap song) kind of made the thing a bit worse for me. While I don’t think they’ll use it in the movie, it still kind of bugged me.
But overall, I enjoyed the trailer. It had some great actors, great action and it looks interesting. The cast (thanks, imdb) is great and the director seems like he knows what he’s doing. “Assassin’s Creed” is set to come out on December 21st, 2016.
So what did you think of the trailer? Leave your thoughts in the comments and also tell me if you are interested in seeing the movie.
Have a good one and enjoy the trailer!

Movie Review: Slow West (2015)

Slow-West-Sakin-Batı

I don’t think there’s a point for me to even do some kind of intro when I review a western, because you guys already know that I am a western fanboy. But in this case I still feel like I should do one to mention how fun it is to see that there are still westerns being released. Sure we have gotten some real stinkers in recent years like “The Lone Ranger” and “Jonah Hex” (I feel sick just mentioning those pieces of shit). But I do still have hope that a western might be good/might entertain me. So let’s see if this one is any good.

Ladies and gents… “Slow West”.

So in this movie we follow young, Scottish man Jay Cavendish (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who have traveled to America to find his beloved girl named Rose (Caren Pistorius). Of course he doesn’t have the easiest time doing this on his own, but luckily he runs into an outlaw named Silas (Michael Fassbender) who is willing to help Jay find Rose. And from that we get a very unique western with a very well told and entertaining plot. The plot touches a lot on the themes of love, right & wrong and a lot of other things that I didn’t expect from it which is something that makes me appreciate a lot more. I also like how the plot has a slight sense of dark humor to give it a very fun style/mood. In conclusion, I liked the plot a whole lot.

The characters in this movie all evolve pretty well and are consistently entertaining. Kodi Smit-McPhee gives a terrific performance as this young, inexperienced yet determined man. Michael Fassbender is terrific as he always is, playing a rough  and badass outlaw who still has a little bit of a conscience. Caren Pistorius who pops up now and again throughout the movie in flashbacks and such is great as well. And I have to touch on Ben Mendelsohn as an outlaw named Payne who appears in this movie… he’s fucking great. That’s it, I have nothing else to say about that.

The score for the movie was composed by Jed Kurzel and I think he did a great job with it. I would say that it is very “Wes Anderson-ish” in style. If you have seen some of Wes Anderson’s movies you know what I’m talking about. Sort of quirky and whimsical but still done in a way where it could be used in a serious way. Does that makes senese? No? Well, I still thought it was great and fit the movie very well.

Since this is a western I have to do this thing where I touch on the shooty-bang-bang parts of the movie. And I do think they are great. Sure, they are kind of few and far between, but this is also a pretty short movie, so I’d say that it’s just proportined to the running time. And like I said, when the shootouts happen, they are pretty damn great. SImple, but effective.

This movie was the directorial debut of John Maclean and I think that he did a fantastic job directing the movie. The shots are steady and it is gorgeously shot. Of ocurse I then have to give some cred to cinematographer Robbie Ryan because the cinematography in this movie looks fantastic. And I like how they used actual environments when they filmed and not jsut some generic green screen soundstage. A lot of cred should be given to the crew of this movie.

This movie has been pretty well received by people and critics. On Rotten Tomatoes it has a 92% positive rating and a “fresh” certification. On Metacritic it has a score of 73/100. And on imdb.com it has a score of 7,0/10.

“Slow West” is a very traditional western that still does a lot of unique things with it’s story while also having interesting & entertaining characters, great music, great shootouts and fantastic directing. Time for my final score. *Bang Bang*. My final score for “Slow West” is a 9,87/10. It definitely gets the “SEAL OF APPROVAL!”.
Seal of Approval

My review of “Slow West” is now completed.

In one scene he goes from Michael Fassbender into Michael Fassbendrunk.

My Favorite Scenes: X-Men Days of Future Past – Quicksilver Kitchen Scene

Hello my friends, I hope you are having a great saturday! This time on “My Favorite Scenes” I will share the amazing scene from 2014’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” that features Speedy Gonzales himself, Quicksilver (Evan Peters). If you have not seen the movie yet you are missing out on not only a great movie but also the best rendition of Quicksilver we’ve gotten in any movie/cartoon ever. In this scene he and his fellow mutants try to escape the Pentagon but get attacked by security guards in the kitchen. So what happens? Quicksilver saves the day by running around and doing awesome things to the tune of “Time in a Bottle” by Jim Croce. This scene is all kinds of great and I highly recommend seeing the movie if you have not.
Enjoy!

Movie Review: X-men – Days of Future Past (2014)

x_men_days_of_future_past_poster-High-Definition-www.hdwallpapers3d.co_1-1366x768

I love Marvel, you love Marvel, please Marvel give us a super crossover with all franchises and stop bitching about who gets what rights. Sorry, had to get that out of my system. To be completely honest I did grow up on Marvel more than DC. As a kid I watched shows like “Spider-man” or “X-Men: Evolution“. I guess I’ve always been a Marvel guy (But I do still love me some good DC stuff). I think that “X-men” have been a franchise that interested me more than most because of how diverse the characters and their powers are. You have a guy with Metal Claws and super healing and then one with Laser vision and a Demon Smurf who can teleport. Sorry, getting off track (But only a little). I simply love “X-men”. So of course I saw the movies that had their ups and downs. But now we have another one, directed by the guy who did the first two (Sidenote: He also did “The Usual Suspects”). So is this any good? Or should we burn that shit? Let’s have a look!

(X)Men and (X)women… “X-Men: Days of Future Past”.

So what is the plot of this movie? The future is complete shit. The mutants are being hunted down by these giant robots called Sentinels who were originally created by Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage). So what do our Mutant heroes do to try to stop them? They decide to send Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) back in time to stop the creation of them. Back in time he teams up with young Professor Xavier (James McAvoy) and young Hank McCoy/Beast (Nicholas Hoult) to stop Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) from causing the creation of the sentinels (Trust me, the movie will explain how that works). And while Wolverine is in the past doing his thing the other Mutants have to try to fend off the Sentinels attacking them. This plot might seem like it is all over the damn place but trust me, it is inredibly focused and well-written. I found the story to be engaging, suspenseful and just fantastic. I really loved how they handled it.

The characters in this movie never feel cluttered or underused, they all fit perfectly into this movie. And there are a lot of characters in this movie. They brought in pretty much everyone from the “X-men” franchise into this movie. And like I said, no one felt out of place, they all worked and were very unique an fleshed out. Here, let me mention some of the characters I missed earlier; Storm (Halle Berry), Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page), Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), Bishop (Omar Sy), Colossus (Daniel Cudmore) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender/Ian McKellen). But by far, the best character in the entire movie (My opinion) has to be Quicksilver (Evan Peters). He was pretty fucking awesome. There was also a risk using him since he could have been annoying… but he wasn’t. He was nothing but pure awesome, definitely my favorite in the movie. And I do not think I have to mention anything about the acting considering the cast. You have seen pretty much everyone in this movie in one way or another in previous insallments of the franchise or in other movies. They all gave great performances.

The score by John Ottman was nothing short of fantastic. Orchestral tracks for all kinds of situations. Need something for a big fight? You got it! Need something for a more subtle and quieter scene? Done! This soundtrack got it all! Besides, I might be slightly biased considering my love for many of John Ottman’s other works. Anyway, the score was awesome.

The way this movie was directed really hightened the experience for me. I already knew Bryan Singer was a great director with movies like the first two “X-men” movies and “The Usual Suspects” that I mentioned before. But this movie is probably his most well-directed one yet. It looks beautiful and never lingers on anything too long. The CGI in this movie was also really impressive. Sure, previous movies have shown great CGI too, but this is where you just Marvel (puns…) at it. It is magnificent. The action in this movie is also really great. It really gets better with the CGI too since it can elevate the scene since that is the only way these characters can really show their powers. I also have to mention how dark this movie gets at a few points. I mean sure, other Sci-fi action movies have been dark before, but this came as a big surprise to me. “X-men” movies haven’t been this dark before. And that really gave this movie a great edge.

People (and critics) really seemed to like this movie. On Rotten Tomatoes this movie has a 91% positive score and a “Fresh” certification. On Metacritic it has a score of 74/100. And finally on imdb.com it has an 8,1/10 and is ranked #204 on the “Top 250” list.

“X-Men: Days of Future Past” got a great story, great characters/acting, a great soundtrack, great visual effects, great action, great emotion, great humor and is delightfully dark. Now for the final score. Hey, Wolverine, will you help me cut this envelope open? Thank you! My final score for “X-Men: Days of Future Past” is a 9,82/10. This movie is great and of course gets the “SEAL OF APPROVAL!”

Movie Review: Inglourious Basterds (2009)

melanie-inglourious-basterds-hd-high-definition-203704

Let’s face it…Quentin Tarantino is the king of odd movies. “Pulp Fiction”, “Kill Bill”, “Django Unchained” to mention a few. But the thing is, these odd movies are for the most part good. I know I said I wasn’t the biggest fan of “Kill Bill vol. 1″, but in general I am a Tarantino fan. His odd movies are interesting. And back in 2009 he made a little WW2 movie (as if there weren’t enough of those). Now, is it good? Is it bad? Will this guy here like it? I mean it is a bit weird to see a Tarantino movie that doesn’t even have Samuel L. Jackson in it.

Ladies and Gents…”Inglourious Basterds”.

Shosanna (Mélanie Laurent) experienced a not too fun thing. One day when she was hiding under the floorboards of a man’s house to hide from Nazi’s…she and her family who hid were found. And who found them exactly? SS Colonel Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz). He and his men shot up the place, killing almost everyone. Shosanna managed to get away. Several years later she owns a cinema called “Le Gamaar Cinema”. She meets nazi soldier Fredrick Zoller (Daniel Brühl) and kind of strikes up an awkward relationship/friendship with him. Later when she finds out his new movie will play at her cinema and several high ranked nazi officers will be there she plots to get revenge.
But that is not all, there is a second story getting intertwined in it all. And that is the story of the American-Jewish group “The Basterds”. They are led by lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt). They are in the Nazi occupied france to kill every nazi they see. Among the troops we have Sergeant Donny “The Bear Jew” Donowitz (Eli Roth) who’s main way of dispatching Nazis is by caving their heads in with a baseball bat…ouch. Then we have Sergeant Hugo Stiglitz (Til Schweiger) who is mainly a big brute. And finally we have pfc. (private, first class) Smithson Utivitch (B.J. Novak) who is just another basterd. Of course there are more members of the team, but they are not really as majorly important to the movie as these guys. Anyway, they also meet up with british lieutenant Archie Hicox (Michael Fassbender) for a special plan…Now I am not going to say more? Because like any Tarantino movie, this is over-the-fucking-top. And that is pretty good. Still, this is a relatively straight forward and regularly paced movie. You can even notice a bit of it in “Django Unchained” how he have changed his still a little bit since we first saw him. And to be completely honest, that is probably for the better. Trust me. But still, really good story once you watch it and don’t sit here and listen to me.

The characters are fucking awesome. But that shouldn’t come as a surprise considering…again, this is a Tarantino movie. And in those types of movies, awesome characters are very common. They are all incredibly unique and just in general very entertaining to watch. There is nothing more to it really. I am very pleased with the choice of actors as well, they are PERFECTLY picked for their respective characters. I especially love the character of Hans Landa. Sometimes he can be the nicest and most polite person ever and then the next minute be as cruel as the devil himself. No wonder Christoph Waltz got an Oscar for the role.

The music…so good. There are a few orchestral pieces here and there but also include songs that use electric guitar. I really don’t have much to say…only that if I could meet the composer, I would kiss him/her on the forehead and then go down on my kness and yell “I’M NOT WORTHY, I’M NOT WORTHY!”.

General stuff there is nothing more than the obvious stuff like how this movie is violent and very bloody. But that is not much of a surprise considering this is a…you get it.

Reception for “Inglourious Basterds” was good. Rotten Tomatoes holds an 89% positive rating and a “Fresh” certification. Metacritic got a 69/100 on it. Roger Ebert gave this movie 4/4 stars and said this:

“Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds is a big, bold, audacious war movie that will annoy some, startle others and demonstrate once again that he’s the real thing, a director of quixotic delights.

imdb.com has the score of 8,9/10 and has it ranked #100 on their Top 250 list.
The movie was also nominated for eight Oscars, but only won one…Best Supporting Actor – Christoph Waltz.

I have praised this movie and told you a bunch of shit in this review and can finally give you a score. Score for “Inglourious Basterds” is a 9,62/10 and of course…the “SEAL OF APPROVAL!” This is one hell of a movie and I recommend you buy it.

Review of “Inglourious Basterds” is done.

Where is Samuel L. Jackson, Tarantino? Where are you hiding him!?
