The Crow

The movie I am going to review now is The Crow, starring Brandon Lee. This movie was released in 1994. This movie is about a rock musician, named Eric Draven, played by Lee, who comes back to life to avenge the death of him and his girlfriend Shelly. Eric and Shelly were supposed to be married on Halloween, but were killed by four criminals named Dunboy, Tin Tin, Skank, and T-Bird. They were killed in their apartment on what was known as Devil's Night.
Eric and Shelly were killed because they wanted to get the apertments in their neighborhood cleaned up. A year later we see Eric come back to life to avenge the death of him and his girlfriend. When he does this, he kills the criminals in order of how they raped his girlfriend. While going after each person Eric is guided by a crow.
This movie shows and teaches people that no matter what happens to you, for example or if you move, many people will always remember and love you. This happens with a lot of people.
Out of 10 stars I give the Crow eight stars.

Third Clerks II Blog

I know people are getting bored with me posting about Clerks II, but let me just say this. This movie is the best damn movie out this summer. I don't care what this annoying horny thirteen year old girls, who love Johnny "I'm gayin' it up since 21 Jump Street" Depp say. They have no idea what they are talking about. First off, I know Senor Depp has been around for like ever, but, Jay and Silent Bob are way better than him. Why? Because two is better than one.
Now, please let me start my third review. Again, I'll repeat this, for the millionth f'n time. Here it goes: THIS IS THE BEST MOVIE OF THE SUMMER!!!!!!!!! I don't know how many times I can and will say this. This movie is a 90 minutes laugh fest from start to finish, and I am not talking about a person from Finland.
I am a big fan of Mr. Smith and I have my cousin to thank for that and here it goes: THANK YOU!!! This movie is the movie that maybe a sequel. Maybe some people may think this is a "remake," but I don't. Please don't say that to me or any Kevin Smith fan.
All I am saying is, listen and listen good!!! BEST MOVIE OF THE SUMMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

House of 1000 Corpses

The movie that I am reviewing today is the 2003 movie, House of 1000 Corpses, written and directed by Rob Zombie. This is a very unusual horror movie. It is way more unusual that most horror movies Such as Halloween or the Nightmare on Elm Street Movies.
This movie takes place on Halloween weekend in 1977. It tells the story of four kids who are traveling around and are going to write a book on tourist road side attractions. The movie starts to get interesting when they pull into a gas station with one of these attractions. The name of the place is Captian Spaulding's House of Madmen. The four kids: Jerry, Denise, Bill, and Mary go through this ride that Captian Spaulding has in the attraction. This is where they hear the "ledgend" Dr. Satan. Of course, after hearing this, Jerry has to go find out where they can find out more about Dr. SATAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Unfortunatley, it didn't turn out they way the kids thought. Things got worse for them. They wound up having an encounter with the Firefly family, which again didn't turn out the way they wanted.
If you wanna find out more about this, watch the movie. I give it 7 out of 10 stars, because it was Zombie's first movie!

Next upcoming blog

The next upcoming blog that I will put up will be about the Rob Zombie Movie House of a 1000 Corpses. I will post about new and old movies that I have seen. Right not I am currently re-watching this movie so I can get everything straight again. It's not that I forgot the story, it's just that i want to pick up more info, from the movie, so I can give my opinion, and tell you what parts I enjoyed and didn't enjoy. I also want to grasp the idea of why these things were done, other than the characters being maniacs; but also other things like, why the scene played out like it did, or why it didn't. Just be ready for the next blog.

Second Clerks II Blog

Today I saw Clerks II again. This time around it was way better than the first time I saw it yesterday. There are manythings that make this movie. I'll get in to that in a minute. It is and was a great choice for Kevin Smith to bring back one last time. I surely do hope that Mr. Smith (not the one who goes to Washington), brings back Jay and Silent Bob for another movie prefrebly Clerks III. I would love to se that in every way possible. It would make people such as myself happy. I know it would make some others very unhappy, and I know a few who would be, but I am not naming names. But that's an all together different story that doesn't belong in this blog.
One thing that made me very happy about Clerks II was getting to see long time friend of Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes back on the big screen. This made me very happy, because he (being Mewes), had to keep a deal with Kevin Smith, which he did and got to keep the role of Jay. If Jay wasn't playing Jay in this movie I honestly dont think it would have been as good as it was. I say this, because with a guy like Mewes playing a character that is basically him, it wouldn't feel right with some one like Seth Green playing this role, because there is only one Jay, and that is Mr. Mewes himself.
I have to give all these talented people credit for what they had done. This is all for this blog.

Clerks II

Just came back from seeing the all time best movie of the summer. Let me guess, "What is that you ask?" The name ofthe movie Clerks II. The very long awaited sequel to Kevin Smith's 1994 cult classic hit Clerks (which is the most stolen movie from all movie stores). The movie stars Brian O'Hallaran as Dante, Jeff Anderson as Randal, Jason Mewes as Jay (aka the letter "J", sorry odd Clerks Cartoon Refference), Kevin Smith as Silent Bob, and Rosario dawson as Becky. Let me tell you this right now again, hands down BEST MOVIE OF THE SUMMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Forget Johnny Depp and The Pirates movie, this gets it.

This movie pretty much picks up where the original left off. It is as great as the original, maybe even better! I don't know it's a close call, but still it is one hell of a movie. There were also bit parts played by other View Askewians, such as Ben Affleck, Jason Lee, Ethan Suplee, Jennifer Schwalbach Smith (wife to Silent Bob himself), and Scott Mosier. This movie was hysterical hands down all 90 minutes of it. It is one hell of a movie, that everyone should go see, even if you aren't a fan of the Kevin Smith "weed" movies. It is great! If you haven't seen the first one and then see this. Clerks helps you understand the plot of Clerks II

This gets 10 out of 10 stars in my book.

Rocky Horror

The Second review I am going to do is for the greatest B-movie ever made. That Would be the Rocky Horror Picture Show. To me this is the greatest B-movie ever made because of the cast of people who did this movie and are now famous. The cast consisted of Tim Curry as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Susan Sarandon as Janet Wiess a Heroine, Barry Bostwick The Hero (the mayor from TV's Spin City), and Meatloaf the Ex-delivery Boy.
I really believe that this is the greatest B-movie ever made because of the cult it has picked up in the last thirty some odd years. It has a bigger following that another movie that I also believe is a cult classic Clerks (I will be doing a review for Clerks II Later on today). It has a cult following, because of the way the audiences who see it respond and how they react to happens in the movie. To show that it has a great classic following because there are many people who get into character when they watch the movie.
Out of ten I'd give this eight stars. The reason I give it eight out of ten, is because of the weirdness factor of the movie.

The first movie review

The first two movies that I will review are going to be Hoodwinked, and Chicken Little. Both of these are Disney Pixar movies, that were incredibly well done. When I heard that these two movies were going to be made, I thought to myself, this isn't going to sell well to many people. I will tell the truth that I did not want to see them, because I thought "this is stupid. These are stupid little kiddy movies that nobody will enjoy!" After people telling me that these were great movies, I still didn't believe them. It was "who do they think they are telling the movie man to go see a movie." It didn't see logical to me.

Just recently I had stopped in the Blockbuster (which is becoming "lackluster"), and saw that they were having a deal on DVD's. The deal wasn't that bad it was a three DVD's for $20.00. I thought this wasnt that bad of a deal. The first time I stopped in the store I saw Hoodwinked, which, I thought to myself, could be a good movie. So it was one of the three that I bought. The next day I wound up buying Chicken Little.

Later that day I wound up watching Hoodwinked. I thought it was very, very interesting, because it tells five different stories of Little red Riding Hood. It starts off by telling us the story as we know it; which is that Red (as she's now known) goes to bring her grandma goodies. Of course it doesn't turn out that way. At one point in the movie, the Wolf, Grandma, Red, and Kirk the Woodsman, are all in Grandma's house. A short while after the police show up and we hear four different stories, from the four characters. I won't ruin, the rest of the movie for every one, so out of a possible 10 stars I give Hoodwinked, nine out of the 10.

The other Disney Pixar movie that I recently watched was Chicken Little. This was adapted from the Children's story about a little chicken who said the sky was falling. After saying, this nobody believes him. So through out the movie he has to find a way to prove that he is not crazy and the "sky was falling." SO he does something with his friends and tries to clear his name which doesn't work out so well. Later on in the movie, he again alerts the town that the sky is falling, but they don't believe him at all.

After that he does prove that something did fall from the sky, but I won't tell you what it is. This movies is a great adaptaion of this famous children's story. Out of 10 stars I give it an 8.5, just because of having Garry Marshall doing a voice.
