Review: Black Snake Moan

Monday, June 4th, 2007

The title alone makes you wonder what the hell this movie is about. The dirty minded might even think there’s some sexual tension involved, and in this case, they would be correct. That’s actually the basis of this movie, and plant some very basic characters around it, and you have yourself a weird movie. However, inbetween the weirdness, there’s no real content. Made with the most minimalistic story building blocks, you have yourself an instant screenplay, but it isn’t one that can hold your interest for too long. It just lacks everything to make a movie special.5½.

Review: Zodiac

Monday, June 4th, 2007

A screenplay based on the real casefiles of the infamous Zodiac killer. Since it uses the books of Robert Graysmith, it also uses his interpretations, but from that point of view, it all seems very plausible.
This movie manages to merge an all-star cast with personal drama (but only a bit) and in-depth details of the crimes. This makes it engaging and involving, so there’s never a dull moment and David Fincher, how unusual it might sound, keeps it really light-hearted, and a few chuckles may be the result of it.8-.

My last comment about this plant was that it was “unnaturally abnormally genetically enhanced unhealthy”. So I thought, you know, everyone is saying it, “physical exercice is good for ya !”. So I turned the pot 90 degrees everyday, and since it always grows towards the light, behold the curly neck ! Anywayz, too much of everything will kill ya, and see one already giving up. Let that be a lesson to all of ya.

US Box Office

Monday, June 4th, 2007

With no real contenders opening this week, Pirates sails its way to the top spot again, adding another $43.2 million to the war chest, and a total of $216.6 million.
Opening at nr. 2 is comedy Knocked Up, starring Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl. While opening with $29.3 million seems like a worthy premiere, noting the $10.200 screen average means it doing serious business.
Shrek the Third continues its slow decline, now at nr. 3 with $26.7 million. Opening at 4 is Mr. Brooks, starring Kevin Costner in a bad guy role, with $10 million. Spidey 3 rounds out the top 5 with a steady 50% decline, swingin in at $7.5 million and a grand total of $318 million.
