Feed (2005)

Director: Brett Leonard this movie is really sick and twisted , at first i thought this would be just another predictable low rate movie but i found it to be really interesting . Alex O’Loughlin(michael), Patrick Thompson(phill) are very good actors if i do say so myself.   Like the 1st 5 mins into the movie its already action i dont recommend this movie to kids under the age of 17 like seriously this is not a movie you would want your kids to watch.  The character Phill is a cybercrime investigator so when him and his partner are searching the web you see some pretty sick thingg. He comes across this site where big women are the topic of men’s fanatsies . Juat the whole fact that these women are sooo big seems to interest i guess . So he sees this site where women are being forced fed , its really nasty and sad to see because this stuff actually happens .   Im not goin to write too much but i would recommend this movie  the ending is really shocking i think it is a must see...

Rated: Doubt (2008)

“Doubt is one of those movies that comes along every now and then where the acting trumps all else. Rarely are movies so effective at engaging the audience’s attention with deep themes and important messages, and even more rare does any of this NOT seem forced. Overall, Doubt is a well constructed and thought through movie; a small scale battle between well-played characters that you can’t help but find yourself drawn into.”

The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard

Cast: Jeremy Piven, Ving Rhames, David Koechner, Kathryn Hahn, James Brolin, Alan Thicke, and Ed Helms.  Plot: Don Ready (Jeremy Piven) and his crew of car salesmen (David Koechner, Kathryn Hahn, and Ving Rhames) are hired by Ben Selleck (James Brolin) of Selleck Motors. At first they are hired just to help with business over Memorial Day weekend. Their first day goes well and they sell plenty of cars. Don starts to get a little sweet on Selleck’s daughter Ivy, but she is already engaged to Paxton Harding (Ed Helms) who is in a “man band” with two of his other friends. Paxton’s dad, played by Alan Thicke, makes a deal with Selleck that if he can’t sell every car on his lot then he has to sell the company over to him. Selleck is going to need Don and his team, as well as his employees to help save the dealership. Breakdown: The movie offers up some laugh out loud moments but not enough of them. Some of the jokes fall flat and just aren’t really funny. Also there isn’t much of a story here. I mean yes there is some plot but overall this movie is relying on the plot of the movie. Some of the cast seems like there just in this for the paycheck while others make the best out of their performances. Performances: Jeremy Piven...

A Perfect Getaway

Cast: Steve Zahn, Milla Jovovich, Kiele Sanchez, Marley Shelton, Chris Hemsworth, and Timothy Olyphant.  Plot: A newlywed couple Cliff and Cydney (Steve Zahn and Milla Jovovich) travel to Hawaii for their honeymoon. They plan to do some hiking and go on some trails. On the way to a trail they meet another couple Kale and Cleo (Chris Hemsworth and Marley Shelton) who are hitchhiking their way around the islands. They also meet Nick and Gina (Timothy Olyphant and Kiele Sanchez) another couple who are on vacation together. Once they all find out that another newlywed couple was killed on another island they start to get suspicious of each other and try to figure out who the killers are. Breakdown: The movie starts off a little slow but once it gets going it doesn’t let up until the end. We don’t really find out a whole lot about our main characters but for this movie we don’t really need to. The only real problem I had with this movie was the many times they make us think these people are the killer or maybe it could be these people. It had too many red herrings and at times was a little too cliche. However, the brisk pace and convincing performances are what keeps this movie above average. Performances: The performances are mostly pretty good here. Steve Zahn gives a good performance....

The Final Destination

Cast: Bobby Campo, Shantel VanSanten, Nick Zano, Haley Webb, and Mykelti Williamson.  Plot: Baiscally the same plot as the others. Nick (Bobby Campo) and his friends (Shantel VanSanten, Nick Zano, and Haley Webb) are all attending a NASCAR race when Nick has a premonition that he, his friends, and a bunch of other people are going to be killed in a terrible crash. He gets himself, his friends, and a few other people out before the crash takes place and then the crash actually happens. Now after that everyone who was supposed to die in the horrible accident starts to die off in the order they were supposed to die in the crash. Really there is nothing new here. Breakdown: While this movie is for the most part an exact copy of the others with different ways of death, this one just didn’t have the same creepy feel that the other three films had. One thing is the pace of the movie is very fast because the movie is only an hour and fifteen minutes long, not including credits. Also the movie is stuctured horribly and other than people dying there is no real story here. At least with the other three we got to get a little bit into the characters before they bite the bullet. This time around right after the accident everyone starts dying. With the same director...
