Well....haven't written in a while....then again all I've been seeing is shitty movies so perhaps I may be forgiven. Today's review will be of the least shitty one I saw...although still wallowing in shit. I am really surprised at how many people actually like The Untouchables. How can a movie that involves people getting shot in the face and little girls getting blown up by briefcase bombs be so boring? (Although I did think the briefcase bit was priceless). And if I could possibly get past his security forces I would smack Kevin Costner in the face for how terrible he was in this movie. I mean, i can't say I expect a lot from him based on other efforts but this was just terrible...and his wife made me want to projectile vomit. What self respecting person leaves a note in her husband's luch that says "I am very proud of you"? How about "Don't get shot you fucker because if you leave me alone in the 30's with 2 kids I'll reveal all of your homosexual exploits in your obituary."? One thing I actually did find enjoyable about this movie (apart from the exploding girl) was the Canadian mountie bit. They were so damn stupid and trigger happy! Wonderful...I love the crazy laugh the fat captain gives as he fucks up the ambush plan. Maybe some stupid Canadians would have been offended by this moronic portrayal of our Mounted Police but this little Canuck was pleasantly tickled. Hmm...have I left anything negative unsaid? Ah yes, Robert DeNiro...god I hate that fucknut. i don't care who the hell he plays, good guy, bad guy, emu i can't stand to look at his smarmy little face and icky obvious mole. I'm not saying all actors have to be aesthetically pleasing...I'm just saying Robert DeNiro should burn his face off with acid. He's right behind Costner on my smacking list. Something about that guy just pisses me off.

PS. If I sound like a nasty PMS crackwhore in this entry, then fuck off...I had a perfectly acceptable day but then had to return home to my father.
PSS. If I spelled words wrong: fuck off
...and keep churnin' the erotic thrillers, Brian De Palma!! Don't get me wrong, The Untouchables wasn't bad but the movie was an uninspired work, if you ask me, and uninvolving compared to his other movies like Carrie, Blow Out, Dressed to Kill, Femme Fatale or even Body Double and Snake Eyes. The characters are one dimensional and even Al Capone, played by Robert De Niro, was not menacing and intimidating to me.


aaaaaaaa
Funny, I had to give them all the same rating. They were all really good, but none of these quite deserved a 10/10 rating.

Scarface lost the point because it was too 80s. Carlito's Way lost the point because it was too predictable (as soon as I saw that Benny kid for the first time, I knew what was going to happen in the end) and Untouchables was just not quite that good.

That's it for now. I'm not much of a reviewer, plus I just don't have the time.


THE UNTOUCHABLES (1987)

the more i watch this, the more i love it. by far my favorite De Palma film. De Niro is great and so is Connery. with a plethera of great scenes it adds up to be a great movie. plus it has one of the best scores ever. "if he pulls a knife, you pull a gun. he sends one of your guys to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. that's the chicago way." god this is good stuff.
yay for the untouchables
THE UNTOUCHABLES (blind buy): Surprisingly good. I dug Mamet's screenplay. I realize it has its fair share of detractors, though.

WHAT DREAMS MAY COME: Interesting. Wish I had seen it in its entirety and not broken up by commercials, so I won't apply a numerical rating to it. What I saw: :fresh:

HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN: Lots of haters for this one. Surprising. Enjoyed it much, much more than the (somewhat dry) first two films, which, though good, tend to drag. My friends seem to lament Cuaron's more liberal cutting of plot points. Didn't bother me a bit-- the visuals compensate for it.

DAWN OF THE DEAD ('78): Another blind buy. Very good, and surprisingly not TOO dated... the biker thing was out of left field, though.

CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN ('03): Watched it with my mom. The type of movie that you want to hate, but it tried so hard to make you like it, you can't help but feel guilty about hating it.

STUCK ON YOU: Pretty funny. Surprisingly sweet. Count me as a Greg Kinnear fan. (Matt Damon's alright, too.)

Still have to get around to watching SCARFACE... got it from Netflix... I'm in a De Palma-type mood, so I'll probably watch it tomorrow.
My all-time favorite movie. An absolute classic! Can't say enough
Comments pending.
I think this movie was the first gangster movie I ever watched and what a movie to start with!
This movie if fun and is based on some real facts about Al Capone (not all real facts, just some).
I loved watching this movie up to the part where whats-his-name wouldn't die even though his body was being pumped full of machine gun bullets, that scene was just a little bit too unbelievable.
But the story is clever even though it's not entirely original and it is a must see for all gangster movie lovers.
