Splice

Wow.  This was terrible.  Bad acting from two people I really love, worse writing.  Terrible FX/CGI, no tension and a completely boring film.  People actually liked this?

Grade F
What film did you see? This was fantastic horror with a lot of compelling moral and social quandaries. Do you usually go for horror flicks to begin with?

overall it was better than an F for sure but the final 30 minutes were pure F.

Madness...  Final 30 min were great and tied story together.

If by tied the story together you mean came completely out of left field having nothing at all to do with the previous 3/4 of the film. :D But we can stick to the spoiler thread for this.

I don't know if the molecular biologist in me could take Splice.

I don't know if the molecular biologist in me could take Splice. 

It couldn't, the biology is atrocious. It was clearly written by someone who had barely passed high school biology and sort of remembers some of the sexier things but didn't really understand them.

Its more of a manual on how to properly raise a child, and an advert for spaying your pets...

Great review Sam.  Agree with you on all counts.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch (John Cameron Mitchell, 2001)

Of the directors I would consider for a great directors list, John Cameron Mitchell is almost certainly the least conventional. And Hedwig and the Angry Inch has no business being a film I like. Among other things, it is structurally messy, jumping around and never really giving you a sense of time or place. Yet there is such a fantastic attitude and character embodied by Hedwig and his disintegrating search for identity.

[...]

Anyway, I'm not sure I can really say Hedwig is a great film. It doesn't really speak to me in any profound way, certainly less than I remember, and is a little too frenetic to want to watch it a lot. However, it is still a fascinating character and has great music that makes me want to see a staging of the play because I think that could be very intense with live music.

Rating: 4/5
