Born Movie Reviews' "THE TOP TWENTY WORST FILMS OF ALL TIME"

I am a firm believer that there are more bad movies out there than there are good movies. To me, it's practically a fact. As a critic, it is my job, and partial passion, to observe certain bad films in each year so I can discourage them to public viewers. At the same time, I avoid many other horrible movies because, honestly, I deserve better too. As a result, there are most definitely other films out there that are worse than the following twenty. In addition, there are many movies out there that can easily be placed on this list -- films like Troll 2 or The Room. They won't be here. This list is dedicated to specifically films that were greenlit by big budget studios. So, here are the top twenty worst films of all time... that I had the misfortune of seeing:


20. PUSH

Push is the film that takes place in a world where there are nine types of superhumans, and centers on a group of people attempting to take down the government agency Division, which is using a drug to enhance powers. Starring Chris Evans and Dakota Fanning, Push does little to no explanation in its narrative. Worse, its script is familiar and cliche, without taking breaks to progress characterization. The minute the plot begins, the movie never holds up ever again, trotting along without a rhythm.

19. ALIENS VS PREDATOR REQUIEM

Yeah, this is the sequel to the first Alien vs Predator, where the Predator ship gets attacked by an Alien/Predator hybrid and crashes into a town. Of course, the Aliens run out and begin killing everyone. On the Predator home planet, a single lone Predator is assigned to clean up the mess. This entire film does nothing but show cardboard characters, who we do not care about, get brutally killed by either an Alien or a Predator. The violence and gore is definitely up there in the R-rating, but the worst thing is you can barely see a thing. The entire movie is dark, as in literally dark. Add on heavy rain, and the film becomes the greatest challenge to see what is going on. The editing is too fast, the camerawork is annoyingly shaky, the characters are shallow, and the violence is excessive, Requiem is the biggest excuse to make money.

18. FANTASTIC FOUR & FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER

For sure, a superhero movie becomes painstakingly bad when all the actors in the cast are terrible, whether they are facial expressions or line deliveries. Fantastic Four is the most goofy and cheesy entry to the superhero genre, with barely any substance that keeps the humanity in each hero. Though the visual effects themselves are entertaining and the makeup effect done on The Thing is admirable, the script is really what drained the powers away from Fantastic Four. As for the sequel, the same flaws plagued the film, and not even improved special effects and action sequences can save it. Oh and, I do not care how hot or sexy Jessica Alba is. She. can't. act.


17. RV

Out of all the lame Robin Williams comedies, RV is probably the most preposterous, in which you will find yourself laughing with guilt or facepalming with extreme embarrassment. The formulaic story of a disconnected family coming together on a road trip is getting old, and when the jokes are not fresh and the execution is not organic, the entire movie becomes very wheezy and contrived. For sure, Williams himself is very likable and there are very few moments where you pity him. Then again, you will feel bad for Robin Williams instead of his character, if you know what I mean. Directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, who did the Men in Black films, RV is a disappointing entry from both director and actor.


16. ERAGON

In terms of comparing it to the book, Eragon is an absolute disgrace, trashing away more than half of Christopher Paolini's novel. In terms of just a film, Eragon has one of the flattest acting in years, with a formulaic story of a farm boy who leaves his home to join an old man, finding himself drawn into a large conflict with an evil emperor. It is practically the story of Star Wars: A New Hope, but set in the world of Lord of the Rings. One sad thing about Eragon is the fact that Jeremy Irons and John Malkovich are both in the cast, sadly ruined. The effects are impressive, though, especially the dragon, which is probably the most faithful thing in the entire movie. The script, acting, directing, and execution, on the other hand, is the most dull direct-to-video quality I have seen in years. So don't even begin to ask me how it kills the novel. It kills itself.


15. SCOOBY-DOO & SCOOBY-DOO 2: MONSTERS UNLEASHED

There are so many films out there where it stars live-action actors and some computer-generated character, and they both share the screen together. Films like Alvin & the ChipmunksGarfield, and The Smurfs are just a few examples. I do not doubt that all those films can also be on my worst of all time list. Fortunately for me, I did not see those movies. Unfortunately for me, I did see both Scooby-Doo films, and they are horrible in the most embarrassing way possible. Though Matthew Lillard successfully pulls off an amazing impersonation of Shaggy, the rest of the cast has uncannily stiff acting, and the CGI work on Scooby can win a Razzie Award on its own. For a loud kids movie like this, both films actually manage to be "boring," in which nothing interesting happens. True, a lot of visual candy happens on screen, but nothing interesting in the story is there. Kids might get a kick out of it, but older audience members will surely not. In fact, when the kids grow up, both Scooby-Doo films will become prime examples of movies in which the kids will ask themselves in the future why they liked it when they were younger.


14. GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE

The directing may be more visually stylish than the previous film, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is plagued and cursed by some of the dumbest one-liners in movie history, along with an inconsistent performance by Nicolas Cage. The visual effects look like they belong in a film that is ten years older, and the camerawork is shaky once again, a classic trait that has infected so many action films today. Spirit of Vengeance is the prime example of a movie that had so much potential to improve on its predecessor, but this time the filmmakers did not even try. It is the worst film of 2012, and frankly, it is one of the worst films of all time.


13. BATMAN & ROBIN

What?! How can Batman & Robin be only #13 on this list? Because honestly truly, the next twelve films are worse than this, but that does not save the neck for Joel Schumacher's misfire. With one of the worst casts in a movie, Batman & Robin is full of dreadful dialogue, almost all of them delivered by Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze. The acting is inconsistent and ridiculous, and the sets are absolutely laughable, going from a forest-looking playground for kids to a set made for Batman On Ice. It's true that Batman & Robin can be a movie where you get entertainment by laughing at it, but in terms of a film, this piece of bat-junk is so limp and tongue-in-cheek, there is nothing much to say anymore.


12. ZOOM

There are bad Robin Williams movies, and then there are bad Tim Allen movies. Out of all of the bad Tim Allen movies, the worst one is probably Zoom, where the film leeches off of everything we have seen a couple years earlier, from The Incredibles to Fantastic Four to Sky High. Think of those three, and take away laughs, crowd-pleasers, and wit. It is so sad that Tim Allen has been in horrible films like this as well as such clever masterpieces like Galaxy QuestZoom is a shocking waste of time, a copycat for family movies that fails to have any substance. Come to think of it, the heroes here are kids... I just thought of another better film you can watch instead. Spy Kids. That makes four examples now.


11. KANGAROO JACK

If you have ever seen the trailer for the film as well, you were probably fooled into thinking that the kangaroo in the movie talks. Nope, that does not happen either. Worst marketing trick ever. I remember being fooled as a kid, and even as a kid, I was disappointed and mad beyond belief when I saw the actual movie. It was horribly dumb back then, it is still horribly dumb today. When the story is about a pair of losers attempting to retrieve money back from a wild kangaroo, you know that this movie does not even care. Worse, the film appeals to kids, and is rated PG, but I promise you, you will lose count how much violence and sexual jokes are in it. Completely unacceptable.

We are now in the top ten... things are about to get exceptionally bad... appallingly bad...


10. PREMONITION

Oh boy. Just like how Zoom trashes superhero films, Premonition trashes mystery thrillers like Memento and Sixth Sense. All you need to do is subtract logic, likable characters, and substance, and replace those elements with flashbacks, flashbacks, and... more flashbacks. Poorly acted by Sandra Bullock, though I do not blame her much, Premonition comes in with a shoe horned script of themes. Confusingly paced, the film creates no suspense nor a sense to care. And to make the movie even more out of the blue, the film becomes religious halfway in. If I were to pick one word to describe Premonition, it is "sloppy."


9. LOONEY TUNES: BACK IN ACTION

Let me start by saying I am a critic who actually enjoyed Space Jam, the famous collaboration between live actors and the lovable characters from the Looney Tunes cartoons. This time, the filmmakers attempt to do it again, but with the loudest energy and the smallest effort. The plot makes little to no sense, too looney and wacky beyond comprehension, and thus the pacing of the film is convoluted and jumbled up. For a film like Back in Action, it is even less tolerable when almost every frame is flooded with Looney Tunes characters, rendering the product as a visual cacophony. Watching Back in Action is like eating too much sugar, and someone asks you to imagine what a movie would be like if Looney Tunes was combined with an unfunny Brendan Fraser and Steve Martin with a horrible haircut.


8. THE HAPPENING

What?! How can The Happening be only #8 on this list? Because honestly, in a similar way as Batman & Robin, the next seven films are worse. Yes, this is the film that everyone talked about, as one of the worst films of M. Night Shyamalan, where the plot is about plants releasing a deadly toxin that causes humans to kill themselves. In contrast to Shyamalan's previous films like Sixth Sense and SignsThe Happening is very poorly acted and poorly written and is unbelievably slow in the pacing department. For sure, the film is boring, and once in a while is unintentionally funny, which leads me to call The Happening as one of the funniest films ever that never wanted to be funny. With Mark Wahlberg in the leading role and Zooey Deschanel in the supporting chair (why is she in this movie?), The Happening is so idiotic and incoherent.


7. DRAGONBALL EVOLUTION

You know, there are just some films out there where its sole purpose is to anger everyone. Fortunately for me, I was never a fan of Dragonball. At the same time, I know the pain that everyone felt. Dragonball Evolution to the original cult sensation is basically the Mortal Kombat movie to the original game. The film's CGI is good at some quick moments and then appear unrendered in others, the dialogue is terrible, the narrative overall does not ever try to have suspense, excitement, nor entertainment. This is not just a bastardization of the original series, it is a bastardization of filmmaking. I openly volunteer to stand on the receiving end of a Kamehameha wave...


6. SCARY MOVIE V

When a Scary Movie becomes bad even in terms of a Scary Movie, you know that all hope is lost. Scary Movie V is the prime example of a horror parody that no longer even tries at being a parody. It plays like an inside joke for a group of people, and because they have the money to make a movie, they make one and expect everyone else to be on board. Sadly, we're not and we never will be. Without Anna Faris, the film no longer has the charm and innocent ridicule in its content. In fact, in terms of style and jokes, this does not even feel like a Scary Movie. It is dumb, sloppy, and unorganized, and its funniest joke is a pop culture joke, not a parody on a horror film. The scariest thing about Scary Movie V, though, is the possibility of making another sequel...

Full review: http://dragoneyesmoviereviews.blogspot.com/2013/04/scary-movie-v-2013.html

This is it... the top five worst films of all time... This is the point where I start to get real angry...


5. SON OF THE MASK

..............Can I just say that this movie is so painfully *unfunny*? The worst part about it is you can see how hard the movie is trying to be funny without Jim Carrey as the lead character. The CGI is bad, the tone is crazy as if the director is high or had too much coffee, and the entire execution is stupid. There is no story worth talking about for this movie. This is just a cluster of loud scenarios in which things get wrecked. For sure, Son of the Mask is the worst sequel ever made. It will soon become a prime example of a $1 movie that is found at the bottom of bargain bins in stores like Wal-Mart. Believe me, it is not even worth the money for that. That one dollar can be used to buy something else. Some delicious little sweet deserves better.


4. THE CAT IN THE HAT

When the entire film is filled with double entendres, flat jokes, and potty humor, you know that The Cat in the Hat is truly fell downhill towards a pit. Mike Myers fails to charm the audience with his poor impression of the lively Cat, something that even Jim Carrey was able to pull off in How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Instead, Myers has created a character who annoys. The worst thing about this film is.... practically everything. The directing, the execution, the tone, everything. I cannot help but ask "What kind of sick person thought that this was appropriate to kids?" and "What kind of idiot thought that this would be funny and greenlit this?" You know another thing that's horrible about this film? Paris Hilton shows up in it...


3. CATWOMAN

This is the greatest disaster the superhero genre has ever faced, in which no one, not even the filmmakers, care for the hero. Even with Halle Berry as the lead, the film is led away by the director, who uses flashy images and no substance. Berry portrays a character who soon dies and is then revived as Catwoman. Why she is revived, the film never explains. In addition, just because she now has the traits of a cat does not mean she can now climb around buildings like a spider, or possess martial arts skills. Furthermore, Berry is just downright terrible in this movie, so terrible that it is impossible to believe that she has won an Oscar before. For sure, in the future, Catwoman is a superhero trash in which all future superhero trash would be judged. In the year 2011, when Green Lantern was released, I remember how bad the film was. In response, I told myself that at least it wasn't Catwoman. It is as if the film believes that we audience members are cats and have nine lives, and that the film is out to kill one of them. You think we lost one and have eight left? Sorry, you killed us.


2. THE LAST AIRBENDER

You were waiting for me to talk about this one, right? Am I allowed to say I'm too tired to talk about this? Am I allowed to just link you to the full review that I have written in the past? Because by now, you probably already know everything that is wrong with The Last Airbender, which is basically... everything. I will just be straightforward here: The Last Airbender is one out of two films in which I have given a rating of zero. The other film is coming up...

Full review: http://dragoneyesmoviereviews.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-last-airbender-2010.html


1. MOVIE 43

.......No, I still don't know why it is called Movie 43. I have no idea, okay? But I do know that I want to burn this movie 43 times, and I have made more than 43 attempts to forget this movie. Sadly, they have all failed. This is not a movie. This is a crime against filmmaking that represents everything wrong with Hollywood and the film industry in America today. Period.

KICK-ASS 2 (2013) - Jeff Wadlow

Kick-Ass, known as one of the most notoriously controversial films in recent years, is a cynical but absolutely clever and entertaining film. For no reason whatsoever did it need a sequel, even when the original comic did. The film represented a satirical approach on all modern action hero tropes, and executed its narrative with a humorous tone, intentionally over-the-top and ridiculous. In terms of a continuation, this new entry works at some times and doesn't work at other times.

The way Kick-Ass 2 opens is a bit disappointing, for it is practically a carbon copy of Chloe Moretz' and Nicolas Cage's scene in the river basin in the previous film. The only difference is the basin scene in the first film was die-hard hilarious. This one here felt unoriginal.

Kick-Ass 2 revolves around Dave Lizewski, (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), who has retired from fighting crime as Kick-Ass. On the other hand, he has inspired other ordinary citizens to become heroes. He soon joins a team called Justice Forever, led by Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), upset over the fact that his friend Mindy Macready (Chloe Moretz) aka Hit-Girl is attempting to live an ordinary life. In the meantime, Chris D'Amico (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) plots revenge against Kick-Ass for the murder of his father in the previous film (sorry, that is indeed a spoiler for the first film). With a new supervillain identity called The Motherf***er, D'Amico assembles a gang of villains against our heroes.

If I could make one single change for this film, it would be to change the protagonist to Hit-Girl instead, which brings me to what is probably the best thing about Kick-Ass 2. Like all of the best superhero films, Kick-Ass 2 addresses the human behind the mask, who the characters really are. As mentioned before, a big subplot of the film is Hit-Girl attempting to live a normal life. She makes friends with popular girls in her class and she tries out for the school's dance team. Of course, she is different from everyone else, and they do not take her in like they should. Moretz, compared to her previous appearance in the first Kick-Ass, looks a lot older this time around, a lot more mature. Clearly, her performance is much more fresh, as we get to see a new dimension to the character that is Mindy Macready. We have all seen Hit-Girl before, but we have never got to meet the true girl behind that purple outfit. Here, you most certainly do, and for me, I followed Mindy throughout the entire film more than I followed Kick-Ass himself. Although, I would have appreciated it a lot more if director Wadlow pulls an emotional artistically filmed scene where Mindy is having an imaginary moment with her Nicolas Cage father, for example in a moment where she is just feeling down.

Jim Carrey pulls off one of the weirdest performances in his whole career, since I still have trouble believing that he of all people portrayed the Colonel in this film. I can happily say, though, that his act is organic to watch and is entertaining to see on screen. When he leads the group, he lights up the capability of this small but helpful band of heroes. With his leadership, Justice Forever goes from feeding poor people to patrolling the streets to shutting down brothels. As the film progresses, the narrative hints that this group of heroes will eventually clash against the Motherf***er's gang of villains.

In terms of a villain, Mintz-Plasse keeps the odd personality of Chris D'Amico in this film. Whether he is dressed up as Red Mist from the previous film or the new villain in this film, he still has moments where the audience can see that he is still... well... human. In some ways, these moments help makes us laugh. In other ways, it just takes away the intimidation of the villain. He's wealthy for sure, and he is capable of buying all kinds of weapons to blow things up, but the person himself is never scary nor unpredictable. D'Amico may be trying to avenge his father's death, but he comes forth as a wealthy cry-baby who wears his mother's sex outfit and does wicked things. Yes, that black leather outfit that we have all seen in the posters and trailers is a sex outfit. Therefore, in terms of a villain that needs to carry the entire film on his shoulders, The Motherf***er is just inevitably short of Mark Strong's Frank D'Amico in the previous installment.

Unfortunately, in terms of substance, Kick-Ass 2 is too straightforward. With a different director, the film goes on a steam roller one-dimensionally without any attempt at deconstructing its genre. Surely, there are still funny moments here, but almost none of them have any form of wit or irony that the previous film had. In many ways, Kick-Ass 2 became the film that the first Kick-Ass was addressing. It lacks the Tarantino spark, the guilty pleasure, and the shocking cynical charm. Here, the film is a simplistic action film about a group of vigilantes and villains, but they are all just humans wearing masks. It is dark and emotional at some moments, but the plot is easy and does not carry on with a self-aware mentality. Never once during the film did Kick-Ass 2 remind us, "Look at how absurd everything on screen is." Though it was created as an anti-comic, and the previous film successfully served as an anti-film, this new entry went back to normal roots. Because of this, the excessively bloody violence and vulgarity becomes less tolerable. Something offensive that used to be funny is no longer funny here. Soon enough, the film can feel dry and unpleasant, even when the film builds to an entertaining climax.

In conclusion, Kick-Ass 2 is a tolerable but less satisfying continuation of the first film. It served the role of a sequel well in maturing characters by progressing Hit-Girl's character arc, and the entire subplot is enhanced by Chloe Moretz' performance. For its action sequences, they are surely entertaining to watch. You can watch the film just for that, or for Jim Carrey, or for Moretz, but the film this time lacked political incorrectness and amusing catharsis, and gave its predecessor a good kick in the ass.

WHALE RIDER (2002) - Niki Caro

This film, in which its content appears to be feminist, is the best of its kind, in which it settles an empowerment theme on top of undertones of communication and family traditions. To quote Roger Ebert, Niki Caro's film "sidesteps all of the obvious cliches of the underlying story and makes itself fresh, observant, tough and genuinely moving."

Whale Rider takes place in present-day New Zealand, and revolves around Paikea Apirana (Keisha Castle-Hughes), a twelve-year-old Maori girl who lives with her family and tribe. In the tribe's culture, the leader should be the first-born grandson, which is a direct patrilineal descendant of Paikea the Whale Rider -- the one who rode on top of a whale from Hawaiki. When Pai's father (Cliff Curtis) refuses to assume leadership, wanting to pursue a career as an artist in Germany, Pai herself expresses interest in becoming a leader. However, not only is she given little encouragement by her grandfather Koro, she is also condemned and blamed for any conflicts that occur within the tribe. Although the role of chief is reserved for males only, Pai is determined to chase her dream.

As mentioned before, Whale Rider appears to be formulaic in the dream-chasing genre, where the protagonist pursues a goal that is viewed by many others as virtually impossible or improbable. I would respectfully say that the film is only predictable in the plot department. The narrative, on the other hand, is refreshingly original and raw to follow, especially in the chemistry between Pai and Koro. For the relationship of grandfather and granddaughter, they love each other very much. However, in the tradition of the tribe, Koro doubts Pai, questions her skills, and insists to everyone that she is nothing but a girl, something that is not worthy of the role of chief. For Pai's perspective, you can see how much she feels hurt, how she almost left the tribe with her father but was compelled to stay.

Pai is so amazingly portrayed by Castle-Hughes, a newcomer in the film industry. This is her first film, and I, along with other critics like Ebert, can say that she is already a movie star. In many moments, you can see the determined, hurt, and noble female she is. In other scenes, you can see the innocent child she is. Castle-Hughes, nominated for Actress in Leading Role for this film, finds the balance between the two traits, creating such a lovable and sympathetic character. There is a scene that takes place in an auditorium... which is practically the scene that gave Castle-Hughes her Oscar nomination. For sure, it is one of the best scenes in the film, if not the best.

Finally, on a surprising note, Whale Rider finishes with an unexpected third act, a climax that comes where we did not predict from, again proving that the film is still original in its own way. The best part is that this climax combines every single theme that the film has been emphasizing on since its first shot, into one magnificent marriage of substance.

In conclusion, Whale Rider is more than just an uplifting film. It is a combination of inspiration and determination, empowerment and communication, and this is all led by one single powerhouse performance. In the thematic department, its narrative is patient and gentle enough to seduce us with its coming-of-age content. It may finish the way you expected based on plot, but its transcendent ending inspires still, and the experience of viewing the film is -- you cannot help but admit -- unique.

SIGNS (2002) - M. Night Shyamalan

I have mentioned this several times before when I review horror films: The key in terrifying the audience is not what we see but what we don't see. Tension and suspense building paves way to our scary imaginations. The scariest part is if our imaginations are never confirmed on screen. You are not shown the creatures, but you see the destruction they have caused. Back in his prime, M. Night Shyamalan proves his talent in horrors and thrillers with Signs.

Signs revolves around former Episcopal priest Graham Hess (Mel Gibson) who, with his brother Merrill (Joaquin Phoenix) and two children (Rory Culkin, Abigail Breslin), discovers a series of crop circles in his Pennsylvania cornfield. The family slowly becomes convinced that the phenomena is a result of extraterrestrial life.

As the poster suggests, the film explores crop circles, the large geometric shapes in corn fields, seen all over the world in the 70s. When the 90s came around, these crop circles were later confirmed to be hoaxes. Signs takes on these, well, signs, to evoke the possibility that they are navigation tools for aliens to land. The best part about the film is the aliens are not even the crux of the film...

The film proves Shyamalan's talent as a director, that is when his career used to be promising and Oscar-worthy. Instead of using visual-driven shocks and disturbing images, Shyamalan produces what we would call "a quiet film." Signs tugs tension the same way classic Hitchcock films play out, using familiar objects and sounds, in which silence is the key to the terror. In agreeing with Roger Ebert, "it is not just what we hear that is frightening. It is the way Shyamalan has us listening intensely when there is nothing to be heard. There is as little plot as possible, and as much time and depth for the characters as [Shyamalan] can create, all surrounded by ominous dread." With the help of news broadcasts and radio broadcasts, the confusion and paranoia stirs more and more.

There is a scene in this film... in which my hair always rises and I always get a rippling chill... no matter how many times I watch it... 

James Newton Howard's score here is, without a doubt, one of his greatest works in the film/music industry, on par with The Village. Though there are many moments in the film where the scene is dead silent, the music, like the direction, is all about buildup. It can build up even if you are just listening to the soundtrack and not viewing the film. Howard creates a melody with faint repetition but lasting power, all on an emotional basis. For sure, the soundtrack's "Hand of Fate Part 1" sounds very different from "Hand of Fate Part 2," but both tracks play with anxiety, shivers, and regained faith.

Mel Gibson, portraying a priest who has lost his faith, paces his shuddering and trembling with much experience and precision. With a helpful, quiet, and economically written script, the film assists the cast in adapting the fears and emotions onto the screen. Gibson's chemistry with Phoenix on the screen is both intriguing and heartwarming to watch, and even more compelling when the two children are in the scene as well, and since the four characters are pretty much the core of the cast, you have classic filmmaking gold.

Signs, in similar ways to Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds, is not about the aliens. It is never about the aliens. It is about the response, actions, and emotions given by the human characters, when they live in an ordinary place and they experience something extraordinary. For War of the Worlds, Tom Cruise's character slowly becomes the father figure he did not have before he started taking care of the kids. Here in Signs, Gibson's character is slowly tested in his personality and faith. In fact, halfway through the film, his character goes into a short monologue, explaining about people who sees signs and miracles, and other people who just believe in pure luck. The film then temporarily goes on to explore the philosophical theme of coincidences and consequences, all while feeding the tension that the characters and the audience are going through. By the time the aliens reach the front door, and you see their silhouettes glide past the windows, things start to get truly scary in Signs.

In conclusion, Signs is one of the greatest thrillers of all time, and arguably M. Night Shyamalan's best film, rivaling The Sixth Sense. Fortunately, the film finds a delicate balance between scaring us and touching us. With a pounding score by James Newton Howard, slow patient filmmaking by Shyamalan, and influential acting by Gibson and Phoenix, Signs is an intense suspenseful piece that delivers its substance no matter how many viewings are had. It delivers even if you just think about it.

Story: Real Gangsters tells the story of the Lo Giacamo family, one of the most successful crime syndicates in New York City. Run by cousins Vincent Lo Giacamo (Nick Mancuso) and Jack Lo Giacamo (Frank D'Angelo) Real Gangsters shows how these two men maintain control of their dangerous extended family and volatile business ventures by very different means. Vincent is the politician, the man who always has a plan to help keep the peace, find common ground, bind blood and commerce and grow the family into a billion dollar empire. Jack is the muscle, the hot head, ruthless and uncompromising he lives in the moment and executes his actions based on how he feels. Unfortunately for these two men, these two philosophies don't always work together. Jack enforces his code of duty and honor with a brutal finality that sometimes destroys Vincent's creative scheming. Jack also finds himself unexpectedly protecting the underdogs in his neighborhood that sometimes creates more trouble for him than it's ... Written byAnonymous

TAKE SHELTER (2011) - Jeff Nichols

It is painfully sad when bad films that appeal to a wide audience make hundreds of millions of dollars, while a magnetically powerful film like Take Shelter grossed less than four million dollars… against a five million dollar budget… Still, for true filmmaking seeking people, this Critics Week Grand Prix winner at Cannes is surely one of the greatest films of 2011.

Take Shelter takes place in Lagrange, Ohio, and revolves around Curtis LaForche (Michael Shannon), a young husband and father who works in construction and raises a middle class family. His six-year-old daughter is deaf, and his wife Samantha (Jessica Chastain) sells self-woven works to keep a manageable amount of money, hoping that one day they can afford surgery to help their daughter. Out of nowhere, Curtis begins to find his life plagued by apocalyptic visions, fearing that a storm of incredible proportions is approaching. To the confusion of his wife, he begins to build a storm shelter in their backyard, which slowly begins to strain the family's financial status as well as inner relationships.

To quote Roger Ebert, Take Shelter is "a frightening thriller based not on special effects gimmicks but on a dread that seems quietly spreading in the land: that the good days are ending, and climate changes or other sinister forces will sweep away our safety." Throughout the entire film, Jeff Nichols provokes us to ask the burning question: "Are Curtis' visions true, or is he going crazy?" Not only would you care about the family and Curtis, but you would constantly be alert seeking the truth. And to make things more intense, Curtis' family has a psychological history -- his mother suffered from paranoid schizophrenia the same age that Curtis is currently.

It is a disgrace that the 2011 Oscars did not nominate Michael Shannon for Actor in Leading Role. With his facial ticks and long pauses of not speaking, Shannon pulls off the most mysterious performance of the year. Is he becoming mental? Is he truly seeing the future? And if he is indeed seeing the future, what is going to happen? There is a part of us that trusts him, but another half stays cautious. As for the mother role that Jessica Chastain holds, she here has more room portraying emotion and confusion for a caring wife compared to her other role in The Tree of Life, also a film in 2011. Ironically, she plays practically the same character in both films. But surely, her performance is more raw and powerful here.

In the film's background, Nichols gives the most economic filmmaking seen in years, the type of filmmaking that has never been appreciated enough. He smartly picks when to cut from one shot to the next, when to leave the camera just sit and observe characters. Here in Take Shelter, he chooses camerawork and editing very carefully, methodically, and ends up manipulating the entire pace of the film, and as a result, he puts the entire audience on the edge, pulling us along as if we are Nichols' puppets. The best part about this is you want to be pulled along. 

In addition, Nichols here demonstrates a strong and prudent collaboration with David Wingo, the music composer for the film. For most of Take Shelter, there is no music. The orchestra and musical sound effects only roll in when necessary. Once they do, the impact is twice as strong. The emotion and suspense builds so quickly once the musical notes kick in. Again, this falls back into the idea that Nichols directs his film very carefully. I cannot stress this more. Everything in Take Shelter is so exquisitely crafted, and that is what makes the film so magnetic and organic, one of the most captivating independent films ever made.

In conclusion, Take Shelter is a film that goes back into suspenseful well-paced filmmaking, with patient directing, careful shooting, and powerhouse acting. All filmmakers and film critics need to see Take Shelter, for it represents everything that major money-hungry studios are ignoring, and is not only one of the best films of 2011, but also one of the most haunting American films ever made in years.
