I am a flick addict, so I love to watch movies and shoot my own.

Curse Of The Golden Flower (english review).

Now that director Zhang Yimou had international success with his previous movies Hero and House Of The Flying Daggers, he was able to win old Asian actor stars for his newest production: Gong Li, who we have last seen next to Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx in the Miami Vice movie as well as Chow Yun Fat, who is known for his roles in John Woo‘s classic action movies and through Ang Lee‘s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Curse Of The Golden Flower tells the story of emperor Ping (Chow Yun Fat) and empress Phoenix (Gong Li), who try to finish each other off through various methods. Like in a game of chess follows twist after twist, and as time passes, the audience understands more and more about the connections of the two as well as their three children. While the empress was never able to win the heart of the emperor and thus lives in sadness since years, the first wife of the emperor is seeking revenge. Everyone uses the children to follow their each interests, they are used by the mighty ones like warriors, not like their own breed. The story is too confusing and difficult to write down, […]

Creep (english review).

In the german-english production CREEP we are taken by the new Scream-Queen Franka Potente to the London subway and shown it’s monsters. The first scene in the movie shows us already, that we have to deal with something evil: In nice dark pictures we see how two workers from the canalisation get killed by something frightening that makes weird sounds. Then we get the normal cut, like always in horror movies, and we are introduced to the main character, played by Franka Potente. Kate is her name, and she seems to work for some kind of public relations agency. She tells her colleagues at a party that she’s going to club tonight where George Clooney hangs around, and that she wants to have sex with him. To get to this club, she must use the subway though. Good for her, that shes going to catch the last train. But while waiting on it, the alcohol starts working, and so she takes a nap. After a short time she wakes up and realizes that she is now caged into the subway since all exits have been closed. But somehow suddenly another train arrives, and so she jumps in. After some seconds […]

Cabin Fever.

Okay, also diese eMail habe ich an Harry Knowles von Aint It Cool News geschickt, um dort so vielleicht auch mal was veröffentlicht zu bekommen… Ist in english, sorry! Hello! Yesterday Cabin Fever was screened here in the 17th Fantasy Filmfest, so I went to see it. It starts like zillions of other horror movies, five pupils rent a cabin to make a hollyday there. Then the horror begins, nothing new here ;) Well, what do you want to hear? The trailer tells you already that there is a fever, and it catches one of girls. Then the other freak out, put her away, and try to get help. Too bad that they smashed their car up bad when some bloody guy and asked for help. Cause they wouldnt help, so he tried to grab their truck and they started shooting at him in the truck and hit him with baseball bats. That scene was the moment where the movie decided to be yet another horror flick, I mean NOBODY would have done that, not even some sicko big city kids. I saw another movie here at the Filmfest which was from Denmark and was called MIDSOMMER, now THAT movie […]
