Posts Tagged ‘The Magnificent Seven’

maxresdefault (1)One of the coolest concepts in film that was ever created in my opinion was the idea I call the Groundhog Day effect. The film inspired a movement where a certain character relives the same day over and over again to fix a wrong or change their ways. It’s a cool effect as long as it is done properly and when I viewed the trailer to today’s film Happy Death Day I thought that the film had potential. Tree Gelbman (Jessica Rothe) is your typical sorority girl who parties it up, but has a reputation to hold so that she doesn’t do the walk of shame. One thing is for certain and that is she has a hard time celebrating her birthday and this particular birthday is about to be a bigger burden. You see she keeps reliving the day of her death over and over again until she can figure out who is murdering so that it stops. The film also stars Israel Broussard (Flipped) as Carter, Ruby Modine (Shameless) as Lori, Rachel Matthews as Danielle, Charles Aitken (The Knick) as Gregory, Rob Mello (The Magnificent Seven) as Jeffrey Tombs, Caleb Spillyards (Into The Badlands) as Ted, Laura Clifton (The New Guy) as Stephanie, and the film was directed by Christopher Landon (Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse ). 

Happy-Death-DayThis is one of those films where you try to think that you are smarter than the writer of the film or at least you want to prove to him that you’re not that stupid. I immediately had three suspects that I had chosen from watching the film and I have to say that I should have gone with my first choice. My second choice looked like the jackpot winner until the writer fooled me and showed me that I should have gone with my initial choice. For the most part I thought that it was actually a pretty decent film for a PG-13 even though I could have hoped for an R for one scene. Nonetheless, it was well executed until the focus changed and it all became about her doing what was right by everyone as the motivation to live. There’s this sob scene with her dad that I could have done without, but I get why it’s there. Other than that, it was a pretty decent flick which gives a nod to Groundhog Day which I thought was cool of them to acknowledge it. Is the best horror film ever made, well no it isn’t, but it’s the season for horror films so why not. Just think of the film as Sorority Girls meets Groundhog Day and this is the film that you kind of have. I hope that makes sense to all of you, but I am going to give the film an B+ for a final grade.

3165965Last week we took a break when it came to having an Ass Whoopin Wednesdays film because we were busy watching another film for our 365 movies in 36 days challenge blog. So this week, we decided to pick a film Chow Yun-Fat (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) that we’ve always wanted to watch in The Replacement Killers. John Lee (Yun-Fat) is one of the best assassins that money can buy. After a drug lord’s (Kenneth Tsang) son gets killed, John is tasked with doing a revenge job for him, but John’s conscience gets in the way and he fails to do the job. Knowing that he failed to do it, he will seek the help of a documents forger (Mira Sorvino) to get papers to go back to China. The only problem is that the drug lord has already hired replacement killers to not only finish the job, but to take you out as well. The film also stars Michael Rooker (Guardians Of The Galaxy) as Det. Zedkov, Jürgen Prochnow (Das Boot) as Michael Kogan, Til Schweiger (Inglorious Basterds) as Ryker, Danny Trejo (The Devil’s Rejects) as Collins, Clifton Collins Jr. (Triple 9) as Loco, Carlos Gomez (Desperado) as Hunt, Patrick Kilpatrick (Last Man Standing) as Pryce, and the film was directed by Antoine Fuqua (The Magnificent Seven). Before we get into the review of the film, let’s check out some stats:

replacement-killers-stats

replacement_killers_mira_sorvino_washWe decided to do this one as a tag team scenario just because he actually does team with her on she kind of gets in on the fun. As Far as Chow Yun-Fat’s stats are concerned, he has about 24 ko’s/kills, but no origin story other than the fact that he is an assassin. He really doesn’t have a love interest because he’s too busy trying to get home to save his family. Some friends of his do end up getting killed in the film which adds more fuel to the fire for him to finish the job. The big boss is defeated and of course watch the film to see how it happens.Most of her stats are the same except for the fact that I believe she only has three kills in the film total (it could be four). This film must have been very different for Yun-Fat because there is little to no martial arts in the film at all, it is a straight up fire fight with tons of guns. The 90’s was such a funny time because films were always trying to be hip especially with the imagery  like the clothing or the attitudes. I mean who dresses like the replacement killers in reality? This was a decent film, but there was just way too many times where certain actors were just trying too hard like Sorvino when she was being questioned by the cops. It was like ok, we get it you’re rebellious. The action however in the film is actually pretty cool and worth checking out and it’s the selling point of the film. I am going to give the film 3.3 fists out of five for a final grade.


the-ultimate-warriorFor this week’s Ass Whoopin Wednesdays film, I wanted to do something a little different and lately I have become a huge fan of the legendary Yul Brynner (The Magnificent Seven). So, I decided that I was going to cover one of his films in The Ultimate Warrior (no not the wrestler) for this week’s film. It’s 2012 A.D. and the world has gone post apocalyptic where gangs are now running the streets and you have to be careful when venturing out or you’ll die for the clothes on your back. One leader of a peaceful gang called the Baron (Max von Sydow) hires a fearless fighter by the name of Carson (Brynner). Carson agrees to help the Baron lead his people to a place where there is no more violence, but a familiar enemy in the area could prove to be monkey wrench in their plans. The film also stars Joanna Miles (The Glass Menagerie) as Melinda, William Smith (Any Which Way You Can) as Carrot, Richard Kelton (A Guide For The Married Woman) as Cal, Stephen McHattie (A History Of Violence) as Robert, Mel Novak (Game Of Death) as Lippert, Darrell Zwerling (Chinatown) as Silas, Lane Bradbury (Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore) as Barrie, and the film was directed by Robert Clouse (Enter The Dragon). Before we get into the review of the film, let’s check out some stats:

yul-copyfight-sceneLet’s check out some of the stats that Yul Brynner accumulated as Carson and of course we start with the kills/knockouts which was a total of 19. He has no origin story that we know of other than that he is from Detroit and he has walked everywhere. He has no love interest that we know about and no one close to him gets killed or hurt as well. The big boss is defeated and you have to see how it goes down because I certainly wasn’t expecting that. The film was actually a pretty decent film, but it’s a post apocalyptic action film so you know exactly what you are getting when you choose to watch it. The only thing I would have done is change the clothing choices for the film because it is based in 2012 and not 1975. Yul Brynner at first you think is a bad ass because he does what he wants and everyone wants him. Then you meet him and he’s actually a pretty chill dude until he has to act like a bad ass. The sets were pretty decent, they made it look post-apocalyptic enough that you definitely got the point. The fight choreography was decent as well, but there were moments where it could have been better. I am a huge fan of Yul Brynner like I said above which is why I chose to watch this film. I enjoyed the film for what it was so with that being said I am going to give the film 3.8 fists out of five for a final grade. Question for you to ponder, why is it every post-apocalyptic film is a Sci-Fi film?
