Suck * Rob Stefaniuk (2009)

Wow, this film is corny! It is a vampire film and the box lists Alice Cooper, Moby, Iggy Pop and Henry Rollings, so I expected a cool rockfilm with vampires. In fact, the film is about a band called “Winners” (how dark). They never seem to go and reach any kind of peak, but they play in shadowy clubs with scary audiences. Yet, they sound like some lousy highschool popband, I wonder what such a band does in rockclubs. The lady of the band (Jennifer) goes out with the most creepy character from the audience and I do not have to explain what happens to her. As Jennifer lights up on stage, the band’s fame rises. All good and fair. Like I said, with Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Henry Rollings (great part) and Moby (another great part) on the list, I hoped for some descent music. As a vampire film, “Suck” is miles from being corny enough, it is too slick, too clean, too big-audience. There are a few nice jokes and a handfull of amusing scenes, but overall, the film… sucks (what an easy joke).

Again somewhere

It does not happen to me often that I pick a film that I forgot I saw. “Somewhere” did not make a whole lot of impression, apparently it neither did the first time I saw it. A film without a story. We just see a few days of the life of a famous actor screwing [...]

Wicker weekend

Last weekend I saw both Wicker Man films, the 1973 original and the 2006 remake and I just see that I ‘blogged’ about these films before.

Nicholas Winding weekend

Last weekend I have rewatched both “Drive” (2011) and “Only God Forgives” (2013). The films are very similar, yet very different. Both have Ryan Gosling as poker-faced main character. In both films Goslings character is involved in illegal activities, but does not really seem to want to. Of course, both films are slow and minimalistic. [...]

No blog

A “blog” with one entry every two years, that is quite cool, is it not?

It has been a couple of years since I added “blogs” to the different sections so I could share information other than reviews. Looking back, I am not entirely sure what kind of information I had in mind. I [...]

Fantasy bombast

During two airplaneflights I have killed some time watching to fantasy spectacles. First the lauded “Avatar”, second the first “Hobbit”. I did not expect “Avatar” to be some sort of “Matrix”, but the famous blue characters inhabit some sort of ‘inbetweenworld’ that men can only come using some sort of machine. The film is an [...]
