Dead Leaves Review

by Gunther Heinrich, 10 Sep 2010 in Anime Reviews

If you’re searching for a movie with deep characters or a thought out story: please, for the love of God, do not watch Dead Leaves and stay away from it as far as you can. Dead Leaves offers nothing of substance as characters or a deep plot. In fact, it’s the total opposite of said substance. It’s crazy, fast, brutal, vulgar, full of action and lacking almost any plot whatsoever (albeit having some twists here and there). If you’d give a (male) teenager some money and let his creative destruction roar, Dead Leaves might be the result.

The Running Man – The Movie Review

by Gunther Heinrich, 3 Sep 2010 in Reviews

You might find it funny coming from the guy who actually runs this blog here, but I think, assume and believe I’ve never reviewed a true 80s movie before. So when I stumbled across the good old Running Man starring now good old Arnold Schwarzenegger I thought “Hell yeah, let’s rock back to the 80s and review it for the sake of online content”.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Review

by Gunther Heinrich, 19 Aug 2010 in Reviews

God fucking dammit!!!!

Why couldn’t Michael “Hero Shot” Bay for once stop with his usual craptastic shit and go for quality, heh? It’s not that this installment of the Transformers franchise is godawful as some reviewers think. In the end it’s the usual action packed stuff you love or hate, so there’s nothing wrong with it… basically, somehow.

But I have a massive problem with movies that waste their big potentials for nothing. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is such a case. This movie has a story lurking in it with such epic quality that it’s not funny anymore.

Shoot ‘Em Up Review

by Gunther Heinrich, 8 Aug 2010 in Reviews

You see a face of a man in close-up, hard, rough, and roughly lit. Music stemming from a Spaghetti Western plays its dramatic tunes. The atmosphere is heavy. Then, the guy begins to eat a carrot. He’s sitting on a bench, nothing happens.

Seconds later a pregnant woman runs past him, pain shows in her face, she’s screaming…and a mobster is on her trails, screaming “You’re dead, bitch”. She runs into a building, the mobster’s right behind her, getting ready to shoot her. Our unnamed guy watches the whole scene in front of him. After both are out of sight he mumbles “Fuck it all” and goes after them.

Just before the mobster can kill the damsel in distress our unnamed guy closes in. He turns the bad guy around, puts his carrot into the open mouth of the mobster and smashes it right through the neck. His last advice? “Eat your vegetables”.

This, ladies and gentlemen, are the very first two minutes of Shoot ‘Em Up.

One minute later the death toll already reaches eight.
