A Clockwork Orange

Very bizarre film. Stanley Kubrick is great. Although, I wish he would've made the film a little longer, put more Russian into the language, and told us what happened to Pete (even though it says that in the novel). But, hey, maybe it would've ruined the movie, I don't know.

It is very hard to write a review on this one because there's no way to describe the plot. There certainly is a plot though. Just make sure to open your mind, and pay close attention

Cannibal Holocaust

If you decided to read my review, you are probably already interested enough to know what this film is about.

The plot is truly original. Actually, everything about this movie is great. But, one thing completely stands out in the movie…The score. The score was composed by Riz Ortolani. Everything about the soundtrack is beautiful. It goes from being very haunting, to emotional and sad, or simply just beautiful. Fits in with the movie all the way. The Main Theme is one of the best songs ever (probably would've been a hit if Cannibal Holocaust wasn't so feared).

I saw this movie about two months ago and decided to write a review about it now because I was speechless back when I just viewed it; and I still don't have much to say. Simply, it's a great movie. If you have the chance to get your paws on this movie, grab it. Watch With Caution: This Film Is Very Violent, But Is Something Anybody Will Be Able To Sit Through.

One question I have is, what happened to all the actors. They only played in a couple of films besides this. They were terrific. Also, does anybody have guitar tabs the "Cannibal Holocaust (Main Theme)"? Once again, I love that song. If you can answer one of my two questions, please e-mail me. Thank you.

This movie is unnecessarily long. No, it's not a three hour film, but it didn't have to be as long as it was. It just kept going on and on. At least `Nosferatu (1922)' made it's point and was done. This film had every little detail, and kept going on.

Gary Oldman was a terrible Dracula. They could've at least made him look like Count Orlock rather than a stylish character. Or, if they wanted a stylistic character, than they could've casted a better actor, that wasn't so ugly. Maybe more of a nice face. It just seemed too weird that a guy as ugly as Gary Oldman, could get with a hot woman like Winona Ryder. But it wasn't just his looks, he was too old also. If you want to see a good Dracula movie, see Nosferatu.

On the upside, the casting and acting was great; besides Gary Oldman. It really respected it's story, and made it one of a kind. Although I had a lot of disappointments, I still think this film deserves a 7/10. I am being very harsh on this movie, since it's a remake, but I suggest you go out and rent it and judge it for yourself. Trust me, it is certainly not a waste of money. This is a movie that'll give one another various opinions. Watch it.
