Favorite movies and film reviews

Post by Midori Sugiura99 on Mon Jul 05, 2010 8:20 pm

I'm not huge on movies, but when I find one I like I always like to watch it over and over :D So share with us your favorite movies! I'll start! Let's see...



A lot of movies come to mind as my favorites, but this one has been one of mine since it came out in 1995. Seems like I've always had a thing for cross-dressers XD I was only 12 when this movie came out but I remember going to see it in the theatre. That was the summer I had really gotten into Grease (which I'll post more about later, since that's also one of my favorites) and was totally in love with Stockard Channing. Well, I didn't know it at the time, but looking back I definitely was in love with her XD And I thought I just wanted to be her >>

Anyhoos!! This movie is great, funny and Patrick Swayze, Wesley Snipes, and John Leguizamo make awesome women XD I remember it being such a big deal back then for these famous actors to be in drag. I love the story, the characters, and the way the movie portrays glamorous drag queens. Its one of those movies I think everyone needs to see. I'm not sure how many times I've seen it, but its one of those I won't ever get sick of.

So, share! What are some of your favorite movies?

XD Mitchie loves that movie. Actually, she loves anything with cross dressing guys. lol

It's obvious what my favorite movie is...



I don't expect the Harry Potter and Twilight generation to understand the greatness of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Even the other Indiana Jones films like Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Last Crusade are 5 star classics. Temple of Doom in particular is a movie that is so perfect to me. The action scenes are awesome and still look great today without the crutches of CGI. The performances by Harrison Ford, Kate Capshaw, and Jonathan Ke Quan are perfect, all playing their respective characters flawlessly. I'm also in love with the soundtrack!!! John Williams is slacking off lately, but in the 80s, his scores were on par, if not better than Yuki Kajiura's work and that's saying A LOT. If there's anything slightly better than the A+ Noir soundtracks, it's the Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom soundtrack.

The story in Temple of Doom isn't too complex, but the execution of the overall plot is classic film making at it's finest. Basically, adventurer-archeologist Indiana Jones finds himself dealing with the Triads (Chinese mafia. They were in Noir as well lol), and after an all-out brawl, he escapes with his 12 year old martial arts sidekick named Short Round and American female singer, Willie Scott. On their way back to the United States, they crash in a remote village in India, where they must retrieve a scared magical stone from an evil underground cult group. This stone could save not only the village, but the entire world as well.

I LOVE this movie and I must of seen it over 100,000,000,000,000,000,000+ times. The film is perfect to me. >_< No action film has surpassed it, and probably never will. It's sequel, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade comes very close though.

I'm the sorta girl that watches the same movies over million times. I do NOT watch the same type of movies though. I watch a variety, for the most part.

I absolutely looove Cruel Intentions. There is nothing hotter than a couple in a movie who are a couple in real life. It has a couple of twists and I feel was the most genuine out of the 3 movies that was made.

3 movies?? I only heared about a second one, which is bad??

Well, I can't ignore this topic anymore. Long post will hopefuly follow :3
(The order doesn't really matter)

Lost & Delirious

Why?? Because it's Lost and Delirious! XD
Did you know there is a book, too?? I didn't read it, but my first fuckingg love started it once and if I remember correctly Pauli was totally crazy in it o_o
Well, I think this is my first Lesbian movie I ever saw! The first time I watched some scenes (or maybe mostly the whole movie) with my brother XD I think I was 11 or so (no idea). I LOVED it. I am still LOVING it. Dammit! <3

Sin City

Why?? Because it's fuckingg SIN CITY!!!!!! (Okay, I should stop this).
I LOVE it that it's in black and white with only some colours. I LOVE so much quotes from this movie. I LOVE the stories. I LOVE the action with this bizarre humor. I just LOVE it, okay?? ö.ö

James Bond: Casino Royale

I am usually not a fan of James Bond (if you know James Bond you can think about some reasons yourself ;D), but I totally love this movie ;_;
I know that a bunch of the Bond fans don't like this movie, because Bond is too human here. That is one thing about the movie I like. An other is that he isn't this sexist yet (you know). Okay, well he is, but not through the whole movie. I don't have to mention Eva Green, do I?? Oh, and I do like Daniel Craig ;P

Loving Annabelle

WELLLLL......
Yeah, yeah, I know.

I like this cliché here.
Don't forget this fuckingg HOT sex scence *drool*
And the teacher let's me always thing about someone.

I do love Cruel Intentions, too.

XD Casino Royale was okay. The action sequences were good and that's about it for me. ^^; I was never a huge Bond fan. The last one I really enjoyed was Die Another Day and that was only because I got to see Halle Berry. <3_<3 So fuckingg hot.

While I was in Florida, me and Mitchie got to see a double feature at a drive-in theater. Predators and Last Exorcism.

We saw Last Exorcism first and it was just the Blair Witch Project all over again. A clueless documentary crew films a hick family who have a daughter possessed by a demon. I saw the ending coming a million miles away. Note to everyone: If the psycho character leaves hints on how the main characters are gonna die, you might as well leave the theater. Because it's guaranteed to happen, leaving you with a bullshitt ending.

Predators was better, but not by much. A group of the world's top killers are dropped off at an alien planet to survive against the Predators. This is the "official" sequel to the first Predator movie, ignoring Predator 2 and both Alien vs. Predator movies. Regardless, it's cliche from all corners. I prefer the Alien vs. Predator movies since they were entertaining. Predators with all it's homage to the original Predator and leaning towards the sci-fi genre pales in comparisons to 1986's ALIENS. There's really not much to say about it, except that Adrien Brody's nose got bigger since King Kong.

In case you don't check out Hollowed's Resident Evil thread, here's my review on Resident Evil Afterlife again:

Luu Sky Sapphire reviews Resident Evil Afterlife...3-D:



*sigh* You know, every so often nowadays there comes a period of time where movies just don't deliver. Predators, Expendables, Salt, they all spell mediocrity. Then comes a little film called Resident Evil Afterlife...3-D. The fourth entry in Paul Anderson's line up of Resident Evil films. When I left the theater, dumping my 3-D glasses in the recyclable blue box, there was only one thing left to say...

HOLY FUCKINGG SHITT, THAT WAS THE GREATEST MOVIE OF 2010 BY FAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not only was this the best movie of the year for me, it was the best movie in the RE movie series by far. Everything was explosive, the opening was amazing, there was plenty of story, and Milla Jovovich as well as Ali Larter, absolutely delivered. There's a pattern in each Resident Evil movie, each becomes more and more epic. The first began in a small underground claustrophobic setting and now the characters are practically traveling the world.

The movie picks up where Resident Evil Extinction left off, with Alice sending her smexy clones after Wesker at his Umbrella base in Tokyo. After owning random cannon fodder, Wesker kills the Alice clones and escapes. Unaware that the REAL Alice hitched a ride with him. After somehow neutralizing Alice, they crash the helicopter. Luckily, Alice survives. She continues onward to Alaska, where Claire and the others headed to (if you remember the events of the last film, Extinction). A place called "Arcadia" where survivors were said to be located. Once Alice got there, she didn't find anyone around except a savage Claire who was being controlled by a device (ala Resident Evil 5!). Removing the device caused Claire to have a short term memory loss, and she begins to remember things little by little as the movie progresses. With Claire, they hop on the plane and head towards Los Angeles, where a few survivors on a high rise prison bulilding cried out to be rescued. These survivors also heard the Arcadia transmissions, which weren't from Alaska as originally thought. They were on a giant ship outside the city. In which time, they run into Chris Redfield. Brother of Claire Redfield, though she doesn't remember it yet. As Alice, Claire and the survivors find ways to get to the ship, Type 2 Plagas (from the Resident Evil 5 game) dig a tunnel underneath the prison and makes their way inside, leading up to an awesome fight between Alice and Claire vs. the Executioner. AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME sequence.

As they make their way out, eventually making it to the ship, they discover the horrible truth. Not only are the survivors locked away, but also, Wesker is alive! No surprise there and boy did he kick major ass. Inspired by Resident Evil 5 once again by, Wesker is incredibly fast. In the end, they take him down or so they thought. Wesker apparently took everything our heroes could dish out and tries to make another hasty retreat, until he discovered Alice's going away present. :twisted:

The movie finishes kinda lame (sad, concerning the entire movie was bangerang!), with more Umbrella troops coming out of nowhere to take down Alice and her band of survivors. That is until...

MEGA UBER SPOILER ALERT!!!:

Spoiler:
JILL VALENTINE RETURNS! WITH HER RESIDENT EVIL 5 "NINA WILLIAMS" LOOK! SHE IS SHOWN WITH THE DEVICE ATTACHED TO HER CHEST, MEANING SHE WILL BE THE VILLAIN IN THE NEXT FILM! OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG! THIS MADE ME SO HAPPY!!!!!! MY FAVORITE RESIDENT EVIL CHARACTER IS OFFICIALLY BACK!!!!!!1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Final thoughts: I love this film. I LOVE this film. So many stinkers and mediocre films this year, only to be saved for Milla Jovovich and her zombie slayings once again. Give credit to Ali Larter too, she was awesome as Claire once again. Even Wentworth Miller impressed me as the rugged Chris Redfield, he was born to play the O.G. zombie killa. Milla Jovovich steals the show as always, her weapon and hand-to-hand combat scenes were flawless, you can tell how intense she gets filming these scenes, giving it everything she's got. I love her and Ali SOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!! It drives me insane! >_< The soundtrack was kick ass too, I need to get the album for this film. My only complaint about the film was the 3-D, which is just a nitpick on my part. The movie really didn't need the 3-D to be good, I found it more character driven and exciting than the previous three. Then there's that surprise ending if you wait around longer. That right there gave this movie a gold star.

I want to give this movie a BETTER THAN SEX rating so badly, so it can join Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (the only live action film I gave a BETTER THAN SEX rating). but my nitpicks hold it back from doing that. The 3-D wasn't necessary and a few CGI scenes bothered me. Other than that, it was an amazing thrill ride, Milla, Ali and cast did an incredible convincing job, the music kicked ass and the fight sequences were MillAlillicious. After a string of really hokey action films this year, Resident Evil Afterlife outshines them all. It was better written, better acted and involved two of the best female actresses of our time. *cheers* Here's to Resident Evil 5. See you really soon, girls.

Luu Sky Sapphire rates Resident Evil Extinction: I love you I love you I love you I love you 1/2 / I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you

FULL PRICE

See this film and own it when it comes out. Even if you have no idea about the Resident Evil games or the previous films, it's an action sex candy. <3 Perfect for all Milla Jovovich and Ali Larter worshipers like me, too. <3

Luu Sky Sapphire reviews:

Puppet Master: Axis of Evil


The Puppet Master movies were those low budget classics you discovered at rental stores. Only, they had a episodic story you could follow and it was awesome. Living puppets, sometimes good sometimes bad, protecting their puppet master from anyone who gets in the way. I watched the very first movie when I was little and it was so creepy. It felt so different than Child's Play, though in many ways similar. There is magic involved which helps bring the puppets to life, but there's also science. Plus the puppets don't speak like Chucky, but it works for them. Gives them that certain silent charm. Through the good (Puppet Master 1-5), the bad (anything after Curse of the Puppet Master) and the downright so-bad-it's-good (Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys aka Cory Feldman can't act!) I've stuck to this series like glue. Marionettes kick ass, especially when they kill things.

This new film takes place after Puppet Master III: Toulon's Revenge. The Nazis are still after Toulon and his puppets in hopes of discovering the secret that makes them live. A flashback of the first movie occurs where Toulon hides the puppets and kill himself so the Nazis don't discover anything. A young wounded soldier who lives in the hotel goes upstairs to see Toulon, only to be knocked down and eventually find Toulon's dead body. He magically finds the trunk that Toulon stored away and takes the puppets to Chinatown in L.A. There the two Nazis who hunted down Toulon have hatched up a new plan to blow up an American warehouse that supplies soldiers during the war. They're all led by a Japanese woman (with terrible Christopher Walker English), who wants to see the Americans lose this war. The boy soldier discovers their plans and uses the puppets against them, but it return, the Nazis take out his family. Using the green serum, the boy combines it with blood of his dead brother (who always like to sneak up on people...) and injected it into Toulon's new puppet, "Ninja". Ninja is awesome and it's a good thing the brother is now trapped in it's body and can't speak, because he was fuckking annoying. The boy tracks down the Japanese woman, his Japanese bodyguards and the Nazis and sics the puppets after them. Cool kills, mostly by Ninja. I was hoping Blade would kill a few, but whatever. Blade is my favorite puppet. After the guy saves his girlfriend, the Japanese woman retreats with a bag of puppets. The only ones she didn't steal were Blade, Ninja and Pinhead. Guess what? It ends there! Leaving open for a sequel.

Now I know this is a low budget film, but the acting was horrendous. The main guy's girlfriend sounds like a total valley girl and they did NOT sound like that in 1939. The puppets didn't get much screen time in the long run, rather the movie was plagued by long dialogue scenes that I didn't care for. I wanted to see more puppets killing shit! The body count is somewhat high for a Puppet Master film, about 6 kills. The best belonged to Leech Woman, killing the Japanese dude by dropping a leech on his sushi plate. ^_^ He totally ate it. Ninja, again, is a welcome addition to the Puppet Master Universe (Universe is the appropriate word since all the puppet master movies are connected. There are no alternate versions.) I've always wanted an Asian puppet on the team and he kicked major ass. He even pulled a Kenny from South Park with the ninja star-to-the-eye death! XDDDD I couldn't stop laughing.

Bottom line, it's a decent entry for Puppet Master fans, but it could of been MUCH better. This film is only for fans, so if you never seen a Puppet Master film, chances are you won't know what's going on or give two shits. Major plus for Ninja, the little guy carried the film as best he could.

Luu Sky Sapphire gives Puppet Master: Axis of Evil:

:star: :star: / :star: :star: :star: :star: :star:

High Rental.

Luu Sky Sapphire reviews Saw 3-D or Saw VII



WARNING! LOTS OF SPOILERS!

At last. At fuckking last this series is finally over. The Saw movies were one heck of a roller coaster ride over the years ever since the first Saw back in 2004. Saw started out as a low budget horror that didn't expect to become as big as it did. Jigsaw aka John Kramer became one of horror's most famous icons over night. Testing random people, seeing if they have what it takes to survive. To truly understand the value of human life.

Saw 3-D begins with a flashback of the first movie, where Doctor Gordon cut his foot off and makes his escape. We actually get to see what happened to him, but I'll get to that later. Keep in mind, the present takes place immediately after Saw VI, where Jill Tuck (Jigsaw's wife) uses the reverse bear trap on the evil Detective Hoffman. Since Hoffman has the devil's luck, he escapes the trap leaving a giant wound on his mouth. Jill sees this and immediately runs for her life, knowing the son of a bitch wants revenge. This annoyed me, why is Jill running like a helpless victim? What happened to the cold and cunning woman from the previous films? She could easily kill a wounded Hoffman, but instead rushes to the police and requests full immunity. The cops look at her funny until she gives away the name of the new Jigsaw. Hoffman. The cops immediately take her word seriously now and why wouldn't they? I guess this is what Agent Perez meant in Saw VI when she said "everyone knows", after Hoffman asked who else knows his secret. Meanwhile Bobby Dagen, a self-help guru who claimed he survived Jigsaw's tests, gather together all the survivors from the previous movies. He gets kidnapped by Hoffman later on to start a new game, and the reason he was chosen was because he lied about being a Jigsaw survivor. To prove he's got what it takes, Bobby is put into a series of tests (similar to Saw IV and Saw VI) where he has to rescue his friends and his wife within 60 minutes. One failure after another, Bobby cannot save any of his friends. He does reach his wife Joyce in time, but he fails the final obstacle to save her. Ironically, it's the trap he claimed to have survived. Sadly Joyce burns to death with Bobby sobbing in defeat. Meanwhile, Hoffman finally tracks down Jill (after killing everyone in the precinct...) and lays her to rest with a reverse bear trap. This time, we actually get to see it work successfully. Bastard Hoffman, I hate that piece of shit. Thinking he got away with everything, three pig masked people show up and take him down. One of the attackers reveal themselves to be...DOCTOR GORDON! Jiminy crickets!! And here's why. John (the original Jigsaw) had a tape he wanted Jill to deliver to Gordon. The tape has John telling Gordon that if anything happen to Jill, that he should act on his behalf. Knowing Hoffman killed Jill, Gordon takes Hoffman to the one place that will serve as a fate worse than an instantaneous death. He takes him and chains him up in the dirty bathroom from the first Saw film. Hoffman tries to free himself, but it is no use. Gordon even takes away his only chance at escaping....the very saw that Gordon used to cut his foot off. Hoffman is pissed, knowing he will be left to rot and starve to death in the hideous bathroom. serves you right asshole, GAME OVER.

This is the most AWESOME Saw film since the first movie. Sure it has horrible acting and very lame traps here and there, but it's so epic to finally have all the plotholes filled and have the story come full circle. Bobby's trials felt rushed and I felt he should of won this game. I mean come on, the perfect way to end this series is to have the captive-of-the-day WIN for once! I still say it's unfortunate that Jill Tuck had to die TWICE! She was killed in a dream sequence too! (she looked sexy in the dream sequence btw. Purple lingerie...yummy. I'm a huge Betsy Russell fan, she's gorgeous for her age.) The best part of the film was obviously the return of Doctor Gordon. A character that disappeared after the first movie. It left fans speculating what happened to him over the years and now we know. We'll never know who Gordon's pig masked accomplices are but I don't care. Hoffman is a murderer and got what he deserved!

Overall, it's torture porn and definitely the goriest of all the Saw films. The 3-D was L-A-M-E. I'm getting sick and tired of a gimmick that doesn't work for any film. *sigh* Whatever, long live Jill and Gordon! Burn in Hell, Hoffman. Saw 3-D is the perfect final chapter and now we can move on with our lives. Maybe Scream 4 will be better?

Rating: :star: :star: :star: / :star: :star: :star: :star: :star:

High Matinee

See it in theaters if you're a horror/gore buff. If you're a hardcore Saw fan, you should definitely see it.

Luu Sky Sapphire reviews Tangled aka Rapunzel

Last year's Princess and the Frog revived Disney Animated films for me, taking it back to the old school style of hand drawn animation. Unfortunately it seems that it was a one time deal as clearly seen in 2010's Tangled. The 50th animated feature in Disney's classic line up. I went into this film with high expectations. Okay, maybe not THAT high. Beauty and the Beast, Hunchback of Notre Dame, and especially Pinocchio are tough acts to top. However, Tangled sold me all the way. It's a magical film starring the cutest Disney female in many years.

Meet Rapunzel, a spunky and energetic girl with a dream to see what lies beyond the tower she's confined to. Also, see why these floating lights fill the sky every year on her birthday. It all started with villainess Mother Gothel discovering a magical healing flower created by a single ray of sun. Gothel has been using this flower to preserve her youth for many years until one day, the Queen of the kingdom falls ill. This leaves the entire kingdom searching for the magical flower and because of Gothel's screw up, the flower is recovered. The Queen is then healed from her illness and gives birth to her daughter, Rapunzel. The power of the flower becomes part of Rapunzel, specifically her long hair. When Gothel returns she discovers if cut, the hair loses it's power. She has no choice but to kidnap the princess and raise her in a secret tower. A secret plan to keep her immortality forever has the villainess, Mother Gothel, keeps Rapunzel locked up for all eternity.

Close to her 18th birthday, Rapunzel finally works up the courage to ask Mother Gothel if she can go see where the floating lights are located. Gothel insists that the world is cruel and dark for Rapunzel to venture out into. Denying her for the 18th time in a row, Rapunzel soon finds the spark she needed to accomplish her dream. Meet "Flynn Rider" (you'll find out why I quoted his name when you watch the film. ^_~ ), a skilled thief who along with two cronies steal the crown of the missing princess. With the loyal guard on his tail, he accidentally finds the secret tower and meets Rapunzel. From there, hilarity and sweetness ensues.

The humor in Tangled is just as adorable as Rapunzel. Let's talk about Rapunzel herself, she's such a cutie. *blush* I have this thing for blonds and
Spoiler:
brunettes *wink wink*
so she's VERY appealing to me. Thanks to Rapunzel, flying pans are going to be extremely popular. XD She's a girl with dreams, intelligence and a gorgeous voice. "Flynn" is also a great character, he starts out like the typical suave male character with his one-liners and witty charm. He starts to develop the more he spends time with a dreamer like Rapunzel, it's very touching. Mother Gothel is your typical villainess, but I did enjoy her songs a lot. "Mother Knows Best" has been stuck in my head all day. XD Still, she's not a good follow up to the Shadow Man from Princess and the Frog imo. Neither were the critters, Maximus and Pascal. I liked them, especially Maximus (the most bad ass horse in Disney history!) but Louis and Ray from Frog had much better charisma. I know I've been giving last year's epic a lot of credit, forgive me. XD The general idea was probably to keep the critters more "simple" this time around. My favorite character is easily Rapunzel. She's so cute, a major spaz and wields a FLYING PAN! I can't get over how awesome she is. Mandy Moore voiced and sung as Rapunzel and did it with such excellence. Zachary Levi ( "Flynn" ) and Donna Murphy (Mother Gothel) were amazing too.

I only have two nitpicks for Tangled. One being the obvious, the animation. I'm still not big on the CG animation, never loved it as much as others have. I firmly believe this movie would of looked amazing in hand-drawn animation. When Rapunzel healed Flynn's injured hand (revealing the magic healing abilities), that would of been such a beautiful scene in 2D animation. This a small nitpick mind you, I do think the movie is visually beautiful. My second nitpick is the movie felt kinda short. Soon after Rapunzel is free from the tower, they find the kingdom. I was hoping for more adventure after the water chase scene and more FlynnxRapunzel moments. Especially the latter, there was amazing chemistry between those two, why not drag it out longer?!

Overall, I loved Tangled. It's a welcome addition to the Disney animated movie legacy. The kids will love it and so will adults I think. It's pure magic throughout the whole film and it was about time Disney brought this Grimm Fairy tale to life.

Saw 3-D was pretty much dull and the same ol' stuff. It's the build up to Hoffman's demise and Gordon's return that people wanted to see. The traps too I guess, I thought they were lame.

Spoiler:
There could be another movie with Gordon. He's a more fair and honest Jigsaw than the murderous Hoffman. But I think we can assume that he doesn't continue Jigsaw's legacy, as John only left him with one final task. Then again, with the mysterious "pig masks" who helped Gordon beat up Hoffman, more questions are left unanswered. >_<

o.o Jill is a goddess, she-san. Plus she tastes like a homemade sandwich. <3

Luu Sky Sapphire reviews: Black Swan
SPOILERS! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!



Madness. Artistic MADNESS.

That is the best way I can describe this psychological drama. Black Swan is a close up look at perfectionism, jealousy, discipline and just plain mental illness.

The acting and dancing performance by Natalie Portman is stellar beyond anything I could ever imagine. She plays Nina Sayers...

o.o;

...a dancer who strives to become the lead in the production of Swan Lake. Technically, she is perfect for the role of the White Swan. Yet the suave director believes she comes up a little short when trying to capture the dark seducing Black Swan. After pulling a little biting stunt, which impresses the director, she is then cast as the main lead. The director's former star, Beth MacIntyre (played by petite actress, Winona Ryder) cannot stand the sight of Nina, knowing she has taken her place. Sucks to be a has-been, huh? Not that it bothers Nina any, aside from the fact that Beth is hurting herself. Nina continues to focus on her goal on becoming the perfect Swan Queen. As the movie moves along, she starts to develop strange hallucinations. It all started with bleeding then horror-like elements involving herself and Lily. Ah yes, Lily (played by Mila Kunis). Nina's smexy understudy who makes her feel uneasy and paranoid, thinking she was plotting to take the lead role away from her. Home life wasn't much better either, Nina's mother was caring but too obsessed with her child. To escape the grasp of her overprotective mother,
Nina accompanies Lily to a club/bar to loosen herself up.

The lesbian scene...no comment.

The next day, Nina shows up at rehearsals and asks Lily why didn't she wake her after their...dinner. Lily replies stating that she wasn't with her the other night and laughs at Nina for having "Lezzy" wet dreams. Priceless. Something was horribly wrong, it was clearly obvious that Nina wasn't stable in the ol' noggin'. The scene back at her home, before the opening of Swan Lake, was bizarre. Without spoiling too much, this is where the MADNESS starts to kick in. After it ended, Nina's mother attempts to keep Nina on lock down until she got better. Knowing she had to go to the show and not allow Lily to take her place, Nina escapes once again. She arrives just in time for the show, completing the first act with disastrous results. Botch! To prepare for the next act, Nina returns to her dressing room and finds Lily dressed in the Black Swan costume. They scuffle for a while, with Lily getting shoved into a mirror. Nina stabs her with a piece of broken glass, resulting in Lily's death. She drags the body into another room and switches costumes. Back on stage as the Black Swan, we get a very cool scene with Nina performing her ass off. Dazzling the audience with her dark side, the one the director always talked to her about. Very powerful scene with her black wings spreading out.

In the final scene, Nina returns back to the dressing room only to make a startling discovery! Not only was Lily's blood and body gone, she arrived at her door! What happened? Well...as the final Act took place, Nina danced to the top of the cliff prop, where she would descend to her death like in the story. She completed the show with grace and poise, there was a standing ovation that saw the hard work and dedication she put into this performance. Her peers came over to congratulate her, but were shocked to see a horrible wound in her chest. Nina stabbed herself all along, making it clear that perfection meant a lot more to her than we thought.

Director Darren Aronofsky made a decent winner with The Wrestler a while back, so I was optimistic about Black Swan. From what I could tell, this film used the Swan Lake story as background. You could compare the elements side by side, but I felt this film stood on it's own. The ballet was breathtaking, the acting was first rate and the horror elements mixed in actually worked! Natalie Portman has really come a long way, she is first rate as the determined yet strange Nina Sayers. She was convincing from every angle. Whenever Natalie plays a character who is disturbed or feels threatened, you believe it. Her expressions are so real, we're not seeing strong acting like this anymore.

I wish I can give this movie a BETTER THAN SEX rating. Yes folks, it came THAT close to becoming the 3rd film to be given a perfect rating by me. Black Swan's only flaw was that it was predictable. When the hallucinations came into play, us as an audience were being teased
about what was real and what was not. The supernatural stuff obviously wasn't real, but the severe actions caused by Nina were. I guessed the ending, but was hoping it wouldn't come true. Shame on myself, considering how much this role meant to Nina. It was clear when she said...

"I was perfect"

To capture the authenticity of this film's version of Swan Lake, Nina didn't just want to act it, she wanted to LIVE it.

Overall, Black Swan is a VERY high Full Price. It's a beautiful film that explores the sad world inside the mind of a girl who's obsessed with perfection. Usually I pity characters like these in other films, but she looked so happy when she finally achieved her goal. This sad little person made me cry.

Luu Sky Sapphire rates Black Swan

FULL PRICE

Own it when it arrives on home video. Great for ballet, theater, Natalie Portman, psychological drama, even horror fans.
