Video reviews for you

Ok since there were actual messages from more than ttivy wrecking the blogs the admins care zero about, here are a few brief reviews of some videos I had the joy of watching.

Contraband

Remember that movie Less than Zero, where everything goes from ok to bad to worse?  The first hour and a half of this one had me recalling the happiness Less than Zero conjured up.  Down and down and down we go, til Marky Mark goes Wham Bang Pow and wins the day.  Formulatic and depressing.  D+

If memory serves this was billed as a terror thrill ride.  Let me give you a better feel for the plot and palpability of this gem.  Otis Redding's classic works really well, Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' come Watching the ships roll in
And then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah.  The parts you're supposed to jump out of your seat at is as terrifying as a deckhand opening a door and appearing on deck.  The ending isn't even as much 'M Night twist' as 'Wow the boat docked and it's over thank god'.  Dead fish.  F

Tucker and Dale vs Evil

It's been a while since horror found a funny bone, since Idle Hands actually.  Since the whole Scary Movie franchise is as amusing as the Trix rabbit, it's a gaping hole in need of help, and this flick fits the bill, I'm only sorry I hadn't found this sooner.  Very original take on the kids in the woods horror bit, Tucker and Dale had numerous actually funny parts, and it gets a thumbs up from this turtle.  B+ at least.

Maybe I need to go to the video store more often, cause god knows the vast majority of feelms coming out arent worth suffering through the commercials for.
