Zack and Miri Make a Porno, a review by Tom




Title: Zack and Miri Make a Porno
Year: 2008
Director: Kevin Smith
Rating: 18
Length: 97 Min.
Video: Widescreen 1.78
Audio: English: DTS HD Master Audio
Subtitles: English

Stars:
Elizabeth Banks
Seth Rogen
Craig Robinson
Gerry Bednob
Edward Janda

Plot:
Get ready for the wild comedy that goes where no movie has dared go before! Seth Rogen (Pineapple Express) and Elizabeth Banks (Role Models) star as two cash-strapped roommates who try to get out of debt by making an adult film. Once the cameras start rolling, things quickly get complicated...and hilarious! Writer/Director Kevin Smith is at his funniest, backed by a motley cast, including Craig Robinson ("The Office"), Jason Mewes (Clerks films), Justin Long (Live Free or Die Hard) and Brandon Routh (Superman Returns). Critics promise, "if you like The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up, and Superbad you'll love Zack and Miri" (Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV).

Extras:
Deleted Scenes
Featurettes
Money Shots
Outtakes

My Thoughts:
After first viewing I am a little disappointed with this movie. When I first heard about the plot, I thought it sounds average and not particularly new, but how Kevin Smith talked about it, maybe he really did something great here.
But the movie turned out is I imagined. Though I like Seth Rogen, his character is like every other character he plays. So nothing surprising here.
But this movie left me feeling, like it could grow on me, when I watch it again some time.
Happy to see, that Jason Mewes stayed clean. It is very obvious when looking at him and hearing him talk in this movie.

All Night Long, a review by Jimmy




Title : All Night Long (1992)

Overview
Three high-school students are witnesses to a violent murder. Joined together by this unforgettable experience in a way they cannot understand, their link to the world of violence strengthens when a group of rapists attack one of their female friends. Embracing the shocking underworld of savagery, the three teenagers make a pact to find the rapists and exact revenge for their friend.

My Impression
It's been a while since I've watch this one (at least more than 2 years) and I've obviously forgot that this isn't a typical horror movie. It's more your typical familly friendly japanese movie ;)

Of course this isn't true (at least I hope) since the movie is a "what if?" type of movie, in this case what would you do if your new girlfriend would be raped and murdered by a gang of teenage bad guy? Being a Japanese movie if your answer was "call the police" you are wrong... The real answer : go there with 2 new friends and beat the crap out of them and more. That can be sound like a piece of garbage, but a long time is pass in the film to show the love story between the 2 young protagonists (almost one hour) and this revenge doesn't sound gratuitious. Yes it's bloody and violent, but this isn't without reasons like in the stupid Hostel. You will see that no one can used violence and not be affected by it (it doesn't end well for neither the rape gang and the revenge gang). Some of the acting look over the top, but I see that more as a way to reflect what happen when your brain switch is at the off position.

2 others films were made in that serie, but I haven't see them yet...

I recommand this film, but it isn't a movie for everybody

Plot:
You haven't seen all the Superman films until you've seen this! Superman II starring Christopher Reeve returns with a never-before-seen beginning and resolution. Director Richard Donner began shooting his vision of Superman II while concurrently filming Superman The Movie. For the first time, his unique vision is here. Jor-El (Marlon Brando in recently found footage) appears in key new scenes that amplify Superman lore and deepen the relationship between father and son. Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) plots more schemes to unmask Clark Kent as Superman. With so many changes, large and small, this version is an eye-opening alternate experience.

Saturn (1981)  Best Music (Ken Thorne)

Extras:
  • Commentary
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Featurettes
  • Introduction by Richard Donner
  • Scene Access
  • Superman Cartoons


My Thoughts:
This cut improves on an already great movie. Especially the scenes with Marlon Brando, which were excised from the theatrical cut, bring much more sense to the movie. They explain better why Superman had to give up his powers to be with Lois, and how he got his powers back. Also all the slapstick is gone now.
The first time I saw it, I was surprised how many scenes Marlon Brando had shot for this movie. I also am surprised how many Lex Luthor moments had been cut from the Lester version (all scenes with Gene Hackman were shot under Donner, therefore no new scenes were available for Lester).
