    SAW II

    Saw it yesterday in Norway, was a pretty decent film, a horror thriller, lots of suspense and twists and Some gross scenes thrown in.
    I never saw the first "SAW", so i didn't know what to expect! But overall, i would highly recommend it for those who want some sick cruelty with lashings of twists.. :

    The Terminator

    Still a fantastic movie, and thank goodness that the SFX guys convinced Cameron not to do all scenes with the endoskeleton terminator in stop motion. The puppetry scenes are what really make the ending wonderful in their realism. Aslo, thanks to the DVD's extra material, one finds out that the role of the Terminator was initially meant to go to Lance Henriksen, while Arnold was to play Kyle Reese, the hero. Henriksen as the terminator would make for a very interesting movie, as the original idea was that a terminator could blend into any crowd, something Arnold can not. However, casting Arnold as Reese would have been a disaster IMHO.

    The first SAW was much better, me thinks.

    Not because of anything else, but because it had the element of surprise.

    Thus, if you see SAW II without having seen the first one, then the element of surprise is still there. Otherwise it is a mere reenactment of the first

    I was watching series of TV-novels "Poor Nastya" recently. Love historical movies, especially about Empire times (and even more especially when Korikova is starring in it).

    Raid

    Do you get the insecticide that kills "in the home and garden" advertising in other countries?

    Anyway, Raid is the invincible, unstoppable contract killer with a heart of gold (eyes: ), created originally by Finnish detective novelist Harri Nykänen.

    The television miniseries based on Nykänen's writings was great, but the full-lenght sequel to the miniseries seemed to try for a Hollowood type action movie, which (obviously) turned out to be a failure.

    The last film I saw was "Walking Tall", based on the exploits of a real Tennessee sheriff who used a big stick for backup. In the movie, he whittles himself a big club to settle a score with a crooked casino that ripped him off and tried to kill him. The star is Joe Don Baker, a Brunn. The real sheriff was also a big Brunn bloke. While enjoying the movie, I also found the idea of an Upper Paleolithic survivor using a big club very ironic.

    Last night, I watched Hymypoika/Young Gods. To tell you the truth, I was a little disappointed by it. I thought the film's subject matter had great potential, but it unfortunately drifted into an all too predictable pattern. However, watching the film was not a total waste of an evening, but it left me with a gnawing sense of sadness and emptiness that didn't dissipate too quickly.

    Dr Satan's Robot

    This film is f*****g awesome. The hero, Copperhead, is a veritable Conan. Nothing stops him. Thought and Action are one. You get a whiff of an era in which idealism, and the concept of values greater than the individual and the self, are still tangible to the average person on the street.

    Aside from which, it is a film about a megalomaniac supra-villain (think Hannibal Lecter crossed with Professor Moriarty named Dr.Satan who is trying to take over the World with a Death Robot.

    For it to have not been awesome would violate the laws of physics.

    If it had Ninjas in it, my head would probably have exploded.


    Doctor Satan's Robot
    a k a Mysterious Dr. Satan
    1940-USA-



    Type: Features
    Distributor: Republic

    Rating: NR
    Running Time: 100 Minutes

    Starring: Ella Neal, C. Montague Shaw, Robert Wilcox
    Directed by: Jon English, William Witney
    PLOT DESCRIPTION
    Eduardo Cianelli (his first name changed to "Edward" on this occasion) is the not-so-mysterious title character in the 15-chapter Republic serial The Mysterious Dr. Satan. A criminal genius, Dr. Satan has developed a "killer robot" to do his bidding. In order to perfect his invention, he must get his hands on a secret remote-control device invented by kindly Professor Thomas Scott (C. Montague Shaw). His efforts along this line-including the period abduction of Scott's pretty daughter Lois (Ella Neal)-are constantly stymied by the Copperhead, a masked do-gooder who in reality is handsome hero Bob Wayne (Robert Wilcox). Jam-packed with fast action and dizzying plot twists, The Mysterious Dr. Satan was one of the best and most often-revived Republic serials of the early 1940s. A feature-length abridgement, Dr. Satan's Robot, was prepared for televison in 1966. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

    I saw 'The Island' (not just because it has Sean Bean in it!).

    Must admit it left me a bit confused... :
