Get your fat sorry ass from the sofa and go to the nearest video store (or if you have internet then I guess you know what to do) and get yourself: Guillermo del Toro's "El Espinazo del diablo" and Don Coscarelli's "Bubba Ho-tep"
Both these movies are a must see!!!!
Comparing to "El laberinto del fauno", "El Espinazo del diablo" is as depressing. But it has some sort of closure which Laberinto doesn't.
Marisa Paredes´ appearance is as always grandiose!
The kids - all of them - are so good it is disgusting!
Eduardo Noriega apart from a good actor is also so . . . he is . . . so . . . ehhm!!!
Federico Luppi (who is also the King, in "El Laberinto del fauno", is very touching. The sort of bloke you want to have for grandpa.
Pretty movie! And of course sad! Almodovar produced this one and you can defiantly see, smell and taste his touch!
The photography is filthily impressive. The effects really nice made without exaggerations and over-computerised bullshit. As for realism, well, there is an ankle-breaking scene that has scared me for life!
MUST SEE MUST SEE MUST SEE!
"Bubba Ho-tep" is the smartest, funniest, most moving, most unique, most heartbreaking Horror..Comedy I've ever seen.
The camera work is ingenious, almost poetic! The photography is very Coen Brothers "Barton Fink" like. The story is very smart and unique. Though painfully ridiculous at times, it is an extremely interesting and smart idea. The feelings may move from side to side. At some point I got watery eyes (that's the closest I get to crying in movies) and at times I laughed so hard till I thought I dropped a kidney. In this movie you see Bruce Campbell, in his best part EVER, finally acting! Bravo to Don Coscarelli for his first good movie! I can't wait for "Bubba Nosferatu and the Curse of the She-Vampires" coming in 2008
That's all for now.
May the force be with you . . . .
