Run Silent, Run Deep

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
An interesting war\submarine movie, with the structure somewhat more akin to a detective, than a drama. There is not much to talk about, outside of just restating the plot, but the actual movie is well made and still works despite it’s age.

Army of One

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
A one bizarro movie based on actual events. The protagonist is kind of obnoxious and jokes are kind of low effort, but the character found its actor. Nicolas Cage pulls the role off perfectly and all dark comedy bits and kool aid Jesús are working too.

The Hunter’s Prayer

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
A generic post-action movie. But not in the sense of cinematography but in it’s subject matter. It’s tolerable but unremarkable and unmemorable.

Killing Gunther

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
This Is Spın̈al Glockumentary

A fake-documentary dark comedy, which improves the formula by using this subject matter, but is also dragged down by the tropes of this tiny genre and inherent weak cinematography.

The real documentaries are usually much more engaging and dynamic in their editing than this.

Security (2017)

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
A pretty trivial premises-defense action movie. But since it has mostly okay cinematography, a pinch of grimdark and it is not about crying MARINES! (despite the storyline kinda being about that), it makes it somewhat outstanding in the >>current year.

@темы: Кино, Security (2017)



Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.

A usual story about two outsiders duking it out in the contemporary USA. The main character is cool, some things work nice and overall it’s enjoyable but unremarkable.

Trancers II

A typical “but he had a brother” sequel, slightly complicated with quasi-ressurection of protagonist’s dead wife of his backstory.

McNulty grannie returns with the same actress, with whole story being aged accordingly.

Pay attention to the Rabbit, something tells me he’s gonna stick around.

Trancers III
Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past From the Future

This instalment has the Shark and shows Deth’s daughter\granny, but overall is unremarkable and forgettable. It’s still enjoyable, though.

Trancers 4: Jack of Swords

…perpendicular method of sсript-writing…

Usually series are going into space in later installments, but it’s already kind of from there, so, instead, they went to the past to live in dirty castle that suck ass.

It’s fine, but the ending is a little inconclusive.

Trancers 5: Sudden Deth

And this is why the fourth movie works, but feels a little off. It was kind of a two-parter.

Jack goes back to the future world and gets himself yet another girl.

Trancers 6

This installment is mixing up the formula by putting Jack (in the absence of Tim Thomerson) into the body of his own grannie\daughter. The usual dumb jokes of such setup (hello, Quantum Leap) come up only once, the rest of the film is a full-fledged Trancers.

The lead actress is kind of great and really pulls off a role of Tim Thomerson playing Jack Deth. On top of that, it creates a “badass” female protagonist, who doesn’t act “bitchy” or “slutty” on top of that, which is kind of a rarity (anyone beside Ripley from the Alien?)

The film is mostly good, but the prophecy parts are cinematographically unfitting and fake Thomerson parts are jarring.

Trancers: City of Lost Angels

A short movie which takes place between first and second Trancers and is cut out from Pulse Pounders anthology film.

Robosapien: Rebooted

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
An utmost generic “surprisingly speaking sidekick” type of the movie for indiscriminating kids, in the world of which you can rob all your neighbours and get away with it.

Our little Secret (2004)

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
A short movie, which is aping Nolan’s Following or something and is absolutely random and makes no sense. What it even tries to tell?

Justice League (2017)

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.

It’s a one fine grimdark CGI cartoon. It starts somewhat weak, with a scene cut so bad that it’s impossible to understand what is happening and why it is even mentioned later in the movie. But, despite it being a Zack Snyder film (or maybe even due to it being a Zack Snyder film) the rest of the movie has okay cinematography which is entirely comprehensible and unobtrusive. But the sound design is kind of strange — when the movie moves into Poland, it tries to play some of the local music motives. And usually such things are made only for a joke.

The characters are enjoyable, new Flash is just great, the old man Batman being honest is an interesting take, laughstock Aquamen being a cocky muscle machine was needed too. Overall, it’s nowhere worse than any Marvel movie, and even better than some.

The problem is, i have to re-watch director’s cuts of all of the DC movies. And not only for additional footage, but also for the original voices. And i hope one for this will fix the opening.

Death Note

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
A convoluted garbage with no consistent rules and giant leaps in logic on L’s part. Who is a magic government secret kid-detective. It’s not interesting and has nothing to show. Ryok is always bashfully hiding in the shadows, like some cheap horror killer, instead of always quirkily being in the open, like screenshots of the cartoon suggest. No one sees him anyway. The last chapter looks like unimaginable contrived trash, but it all is explained in the end and it’s the only thing which actually kinda works. If you came to terms with retarded setup and forgave it.

Dumb movies with abysmal plots are fine as long they don’t pretend to be serious or as long as they are using straight face to juxtapose the obvious absurdism. This is just pretentious ow the edge with nothing to show. The only nice thing is Willem Dafoe, though he should have played the Ryok and could do it without any make-up.

Murder on the Orient Express (2017)

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
A new Poirot movie starts with stache being too flamboyant, some bad joke(?) trying to characterize the protagonist as ???? and an “ow the edge” line, set up only to be shattered later, instead of using it as a stylistic choice for him.

This is my first orient express and it is just fine. A really nice classic murder mystery with no outstanding pieces (outside of this double stache) good or bad — everything inside the train is just right.

I’m barely familiar with the source material, but David Suchet’s Poirot is kind of outstanding in that field. Unlike the rest of the detectives, he is fat and poorly bald, but feels and positions himself as the most pretty male in the vicinity. Meanwhile Kenneth Branagh’s Poirot have stature, piercing blue eyes and imposing hairdo. It’s hard to distinguish him from Sherlocks or just any noir Detective with fedora. So it seems Branagh decided to overcompensate that with his overkill double-decker stache.

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
Doll Graveyard
Did someone overdose on some serious shchi?

An utterly boring and tired movie, which pretends to be a real horror, while it lacks the required budget and has a stale story. Well, at least it created Ooga Booga, who became a prominent figure in the future of Full Moon Cinematic Universe.


Yet another killer doll movie, where the premise is better than it’s execution. Shadow Man is kind of great, mobster’s brothers are nice too. Overall it’s just okay.

Totem (1999)

The movie has an interesting premise, but bad acting, choppy cinematography, random footage from some viking movie and an abrupt underwhelming ending are making it bad.


A typical horror movie from the Full Moon, with interesting characters and unusual premise.

I was hunting for it for some time since i first saw it on TV in the childhood. I though i missed the whole second part, but it turned out i probably watched it entirely, since it’s lacking a big fight and is mostly about people talking.

These kids are supposed to be kids\experiments of the Bride of the Head of the Family. Still waiting.

The Gingerdead Men

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
Gingerdead Man 2: Passion of the Crust

A meta-referential movie with the a great opening scene, and ridiculous puppets crucifying the Gingerdead. With the lower budget, the doll of the Gingerdead is much less articulate, but there is a scene where he is piloting a mech-suit. Also now the main antagonist has his own musical theme.

The title of this movie is plain great.

Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver
The Roller Disco Beauty Pageant Boogaloo.

The movie starts with the scene referencing The Silence of the Lambs and featuring some new puppets, after which it goes back to the past, to see the shitty roller disco that sucks ass. Well, to be honest, the footage with real disco rollers showing of their skill is kinda interesting.
The puppet is not very articulate, and the movie uses some rather cheap CGI, but overall it’s just yet another ridiculous comedy-horror from Full Moon, if you want one.

Evil Bongs

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
Evil Bong

A trivial stoner movie, which ties half of the Full Moon’s separate film series into one shared cinematic universe.

The bong is delivered by the Rabbit, who escaped Trancers 2, while in the bong world we have appearances from Ooga Booga of Doll Graveyard and kind of his own movie (which features the different soul and happens after Evil Bong: High 5), Ivan Burroughs of the Decadent Evil which is also tied to the Vampire Journals and Subspecies, Gingerdead Man of his own series, who will become a prominent character in the real world of Evil Bong later, Jack Attack of Demonic Toys, which ties it to the world where the first Demonic Toys really happened (Head of the Family, Blood Dolls, Hideous!, Demonic Toys 2: Personal Demons and nonexistent Bride of the Head of the Family and therefore maybe to Mystery Monsters; also featuring the footage from the Puppet Master series and crossovering with it in that real world or in that media world) and the world where it all was just a dream (Dollman, Bad Channels, Dollman vs. Demonic Toys), and the Jack Deth, again from Trancers.

The movie has a great main theme, but the rest is a vinegret of different tracks randomly starting and stopping. Also it has absolutely useless and somewhat obnoxious break-bumpers.
Overall it’s okay, but the main attraction is the singularity event for the Full Moon cinematic universe.

Evil Bong 2: King Bong

Second movie has new Alister, which is kinda addressed, and a very nice costume for Brett. Rabbit has switched his occupation yet again.

Just like with some classic sequels, it makes old Terminator Bong an anti-hero, whose help is required to defeat the new, more powerful version. Which is her (ex?) boyfriend — the King Bong.

Evil Bong 3D: The Wrath of Bong

This movie has yet another new Alister, which is also addressed. Structurally it repeats the second movie, with the new antagonist being an alien bong. The storyline is continued, but Alister plays a more passive role this time, with Larnell being the main action here, who saved everyone.
The uncontrollable alien weed infestation is dropped and never mentioned in the universe again, with the jungle weed returning as the main resource in this universe.

Gingerdead Man vs. Evil Bong

This movie makes The Gingerdead Man a prequel to the first Evil Bong, instead of one of the bong world creations, but at the same time it means that Passion of the Crust and Saturday Night Cleaver happened some time after the Evil Bong 666.

It’s fun that they had to use the same actress in two different roles, which she managed to pull off. But the ending is underwhelming and inconclusive.

The new special effects for the Gingerdead are superior to the plain puppet, which can’t move lips, from The Gingerdead Man sequels. Also it’s kind of great to see, that with the current improved technologies, one of the oldest technics became a good-looking one.

Evil Bong 420

Oh. Oh. I get it. It is not a movie anymore, it’s a line-series. With no resolution or catharsis for each individual “episode”. The Hambo getting the inspiration for Joe Cracker puts it before the Ooga-Booga movie. But the Doll Graveyard doll itself is already active and is attacking racists in this movie.
It’s interesting how strange the Hambo is. He is not a racist himself and he is disrespecting the real racist characters, but doesn’t even see any problems with his designs.

While the lack of catharsis is frustrating it’s still a tolerable joyride on the waves of the Full Moon cinematic universe. Because the current Gingerdead Man effects and writing are kind of great.

Evil Bong: High 5

And here now we finally have a conclusion to this story-ark. Even cliffhanger is better than nothing.
Considering that Hambo is still collecting his inspirations (BUY NOOOOOW), it places this movie before Ooga Booga in the timeline (which i will totally make). Also this movie namedrops Killjoy‘s Psycho Circus, but does it warrant including Killjoy series into Full Moon Cinematic Universe?
It’s a nice touch, that when hostages are being (c\h)arassed by Poontang tribe, one of them kind of likes it and the other isn’t. It includes >>the current year into the movie, without turning it into ancient genre trope of all girls are bi. Though… I just googled it and libtards turned this from being an offensive and degrading cliche into another autistic pride banner \o.

High-five times out of 10.

Why him?

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
What looked like yet another tired “meet the parents” type garbage, turned out to be “meet the parents” an okay movie. Instead of yet another “quirky” boyfriend, it actually more focuses on the gap in generations and is based upon >>the current year, instead of some inoffensive nowhen (which basically means garbage american 80s nostalgia, which this movie somewhat makes the fun of). It’s not only a two notches deeper than expected from the genre, it’s also somehow manages to be funny, while avoids “how do you do my fellow kids”. The second notch, mentioned before, is more agency for female characters and without any feminazi garbage. This is how it’s done right.

Thor: Ragnarok

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
It is a nice marvel sci-fi movie and is better than both Guardians of the Galaxy. But of course it’s MCU so it has two characters from the shared universe. Homecoming had one, this film has two, next one will have three? Iron Man 3 somehow managed to stay clean and wholesome, without outside help. And while Hulk plays a big role in the Ragnarok, Doctor Strange is used as a plot device in an insignificant fan-service scene. I know, that that’s exactly what is happening in modern comics, but they have almost a century of the backstory. And even at that, comics themselves are usually criticized by casual audience for jumping from series to series and being obtuse to get into. Movies haven’t yet reached that point, and it would’ve felt much better, if all those mixed-series movies were called just Avengers 10 or Avengers: Thor and Hulk’s Day Off, to signify that they are all from the same series and are interdependent.

While thematically somewhat related, Immigrant Song have no place with alien vikings and the rest of the OST, reminiscent of 80s tradition of “future music” consisting of light synth. Well, at least it’s not another 80s-masturbation fest and it uses mostly original music, which also isn’t generic orchestral non-independent garbage

So called “3D” is plain abysmal and disjointed, also it seems that this movie was (poorly) converted and was not filmed in 3D from the start. Перевод — говно для даунов, актёры озвучки отвратительные.

Hacksaw Ridge

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
A usual war movie, which somewhat lifts it structure from Full Metal Jacket. Despite being about less mentioned theatre of war and about medics, the movie still focuses on usual combat stuff, shooting and “war is hell”. On top of that several characters use BAR in full-auto without stock just for the kicks of it.

The movie spends some time on exposition, setting the character’s traits. It’s all made in cinematography, instead of text or dialogues, but also it’s written rather abrupt and obvious.

Despite all of that, the movie still works and don’t look particularly unrealistic. Thought it’s about a religious american nutjob in the first place.

If a nearest Call Of Duty doesn’t include a scene of shooting while being dragged by a medic as a vehicular section, what is even the point of the Call of Duty’s existence?

The Philadelphia Experiment (1984)

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
A classic modest tame fish out of water sci-fi movie, sometimes kind of overdoing helicopter shots for no reason. The protagonist have it nice, for no cost skipped the worst years to get to the slightly less worst years.

Сынок знаешь, ты тоже вот-вот кудесником станешь.
Dead in Tombstone

A nice action-western movie with Trejo as a main star. It has okay cinematography and a bunch of men in pretty dusters.

Bad Milo!
...with a killer butthurt...

I do not know. Is it tries to be, like, metaphorical? But there is no metaphor, there are only events, and those events are a shlocky slasher trying to be a family relationship movie. It's not interesting at both and the characters which do know what is happening hide the vital information for no reason. Despite unusual premise it's pretty dumb watch.

The Foreigner
...so, about that new predator movie...

A very nice action-thriller IRA movie with the foreign element which is not necessary to the plot nor story, but turns a tame political thriller into a gritty action movie just because. The only thing the foreigner does is recontextualize would be protagonist Liam into kind of a stained asshole.
While the movie has more dark and somber tone, it still uses signature Chan's cinematography several times. Which kind of feels like it's dissonates, but actually does not do that.

Bullet Head
One, Two, Freddy's Coming For You

A very unusuall film. It starts like a slasher movie with a puppy being the hunter and slowly turns into we aren't so different you and i over a series of flashbacks from every major character, including and especially the puppy.
This movie does that great thing, when you take an established cinematography of the genre and apply it to the unusual for it story and characters. Though, they should've used colour filter for dog-o-vision.

Фильм намного проще и беднее, чем его пытались мне продать. Для фильма одного актёра, актёрская игра вышла ну очень не убедительной. Впрочем из-за абсурдности ситуации он довольно забавен.
