"Attack on Titan: Part 1" won't likely satisfy anyone, as it's a weak adaptation, a weak standalone film and doesn't excel in the action or horror departments. But it's not unwatchable either and can even be enjoyable with the right crowd.
But those who understand my tastes know that I'm tired of the ordinary, conventional flicks that take no risks, so "Forbidden City Cop" immediately got into my pants with its strangeness. But the unique fight scenes and hilarious comedic antics seduced me into a satisfying relationship.
"Attack of the Vegan Zombies" is as strange as it sounds. It never ceases in delivering daft ideas and is surprisingly well made, despite the low budget. It's just a shame that the flick sabotages itself by trying too hard to be funny, when it was only funny when it was trying to be serious.
I shall bestow “The Purge” a kiss upon its forehead for actually trying to make a home invasion thriller something MORE than just your average home invasion thriller. The central idea of crime being legal for a day would’ve been cooler in a flick that wasn’t trapped within the confines of this subgenre, but it also made "The Purge" stand out more than the majority of them…
“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” does have its share of flaws, but it also has to be one of the most unsettling and brutal exploitation films I have ever seen, which is quite the accomplishment for a film that contains little on-screen bloodshed.
The problem with “Kiss of the Damned” is it aims to please the arthouse crowd, but it’s not good enough to really be considered a high brow film. Still, as far as erotic vampire films go, it was pretty erotic…You'll either like or loathe it. I'm still not sure what I feel myself.
I liked "Dora-heita", believing that it provided fun characters, an engaging story, a quirky sense of humor, exotic locations, fine cinematography, an eccentric score and awesome fight scenes. It might not be the best samurai flick of all time, but neither were the majority of flicks by Akira Kurosawa, Kon Ichikawa, Masaki Kobayashi or Keisuke Kinoshita. So why would you expect it to be anything more than a good film?
"The Men Who Tread on the Tiger’s Tail” is an interesting subversion of the Samurai genre, but it also shows that not everything Akira Kurosawa touched turned into gold. It’s a decent film, but it lacks substantial material.
