Children of Men --
Like I said, very hard choices to make, but I didn't just want to fill up a page with an endless list -- This film should be on everyone's must-see list of strange films for 2007 -- the cast and the acting is very good indeed, and it contains one of the most impressive unbroken/unedited single-shots I've ever seen in any film, wherein a child is taken from a man by gunmen & the camera never breaks as the man chases after the child through a battlezone & only cuts after he gets the child back.  A single scene involving dozens of extras and explosions and a set about 10 blocks long.  One shot.  About 15 minutes long. I've seldomn seen anything more technically impressive.
Devil Dog --
Do you mean Devil Dog:  Hound From Hell???  AAAuuughh!!  The puppies!  The killer puppies!!  The rooster-feather collar!!  Laughed myself sick . . .

Not only that, but that scene is emotionally exhaustive to the viewer.  The only child born in 18 years, possibly the last chance for the human race, a ray of hope in a world resigned to fading to black, is being carried pell-mell through a raging warzone.

And the only person who understands everything, but looks on the child for what it is:  a defenseless innocent, is unarmed and doing everything he can to reach that child and the terrified young mother - through streets filled with bullets and chaos.

Yes, that's all important stuff to note as well -- The film is highly Mythological, with the Hero doing seemingly impossible tasks, but in a highly realistic fashion.  All the violence in this movie seems dangerous & potentially fatal, none of it fake or make-believe.
Yet the ending remains magical & ambiguous -- a neat trick, given all the blood & grit preceeding it.
Generally, I don't care for birth scenes or films revolving around the fate of children, but this film won me over completely.
Donald Sutherland has a fine moment as a semi-hermit who meets a sad end.  The chase sequences are some of the best ever & need to be seen by anyone contemplating shooting a chase for their own film.
Clive Owen is an exceptionally strong actor in everything I've seen him in --
Ever see him as that detective who's gradually losing his eyesight in that BBC series?  This was before he started getting starring roles in Americn films.

Children of Men was my second favorite release of 2006, right behind The Departed.

I put together a list of my favorite releases of 2007. The link is to my blog entry about it (or it was until I found out the phorum software won't let me write the full URL, so scroll down to the January 3rd entry), which I won't reprint here because it is long and I am usually more profane there than I am here.

10. Vacancy
9. Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon
8. Hot Fuzz
7. I Am Legend
6. Superbad
5. Ratatouille
4. Shoot 'Em Up
3. No End in Sight
2. Grindhouse
1. No Country For Old Men

I also put together a list of the worst films I saw in 2007, not restricted to the year. Here is the link to the blog entry, and if you thought the preceding entry was profane, don't read this one.

10. Sheitan (2006)
9. Creepshow III (2006)
8. Stupid Teenagers Must Die! (2006)
7. Transylvania 6-5000 (1985)
6. The Stink of Flesh (2004)
5. Gut-Pile (1997)
4. Die You Zombie Bastards! (2005)
3. Calvaire (2004)
2. Xanadu (1980)
1. Feed (2005)

It wasn't a good year for great movies. It was a good year for some really bad movies, which I guess means it wasn't that good a year. I actually did watch some brilliant films last year, I just haven't put together a list of non-2007 releases.

I'm always a little surprised to hear anyone rip TRANSYLVANIA 6-5000.  Not a good movie by any stretch of the imagination, but Geena Davis' wardrobe alone should keep it off any "worst of" lists, IMO.

I'm not complaining about Geena Davis' wardrobe. Honestly I wasn't expecting to dislike this one as much as I did, but I don't think I laughed once and much of the movie actively annoyed me.

Bad humor is just an awful experience, and everybody has different tastes.  99% of the population might say that a certain movie is the best ever made.  The 1% that says it is the worst ever made is not wrong, the movie simply didn't entertain them and did everything wrong to entertain those people.

Now, for that one person who disagrees with everybody, about everything: we need to find a way to get them back to the bizarro dimension.

I'm just kidding, Mofo R., there's nothing wrong with your choice of TRANSYLVANIA 6-5000 as one of the 10 worst.  I was really just looking for an excuse to reminisce about Geena Davis' wardrobe!

No matter how much of Geena they show, they can't stop with the bad jokes & awful puns. I'd like to think Micheal Richards kharma for making this movie is in full effect... between this and UHF, I really wish he'd try working in a different profession, maybe sanitation.

BEST -Huh...dang...ok-I'll get back to that...

 WORST-This is MUCH easier-
.AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE movie-How can you f#ck up a cartoon movie sooooo badly? Never saw the cartoon...knew about it-never watched it. I bought it for my son Eddie. I watched...eh...'bout half of it. Dumbest thing I ever saw. And not in a good way. Total crap.
.JACKASS- the title says it all. Whatta buncha jackasses. Overpaid MTV idiots who think that 'cool' is teaching my kid to be a retard. I couldn't sit through it all....

Grade Z-No-budget surprise: Tim Ritter's KILLING SPREE. Funny,gory,stupid. Yet highly watchable and hilarious.  Thumbup Thumbup Thumbup


 .

So what did your kid think of 'Killing Spree'?

Best Movies:

 Fido
 Boy Eats Girl
 Horror Express
 Robocop
 Naked Massacre

And the winner equals: FIDO! Partly because of my twisted love of zombies, and parly for the fact that I watched it at two o'clock in the morning, and anything's funny at that hour.


Worst:

 Oasis of the Zombies
 Slashed Dreams
 The Cold
 Kaw
 Dead Clowns

 And the equalization goes to: Dead Clowns! Because this movie had absolutly nothing going for it, and becaue Oasis had the reoccurring gun, skull, and swastika of doom, which was rather funny, and the Cold inspired the great linage: The millionairs have unleashed the shark! And those were the only two close seconds.
