Paris Je T’aime, My Wife is a Gangster 3, The Messengers
Saw these three recently…no spoilers. From now on, I’m including link to trailers.
Paris Je T’aime
Had to see this because of the many fine talents behind this
compilation film.Ã‚ Ã‚ Basically it is 18 different love stories set in
Paris directed by 18 different directors.Ã‚ Ã‚ Bottom line:Ã‚ Ã‚ If Tom
Twyker’s is a 10, (which it is) then all the others are 1’s or lower.
Tom Twyker’s is so fucking good that it’s worth the admission alone.
There are some, such as “Bend It Like Beckham” Gurinder Chadha, that
plays like an after-school special.Ã‚ Ã‚ Wes Craven’s defines mediocrity.
You guys might be interested in Vincenzo Natali’s.Ã‚ Ã‚ This is the guy
who made “Cube.”Ã‚ Ã‚ Vampires in France with Elijah Wood.Ã‚ Ã‚ Christopher Doyle, famed cinematogrpaher of Kar Wai Wong’s stuff, etc, etc,… is a tribute to his own Asian woman fetish. It blows. Gus Van Sant’s is gay… both definitions. OH!! almost forgot… Alfonso CuarÃƒÂ³n thinks he’s now the master of the one-shot. It sucks moose cock.
But again..Tom Twyker’s is amazing.Ã‚ Ã‚ I sat there thinking… “my god,
this is why I still have faith in cinema.”Ã‚ Ã‚ It has the single most
important ingredient in filmmaking…HEART.

My Wife is a Gangster 3
I haven’t even seen 1 & 2… however I hear this is only a sequel in
name and I must see everything that Shu-Qi is in because… mark my
words…one day I’ll work with her.
So basically, this is a slightly amusing action comedy without much
action and questionable comedy.Ã‚ Ã‚ The first two films were huge
box-office in Korea…. for this film, they replaced the lead with
Shu-Qi, who is Taiwanese.Ã‚ Ã‚ Aryoung (Shu-Qi) is sent away from her
homeland of Hong Kong by her father, a mob boss, to protect her..there
she has to fight other mob people..including a female one.
So basically she plays fish out of water and hardly opens her mouth
the entire film.Ã‚ Ã‚ But she looks great and carries the film.Ã‚ Ã‚ The
others should also be mentioned for good comic timing.Ã‚ Ã‚ I’m ready to
chuck this DVD out the window… if any of you are interested…lemme
know.Ã‚ Ã‚ BTW, the first film was the first Korean film to be sold to
Hollywood for a remake.Ã‚ Ã‚ The remake is being produced by and starring
Queen Latifah.Ã‚ Ã‚ First, the French blockbuster “Taxi”…now this.Ã‚ Ã‚ At
least she knows her foreign cinema.

OH MY GOD!!!!Ã‚ Ã‚ I’m a fucking masochist!!!Ã‚ Ã‚ Once again…I subjected
myself to more Pang Brothers bullshit!!!Ã‚ Ã‚ I’ve reviewed “Re-Cycle” and
a couple of “The Eye” films on EG.Ã‚ Ã‚ Again and again, they have wasted
my time with their nonsense.Ã‚ Ã‚ BUT AT LEAST THOSE FILMS LOOK GOOD!!!
This is so incredibly boring.Ã‚ Ã‚ And it’s PG-13, so it’s one of those
horror films made for pre-teens.Ã‚ Ã‚ Raimi and Tabert produced this and
supposedly Eduardo Rodriguez (Curandero) did re shoots… my take is
that the studio was very unhappy with the Pangs’ work.Ã‚ Ã‚ Hell, I am.
IT SUCKS!!! Oh yeah…and who are the messengers?…. the title makes no sense.
I won’t even include the trailer on this review. Fuck ’em.
