Often called the male version of The Craft…yes…substitute 4 witches with four warlocks…and film them 10 years later…ta-dah…we have the Covenant.

The story: The first born male from four families all have supernatural powers and gains full power by the age of 18. But the powers are addictive…use it too much…and it will weaken and age them. Adding danger…the son of the fifth banished family has arrived, driven by revenge and greed, to destroy and steal their powers.

covenant2.jpgYou know what…I thought the story was interesting…it had the whole supernatural thing going on…it actually had potential…what a waste though…The bad script…the bad lines…and the acting…the horrible acting…pretty much ruined whatever potential it might have…and Wasn’t Pogue just robotic. The special effects…well that was so-so too….I liked the whole car crashing and resembling part…that was pretty much it…the others were just energy balls being thrown around…something like that.

Overall…Well…no surprise…it wasn’t great. But hey…I didn’t think it was horrible horrible…It is after all a teen supernatural flick…take it for what it is. And for what it was…it was rather entertaining…I wasn’t bored… 🙂 even with the horrible acting and lines…which was sometimes quite funny.

Went to the bookshop recently and saw the new Teen Vogue…and the cast of Harry Potter was on the cover!! Take a look at the pictures below. Aren’t the pictures gorgeous. And what a beautiful location…a very posh looking mansion.

Love the clothes….they’re preppy and look very expensive. Haha…I actually like Emma’s hair like that… big and messy…kinda reminds me of Hermione’s hair in the first movie…then it started getting neater and neater.

Anyway enjoy the pictures…click to view a larger version.

A struggling actress gets brutally killed and the cops are scrambling to solve the murder…film noir style of course.

What is film noir? That is the question… I went to wikipedia and searched for it. So its basically a stylish crime drama that’s usually visually black and white or using dark tones. Usually between 1940’s-1950’s. And of course they usually have the narration thing. A grim brooding mysterious voice. “ It was a dark wet night. We were waiting outside the suspects when…”Haha…that’s how they usually start of right? Anyway I didn’t read the whole wikipedia article…just too long…I’m not a film student.

I’m not really sure what I think of the film. It was interesting to say the least…seeing that I’m not familiar with the whole film noir genre…this is only the second film of the genre that I’ve seen. The first being Brick…but Brick one could say was a modern take…an adaptation of the classic film noir…where the setting is a high school…and I thought Brick was cool…smart and slick. Way way different from anything I’ve ever seen. I didn’t think the same way about the Black Dahlia.

The Black Dahlia was dark, grim, long and dreary. Things just seemed overly dramatic and sensual (was this supposed to be so?) I was also under the impression that the movie would be more on the case…the mystery of her death…but it took a turn and instead focused on how the case consumed a pair of detectives and a girlfriend (ok again…maybe this was the case in the book which the movie was based on). In the end…I was rather lost…couldn’t keep up with all the plots…I guess maybe film noir isn’t the genre for me. But I would definitely choose Brick over this.

Hello Again!

I’ve been having some trouble with Blogger lately…and well I thought…lets just move everything to WordPress. Still need getting use to the new format. I need to put in new links and a whole lot of other stuff. And I still need to import some of the stuff from Blogger too. That will take time. Hopefully I will get everything done soon. This will be my first post in weeks. So here goes…

Kinderspiele (1992)

Not sure if I got the spelling right… anyway its also known as Child’s Play.

The story is of Micha, a rebellious boy of about 12 or so in Germany around the 1960s. Much like 400Blows and Joe the King, Micha is a rather neglected kid…he feels unwanted and unloved. His mother has just moved out of the house and chooses to bring along his younger brother while he is left to the care of his sometimes violent father.

Micha struggles to prevent the divorce and becomes the mediator between his parents by passing along letters that he sometimes fabricated himself.Of course his naive attempts at bringing his family back together is unsuccessful.

***Spoilers***

His father angered at being made a fool by Micha, with the letters, started smacking him around. In self defence Micha grabed the nearest thing which was a hammer, struck his father on the head, and his father dies almost instantly.He cries and tries to wake him up. Next we see Micha in the bathtub trying wash his guilt away. And before the credits roll they showed a scene of several police cars in front of the family home. Several things could have happen here. The father does not make an appearance at work and his colleagues alerted the police. They find him dead…and Micha gets into a whole lot of trouble. But I think this seems more likely…Micha kills himself in the bathtub…he feels guilty of his father’s death and the fact his family won’t be together again. He doesn’t visit his mother and so the police goes and check the house. Anyway thats just what I think.

Overall the story is ok…rather sad. Slow at times but still managed to keep me watching.
