KILL BILL: VOLUME 1

OUR RATING: (Great) 4 out of 5 score.
Kill Bill: Volume 1

This movie was just awesome. Unfortunately, since it is broken up into two seperate volumes, I do not think Volume 1 stands alone as a Best of the Best film. Such an honor is reserved for truely remarkable films. Those that stand on their own and stand up to the test of time.

Everyone is looking forward to Kill Bill Volume 2, perhaps an extended review of the plot and characters to follow that release. A must-have for any DVD collection. I'll buy it when they release it as a Two-Volume Special Edition set.


UNDERWORLD

Underworld

This was a fun movie. Lot of action, quite a bit of violence. Lead actress, Kate Beckinsale, was quite nice. I think the amazon.com review said it best by describing the film as a "cuisinart movie (blend a lot of familiar ideas and hope something interesting happens)" -- who could argue with the accuracy of that review.

This film was basically Blade 3, but with a female. Blade 4 is actually set to be released in the next year or so. How original. I'll go ahead and get all prophetic by saying I believe the film will involve Wes Snipes killing vampires with a big sword and some guns. We'll see.


COLD CREEK MANOR

Cold Creek Manor

Pretty slow. Saw it quite awhile ago and found myself reading a synopsis soley to help me recall this sorry excuse for a movie. Sharon Stone spreading her legs wouldn't have done much for this movie, but it would have helped -- slightly.

There was some character development, but not much. Skip it.

Feel free to add your own review via comments.


ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO

Once Upon a Time in Mexico

This movie had a lot of style and a decent plot. Johnny Depp successfully takes over the screen with an over-the-top and often comical character.

The amazon.com link brings you to a special-combo DVD set that includes this film as well as Desperado -- which ties into this plotline. It is in my wishlist, too. Great for any DVD collection. Don't miss out on this one.
