After a brief (for this site) hiatus, The Summer Movie Comparison Chart 2007 has been updated with the following two movies: innovative, moving limited-release animated film Tekkon Kinkreet (see my review at the Movie Binge) and the satisfying Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I love me some Potter.71 comments
Friend of The Face Knife Colin Rankine has added summer spectacular Live Free or Die Hard to the Summer Movie Comparison Chart 2007, the magnificent bastard! I’m still planning on seeing Transformers and Harry Potter to add them to the chart (and another addition being a film I’ve already seen (and highly recommend) Tekkon Kinkreet), but those run-times are abominable. I need some level *beyond* red for the danger-indicator in the runtime category of thee chart.82 comments
One of the beauties of filling out chart are the unexpected concordance between films, farcial though they may be. Multiple, identical birthmarks are just one of such coincidences to be discovered while perusing the chart.143 comments
As we hit the mid-way point of the summer season, the Summer Movie Comparison Chart 2007 swells to include Joshua (click for a delightful review), a delightfully creepy story of a boy who loves duets so much that he’d tear apart his family for more. Later this week, be amazed as the more esoteric charms of One to Another (click for a less delightful review) and TekkonKinkreet join the fun. If you’re missing the blockbusters, I plan to see a couple soon, so don’t worry - there will be room for them all on the Chart.172 comments
The Face Knife returns from 4th of July festivities to add the hilarious, ridiculous horror comedy Black Sheep to the Summer Movie Comparison Chart 2007, which was recently linked to again by the Guardian Film Blog. Do make sure to follow the above link to check out Kyria Abrahams’s excellent review of Black Sheep on The Movie Binge, which includes many helpful and enlightening links to YouTube videos that you really must see for yourself. It is not often that you get to study at the knee of an animal exploitation/horror specialist.190 comments
Next update, possibly tomorrow: Black Sheep. What happens when Sheep stop being polite, and start driving trucks and biting guys’ weiners off. Hey, it’s New Zealand.No comments
My review of the zombie satire Fido (2007) has been posted on The Movie Binge. Do check it out. I’ve referenced American Beauty and Tim Burton as signposts for the mediocrity of this film (which is not to unequivocably praise either of those two entities, particularly the former, which I despise).No comments
My review of Michael Moore’s new documentary Sicko has just been posted to The Movie Binge, which you should be visiting anyway, because a lot of very fine and very funny writers including the contributors to the The Summer Movie Comparison Chart 2007, which as you know is so effing funny, post reviews there. Tell your friends about the Binging.
Tomorrow: Sicko added to the chart (for reals!) and Fido review posted (double for reals!). Come back!No comments
The Face Knife Summer Movie Comparison Chart 2007 has been updated with not one, not two, but three movies. I’ve seen none of these movies, so thanks to Movie Bingers Matthew Perpetua and Erik Bryan. for adding Nancy Drew and F4: Rise of the Silver Surfer and Pirates of the Caribbean, respectively. Thanks for letting me dodge those bullets, guys.
More chart-fantastique next week. Tomorrow on the Movie Binge, my review of FidoNo comments
