Kynodontas

Kynodontas on IMDB I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted, so I’m giving you a good one ;)

As usual, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. No background on this before I watched it, but when it was all said and done, it deserves to be on this site.

Kynodontas is about a family in Greece that is tightly controlled by the parents. The three kids don’t know anything about the civilized world. Their little world begins to unwind when the father brings home a co-worker for his son to relieve himself with sexually.

What a weird concept for a movie. If you think you’ve seen a family that is abnormal, they will be perfectly normal after watching this movie.

Below is a trailer:

RocknRolla

I know most of you have seen Lock, Stock, And Two Smoking Barrels from Guy Ritchie, but this steps it up a notch. I can’t list all of the big name cast, there’s too many. Gerard Butler, Tom Wilkinson, Thandie Newton, Jeremy Piven, and hell, even Ludacris.

The plot doesn’t focus on a certain group over overall situation. That situation is a Russian mob boss trying to build a building in the UK. The top mob boss is the one that can make this happen. But due to unforseen events, things unfold not as they plan.

I definitely recommend this movie if you like the UK crime/action type movie. Top notch!

Inland Empire

I had no idea what was going on in this one. True David Lynch style. The basic premise is that these people are making a movie. They didn’t know it had been tried to be made before and has since been called cursed due to bad luck or whatever.

That’s where  I left because it was boring. From IMDB: “An actress’s perception of reality becomes increasingly distorted as she finds herself falling for her co-star in a remake of an unfinished Polish production that was supposedly cursed.” AKA COMPLETE MIND FUCK. Didn’t have any idea what was going on in the beginning.

Now Lynch has written and made a lot of cool films, and even this is ranked a 7.1 on IMDB, but this film was too boring for even me. That does say something. Unless you have a bit of time to kill and are absolutely bored, I’d skip this movie.

The I Inside

Ryan Phillippe stars in this mind twisting movie, along with Piper Perabo and Sarah Polley. Thinking about it, it’s almost like The Butterfly Effect, but not. Anyway, it’s about a guy (Phillippe) who wakes up in a hospital with amnesia and can’t remember the last two years of his life or how he got there.

As his memory comes back he finds himself traveling in time between two points in time where he attempts to try and change what cannot be changed.

Overall, it was a good movie as long as you like mindfuck movies (if you didn’t why are you here?). If you liked the idea of The Butterfly Effect I think you’d like this, at least I enjoyed it. Easy enough to watch and not require a lot of brain cells, but maybe just a bit too much for the general audience.
