Whispering Corridors 4 (Voice) review

Posted : 5 years, 3 months ago on 9 March 2012 07:17 (A review of Whispering Corridors 4 (Voice))

The 4th installment in the Whispering Corridors franchise is my favorite and plays out like a mystery rather than an outright ghost horror story. The series which was going a little bit stale after the 3rd movie needed a shot in the arm and this movie revived the flagging franchise. It’s like the filmmakers took the best aspects out of the previous three movies and put them in this one and what you get is this remarkable story. It relies on the characters to drive this movie rather than going for the cheap shock option and I have to say it works pretty well and looks fresh. Even though it may be more of a mystery movie, it’s still got a couple of really good scares and some great death scenes. As with a lot of Asian horrors, this movie also borrows some plot elements from others in the genre. The movie has some nice twists though the ending might confuse some viewers. The soundtrack accompanying the movie is fantastic and creepy. All round good performances from the cast. Recommended.

Love Me Do

Love Me Do
This is a great London-based love story with a twist about a female investment banker and an out of work actor whose relationship veers off the rails towards crime. Set entirely in a minimalist London townhouse, it follows their relationship from the beginning where neither trusts one another and it just builds from there. Jack Gordon and Rebecca Calder are excellent as the couple. It's not a fast movie and it involves a lot of talking but it is richly rewarding. I didn't know what to expect from this movie having heard so little about it but it was well worth checking out.

The Armed Policewoman
Lackluster HK action comedy about a group of new armed female police officers on the job. I was expecting an all action movie and although the set pieces on show are entertaining, it concentrates mostly on the silly situations the new recruits gets up to. Carrie Ng is probably the best out of all the cast. Quite disappointing.

Your Lie in April

7/10

Your Lie in April
Last year I enjoyed watching the anime version of Your Lie In April as it had memorable characters, a great soundtrack and a touching storyline. Would the live action version be just as good or not? It's a story about a teenage boy Kousei Arima who gave up playing piano after his mother passed away. Two years later, he meets a beautiful and free spirited violinist Kaori Miyazono, in the month of April, who inspires him to face music again. This movie closely follows what takes place in the anime though they've had to squeeze in everything into the 2 hour running time. Naturally they've had to cut and change some things so the movie mostly concentrates on the two teens' relationship. I felt they didn't do the scenes of Kousei not being able to hear music properly very well. In the anime he feels like he's underwater and sounds feel muffled. What they did in this movie instead wasn't as good. Suzu Hirose as Kaori and Kento Yamazaki as Kousei do a good job of representing their characters though I would say Yamazaki shades it better than Hirose. For those that haven't seen or read the anime/manga, be prepared to get those tissues out near the climax. Overall, I think this was a decent enough adaptation but I would definitely recommend that you see the anime to get the full picture of the story.

The Blonde Fury (Female Reporter)
Cynthia Rothrock is an FBI agent who goes undercover as a newspaper reporter in Hong Kong to catch some money counterfeiters. Your not going to watch this movie for the storyline but for the fights and Cynthia delivers with some good set pieces though you will have to wait until halfway through the movie for them to appear. They're fast, inventive, brutal, intricate and with a lot of genuine skill on display. When you've got Corey Yuen choreographing the fights you know they are going to be great. Cynthia is OK in her acting and is quite charming. Slow to begin with but then puts it's foot on the pedal with the action, The Blonde Fury is very entertaining.

Han Gong-ju
A teenage girl who has been subjected to a terrible atrocity tries to escape her past by moving away to a new area. Her new classmates at achool doesn't understand why she's so cold with them and no matter how hard she tries, her past ultimately catches up with her. This hard hitting drama is based apparently on a real life incident in South Korea that took place in 2004. It takes a while for the viewer to get used to the jumps back and forward in time. The story is also a bit of a slow burner as what Han Gong-Ju has been subjected to takes it's time in rearing it's ugly head but when the revelation is revealed it's enough to make you sick. Chun Woo-hee is superb as the title character in what is a difficult subject to tackle on film but she does extremely well. Make no mistake, this isn't an easy movie to watch but it's gripping and devastating. Another brilliant movie from South Korea.

Girl with a Pearl Earring
A wonderful and subtle movie, with great attention to detail. Sets are magnificent, particularly Vermeer's house and the canal at night. Atmosphere was beautifully captured, showing just why life could be so oppressive for a live-in servant, even if she was generally well-treated. This movie provides real insight into 17th century Holland. Scarlett Johansson is excellent as Griet with Colin Firth also excelling as the Dutch master painter Johannes Vermeer. All that's left to say is this movie is a visual tour de force.

Days of Thunder
As many have said about this movie, it's basically Top Gun on the ground, full of a lot of noise and action paired with a fantastically awful, Scotch-taped-into-place love story. Some of the action sequences are worth seeing, and there are some nice touches of comic relief but they're sorely needed because the rest of the movie is so mind-numbingly heavy-handed. A muddled mess - there's plenty of eye candy and super-cool stunts, but you don't have a movie without a story. A completely forgettable Tom Cruise movie.

Suzanne
This movie is a family saga taking place over a quarter of a century involving the central character Suzanne, her sister Maria, and single parent father. The two sisters look after each other whilst the father whose job is being a truck driver is absent a lot of the time. Suzanne starts going off the rails - becoming pregnant with a child and no idea who the father is and then falling in love with the criminal Julien. Her life then gets worse. There's a lot to like in this character driven French movie. The viewer will no doubt shake their heads at how stupid Suzanne is. When she gets a 2nd and even a 3rd chance of moving on with her life she blows it and loses everything. The only problem is it doesn't show or even explain why she does what she does. Credit has to go the 2 main actresses in Sara Forestier and Adele Haenel who are fantastic in their roles. This movie might sound if it's a little bit depressing (and it is) but there is a ray of hope at the end. I enjoyed this tale even if it was an uncompromising tale of growing up.

Stone Cold
This movie was supposed to catapult former US football player Brian Bosworth as an action star for the 90's but unfortunately this movie tanked big time at the box office. Bosworth plays an undercover cop forced to infiltrate a biker gang led by Lance Henriksen. He wants to kill a D.A who has vowed to dismantle crime gangs one by one. This is a good cheesy b-action movie full of shootouts and explosions. It won't win any awards but will keep you entertained and has a quick pace with hardly any time for the story to get boring. The extremely violent ending in the courthouse is rather over the top courtesy of a motorbike crashing into a military helicopter! Brian Bosworth is fine as the hero. I've seen far worse actors than him in these type of movies! Lance Henriksen is superb as the head villain Chains. Overall it just has everything to satisfy your action movie needs.

This oddball Danish comedy will not be to everybody's taste. It's about 2 brothers who after the death of their father, they learn that they were both adopted and that their biological father lives on the tiny (fictional) Danish island of Ork. So off they go to try and find him. This movie is little bit interesting (in an odd way) and can be entertaining depending on what you like in a story. It's a tough movie to describe. It includes comic violence, bizarre situations, gross-out humour, very dark comedy and even some sweetness. It's fun to see Mads Mikkelsen play so well against type. Many will find this movie too strange, but some will find it irresistible. It sadly didn't do anything for me.

The Red Turtle
There are certain movies that touch you forever and The Red Turtle is one of them. Using beautiful animation and music the story delivers with no dialogue. Michael Dudok de Wit weaves a deceptively simple story into a tapestry of life, survival and love. This is not a story for children or movie goers that are looking for the next CGI high. However, for anyone with a heart and longing for a beautiful tale, this is a movie for you. Amazing.
