Whispering Corridors 4 (Voice) review

Posted : 5 years, 8 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.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
The movie undoubtedly had great visuals with an amazing universe to get into, but the promising characters and plot turned out to be a major disappointment. The plot itself could have been amazing and very thrilling, but instead it felt rushed and underdeveloped with many plot-holes and unanswered questions. There were countless scenes that felt unnecessary and over-dramatic as well. The characters weren't much better. The two main characters could have also been interesting and engaging, but turned out to be hypocritical and awkward. Their relationship and dialogue was very forced, cheesy, and predictable. Even most of the background characters turned out to be wasted or unnecessary. The movie left me feeling irritated and confused, but the world-building, action, and visuals are the only saving graces.

This has been called one of the worst movies ever made and I can see why as well. It is total garbage and zilch to recommend about it. It's a cheap ripoff of Robocop. I could spend hours detailing all the problems I have with this movie, but I'll just list them. The special effects are dreadful, the dialogue is silly and nonsensical, the music is beyond annoying, the actors have zero charisma, the acting is painful to watch, the few attempts at comedy are cringeworthy, the ending is totally ridiculous, and the whole thing is a boring mess. The list is endless. Don't waste 90 mins of your life watching this crap, find another better movie instead!

Into the Forest of Fireflies
What an absolutely stunning anime movie this is and yet another fine example of Japanese creativity and talent to make a heart warming story. A young girl named Hotaru gets lost in the woods during a summer vacation in her uncle's mountain lodge. Just when she starts to fear no one would find her, a young man with a mask covering his face appears and shows the way home. But there's something mysterious about Gin, and as it seems, he may even be a forest god in a human form. This movie draws heavily on Japanese tradition and mythology about the yokai - mysterious and playful spirits that inhabit the forests of Japan. All in all, this is a superb anime tale that will tug at the heartstrings.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle
I don't think anyone expected the original 'Kingsman' to be as big and enjoyable as it was and now the sequel has come along for a fun if familiar journey. New plot theme, cool humour, and some crazy fast paced loud action. It may not be as fun as the first movie but it is entertaining. This movie offers some crazy insane action sequences from the opening car chase to the snowy mountain fight. The fight scenes are fast and can be brutal. Julianne Moore was a great addition as the villain. Having her own fortress in the middle of the forest named Poppy Land which has a look of the 1950s town with robotic dogs and guards. The 3 main leads in Taron Egerton, Mark Strong and Colin Firth are fantastic and bounce off each other brilliantly. I was surprised how funny Elton John was as Poppy's hostage. Overall, Kingsman: The Golden Circle is a very entertaining action spy movie. It has some creative loud action but it can be overbearing with the cheesy CGI. Definitely well worth watching if you loved the first one.

Blade Runner 2049
Following on from the original was always going to be difficult, but I think 2049 pulls it off in a way that is satisfying to old-time fans, and people watching without having seen the original. The movie retains the atmosphere of its predecessor, partly due to the magnificent score of Hans Zimmer, partly due to the excellent visuals and overall theme of hope. Jared Leto was good as Niander Wallace, who is trying to create replicants who are happily subservient and it's a shame he didn't get more screen time. Ryan Gosling proves he is a capable actor by carrying the movie as K, and Harrison Ford, while old, still retains his old acting charm. It did go on for far too long and should have been 30 mins shorter but apart from that this was a very good sci-fi movie.

This movie is unexpected and an experience like you've never had in your life. This is exactly why I enjoy Darren Aronofsky's work, you get to see stuff you've never seen before. It's a difficult watch in parts I won't lie about that. It's suspenseful, shocking, some will absolutely love it and others will despise it. I enjoyed it because it comes at you like a ton of bricks - it grabs you and doesn't let go. Its a cerebral thrill ride, a mystery of epic proportions until the end, at which point your brain is scrambled eggs. Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem were incredibly good together. I'd be lying if I said the movie didn't have its issues because it does, but I still really enjoyed it. Go and watch this with an open mind.

Happy Death Day
This is a horror-comedy that very knowingly takes the core conceit of Bill Murray's Groundhog Day and smashes it together with the slasher genre as one girl desperately tries to find out how to stop herself being murdered or she is doomed to replay the same day forever. It's surprisingly fun and effective, with the right balance of humour, scares and character development. The mystery of the killer's identity is another part of the fun. The movie introduces a bunch of characters in the first loop, many whom are red herrings for the audience to suspect. In the end I failed to guess the killer since the movie deployed multiple misdirection to make sure the secret is preserved. Overall, Happy Death Day is a pretty enjoyable horror flick with an interesting concept and a very good performance from the lead actress. I was not bored for even a second because of how fun it was. Yes it is absolutely implausible, bonkers and silly, but if you are looking some cheap thrills and a reason to crack a smile, this movie does its job pretty damn well.

Lady Chatterly vs. Fanny Hill
A British sex comedy so bad that even one of it's stars in Joanna Lumley is embarrassed about it! Two brothel Madams place a bet against each other that their top girl is better than the other in a series of challenges in which they have to try and seduce the unseducables. For a sex comedy it really is tame stuff. Only right at the beginning do you see any nudity. The comedy (if that's what you can call it) is piss poor and the less said about the acting the better. Penny Brahms is beautiful to look at but her acting skills is terrible. This movie is definitely bottom of the barrel stuff and as such should be avoided.

C.H.O.M.P.S.
A fun family movie about a young inventor that creates the ultimate security system - a robot dog based on his own canine pet named C.H.O.M.P.S (Canine Home Protection System). Incredibly fast with x-ray eyes and super strength, the robot dog can do just about anything. However, rival security companies try their best to steal technical plans for the robotic dog so that they can build and sell their very own for large profits. This isn't the greatest kid-geared movie made, but it is a lot of fun to watch and certain to bring a smile on your face. It's especially fun if you're a dog lover. Sure, some of what is going on is dopey but this is simple innocent entertainment after all. Just watching the little dog in action is pure joy, as he is able to scale walls, "pull" trucks, and operate machine buttons to capture the bad guys. Kids are sure to enjoy this movie.

The Seven Magnificent Gladiators
This is the Italian swords and sands version of The Magnificent Seven in which 7 brave warriors defend a small village against an evil man and his troops. Han, the leader of the brave warriors has a secret weapon - a magic sword that only he can hold. It's not a good telling of The Magnificent Seven story truth be told. The acting isn't great and the battles between the two factions aren't very exciting. Lou Ferrigno is OK as Han though his voice is clearly dubbed but there's always the busty Sybil Danning to take your mind off the cack handed plot. Only watch this is you really haven't got anything better to do.

Kiss Kiss, Kill Kill
The first in a series of German imitation-Bond movies made in the mid-60's and a rather good one too. This one's got it all – a likable lead in Tony Kendall, a put-upon sidekick in Brad Harris, over-the-top gadgets, lots of beautiful women (Maria Perschy, Christa Linder etc), a wonderfully entertaining villain, a cool underground lair, fight scenes galore, terrific European locations, a catchy title song, and a great explosive finale. What more could you ask for? Throw in a brainwashed army of women with matching blond hair, groovy black outfits, and machine guns (Fembots?), and you've got one heck of a cool movie. It may have stolen some ideas from the 007 movies but it's still got some charm and originality on it's own. The movie may start a bit slow, but once it gets going, it's just a ton of fun.

A Taste of Honey
This movie was a milestone in British cinema, and also introduced the magical young Rita Tushingham to the screen for the first time. It revolves around a 16 year old girl Jo who gets pregnant by a black sailor who abandons her soon after and also her despicable mother who is more interested in having a good time with men than looking after her daughter. She also abandons her daughter after getting married. Jo meets Geoffrey, a homosexual man who moves in with her and promises to look after her. This is a classic movie of a now vanished world. It really is a true picture of what life was like in the working class communities of Britain's northern industrial cities. There is extensive location filming in Manchester and the surrounding area. Barton Swing Bridge and the Manchester Liners Shipping Company, Old Trafford Football Ground complete with floodlight pylons, the atmosphere of a back street boozer and Blackpool's brightly lit amusements are seen. The acting is tremendous with Dora Bryan superbly cast as the selfish mother, Rita Tushingham the gawky teenager full of youthful wonder of her harsh world and Murray Melvin as the young adolescent battling with his sexuality and feelings for the enchanting Tushingham. It's a must see for anyone interested in what is known as a kitchen sink drama or who lives or has worked around Manchester.
