Five out of Seven on the Chelsea’s Reviews Dramatic Level Meter

This movie slipped my mind for a while, I remember when I first heard of it and watched a couple trailers I was really into it, but then it seems to disappear for a while and I didnt hear of it agian until recently when i desided to watch it. Im glad that I did, and I wish I had have sooner.

This film is amazing. The woman are beautiful in their cultural robes and what not. The colours throughout this film were incredible, they were so vibrant, and goregous. This film did an amazing job depicting the problems that these people are having with children being sold for money…and being taken in for either prostitution, or for entertainment…to be mens dates or whatever. They didnt exactly sugar-coat anything in this film either, maybe a little..but they didnt try to make it seem as if they were trying to fix the problem as much as they were showing that this is whats happening and making people realize holy shit these poor young,young girls are being sold and forced to live places they dont want to live, away from their families especially..and they dont understand that they were sold as much as they think they were just taken. And they’re being forced to do things that they have no desire to do. But in the end these girls are brainwashed into thinking that they have to be a certain way, and they have to work to be beautiful when they were goregous to begin with. I like this film alot, and i would watch it again in a heartbeat.

8.5/10

Everything about this film is interesting, every scene and shot has a perfect motion. I didn’t really get into following the movie, not becuase it wasnt interesting, but becuase it just wasnt the right time for me to watch it.
I think if I watched it again in the near future I would have more respect for it. I look forward to seeing it again, I really enjoyed what I saw of it the first time.

The Acting Reviews;

Ken Watanabe

B+

I know that I’ve seen more films with Watanbe in them, I just can’t remember which ones. I love this actor though, I love all of the facial expressions that he makes, and all of the amazing roles that he can adapt to. Maybe it’s because he kinda looks like my uncle, but I just love watching his films. He really fit the part that he played in Memoirs of a Geisha well.

 Three out of Seven on the Chelsea’s Reviews Thrill-O Meter

To be completely honest – this movie had me soo confused for so long. The guy was a cop but he was really a bad guy, and the other guy was a bad guy but was a cop?….what!?…I guess that means it was an alright movie. Definately a movie that made you think as well as pay attention. If you turned your head through-out any of it, it felt as it you missed the biggest part everytime. But dont get me wrong, its not as exciting as i may be letting on. Although it made you think and pay attention. The story never really came together for me, i was still left kind of questioning every bit of it. But if youre into that type of movie then i suggest this one, and if not…steer clear of this one!

4.33/10

R

I actually kinda enjoyed this film, I didn’t think that I was going to – but it surprised me a little. Leonardo DiCaprio had done a phenominal job in his recent films. The idea behind the film was entertaining and the filming was really plain – but it worked. Although a couple parts about it , mainly the racist refrences, although I know the meaning behind it and everything …. I just feel like we should have gotten to a place in society now that we dont need to entertain eachother with biast comments. Just a thought though.

The film was alright, and Ill definatly watch it again, worth the money to rent it!

Sarah McLachlan – Fallen Lyrics

Heaven bent to take my hand
And lead me through the fire
Be the long awaited answer
To a long and painful fight

Truth be told I’ve tried my best
But somewhere along the way
I got caught up in all there was to offer
And the cost was so much more than I could bear

Though I’ve tried, I’ve fallen…
I have sunk so low
I have messed up
Better I should know
So don’t come round here
And tell me I told you so…

We all begin with good intent
Love was raw and young
We believed that we could change ourselves
The past could be undone
But we carry on our backs the burden
Time always reveals
The lonely light of morning
The wound that would not heal
It’s the bitter taste of losing everything
That I have held so dear.

I’ve fallen…
I have sunk so low
I have messed up
Better I should know
So don’t come round here
And tell me I told you so…

Heaven bent to take my hand
Nowhere left to turn
I’m lost to those I thought were friends
To everyone I know
Oh they turned their heads embarassed
Pretend that they don’t see
But it’s one missed step
You’ll slip before you know it
And there doesn’t seem a way to be redeemed

Though I’ve tried, I’ve fallen…
I have sunk so low
I have messed up
Better I should know
So don’t come round here
And tell me I told you so…

Sarah McLachlan – Building A Mystery Lyrics

You come out at night
That’s when the energy comes
And the dark side’s light
And the vampires roam
You strut your rasta wear
And your suicide poem
And a cross from a faith that died
Before Jesus came
You’re building a mystery

You live in a church
Where you sleep with voodoo dolls
And you won’t give up the search
For the ghosts in the halls
You wear sandals in the snow
And a smile that won’t wash away
Can you look out the window
Without your shadow getting in the way?

You’re so beautiful
With an edge and charm
but so careful
When I’m in your arms

Cause you’re working
Building a mystery
Holding on and holding it in
Yeah you’re working
Building a mystery
And choosing so carefully

You woke up screaming aloud
A prayer from your secret god
You feed off our fears
And hold back your tears, oh
Give us a tantrum
And a know it all grin
Just when we need one
When the evening’s thin

You’re a beautiful
A beautiful fucked up man
You’re setting up your
Razor wire shrine

Cause you’re working
Building a mystery
Holding on and holding it in
Yeah you’re working
Building a mystery
And choosing so carefully

Ooh you’re working
Building a mystery
Holding on and holding it in
Yeah you’re working
Building a mystery
And choosing so carefully

Yeah you’re working
Building a mystery
Holding on and holding it in
Yeah you’re working
Building a mystery
And choosing so carefully

You’re building a mystery

Sarah McLachlan – Sweet Surrender Lyrics

It doesn’t mean much
It doesn’t mean anything at all
The life I’ve left behind me
Is a cold room
I’ve crossed the last line
From where I can’t return
Where every step I took in faith
Betrayed me
And led me from my home
And sweet
Sweet surrender
Is all that I have to give
You take me in
No questions asked
You strip away the ugliness
That surrounds me
Are you an angel
Am I already that gone
I only hope
That I won’t disappoint you
When I’m down here
On my knees
And sweet
Sweet
Sweet surrender
Is all that I have to give
Sweet
Sweet
Sweet surrender
Is all that I have to give
And I don’t understand
By the touch of your hand
I would be the one to fall
I miss the little things
I miss everything (about you)
It doesn’t mean much
It doesn’t mean anything at all
The life I left behind me
Is a cold room
And sweet
Sweet
Sweet surrender
Is all that I have to give

Xavier Rudd- Green Spandex Lyrics

I guess this is the rushed goodbye
That I thought would never come
The woman who lit the light
For a family in the dark
Starring at the mirror
I see your smile through my own
Your spark embedded deep inside
Will give me strength
Will give us hope

And I’ll never lose your touch
No I’ll never lose touch

This will take me a while
Because I miss your smile
I guess I knew your time would come
But for now I miss your smile
It’s gonna take me a while

Thank you for your loyal stance
Green spandex and crazy style
Thank you for the happiness
That you gave to our lives
Although now our hearts are cracked
And our tears are slow to dry
We must count ourselves
The lucky ones
For we were with you in your prime

And I’ll never lose your touch
No I’ll never lose touch

Please stay in touch
Because I need you in my heart
Please stay in touch
I need your touch

Turistas (2006)

F

Overall Rating = 4.25/10
Type; Horror

One out of Seven on the Chelsea’s Reviews Scaro-Meter

The Story;

A group of people, some who knew eachother previously, others who just met all suffer a car accident in a bus together in Brazil on vacation. The get to know eachother well when they all get druged and robbed. After that they try to find there way out of the country without money or passports – on there way they run into a guy who says that he’ll help them.
They deside that the smartest thing that they could do is put there trust into this one man, they follow him to his uncles house in the middle of the jungle.

They ended up with a crazy man who surgically removes kidneys and other organs and sells them….

The rest of the story is them trying to get away from him and his people.

The Reviews;

Just like all the other pampered horror films based on young hot tourists travelling to other countries, having sex and ending with an expectedly high number of murders. It was really plain and boring, the only special thing about it was the landscape. The beautiful beaches and awesome underwater caves counter argued and beat out (in my opinion) the risk of travelling there. One thing about this film that was a little different from most others was the fact that the “big boss” did most of his dirty work himself, in most horror films theres only three common scenarios;
1. There’s a group of people lead by one main character, who’s in charge of everything – but always makes others do his work for him.
2. Solo – killer who never does anything with another person. Usually enjoys solitude and torturing his victims. In my opinion the creepiest of all.
3. And a large group of people with no boss at all – who are all just as stupid and life-less and eachother.
In my opinion this movie probably couldnt have been any better than it was cause the storyline was so flat.
One thing that really annoyed me about this movie was that it seemed like they were trying to make a point about how hard it is to get donations  for organ transplants in most countries – but Im sure if you look into it the organs that they used in the filming of this movie were probably real ones. Practice what you preach, I mean unless the makers of this film don’t have any really issue with the problem, in which case – why make a film about it?

5.33/10
B
I greatly disliked this movie, it was just like B said, it was exactly like every other travelling movie. There were young people, obviously a pair that was related…almost like house of wax. There was nudity, there was blood, and guts. Not making for a very nice mixture..This film was one that was not even close to being worth watching at all…All in all, i hated this movie.

50 Cent – P.I.M.P Lyrics

 I don’t know what you heard about me
But a bitch can’t get a dollar out of me
No Cadillac, no perms, you can’t see
That I’m a motherfucking P-I-M-P
Now shorty, she in the club, she dancing for dollars
She got a thing for that Gucci, that Fendi, that Prada
That BCBG, Burberry, Dolce and Gabana
She feed them foolish fantasies, they pay her cause they wanna
I spit a little G man, and my game got her
A hour later, have that ass up in the Ramada
Them trick niggas in her ear saying they think about her
I got the bitch by the bar trying to get a drink up out her
She like my style, she like my smile, she like the way I talk
She from the country, think she like me cause I’m from New York
I ain’t that nigga trying to holla cause I want some head
I’m that nigga trying to holla cause I want some bread
I could care less how she perform when she in the bed
Bitch hit that track, catch a date, and come and pay the kid
Look baby this is simple, you can’t see
You fucking with me, you fucking with a P-I-M-P

I’m bout my money you see, girl you can holla at me
If you fucking with me, I’m a P-I-M-P
Not what you see on TV, no Cadillac, no greasy
Head full of hair, bitch I’m a P-I-M-P
Come get money with me, if you curious to see
how it feels to be with a P-I-M-P
Roll in the Benz with me, you could watch TV
From the backseat of my V, I’m a P-I-M-P
Girl we could pop some champagne and we could have a ball
We could toast to the good life, girl we could have it all
We could really splurge girl, and tear up the mall
If ever you needed someone, I’m the one you should call
I’ll be there to pick you up, if ever you should fall
If you got problems, I can solve’em, they big or they small
That other nigga you be with ain’t bout shit
I’m your friend, your father, and confidant, BITCH

I told you fools before, I stay with the tools
I keep a Benz, some rims, and some jewels
I holla at a hoe til I got a bitch confused
She got on Payless, me I got on gator shoes
I’m shopping for chinchillas, in the summer they cheaper
Man this hoe you can have her, when I’m done I ain’t gon keep her
Man, bitches come and go, every nigga pimpin know
You saying it’s secret, but you ain’t gotta keep it on the low
Bitch choose with me, I’ll have you stripping in the street
Put my other hoes down, you get your ass beat
Now Nik my bottom bitch, she always come up with my bread
The last nigga she was with put stitches in her head
Get your hoe out of pocket, I’ll put a charge on a bitch
Cause I need 4 TVs and AMGs for the six
Hoe make a pimp rich, I ain’t paying bitch
Catch a date, suck a dick, shiiit, TRICK

Yeah, in Hollywoood they say there’s no b’ness like show b’ness
In the hood they say, there’s no b’ness like hoe b’ness ya know
They say I talk a lil fast, but if you listen a lil faster
I ain’t got to slow down for you to catch up, BITCH

Roxette – Joyride lyrics

I hit the road out of nowhere,
I had to jump in my car
And be a rider in a love game
Following the stars,
Dont need no book of wisdom,
I get no money talk at all.
She has a train going downtown,
Shes got a club on the moon
And shes telling all her secrets
In a wonderful balloon.
Oh shes the heart of the funfair,
Shes got me whistling her private tune.
And it all begins where it ends,
And shes all mine,
My magic friend.she says:

Hello, you fool,
I love you,
Cmon join the joyride,
Join the joyride.

Shes a flower,
I can paint her,
Shes a child of the sun,
Were a part of this together,
Could never turn around and run.
Dont need no fortune teller
To know where my lucky love belongs oh no.
Cos it all begins again when it ends,
And were all magic friends.
She says:

Hello, you fool,
I love you,
Cmon join the joyride,
Be a joyrider.
I take you on a skyride,
A felling like youre spellbound.
The sunshine is a lady
Who rox you like a baby.
