Grizzly Man

Grizzly Man ReView

(Edit) 15/02/2007

I Watched 'Grizzly Man' Two Days ago (16/02/07). I was surprised at my like, dislike, anger, respect, fondness and pity for the late Timothy Treadwell. A very odd man, who's beliefs represent a lot of my own, yet, his way of going about things was very curious and boardering on quite worrying in parts! Gorgeous scenes of the bears and foxes, nature and the elements are perhaps the only thing this documentary stands out for. Surprisingly enough, the lovely scenes overshadow the 'star' Timothy Treadwell. A morbid part of me was very disappointed at the fact that the audio recording of the fatal bear attack, was not played to us, the audience. Also, the hints were there that, perhaps, the autopsy/attack photos would be shown, but it is all left to the viewers imagination. Being rated a 15 certificate, I was expecting to be blown away by the severity of the attack etc. Maybe, that is very wrong, but shock tactics are something a lot of documentary makers use, so viewers are very used to graphic images now days. I just felt a little patronised at the 'hiding' and 'secretiveness' of the attack audio recording/photos. Also, it was VERY hard to distinguish the fact and fiction from each other! The friends/Family interviewed seemed, to me, like actors! Their movements, reactions and demeanours were those of second rate Actors at that. Very odd. Overall, a half decent documentary, masquerading as a gory tale of high drama and suspense. I was neither suspended or riveted. The animals are the stars and Treadwell has succeeded in capturing some amazing beautiful shots, showing nature and its connections and boundaries to humans.

Rent

Rent ReView

(Edit) 15/02/2007

Rent was rented by Me in the Hopes of Melodic ecstacy renting My Ears out for the Night. A few Good Songs (the Opening number and 'AIDS Support Group' number) were Sung wonderfully and stirred the Musical-Lover in Me. The rest of the Songs were below par and the Acting was not that Great either. Idina Mendzel was brilliant, but the rest of the cast were dissapointing. This is definately no 'Phantom of the Opera'!!!! The plot dragged on and on and on and on.......

The Viewer that wants to See a rock/opera to 'Feel' the Music and be 'Moved' is not going to get that with this Movie Musical.

There was no real message or overall 'tone' to the Movie. It is does not grab or pull Emotion out of the Viewer. No doubt, it was wonderfull on Stage, but at Home 'rent' is tedious and the plot is messy.

Apart from Idina Mendzel (as Mentioned Before) and a Couple of Great Songs the only 'wow factor' this Movie Musical has, is that it was produced by Mr. Robert De Niro!!!!
