my very brief thoughts on.... 'Teenape Goes To Camp'

who doesn't like a good/bad movie....?!?! (well, some people don't i guess.) i love em'....! and i've stayed away from LBP: Low Budget Productions movies because they look bad/bad not good/bad.... when 'Teenape Goes To Camp' came up on Netflix OnDemand, i decided it was time to give it a go.... the reviews were poor, the comments were poor and very little was positive.... however, the thought of a dude in a gorilla mask talking like a stereotyped urban dweller and the chance to see some of the worst sex scenes in movie history.... how could i say no....? and boy, i wasn't sorry.... granted this was not high art and walked a thin line between good/bad and bad/bad, it ended up being worth my barely over 1 hour running time to watch it.... it's so incredibly stupid and over the top that it's dumb fun.... i would recommend you watch it alone, as it's not something you want your friends to find out you're watching.... trust me.
there are so many things wrong with this movie, but a lot of them have to do with budget constraints.... the script is piss poor, but that adds to the charm.... the characters are WAY over the top and half of them don't even make sense.... the acting is TERRIBLE.... the "action" sequences at the climax of the movie are laughable.... all that being said, would i watch another Teenape movie....? HECK YEAH....! something about it is so charming.... and i can't pinpoint what it is, it's just fun and stupid.... i honestly think that's what the filmaker was intending.... i don't think anyone ever set out to make a good movie.... i think it's just a bunch of overgrown adult kids with a camera and a lot of extra time.... either way, watch it.... if you can make it all the way to the end, you might just thank me....

if you like this, dig around.... these guys have made some other movies that i'm sure are equally as bad.

my very brief thoughts on.... 'Anatomy of Hell'

well, well, well.... Catherine Breillat you've done it again.... you've written another pretentious, overly hyped piece of crap.... at least this one only ran a bit over an hour.... i've sat through three of your films now an i can honestly say i'm not a fan.... and i don't understand your place in cinema.... maybe i'm watching the wrong films of yours....? perhaps i don't understand them....? (i kind of doubt it.) or perhaps they're just garbage....? just because something is provocative and the people talk like overly educated hipsters doesn't make it art.... and just because you include XXX rated nudity and sex, doesn't make it high art.... i've seen films that include hard core scenes and they made sense with the story.... in your movies, it seems like you do it just to shock and to give yourself a name....
to everyone else who may see this movie or 'Romance' or 'A Real Young Girl'.... stop yourself before you start.... or watch it and see if you agree with what i'm saying....? 'Anatomy of Hell' is OnDemand right now on Netflix.... i personally have seen enough of her work now that i can say i'm not a fan and i've given her every opportunity to make me one.... she's going to continue making movies and she's going to continue getting praise and i'm going to continue ignoring them.... ah well.... so be it.

if you want something sexually explicit with bad dialogue, watch a porn.
