Final Destination 5

Lots of people dying. In 3D. What else did you expect?

Watch Video

Really nothing else to review this week?

also what is the name of the film you talked about in the beginning?

RE: Invisible Aliens

Rule 1 of Horror Movies is "Don't Show the Monsters" - what's wrong with "Can't show the Monsters"? - did you want another Signs?

The first film you mentioned, reminded me of this :)

And Final Destination? The same with Saw, liked the first one, hated the rest.

Wow,invisible aliens?

invisible aliens...

Invisiens aint that bad an idea y'know.. If done right..

That is some impressive acting in that first film...

In regard to that film Darkest Hour, I'm sure the scene with them against the invisible aliens will be much more convincing than the likes like that Z rated film Birdemic (look up at the scene when they fend off against the poorly animated birds).
As for Final Destination I lost interest when I watch the third film despite when my mate told me to check out the forth film. Yeah I will give it a miss since there are a few films I still got to check out.

I'm just going to leave this here. :)

You HAD to mention The Darkest Hour? Blog about it, yes. But, dude, seriously ... Why are you bashing it ON VIDEO? I mean, come on. It's 2011 and you still care about this sort of thing?

Anyhoo, Final Destination 5. One was great. Two was SPLAT-tastic and the rest just sucked. So I'm not expecting much of this one

I know this will probably be terrible but I'll admit I'm a fan of the Final Destination series and I've seen the others so I'm almost difinately going to see this.

Pretty much what I expected from yet another Final Destination movie, so thanks for the review so that I don't have to go spend money to see it. As far as the Darkest Hour thing goes, the only thing I could think about seeing those invisible alien effects (spinning air pockets, etc) was "Why can't they use these special effects and make a S.T.A.L.K.E.R movie instead?" It's still Russian and would probably be more interesting.

try Enemy Zero before you get all up in it about the invisible aliens. looking at the preview, it's unlikely that they would make it work that well, but it's still possible to make it work.

The Darkest Hour. That just made my Friday.

The funny thing is that they do show the monsters; we're simply seeing through them. Which in that regard makes it even worse than showing a badly designed monster.

Kinda reminds me of that South Park episode where everyone's running away in terror from global warming.

In reference to the invisible aliens, I was actually more intrigued/impressed. I wanna see how they execute that idea.

Back to Final Destination: I completely skipped out on "THE Final Destionation" (part 4), but I have a strange feeling I might go ahead and watch this one. First one was awesome, second was alright, third was some what forgettable, and the fourth? Like I said, never saw it.

I'm gonna admit it and say I'm curious as to how they die.

I just flashback to the "Cave Dwellers" episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000:

ATAR (onscreen): They're invisible!
TOM SERVO: Oh, come on, they couldn't even afford to hire villains!?
CROWBOT: Hey you, pick on someone of your own opacity!

The invisible aliens movie might not be bad afterall. Best horrors indeed are the ones, where you don't know what/who the the monsters is. Final Destination is a bit meh of a movie. The last one I saw in 3D wasn't actually that impressive, so I might pass on this one.

invisible aliens...

OT: Haven't seen any of the movies and won't start now. I did see all of the death scenes on one of the Daily Whats and that to me seems to be the main part of seeing any of the movies.

I'll have to see that first movie now just to see how they executed the idea of invisible aliens.

Darkest Hour looks like it could be cool, I like the idea of invisible aliens lots of cheap suspense moments to be had there. If for Final Destination I've enjoyed them, they don't seem to get better but they don't get worse either, and always deliver on there promise, Rub Goldberg style deaths.

Funny how more people are talking about the trailer for a movie talked about for one minute than the actual movie reviewed. I'd like to think that this is a sign on just how little people actually care about the Final Destination films anymore. Still, I might give this one a rent when it comes to DVD.

I'm a little curious regarding the Anne Hathaway photo that seems to be angering people, were we ever really promised Catwoman? The last thing I heard was the casting announcement, which very specifically said Bane and Selina Kyle. I figured that either she wouldn't take on the Catwoman identity (or at least not the name and costume), or if she did it wouldn't look like we're used to. Given the nature of Christopher Nolan's Batman movies, that seemed like the logical conclusion to draw. Has anything happened or been said since then that led us to believe anything else?

darkest hour sounds alright. i think i will give this one a shot. invisible aliens sounds alright if you ask me.
for final destination. maybe i watch it if i have nothing better to do. watched recently part 4 by renting the dvd. pretty much like all the other 3 of them. i do like part 1+2 though. they are alright wile part 3 was rather meh. part 4 was also meh but i can say that i have seen worse.

I can't seem to view the video. Weird.

Invisible Aliens as a threat is a genius idea for a low budget movie. As always, how good it ends up depends of the execution.

Actually invisible aliens could actually work. After all, monsters become that much more frightening the less you see of them, so imagine a monster that you can't fucking see at all.

I've only seen the 2nd FD flick, but that one was damn fun. It has perhaps the best car crash scene ever presented.

The fourth one is decent, joining the ranks of 1 and 2 but yeah, the third one kinda sucked.

I was honestly expecting him to bash this one. After the massive failures of 3 and 4, I thought it would be hard finding an honest review of this. Glad to see I was wrong.

hermes200:

Yeah but those ones weren't actually invisible. They were very very orange.

Also, how does Tony Todd manage to never age? It's disconcerting.

I heard that, that scene was one of the most expensive scenes/car crashes ever, at least at the time.(Don't know if its ture) Its very impressive to watch, the log into the police car is just baddass.

I'm actually surprised this one GOT a critic review...

So... if you want to see something this weekend that doesn't suck... go watch "30 minutes or less" instead...

I saw the midnight release for it, and had to admit that it was really, pretty damn good. The acting was surprising solid on all parts, the story is actually almost believable, and it's funny while not being completely ridiculous, and most important of all... it's fun.

The "Are you f***ing kidding me" during the prologue can be replied exactly the same.

There is a movie set in Russia, with invisible aliens who are more dangerous by day than by night, and have to be avoided/defeated through makeshift means, and that is a BAD THING?!?

Riiiight, because we need more movies like Battle:Los Angeles
