new WB film
stars Halle Berry, Penelope Cruz, and Robrt Downey Jr.
site and trailer here:
Penelope Cruz kinda ruins it for me. Really do not like her.
But the story sounds cool and I do like Halle so going to see it
It will be another stupid psychological thriller relying on some kinda "twist" ending that anyone with a brain will be able to predict, as is the norm with thrillers today.
I like those types of thrillers. Well not the predictable part. Just the psychological thrillers with a paranormal thing.
Has to be better then The Gift
well thats not difficult
I'm just sick of movies relying soley on their endings to get attention. They all do it now, and they are all either completely predictable, or else so off the wall and irrelevent to the rest of the movie that they ruin themselves.
Maybe this wont be
it doesnt seem like its just the end that will make it good
from the trailer..
she is some clever person. one night she sees a dead girl on the road. she ends up in a mental home. it appears she killed her husband.
Where can I see the trailer? Got a link?
This movie was done fast, a little while ago news that Halle had broken her arm doing it hit the web.
link to the site is up there ^^
The ending will be something ridiculous, like she really is that girl she almost hit on the road and her doctor persona was all just in her imagination, and penelope cruz will be her long lost mother, but the twist will be that she is really berries father who had a sex change or something like that.
Cant be that bad mate.
Seen fight club?
thou they hint to that the whole movie.
But it was kinda stupid, specially when he shots himself
They probably just threw in the hints at the last minute to make the movie make at least a little bit of sense.
Too many movies try to blow the audience away by throwing in an ending that is so ridiculous that it is shocking, I just can't believe people still fall for it.
If you want a good, shocking, relevent ending; watch Se7en
I kinda saw that one coming.
I just dont like the dark mood seven has. It wasnt necessary.
But great movie.
But I dont know if a movie has a twist when I go see it.
Se7en and Fight Club are great!
the dark mood was completely neccessary, it only emphasized the already overwhelming atmosphere and message, that the world is horrible.
We better get back on topic
Thats the point. I just dont see it like that.
Freemans character feeling that way is understandable but they didnt need to show it like that. Its like that city was in some 3rd world country.
But topic topic
i think thats quite relevant
gothica is going to suck, halle barry is in it. It can't be good.
I dislike anyone who is as over rated like she is.
I am over-rated
Who Halle? Never seen Monsters ball...she's been around for a bit thou.
Hey mate havent seen you in a while
yeah, halle isn't a horrible actress by anymeans. But she should not have won that oscar. She just won because she's black, and that year the oscars were very african american friendly.
Ola back!!...I have been on a mini vacation...my friends got married and I was in the wedding party
Yes I agree on that. Denzel did not deserve that oscar either. I'm not saying he wasnt good. I'm just saying Dr.Dre (who's in the movie) would have done just as well or better.
nah, denzel was great in a villian role for a change. But i don't think he shoulda won either.
Already of topic.
I have a knack for doing that don't I....
But maybe denzel will make a guest appearence in gothica, thus making talk about him in this thread completely relevent and keeping it on topic.
Maybe he'll be halle's retarded brother who has super natural powers and is causing her helucinations of that girl
nah...that would be too..."predictable"
anyways, doing your job for ya.
Back on topic people!
Also, for any more info on gothica check out www.imdb.com
i didnt really like Penelope Cruz in Blow, but Depp was great
Gothika was actually a pretty good movie. You're all right, there was a twist, but I liked it a lot. Maybe you should give it a try.
P.S. Yes. They could have casted someone better for the part of Chloe.
ON A SCALE OF 1-10 HOW WAS IT
It was a good movie, not gonna dedicate my life to it or nothin'. but I liked it. A lil' bit through the movie ya already knew the reason why what was happin' to Halle Berry was happenin'. I give it a 6 outta 10
Cool Gothika looked really good.. i didn't know it was out yet but I gotta c it
was it scary? it looked odd
Well the cridicts say that it was terrible acting, halle berry yells and screems in the movie more than she does anything else, if i were to grade it, id give it a c- for effort. Or 2 stars out of 10... i highley doubt that i'll ever pay to see this movie unless i can watch it for free.
I saw it today as a first date with my new gf, I must say I wish we had decided on a better movie for our first date, it was tired, boring and pretty typical, the ending was nothing more then generic. It wasn't terrible, but it's the type of movie you'll forget that you saw in a month.
Is Gothika good?! It looks a little weird...
It's typical, the type of movie you'll forget about shortly after viewing, it doesn't really do anything special, unique or memorable.
it's a paranormal movie like sixth sense but sixth sense is much better. the plot is implausible. it's NOT theater-worthy but definitely DVD-worthy.
just watched gothika n it doesn't make sense
1. how the hell did grey get away with killing her husband? she DID do it. i don't think the jury will buy that she was possessed and the movie suggested that the insanity plea is out of the question
2. how can she be admitted to the same mental ward she was working in? wouldn't that be a violation of some kind like they don't put convicted policemen in the prison general population?
i know it's a movie but it bugs me when movies don't make sense.
They addressed your second complaint...they said she was there temporarily, but they are going to try to find a loophole in the rules so that she could stay there.
has any1 hered of a scary lookin movie called gothica???
oooooo i have 2 c it
who else wants 2 c it????
I saw it
I like it
Scary is an over statement. The name has absolutely nothing to do with the movie, which is just a really bad, not scary mix of "Silence of the Lambs" and "The Sixth Sense".
Yes, the trailers I've seen so far makes me want to see it too.
Its ment 2 b about a doctor who wakes up 2 find herself being a paitient at her own hospital. Some mental hospital or somthing It looks really good
spikes baby gal
I saw it and the ending is wierd and I can ashure you it is anything but predictable. and the way the girl looks is so frikin scary And she shaws up every were that night I didn't go to sleep thinkin she was gona attack me in my sleep so yah It was like a horror
I didnt find it scary
I think its not as bad as ppl say (most ppl) but it has lots of plot wholes
and it's weak. 1 or 2 cool scenes.
If you didn't know that fatass security guard was the "bad guy" from the beginning, I don't know what to tell you.
The movie is borderline intolerable.
grrrrrrrrrrr i live in australia and it hasn't come out here yet!!!!
so the "fatass security guard" is the baddie eh???
Oops...kinda ruins things even more for you knowing that!
Oh Im going to see this tomorrow. I think it will be an ok film. Im not a huge fan of Penelope Cruz, however, Robert Downey Jr. is in the movie, and I like him, so...we'll see how it goes.
how's like ghotika???
i'ts really really scared and horibble
Well you spelled the name of this thread(Gothika) and Stephen King's thread wrong, but oh well its okay.
I havent seen Gothika b4 but i heard it was really good and had a shocking ending. I wanna see it
Pass on it. It's predictible, and most of the time doesn't make any sense. It has a bunch of "scary visuals" to make up for a lack of story.
Oh!?! News to me
spikes baby gal
IT WAS A AWSOME MOVIE AND IT WAS NOT PREDICTABLE SO IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT GOOD FOR YOU EVERYONE YOU SHOULD DEFINATLY SEE IT!!!!!!
lol well everyone has different oipinions on everything hahah.
I loved this movie, it was a good thriller,and kept me guessing through the whole thing, for those of you who don't like it, omg , you are seriously defected.
1 word for this movie "shitty"
I didn't particularly care for it. The only reason I even remember it was because it's the first movie I saw with my GF on our first date.
It was nice movie with plenty of atmosphere, but the story was very predictable and the ending quite dumb. She killed people so why didn't she go to jail? Very Hollywood ending unfortunately.
I'll rent it again, thankfully it's only $1, and I'll be back with one of my signature brutal reviews, and it will probably set everyone straight.
I agree with C-addiction and Backfire.............pass on it. A very lackluster horror film. The entire movie was predictable....extremely predictable. The only thing the movie did sucessfully was to create a dark atmosphere. The ending was a bit anti-climactic. This movie makes 13 Ghosts look like the Shining.
It was good . Quite predictable but like Evil Dead said, it successfully created a dark atmosphere.
It was predictable, within the first 30 min, i had already figured out the entire movie
nah i wanna no more bput gothika
i don't no when it comes out here yet
I saw it and liked it a lot
Although I had predicted the erm... "bad guys", if not from the very beginning, at least during the middle.
pirate girly thank you for the spelling
and thank you for the post
The movie was the beat I've seen in years
I've only seen the movie once and I thought it was flawless...Could you please explain what you meant by the film having "lots of plot holes"? And where did they occur?
oh really i'ts scared? or not? can you tell us???
i'm scared lol
Well first of all yeah you spelled the name of the movie wrong and second of all this movie does suck. The only thing good about it is Halle Berry
Dark Lotus? Best movie you have seen in years??? Oh i see your sig, you must have just been watching the Matrix trilogy over and over, Then yes Gothika will probably be the best movie you have ever seen!!! BOO Halle Why????
If you look at his post closely you will see he said it was the BEAT movie he had seen in years, not the BEST! That makes more sense to me.
What? Beat Takeshi. He wasn't in "Gothika", silly rabbit! He was in "Battle Royale" however.
Ok She kills her husband and is sent to a psychiatric ward/prison...whatever. The one she worked at?! No way! With ppl she treated?! Hell no! After they find out whats going on, that her husband and the cop abducted and rapped several women she is sent free?! What???She killed!!! Satisfied?
I'm sorry Backfire . . . but everytime I read your comments about these horror movies you find some why to trash it somehow. I'm getting kinda tired of it. I don't want to start a whole argument so you don't have to respond.
borring, slow , predictable and retarded
yeah i already new most of that Kes!
oh well i serch the net alot!!!......as u can clearly tell
Yep, not my fault they suck.
Leather just consider Backfire a critical critique.. soo when you are in the mood to watch an exceptional, true to the horror gene movie.. rest assured his recommendations went through many filters ...
dont get mad (:
Look the Matrix is gay as ****ing hell the only reason I have a Matrix sig of the twins is they kickass thats all my movie is All the Alines and Predators movies ok
Iam the one that got DaRk Lotus in this leave this ******* to me ok so back off and for you DaRk Lotus you shoud have stayed in the music fourms and let me be in this forums!! now you will pay for this
I was a little disappointed in this movie
I do think that Penelope Cruz did a great job
really knows how to play a psycho
Halle Berry should never have her hair long
All in all it wasn't scary, but it was alright
The part with the husband was a little grotesque, like on the stairs
Oh and Robert D Jr. was great too, looked good too
I absolutely loved this film. It kept me guessing,and on the edge of my seat. I really enjoyed it.
hey gys please post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just watched it last night. 8/10 excellent. Scared me at points.
Don't tell me that thing scared you man, shit predator has a better scare factor, anyway I agree with BF on this one, a movie thats easily forgotten, nutn special
I thought it was funny
I'm not going to bother seeing this then
I only recently got to see Gothika on HBO and I really liked it. Admittedly I had pretty much figured out the ending before they got to it. I still liked all the suspense and eeriness about the movie. Fact is I would like to get the DVD for all the extra stuff. Halle was really great in the movie and Penelope was very intense. I have recommended this movie to all my friends.gathering clapping
very easily forgotten IMO
Halle Berry is an awful actress IMO
maybe she should start doing porn or something which is about her level of acting. and, lets face i would be a fan then
