New Review Movies! – 10-11-2010
Hi there. I have a few new movies to review and I was thinking after my last post that it might be better for all to make more posts with less movies (minimum 3, maximum 5) that way it is easier to post and hopefully easier to read. I have 2 Blu-rays and 1 DVD to post today.
The Human Centipede (Blu-ray) – The plot is diabolically simple: two stranded American tourists are given shelter by a famed German doctor (a maniacally intense Dieter Laser) who made his fortune surgically seperating conjoined twins. Now his mad genius is pushing the doctor to do the reverse. He tells the women that they will be surgically attached to a Japanese businessman -mouth to buttocks, one after the other – and thus will be born a new creature: the human centipede! Compellingly perverse, hilarious, and shockingly straightforward, director Tom Six’s new film is hands-down one of the most memorable horror films ever.

The Oxford Murders (Blu-ray) – A woman is murdered in Oxford. Her body is discovered by two men, Arthur Seldom (John Hurt), a prestigious professor of logic, and Martin (Elijah Wood), a young graduate student who has just arrived at the university hoping to study with Seldom. It quickly becomes clear that this is the first in a series of murders, all of which are announced by the murderer with strange mathematical symbols. Professor and student join forces to try and crack the code, and thus begins an elaborate puzzle, in which nothing is as it seems and the truth is elusive.
Forbidden Lies (DVD) – Norma Khouri is a thief, a saint, a seductress and a sociopath – depending on who is talking. Khouri won fame and fortune with her “true story” Forbidden Love, about a shocking honor killing in Jordan. The book was a runaway bestseller, translated into multiple languages and became the toast of the literary world. Until July 2004, when esteemed Sydney Morning Herald journalist Maclcom Knox exposed her book as a work of fiction and her protagonist a figment of her imagination. Now, Norma is fighting for her credibility and offers to go to Jordan to prove that Dahlia indeed existed and that the incident in question really took place. “You’re not going to get one version of the truth, ever,” she says with a straight face. Is her story fact or fiction? You decide…
