A delightful look at an underrated character

Posted : 3 years, 4 months ago on 17 February 2015 02:31 (A review of I Am Nancy)

Whilst its low budget is evident, there is a lot of heart and effort put into this beautifully made documentary. Heather Langenkamp, the actress who played Nancy Thompson in 'A Nightmare on Elm Street', explores the fandom of the character, which, of course, pales in comparison to the film's famous antagonist, Freddy Krueger. Langenkamp, and director Arlene Marechal, pose the question why doesn't Nancy have the same popularity as her arch nemesis? However, there are Nancy fans out there, and Langenkamp hears from them of their personal feelings towards the character and what she means to them.

Nancy is a special kind of slasher protagonist. Continuing on from what Laurie Strode started in 'Halloween', Nancy is not a "sexualised virgin", but a level-headed, smart teenager who would rather face her fears than run away from them. The character has inspired many, and Langenkamp exposes the character's importance in not only horror cinema, but in the lives of her fans.

Interviews with 'Nightmare' director Wes Craven, and Robert Englund (the actor who played Freddy Krueger) also give insightful analyses of Nancy. Craven, the creator explains Nancy's origins, whilst Englund opines on her relationship with his character, Freddy.

As a fan of Nancy myself, I really enjoyed this documentary. Langenkamp isn't so much a star, but a down-to-earth woman whose uplifting spirit is contagious. Her positive demeanor and her obvious appreciation for her fans make for a feel-good experience.

3/5

Horrible Bosses review

Posted : 6 years, 11 months ago on 18 August 2011 08:09 (A review of Horrible Bosses)

This movie is not to be taken seriously at all. There are no morals. This is amoral. People will be offended by the intentions and behaviour shown in this film. I loved it. Political correctness takes a backseat as we watch three men who hate their horrible bosses and so plot to murder them. I'm happy to put political correctness aside and laugh along as Charlie Day, Jason Bateman and Jason Sudeikis create ridiculous situations and perform their schtick. This hilarious comedy was consistently funny. It was non-stop laughter throughout. This can be attributed to the ridiculous, far-fetched plot and terrific performances by the entire cast. The three leads share real chemistry and work well off each other with their hilarious banter. The three bosses are brilliant. There's the slave driving psycho played by Kevin Spacey, the sleezy tool played by Colin Farrell and the sex crazy maneater played by Jennifer Aniston. It's Aniston whom gets the most laughs, playing against type using fouth language and playing a really slutty role for laughs. Not only is she sexy, she's reminds everyone what a great comedienne she is. With this performance, and Kristen Wiig's role in 'Bridesmaids' earlier in the year, 2011 has proven to be a triumph for female comedy.... Although don't get me wrong, this is definitely a 'guy' movie and Aniston's role is directed at a male audience. People will be offended. I was not.
