One of the best movies ever made

To be honest, I'm usually not really a fan of psychopath/serial killer movies. I mean, they are most of the time entertaining but they are never really great, at least, that’s my opinion but this movie is the exception. Indeed, I thought was so thoughtful , complex and really spellbinding to watch. I saw it again not so long ago and once again, it completely blew my mind. One thing I found real... read more

Michael Haneke once stated that the intention behind 'Funny Games' was that, if you couldn't watch it all the way through, then you didn't need to.

I'm not sure about that. I don't think I like the idea that a film director knows better than I do what I need to watch, or what I don't need to watch. I did watch 'Funny Games' all the way through, and it's a movie about two guys who to... read more

Disturbing and thought provoking

Michael Haneke's original and disturbing horror film about two young men who terrorize a family on vacation is a must see. One of a few really disturbing horror films that pulls no punches. The film also makes you think about you role as watcher of the events by involving you more directly with the film at various points. A great movie that disturbs and makes you think, a very smart horror film.

Irritating and Unwatchable.

“Let me be honest here, i'm not familiar with the director, but if this is what he usually do? then i will never watch another movie of him.

The story goes like this: two guys enters a family vacations home, kill their dog, kick the father on the leg, so he can't walk and start asking some stupid question just to irritate the viewer, the two guys look very normal and polite, they use proper language and ask nicely which makes it really irritating to watch as you set just angry and annoyed the entire time.

When the kid escape, you start hoping that this is going to end nicely like most movies, but then the director kills your hope when the ” read more

Moviewatcher122's 2014 Film Diary: July (37 movies items)

"July 4 I didn't think it was possible, but this movie tops Fast Times at Ridgemont High as the most overrated movie of all time. The first 30 minutes is nothing happening besides talking which wouldn't be a problem if the dialogue wasn't so awful and the fact that no one in this movie can act except for one actor, but even he can't save this movie. It tries so hard to be disturbing, but it's not because the characters are so unlikeable. I really can't believe the praise this film gets because i"

Film Review of Funny Games (1997)

“Two ostensibly harmless young men, after kindly requesting some eggs, forcefully invade the holiday house of a wealthy family, and proceed to hold them captive, whilst engaging them in cruelly sadistic games based on the struggle between life and death.

The original Austrian version of Funny Games was made in 1997 and was met with varied - though mostly negative - reviews from critics upon release. However, a shot-for-shot American English-language remake of the film emerged in 2007. The director, well-known Austrian auteur Michael Haneke, remade the film for the purposes of introducing it to a wider Western audience. This is a rare gem of a film that although is deeply disturbing and polarizing, is also incredibly intelligent, challenging, insightful, and thought-provoking.
