25th November 2008 - Well I'll start my first ever blog here with a review of the DVD 'Postal' I watched last night with my flat mates. Now this is a movie that's been out for a couple of years and I have heard about it through the grapevine but I never thought I would actually see it. Why? Because its written and directed by Uwe Boll, Mr B-Grade himself.
Postal movie review
Now this man is known for making many, and I mean many, bad films based on computer games. This film though was meant to be a piss take of American culture and a general satire. So when my flat mate brought it home I was like 'Ohh well, I'll give it a go'. I haven't seen any of his films before as I've just been told that they are pretty bad so I trusted those words and now I see why I trusted them for so long. This film clearly wasn't really any different then his other bad films...but...it did have its good moments. It had some pretty funny parts along the lines of classic films like Naked Gun and Hot Shots and those good parts did hold up well and were pretty funny. Other then those it was down hill from there and the rest was filled with bad jokes.

The film was by far to long and could have done with at least 15 minutes cut out and that could easily have come from tightening up the editing as some scenes dragged on with dead space. Then there was some pretty bad acting and some strange directing choices on top of that. I even got up at one stage and walked out of the room to grab something, which I never do, so clearly it wasn't holding my attention.

So that was Postal and to be honest I don't really want to waste more of my time reviewing a film that was pretty bad all round. 3/10 for me, but for a smaller film that's not to bad as it was about as funny as 'Meet the Spartans', which would have had a much bigger budget.
