The Spotless Mind

Musings of a Non-Film Reviewer. I pay, I watch, I comment.


Foreign – 2001

BANGKOK HAUNTED (Oxide Pang, Pisut Praesangeam, 2001)


Three ghost stories, none scary. Like a really bad Shake Rattle & Roll movie.

Rating: 1/5


TRAINING DAY (Antoine Fuqua, 2001)


Politics aside, I still couldn’t believe Denzel Washington won an Oscar for this one-note character. Even worse, he beat the excellent performance of Russell Crowe in A Beautiful Mind.

I didn’t expect much from an Antoine Fuqua movie except graphic violence and that one got covered. I felt very much like Ethan Hawke’s character experiencing the worst ride-along ever.

Like any typical day, nothing was completely memorable except for Eva Mendes’ full frontal nudity and a horrendous bit by Macy Gray (probably playing herself).

Rating: 2/5
