I last watched the Horror driven War film Overlord. Most people i've seen comment on it seem to have enjoyed it so i'll probably receive a lot of hate for this but I actually thought it was completely generic and I wouldn't go out of my way to see it again.

I felt all the monster scenes were completely outclassed by films with a similar premise like Re-Animator.


I'm with you. It was a fairly entertaining one-time watch, but I too was reminded of Re-Animator, which is something I could re-watch constantly. Even the wartime setting was reminiscent of one of the chapters of the original serialized story (as well as the opening of Bride of Re-Animator).

Suspiria (2018)

Hey guys I last watched the remake of Suspiria.

I don't know what the general consensus is but I actually thought this was quite good.

They made a pretty interesting decision here since the original Suspiria is pretty well known for Dario Argento's color palette and with this movie they decided to go with a stripped down color style. Probably a good decision in hindsight since any attempt to imitate the original cinematography might have come off as a second best imitation.

Anyway they still manage to do a great job of having fairly shocking and gripping horror scenes and the movie stands on it's own quite well from the original.

They done quite well to shoot the architecture of the dance company in a monolithic and gothic manner.

I would say this and Werner Herzog's Nosferatu The Vampyre are my favorite horror remakes.

Instant Family - Wow, a movie with Mark Walhburg that I actually liked. It's got a good message that wasn't overly cheeky, and heartwarming characters. Going into it I thought it would be a straight up comedy, but it's not and was better than I expected. 7/10.

Angel Town, this was a very fun film. I shouldn't be surprised by the fact that there is always going to be some great movies to discover.

The plot is nothing too special, your standard martial arts hero saves a poor neighbourhood from street gang. But the acting is top notch and the action keeps coming strong and fast.

Us.

Jordan Peele's sophomore film after Get Out. It's basically a mix of The Strangers and Body Snatchers and I must say the results are kinda mixed. The first and second act are entertaining, but the third act (especially the final scene) was somewhat sluggish and boring. It's an enjoyable first time viewing, but nothing I would rewatch.

7/10

The Autopsy of Jane Doe( Netflix )

Good stuff. Wish more horror movies were like this. If I'd seen this in a theater, I'd have been happy. Anyone who likes scary movies should check this out...

Watched Terminator 2 for the first time in probably about twenty years.

Yeah, it's every bit as cheesy and half-assed as I remembered, if not more so. There really is only the one worthwhile Terminator movie.

I just watched Finding Nemo while babysitting. Very underwhelming in the shadow of its mountainous praise. I'm just not a fan of the rapid pace that allows for nearly no breathing room, and the amount of convenient coincidences that pile on mercilessly (so a pelican just happens to enjoy dentistry as a spectator sport?). And this might be silly, but I find it disturbing when animals are portrayed with human expressions in cgi animation. It just feels unnatural.

On a slightly related note (Disney and water being the main themes), I saw Moana a short while ago and thought to myself "Wow, I had no clue a movie could be so whitewashed despite there being no white characters."

For some reason I'm relieved to see someone say this. I understand its appeal but when I get right down to it it's a very empty experience that leaves me scratching my head.

Hellraiser:

Extremely good. One of the best horror films of the 80's. Not for the weak-stomached though.

9/10

A true classic.

I quite like Hellbound: Hellraiser II as well (although the older I get, the more strongly I prefer the original).

The Silence. Just watched it on Netflix and it the latest in the "don't make noise" subgenre of horror. I found it to rather dull, and the more I thought about what was happening the more it doesn't make sense that these small pterodactyl looking things causes the world to change over night.

Also, the film has human villain who makes the stupidest face while trying like hell to be threatening. He's pretending to snarl while not making a noise, it is so skreeonking stupid i felt bad for the poor actor. I think that this will perfect riffing material for MST3K or Rifftrax.

Fuller's The Steel Helmet. Great documentation of an often forgotten war. A couple of corny bits and production flaws don't detract from it's raw direction.

Fire In The Sky - That was pretty interesting. Good movie.
A Boy And His Dog - A fun little romp that got really skreeonking weird at the end. It was entertaining, though a little skreeonked with the sexism and all that.
Threads - Holy skreeonk I didn't know what I was getting into when I put this on. I should've researched this movie. See, I'm a huge fan of horror movies and I can handle pretty much everything... But then I put Threads on. I knew the main premise: A realistic look at what a nuclear holocaust would be like. I was interested. I put it on, it's a slow start, and then BAM! Everything just hit the fan. The scene of the bombs going off was skreeonking terrifying and the image of the woman with the melted face will haunt me for a long time. Though my reaction makes it seem like I hated it, it's actually the opposite. It was... definitely an experience. I can't say I loved it or I enjoyed it, because it's definitely not an entertaining movie at all... And I can only imagine what it was like to watch this movie back when it first aired... When the Cold War was still raging on...

I would've posted this the other day, but due to a setback, I had to wait til now.....

Frozen (2013):

After a long time of avoiding this film because of its over saturation, I saw it on Blu-Ray for a cheap price and gave it a look. Overall, unsurprisingly, it was pretty good. The animation is gorgeous, the music is great, and the characters are fun and entertaining. I was thankful that the song that drilled into my head when this film came out didn't bother me this time around. Seeing the build-up to "Let It Go" allowed me to appreciate it more than annoy me. If I had one negative thing to say, it's that Hans was an unneeded villain. In these kind of movies you do need some conflict for the Protagonist to engage in. The problem with Hans is that this film already has the conflict: Elsa's power. With the concern and fear over what Elsa can do and how Anna can help her gave the movie the conflict it needed, making Hans just stick out like a sore thumb. Other than that, this film was as good as people have said it is.

4.5/5

I just finished watching this the other day on Netflix since I'm a huge fan of any and all things zombies, and I must say it's pretty good. It's a little slow and repetitive in spots, but overall, me like.

I'm hoping we get a season 2 that shows the military's perspective.

Pretty entertaining. Didn't know what was going on most of the time though.

I just rewatched the unrated version of Dawn of the Dead (2004) the other day, and it still holds up fairly well to this day. The added story scenes and gore effects made an already pretty good zombie movie that much better. This movie proved that Zack Snyder can and has made good movies, though it still doesn't hold a candle to the original. Then again, nothing touches the original DotD except for maybe Night of the Living Dead, another Romero classic (R.I.P.).

Finally started watching Warrior on Cinemax. A period martial arts/crime drama set in the late 1800s and based on ideas and concepts originally conceived by Bruce Lee. Pretty good so far. Of course being on Cinemax there's a lot of senseless sex and nudity but the main guy is pretty badass and the fights scenes have been pretty good.
