Halloween (2018). No spoilers.

Personally, I found it a waste of time but had a great soundtrack.

Stumbled upon The Unknown Soldier (2017 film) while looking at links in the Viking metal thread. DVD comes out in a few days time, the seven minute clip I watched looked great.

For a long time I had only watched the first one of the Blind Dead movies, which I liked quite a bit. I've watched the rest recently and wasn't worth it, really. A couple of good scenes and a shitload of padding in all of them, except for Ghost Ship which doesn't even have the good stuff. Those movies work way better as posters.


Think you mentioned this before and I agreed then, and I agree again now.

I watched A Prayer before dawn. Pretty good, almost , experiential style film about a British heroin-addicted, Muay Thai boxer who gets sent to prison in Thailand. Fuck that. Based on a true story too apparently.
It felt almost like a documentary. A lot of ex-prisoners were cast and I liked the fact that the subtitles were fairly minimal. It all added to the isolating experience that William Moore must have felt.

The fight scenes were pretty visceral and brutal too.

Re-watched The Thing (1982) for the first time in almost 6 years, just amazing movie, for all these years I always loved to keep repeating the scenes over and over again to see how they were done, incredible special effects, even although I really, really hate when animals are killed in movies.



Anyone knows if the CGI fest that is the 2011 prequel any good? I saw various scenes of it on YT but currently I am not interested in it.

Dangit, and I am probably going to watch it today, I never watched any of the Halloween movies except for the first one and the two remakes from Rob.

Just like I thought. No future for movies.

Is that the one with Mads Mikkelson, who barely talks at all during the film?

it’s ok. not a patch on the Carpenter version, but still ok.
But then again, I really only watched it for MEW.

the 2011 The Thing is a pretty good movie.they took a lot of care to make sure the scenes from the 1st one where they go check out the lab synch up. We see WHY there is an ax in the wall and the thing outside, etc. It would have been a better movie head have been a better movie had the studio let him keep in the practical effects they did for the movie instead of covering it up with cgi. Including the ending.

Halloween (2018) is good too. A lot of fun. I can tell there was some deleted scenes that may have helped a little with the development of the story. But maybe that was for run time reasons so they wouldn't get a Rob Zombie 2 and a half hour movie comparison. But nothing outlandish. Go see it. Have fun. It's a monster financial and critical success for a reason. And being a lifelong horror buff, I was skeptical at first too.

Myself being a long time horror hound found it very disappointing. Sure, the easter egg nods to all of the films were cool and it is basically Halloween II, just done 40 years later, but it fell into the same trap all the modern horror movies fall into, jump scares, stupid jokes and predictable storylines. For the love of fuck, a comedy director took on this thing and Danny McBride helped write it. I'll stick with Halloween - Season of the Witch, and it ends there. Just my take.

The 2011 Thing is so fucking unnecessary, a sequel would've been better and made more sense if they wanted to milk the fame of the first one. What's the fucking point of "knowing" what happened to the Norwegians, when the whole point of the scenes in their camp in the first movie is to work as premonition of what unfolds in the whole second half of the film? By the time the movie ends, we already know what happened there, we don't need a whole movie to explain it since it's already been explained. We know why there's an axe in the door, we even saw Wilford Brimley's character use one against the rest of the crew.
Going on about it in detail is pretty much like explaining a joke, it's just pointless. There are worse movies out there, but no matter how well made this one could've been, it was always going to be worthless and forgettable. I still don't understand why would they choose to do a prequel when a sequel would've made more sense, even from a franchise expanding point of view.
And it's not like there were many prequels that ever worked. I can't think of any right now, except if you wanted to count Godfather II as a prequel of sorts.

I heard that the 2002 Thing video game is a direct sequel to the 1982 movie, had Carpenter behind it, and was very postively reviewed, something rare for a game based on a film, I might look it up but for the storyline aspect but hell, video games are just not for me, I might just look at gameplays of it, rather than play it directly.



Edit, and I forgot that the new Halloween will not be available in here until 25th, but I will definitely watch it as soon as it releases.

But this is not a "Cannibal Holocaust" - I mean no dogs were harmed during the filming, if I am not mistaken. Or do you mean that you dislike even if animal character (not a creature itself) is killed on screen?
