Fright Night
Tremors
The Blair Witch Project


Whoever did the special effects for Tremors deserves massive credit.

How was it?
I seen a few ads in the horror rags... but when reading the content I had my doubts how much it would really interest me.

I didnt mind it. I thought the third act was decent, despite a lot of criticism for it. There was some typically bad M. Knight Marshmallowman dialogue, and some dubious decisions by main and secondary characters, but overall, I liked the contrast to the superhero films of late. As for the production, it was well- stylized, but at a minimum to keep it "realistic" so to speak. 7/10


Well put.
I DL'd this via torrent out of boredom and because I really like the actor James McAvoy. He is a tyrant. Split was awful aside from his acting and the music and that hot piece of ass Anya Taylor Joy. I think this movie saved Split from being a failure. It was clever and better than more recent M.Nacht Sham-Alien flicks which are usually hit or miss. I dislike Sam Jackson's acting. He has zero range and is very one dimensional. Same with Sarah Paulson. She's AWFUL. BUT.. the movie was interesting and it never stopped so overall it was a success. I love the weaving of the characters previous "theme songs" into the background too. The song "Kevin Wendell Crumb" is SO harrowing.

Re-watched The Devil's Rain last night. Absolutely classic. Satanic and killer setting. Recommended.


After all that rant on one dimensional acting capabilities you then cite The Devils Reign with WILLIAM SHATNER as a 'highly recommended' hahahaha ...you really are one of the NWN glue sniffers. Good devilish movie but seriously maybe talk about it a few posts after discussing how stiff and one dimensional some other actors are Laughing

I dont know. I liked Split, a lot. But I agree with your biff with Sams acting. Hes had a few decent roles,but he cant escape the Jules shadow from Pulp fiction. And yeah, Sarah Paulson is woeful. Shes dead weight in every scene of every movie shes in. She has this uncanny ability to suck the life out of the scene.
I always thought she was the creepy boy/girl from Sleepaway Camp Laughing

I finally watched Annihilation. Not the Mortal Kombat one, the Natalie Portman one from last year. In Annihilation, the rejected 2016 Ghostbusters embark on a wild adventure in the land of Far Cry New Dawn...?

A biologist woman's soldier husband returns home in weird/bad shape after having been missing for a year. Turns out he was sent on a mission to explore a mysterious place called The Shimmer, which appeared around a meteorite crash site. Anyone who enters this place never returns, until now, that is. So of course keep sending people in. You can stop facepalming now, Vaas from Far Cry 3, as The Shimmer has yet to offer any results apart from missing people. Mostly they've sent soldiers, but are now preparing to go in with a research group. They've (whoever runs this operation in the large scale or its staff) concluded that whoever goes in gets killed by something or for whatever reason they kill each other. A little binary don't you think? What if they're trapped somewhere? What if they decided to settle? It seems like a suicide mission anyway so let's go in with a high ranking leader lady and three specialists or whatever these chicks are. It's almost like they want to not be heard from again.

The Shimmer's origin is pretty self-explanatory. What it does is also at least superficially explained. But it's nice to see certain things were just left unknown, so they don't attempt to dissect why people experience memory loss and irregular passage of time. It's a mysterious place and knowing too much would quickly work against the movie. Of course The Shimmer's ability to mutate life into something else is figured out by the group in a way that would make Mulder proud. The Shimmer paints its surroundings often times in rainbow colours and considering how the researchers are all women too, you'd only need to change a couple of consonants to get The Glitter. Sometimes it's a pretty harsh territory however and the exploration starts to turn into a self fulfilling prophecy after a kind of bear snatches one of the group members and kills her.

Also, this movie has some of the most ineffective automatic weapons I've seen. Like when they're spraying the shit out of the alligator, it's almost as if they're missing 90% of the shots from point blank range. Women may be ill-equipped to handle firearms and suffer a gender penalty in accuracy, but this is stormtrooper level shit.

So I don't particularly like this bottom heavy dyke Anya "hardly nordic" Thorensen who can't keep herself together and turns on her own. Remember Vasguez? She was a warrior. This obligatory minority defect is a warrior of the social justice variety if anything. Hey Thorensen, have you ever been mistaken for a man? All the time? You identify as one too? Well then. Maybe act like one. For instance, when the group finds out what happened to the soldiers who came before them after examining gruesome video footage, Anya's reaction is not far from the "NOO NOO LAA LAA LAA CAN'T HEAR YOU NOT GONNA BELIEVE" denial frenzy of feminists who shut out any information that does not conform to their romanticised worldview. Good job choosing the right people for this expedition.

Luckily discount Vasguez gets what she deserves in The Bear Scene. I liked The Bear Scene! It involves a mutated bear that makes the sounds of the person it killed, which is slightly disturbing and a little awesome. All of a sudden weapons work the way they're supposed to as well. RIP Anya Thorensen, may he rest in peace.

Wait there were five members in the group. I can't count women.

The ending is pure psychedelia as visuals take over and words are not spoken for a good while. Seems like Annihilation is mostly a metaphor for something. Things like our self-destructive ways are brought up more than a few times, which in these times are quite true. The Shimmer corrupts people from within and changes them into something else as it did with her husband, but Portman states that it does not necessarily mean in a bad way. Similarly, we watch idly by as our entire nations are invaded and corrupted from within by an alien force, changing into something else as the old gives way for the archaic new. Is the change for the better? Is cancer not that bad after all? Ask your local mosque.

I'll give it 14 out of 88. But it's still good.

The Legend of Cocaine Island. [Netflix]

Dug this one a lot, maybe moreso the direction, the production value was movie like throughout and done well. Nice double reveal at the end.

Captain Marvel. Yep they shoehorned another movie in. Putting just the right pieces to make it fit. Oh, that's where the tesseract came from. Still better than any of the DC movies post Nolan trilogy. Those are dogshit.

Holmes and Watson - As I loved "Step Brothers" and thought "Talladega Nights" was pretty good I had high expectations from this. Expectations shattered, this is possibly the worst "comedy" ever. The shit made Pauly Shore and Rob Schneider movies seem funny if that says anything.

Stan and Ollie - This biopic of Laurel and Hardy restored my faith in the abilities of John C Reilly after the pondscum that was "Holmes and Watson." Great acting all around, a super touching film suitable for family viewing.

I assume you are referring to Jacobs Ladder and not my comment on the review? I have always liked that movie very much. Great watch and still gave me more than a few chills. Some stuff in there are even better now when I have aged a bit and see some things a bit differently.
