Anything that vaguely resembles John Carpenters The Thing is awesome in my book! (Aside from the prequel...)

You watched it on Netflix didn't you?

Watched a couple of horror movies.

Scream 4

OH LOOKIE HERE HOW WE MAKE FUN OF OURSELVES AND THE PREVIOUS MOVIES BUT WITH A FRESH NEW TWIST WHERE WE ARE BASHING MODERN HORROR MOVIES BUT IRONICALLY BECAUSE THIS MOVIE IS ALSO A MODERN HORROR MOVIE! AREN'T WE WITTY?!

So yeah, didn't like it. Seemed like a horror movie made for hipsters. And what the hell is wrong with Courtney Cox's face? Looks like an emotionless blob of shiny plastic.


John Carpenter's The Ward

Ghosts of Mars was a putrid piece of a turd and I thought Carpenter gave up directing altogether because of how bad it was. Suffice to say, I was very interested to see what made him come out of retirement.

A below average horror movie with a twist, apparently. Couple of nice scares, but you pretty much see every "BOO!" moment coming from miles away. Suprisingly, I didn't guess the twist ending so thats a plus. Worth a watch, but very forgettable. Shame.

THANK YOU. People shit on it because they never really understood that movies about a cyborg cop fighting crime in future Detroit are inherently kind of, you know, goofy and fun as hell. Fuck the third one, though ninja "robots" played by one actor, my ass

Fuck yeah, that movie was so goddamned boring in the second half. I had more fun watching that steaming pile Deepstar Six, for God's sake. Though I LOVED their ingenious plan of getting rid of the water breathing aquatic monster living-mutant-corpse killerbeast by putting it in a body bag and, you know, putting it in the water. AND IT WORKS. awesome

I just rented 2 vids. Limitless and The Conspirator, and as a rare treat I enjoyed both

Limitless was a decent flick about a guy who samples this drug that opens up the human mind to 100% functionality. Everything you ever experienced is now accessable, none of this psychic or telekinesis bullcrap that people think would happen if you had 100% brain use. Just good old fashioned firing on all cylinders. He ends up with the bulk of all that is left of the drug. With his ability to comprehend, intake, and plan enhanced exponentially, he soon becomes a wizard of wall street. But soon others covet the drug and problems arise as his supply dwindles. I liked that the ending was not what I was expecting, but not in a dumb Shamalamadingdong way, in more of a clever way where the obvious ending was not where they went.


The Conspirator is a bit of Historical dramatization of the Mary Surratt trial. An interesting flick, with some decent performances. If you dig historical movies, give it a shot.

In Bruges

I have always disliked Colin Farrell, so thats the main reason I hadn't seen this one. I was bored, so I decided to give it a chance, since i've heard some praise for it.

Holy shit. I just can't believe how awesome it was. It was funny, original and extremely well paced. If you enjoyed Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, you'll propably enjoy this one too.

I watched that not long ago. I've gotta say, the guy is amiable. I grew up with Kevin Smith movies and associate a lot of warm fuzzies with them. Every time I went to his store in Red Bank, Walt Flanagan was at the checkout.

Slate just did an article on him and has some good points, though.

I was born in 77, so Clerks hit right around my junior year of high school.

Red State. As I said previously, lots of warm fuzzies for Kevin Smith but what a fucking mess.

That's the one where he invited the Westboro Baptist Church to the premier of, gave them about 20 tickets, and about 10 minutes into it they all left because it was 'too dirty'. Smith said he wasn't upset that they left, he was upset that they left before they could see his WBC scene

Yeah. Well, I mean I think I caught all of the major themes and most of the minor ones. ("Which is scarier, the religious nutjobs or the government", "People do crazy things for authority figures", "Won't someone please think of the children", etc)

Spoilers!


The special effects were great for the budget he had, but the shakycam. I hate the shakycam so much.

MAKAI TENSHO: SAMURAI REINCARNATION was a major disappointment. i don't know what i was so excited about the trailer isn't particularly good. the movie took itself a bit too seriously for what it was. i like the idea (dead warriors reborn as devils and killing the shogunate), but it was pretty boring.

BLACK MAGIC is pretty great. almost anything that starts with the shaw brothers opening is going to be pretty great, so whatever.

Patrice O'Neal: "Elephant in the Room". One of the funniest comedians I've seen in a while. I hope he recovers from the stroke he had recently.
