Just finished House, haven't seen it in decades. It starts slow but has aged well. In 86 the idea of a hot neighbor dumping their kid on you seemed amusing but now it seems very unamusing, probably because I've raised kids since last seeing this.
I really dislike this reboot of Dawn Of The Dead deb. I bought a copy earlier on in the year to re-vist and to see if my mind would change about it, because there is a lot of love for the film, but I still didn't like it. I got rid of it, just a quick as I bought it.
It really doesn't work in well with me and there is something perfunctory and if you would pardon the pun, dead about it.
Oh. Sorry to hear you were not a fan of it Toasted Cheese. I personally like both the original and the remake but I enjoy the original the most especially the expanded version. As far as remakes go I didn't think it was bad though and was one of the few I enjoyed and I liked it a lot more than the remake of 'Day of the Dead' which really paled in comparison to the original. I am curious if you have seen the 'Night of the Living Dead' remake with Tony Todd 'cause I really liked that movie and thought it was even better than the original but that is just me.
I love the expanded version over the theatrical cut of the original and I am usually drawn to the faster paced tighter edits. The extra scenes in the mall really enhance the dramatic quality of the film and I just love the whole feel of Dawn Of The Dead - 78'. Have seen the Argento cut once, but I feel like I am missing out on stuff and I don't like the change of score either.
I really like Savini's version of Night Of The Living Dead -90'. He took a familiar scenario, put his own little spin on it and made it tense and exciting. I enjoy both, but would prefer to watch Savini's version over Romero's here.
Don't you realize they're going to release a homicidal maniac.
I was in the mood the other night for some H.P. Lovecraft and so watched this film based on H.P's story, At the Mountains of Madness:Black Mountain Side
The current imdb rating of 5.2 reflects my estimation of the film, it isn't great but it isn't bad either. The thing I feel about H.P. Lovecraft is that he's a difficult author to translate to the big screen because nothing can match one's own imagination of his bleakness, and films from this author tend to be anti-climatic, such as the aforementioned film.
When an animal looks up at the night sky, what does it see? Thousands and thousands of tiny points. Then a man looks up at the same points and sees millions of stars; galaxies, within which are billions of planets. Do you want to know what I see? Were you there when I created the stars?
I rate this more 8.5 rather than imdb's current rating of 5.7. Don't be put off by the found footage genre because the acting and story are top notch with one of the bleakest endings I've seen in a horror film.
About a artic research station that due to global warming finds a preserved Wooly mammoth that is infected with dormant (and now thanks to global warming) alive parasites that seek out new hosts to lay their eggs in.
Pretty bad. Cliche characters who do exactly what you think they are going to do. Val Kilmer is in it so I should have known.
Watched Cult of Chucky, Fiona Dourif is like a clone of her father, same face and mannerisms, similar voice, it's almost creepy. I knew who she must be even before reading the credits. The movie wasn't bad but it gets shaky near the end and then apparently
