    Catching up:


    This was on the top of my list of movies I wanted to see, so when the HK Blu got released, I bought the **** out of it right away. It's a funny, entertaining gangster flick. Lots of twists and turns in the plot. Loved it. Chow Yun Fat is so underrated at comedy, but he chews scenery like a goddamn pro.




    I mentioned this in the movie quiz thread, but this was ****ING AWESOME. Creepy as ****. LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED IT.

    Also, damn Olivia Hussey was hot.



    Watched this mainly because Quentin Tarantino liked it enough to name his distribution arm under Miramax after it. Plus, it was in HD and is only available to buy through MGM's On Demand DVD-R service thing. And I'd read that it was pretty good.

    It was. Not great, necessarily, but a good revenge film that's really more about what having been a tortured POW in Vietnam did to one man. It takes about 90 of the film's 99 minute run time to build up to the end, but if you've got the patience for it, it's worth the investment.

    Extra points for having the youngest Tommy Lee Jones I've ever seen and for guaranteeing I will never forget William Devane's name again.




    Watched the first 3 of the 8 Horatio Hornblower movies. They have all been very good so far, especially considering the limited budget. I look forward to seeing the rest of them.



    When you're scrolling through the guide, looking at what is going to be showing later on the HD movie channels and you come across a WWII movie starring Robert Duvall, Michael Caine and Donald Sutherland and directed by John Sturges (Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape)... YOU DVR THAT MOVIE.

    I liked it quite a bit. Sutherland was funny and Michael Caine was cool. Naturally.



    God, I love John Carpenter.




    Got a screener of this, which was nice since I won't be able to catch it at CineFamily. It's very much a slow burn type of horror film. The movie is about 2 1/2 hours long and the first two hours is basically this guy getting walked over by everyone. His daughter hates him, his wife won't sleep with him and some rich guy has basically taken over his life and made him accomplice to some ****ed up ****. And then he pushes the mild-mannered Japanese guy too far.

    It's pretty ****ed up and at one point, I actually said to myself that I was surprised to see people doing what they were doing. In that sort of "wow, people are being paid to do this" kind of way. It was just... jeez, that's ****ed up.

    I liked it a lot.

    It was slow and didn't have a lot to say... but it was pretty to look at, there were some touching moments and some good laughs.

    Watched "Moon" last night. Slow going until the real sci-fi kicks in half-way through. Must watch for sci-fi lovers.

    Saw this last night, had heard good things and the creative team's Mulberry Street is one of the only 8 films to die for that I would watch again. Odd that it shares a title(basically) with Zombieland, because it is similarly plotted, w/vamps substituting for Zombies. That's where the similarities end. This movie has no joy...just survival from day-to-day. Complicating things are the Brotherhood...an Aryan cult that believe the vamps are sent as a tool to destroy non believers...and they drop vamps from helicopters into the few remaining outposts of civilization. It's a very dark movie and not for folks who can't hang with a slow moving story. But if you have patience and like movies that don't pander to happy endings, you may want to see this. Also Danielle Harris alert for Orpheus.

    Watched "Limitless" last night. Some very cool camera work/effects, but the story is kind of one-note and obvious after the first 15 mins.

    OUTSTANDING. From Hammer films this little creepfest combines Pet Semetary with Wicker man, and just gets it right. A lot of animal violence, so if you're squeamish like me in that regard, it's a little tough. Good stuff, highly recommended!

    Watched "Passion Play" tonight. Wow, what a mess. It should be shown to film classes as an example of how not to write/direct. The editing was also horrible.

    Everyone moans about how bad Megan Fox is, but her and Bill Murray are the only two who attempted to earn their pay. Oh and one more thing: never has there been a worse use of smoking on-screen. Ever. Some scenes had Rourke magically starting smoking half way into a scene. Ugh. A really bad movie that barely earns a 2/10.
