    I LOVE Clive Barker! :D

    Barker is sort of two types of writer which he has developed into. The earlier short story more oriented horror writer and latter day more dark fantasy novelist. I like the bulk of his work, but some of his novels do get long winded. The Great and Secret Show, however, is made up of all sorts of win! And creepy. :O

    I was thinking about his Books of Blood collection because I read "In the Hills, The Cities" yesterday. And I can see how some people would prefer short stories. The good ones get to the point, but at the same time, deal with strange and weird ideas that make them seem bigger.


    But this thread is about movies, oops! :P

    I like Midnight Meat Train okay. It's not perfect, but it's enjoyable. A lot of people didn't think it brought justice to the story, but I disagree. I would've liked it set in NY like the story, however.

    I also watched Book of Blood, which I also enjoyed. Interesting creepy sexual story.

    Haven't watched Dread though yet. :( Anybody watch it?

    Oh, and I am really fond of the Candyman. What do you peeps think about that?

    I've seen Midnight Meat Train, didn't really care for it. I'm just not very fond of stories revolving around demonic mutants and ****, which it seems like Barker writes a lot about.

    I get a feeling that JD is quite fond of demons and stuff. Just a guess.

    I know I am!



    Barker has some Irish ancestry and his demon stories and what have you are partly inspired by Catholicism.

    Apparently, Universal was developing a Tortured Souls movie to be directed by Clive Barker himself, but was ultimately shelved because the studio didn't want to have 2 demon movies. The other demon movie they were talking about and got made? Doom.

    Yeah Orph...8 years of Catholic school does tend to make one fond of Fallen Angel/Demon stories...so, guilty.

    Still trying to get caught up on tv so no time for new movies...yet I have revisited some older ones I wanted to mention



    Such a shame. Martin Lawrence/Eddie Murphy probably haven't been as good as they were in this for a long while, but NOBODY went to see this. Sure it's a little predictable but its funny/sweet and actually touching at times. Nice supporting cast too including Bernie Mac. If you haven't seen this and still remember when Eddie was good, give it a try.

    and this



    is really a perfect movie. Just fun on a bun. Great action sequences that are filmed SO WELL. The Rock, Stifler, Rosario Dawson, Uncle Rico, Christopher freaking Walken and Ewen Bremner(who almost steals the whole thing). It's funny, moves fast and just all around entertains the **** outta ya! LOVE this movie and it's probably in my all time top ten.

    The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (Extended Version) - So the original cut of this made-for-tv film (and the two sequels) is almost 4 hours long and available for free Amazon Prime streaming right now, so over a couple nights I watched the entire first movie. As a big fan of the books and the movies, I enjoyed it quite a bit. Smaller plot threads and character bits are given a little more room and time, which I liked. There were also a couple "detective" parts that were more fleshed out so they seemed a little less... lucky, I guess. Having said that, though, nothing really essential was cut out of the film for it's international release and I'd recommend this version only to people who really enjoyed the theatrical version.



    Men In Black III - Not much to say about this one other than it's fun. Nothing too heavy, nothing too terribly funny, but a good time. Josh Brolin does a great Tommy Lee Jones impression and the Andy Warhol cameo was pretty fun. Worth a watch.



    Savages - I've never been much of an Oliver Stone fan, so I went into this with some serious trepidation and got pretty much exactly what I expected. It's not a bad movie, but other than enjoying the **** out of Benicio Del Toro's scenery chewing, the film didn't do much for me. I thought Blake Lively's character was really annoying, and I couldn't find anything to make me care about anything else that happened.



    V/H/S - Went to a press screening of this new horror anthology with extremely high expectations and I'm happy to say I came out of it pretty satisfied. I have to write a full review for the website, but briefly I'll say that there was something to like in every segment. Some were, of course, better than others (I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think Ti West's segment might have been my favorite) and I don't know if I'd say that any of them were perfect but this film gives the whole 'found footage' subsection of horror a nice extra bit of life. Highly recommended for horror fans.



    [Rec] 3: Genesis - Also went to a press screening of this on the same day. I still haven't seen the second film in the series, but I really like the first one and I'd read that this was a standalone film, so I felt ok about seeing them out of order. I was not at all prepared for this flick like I thought I'd be. The first film in the series, and the second I hear, are straight forward, found footage horror films. This movie starts out that way, but just as the infected/zombies/whatever are terrorizing this wedding, the film title pops up and everything changes from then on. This is a ****ing over the top, violent and gross zombie COMEDY and it's actually FUNNY. And they ditch the found footage thing, too! It's not exactly Shaun Of The Dead, but it's not trying to be, either. It was a LOT of fun and I recommend it highly, as long as you're ok with it not being anything like the first two.

    Damn it I wish I had made it to those screenings. Perfect review of MIB3. It's just fun. Did you see it in 2 or 3d? The 3d really added to it becuase it was used really well. Disagree sort of about Savages, but I wanted to like it so that might have helped. Think Lively is taking a lot of hits for, what I thought, was a good performance. Her character, in theory, was unlikeable and she pulled it off. Ending was a cop out.

    2D. I remember you saying that about the 3, but the timing was off and for a movie like this, that I was only expecting to be fun, I just didn't care enough to spend the extra money.

    I think she made her character more likable than it might otherwise have been, and I don't really think it's her fault I found her character annoying. I think that was more a script issue. But, yeah, something about Oliver Stone movies... the way he directs and/or writes just doesn't sit with me.

    The scene in MIB3 where he broke out of prison and jumped across the moon towards the screen, alone justified the 3d. I think Sonnenfeld was a dp before he became a director and it really showed. Fair enough about Savages. Stone is very divisive style wise although this was kinda Stone-light as far as conspiracy theaories/politics. Travolta/Hayek were pretty damned good too.

    I'm really, really looking forward to seeing V/H/S, and adgy's review just increased my anticipation tenfold. On the other hand, kind of disappointed that Rec3 is going to be a comedy so I'll probably skip it.

    I remember that movie being surprisingly very fun and being impressed with Dwayne Johnson enough that I have been wanting him to play Jack Reacher. How silly of me to not realize that a 50-year old couch-jumping midget was better suited for the part.
