hey Diehard...you are an adventurous sort. Have you tried this'un
Nice cast. Very ambitious. Almost an origin story. You might like it despite it's shortcomings due to $$$$$.
Maybe, I'm not the biggest fan of demon hack-n-slash films though
Solid flick about a girl who gets ****ed up thanks to some ancient Indian burial ground. Worth a watch if you're bored.
The Matador is fun. Pierce Brosnan is pretty hilarious as a wacko hitman who's clingy and lonely. Good stuff.
Was pretty underwhelmed by this movie. Thought it had good potential but didn't really deliver. Reminded me a bit of Triangle except not as good or elaborate.
Watched a few classics for the first time recently. Just a reminder, I only became a horror fanatic at the beginning of the year.
My favorites were Suspiria and The Thing. Hadn't seen an Argento film before and Suspiria was absolutely brilliant. Deep Red was good too, not as good as Suspiria in my opinion. As far as the Carpenter films, I loved The Thing. Halloween, not as much. The scare tactics aren't as effective as they were back then, although it's obvious that tons of films were influenced by it, one of which was Scream. And yea, I thought Scream was stupid.
I liked Texas Chainsaw Massacre, although I thought it was more fun than scary. Seemed like the last 45 minutes of the movie were mostly the girl screaming incessantly while being chased by chainsaw dude. I also couldn't stop laughing during the scene with the grandpa and the hammer. Is the remake worth a watch?
Mother is a 1952 film by Mikio Naruse, a director I've heard a lot about but had yet to actually see any films by (even though I own one). This film isn't available on DVD (although it's currently available on Hulu, thanks to Criterion, so when I saw it was coming on Turner Classics, I got pretty excited. Then I let it sit on my DVR for a really long time because it wasn't as sexy or exciting as other stuff I wanted to watch. I watched it last night, though, and I loved it. It's a post-war film about a poor family with 4 kids. The only son dies young, then the father dies and it's up to Mom to raise and provide for her children with little money. It's kind of... it's almost exactly what you'd expect from a movie about that subject, but it's really well done and the actress who plays Mom, Kinuyo Tanaka, is fantastic.
It's a moving, funny and sad little film. The kind that would get all kinds of award talk and be beloved by all the indie film lovers (including myself) if it came out today and was American. If you've got a Hulu subscription, I HIGHLY recommend it. Hopefully, Criterion's in the process of restoring it and putting some special features together for a proper release because I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
Dude, I think I've watched Mother an eternity ago on VHS. It sounds familiar.
