Currently watching...

 


Comedies honestly don't get much better than this. I can watch this film a thousand times over, without even taking a break, and still chortle violently at every gag.

The sequels are completely lacking of this charm however.

Yet moer Lovecraft ...




 


Necronomicon (3/10)

A pretty boring adaptation which not even David Warner can save.




 


From Beyond (6/10)

I can't quite put my finger on what it is but there's something about a lot of mid 80s US horror that I really don't like. Whatever it is it's a shame because actors like Jeffrey Combs are fantastic and given better films to star in he could've been the new Peter Cushing. Oh well. 4 for the film, an extra 2 for Combs.

the rubbery cheesy effects in the Gordon stuff would make me subtract 2 more.
Alien just so much better.

Latest for me was original version of Insomnia with Stellan Skarsgård. Sooo much better than the remake. Other than as a cash cow, why does Hollywuud do this?

Cloverfield (7/10)

If they could've ditched the whole home movie idea and given just a bit more thought to the storyline, this would've been utterly amazing.

Paranormal Activity (7/10)

I don't usually expect a horror film to actually scare me but this really did.

^ still haven't seen that. Watching the trailer reminded me a bit of Blair Witch Project.. unfortunately I'm not very familiar with the horror genre itself (I plan to fix that soon).

It definitely has a Blair Witch feel to it, but rather than having that film's more home movie style, PA has this ignenious and really effective way of using faux-cctv footage. Hard to explain why this adds to the suspense but it definitely does. For me, anyway. Bits of it are really eerie.

What did you think of Mullholland Dr.?

Mulholland Drive is a 10/10 in my opinion. First time I saw it I didn't know much about it and it was very thought provoking towards the end when everything began changing. It has been done by others, but I love the structure... where the dream sequences feel no different than reality. Some very memorable moments.. the monster behind the diner, the chilling scene in the theatre at the end, the discussion with "The Cowboy", the suicide at the end involving hallucinations of naomi watts' character (and the little old people!). The acting was fantastic too... with no big names really. (Naomi Watts did end up having some bigger roles later on after this film though). She apparently did the voice for one of the rabbits in inland empire (a film I'm rather neutral towards... it's very messy)

I'll try to watch paranormal activity soon to see what I think about it.

Yeah, I have to agree about Mullholland Dr. The scene in the theatre is one of my favourite film moments ever. It's interesting how so many of his films have those kind of musical 'time out' scenes, 'In Heaven' in Eraserhead, 'In Dreams' in Blue Velvet, 'Love Me Tender' in Wild at Heart, 'Chorando' in MD, etc. They've become a kind of Lynch signature.

Yeah, i must say, paranormal activity freaked me out like no other horror film. i dont know why, but i was really scared, even after the film. there is something about ghosts, and the way that the film was done that just really scared me.

Here's a Hammer movie from the early 1970's, about an incestual brother and sister, and their insane father. Oh, and I think it has the old guy from "A Clockwork Orange". Not too bad, not too great, but not too bad.

Twilight (well mostly by curiosity because of Kristen Stewart and Ashley Greene good looks... ). That didn't save the film from its cheesiness

Skyline (5/10)

Enjoyable enough but not much more than a fairly run of the mill merging of Cloverfield, ID4 and Spielberg's War of the Worlds. A nice apocalyptic ending, though.

SRSLY??? I thought it was terrible. I mean, I understand fear is a personal thing so whatever scares you scares you. But I found the acting so shit that I had trouble believing anything that happened.

Troll Hunter- This is one odd movie. Its much more in line with "District 9" then something like "Cloverfield", and its pretty enjoyable.

I never picked up on the bad acting. I found the main guy really irritating but I suppose I put that down more to his character than the actor himself. And I thought the main woman was pretty good - although as a character, she obviously should've dumped her boyfriend the second he brought home the ouija board.

Also, although I'm not sure it was intentional, bits of it were quite funny, like the psychic detective who gets freaked out and just leaves them stranded. But the actual ghost bits did really scare me.

I just watched "Thor". It made me feel skinny and weak (and I weigh 178 pounds).
