  • The House at the End of Time 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 25 Feb, 2015

    A little heavy on the sap at the end, but ultimately pretty satisfying and less confusing than a lot of other time travel/multi-dimension movies I've seen. The story also seems pretty original once it unravels.

    Calling this a "horror" movie is sort of a stretch though I think. Ominous music, jump scares, death, a house that does weird shit, children in general - yes, all things that are unnerving - but I still wouldn't really slap "horror" on this little guy. But hey whatever that's just me and maybe Venezuela knows something I don't.

  • Devil's Knot 2013

    Watched 18 Jan, 2015

    This movie made me laugh a whole lot, and I'm pretty certain that was NOT their intention.

    Despite good casting and a lot of talent, Devil's Knot is absolutely no better than a cheesy Lifetime movie. It feels hilariously cheap and even absurd at times, which is pretty ridiculous when you remember that three kids actually did get tortured and murdered, and three other kids got wrongly accused.

    If you haven't already, just watch the documentaries instead because goddamn this is awful and honestly really unnecessary.

  • Taken 2008

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 27 Feb, 2014

    Whatever, I love this movie. And although I'm sure my own father would try his best to rescue me, I'd like to officially request that Liam Neeson be the one assigned to come after me if I ever get kidnapped and sold into human trafficking. He seems to know his way around an International kidnapping, whereas my dad knows his way around Pawn Stars and getting the best deals on deli meats.
