  • Re-Animator 1985

    ★★★★ Added 1

    Never forget where you came from.
    As I've gotten older my movie tastes have broadened, but I'll never forget movies like Re-animator that entertained me the through the rough waters of childhood. Its been quite a many years since I watched this film, a film it seems like we use to watch everyday.

    Its gross and funny and bad and has good pacing!

    I could quote this movie forever. "I have a plan" "Overdose!"

    The disembodied head of a scientist…

    I'm not giving this any rating. This was absolutely wretched. The only redeeming value is that it made every other spoof movie I have ever seen seem better.

  • Oculus 2013

    ★★★½ Added

    An evil mirror tries to destroy a family. Really decent horror, its executed well enough, but it definitely could have used more scares. I actually think a bit of humor goes well with horror, this didn't really have any. I think it will make some money as our showing had a decent amount of people for 2PM. Including a terribly wicked lady who kept taking her phone out down the aisle. I liked the cast enough and it has a few creepy scenarios. If you're not expecting The Conjuring you'll probably at least like this.

    The impossible has happened, I liked a Paranormal Activity movie.

    ★★★½ Added

    Not sure why I didn't finish watching this the first time I saw it. I think this might actually eclipse the first one in funniness. I didn't think it was going to at first. It starts out feeling a bit samey. I liked the additions of Kenan and Queen Latifah. Latifah and Eve are kind of hot in these films. Sometimes Cedric sounds like the Swedish chef.

  • Red Dawn 1984

    ★★★½ Watched 04 Apr, 2014

    Indeed better than the remake in terms of authenticity alone, no CGI and more heartfelt performances and definitely no Subway! Now the premise still seems a bit absurd, but at least it was not North Korea in this one. England we thought you were on our side. Terrible Brits, I know a few of them..wink! well they did once burn down the white house. I dunno kinda think we could get Scotland on our side.
    Not enough Jennifer Grey and…

    North Korea invades the white house. North Korea....North Korea....North Korea?

  • Red Dawn 2012

    ★★½ Added

    North Korea invades the US using parachutes. North Korea....North Korea....North Korea?

    The whole invasion scene looks like someone used MS paint for their after effects program.

    I'm glad the characters can jump from really high places and not get hurt. The Koreans had to use parachutes.

    I guess NK could best us, because we'd be so freaking busy ORDERING SUBWAY instead of fighting them #greedy Americans. Yes there's a scene where our heros take time to go to subway. Evil…

  • MST3K Soultaker

    ★★★½ Added

    Mystery Science theater pokes fun at Soultaker and I laughed quite a few times. The last MST3K film I saw was "Werewolf" which also has Joe Estevez in it, so all of the Joe Estevez, Martin Sheen jokes were funnier. "Aren't you wanted on the set of Werewolf" I'll always have a soft spot for this film, which predates films like Final Destination, but geez it sure has grown a lot more cheesier. Though still a bit of a creepy…

  • Saving Mr. Banks 2013

    ★★★★ Added

    A little film about how Mary Poppins came to be.

    This is a wonderful companion film to Mary Poppins.
    Emma Thompson is a delightfully grumpy PL Travers.(For which I will now base my idea of all British women on) :p
    Tom Hanks might be the best actor of our generation.
    Both do a fantastic job and their scenes together are so watchable.
    Paul Giamatti is also very good as the cab driver. Colin Ferrell has a great drunken/sick speech scene.…
