    Roar 1981

    ★★★ Watched 07 Nov, 2015

    Holy shit, this movie is INSANE in the best possible way. It's not necessarily a "Great" movie, but it is a GREAT viewing experience. Either way, I loved every minute of it.

    Not bad, but not particularly good, either. As with a lot of horror films these days, it's more boring than scary. It's almost as if the filmmakers think they're building tension, but in reality they forget to have anything interesting happen in between all the jump scares.

    I'm so conflicted by this movie; on the one hand, Simmons delivers a great performance (seriously, he totally deserved that Oscar) and the direction is top notch (I never imagined watching people play music could be quite so thrilling). On the other hand, I just can't get on board with the film's pro-bullying message. So yeah...I admire it in a lot of ways, but I don't think I liked it very much.

    Not bad, but this movie is far more impressed with itself than I could ever be.
