    Dark Places 2015

    ★★½ Watched 10 Nov, 2015

    I wanted to like this, but it's just kind of average. I feel like it's probably a better book -- there are so many scene changes and timelines and points of view that it feels like a very fractured film.

    The Stranger 2015

    ★★★ Watched 31 Oct, 2015

    A vampire movie that isn't about vampires. This film got a lot of flack for being "serious" and "a bummer". Maybe it's my old somber goth youth but I liked the stilted accents and the air of severity over everything.

  • Split Second

    Split Second 1992

    ★★★ Watched 10 Apr, 2012

    Look, pretty much everything you need to know about this movie you can see in the poster. It's Rutger Hauer and the slogan is: "He's seen the future.. now he has to kill it. He'll need bigger guns." The rest of the movie is written as delightfully terribly as the slogan.

    Hauer plays a cop in an alternate future London who must stop an Alien rip-off from tearing out people's hearts. He also calls a dog a "dickhead". Twice.

  • Shaun of the Dead

    Shaun of the Dead 2004

    ★★★★★ Added

    This is my favorite movie. Yes, Shaun of the Dead. There are some scary bits, some gory bits, some funny bits, and some touching bits, wrapped up in a big message about how behaving like a grown-up is unpleasant but necessary sometimes. The creators of this movie clearly love the genre, and it's full of really delightful in-jokes for the zombie fan.
