  • Sharknado 2: The Second One 2014

    Watched 30 Jul, 2014

    This movie is terrible, just like the first one. The amusing thing was to read people's tweets making fun of it during its premiere.

    The opening airplane scene is so ridiculous you'd swear it's a dream sequence, but somehow it's not. That sort of sets the tone for the whole movie.

    I would never expect subtlety from a SyFy movie, but this one really went above and beyond. The guy from Airplane piloting the airplane. The guy from Taxi driving…

  • Prisoners 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Jun, 2014

    Wolverine is just having a really bad time of things, here.

    Intense and gripping. It keeps the audience in the dark; we're constantly trying to solve the puzzle along with the characters. Go into this knowing nothing to experience the full effect.

  • The Thing 1982

    ★★★★★ Added

    This is one of my favorite films ever. It is the perfect blend of sci-fi and horror. The special effects are so well done; modern movies should watch The Thing and weep in shame.

    The characters, the paranoia, the sense of claustrophobic doom, it's all brilliantly done.

    I watched this movie when I was decently young, so it holds a special place in my heart as being one of the few films that ever managed to scare me.

  • Army of Darkness 1992

    ★★★★ Rewatched 20 Aug, 2013 4

    Just found my MGM Region 3 Director's Cut buried in a pile of DVDs. Groovy.

    The movie is 93 minutes long with some alternate takes and the original ending. It's awesome, though I do miss "Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun."

    Army of Darkness is a ridiculous, campy, over-the-top slapstick comedy in which the goofy Ash manages to make life a lot more difficult for everyone he meets. There really is nothing like a Bruce Campbell one-liner.
