  • Dog Soldiers

    Dog Soldiers 2002

    ★★★½ Rewatched 22 Mar, 2015

    "If we do happen to make contact, I expect nothing less than gratuitous violence from the lot of ya."

    I've only seen this movie once before, probably back in 2002, and the only thing I remembered was that I liked it, so it was definitely time for a rewatch.

    Quite enjoyable. I really like the special effects, especially the werewolf designs. Sean Pertwee is great.

  • The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

    The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 2014

    They split the book into two movies, and then they cut out some scenes and neutered others (basically everything with Finnick). This movie is pretty much just setting up Part 2; I hope the buildup is worth it.

  • The Thing

    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

    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.
