  • The Expendables 3 2014

    ★★½ Watched 24 Aug, 2014

    Why the hell would you sideline Terry Crews for the entire movie? He's one of the best parts!

    Not a big fan of the new kids, nor am I a fan of the "man, we're getting old" plot. It seems like it goes against the whole point of The Expendables to let age become a negative when kicking ass.

  • Superman/Batman: Apocalypse 2010

    ★★½ Watched 20 Jan, 2015

    Sometimes the script is really stupid.

    None of the battles are really that epic. And I get tired real quick of them trying to make it epic when Superman is offscreen for two seconds like he died or something. WE KNOW HE'S NOT DEAD! Superman walking out of a fire is not impressive; it's expected.

    Also, at the end, when three super-beings are pummeling the crap out of each other and no real damage is being done to the characters because they're pretty much invulnerable, the fight seems to go on forEVER. Ugh, end already.

  • 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.
