  • Lava

    Lava 2015

    Watched 28 Jun, 2015

    Watching this, I think I learned in five minutes everything I need to know about plotting a story.

    I'm not sure how I feel about Lava or what rating to give it. It's cute, but it felt very emotionally manipulative.

  • Bailout!

    Bailout! 2011

    ★★★ Watched 26 Jun, 2015

    This is a short that's included with Helldriver. It's possibly better than the feature movie itself. It certainly has better video quality.

    Bailout! is nothing like Helldriver. Yes, it's a spin-off, but it only happens to take place in the same world. It's a different director with a different style and no characters cross over from the original movie.

    I find this small look at a few people trapped north of the wall more interesting than Helldriver's big, revengy, kill-the-queen-of-the-zombies…

  • 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 that even decades later they remain a disturbing sight; 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.
