  • The Purge: Anarchy 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 20 Jul, 2014 2

    Before Frank Grillo became Crossbones, he was... The Punisher.

    Here it is! The movie The Purge couldn't be because it didn't have the budget. Is Anarchy perfect? Of course not. But I was damn entertained.

    This time, we get to be on the streets and see some violence. I wish there were a little more variety. Like, there'd be drag racing and seriously tricked-out death vehicles and gambling on Colosseum fights... Also, almost everyone uses a gun. Is pointing and…

  • The Uninvited 2009

    Watched 18 Jul, 2014

    I've seen A Tale of Two Sisters, of which this movie is a "remake," so I already knew the one twist. I found the other twist to be rather lame and uninspired.

    Emily Browning spends most of the movie with the same dumb look on her face.

    What else is there to say? The Uninvited is pretty boring.

  • 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.
