  • The Return of the Living Dead

    The Return of the Living Dead 1985

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Oct, 2015

    Burt: One question, Frank: this guy screaming in here... you're sure he's a dead cadaver?
    Frank: Why don't you open the door and find out!
    Burt: Uh... no, that's all right Frank, I'll take your word for that.

    A fun, entertaining zombie movie with an amusing soundtrack. I like the music that plays each time the 2,4,5 Trioxin gas is released.

    The zombies in this are rather unique, what with having intelligence, being able to talk, and some other stuff…

  • Earth Girls Are Easy

    Earth Girls Are Easy 1989

    ★★★ Watched 19 Sep, 2015

    "As if things weren't bad enough, now I've been abducted by aliens."

    This probably wouldn't be half as likable with any other cast. I mean, Jeff Goldblum as an alien totally removes any hesitancy towards getting abducted and probed, am I right?

    The movie may be stupid, but its stupidity is silly and funny, so it works. No, its biggest sins are the songs and dragging things (like the songs, but also the dance off) out. The regular musical numbers make sure you never forget Earth Girls Are Easy is from the '80s.

    I liked Geena Davis as a lingerie-clad blonde; I wish it lasted longer.

  • 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.
