  • Toy Story That Time Forgot 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Dec, 2014

    Ohmigod I need Battlesaurs! Those have got to be the coolest toys ever!

    Cute special. Angel Kitty's random fortune cookie tidbits are amusing.



  • Insidious 2010

    ★★ Watched 08 Dec, 2014

    This film starts out good. Then, the lady comes along and delivers her long-ass exposition explaining everything that's going on. The movie just plummets at that point.

    Such a stupid explanation for everything, and the exposition is delivered in the least interesting way possible. There was more than one time I thought I might fall asleep.

    I've never liked the black-and-red demon guy. He doesn't look like a scary demon: he looks like a guy covered in paint. It's way too ridiculous looking to be scary.

    Also, screw Insidious's attempts at jump scares. Loud noises do not a scary movie make.

  • 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.
