  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 01 Aug, 2014

    I don't know what to say, really. Actions speak louder than words, right? Well, I saw this movie three times in the theater on opening weekend. I'd never seen a movie more than once on opening weekend, and I saw this one THREE times.

    Guardians of the Galaxy is fun. Like really, really fun.

    And I love Karen Gillan as Nebula. I've never heard her so crazy and aggressive, before... It's really hot.

  • Sharknado 2: The Second One 2014

    Watched 30 Jul, 2014

    April Wexler: Fin, why aren't you having more fun with this?
    Fin Shepard: Come on, April. Two of my friends were killed. I almost destroyed Los Angeles. And, oh, yeah... I got eaten by shark. How much fun do you think that was?

    This movie is terrible, just like the first one. The amusing thing was to read people's tweets making fun of it during its premiere.

    The opening airplane scene is so ridiculous you'd swear it's a dream sequence,…

  • 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.
