    Just Before I Go 2014

    ★★½ Watched 03 Dec, 2016

    "Memory's like a magpie. It picks up on all the bright and shiny shit and pays no attention to what really matters."

    A rather unbalanced dark comedy that fumbles a bit when trying to juggle its different storylines. Just Before I Go has some amusing moments, but its plot is completely predictable.

    I love Rob Riggle in this. His character is great. Probably my favorite part of the movie.

    Oh, and don't teach kids new words. That never ends well.

    Ride Along 2 2016

    ★½ Watched 03 Dec, 2016

    Rehashes most of the first movie, tries to add a Lethal Weapon plot, and has Olivia Munn. It's not that funny, and I was bored during most of it.

  • 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.
