    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

  • Carrie 2013

    ★½ Watched 11 Sep, 2014

    I was just so bored watching this. I almost turned it off less than halfway through it, but I was hoping the climactic scene might be worth it. (It wasn't.)

    Chloe looks awkwardly awkward, like she's never felt awkward in her life and she's trying to imitate someone else. She spends the whole film overacting: the over-the-top screaming in the shower scene; the constipation/O-faces and hand movements when she's using her telekinesis; the look-at-how-awkward-I-am awkwardness.

    Watching Carrie learn about telekinesis…

  • 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.
