  • Equinox

    Equinox 1970

    ★★★ Watched 06 Oct, 2015

    Equinox definitely reminded me of the Evil Dead movies. The monsters were fun to watch and the stop-motion special effects were great. Not quite like anything I've seen before. If you can look past the awful dialogue and the stilted acting, there is a lot to enjoy in Equinox.

    I also learned that Satan is a very bad, very bad kisser. For me, that was the only stomach-churning part in this "horror" film.

  • Road House

    Road House 1989

    ★★★ Watched 01 Oct, 1990

    As a kid, my best friend and I were fascinated with this movie. It was so over-the-top crazy to us that we watched it many times while all the other girls were watching romantic comedies.

    Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 10 Aug, 2014

    I've never enjoyed a superhero movie more than this. While a superhero's abilities often separate him/her from the average person, this film makes the superheroes into a type of everyman. They are more easy to relate to than characters such as Superman or even Captain America. I've never read comic books and have never even heard of these characters, but I'm definitely a fan now. The casting, the special effects, the writing, the tone, everything about this film worked extremely well. I would definitely recommend this to friends--even if they are not into science fiction or superheroes.

  • No Country for Old Men

    No Country for Old Men 2007

    ★★★★★ Watched 20 Mar, 2008

    One of the things that makes Javier Bardem's performance so unnerving is that he is not just a hit man, he's also a serial killer. While this can't possibly be the first time such a character has been portrayed, it sure does feel original in the context of this film.
