    The Host 2006

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 17 Mar, 2012

    Until you watch this, you may not believe that a horror movie can also be a moving, sweet family drama.

  • Tucker and Dale vs Evil

    ★★★★★ Watched 27 Feb, 2012

    Everyone who said this film was hilarious and awesome was right. Not too many scares, more like "haha, that guy just DIED!"

    One of my favorite alien invasion movies, ever.

  • ParaNorman

    ParaNorman 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 05 Dec, 2012

    Great horror movie references, excellent animation, plenty of giggles, all almost enough to make me forget this is a movie about a dude telling a lady how she really feels and then mansplaining away her problems.

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Dec, 2012

    If the story wasn't terribly original, I loved the setting, the characters, and the glimpse of life in Jakarta (assuming not everyone is battling human traffickers on the streets everyday). Also, great, kinetic, almost unbelievable fight scenes.

  • Silver Linings Playbook

    Silver Linings Playbook 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Nov, 2012

    An almost perfect mash-up of dark comedy and romantic comedy. You'll spend the first half wondering where this horrible movie is going and the second half wondering how more perfect this movie could be.

  • The Cabin in the Woods

    The Cabin in the Woods 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Apr, 2012

    I enjoyed that it wasn't so much of a twist as a gradual revealing, with copious amounts of blood and gore. And humor.

  • Jane Eyre

    Jane Eyre 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 03 May, 2012

    Fukunaga, the director, seemed to really understand that there is an underlying horror story to Jane Eyre.

    Even knowing the plot upside-down and inside-out, there were times when I worried (in a good way) that just maybe Bertha was gonna jump out and start murdering some governesses, Freddie Kruger style.

  • I Saw the Devil

    I Saw the Devil 2010

    ★★★★ Watched 17 Mar, 2012

    So intense, I actually covered my eyes with my hands.

  • The Good, The Bad, The Weird

    The Good, The Bad, The Weird 2008

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Feb, 2012

    This movie was non-stop awesome fun until the last 5-10 minutes. That was anti-climatic, but still sort-of fun.

    If it's a friday night after a long week and you don't want to be particularly moved, but you wouldn't mind a few laughs and a flat romance, this is an adequate choice.
