    The Strangers: Prey at Night


    I decided to see this after hearing so many positive things about it.
    I don't know what movie other people saw, because they are giving this one WAY too much credit. I was basically bored out of my mind for 90 minutes... that is, when I wasn't busy rolling my eyes.

    Also, this whole latest trend/crutch of setting scenes in your horror movie to 80's songs in a shameless, desperate effort to make it seem retro and cool needs to end.

  • Thoroughbreds



    Glad I saw it only because it was Yelchin's final film, but overall, the movie was pretty bland. It just reveled way too much its own "indie"-ness. And I don't know about anyone else, but I was rooting for the girls to die. They were just unlikable b*tches. Oh well, it cost me nothing but time. Thanks, MoviePass.

    Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond - Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton


    There's a part of this film where Carrey talks about how Universal decided at that time they didn't want to allow any of this behind-the-scenes material to surface "so that people wouldn't think I was an asshole."

    Well, almost 20 years later it finally surfaced, and Universal was right.

    This documentary just made me see Carrey as a completely obnoxious person to work with. He already seemed liked someone who would be a bit much to tolerate, but his behavior…

  • Scream



    While the horror genre thrived in the 80's with the Freddy/Jason-type unstoppable killer movies, the whole genre was pretty much dying in the 90's. Scream came along in 1996 and not only reinvigorated the genre, but completely reinvented it. Wildly popular (and deservedly so) at the time, its reputation has since been tarnished as it often gets lumped in with the countless wanna-bes and knock-offs that followed, including its own relatively inferior sequels. But this was a great horror flick…
