    Close Encounters of the Third Kind

    ★★★★★

    Make sure you have a pair of aviators handy, because the UHD of this is going to blow you away.

    The product placement for Coca-Cola is unreal in this. I don't like Coke (I'm a root beer boy), but this flick had me jonesing so hard for a Coke, that I ended up getting one and drinking it during the film. The whole time I was drinking it (I still don't like Coke) I was just like "you got me Altman".

    Rewatching Angst, and also currently reading Helter Skelter, has me realizing that probably the scariest thing is just some random person who wants to kill someone, attacking you and trying to kill you. Consider this, all of us at one time or another could have been just moments away from being murdered by someone who just wants to kill, but a locked door of a house, or choosing to not walk down a dark alley late at night, prevented it from happening. Basically, this is a PSA telling you to make sure that your doors are locked, and don't walk down any dark alleys.

    I think it would be very fun listening to some horror geek explaining this film to some normie.

    "Apple juice. Apple juice flood."

    The Isles of Dogs trailer got me jonesing for a rewatch of this, and since this flick is an effortless watch, I got a rewatch in right away.

    Very nice Blu, much better than the projections in the theatre, which is sad to say.

    This pretty much demands multiple watches in order to grasp the subtle (and not so subtle) references to the film's main theme throughout the movie. I definitely missed a couple major ones, and picking up on them this second go around made this watch very sweet. No matter how set in stone we think things are, or how destiny driven we feel life is, there is always something new to learn, and somewhere else to travel.

  • Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland

    Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland

    ★★★½

    Does a good job differentiating itself from the second film, despite being filmed at the same time. There are some enjoyable kills, and the majority of the characters are unlikable, in the best way possible.

  • Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers

    Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers

    ★★★½

    I think the poster for this film has contributed to a childhood memory that I have never been able to confirm is real or not. I recall being away for the weekend with my family, and we were staying at a hotel, and the television was on, but I was supposed to be sleeping, and I recall there being an entertainment show on, and they were showing clips for a Freddy vs. Jason film that was in production. There were…

    Creepshow 2

    ★★★★

    A thoroughly enjoyable anthology flick, with all three of the stories being fun to watch. I do think a little fat could have been trimmed off all of the stories though, and a fourth story could have then been added.

  • Kong: Skull Island

    The Mother Longlegs scene is certainly a favourite of mine.
