  • Kong: Skull Island

    Kong: Skull Island

    ★★½

    "An uncharted island? Let me list all the ways you're gonna die."

    Starts out well, but goes downhill once Kong shows up.

    John C. Reilly is my favorite part of the movie, though his best lines are cut better in the trailers. How unfortunate.

    The "Dear Billy" thing is a nice touch.

  • Ice Princess

    Ice Princess

    ★★★

    "When the CIA wants to learn new dirty tricks they observe figure skaters and their moms."

    Better than I expected. I'm impressed that Michelle Trachtenberg learned professional skating for this movie.

    I love the purple outfit she wears for her final performance. It's beautiful.

  • The Thing

    The Thing

    ★★★★★

    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 that even decades later they remain a disturbing sight; 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

    Army of Darkness

    ★★★★

    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.
