    Run, Fatboy, Run

    ★★★

    "Dennis, you're my best friend, I'm not going to bet against you. Not with these odds."

    Needs more Dylan Moran.

    It's amusing. Predictable, but still amusing. You could plot out everything that happens after the first few minutes and get every beat right, but Run, Fatboy, Run is still fun enough to watch once. Simon Pegg is decently entertaining.

    Dylan Moran is perfect as the shit friend. It really needs more of him.

    ★★

    "Coughlin's Law: anything else is always something better."

    Dull. Very, very dull. It keeps going and going and as it went on I completely lost interest. I guess watching Tom Cruise toss bottles, get laid, and be an asshole can only take a movie so far.

    Hey, did you know that bartenders don't make great role models? Crazy shit, man.

  • 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.
