    Reign of Fire

    ★★½

    "Only one thing worse than a dragon... Americans."

    Matthew McConaughey is ridiculous in this. He looks like a reject G.I. Joe.

    Gerard Butler is the best part of the movie. Needs more of him.

  • The Belko Experiment

    The Belko Experiment

    ★★★

    "Hey, listen up, everybody, whoever's doing this, they're having a little fun at our expense."

    Entertaining, but it's also poorly paced and quite predictable. I was surprised at the lack of dark comedy.

    The Belko Experiment wastes Michael Rooker and Sean Gunn. John Gallagher Jr. isn't interesting enough to be the lead.

    There's some good action and gore, but they could've had more fun with the premise.

  • 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.
