    ★★

    I was expecting more of a drama, but it's just a straight up comedy. And while it did manage to get a few yucks out of me, overall it's really just the most bland and generic execution they could have come through with for this great premise. Sad that among all these veteran actors, Zach Braff is the best part of the movie. Not to mention Red Letter Media did this exact premise 15 years ago!

    On the scale of video game movies, this is definitely one of the better ones. Very competently made, great set design, surprisingly strong CGI effects, and some solid horror scenes.

    My major gripe is the fact that the film feels the need to explain fucking everything through exposition. There are some awesome moments of subtle subtext and imagery that lose all of their oomph when explained by the giant exposition dump near the end.

    The only moments that felt truly…

    Very wholesome Discord viewing party with friends. Haven't rewatched this since childhood and I'm surprised how well it holds up.

    Ah, what better hangover cure than some mildly entertaining b-movie shlock. They should have called this Machete Aliens VS Old People cause that's really what it was.

    This was pitched to me as COD Nazi Zombies: The Movie and that's kinda what I got. Slick modern WW2 action combined with zombie horror. Throw in a few cookie cutter war movie characters and you basically have Black Ops 2 Origins mode.

    The opening of this film is painfully generic, and the characters (excluding Corporal Ford) are very weak. Things really pick up in the third act though, where we get a pretty epic fight between Zombie Frans and…

    Have you ever been walking home along an empty street at night and just couldn't shake the feeling that someone was following you? You turn around to look behind you, no one is there and yet you still feel uneasy. Halloween preys upon that fear. The fear of that unspeakable presence just outside of your line of sight, obscured in the darkness, the boogeyman.

    I think what I love most about this movie is the music. John Carpenter is a…

    It's clear Paul Thomas Anderson puts a lot of value in his opening scenes. It takes balls to have your entire opening take place with zero dialogue, and it takes skill to make that opening an effective introduction to the character and the stakes. Anderson has both in spades.

    Watching this movie felt like looking at a damn renaissance painting. The visuals wash over you like a dream, without being unrealistic or out of place in the real life setting.…
