PRINCE OF DARKNESS

Huge fan of the man's Halloween and The Thing, but this sorta forgotten classic ranks up there as Carpenter's creepiest movie imo.

Prince of Darkness is a classic. The Homeless people gathering around the church is the most remarkable for for me as there are a few cameos in that group, Alice Cooper the most recognizable one.

I watched Underworlds back to back this morning. The First one with Joe Mantega, Dennis Miller, Annabella Sciorra, and Larry Bishop is not bad. It starts out with a massacre of mob members. Miller character is a gangster who has been released from prison with many questions and tries to get Mantega character to come back in the life. The movie takes place on the night of Fathers day and is a good ride. The other Underworld is a vampire versus werewolves. This is a good movie with a strong cast and performances. I really enjoy both of these movies.

Great cameo yeah.
That "this is not a dream" sequence that's repeated throughout the movie is one of the most nightmarish things ever in a mainstream horror movie.

I watched John Carpenter's adaptation of the Stephen King novel, Christine, again.

It's good but it definitely loses its edge in the second half.

Great soundtrack!


I'm fascinated with myself and love hearing the sound of my own voice. I'd like to hear what I have to say. A lot of people don't like being alone because they truly don't like themselves, but I love me.

Solid six, well....i was planning on this next but she changed her mind and wants to see US this week.

I may be able to watch some better movies soon as well since Ive decided to pull the trigger and get a streaming box, will keep cable as well but will have much more options.

Nice. What did you get? I wouldn't mind cutting the cord since I only watch a few channels, but there's some shows I don't believe are available on demand, so that's 1 reason I haven't done it yet.

I am going to meet up with a friend this week who has a friend who demos new type of Jet Stream box that hooks right up to your tv or device and the only thing it needs is WiFi for connection. I am going to check it out and see how it works , if I buy it I will use it as a add on for now to what I have now ( Cablevision).

SHAZAM! was a lot of fun. I didn't know much about the character going in to the film. Really the only thing I knew was he had many of the same abilities as Superman, but this is definitely one of the better DC movies as of late. Unfortunately, at times they almost "shove" their heroes in your face as one character constantly wears a Superman backpack, has Batman/Superman memorabilia in his room, at toy stores you only see Batman/Superman figures. I understand DC is wanting to promote their own brand and isn't going to plug Marvel; however, DC does have more superheros than Batman and Superman. Back to the film, it's funny, light-hearted and doesn't take itself too seriously. 6/10

I was pretty bored with PET SEMATARY and I should have known better. I have nothing against the man personally, but a handful of Jason Clarke's latest releases have been misses for me. From TERMINATOR GENISYS to WINCHESTER to the horrible SERENITY that was offered up earlier this year. I never read the book or saw the original so I wasn't sure what to expect going in, but the film takes some time to establish itself. The only part I somewhat enjoyed was maybe the last 5-10 minutes honestly. 5.5/10

Watched two S. Craig Zahler movies.

BONE TOMAHAWK

Western-meets-Exploitation featuring the always great Kurt Russell. It's a bit of a slow-burn movie, but I happen to like slow-burn. There's some great and nuanced writing going on: it's quirky without venturing into comedy territory, it feels Western but remarkably "dirtier" and when the cannibal horror kicks in it doesn't feel out of place. The movie seems to bring you into a stable mood before hitting you over the head with ultra-violence that comes in fast at an almost unexpected moment and which features a show-stopper of a gruesome scene. I like this movie quite a lot.

BRAWL IN CELL BLOCK 99

The next Zahler movie I like about just as much as Bone Tomahawk. This time a Crime-meets-Exploitation movie it's again one badass affair with some remarkably nasty violence.
Yep, more of this please.




Then I also watched an Argentinian horror flick.

ATERRADOS

Didn't expect much from "Argentine" and "horror" but I was pleasantly surprised. A nice surreal and nightmarish mood as well as some truly unnerving set pieces. It all didn't make much sense, but for what it was, it was well done.

Last night watched Gotti with Armand Assante. He is one terrific actor. His delivery is so unique. It can only be matched by Rod Steiger.

We are checking back on some of your reviews so we check our list we made for our Watchlist.

We just saw ESCAPE ROOM and both enjoyed it, next up GLASS.

Was also looking to see if you saw and rated VENUMI may not have gone back far enough, we watched that today as well and thought it was very well done.

Thanks again i12 and all.

The studio went with the PG-13 rating to appeal to a wider audience and I'm not sure a R rating would have done much more for it. Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams are better than this and terribly underutilized. I am a Tom Hardy fan and I can honestly say, I think this was one of his movies that wasn't great. Also, there were 2 credits scenes. The first was kinda cool with a funny cameo but the 2nd was absolute garbage! I doubt a sequel gets made and wonder what it'll do for Sony's plans for their non-Spider-Man Universe? 5.5/10


Found it and just read to DW

We enjoyed it a bit more, could go 6.5....we enjoyed the humor.
