It's a good vampire movie. No doubts there... and I'm sure I graded it higher years ago.
I still enjoy it today, but it just doesn't have the same appeal any more.
Now, I like my vampire movies to be dark, gritty, and very little to no comedic moments.

I know I'm in the minority, but I very much enjoyed the style of 30 Days of Night.
The vampires were very animalistic in their behavior but yet, showed intelligence when they hunted. They didn't care to look clean and mingle with humans. They just wanted to feed. The movie didn't bother with the typical lore either. So no holy water, no reflection in the mirror, no being burned by contact with a cross. However, they did portray sunlight as being damaging, but that shows that they're a night creature.

I'd like to see more of this type of vampires. The Anne Rice vampires are old school.

For some reason I've never gotten around to seeing 30 days of night. One of these days…

I don't like Ann Rice vampires, unless you count the ones in the Vampire Hunter D movies as that type of vamp. I like Viktor from Underworld though and I consider him old school.

Videodrome -- 7.5 / 10

First time view. It was on TV & I've heard a lot about it, so I gave it a watch. Some meaty themes, clever symbolism & strong performances from James Woods & especially from Deborah Harry surprisingly, who looked mighty fine in this flick might I add. Croenenberg's use of macabre visuals mixed with the subject matter made for a bizarre spectacle. Stand aside Eraserhead. :lol

It took me a few watches to really appreciate it. 80s Cronenberg is some of my all time favorites, especially The Fly which is my favorite Sci-Fi film of all time. I can't believe Goldblum didn't get nominated.

There are good things about it; Cavill as Kal, some of his personal moments with his mother & with Lois, his flying sequences, cinematography in places was nicely presented etc.

The rest was a fail for me - the biggest being Russ-El & M-Shan being cast as SoupaDad & Zoid. Amy Adams is a good actress, but she's no Lois Lane. The action is one outrageous video game cut scene after another - building in ridiculousness as each minute passes. Some of the dialogue is completely out of step with the tone of the film, the Pa Costner twister moment was wtf.. etc etc.

I don't think I need to ever watch it again to be honest.

Lethal Weapon (1987) 7.4/10

They have the movies on Amazon Prime right now so I figured why not give this a watch.

The chemistry between Riggs and Murtaugh is what holds this Lethal Weapon together, but I guess you could say that about all the movies in the series. It was nice to revisit this one after not watching it for a few years. Mel Gibson still had a noticeable accent from his years in Australia. The plot is super duper thin and the action is OK but I think the only memorable action is the torture scene. I never noticed the anti-apartheid magnet on the fridge before. That made me laugh thinking about what happens in the second movie.

it does, it makes it boring because they've stuck themselves into this "believable" box. So boring that I kept dozing off. plus the CGI was crap, and only jump scares etc. fun October watch, but that's about it.


I'm also someone who thought the first Conjuring was massively over rated. "oh look a ghost in the window!?" mother****er, I've seen scarier **** at the DMV.

I was pretty familiar with both cases before watching the movies, I give them credit for following the evidence so closely. but next time, make it a bit more enjoyable.

The New World - 6.5/10

For what was in it, it was decent, but Mallick fills his movies with so much Pseudo-artistic fluff, that had he cut out the fat, he'd be lucky to have a 90 minute movie. The feeling I'm usually left with after watching a TM film, is that the Director is just so full of himself, he actually hobbles his own narrative by trying to somehow seem artistically transcendent. I mean, there are only so many shots of sunlight streaming through a hole in a hut that are needed. We get it, now let's try and tell the actual story, because the actual story is pretty good. More than I can say for Tree of Life.





For Snikt: Ben Mendhelson was in this movie, according to the credits, but his acting must have been so "transformative" that I was unable to recognize the master at work. Oh well, next time I guess.

X Men Apocalypse- 7/10 (As a comic book movie)

It's not a great film, and Apoc looks lame, but he's a better antagonist than most of the MCU villains...and MOS Zod and Enchantress in SS.

I know the hand to hand combat action in the X MEN films is not great, but the display of powers in this film is as comic book as it gets and more impressive in terms of how powerful the characters are than anything in the MCU or DCEU (so far). Apoc fighting multiple X MEN while mentally battling Xavier and Jean is great. :yess:

It's actually cool to see powerful comic characters be powerful on film even if it takes using too much crappy CGI. I hope Thanos can live up to X Men Apocalypse.

Me Before You - 7.5/10

Was the Wife's night to pick a movie, thought I was about to watch one of those nauseatingly predictable romantic dramas, I was wrong, at least to a degree. I quite enjoyed this film, it didn't go the way I expected and was amazed to see how good of an actress Emilia (Khaleesi) Clarke is. It's not a Oscar caliber performance, but she did a very solid acting job. Everyone in the film was good, it had the type of humor I appreciate, and was well made all around. I'll take this over The Notebook or (a personal facorite of my Wifes) P.S. I Love You any day.

X Men Apocalypse- 7/10 (As a comic book movie)

It's not a great film, and Apoc looks lame, but he's a better antagonist than most of the MCU villains...and MOS Zod and Enchantress in SS.

I know the hand to hand combat action in the X MEN films is not great, but the display of powers in this film is as comic book as it gets and more impressive in terms of how powerful the characters are than anything in the MCU or DCEU (so far). Apoc fighting multiple X MEN while mentally battling Xavier and Jean is great. :yess:

It's actually cool to see powerful comic characters be powerful on film even if it takes using too much crappy CGI. I hope Thanos can live up to X Men Apocalypse.

I watched this for a 2nd time last night and I find it great, 8/10. That last hour is fantastic. It just drags a bit too long in the first hour and a half, but otherwise, I like the darker tone and all that.

Definitely a controversial ending that will rub a good number of people the wrong way. I loved every minute of it.

I'd still probably lean toward an overall rating of 8/10, mostly because I honestly don't think they aspired to be anything more than an 8. Not all films will transcend their respective genres, nor should they.

Overall, I think the Russos gotta go, they're better than Whedon by far, but who isn't? Personally I'd take Favreau or Gunn over the Russos.

If you're like me and haven't watched this since it was released I highly recommend revisiting it. I rented it so that my kids could see it and my daughter gave it a score of "well that was pretty much the best movie ever." Even after watching the literal entirety of the MCU, TDK trilogy, DCEU, etc., before revisiting The Incredibles I can easily say that it still holds up. The Dash forest chase was more thrilling than any live-action Quicksilver sequence.

I'd stay it doesn't only hold up, it's better than any of those.

It's not only a perfect straight up superhero story at face value, it's a perfect post-modern deconstruction (better than both BvS and CW), a perfect satire and all that film-making 101 crap.

Like if Alan Moore, during his superhero purge period had worked for Pixar.

I just feel like he had no business being in this movie. The way he’s introduced, and the way he leaves this movie feels rushed, why did Stark feel the need to recruit this teenage kid? Especially after the whole revelation he had at the beginning of the movie with that teenager dying in AOU. How did Stark know who he was again? I missed that part, then how Spidey is taken out of the movie was just as ridiculous and really only hurts Stark’s character all together. I get it was fan service, like Wolverine was in Apocalypse, but it felt really, really forced and made very little sense, it wasn’t a good way to introduce Spidey into the MCU.

Yeah, I can see that...but he was no ordinary teenager. He was someone who could stop a 3000 pound car...or whatever Tony's line was. The way he leaves...yeah, it reminded me of QS in DOFP, but at least you can see how Spidey is not as valuable as QS, and Tony just wanted him to help in this one mission because he needed some last minute backup. If anything, Vision's absence in the final battle is worst because he's way more useful than Spidey.

I was going to mention Vision's absence as well, but the thing is, Wolverine, Prof X, and Hank actually needed real help to get Magneto out, if it weren't for QS, some of them wouldn't have made it out.

Tony hires a street level unknown for a fight he has nothing to do with, couldn't he have just brought in some extra armors that he can control? Why not wear the Hulk buster to have full advantage of the fight? Cap's team had Bucky, and Hawkeye, one of Iron Man's armors could have certainly kept them busy in a fight. There's just so many more things Tony could have done then bring some kid in that he didn't even know, blackmail him into a fight, and blackmail him out of one.

I remember thinking that the sky was the limit for Pixar after The Incredibles was first released. That they might be delving into edgier sci-fi, action, fantasy, but nope. They just make traditional Disney movies and nothing more. Finding Dory, The Good Dinosaur, and Zootopia are all pretty interchangable. There's nothing that sets a "Pixar" movie apart from a "Disney Animation Studio" film.

Zootopia isn't Pixar. Pixar is still good, I'd love to see them venture into more mature subject matter, as a kid I enjoyed sci-fi and other films that was geared more towards adults, and as long as it doesnt shock, there's no reason why kids can't see a good, straight forward film that isn't specifically designed to pander to them.

Pixar seems to balance the kiddie stuff (Cars, Good Dino) with slightly more mature kid fare (Inside Out, Up)

I disagree that Pixar has a unique style separate from Disney Animation, to me Wreck-It Ralph felt Pixar-ish and The Good Dinosaur felt Disney-esque. They really are interchangeable to me. That's not to say that they are "bad" films. They're not. I was just hoping for a little more diversity in subject matter, especially after the brilliant Incredibles.

Ghostbusters (2016) - 2.5/10

Had a free redbox rental expiring tomorrow and my soon to be 8 year old daughter asked to see this, she loves the Original and is even dressing as a Ghostbuster this Halloween. Expected to not like it, but didn't want to sour her milk before she had a chance to drink it for herself, she made it halfway through before deciding she'd rather just go to bed. My OCD made me continue to watch it...

I didn't find anything in this movie to be funny, I didn't laugh once. I did think the mannequin scene was briefly entertaining and liked the Jaws reference, but that is it. I didn't hate Leslie Jones as much as I thought I would, that honor goes to Kate McKinnon, I despised every second she was on screen. The writing is terrible, they obviously spent a lot of money on this movie, even though the aesthetic of the FX are terrible, I'm sure it still cost a good deal of money. Next time, spend that money on good writers, though I really hope there is no next time, but Sony doesn't know when to quit so there probably will be.

I didn't go in with an open mind, but I hoped it might win me over. In the end, I just hated it even more than I thought I would.

For those who enjoyed this movie, I beg of you, please put down the crack pipe.

Ghostbusters (2016) - 2.5/10

Had a free redbox rental expiring tomorrow and my soon to be 8 year old daughter asked to see this, she loves the Original and is even dressing as a Ghostbuster this Halloween. Expected to not like it, but didn't want to sour her milk before she had a chance to drink it for herself, she made it halfway through before deciding she'd rather just go to bed. My OCD made me continue to watch it...

I didn't find anything in this movie to be funny, I didn't laugh once. I did think the mannequin scene was briefly entertaining and liked the Jaws reference, but that is it. I didn't hate Leslie Jones as much as I thought I would, that honor goes to Kate McKinnon, I despised every second she was on screen. The writing is terrible, they obviously spent a lot of money on this movie, even though the aesthetic of the FX are terrible, I'm sure it still cost a good deal of money. Next time, spend that money on good writers, though I really hope there is no next time, but Sony doesn't know when to quit so there probably will be.

I didn't go in with an open mind, but I hoped it might win me over. In the end, I just hated it even more than I thought I would.

For those who enjoyed this movie, I beg of you, please put down the crack pipe.

I did laugh out loud…once. It was the scene where Higgins was flipping the bird.

The director recently said that a chunk of the budget went toward things that were tied to the movie license and not the film itself. That's why it ballooned to over 150 mil.

There's nothing that sets a "Pixar" movie apart from a "Disney Animation Studio" film.

Hmmm seems like a bit too much of a generalisation. It varies, IMO. Inside Out was one of last year's best films and far above its contemporaries.

Legend Of Tarzan - 6/10 Liked this one as well much more than I thought I would. I'm a sucker for African lore though. LOL at SLJ in this movie. A complete miscast even though I love SLJ and he was funny in it as usual. But come on. A 60 something year old man running through the jungle of Africa? Gimme a break.

Not much to say, really. If you like Gyllenhal, you'll get through it. If not... don't even bother watching. It's as by-the-numbers as it gets and it doesn't even have any entertaining characters.

The Double: 9/10

Predictable, but still very good. From the atmosphere, to the cinematography and Eisenberg's performance, it's a truly great movie. I also liked the ending, which is different from the book's, and I'm glad they went down this route. I highly recommend it.

Now You See Me 2: 7/10

It's as enjoyable as the first one. Entertaining characters, neat visual tricks and a mild but fun story. A good movie to watch at 10 PM before you go to bed.

If Disney had cast Ingruber as young Han they'd have some people convinced that they pulled another RDJ and somehow miraculously de-aged Ford for the length of an entire film. Future generations might have watched all the SW films for the first time and assumed it was all the same guy.

Oh well, casting the other fellow just makes it that much easier to keep the Ford films in their own little near perfect universe.

Yeah, really every franchise goes bad at some point. It's just the nature of the industry which is why I no longer sweat bad sequels/prequels/reboots. If you extract JUST the individual Cap movies from the MCU then I suppose we've got a rare "untainted" trilogy but really, it's only a matter of time before Marvel makes enough Captain America films that we start to get a stinker or two. There's no avoiding it. :lol

So like you (unless I'm mistaken) I take certain franchises and put each film into one of three categories:

1. Enjoyable and canon (SW, ESB, ROTJ, TFA, ALIENS)

2. Enjoyable but not canon (Alien 3, Terminator Genisys, parts of TPM)

3. Crap that isn't even close to being canon (SW PT, post 90's Die Hard, RoboCop 3, JAWS: The Revenge, etc.)

For me the jury is still out on TFA. I have trouble with aspects of it - some of which may be helped if the next two films are good. We'll see.

Alien 3 I've liked for a long time but the problem of the eggs at the start of the film is a big one. Can the film be canon when it proceeds from such a questionable starting point? The most plausible explanation I can think of is that a drone carried those eggs and planted them on the dropship when it was on the ground on LV426, waiting for Hicks and Ripley. Yet even that seems ridiculous - the notion of this sneaky Alien who plants the eggs and then scurries away without trying to attack or capture anyone - probably chuckling to itself and rubbing its hands together with mischievous glee as it flees the scene.

Totally agreed on the rest

Something that just occurred to me that the writers of Alien 3 could have done to "fix" the egg issue:

1. Say that Bishop was the one who went and got them. Hence his absence when Ripley and Newt arrived. I was thinking that maybe when she was questioning him in A3 that he could have divulged that on LV-426 Burke recited the code to deactivate his behavioral inhibitor so that Bishop would be sure to help him bring back two specimens no matter what but maybe that wouldn't have even been necessary. He was already in the process of helping Burke bring back the facehuggers after all.

Burke could have said "we're bringing back these two facehuggers, but if that proves impossible I need you to do anything you can to grab a couple of those eggs the marines stumbled upon." The damaged Bishop in A3 could have told Ripley that when he was circling the platform he spied two eggs and Burke's directive kicked in and he had to comply. His intention was to put them in quarantine immediately after landing on the Sulaco but the Queen's surprise attack ****ed that all up.

Then it could have been guilt at the damage caused by the eggs that led him to request deactivation, not a vain desire to be "top of the line." Just a couple lines of extra dialogue could have cleared the whole thing up and would have really tied the two films together.

His intention was to put them in quarantine immediately after landing on the Sulaco but the Queen's surprise attack ****ed that all up.

Then it could have been guilt at the damage caused by the eggs that led him to request deactivation, not a vain desire to be "top of the line." Just a couple lines of extra dialogue could have cleared the whole thing up and would have really tied the two films together.

Well, that would certainly go against Cameron's intentions with the Bishop character. Cameron wanted us to share Ripley's suspicion of Bishop all the way up to his final rescue of Ripley and Newt from the platform. And then there's the scene where he appears genuinely happy when Ripley compliments him right before he gets impaled by the Queen. I think Cameron intended that he really was just a lovable android all along.

Of course, Cameron also intended that Ripley, Hicks and Newt would be a family unit and Alien 3 crapped all over that anyway so I'm sure they'd have had no problem ret-conning Bishop.

I would say though that the window of 'opportunity' you mention is questionable at best - I think there's just no way. Maybe he could find some eggs on his way to the uplink tower or somewhere close to it when he was calling the dropship down.

Of course, just like Cameron changed Scott's intended lifecycle from "drones create eggs with cocooned victims" to "queen lays eggs." Ret-cons are fair game as long as they don't openly contradict what was shown on screen in the previous film. Fincher obviously wasn't interested in continuing a tale of this tight knit family with lovable android, instead he wanted a dark and depressing story where death was inevitable and the only "victory" was facing it on your own terms. To that end he just needed it to logistically connect to ALIENS since clearly the themes of the previous film were thrown completely out the window.

I wouldn't have gone that route for A3 at all but if that really was the story they were locked into then I do think that adding a sinister and previously unrealized undertone to Bishop's character would have been the most viable explanation. *He* wouldn't have been sinister per se, his programming would have simply been overwritten (or overruled) by Burke no doubt to the lovable android's chagrin.

He had a good 10-15 minutes while Ripley was off rescuing Newt. She leaves, debris starts hitting the platform, he takes off (so that his explanation is still "correct,") spies a couple unhatched eggs, swoops down and grabs them, then returns for Ripley. Sure it would be an unlikely contrivance but the important thing is that it would be possible which is what we didn't get in Fincher's film.

Eggs just lying around? He would've had to follow her in to get the eggs. I don't think there were any just sitting around on the ground near the landing platform. And he'd have to land the ship and get out of it to get the eggs too. :lol I don't think there's really any way around that particular continuity issue.

The Siege - 7/10

Bruce Willis wig - 4/10

Pretty interesting insight a few years before terrorism in Western civilization became all the rage.

The Purge: Election Year - 6/10
Ouija: Origin of Evil - 7/10
Deathsport - 6/10
Gods of Egypt -7/10 - If you can get past the bad CGI, incredibly corny comedy and the unbearable human hero, it's a good enjoyable flick.

The film implied that the drones carried eggs from the Queen's chamber and set them close to cocooned humans. So you'd have to assume that Bishop spotted an unconscious Hudson and Burke impregnated with facehuggers with two eggs sitting in front of them. Beats magic eggs appearing out of thin air.

So a fantasy flick with bad visuals and a lame hero? What on earth made it good then? :lol

It's just that even if we accept the idea of Aliens cocooning people far away from the nest and going to the trouble of bringing eggs to them it seems very unlikely this would be somewhere that Bishop would be able to see while he's in the sky piloting the dropship and unlikely again that he could land to pick them up - unless it was on the ground outside the atmosphere processing station. And that's why I suggested that maybe he could find a grouping of eggs while he was out calling the dropship down in the first place. Still seems unlikely to me but it's a little more plausible.

But it can teach us many things, like how Egypt was almost entirely populated by people with English and Irish accents.

Had the remote dropship already landed when Hicks and Ripley arrived? Or did they watch it land? I'm drawing a blank.

Gerard Butler, Jamie Lanester and all the hawt chicks. The story is interesting as well.

It was already there.
