Bio: I like watching movies purely for entertainment,
so I tend not to care if it's a "good film" "a Classic"
or about style, technique, or whatever.
All I ask is MAKE IT ENTERTAINING!

76 T9 Bong ga (2007) - Jan 17, 2018
"This is a fun movie. It's a bit over the top and implausible but that didn't detract from my enjoyment. The main three leads were great the story was serviceable and the ending was very satisfying."
32 T2 Le revenant (1903) - Jan 17, 2018
"Yet another in a long line of Georges Méliès wacky ghost comedies. This one is a bit better than most."
80 T9 Shock Wave (2017) - Jan 16, 2018
"This is a solid Crime thriller with great acting. The movie has a simple set up and approach and yet because of the directing, pacing and performances it doesn't need any twists or surprises. Another big plus is how emotionally I was invested in the story and even some of the minor characters in addition to the main cast."
40 T2 The Dragon Murder Case (1934) - Jan 15, 2018
"Warren William is no William Powell. The mystery isn't very good nor is the whole premise, the whole thing reminded me of a Scooby-Doo episode. Some of the characters were fun and the whole thing only took about an hour so it never really had a chance to drag."
80 T9 Dream Dimension Hunter Fandora (1985) - Jan 14, 2018
"A fast paced anime with some surprising depths. This is the kind of anime I miss, the mid-Eighties to Early Nineties had some of the best anime, it seemed like they could and would do anything. This was no exception. And while the ending was not quite satisfying it was good enough."
30 T2 Zomvideo (2011) - Jan 14, 2018
"This is stupid, shitty and ridiculous and it knows it. Part of it's charm it that it doesn't try to be anything else than what it is, but even so this runs about 20 minutes too long and over stays it's welcome."
76 T9 Dracula (1979) - Jan 14, 2018
"The washed out color palette, the sets, the atmosphere, the performances, all these are amazingly done. The changes to the story threw me at first but I soon grew mesmerized by this retelling. The effects were well handled and were strangely alluring. The film does fall into Romance novel territory at one point with a truly bizarre love scene. The worst part of this movie was the animal noises that they added in for Dracula especially at the end."
60 T5 Women of the Night (1948) - Jan 13, 2018
"The fact that this kind of thing actually happened and continues to happen all over the world is sad. Unfortunately I couldn't really get into the film and even at around 80 minutes I felt like it dragged on especially during the middle."
50 T4 Deliver Us from Evil (2014) - Jan 13, 2018
"The biggest fault with this movie is not Eric Bana surprisingly but the fact that it tries too hard. The crime drama parts work well done and are fully fleshed out but the horror aspects were lacking and no amount of loud music and shaky cam could fix that. Not terrible but kind of dull and never remotely scary."
46 T3 Inbred (2011) - Jan 13, 2018
"Starts off decent enough and has some pretty good gore and effects however these are some of the most passive characters I've ever seen. In addition none of the "torture games" stuff was interesting and all attempts fell flat."
