Bio: movies are fun

despite what my tiers may say i generally enjoy most movies i see to some extent. 30 and below is when it gets abrasive

i usually don't rate TV shows. i plan to make a separate account for those to avoid clutter. i do, however, rate the TV shows of my favorite directors on this account just to clear those entries off their pages.

i tend to go in and out of movie obsession phases. if i haven't updated for a long time, don't worry, i'll be back.

"Boy, oh boy, it sucks how you can't rely on professional critics for horror. Especially old works like this that barely get reevaluated. Old codgers complaining a horror movie is too "dreary" and "depressing" does nothing to give you an honest take on The Amityville Horror's quality. Then it ends up just being decent. The Shining would end up taking a lot of its subjects and blowing the lid off both their intensity and subtlety just a year later. Still, it's worth acknowledging which came first."
75 64% Buried (2010) - Aug 05, 2018
"Your mileage may vary since the concept of being buried alive terrifies me, but as far as I'm concerned Buried does a fine job of narrowing in on that sense of helplessness. This isn't my ideal take on the premise, particularly because of some directing choices. Having a busy musical score isn't how you emphasize lonely silence, obviously, and some of the trick zoomed-out camera perspectives help stylize the monotony a bit but also reveal the set's artifice and the safety of the outside world."
55 21% [Rec] 2 (2009) - Aug 04, 2018
"[Rec] 2 wastes no time showing it understands nothing about what made the original work. [Rec] succeeded with its relatively plausible story. Immediately the infection is changed from a virus to a literal demon blood disease, and the devil employs his timeless weapon of angsty teenage swearing. This was destined to not be as good due to being a continuation - drama doesn't escalate, it picks up where it left off. Realistic characters are gone, replaced with irrational idiots and senseless plot."
