Bio: My reviews are a collection of the movies I have seen since 2005. The scores I give mean everything and nothing. Mostly nothing. Unfortunately, I don't have the ability to discern the difference between a '75' and '80', so I just pick numbers at random.
|55 T4||Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988) - Nov 04, 2017
"There's no reason for the 7th entry into the Jason franchise to be as good as it is. Let's be straight -- it's still mediocre. But, damn, was expecting terrible and got mediocre. That's pretty good! "
|100 T10||The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) - Nov 04, 2017
"My favourite horror film. Love how each scene just feels so grimy. Also, major props to Hooper making the dude in a wheelchair the most unsympathetic character in the whole film. That's very progressive of him!"
|70 T6||Carrie (1976) - Nov 04, 2017
"I like this film, but I wonder how much more I would have enjoyed this if I went in knowing nothing about it? Like, this film is so engrained into pop culture, and I have seen the remake, that I knew the basic outline of the story. Oddly, the same thing happened to me with "Rear Window", and it wasn't until my second viewing that I realized how much I loved the film. Maybe that'll happen here? "
|85 T9||Army of Darkness (1993) - Oct 29, 2017
"As a kid, I remember seeing this on cable and instantly being drawn to how ridiculous it looked. I think it was during the scene where the skeletons were storming the castle. It looked so cheesy yet...alluring? When we think of Ash, this film's Ash is what we think about. "
|95 T10||Evil Dead II (1987) - Oct 29, 2017
"Evil Dead II is more of a slapstick comedy than horror. The film never slows down, and just keeps ramping up the ridiculousness. "
|75 T7||Raw (2017) - Oct 29, 2017
"A cannibal film for the whole family! "
|5 T1||Jason X (2002) - Oct 27, 2017
"This is not a fun bad film. Basically feels like a Canadian made-for-TV film. It's like someone saw "Alien" and said, "let's make that, but shitty". "
|70 T6||The Host (2006) - Oct 25, 2017
"A fun monster film, seemingly mixing a few genres into one. "
|80 T8||The Meyerowitz Stories (2017) - Oct 16, 2017
"It's amazing how good of an actor Adam Sandler is when he can be. He is able to convey fragility and sweetness without much effort. To be fair, this does appear in his comedy work, but it's usually accompanied with a bad film. I liked this film, even if it feels like well-trodden ground. I enjoyed the complexity of Dustin Hoffman's character."
|40 T3||Jerry Before Seinfeld (2017) - Oct 16, 2017
"I only made it through half of this special. Just not my style at all. "
