The way I see it is as a missed opportunity. Cruelty and violence without explanation and clear motivation is (for me) acceptable if it served the theme or the plot, or if it hints towards something...

Ooh, I disagree with that. I thought it was the worst. The first segment was decent enough, with the best ending of them, but the rest, eh. The Indonesian director's short here was barely horror, and...

From the movies Thief mentionned, you might want to watch Colossus: The Forbin Project. Absolute top shelf sci-fi. I don't think I've seen anything else. I'd have to double check with my watchlist.

Mulholland Drive. I gave it a D rating the first time, and A the second. I did not get what I was looking at.

If you have it right now, can you tell me if they restocked the original Goosebumps series? That's the one good thing I had left to watch there, and they removed it.

Re: Movies you thought were really wierd

Death Bed: The Bed That Eats is such a puzzling movie. You'd expect 70's schlock with a badly articulated bed, but what you get is immitation Tarkovsky.

Wading through the sea of terribleness that is 50's sci-fi, I would never have expected I Married A Monster From Outer Space to be one of the genuinely good ones. I expected 10 tons of cheese outta...

Re: How do you judge films and how much you care about directing?

As far as technique goes, I don't like having to do too much work to notice things. I know the big lines of technical stuff, so I know when the movie is using these, and it's important that they use...
