I'm sorry if I don't get too excited by the valorous efforts of Tom Cruise to give people exactly what they want and get reimbursed extraordinary for it. This is the kind of bravery that all too...

It probably does come off like that at times, but other times it felt like a low rent Bergman chamber piece. And I was rarely bored during those moments even if they weren't the best.

The lecturing stuff doesn't always work, but it's also very much those elements that I find make it feel like it is something different. No, not entirely 'unique', but they give it a lilt, an accent,...

I've definitely seen Iron Eagle.

I'm pretty sure I've seen Top Gun.

I generally talk more about Fulci (as he's the hardest one to really come to terms with), and the Argento's I love I nearly worship, but I almost feel that it is unquestionable that the best of the...

Beyond the Door > Beyond the Door 2


Both quality works though.



Also, wasn't Rabid Dogs Bava's last. Or was that a different director? Or was it just released later? Otherwise, Rabid...

Re: Wooley's Halfway To Halloween III

Lepterica would be another example of a film that I feel is littered with clumsy moments that don't necessarily 'work', but that I overall really liked. I guess for some, these wonkier moments will...

My basic take. The trailer, which I've honestly never really concentrated on as it played in the background, just looks garish and overdone. It also gives me the vibes of a movie that aspires to...

Re: Rock's Cheapo Theatre of the Damned

I have like zero interest in seeing this movie. But I also had zero interest in seeing The Matrix when that came out.

Lake of Dead is good. It provides enough atmosphere that I couldn't care less if some elements don't 'pay off'. If two thirds of a movie is good, it's a good movie. Lethargic beginnings, convoluted...

It's well made. It's entertaining. But I wasn't in love with it or anything.

And yes, that was meant to be a two sentence reply. But I got lost in a time continuum again waiting for a bus. At least this time I didn't miss it and have to spend 60 dollars on a bus to work
