the mist - the movie was near perfect imo... just that damn cgi was so horrible, i dont know who frank darabont has doing his cgi but they need to fired... it wasnt so bad through the haze and the smoke... but that tentacle that comes in under the rolling garage door in the back room was like something out of xena warrior princess... it took me out of the film entirely. thankfully the rest of the film was absolutely fantastic to bring me back in. ....
thats not the first time frank darabont let some really horrible cgi into his creations... the green mile was fantastic but the cgi was ugly and horrible, even when the CDC building in walking dead season one spoiler blows up it looks like polygonal crap... i just dont get it..
i also recently watched
Simon killer - everything about the film was good but all the news around the net claimed it was horribly disturbing and shocking .... i went in with too high of expectations and my guard up but wasnt really all that shocked... guess i built it up too much ...but it was still a really well made film... martha marcy may marleen was way more traumatizing and interesting by comparison.
I still can't watch Fulci's House by the Cemetery without wishing horrible death upon that fucking kid.... but I think I'm just annoyed with whoever did the English voiceover for him. I hate it. It really bothers me, for some reason.
But I like the film itself, so I don't know what my problem is.
H20 isn't perfect but the finale & ending are fucking great. Too bad Resurrection came along and shit all over that. The movie still could've been decent enough brainless slasher fun but Busta Rhymes sucks every single bit of fun out of the movie.
Seeing one of my favorite slasher villains getting his ass kicked by a rapper turned actor makes me sad.
At least Steve Miner didn't have LL Cool J unleashing some kung fu moves on Michael.
I just watched Munger Road; it wasn't much of a horror film to begin with, but to end it with a "To be continued", like a two-part episode of Happy Days?!?! I don't care if I spoil this for anyone, trust me, I'm saving you time you'd never be able to get back!!!
