    I think I'll be getting this for the poster that comes with the pre-order



    Right, 'cause the world is just buzzing about this 4th entry to an already tired franchise. I can't seem to go anywhere without hearing about Jurassic World. It's the next Hunger Games.

    $30 - $40 million opening weekend if they're lucky, and then out of existence it will quickly go. Count on it.

        Then it's my job to teach them how to do it, how they will be able to master a rockhard dick with their skillfull tongue - simple. I did that once, I'll do it again, no prob for Santa.

          I was kinda Israeli torture-porn. The premise being [SPOILER]a suspected pedophile/child killer is kidnapped by the father of a victim and tortured with a police detective involved as well.[/SPOILER] I thought it was reasonably acted and directed, I just felt the story lacked depth. Plus, it goes a little too much in dark comedy at bizarre times, which detracted from the story. Still, it was pretty good, and had some brutality to it. And of course an ironic ending.

          • Night Train to Terror (1985)-8/10



            Anthology film about God & Satan discussing the fate of 3 individuals on a train.

            The three stories are from 3 unfinished/unreleased/truncated films and they definitely feel like edited versions at times (especially the 2nd story) but the bizarre nature of it all makes it definitely worth watching.

            Tag to that lots of gore, stop motion monsters and one of the cheesiest musical dance number ever committed to film.

            For 80's cheese fans only.

            • Zombi 3 - 7/10

              Super corny (some hilaribad acting) but a ton of fun... cool story (that I suppose you can try to fit in with this... "series") and solid effects/gore. Had a blast with this!

              The Boogey Man II (aka Revenge of the Boogeyman) - 3/10

              This may have been a lot better if 1/2 of it wasn't just flashbacks from the first movie... tack on a few decent scenes and what we have is... well a super lazy movie that is for lovers of bad movies.

                • Noroi: The Curse (2005)

                  I would be lying if I said I wasn't a little let down with this after hearing all of the praise and constant dick riding of this movie whenever found-footage gets brought up but despite being a tad disappointed I can see why Noroi is so highly touted around here. There's a very heavy sense of dread and misery (which Asian filmmakers seem to be able to construct on a whim) and as with most Japanese films that play a lot on the culture of the country and its people, I experienced heavy confusion and uneasiness at various points during the more quiet moments that seemingly didn't have any connection to the paranormal. The various settings and lack of any real characters or emotions in them conduced a potent and CONVINCING feeling of dislocation very similar to that found in Pulse or The Grudge which I assume can't be easy to accomplish.

                  But eventually the lack of characters ends up being a problem anyway. Lots of people die in this movie, but only after we briefly meet them. We don't even get to know much about the protagonists we do spend a lot of time with so because of this and the lack of "big" scares the majority of the fear stems from the aforementioned tone and mystery surrounding "The Curse". This approach is a gamble as it can either leave the viewer feeling freaked the fuck out, or a bit cold once the credits start rolling. Sad to say, I felt the latter.

                  Solid but da Blair Witch it is not

                  7/10


                  Put "2 Fast 2 Furious" in B&W and Se7en thinks he's watching a Bergman film.
                  I find the Metal Gear Solid series to be mediocre at best.

                      Hard to rate. The acting is pretty poor across the poor. The story is your standard slasher stuff, and the pacing isn't so hot. The kills, however, are pretty fun, and the film just has a certain charm to it. Cheesy, goofy, corny, and just downright weird. The new Blu-ray is damn impressive. Looks much better than the DVD from the old box set.
                      But but but...the ending! It pretty much shocked me, after the movie managed to lure me into a mediocre state of mind which I usually get when watching mediocre horror movies. It instantly brought me back up but then...movie was suddenly over.

                        I got the Arrow Blu of this and was a tad disappointed, it's decent and worth the watch but it's tough to live up to that cover art .

                        It's annoying because this had decent actors and a good setting but relied so fucking heavily on cliche. Shame because it should have been much better.

                          It's hard for ANY film to live up to Arrow cover art. Shit is phenomenal

                          • Motel Hell is overrated in my opinion. It's Ok. I've got the DVD. Don't think I'll double dip on it. Has some great scenes, some OK ones and some shit.

                            Nosteratu: The Vampyre

                            Somehow this comes off as a masterful remake of the German classic, and at the same time, a more straight forward work of 'Dracula'. It's VERY slow and atmospheric much like the 1922 film. With an amazing score and some nice acting (mixed with some not-so-fine acting). I started off watching the German version, but hearing Dracula not talk English with a cool accent was lame, so I switched it to English (do note, it's not dubbed, they filmed every scene twice, in German and again in English). Only one performance is dubbed in each version (Lucy for English, and Reinfield for German).

                            Something I REALLY loved about it was once Dracula landed in Germany.. The amount of death, confusion and plague stricken townsfolk... Wow. I don't think I've seen ANY Dracula film where his evil is leaking out everywhere, like in this... The entire city is like a quarantine zone. It's so, so fucking dark and gloomy.. Nice.

                            Kinski (who I love) plays an absolutely depressed Dracula.. He seems so very tired, so very alone and weary of life... Like the spark has long since diminished and he is just simply surviving day-to-day rather than living. That is.. Until he spies Mrs. Harker and he again feels the emotion of having something to strive for, something to fight for.

                            It also shines some light on the ending, as to why Dracula (or, Orlok in the original) is so damn fucking blind as to why the sun is rising (something I always criticise the original for). This, as well as some absolute wonderful direction, with a phenomenal score, and some high class performances, aided by some GREAT re-do's of iconic scenes from the original make this a powerhouse of a film.

                            It's not something I'll watch often, but something I can see myself watching every year, or second year. It is masterful film making. The transfer (BFI Streelbook) is OK. Some scenes look great, the night scenes have a lot of grain, not a bad thing but could of used less to make the film flow better. It annoys me when a film bounces between clear, and grain... Pick ONE! Apparently the Arrow one looks like a digital wash, something that wouldn't aid a film like this.

                            Great film. 9.5/10

                            The Zombie Horror Picture Show

                            Boss concert from Mr. Zombie.. Looks and sounds GREAT on Blu. It's a shame he couldn't use all his stage props here when I saw him earlier in the year, stupid festivals. Anyway, this is a great concert for any fan. Some of his best songs, though not all in my opinion, some fucking hot ass chicks, a lot of which get their boobs out (yay!).

                            Zombie doesn't stop, doing great for his age, and John 5 is still a fucking legend. I do think it could of been longer though, he only played for an hour and 20ish minutes, the fuck is that Rob? Lazy cunt.

                              You are not only the biggest internet bitch ass cunt I know, but also a great reviewer - from time to time at least. Now I am kissing your fugly ass, ewww.
                              Needless to say I love this film as much as you do, never getting tired of it. Didn't know that they did shoot scene twice. Did you get that info out of the commentary track?

                                Thanks! I've actually been told several time my writing is pretty decent... I just can't be fucked half the time.

                                And no, I found out about it when I was googling which is best to watch, as if the English one was all dubbed i would of stood clear of it.

                                20th Centry Fox wanted the film too. And since Herzog had a mostly International cast, who could speak both German and English, they filmed two versions of the film. Apparently there are some minor camera angle changes, but overall they are identical. The two people who are dubbed (one person in each version), their accents were too strong either in English, or German for most people to pick up. So they are dubbed. Which again, is Reinfield in the German version, and Lucy in the English.
