Just like “Warm Bodies” is a RomCom that just happens to have zombies in it (man I really love that movie - cheesy af but always gives me the warm and fuzzys) :-P

 

I've actually seen that one, I don't even know why, I think someone I know must have recommended it. It does start pretty interesting but its get lamer as it goes, I heard the book its based on is better. 

 

I decided to get started early on my Halloween viewing, between now and the end of October I think I'm going to do a lot of horror watching. I started with watching Deep Red again, which is a masterpiece. Consistently creepy, unsettling and over the top in style, I feel its the perfect movie if you like a story that feels like it delves into events best left forgotten, that we uncover and understand more about the nature of everything happening piece by piece. Watching it really makes me want to try writing something in the Giallo tradition one day.

 Rewatched Resident Evil (the first one). It has been so long since I saw it, I was again very much out of the loop of what was happening. I couldn't even remember what order things happened. I remember it was like that the first time I saw it, very fast paced with a lot of action. It was released in 2001 (I think), but I just couldn't keep shaking the feeling that Taylor Swift was the lead role....She should have been any actress anyway -- boy can she SING!
  Resident Evil isn't much of a trip out. In terms of a zombie movie, I think it was ahead of its time. Shows like The Walking Dead weren't even around yet. Where would we be without ZOMBIES?

 

I say watch see it if you haven't already seen it. I know it's attained cult status at this point...a real classic.

Rewatched The Dark Tower hoping it was better on a second watch,  it still annoys me just as much with its five books in one shite.

Pan's Labyrinth. It was brilliant and may be my new favorite fantasy movie, apart from LOTR.

decided to watch all three adaptations of Dan Brown : Da Vinci's Code, Angels and Demons and Inferno. Neither is particularly good or bad, entertaining movies, good enough for a lazy sunday afternoon. (I've read Angels and Demons and I can get why he got so many followers, his writing style leads pretty well into action thrillers, but I can't say that I enjoyed it so much as to want to read more).

For no particular reason at all, I rewatched the 2005 Doom movie that had Karl Urban and Dwayne Johnson in it. Call me weird, but despite how bland and unintentionally silly that movie was, I find myself at least some what captivated by The Rock's acting in it.

Godfather Part II.

 

Even if people don't like gangster films, it is certainly well done in terms of its cinematography.

Yeah kind of lax in the film-watching department nowadays. It's quite hard to get 2 hours at the end of the day once the kids are in bed. Last movie I watched was probably The Hobbit (I'm counting all three Peter Jackson films together). Kinda meh... Not a patch on LoTR movies. Very 'cinematic' and epic, but just didn't really work. It was a kids book after all.

 

I'm queueing up Blade Runner 2049 next. High hopes for that one.

Astro Boy (2009) - I enjoyed this movie, even though it was a massive flop and generally disliked by everyone. It's kind of amazing how a sixty-five million dollar movie with countless A-list celebrity voices bombed as badly as it did, but I don't think it deserved its fate. Yeah, it's kind of by the numbers, but there wasn't really anything bad about it. I think people were just spoiled by Disney/Pixar movies at the time. 

 

Howl's Moving Castle - Couldn't really get into this at all. Yeah, it's beautifully animated, but there was way too much that was never explained. Characters would often do and say things that didn't really make any sense. Charming, sure, but not very well written.

Godfather Part 3 - Nowhere near as good as its two predecessors, which ends on a low note.  The film also felt almost like an epilogue.

 I saw the English dubbed version of Ninja Scroll for the first time. It has very good artwork. I recommend it, but with a note of caution - this movie is Rated R for sensuality. I would even say that the Japanese audio probably would have enjoyable, if all you can find is subtitles.

Cruising (1980)

 

I didn't like it overall, it was muddled and unfocused and I don't think earned what it was going for at the end. Whether that is an issue caused by the 40 minutes of footage that was cut to get its R rating originally or not, I can't say. I read conflicting viewpoints on that.

Boys Band (2002)

Nice movie about show business and problems with that. Good movie with Steve Rambo as the main role.

The 90s Mario movie would be the last recent non-series thing I've watched.

 

It may not be a good movie, but I had a lot of fun watching, how many bad movies can you say that about?

I love a cheesy bad film, Masters of the Universe, Mortal Kombat, Night of the Comet.  The Mario movie is another great one. 

 

On topic I made the missus watch Valhalla Rising, I like it but It confused her some what with the abrupt ending haha.

I re-watched The Da Vinci Code. It's passably good, even though I generally remembered the key plot points.

Spider-Man: Homecoming. I don't like avengers stuff but this one was good. I'd give it a 7/10. I liked the idea but I feel like if the avengers stuff was taken out I would have liked it just a bit more. Also everything is so weird and I hate those PC jokes in films these days. "I don't wanna go in something that was built by slaves" stfu. What I mean by everything in so weird is that I'm custom to the original films. Peter parker and all of the other characters looked really strange and unfamiliar. I understand it's a new generation, but it's definitely not my generation.

Jacob's Ladder, a psychological horror film where a Vietnam soldier thinks he sees demons among New York City. Also, the 1954 Gojira. With Surfshark VPN, I found that Japanese Netflix has many of the Godzilla movies, but most don't have English subtitles. With my conversational level of Japanese, I should understand at least some of it.

I have my ups and downs in wanting to view movies, and I've been on a down for most of this year so far. Last film I remember watching in full was The Expendables 2, which maybe isn't too much to write home about but is definitely an improvement over the first. Sometimes you just want to eat potato chips, you know?

Watched Snatch, which was great and felt like the UK's version of Fight Club. Dark gritty testosterone driven late 90s fun

Uhh... Monster Hunter I think. If you like your action movies with spectacular visuals while being dumb as a brick, I recommend it thoroughly. Just don't go if you like Monster Hunter lore because well it's a gaming movie and the odds of it being respectful to lore are, well, not good.

The original MK movie could be worse. It could be MK: Annihilation.

I have sometimes wondered about watching it myself. It is such a legendary catastrophe though that I am worried it will not live up to my expectations of being a completely hilarious disaster. Kind of like how I decided not to buy Cyberpunk 2077 immediately, then I thought the glitches are so funny I wanted to see them for myself, but then I became worried I would buy it and not get any.

I need to watch it again, it's been a long time since I've seen it, but I would say it's worth watching. It's not so terrible that it does a complete 180 and turns out great in spite of itself, however it is enjoyable to watch once or twice. But the atmosphere was like they tried to smash Bladerunner together with Demolition Man and threw Mario and Luigi in it. Which, imagine you're seven years old, and you're extremely excited because there's a Mario Brothers movie, and you beg your Mom to take you and your brother to the theater to see it. "Goombas are seven foot tall lizardmen. Yoshi isn't cute, he's an actual raptor. And Bowser is Dennis Hopper, who turns into a tyrannosaurus rex and then melts. And Mario's name is Mario Mario and Luigi's name is Luigi Mario, and that's why they're called the Mario Brothers." It was kind of a mind-fuck for a little kid.

Sounds more like a mind-fuck the whole family can enjoy and be baffled by.
