Jacob's Ladder, a psychological horror film where a Vietnam soldier thinks he sees demons among New York City.

Yes, this is a highly recommended movie. It is constantly putting the viewer off-balance. Are the visions real, or are they merely the product of PTSD?

Or are they the product of a drug? Find out in the twist at the end!

Yes, an absolute mind-bender. Both, Tim Robbins and Elizabeth Peña were spectacular in their respective roles.

Well I watched Scream 4, then I watched Scream 1 and 2. Scream 1 I had seen a couple of times before, I thought I'd seen 2 but I guess not, it must have been 3 at some point. 

 

I gained a new appreciation for how great the first movie is, and how difficult it was to replicate. The sequels are not awful but they are more contrived and 4 really got pretty silly.

 

The first movie was Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson's fucking A-game creating a movie that lives up to the legacy of everything from Psycho to Deep Red to Halloween. It's kind of a shame that it doesn't actually reference giallos at all really because a lot of its great direction follows that style far more than the typical slasher (Mind you that could be said of Halloween as well), and the creepy performance by Skeet Ulrich as Billy is I think undervalued. 

 

I am not sure if its opening scene has actually been surpassed by any horror movie since 1996, it's fucking perfect. 

 

Before those I always watched another Craven movie, The Serpent & The Rainbow and that one was great. I find voodoo to be an interesting subject and it presented it in a more detailed manner than it usually is in movies.

Godzilla vs Kong

 

CONTAINS SPOILERS! I just finished watching this film on HBO Max a few minutes ago. Overall I liked it. It's probably my favorite of the American Godzilla trilogy. A large part of it has to do with focusing a lot less on the human characters, which have been pretty poorly handled in all of these films. Though I will admit that the the characters here are by far the best of the 3 films, especially Kaylee Hottle as Jia who has an interesting bond with Kong. The real stars of this film of course are Godzilla & Kong, with the main focus being on Kong. Each monster has a unique personality that shows through during the films runtime. The visual design of this film was quite good. As much as I hated the 2014 Godzilla film I have to admit that Gareth Edwards has a keen eye for interesting shots & good cinematography, something that was sorely lacking in Godzilla King of the Monsters save for a few key moments. The biggest aspect about this film that I disliked was just how weird it is, now I've seen every single Godzilla film so far, so I know how bizarre that the classic films got in the past, but considering that this series started off from a fairly grounded standpoint it's so strange to see the hollow earth realm & Mechagodzilla just 3 movies in. Still though if you are looking for a film that has giant monsters duking it out in the middle of a large city & not much else then you are sure to have a lot of fun with this movie.

  I saw "Hail Satan?". "Hail Satan?" is a documentary kind of movie. It has a lot of good artwork, and it sounds pretty good. I mean the audio is well done.

      I recommend watching this if only for your pure interest in the occult. If you like vampires or cults or any kind of body piercing/mutilation stories, this was a pretty good movie/documentary. One thing I liked about "Hail Satan?" was how it put Satanism into more perspective for me. I like seeing how the people who were being interviewed didn't look like poor people, which if you've been on the Satanic internet for five minutes only, you probably have noticed how Satanists look ultra poor and discernible. "Hail Satan?" production doesn't look very poor, and isn't offensive from tell-tale signs of low income. Another thing I liked about "Hail Satan?" was that it had accents of American politics, which is absent from a lot of movies and media today.

    You might not like this if you are easily offended by Satan, Religions other that Christians, or a cute, cuddly stuffed animal that might be hand sewn, like a Muppet.

 

Watch this one.

Ive recently seen the movie Waxwork, a 1988 horror film which revolves around a mysterious wax museum that appears in an american suburb where some teenaged classmates become curious and investigate it. Long story short, the owner of the museum is evil and traps the guest's souls by inducting them into the frozen scenes displaying the wax figures. It's a really interesting idea and a cult classic, however it bombed critically and lost almost 2.2 million dollars. I thought it was ok, not bad, but pretty cheesy.

Watched Transformers 4 with some friends all knowing it's bad because we wanted to see a bad movie, and damn is it a bad movie for every reason you would assume it's bad. The main characters all have like a really random argument about age of consent where one of them pulls out a flash card for the laws for it in their state, and this whole scene just blew my mind away with how in my face horrible it was.

After watching that I decided to watch the 1984 transformers movie to I dunno, get the bad taste out of my mouth or something.

I don't know, it's been so long since I've seen a proper movie. Not like I'm interested in them, anyways.

Horrible Bosses. Judge me all you want. I just wanted something dumb to be running in the background while I was working.

Alien 3.

 

Seen it a fair times before, but this time I actually appreciated it. Despite not being as good as the first 2, it is actually a good film in its own right, Fury 161 is a proper shit hole but was a great stage/setting for the film. Acting is half decent as well.

Just saw Inception.   That was a good mindjob.

 

Pretty sure I've been three levels deep before.   Dream within a dream within a dream.

I just finished Godzilla: King of the Monsters. It was a massive improvement over the previous movie, which was a boring, overly serious slog. The movie is noticeably dumber than the previous one, but I think that plays to the film's strengths as it focussed more on giant monsters fighting each other. Some of the dialogue here was unintentionally humorous at times. But as was the case previously, the film suffers from taking itself too seriously and trying to get us to care about people that aren't worth caring about. There's one character who does something unforgivably evil and insane and is given a redemption arc that felt completely unwarranted. 

 

I'm kind of baffled as to why this movie has a lower RT and IMDB score than the previous Godzilla movie. It's still mindless and shallow, but decently entertaining when it isn't trying to get us to empathize with its human characters.

Been rewatching a few on Blu-Ray. 

Berserk (97)

The Fog (80)

Mortal Kombat (95)

Robocop (87)

Still got The Running Man to go, BR really does breath life into old films, I'm trying to replace my favourites slowly.

The Running Man is pretty great. Blu rays are also great, especially since Discotek released Devilman Lady on the format. :P

 

I watched The Shining last night. Great movie, though I do find it to be a bit weirdly paced. Jack Nicholson plays Jack Torrance like he's nuts already from the first frame you see him, and jokes aside I do think there's a scene with him that comes too early where you think "yeah why isn't he just getting the axe now?" Stephen King's main reason for disliking the film was the excision of the intended arc for Jack Torrance, and from a narrative point of view it does feel like there's things missing from the story, so whilst I would rate it high in most respects as a horror movie, I do tend to be a story guy and so it kinda falls short of the top tier for me.
