Most recent movie you saw

Black Widow. For Johansson’s final outing as Black Widow this was pretty disappointing. I didn’t know there would be so much family drama in this movie. Geez all I wanted was a Black Widow movie where she kicks ass, but no she barely does even that.

 

My fiancée said it best “it’s an action movie, but not a Marvel movie.” Probably one of the weaker Marvel movies. 6/10

Seven Samurai.

 

Pretty long, very good, great performance from Toshio Mifune. 

Fun fact: originally there were only going to be six samurai and Mifune was to play the elder one. Glad Kurosawa added a new character though. "You know Kikuchyo is a little girl's name, right?"

the crazies, from 1973. it was a lot more comedic than i was expecting, it was kind of a mix between night of the living dead and dr. strangelove

Bill and Ted Face The Music. It's not bad. Some funny moments. Not as memorable as the first movie, but it's slightly amusing. 7/10.

Yeah, but I thought it was an interesting take on the series. I mean, when Bill broke the neck on Ted's guitar in the first ten minutes, and the last 80 minutes are just Ted going on a massive revenge shooting spree, it really reminds you of how people can change over time.

 

For the record I haven't seen it. I probably should sometime, but without Carlin/Rufus, it seems like it would feel hollow.

Finished the new Evangelion. Given that it went through a decade or so of development hell, I came in expecting disappointment, but I ended up being pleasantly surprised, and I'll go on to say that it's the only film in the franchise I'd consider legitimately impressive since EoE (which was all the way back in 1997, for the uninitiated). Wasn't perfect, the CGI was very bad in a handful of scenes, even if overall it's a lot better than what I've come to expect, and I definitely do not remember there being this many gratuitous ass shots in the previous entries, but it's definitely on the better end of things I've seen in the last couple of years.

Well, I watched two movies since I last posted, but I bought a whole lot more and I just feel like listing that, because I am going to make my way through these. 

 

I watched "What Have You Done To Solange?" and "Four Flies on Grey Velvet". I had seen the latter before, on Amazon Prime, I decided on reflection I liked it enough to want to see it again so I got the blu ray release. And I saw a trailer on that for a movie called "Dellamorte Dellamore: The Cemetary Man". It looked fucking bonkers and I have to see it. So I got that too and also the same distributor releases of "The Case of the Bloody Iris" and just today, "The Psychic". Italian thriller cinema has really become a guilty pleasure of mine. And also on top I decided I wanted to see some Hammer horror stuff because I've never really seen many so, the rest include

 

The Vampire Lovers

Lust for a Vampire

Twins of Evil

Hands of the Ripper

The Case of the Scorpions Tail

Blood on Satan's Claw

Beyond Re-Animator

The Masque of the Red Death

 

I saw the last one before, many years ago on late night TV, I remember it being great, and one of Vincent Price's best movies. Should be fun to go through all those, along with some still sitting there, have been for a while.

Finally saw Wally's Wonderland! The whole thing felt like the filmmaker's elaborate excuse to showcase Nicholas Cage's crazy acting, and it worked! Highly enjoyable!

Went on hammer binge recently myself, bought all the Dracula ones and Twins of evil. The TV series has some good episodes as well. 

 

Grew up watching Hammer films so it's easy to see through the jank (night time filmed at day etc) and really enjoy them.

Re-watched Rob Zombie's Halloween, that is the 2-Disc Special Unrated edition. It was still as awesome as the last time I saw it.

I just watched The Long Halloween Part 1. I have not read the comic but I might, I kinda feel in the mood for some Batman again, especially when it's as moody and dark as that story was.

Just finished watching Halloween (1978) and Halloween (2018), looking forward to Halloween Kills if it ever sees the light of day!

The 1979 Soviet film "Stalker".

 

I don't know why I decided to watch that film, I didn't think I would enjoy such a slow moving film, but I decided watch it anyway and I actually did enjoy it quite a lot!

Although - despite it being a very serious film, there was one part in the film that for some reason made me laugh out loud:

Spoiler

When the trio finally get to the entrance of the wish-granting room - The Professor pulls out a metallic cylinder. The other two guys ask him what it is and he meekly replies: "It's a bomb.". I don't know why, but that scene was really funny to me.

Surprisingly - that scene is followed up by my favorite scene from the film - the part where The Writer realizes and tells everyone how the wish-granting room actually works.

Candyman. One of the very best horror movies I've ever seen by far. Interested to see the new one now.

 

Yeah that one is great. 

 

I just watched Phantom of the Paradise, and that was a blast, really enjoyed it.

I still can't stop thinking about it. It was fantastic on all levels. Great characters, performances, atmosphere, soundtrack, lighting effects, and a whole lot more. I already want to watch it a second time.

Try the book it was based on if you haven't already. 'Roadside Picnic'  it's only a short read. 

I need to watch the film :D

Karate Kid III. Now I'll be able to watch Cobra Kai series next!

there is actually a karate kid IV, still with Pat ''Miyagi-San'' Morita, but no Ralph Macchio.
This time, Miyagi trains a girl, Hilary Swank.
Not as good as Karate Kid I and II, but slighty better or at the same level of III.

Probably not related to Cobra Kai, actually.
But maybe i'm wrong as i didn't watched the serie.

Candyman 2021. It was good but not great. It kind of went off the rails a bit at the end. I can see why critics loved it but audiences were mixed on it.

I hated Candyman 2021. As someone who really liked the first movie and doesn’t mind the first sequel, this movie is TERRIBLE!! Having Tony Todd in the movie for 10 seconds was ridiculous and what he was given to do was nothing special, movie wasn’t scary I knew exactly what was gonna happen and my biggest issue with it was: it felt like set up for another Candyman movie that may or may not happen. 
 

I guess the one good thing I can say about it is at least it wasn’t a remake. It clearly wants to be the Halloween 2018 of Candyman and it’s NOT. Heck even Halloween ‘18 was a bit overrated. The actors seemed fine enough too. It’s not their fault the script sucked. Also I kept hearing the movie was racist, but I never saw it as such. It dealt with race as much as the original did if it had anything to do with it at all.

 

All in all a very bad and forgettable movie.
