The House of the Devil on Netflix. Very old school feel horror movie. Very slow, but didn't quite hit me with the horror like I thought it might. A couple violent parts (one took me by surprise with how sudden it was), but not terrible.


That movie does a fantastic job of not only making you feel like it's definitely set in the 80s but also gives you the feel that it was actually filmed in the 80s as well. Not a particularly spectacular movie but definitely worth seeing because it really sets the bar for "retro/nostalgia". Also, the fact that they did this... The House of the Devil (VHS/DVD Bundle)

The spiritual successor/followup to The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers, on the other hand is just plain terrible. I didn't even finish watching it I was so bored with it.

I thought it said it was made in...2005 or something, but while I was watching it, I had to double check on IMDB that it wasn't just a re-release or something. It just felt so much like an old 80's movie that it had me completely fooled. I don't know how they have the film look the way it does, but damn if it wasn't a great nod to those olden days.

Snow White and the Huntsman

thought every one was casted perfectly except for Kristen Stewart (as Snow White). She seriously doesn't change her expression at all during the entire movie. I was actually getting mad at her for not expressing any emotion when the movie was trying to get better but her performance was awful.

Nevertheless, even with her awful acting, the movie exceeded my expectations. I would even buy it (if it's cheap enough).

Cabin In The Woods

Sorry Cabin fans, but this was one of the worst movies I've seen, I just did not understand what they were gong for. Was it trying to make fun of the horror genre? I rather watch a REAL actual horror film.

Ben Affleck's winning streak continues. Gone Baby Gone is still his best work IMO, but this was a very well done movie.

Duh Green Lantern - 2/10

Considering, I knew it had Ryan Reynolds and I didn't have any expectations this was going to be any good at all it wasn't as bad as I thought I suppose...

Dredd - good, shame it's not doing better in the box office


Dredd 3d and it was violent and graphic and gory....and I loved it.


I just can't believe this got as much positive reviews as this... wtf.

Sinister - Very unsettling and creepy movie. Actually scary unlike a lot of horror movies. I was really looking forward to it and it delivered unlike the last horror movie I was excited for that turned out to be a huge letdown (Silent House).

i agree it was confusing thematically. Homage, Parody, or Genre expanding.. it's never really clear.

The new Silent Hill movie trailer actaully looks pretty good. Looks like they're going with a loose adaptation of the first game combined with elements from the third game.

Little late to the party but I saw Lawless about a week ago. I enjoyed it. I have never been anti-Shia so he didn't bother me. The violence was pretty heavy when there was any action. The main villain really kept me on my toes cause you never knew how far he would go to further his agenda.

just rewatched Green Lantern.. :shake: it's such a bloody shame. Green Lantern is a good character but they just ruined it. Way too much CGI and I double checked the plot literally doesn't make sense. Contemplating putting up a blog about it but I kinda want more. I like Green Lantern just not this movie.

They'd be better off doing it as an animated movie, actually a lot of these superhero movies would do better in animated form. The DCAU movies are usually pretty good, better than these mufti-million dollar live action films.

I thought it was a fun movie that had a lot of promise, but they kept waffling everything and dumbing it down. Personally, I still think John Stewart would've been a better choice than Hal Jordan. Knowing Hollywood, they probably would've casted Will Smith...lulz

That scene was pretty hardcore and they didn't even show any blood/gore. I think Sinister is on the list of my favorite horror movies now and possibly favorite movies in general.

I agree. That movie was a lot better than expected. I really enjoyed it.

Just saw a movie in the theater for the first time since Pometheus. Watched 7 Psychopaths with my friend.

It was all over the place, but in the end I think I'm glad I watched it. Definitely not cliche! I don't know if I can recommend it to the general public - only to people that I personally know would like that kind of movie. Overall, In Bruges (by same writer) was better, IMO.

The Avengers .... Hate to say it but I was not impressed. Don't get me wrong, I love superhero movies and this one was ok, I just felt it could have been better.

The buildup in the first half of the movie was pretty disappointing to me.

Maybe my opinion was skewed because I hold all superheros now to the standard of Iron Man. I thought Iron Man 1 was exceptionally well done.

I enjoyed The Avengers, but just as a good popcorn movie. Some good action, good one liners etc. Overall an entertaining experience. But nothing mind blowing or anything I'd watch over and over. I'll probably buy it on Blu at some point, but not for more than $10.

I'm the complete opposite when it comes to The Avengers. And maybe it's because I'm enamored with the universe, as well as used to Joss Whedon. I thought the movie did most of the things (action, witty banter, emotional motifs, among others) pretty well, and juggles the star-studded, ensemble cast without particularly leaving anybody out.

And yeah, you could make the argument that Hawkeye needed more time, but he's just a dude with a bow and arrow. Albeit, a cool ass dude. Sure it had it's problems, but what movie doesn't? But each person has their own likes and dislikes, and I get that, while others don't.
