• Innocent Blood

    Innocent Blood

    ★★★★

    Oh it turns out demonic ghoul Robert Loggia is delightful. Been meaning to see this since I saw it referenced in a book about the Evil Dead series (The Evil Dead Companion, it's about the making of the first three movies and stuff) way back in the early 2000s. This is also just a nice supernatural thriller/romance/mob movie. The different colored vampire eyes can get pretty googly which adds a further layer of camp to the melodrama.

  • In Time

    In Time

    It's always fun when Cillian Murphy pops up in these sub Nolan sci fi movies like this and Transcendence. I'm not sure why they didn't have some form of password protection or whatever on their time arms so not just any random could steal their time when unconscious, it's a really flawed system.

  • Cat's Eye

    Cat's Eye

    Two stories of people overcoming torture and death to be a better person and protect the ones they love and a third story about a whimsical troll/goblin stealing people's breath. Pretty fun 80s cheese and the miniature work is impressive in the final story.

  • John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

    John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

    It's okay. Feels even more divorced from the reality the first movie had at least one foot in. John Wick is here to shoot you and interact with assassin lore. It's nice to see Halle Barry, and that Game of Thrones guy and at least these sequels gave Lawrence Fishburne some post Hannibal work. Anyway, I'm excited about that new Matrix.

  • John Wick: Chapter 2

    John Wick: Chapter 2

    Eh it's fine. Gets a little too bogged down in assassin politics and could use a leaner run time.

  • John Wick

    John Wick

    Finally getting around to watching these movies and this first movie is pretty good. Keanu sure knows how to gun kata and there's enough character actors around to keep things interesting. It's neat there's a super secret assassin club that uses Mario coins as currency.

  • Dune

    Dune

    ★★★★½

    Honestly I love this weird campy movie. It's my go to moving into a new apartment movie to watch before internet is setup and everything. Not sure when I'll get around to watching the new Dune, been having it overhyped at me on the internet before there even was a first trailer and I just can't work up much interest in half a story.
    I know Lynch pretty much disowns this, it's his Alien 3 in that way. And I wish him and Fincher would embrace their weird scifi movies even if they didn't have the best time making it.

  • Coneheads

    Coneheads

    This is a Halloween movie because my dad wore a fun coneheads head thing for Halloween when I was a kid. It's also one of the better SNL movies in general*.

    *and oh shit, Parker Posey is around in this!

  • Coyote Ugly

    Coyote Ugly

    The film that defined a generation. This movie makes being at a bar look much more exciting than it actually is.

  • Die Another Day

    Die Another Day

    Honestly this is a refreshing watch after gritty Bond. I've even liked the Madonna song since it's debut. Like, Batman there's so many ways you can make a Bond and it's always nice to keep the campy side as an option. This was also my intro to Rosamund Pike and she really makes her mark. At the time we were worn down by it, but the next next gen Bond could probably use a dose of this ridiculousness.

  • Wishmaster 4: The Prophecy Fulfilled

    Wishmaster 4: The Prophecy Fulfilled

    At least this Wishmaster sequel has a guy sort of doing a Andrew Divoff thing. Because Jason Connery is no Andrew Divoff. It's weird how Wishmaster 3 & 4 both feel like the Djinn being inserted into bad soap operas. The series really fell fast when they lost Divoff.
    Both of the latter sequels also brought angels and dumb sword fights into the series, which were not needed.

  • Halloween Kills

    Halloween Kills

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Halloween: 258/2 Days: Dream Drop Distance/Resurrection x Covenant: Final Chapter Prologue: Gaiden

    Halloween: The Monsters are Due on Haddonfield

    Was not prepared for a Loomis cameo. This doesn't feel so much a sequel as a side story. We wander in and out of the lives of the people of this damaged town exploring how one night in the 70s has damaged almost everyone. The prologue reminded me a lot of Rogue One, not really in a bad way.
    The actual…
