    Hancock

    ★★★

    Girlfriend hadn't seen this so we watched it. She was instantly turned off when I said it was a superhero movie until Hancock starts being a complete dick and then she settled in to the awesome that is Hancock. This isn't great by any stretch, but this is my kind of superhero flick. The guy is rude, vulgar, violent, a drunk. He's not this pristine and invincible machine against crime which I dig too, but these offbeat movies are more my style overall. Basically, its a fun hour and a half that you can just sit back, have a few laughs, and enjoy.

  • Spiral: From the Book of Saw

    Spiral: From the Book of Saw

    ★★★

    Where to start? First off, this feels exactly like some kind of fan made movie. Its like one of those things that some shitty knockoff studio makes to try and bank on the popularity of something. That isn't to say this was bad, just that it really feels like a fan script rather than a mainline entry and I do feel that the name is apt. Apparently Chris Rock wanted to make this and did and it feels exactly like…

  • Oxygen

    Oxygen

    ★★★

    This seems like a B movie reaching for the stars. Was kind of surprised to see Aja's name on it too. It feels exactly like a made for Netflix movie. There is about as much effort put into it as needs to be, but no more. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, but you can certainly tell its made for a streaming service to be exactly what it needs to be.

    Oxygen isn't a bad movie by any stretch though.…

  • Unfriended

    Unfriended

    ★★★

    I liked this! The concept is very cool and unique...hopefully this doesn't get over done; however, I would say that Host was much better but its also newer.

    What this gets right is the overall aesthetic. Everything comes through a computer monitor and is largely done right. There were a few things here and there that deviated off of the screen but they were minor. The characters weren't terribly annoying either....mostly. So overall, I really dug the whole thing. Didn't…

  • The Cleansing Hour

    The Cleansing Hour

    ★★★½

    I still loved this on a second watch but will take a little off the score because it does have some quality issues here and there. Watched Eli the other day and that reminded me of this so had to go back and revisit it. Great pairing by the way.

  • Eli

    Eli

    ★★★

    I enjoyed this. Its a bit of an odd production though. Some bits feel cheap, like maybe cgi backgrounds here and there for outside the house, but then the story was pretty cool and well executed. Go in blind though because I feel knowing too much could ruin this. Honestly had low expectations, but ended up really liking this. Also, this should pair well with the Cleansing Hour.

  • Revenge of the Nerds

    Revenge of the Nerds

    ★★★

    Saw this with my parents at the theater back in the day. Had to do the old cover your eyes thing as a little kid lol. This isn't the greatest movie out there by any means, but it still makes me laugh.

  • The Wicker Man

    The Wicker Man

    ★★★★

    This is still pretty great. When I watched Midsommar I kept thinking about this one and wanted to see this again. Both movie are essentially the same thing, but both manage to do things very differently and would work great paired up.

  • Them

    Them

    ★★★

    Eh...was ok I guess. The poster is much better than the movie. Decent sound at times though. Things go quiet, no music and all you hear is the creepy background stuff. Beyond that, was a bit tense, but towards the end it really didn't go anywhere spectacular.

  • El Gigante

    El Gigante

    ★★★

    The whole time I watched this the one thought was that Rob Zombie must be attached to this somehow. Turns out he isn't. If I were to describe this, it would be a Mexican homage to Rob.

  • The Dead Don't Die

    The Dead Don't Die

    ★★

    Based on the half of this that I watched, it was boring with no end in sight. Bill Murray seems one step off a nursing home and the rest wasn't much better. Big cast though so not sure why its so bad. Maybe I'll finish it some day and revise this, but don't count on it.

  • His House

    His House

    ★★★½

    This was really well done. I'm not sure that it was all real or just in their minds, but the way the whole thing unfolds was nicely done. I love horror movies that blend real life tragedy into the horror side of things and this was very well put together.
