    • Jupiter Ascending - Meh. This kind of seemed like a less cool version of Men in Black. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. I just dig Mila Kunis.

        • American Sniper - Great movie, but tragic. Bradley Cooper showed some range in this flick.

              Ooooh, that looks good. Your opinion/review?

                It's an alright TV werewolves vs. vampires flick. I can't say I even noticed it was only a TV movie (I might have pegged it for a straight-to-DVD or limited-run movie) until I looked it up online. Both the vamps and lycans looked fairly good for the cheap effects.

                The story was alright. If you like those vampire stories that deal with centuries of back story and throw in names like Lilith, Bathory, Dracula, and Van Helsing, you might dig that aspect.

                Probably the bigger draw is post-fame Butler and Dacascos, though since both were only B stars at best, I guess that depends on whether the names mean anything to you. Neither are the main characters at any rate.

                I guess I'd say it wasn't bad for the budget and cast, but I wouldn't tell anyone to go out of their way to track it down.

                • National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1 (1993)

                  Luger: "Didn't you die?
                  Becker: "I thought this was the sequel."


                  A burnt-out psycho-cop (Emilio Estevez) is teamed up with a no-nonsense cop (Samuel L. Jackson) to crack a drug case involving cocaine and Girl Scout-esque cookies. Basically it's a parody of the first two Lethal Weapon films (with elements of LW3 mixed in, probably).

                  And holy shit is this film loaded with stars.

                  Shatner, Curry, Hartman, Feldman, Sheen, Goldberg, Abraham, Mr. Potato Head...you'll go nuts trying to name everyone.

                  It's got a shit-ton of good jokes to boot.

                  Very highly recommend (but make sure your copy doesn't have dried food on the disc like mine did; dumbass who sold it should have been more careful).

                    I watched this last also, after reading Cop's rundown on it. This flick doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is- a low budget Underworld ripoff, which is fine. The most interesting character was the Van Helsing guy. Some interesting camera work and angles.

                      "You boys have been through alot tonight. Bailey you book the Bradley boy. Baxter take the bassinet of baby Belial's in back and get Brody to come by! Where's Brannon and Banner?

                      • Monster House (2006)

                        "You called dibs on a girl through a telescope!"


                        A young boy believes there's something wrong about the local miser's house, but his friend won't believe him...until the house tries to eat them. Now they must hurry to destroy the monstrous structure before it claims the lives of the entire town.


                        This has overtones of Christine (Stephen King/John Carpenter) like all hell, but that doesn't really detract from how enjoyable this can be.

                        What DOES detract from the experience is how god-awful cliched the characters are. I get that they're kids, but Chowder is fucking stupid, the sitter is a pushy bitch, her boyfriend is a douchenozzle, the cops are fucking pathetic, and in the end only the girl, the lead boy, and the miser are any good.

                        I did like this and do recommend it for a rent (it's a brief 90 minutes), just beware that some of the characters are very schlocky.

                          "What?"

                          Felt pointless since the lady who goes homicidally mad didn't seem altogether with it at the beginning.

                          • Basket Case (1982)

                            Now, here we have a rather.....odd movie. As far as scares go, there are a few hidden gems, and the premise of the two brothers wanting revenge for being separated is plausible and understandable. Where it gets a little uncomfortable for me is the sexual fantasies and rape that end in the death of love interest #1. Sometimes, an idea can be gorier than the actual visual. If you let the idea swim freely in your head for a while, it eventually makes you want to cut off your own penis. At least, that was the effect it had on me.

                            And that might hurt.

                            Given that, I did manage to see the cult appeal of the film and plan to watch the two sequels. Belial is an interesting character, to say the least. I see now why it graced the pages of Fangoria during my childhood. My favorite part of the film was the flashback to the kids' birth and separation. That showed a lot of fear on the part of the father for not being able to accept his son as is, which is a very common theme between dads and sons in the real world. Visually, Belial reminded me a bit of Bib Fortuna from Return of the Jedi, as they both had sharp teeth and pale white flesh.

                            And to think I was going to watch Captain America: The Winter Soldier tonight.

                              #2 & 3 are much more humor-based. Although there's still a bunch of gory deaths, it isn't as dark. There's no more rape in them, but there is an infamous sex scene in #2, so head's up . . . so to speak.

                                Yeah, I kinda read the plot synopses for the two sequels and get the general gist of what happens. Actually, in a way, it's kind of touching that Belial becomes a family man. Haha

                                Thinking about the first one while at work today, I was actually bummed a bit that Belial didn't vocalize words. He did have a voice box of sorts since he usually screamed more than the freaking victims (except for the veterinarian doctor, whose death scene was a work of art).
