Is it working now? I could see the first one I posted for a while, then it turned "red x" on me.

There is something very satisfying about watching Liam Neeson punch a wolf in the face.

Default Release. The. Kraken.



Now I'm not saying that the writing was good or that the acting was...but honestly this movie a lot of fun. The special effects were top notch and the movie did a good job at conveying an "epic" feel. Plus there were definitely some moments that were unintentionally hilarious (like when Liam Neeson popped up at the beginning and yelled "DEFIANCE").

I love this movie. One of these days I'll have to upgrade it from VHS.

This again, colorized, and with commentary by Harryhausen and modern FX guys. Pretty interesting.

There was nothing good about this movie. Not a thing.

Just watched this tonight. HOLY shit. I think somewhere the makers of the sequel read complaints that the first one didn't have enough gore and said, "Oh don't you worry, we'll fix THAT!"

I like how they include other horror elements here (werewolf, vampire, mummy, zombies, and—strangely—Sade).

Great movie. Odd tag line though. Before TV airings and videos, who the hell would've seen the end of the movie before the rest of it?

Rubber (by Quentin Dupieux) and The Ballet Shoes (starring Emma Watson and a ton of other renowned British actors)

Rubber is about a car tire that comes to life and blows shit up with psychokinetic powers while following a young woman he has fallen in love with. It's better than Citizen Kane.

The Ballet Shoes is about a fossil collector who takes in his only other relative, and while she grows up he takes a tour of the world, sending her orphaned babies he finds. She ends up raising three girls who all devote themselves to ballet and theater acting, trying to earn money to keep a roof over their heads. Two of the girls act like real assholes (including Watson, which is a total about-face from her Hermione Granger) for a good part of the film.

Tried to see Act of Valor but it was sold out and I neither wanted to see another film there nor wait for almost an hour. God. Fucking. Damn. It.
