The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 I really liked the first movie in this reboot. This one however was fucking rubbish.

Arachnophobia
Arachnophobia Wait, you don't like John Goodman? He's had his duds, but by and large I love good stuff.

Suicide Squad
Suicide Squad Pretty much terrible from start to finish. DCCU pretty much sucks and is dead to me.

Us Sinners There's a new VOID service and Us Sinners is available on it. There might be some other underground films you might be interested in seeing.

Zootopia
Zootopia Loved this. I didn't think it was as great as the Box-Office presented it.

Pixar and Disney didn't split, did they?

I paid $21 for the 3D set. They didn't send me the digital code, so I complained. They sent me a code which got me one hundred Disney points. They sent me another code which got me the digital copy and 150 points. Then I sold the DVD copy for $7. I love a bargain.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows Watched it again without the initial green tinted lenses, the convoluted plot was more noticeable. I still loved the hell out of it, and I stand by the score, but the review probably needs an additional paragraph detailing that bit.

The Purge: Anarchy
The Purge: Anarchy One of the best "Punisher" movies ever made. That said... eh. Kind of in the same boat with you on this one. I might have enjoyed it more, but the issues still existed. 7.2/10

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows A fun call, and I agree with... a LOT of what you said, still, thought this was a mess. A choppy, obnoxiously edited mess, that I found much less jarring and completely fucking obnoxious than the first film, but a mess all the same. Still, they got two of my favorite "TMNT" characters of all time right... but, unfortunately, they also completely fucked up my favorite "TMNT" character of all time so... meh. A hard, "meh". May watch it again, someday. 5.1/10

There Will Be Blood
There Will Be Blood 3/10. I must have missed something in translation. I had to fight to stay awake as I found the whole movie minus the bowling alley scene to be one huge bore

The Dark Knight Rises
The Dark Knight Rises Watching it again for the first time since I saw it in cinemas. It's really a mess of a film. 4/10

King Kong Just watched this after years, and it's AMAZING.

Inside Out
Inside Out I enjoyed Cranium Command much more than this movie. I have it somewhere on MiniDV.

Inside Out I remember that show!

Inside Out
Inside Out There was a "show" at Epcot called Cranium Command that was this movie. It told the story of a boy's day at school when he doesn't get to eat breakfast. All his functions working against each other.

I enjoyed this. But, it's one of the weaker Pixar films IMO. The story structure seemed off. The Protagonist/Antagonist wasn't necessarily clear. I still own it though.

Kick-Ass 2
Kick-Ass 2 I like them both equally. Though I was surprised that Moretz's role wasn't much bigger in this one. She was the stand-out in the first.

Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers
Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers I love this movie. Besides the original, I think it's the best in the series.

American Sniper
American Sniper Overall the professionalism of the film is excellent. All the performances were first rate... But, in the end, it was boring. The action was extreme. I just wish the family story was a little more interesting.

I also don't see why so many were offended by this film.

People are fucked up.

Son Of Frankenstein Guy gets his arm ripped off in the 30s. 10/10

Interstellar This movie bored the hell out of me. I tried to enjoy it, and it just did nothing for me.

Bride Of Frankenstein
Bride Of Frankenstein I bought the Universal Monster set, and watched Frankenstein and Bride as a double feature. It was a great night. Both are well deserved classics.

Without looking it up, who was Elsa Lancaster married to? Hint, he played an iconic monster in a remake of one of Lon Chaney's famous roles.

Frankenstein
Frankenstein Bride is already reviewed and in the pipeline, as is Son.

Frankenstein
Frankenstein The Bride should be next. It's BETTER than Frankenstein (though not by much).

Mae Clarke went on to get a grapefruit to the face by Jimmy Cagney in The Public Enemy, released the same year 1931.

Colin Clive died in 37 from pneumonia because he was a raging alcoholic.

The little things...

All the classics are 10/10

If you haven't seen The Invisible Man, the special effects are WOW!

Final Destination
Final Destination I just watched the four in a row, and I enjoyed the hell out of this series. The originality of the kills was pretty impressive in this era. All of the acting was fine, and I didn't really have a problem with the "unique" plot. If you just go with it, it's a fun ride.

A Tale Of Two Sisters 4/10.....had about 10 endings too many.

Zombieland
Zombieland I love Zombieland. I found a 2007 draft of the script (I thought it was the final draft). The script is different, interesting and has some great moments.
I always wondered how they found the girls and the Escalade on the road. It was On-Star. Harrelson’s character had a friendly relationship with Detroit the last On-Star operator. She thought he was killed when the escalade crashed. She gave him the location of it. She in the script a bunch of times, and completely removed from the film.

There’s no clown nemesis for Flagstaff and the girls final destination was DISNEYLAND. Of course they’d never get permission to shoot there, and it ends at a mini-mart.

Flagstaff and Stone never hook up, and the guys are constantly being hi-jacked by them. The girls are not in the last half hour of the film (they’re found 2 pages before The End) or at Bill Murray’s house. Of course in the script it’s Patrick Swayze’s pad. Swayze has no lines as he’s a real zombie. Numerous classic Swayze scenes are reproduced, ending with Swayze and Harrelson reenacting the Swayze/Grey dance.
It’s fascinating the simple changes that made the film that much better than the script (though there’s plenty of great stuff removed. I don’t remember where I downloaded it from, it’s well worth the read.

The Amazing Spider-Man
The Amazing Spider-Man I really enjoyed this one. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are great and it's an overall great superhero movie. Sadly I can't say the same for the second movie.

Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday
Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday While I begrudgingly admit it was better than eight, Jason Goes to Hell is still terrible.The body-jumping idea was stupid. This half-cocked idea that Jason was actually a demon, but yet still tied to a mortal bloodline was stupid. This all-knowing sage archetype was stupid. The transforming knife thing was stupid. They couldn't even throw us any good aesthetics either. Tent scene aside, there was nothing special about any of the kills, and in the ten minutes of screen-time Jason got, he looked terrible and not in the good way. Then there was the big climax, featuring a bunch of demon hands that looked like something from the latest Muppets movie.Somewhere in all this mess, there's one or two concepts that could have formed the foundation of a well-done Jason Goes to Hell, but they sure weren't used.

Friday The 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan
Friday The 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan Complete garbage. Not only was the New York angle blatantly pissed away, but there were way to many sloppy ideas. Crystal Lake is in Sussex New Jersey, a landlocked county in north western jersey, a mere 75 miles from Manhattan. Yet this boat is leaving on a 24 hour oceanic cruise to the city. I understand wanting to change things, but at least think a little bit about how to get him there. Plus, the concept with child Jason was mind-numbingly retarded, not to mention way out of the series timeline. Jason's new found ability of teleportation is just pure laziness. The toxic waste thing was worth nothing more than a confused blink and a depressed sigh. If you simply ignore this one, the franchise is better for it.

Frankenstein
Frankenstein I disagree, this was one of the more faithful adaptations I've ever seen, save a few bits here and there, most of which took their inspiration from Universal's classic. The only one I really hated was the Elizabeth scene. As for the ending, it's very close to the novel's ending, but features a melodramatic, sappy twinge to it that did no favors to either this movie or the pages that inspired it. 7/10

Avengers: Age Of Ultron
Avengers: Age Of Ultron I had a few issues with the movie, but it was great nonetheless. Probably about an 8/10 for me.

One thing that bugs me about both Avengers movies (and other movies that do this) is the use of mind control. It's kind of a cop-out plot device to make good characters do bad things without any reason (for that character, not the villain) or emotional arc. Granted, the run time of each movie was already crammed full of plot and couldn't stand much more being inserted, but mind control always feels cheap to me. Also, no character who has been mind controlled should be trusted after that (especially with no telepath on the team), regardless of Black Widow's magic ability to shock people back to normalcy.

Van Helsing
Van Helsing It's funny, to see negative comments about this movie everywhere; but, if you ask them - why was it bad, compared to what... It's a gr8 (!) adventure, one of my favorites!.. Watch it alone, so presumptuous people won't bother you; I love it, still watch it today - even after SO many viewings. :))

The Toolbox Murders I agree. I wish the intensity of the first ten minutes continued throughout the whole movie

Salò: The 120 Days Of Sodom
Salò: The 120 Days Of Sodom If this movie was made in the US there would have been a revolt at the end and the Fascists would have died as tragically as possible. However, there is nothing compatible for them to get their just desserts. That's my main problem with this film, this is sickness for sickness sake. There's no ramifications for your actions. While this is true in real-life, why would you glorify it on cinema? I liken this to The Wolf of Wall Street. I sat there for 3 hours waiting for this asshole to die, and he didn't.

Sick, disturbing film, just not satisfying in the end.

The Phantom Of The Opera
The Phantom Of The Opera Yes, Charlie Chaplin.

I bought a 10 blu ray set from South Korea, many of his classics aren't available in the US on blu ray.

Buster Keaton is a completely different type comedian. But, his silents are magnificent. I didn't think I would appreciate him the way I did Chaplin, and I was wrong.

The one thing to remember when watching silents, there was no code for danger. So, many of the things that look dangerous and deadly, and they were.

The Phantom Of The Opera
The Phantom Of The Opera Chaplin as in Charlie Chaplin? I've seen a skit from Gold Rush that was hysterical. Wanted to look more into him.

Jennifer's Body
Jennifer's Body I didn't know till recently that this was written by Diablo Cody. So, for $3 I bought it. Fox is pretty hot, so really how bad could it be? The first thing I noticed is Seyfried is the lead not Fox. IMO I'd fuck Seyfried over Fox any day of the week. So, that was a pleasant surprise. It was the awful script that ruined this movie.

I've been watching a ton of Chaplin, Keaton, Hitchcock, and everything else made back in Hollywood's hey day. So, I have high expectations. The amount of long, boring and nothing happens scenes were vast as opposed to the one or two decent bloody moments.

This movie is a prime example of latching onto a script written by an Oscar winner. This script had no right being shot the way it was. Look at the amount of talent that grabbed on. What a piece of shit this was.

The Phantom Of The Opera
The Phantom Of The Opera Isn't it fantastic? It's your first silent, there are SO MANY magnificent silents. Wait till you see The Hunchback of Notre Dame, West of Zanzibar, The Unknown or The Penalty.

Kino has released the original 1925 version on Blu Ray along with 2 1929 reissues in one package. They're all great.

If you get a chance and want a recommendation on (IMO) one of those endings that just flaw you, check out Chaplin's City Lights. All his films are fabulous, but the ending of CL is special, very very special.

Werewolf In A Women's Prison
Werewolf In A Women's Prison This was pretty fucking terrible. In a good way I mean. Lots of blood, lots of boobs, plenty of tongue in cheek action. Plus, I kind of liked the aesthetic of the werewolf. It looked extremely cheap of course, but it was a really nice thought. No reason to watch this again, but I enjoyed it when it was on.
