Jumanji
Jumanji Oddly enough, picked this up only a few weeks ago on amazon for $8. Still as good as it was when I was 8.

Godzilla
Godzilla Saw it a second time within about 15 hours of my first viewing. I actually enjoyed it less, and found myself dozing off in the theater a few times. I'd still go with a 6/10 though, as there are some truly brilliant scenes, and the CGI is absolutely mind blowing.

Godzilla
Godzilla I find myself very underwhelmed right now. There was a handful of amazing things in this movie, but sadly, they were strongly outweighed by all the issues I had with it. Maybe it requires a second viewing, as Cloverfield didn't click with me till the second or third time, but for now this gets a 6/10 from me.

V/H/S
V/H/S First and last ones were the best. They saved this movie, no question. 6/10

Texas Chainsaw
Texas Chainsaw Best part of this movie was the opening few moments...when they "recapped" the original film. Utter shit.

Dexter: Season 1 Just burned through the whole season in one day. Very enjoyable.

Survival Of The Dead
Survival Of The Dead A few good moments, but overall I'm convinced Romero has lost "it".

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind Just watched this for the first time in 5+ years. Still amazing. Gondry has a very distinct and unique style of film making and it's very apparent in this picture. Nearly impossible to find a flaw in this one.

Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus
Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus Wow, weird that we watched this on the first day of comments. Anyway, yeah. I got about 30 minutes in and headed upstairs for a nap. Totally was not digging this. Should have been campier. Boo.

2/10 for what I saw.

Walk The Line
Walk The Line I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this one. I expected it to be a real middle of the road film without much to offer, but I quite enjoyed it.

The Human Centipede (First Sequence)
The Human Centipede (First Sequence) Didn't quite live up to my expectation. It was pretty good, but I felt it fell apart at the end.

The Blob
The Blob 2/10? Good gravy.

I felt this was a pretty legit remake, and Shawnee Smith eating shit on the side of the firetruck was golden.

A Nightmare On Elm Street
A Nightmare On Elm Street I don't even feel like giving this a full comment. I saw it, it sucked, the end.

2/10.

Clash Of The Titans
Clash Of The Titans Recommend the 3D version? Are you kidding? There was 3, maybe 4 moments that actually had some 3D value. The rest was terrible and out-of-focus. Avatar. That was great in 3D. This was atrocious. I kept taking my glasses off and was able to see the movie totally fine. Not worth extra money, at all.

Amusement
Amusement I always wanted to check this one out because of the amusing cover. Pun intended. High five.

Planet Hulk
Planet Hulk Enjoyed this one. For the most part, I haven't been digging the last bunch of Marvel DTV titles, but this one was awesome. Probably just because I've always been a Hulk fan. Either way, enjoyable movie.

Pride And Glory
Pride And Glory I think I enjoyed this a little more than Meanie, but yes, it was very forgettable. One of those movies you see and don't even mention to the guys at work the next day.

Pontypool
Pontypool Pontypool is actually about 25 minutes away from where Darrin and I live. I've heard nothing but good things about this movie. For the most part, meanie's got pretty good taste when it comes to horror movies. I think I'm going to have to try this one out now.

A Christmas Story
A Christmas Story It really doesn't get any more classic than this. One of the best Christmas movies, and easily one of the funniest movies I've seen. 10/10

Running Scared
Running Scared I've never been a fan of Paul Walker, and going into this film for the first time, I really had no idea what the story was about. I can't stress enough how impressed I was with this film. It wasn't just your typical run-of-the-mill gangster movie. There were a lot of twists and turns, and quite a few story arcs added in to beef up the story. Again, agreeing with Meanie, it was nice that the film received an R rating. It allowed the director to put out a quality film, rather than that fluffy shit you usually see flooding the screens. I saw it for the first time about 3 years ago, and gave myself just enough time to forget some of the aforementioned twists and turns. Made for a great watch the second time around as well.

9/10 sounds about right.

Cape Fear
Cape Fear Really loved this one. Had a very Hitchcockian feel to it, which I felt worked perfectly given the source material. I could not find a single thing wrong with this film. The performances were solid, the camera work was great, albeit different from what you usually see from Scorsese, and the score was fantastic. All in all, a perfect suspenseful film.

Paranormal Activity
Paranormal Activity In no way a fatty? I'm out of shape, but I'm proud to say I don't have a big fat mess hanging off my cheeks and neck. This girl had a killer set, but she was a fatty. She was on O&A a few weeks ago. I saw video of that. Guess what. She's still a fatty.

The Office: Season 1 Watch the original. Please. You won't regret it.

Happiness
Happiness Really really great movie. Difficult to watch at times though. Too many disturbing and awkward moments. Kind of makes you happy with your own situation after seeing what some of these people go through.

Night Of The Creeps
Night Of The Creeps Just as good as I remember it being. I must say though, I think the original ending was better than the one on the newly released DVD. Luckily it's included in the bonus features. Also anything with Tom Atkins is immediately cool.

9/10

Don't Look In The Basement
Don't Look In The Basement I'm sure it'll make you a fortune.

This film could have been decent...had something actually happened. There were just too many scenes thrown in that didn't move the story along at all. Surprisingly the acting was pretty damn decent, and aside from a lot of padding, the story was pretty solid. Not the greatest thing ever made, but certainly eons better than I expected it to be.

Memorial Valley Massacre
Memorial Valley Massacre It was nothing to write home about, but I was surprised at how much I actually enjoyed it. I figured it would be one of those movies I would regret sitting through, but it managed to hold my interest the entire time. A rare feat for a movie of this calibre.

6/10 sounds about right.

The Howling
The Howling You know, after watching it again, it really isn't as good as I remember. It strays from the source material quite a bit, and a lot of the scenes feel out of place. I don't know if it was the editing or what, but scenes were tossed in where they really didn't fit. After repeated viewing, I think this one drops down to about a 6/10 from myself.

Basket Case
Basket Case Laughably bad, but we had a good time watching it. It was entertaining, to say the least.

House On Haunted Hill
House On Haunted Hill Horror classic, no doubt about it. I can enjoy it just as much now as the first time I watched it.

9/10

Paranormal Activity
Paranormal Activity Yeah, no. This movie was terrible. It was one of those shitty TV "Ghost Hunter" shows turned into a movie. Not original, not scary, not worth watching. I checked the remaining time every 5-10 minutes I was so bored. And as far as the theatrical ending vs the screener ending, they were both trash. The only good part was the girl's set. Too bad she was a fatty.

Zombieland
Zombieland Yeah, so this movie was just this side of perfect. I had a few minor complaints here and there, but overall I couldn't find a single thing wrong with it. The cameo was hilarious, the gore was nice, and the movie really moved along at a nice pace. Definitely in my top movies of the year.

King Kong
King Kong One of my fondest childhood films that I've seen a million times. Even watching it now you an still appreciate how revolutionary and ingenious the special effects were. We just don't see this kind of attention to detail anymore. Great performances, a classic story, and one of the most iconic characters to ever appear in movies. Without a doubt, 10/10.

Zombieland Emma Stone is anything but gorgeous.

Jennifer's Body
Jennifer's Body I actually downloaded the same cam version as Chad. I had absolutely no intentions on seeing this, but after his 0/10 I think I pretty much have to now.

The Crazies
The Crazies This movie was atrocious. The only thing it had going for it was a nice storyline. Too bad the horrendous acting, editing and special effects had to ruin that.

True Blood: Season 2
True Blood: Season 2 Aside from Evan Rachel Wood showing up and doing a horrific job of her role, I didn't have a single complaint about this season. All the acting was superb, the storylines were great, and indeed meshed together very well. Almost every episode ended with a cliffhanger, adding to the charm of the series and making me wanting more. Come next summer, I will definitely be all over the third season.

9/10

The Amityville Horror
The Amityville Horror One of the worst movies you've ever seen warrants a 4/10?
Posted by Tristan on October 04, 2009
The Hills Have Eyes
The Hills Have Eyes Not entirely sure why I didn't comment on this earlier. What is there to say, really? The original had a nice story, but was unbelievably boring. This one was so much better than the original it's not even funny. Like Dametria said, let's just pretend this was the original. Alexandre Aja certainly didn't cut any corners when it came to the special effects and make-up, and it was definitely for the best. One of the most violent and brutal movies I've seen in years, and I still enjoy it every time I watch it.

10/10

Wolf Creek
Wolf Creek Watched this waaaaaay back when it came out. I really enjoyed it then, and after watching it again recently, I'd have to say this film is nearly perfect. Besides being a little slow at the beginning and ending quite abruptly, I can't find anything really wrong with it. Some of the best character development I've seen in a horror movie in quite some time. This wasn't just another Hostel or Turistas, and the film wasn't over-the-top for the sake of it. Very enjoyable, and definitely better than people give it credit for.

8.5/10

Bug
Bug I knew what the film was about, but I didn't think it would go as far as it did. It just did not let up. Great performances from Ashley Judd and Michael Shannon, and even Harry Connick Jr was able to pull off his role without looking like an idiot. Those last 20 minutes were really quite intense. I really couldn't find a single thing wrong with this movie. 10/10

On a side note, I don't find the pizza delivery all that confusing. They imagine the phone is ringing, they are cutting themselves up to get rid of "bugs", they tinfoiled the apartment, and they killed a man they thought was a robot. I don't think an imaginary pizza delivery is that much of a stretch.

Trick 'R Treat
Trick 'R Treat I'm with Chad 100% on this one. This is what a Halloween movie should be. I've been looking forward to this movie for the last few years, while it's been stuck in limbo, and the wait was well worth it. It was just as good as I'd hoped, and better. Definitely the kind of movie you pop in with your date on Halloween night. I won't be the least bit surprised when this one earns the "cult classic" title.

10/10

Pitch Black
Pitch Black A pretty damn good horror movie. Vin Diesel included, the acting is great, the story is great, and it looks good. I haven't seen it in a few years, but I really can't think of any problems I had with it. I've never seen the sequel, but it looks a little more like an action film than a horror film. Probably why I've taken a pass on it all these years.

The Last House On The Left
The Last House On The Left If they released a version that ended 20 seconds sooner, I would have given this a perfect score, I do believe. Everything about this movie was exactly what you expect in a horror film, then they had to ruin it all in the final scene. So I'm taking a few points off for that terrible ending, but aside from that, a goddamn fine horror movie. Another Craven remake that far surpasses the original. Who knows, maybe there's hope for Nightmare on Elm Street after all.

Lost: Season 5
Lost: Season 5 I actually yelled at my screen after the finale wrapped. Boy does that ever make a man feel silly. Anyway, a great albeit confusing season. Some pretty interesting developments, some questions are answered, new ones are brought up. So what really did happen to Claire? Why is Jack's father somehow a main player on the island's spooky side? These are just some of the questions that were picking my brain for the entire season. I can only hope they are answered in the final season. The cliffhanger ending is just ridiculous. If that won't make you watch the next season, nothing will. I hate the winter, but I can't wait for January to roll around.

9/10

Lost: Season 4
Lost: Season 4 Fantastic season. On par with seasons 1 and 2, no doubt about it. In fact, I'd almost say it was the best season yet. It really felt like they were starting to get the series back on track and were thinking about finally wrapping it up. It was nice to finally see some light at the end of the tunnel. Can't wait to start season 5 tonight.

10/10

Lost: Season 3
Lost: Season 3 Just finished season 3, and I have to say that I disagree with Chad. Yes there was some shameful filler, and yes the story spent a little too much time on 'the others' rather than our friends on the beach, but as the storyline advances the writers really can't keep focusing solely on the crash survivors. It would just get tiring. That said, I felt that this season really only suffered in some of the middle episodes. The first few episodes contained one of the biggest shockers of the series, and the last handful of episodes were amazing - even drawing out some tears from yours truly. After the finale, I can't wait to jump into season 4. Not quite on par with the first two seasons, but definitely not as bad as Chad is making it out to be. Fairweather fans will probably hate it, but for those true Lost fans, it's just a little different.

8/10
