"Kevin's mother struggles to love her strange child, despite the increasingly vicious things he says and does as he grows up. But Kevin is just getting started, and his final act will be beyond anything anyone imagined."
"The Cabin in the Woods"
I loved it. The Evil Dead is my favorite movie of all time so I'm a sucker for these films. The last 20 minutes is awesome. So leave plausibility at the door and check it out before it's spoiled for you. And don't wait till the credits are over for a surprise bit because there was none.
Classic 80's California vibe.
I think Chainsaw and Dave had a big part on me growing up.
One of those movies that makes me feel totally nostalgic.
Director: Bruce McDonald
Stars: Stephen McHattie, Lisa Houle and Georgina Reilly
My Rating: Andy approved. UP TOP!
"A psychological thriller in which a deadly virus infects a small Ontario town."
Up until about 3/4 through this movie I thought if was going to be perfect. I really like movies based around radio DJ's so I thought this was going to be like the old War of Worlds broadcast except for real. The movie is good but if they did something different like never show any zombies and make us use our imagination through the whole film it could have been something special.
Sherlock Holmes - 2009
A Holmes film for people who hate Holmes, don't know Holmes or were dropped on their heads at birth.
Downey paints Sherlock as a mumbling prick (truly you can only hear half of what he says...death for any version of Holmes), it makes nods to the actual stories and then shits on them and the screenplay has no idea about Holmes or his relationship with the other people and the world around him AT ALL.
It's trash and another drop into the crapper for Ritchie after his first two wonderful films.
An obnoxious, mumbling, Holmes, a slam-bam mess of a plot and 'hip' blandness is all this rubbish offers.
Mumble, mumble, bang, crash, inane scripting, mumble, stupidity, mumble, annoyance, loudness, mumble...FUCK OFF.
If you want Sherlock Holmes close to the stories, or only based on them (but still faithful to the essence of the stories and the character) watch the new BBC "Sherlock" series, the Rathbone films, the Brett TV show and listen to the BBC radio,full-Canon, versions with Clive Merrison & Michael Williams.
Few films are this entertaining, this open to decades of re-watchability...but "Kelly's Heroes" is certainly one of them.
A top main cast (Clint Eastwood is cool, Telly Savalas has never been better, Don Rickles is great fun, Donald Sutherland is genius) has consistently brilliant support from a fantastic line-up of thesps (Carrol O'Connor, Harry Dean Stanton, Stuart Margolin, Gene Collins, Gavin MacLeod -with his camp negative waves- and Karl-Otto Alberty), the dialogue crackles, the Lalo Schifrin music is excellent, the pacing, editing and action direction top notch and the background scale (a small sale story with a mammoth backdrop of extras, villages, tanks and explosions) is old school epic.
Half a star off for the forced mine field scene (makes no sense as to why two guys stay there if you look at the time taken and terrain) and overly long move up into the town...otherwise this is perfection that you can re-watch endlessly.
True it's (especially Sutherland's wonderful Oddball and his men) more 'Nam than WW2 but with this amount of fantastic fun offered up, who cares.
Chain Letter 2009
its like a mix of Urban Legend, Saw and Final Destination. It wasn't a good movie but the death scenes were very creative and violent. Worth a watch, its on netflix stream.
Watched Wrath of the Titans yesterday, the wife & I enjoyed the hell out of it, by not being restricted to the remake structure they made one damn awesome action spectacle!

Re-watched "Drive" last night. Sometimes it takes me a second viewing to really appreciate a film and after seeing it again I would say it a modern classic. Goslings plays it to cool for school.
John Carter::: 4/5 : Better than any Star-wars prequel , Better than Green Lantern, Very pleasantly surprised. I don't know why it caught so much shit.
UnderWorld: Awakening:::: 2/5 a drop in the budget couldn't help the worst installment in the series.
American Reunion:: 2/5 Formulaic ... pretty much what i expected...10 yrs couldn't help Tara Reids acting Sean Willliam Scott the best thing in the movie. When they gonna give this guy the Role for DeaD pOOL already?
