Blood Quantum: First Nation has Zombie issues which are really just a metaphor for racial relations. Script and editing a bit clunky, but I enjoyed it for what it is.

The Greasy Stangler: Seriously a "What the fuck" movie. It's a purposely bad movie that had me rolling the entire time. Basically, John Travolta's former hair stylist (in real life) and his son are... i can't even finish describing it. It's a really dumb, fucked up movie. So dumb it's almost brilliant. Kept me laughing.

Becky: If Home Alone was done in the woods and The King of Queens was a Nazi. I was very indifferent about this movie. Not good. Not terrible.

I've watched a few movies the past few months, but can't remember off the top of my head right now what they were. A few I really liked. I'll try to think back and post 'em

Blood Quantum was solid. Not quite as good as I was hoping; but good enough that we finished it.

I tried watching Greasy Strangler. Didn't ever finish it because it was too fucking weird :lol: But I gotta give props to the filmmaker for how absurd it was.

Becky should have been better. But was still better than I expected it to be; given how poorly it seemed to be received. They seemed to draw it out in weird spots too much, and maybe edited down a bit of the exposition and got down to the nitty gritty. Also; I am TIRED of dogs getting killed. I knew it was coming but it is still one of the laziest ways to get you emotionally involved in a story. :mad: I know it's not real but it still bugs me.

Watched Scare Package last night. Low budget horror/comedy anthology that just came to Shudder. Not perfect and there have been better anthologies for sure; but good sense of humor and some actually solid practical effects that surprised me in how good they looked vs. the budget they were probably working with.

As far as mass market horror goes; we watched the Child's Play remake the last week. I didn't like the originals. This one had Mark Hammill (who did Douriff proud) and a surprisingly good sense of humor that I wasn't expecting. Aubrey Plaza (realistically no one's mom ever) was a good choice for that exact reason. And the kids playing Andy's friends did a good job in that regard as well. The integration of tech into the story (at least where internet of things is concerned) was not as far fetched as I expected either :eek: Not a classic by any means; but much better than I rightfully expected it to be.

Da 5 Bloods. Spike Lee film about 5 VietNam vets who return to find the best friend they lost and the shipment of gold they buried before leaving. Very timely film. Little heavy handed because of the director, but given the material at hand; completely understandable. Oddly positive tone with some very unexpected emotional notes that really made it stand out from your normal crime/war flick. Cast was the icing on the cake for me. Delroy Lindo did great as did Senator Clay Davis and the other actor from the Wire who's name I can't recall. Spoiler for Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit never fails to crack me up :lol: Film did not disappoint for that split second out of nowhere script addition. Beyond that; little long but scenery was enjoyable and cinematography was excellent overall. Good flick.

It wasn't a bad movie. Not one I would have wanted to pay to see though

Yeah, the cast was the best part of the movie. I found it predictable which is not typical of Lee IMNSHO. Still worth watching for the performances.

I felt it was a mix of apocalypse now and interstellar but with the charm of neither.

Watched a few oddballs over the weekend.

Yummy: Dutch zombie flick. Set in plastic surgery hospital in Eastern Europe. Gets to work quick. Nice and gory with a good sense of humor. At this point; most scenarios for a zombie film have been done to death. This one is "new" but really the same as everything else once you get down to it. That genre-quibble aside; a good flick to turn off your brain and just have a laugh at.

The Bar: Spanish body horror/thriller. Group of strangers end up in a bar together. All hell breaks loose because of certain patron. More horror than I expected; but not really what I would call a horror film. Little long but good story, great dialog with a sense of humor and pretty exciting as well. I liked this one quite a bit.

Eurovision: mildy amusing/10

Will Ferrell; he's clearly a funny guy, he's done some brilliant cameos over the years, but I'm yet to see one of his films that was better/funnier than it's trailer. Dont think I laughed out loud once during this.

Also, it probably helps to have some knowledge of the actual Eurovision event to get some of the jokes, not sure how this film will be received outside of Europe.

I love will Ferrell but Eurovision was a slow burn of vaguely trying to be a comedy. Try harder/10

Honestly, it seemed like something was wrong with your posts, I apologize, now knowing the "why does Pepi sound drunk?"

I had also googled "top gunner" and didn't see anything but "Top Gun".

Today, I saw it, and sadly, I can't blame alcohol for my bad...........

Doctor Sleep: 7.5/10

Not a bad resolution to the Shining. Decent and kept my attention. Rebecca Ferguson is suitably crazy.

The Adjustment Bureau: 6/10

She watched the horror with me, so I watched this with her. From a PK Dick story, I preferred the original but hey ya gotta have a love story amirite?

Sparked a decent convo between us so there’s that...

The Adjustment Bureau was a bit too much for me. I do like looking at Emily though

Bloodshot: 6/10

Decent adaptation. Was ok, wouldn’t recommend it if you’re not a fan of the comic.

Terminator Dark Fate: lame/10

It’s the same fucking story every time. If you’ve seen the 1st one this isn’t a shock. If you’ve seen the 2nd one, no shock. If you’re going to actually pay $ to watch this, watch the first scene for the shock value and then shut it off.

Also, Linda Hamilton was bad in this, definitely phoned it in. How could she not?! Was weird seeing a senior citizen say ‘motherfucker’ every 3rd scene...

Been meaning to catch this one for some time. Both actors are great. We just re-watched History of Violence over the weekend and Mortenson was such a mild mannered badass in that :evil:
