This weekend, I watched:
VERY well done, low budget, practical effects only, horror movie. It had some great character development for a movie of this type. I really liked it. 7.0/10
I'll watch pretty much anything that Carey Mulligan is in (LOVED her in Drive!), however, this one was kind of just "meh" for me. I didn't overly like it or not like it...just kind of "meh". 5.5/10
A classic that I've probably seen 20 or more times over the years. I watched in remembrance of John Hurt (who passed this weekend). IMO, Alien is one of the best horror movies ever made. 8.5/10
Sort of "Goodfellas meets True Romance". Hard to believe it was based on a true story because the two protaganists are complete
idiots. I did enjoy the movie, but not worth a re-watch. 6.5/10
He Never Died
OK, if you've never seen this, try to go in blind. I did, and I think I enjoyed it more because of it. I will tell you that this is one very different take on a well covered genre. Henry Rollins absolutely nails it and some of his lines had me laughing so hard I had to pause the movie so I didn't miss anything. As an added bonus, the bass was out of this world! A bit over the top at times, but lots of deep, low drones and hits throughout.
As the top review on IMDB says, "Documentary that you'd never think could make you cry..."
. Well, I did, and I'm not ashamed to admit it. This documentary about Earth's 6th Extinction (our own) was very eye-opening for me. These really could be the end times, and there is little we can do about it at this point unless some sweeping changes are made. Watching this very well done movie was quite a depressing (although uplifting at times) experience for me. 8.5/10
