Looks like a must see to me. Based on the improvements from 1 to 2, I'm looking forward to this next one.

I think someone watched Odd Thomas and liked it. I second that. Pretty good little movie in the vein of Frighteners.

For sure it's a b movie but it had a good story and some nice effects sequences. Didn't know it was a Dean Koontz story until after I saw it. Yelchin does a fine job along side DaFoe.

It's been in my queue for a while but like Larry just haven't felt like giving it a go. I swear, this job out of town is killing my movie time (among other things). My list of want to see is starting to feel un-achievable! I felt like some dumb fun last night and the missus was working upstairs so I rented Robocop, what a piece of steaming crap. The writer and director should both suffer for such a failed opportunity to do something new with that story.

Not a movie but the WGN series "Salem" has been excellent. The actor who plays the senior reverend just knocks it out of the ballpark and does an award winning performance.

That's too funny. I just watched The Craft on Netflix before posting that. It's been a very long time since I've seen it. I didn't remember Robin Tunney being in it but Fairuza Balk is unforgettable. I don't know what it is about her. She's kinda strange looking but hot at the same time. Vicki Vallencourt really is the Devil!

I reserved a copy of All Cheerleaders Die at Redbox online. I went to pick it up but the kiosk wouldn't read my credit card. I called the help phone number that's printed on the kiosk and they told me they couldn't cancel the reservation and I'd still be charged for the movie, but they did gave me a movie credit. After work I went across town to a different Redbox and used my "free" movie credit to rent it.

I agree Kenobi about the new Robocop, the only positive thing about the movie was Gary Oldman, other than that MGM made a stinker of a movie.

My mother in law sent me some BDs she picked up at garage sales in her neighborhood, one of them was the movie The Last House on the Left remake. I watched a little bit of it yesterday and I prefer the original one, but the remake is pretty good on BD.

I noticed Hemlock Grove is out on BD and I think I might have to check that out or on Netflix in Oct.

I had problems with a credit card reader on a RB kiosk at the nearby supermarket. The manager said people were having problems. Fortunately I wasn't doing a reserve with it. Apparently the reader was replaced because it works okay now.

You guys talking about Wolf Creek2 gave me motivation to see if it was at RB, well it wasn't so I rented Afflicted on DVD instead. For a found footage film, it was decent (3 Super strong Zombies) and worth a rent for the Oct pile. I also had time to play with the setting on my PJ and now I know why people pay $200+ dollars or more to get it calibrated. After a few hours I got the black level pretty darn good for this Pj and watching AVPR was a fantastic test with all of the dark scenes in that film. I can finally see in detail what is going on in the darker scenes!


Anybody here buying Cannibal Holocaust on BD? Lake Placid is also coming out this week from Shout that looks pretty cool!
Been out of town on vacation for a while and getting caught up and just read the Cannibal Holocaust review on bluray.com. I still haven't seen this and not sure how much replay it would have but would certainly add an edge to the bluray collection.

I like both of those guys and have added to my 2014 Octoberfest spreadsheet of potential movies.

I watched the new Robocop and then the original a night later. The original is kind of what I cut my teeth on many years ago and set a standard, to me, of what a smart, brutal, intense scifi movie should be. That said, I enjoyed the new one as a completely different pg13 offering. Can't compare to the original, but was a good enough 90 minutes. Kind of like the Total Recall redux, though I like the TR redux better. Are they as good, or intense, as the originals? Heck no, but VERY few movies since they were made can match these classics imho.

I try and go into most films with an open mind/heart and I realize that most of these remakes are more studio ran than director ran (aka PG13). But films like Robocop and the next MGM remake will be Poltergeist, are near and dear to me, I just want them to do a great job or don't do it at all.


I heard GDT might get the HP Lovecraft book Mountain of Madness made into a movie. Legendary might back it but it might have to be PG13. GDT says he can probably do it, but it will be a challenge.
