Portland is so small we don't have to cover as much ground as other, bigger cities, and easier to stay nice - for most...



Something about the third one really annoyed me. Awesome setup at the wedding, and really could have been good, but was bungled.

Good to hear you liked the 4th! It looks cool.
Found the trailer it does look interesting

Watched Pandorum on tv, and i had seen it in the movie theater and it was so dark i couldnt see crap, but on tv it was much more watchable visually.

However, i wasnt crazy about the movie at all, didnt do it for me, and while i love mixing sci-fi with horror like Alien or Event Horizon, i just didnt care for this one.

never take life seriously

Ah, they must have taken it down once they sold it. I am kinda addicted to buying vinyl and these days soundtracks have some great music on it!
Any new horror/scifi pickups? Even the old stuff is getting expensive now. These new vinyl hipsters are driving our prices up!

Agreed and that is the double edge sword for the demand of vinyl. More newer music getting pressed on vinyl but demand is driving prices higher.

I recently bought, a 1977 Star Wars Story LP, Disney's Black Hole Story LP, A George Carlin comedy record (7 words one!)., Oblivion, Under The Skin , Frozen (for the kids).My friends record store is trying to get me Event Horizon (Orbital plus orchestra!) but the record is pretty rare and the Aliens soundtrack.

Thanks for that site Ken, sounds legit.

Oh wow I had no idea Orbital had a hand in that. Good luck with the search! I believe the GOTG soundtrack was also released on cassette tape too, ha!

I bought the MP3 (high bit rate one) soundtrack to GotG and my kids love it! I also like it as well!


Another place/database for looking for vinyl is discogs.com....they have Event Horizon for about (20 euros) $24.00 (not bad) but it ships from the Netherlands! Pretty risky, but it could make it. I just don't want to be the guinea pig and get all excited and the album is in pieces! That would suck and I would cry...

Last night was a horror double feature on Netflix. First "At the Devil's Door" which is another Hollywood indie film about woman real estate agent trying to sell a house with a sinister background. It's a bit of a ghost story with some good creeps and scares in it. Three foreclosure signs.

Second was "Cam2Cam" which takes place in Thailand about an American woman who gets sucked into a dangerous online game. There are some ghosts in it too but it is more a slasher film. Two and a half bloody axes.

Syfy is serving a fresh plate of holiday horror this Saturday. Christmas Icetastrophe looks to be a good time. And it stars Carlos from Continuum. I'll be sipping on a hot toddy, warming my cockles by the warm glow of the DVR.

I kinda like Pandorum but when I put EH on, one movie is the better show. I would though add it to my collection if I find it in the bargain bin.

I see that VUDU has the first two episodes of "Ascension" free (I suspect same with the other usual suspects). Hulu+ also has the first three with commercials and not locked (provider needed) though web only.

I watched the first episode of "Ascension" on VUDU and have decided to watch the remaining two there because the PQ is stunning at 9 mbps. I like the first episode and seems writers have found a gold mine in the imagination of "conspiracy theorists."

After that episode I went over to Hulu+ to watch "Shock Value". Wow, what a little gem of a horror dark comedy. It's about a schlock horror movie director who witnesses a murder and enlists the killer to star in his next film. Of course this occurs with unforeseen consequences. Hulu+ presented it in 1080p with as good of PQ as Netflix. Just too bad they don't do DD+ yet. Be sure to wait for the surprise after the credits roll at the end. Four screaming severed heads.

You guys don't like shaky cam so I won't recommend "Dark Mountain" on Hulu+. It's a "found footage" movie about two guys and a gal that go to Superstition Mountain to shoot a documentary about the Lost Dutchman Mine. Not great but not back either. Two and a half dark caves.

I'm constantly in awe of the stuff Brian Conrad watches on Hulu. I bail out of most of their flicks inside of thirty minutes.

For me it's more of my tolerance of low grade stuff. Modern schlock just isn't the same as the schlock from the 70's or 80's. It looks too clean and clear BUT if they try and make it look old it looks worse. Planet Terror is a good example of how to instagram filter your movie.

I've only bailed a few times and usually just switch it to fast forward on dvd/bluray. Bailing is probably the smart thing to do but every now and then it gets better.

I did Eaters last night. Better than some but still watched mostly in fast forward.

Back in the 1970s and 80s you shot movies on film, it cost money to put a crew together. Low budget schlock was still done often by professionals. A kid with a Super 8 camera didn't have much of a chance.

Fast forward and anyone with a DSLR can shoot a movie. It's all about story. Plus colleges have been more film students than the industry can handle.

As for me I've always liked making films but that wasn't where it was at in the late 60s and early 70s where rock music was the thing to be in and what I was doing back then. Yeah, I did have a guy and his wife across the street me from playing around with making movies. Never figured he'd make it.

So I like to see what people do with "economy of means" so I'm probably looking at these films a little differently.

I see what you're saying but that doesn't excuse some of the garbage being pushed out into the world. It's the nature of the system today.

And it's not about to change except probably the small productions will get better. Using a consumer camera is a conceit because you can get away with bad footage. In fact the "Dark Mountain" had footage supposedly shot on a low end Canon DSLR and footage shot on an older phone not HD like todays smart phones do.

What we have is "democratization of the arts" as explained in the documentary "Press Pause Play". This even extends to music where you can make studio quality recordings on a laptop.

The problem with Hollywood productions is they get beat to death before production and there's little or no soul left to them. People who supposedly get lost in the wild seemed to have located a hair stylist and dry cleaners there. Homes look like home improvement showrooms not real homes. And they never get a ticket for not stopping at a stop sign.

OK, my movie rec is "Ragnorak" which was added yesterday to Netflix. It's a Scandinavian film so has subtitles. It's about an archaeologist to takes a group to an island in a lake to search for remains of Vikings who disappeared over 1000 years ago and tries to figure out why they disappeared. If the lead actress looks familiar it is Sofia Hilen known for her role in "Bron|Broen" the Scandinavian version of "The Bridge". Three and a half broken life lines.
