Speaking of swine I watched "Trailer Park Terror" last night on Hulu+. This film was shot very 70s style and with some familiar actors in it. You'll probably recognize Nicole Hiltz from the "In Plain Site" TV series. It's a little different kind of zombie movie. Three and a half severed hands.

Did As above, so below last night. It was just ok for me. I liked the actors, and the way they handled the tunnels keeping it fairly real. But not enough suspense, tension, action or definate antagonist for my taste. Kind of reminded me of Grave Encounters but not as tense, though I liked the actors better in this, than Grave. I would give it 2.75 mediocre zombies.

I just pre-ordered the Blade Trilogy on BD for only $13.99, not a bad deal and I cannot believe I don't own these yet on BD.

I just have the first and second. I like the second one the best of all three, great cast too! I was reading a fitness article yesterday that said Reynolds put on like 20lbs and was down to 8% body fat for Blade 3 and maintained that for Green Lantern as well. That's some serious dietary discipline right there!

These combo deals are nice. I have 2 of the 3 as well. I am sure they were under $10 each, but now all three is a sweet deal. I picked up the Riddick pack at Christmas and really enjoyed watching them all together. A buddy had one and two and the third was similar in price to the four pack.

I like these two series. Good casts, production values and are more enjoyable now without higher expectations.

RR was pretty skinny before he beefed up. Lean, but pretty thin. It is not without reason that he could have put on the weight with solid training, and diet, but Hollywood has had many stars that got a helping hand...

Blade rocks! $14 for all three is a great deal. I think I paid $9 each for mine.

Fans of Katherine Isabelle might want to check out a weird little number called "88" currently available on Netflix WI (or paid rent elsewhere). Co-stars Christopher Lloyd, Michael Ironside and there appears to be a cameo by an uncredited but well known horror director as a bowling alley snack bar operator. A bit "Memento" like and oink might oink it but I gave it 3 and a half fugue states.

I totally forgot the Ryan Reynolds was in the Blade series! And 8% body fat is pretty damn lean! I like the first and second ones as well and it seems I am just gaining Trinity as freebee.


I always wonder if Marvel, now owned by Disney would ever be a part of a movie like Blade again? I would like to say yes, but I doubt it...

Always have to give a movie a go with those two actors!

Yes, the article was discussing significant weight loss/gains in the wood. Chris Pratt dropped 40lbs of man fat for GOTG.

The cast alone sounds worth a look!

I'm aiming for 10%, I just refuse to give up weekend pizzaburgers and beer Chris Evans had a pretty crazy regiment for WS, he added 30lbs with high protein diet and lots-o-lifting (no cardio). He said

I doubt we will see Marvel do anything R rated but I wouldn't be surprised if we had a Blade re-boot or sequel sometime soon. I'm not sure who owns the rights to Hellboy but I'd really like to see a third installment there. The villain from Blade 2 was the villain in Hellboy 2 (dots connected )

I would love to see full GDT treatment for a Hellboy 3. I like the humor, but also rachet up the horror aspect and darken the tone. Maybe, brutally kill off Hellboy's squeeze early into the film by nastya$$ demonic entities, and then HB goes full revenge mode for the rest of the flic, picking up a few new sidekicks along the way.

I enjoyed certain elements but there was quite a bit of eye rolling going on in our house with regard to the "problem solving". Overall, it gets a C++.

Another movie that I think is in line with all things Horror, is releasing Feb 17 is The Andromeda Strain (1971). It is a Best Buy exclusive ($11.99) but I think it would be worth the buy on BD.

Watched Absolute Zero last night. Normally you'd think any movie starring Jeff Fahey and Erika Eleniak is cinematic gold. Sadly, this movie disproves that theory.

For those interested, Shout! Factory is having a sale on some of their titles.

https://www.shoutfactory.com/editori...667.1422582184

Get $10 off any purchase of $50+
Get $3 shipping on orders of $50+
Get 15% off orders of $80+
Get FREE shipping on orders of $80+ (U.S. and Canada)
Get 20% off orders of $200+

I preordered Escape From NY (collector's edition) from them. It's $2 more than Amazon, but you get an 18" x 24" poster and it ships two weeks early. Easily worth an extra $2.

I'm tempted to add Class Of 1984 (collector's edition). I haven't seen that film since the days of renting VHS tapes.

Hmm, that is surprising.

I have been a fan of miss Eleniak's ever since she came out of the cake in Under Seige.

I watched "A Good Marriage" which is a Steven King story (wrote the screenplay too) with Joan Allen and Anthony LaPaglia on NF. Not exactly scary but entertaining. Three and a half fish earrings.

Today they've added last years remake of "The Town that Dreaded Sundown."
