Caught Spring last night. Quite interesting movie that walks a line between horror and fantasy. Three and a half voids and tentacles out of Lovecraft.

Watched, or shall I say breezed through Found. Didn't do anything for me which is why I sorta forwarded some parts. It reminded me of A Serbian Film which also didn't anything for me. Don't get me wrong, I like blood and gore in movies but when the whole purpose of the movie is just to show that while having no other qualities, I get bored. I don't find blood and gore scary (on their own).

Weird how you can see such a different movie.

On another note there was also some extremely bad/cheesy acting by some of the actors/characters.



Maybe I'll give a second viewing sometime later and hopefully understand what "it's all about."

If you didn't like it that's OK. I'm glad you gave an honest opinion. Negative reviews are just as valuable as positive ones. I'm overdue for giving one myself.

American Burger (2014)
"A bus load of American students, all jocks, cheerleaders and nerds, are on a culture trip in Europe when they stumble upon a mysterious Hamburger stand in the deep European woods, selling 100% American Burgers. A visit to the Burger Factory behind the stand, renders them trapped in this unknown territory, and they are about to realize that European notion of American Hamburgers is terrifyingly different from what they're used to..."

A horror comedy that is neither scary nor funny. I wanted to like this one but it was flat. The acting, location and camera work was all pretty good and they had a solid idea to work with, but it just wasn't exciting.

I wasn't knocking him, I like it when people see things differently, except for Sharknado. It's bad in the not good way.

In defense of Found, the budget was 8 grand.

Darn. Sounds like South Park meets Hostel. Or a VHS segment, maybe that's what the idea needed one the the VHS directors.

"Bring out yer dead!".."Wait I'm not dead yet!"..(Sound Austrian here) "WRONG !!" (You know what happens next..)

Four horns but I'm probably late to the party on this one.
Watched last night.
Pretty good film.
The horns thing was pretty clever IMO.

Although there are horror elements, I agree this isn't really a "horror" movie.
DR was very good, as well as the rest of the cast.


The 3rd act goes on a little too long and could have been edited down IMO.
However, definitely worth a rental.

I guess our local community is embarrassed about Sharknado or it would be bragging about the director being from here. My bet though if I asked the mayor he may not even know what "Sharknado" is. OTOH, I didn't venture downtown last week as I usually do and there was a production company there shooting a PSA with a crew of 30. That would have been fun to watch. About a decade ago I popped into the former Costco building which had become a Walmart and there was a crew there shooting a Walmart commercial.

The mayor of any city within 500 miles of the ocean better know what a Sharknado is. Don't you guys have plans for probable disasters? It's going to happen, just a matter of when. That would be like the mayor of Oklahoma City not knowing what a regular tornado is.
