Yeah, those OS/2 machines took forever to boot up. We used to call it a "half OS" system. I went to a talk given by IBM promoting using OS/2 for kiosks and they were embarrassed because only only 2 people showed up.

To think some knucklehead(s) at IBM allowed Microsoft to dominate the personal computer industry is one of the biggest gaffes in business history.

The way in which the protagonist finds the killer of his daughter is a little ex machina, but the payoff is different from most other movies.

Edit: Its the 2012 Australian film I am talking about.

Not horror but I watched "Maps To The Stars" the other night on DVD. Redbox had a 25 cent rental deal for DVDs. Like I say not horror but it is a Cronenberg film so weird enough and contrary to some of the public reviews I rather liked it.

In other news I see the Memorial Day box office was a disaster. When are the Hollywood execs going to realize that a lot of the public can't afford a night at the movies anymore? Actually Cronenberg's film is bit about Hollywood and the weird way it works.

Memorial Day is a holiday where people go out out of town with the extended weekend, and go outside. Traditionally a bad movie weekend more years then not.

Interesting list.

Extraterrestrial was pretty fun. Sure, it was completely paint by numbers but Michael Ironside doing a home grow, conspiracy dude, was worth watching the movie for.

Indeed a solid flick. I'd like to see that VHS sequence on aliens expanded a bit.

Agreed. The relationship, conspiracy and history with the aliens would have been a fun back story to tap into. It did seem odd to me that this alien race with such superior technology would choose to behave like common slashers in a 2015 movie? Torture for the sake of torture and a ship full of bodies like it's a back woods house in Wrong Turn movie?

Added to my queue. Extrasterrestrial had some pretty potent audio going for it as well.

Well we might be the backwoods in galactic terms and those aliens drove their Space RVs here.

Anyone seen Unfriended or Always Watching: A Marble Hornets Story? Both are being released in theaters on the 28th here. I'm leaning towards Unfriended because I like the idea and what I saw in the trailer. Not sure if either one is worth watching in the theater though.

After wasting an hour of my life on Extraterrestrial, I settled into Jinn.






A much better "waste" of time.
About halfway thru it occurred to me this must be a failed TV series pilot.
If not, it certainly plays like it.

Maybe it got better after the 1 hour mark...I don't know.
For me, it was more of a been there, done that movie.


The last straw was the scene where

I couldn't stop myself from saying "seriously?" out loud.
Very crappy writing, an insult to the audience's IQ.

That is modern horror film making technique. EACH horror movie needs to have the red shirts do something that is unacteptably dumb, makes the audience feel better about themselves. 80's horror it was just the kids that have sex get killed, that was their dumb move. Now, since kids are texting pics of their privates all over the internet, the film maker needs something else. So, you get people stepping out of the jeep, in this case, or not runing sideways when a big, round ship is rolling on top of you.
