On a lighter note...by still dark..Is Chris Carters other series Millenium. Just got the complete series on DVD (No HD or Blu ray available unlike the X-Files). If you haven't seen it you can't rent the discs from Netflix.
When it rains, it pours. Sorry to hear about your mum. Glad she's doing ok. I remember watching Millennium when it originally aired on tv. Good stuff.

Thanks Wabo Oh darn I should have written you CAN rent Millennium discs on Netflix Never get on AVS before you've had your coffee or after you've had your beer.

Yes. Not terrible but TV limited what they could go into vs the book. I'm hoping the new version goes all out.

Watched Hardcore Henry last night. That movie is nuts. Took me awhile to get into their schtick but overall I enjoyed it. The rum might have helped too. That final battle was off the charts.


Thanks man!

I think I need Hardcore Henry in my life today so I will be picking that up at RB!

Lol. I'm coffee challenged as I type this. Need to hit the 'bucks in a bit.

One thing about King's tv adaptions is they were usually a miniseries taking place over 3 nights vs a typical 2 hour movie. And while you're limited by the tv rules, I find the miniseries format allows much greater character development and depth. I enjoyed almost all of King's tv movies. Even The Langoliers.

Hardcore Henry is nonstop. Once you get used to the first person perspective, sit back and enjoy the mayhem and carnage. The audio is crazy too. There's gun fire taking place all around you.

Watched some movies this past week.

Watched a Turkish horror movie called Baskin. Jeez, pretty crazy stuff. Heard some people walked out of the theater near the end because it was too much.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4935418/

Also watched Summer Camp. Thought it was pretty fun.

Watched The Mind's Eye. It was alright. However, right at the beginning of the movie there was a written message saying "This film should be played LOUD." Thought that was cool.

Re-watched Cloverfield (2008). Watched it around -8 dB on my volume control. Shook the room.

Re-watched Aliens (1986) Special Edition. I think this is my first time watching the whole movie from start to finish. Previously it was just bits and peaces. Great stuff.

Today I just got back from watching Don't Breathe. Thought it was fun and tense. Want to re-watch it alone at home to get the real tension and immersion going while cranking the sound.

The two new Netflix horror offerings yesterday are both Argentine films. "Resurrection" which I watched last night is just classic and excellent supernatural horror. Four creaky stairs.

I will also highly recommend trying Trader Joe's "Bollywood Popcorn". No bacon in it and it is vegan probably because tikka masala sauce would usually have yogurt in it and that wouldn't work too well on popcorn without adding the dreaded MSG.

Hardcore Henry is on my list to get to soon.


Not horror, but I think many here could enjoy The Brother's Grimsby. It had me squirming more than most torture porn movies but also had some insanely funny moments as well, which is nice.
