I've been a long time COD guy as well and play with a pretty good group of guys from avs but blops 2 kinda killed it for me. I got rid of the game over a month ago and my Gold subscription expired and I have not missed any of it. With all I have going on right now it's just one less thing I feel like I have to give some time to.

I just got a Vita and have been playing Star Wars pinball and Dragon's Crown.
I could never get into multiplayer stuff. Had a lot of fun with BF though.

I have both the PS4 and Xbone on pre-order but am seriously considering canceling. Like you I have less time due to the kids and the time I do have I enjoy more watching movies or one of the few shows I watch with the missus. Titanfall looks awesome but really after not having the Gold membership for a while I just don't feel like I am missing much... maybe my frame of mind will change when I'm back to work and can recognize some form of normalcy in our routine.

Going in on PC then PS4 then Xbone when the price drops. First console launch I'm sitting out on since I started buying my own stuff at PSOne.

I thought about canceling my ps4/BF4 but winter is coming soon and I will probably regret canceling it. The flip side is I can go Carte Blanche on some BDs if I do cancel this.


I finally got VHS2 tonight and I watched The Shining this afternoon.

I've heard this from several people. Citing launch lineup is just not worth the upgrade.

I saw Room 237 on BD at my local store but passed for now. I saw it on streaming earlier this year and liked it but not sure how much I'd like it a 2nd time. Has anyone else seen it?

I'm tricurious but did enjoy My Amityville Horror.
post #6997 of 9764
Just WAY too much going on right now. Lots of early bedtimes because I've been getting up at oh-dark-thirty. But we did get to squeeze in...

Monsters, Inc. (2001) - Had to get my daughter in on the fun and she enjoys it. Sure, there are no fast-running zombies or over-the-top gore but it has something a lot of movies don't have and that's heart. Stunning colors, great monsters, and a plot that keeps your attention. Besides, what other monster movie ends up with the word, "Kitty!" (4.5 Harryhausens out of 5)
post #6998 of 9764
Watched Lords of Salem. Liked it better than Zombie's Halloween efforts. It's sort of retro, it starts slow,but when all hell starts to break loose... If you like Zombie's stuff give it a spin, it does feel like his vision. His wife actually is pretty convincing in her role.

I really want to see this as well.

6. The Shining, Stanley Kubrick, 1980 BD. Well I feel like I am preaching to the choir so to speak about this movie. Just like Aliens, Psycho, Carrie this movie defines the Horror movie genre as well. I know people have issues with this move not being 100% to the Stephen King book but I say Kubrick brought his vision on what The Shining should feel to the audience. The book is creepy but I really don't know of any director back then that can do as well as Kubrick did (although I could be wrong). Well on to the movie and it starts kinda 'slow', but the music and majestic mountain views in my mind sets the tone in the beginning. We see Jack Torrance interviewing for a watchman job at a hotel, which is played spectacularly by Jack Nicholson. His wife Wendy (Shelly Duvall) is left at home to care for their son Danny. Through the interview at the hotel with Jack and a conversation with a Dr and wife, this solidifies the foundation of this physiological terror movie. I love Kubrick's work on 2001 and you see the perspective shots all the way through this movie and it works great! Also I believe this was the first film to use stedi-cam technology (Danny running through maze). I know most have seen this movie here but it is a real treat on BD!

What I find funny is when I mention The Shining to people that don't watch Horror movies (like us) they get really creeped out! Especially married women, when you tell them (or act it out) the part of Jack going after Wendy. I believe in the back of their minds they feel if they see that crazy eyed Jack stare from their husbands, they know they are doomed! Even today I get creeped out at the whole room 237 scene ha!

Yeah I hear that and I see that from all of the ps4 threads. I will be happy with BF4 because I will be occasionally play during the week but I do actually have a need for another BD/DVD/game console in the house. This also goes with my 'plan' for internet only tv watching, so the circle will be complete.

May be my favorite Pixar flick....the voice of the little girl is killer.wink.gif

DOH!
Why hasn't it occurred to me to re-watch it this month?!? redface.gif
post #7004 of 9764
Just saw "Gravity" (in a commercial theater, of course). Tense as F**K but not a horror movie, so I'm not counting it! Highly recommended, though. A truly awe-inspiring, gape-jawed, holy-crap-did-you-just-see-that movie like "Gravity" is not only why we go to the movies...it's why we make movies.

This is a busy weekend for working movies in. F1 racing is this weekend. I watched practice this morning (DVR'ed it around 1am) then did my movie after lunch, and will try to do that Sat and Sun too as Sat morning I will have to watch qualifying and Sun morning the actual race. Then if wifey wants to do something in the afternoon, i gotta tell her that i have to watch a horror movie!! What about you Oink, you watching Korea F1?

On top of everything else, this looks like the LAST of the 70 degree weather until April....and that means getting in my last fishing expeditions until the spring.

I have been wanting to see this movie for a while! Everyone I know that has seen it says it is worth a trip to the theaters! I will definitely buy this on 3DBD when it comes out! Good to hear some guys here recommend this movie!

Nice! Rum sounds good but I had pizza and beer last night.

My sentiments exactly. Gravity is an amazing movie experience.

I rent I Saw The Devil yesterday but unfortunately I couldn't watch it (no time), so I guess I'll have to watch 2 movies today to get back on track! I'll leave a few comments about ISTD as soon as I eject the disc (notice I didn't say "oink the disc" biggrin.gifwink.gif )

7. V/H/S/2, multiple directors, 2013 First time viewing DVD. I enjoyed the first VHS and I know it got mixed reactions here. Fear not because this one is way better and it honestly surprised me! Just like the first VHS we have the setup of that home with the multiple tv's and VHS tapes. Then the four episodes play out, first on is Phase I Clinical Trials, A Ride in a Park, Safe Haven and Slumber Party Alien Abduction. I don't want to give much away because the movie is fairly new. There is something here for everyone and there is plenty of gore, suspense, scares, wtf and Boobies! There were even a couple of parts that made me jump out of my seat! My favorite episodes are Safe Haven and the Slumber Party Alien Abduction. I highly recommend this film for Halloween watching if you like the shaky cam/faux-documentary style film making. For a DVD the PQ/SQ was also good, SQ was crazy on the last one though!

You guys are killing it ! While I haven't been able to watch any movies so far due to wife's horror phobia and other issues I won't get into,I've thoroughly enjoyed keeping up with your reviews and side comments.I did start "Let Me In" last night/early morning,before F1 qualifying,going to try to finish later this morning. smile.gif

October 4th:

Livide - 3.5 vampiric ballerina zombies
This is my second time viewing this one and I actually enjoyed it much more this time around. For anyone not familiar this is a French film with english subs about Lucie a care-giver in training that meets the seemingly comatosed Jessel who lives alone in a very large, old, creepy house. Lucie is lead to belive that Jessel has "treasure" and notices a key around her neck. It's Halloween night (which seems to serve almost no purpose for the mood of the film) and Lucie is convinced by her boyfriend and his buddy to break into Jessel's home and find the treasure. Things obviously go south and the three find them selves trapped in the house and Jessel missing from her bed. This movie has a lot of great things going for it. The flashbacks to Jessel's ballet teaching and relationship with her daughter were fantastic but a bit too short. There was some fantastic practical effect and gore but if you go in expecting the makers of Inside (À l'intérieur) to soak the film in gore you'd be disappointed. This is a stylistic tale of two bloodthirsty creatures cursed to the boundaries of the property (for reasons not explained) and a young girls attempt to break to free. Enjoyable and unique but could have really been a 5 star flick if they'd ironed out a few of the issues. 3.5 vampiric ballerina zombies

Yeah, my crew officiated a high school football game last night and proceeded to hit a few bars on the way home. Got home at 1:00 AM and was in no shape to start a movie. Hopefully I'll get in 2 today...

Lol, my wife is starting to get irritated about all my horror movie watching but I have been giving her fair warning for the past 365 days!


Just an Fyi, Target has some orange and purple string lights (22' long with a hundred lights) for $4.50 a box! I couldn't pass up so I bought a few of them! Also they have some of those lenticular scary pictures for $1.00!


Dude I need to see that Livide! I have been thinking about VHS2 and there was so much stuff small details shown on that film that if you blink, you might miss it!


Everyone is doing great and I need to get to watching some more Horror!

Could be worse if you were glued to sports 365... 31 movies in 31 days is pretty mild by comparison.

Livide really is a unique and well done movie. My only gripes are some of the fantasy elements that just didn't blend well with the rest. I imagine this will get a higher rating next year as it seems to be more enjoyable on repeat viewing. My initial viewing was tough because I had been waiting for the movie so long and had so much excitement and anticipation that it would have been hard for anything to deliver on.

4. Midnight Son (first-time viewing)
A young night watchman/artist with a severe allergy to sunlight develops a taste for human blood at the same time he's fumbling his way through is first sexual relationship with a gothy bar waitress. I'm guessing this one got greenlit after the success of Twilight, but to compare the two isn't fair or accurate. Sort of a modern emo take on George Romero's "Martin" combined with "Let The Right One In", "Midnight Son" is the first vampire movie I have seen that likens vampirism to drug addiction--he's making back alley deals behind the hospital dumpster for biological waste so he can get his blood fix, hiding his blood habit from others, etc. The mood is somber and serious, but the tension is never allowed to get very high, although things pick up towards the end. The repeatedly thwarted sex scenes start to feel frustrating, as I am sure was the director's intention, but it starts to get annoying as the movie feels like it's treading water in the middle. Things get more interesting when we get to see the manifestation (and contagiousness) of vampirism in others. "Midnight Son" isn't a bad film at all, looks nice and sets an atmospheric if quiet mood, but there isn't a whole lot here to get excited about either. 3 out of 5 stars.

01) TORTURE ROOM - 2 brainwashed Zombies
02) DEAD SNOW - 3.5 semi-intelligent Nazi Zombies
03) THE DEMENTED - 1 germ-infected Zombie

Last night's fest was "I Spit on Your Grave 2" which like the original and remake of the original is in two acts. The fun part is always the second "revenge" act. I'm giving it three Bulgarian hoods.

Tonight I'll give Syfy's original movie "Scarecrow" a chance.

Had this movie in my hand yesterday at Blockbuster. Ended up grabbing something else instead. The drug addiction reference sounds a little like True Blood.
