Get a little rain out there Yankeeman? Got slammedd here this afternoon, also checking out Netflix. I think its time for Wolf Creek 2.
Just a little rain, nothing really more than an average summer day here, we got lucky here. I hope you didnt get too bad there.

I gotta look for Wolf Creek 2. Just finished watching THE BAY. Interesting, i enjoyed it. Filmed in the style of real clips from a bunch of video cameras, its about a small town where people are breaking out with lesions and bumps and are getting eaten from the inside out by parasites. My kind of plot. Not the hightest budget movie, but it held my intrest and it was worth my time watching it.

Interesting, I watched The Bay awhile back and while the plot was interesting, I keep thinking it wasn't really that scary and someone like John Carpenter could have gotten so much more out of it. I didn't oink it though. Off to Wolf Creek 2 along with everybody else. :)

That seems to be the general concensus on the Bay and what I remembered hearing about the Returned movie I watched last night. Intersting, but not overly intense. The Returned was a good enough watch. Not an intense, action, gorefest, but done well, and the leads were very good. The main gal totally reminded me of Emma Stone. I KNEW it was a foreign made flic since it was done so proffessionally, and honestly. Had a French feel to it, if that makes any sense, and was shot in Ontario. Was really hoping the ending would take a more visceral, shoot em up, zombie batcrap hits the fan approach but was still an ok ending. Well done, but I probably could have watched it with my wife...

I may save Wolf Creek 1/2 for Octoberfest

I have my systems running on UPS all over the house and U-Verse provides a UPS as the power supply for their gateway because it handles phone too. The TV and players even have a UPS. I did that when I had Comcast and hated waiting for the listings to refill after a 2 minute power outage. I awoke to "beep, beep, beep" the other morning but that was only a 30 second outage. Probably a squirrel committing suicide.

Not horror but a thinking man's apocalyptic movie is "After the Dark" on Netflix streaming. The description reads like yet another cheap made in a basement indie but it is not. Four mushroom clouds.

Alright dudes and dudettes have a safe holiday out there. We'll be "those people" but keeping it real with "Goliath."

WP_20140703_004.jpg

GOLIATH contains 36 all time favorites combined with fabulous technology never before seen at home. There are artillery shells with tails, others with crackle, and some with changing colors. Watch out for the palm trees, chrysanthemums and whirlwinds. This one is loaded with shells that give you two distinct breaks in the air at the same time. You will want to salute the spectacular new triple break, an industry breakthrough that paints the sky with three patterns at one time. A Great Grand Finale!!

The Tubes
The HDPE tubes are a single piece mold that assures optimal conditioning of the mortar for launching and unrivaled safety standards. No cardboard or fiberglass tubes can match the reliability of our mortars. Be wary of competitor's claims to the contrary. Other kits may use an HDPE tube, but a tube glued or stapled to a base cannot compete with our single piece molded base.

The Shells
The assortment comes with 36 reloadable shells including: 12 singles, 6 doubles, 6 triples, and 12 canisters.

The Goliath contains 36 shells with a wide array of effects:

Silver & Green Glitter
Purple Peony & Crackling Stars
Green & Crackling Stars to Silver & Purple Stars
Blue & Silver Glitter to Purple & Crackling Stars
Green Peony to Red Peony
Blue Peony to Purple Peony
Red & Crackling to Green & Crackling to Blue & Crackling
Green to Silver to Red & Silver to Blue to Silver
Green w/Red Palm to Red w/Green Palm to Blue w/Red Palm
Crackling to Color Chrysanthemum to Silver Glitter
Blue Stars to White Stars to Red Stars
Green Glitter to Golden Glitter to Silver Glitter
Multi Colored Stars
Green Peony
Yellow Peony w/Green Stars
Golden Glitter
Color Chrysanthemum
Crackling Single
Yellow Chrysanthemum
Silver Glitter
Crackling Canister
Jumbo Red Stars
Green Glitter w/Crackling Pistil
Blue Stars w/Crackling Pistil


The best part is no trash in the yard. It's all 5 miles away.

Woo hoo, looks like a good time. Running out to the armoury first thing in the AM. Had to work late all week and had no time to stock up. They have great 2 for 1 sales and sell the real deal. BTW,Wolf Creek 2, 3.5 road kill kangaroos.

Man I miss lighting off fireworks! I thought when I moved from CA to OH, I thought I could once again partake in fireworks, but nope. I can buy fireworks here but I can't light them off in my yard.:rolleyes: Oh well at least I get to grill out and drink today!


You guys have a great 4th of July!

"Banshee Chapter" was added yesterday to Netflix streaming. It's about a woman reporter played by Katia Winter who tries to find her boyfriend, played by Michael McMillian ("True Blood") who disappears after taking a mysterious drug related to MK-Ultra experiments. Along the way she teams up with a Hunter S Thompson inspired character played by Ted Levine ("Monk", "The Bridge"). Good conspiracy horror sci-fi fun shot a bit like a V/H/S story. Three vials of tri-methyl whatever.

^That movie sounds cool! I will check that one out in Oct!

You guys talking about Wolf Creek2 gave me motivation to see if it was at RB, well it wasn't so I rented Afflicted on DVD instead. For a found footage film, it was decent (3 Super strong Zombies) and worth a rent for the Oct pile. I also had time to play with the setting on my PJ and now I know why people pay $200+ dollars or more to get it calibrated. After a few hours I got the black level pretty darn good for this Pj and watching AVPR was a fantastic test with all of the dark scenes in that film. I can finally see in detail what is going on in the darker scenes!


Anybody here buying Cannibal Holocaust on BD? Lake Placid is also coming out this week from Shout that looks pretty cool!

^^^ I'll definitely watch it, but it looks like the may be getting a little carried away, maybe trying to outdo themselves.
