Seriously? I'm getting ready to see Goosebumps with the family! Where am I supposed to post about that, huh?

    If someone links me to an existing movie thread I'm sure gonna feel foolish.

    The fact that nobody is posting in here makes me think I missed something... Anxiety!

    Whyyyyyy isn't anyone posting? Have you all colluded against me?

    There just haven't been any movies I really want to see out now.

    The only ones left this year that I want to see are hunger games and star wars.

    e: oh spectre too I guess

    Bridge of Spies came out today and I enjoyed it a lot! Kinda crazy that most of the posters/billboards out there aren't broadcasting the fact that it's a Spielberg film

    Evil Dead 2 October rewatch. Verdict? Still wonderful.

    Hell, I'm halfway inclined to start it again, this time with the hilarious commentary.

    Edit: wait did I say "halfway" I meant "doing it right now"

    I just watched alien

    That movie would have scared the shit out of me if I'd seen it in a theater and maybe a while ago so the effects wouldn't have been as noticable

    But even with that and having picked up so much stuff about the movie from pop culture it was still super tense a lot of the time and just really well done

    Last night I discovered that reports that Crimson Preak is NOT a horror movie are 100% accurate.

    The beginning almost felt like Pride and Prejudice and Ghosts Are Here Too. And that's ok! I was able to enjoy it for what it was, but if I hadn't known what I was getting into I might have been disappointed.

    Seriously hearing Crimson Peak isn't just a horror movie makes me want to see it more.

  • TallahasseerielTallahasseeriel Registered User regular
    Motion pictures? Just a fad I say.

    hearing it isn't just a horror story actually makes me want to see it less

    i was hoping for some hammer level spooks not jane austen with spectres

    Just got back from Crimson Peak!

    It's a hoot and a holler, probably the weirdest film I've seen in a while! The person playing Lucille (the sister of Hiddleston's character) is delightful. Easily my favorite part of the film.

    Not a straight horror flick, that's for sure. I'm... not sure how I would classify it actually.

    It's beautiful, because it's a Del Torro film, of course. The acting's all great. Probably wouldn't see it again, but worth checking out if the premise and trailer captured your attention.

    Why even watch movies when you could illegally walk back and forth across various streets?

    So, Crimson Peak was... weird.

    I was strangely bored yet thoroughly entertained the entire way through. It was odd.

    One crappy thing about living in Japan is the lack of choice + high cost of movie tickets. Like, John Wick is just now coming out here, and that's basically it for foreign releases till Star Wars. Which at least that is getting a same-day release here.

    Although the Tokyo Film Festival is coming up and they're showing Ran, so that should be cool!

    Whoa! Wake up, turn on the TV and Cool Runnings is on!


    This is going to be a good day!

    Wuthering Heights!

    Crimson Peak is like a slightly spookier Wuthering Heights.

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    I am waaaay less interested in seeing Crimson Peak now

    I was down with a spooky Del Toro Ghost Horror flick

    But I absolutely hate Victorian romance and Jane Austen in particular and am seeing a ton of comparisons

    So I saw Pan because it was at 6:55 and every other movie started at like 9:30.


    I should have waited until 9:30.

    Like, I wouldn't call it offensive

    "half-baked" is probably the best way to describe it. There's some potential and a halfway decent cast there, but the movie is super slow and plodding and confused and the final act is duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuumb.

  • BedlamBedlam Registered User regular
    For someone called "Black Beard" I find the main villain's beard to be severely lacking.

    They basically distributed his beard to the rest of his costume.


    I lay the blame pretty squarely on the writer/director team. The script is not great and the directing didn't help it much and some of the effects are pretty inexcusable for 2015.

    You will hate the first 25 minutes of it, then... it does get more into a mystery/ spooky vibe later on though.

    Can you imagine how awesomely tense it would be to watch it, not knowing there are sequels and therefore not knowing who is going to live or die?

    Saw Sicario the other day. Can't remember if I mentioned that in the last thread. Oh well, I did. It was good! And depressing! And tense! And that score.

    Saw a few trailers that intrigued me. Really hoping we can go and do a double-showing of Black Mass and Legend next month. Old school American gangster vs old school British gangsters :cool:

    Yeah I mean it has been around almost 40 years so a lot of the tension and mystery was undermined a little but it was still amazing

    I think I'm missing a big chunk of Del Toro's filmography, because I can't think of any straight up horror movies he's done.

    Obviously they must exist, I just haven't heard of them, which strikes me as odd since for some people he's a horror director first and foremost.

    Aside from just what he's directed, he's also been a writer or producer or creative consultant on a lot of other horror stuff
    He definitely has helped to put a lot of horror into the world
    I think his straight up horror films are Cronos or The Devil's Backbone or Mimic

    He did Mama. Which is pretty spooky.
