Because it's the newest movie on your list.

The Babadook was ok but I expected it to be a little more frightening. At different times the main characters were annoying to me. I'm glad I watched it but I'm not sure I'll be watching again.

I'm reverting back to my old list because there are some movies on my current list that I really want to watch now.

My list:
1. The Loft (2014)
2. The Identical (2014)
3. Frankie & Alice (2010)
4. The Substitute (1996)
5. Grey Gardens (2009)
6. The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover (1989)
7. We Are What We Are (2013)
8. A History of Violence (2005)
9. The Sisterhood of Night (2014)
10. Flight (2012)

I liked Burnt Offerings but I can easily see why others wouldn't. I went in knowing it was PG and wouldn't going to show much gore, although the end with the car surprised me. The twist was all but given away at the very end, right before it happened but up to that point it could have been anything.

I never found Bette Davis attractive. I think she has bug eyes and reminds me of the monster bounty hunters from The Last Starfighter.



He has Bette Davis eyes


I also think Drew Barrymore is hideous. The shape of her head reminds me of Rocky from Mask.

And while we're at it, Kim Kardashian has the butt of Thelma Harper from Mama's Family and Kanye West has Thelma's stern expression.

Horror challenge list
1. Lady Vengeance
2. Prince of Darkness
3. Versus
4. The Beast Within
5. The Nesting
6. Curtains
7. Thou Shalt Not Kill... Except
8. Leprechaun: Origins
9. The Man with 2 Heads
10. The Omen (2006)

My regular list, saved for after the horror challenge

I'm breathing down the neck of 100 in the Horror challenge and haven't been in the mood for non-horror so haven't gotten to my non-horror title. I may work it in tonight depending on mood...

I somehow missed seeing Pumpkinhead when it came out in the 80's. I'm glad I finally watched it as I am a fan of Lance Henriksen.

Didn't see the post till this morning. I'd been working on the last season of Freddy's Nightmares. I'll get to it later today, then switch to comedy.

I always liked Pumpkinhead, not so much the sequels.

Curse of the Golden Flower (2006) is a interesting and very good period piece about family betrayal in the Chinese court, specifically The Forbidden City. It has a very twisted plot, subterfuge, and martial arts action with some incredible scenes.

I inadvertently watched Pot o' Gold (1941) during the Comedy Challenge so am replacing it on my list. I really enjoyed it and was surprised to discover it's a musical. I had no idea going in and had purchased it because of Jimmy Stewart and Paulette Goddard, both of whom I enjoy seeing in films.

Random.org says you get #10: Flight. That was used as I know nothing about any of the films on your list.

I'm glad you selected Avanti! as I've wanted to watch it for some time. It's from a favorite writer/director, Billy Wilder, with a favorite actor, Jack Lemmon, and the very attractive Juliet Mills. While it's a rom/com it's quite scathing at times with lots of humorous social commentary. It actually has a *nude scene* with Lemmon and Mills which is *not* exploitative and actually pivotal to part of the plot! What a concept! The film bombed when released. I don't get that as it's a excellent, almost perfect, romantic film full of witt and sentimentality.

Eagle vs Shark (2007) was OK, but just OK. It's frequently awkward watching the main character being a total buffoon/jackass in how he treats himself and his family/loved ones. It just isn't my idea of "funny." While there *are* moments I found it mostly uncomfortable to watch. The main female character should have dumped him after going to the party but we wouldn't have then had a movie...

Although Brave was not one of my favorite Pixar movies, I did find it enjoyable and the animation was beautiful.

Outcast (2014) was barely "just OK" suffering from a severe case of mis-casting, poor direction, and poor writing. Hayden Christensen's skills have improved a bit from the horrible performances in the Star Wars prequels, but just a bit. He's *not* up to the challenge presented by this film and is frequently out acted by his co-stars. Nicolas Cage was the worst case of mis-casting I've seen in some time. His performance was simply horrible as he repeatedly proved he should never be chosen for films of this type.

I don't know what, if anything, the writer and director have done before but it looks, sounds, and feels like a first film for both. The writing was pretty basic presenting a "by-the-book" story of "redemption" with a cast that, mostly (see above), helped pull it off to a degree. The directing was all over the place style wise, as if the director couldn't decide just *how* he wanted it filmed.

I wanted to like Empire of the Sun, but something seemed off in the pacing. At times it seemed to jump ahead and other times it dragged.
