Showtime


Charlie Tahan from Wayward Pines and Gotham is now grown up.

I feel old.

It was a fun watch.

This was pretty good and maybe a future star in Dylan Penn and maybe she got the acting scenes from Sean and Robin Wright.

Shadow of the Vampire. A fantasy where F.W. Murnau films Nosferatu using a real vampire.We watched it years ago. It was even better on a second viewing.

It's so stupid it's making me want to stab my own eyes out.

The Long Goodbye (1973) — Pretty good 1970s-era neo-noir drama almost entirely relies on the performance from Elliot Gould and the mystery element was well done, though the ending was somewhat predictable but satisfying. ***/*****

Nightlight (2015)

I love Found Footage films and this one came recommended years ago by a local Horror Website/Group that I used to write for.

There are a small amount of interesting ideas but they are bogged down by sloppy execution, obnoxious characters and a razor-thin mythos.

HBO Max

Way too much James Corden and the only good time I was interested was when Cannavale was on the screen but pass on this

I thought this was going to suck or be mediocre but I loved him probably since the 80's was the era of my youth.


I don't think people fought each other back then for Nintendo but they did for Cabbage Patch dolls.

I wish HBO would put it out on Blu-ray and it could become a new classic.

The Jurassic Games (2018)

Elements of Battle Royale (2000), The Running Man (1987), Saw (2004) & Jurassic Park (1993) all blended in a decent B-Movie outing.

Doesn't do much to set itself apart as a Genre film but it's decently acted & paced.

Also considering the limited budget, I thought the FX work (and there is a lot) was better than expected.

The Jurassic Dead (2017)

Bad acting, bad wigs, bad FX work.

The sheer amount of bad Green Screen Backgrounds gave me a massive headache.

Homages were incredibly random and not as slick as Writers Milko Davis & Michele Pacitto thought they were.

All this film needed was more Zombie Dinosaurs and 10-times the amount of Andy Haman (Duque) punching said Zombie Dinosaurs in the face, to be more enjoyable.

They've put other HBO Max movies on Blu-ray so I'm pretty sure this one will too.

Casablanca - My first time watching this and I can see why it is considered one of the greatest films ever. Bogart is captivating as Rick, Bergman's Ilsa is beautiful and tragic, and the supporting characters are a colorful and memorable lot. I will definitely revisit this some day.

But those were the movies that also got theatrical releases and I think 8 Bit Xmas is a HBO Max exclusive

Starz

Maybe it another corny sports movie but I liked it.

It is not as if Hollywood is flooding the market with these type of movies.

I bet if this came out in the 90's and early 2000's it would have gotten a big theatrical release.

Wilson did a great job as the coach.
Spoiler:
The team not winning in the final game seems like the new trend in sports movies these days

Hack-O-Lantern (1988)

A silly Slasher/Satanic Panic film that is an absolute blast to watch if you are in the right mood.

Characters (though thinly drawn) are always doing something, keeping the movie moving at a surprisingly good pace.

Stay for the landslide of unintentionally hilarious moments, such as Tommy's (Gregory Scott) Music Video sequence and a random Stand-Up Comedy set.

Halloween Kills (2021)

Didn't care for it, though the ramped up gore was a bit of a surprise.

Thought the idea of the town mobilizing was initially a very interesting idea but executed very poorly.

Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin (2021)

Enjoyed the film, though it was clear early on that this film was shoehorned into being a part of the Paranormal Activity franchise

Not sure a reboot was necessary here and even then I'm not sure what this franchise is rebooting into with this 2021 entry.

Cruel Jaws: The Snyder Cut (1995)

This film is hilarious even by Director Bruno Mattei's schlock standards. It's best enjoyed with your favorite alcoholic beverage for maximum effect and laughter.

Even as a Sharksploitation film, Mattei goes a bit further than mimicking plot & characters, "borrowing" footage from Jaws (1975) as well as its various sequels.

It doesn't stop there. Mattei also lifts footage from his fellow countrymen via Enzo G. Castellari's The Last Shark (1981) & Joe D'Amato's Deep Blood (1989). The not-so-subtle use of John Williams' score from Star Wars (1977) is there as well.

Gaia (2021)

Outside some fantastic visuals and FX work (that seriously echo The Last of Us), this South African Eco-Terror/Body Horror film isn't all that interesting.

Pacing is an large issue as is consistent tension. There's just not enough in the plot for its characters to chew on.

Free on Peacock

You can't doze off with the rapid fire Woody Allen dialogue which was probably faster than a Sorkin dialogue.

It was ok or 3 out of 5 stars

Selena Gomez was the only one that did not belong.

Not horrible but not great either.
