180. The Last Stand (✩✩✩✩) - Download - I liked this one. It's more "no Country for Old Men" or "Heat" than a mindless action movie. Schwarzenegger has been a more mature actor since his comeback. Read my review here.

Re: Movies Seen In 2013

My Halloween Quadruple Feature

Pumpkinhead ★★ The creature effects are great, but it's a little too slow for my tastes.

C.H.U.D. ★ It's as bad as the title indicates. Something about sewer monsters and homeless and toxic waste.

Pet Sematary ★★★ I apparently didn't really know what Pet Sematary was about. It was a lot better than I expected. Denise Crosby is in it wearing some horrible pantsuits. That was entertaining by itself.

I Spit On Your Grave ★★ The 70's version. It's very much an exploitation film. I expected the revenge portion to be most of the movie, but it's almost like an afterthought to an hour and 15 minutes of chasing and raping.

Re: Movies Seen In 2013

Cloud Atlas - HBO go on Apple TV - I had to watch this over three days to finally finish it, which makes it unfair to then review it. So I'm going to re-watch it at some point in one sitting. I also plan on reading the book, to see if it helps to understand the movie a bit better.

Re: Movies Seen In 2013


75. The Shining (A-)

I watched this on Halloween, thus knocking another Kubrick film off my watch list. I'd place this one in the upper echelon of the ones I've seen; partly because the conventions of making a horror film result in Kubrick at least identifying somewhat with some of the characters, if only in terror (although he clearly doesn't empathize with Jack Torrance, much to Stephen King's annoyance). It gets off to a bit of a slow start, but the final hour is pretty riveting, despite the fact that the major beats of this story are all very well-known.

Well, I went ahead & watched the first Pumpkinhead sequel Wednesday night. About the only redeemin' quality it has is Garak as the small town sheriff.

I spent Halloween watchin' Romulan themed episodes from the Star Trek franchise.

The first new movie of November was RJ, starrin' Felicia Day with Doug Jones, Robert Patrick & Jason Mewes and a bunch of folks ya have never heard of. Pretty terrible movie about an underfunded government agency that shoots down asteroids that threaten the planet. And they say "motherfucker" a lot.

Followed that with the Jason Statham movie. It was more of a drama than an action movie, about a veteran hidin' from court martial on the streets of London who lucks into a place to stay and winds up gettin' back at the people who traffic in prostitutes while romancin' a nun.

Finished the eighth season of Bones yesterday.

Watched OHF this mornin'. I liked it quite a bit more than White House Down. I think North Korean terrorists make a more credible threat than a hodge podge of the FBI's most wanted.

I read the other day that they're workin' on a sequel set in London.

Started watchin' Leverage from the beginnin', got three episodes in before decidin' to switch back to movies.

Second movie of the day was TNTJ, a blacksplotation movie about a woman who avenges her brother's murder in Chinatown by sleepin' with the murderer, kidnappin' an undercover cop, and fightin' a room full of Asian thugs wearin' just her black undies (or white undies in one shot).

And now I'm back to watchin' Leverage for a bit.

Re: Movies Seen In 2013


76. Cast Away (B+)

One could argue that this movie represents the peak of Tom Hanks' film stardom, where what is virtually a one-man show set mostly on an island earned over $400 million worldwide (in Year 2000 dollars, over $500 million now). Catch Me If You Can two years later was also a hit; after that, it was kind of a low-key decade for him on film, until this year's Captain Phillips. Likewise, director Robert Zemeckis spent the next decade producing somewhat creepy-looking CGI movies, until last year's Flight (which also involves a plane crash, and also involves the PR aftermath, albeit to a much greater degree).

77. Fight Club (B+)

I remember seeing the ads for this movie when it came out and thinking it looked rather goofy (the bar of soap, in particular). Actually seeing it for the first time is an interesting experience; the atmosphere is very, very late 1990s, pre-9/11. Well-acted and well-directed, but I didn't think it was an exemplary piece of filmmaking that it's often cited as being (#10 on the IMDb, as of this writing). Also, the special effects in the final shot are rather bad, which takes away from the moment.

Watched a couple more Blaxploitation movies the today, thanks to Netflix's suggestion since I watched TNTJ.

FB has Pam Grier gettin' revenge against a honkey drug cartel for the death of boyfriend by posin' as a high priced prostitute.

BoD is a group of black Vietnam veterans who returned to the south and take on the KKK.

And between those two, I watched the 400th "new to me" movie of the year, Empire State which stars Liam Hemsworth as a security guard who helps his lowlife friends rob an armored truck company. Based on a true story of the largest cash robbery in U.S. history, it has Dwayne Johnson as NYPD detective investigatin' the theft.

Not too bad a movie.

Been watchin' first season Futurama and second season Leverage episodes today, too.

88. Supergirl: D
89. Escape Plan: B+
90. Prisoners: A
91. Disappearance of Alice Creed: A
92. Deathrace 2000: C+

The one time I saw this it was on basic cable, something like USA Up All Night or some such back in the early 90's and was edited, well, to death.

It's been floating in my Netflix queue awhile now and finally worked it's way up and seeing Stallone play the cliche Italian mobster driver Machine Gun Joe was a bit comedic. Especially when he opens up at the races start with that Tommy Gun.

Keeping in mind the era of the film and director this movie was decent but purely meant to be exploitive and shocking for the sake of it...I think. While there is a political narrative running through the film I didn't instantly recognize what I thought was commentary on 60s/70s political goings on but if there were I'd be curious to hear someones reply. The fact that the French are so vilified and given credit for being such a force struck me as odd. The French? Really? That had to be part of the joke.

Having seen it the film does have enough of it's own rough edits but clearly the cable edits I saw were more for censoring the nudity than anything.

Next up is Thor Dark World on Thursday evening!! Then I can stop avoiding that thread.

Re: Movies Seen In 2013

Death Race 2000 was the first movie I ever saw that had nudity. It was shown on HBO when I was a kid, I think around 1980 or 1981.

Awhile back, I saw the trailer for CV at a Drafthouse movie...can't remember which, probably a Weird Wednesday show, or something. Anyway, saw that the old Walter Matthau movie was on Netflix the other day, so I decided to watch it. Pretty cool to see a very young Andrew Robinson in a supportin' role. And the movie itself wasn't too bad, for a '70s bank heist story.

Followed that with LS&TSB. The Drafthouse was runnin' it as part of their "Pub Life" series in August, but I left Austin before it showed, so I missed out. I liked it. Pretty cool to see Jason Statham's first movie, and the endin' was fun, too.

And yesterday afternoon, I watched two direct to Disney DVD sequels. I watched THoND & Mulan before leavin' Austin durin' a Disney movie marathon I had on my roommates' Netflix. The younger nephew caught me watchin' MII and asked me why I was watchin' it. I told him, "because I can." Told my sister the same thing when she asked me why I watched it when she came home from work.

Been alternatin' between Leverage, Futurama & Breaking Bad between movies, or else the list would be longer for this update.

And I'm hopin' to get to the Thor sequel this weekend, since I watched the first earlier today, and have a plan to watch The Avengers tomorrow. Gotta gear up for the God of Thunder!
