It Follows: 8/10

I’ve been meaning to watch this for ages and finally got around to it. Really enjoyed it and I’ve spent ages since watching it coming up with strategies for avoiding “it”. :lol:

Thor Rangorok: 8/10 Really solid, good visuals and funnier than most comedies.

Marshal 7/10 Good film about one of Thurgood Marshall's cases he defended whilst working for the NCAAP.

Rough Night 5/10- Few laughs but quite boring overall.

The Snowman 5/10- Almost as if a child wrote it as the twists and turns are so weak, it's just a case of this happened and then this happened. Also it wss odd that half the population of Norway had strong British accents. Someone told me the book its based on isnt very good either, so god knows why they turned it into a movie.

Jigsaw - 6/10

It's just a standard SAW sequel. Gore felt toned down and not look away moments. Twists and turns were obvious and it just ended with a way set for more sequels. It's not bad, it's just a filler sequel.

Saw this yesterday - 4/5.

Very engaging and very entertaining throughout, with lots of laugh-out-loud. But for my money not as good as Veep series 4/5 stuff (which I realise was post-Ianucci anyway). Not quite as verbally inventive/offensive as peak - but still a blast.

Revenge of the Nerds - rape by deception / 10. Pretty nasty by modern standards, and you would have thought even by the standards of the 80s.

Thor 3 - 9/10

May be my favorite marvel movie, as a Hulk fan boy I loved every second. So so much to love, amazingly well filmed, lush music, epic cameos, brilliant effects, strong character arcs and actual consequences for the marvel universe. Just so so good.

I also love this. Saw it at the cinema 3 times back in the day, bought it on video and also the DVD box set once DVD was invented. Shame everything that followed was either bearable or simply poor.

Yes?

2012

That was both depressing and laugh out loud silly.

Some nice special effects, though.

4/10

The Witch - 9/10

The wife and I chose to watch this as our annual Halloween flick, mainly because neither of us had seen it before and it seemed a bit different to the usual slasher/ghost films, and bloody hell it was different. Genuinely unsettling and the constant ratcheting up of tension and dread was just so good. Really quite a disturbing film, with almost impenetrable dialogue at times but that almost made it more intriguing and helped with the atmosphere.

Top film.

A fantastic film for sure.

Dat Goat! Best goat since The Church.

Just got back from seeing Happy Death Day 6/10

It's nice enough but not scary, hugely funny or unique. Just another horror movie. Also the trailer has a detail which reveals the killer's identity early on. So that's a bit gooseberry fool.

Thor: Ragnarok - 4/5

The comedy was a touch too try-hard in several places, but most of the jokes land and they’re great. They’ve made Thor really arrogant and smug, and a touch sweary for some reason. His character arc in his first 2 films is him veering away from that and gaining humility. Seems a bit haphazard to just bin all that off.

It was apparently at the request of Hemsworth who was sick of being the straight man. From what I've seen and heard it looks like it was a good decision.

It jars a little bit if you’re overly familiar with the first 2 Thor movies, but...hey, maybe his time hanging out with humans has lightened him up?
Great movie anyway - the 80’s vibe, the vividness of the colours, the sense of spectacle...top notch.

Leatherface 7/10 pretty good and more gruesome than expected.

Creep 2 7/10 just as good as the first one.

He was definitely the best on-screen goat I've ever seen, terrifying :dread:

Honestly though, I don't know why the father of the family didn't just challenge him to throwing a kettle over a pub? Problem solved.

Hellraiser - 6/10

+ Great monster design
+ Intriguing concept
+ Some good effects (for the time)

- Leading lady was pretty annoying
- Some really bad dialogue
- Some silly moments

As much as it pains me to say it, if this was re-made like-for-like, albeit with a few tweaks (slightly different cast, better dialogue and updated effects) it could be really good. As it is I feel it just falls down in a few too many areas, at least in 2017. Love the monsters though, and the scenes involving them. Is Hellraiser 2 worth seeing?

Candyman - 7/10

+ Liked the idea
+ Good performances all round
+ Some nice, gory scenes

- Ending wasn't great

This was one of those films that everyone talked about when I was at school; "Ooh have you seen Candyman, it's really scary", etc. I never really hear anyone talk about it in general film or horror film discussions, but I don't know why, as it was pretty good I thought. Maybe I'm just not seeing the discussions. Nothing amazing, but some good scenes and overall a decent watch.
