Another month down the drain and another month where I didn't get around to watching as many movies as I would've liked to. If I don't watch at least as many movies as there are days in the month, i'm usually a bit dissapointed in myself! But I did get around to some great stuff, new and old alike....
The Big Lebowski - This is one of those movies that I didn't really 'get' the first time I watched it years ago. Nowadays, I can't get enough of it.
Death Weekend - Nice little lost exploitation flick that no one seems to have seen.
The Devil's Backbone - I like it, but I don't love it.
Drag Me To Hell - Raimi delivers the goods once again. Had such a fun time with this.
Evil Things - If you get the chance to see this indy horror flick, don't pass it up. I'm happy to say i'm one of the ones who got to see it before it gets a big distribution deal and becomes all the rage. At least those are my expectations...
The Grudge 3 - The Grudge movies really aren't for me but Toby Wilkins (director of Splinter) made this one about as enjoyable as a Grudge movie could be for me.
The Ice Cream Man - Clint Howard as a killer ice cream man just never stops being anything less than amazing.
The Last Winter - Loads of potential and some great stuff, but ultimately went haywire.
Martyrs - I've talked about it a bunch on here but this is must see cinema that will stay with you for a looooong time, no matter your opinion of it. What the hell are you waiting for!
Masters of Horror : We All Scream For Ice Cream - You'd think a killer clown ice cream man movie would be awesome, and it could've been, but this one was far from such praise.
My Bloody Valentine (original) - One of my favorite 80's slashers.
My Bloody Valentine (remake) - I've really come to love this movie. Watched it twice this month, two days in a row! It's just plain gory fun.
Pan's Labyrinth - I don't think i'm as in love with this one as most people seem to be, but I definetly like it a lot.
Reservoir Dogs - Does anyone not like this movie?
A Simple Plan - Been one of my favorites for years. Definetly Raimi's best non horror work.
Seven Pounds - Uplifting and incredibly depressing. So glad I finally got to see this.
Sky High - Maybe I just have a hard on for Kurt Russel, but I dug this flick!
Truth or Consequences, N.M. - Another one that's been a favorite for years. I never hear anyone talk about this movie and I think that all boils down to the fact that it's not a well known movie and few have probably had the chance to see it. Add it to your Netflix!
Zack & Miri Make a Porno - Gets better and funnier with each viewing.
My favorite movie of the month? That honor would probably have to go to Drag Me To Hell but since I already sucked that movie off just the other day, i'm gonna go with....
After getting way into 24 several years back, I went on an all Kiefer diet which resulted in me seeing most of his filmography. And thank god for that because I probably wouldn't have ever discovered Truth or Consequences, N.M. otherwise. This little known flick from '97 not only stars Sutherland (and my boy Vinnie Gallo) but is also one of the few movies he has directed and he does a hell of a job on both fronts if you're asking me. It's not a perfect movie but there's just something about it that I can't get enough of and it's become one of the movies that I show to and recommend to just about everyone in my life. Like I said, add it on Netflix or just pick up a used copy on Amazon, which will only run you a couple bucks. Pop it in and enjoy the ride! If you usually agree with my taste in movies, you will not be dissapointed.
