An American Werewolf in London (Full Moon Edition) - Watched this on Blu-ray, making it only the second time i've seen the film. It's obviously a classic so I really don't need to state my own thoughts, as they're not much different from anyone elses on this one, but I will say I can't wait to check out the Beware The Moon documentary. Again, if I can just get some free time where i'm not working, blogging, or hanging out with Jen!
Cocoon - This is one hell of a magical movie and I can't lie, I cry each and every goddamn time. It makes ya feel good, it depresses the hell out of ya, but I love to watch Cocoon. As for The Return, haven't seen it yet, but I can imagine it's as good.
Dead Snow - Didn't really feel like this one lived up to the hype, but it was kinda fun. Couple really cool gore sequences but other than that, I wasn't all that impressed.
Little Monsters - This is one of my favorite movies from my childhood and I was kind of avoiding watching it for the past several years for fear that it wouldn't be as awesome in my adult years. I was kinda right and a lot of the magic of watching this in my childhood is gone - but I still love it. Once a movie gets a hold of a piece of your heart, it never lets go.
Pumpkinhead - Pumpkinhead is by far one of the coolest, and most underrated, horror villains of all time and Lance Henriksen is also one of the most badass underrated dudes out there. Naturally, I love this movie (one word : Atmosphere) and I loved it even more because I watched it with a few pumpkin beers by my side. Pumpkinhead + pumpkin beer = heaven. Now I just have to track down the sequels (or do I?), which i've never bothered to watch.
The Real Story : Part 1 - This is a documentary DVD that I was sent from Smithsonian Networks that covers the Amityville case and the escape from Alcatraz. I can never get enough of Amityville, no matter how many programs I watch on it, and Alcatraz is endlessly fascinating, so this made for a nice pre-bed watch. Bring on Part 2!
Return of the Living Dead Part 2 - I don't know why so many people rag on this one. In my opinion, it manages to recapture a lot of the fun of the first one. Not all of it, but enough of it that it's an entertaining little ride. Awesome makeup effects, to boot. By the way, anyone seen Rave to the Grave or Necropolis? I remember seeing one of them a few years back and really liking it, but I can't remember for the life of me which of the two it was!
Wes Craven's New Nightmare - I've stated in the past that I really don't like this movie, but I was mostly basing that on my opinion of it when I was younger - I never dug it as a kid. Now that i'm older and can understand it better, I decided to rewatch it and I didn't mind it all that much. Still not my favorite Elm St. by any stretch, but it's pretty damn creative and for that I give it props. I can still see why I wasn't into it as a kid and I don't dig the leather pants though, Fred.
If you've seen any of the above movies, leave a comment with your thoughts!
