Friday the 13th Part 3 is actually my personal favorite of the series.
I watched The Fog on Blu-ray. Looks great and it's still one of my favorite horror movies of all time.
I know there's a lot of complaints about how the movie is "boringly slow" and I just don't get it.

Saw F13-3D in the theatre when it came out. Was completely blown away at Jason firing that crossbow at the screen!

The Dark. Pretty good creature feature. I thought it was hilarious when the main guy kept saying the monster wouldn't attack unless provoked, then when the monster starts attacking everyone left and right, he just says "Well, I guess it feels threatened."

Ghost of Frankenstein is my personal favorite of the bunch.

Watched the non-Hammer but still has Peter Cushing as Sherlock Holmes version of "The Hound of the Baskervilles". Way less interesting and Cushing was in it for maybe 15 minutes.

Found I'd forgotten much of There Will Be Blood so I rewatched it.

Damn that's a good movie.

Daniel Day Lewis is the king of old-timey voices.

Yeah, and the Watson in this version did nothing except send letters for a solid hour and 10 minutes.
The Hammer version is awesome however. Right up there with Horror of Dracula.

Someday I will finally watch this and No Country for Old Men. Back to back.

I watched some documentary on Nazi doctors, but it was really nothing new.

I have a bunch of crap in my Netflix queue but I almost never have time to sit down and watch anything. If on the off chance I do sit down, I zonk out.

The Rewatched Daniel Day Lewis film festival continued with Last of the Mohicans.

I was kind of confused because I thought in the book that Cora was biracial (?) and in the movie she pretty clearly wasn't, they never addressed it. Also, I remembered why I hated the character of her sister, who was basically every single kind of useless there was until she took the flying leap off what looked like Stone Mountain.

For some reason that movie creeped me out the first time I saw it. No idea why.

evilspeak - me through first 2/3 of movie "ok, but when does this get good" me through last 1/3 "i guess it's then." i take back any negative things i said about this movie throughout the duration of it. blood-soaked clint howard flying through a church with a sword while pigs eat all the other people (other people are all assholes btw)

samurai fiction - fuck this movie. i tend to abide by a rule that prevents me from watching samurai movies that came out sometime after 1990, but sometimes i break this rule... and then remember why it exists in the first place. this movie is balls.

Pacific rim, a bit better than I was expecting and the cg was actually good not just ok.

I love bottle rocket. I think it's fucking hilarious but I think that about most movies I watched while tripping.

Ju-On: White Ghost/Black Ghost.

I'd been putting it off because I have such a love-hate relationship with Takashi Shimizu movies. The Proto-Ju-Ons were borderline scary. The V-Cinema Ju-Ons were scary, at least for a while, before Takako Fuji quit. The American Grudge movies were absolute horrendous bullshit. So I was a little apprehensive about the tenth anniversary rehash of the entire ponderous thing. It sat in my Netflix queue forever because I couldn't bring myself to watch one more fucking slog through the whole deal. Yesterday, though, I was feeling very blah and what the hell, so here goes.

Pros:
Very little rehash of the Saeki murders. It was hinted-at as being the same house, but I don't know that it was. A wadded-up portrait of the Saeki family was discovered in the kitchen and that about covered it.

White Ghost and Black Ghost were short, standalone movies, similar in theme, both conceived by Shimizu but directed by two different people. They were nonsequential, and headed with the names of different players in the drama, which is pretty much how these films go. If you had no trouble with the Ju-On movies, you'll fall right in step with this.

There's a staircase, and no one crawls down it croaking.

There are some genuine spooky moments and some genuine jump scares, along with some genuinely unsettling shit.

Two Toshio cameos. He doesn't meow in either one.


Cons:

Grandma with a basketball? REALLY?

THAT INFERNAL FUCKING CROAKING

In Black Ghost, there are a lot of ghost-appearance scares that you would completely miss if she hadn't been making The Takashi Shimizu Ghost Noise (tm). This is because the film was shot in a very dim palette and the translation to TV makes it even dimmer. Sometimes you think you can make out the whites of their eyes. Sort of.

Some hideous CGI, but could have been on purpose.

Blatant Tomie ripoffs, especially in Black Ghost.

So, I'm not entirely regretting watching it, but I didn't completely enjoy it either.

Heh, I wasn't sure you would ever watch that one, Kitsa. Nice review.

House II. As much as I like House, I can't say for sure that I prefer it over House 2. They're both so much fun in completely different ways.

This guy at work has been all "You have to see Snatch man it's the greatest" and I haven't seen Snatch yet and he's been telling me about it every day for nearly four months.

The last film(s) I watched wasn't Snatch

Dextire: did you watch it?

Milhouse: I bet you haven't watched twin peaks either.
