The Strangers: Prey at Night (2018) - no back story or very memorable scenes just a whole lot a chasin'. Christina Hendricks is practically wearing a burka which defeats the purpose of having her in the movie. 3.75/5

"Halloween" (2018)
40 years after surviving Michael Myers' original killing spree, a still-traumatized Laurie Strode must protect her family when the serial killer escapes from the asylum and hunts her down.
...so essentially, this 21st century update of the classic horror series is "Terminator 2," with Laurie in the Sarah Conner role.
The flick didn't suck, but I wasn't as blown away by it as some seemed to be. There are some good gory kills and it was fun to pick out the many affectionate nods and references to past "Halloween" flicks, but overall it was unnecessary.

I agree that it didn't suck but I had two issues with it: first, the film had no humor and secondly, I saw it on my own in the theatre. That last one sucked.  Thumbdown

THE BLUES BROTHERS (1980)

"Jake Blues, just out from prison, puts together his old band to save the Catholic home where he and brother Elwood were raised."

Having watched The Blues Brothers 2000 many years ago and listening to the soundtrack in my car plenty of times, I decided to finally watch the original. I enjoyed it but in a different way: while it does have more funny moments and I think a lot more chemistry between Belushi and Aykroyd, I consider it inferior on the musical side. Both movies are awesome tho, and definitely a different experience from anything else. 4/5 stars!

Fun fact: this may be the only movie that I enjoyed which is considered a "musical". I hate those kind of movies with all my hearth, and as soon I found out one I'm about to watch is all sing and s**t, it gets instantly destroyed. All those Tim Burton stuff that everybody loves so much, well... I hate them, sorry.

You can add musicals to my list of "Things I Don't Get".  TongueOut

TERROR AT BLOOD FART LAKE (2014) - A steaming heap of low budget cinematic dung.  Not even so bad it's good, just all the way around AWFUL.  With the production quality of FAMILY PROPERTY: BACKWOODS HILLBILLY MASSACRE, the crudity of THE BLOOD SHED, and the gore effects of SUBURBAN SASQUATCH, this is truly one of the worst films I have ever seen.  Spare yourselves, my brothers.  I took this one for the team, and my eyes are still bleeding.  Run . . .  while you still can!  it's too late for me, save yourselves!   -1/5  Buggedout Buggedout Buggedout Hatred Hatred Bluesad Bluesad

Howl: Surprisingly effective werewolf movie. A bunch of passengers on board a late night train are stranded when it hits something on the rails. One by one they are picked off. It 'stars' the annoying kid from Eragon but was still worth a watch. If I see this one on DVD I'll pick it up.

Dudes & Dragons: A host of familiar faces, some of which I could put names to, some I couldn't. A fun fantasy romp about some dysfunctional heroes out to save the day. The special effects vary in quality, although I wouldn't say they were ever terrible.

Dragon Hunters: By the numbers low budget fantasy film.

I've been severely slackin' on the movie watching of late, but it's a snowy weekend so let's git back in the trashy movie groove with...

"Blood Games" (1990)

A traveling all-girl baseball team (whose uniforms consist of Daisy Dukes and tiny cut off t-shirts) roll into a small town and proceed to beat the pants off the local-yokel beer league team. Naturally, the good ole boys don't take kindly to such humiliation from a bunch of wimmen folk, so they even the score by getting drunk and rapey on a couple of the gals. When they suffer a bus breakdown on their way out of town, the ladies have no choice but to take a stand and fight against the rednecks to get out alive.

...soooo, yeah, basically this direct-to-video oddity is a strange hybrid of "A League of Their Own" and "I Spit On Your Grave." It's kind of hilarious in a WTF, so-bad-it's-good sort of way, but this throwback to the icky "rape-revenge" exploitation sub-genre of the '70s would never fly in today's "me too" era, even though it was directed by a woman!

Fun fact: one of the film's alternate titles is "Baseball Bimbos in Hillbilly Hell," which I like  WAY better.  BounceGiggle

"Light Blast" (1985)
A post-"C.H.i.P.S." Erik Estrada stars in this delightfully cheesy Italian action flick, as a tough Frisco cop on the trail of a mad scientist who's holding the city for ransom with a face-melting laser weapon. Lotsa car chases, shoot outs and ultra-violence, topped with a heavy layer of 80s sci-fi cheez. Tons o'fun!

"Halloween" (2007)
Rob Zombie attempts to recharge the aging horror franchise's batteries, with mixed results. This flick spends WAY too much time on Michael Myers' back story so that by the time he breaks out of the asylum and starts his Halloween night killing spree, the movie's already 3/4 over. The attempt to "humanize" Myers is an interesting idea, but I think I liked him better when he was an enigma, not a white trash kid with Mommy issues.
That said, it''s a well made film, the cast is great, and the violence is fabulously brutal, so your mileage may vary. I don't hate this one, but it's never fully clicked with me, either. This is "Halloween" for the Hot Topic crowd.

"Manhattan Baby" (1982)
An archaeologist is struck blind by a mysterious force while exploring an Egyptian tomb, and when he and his family return home to New York it appears that something sinister has hitched a ride on their young daughter as well.
Lucio Fulci of "Zombie" and "New York Ripper" fame directed this bizarro, ten-years-too-late "Rosemary's Baby" wanna-be, which seems to have been made up as it went along. The story's got more holes than Swiss cheese, the dialog and dubbing is typical Italian-horror gibberish, and it didn't even have any of Fulci's trademark extreme gore to keep me interested. My boy Lucio struck out big time with this one. AVOID.

STARFISH (2018): Aubrey is depressed. Her best friend dies, and then the end of the world arrives in the form of an invasion of alien monsters; fortunately, her deceased friend left behind a mixtape that will save the world. An art-house drama with surreal horror movie elements, STARFISH can be a bit mopey and lingering at times, but has a lot to recommend it in Virginia Gardner's performance and the ambitious evocation of apocalyptic loneliness. 3/5.
