Ghost World- an indie film based on a small indie comic I've never read. Plus, it's about teen girls, and as a guy, well, you can't 'relate' to the characters. Glad I watched.

I also enjoyed that one, liked Steve Buscemi as a nerd :P

The Return Of Dracula (1958)

When seeing this one as a kid, I thought it was average vampire movie. But seeing it several times thru the years as an older man, I see this film for what it really is-a well-thought out film about a truly sinister being who infiltrates a family and slowly begins using his influence to elevate himself beyond suspicion so he can carry out his plans.

Frances Lederer really worked in this role and he's a joy to watch as he goes to work in this old classic.  It's a very serious movie in a time when monsters were just for badness' sake.
See this movie!

Ted (2012). I've been pretty much apathetic about Seth McFarlane's output for quite a while now, but this was one of the cutest movies I've seen in a long time. Really (surprisingly) enjoyed this one.  Thumbup

Nightmare Castle-1965

What some may see as just another "beyond the grave" type of movie is actually quite a masterpiece on several levels, mostly in it's undeniably Gothic atmosphere and it's truly slow buildup of events to it's shocking end scene that, when combined with the sinister chamber music of Ennio Morricone, really sets this one apart from your traditional Euro-Gothic movies of the time.

And, the natural wonders of Barbara Steele and the lovely Helga Line sure as hell don't hurt this movie.   Cheers  And a personal salute to Paul Muller as a very calm and cool mad scientist who had an answer for everything, who eventually had to answer to the supernatural.  Again, as I say with most movies, see this one of you can!

Hi there!

Bride of the Gorilla comes to mind, as well as The Navy vs. The Night Monsters. saw them both with my parents at The Worst Film Fest when there was a Deutsches Haus before it was destroyed for an ambitious, but rubbish attempt to put in a super hospital.

yeah no.

Warm Bodies. All I knew about it was that the first time I heard of it people called it, "Twilight with zombies". The very idea made me angry in that irrationally stupid way where you can't articulate exactly what's wrong with a thing, only that it just is. Accordingly, I refused to learn anything more about it and avoided any discussion relating to the movie.

Then I saw a trailer for it at the theater. Why is the narration funny? Why are these zombies making me smirk? Why are there putrid skeletons chasing people? Why didn't anyone mention putrid skeletons? This trailer single-handedly got me to agree to go see the movie with the rest of my family. I was surprised. Not only was it funny, not only was it entertaining, but it didn't remind me at all of what I knew about Twilight. In fact, the girl wants no part of the situation whatsoever. "You're a zombie- hell no!" This was a good example of a movie that knew what it was, knew what it wanted to do with that knowledge, and pulled it off well. This was a plain case of the internet finding a thing, taking the worst example of that thing, pinning that example onto the face of the thing, and b***hing about it in comment sections and forums. The only thing you should trust about the internet is that it's generally untrustworthy. TongueOut

Zombieland with a romantic main plot and no Twinkies, pretty much.
