The new cloverfield movie is easy to rip apart but for all its flaws, I still found it enjoyable. I was never bored. I wanted more time on earth though. The connection to the universe felt tacked on too. The strongest part of the film is the casting/acting.


Going to try to watch Veronica and keep watching this week.

Ya I found it enjoyable and had a great cast, that ending felt "added" but I have seen worse over the year

Haha yeah dude you have to wade through some pretty brutal fudge as a horror fan.


Saw Veronica. Been a fan a fan of Plaza since REC. He hits every single genre trope here but it all stills work. If you've seen any possession flick. Veronica doesn't bring anything new to the table but you actually care what happens to these characters. I thought the child actors were all fantastic. 3.5/5

"The Ritual" was a solid watch, despite some cliches. Just wish there had been a bit more of the film's monster.
Really enjoyed "Tragedy Girls." Definitely a treat for fans of horror mixed with satire.

Also re-watched "American Mary," "Ravenous," "American Psycho," and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" for women in horror month. Gonna try to watch 28 films written or directed by women this month. "Jennifer's Body," "Ginger Snaps," and "Near Dark" later this week.

Shocked you like tragedy girls. I drymounting hated it. Was really looking forward to it because I enjoyed patchwork but TG was brutal. Listening to them talk was like nails on a drymounting chalkboard

I can totally understand that. My lady HATED Tragedy Girls. I enjoyed the tone more than some aspects of the script. I thought having character-specific score and soundtrack was a great touch, I thought some of the joked were excellent, and a few of the references were a nice touch. And, honestly, it reminded me of some of my students in terms of how the main characters think of themselves as a brand, which was interesting to see in a movie like this.

I thought that there were some interesting things going on and it was very topical but it never really came together for me.


I really liked the ritual. I thought most everything worked. I actually preferred that we didn't really get too much beast prior to the finale. There's a fine line there with showing too much or not enough and i'd much rather a director err on the side of caution and show some restraint than seeing the monster too much.


Going to watch still/born tonight. Looking forward to it.

I loved Rabbit, maybe more so than others, but while some of the aspects are easy to see coming, I loved the reveals of other parts of it. Doesn't seem to be any US distribution for it yet unless I just can't find it.

MFA is now streaming on Amazon Prime. It's pat and predictable in some ways, but a good watch.

Most beautiful island is finally streaming. It’s on prime right now. It’s not going to be for everyone but it’s in my top 3 horror films from 2017.

Eventually. It had its festival run over in the US, then it'll be released here in Aus soon, and then back to the US for streaming. I imagine probably about May/June time.
