In all fairness, Di$ney's like a kraken that catches everything it can with its tentacles, but leaves its prey some room to breath. Acquisitions include Miramax and Touchstone Pictures, makers of The Crow, Trainspotting, From Dusk Till Dawn, Hellraiser: Bloodline, Kill Bill, The Color of Money, Dead Poets Society, Enemy of the State, Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? and The Prestige.

So even if you get gobbled up, sometimes the Big D leaves you enough creative leeway to create good stuff.

I don't have much faith for this particular project, however...


Actually they relinquished control of Miramax and Dimension some years ago. They have continued to produce good movies now that they are free. I suppose that Disney did take a hands off approach. With these subsidiaries and Hollywood Pictures, Disney has been able to produce R-rated films and still maintain it's family friendly image.


Since it is Halloween, I am going to try and cram more horror films into a single night than I usually do. I am going to start with the Canadian horror film "Superstition".

Happy Halloween

Nah, I'm kidding. Every movie means something to someone. If you enjoy those movies, more power to ya.

Personally, I'm gonna go watch Red Letter Media's dissection of them for a third time. = P

Yeah, if I ever became an internet reviewer, I'd definitely take a lot of inspiration from Mr. Plinkett.

Just watched "13 Assassins"! It was awesome! One of the best samurai movies I have ever seen!

Another good movie reviewer is Cecil at Good Bad Flicks. He does newer, more well known films, but he does a good number of obscure cult films. He has his own site and a youtube page. He does them with a lot of wit, humor and fun facts!

Here are two reviews of some films that I like and made for good reviews!

I finally got around to watching M.
And I also saw another film starring Peter Lorre, Stranger on the Third Floor. Peter Lorre is great at playing the murderer.

Also watched Bullitt, which was said to have one of the greatest car chases of all time, and I would agree.

Also watch "Vanishing Point". It is a good car chase film.

Just watched Jean-Luc Godard's Weekend in class this week. It's an awesome movie that plays around with (and ignores) alot of typical film conventions and critiques capitalist culture. A lot of people didn't like it but I thought it was awesome in it's own weird unconventional kind of way.

I lucked out it seems! I found a cheap copy of "Ginger Snaps" at a used video store. It is practically brand new! I checked and this edition, widescreen and full of extras, goes or a very pretty penny on amazon.

Anyway, if you have not seen "Ginger Snaps" I highly recommend it! It is a great werewolf movie from Canada. It is a coming of age story about two sisters, one of which gets attacked by a werewolf and becomes one.

I also found "Ginger Snaps 2" at another store a week later! Also dirt cheap. There is a third film, "Ginger Snaps Back", that I am on the look out for now.

So anyways, I just had an idea. There was this animated movie my brother and I rented a lot to watch, and I want to find it again, but I can't remember the name. Think one of y'all could me out?

Let's see... it was an animated movie about some frogs, there was an evil lobster or prawn character, there was a big mobster-like toad or something as the baddie... there was something about an egg and a golf ball... might have vaguely anti-capitalist overtones now that I thing back on it....

Sounds familiar. I can't think of what it was, but here is something that might put you onto it,

i found this on rotten tomatoes. The National Preservation Foundation screen the recently unearthed and now restored "The White Shadow" (1924). its the earliest surviving feature credited to Alfred Hitchcock. Alfred Hitchcock is credited as assistant director, art director, editor, and writer. but it's only three reels of the silent six reel feature(43 minutes worth) been uncovered and also It has been restored and surrounded with a newly recorded musical score.

Here's the link to watch the movie, enjoy!

I loved Lee J. Cobb's performance in that movie. Henry Fonda did a great job as well, but he seems to play the same person in all his movies (I don't mind though, still think he's wonderful actor).
Sidney Lumet also directed on called Murder on the Orient Express, which was said to be similar to 12 Angry Men.
He also did Dog Day Afternoon and Network, which were great movies.

Just got finished watching House of Dracula. Aside from a slow start, a rushed ending, and a few stupid coincidences, this movie is absolutely fantastic! Might be tied with Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man for my favorite of the Universal monster movies.

You might like "House of Frankenstein". It is another great "monster mash up". It has all the monsters and a stellar cast.

I went to a flea market on Thanksgiving day. I spent $8 and got 6 movies on DVD! I came away with:

Beyond Re-Animator
DOA: Dead or Alive
The Baby
Dead End Drive-in
Gun Crazy
Wrong Turn

You can't beat that!

I finally got to see Abel Ferrara's "Bad Lieutenant". It is a very powerful film. If you have not seen it, it is about a corrupt New York City police officer and his slow self destruction. It is also about redemption and atonement.

And the day after Thanksgiving, I had no where to go and all the yard work was done, so I did nothing but watch Godzilla movies and My Little Pony episodes. It was a good way to while away a day off.

On top of all that, someone posted the movie "Freaked"! Its on youtube with Portuguese subtitles. Check it out! It is one of my favorite comedies.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=somRY_YoWY4

Its about a former child star relating the story of how he was paid to be the spokeman for an evil corporation, and his friends were captured by a crazy sideshow owner and turned into freakish mutants.

I actually don't like "House of Frankenstein. Dracula was completely unrelated to the proceedings, and never even met Talbot or the Monster. What a letdown.

Universal was strange that way. I heard that early drafts of "Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man" didn't actually have a monster battle in them.

I guess that just leaves us with "Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein". And there are three movies made within about a year of each other called Frankenstein vs Dracula". Only one actually have a fight scene between the two monsters, and all three are bad.

But there was a made for TV movie from 1997 that might be worth your while called "House of Frankenstein. It has the monsters on the loose in modern day Los Angeles.

For that matter, Penwrite, have you ever seen "Monster Squad"? I think that you would like it!

No, I meant that since "House of Frankenstein" was a disappointment for you as a monster mash-up, that meant the only other movie like that was "Abbot and Costello Meets Frankenstein" was the only other monster mash-up.

Put down the box cutter, Penwrite.

Oh.

Anywho, I'm a massive fan of Monster Squad. The practical effects are brilliant, especially the new version of the Gillman.

I actually had an idea the other day for Universal to reboot their classic movie monsters in the same vein as the Marvel superhero films. Make a Dracula movie, a Frankenstein movie, a Wolfman movie, Gillman, Mummy, and then bring them all together in a new Monster Squad film. Like The Avengers, only with classic monsters.

So I'm writing a paper on Halloween and it's really making me appreciate how great a film it is. I liked it the first time I saw it but watching it multiple times with a critical eye is making me love it. Sometimes being a film student can suck but when I get to sit down and write a paper on the conventions of the slasher genre it's pretty sweet.

My intro to film professor is a big horror movie buff. I knew I was going to like his class when someone mixed up dawn and day of the dead and he took the time to stop class and correct them. :lol:

What cool teacher! I took a film class once and the teacher wanted us to watch nothing but 50s musicals. They have their merits, but "Singing in the Rain" is not my first choice.

I would love any teacher that cares that much about George A. Romero and his films.

There are plenty of scholarly books on the subject of slasher films, you might also want to see the documentary and the book "Going to Pieces: Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film". And the documentary "Nightmares in Red, White and Blue: The Evolution of the American Horror Film".

Also, the according to Joe Bob Briggs, the term "slasher film" was first applied to "Friday the 13th". Carpenter was influenced by the films of Dario Argento. Particularly "Deep Red" and "Suspiria".

I had to watch singin' in the rain for intro to film and I have to say that while I enjoyed it (much to my suprise) a semester of musicals sounds about as appealing at a root canal; and if I ever had time to sit down and watch a flick anymore I'd give those a look.

Casino Royale
Not the James Bond movie from 2006, the James Bond parody movie from 1967.
It stars David Niven, Peter Sellers, Orson Welles, William Holden, Woody Allen, and Peter O'Toole.

And speaking of Peter O'Toole, Lawrence of Arabia is a fantastic movie. It's long (4 hours) but worth it IMO.

Just watched Tobe Hooper's film "Lifeforce". I have seen it many times before because it is just that good!

Its one of those rare examples of a film adaptation that is better than the novel it was based on. Having read Colin Wilson's novel, I can attest to this. Wilson's novel is boring and has an anti-climactic ending. This film is riveting! From the writer of "Alien" and "Return of the Living Dead", and the director of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre".

I fianlly watched Trention's death proof last weekend. I'm not a car guy and usually I don't like movies that center around car chases or some other similar plot device but man that was a heck of a flick.

I have always agreed with the theory that watching horror films is a healthy, cathartic release. I also believe that it helps you control your fear. I have an anxiety disorder and I think horror films have helped me cope with it. I still have the occasional panic attack, but not as much as I used to.

I appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into these films. Lighting, color, music. mood and of course the special effects. If they can do something, without CGI, that makes you say "how did they do that?" then they have done their job.

Horror films are enjoyable to people like me because I think that they speak to the misfit in all of us. They appeal to a special kind of person. Since they are usually shunned by the mainstream, they are even more appealing to outsiders. Often the creature or what have you in the film misunderstood or victim of circumstances beyond it's control. Society reacts to it with fear and violence because it is unique. And because it is unique, the world will not tolerate its existence. Monsters are also free from the restraints that govern the lives of mere humans.

Horror films usually deal with fear and violence. Those are very universal themes in culture and pop culture. Romance and Comedy tend to be very culturally specific genres. But horror crosses cultural boundaries very easily. Every society and culture has its monsters.

I just watched it, thanks to your post. I knew that Del Toro was working on it but that was it. Now that I see it, this looks all kinds of awesome!

Also, I heard that Del Toro is back on track to make "Hellboy 3".

Very excited.

Guillermo del Toro has always sited anime as one of his influences. Even though everyone compares any such style to "The Matrix".

I hope that maybe with this renewed interest in mecha and such things, maybe there is a chance that there might be another attempt at making "The Guyver" as a film.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-i2_hkTy9po

"The Guyver" and "The Guyver 2: Dark Hero" were some of my favorite movies as a kid. But, now I see that they were held back by limited budget. They are still very fun movies. Check them out.

EDIT: It happened again.

My roommate and his friends begged me to watch "Cannibal Holocaust". At about the half-way point, they rebelled and forced me to turn it off. They just could not take it but they were the ones who wanted to see it.

Guillermo del Toro has always sited anime as one of his influences. Even though everyone compares any such style to "The Matrix".

I hope that maybe with this renewed interest in mecha and such things, maybe there is a chance that there might be another attempt at making "The Guyver" as a film.

The first Guyver movie is a little too flip-floppy in tone for my tastes, but I think the second one has some absolutely awesome practical effects and fight scenes.

Also, regarding your friends: BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

No argument there. One of the few times the sequel topped the original. I never read the manga or watched the anime, but I loved the character and the concept after seeing these movies. I just wish I could get a cheap legitimate copy of "Guyver 2" on DVD.

"Cannibal Holocaust" is a rough experience. But, I did feel a lot tougher than they are!

Rough expieience is putting it lightly. That is one of a dozen or so movies that genuinely disturb me. I love it.
