Just watched Botched, starring Stephen Dorf, I was laughing my ass off!!! starts slow and you would think it's just another dumb Dorf movie, then your stomach hurts about half way through from the laughter... Maybe this should be in under rated?? Good thread.
Just watched "Escape from NY" and "Escape from LA". The later I've seen a looooong time ago, so it was more of a refresher in context with me watching "Escape from NY" which I was watching for the first time ever
This was preceded by me watching "The Prince of Darkness", "In the Mouth of Madness" and bits and pieces from "The Thing" (pun somewhat intended) the day before.
Yep, it has been a fabulous John Carpenter appreciation weekend.
Not as good as the first two movies (the second one was my favourite), but not as bad as a lot of people made it out to be. It had its good points and the villains and special effects were pretty well done.
I never get motion sick, so I had no problem with it, but my dad had to leave after about 3 minutes. The shaky camera can get a little irritating, but I guess it worked in the way they planned it too. It also worked really well in making the special effects look convincing. I thought the ending was a bit of a disappointment though.
Just watched "The Resurected", which is based on a HP Lovecraft book. One part of the film was so scary I had to turn on the lights in the room, the build-up until that part had me shivering. I am the kind of person who have watched many scary movies and seldom get scared, so I recommend this if you wanna get scared.

Ong Bak 2 - It has nothing to do with the first one, so I dont understand the title. The story is fragmented and sparce with some scenes that seem tacked on. But story isnt really the reason most people watch martial arts movies. The fights are incredible. Tons of styles and weapons are used. Some very invetive ways to make it not the same old stuff.
X-Men Origins...Wish that the writing was better!! Wish that the story was enough to pull me in from the beginning to the end. Wish that they would let a comic book writer actually write one of these movies. Joss Whedon wrote a great run of X-Men and also Firefly(Serenity). If wishes were horses.....I'd be knee deep in horse crap.
