I have spent the last couple of days watching all the Jurassic Park movies. The first one is what i will call a movie classic. The story is interesting, suspenseful and the special effects are exceptionally good. Although i would call the movie a classic. It is not one of my top ten favourite movies. It is probably in my top fifty.... The Jurassic Park franchise suffers from the same thing most other franchises suffers from: A fall in the quality of the movies as the series progress. The only deviation is that Jurassic World is better than Jurassic Park III. Jurassic World brings some new interesting ideas into the franchise. For example the struggle to keep attracting visitors to the park. Also the climax is very cool. Although the newest entries into the franchise is not as good as the first one. The Jurassic Park franchise comes highly recommendable because the movies are still of a high standard and i will definitely pick up Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom when it is released. Ps. I watched Jurassic Park and Jurassic World in 3D but it did not really add anything to the viewing experience! #jurassicpark#jurassicworld#jurassic#dinosaur#extinct#stevenspielberg#stanwinston#jeffgoldblum#samneill#chrispratt#dvdcollection#dvd#bluray#bluraycollection#3d#franchise#classic#adventure#monster#trex
"My life really is turning into a horror movie. And you know how they end." Coming-of-age movies are especially resonant today, since so many people hold the entertainment from their childhoods sacred in this treacherous land of remakes and reboots... but every now and then, we will get something like today's hardcore double feature. These are both coming of age movies, but they are not washed with nostalgia, rose-tinted glasses, or good old days rhetoric. These movies are unwholesome descents into depravity, through the lens of young boys confronting adulthood.
FOUND. Marty is a horror obsessed fifth grader, and he's dealing with a lot. Despite being a good kid, he's bullied unfairly, and lacks friends... and he has just discovered that his older brother, Steve, is a serial killer who keeps an assortment of heads in a bowling ball bag. This is a really grim movie. It takes it's time, building on drama over frights and never giving in to typical slasher scares. Really, if it weren't for the last ten minutes, I would hesitate to call this a horror movie. Until then, it's more of a mystery. But when this film gets going, it's a horrifying and disturbing experience with a conclusion that will leave you shaking. I adore Found. It's an incredibly low budget film that crafts a realistic experience with very little. The performances are solid, the shocks are tangible, and the narrative is haunting and poetic.
PIG PEN: Written and directed by Jason Koch, Pig Pen is a gritty revenge story. 13 year old Zach has to grown up fast when his mother's sadistic boyfriend, Wayne, boots him out of the house. Living on the streets isn't easy, and one violent act after another sets Zach on a confrontational path back home. This one is insanely gory and harsh, with sequences that have to be seen to be believed. It pushes itself into territory you never expect it too, but never sacrifices its down-to-earth vibe to do so. It's a very masculine movie, focusing on the conflict between two very different men and the blurred lines between aggression and vengeance. Pig Pen was a complete surprise and has gone unrecognized for too long.
🎃31 Days of Halloween: Day 20: Probably my favorite horror release in the last 10 years. Just completely bonkers and totally incomparable. A masterpiece. 🕷 👻 🐺 🐍 🧛🏼♂️ 🧟♂️🤡👽💀🤖🧙🏼♀️🧜🏼♂️🦇 #31daysofhalloween
Ichigo bisa melihat hantu sedari kecil. Petualangannya pun dimulai saat dia bertemu Shinigami semasa SMA dan mendapat pinjaman kekuatan darinya. Dengan kekuatan itulah dia mulai membasmi roh-roh jahat yang berkeliaran.
Satu lagi live action dari anime populer. Belum pernah nonton animenya, cuma kenal judul aja, jadi ini review dari penonton biasa.
Satu yang langsung terpikirkan adalah spesial efek Jepang udah lumayan ternyata. Cerita, karena anime & manganya terkenal jadi udah dijamin bagus kalau mau ngikutin. Karakter2nya juga menarik dan mudah disukai. Untuk versi live action ini, keseluruhan cukup bisa diikuti oleh penonton awam. Gak tahu sebanyak apa bagian yang dipangkas.
Adegan aksinya didominasi oleh banyak efek CGI. Beberapa aksi yang non-CGI terasa agak kurang. Karena ini genrenya pedang-pedangan, jadi mau tak mau harus inget Rurouni Kenshin, dan ternyata emang masih susah move on.huehehe
Jika ada sekuelnya patut ditunggu. Dari karakter-karakter yang ada keliatan bakal seru ke depannya.
For day 20, Picking two films that inspired their own universe, The Conjuring 1 and 2. While some of the films that spawned from The Conjuring aren’t the best, you can’t go wrong with these. Especially the first one, which is one of the best modern horror films around.
This just arrived! Didn’t realize it came with two discs. I also received Mothra vs. Godzilla in the mail, however they sent me the wrong version of it. I wanted the plain Black and Yellow DVD with the black case but they sent me the older slim, silver case that makes a cracking noise when you open it. I issued a refund and they refunded me and let me keep it! How awesome is that? Anyways, I’m probably gonna have a double-bill with this and Atragon sometime. I love the white case too.
