Drive 9.5/10

I was on a level of constant suspense, even when they were simply eating dinner.

Its an interesting little film and I was surprised to find out it was the directors first feature effort. It had some pretty cool shots, it didn't focus too much on looking at the monsters and didn't go over the top with the gore. The less is more approach was a nice change of pace from much of the splatter fests I have viewed as of late.

The cast is solid though not spectacular, there is some dark humor and a few cool action scene moments. Nothing will really surprise you as the characters are of the stock variety but it seems as thought the cast and filmmakers were having fun making it. Its not going to scare you but its more of a fun horror film in the vein of Shaun of the Dead, Slither or Tales From the Crypt: Demon Night.

A-/B+





attack the block is my joint second favorite film of the year, superb stuff, surprisingly well made and very comparable to shaun of the dead in quality.

Jesus ****, I just downloaded Eden Lake cause I saw the title up here a few times and I can say that's one of the most ****ed up films I've ever seen. In horror films at least you know it's all bullshit. This was ****ing gruesome shit.

It was alright, there were a lot of things left unanswered, such as any explanation as to why the female alien came to the US in the first place. I would give it a B or B+. There some things I had a difficult time understanding.

Saw this a while back, really enjoyed it. I think it's only out in limited release, but if it's still playing anywhere around you, I would definitely recommend it.

8/10

Yeah, that caught your attention didn't it?

Bedazzled: 6/10- Saw this today and it brought back some memories. I always felt this movie was a bit underrated. Brendan Fraiser is actually quite funny in this one. The jokes are tired and worn out, but Fraiser makes it work (how many times have I said that in my life? I can count on one hand!).

Also I have always said that Ray Wise in Reaper is the best devil I've ever seen. But Elizabeth Hurley might be many a favorite.

Good for multiple chuckles and a couple laugh out louds. A comedy could do much worse than that.

Why would that even matter?
