Night of the Comet. 7/10. Awesome flick. Pretty much everything you'd expect out of an 80's horror flick.

American Hustle 7.5/10

I also thought Lawrence was the weakest link in that all star cast. I fall in love with Amy Adams every movie. I'm already a big fan of Bale, Cooper I'm not a fan of but I've liked him in 2 movies already, this and his other movie with JenLaw so I might have to start liking him Renner was very good as well, always plays a hero type guy. Overall I enjoyed it, I'm sure most people will.

If you haven't seen it, The Town has him in a non-hero role.

What are some good horror movies? I've been giving them a chance but it seems like their all leading down the same road. The same shit over and over.

If you feel that way about horror movies and want something different that doesn't 'lead down the same road' as you put it, watch Cabin In The Woods.

Make sure you watch the whole thing, def a unique movie for the horror genre with awesome ideas

I watched The Shining to study the horror film techniques. It's my first horror movie. Seems like it's just claustrophobia and "eliminating the viewer's senses", which means to make it hard to see stuff or hear stuff or understand stuff.

Doing all that just right is a master craft, I think, though.

The movie is a bit long (2 hours, 30 minutes), and there's a lot of exposition, so I expect most people will be bored to death for the first hour.

Oblivion 8/10. Good movie that lost me at the end. Had to google the spoilers, watched the flick again and appreciated it even more. Altho left with more questions. 8 may be high, thinkin 7.5. But considering my next two movies? Well I'm entitled to throw a curve.

You're Next 3/10. The most ridiculous movie I've ever seen in awhile.

The Purge 5/10. Concept seemed dope but it failed miserably.

Now you see me 6.5/10- I enjoyed the movie but the plot seemed way over the hill at times and I had understanding how they pulled off some off those heists. But still entertaining nonetheless

as for horror movies I really liked 1408.

I love screener season:

American Hustle - 8/10

I'm not a big David O Russel fan but this was great fun. His best movie since Three Kings. Clearly style over substance but it worked for me. A great and funny script (loved the ice fishing story stuff) and two top performances from the leads (Bale and Adams).



12 Years a Slave - 9/10

Such a raw and basic way to tell this brutal story. Lots of the material is meant to evoke an emotional reaction but it never manipulated you or devolved into melodrama. Something like the musical score was muted enough to let the story and characters do it all. It did a great job of focusing on one character and what he had to go through without preaching to audience. Well, except maybe a little at the end with Brad Pitt's character. This was a very personal story as opposed to a history lesson like Amistad was (which I liked a lot as well).
