Mortal Kombat 2021 5/10

That was a pretty ****ty film. I am not in the least surprised though. I guess the first MK film is still the best MK movie ever made. The only character worth a damn was Kung Lao. Goro was very well done too. Much better than in the first film.

Primal Rage 2018 8/10

A pretty good film actually. Much better than I had anticipated. It reminded me a lot of Predator but with bigfoot instead of the Predator. The kills were gruesome, and having a giant cruel ape stalking and hunting their prey with bows and weapons is kind of a scary thing.

Conan O'Brien Can't Stop 8/10

Been putting off watching this for a long time because some people said he comes across as a dick in it wasn't that bad. Overall it was interesting to have a backstage look at stuff and the banter with Andy and Sona made me laugh several times. Probably wouldn't be the most exciting watch if not a Conan fan but I'd definitely recommend it to people who are.

Took a mini-tour through "The Cinema of Ben Wheatley", a not-very-good director. I had previously viewed Kill List and really disliked it even though many people love it.

Down Terrace (Blu-ray from Netflix mail) - Just like Kill List, it involves a bunch of unintelligible, marble-mouthed Brits with poor sound recording, involved in crime. Mostly a crappy movie, but it picks up when they start killing each other.

Free Fire (Blu-ray from Netflix mail) - I guess it's supposed to be some Scorsese/Tarantino knock-off, and it succeeds in that it's as bad as some of their worse movies.

In the Earth (In the theater) - Very disappointing movie. It was inspired by the pandemic but that is only a portion of the movie. The rest is some faux-meaningful, faux-psychedelic stuff that reminded me of the last season of "Lost" in a bad way. It has a few good scenes with a character named Zack, but I felt like I kept waiting for the movie to start when it never did.

Two Edgar Wright movies; never viewed any of his stuff.

Shaun of the Dead (DVD) - This really didn't do anything for me. I wasn't in the mood for it when I watched it, but even if I had been, it's nothing special and really not even funny or clever.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (in the theater, re-released) - I read the six-volume graphic novel series before going, and the movie holds very close to the books, even porting in stuff that doesn't work much. It makes a few improvements to the finale, though. It's kind of a fun movie; I wasn't expecting to like it much. If I had watched it at home instead of in a booming Dolby Cinema, I wouldn't have been into it.

Two totally mismatched movies yesterday courtesy of Netflix DVD mail service.

Petrified - A bargain basement Charles Band creature feature about an alien that came to earth and is wrapped up like a mummy who is revivified after thousands of years. He makes his way to a clinic in what looks to be a suburban home that treats sex addicts and is eventually destroyed by the hero dumping a grocery store bag of table salt on him. It's what you'd expect.

Winter Light - An Ingmar Bergman movie, so what you'd expect with this, too. A priest in a small village questions whether God even exists.

I watched this old Jim Jarmusch movie. It gave me the creeps a bit but was also quite funny. My best friend about a thousand years ago most likely dragged me along to it, I can't believe all the movies we used to see.

Hardcore Henry (DVD) - First-person GoPro kill-'em-up. Semi-fun popcorn.

Nobody (in the theater) - Same director as above. I'd read some favorable opinions on this, but it's not that good. The plot twist (which isn't much of a twist) is spoiled in the trailer which I encountered several times in the theater and couldn't turn off of course. It has plot canyons, not just plot holes. Multiple machine guns going off in a suburban house? No problem, neighbors, don't call the cops.

Interview with the Vampire. My third or fourth time watching it. It was on TV. It's always good when there is a good movie on TV and you have time to watch it. And this movie gets better with time. Classic. (y)+. Gonna listen to Sisters of Mercy now.

Contagion

It' a 2011 movie about a pandemic. I guess a lot of people watched this back in 2020 when Covid first hit. This was my first time watching it. Having lived through the real thing now I can say that the movie is pretty unrealistic and Hollywood, though there were a few things that remind me of Covid like face masks, social distancing, stuff getting cancelled, shortages at grocery stores, vaccine development and rollout, and of course the politicization of the pandemic. The virus in the movie even originated with bats like Covid. Some of the unrealistic stuff was the president going into hiding, the one lady single-handedly coming up with the vaccine, the way they rolled out the vaccine (by randomly selected birthdays so you have a 1/366 chance in the lottery system each time a new tranche is announced), and the death toll (2.5 million in like a year). It's not a very good movie but was interesting to watch given the events of the last year.

Those Who Wish Me Dead

5.5/10 - Good enough for a digital release quality movie.

The Loved Ones (DVD from Netflix mail) - An Australian movie about a high school kid who is kidnapped by an insane girl after spurning her on taking her to a dance. After that it's really nothing but torture porn, no higher meaning.

Army of the Dead (in the theater) - Zack Snyder should still be ashamed of himself for disrespecting one of the greatest movies of all time by remaking it - Dawn of the Dead. He decided to make another standard, boring zombie action movie for what reason I can't discern. The movie does nothing that hasn't been done before, in the zombie stuff and the heist stuff. It has plot idiocies galore and the requisite "sjw" ethic in casting. It's way too long - almost 2.5 hours for a zombie movie.

Saw and Saw II (Blu-ray and DVD) - Despite being a horror fan, I've never viewed any of the movies in this franchise. When a new one would hit theaters I kept meaning to catch up and go to it, but I never did. I'm wanting to watch the series and then go to the new one currently out. These first two, I have to say, aren't promising. They're just really average and feature some weird, distracting editing choices.

Army of the dead - 6/10

As a member above said, it's a standard zombie flick, the redeeming features for me was seeing the dystopian decaying Vegas gave me Fallout-new Vegas vibes, the soundtrack was pretty good with nice covers of popular songs oh & it had a nuke explosion at the end blowing it all to hell 😈

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train
8/10 - Visually gorgeous and great sound track even if you're not interested in the story. I didn't know anything about the series so it was really confusing in the beginning, but it managed to flesh out the characters and have emotional impact by the end. Best fight scenes I've seen since I was a kid. Only downsides were cringey English dubbing and not knowing the world and backstory.

Pluto has been playing Beyond Re-Animator on their horror channel, so I watched that in a virtual world laying on a couch, as I was sitting on a couch in the real world (or perhaps simulated, who knows)myself. Fun times 🙃😊

It is cheesy horror, but I like cheesy horror.

Color out of Space

Well, that was disturbing. 😂 It exceeded my expectations a bit. Another surprisingly good Nicholas Cage film. Although, I liked Mandy slightly better. I'd rate this one an 8.5 out of 10.
