Fantastic beasts and where to find them.
A Harry Potter spin off prequel.
I had to go to this movie, because the 'flatmate' is a fan of the original books and movies.
If you like the Potter series of movies this is for you.
Personally i don't like any of the books or the movies, even the one iv seen and this was no different.
I fucken hated it.
Loads of CGI, not a huge amount of plot and a complete waste of a sunday night.
Unrateable pile of shit.
Fuck you J.K. Rowling!!!

Siege of the dead. (Rammbock) Germany. 2010. 8/10
A zombie movie where the zombies are left alive, so to speak. It's plot is more a drama with some comedic and survival elements.
Set in an apartment block. Only 1 hour long.

Suspiria. Italy 1977. Dario Argento. 6/10
This film is always featured on horror best of lists. The film uses ALOT of red lighting including the walls of the dance academy.
Not for everyone. There a remake with Tilda Swanson set for release this year.

The Handmaiden. 9/10
2016 South Korean erotic psychological thriller film directed by Park Chan-wook. (Oldboy.)
Really nicely filmed with a great script and lezbo scenes.

The Wailing. South Korea, 2016. 7/10
A 2.5 hour ghost story. Great movie but very layered with lots of twists.
Ridley Scott is looking at a possible remake, it won't come close to the original.

Sadako vs. Kayako 7/10 Japan.
Had some nice scares just like the original Grudge and Ring, kinda funny with an interesting storyline.

Train to Busan. 2016 (Korean) 9/10
A zombie outback on a train. Sounds simple but the elements of the plot and twists were really great!!!.
A U.S. remake next year. Given how the Oldboy version turned out and that had Sam Jackson & Josh Brolin in it, directed by Spike Lee and was laughable garbage. It's best to see the originals of both.

ALIEN 8/10
Still a great movie even 28 years on.

Dr Strange. 3/10
More CGI than plot.

Dunkirk. 7/10
 Good, but not great. The different time lines, didn't see or understand it.
 It set a nice level of tension and didn't show gore.

Post by: Jon Evil on July 28, 2017, 12:43:54 PM
Aguirre, the Wrath of God. 1972, director Werner Herzog. 8/10
 Minimalist story and dialogue about a group of Spanish soldiers in search of the mythical city of gold El Dorado.
Strange and errie, considered a classic film. Not for everyone.

All the presidents men.  1976.  7/10
 A political thriller based on 'Watergate.' No subsplots, just the two reporters, the newspaper and the people they are trying to get information from.

2LDK.  Japan 2003. 8/10
 From Wikipedia. Two ambitious actresses, who share an apartment, learn they have been short-listed for the same part and that they have to wait for one more night to see who wins the part. As they bicker throughout the night, their competitiveness and hidden grudges turn their apartment into a battlefield.
 Japanese real estate acronym for an 2-bedroom apartment with a Living-room, Dining-room, and Kitchen.
 I'd never heard of it and untill hearing about it on a horror podcast. Couldn't get a copy off torrent so i ripped a version of you tube.
 Running time of just over 60 mins.
A slow relentless build up. Classic cinema.
 
 Eat local.
 Low budget Brit vampire comedy. 5/10.
 It was funny although i found myself looking at the clock, the story revolves around a group of vampires hold up with a human in a farmhouse while some tactical army blokes are outside trying to kill them all. No real backstory as to why but ignore that and enjoy the ride.
 
 The girl with all the gifts. 8/10
 A slightly different take on the zombie genre, kinda funny and tense with some stupid moments, but worth a look. Saw a review saying it was better than Train to Busan. No. It isn't that good, just a close second.

RAW   9/10
 French-Belgian film written and directed by Julia Ducournau.
 A young lady goes to uni to become a vet and also a cannibal.
 Excellent movie, didn't think much of the trailer but there has been some hype in the mainstream,  it reminded me of the Inside, Frontiers wave of French horror a few years ago.
ALIEN covenant.
7/10
The fifth alien movie, lots of things happening, very heavy on the idea of who created who. Wouldn't watch it again.

CHiPS. 4/10. Entertaining and completly forgettable, i'm surprised i made it all was thru and i wasn't smoking weed or drinking.

A Serbian Film. 2010.
 A well-crafted film thats subject matter obliterated any praise that could be applied to it. If controversy is what a horror film aims to create as part of the marketing plan, this one had it in not spades, but truckloads.
 There is a doco planned and possibly a directors cut. Article here. (http://www.blumhouse.com/2017/06/21/documentary-on-a-serbian-film-in-the-works-and-possibly-an-extended-cut/)
 Iv watched it twice and still find a good movie, that would put me squarely in the minority, shit happens.
 10/10

The hitmans bodyguard. 2017
 Predictable but funny, action-comedy Netfix 'original'.
 With a two hour running time it dragged like a slow shit after the first hour. It really could have done with 30 mins trimmed out of it. Near the end i found myself fast-forwarding thur any talking.
 The stunts were pretty good and the action, although brainless, was entertaining. Salma Hayek was completely wasted in it and to a degree Gary Oldman.
 I got a torrent copy that was leaked.
 Glad to have not paid for it.
 4/10
Title: Re: The Last Movie You Watched

The Bride. 2017.
 A Russian ghost story.
 Lionsgate have got the remake rights. Bloody Disgusting (http://bloody-disgusting.com/movie/3463132/lionsgate-remaking-bride-conjuring-writers/) (includes trailer)
 Pretty good overall, 8/10. When i saw it was being remade i made a point to watch the original, its 95mins, but the blokes associated those fucking 'conjuring' movies will grind it out to at least two hours and it will lose alot in translation.
 Got a copy off Pirate bay and subtites elsewhere.

A dark song.  8/10
 A 2016 Irish independent horror film about a woman who hires an occultist to get vengeance for her dead son.
They are locked in a house together and do a series of rituals. It slowly builds the tension thru a lack of action.
 Trailer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvQ2ClKbRcU)

3 billboards...
Interesting but too somber and depressing to make what ever humor in it effective. About 3/4 thru i hit the fastforward button. 6/10.

The shape of water.
I wanted to see this but when my flatmate insisted we go to the cinema saturday night on the back of a very lack of sleep friday, i was soo tired and angry i couldn't stay awake. This badly tainted my opinion of it and i no desire to ever see it again. Seemed interesting the bits i saw.

Mother.
Really no idea about this, the characters are GOD, Adam, Eve, Mother nature and humanity.
Strange. 7/10

The Death of Stalin.
If you have seen VEEP and the other political series and movie this bloke has done, it's worth the watch.
I really enjoyed it. Heavy on the dialouge and the politics but highly entertaining.
10 out fucking 10.

I, Tonya.

Tried to watch it but gave up, a pathetic doco-drama based on a eye rolling incident. Margo Robbie swears.
2/10
Title: Re: The Last Movie You Watched
Post by: Jon Evil on April 13, 2018, 01:01:06 PM
Thirst. 2009
Park Chan Wook (director of Oldboy.)
Interesting take on vampires, typical of Park, kinda slow but interesting, i only got an hour thru it before i started to nod off, but i will go back to see how it finished.
Basic plot, a respected priest, volunteers for an experimental procedure that may lead to a cure for a deadly virus. He gets infected and dies, but a blood transfusion of unknown origin brings him back to life as a vampire
6/10

You were never really here.

Directed by Lynn Ramsey, stars Joaquin Phoenix.
Strange, quiet and brooding. A movie that doesn't have gimmicks, CGI or a obvious plot. At the end of this movie i was confused but satisfied that i'd watched a film that was not straight forward but was filmed in a very artisic way.
8/10

Title: Re: The Last Movie You Watched
Post by: Jon Evil on April 14, 2018, 01:57:28 PM
Flukt. (Escape) 2012. Norway.
 Simple plot of young lady kidnapped by robbers, escapes. Chase on foot begins.
 The bloke who directed did Tomb Raider, i can see why they imported him to make that movie.
 This one has no CGI and keep me interested.
 8/10

Rigor Mortis 2013
 A Hong Kong produced horror film, has all the standard 'aisan horror' fare you would expect but without any real creepy scares.
 It not straight forward like a westie horror and although there is alot of CGI, it helps the story evolves in conjunction with the different characters.
 9/10
Title: Re: The Last Movie You Watched
Post by: Jon Evil on April 29, 2018, 02:11:38 PM
El Infierno. (Hell) 2010
A Mexican film about the drug trade and the layers of corruption and wars the rival cartels have.
Two and half hours long, but for the complexities to be actually played it, worth it. Starts off kinda funny with lighter moments but the violence pops up more and more.
9/10.

Epitaph 2007.
 South Korea.
 A ghost story set in a hospital. Told via flashback with flashbacks inside that. It's an intense watch simply because you have to really pay attention to what is going on. It doesn't have jump scares or much gore, just alot of things that appear to be not related, that relate to each other and eventually come together. But you have to pay attention.
 7/10

Free Fire. 7/10

 Would i watch it again, probably not, but it is good for a first watch.

Angst. Austria. 1983. 8/10
 Read about this on Bloody Disgusting (http://bloody-disgusting.com/editorials/3503348/butcher-block-brutal-psycho-killer-home-invasion-angst-extreme/), they pick an extreme horror each week for a section called 'Butchers block'.
 The film was based on bloke called Werner Kniesek, i read a bit about him after i'd watched the film, on the whole, pretty acurate.
 A bloke is released from prison, does a home invasion that day and gets caught. The film has a monologue going over the whole thing with some quite long and interesting camera angles. It was banned at the time and never really got any traction after that.
 By todays horror the violence is meek, but paired up with the monologue, it's intense.
 Got a copy off torrent.

Incident in ghostland. 2018. 4.5/10
 When i read that Pascal Laugier (Martyrs) had made this film i was pretty excited, i watched the trailer, expectations were dulled a bit, read a couple of reviews, one praised it up the other trashed it.
 I was impressed with the story, it had the twists i would expect from a movie written by him, but...i just couldn't really like it. It was bleak and twisted, (awesome) but it just seemed, unlike his debut, the violence strayed into the terrority that is more in keeping with most American films. Torture. Nothing wrong with that, but it doesn't make the film worthy of a second watch.
 The film is a French/Canadian production.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66JuZ1cb03E

Don't breath. 2016. 6/10 Three burglers break into a blind mans house.
 Spoiler alert.
 When i read the reviews of this movie and saw the trailer, one thing was mentioned, 'there's a twist.' Instantly i thought, the blind guy will have a woman hostage. Sure enough. I was right. 45 mins in, and i reached for the remote. The tension was great at the start, the errie silence was awesome. But there seemed to be a whole bunch of things that were 'highlighted'. The dog while the were looking at the house, cue the dog at the end. The hammer when they first entered, the young guy and the hammer at the end. The gun under the bed, cue getting the gun when he runs out of bullets in the burglers one. Ugh-FUCK!!
 It was a good movie, but it just ran out steam. I was going to watch A quiet place, but im already of the opinion that it borrows alot from this film.
 
 Kinda shit having to read subtitles in order to watch, what i believe, is a decent film, but corprate studios seem to be getting more overseas filmakers to try and dress up the garbage there serving to the masses to get there money.
 Fede Alvarez. Evil dead. Uruguay.
 Roar Uthaug. Tomb raider. Norway

The Vengeance Trilogy. Dir. Park Chan Wook. South Korea.
 Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance (2002) 6/10
 Oldboy (2003) 10/10
 Lady Vengeance (2005) 8/10
 The first was a little slow for the first half then the story started to fall into place and the 'revenge' aspect kicked in split equally between two of the characters.
 
 Oldboy iv seen twice already, it didn't really need much thought, you follow the main bloke while he figures out why he was imprisoned.
 Absolute garbage remake. 0 out of fucken 10 for that one.
 
The third one had alot of flashbacks at the start and kinda slowed down near the end. But was similar to the first in that you really had to watch what was presented.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6D0cjs2NW9whttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PArwr-HiU_Yhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzXbV9a5GA4

Mourning grave. South Korea. 9/10
 A young bloke whose sees ghosts has to confront a grudge.
 It has a really good and effective drama plot with elements of horror. The 'ghosts' are what you expect in a asian horror and there was a scene that reminded me The Wailing, another S.K. stunner. Everything came together nicely at the end. Can't fault it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTGfsOIhMbo (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTGfsOIhMbo)
Villmark 2. (Wilderness 2) 2015. Norway. 7.5
 Five contract workers take on a job of tracking hazardous waste in an old sanatorium before demolishing.
 I haven't watched the first one which a group of people go to remote cabin. This time is a clean up crew in a abandonded hospital.
 The plot was...just really not there, but, ironicly, it established a creepy atmosphere early on and just slowly cranked it up. It used cameras set up to detect motion and noises/sounds repeatedly to create a real sense of dread.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YeooSEbDB5I (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YeooSEbDB5I)

 Wer. 2013 3/10
 A huge bloke is charged with murder.
 Interesting plot that failed get going, similar final act to the Nicholson, Spader film Wolf (1994). Hit the fast-forward button at the 37min mark and didn't stop till the end.
 The film can mostly be seen in the trailer, in fact, after just watching it again, this is a classic example of a 'preview' showing the whole fim.
 (Spoiler) Bloke shaving his head has final fight with werewolf, is bloke with glasses on, gets bit at start.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YC1DQsaKdgw
Ready player one. 2018. Garbage.
 Virtual reality with a load 'green screen'.
 The 'flatmate' decided we needed to "watch a movie together." I'd downloaded this for someone else. I lasted 40 mins and got bored, by 55 i was real angry about wasting my time, so i left the room. I flicked to Kubrick tribute on my laptop, lasted 2 seconds, couldn't be bothered. She came to see if i wanted to watch The Shinning part. She got a flat no.

Wristcutters. A love story. 2006. 8/10

 A black romantic comedy about suicide. Nice story with some funny moments, everything you'd expect in a rom-com.
 Probably wouldn't watch it again, but for a change of pace it was worth it.

Ŕ l'intérieur (Inside) [/b]2007. 10/10
 French home invasion.
 Watched this a few years ago and it was always in the back of my mind to see it again.
 It didn't disappoint, at all. A simple film, but loaded with suspense and violence.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEJVXgktgks
The Church. 1989. Italy. 7/10
 Co produced/written by Dario Argento. Directed by a long time assistant of Argento.
 It as a 'B-grade' feel about it, but a solid story. The effects are well done, and the film in general looks like a decent amount of thought have been put in to how scenes are actually filmed.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ts0zmKCiVvY
I saw the devil. 9/10 South Korea.
 Cat and mouse with humans.
 I'v seen two of the directors previous films, The good, the bad, the weird. A tale of two sisters. The second is better but this was alot simpler plot wise and alot more brutal.
 Having seen a few of these 'revenge' movies now, it's interesting how little they tread on each other.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwWgp1bqVwE

We are what we are. (Somos lo que hay) 2010. Mexico. 7/10
 A family of cannibals slowly go mad.
 The film is only 80 mins long and depicts a poor family sliding down at a slow pace due the loss of the father at the start. It is bleak and depressing to a degree, but each of the four main characters it set up differently. I saw it some years ago and enjoyed it, and i would rate it the same again.
 There was a american remake, i took a look at that trailer.
 Compared to the original.
 Garbage.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFO_qYqvnZo
The doll master. South Korea. 2004.
 6.5/10
 A group of people are invited to a house and killed one by one.
 The storyline is easy to follow with a drama/horror mix that does get more layered. The 'twists/reveals' are mainly in the second half but tie together nicely, probably not worth a 2nd watch.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Lr1W77xhH0
The Flu. 2013. South Korea. Didn't finish it.
 Infection rips thru a city, no zombies.
 It had the makings of a intense drama/disaster but after the first hour, and with a full second hour to go, it slowed right down and a heavy bureaucrat feel took over. I flicked thru some of the rest but it was dragging too much for me care. Long scenes of politicians and soliders arguing.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BvKZMg2LjU

De Palma. 2015 8/10
A doco with the director Brain De Palma talking by himself about the his career in film.
The film is basicly a conversation with De Palma intercut with the films he has made as he talks about them.
Interesting that he doesn't fit in with the 'Hollywood mold' even thou he is, as he says early on, the same era as Spielberg, Coppola, Scorsese and Lucas. De Palma is lighthearted and explains his the way his movies are filmed and what happened as a result.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97XoMjwoZ5w
Bedevilled. 2010. South Korea. 9/10
 A slow burn film, that falls into the 'revenge' genre they do incredibly well.
 It all tied together, and the 2nd half was nice and bloody.
 An intense watch that left me happy and sad.

Euthanizer (Armomurhaaja). 2017 Finland. 7/10
 A strange black comedy/drama about mercy killing, an old bloke does pet killing along side vehicle repairs, the film evolves from there, the characters all have a shade of death about them, so any moments of humour are fleeting. It's basic in some of it's plot but ties up well at the end.
 Uncomfortably satisfying some it up for me.
 I got a copy off torrent, but it had french subs hardcoded, i still watched it with english over them and enjoyed it.

 Nekromatik. Germany. 1987. 7/10
A film with a interesting soundtrack, not a lot of dialouge, bad acting, and a notorious reputation.
People read about it, probably think one thing and then it's completly flipped if they watch it.
It has alot of dream scenes and whole parts where its just quiet or piano. I like the surreal factor of it and not having watched it for a few years i think its a solid film that makes think about what the hell is being presented.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6bJwvD2qrQ

Deadpool 2. 2/10
Rubbish.
Downloaded for a collegue at work, flicked thru the 2 hour run time is 30 mins and didn't think i really missed anything.
Some of the parts i watched were funny, but im glad i didn't sit down to try and suffer thru it.

Nekromantik 2 Germany. 1991. 6/10
 Having read reviews of this a few years ago, i knew that it didn't have quite the 'impact' of the first one. It picks up where it left off, and has alot of similar traits as the first. Not much dialouge, interesting soundtrack, and a notorious reputation. Better acting.
 Just over 111 minutes compared to 75 for the first one. I got kinda bored by the 70min mark and flicked thru a couple of the longer scenes.
 Overall, it didn't fuck around at the start but soon slowed down, the ending was pretty unique but really a film that works if you have seen the first one and actually liked it like i did.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOPslvrzfvs

Audition. Japan. 1999.
10/10
A superb drama/thriller about a man who does a fake audition for a movie and falls for a mystery woman.The last 30mins are when the horror kicks in, but it is restrained and respectful of the overall tone of the film. Well worth the reputation as a Asian classic.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhsrsWcEspc (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhsrsWcEspc)

The Outlaws. 2017. South Korea. 6/10
A 'based on...' crime bust in 2004. Complicated but a good crime drama, stars the 'dad-to-be' actor from Train to Busan as a tough cop.
After i'd lost track of some plot threads, I was still entertained by the two main characters to continue.
The fight scenes were well done.

Eraserhead. 1977.
 8/10
 David Lynch is a director whose T.V./films iv largely ignored. Eraserhead iv watched twice now, fine piece of 'endurance' cinema. To try and think about the 'plot' of the movie is to remember what largely went over my head and served only to confuse me, i recognise elements of plot, but are just enjoying the ride with a strong coffee to stay awake.

Caligula. 1979
 4/10
 Saw this years ago and thought it was alright. Then i read about this short doco, Mission Caligula. I heard lengthy interviews with the two main people, Alex and Kelly about the whole mess that was post production. I tried to rewatch it the other night and after 90 min was largely bored. It would be interesting to see a true cut of the film.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLX9JOXdaaM&t=29s

Nightmare of elm st. 1984.
 8/10
 Was doing some drawings and had this one in the background. Still good film.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCVh4lBfW-c
Inferno. 1980
 3/10 (fell asleep)
 Dario Argento film. One of The Three Mothers trilogy. The 1st was Suspiria, i watched that last year and felt it didn't really live up to the hype.
 This one i fell asleep near the end of. It's not colourful as Sus, but has the Argento 'style' some scenes are really good, but it drags after the hour mark.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbKgG_TC_To

Goodnight mommy. Austria. 20148/10
A creepy psychological thriller with a small cast and limited sets.Pegged for a remake, good luck with that. The film is quiet and subtle, there are clues dropped in through out but you would really have to pay attention to see it and pick what happens. Reminded me alot of A tale of two sisters. Similar idea but pegged back.I watched an 'ending explained' video that was helpful.Overall, pretty good film.

The nun. France, 1966.6/10
Not the pile of shit people to stupid to read reviews of are watching now.
A young woman is sent to a convent against her will.Based a novel by Denis Diderot, died 1768. It's 2.5 hours long and is gives a not to flattering view of religious life.
It wasn't boring but the plot was fairly oppressive, social standing and class are explained at the start so you are aware as the viewer that if Suzanne (the nun) gets out there'll be no 'happy ending' for her. And there isn't.It goes thru a series of events involving a lawyer, a court hearing, three different mother superiors and a priest that helps her near the end. But there is still a sense of forboding doom about the whole thing.A interesting film that hammers home certain points about life in general.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kD5Au1sJmjc&t=5s

Black '47. Ireland. 2018.8.5/10Set in the spud famine of 1847, a Irish solider comes back from fighting for the British in Afghanistan.It's a 'revenge' film set in a real historical time. Because of the use of one-shot-muskets there is a distinct lack of 'bullets flying'.The film is quiet and simple, but builds to a quiet but brutal ending.

Hotel Artemis. 2018
2/10
By the look of the trailer i 'thought' it might be low budget action with a decent cast, the idea seems to be taken straight from the John Wick films. A safe house hotel where crims can go.
The J.W. films were diet-light on plot but at least they entertained with alot of action.
Not this. It's really just a drama, and not a very convincing one. Again got to the 45 min mark and hit the FF button.

Don't worry, he won't get far on foot. 2018 Dir. Gus Van Sant
4/10
Bio-pic of a paralyzed cartoonist John Callahan’s autobiography. Joaquin Phoenix as John, with Jonah Hill.
Hill is good as the softly spoken AA sponsor and Phoenix as the wheelchair bound cartoonist. I was bored by the 45 min mark and started hitting off the FF button, the bulk of the story was 'John' becoming a cartoonist and his therapy sessions in AA that became a drawn out process.
Last years You Were Never Really Here also produced by Amazon was a much better.

Heavy trip. Finland. 2018.10 outta fucking 10!!!The ultimate metal comedy.The plot is simple and kinda predictable, but the humour is really fucken solid which makes the film. I found myself laughing out loud most of the way thru it. If your not a metal fan some of the references will be lost and the music is pure death metal. But the film has enough in it that anyone could be entertained.It was fun to see the T-shirts, the band references, the George 'corpsegrinder' Fisher head-banging style.This is a movie i will re-watch again, and will enjoy.

The night eats the world. France.3/10A single actor zombie movie. No subtitles.The tension is there is for the first 20+ mins then it becomes a 'how to manage alone' film. By the magical 40 min mark i had the remote in my hand was content to F.F. to the end. The marjority of the film is focused on just the one bloke in a building, but he doesn't make any attempt to go anywhere. Reminded me a 2010 german zombie film, Rammbock. Shorter in length with more characters and also set in a building. The plot was alot better.

Thirst. 2009. Dir. Park Chan Wook. South Korea.8/10
A vampire drama.The first time i tried to watch i fell asleep at the one hour mark, run time is 2hrs, since then iv watched a few other South Korean/asian films.It's a slow burn with the main focus a priest turned vampire. Not a alot of gore or violence, a bunch of people do die, but not overly gruesome. The film has a few layers to it that slowly come to the surface. Not for everyone, but iv seen 7 of his movies now and i would rate them all pretty highly.
