    Grave of the Fireflies

    I dunno how I finally heard/read about it, but checked its ratings out and made an awkward face that GotF was rated higher than just about everything. When Ro mentioned "Bloodlust" I assumed he was mentioning Vampire.Hunter.D.Bloodlust (2000), because that one kicks some serious ass.

    Some of the finest films, IMO, hardly break 7 while this one actually broke 8, meaning it's up there with the small group of 8ers you've seen at least twice. So I cringed and DL'd it.

    Now, the bad news is that I can't talk about this one without spoiling it. Do I agree it's worthy of a genuine IMDb 8? Possibly... possibly. This film was not intended to remotely interest sleazy misanthropes like myself and all the other voters that bomb good movies.

    It is the only one that is about something that I should know back and forwards, I really should, but...

    The night eats the world

    yet another zombie flick that takes place in Paris but where everyone talks in English, if they talk at all, not much talking in this film


    best part is how this shit goes down which also serves as a way to survive a zombie outbreak


    the guy is at a party, gets sleepy drunk, retreats to an empty room and falls asleep on a chair. Wakes up next day and the house if splattered with blood and everyone is a zombie, the streets look like a bomb went off and no survivors in site. He retreats back to his apartment and the story proceeds from there. So to survive a zombie outbreak just fall asleep and wake up the next day when most of the chaos has subsided and society has collapsed in around the 8 hours you were asleep.

    That was a really fast zombie break and surrender but this is France, so what do you expect.





    Incident in a Ghost Land

    pretty decent "home invasion" horror that plays the "what the fuck is going on here" card.

    Only Japan and Takashi Miike can make a movie this crazy

    How about a film that stars SSS sitting in a comfy leather chair wearing nothing but a smoking jacket and reading Shakespeare's sonnets.

    That would be horrifying in a Toby Hopper Texas literature massacre kind of way

    It is what you don't see that makes a movie scary, not all the torture porn.

    Blood Meridian cannot be made. There aren't enough Xs to fit on its box, or whatever those things are called today.

    The first two scenes would make it better than anything already made, but it would get so damn worse. Joining a militia to kill Indians? They found the white men first and killed almost all of them, raping their assholes while scalping them and yelling out joyously.

    It gets even worse. Alot worse, when Judge Holden suddenly shows up - sitting on a rock in a desert for no logical reason other than waiting for the Glanton gang to become one of its... "members." I actually have paragraphs JH said memorized because they're so special.

    I won't type anything else about it because it would be the worst goddamn spoiler(s) ever made. The movie couldn't be made, ever. He's had two of his books turn into movies: The Road and No Country for Old Men. Blood Meridian? Not a chance...

    welcome to 1436 vlad the impaler. I like a women who can survive an impalement not one that becomes a tourist attraction for a bunch idiots who hang around cannibals then act all outraged when things go horribly wrong.

    Oh yes, I almost forgot the part of your post that exposed you admitting that today's CGI spoofs make you feel like a modern impalement is sick.

    The impalement scene makes you feel and smell the dirty hot heat and sweat dripping off this bad ass bitch as she fucks up some assholes who tried to kill her. Best revenge movie with girl since Savaged aka Avenged (2013)

    Prince of Darkness never loses my interest. Most good movies suck by the third time you watch them (many/most), but not PoD. If you need me to quickly explain how to save and watch or stream it through uTorrentPro 3.5.3, ask...

    SPOILER ALERT!!! Halfway into the film there is an incredibly tender lesbian scene in which Kelly projectile vomits into Lisa's mouth. Top stuff!!! I remember watching this at age 18 and wishing there was more of it; sadly I would have many long years to wait until the offerings of Two Girls One Cup would surpass my wildest expectations of the genre.

    This honey is one of John Carpenter's least known films, but it'll always be on my U list. It starts lowly, introducing its audience to the characters (alongside with one minor role character JC includes in almost all of his movies) in a way that makes an easy goin' start. It doesn't pop the champagne for some time.

    Then again, it reminds me a little of The Thing when the shit hits the fan after a slow beginning, which JC can do with his work. Anyway, a team of invitees have come to a nice church that's hiding something. It's been hiding for God knows how long. Well, the last priest dies early and his key is found.

    What is down there isn't something anybody expected to see, let alone the audience. I won't even try to explain it - it's unique in that the singularity of evil has never been shown as it is before or after this one. Interesting.

    The dialogue cannot be understood by the average blue collared Rusty's of the world. In fact, even the educated must pay close attention and possibly even have to click some conversations back to grasp what a professor is attempting to explain to the grad students who have come to try to help for reasons unkown by anybody.

    So a slow start and deep lectures/conversations between just about everybody on screen turns most people away to grab another beer before changing what used to be called a "channel(?)." Thank Fuck, pass out wearing your boots.

    The movie is tense, and some would call "scary;" Rusty wouldn't know what the Hell you were talking about. Hell, Rusty, Hell. I'm very proud of you. Now go read the Drudge Report so you can tell us what we have no clue about the "Truth!"

    I won't tell y'all about much more about the movie itself because I don't need to. Do you really like movies made by John Carpenter? Do you think you might like movies based around a new concept of pure evil? Got some time to burn? Good, like the movie. As always, you know where to go and know whose nic to click (YIFY)...

    Vampire.Hunter.D.Bloodlust


    I should've been keeping this thread updated with movies I don't think you've seen but may like, unlike most of the films on my Utorrent. So away we go:

    I should tell you all that Bloodlust is actually the second/last of the series, so go right ahead and watch it first: Vampire.Hunter.D.

    So this movie isn't like another gay Japanese anime. In fact, it isn't like any other I've come across. The frame of the film sets up pretty quickly, and is somewhat predictably straight forward. To begin. The rest is intriguing to me because the characters are so different than the ones we always watch. It's hard not to fuck this up by telling you all of the different powers and goals the characters have.

    Almost every drawn female's breasts are displayed, the puzzles are awkward and new, and oh yeah, there's a group of hardcore humans trying to beat the hero to the finish line. That group of humans have their own specialties I hadn't thought up before, and I doubt any of you posters have either. The curveballs thrown into this one are frequent and alien and never make you wanna just hit pause or stop and find something else to do or watch.

    Do NOT read the goddamn reviews of this one at IMDb - just go there and see its grade, but I'll go ahead and tell you that it gets a good score of 7.7/10. For those of you who go to that site a lot to see scores movies you're thinking about giving a stab, the highest score on the site is 8.8 - Godfather - if I'm right, and nobody argues that score. Most get a 6 or even 5 and they still have reason to watch, but a 7.7 tells you all you need to know.
    I won't say anything about it and you shouldn't read other reviews before it ends. It's worth a watching, it has many cool things in it and characters you've never seen the like before...
