Tell Me What You Think...
... of my review, AND of the movie I reviewed.
So???? - Do you think I'm spot on with my review or do you think I'm way off base? Let me know by checking "You are correct, sir" or "You are an idiot."
You can also give the movie a 'star' rating. Let me know how you thought of the film by rating it yourself! Just give a 1,2,3,4, or 5 star review. As always, feel free to leave your mark in the comments for each entry.

I fell asleep...
.. which is an amazing feat considering the fact that Resident Evil: Afterlife is one of the loudest most obnoxious movies I've ever gone to. It's just awful. As if it weren't bad enough, they torture the audience with slow motion; essentially doubling the actual length of the movie. Total crap.
I don't know, I guess I'm a sucker for the whole "Mocumentary" horror movie thing. I still like The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity... Quarantine was terrible, but I kinda dug The Last Exorcism.
The problem with most of these types of movies is the build-up. There needs to be the perfect amount of time to give you the information that you need and to lull you into a false sense of security, but not so much time that you get bored or frustrated. The Last Exorcism really pulls that off.
The acting is realistic and the shaky cam is effective. This one will really creep you out if you give in to it.
... which kinda sucks because I was looking forward to this one.
Machete misses the mark because, unlike in Piranha, it actually starts to take itself too seriously as the movie progresses. The first 15 minutes of the movie were hysterrically funny and a great homage to '70s B-movies. With immigration being such a hot topic, the writers couldn't resist trying to send a message. What that message is?... I really don't know... and thats where the movie takes a turn for the worse.
I fell asleep after the main character slices open a man's abdomen and, holding on to the end of the guy's intestines, jumps through a (closed) window and swings in through the (closed) window for the floor below. Other than the opening sequence, there were little winks throughout, but in the end, Machete just wasn't able to hold my attention.
