The Cabin in the Woods.

Originally, I was going to find this film to be shitty, and as a matter of fact, it started slow, and it was gonna turn for the worst, but then roughly 35 minutes in, I got frightened and it was actually pretty good.

Watched Catch Me If You Can recently with my girlfriend. We decided to see it because we had listened to

speak about his life as a con man at a community dinner event not too long before. It was really interesting, and the movie is definitely worth seeing.

İki Başlı Dev, featuring the star of Turkish Star Wars, Cüneyt Arkın, in a serious dramatic role(and it has sync sound, which is a rarity with Turkish films).

In spite of the fact that I could only understand 1 out of every 800 words, it managed to hold up and ended up being a fairly effective movie.

The Curse of Frankenstein. Last night on TCM they were showcasing some Hammer films, who make some of the most interesting and shlocky horror movies (from England). Just before that movie was one of their infamous Dracula movies, and when Frankenstein starts, we thought it was pretty bad. The two films were made only a year apart and it seemed as if Frankenstein was just a ho-hum movie.

We were wrong.

The movie is very different from the Universal movie, in that the character of Frankenstein himself is much more of an asshole who does whatever he can to get what he wants, including murder. The movie is also very nice to look at, being in color, and the make-up effects are really good for an older movie. Also, Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing, you can't really go wrong with their acting.

The movie is much darker, but doesn't necessarily follow the book. It's just a good adaptation that you can appreciate. I recommend this, especially at night with the lights out not because it is scary, but the mood fits it that much better.

Chungking Express

A very unique film from Hong Kong. It's more about mood than plot, but it accomplishes that mood very well.

I came back from the US premiere of the two Madoka Magica films. The changes they made from the TV series to the films made the already incredible story that much better, including revamped voice-acting and animation, a more varied soundtrack that enhances the scenes, and a streamlined narrative.

Unfortunately, I didn't have enough time to stick around for the trailer for the third film, as I was late to my brother's belated birthday party.

Saw The Cabin in the Woods. I was not expecting a movie that good. I thought it would be a little cheesy, but you can tell how much effort went into the movie, especially towards the end. Not quite what I was expecting horror-wise, but the film is so great to watch and gripped me the entire time.

I can't help but think of this movie every time I watch a shitty horror film, because that's literally what's going on.

I even spotted the Left 4 Dead monsters without much searching, pretty cool.

Fun Fact: Valve was originally going to make a Cabin In The Woods tie-in campaign for Left 4 Dead, but since the movie got stuck in production hell for two years they never came around.

Actually, that fact isn't fun at all. That fact fucking sucks.

I just rewatched Adams Family Values (Adams Family 2).

I haven't seen the original film in a while so I can't comment on that but I loved Adams Family Values. I forgot how hilarious wednesday adams is and I love that the camp they get sent to is for 'overprivledged children'. The ending 20 or 30 minutes of the film aren't as strong as the rest of the movie but by that point you're invested enough in the characters to want to finish it.

The Fourth Kind

Even though the fact that it wasn't actually based on real events disappointed me a little, it's still a really well put-together horror film.
