The Howling (1981)

For whatever reason by the late '70's early '80's there was a revival in werewolf movies and this was one of the frontrunners. It's got a pretty decent score and the effects are pretty impressive for the time. This movie definitely had a profound impact on Neil Marshall's 2002 debut film Dog Soldiers, especially with how the werewolves looked. That said though, the film isn't perfect, it has a really strong and profound opening, then just kind of rides this wave of quality, dipping and raising throughout the movie. There's one really memorable sequence with a lady on the phone, but besides that the movie did have some problems.

6/10

Pretty much every David Cronenberg movie, etc.
What about Trailer Park Boys: The Big Dirty? Or is that TPB: The Movie? I could swear there were three TPB movies, right?

Also, had no idea Heavy Metal was Canadian. Well done!

The Big Dirty is often just shortened to Trailer Park Boys: The Movie. As to there being three movies, this is kind of true, but not really. There was a feature film released in 1999 that kind of set the scene that would start off the 1st season, although heavily retconned. It had many of the same actors, but in different parts, most notable was Mike Smith, who played a documentary crew sound man instead of Bubbles.




Delicatessen (1991)

I can't believe i slept on this one for so long. I've known about its existence for a couple of years now but always put it off. Even when I found it on streaming Netflix I put it into my instant que but never got around to watching it until last night. Better late than never I suppose! This is easily one of the best dark comedies I have ever seen, which really says a lot. What makes this work so well is that much of the humour is entirely of your own creation, like it was portrayed as straight-faced but because the misfortune is always at the expense of someone else you can't help but laugh, which is how dark humour is meant to be. Not only that the timing and delivery is absolutely spot-on and there is a wide array of idiosyncratic characters that are all memorable in their own way, like the woman who hears voices inside her head and tries (and fails) to kill herself in overly elaborate ways like that one vintage Mickey Mouse comic.

9.5/10

The Cabin in the Woods

This movie was GREAT. I got really excited once I found out that this movie has a 73 on metacritic. It didn't let me down in the slightest, in fact it exceeded my expectations. I can't really say too much about it because I don't wanna give anything away, but this movie definitely flips the horror genre on it's head. It was fantastic, it has everything a good horror movie needs. It made me laugh out loud, jump out of my seat, and cringe at the massive amounts of gore. I love this movie! I'll probably go see it again during the week cause it was so awesome.

9/10

If you like horror movies you owe it to yourself to go see this.

You forgot Atom Egoyan The Sweet Hereafter and Exotica are excellent films.

saw this on TV:-



how do you present an amoral basically non-sympathetic character in a movie? make it a mystery. It's mostly a case of who shot who and for what.

For its defense, Timothy Olyphant does portray Agent 47 with a poignant touch, coloring his stoic professionalism with shades of humanity but still mostly a time-waster.

5/10

bless tims heart, he did everything he could with the cardboard silhouette videogame character. When you have a fucking barcode tattooed on your head i imagine it would be hard to evoke anything convincingly yet he still manages to pull it off some of the time.The girl was nice too.

I can only cite stuff I've actually seen, but I will put those choices on my list of movies to see.

do you like horror movies? this movie was made for you!.....there are more odes to classic characters from Clive Barker to HP Lovecraft than any film i've ever seen.....all this and an actual original plot!!!!! HOLY SHIT

anyways like Phantom Limb said i don't want to ruin anything except to say that this movie rocked my socks off....and i will be seeing it again at least once if not twice before it leaves the theaters

there was one point that i actually had to relax and take a deep breathe to try and control the tears

this may be my film of the year

Will have to check that out. Someone I know is already hyping it... because she is a huge Heather Lagenkamp fan (who was on the production team).
