The Ascent

This was a beautifully shot film, the ending was extraordinarily moving and the acting was fantastic. I found myself enthralled the entire way through, it's really one of the better films that I have seen in quite a while.


Requiem

This one was interesting. The phasing between the main character's epilepsy and possession was fascinating, and the role played by religion in the film and the character's complacency towards her sickness was an intriguing portrait of her persona, albeit a tad bit unrealistic. This movie definitely made me think, and I sense a reviewing in the near future.

So, so fucked up. The first one was a laugh. This one is just... no.

Wow. I must say that I'm very impressed with this one. I didn't see Frontiers and had no interest in seeing Hitman but this film is definitely in the top ten films released this year. If you're expecting a lot of action then don't watch this because it'll probably be boring. It reminded me A LOT of Blindness in the way it portrays how people can react to a natural or man made disaster. It's one of the better psychological horror films I've seen recently. Check it out if you're into that kind of thing.

8.5/10

Wow. That's one of the most well-directed, gorgeous, and compelling films I've ever seen. Makes every other war movie I've seen (with the exception of Saving Private Ryan, though this is still superior) look like a b-movie. 9.5/10

The last film I watched was Titanic. I really enjoy that movie, it was so well made and Leonardo Dicaprio is an excellent actor. I was very happy with it.

Assault on Precinct 13 (1976)

This has long been the missing piece to my John Carpenter experience and I can't for the life of me think why I chose to miss out on it for so long. The film was really well done with some great action scenes, really well done tension, and a frighteningly real threat. What's also great about it is it's action that precedes the 1980's blockbuster action, so don't expect any gasoline explosions for people to dive away from, or guns with seemingly unlimited ammo.



Harold and Maude (1971)

I have been recommended this film on a number of occasions from people, each one fo them saying how it is right up my alley. The premise looked intriguing enough, but sometimes I'm stubborn and put off what people recommend me. Better late than never I suppose, but Harold and Maude is just one of those films that makes you smile and think "yep, this film was made for me." Harold's multiple suicides never failed to make me laugh, especially the self-immolation one, and when he converted his classic '60's Jaguar into a mini-Hearse, I just had to applaud him. Hell even Maude was pretty funny, and I'm a person who dislikes the Manic Pixie Dream Girl stock. If you're into cult comedies, then this one is definitely for you.

my favorite movie. i feel in love with it on first viewing, and it became better and better the more I watched it. Can not wait for the Criterion release, that is coming in June.

this scene makes me smile every time

How good is the original Assault On Precinct 13? It is an urban western but I will forgive Carpenter as he created an insane amount of tension with such a tiny budget. Superb film. Outside of his classic three (Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York) it is up there with Prince Of Darkness and In The Mouth Of Madness for forgotten classics.
