VHS's were the bomb. I still get nostalgic over the commercials from old Disney VHS's. Sadly, m Lion King VHS doesn't have all the commercials, so it kills the vibe. Still, I got an amazing movie to follow up afterwards.

I ave a few VHS's. Too bad my Pee Wee VHS stops working after "What makes you think the Soviets were involved?"

I have a nostalgia for VHS too. There's a pretty solid collection at my parents' house from when I was a kid. My brother was born in 2000 so he didnt really get to experience it to the same extent I did but yeah I wuv em

Loved it. So happy that they didn't go with the cartoon character with the goofy voices in his head that Deadpool became later on. There was so much from the Joe Kelly run from the late nineties and it was awesome. Also loved all the references to Reynold's failed appearances in Green Lantern and X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Tangerine

This film had really great realism and gritty lighting that I really enjoyed, but it felt too much like a rehash of Crash (although the web of intermingling stories approach is handled better by this film). It was certainly thought provoking, interesting, and captivating throughout, but I wasn't wowed by any means either, placing it on the verge of being something great. I'd give it a 6/10.

Watched The Texas Chainsaw Massacre for the first time last night. Why exactly is it so highly rated? There were definitely some good scenes: the part where the one girl enters the house and stumbles upon the bone altar was legitimately unsettling, the scene after that where she is hung up on a meat hook and watches her boyfriend get dismembered was sweet, and the dinner scene was pretty original.

But in a lot of ways it was simply a mildly entertaining exploitation flick. At no point was I ever scared (but I don't really get scared by movies, so horror films generally have to have other things going for them, and this movie did not), the only memorable protagonist was the crippled brother, the villains were too cartoonish to take seriously, the atmosphere was severely lacking, and the dinner scene, while entertaining, had so many ludicrous cuts (as in editing cuts) and over-the-top screaming from the main character that it went from genuinely creepy to just plain goofy in a very short span of time.

I'd honestly take the remake over the original. It might not be brilliant by any stretch of the imagination, but the opening scene with the crime scene footage was phenomenal, the kills were more exploitatively delicious, and... that guy from Full Metal Jacket's character was amazing.

Because it's awesome and the creepy disturbing vibe is executed (heh) really well.

Meh. I honestly didn't get much of any kind of vibe for most of the movie. That first kill, where Leatherface just opens a door and matter-of-factly hits the guy in the head with a hammer, sealed the deal for me that I wasn't going to give much of a **** about the movie. I get that the director was going for a spontaneous-looking shot that you were expecting, just not in the way that it was executed, but it still felt like, "Oh, I guess that happened... so... next scene?"
