Ok, I tried to watch The Human Centipede (because how controversial people pretend it is) and I couldn't get through half of it but not for the reason you think.....



......I couldn't take it seriously, rather more as a dark comedy. It actually reminded me of a less amusing version of this:

Yep, I agree. It's just controversy surround this really badly shot, scripted and acted atrocity that has given it any attention

I can tell you one thing with absolute certainty, horror movies are near impossible to pull off.

Either you're looking at a really over dramatic Frankenstein meets Andrew Loyd Weber slasher bull****

Or you're just looking at gore, that is so physically impossible that the only way you can interpret it, is as absurdity


99% of horror movies I've seen, are in that boat, not many actually legitimately scare or actually psychologically/emotionally effect me at all, it's not a good mark for these "horror" directors

It was really good. I don't know if I would personally call it the best, I'd have to think about it, but it would certainly be a contender for this title. And it made me fall in love with Emily Blunt
Anyway, I read somewhere it is the second and not the last manga that Tom Cruise brings to the big screen - I know he's not directing it, but he is behind theses projects - "Oblivion" was the first, it had great visuals but that's about it. Edge of Tomorrow is better imo in every way. And then supposedly, there are other projects like this on the horizon and quite frankly, I can't wait.
Anyone has any info on this ?

Expand to international horror. Hit up some Korean and Spanish ones.

Edit: Ah Chio beat me to that rec. I didn't refresh the page.

The Summer of '42 - commercial free on TMC. First time decades. Forgot great of a movie it was. Easily one of the best 'coming of age' movies ever made.

And that last scene between Hermie and Dorothy is equal parts sad and amazingly beautiful. The camera work is amazing and the director having most of the scene be devoid of music or any dialogue was perfect.

O'neill and Grimes' performances are so incredible considering they had to act the majority of the scene with just their eyes and bodies.
