Full Metal Jacket, last 2 nights. It was on TV both times so i figured it would be rude to ignore a timeless classic. Expendables prior to that.

Silver Linings Playbook

PIECES (1982) - a thoroughly entertaining, but totally batshit crazy italian slasher film. it starts with a young lad axing his mother to death and then cutting her to pieces with a saw after she destroys the jigsaw puzzle he was putting together. the police, along with a nosy neighbour soon come along, and our lad craftily blags his way out of being fingered for offing his dear ol' ma.

fast forward some years and there's a spate of gruesome murders on a university campus somewhere in boston where the (sexy female) victims are being attacked by a chainsaw wielding psycho who is apparently chopping off and keeping various body parts for which we later find out is for a rather macabre human jigsaw puzzle.

enter the clueless police, who in their increasing desperation to catch the killer, enlist the help of a male student to do their detective work for them. he's partnered with a female cop who is working undercover as the tennis coach (she's fucking useless at tennis  ;D).

oh, and then there's the utterly bizarre kung fu scene that just comes the fuck out of nowhere and leaves you wondering, 'why did that happen?'.

anyway, there's sex, nudity, and gore aplenty with great special effects in this odd but fun film.

EDGE OF TOMORROW (2014) - GROUNDHOG DAY meets THE MATRIX meets STARSHIP TROOPERS in this highly entertaining, scifi blockbuster, starring tom cruise (who is awesome btw), as an unwilling recruit sent to the front to fight some alien force that has attacked and conquered most of europe. hopelessly out of his depth in battle, the inevitable soon happens that results in a rather strange twist of fate for cruise. i won't say anymore for risking spoilers.

great action, some very funny laugh out loud moments, and of course, bill paxton 8) oh, and emily blunt was kickass too even though she's fugly.

8/10

THE MALIBU BIKINI SHOP (1986) - the last time i watched this on video, i spent most of the film hoping that my erection would go unnoticed ;D fortunately, or maybe unfortunately. i had no such worries this time.

a little dated but was still surprisingly fun to watch. 6/10

i swear, nobody does cheese and feel good quite like the 80s did 8)

Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011). Netflixed it. One of the better recent films no one's heard of.

Had no idea Stanley Kubrick grew up in New York. Thought for sure he was a lifelong Brit.

CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS (1953) - the city is chicago. we get to peek at the underbelly of the city for one night only. we follow an honest but jaded cop who's ready to throw it all in for a nightclub dame and a chance to follow his dream. only things don't pan out as expected when he is partnered for the night by a police officer he's never seen before.

IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE meets noir. 7/10

Looking forward to Fincher's Gone Girl, but I'm finishing the book first. Very interesting read so far.

The Howling Reborn. This movie fucking sucked. All the greatness of the original The Howling was not present at all. Instead it seemed like they tried turning it into some sort of Twilight-esque bullshit. Do not recommend at all.


The Legend of Hercules. Another dud. The guy they picked out to be Hercules just has no acting ability. As you can tell, as he seems to portray Hercules as if he had downs syndrome. Also, his strength in the movie is inconsistent at best. Sometimes being able to pull superhuman feats and others seemingly being weaker than a normal human. I don't recommend at all.


Dallas Buyers Club. Awesome flick!! Wasn't a fan of Matthew McConaughey at all, until I saw this movie. I couldn't help but wonder where was this guy's acting ability before? Because he stepped up his game and knocked this role right out of the park. Highly recommended!!

Well that's sad to read. I was excited to see this one. Thought it might be good.

The Stonehearst Asylum. Don't think it hit theaters yet, but saw it today On Demand. Very well done, hoping Brad Anderson is back on his game again (Session 9, The Machinist, Transsiberian, then some duds). Has a Shutter Island feel with a few jarring twists, but the story, far as I can tell, is uniquely its own. Highly recommended.

Also finishing up Child of God, a Cormac McCarthy book adapted by James Franco. Just arrived on Netflix and seems pretty faithful to the novel. Dark and twisted, as one would expect from the author, but a must-see for a McCarthy fans.

Has anyone seen a psychological thriller (maybe horror) called Triangle? Heard good things, so I got that and Martyrs on deck. Don't recall being overwhelmed by the latter, but talk here lately has me wanting to give it a second try.
