    The scenes showing the atrocities at Abu Ghraib were genuinely disturbing; the camera work was really effective.

    Saw X yesterday. It was all right, but a bit overhyped. Will probably never see it again.

    It's magnificent. The core trio there are all on record as saying they'd love a sequel. It didn't exactly set the box office alight though and I suspect we're out of luck.

    8mm (1999)

    that ridiculous photo of nic cages new dracula outfit put me in the mood to revisit this stone cold classic from his filmography. I still like it! gandolfini, stormare and phoenix elevate the movie with their performances.
    must be the first time I noticed the snuff killer is a dead ringer for george costanza, they even named him george ... strange coincidence or intended?

    Ambulance.

    The most Michael Bay film ever made. I doubt any film will ever be more Michael Bay then this.

    I'm watching TASTELESS, a pretty great so far doc on the Truly Tasteless Jokes book series, which I had forgotten all about.

    Licorice pizza.

    Very uneven film. More to like then dislike though. Some hilarious small parts and side plots for sure.

    Still worth going to the cinema for though.

    this might be the best use of a body double in movie history! I totally believed I was watching kate beckinsale in various states of nudity the whole time.
    basically this is "the others" without nicole kidman but with a n̶a̶k̶e̶d̶ kate beckinsale and some weird looking 90s cgi.
    I mentioned this one in the Dead All Along thread. I had no idea that was Kate's bodydouble. You've totally ruined the movie for me!

    My Bloody Birthday aka Clownery-Saw the DVD cheap about a month ago and grabbed. Put it on to watch the other night and learned it is a modern Italy horror movie. Kind of a mixture of a giallo and a mid 80s slasher. While made in Italy it was filmed iin English,which adds a weird feel to all the dialogue.

    A college age girl had something happen as a child on her birthday. So she refuses to celebrate her birthday,and keeps seeing these two clowns all over.

    You got that kind of nightmare logic you would see in films like Night Killer,decent mostly practical FX work. And some odd clown fetish stuff.

    It is up on Youtube as Clownery and on TUBI as My Bloody Birthday.

    The Suicde Squad which has a profoundly dumb title but rises above that to at least be a hell of a lot better than original. Which is saying very little of course but it is mostly enjoyable.

    I was watching because I had sort of, kind of, enjoyed Peacemaker. That one definitely showed signs that it was a bit rushed on the script front. A lot of it felt very first drafty. The stuff you write when you're just desperate to fill pages. I figured the movie shouldn't have that issue and would be worth a look.

    This does have most of the stuff that made the tv series watchable and none of the stuff that made it look like it needed another 6 months to bake. It does however add the scale of a modern blockbuster which is always a bit obnoxious and overwhelming. But, hey, it had characters and personality and some laughs.

    Largely a good time. Way too long and a bit structurally unsound as well. There's a half hour section in the middle where it dies. Still better than it needed to be.

    'A Name For Evil' is a really weird one. It's like a boring, made-for-TV haunted house movie which has taken LSD and gone insane.

    With apologies for the blatant plug, I wrote a review of it just before Xmas.
