    Leave the World Behind 2 out of 5.

    This one had everything I wanted in regards to concept. Catastrophe, World Ending Scenario, and so many awesome thoughts that were ruined by an awful ending and writing that tried very hard to sneak in social talking points where they just weren't needed.

    This was just about a flop to me.










    Looking for the fonting of youth.

      I love dialogue driven movies and this one was just about perfect. A couple minor hiccups but overall a rock solid film. Original, smart, and intense. I wasn't convinced they could nail the ending but I think they did.
      I heard quite a bit of buzz about this movie and then it seems as if it wound up pretty divisive with audiences.  Like you, I am a big fan of dialogue-driven films, especially two-handers, so I'm still planning on checking it out.

        If you have the opportunity to watch this let us know your thoughts. I'm not sure this is horror but its certainly something devilishly good.

          Will do, but it might be a little bit for a get around to it.  My To-Watch pile is starting to get as unwieldly as my TBR pile!

            The Borderland/Final Prayer. 3.5/5

            Solid found footage movie with a bit of an odd ending. The whole thing kept my interest, lightly touched on some elements which are creepy, and overall worth a watch. I will say that I'm not sure they managed to make the entire thing coherent but they gave it a good go.

              You seem to recently be hitting all the movies that have been on my radar.  I'm kind of a  sucker for a decent found footage flick and this has been on my list for a while. Reviews, overall, seem to be middling, as is yours, but I still need to check it out. 

              By the way, how did you watch this?

                  The Block Island Sound. 3/5


                  Decent movie drawn out a little much. The use of ominous music was nice but overused, premise is solid, there is a lack of character development, but overall it was effective at keeping me entertained/interested.

                  I wish I could say more however I don't want to give anything away for those interested.

                    Graphic, violent, and disturbing. A gore fest and terrifyingly, sickeningly, fantastic. 

                    I'm not going to rate this one but feel this was a pretty darn good movie.

                      If you liked X, make sure to watch the prequel, PEARL, which, IMO, was a much better film.

                        Cool. I will keep an eye out for it. Thank you.

                          I've heard that sentiment a lot. I still need to check it out.

                            I'm not much of a slasher fan, but I really enjoyed X.

                              The last of the trilogy, MAXXXINE, is finished, but I don't think they've set a release date yet. Really looking forward to it, especially after Mia Goth's performance in PEARL. If the Oscars didn't hate Horror, she should have at LEAST been nominated. She was outstanding.

                                I've kinda been holding off on PEARL until MAXXINE comes out so I can watch all three in short time span. I'm rethinking that because this discussion has reignited that itch to see PEARL. Unfortunately, an Oscar nominations for horror will probably never happen in any significant way and sustained way. I thought for sure that the Academy would have to acknowledge Toni Collette's powerhouse of a performance in HEREDITARY. How that performance did not get all the nominations just completely baffles me.
