    I haven't thought about Teeth in a long time. I remember liking it. It might be time for a revisit.

    I've seen a few comments that it is too long at 2.5 hours but I would happily have spent even longer in the company of the delectable and devilish Rebecca Ferguson.
    It's Mike Flanagan, so I'm going to see it. Good to hear that you liked it!

    "I am just a tad leary about this "Chapter" buiz."

    Tyree,

    I completely agree about the chapter business with IT. One of the things that both movie versions of IT have gotten wrong is trying to serialize the story, i.e., tell the kids story first and the adult story second. What makes the novel so effective is that both storylines / timelines are told at the same time, so both reach their climax at the end of the book.

    Terminator: Dark Fate - I don't understand why no one is going to see this movie, I thought it was great. Not as good as T2, but certainly a much better follow up to the first two movies than any of the other Terminator movies. And it was great to see Hamiton & Schwarzenegger on screen together as these characters.

    Me and the wife sneaked out of work early today... and watched Doctor Sleep. Yep. We are old and been married a long time. LOL LOL

    I really enjoyed this movie. For me it had great pacing and went at a nice slow speed. Also loved how they handled a few tougher book to movie issues involving The Shining.

    I did notice one, what I think was as editing error, where they showed the same overhead driving scene twice but really no complaints.

    In regards to the rating I suppose I will put this at a 3.5/4 out of 5 stars. I think they could have done a little more in some places and a little less elsewhere.

    On a side note the movie theater gets a thumbs down for being out of popcorn buckets.

    Saw Dr. Sleep over the weekend and absolutely loved it. Not sure why it is a box office bomb other than perhaps pop culture is beginning to tire of the SK movie/tv explosion. While not a perfect movie, it kept me entertained the whole time even though it was a long run time. Also really loved the SK easter eggs in this movie. When one of the characters (not gonna mention who) said that "Ka is a wheel" my head could've exploded in happiness. I enjoyed this one way more than IT Chapter 2 (and I didn't dislike IT chapter 2 by any means, just felt it was a bit paint by numbers and that the media had already revealed some of the better scares)

    I loved to hear Ka as well. I could have sworn I heard someone say "Tak" but I wasn't sure.

    I'm surprised to hear that this isn't doing well at the box office. It really is a good movie and I think SK fans will really dig it.

    One Cut of the Dead: There are some movies that are such a pure delight that it's like a sunshine being cast down to bring joy to the world. They don't come that often and definitely not to the horror genre, but we have one with this fantastic little gem. I will give away on the barest of plot points, but it is the best if you go in knowing nothing. Don't read any other reviews. Don't watch a trailer. Nothing. Just take my word on this delightful film, sit back and have a good time.

    Essentially, the plot revolves around a director making a low budge zombie movie, but then real zombies show up. If you think you know this one, you don't.

    Helpful hint, stick with it. There's a slow buildup over the first 30 minutes, but after that hump, you'll have a great time. One of my favorite viewing experiences of the year. This is currently streaming on Shudder.

    Very good summary of the movie. Some very good actors in it.

    That Hell House LLC sounds interesting. I'll have to try to find that. Wish I had watched it in October, though. No big deal, certainly.

    Hard to look through the entire thread, but has anyone seen Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark? Just rented it this week at Redbox (there should be a movie about an evil DVD-rental kiosk, maybe with the same name; then again, has that already been done, even as an episode of something?).

    Thought I was going to really like it, but while it was cool, I was a bit disappointed. Trying to figure out why, and I think this is the reason: it was more of a Gothic tale (I do not know if I am using that term correctly here, but bear with me) than the Blumhouse-type tale I expected. I say Gothic because it is a period piece in a sense (I know not that far in the past, but still, wasn't it fifty years ago or something?) and it is about a family thing with a secret and a whole soap-opera-sort-of origin, and so on. I thought I was going to watch maybe a modern-day high-school film a la stuff like we've seen in the post-Scream era of horror cinema: teens have to fight an unknown evil entity that makes stories come to life, social media is all over the place, etc. Once you start explaining a backstory to me, for this type of film, I start to tune out, it becomes less fun. Stories just felt too serious, there wasn't enough trick-or-treating going on, if you know what I mean. The Toro guy (and I'm just not a fan of his to be honest) mentioned in the extra feature that they did it in a way such that it wasn't just a straight anthology...maybe that's what I wanted: anthology, wraparound. Not a 10+-film-festival pseudo-anthology (those are getting somewhat long in the tooth) but a true Creepshow-type work. Just not as fun as I thought. Never really knew about the book either, just heard of it...will have to check it out, think the stories are really short, which might be cool.

    I haven't seen it yet, but I'll probably give it a go soon. I've heard mixed reviews so I'll go in with my expectations in check.

    Just rewatched Collateral by Michael Mann. I just don't see this movie getting much love recently. Maybe it's because it's Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx so there's a dismissal of it due to Hollywood Star pedigree, but, man, I thought this movie worked so well. There is no fat on this movie as each scene serves a purpose and propels the plot the forward to its end. The moments that hum are the interactions between Cruise and Foxx especially near the end of the film when the veneer comes off Cruise's character and what is truly beneath shows through. And for an action film, it has an oddly melancholic tone to it that simply works. If you've never seen it or haven't seen it since it's release 15 (!!) years ago, I recommend revisiting it.

    I liked Mann's Collateral too. Original, violent and just plain entertaining. Never did get the lack of love for this way above average thriller.

    Socky, One Cut of the Dead: First film I will be ordering---looking forward to it. Thank you !

    Doctor Sleep, also. Appreciate all the heads up, fellas. Love's me some Flanagan, too. Sometimes I learn to just go with these bouts of insomnia, sit back in the dark and watch a good film or two, then back to bed.

    I watched one called Aged Out, a gut-wrencher with my boy Tye ( Joe ) Sheridan and an actress I always find amazing--Imogene Poots. Her face, one just wants to cup, tell her everything is going to be OK. Very lovely, very sad.
    Filmed in Waco. B+ Sports an ending that will leave you stunned, near tears.


    Just now finished Joker. Still reeling from the total awesomeness of the viewing. Best film I have watched in quite a while. A
    Thanks to all you cats for recommending this bad boy.

    Another must watch are the Department Q series. I believe there are three, all terrific, but the second one will blow you away.
    I admit to weeping at the end. "Carl " and "Assad ", two of the best partners ever created. Superb. Just when you think "Conspiracy Of Faith" cannot get an more intense the writers ratchet it up, then up more, then more until you're leaning forward, molars gritting, uncontrollable " FUCK !"s waking the wife up. Guys across the pond ? I believe BBC Four carried these. Highly recommended. I do not stream much but I do believe you can stream these from the usual suspects.
    ( Warning to members who have children--do not watch the second installment. It is brutal and horrifying and you will kick my ass. )

    Another one to check out:Hounds Of Love. I am around halfway through so no grade but it is very very good.

    Yup, that’s it. It was a short film first, I believe. I really liked this one. It’s really hard to talk about without spoiling but I hope you enjoy it.

    On Monday, the wife and I went to a free preview of 1917 (which technically doesn't open until Christmas Day in limited release.)

    Not technically based on a true story, it is based on stories that Sam Mendes's grandfather told him.

    I'm not a reviewer by any means, but I really liked this one. I really loved however they made it appear to be two separate continuous takes. Even my wife commented on it and she's not normally one to notice the technical stuff happening in films.


    We also watched on Hulu two films I heard about this year but never got to the theater to see - Fast Color, and Booksmart. Thoroughly enjoyed both and recommend them to anyone looking for, in the case of Fast Color, a very non-traditional super hero story, and for Booksmart, just some clever and fun 90 minutes.

    Next up will be The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi on the 24th before our 8am showing of Rise of Skywalker. Speaking of Star Wars, I'm currently in the middle of reading Brian Jay Jones's George Lucas biography. Not learning a lot of new things, it's still a really interesting read especially with the politicing Lucas went through personally and professionally trying to get Star Wars made.

    I saw Rise of Skywalker last night. I really enjoyed it. It was an appropriate ending to this trilogy and the "Skywalker Saga" as a whole. I will say though that if you're someone who didn't like 7 and 8 very much that you probably won't like 9 either. Though it does resolve some the problems people had with 8. As always when I left the theater I can't wait for more Star Wars, whatever that happens to be.

    Sock-a bye baby ! One what fun it was to ride ! How did you stumble across that fun little ditty, anyway. At the start I was all Oh, Socky Socky, no no no....then I tooled along, went Oh no WONER ! Wonky, funny-as-hell, full of nifty ( NIFTY ?!?!) little surprises. Thanks, man.

    Ok guys, here is one, may be terrific. I have not viewed in yet, sorry 'bout day. However, it is helmed by Richard Shepard who directed Jude Law's brutally brilliant must-see performance in Dom Hemingway Got a tad over-the-top acting-wise,
    spittle-a slingin'--
    ---but I would still grade it an A-

    Fim in question: The Perfection

    IMDB/trailer:

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7772580/

    Another one needs watching, fellas: In Order of Disappearance (2014)
    B++
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2675914/

    Watched ( after slipping The Yell Machine shut-up pills crushed into her ice-cream) the gem The Limey as it's been years with only one viewing under my chubby belly. Highly recommended ! Stamp is unreal. The heave ho off the swimming pool railing is a classic scene,one that makes you chuckle...
    ...then go That wasn't every nice. As far as revenge films nothing ( thinking right offhand) will beat The Horseman ( A+) but The Limey, though some will think moves too slow, be hot on it's heels imho. A-

    Started watching Hell House LLC ( fuckever LLC stands for), remembered I had seen this shocker, creepfest of a MOTHERfucker film before. Best to watch on PC when you can pausepausepause, see how close the "puppets" are getting before you fill you Nike's with the brown stuff. Outstanding film. Up there with The Houses October Built

    Lesse. Rewinding my dain...

    Adam Sandler in Uncut Gems. Wow. Brilliant Work.

    Leaving D.C. Odd little mother grabber. Silent, eerie, boring yet left me pondering it for an hour or so.
    C+

    Reminded me a smidgen of the scary- as -hell Dawning. A- for the latter. Highly recommended and I'd be curious if a viewer really really got how the director/editor pulled this off, manipulated his viewers simply with words spoken but not seen uttered, ratcheted up with the family's own issues, alcoholism, few other problems then spinning it into a free-for-all tale that is incredibly chilling. Proves less seen the better.

    Then you get/need to check out a chess based, mental illness plotted film ( one of my top ten films of all time and if I repeat myself a lot--sorrrrry !) called THE DARK HORSE and I , right off,understood a viewer must always look into mirrors when watching; when our spun out hero is near one and see, there I went, repeating my dementia riddled ass. I think I have told you guys this already ! SHIT !

    OK, time's up.

    Thanks for listening.
