    The gynecologist visit ( " First time ? Don't worry, I won't bite" to severed fingers, he, pointing between her legs, holding a gushing blood hand missing fingers shouting VAGINA DENTATA ! VAGINA DENTATA !) yeah, right there, with that film (2006) I became a Jessica Weixler fan.
    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.
