After the new Logan trailer, which was excellent, I have a few thoughts going on right now. I think Logan is now my most anticipated movie of the the year (which is weird since it comes out so early in the year). Where does this leave the X-Men franchise if Wolverine does die or if he doesn't? Do they do a total reboot with leaving out the character for awhile? Or do they continue with X-23 taking the Wolverine mantel? Or do they eventually recast Logan and eventually all of the roles? Do they do a sequel, pseudo-reboot continuing what was built on from Apocalypse but with replacement cast members? Or bring in different characters? It'll be interesting to see where the X-Men franchise is taken as whole, especially thinking about how important Hugh Jackman has been to it all. They also better get this fucking right! Origins was abysmal and The Wolverine was good but heavily flawed. This movie better be Wolverine's swan song. Jackman deserves to have this movie be his Unforgiven.

I'm not even 15 minutes in to Jesus Camp and I'm scared shitless.

Yea, it seriously disturbed the shit of me. Even 11 years after it was made. I think what really got me is just how much these kids are being programmed. The minister that heads the camp all but admitted she is brainwashing these kids. I think what really set the tone for the entire film is early on when she's speaking and she said that she hoped all the kids would lay their life down for God. The girl Rachel when she spoke it sounded almost automated, like it had been mashed into her head. The only thing that stops these kids from being completely radicalized is lack of Ak-47s and bomb vests. I don't try to influence or impose my beliefs (or lack thereof) on people so for this a very bad thing that has happened in this country. I knew about the evangelical movement before hand, I guess it never really occurred to me the levels taken. The fact there is a sizable amount of people who actively try to bend a country that is fundamentally on being multi-cultural and multi-religion to their will is completely disturbing.

A few weeks back I was going to the UPS Store and I see a guy with the most epic mullet I think I've ever seen. It was beyond shoulder length and curly. Honestly I can't even begin to describe the epic-ness I beheld. Funny thing is I was telling my sister-in-law about it as we going to the grocery in the same shopping center. No bullshit I saw the same guy, that mullet is just something you wouldn't forget. Although of course that's the shit I remember. I can't remember order of operations or important dates but I can remember shit like Epic Mullet Guy.

The Incredibles 2 might require better screenwriting than a Cars or Pirates movie. Therefore, it might take more time and care to write well. However, the House of Mouse should still give Incredibles fans a follow-up while we're young. Disney should especially get on the project since the Micky-Mouse company refuses to promote Fantastic Four stuff. Underneath, the Incredibles are the Fantastic Four.

I'm watching Dawn of the Planet of the Apes for the first time since it's theatrical release. While I did really like it when I first saw it I thought it was slightly overrated but not quite halfway the way though I'm definitely changing my mind about it. As I was watching it the first time I remember thinking the Ceasar/Koba portion was a retread of the Rick/Shane drama in season 2 of Walking Dead. Re-watching the movie it's occurred to me just how character-driven the movie actually is, very different than most summer blockbusters. I really do wish Jason Clarke and Keri Russell were returning for the next movie but I'm not sure if it would actually work.

The Planet of the Apes films are always rich allegory. There is ever fodder for analysis.

Certainly, the characterization exceeds much summer fare, and it offers something complex to examine.

I tried to watch Beasts of the Southern Wild the other day (it's one that I hadn't gotten around to) and couldn't get into it. It seems like there's an obvious Gilliam influence in the movie which kind of makes me feel like I need to give the movie another shot being a huge Gilliam fan. What really threw me off is the narration in the beginning. I felt like the little girl was yelling into the microphone and it gave me some sensory overload. That's not really a good feeling to have with a movie right at the start. I may decide if my mindset changes in a few days to try to give it another shot.
Frosty_86 updated his STATUS: 13 days ago

Damn it's eight months since my last review. My last group of them got a little long, it required a lot of time and think that's why I haven't like doing a review in awhile. I definitely need to change that, now just to figure out which one I actually want to write on.

2017 Movie Journal Entry #1

I'm getting the New Year started on the right foot

The Magnificent Seven (2016)- First viewing. I fucking loved this remake of the 1960 classic (which is one of my favorites). I personally felt it it seems more of an addition to the franchise as oppose to a straight up remake. They change some of the storyline enough to where it does not feel like a direct remake, although the spirit does remain the same. The cast is a blast, really my biggest problem with the movie is that I could have stayed with these people a little longer. The action sequences are excellent, Antoine Fuqua has been hit or miss for me but this won he definitely hits. Over the past few years there has been some major strides in the western genre with some independent westerns taking a more revisionist approach to the genre but it was awesome to see an an adventure western on the big screen. 9/10

Swiss Army Man- First viewing. This one I actually watched a few weeks back and forgot to include it in my blog. This unique, oddball-fun little movie is sure to make my final top 10 list of 2016. I am not really sure how to explain it all though. Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe were great onscreen together, Radcliffe has what will go down as one of the most unique performances of all-time. It is oddball and off-kilter but there is a tremendous heart to all of its oddness. 9/10

Duel at Diablo- First viewing. This James Garner and Sydney Poitier starrer had just a little but too much going on in the beginning. There were too many characters thrown in all at once, it was really hard to get invested in any of the characters because it seems like all the movie was doing was jumping from character to character for about 40 minutes before it settled down but by then it started the main action. Most westerns give you time to get invested in the characters, I guess that's the reason for the sort-of slow burn approach a lot westerns take but it was really hard to get to enjoy any of these characters. I think this was a wasted opportunity of bringing the two actors together, there were times both of them seemed like after thoughts even though they were supposed to be the main stars. 3/10

In A Valley of Violence- First viewing. I am still not a fan of the title but highly dug this little western with Ethan Hawke and John Travolta. Ti West's first attempt at the western genre was a little different than expected. It had a pretty brutal finale laced with some really odd humor. At times it works as a homage piece to spaghetti westerns but it ultimately works on its own because of its quirky characters and some of the brutality staged. Hawke does a great job of playing the drifter archetype but gives him more humanity than the mythic figure the genre is known for. Travolta actually gives a good performance, something that I can say he has not done now for quite awhile. 8/10

Blood Moon- First viewing. This was one that I watched just kind of shits and giggles. I figured at the very least it would be a cheesy b-movie. It's a western with werewolves. This movie seems like it was written by someone who as an affinity for the western genre because it basically has every cliche character you can think of that genre is responsible for. However, none of the characters really ever do work, even in a homage fashion. Maybe with a little bit more time the characters could have worked. The movie is very low budget. The werewolf effects actually do halfway work, there are some good blood and guts sequences. The biggest enemy of this movie is time and budget. The finale feels like its just another random attack sequence. There are obvious ideas that were started but never came into fruition. 4/10

The Long Riders- First viewing. This Walter Hill directed western features the Carradine brothers as the Younger brothers, the Quaid brothers as the Miller brothers, the Keach brothers as James brothers, and the Guest brothers as the Ford brothers. This one is very much an action movie about the exploits of the Younger-James Gang (or James-Younger Gang). The ensemble here is pretty strong, my favorite moments are when the Carradines (especially David and Keith) are onscreen. The Quaid and Guest brothers do not get as much to do, Randy gets more to do then Dennis and the Guest brothers give a very creepy aura only popping up sporadically during the film. The weak link in the cast is James Keach as Jesse James, I do not think he is the charismatic actor that the role really requires. I really enjoyed Stacy as Frank James. This movie obviously is not very accurate and there were times where I could tell something was cut to shave off time for more action sequences. However, what Hill does is make a very effective-voilent action western about a gang of outlaws facing their last days. 7/10

Quigley Down Under- Re-watch. I had seen this one a long time ago, it always stuck out in my mind as a really good adventure western but it was even better than I remembered. I definitely need to go back revise my list of favorite westerns to make damn sure this one is included. Tom Selleck stars in one of his few big screen westerns (most of them were made-for TV, although there are some good ones there) as an American sharpshooter who goes to Australia. Alan Rickman plays a brutal land baron. Rickman while yes he was cast as the villain again gives a very different performance than his flamboyant Sheriff of Nottingham or his clever-plotting Hans Gruber. It has a sense of high-spirited adventure which calls back to early westerns but has a certain intensity that is closer to the likes of Tombstone and Eastwood westerns. 9/10

I'm going to try to start a running tally of first time watches for the year and see how many first watches I actually have this year.
New watches for 2017: 5 (since Swiss Army Man was technically a 2016 watch for me)

Ti West directed In a Valley of Violence, eh? I should have known that. Your review makes the movie sound rather good as well. I should perhaps see the western.

I'm kind of geeking out right now over the mass amount of westerns on Amazon Prime. There's a some I've seen but haven't watched in a longtime or just don't own, and then there's some I've never seen. I'm a very happy guy right now.

Frosty_86 updated his STATUS: 19 days ago

The Magnificent Seven (2016) is less of a remake than it is an extension of the 1960 franchise. It was a fantastic old-school western adventure which carried the sprit of the original. The story was similar but different enough to where it did not feel like a direct remake. I make my love westerns pretty well-known and I can definitely say this movie proves the western genre is not dead. It is alive and well, as long as filmmakers and studios are willing to show the care the genre deserves. The cast was great, all of them had fantastic chemistry together. I was very impressed by Haley Bennett. My only true issue is that honestly I could have stayed with these characters a little longer. 9/10

2016 Movie Journal- #20

The Neon Demon- First viewing. For me Nicolas Winding Refn is a difficult director. Drive and Bronson are among my favorite movies (which are arguably his most accessible) but I loathed Only God Forgives. I actually seen have only seen four his movies including Neon Demon. While I was watching it and getting a headache from the blaring sound effects and the Lynchian vibe I came to the conclusion he is just one of those directors that I have to be in a certain mood to watch his movies and I may have just not been in the correct mindset here. This movie for me was a lot of style over substance. I was never really particularly compelled by any of the characters, the actresses I feel are very brave here but there was not much there in terms of characterization. I give the young women here props for pushing themselves I just felt like there was a lot missing in the narrative for it to be considered a good movie. 3/10

The Town That Dreaded Sundown ('14) First viewing. This was a remake I highly enjoyed. I think what worked for me was the subtle references to the original without placating on nostalgia for the classic. At least I think so, I could be wrong considering only saw the original a few days before I watched this. They were still able to shroud the Moonlight killer in mystery and give him an ominous presence that is missed in so many slasher follow-ups. It works as a remake and pseudo-sequel. 7/10

The Blob (Original)- First viewing. The original Blob features a pre-fame Steve McQueen as an unlikely teenage hero. Many of the these classics (especially of the horro and sci-fi) get hyped up and just don't work for me. This one did. I can see why people enjoyed this one and were even quite terrified (also doesn't hurt with the whole Red-Scare thing) of it. 7/10

The Blob (Remake)- First viewing. As much as I did enjoy the original film, I actually enjoyed this 80s-gore update more. I think it did a great job of bringing the characters and the concept in to the era. It definitely had some 80s cheese but the gore effects are excellent. It even kind of has that same Red Scare-fear of outsiders thing that made the original work. I highly enjoyed Kevin Dillon and Shawnee Smith's performances, great genre work there. 8/10

Pumpkinhead- As I am going back through movies that I have watched over the past few months I did miss quite a few. A lot were repeated viewings, especially for my Fall Horror Movie Fest. A lot of them I had written about before so I have not included them in the blogs. I know I have never written about Stan Winston's directorial debut. I watched this movie twice in the same amount days. I had watched this quite a few years back, it had always stuck with me. This movie has a lot going for it; it has a strong backstory, a great horror-revenge setup, strong characters, and quite heartbreaking. It is a twisted fairy tale of sorts. Lance Henriksen gives a fantastic performance. It is definitely one of the most underrated horror movies. 8/10

2000 Maniacs- First viewing. This movie kind of bored me. I guess I have gotten spoiled with modern day gore effects. This movie was made in the 60s, which I guess has a lot to do with it. I just had a hard time getting in to it. I kind of forgot watched it after I saw it. 2/10

2001 Maniacs- First viewing. I have to say I enjoyed this campy homage/remake to the forgettable original. Robert Englund reveals in the campiness. There are some pretty cool blood/gore effects. It is an insanely stupid movie but I could see it becoming a guilty pleasure/turn your brain off kind of movie for me. 6/10

Vertigo- First viewing. This is by far my least favorite Hitchcock film. I honestly just can not articulate how much I disliked this one, a lot of it had to do with Jimmy Stewert. It is a very different character for him to have played, I am never going to knock an actor for playing against type but his character sucked. He from being an unlikable weeny to creepy as hell, and he was supposed to be the good guy. I can understand why this registered with people but I can truthfully say this is just one of Hitchcock's that has not held up well. 2/10

Laid to Rest First viewing. This movie was a pretty empty experience. It had some cool gore effects (actually really fucking cool) but there was just something that never really worked for me. Which was disappointing considering it has Kevin Gage and Lena Headey. This was another of those I got a headache watching it: the shaky cam, the bad acting from the main character (it was bad enough to venture into camp but I do not know that the intention), and the overall presentation did not do much for me. 4/10

Chromeskull: Laid to Rest 2- First viewing. Really what I say about the first film I could say about the second as well. There is a sense that these movies wanted to go camp but then also wanted to go dark and harsher. This definitely pushes the ridiculous button with the idea of corporate serial killer and of course the casting of Brian Austin Green. I feel like these movies were wasted potential of a killer who has a great look and begs to be up there with the all-time great movie maniacs. 4/10

Wolf Creek- First viewing. This is one of those horror movies that honestly I liked but I do not know how eager I am to see it again. Much like Eden Lake. This movie is very well done, very strong characterizations. Very likable characters in a slow burn type of film where the shit does not hit the fan until the third act. Mother fucker is this one depressing; like to point where I kind of felt the pain, anguish, fear, and desperation of the characters. It is definitely not a pleasant experience. 7/10

Altered States- First viewing. I am pretty sure I missed this one when I was looking back at my blogs. I really fucking enjoyed this heady film with William Hurt. It is a fantasy, sc-fi, horror that feels very Cronenbergian. Hurt does excellent work. It is a very interesting picture that I do not think is entirely successful in all of its themes it was exploring but what it does succeed in it does very well. 8/10

Cube First viewing. Cube is the kind of movie that just fits very well into its era. It was a sort-of high concept thriller that I think probably could only work in the 90s. It has likable characters in a desperate life or death situation. It has a nice little plot twist involving one of the characters which I really appreciated. Some of the effects do not hold up, early CG type-stuff but the concept here is still very well executed. 7/10

If it wasn't for those top notch gore effects and look of the killer, Laid to Rest would be one of the worst slasher movies ever.
