Every Film You've Watched in 2018

Recommended Posts

Venom: I said on social media that it's basically a late 90s/early 00s action/horror/sci-fi film a la FAUST LOVE OF THE DAMNED or GUYVER with a nine figure budget. Your mileage may vary. Hardy gives a delightfully Nic Cage-esque performance. Michelle Williams, who I've liked in basically everything I've seen of her, did not appear to want to be in this movie or understand what this movie was in any way. Really radically differing qualities of performances all around. CGI fuckfest. Fun car chase. As entertaining as any Marvel/DC movie I've seen in the past few years. Shocking casting in the first post-credits sequence. The second post-credit sequence made me and my kids want to see that new animated Spider-man thing.

Bang Bang Baby: review forthcoming. Guess I forgot to add this a couple days ago.

Warcraft: a perfectly good fantasy film. Great effects, like next level beautiful and a serviceable story. Surprised it didn't hit bigger. It's as good or better than all of the Tolkien adaptationsJackson did.

A Star is Born: Absolutely phenomenal. Everyone knows I was going to gush about Gaga so yeah, she deserves every award she gets from the film. Bradley Cooper's performance is just as nuanced and his direction excels throughout the film. No, this is just so very good. I cried at the end.

Halloween: This year's Horror series I'm checking out for October is the Halloween series. The first film in the series is a great start with some solid horror moments.

Halloween 2: Setting the second film in a hospital makes for a nice difference from the original. You get more of Michael being an invincible monster which does feel some tinges of boredom in there but there's still some decent horror going on.

This is a few weeks out of date, but I re-watched Spotlight. Somewhere on this website I may have posted a ho-hum review because I watched it on a plane. This time'round, I had a way more engaged viewing experience. What more can be said about an Oscar Award-Winning film? The acting is professional, the directing (save for some slightly pretentious behind-the-head-follow-shots) is slick, the writing is taught. I appreciate that it was an adult, "R" rated film that didn't need to justify its content rating beyond the dark subject matter. People aren't swearing left and right or anything. It's just straight business.

"Oscar Award winning" and "great movie" are not mutually exclusive  - the easiest example being Braveheart.

But if Spotlight is good, then fair play to it.

Beyond the Mat: watched this again because the episode of Bruce Prichard's podcast that I've caught up to is basically a commentary on it. It's a disjointed but powerful film. It's funny now that I'm watching it when the first time I dialled in hard to Jake the Snake, but this time I really dialled in to Mick Foley. Prichard's got  great story about Foley coming into the back after the Hell in a Cell match apologizing for forgetting to do the thumbtack stunt when he was completely covered in thumbtacks. That poor man. I hope he lives a long and healthy life.

Halloween 3: Season of the Witch: It's almost a shame that this has the Halloween name because it's always going to be unfairly hated because it doesn't have Michael Meyers. It works so well on it's own.

Scream 2: I say a bit about it in a future episode of the show but damn good.

The Craft: I'm up and down on this movie. One year, I don't care about it. Another year, I love it. It all depends on my mood I guess.

It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World: It's a three hour long comedy. It works.

Suspiria: I felt like watching all of Dario Argento's Three Mothers since I hadn't seen any of them. Its great. Moody, atmospheric, and gory at the right times. Definitely the best of the three.

Inferno: I'm torn here. It's great to look at and has some weird scenes BUT the plot never seems to happen. The music is also all over the place with moments I love and moments that are iffy at best.

Mother of Tears: Came out 15 plus years after the previous movie and it shows. It lacks the interesting visuals of the original and goes in favor of shock and torture porn. It definitely feels like it decided to do too much with too little.

My Dead Dad's Porno Tapes: this is a short doc about a man's relationship within distant father. It hits pretty hard for me, but it's light and very well put together. Find it on vimeo or embedded here.

The Wicker Man: Yes, the remake. And man, someone tried to make a 'me' film, got like 60% of the way there, then stumbled /hard/. Granted, I still wanna watch this with some friends every few years.

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Meyers: It's not bad but damn if it doesn't suck to be Jamie.

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Meyers: Yeah, part 5 is a good place for the series to jump the rail. Like, I know the man in black goes somewhere I hate where it goes so, no, doesn't redeem this at all.

Merlin's Shop of Mystic Wonders: Not the best episode of MST3k but still one of the most memorable.

Coraline: I love Claymation.

Psycho: Still a classic for a reason.

Scream 3: I have words. They'll be said eventually.

Scream 4: Disappointing but far from the worst horror movie of the last ten years.

Double, Double, Toil and Trouble: It's a Made-For-TV Olsen Twins movie from the 90s with Cloris Leachman devouring the scenery. It's weird.

Chopping Mall: 80s Horror Movie about horny teenagers getting locked in a mall with killer robots. It's such a B-Movie that you can't help but love it.

The Lost Boys: The fact that this film is still talked about in Queer Film circles kinda says it all. A decent vampire movie.

The WNUF Halloween Special: Retro throwback horror film I've seen multiple times and always find interesting.

Livescream: feature for the festival

Terrifier: lighting the indie horror world on fire, but containing at least 5 tropes I never want to see again in a slasher film. There's literally not a single redeeming thing about this movie to me. MAYBE the restaurant scene (y'know, before the killing) but the victims' acting is brutal.

Halloween (2018): Probably the best in the franchise. 

Films Watched: 67

Notwithstanding the Flickchart Forum, I'd put it at #2 between the original and H20. Does everything you could want, there's 3 final girls of sorts and tips it's hat to pretty much all the previous instalments (including Halloween 3). It isn't flawless - there are tonal issues - and it wears its sequel status on its sleeve, but it was a great cinematic experience.

My Scientology Movie: I hold Louis Theroux to the same tier as Jon Ronson. They are both very similar in approach. This was terrifyingly nutty. Everyone in it. Absolutely everyone.
