I've lost faith in Rotten Tomatoes. Actually that may be too strong. I should say I no longer trust it. There are too many movies (especially blockbusters) that got positive reviews that shouldn't. I guess a lot of them got sold out to advertising money.

rotten tomatoes. When you know who the actual people making these reviews are everything falls into place..

Saw in theatre, I think I had a few adult beverages beforehand. It's what I expected. If you suspend belief (or actually believe) then it's a campy 2 hours you'll enjoy watching.

It wasn't anything special....but decent enough to pass time if you have nothing else to watch.

A lot of problem I have with all these new movies with tons of special affects is none of them have any suspense. You don't sense any real danger. It's like watching a video game. Bunch of people get killed but you don't feel anything. Most of the time movies like Avengers are kind of meh. The first Iron Man was pretty good. The second one not too bad. The third one was forgettable. The first Avengers was cool for its novelty. I guess it counts for something. After that, it's mostly taken over by special affects with very little humanity. Likewise, the first Thor was good and it all went down hill from there.

Most of the suspense I got is from my real life lols.

MIB was good and entertaining. I like the entire cast so that helps.

IT Chapter 2 was not as good as the first but still definitely worth watching. It had some creepy AF moments for sure.

So last weekend, the other-half wasn't feeling well and I was resigned to the couch. So I got to watch a lot of old and newer horror stuff that she already told me she wouldn't watch.

I got all these in:

Last house on the left
The Belko Experiment
House of a 1000 Corpses
The Devil's Rejects

It was a good weekend!

I remember ads for The Belko Experiment and was interested in seeing it whenever it was free. But I haven’t seen it come up anywhere yet. I’ll have to check Amazon Prime, Netflix and DirecTV.

So robert Forester died the same day El Camino came out? It's a small world. I thought El Camino was real good. Especially the gun fight.

I thought the movie was a bit disappointing from the aspect of there was no "surprise"; nothing that popped up which was completely unexpected. It really seemed overly cautious with the story. And the flashbacks with Todd were tiresome considering he was not really a major character.

Here’s what NOT to watch: “In the Tall Grass” on Netflix. This adaptation of Stephen King’s novella is an hour-and-half of utter nonsense; I expected much better.

Don’t waste your time with this one.

Agreed, I was pretty disappointed with El Camino as well. I excepted more.

On another note, watched the new Netflix movie Fractured over the weekend. I enjoyed it. Very suspenseful

Candidly, your time is better spent doing, or watching, something - anything else.

I was sorely disappointed.

Crazy theory. Hitler never died but escaped to Patagonia, Argentina. The TopGear crews did an episode there. Crazy coincidence. Nice popcorn movie.
