My Best Friend Is A Vampire. 1988. 8/10. Very silly movie and a fun romp.

very underrated 80s movie.
I disavow anyone in the movement involved in any illegal,unethical, sexist, or racist behavior. However, I don't have the energy or time to investigate each person and case, and a lack of individual disavowals for each incident should not be construed as condoning such behavior.

Sssssss (1973) 6/10. Back in the day when they used to make movies for drive-ins. Well, two kinds of movies got made for drive-ins: horror double features and soft cord porn men would go watch alone. Interesting stars, like the boss of the Cool Hand Luke chain gang and the guy who played the original Starbuck. Plus one of the actors who played a Van Trap daughter in Sound of Music. Boy meets girl, girl's mad scientist father turns him into a snake. The end. Some cool make up effects and lots of real live snakes, pre CGI.

Saw that one at the mess hall, Balbao Naval Hospital, San Diego. You can imagine how 50-60 sailors handled it.  >:D

John Wick 2 (6/10) watchable but forced story. I like how the good guy is the only one aiming for the head.

If they made 5 more John Wick movies i'd watch them all just as long as John Abruzzi finds a different way each time of telling you just how monumentally f****ed you are for looking at John Wick's dog in an improper manner. Also mopey/strong/silent Keanu is great. No real acting required, which suits him.

Le tout nouveau testament (2015): God's daughter is fed up with his bad demeanor and mean-spiritedness and decides to follow her brother's example and find some apostles and write a "totally new testament". Wonderfully sacriligious, but steers clear of being insulting to moderate believers (or so I would imagine, anyway). 9/10

I was waiting for Lawrence Fishburne to call him the one.

The Finest Hours 9.5/10
Yes, I really rate it that highly. It is based on a true story and from my research, at least the skeleton of the story is true. It is about a rescue of the crew of a tanker by a small coast guard vessel in 1952. They braved an incredible storm in a 36 ft boat with less horsepower than my car.

47 Meters Down (2017): Shark movie. Pretty meh. The voice over work is crummy, but the dialogue is the worst part. It's ridiculously obvious and repetitive (e.g.: she looks at a spear gun and says to herself "hey, there's a spear gun", and they keep repeating lines about getting the bends and running out of oxygen). Also, I sometimes feel modern movies change shots too rapidly, but we really don't need a 5 second lingering shot of a barometer to get that she has low oxygen. I didn't feel that much tension compared to similar movies. I give it 5+/10

EDIT:

2:22 (2017): OK, so I'm only 10 minutes in, but the phrase "astrological experts have not seen such intense activity..." was just uttered about a supernova (which was referred to as a nova earlier on during the movie) reported on Channel 4 News. Given the opening dialogue of the movie, that is probably not an innocent mistake. I cannot now continue watching the rest of the movie as my eyes have rolled all the way to the back of my head.

EDIT 2: OK, I decided to watch the rest of it, mostly because I have a little thing for Theresa Palmer. It's actually not bad if you can get over the ridiculous quasi-astrology angle. I decided to watch it as a story about a man on the verge of a psychotic episode suffering from excessive apophenia, mild hallucinations and confirmation bias, and it actually works really well for most of the movie, right up until the end. It was visually and stylistically easy on the eyes, and it had a memorable scene or two, like the one featuring an aerial ballet. Some parts are still kind of silly, but then if I can enjoy movies about magic and demons and witches why not one about astrology (or psychosis)? I give it a 7-/10.

Silence 7/10. Underneath the torture porn is some interesting arguments back and forth. The Japanese weren't just torture fanatics. They didn't want to become the bitch of 4 competing Christian nations. Examines the question "where the actual fuck is god in all this shit?" Punts the ending.
