Do you know what 'majority' means?


You really aren't the sharpest tool in the shed are you, in the training game we would refer to you as a "slow learner" :roll:

The Exorcist
The original Dead Trilogy
Evil Dead 2
Frankenstein
Bride of Frankenstein
A butt load of Amicus movies

You getting it yet, or are you going to continue being a blowhard making sweeping comments you previously read on the interwebs rather than actually thinking for yourself.

Bit of trivia for ya, over 48 horror movies released in the first three months of 2018, clearly you have seen most of em because you know your Eddy the expert and all.


Haha, just saw this little hissy fit.

Firstly, you've mistakenly thought I'm running down horror as a genre. I'm not, I'm saying that the majority of it is probably shit in the way that the majority of everything is generally shit. You list some classic horror as evidence, but there were undoubtedly loads of other cheapo horror films that came out that year that were shit. As were loads of action films, loads of comedys etc.

All I said was the majority of everything is shit and horror has tended to rely on jump scares and gore in general - obviously not every horror film is shit and obviously they don't all have jump scares and gore. Calm down, no one is bagging your favourite genre - I was actually defending it you dick.


Actually, I'm bagging it...it's a shit genre.

Watched a couple of films recommended of here last weekend:

Incendies -stunning 10/10. Didn't even know it was the Arrival guy till I read it here.

Gook -9/10 brilliant as well although I may be of an age and appreciate it more.

Generous giving it a 3. It's awful. If that was a first time director and not the darling Edgar Wright, it would have been universally slated.


Yeah, you're probably right about the director. 2 of the 3 points are for Lily James, the other point is for the way he killed Jamie Fox. It was massively disappointing that Baby didn't meet a violent end. I think the only character I didn't want to die was the old deaf guy.

Watched Thor Ragnarok the other day after reading the rave reviews and also having no clue what was happening there in Infinity War. Pretty enjoyable it must be said, very funny in parts and a bit less earnest and self-important than The Dark World which was utter shite.

That's the last super hero movie for me for a while though.

You can't really argue that the majority of horror films are shite
Every second new movie on the torrent sites are horror films and they are mostly garbage

I'm actually interested in seeing Deadpool 2 to be honest.

aye, its also the easiest Genre to make, horror i.e so every tom, dick and harry with a camera can make a horror movie for less than $200 but that doesn't mean people call the whole genre shit because they saw some low budget shit ..i don't watch low budget horror movies, most turn out to be slasher films which i honestly despise..we prefer poltergeist, paranormal activity and exorcist type films, not SAW, Hotel or the texas chainsaw type shitty movies..they should really create a new category for those shitty films..... the last low budget "horror" movie i saw was A MONSTER PROJECT and it was 10 times greater than all the slasher films combined.. and yet it won't still make my top10 horror movies list ..

Don't you dare knock Cinema 6 Suva! :x :lol: Fond memories...

If you thought the surrounding area was scary, imagine walking back through there to the City Private hotel on Robertson Road in the early hours of the morning after Flagg got me very, very drunk... In hindsight not the cleverest idea but no hassle, no bother and nothing but friendly people. Man I miss Fiji...

Watched "The death of Stalin" on the weekend, f**king brilliant.

Jason Isaacs was brillant as Marshall Zhukov. Best character in the film.

What's the soundtrack like? Josh Homme and Troy van Leeuwen did it. Not sure how they got attached to the project, but QOTSA did have a song years back called "In the Fade" which doesn't feature in the film.

I thought I recognised QOTSA playing in the background. Other than 1 song in a grocery store I can't say the soundtrack stood out much.

didn't think it looked too bad to me - is it canon then, or a straight remake, as the premise seems to be a follow on not a remake ?

Really? I thought it was a decent, if predictable sci Fi that didn't live up to the hype.

So I watched Legend.
A dreadfully uneven movie, particularly towards the last third. Hardy's good, but not doing anything outside of his comfort zone with either role.

The film has nothing incisive to say about gangster lifestyle, and is really very paint by numbers once you get over the twin gimmick. Though, again, the final third is hamfisted and crass.

Then again, it's always fun watching Tom Hardy be shouty and it's not that boring of a film.

As with ex machina, I thought it was too derivative.
Most sci Fi retrods the same themes, but the two mentioned movies don't do anything that remarkable with them.

He's still got it, really enjoyed the nice guys.
That trailer looks so Marvel-y and sanitised though.

Any idea of what the age cert is?

Yeah I'd agree. I'm a real sucker for sci fi though , find I can happily consume the same themes in different formats

Have you seen Primer? One of my favourite films. Really thought provoking sci fi.

Would you stop. Ex machina is excellent. Great performances. One of the best I've seen in years. Love that stone cold ending.

Annihilation could have done with a bit more ambiguity in the ending.

Spoiler: show
I'm being reductive, but the ending of Ex Machina was a play on open the pod bay doors HAL, it was also pretty apparent it was going to happen. A good sci-fi, but no 10/10

No, I'll have to check it out.
I go into Sci-Fi movies expecting them to riff on familiar themes, but Ex Machina and Annihilation didn't do enough with the stories they told for me to be blown away.

Watched the trailers, doesn't look like it will be.
There's a "Save the Daughter" plot there that just seems poor enough.

Also, no Deakins or Villeneuve is a big deal.

Spoiler: show
That tunnel scene and its entire night vision run up was so intense.
Almost otherworldly the way it was shot.
The ending was brutal.

I'm going to go all Floppykid and KidA on this one - Sicario is hugely overrated.

Good film, but not the masterpiece it's claimed to be.
