MonthWatch - October 2012.

[I'm going to keep a monthly tally of the movies I've both watched for the first time and as re-watches. I think it'll be interesting to see what all I've watched at the end of the year and how many. That being said, let's do it. Here's the next month.]


Seven Psychopaths - I absolutely loved it!
Paranormal Activity 4 - This was crap. Good lead characters, though.
Silent Hill: Revelation - Even bigger crap. Such a disappointing follow-up.


Chronicles of Riddick: Pitch Black - Had a Riddick marathon with friends. I heart this movie.
Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury - Ditto. And this one's story is good, but I don't care for the animation.
Chronicles of Riddick - Ditto. And this one grows on me. He has some great lines/moments in this, despite the story being a bit convoluted.
Resident Evil: Afterlife - What can I say? I kinda dig it.
Gymkata - Showed some friends. They hated me for it.
The Raid: Redemption - Showed the same friends right after. They loved it even more due to the comparison factor.
Little Shop of Horrors (Director's Cut) - Favorite Film of All Time... and the original ending is nuts fully completed!
Saw VI - The best of the sequels, in my opinion.
Aliens - The best of the sequels, in my  (and/or everyone's) opinion.
Trick R Treat - Halloween tradition!

Shark Night - Yeah, it was crap.
The Invisible Man (1933) - For 50/50. It... was eh. Great effects, though.
The Hole - The Joe Dante flick. It was alright, though kind of a rip-off of The Gate.
Ghidorah: The Three-Headed Monster - For MILF. Campy fun.
Hellraiser - I actually really liked it, much more than I thought I would.
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - Same for this one, strangely. I really liked the characters.
Bait - This was just ridiculous garbage. It had potential to be like Snakes on a Plane, but failed miserably.
Friday the 13th - Part 3 - For 50/50. It was... OK.
Hellbound: Hellraiser II - I liked this one, too. Not as much as the first, but it was still good.
Rock of Ages - For MILF. Bordering on my least favorite film of the year thus far. Tom Cruise's performance is helping it stay barely afloat.
Rockula - For a future Lair episode. I thought it was bizarre, campy fun, but not enough to warrant another watch.
Creepshow - Don't shoot me, but I only thought it was alright. I didn't dislike it, but it didn't hook me in, really.
Abre Los Ojos (Open Your Eyes) - For 50/50. I really liked it.
Murder Party - Holy CRAP this movie was insane. It's like kinda dull yet really strange first hour... and then off-the-walls third act.
Quick - A campy Korean version of Speed mixed with something like Torque or Premium Rush. It was alright.
Funny Games - For MILF. The original version. I liked it better than the remake, anyway.
Moonrise Kingdom - You know what? I kinda liked it. Though I really disliked the main boy.
A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master - Just because. It was alright.
Watership Down - For 50/50. Totally bizarre and trippy version of The Odyseey... with bunnies.
A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge - It doesn't fit in with the rest of the films, but... I liked it.
BloodRayne: The Third Reich - For V.G. Movie article. Terrible, as expected.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter - Again... I kinda liked it.
Seeking a Friend For the End of the World - Much more melancholy than I expected, but it was enjoyable.
Magic Mike - I'm not a big Soderbergh fan, I guess.
The Devil's Carnival - From almost all the people that brought you Repo! The Genetic Opera. It was decent.
Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers - For 50/50. It could have been better, but it was alright.
Hansel & Gretel - A Korean horror/thriller/fantasy/drama. Starts off slow, then gets really screwed up halfway in. A very 'dark fantasy', twisted take on fairy tales with some H&G ideas sprinkled in. I recommend it.
