Simon Pegg and Nick Frost gives their usual master-comic performances in this wacky alien-road trip movie, but what "Paul" lacks is the clever satire of other comedy movies the duo previously performed in before. After all, the movie really has no self-entity or any consistent style. So, pretty much if you are a passionate fan of Simon Pegg and Nick frost, or you have some time to spend for some popcorn entertainment you got yourself a movie.
The spanish zombie thriller '[REC]' is scary as fu*k. Watching the movie in a first person view with a camera (like 'Blair Witch Project') was the major scare; every detail looked scary and real. However, [REC] is too fast paced, nosier even than 'Cloverfield'. The depth of the movie is pretty shallow. I would recommend to zombie goers.
Directed by Ridley Scott, 'Alien' is one of the most classic horror movies of the time. With amazing CG (c'mon, its the 70's), a strong cast, and creative design (the Alien) the movie scares the audience in every possible way, building up its tension and suspense. The main story does not fully use its abundant suspense the movie saved up but the movie is overall terrific and scary.
John Carpenter's 'The Thing' delivers the true face of man in the verge of terror. The story is packed with gore and scares, one of Carpenter's originals. despite the decent acting, Kurt Russell boldly manages the lone hero act. The tense moments followed by slow, effective chills were also a highlight of the movie. Overall very classical and scary as sh*t.
