The Descent
The Descent (2006)
10 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


The Descent is yet another survival horror flick in a long line of survival horror flicks. Fortunately, this one has slightly more brains than most. And I do mean that figuratively.

The beginning of the movie, for my money, is the most well done part. Before the six hapless heroines of this tale even enter the cave, the main characters are nicely set up, and the dynamic of the group is nicely established. Even before you witness any creepy crawlies in the cave, a sense of claustrophobia is securely entrenched in your psyche so when the real action starts, you know these ladies will have no easy time escaping.

Then the "monsters" show up. If you've seen the preview, you may be disappointed in the initial grand reveal of these guys. Well, maybe not disappointed, but you may see it comng and not be as startled as if you hadn't seen it before. But then the action ratchets up, and it's quite an enjoyable ride. The only downfall really is that it does get repetetive once the creeps start jumping out of everywhere. And I won't even go into the flaws in the baddies tracking abilities. But if you put aside the "why the heck did that happen?" aspect and bring along your suspension of disbelief skills, you'll have a good time at this action packed thriller. Also, bear in mind the ending that you'll see in the US is not the original ending. Apparently, the powers that be decided we here in the states couldn't take the harsher ending, so if you see it, you may want to dig around online afterwards and see what really happens.

Slither (2006)
10 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


I went to see Slither this weekend, hoping for a little bit of B-Movie silliness, and that's exactly what I got. I have to say that I was delighted with this movie. Yes, delighted! If you're going to make a movie about a bunch of outer space slugs who jump into human bodies and create zombies intent on taking over the earth, you better do it with tongue planted firmly in cheek. I think there was only one part in the movie I found to be just past campy and into the realm of stupid (note to film makers: fighting with animals is neither funny nor scary), and the rest of the flick had a really nice balance. Yes, it's goofy, but ut doesn't really try and take itself seriously either. Nathan Fillion has great comic timing, and he works well as the charming police chief hero. Also notable is Gregg "You'd know him if you saw him" Henry, who is crassly hysterical throughout.

If you feel like checking out a fun movie along the lines of Evil Dead II and Toxic Avenger (nice little tribute in the movie) that doesn't take itself too seriously and is genuinely funny, go see Slither.

Serenity (2005)

Go. See. Serenity. Now.

I saw it three times this weekend. It's that good.

Kung Fu Hustle
11 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Sometimes you just know within a few minutes of a movie beginning that you're going to like it. This one is like that.

This movie is about a small and poor community encountering a big, bad gang and their fight to keep their town safe under attack. It's a Kung Fu spectacular with all kinds of over-the-top weirdness thrown in. I don't really know how to describe it and do it justice, but it's fun and crazy and action packed. I enjoyed it very much.

I won't waste time by expounding on the subject of this entry. It's bold. It's crazy. I really dug it. Go see it.
