Oh, and Monsters was way beyond excellent.
I really liked the approach to kaiju that movie took. Glad to hear you enjoyed it, too.
Less confidant on this, but you might have heard a buzz about a recent one called The Void
? Well, it's warranted. It's a Lovecraftian (without mentioning Cthulhu or The Necronomicon
, et al even once*), practical f/x-driven hellride. Yes, it has its faults. Seems like a movie can't go a day with praise online anymore without the inevitable backlash. Anyway, I mentioned being less confident on The Void
because you're tastes are tough to gauge. Forgive me, but some of those SyFy original features you watch? Woof. I've tried watching some of those straight, stoned, drunk...no matter. Just can't last through 'em. It's like Chox and his Troma. As long as you guys thrive on those, I can never be sure if our tastes are going to match with other movies.
*I wish more movies would do that. Instead of namedropping from the mythos, just do homage by bringing that cosmic terror to the proceedings. Unlike most folks, I feel like there actually HAVE been some decent Lovecraft-inspired movies, but there's been more than a few sub-par efforts that almost do harm to the heritage.
