Yesterday I watched Gamera Guardian of the Universe on Amazon Prime. I really enjoyed the movie. Now here is a fun fact, this movie is the first kaiju movie where one of the kaiju is played by a woman. In the movie, Super Gyaos was played by suit actress Yumi Kameyama.
Colour Out of Space, I've wanted to watch it for a while because I've been reading some Lovecraft novels recently, and while it's not bad it didn't exactly grip me. Some of the effects are nice to look at, and Madeline Arthur is pretty, but there weren't exactly any scary moments in there, and I was lead to believe Nicolas Cage's character would frequently go full Nicolas Cage ballistic, but he really doesn't. I give it a 6/10.
Still my favorite horror movie of all time, for its practical effects and the raw cheesiness of some of the scenes, almost becoming a dark comedy at times. Yes folks. It's ok for horror movies to have funny parts in them.
Not gonna lie. I honestly thought it was just going to be Scooby-Doo CG. But it was more of an homage to Hanna-Barbera in general, and actually went a few places that I wasn't expecting. So definitely way better than I thought it was going to be.
The Bay, a found-footage horror movie about a coastal town in Maryland that gets overrun with mutated flesh-eating sea lice. I've known about The Bay and its premise for a long time but had no desire to actually watch it, however it was on TV a few days ago so I thought I'd give it a try. As far as found-footage goes, it's no Troll Hunter, but it was still competently made and some of the news report and Skype call segments felt authentic. There's nowhere near as much body horror or gore as you'd expect, and the characters are a bit tropey (the plucky upstart reporter who's in over her head, the teenagers who mess around and get flirty before getting killed by the monster, the corrupt politician who knows of the danger but covers it up to save face, that kind of thing). Not much more to say really, The Bay is just your average found-footage monster movie. I give it 5 out of 10
