Thanks all! She's in the last couple weeks of pregnancy and suffers from shaky cam trauma after the time we sat in the front row for The Visit, years ago. So being able to go in knowing there wouldn't be any struggle was very helpful. We ended up watching and enjoying a lot!

It was actually the finale of our about-to-have-a-kid Halfoween triple feature.

Dolls
The Good Son
Gretel and Hansel, the only one I had not yet seen

Overall, a really great triple feature.

I’ve had in search of darkness 2 on in the background here and there for the past two days it’s not a particularly great documentary, one thing I have noticed though....does Cassandra Peterson (Elvira) age??? She’s only a few months away from 70 and still looks like she’s in her 30s.

I feel like a lot of this footage was shot when they did the first one. I have zero interest in turning on the first one to find out though.

Not really unless you want to see young Sharon Stone and like movies about cults. Also Ernest Borgnine with a crazy beard.

Craven's made worse though so if you're going through everything...

Side Note:

goddamn the back half of the Insidious series sucks rear end. James Wan is legit a great director that can pull together the barest bones of an idea into a compelling film, but its all poo poo after he's done directing. You'd think Leigh Whanell would at least have picked up a thing or two working with Wan for so long, but nope. Didnt learn poo poo.

Leigh's Invisible Man and Upgrade are great. Shame about Insidious 3 but yeah I don't think that franchise should have been more than one film long, and nothing past 2 being worth it has made me feel more sure of that

Oh that's right he did Invisible Man and Upgrade. Those are great films. Looks like Insidious 3 was his first directing gig. So I'll toss it off as that, just getting the legs down for directing, but woof. Thank god he's past that hurdle.



Didnt know an Upgrade tv show is in the works. That's cool and another attempt at remaking Escape From New York.

quote:

Condemned criminal Snake Plissken is dispatched to the island of Manhattan -- now a quarantined danger zone -- to rescue a female U.S. Senator in danger.

dunno why its a woman senator and not just a woman president weird choice, but ok. I doubt it'll get made though, they've been trying with that one for awhile.

Thinking about it now and I wish Leigh had been the one to handle Mortal Kombat instead of whoever was responsible for this new one. Upgrade has better gore and action, and Invisible Man had better effects than MK did.

If it was the president, then they could justify sending in the military. For a senator, not so much.

You're the last person in this thread who I would normally ask if they'd seen the movie, but what? Hauk does mobilise troops after the plane crash, but Romero says that the President would be killed if they didn't withdraw. That's when Hauk comes up with the plan for Snake. It doesn't matter whether it's the President or a senator.

Hopefully I've had enough caffeine to make sense. What Hauk sent in was his officers. Granted with what we see, an argument can be made that there's little difference between the police and the military. Sending in the military regardless of what Romero says would present the image to the world that the US is so stupid that they can't even vett who's on Air Force One and it goes down over that weird prison island. In that case, that nuclear fusion formula on the tape's probably bullshit too.

Going from what little we know of the remake/reboot, if it was the President going down I can see a knee jerk response of send soldiers in guns blazing. A senator's not going to pull that sort of response.

I think the dynamics of changing the rescue-ee to a woman aren't super great anyway, whether she's the president or a senator or an influencer. If we're going to try flipping things around, why not make Snake a woman instead? It kind of seems like the only way you'd be able get a fresh take on the character without the specter of Kurt Russell hanging over the whole movie.

Original action moved to tv. Cinemax had the 🐐 level action tv for nearly a decade with Strike Back, Banshee, Quarry, Warrior, and Jett. Shame they completely disregarded it.
