My Movie Journal

As I get older I find myself forgetting if I'd seen a movie or read a book. Since 2005 I have been keeping track of everything I watch, read and sometimes listen too or play.

Zombi 5: Killing Birds 1 Absolutely horrible. It was like a student film from a C student. The overly loud sound of chirping insects will drive you nuts... more
Space Chimps 2 Horrible CGI and, except for a handful of gags, not worth your time
Crimson 3 Gangster/mad scientist movie that is only worth watching tsee the satyr burlesque number in the middle of the film.
The Happening 4 Bad acting and a cheesy premise.
Zombi 3 4 Fulci literally phones this one in. A few interesting shots, but mostly poorly paced and horribly acted with no tension
The Antichrist 5 Starts out interesting but loses focus in the second, exorcist wannbe, half.

You Don't Mess With The Zohan 4 A heavy handed attempt at goofball comedy that fails at least 95% of the time. The makers of this film don't seem to grasp how... more

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets 3 I was hoping for another Luc Besson film at least on par with The Fifth Element, but this was terrible. It has some of... more

Assignment Outer Space 3 Low budget sci-fi from the 50s. Only noteworthy for its hard-scifi aspirations.
Dolls 4 Stuart Gordan further assures us that Re-animator was a fluke. Bad acting, bad story, and horrible music. There is an okay... more
Curious George 4 Very boring. Music gets annoying after a while.
Robot Monster 4 One of the worst movies ever made.
Bio Zombie 5 Low, low budget Japanese zombie movie. Terrible make-up. No scares. There are a few funny gags though: finger sushi and a... more
Zombie Genocide 5 Sixty minute homemade zombie film. Admirable for a bunch of Scottish undergrads, but sloppy as all get out.
Sister Streetfighter 5 This sequel has nothing to do with the other 2 Streetfighter movies except for a few shared actors (who aren't even reprising... more

I Drink Your Blood 3 Low budget grindhouse production about killer, satanic hippies. Pretty boring. Only the last, zombie-flick inspired 10 minutes... more
The Devil's Rain 4 Even Shatner and Ernest Borgnine in a goat mask can't save this lame devil worshipers movie.
Aragami 5 The companion piece to 2LDK. Not as good, and a bit too talky and not enough fighting.
