    Dracula 2000 is a mediocre nu metal infused lare 90s/early 2000s flick that is fun to watch because HOT DAMN that take on Dracula's origin is 13/10 brilliant.

    Like, seriously, freaking brilliant ideas there and should be used again.
    EXACTLY my thoughts. Have you ever read the Book of Nod?

    Like Dracula 2000, I'm not saying its good, just that their origin of vampires is a sick idea.

    "Creepshow" has been back and it's actually pretty good. Some hits and some misses. But they did it right: 30 minute episodes, always something with a good hook/ premise. Feels very in line with the movies and "Tales from the Crypt" style storytelling.

    ETA: Wait, did you mean Season 2? Did we talk about this before?

    Season 2. Not sure if we had talked about it or not. But I agree, certainly some good ones and some meh ones from Season 1. I remember thoroughly enjoying the Dollhouse.

    Have a free trial via Prime. Watched Color out of Space. Man, this was an excellent adaptation! The writer/director had a great feel for the original story.

    Any good recommendations on Shudder? I'm not seeing much that I haven't seen already and want to rewatch. Watched Deep Red (not Director's cut) and Tenebre on Shudder.

    Mandy could have been a pretty good film but it's too uneven.

    Mandy is generic as hell. I'm a little sick of the cult of Nicholas Cage as well; his "fearlessness" is just being a weirdo in shitty B-movies and getting paid for it. Most of his performances are actually complete shit.

    I thought it was fantastic. I'll admit it did need more Cheddar Goblin to mix in with the cosmic darkness.

    Kicking off October with my first rewatches of both Gremlins films after it's been almost two decades.

    Gremlins (1984) - Man, I'd forgotten how insanely cute Gizmo is, really one of the most impressive and expressive animatronic creations. And is the theater stuff here part of the inspiration for the climatic one in Inglourious Basterds? 8/10

    Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990) - "BUY! BUY! BUY!" Obviously richer both conceptually and in its subtext than the original, but the surface story suffers as a result. I feel Dante struggles a bit modulating this one's anarchy, having some sequences (especially towards the end) getting circuitous and repetitive in case we still miss its (mostly inspired) capitalism-bashing glee. Still very fun, of course, but I prefer Dante's surer hand in inserting a mean streak underneath holiday cheer from the first one. Come to think of it, this kind of parallels me preferring the original Evil Dead's lean, mean intensity slightly over its sequel's grander lunacy as well. 7.5/10
    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    All short films. It's hard to find all these movies nowadays. Most of these were from Netflix DVD but their selection is much smaller now. You might find many on Streaming but you'll probably have to subscribe to half a dozen streaming services.
