Point Break - 8.5/10

Is Hollywood capable of producing such a cool movie nowadays? Everything’s changed.

Dirty Dozen - -12/10

The only good thing about it was Jim Brown beating the shit out of someone. And Clint Walker

Ratcatcher - 9

I watched this because I'm about to see the new movie she directed with Joaquin Phoenix getting Dick rode hard

Flat out quietly blew me away. I know it was Praised in certain circles of the time, but it is absolutely A gut punch. Makes Lars Von Trier look like Wes Anderson

could not recommend it more highly

Wes just called.
He says he'd prefer you not like his movies because you're a dopey asshole.
Sorry to have to break that news to you.
No, hold on, strike that last thought and kill yourself.

Rampage - 7/10

Took a much longer time to get where it was going than it needed to, could have used a little less battling, a lot less humans doing anything except dying, and a lot more Rampaging, The Rock does basically nothing but his smouldering from Jumanji and running as awkwardly as Steven Seagal, and I absolutely hated when Sif dies but holy FUUUUUCK when the giant monsters were trashing the city I was in heaven.

Also right near the end of the movie, a woman in our packed theatre screamed SHUT UP at someone, and not two minutes later the guy I was sitting next seemed emboldened, and turned around and loudly hissed SHUT UP at the chatty idiots behind us while his two sons looked mortified.

the thing 1982 7.5/10 for all the great stuff in this movie, I found a lot of things annoying on my latest viewing. I'm sure HD is mostly to blame. but it doesn't seem to make that much sense, the pacing is weird, the beloved blood test scene has never sat well with me and more than ever I found myself obsessing over why people in movies always produce blood by cutting the tip of the fucking thumb open - is this because the effect is easier than cutting some other part of that body that wouldn't drive you nuts to have hurting & injured for the next week? it's a white knuckle survival situation and these guys aren't even going to be able to use a key without wincing. that article about the eye-light is complete horseshit, too.

One of the best movies ever, easily John Carpenter's best. The ending and the soundtrack alone

i will forever love The Thing but the blood test scene irks me for one reason as they seem to be using the same scalpel on everyone, wouldn't that infect everyone with microscopic bits of the alien? Also I'm sure it's been mentioned but in the Dog attack you can see one of the puppeteers behind the creature right before it splits open and the giant mouth mutation pushes out before it gets torched. Also I think they should have left the rest of the stop motion monster shots from the last attack scene in the movie, not just the tentacles grabbing the dynamite.

I would never rate the movie less than 9 though.

if you want talk about a movie about a creature, alien is probably better. But if you want something ostensibly about creatures, with much larger philosophical import… The thing. I consider it a masterpiece, shoulder to shoulder with Bresson

People try to make The Thing about more than what it is. Being part of "the apocalypse trilogy" And it is a study of paranoia but I think trying to attach some deeper meaning to it is missing the point. The simplicity of it is what makes it great, it just is. Leave it be.

it meant that much to me; I only saw for the first time pretty recently… Let me like what I want to like. It hit me at the right time, I don't need anyone's permission for that. That is why my favorite movie is still Raiders of the lost Ark. I damn sure didn't read any philosophical examinations; just think about poison eating human identity without quite knowing it. The thing is a top 10 movie

I probably means more to me and has more of that simplistic yet deep magic because I saw it when I was like 6 or 7.
