    Now about 5 episodes into The Returned. Really good show. I think the little boy/Victor stuff is a little overdone, playing on the horror movie creepy kid trope a little too heavily early on. The...

    I watched all of Awake recently. Good show. Not particularly smart on an episodic basis but a good, intriguing concept. I like that they never reveal whether it's a sci-fi premise or a psychological...

    I was the exact opposite. The film started out really well and got progressively worse around the time of his transformation.

    And the ad for the last one was great.

    The ad means nothing. It's completely irrelevant to the end product. Good films have bad ads and bad films have good ones all the damn time.

    I've got no problem with the PGing of it. You couldn't effectively recreate the impact the violence had in the first one, IMO. It was effective because it was in part unexpected.

    Saw the trailer to this while waiting for Robocop to start. It does look terrible.

    Most likely twist: he's the bad guy but he's got split personality disorder, or something.

    Carpenter's high points are massively higher than Argento's, IMO. Although yeah, Vampires, Escape from LA and Ghosts of Mars makes you wonder what the **** happened.
