Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013)
excellent pilot but then it really s*cks
Was I looking forward to pick in on a series about the superheroes of Marvel, that's what I thought to see and that's exactly what they told me. Seeing trailers and interviews and seen that the director was already involved in full features about the superheroes I was ready to watch episode one.
And after seeing episode one this series looked great. This I wanted to follow until the pilot was done and we moved further into the real world of SHIELD. And from that moment things went totally wrong for me. We moved 100% away from the superheroes. And after 6 episodes I was disgusted by the series. From an excellent opening it turned into a childish series that even looked fine for teenagers. There's nothing happening at all. Well, there is, the opening something happening and once the agents comes in it's full of clichés. The boss coming up for his crew, the sexy looking infiltrated chick, the nerdie chick, the freak, the yawn, macho man and...zzzzzzzzz.
The effects used are rather good but I admit, after episode 6 I closed the door. Nothing 'marvel'ous here to see.

Black Rainbow (1989)
didn't stand the time
I know that I have seen this years ago on VHS and I watched it again as I am writing this and my only conclusion is that it is a typical flick for the end of the eighties.
We all know that the end of the eighties didn't brought us much in the horror genre except a few and this one is a so-called horror that isn't frightening at all. For todays standards it is even a bit lame. There are no effects to spot or any blood at all and that for a horror. Naturally if you don't add blood (like the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)) you must add suspense or eerie situations but we don't have it here.
The horror lays in the fact that a medium do contact dead people who are in fact still alive. Nobody believes her but once the living are dying like she said things go wrong.
There are a lot of famous names here to see but for me it didn't deliver enough suspense like it did back then. For the Kleenex lovers, Rosanne Arquette do show a few things...

a bit too long but stunning effects and 3D
So much contradiction with the Transformers franchise, people loving it and people saying it's boring and childish. I'm in between. I still like them because the effects are really stunning again but this time it's way too long to keep you attracted to the screen for almost 3 hours. On the other hand it moves away from the original story somehow and still it still refers to the Decepticons and Autobots. It do has an open ending, again, so I guess the next Transformers has got a green light.
I watched it in 3D full HD and on that part it's with open mouth you are going to see the grand opening with the dinosaurs. The 3D used there is really coming into your face, literally. I can even say that that part is the best 3D I have seen so far, even better then The Hobbit up to this writing.
Of course you know by now that the Autobots do transfer into cars and this time it's a Chevy galore. You will see Chevy's, the economy cars up to the new yellow Chevy Camaro 2014 special edition and on that part it's boner time and to add more, there's even a muscle car a Camaro SS included. Naturally there are the expensive cars too to see with brand names you never heard of.
The story itself is rather simple and it do has it flows. Maybe the ending was a bit too long seeing the bad guy turning into a hero. But you don't watch Transformers for the story but for the effects. The acting was above mediocre that I can say with a bit of predictable situations (daughter and boyfriend) and some humour here and there.
Mixed emotions, that's a fact, but I still stand behind the transformers to save earth.

Mixed emotions with this extreme slow so-called horror. I mean, I'm used to see Japanese flicks and I know that they can be rare or for some not to understand but this one is rather simple to catch up with and still, there's not that much going on except two youngsters searching out the murders happening around them. There's a bit of mystery about the girl but to say that this is a horror I can't say.
Even being called Goth, I know the genre very well, no Gothic music to hear or any Goth to spot. It's not because you are interested in the occult that you are a Goth.
Nevertheless, not my cup of tea I thought it would have been reading the reviews but no, this Goth is not my friend..

Crimi Clowns: De Movie (2013)
can someone telling me what I am missing in the hype?
I must be missing something I guess. The hype in Belgium about Crimi Clowns the series and the Hollywood remake that become possible is the talk of the day so I watched the movie itself to see what all the fuss is about.
I saw parts of the series shot in POV which did add something to the experiment but the movie I have to say that it wasn't my thing at all. People bragging about the Belgians answer to Tarantino, I don't think so. There's a lot of situations that should be funny but I never laughed at all. I didn't see any real action going on, sure, they do smash faces but not in a way to turn your face away and I know the idea behind Crimi Clowns, it's better to shock people with not showing then showing. But really, what was there to see, a family being rough and brutal with their friends. Some parts of nudity that is also typical the director Luc Wyns. Just see Matroesjka's in stead.
What I did like was the ending, shot well but overall, I guess it must be me...those clowns ain't funny.

The Purge: Anarchy (2014)
better then part 1 but still...
What should have become a hype became a failure. Part 1 wasn't what people was expecting of it. There was to much talking and almost no action and when action took place there wasn't anything to see. I mean, it doesn't have to be gory but just have a look at A Clockwork Orange (1971).
Still I wanted to see the second entry and it was better then the first one, it did have action but it was still low on brutality. We see the masked gang and they looked indeed scary but you don't see them do anything. And that's the problem with The Purge Anarchy. There isn't any anarchy.
It do has a better story but doesn't offer something special. It's sad to see that a title like this isn't working at all and still get's a lot of promo, just watch Dredd (2012) and you will see what I'm talking about.

Ghost Lake (2004)
cheesy effects and cheap CGI
This is one of those DVD's that you can find for almost free in new condition and it shows why. Still, it's a mystery how those flicks can be distributed all over the world without any problem, you get it, this is really bad.
It's bad on part of acting, editing and the way it was shot. When the production is using CGI then it's really laughable but when the corpses pop up at the ending they really looked fine. It's so strange that some effects are pure crap and others were well done. The worst thing in CGI is when a ghost smashes one's head, the blood splatters on-screen but purely CGI and it really looks stupid.
The story isn't worth watching but being really bad for some it even becomes good. I was also surprised that we do have a bit of juggs being shown here and there by the main lead Tatum Adair.
If you are into Z-flicks with laughable effects this is one to pick up but thinking that you will be necking a brewskie and are having the time of your life then you are really wrong.

The Hamiltons (2006)
This is really a boring family
A rather mediocre score so I thought to give it a try but did I regret watching this piece of crap. There's so much talking going on and be honest you all out there, there's really nothing happening at all.
There's no gore to find and when things go wrong with the captured ones there's nothing to see. each time you think, yes, this time we will see some torturing (made in the torture porn era) you are left with a bitter feeling.
When we do have some red stuff it's so boring, maybe the bath scene is the best of it all but even that I would show to my 8 year old one at home.
At the end the Hamiltons said it perfectly, indeed, go away to another part were we can find fresh blood, well, go and never come back, pleaaaaaase.

Død snø 2 (2014)
excellent follow up
Finally the follow up of Dead Snow is out there. Have given the original one a 9 the expectations were very high on this one, it took a while before it came out and not that much was told about this flick, but have seen it know it still stands as a must see into the zombie genre.
If you have seen Dead Snow (2009) then you had seen a extremely gory flick. Here we do have the same but not only that, they added a bit of black comedy to it with some nerds trying to safe the world against a zombie invasion. But there's more to laugh with and in between that it's gore galore. An excellent follow-up with stupid situations, a little criticism against the church (if you will get it) and gore in it's purest form, a must see and a must have.
I have found the steelbook edition, limited of course full uncut on Blu Ray included with postcards and a comic, catch it if you can. Don't hesitate.

Exit 38 (2006)
50 pence tooth
So far only one review that must said enough. I found this for almost free and gave it a try but what a hell of a movie this was. Sometimes movies straight to video are okay but this one here is not that good after all.
You can see with the start that this flick is one you will turn off or will watch holding the fast forward. The only thing worth seeing are the girls who all walk bear breasted but hey, this isn't an erotic flick, this is a horror and there isn't any. The vampire is really laughable and one you see at teenage parties, with those 50 pence tooth.
It's a flick you come across a few times at flee markets, if you want to go for the girls pick it up but to see a vampire movie.....i don't think so, i drive by for the next exit.
