I've been a member since 2001 although I've been roaming the site since the late 90's.

Ernest Hemingway once wrote, "The world is a fine place and worth fighting for." I agree with the second part.

Blue Valentine (2010)
Possibly the most realistic "romantic" film.
The realistic relationship between the starring couple is what makes this movie an excellent display of mature relationships of young couples.
It treats topics as work life, resentment, frustration, and the always polemic "what would if...?" relevant moments in someone's life.
The chemistry between Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling is magnetic. Both actors demonstrate why they are amongst the best actors of their generation.
You may relate to this movie so beware because the experience is not positive at all. However, it should be a wake up call for troubled couples.
Dressed to Kill (1980)
The most American-Giallo. Stylish, sexual, violent, and inventive.
Fantastic entry in the Giallo sub-genre from Director De Palma who knows perfectly his references, mainly Dario Argento, although he has denied to being influenced by the Italian maestro.
This film is very sexual, violent, and creative in terms of plot. It also features plenty of humor courtesy of the young son of one of the killer's victims because of his investigation techniques (ahead of their time).
The acting is stellar, the plot very intriguing, and the gore is fantastic although is only present in one scene. Dario Argent should be proud of the elevator scene.
A great addition to the Giallo sub-genre.
Plenty of fun!
Ahead of it's time Classic Monster movie. I came to appreciate this movie after a 2013 London showing in some sort of drive-in in the middle of the river.
It was a fantastic experience because the movie is campy and offers plenty of black humor situations mainly created by the presence of the creature, who may be ahead of its time.
The settings are well done, the whole experience in the boat is tense, and the Creature is awesome looking!
The lead female character is extremely sexy and loves to show off her legs plus she looks like Jennifer Connelly, which is a good thing ;)
The campy situations and the nerve-tensing music may damage the experience but it is a fun experience nevertheless.
My Sucky Teen Romance (2011)
Good for a young audience who may want to get into the Horror genre.
I had the chance to watch this flick during a hot Saturday afternoon in London, in a floating cinema (2013) and I had a good time for two reasons:
-The film is directed by a young and smart teenage girl who has seen many vampire movies. -I could ask her a question through a Skype interview. She told me she was influenced by classic vampire movies such as The Lost Boys and mostly Near Dark. That is a plus because clearly she knows her references very well.
The gore is minimum but very well done and you can say that she likes blood in her stories.
I give it a 5 because it is a naive film oriented for a young audience.
Let's keep an eye to this girl, she may do good things for our genre in the near future.
Fright Night 2 (2013)
Call Peter Vincent! We have an emergency.
The worst horror movie of 2013.
Let's get things straight. How could you remake a remake and expect it to be good? "Fright Night 2" remakes the 2011 remake and tries to add a new sub-plot that fails miserably because it reminds us (the die hard fans) of the plot of the 1988 sequel to the 1985 classic.
Therefore, you can guess the outcome of this one... Oh, it's bad. The cast is atrocious except for the super sexy Jaime Murray who delivers an extremely sexy scene where she is in lingerie and making out with another woman. That alone, worths your money ;)
I could not stand the new Charlie or Peter Vincent, but Evil Ed steals the show as the worst character in the franchise.
The settings are nice because the Director shows the beauty of Bucarest, which is an amazing place (also known as the Little Paris) and some interesting settings near the ending.
However, the Direct to Video production values are very poor and you can say this is almost a student film.
Avoid it at all costs. It damaged the reputation of our beloved franchise.
The Room (2003)
Cult movie for the wrong reasons.
Oh, I had a hard time giving it a 1, however, the movie is incompetent in the production aspect as well as the plot, acting, score... Well, you get the idea.
I found about "The Room" in the Prince Charles Cinema in London because the place has a big poster of it. Then, curiosity became obsession and I did research about everything that had to do it. No curiosity, maybe, morbid intentions.
It is laughable for the wrong reasons but it is cult entertainment for sure. It made me roar in laughter and could not believe how bad was it.
So, you may wanna give it a chance in order to witness that what people say about it, is REAL!
Tommy Wiseau may be an underestimated genius for scenes such as the rooftop scene, the fight during a party, the tedious love scenes, ail of Danny's participations, and more... Oh well, THIS IS a true cult movie.
The Lincoln Lawyer (2011)
Excellent and realistic lawyer movie.
Myself, as a lawyer, can relate to the moral arguments and non-lawful "techniques" displayed in the movie. That is the reason why I believe the plot is very complete in terms of legal concepts, situations, and most importantly (the reason of the movie), because of the interesting story behind it.
The acting is great, the Direction perfectly creates a courtroom drama without being dull, the humor is well-welcomed and the score also works very well.
If you are a lawyer give this movie a chance in order to relate to the moral situations of its protagonist and also because it offers an interesting perspective on the "main" situation.
Plus the twists even if they are very Hollywood, are damn well done.
Un gatto nel cervello (1990)
Denigrating, atrocious, extremely violent... Exquisite. Fulci's tribute to Fulci!
It is Dr. Lucio Fulci's party and we are all invited! In approximately 90 minutes, we are bombed with extremely gory and violent situations involving mutilations, brutal beatings, beheadings, slashed throats, exposed guts, vulgar language, etc. There is even a very weird moment from a musical film where a woman is bitch slapped without mercy while she sings!
Fulci's psychiatrist's smile is one of the most frightening things I've seen in a while!
This is a bizarre movie. It is brutal, filled with blood, and misogynistic. It is a tribute from Fulci to himself. Hey, even at the ending he drives a boat while accompanied by a very sexy Italian chick in a bikini.
Sadly, it is a very flawed film. The plot is absurd but in my opinion it inspired Wes Craven's "New Nightmare" (however, Ze do Caixao A.K.A. Coffin Joe used it on "O Exorcism Negro" from 1974).
The editing is horrible. The music is lousy. The acting sucks! Fulci may be the best actor in the whole film.
But it is very entertaining for gorehounds. It's extremely violent content should please those who hail Fulci like me.
Non si sevizia un paperino (1972)
Haunting, intriguing, poetic. Fulci's Giallo masterpiece.
My first reaction after watching the ending was a standing ovation. This is a fantastic Giallo tale of murder, mystery, and obscure traditions inside a little town that is not everything it seems.
The plot surrounds the death of three infants. There are many suspects but the truth is horrifying. It is up to a news reporter and an impressively gorgeous woman to discover who is behind this atrocious murders in a town that hides more than a dark secret.
Lucio Fulci has an unfair reputation as a Director of bad taste. OK, he has done many brutal and extremely gore flicks but he has also produced extraordinary Gialli and other memorable films.
This film is in my opinion his true masterpiece. The atmosphere is eerie, you can feel you are wandering the town that is afraid of the night. The story is very interesting and thrilling. Also, it is ahead of it's time when displaying taboos such as pedophilia. The acting is surprisingly good. Florinda Bolkan and Barbara Bouchet shine with their roles. Fulci's Direction is solid and demonstrates his peculiar vision towards Horror.
There are many memorable moments such as the shocking cemetery murder while Heavy Metal plays in the background, the disturbing yet poetic ending, and many more.
This is on the top 5 Gialli ever. I don't want to spoil it because it is an experience that any Horror movie fan should live. It demonstrates that Mr. Fulci did know a lot about Horror and style. His name deserves more recognition among the pantheon of the best Horror Directors.
P.S. Barbara Bouchet is possibly the hottest actress ever to appear in a Giallo. Just look at her amazing nude body and her sexy mini skirts.
Zombi 2 (1979)
Fulci's other masterpiece that revolutionized Zombie-Cinema.
George A. Romero created the modern conception for zombies. However, Fulci created the scariest zombies. I am talking about rotten corpses that suck human blood.
"Zombi 2" is all about an eerie atmosphere, spectacular action sequences (the shootout and fire inside the church is epic), bizarre moments (zombie vs shark anyone?), brutal & gory death sequences (wood in the eye, ouch!), plus tension and nerve tensing moments.
This is one of Fulci's masterpieces. It offers everything a zombie cinema fan asks for. In my opinion, this is the definite zombie film because it has the perfect amount of gore, scare factor, atmosphere, and zombies.
Sure, it is not a perfect film. In fact, it has many flaws such as stupid decisions by some characters, lousy dialog, and random sequences. But we can ignore these elements because the whole time there is a fear of death. This island reeks of death.
"Dead Island", "Resident Evil", and many generic films owe a lot to Mr. Fulci's unique vision towards Horror.
The Apocalyptic ending is scary alone and is material for nightmares.
