Star Wars Resistance (2018)
This is what Rebels was cancelled for? This trash? Dave Filoni and crew should be embarrassed to pass this crap onto the public. Horrible animation, bad stories, worse voice acting than even the usual Marvel direct to video movie. Why is this on at 10 at night? It's certainly a kiddy show and should be on at 7am. This can't be cancelled soon enough. Disney needs to leave the running of the Star Wars universe to the Lucasfilm people, because whatever they're doing - isn't working. If this is the future of Star Wars under the Disney umbrella, please sell the franchise to someone who will care more than just about money.
While the outbreak part of this and the zombie killings are great, the rest of it is strictly for hormonal teens. The girls all have their breasts heaving all over the place, and they're always in their little sailor suits. Worth a view but not much more.
What do you get when you cross the voice of Boris Karloff, the genius of Doctor Seuss, and the animation art of Chuck Jones? A brilliant christmas classic that, no matter how many times Hollywood tries to cheapen by it's worthless remakes, will never be surpassed.
Diary of the Dead (2007)
The Last of Romero's Good Zombie films
While I hate found footage movies, the genre a waste of time, this is Romero's last good film. The characters and story are interesting, and the zombies are back to being dumb, creatures of destruction. The idea of the outbreak being carried across the internet, since the government is trying to cover it up, is excellent. While at the end it gets a little slow it's still worth seeing and far superior to Survival of the Dead, the worst film George ever made.
Land of the Dead (2005)
Where Romero started to go wrong.
This is the beginning of the end for George. It actually started with Day of the Dead, where Bub became a popular character as a zombie with soul. That's when George started caring more about the walking corpses than his human characters. In this, the Zombies are regaining some memory. Why? And if they are remembering that they were human, why are they still eating humans? The human characters are poorly developed, just to give the zombies something to eat. Even the hero characters aren't memorable. The whole thing with the silly truck maguffin takes away from what there is of a story. How is Fiddler's Green powered? Why are the rich in charge? George is trying to have a social commentary on this, but it fails. The only reason this got 4 stars is the amazing special effects. Other than that, this is a poor film.
The Quatermass Experiment (2005)
Oh hurray! They did a live remake of the original. Except this stunk. I much prefer the filmed version with Brian Donlevy as Bernard Quatermass. This talky, dull version with it's metaphysical (read:cheap) ending was just a waste of time.
The Predator (2018)
Better than any of the AVP films, but that isn't saying much.
This might have been better had Shane "overrated" Black bothered to watch Predators 1 and 2. Somewhere in this mess of over acting, great action scenes and utter loss of logic of any kind, might be a decent movie. Too bad this isn't it. We have a good predator being chased by an upgraded bad predator (as to how they're fusing their best prey's DNA with their own is glossed right over) because the good predator is bringing something to earth we shouldn't have. (Which ends up being one of the dumbest ideas in the entire movie). This basically just mushes along from action scene to action scene with no questions asked. In some ways it could be a movie with outtakes from every other Predator movie. Olivia Munn is a bad ass, but we never find out why a biologist is such. The crew that's put together by happenstance is a crude rewriting of the original movies crew, sans Arnold. This is just another movie where Hollywood thinks that just using the name Predator will have people flocking to theaters. I saw it today with 9 other people. So think on that.
Bombshell Bloodbath (2014)
This movie is one of the reasons that many horror fans hate zombie movies. Bad acting, bad ideas, bad story, bad everything. The other reviews have to be by people paid, or too stoned to actually know what they're watching. Taking ideas from many better movies (including a death by shovel scene from Day of the Dead), this story of a scientist (who gets half his face chewed off but doesn't get infected) trying to bring back the dead is beyond a waste of time. Just garbage all around.
Queen Crab (2015)
Trash and the synopsis is wrong!
This is a terrible film. The acting, directing, story and special effects are TRASH! The only thing done right are the few instances of stop motion. Add to this that that there is no meteor and no sleeping monster. That's entirely wrong! This is about a little girl (also a terrible actor) who finds a crab that lives in a fresh water lake behind their home. She feeds it grapes filled with daddy's plant growth (to stave off future starvation). They die in a freak accident and years later the girl is the Queen of this particular crab, gigantic now (think Harryhausen's Mysterious Island) runs rampant There's also a blatant lie about this movie, they claim there's only good, old fashioned stop motion and no CGI. While many of the crab scenes are indeed, Stop Motion, there is some really pathetic CGI in the movie. It's on a par with anything The Asylum, home studio for the SyFy channel uses. A really stupid film that might be too dumb to even be on the Syfy(less) channel.
Bubba the Redneck Werewolf (2014)
Horror comedy that almost works
When a redneck doofus sells his soul to the devil, he's changed into a werewolf and, much like Teen Wolf, his life gets better. He gets laid, is popular and has to fight the devil at the end. Worth a view it could have been funnier.
Not really a werewolf movie
Super intelligent wolves, who have been driven from their natural habitat due to man's encroachment are savaging those responsible. Based on a book (which this is better than), it's an ok movie worth a view.
The Wolfman (2010)
Better than most remakes
What makes this better than most remakes is that the story is decent without totally aping the original. Also the cast is superb, with Benecio Del Toro playing, like Chaney, a tormented man. Hopkins is as usual, excellent. Emma Blunt is believable as Larry's love interest. The make up by Rick Baker is superb. Well worth seeing.
The Wolf Man (1941)
This is still Lon Chaney Jrs greatest performance. As a man returning home, he is bitten by a werewolf who he kills, and is cursed himself. Most of the werewolf lore in this was made up by the screenplay's author, but so what? This is still a dynamically great movie with a superb cast. Easily one of the top five monster movies put out by Universal from 1931-1945. Chaney's soul searing acting and Jack Pierces makeup make this movie. Claude Rains adds a nice touch of gravitas as his father. Simply great.
House of Dracula (1945)
Last of the Original Gang of Monsters movies
Seemingly rushed into production, this is ok, but could have been much better. A kindly scientist sets out to cure the Wolfman and Frankenstein, as well as a hunchbacked woman. However, all good deeds are not rewarded and for some of the cast (I won't say who) things go astray. Well worth seeing.
Red Riding Hood (2011)
Different take on Red's story
Starring the amazingly huge eyed Amanda Seyfried, this is a different take on the story of Red Riding Hood and the wolf, who in this case is a werewolf! Nicely casted, the story could have used a bit of tightening, but it's a fun, harmless movie.
I Was a Teenage Werewolf (1957)
Made for the Drive in!
An ok movie with Michael Landon as a rage filled kid who a doctor turns into werewolf with psychiatry, unleashing his inner wolf. While the makeup is corny, this is a fairly fun movie that's a different take on werewolves. Better to see this than the worthless An American Werewolf in Paris!
While I don't love An American Werewolf in London (I found the design of the Werewolf disappointing), I hate this movie. A sequel in title only, The CGI werewolves are crap and so is the lame story and acting. Just a really bad movie that was likely a tax write off.
I'm not a big fan of comedy-horror. While this is an ok movie, some of the comedy elements fail, and, as much as I love Rick Baker, this is one of my least favorite werewolf designs. It looks more like a bear than a wolf. Also David Naughton isn't that good of an actor. They could have used a better, more believable lead than the Doctor Pepper guy. Jenny Agutter is the best thing about this movie.
The Werewolf of Washington (1973)
This could have been a great werewolf film, but it's not. The makeup is silly, the story is soso and the acting varies wildly. The story is very basic, guy gets bit, guy gets hairy, guy runs wild until he's killed. There are better werewolf movies out there.
Werewolf of London (1935)
One of the first big Werewolf films, Henry Hull and Werner Oland are brilliant as competitors for the lone flower that can cure their lycanthropic curse. The make up on Hull is absolutely gorgeous (and was homaged by Penny Dreadful). While it may be slow for today's audiences, this is a great movie and should be seen by anyone calling themselves a monster or werewolf fan.
There are only two types of werewolf films, good and bad. This is one the bad. I've always found Wes Craven to be overrated. I hated the Last House on the Left, was left unawed by the Scream movies, and really didn't care for this mess of a movie at all. It seems like they took a bunch of ideas, dropped them in a blender and then pieced it back together. Just a bland, unconvincing werewolf film.
The Curse of the Werewolf (1961)
Why did Hammer never make another Werewolf film?
One of the best werewolf movies ever made, with Oliver Reed really just stealing the entire movie, it makes me ponder, why was this the only werewolf movie by hammer? They did many Frankensteins, Draculas and Mummy's, but only one Werewolf. Perhaps that's because they set the bar so high, direction, cast, story, makeup, that they never thought they'd top it. This is one of the top five werewolf movies of all time.
The Boy Who Cried Werewolf (1973)
This was one of the last double features I ever saw in the movies. It was released with Sssss, which is about a were-snake. Basically a kid goes with his pop for the weekend (his parents are divorced) and pop gets bitten by a werewolf. Problems ensue. While not a big budgeted movie, it does have heart and is worth seeing. It's a fun movie that one can relax during and enjoy.
How to Make a Monster (1958)
So So semi sequel to Teenage Werewolf and Frankensteins
Somewhat lame movie has fired makeup artist using his talents to turn to teens into the monsters (neither of the original actors plays the monsters which might have helped) and he uses them (of course) for revenge! Not great, not bad, but kind of a rip off in the monster department.
Teen Wolf (1985)
A typical 80's teen comedy
As usual, Michael J. Fox plays a likeable schnook who could be Marty McFly's cousin. A loser, it turns out he's a werewolf, but a good guy werewolf who is way more popular as a lupine biped than as his loser self. Fun in parts, corny in others - it's worth watching, but it's nowhere near as good as Back to the Future. Avoid the extremely lame Teen Wolf 2.
