Watched Sexy Beast, really great British gangster flick with some great touches to set it apart from all the rest. Kingsly and Winstone were both fantastic.

Anna Kendrick, anybody?

She's one of those weird hot/cute actresses for me. For example, I didn't find Anna Kendrick hot or cute in any of the Twilight movies nor did I find her really attractive in Up In The Air. But I just re-watched 50/50 and thought she looked so damn cute, just beautiful in that movie unlike the other movies.

Same deal for Natalie Portman. Didn't find her hot or really attractive in V For Vendetta or any of the Star Wars movies which is probably obvious because of the ridiculous make-up and hair she had most of the time, even the times when she looked somewhat normal, I just thought meh. But I thought she was super sexy in Hesher, maybe it was the nerdy glasses or that she came off as a slut.

I'm weird.

More "Halloween Appropriate" movies I've watched in the last few weeks!

House of Wax (1953)
It is hard to think of this or any film from the 1950s as a remake, but it is. The original film, Mystery of the Wax Museum, I have never seen, so I can't compare the two. What I can say is that I highly enjoy this film. Why? Because Vincent Price is at his fine creepy self here and he carries the movie very well. There are some problems, like the obvious obsession with the 3D gimmick and some bad jokes, but the creepiness of the set up and Price as the villain makes for a highly entertaining film. The climactic scene within the museum itself is appropriately unsettling and truly captures the full extent of the premise of the film. The idea of being killed just to have your corpse trapped within a wax sculpture is very creative and lends itself to some creept images. The statues themselves are creepy without knowning what lies underneath. This is one of those films about the obsessed artist or scientist that views himself as a visionary and take shis work too far that still carries into horror films today (The Human Centipede for example).

Gojira (1954)
The original Japanese version of the first Godzilla film is a true disaster flick. Depite The King of the Monster's cheesy & child friendly reputation, the first entry in the series was nothing short of horrifying. It fully captures the scope of a disaster of any kind, nature or man made, and the title monster itself happens to be a combination of both. It is meant to be an allegory for the use of nuclear weapons, something Japan knows about all too well, but you could watch this film as being about a tornado, a hurricane, an earthquake, or any other natural disaster and the tone would be perfect. Unlike future Godzilla films, the large body count left in the wake of the city destruction is not only presented to the forefront, but dealt with the sense of despair that it warrants. It takes a cool monster and sets it in a realistic world with debates and reactions that would be expected with any other immense destructive force. The original Godzilla is a classic from its time and deserves to be praised as such.

The Creature of the Black Lagoon (1954)
Ah the Creature from the Black Lagoon. This one is a gem from the past. The story and set up is nothing special. A bunch of scientists go nosing around somewhere and come across a monster that kills them off one by one. We've seen that movie dozens of times, right? But where the movie shines is with the monster itself. The Creature or Gill-Man is very cool. He has a unique look that sets him apart from all the monsters that came before and him being able to attack underwater makes me an obvious stand out among the other classic Universal monsters like Dracula, Frankenstein, & The Wolf Man. The characters themseves aren't bad either and provide some fun, if a bit indicative of the time period (reall macho heroes, screaming damsels, etc.). My one major knock on the film is the music score. It isn't that it is bad, but EVERY TIME, the Gill Man comes up on screen, they amp up the music really loudly. It gets a little annoying. As is those, this is one fun monster flick that, IMO, warrants a remake. When are we getting that one?

The Horror of Dracula (1958)
The monster movies from Hammer studios are a pure delight. I love them. They took the old classics and updated them with color, increased production values, and more violence. They are great, and The Horror of Dracula is my favorite. Not only does it possess the great atmosphere and production tha the other great Hammer films have, but it really pushes the Van Helsing/Dracula rivalry to the forefront and makes it one of the ultimate battles of good & evil. It helps to have a great performer like Peter Cushing as the hero and someone with the presence of Christopher Lee making a perfect villain (despite not having much dialogue). This is easily one of the key Dracula films for its more intense nature and all around great presentation. Its Hammer time!

Psycho (1960)
Let me just get this out of the way right off the bat. This ending was probably the first truly memorable movie twist and served as the foundation of great twists to follow. I love how this movie starts off as a completely different film to what we are expecting with us following Janet Lee's character and her theft of several thousand dollars, and then about a half an hour in, it changes into a scary psychological thriller with a creepy setting. The movie is very memroable and very intense, especially once it reaches The Bates Motel. The shower scene alone is worth checking this film out for, but it is a classic film outside of that and one that is great to watch.

Night of the Living Dead (1968)
This is the most infleuntial zombie flick of all time, and is one of the greatest examples of seat of your pants independent film making. What else is there to say? It took almost nothing and made it into a huge something. Every zombie film that has come out since this film owes credit to this classic for establishing most of the cliches and storypoints we associate with zombie films in general. There have certainly been better made zombie films, but few with the overall impact of this one. I love that the movie is in black & white too as that adds to the atmosphere and gives it the classic feel like the classic Universal monster movies.

Psycho is probably one of the most influential movies in the cultural setting and even then is amazing that a movie that depend of several twists (the change of the story, the unexpecyed muerders, the sudden change of genre and even the change of villian at the end) still works today when almost everyone knows who and when die, the most important scene (wich is probably the most famous scene ever) and even the end of the film.

Beyond that, the most amazing fact, is the success from a movie that is almost experimental in every aspect. The same with other Hitchcocks flicks like Rear Window, Spellbound or The Rope

Seeing the Movie in his debut has to be an amazing experience

Natalie Porman is always amazing.

Oh Rope is so awesome. You want to talk about one of the best cinematic examples of getting the most out of the least, that is it right there.

All i've seen her in is 50/50 and shes rediculously fucking adorable.

Been super attracted to Natalie Portman for ages, this may sound wrong but i've thought she was really cute since I saw the Professional & Beautiful Girls (probably saw BG first). You could just tell she was going to grow up to be a beautiful woman. Generally a good actress in most stuff aside from maybe the Star Wars stuff but that I think was more because of the script. Shes smart to boot. Dream woman.

I have an unhealthy obsession with Anna Kendrick, aside from the twilight films (only because I heard she's barely in them), I have seen every movie she has been in. That includes Pitch Perfect, which was actually okay tbh. I would do horrible things in order to do horrible things to her.
