Viewing Journal: 10/25/2015





472) PAWN SACRIFICE
(2015 dir. Edward Zwick) Date Seen: October 25 2015

The first good thing Edward Zwick has made in a long long time. Like BLACK MASS last month, the ensemble is the real highlight. Especially Tobey Maguire! His best work since BROTHERS (2009) in my opinion.










471) DRACULA: PRINCE OF DARKNESS
(1966 dir. Terence Fischer) Date Seen: October 25 2015

I wish I had seen this sooner. It's scarier than HORROR OF DRACULA (1958) & even a bit more psychedelic. With buckets of bright red movie blood!









470) THE FOOD OF THE GODS
(1976 dir. Bert I. Gordon) 2nd Viewing: October 25 2015

Those little maggot/grub monsters are still some of my favorite creatures ever to grace horror movies!








469) THIS ISLAND EARTH
(1955 dir. Joseph M. Newman) Date Seen: October 25 2015

I almost feel like I've seen this one before from the countless times it's been lampooned & referenced in popular media. One thing's for sure; those damn aliens are still a wonder to behold! Very dynamic & unique creature effects. Appropriately cinematic.
