    I don't know if anyone's discussed and I can't be bothered to read back, even a little.


    I saw the new Hellraiser last night. I liked it. Look, it's not a ... good movie. But none of them are. But it's at least as good as 3/4, if not as good as 1/2. Better than anything since 4. I didn't love the voice they used for new Pinhead* but the female portrayal was pretty cool.


    *And this isn't fair to the actress or director. I always thought that Doug Bradley's voice was absolutely perfect for the character. Just the right amount of creepy, strong, evil, menacing, etc. But I don't know if that's fair to compare them.



    edit: I really enjoy the right wing whining about this and the new Predator movies using female characters, and then judging the movies against "real" movies instead of the popcorn garbage they are. No **** they aren't as good as American Beauty. Do you think that's their goal? Stop being disingenuous and comparing them to movies outside the genre.

    Candy could do it all. He could do sweet, caustic, self-deprecating, straight man, knew now to nail a character without becoming a caricature, and just flat out made me laugh period.

    Bit of everything. Cocaine, alcohol, cigarettes, obese with a family history of heart issues, pretty much checked all the boxes for a heart attack at 43. Would have been 72 this Halloween.

    That looks fantastic. I took a trip down the Wikipedia rabbit hole, and came across this documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4WAUmyKDq0

    Yah those would not have made the trailer.
    most scenes were shot in neighborhoods. Skylines were only used as locations changed.

    slappy,
    mookie caught this on a plane recently, entertaining.
    was very surprised at the city skyline which leads one to believe it’s Manila. Is that so? Dam impressive.

    c.f. Let the Right One In / Let Me In and Open Your Eyes / Vanilla Sky.

    If I had a billion dollars I'd just buy the entire Criterion collection.

    love that The Vanishing appears on this list. Truly a scary movie and one of my favorites. The original Dutch version, not the horse bleep American remake
