It's a plot point. It's Jason movie 10, hence X.

Like I said, there are some weirdly fantastic moments in the film, but I do not recommend it.

Like seriously, it's rage inducing when they go left, when going right would have been so much better.

I used to consider horror movies my favorites, now I wonder if I just wanted to look at boobs. And see vampires rip people apart.

Never really been a big fan of Marvel or DC movies, probably because I didn't read comic books when I was a kid. Anyhow, for lack of decent movies I decided to watch every movie in chronological order rather than released order. I've watched the first 5 so far and I'm enjoying them so far.

Captain America: The First Avenger (takes place during WWII)
Captain Marvel (takes place in 1995)
Iron Man (takes place in 2010)
Iron Man 2 (takes place after Iron Man)
The Incredible Hulk (time unspecified, pre-Avengers)
Thor (time unspecified, pre-Avengers)
The Avengers (takes place in 2012)
Iron Man 3 (takes place six months after The Avengers)
Thor: Dark World (post-Avengers, pre-Ultron)
Captain America: Winter Soldier (post-Avengers, pre-Ultron)
Guardians of the Galaxy (sometime in 2014)
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (after Guardians)
Avengers: Age of Ultron (takes place in 2015)
Ant-Man (takes place in 2015)
Captain America: Civil War (post-Ultron, pre-Infinity War)
Spider-Man: Homecoming (post-Civil War, pre-Infinity War)
Doctor Strange (takes place in 2016)
Black Panther (takes place in 2017)
Thor: Ragnarok (post-Ultron, pre-Infinity War)
Avengers: Infinity War (takes place in 2017)
Ant-Man and The Wasp (ambiguous, but fits nicely between IW and Endgame)
Avengers: Endgame (starts in 2017, finishes in 2022)
Spider-Man: Far From Home (post-Endgame)

Cabin in the woods.

I get why they leaned the way they did, they didn't want it to be viewed as a parody, but some of this movie is deeply upsetting despite being a comedy.

My mom loved it.

I do like that they finally blame Gerard Butler for all the poo. One can only be surrounded by that level of event so many times before people start to talk...

I wish they'd gone the way of the Saints Row series. First one is a serious crime drama, with some humorous notes. Second one thoroughly mocks the tone while supposedly following a similar path (Take over the city), this time as a batman villain. Third one, utter insanity mixed with an 80's teen film. Fourth one ALIEN INVASION AND YOU'RE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

Hell, he's already been in the right locations for all of these possibilities, and he's saved the President enough times I could see other people not running against him in the general election. like, "I don't want to be president, Korean/arab/haliburton terrorists are just gonna try and kill me, and this guy won't be there to save me!"

And he just grins at them across the podium, knowing exactly what they're thinking. Butler's got a great unhinged smile.

Plus you know, Earth has fallen is an easy title there.

The Irishman. 3.5 hour long movie but the Scorsese format kept it interesting. Great cast and it was pretty cool to see Romano play a serious role.

My feeling with Rambo LB was someone saw man on fire and was deeply offended.

Eh, I was mad at True Detective Season 2 when the cartel guys... wait, spoilers. Let's just say I was unsatisfied how S2 dealt with the cartel people,  and that I didn't bother with True Detective Season 3 because of it.

Like, just the yarn spun at the drugged out meetup with Rust's cover of "crash" in S1 would have been fantastic, instead we got morose Vince Vaughn, concussed cowboy Collin Ferrell, and a female lead who may as well have been a ghost.

I heard people are afraid to say it sucked, don't know if I want to sink that kind of time on a Scorsese.

I just watched "the first 8" which is kind of a doco on Tarantino. They touch on the Weinstein, but it rings a little hollow. Michael Madsen spent a lot of time with the production, and he just flat out says, even if you knew what he did, and Quentin did, Weinstein could destroy you with one phone call.

I didn't like basterds. Like the opening scene, super powerful, but the movie itself didn't hold me. So I haven't actually watched Django or Hateful 8.

I have heard 9, Once upon a time in Hollywood, is not great, and he's said he's only doing ten.

I do wonder what ten will be.

I watched a really decent little horror recently called [imdb]In The Tall Grass[/imdb]. It was quite original even though the story was a little hard to understand - even when you sort of find out what's going on towards the end.

Nonetheless, I personally thoroughly enjoyed it.

7/10

I slogged through the Stand, an American TV miniseries.  It started out well but then dragged on and on and on.  Gak.  The book looks like a doorstop and there's too much to read and too little time to venture into that.  I once read Norman Mailer's Ancient Evenings, a novel in desperate need of an editor who could whip it into shape and down to a manageable size.  I suspect Mailer's adept transformation of himself into an American literary monument averted such useful and necessary interventions.  Maybe that was the case with the Stand.  I think a skillful screenwriter could adapt Ancient Evenings into a decent miniseries or movie, but I haven't seen any effort in that direction.

I've only read King's short stories and Pet Sematary, a novel that I enjoyed a lot.  It's clear that he's a brilliant writer.  His descriptions are well wrought and the plots play on all kinds of human anxieties and longings.  He seems to have a clear sense of how pursuing those longings to an extreme can lead to catastrophe.

I think that has by now been established the Mr King is better on the page than on the screen.

I think it's more Vincenzo Natali's adaptation that made it a little confusing (in a good way) as it had that "Cube" feeling about it.
