MY GENRE MOVIE CRED!
It suddenly dawned on me that I haven’t posted many movie reviews on this blog – especially movies that I’ve watched either on cable or blu-ray. Most of the time it’s because I don’t want to waste mine or your time with mediocre posts about films that I just felt were okay or even just good or entertaining. I wanted to reserve the Guardians of the Genre for pimpin’ wicked cool films that I felt are overlooked or that I thought I could give a slightly different perspective on; even if that perspective were just weird or funny. I did want to let anybody who does wonder if I actually watch any of the genre movies that I profess to love know what I have been watching, if for no other reason, to keep up my genre movie cred.
Here are all the films I have watched in my tripped out home theater just in the past month:
Survival of the Dead (2009)
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010)
Lost City (1935 - 12 chapter serial)
Ninja Assassin (2009)
Clash of the Titans (2010)
Bitch Slap (2009)
Halloween 2 (2009)
The Decent Part 2 (2009)
Paranormal Activity (2007)
30 Days of Night: Dark Days (2010)
If any of these films had really pushed my buttons I would have posted a postal blog on it. Unfortunately, most of these flicks were at best entertaining and some were just down and dirty dreadful. I can’t recommend any of them highly; nor can I say that the worst of the lot were completely without merit (although Paranormal (in)Activity comes mighty close).
If I find the time I will post a short review on a few of them; but more than likely I’ll only post on something that I find wicked cool! I have to run now…. I have to watch Zombieland again… for the fourth time… or is that the fifth time? Freak out!
