    Indie cinema near me showed this. It felt like an endurance test at first, the first story seemed to go on forever and I actually fell asleep during the second story and missed most of it. The third (and by far longest) story however is one of the most gorgeous things I've ever seen in my life, basically doom metal in cinema form, with phantasmal depictions of the aftermath of battle that remind me of the best parts of Kurosawa's Ran. The fourth story is slight but ends things on a high note.

    Yep Hoichi the Earless is amazing stuff. I'd probably have the second one The Woman in the Snow next.

    Speaking of folk horror, watched this Russian classic the other day. Pretty advanced special effects for its day and has some iconic scenes but not sure much of it will stay with me beyond that.

    Woman in the Snow seems pretty popular based on the reviews I read, seems I picked the wrong story to fall asleep during :lol: Gonna have to download the movie and rewatch that one at home.

    i haven’t seen it but onibaba often gets associated with that one and is probably even more highly praised

    RIP to a legend. Respectable age to go at, but still a loss. Sean Connery was a big part of my childhood - my dad idolized him (alongside Clint Eastwood) and we would watch a lot of his movies together.

    Yesterday I watched a bunch of horrors to make up for watching barely any during the entire month, It Follows, Kill Baby Kill and Diabolical Dr. Z all for the first time, and Meet the Feebles again though it's not really a horror lol.

    Highlight though was Kiss of the Damned by Xan Cassavetes. As much as vampire films are played out, I still get a lot of satisfaction from watching one that tries to do something interesting with it. Sucks that it doesn't seem like she's done anything since 2012 when she released this movie.

    Edit: Randomly discovered this new director, checking out his debut from a couple of years ago.

    Watched Christine last night after Trick-Or-Treating was done. Haven't seen it in a long time, it was better than I remember.

    Watched the following yesterday while doing work for school:

    Clue - I have lost count of the number of times I have seen it. The ending with Ms. Scarlet as the murderer makes the most sense.

    Evil Dead II - Dead by Dawn, Dead by Dawn! How many metal bands were inspired to write songs and albums due to this movie?

    Army of Darkness - Used to be my favorite but as I get older I find myself enjoying the first Evil Dead the most.

    So I watched The Dead Don't Die. At first I was like "what's the big deal this ain't so bad" and then Jarmusch started huffing his farts and giggling to himself over inside jokes nobody gets and the whole thing vanished up its own anus. I wouldn't say it was terrible but it was definitely a pretentious clusterfuck and had more in common with Return of the Living Dead and its mockery of horror and disregard for established genre rules hidden beneath a thin veneer of horror fandom than anything Romero ever did.

    That said, casting Tom Waits in the role of Radagast the Brown was a genius move.

    This cast is pretty crazy.

    This is like Woody Allen on sedatives (in a good way).

    The-Death-of-Dick-Long-movie-poster.jpg

    .....lol, the singer from Nickelback and his friend skinny Kenny Powers anonymously dump their other friend not-Kenneth Pinyan off at a hospital very badly injured in the early hours of the morning. What ensues is a small town clusterfuck police procedural where all the female characters honestly outshine the male ones (even the little girl who seems to be the finest investigative mind of the whole cast). My one beef is that the tone is a bit awkward to me, what would have made it better is going a bit darker/weirder or going the other way towards more comedic. Overall I enjoyed it though and in one scene at a bar "Lawnmower Man" by Gucci Mane is playing so... bonus points.

    I tried to watch Guns Akimbo but after about 20 minutes I tapped out. That shit sucked.

    About to check out:

    ^What's with the very phallic poster art? Surely can't have been unintentional... when combined with a title like "Dick Long"?!
