Quote from: NerveGas on July 11, 2022, 07:46:11 AMI agree. Great movie. Seems like a lot of people expected body horror. With this one you get a lot of body, but not so much horror. I would agree in many ways it's a return to form, but by no means a rehash of ideas or some nostalgia ploy. I have a ton of thoughts about this film, but will keep it brief. Went into it with no knowledge of the plot, so perhaps that shaped my opinion a bit, but I felt like it went in a very unexpected direction much to my personal benefit.

This film is not meant to be an entertaining or escapist horror, but it cleverly manipulates viewer's feelings and when the credits rolled, I was genuinely upset of what I just saw. George Sluizer's Spoorloos left me with a similar feeling when I saw it years ago. All the small details seem more disturbing when you know the ending. It's best to see without watching the trailer or knowing too much. Great use of music as well.
Quote from: Manhog_84 on November 20, 2022, 06:48:24 PM.I also went to see Terrifier 2 at the local movie festival. Everyone's praising it but it's boring as fuck. Art the Clown would be a great villain, but I feel it's wasted in this franchise. The comic book violence doesn't work very well because there is no build-up, no tension, no characters, shitty plot and overall bad direction and the movie is one hour too long.
Quote from: Atrophist on December 05, 2022, 09:38:10 PMWatched Tár theother day. Went into it almost completely blind, the only thing I knew was that it dealt with classical music and Mahler (whose music I love) would be one of the composers featured. I was prepared for the usual tale of a woman effortlessly outdoing all those dumb white men on every front. Whatever this film is, it's not that. The film is almost three hours long and I spent much of the first hour wondering, what the hell is going on in this movie? Even after the main plot emerges, there are still plenty of wtf moments. I rarely re-watch films so soon, but this one is going to have to be an exception. Not everything works, but in a film that is this long and ambitious that's to be expected really. I'd recommend this to anyone in our milieu.
