Movies I've got piling up in my room...

And I can't decide what next to watch, dammit!

From library:

Tokyo Majin Vol 3 (I don't really remember why I got this, I think I thought it was something else)

Restored Metropolis

Dog Soldiers (Also don't remember why. Might've had something to do with Kevin McKid (whose name is hilariously mispelled on the cover), but I think I was searching for Citizen Dog at the time)

This Property Is Condemned (Natalie Wood and Scout from To Kill A Mockingbird!)

My Neighbor Totoro (my soon-to-be first encounter with Miyazaki)

From cheap buying, contest, etc...

Gore House Greats Collection (a collection of 60s-70s, crappy horror movies that I'll probably make a series of)

Once (again)

Masters of Mayhem (Bela Lugosi, Christopher Lee, and Vincent Price, yo. Like, who decided to only sell it for two bucks?)

Shaft (kindly awarded to me by El Gringo)

Following (ditto)

Lethal Weapon (ditto)

Layer Cake (God, I want to punch Sierra Miller in the face on that blasted cover...)

Strangers on a Train (From (or funded by) Castor after I kicked everyone's collective commenting asses)

Pi (ditto)

Jack Nicholson Cult Classics (Little Shop of Horrors! The Terror! Hell's Angels on Wheels! These are the things I get excited about these days!)

Day of the Dead (remake)

Bela Lugosi: King of the Undead (featuring White Zombie, The Corpse Vanishes, and One Body Too Many)


The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys

That's it, all. Have a nice day.

Please watch Once or Strangers on a Train... with Election as an alternate.

I remember This Property Is Condemned being a little bad, but I also remember liking it...all I remember is Natalie Wood was supposed to be some "bad" girl. Watch it and remind me.

Yes, to Election.

Layer cake is good as I recall, but I wouldn't start your miyazaki jounrey with my neighbor totoro. I did, but I was also 8 at the time. It's just kind of plotless and adorable and easier to enjoy once you've seen stuff like Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away or Castle In the Air

You can't watch Dog Soldiers on your own.

You must be with a group of friends (preferably with one who's quite sensitive to on-screen violence and gore) and you must have some beer wih it.

It's the rules of Neil Marshall films.

Dog Soldiers is fairly okay as Neil Marshall films go. It's probably the best of the bunch, and succeeds in a sort of a cheap B-movie sort of way. Just stay the hell away from Doomsday. Trust me on this.
