Thanks!
Also, you’ve seen Birdemic, right?

Oh, absolutely. And after watching this I'm still not sure which one would be considered better. I wanna say Beaks, because at least they used real birds. But then again, they also stapled birds to actors in order to keep them in the shot, so I don't really think you could consider it all that "better".

Rewatched the original Dawn of the Dead last night. I opted for the European cut, overseen by Dario Argento.

Rewatched Steven Universe: The Movie tonight. In this animated musical set two years after the series, Steven returns to Earth but a new adversary threatens his happily ever after. Riding on a strange-looking injector filled with an evil pink substance, this new enemy reverts the Crystal Gems to how they were when they first emerged and strips Steven of most of his Gem powers, which doesn't bode well with the very Earth he sought to protect mere hours away from total annihilation.

Great, but strictly for SU fans.

New write-up of the week:

Ghost Keeper

Image

A group of snowmobile riders get lost and take refuge at an isolated, empty lodge while they wait for a blizzard to pass. But unbeknownst to them, the elderly caretaker is harboring a dark secret.

This is essentially a poor-man's take on The Shinning. And when I say poor, I mean they literally ran out of money half way through filming, and made the whole second half of the movie by the seat of their pants. Naturally, the plot after that point sort of went to shit. As did the inclusion of the film's main protagonist, the evil spirit known as the Wendigo, which ironically made it's portrayal more closely resemble the actual Wendigo legends. But unfortunately it also mucked up the set-up of the first half of the film. These poor filmmakers just couldn't win. It does have a pretty strong and effective atmosphere though, so it still ends up being pretty creepy, even if the plot sort of starts to fall apart by the second act. Oh well, still interesting.

I watched Kung Fu Hustle yesterday.

It was my friend's birthday and he wanted to show it to me.

Honestly, I thought it was okay. A couple of the jokes got a little snark from me and I thought the action was kind of neat, but that was about it. I think my friend may have over-hyped it a bit because I was a little bit disappointed in it.

My favorite part of the movie was probably the 1940's setting. I love the cars, outfits, Tommy Guns and look of the movie. That was neat to see.
