Movie list – July 2010 | July 31, 2010

Here’s a list of the movies I watched this month, with a 1 or 2 line commentary on each.

88) The Graves – 6/10 (7.1) – Enjoyable, not terribly unique; pretty girls in a deadly situation. However, seems like they tried to do too much and it suffers from that.
89) Dread – 6/10 (7.4) – Adapted from Clive Barker short story; more of a suspense/thriller/psychodrama, until the end, where it jumps with both boots into horror. Good, but not as good as they were trying for.
90) The Man From Earth – 6/10 (7.4) – Very talky movie, if you don’t like talky movies, do not watch. If you do, you’ll probably enjoy.
91) Back to the Future – 10/10 (7.5) – Classic.
92) Back to the Future II – 8/10 (7.5) – A fun sequel.
93) Back to the Future III – 7/10 (7.5) – A good ending.
94) Nine Dead – 6/10 (7.5) – Way better than I expected, it was enjoyable, creepy and kept you guessing.
95) The Reeds – 6/10 (7.8) – Would’ve been better if they went for the straight ending.
96) Predators – 8/10 (7.9) – I enjoyed it. It wasn’t a great movie, but it wasn’t trying to be.
97) Kill Theory – 5/10 (7.10) – Kinda meh.
98) Lake Mungo – 10/10 (7.11) – Totally impressed me, way better than I remotely expected. Creepy and scary at times.
99) Skjult (Hidden) – 8/10 (7.19) – Well done, creepy Swedish horror movie.
100) The Girl Who Played With Fire – 8/10 (7.21) – An excellent follow-up to THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. Do not watch this first, you HAVE to watch all three in sequence.
101) Meadowoods – 7/10 (7.22) – Totally didn’t expect this to be as good as it was. I got it as a free rental. Watch the alternate ending, too.
102) Yes Man – 5/10 (7.23) – Bland. Not bad, but not good either.
103) Inception – 8/10 (7.23) – Excellent movie.
104) The Yes Men Fix The World – 7.10 (7.25) – Fascinating stuff, interesting concepts.
105) The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest – 7/10 (7.25) – A good ending to the Millennium Trilogy.
106) Armored – 5/10 (7.26) – Barely enjoyable to be honest.
107) Pelham 1-2-3 – 7/10 (7.27) – No, I’ve never seen the original; I want to, now. This was very good.
108) Repo Men – 9/10 (7.27) – Howcome nobody’s talked about this movie? I thought it was great.
109) Full Metal Jacket – 10/10 (7.28) – One of my all time favourite movies. Very powerful stuff. Totally forgot Adam Baldwin was Animal Mother. Great characters.
110) The Good German – 6/10 (7.31) – Neat concept, decent execution. Strange to see Spider-Man as a little prick.

That’s it in a nut-shell. If you haven’t already, go see my 3 guest-post blogs about the AfterDark HorrorFest IV films over on Glenn Walker’s WELCOME TO HELL pop culture blog.
