You should see the original Gone in 60 Seconds Gone in 60 Seconds (1974) way better than the remake.
I loved In Bruges, but don't know if you'll like it.
I thought you said you enjoyed all of Step Brothers and that is was silly, but in a funny way? And i've got spare time now as i haven't got any homework so i'll watch In Bruges after i get soemthing to eat.

Children of the Corn 6/10 I love Stephen King's books, he's my favorite author, but most of the movies based on his books aren't that good. Books generally don't translate well into film, IMO. They lose something. And the better the book, the more disappointing the movie.

But you don't find movies where people are tortured and hacked to death a bit 'bizarre'.

You must be thinking of someone else. As I said before, the beginning when they hated each other wasn't bad, the movie went downhill from there. I just don't like Will Ferrell. His movies are usually just plain stupid.

Alligator (1980) 7/10. A great,fun slice of B-movie horror starring the always reliable Robert Forster(Jackie Brown,Lucky Number Slevin).I have a passion for B-movie schlock and this is a good one.

Surveillance (2008) I'm sure you can figure out who the writer/director's father is. As for the movie. I found it an enjoyable thriller about small town cops who get some nasty mutliple murders. The FBI get called in and it's a big surprise what happens next. 7/10

The Scream trilogy.

Still among the best horror films ever made. I love when filmmakers not only have the guts but also have the brains to make a film that works both as an individual creation as well as an intelligent commentary on the art form itself, and Wes Craven and the writers of the three Scream films managed to succeed on both levels not once, not twice, but three times, and three times in a row at that.

Still very impressive to me. All three are sharply-written and sharply-executed and are just plain fun.

I was presently surprised by this one and I like that actress Moss

I had a 3rd rewatch on District-9, movie goes quite quick and had to fill in the missing gaps 8/10

The Deer Hunter - De Niro , Walken , and Streep. Hadn't seen this one in years, left me feeling so many different emotions . I love it when that happens!
