An unaged man without a memory is sent by a secret multifaith order of monster hunters as the last hope of a lineage doomed to purgatory unless they slay the lord of all vampires.

Not a great or bad movie, but still good enough to be worth watching. It's mostly interesting because of its main character, and the rest of it is piecemeal and without particular substance.

I think this movie was my initial introduction to Kate Beckinsale, and it turns out she's a lot hotter in my memory than in this actual movie. Maybe she was better-presented in the next movies of hers that I saw after this.

Two friends go on vacation, with one of them seriously ill and possibly dying, but a new illness progresses.

How do I describe this without spoiling it? I know a lot of people don't like found-footage movies, but this one is quite good as it actually shows everything.

A girl, hiding in a church, writes a letter to the police who, without evidence, raise a stink.

I couldn't get half way through this. Not only do the various genres in this movie not interest me, but it highlights "listen and believe". I fucking guarantee that's why Emma Watson is in this.

A genius-recluse works on artificial intelligence, and brings in a young man to test his most recent success.

I don't know what it says about me, but I find this movie innocent, beautiful, and deeply disturbing. I honestly don't think it would be moral of me to recommend this to anyone except as a sort of cautionary tale of the inevitable.

Of Silence (2014) poster

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1405413/

A story about a man being a man.

A man, like all men, must "man up" instead of showing weakness. Not allowed to talk about his feelings, or ask for help, he is never diagnosed with mental disorders. When his wife dies, he is never offered and can't seek counselling. When he spirals into depression he cannot talk about it or seek help. When his disorders flare up, he again cannot ask for help. His bills unpaid, he's still required to suffer quietly until he is driven to suicide or is thrown into the streets. He can't even talk to his family. He is a man who must be a man.

A movie with no characters, no plot and no purpose. Though I wonder if it intended it, this movie supremely highlights the silent suffering men live with.

A mockumentary about four vampire flatmates in New Zealand.

Bad. This is supposed to be comedy. I'm not laughing. From what little I saw, I doubt it will get any better.

An explorer ship bumps into aliens.

AVOID AVOID AVOID.

Do not watch this, especially if you are a fan of the alien movie franchise.

Once I re-watch this I'll add some more notes.

Alien - Resurrection (1997) dvd image

The survivors of an alien attack struggle to stay alive aboard their research vessel, and learn its true purpose.

Perhaps because Alien 3 (1992)[doesn't exist] wasn't as amazing as the first two, Alien: Resurrection wasn't that impactful. I think it was a cop-out of an odd reboot.

  • This is properly titled Alien: Resurrection

  1. Alien - (1979 movie)
  2. Aliens - (1986 movie)
  3. Alien 3 - (1992 movie)
  4. Alien - Resurrection - (1997 movie)
