One from the Master of Horror

Image from
R, 1976

   A dark foreboding leads to horrible tragedy. This film will really make you think and creep you out. A very sad and startling story. Flawless acting and the perfect horror story makes this one of the most horrible movies of all time, in the best sense of the word.
   I highly recommend to all horror fans, and especially to those who've liked another of Stephen King's films. This is by far the best horror film I've ever seen with his name on it. This is the reason Stephen King is called the master of horror. This is a magnificent masterpiece.

I suggest this for only adults, as there are fully naked girls in the second scene. Also, blood and horror that children need not witness.

One for Family Night

The Neverending Story 
PG, 1984

My short and sweet review:
   This movie is a classic. A great film with a wonderful storyline and characters. If you're looking for an epic adventure, this is perfect. I highly recommend for any family night.

My very short synopsis: 
   A book-loving boy, while running from a few bullies, stumbles into an old book store, where he finds a book that he can really escape into. 

The Amazon blurb: 
   "A boy discovers a book that transports him to a fantasy world whose edges reach back into his (own) mundane existence..."

Where you can get it:
   I got lucky and found it on VHS at a half-price book store in Columbus for 50 cents, never opened and the faded original purchase sticker still on the unbroken plastic. It's on DVD and Blue-ray and available via Amazon, and it's also on Amazon instant video here for only $1.99 (for 48-hour rental).

Have you already seen it? Let me know what you think in the comments below!

This movie is rated PG for a little bit of blood. Also, death happens to a few. Just fyi, for those of you who are overprotective of your kids.

One for the Gods

Cabin in the Woods

R, 2012

   I didn't have very high expectations of this movie, I must admit, but it totally surprised me. Right after watching, I thought, "Wow!" and listened to the music that played during the credits. It's a more sinister Hunger Games. It's horrible right up until the end, when it starts to make sense and ends up... well, no spoilers here. If you like gory horror movies with a little bit of mythology thrown in, this is a five-star movie that you'll love.

This movie is not for children, thus the R rating.

One for Girls

Coyote Ugly 

PG13, 2000

   I've seen this movie countless times and own it on dvd. Most movies after a few watches gets old, but this one doesn't. It's great. A classic. I highly recommend for anyone who likes music, dance, or just good movies about rising from the dust and overcoming obstacles. A five star movie all around.

I don't suggest this movie for anyone under the age of fourteen due to a sensual scene and those of dancing on a bar. There are also other elements to consider.

A Tragic Story for Adults

Legends of the Fall

R, 1994

     This was a great movie. Though it's more than two hours, it didn't really feel like it. I did know it was from a book without looking, just because how the story's told and everything. Brad Pitt is a tragic hero in this film, and he's a good one. Definitely worth watching at least once. I recommend for anyone who's old enough to appreciate the adult content and who enjoys a good story, with its ups and downs. This one's going on my shelf.

This movie is rated R for multiple reasons. I do not suggest for anyone less than the age of eighteen. Make sure you watch this before even thinking about letting your kids.

One for the Women of History

The Duchess 

PG-13, 2008

     This movie wasn't the most interesting movie I have ever seen, but it was very well done and worth the time to watch. The acting, costumes, story line and everything was great. I just felt trapped with the main character and wish there would have been some way to live happily then. I think that was one of the points of the movie, to show how women used to be treated. I highly recommend this movie to any who like historical dramas and women's issues in society. 

I wouldn't suggest this movie for anyone less than the age of 15, due to the mild sex scene between the Duchess and her out-of-wedlock lover. I don't consider this movie for immature audiences, due to the lack of interest I believe they would have for it.

The Amityvlle Horror

R, 2005
     Personally, I thought this movie was very well done and enjoyed it. I recommend this film to anyone who enjoys good movies, specifically ones that are a little scary.

Concerning content and why this movie is rated R: the f-word is spoken multiple times and there is a mild sex scene.
