  1. The way I see BB3 is with good WOM it could get a 2.5X.....mayne 2.6. So 175-180 tops. That would be phenomenal!
  2. I don't think it was. He left the body in the car. A headless body of his sister. Sorry, that's lame and incredibly stupid....IMO.
  3. You can't tell me that my logic is faulty. It's my logic. mine. You might find it perfectly acceptable and I don't. I think it's one of the most ridiculous silliest things I've seen in any film. I know when I was a teenager that would not be something I would do. So it's okay if you think the logic is perfectly acceptable and fine. I have no problem with that. But I didn't buy it. And because I didn't it affected my enjoyment and acceptance of the movie.
  4. Sorry @Ipickthiswhiterose....maybe I misread your post....sometimes things can get lost in translation. Let me expand a bit on Hereditary. I assume everyone has seen it by now, but when I say it is silly and stupid, I'm within my rights to say that. One example that didn't resonate with me was when the kid drives home, his sibling loses their head in that accident and then the kid drives home and leaves the corpse in the car until the next day. I found this to be incredibly silly....and there were about 5 or maybe 7 instances in the movie with similar kind of logic. Babadook is even more egregious. But here's the thing....Friday the 13th Final Chapter is in my top ten horror films of all time and my top 50 films of all time. I think it's pretty much a perfect horror movie, up there with Halloween and Texas. But I also know some people think I'm crazy for thinking this and even more think the film is just trash. But it's all personal. I love the makeup and the Savini effects and I love Zito's keen eye to detail and Feldman's character and how innovative the deaths were and so much more. But again, it's all subjective. I love horror films that take risks. Angel Heart is one of my all time faves. I also loved Neon Demon and Hellraiser. I think Fulci is genius and Argento isn't far behind as well. So I think you and I are on the same page, just a post that might have been misconstrued.
  5. @Ipickthiswhiterose Are you seriously trying to give me a lesson on horror movies and what constitutes a horror movie? I mean no offense but I'm 48 years old and my favourite horror movies are the classics of the genre like Halloween and Nightmare on Elm Street in Texas chainsaw massacre and aliens and jaws and some of the Friday the 13th and so on. I kept Hereditary off because I hated it. It was silly and stupid and didn't appeal to me in the slightest. And you're basically saying in your post that the top 10 that I make should not be based on my personal opinion? isn't that what lists are all about is writing your personal opinion? And then telling everybody why your opinion is the way that it is? I'm not writing a top 10 list based on critics or other people or box office. The top 10 list is my opinion. You're more than welcome to write your own top 10 list and write it here as well. And I'd be glad to discuss your opinions with you.
  6. Are you trying to be a contrarian with every God damn post? Okay I appreciate that you're fairly new here but you really say a lot of ill-informed things.
  7. @LawrenceBrolivier thanks for reading the piece and for the kind words. I think more than any other genre horror has got to be the most subjective even more than comedy. What scares or entertains one person or talks to a person can mean nothing to somebody else. When you say that you don't think the film's I have listed here truly represent what has been going on with horror for the last decade, I disagree with you. And keep in mind this is a top 10 list. I had an incredibly difficult time narrowing this down to just 10 films as there are probably 40-50 good horror films over the last decade. Green Room, Don't Breathe, a quiet place, Train to Busan, Raw, Baskin, The Conjuring and so many others were in my top 25. I love differing opinions so thank you for yours and I would love to see what your top 10 list is as well.
  8. Maybe black movies like Madea or Just Mercy, sure. But Black Panther and ID4 and such, movies with a brand to them, don't really discriminate whether you're black white or Asian.
  9. This really sucks for me this year. I didn't get to see nearly as many films this year as I usually do. I guess that's what happens when life just gets busy. I will definitely get a list and before the end of the month but I don't know if I'm going to be able to see stuff like Marriage Story or Little women or parasite and so on.
  10. Of course I do. Babadook and Hereditary are two of the dumbest movies I've ever seen in my life.
