BeastDAnd the most non-intentionally funny movie of the year goes to...No, seriously, this movie sucked.The reason? It wasn't scary.Now, being a fan of found footage movies, and horror movies in general, Beast piqued my interest in previews. But, in reality, it wasn't scary. Instead, director Scott Charles Stewart throws cheap thrills and undeveloped characters. In fact, the characters are just stupid. It's like they want to actually be with the "beast." And the ending is just crap. I won't give any spoilers, but it was a wholly generic horror-movie twist ending.In the end, it's just a film fart; it's short and painful at first, but sooner or later you just forget about it.

ShockerC+Seeing previews for Scott Derrickson's Shocker were enthralling.But the final result?Confusing.It was very, very confusing. There were so many different plot elements that went into the story, it almost seemed like different movies. We see different murders involving TV repairman Horace Pinker. But there are so many different subplots surrounding the murders. Cramming the movie into an hour and a half doesn't help matters.

EscalatorC-The problem with Escalator?You don't know if it's joking or not.The title sounds dumb enough. When you think about it, it's a horror movie set on an escalator. What the hell? At least an elevator makes sense, but an escalator? The bad part is, it takes the stupid scenario too seriously. All in all, you have a generic horror movie that doesn't try.

The Red PyramidB+Making a film based on a book is hard. You need to make something that will appeal to both the fanbase and the general public. With The Red Pyramid, it follows that rule but becomes too loyal to its source material. Again, there is some great casting to fit the characters roles, and the CGI is great, but in turn, we have a drawn-out 2 1/2 hour story that feels like it drags on FOREVER. It seems like too much for one film, like more an HBO miniseries than a film. But than again, this is a film made for the big screen, so go see it on the big screen.

I thought you were going in order of release?

He probably realised that writing reviews would take too long for every single movie. Like most of us on here. :lol:Oh, and I'd like reviews for Worlds Apart, Oro, and Empty Hearth.
