Title: The Autopsy of Jane Doe
Year: 2016
Director:
Rating: Rated R : Bloody Horror Violence, Unsettling Grisly Images, Graphic Nudity, and Language
Length: 87 Min.
Video: Widescreen 2.40:1
Audio: English: DTS-HD Master Audio: 5.1
Subtitles: English, Spanish











Stars:
Brian Cox
Emile Hirsch
Ophelia Lovibond











Plot:
It's just another night at the morgue for a father (Brian Cox, Trick 'r Treat, Zodiac) and son (Emile Hirsch, Lone Survivor, Killer Joe) team of coroners, until an unidentified, highly unusual corpse arrives. Discovered buried in the basement of the home of a brutally murdered family, the young Jane Doe — eerily well-preserved and with no visible signs of trauma — is shrouded in mystery. As they work into the night to piece together the cause of her death, the two men begin to uncover the disturbing secrets of her life. Soon, a series of terrifying events make it clear: this Jane Doe may not be dead. The latest from Troll Hunter director Andre Ovredal is a scarily unpredictable, supernatural shocker that never lets up. This chiller also stars Ophelia Lovibond (Guardians Of The Galaxy) and Michael McEhatton (Game Of Thrones).

My Review:
So, i almost never write reviews anymore, but some movies is just have to say a thing or two about. Good or bad. This movie i've heard some real great things about and really enjoyed the trailer, so when i found it for under $8 it was a no brainer. And i watched the movie last night. And the movie is actually brilliant. Really loved it, the story is real simple, but holy hell. Some awesome moments trough-out. A simple but real good with some amazing spots trough-out. Its a must watch for all horror fans!

My Review:
So, Fast & The Furious has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. Always enjoyed the movies, the car chases, cool cars etc. But the latest movies has turned in to pure action movies with less and less car scenes. Still good movies, dont get me wrong. But not "a car" movie franchise anymore. Still some cool moments here and there. But for the last two movies (9/10) i hope they will go back to what they started with. Would be awesome. But all in all, its a movie you have to watch anyways. And i enjoyed it tho.

Title: Get Out
Year: 2017
Director: Jordan Peele
Rating: Rated 15 : Strong Violence, Gore, Sex References, Language
Length: 104 Min.
Video: Widescreen 2.40:1
Audio: English: DTS-HD Master Audio: 5.1, Spanish: DTS: 5.1, French: DTS: 5.1, German: DTS: 5.1, Italian: DTS: 5.1

Allison Williams
Catherine Keener
Bradley Whitford
Caleb Landry Jones
Marcus Henderson











Plot:
When Chris (Daniel Kaluuya), a young African-American man, visits his white girlfriend's (Allison Williams) family estate, he becomes ensnared in the more sinister, real reason for the invitation. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined. This speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and The Gift) and the mind of Jordan Peele (Key & Peele) is equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary.

My Review:
Woah, that was kinda intense and a bit different then i expected it to be.. I pre-ordered it a while back after watching the thrailer, and i found it interesting. The movie got a creepy mood trough-out the whole movie, right off the bat you know something is real wrong in a creepy good way. And then all the freaky stuff starts to happen, and the movie takes us trough some cool twists and turns i didnt see coming. For me this was a real great horror\thriller with a twisted but good story. All in all, this is a must watch! Was much better then i expected it to be! And this blurayset comes with some great extras aswell.

I liked Get Out very much when I saw it in the theater earlier this year. I expected a rather different conclusion at the end, but not getting what I expected is obviously half the fun. It had some great social commentary wrapped inside the horror film, too, which I thought was done rather well and very much a current affair.

So, i dont write much anymore, but some movies i have to say a thing or two about. This one i first at the movies, and really enjoyed it. And ofc bought the bluray when that came around, and now i just watched the 4K version. And i have to say that the transfer was real good, the picture and sound was amazing. And the movie is a cool one too, a good performance by Will Smith as always. For those who have the 4K system, this is a must have.

I know alot of people wont agree with me on this, but this was one of the better horror movies i've seen in a while! Great moments trough-out. And just a creepy (in a good way) trough-out. And with this premium set you got a thon of interviews with both Stephen King and the people who made the movie. All in all, this was a great movie! Is a must have if you ask me.

Title: Dogs
Year: 1976
Director: Burt Brinckerhoff
Rating: 15
Length: 90 Min.
Video: Widescreen 1.78:1
Audio: English: PCM: Mono
Subtitles: English











Stars:
David McCallum (1933)
Sandra McCabe
George Wyner
Eric Server
Linda Gray
Dean Santoro











Plot:
In the wake of JAWS (1975) audiences were treated to all number of nature-run-amok movies - from Jeff Lieberman's killer worm outing SQUIRM (1976) to the national park nightmare GRIZZLY (1976). Equally quick off-the-bat was DOGS, also unleashed in 1976, and treating terror-hungry audiences to an outbreak of canine carnage in a small California town. Featuring the thespian talents of British actor David McCallum (THE GREAT ESCAPE), the action comes thick and fast as 'man's best friend' is turned against its owner and chows down on human flesh - in the streets, in the corridors of a university and even in the shower... no one is safe from being mauled by a pack of blood thirsty four-legged fiends! Best compared to Stephen King's gut-wrencher CUJO (1983), few fans of 42nd Street ferocity will deny that DOGS is a B-movie masterpiece that you would be barking mad to miss!

My Review:
There are some movies i feel i have to say a few things about, and this one is one of them! Just watched it recently, havent watched it before. And wow, what an' amazing movie this actually was! Just a great horror movie trough-out, great moments trough-out. And they managed even to make the puddles scary. And even tho i havent watched the DVD or VHS, i have to say that this bluray version is just amazing with the upscaled picture, widescreen and amazing sound. Not a perfect movie, but a really really good one! Really happy i got this one! Check it out my fellow movie\horror lovers!

Title: Night of the Living Dead: The Criterion Collection
Year: 1968
Director: George A. Romero
Rating: 15
Length: 96 Min.
Video: Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio: English: DTS-HD Master Audio: Mono, Commentary: Dolby Digital: Mono, Commentary: Dolby Digital: Mono
Subtitles: English











Stars:
Duane Jones
Judith O'Dea
Karl Hardman
Marilyn Eastman
Keith Wayne
Judith Ridley











Plot:
Shot outside Pittsburgh on a shoestring budget, by a band of filmmakers determined to make their mark, Night of the Living Dead, directed by horror master George A. Romero, is a great story of independent cinema: a midnight hit turned box-office smash that became one of the most influential films of all time. A deceptively simple tale of a group of strangers trapped in a farmhouse who find themselves fending off a horde of recently dead, flesh-eating ghouls, Romero's claustrophobic vision of a late-1960s America literally tearing itself apart rewrote the rules of the horror genre, combining gruesome gore with acute social commentary, and quietly broke ground by casting a black actor (Duane Jones) in its lead role. Stark, haunting, and more relevant today than ever, Night of the Living Dead is back.

My Review:
Woah, what an amazing blurayset. The movie itself is ofcourse amazing, and the picture quality is amazing aswell. A great B\W zombie horror movie, a cult classic if you ask me. And with this amazing Criterion set you get so many amazing special features aswell, one extra disc with just great extras! All in all great experience! A must have really. And i'm real glad i bought it. And for only £14 it was a steal if you ask me!

So, anyone who knows me knows i really like history and movies that are based on a true story. And this is the\a story about the watergate scandal and we get to see the person behind 'Deep throat' I've seen alot of movies and read alot of stuff about the Watergate and Nixon ofc, but this movie shine a different kind of light on the story from a POV i havent seen before. A great cast who works really well together, and the story is real good and interesting, keeps me glued to the tv trough-out. A must watch\have movie for you collectors and history buffs out there (just like me)











My Rating:






And if any of you guys have any good history movies to recommand etc, i apprecite it :D

History movies or movies based on a true story ... Well, I can think of a couple (!)

Thare are, of course, tons of movies about World War II. I know you have Max Manus, but I don't see The Heroes of Telemark in your collection. Sure it is a bit fictionalized, but it is after all an important piece of Norwegian history, so ... ?

I don't see either of the big "Bridge" movies; A Bridge Too Far and The Bridge at Remagen. The latter is kind of interesting, because the history of the movie is almost as fascinating as the history in the movie.

A movie that I would definitely recommend is The Missiles of October about the Cuba crisis in 1962, or the remake Thirteen Days with Kevin Costner.

If you're interested in older US history, there is always The Alamo with John Wayne (or the remake with Billy Bob Thornton, although I personally prefer the original). I saw The Alamo on my 14th birthday and was really hooked on the story, so I may be a bit biased on that one. I also had the good fortune of being sent to San Antonio on business trips when I worked for Datapoint (which was headquartered there), so I had a chance to see the real Alamo, in what is now downtown San Antonio.

Or for something lighter, Anna and The King [of Siam] or its musical version The King and I.

So many films, so little time ...  :)

Hm, thanks for your recommandations :D I got Max Manus, really loved that movie when i saw it the first time. Havent watched it in ages, dunno why. Been thinking about rewatching it for ages. Maby i should, The Heroes of Telemark. Never seen it, something i have to put on my list ofc! And when it comes to A bridge too far and The Bridge at Remagen, i was sure i had it in my collection :o Thats embarresing. Thats two movies i have to order!
I love older US history. Just finished with Killer Angels (the book) a book about the us civil war. Really enjoyed that one. The Alamo i've heard alot of good things about. And i have to agree with you, i will have to say too many films and way to little time! I spend too much time at work i think!  ;) hehe
