Love for zombies?

Since I’ve been living in the south side of town of San Antonio I go to the cinema more often, almost every Friday to be exact. If I’m not watching a movie at the theater I’ll rent a flick from the red box with my roommates. I’ve seen a variety of films this fall/winter from horror to action to comedies to bromances.
I’ve enjoyed films like VHS, the paranormal activity sequels, MIB3, the new lord of the rings film and many more. They were all good in their own way and some satisfied my taste for either violence or rude humor. Today I just wanted to point out that when people say Hollywood has ran out of ideas because of all the remakes and the decade late sequels or just putting out old films in 3D.
I wanna point out that some of the most recent films I’ve seen this week have been some of the most original flicks I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing. The first on the list is Django, it may be too racist for some to handle but I mean Tarento brought out the realism of how it was during the slave tone in the south and he did not hold back in the use of the N word stirring the audience’s feelings towards the words impact and how casually it was used.
The next movie I’ve been wanting to watch since it came out was Looper, I’m a huge Bruce Willis fan and I’ve always thought Joseph Gordon Levitt was awesome since third rock grim the sun back on the 90’s. This film had a very interesting plot and at first it was predictable but then shit got real towards the end and completely mind fucked me.
I just got done watching Warm Bodies, I’m trying to write this blog and enjoy my beer at the bar next to the Alamo Draft House and my friends think I’m tweeting and are making lose track of my thoughts. Its kinda working but thus movie is a must watch flick, the movie is very funny and has plenty of awkward moments that just about anyone can relate to. I’ve seen lots of zombie movies in my short 25 years of life prolly all of the good ones and I usually stop or walk away from the bad ones. This movie has lots of humor, plenty of romance and very minimal on the action so you won’t see too much of the same old crap like a five minute shoot out on unarmed enemies. The movie is also very sad in the beginning makes you feel lonely and what it would be like too see in the life of a living dead person.
Well that’s all I can say cause my phones about to get taken away.

Silent Hill Revelation 3D

So obviously almost everyone is looking for something scary or thrilling during October to get the best out of the Halloween festivities. The most common easy most disappointing way is to watch a horror flick, especially one that based on a game. Now originally I tend to give the films a chance while I’m watching cause I’m an adult now and let’s face it unless an Asian ghost that you can’t get rid of crawling out of an addict door is coming at me in 3D then I most likely won’t cry myself to sleep.
So I went to the City Base Cinema that’s a short walk away everything is new and still smells new, so no sticky floors. The flick I went to watch was the sequel to Silent Hill, which was successful in making me paranoid for a week if I was alone or in the dark, Silent Hill Revelation didn’t even have me looking over my shoulder. If you like to put yourself in the shoes of the victims while watching a horror film to get that feeling of what they may be experiencing, you’re quiet when they have to be quiet, you get ready to stop yourself from flinching because the monster or killer hadn’t had any camera time just because of how scary the unknown is, well I only felt the loneliness the world of Silent Hill is known for in it’s previous film and is a legend for amongst games which it

originated from. The actress was the thing that made my “Fear Boner” go away, I wasn’t feeling the fear. Usually when everything looks like it’s just gone to hell a person would assume that they would need themselves a good cry, run away from shit that may sound like a monster is hiding in the dark. I felt that there was no connection towards the audience, three actress didn’t looked scared of anything which would have to be made up with excessive story telling and expensive shitty CGI. The fact that I watched it in 3D didn’t help, very few of the scenes looked good and only two of the scenes in the entire movie made me appreciate the details of how scary manikins still are to me. The world of Silent Hill is still creepy as ever but it lacked the most important element a horror film needs making glad you’re just in a movie theater and not the person that’s in danger and it didn’t deliver.
