@mr-k,

Yeah, I mean, if you want something mindlessly entertaining, I'm sure that Machete Kills could fill that void. But if you want something more meaningful and affecting, Prisoners will do the trick.

As for Captain Phillips... Yup... That's kinda what I believe the director was going for... It's actually a very dull movie with a single "neat-o" moment at the very end.

Thanks for reading, bud!

@bawnian-dexeus,

Haha, yeah, man! Right after I posted I saw that you dug it too. Really affecting film. Great stuff. This is the kind of flick I'd buy.
@mr-k,

Well, this reimagining might disappoint you then...

@mr-k,

That's about what I heard from Runner Runner as well, good to see that the consensus was accurate. Yeah, I just didn't have interest in that one and Timberlake appeared as though it was his first time acting.

As for Machete Kills, I'm gonna hold off for a bit as the whole schtick with it all has kinda worn off for me. As for Gravity, I'll wait on that one too, though it does look good, it also looks like it utterly duplicates what the Dead Space videogames did so well.

@skywise,

Thanks, man!

Yeah, remakes tend to be immensely hit and miss/gratuitous, but sometimes, just sometimes, they work. I believe that Jim Mickle knew the problem with such problematic remakes, and thus, only maintained the bones of the original plot. Meanwhile, the setting, tone, visuals, direction--nearly everything--was altered. Not to make it more approachable, but I believe, for him to make his OWN adaptation of what came before. 90% of it works, but the ending creates more problems than closures.

As for Stake Land, I do agree that there were stupid bits (I for one hated the one-lining spewing end-villain of the whole thing. A sentient, powerful, bloodthirsty vampire is terrifying on its own--it doesn't need to growl stupid lines of "intimidation"). Even still, my gripes with it were minor bumps considering all it did right amidst a torrent of sh*tty horror movies.
@mr-k,

Thanks, bud! And I saw Cloudy 2 which wasn't bad, but I haven't had much stake in Runner Runner; the other critics out there are ripping it apart right now too. Did you like it?
@ed-wood,

Thanks, man! Yeah, Stake Land is my third favorite vampire film next to 30 Days of Night and Near Dark.

"... A horror film that's splattered with the best bits of the horror genre, yet mortally wounded by an ending so poorly realized that it hinders everything which came before it..."
