Movie Hangover! Ju-on: The Curse

Hello!

So yes, I watched the original with English subs! Here’s the link for Youtube.

Tamed poster.

So the movie was just so much more intense the remake. Naturally. But as a fearer of The Grudge anyway, this was an unpleasant, even-in-daylight rewatch.

NOPE NOPE NOPE.

One of the things that really stood was the audio. (The movie was made in the early 2000, looked like it still didn’t know it’s importance in the world so it was not that great quality/acting at points.)

The audio really was key. The story–the freaking movie starts with the most disturbing ten minutes of horror I’ve seen in awhile.

No comment.

Rage, horror, and mystery knot into a tight little fuck-you. The story is split into sections but the disturbing is continuous. So if you’re into foreign horrors, you have to put this on queue.

Movie Hangover: The Maze Runner

Hi, everyone!

Sorry this is a) the first post in a long time and b) so long overdue.

So back when it came out, I got to see The Maze Runner. Busy with life and work and blah, I committed book lover sin and bought the book but didn’t read it before watching the movie.

I am not sure if it would have made a big difference. I hated the movie.

“Get ready to run”=They warned me.

It was vague. It went back on its word and worse. The worst thing in any story is wasting the audience’s time by being a long, uninteresting set up for Movie/Book/Story Number Two.

Will there even be a number two? Fuck. There is.
Because I really don’t see anything new about this story or why it should keep going. Without reading the book, I have no idea what the story is really about.

I got back pain from watching this. I wish I was lying but I slumped and fidgeted enough to make my back sore.

When my movie-soul-mate sister and I saw the trailer some time ago, we were excited. We thought there was going to be a live action Attack on Titan (!!!) but it was an equally thrilling trailer, about a creepy stone maze, trapped teen boys (for those of you who haven’t watched/read, it’s really not what you’re thinking) and walls so high, they nearly blot out the sun.

Even remembering it that way is helping the healing. But it wasn’t.

I won’t list all the things that I found cringeworthy, but one of the things that really made me go wtf was naming a group W.C.K.D. As if anyone in their right mind would trust someone named that way/obviously.

I hope that Number Two is a lot better than Number One.

Update: Cinema Sins pretty much said everything I or anyone else could have said about the film. Enjoy. He’s funny as f*ck.
