The Lost Boys 3: The Thirst
Undeniably corny vampire movie, which is expected. Corey Feldman, although I adore him, clung to his acting skills when he was young, but completely lost them as he aged. The dialogue drags on in places, but it has its amusing moments. There are many unnecessary flashbacks to the first movie, which is a cult classic and shouldn't be touched upon in this inherently campy threequel. The action is much less than the second one, which I would recommend for a laugh.
Final note- while the vampires look fairly cool, they are all pretty weak. You get your ass handed to you by Corey Feldman and you're asking to be degraded .
I enjoyed this movie. I've never sat through any of the previous Predator flicks, apart from AvP, which is certainly a sad fate.
Adrien Brody is a weird 'bad ass' for me. He makes it work, but it takes a bit of getting used to. His character's development was rushed after a point, but gives off the illusion that it isn't. There's a comic relief character, who I liked immensely. I would have liked to see more character development for him, or at least to properly hear it.
Anyway, there was backstory and allusion to the first Predator movie, which was neat. The aesthetic and action was intact. It was overall a good balance of what was needed. I also liked the ending, which I will not detail in the slightest. I'm sure it can procure a love/hate relationship.
The Walking Dead
While this is a TV series, it's about Zombies and, oh man, do I love me some Zombies!
I've been feeling an empty hole in my life and I couldn't figure out why until I saw a preview. The first episode was great. You can tell that there is enough time for the series to let the emotions run high. They can develop characters, feed into their feelings, and still maintain enough gore and action to satisfy passing zombie fans. The atmosphere is awesome too. There are so many moments that feel critical, but don't become cheapened by shock value.
I won't blather on more about that since it's new, but I'd say go download it or something.
Beyond that, Cillian Murphy is .
