    Watch "Zombies" with Tony Todd. Its actually pretty good. It got low rating on IMDB though. I think they gave like 2.8 or something.

    So last night, my wife dozed off on the couch and I started watching The Hitcher. She wakes up shortly after and I'm like, uh, you might want to go in the bedroom because this is pretty violent. I told her I saw it when I was really young and don't remember a whole lot of details but it's regarded as a classic and I want to see it again. She decides to stick it out.

    We got to the semi truck scene and she starts going on about, I can't believe your parents let you watch this... like she was genuinely disappointed. The movie is really twisted but I grew up in the height of the horror genre. Every 7 year old boy (and most girls) had seen the F13th series or Nightmare On Elm Street, which are far more gory and twisted but the terror that Hauer made you feel (no matter how implausible the act was) really grabbed you on a different level. On one hand you say JFC this movie is absurd and then on the other hand you say holy crap this guy is a lunatic, just lurking in the background at all times to continue his torment. He just magically pops up in that family's station wagon kissing on their little daughter and they're all having a gay old time after having just picked him up. No motive is ever established for his rampage. He just wants somebody to stop him.

    I think that's why the movie works so well despite being shlock.

    Renegades was pretty good. Its the new one with navy seals diving for sunken nazi gold. Its not the old movie Renegades with Kiefer Sutherland and Lou Diamond Phillips. I'd give both movies about a 7.

    Rutger Hauer was downright scary.

    American Made - 7.5/10

    Based on true events. Tom Cruise is really good here as Barry Seal, the ex-TWA pilot who became a drug smuggler for the CIA in the '80's.

    What a story!

    Storm of the Century (Stephen King) - 7.5/10

    Only issue is the pacing in the first half. The movie is 4 hours long. Second act really picks up.

    Just twice. One time kinda in the background at a friend's house a month ago or so and once in the theater a few days ago.

    I highly recommend seeing it in the theater if you get an opportunity. Seeing it on the big screen with a packed crowd makes it even more ridiculous and funny.
