I liked the old lady on the bus who was on in between stories.
As to the short stories, the last one was the best - the guy stuck in an elevator. That actually was scary.
Next best the guy in the apartment with the crevices.
Spider woman was a bit kitschy and the tourist in Hollywood was forgettable.
I paid about $5 for my copy, and I'm happy with that. Not amazing, and inconsistent, but worth a look if you like Japanese horror.

I liked that it was set in a small town in the 80's. I loved that they still had an actual video store and the main character was a horror nut who made figures. Laura Prepon was excellent and the actress who played her mother - wow, whacked out, but so convincing!
The ending was a bit of a letdown, but overall I really enjoyed this.

I really didn't like the characters of either Jon or Barbara here (how did they make Scarlett look so harsh and unattractive while supposedly portraying her as the "hot" girl?!). Jon was just a meathead dumbass addicted to watching porn. Not much else to him.
At least there was some growth to his character by the end.
Julianne Moore is great and looks amazing for her age, but that was a hard relationship to swallow too.
I don't know... It was something a bit different and it wasn't predictable, so full marks there.
I'm glad I saw it. However, I don't think I would watch it again.

Actually, it was pretty good. The kid who plays young Nigel is excellent (this coming from me - I normally find child actors cloying and can't wait for the older cast to take over, so that's how good this kid is). I was sorry when "older" Nigel took over.
Interesting look at a young boys childhood in the 60's, the setting was great, really convincing as being that era.
It's only 90 minutes long, so strange that it feels long, yet is rushed. The older Nigel bits only total 30 minutes and barely tell any story
I loathed mrs Potter as well. Probably only at the very end I felt any sympathy. Nigel does seem cruel by then. Then again. Patronising hag smoking all over the place, I don't know I would have wanted to stick with her either. Then again, 60's, hard life, hard to judge.
This was okay.

I don't really watch a lot of this genre, but I was interested to see Abigail Breslin in a more recent role.
I'm not sure the story was all that great, but I liked the setting and it had kind of a True Blood feel to it.
I feel like the characters learned nothing by the end, and I am a bit over stories about distributing drugs for a living, but I cared enough to see how it all worked out.
Wouldn't watch it again, though.
Got to admit, nearly gave up on this early on. Glad I persevered.… MoreGot to admit, nearly gave up on this early on. Glad I persevered.
Strange little movie about an unlikely pair getting together. I was so happy with the ending as I really feared it was going to turn out the other way and I si didn't want it to. Yes, this movie got me to care!

Scarlett Johansson plays a small but good role here, and Topher is likeable too.
Honestly pretty bad, even by Christmas movie standards.
With mum… MoreHonestly pretty bad, even by Christmas movie standards.
With mum away, three kids go to the mall to do Christmas shopping with their dad (Patrick Swayze).
The kids of course get separated from dad, there's a silly plot with a bag of counterfeit money, and some bumbling villains trying to get it back. And a campy Carmen Electra in a series of bad wigs.
The cool mall is the best part - beautiful decorations and a pool in the middle of winter.
Kind of made me want to go shopping when I think family values are probably the message it is trying to achieve!

Though it's about childhood obesity in the synopsis (on Netflix, anyhow), you could really relate this to any age group. A 40 year old obviously doesn't have Pizza Hut in his school canteen, but he's more than likely got it across the road, and he's just as likely to make a bad choice
Actually it opens your eyes to marketing and sugar addiction. I know it has inspired me to take the 10 day sugar free challenge (after I eat that box of Pop Tarts in the cupboard...).
Sugar has sadly had me. In its grip since I was quite young....
