I liked it - Hollywood or not.

How was it? I saw it as a trailer recently and it was hard to believe that it was actually being made, right after Shirow's Ghost in the Shell.

And about the 2017 GITS film, I also do not care about the Hollywood/Live-Action adaptation of it, even if it has a bad depiction, I could still enjoy its visuals, but the movie's "future" setting looked like a circus, I can't stand this seizure-inducing night lights/holograms everywhere cyberpunk trend, at least the original manga and 1995 movie kept that future somewhat believable.

Kids "entertainment" is starting to become indistinguishable from porn intros.

If you liked 2017 GITS (which I personally did), you might want to give it a try. The future setting in this one is a tad different.

Just finished The Apostle on Netflix and actually really liked it. Similar time piece in some ways to The VVitch but even far strung in occultist and fictitious story writing. Main character is the same actor from Legion and he does a great job. This is NOT a witch trial movie but borrows heavily on the ideas and premise of the time. Not sure how to describe in more detail without giving away too much but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

A Nightmrae On Elm Streeet VI- Ferddty's Ddaed. Sixth movie!

By this point the series was getting so worn out and bad it actually kind of got better again. It goes for the comedy and B-class entertainment value without much shame, reducing Krueger into a murderous joker who now thinks that every town has an Elm Street. The once again nameless cast are witnesses to the the fact that they couldn't even get freelancer scraps to star in this movie.

This time the new kid is one of the few, or only, survivor of the Krueger holocaust. In the beginning, he dreams about his house falling. Otherwise a nice intro but you wouldn't be able to stand firmly on the floor. Actors are credited during the sequence.

Shon Greenblatt!
Lezlie Deane!
Ricky Dean Logan!
Breckin Meyer!
Yaphet Kotto!
Music - Brian May!

Greenblatt? Dean(e)? BRECKIN? What is that? I could have been in this movie with my own name and feel right at home. Who's Brian May? Some nice tunes in this movie. Then the New Kid rolls down a gentle hill for about a minute, seemingly having a blast hurling his body down the 20 degree slope. Freddy rams him with a dream truck and sends him back into the real world with a mission or something.

We are told that Freddy has a daughter, out of nowhere, and this movie being this movie, the culprit is not far away. The plot had something to do with the daughter I'm sure. There's a gang of new kids too, prepared for the coming apocalypse that is the early 90's mainstream television fashion and together with the daughter, now a grown woman, they embark on a journey to do something.

I'm glad the kids are no longer awkwardly mismatched best friends, but a dysfunctional small group who bicker and argue in an attempt to keep their cool factor higher and not get close enough to care. It was the way of the 90s. The kickboxing chick is especially resentful and is a screaming image of that I can take care of myself type. This is explained with her abusive stepdad, but I think she'd be like that anyway. Of course they all try to look after each other because family or whatever, but you gotta keep your distance you know... and not lose your cooool. You hate but you love.

Oh yeah Yaphet Kotto is that black guy you've seen in 80s trash films. He's pretty good in what he does. The lead actress who plays the daughter is there to provide some looks but she mostly looks good when the camera is a fair distance away. Closer up you become aware of her inherent butterfaceness. It's like one of those moments on the street when you're like hey that's a nice body you got there oh shit it's a dude.

Now we also get to learn more about why Freddy is. In a nutshell, just before he was killed in the fire, these ancient dream demons offered him a deal and granted him immortality, but only in dreams. They seeked the most evil men and I guess Krueger with his child-slaying past was a fair candidate. Of course his father was a drunken bastard who gave him regular beatings, so essentially Freddy was a creation of unjust circumstances, an evil bred of evil, and never really had a chance. So the evildoer is the victim after all! Ah yes, this would totally fly with 2019 leftists. Child molesters are also victims of poor backgrounds, they say. Well, I would still take a hundred Kruegers into my home over any muslim, this day and the next, forever.

So while the cast is unremarkable, there are some unexpected cameos here. First, we get the then coupled Tom Arnold and Roseanne Barr as simple townsfolk. Then we get Johnny Depp knocked in the face with a frying pan, and Alice Cooper as Freddy's dad! This is relatively uncommon to say the least. Edward Scissorhands taken out by Freddy Krueger though... hmm.

Also, while the horror is almost entirely phased out, Freddy's Dead does spend time in dream world a lot just like the previous movie did. The added wackiness helps and there are some genuinely entertaining things happening in the dream sequences. Freddy has also gained some authority over the real world because the gang can't find their way out of a small town, always ending up where they started. I like how they also switch drivers to eliminate the female driver from the possible causes. There's a video game scene which is pretty elaborate considering this was a low budget film that had long before exhausted its best ideas. The few there were.

Krueger is brought into the real world again for the final showdown and for an eternal tormentor he does have an awful lot of trouble fighting a girl when he's without the homefield advantage. Accompanied with a stupid one liner about father's day, he's killed, but according to the rules, remains no less immortal in dreams.

Better than the last movie because two minuses equal plus. It was clear it wasn't going to work as horror, so the lighter mood sort of gives it a pass. Sixth movie, seven points. Pretty sure the last film will take a different approach....

I watched the first episode some time ago. Didn't really appeal to me except for the Nena song.

This is probably a long shot but, I saw a documentary, probably on TV/not a film, about a Russian/Siberian witch/legend from hundreds of years ago. They buried her with her hands bound and the the grave was continuously disturbed etc. The natives/shaman got involved when the film makers wanted to exhume the grave to see if she was indeed inside or was still "active" or "haunting" the hillsides. The locals were not pleased and took legal action etc etc.
I remember seeing it several years back and have been looking for it recently.
I know that's pretty obscure and nearly impossible but thought I would ask.
Thanks.

Possum was pretty bleak. I figured out the twist about 20 minutes in but still liked it for the atmosphere it presented. Main character did really well portraying someone both menacing in one moment and broken in the next. I also really loved the soundtrack.

I checked this out because of your comment. Liked it as well. Same dude as in The Guest, which remains one of my favorites.

Watched "The Shamer's Daughter" last night. I had been meaning to see it after Varg recommended it on his Youtube channel a long time ago.

It was on Amazon video which surprised me. It's not a great movie, or even a good one really but it was somewhat charming. It's got lots of Viking looking locations and Dragons and all that good stuff. All in all maybe worth a watch if you can't find anything better.

I got the feeling they were trying to go for that Peter Jackson LOTR epic type of thing, with a slight gloss of European arthouse. I would be disappointed if Europe tried to imitate Hollywood more in the future, rather than continue to the aesthetic they are known for.

Anyways that's not the only reason it wasn't very good, but I think maybe it stood out most to me.

Varg also recommended a few others I think, but the only one I can remember is Come and See which I already own. That's an amazing film. Even if it is total anti-German propaganda like Varg says.
