    That and Grave of the Fireflies are some of the only movies to make me cry like a baby.

    They both have characters that you can really root for.

    Something kinda funny is the fact that when you search Your Name on google, this comes up

    think you might be a bit wrong there, google

    Nomadland (2020).
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9770150/

    A snapshot in the life of those doing the van dwelling thing. That is to say kit out a van and go travel around in it and live in it.
    It is a lifestyle that fascinates me, and possibly one I will adopt at some point.
    Watch quite a few videos on it online as it is a somewhat popular thing, especially if you wind in more general adventures. While the film was quite nice and fair with everything I much prefer said online videos. Watch it if you want though as it was just a nicely shot pseudo documentary type deal.


    Blame it on Rio (1984)
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086973/
    Michael Caine and his best mate and their teenage daughters go to Brazil for a holiday as their marriages are either over or on the rocks. Michael Caine ends up sleeping with his mate's daughter (not really a spoiler) and then it all goes from there.
    Suffers a bit from being presumably funded by the tourist board of Brazil (every other scene is "check out our cool country") but I am watching a 70s/80s film set somewhere else so I can't say I expected anything else and it is not like it does not happen today. But otherwise a solid script, solid acting and some themes worth pondering a bit. Still a romantic comedy but if my choices in 1984 were this, All of Me, Sixteen Candles or Romancing the Stone then this every time as there is actually something to this.

    Jaws - The Revenge (1987)
    (DVD Version)

    220px-Jaws_the_revenge.jpg

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaws:_The_Revenge

    The most "exciting" Part was this Picture:
    Der weisse Hai 4.mp4_snapshot_01.23.26.368.jpg

    For me on the PAL Video it was on Postion 1h23min26sec (right after the Scene with Brody´s Shooting / Ellen is screaming and impaling the Shark).You maybe need to Frame by Frame search.It is only 2 Frames long.

    Never actually saw any of the Jaws sequels. I was also watching killer creature films. In my case

    Arachnophobia (1990)
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0099052/

    Not quite pure 70s cheese a la the Q Winged Serpent I saw a while back (or if I must do spiders then Kingdom of the Spiders, though it has been a very long time since I saw that), and not quite the more modern stuff a la 8 legged freaks and ultimately about as late 80s/early 90s a film as you are ever going to see -- if you can picture a trailer before a VCR using lines like "in a world" then that, so much that. Plot is killer spiders vs small town America, don't really want to spoil it as I am not going to say don't do it.
    I actually had a good time. All pretty well acted, mostly put together (nail guns are not guns and while I maintain there is such a thing as a barking spider a shrieking one is new), setup and payoff is a thing people did, actually something like suspense, not afraid to kill people off...
    Could have used a proper rating rather than the still yet to be neutered PG (I saw it was directed by Frank Marshall, I reckon Neil Marshall would have been one to see here) but it was not as neutered as the PG13 horror/action efforts today.
    Don't know that I would particularly suggest anybody go back and watch it now, and most certainly not advised for anybody actually with arachnophobia, but if it is an option then you could have a good time"] a shrieking one is new), setup and payoff is a thing people did, actually something like suspense, not afraid to kill people off...

    I think the last movie I watched was the Monster Hunter one.
    It was not my best choice.

    I saw some reviews of that and it did not look good.
    That said have there been any good continuation zombie sequels years after the originals? Or indeed have zombie sequels in general really been worth it?
    For the Romero stuff then I suppose Land was not the worst thing, though a far cry from the original three. The less said about Diary and and Survival of the better. It feels wrong to even note the non Dawn remakes in this bit as well, even if I can sort of appreciate the Tom Savini Night of the Living Dead remake (have not seen the blu ray either).
    Rec is probably too short to really qualify there but could go for reasonable sequels.
    Plaga Zombie I saw got a sequel last year but have not seen yet. The general lack of reviews probably says most of what I need to know though.
    I am going to count Resident Evil in this as it is the better part of 15 years and I would probably say maybe consider the first two, and best bits of the third.
    Return of the Living Dead?
    Do I even dare try to make sense of the Zombi series and its mess of a... I don't want to say timeline but for others watching Terminator has not got shit on this. Even Street Fighter sequels would take less time to map out.
    I reckon I can just about squeak in Zombieland to this, if only because it fits my narrative and I want to bash on it again.
    Reel Zombies might not have been the worst thing out there either (especially given Zombie Night 2: Awakening) but given all of them were out within 5 years then I am not counting it in the decades later thing.

    I see Zak Snyder is returning this year for a sequel to the Dawn remake (that I can actually quite appreciate still) so maybe there is a possibility.

    I also see Yoroi Samurai Zombie was written by the guy that did Versus (Japanese one, one of my favourite zombie films in general) so I guess I know what I will be trying to find now.

    Except Trick 'r Treat is an effing modern classic and I'd say even far better than Trick or Treat (the latter of which I LOVED in my youth, but don't feel it stands the test of time). Your money was certainly not wasted whatsoever. The movie has a HUGE cult following. In fact, Scream Factory released a Collector's Edition with a new 2K scan a few years back. ;)

    What does German Synchronization mean? For the love of God I hope it doesn't have a German overdub instead of the original English. :lol:
