    Also, watched The Endless last night and was not disappointed. Wouldn't say it's quite operating on as high of level as Primer, but it did remind me of Primer quite a bit. Resolution isn't a must see beforehand, it does add to the movie a little though.

    You're pretty spot on with that assessment. I liked the original quite a bit, although I think I'm in the minority on that. Not the best home invasion movie, but it's fun. Definitely different from what the sequels became.

    New Orleans suggestions?

    Ah yeah, I'm familiar with them! I'll make sure to add it to my list. I usually like these too. They're definitely on the silly end, but I always find them fun and worth my time.
  6. Yeah, I'm not a big fan of Sumerian in general. I don't know if I'd mind it so much if II stood on it's own better too. To me, it sounds like the back half of an album and not a piece of work that can be enjoyed by itself. Part I sounded more complete.
  7. Although I'm enjoying both of these, the consumer side of me feels like I just got duped into paying $40+ for what should've just been a single 2xLP release. The fact that II's sides are labeled C/D doesn't help assuage those thoughts.
  8. A friend and I are going to be in New Orleans for 5 nights at the end of next month. We'll be staying in the French Quarter (don't know much about it, he booked the room). Any suggestions for craft beer, vegan food, general sight seeing / tourist stuff and record stores would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Here's my watching for the week so far The First Purge : This was real dumb. I thought the first three were definitely stupid, but they were fun and ridiculous. This one fell flat in so many ways. The social / economic stuff is worse than usual (and part of that plot line just disappears). Feel like this franchise is delivering some real diminishing returns at this point. One of the more enjoyable things is that it does go full action movie for a bit. Another Wolfcop : I don't remember if I liked the first one or not. I definitely didn't like this one. Lace Crater : Kind of a mumblecore light body horror movie. I enjoyed it, but I also like stuff that's pretty mumbly and might be a tad biased toward it. The Fog : Another Carpenter movie that I hadn't seen. I can't say it's anyone near the top 5, but it was worth watching. Ravenous : For the most part, this was a slower and fairly generic zombie movie. There's about 15 minutes where it dives into arthouse territory and was pretty interesting. Not really sure what to make of it as a whole. I also finished my run on Tales from the Crypt. Was watching an episode or two before bed every night and it was kind of a blast going through this. The percentage of actual good episodes is pretty low, but so many of them are real fun and cheesy.
  10. If I remember right, you can specify that it use your card (or maybe linked bank account) all the time. I've got mine using my credit card unless I specify otherwise, but I know I had to set it up.
  11. Yeah, I was thinking that as I hit purchase. I'm glad I don't order from Relapse much these days, they've gotten real damn expensive apparently.

    A Quiet Place - I was too busy to catch this in the theater unfortunately. Overall I liked it, except for a complaint that I'll put in spoilers. Very clever idea that seems like it appeals to horror nerds, but is also broad enough that my folks would probably like it too.

    The Domestics - This was a real fun one. The Mad Max comparison is pretty obvious, but there's definitely some The Warriors and Fallout in there too. Minutes to Midnight - Oof was this terrible. It might be a bit more entertaining with a group of people if you need something dumb to make fun of, otherwise it should be avoided.

    I enjoyed it if I remember right.

    Had a real good time at the Cineapocalypse screenings I went to. Would love to make it an annual trip, but I'll have to figure that out next year. Await Further Instructions - This was all around great, I suggest keeping an eye out for it. Can't go into it too much without spoilers though. The Cop Baby - Not horror. Very strange Russian film about a cop who body swaps with a baby. Much funnier than I was expecting. Great midnight film. Demon Knight - Hadn't seen this since it came out and it's still pretty rad. Don't know if I'd have went to it normally, but I've been slowly watching Tales from The Crypt and it seemed appropriate. Summer of '84 - This was real well done. I liked Await more, but this was a close second.
