” Sweet Spike ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-F 50mm F2.8 Macro )

” Nobody likes Sweet Spike… As a matter of fact, nobody liked him ever since he was born. He used to be quite a nice fellow, you know? Unfortunately his strange looks, weird diet and not so much fresh breath made him really unpopular. He’s genuinely desperate nowadays, he just flies around and tries to hug anyone… that can’t be good, can it? He used to be charming, really smart and with a good talk. Sadly enough, time changes everyone… and for poor Sweet Spike the change was not for the better… I mean, I don’t blame him, you know? How would you personally feel if everyone, without any exception, would hate you from the moment they meet you? Not nice, huh? And it wasn’t nice for Spike as well… All he ever wanted was to be just like others; nice, colourful, likeable, cute and things like that. Didn’t work out at all… He got beaten many times, with many different things; newspapers, towels, flip-flops, got electrocuted, sprayed with chemicals and so much more… It’s just painful, you know? Not just for the body, but for the soul as well… Poor Spike, I heard he got addicted to pooh again too. It is not his fault really? The freaking nature designed him like that, what can he do about it? Nothing, exactly… so why all the hate!? Sweet Spike~!! Not everyone hates you~!! Can you hear me~!? Don’t you do anything stupid~!! Some of us understand how you feel and you are not alone~!! Unluckily… Sweet Spike is not with us any more… Those were my last words to him, and this is the last photograph of him. Sweet Spike was found dead at a hotel room in Des Moines, Iowa, on May 25. Test results have shown he died of an accidental diarrhoea overdose. He is survived by… no one. You won’t be missed, but you were still… pretty fly for a stinky guy. “

Howard: Crazy is building your ark after the flood has already come.

 

 7.4 /10 from 88,654 users. I really don’t care about ratings of this one because I loved Cloverfield (2008) so much, I can’t even express it. I just hope I will love it the same or even more.

6 minutes – interesting start

22 minutes – do you like post-apocalyptic stuff? You will love this, even though there are no sceneries of it

27 minutes – it reminds me more of Saw (2004) than Cloverfield (2008)

42 minutes – holy FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

54 minutes – refreshing

1h 15minutes – totally unexpected~!!

1h 33 minutes – weird as hell with so many questions unanswered~! grrr

 

Meh… not worth the Cloverfield‘s (2008) name, but it was okay.

” Faceless ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-FA 77mm F1.8 Limited )

” Faceless Angels walking down the face of earth… like a wind, passing transparently between souls lost and broken. They judge, analyse, take and give. You may never know when you meet one of those wretched creations, once of a heavenly descent. Ruined, knocked off, shattered, disgraced… and finally cast away. Forever trapped between the worlds of eternal flame and clouds, unwanted… thrown away. Evermore imprisoned in wander without a destination. Enslaved in order to do things no other great being wish to do. Pulling down those who ascent way to fast, giving a boost to those of critical need. All this and many more demeaning deeds, constantly surrounded by ever rotting flesh, dirt and filth of mankind that multiplies like a disease. The face that haunts, the hands that scrape and the mossy breath… insides filled with nothing, programmed for indifference and apathy, perpetually impassive. It’s not here to help you, it’s not there to hinder… It’s not your friend nor the enemy… Balance, it’s the only thing of its interest. My Fair Stone Wingless Lady, have you finally come to raise me… or you’re here to crush me, and put me out of my misery… “

Amos: You cannot punch ectoplasm.

 

 6.8 /10 from 20,836 users. Comedy, Horror, Thriller… after seeing this, I really wanted to back off from this one, but then I have watched the trailer and it somehow caught my attention once again. Let’s see if I made the right choice going for it.

 

1 minute 53 seconds – starts with a boom~!

6 minutes – funny where it needs to be with a smart directing, straight to the point. The comedy elements feel natural and do not interfere with its seriousness

11 minutes – it grasps your attention after only a few seconds of watching, but the thing that it mixes all three film genre together so well, leaves me even more astonished

26 minutes – weird as fock… but somehow interesting nonetheless

50 minutes – it could have been a decent horror, but they have mixed comedy in it and I have no idea what to think about it… Imagine a serious horror/thriller film with some comedy elements…

1h 4 minutes – this mix is driving me nuts… but still, it is somehow interesting

 

Holy smokes… This film is the definition of weird… I have been watching films for more than two decades, but I have never seen anything like this before… what a mix… I hate it so much~! It is really well made, but just totally not my thing.

Lloyd Gallagher: You can’t.

 

Ratings: 7.0/10 from 12,164 users, good enough for me. The story seems to be interesting too. How did I learn about the existence of this film? Well, check out this amazing music clip:

 

The music is brilliant, but the scenes from the film also made me wonder about it, so here I am. Let’s see if it is something you can watch without the nice music.

 

2 minutes – and the action is already rolling

8 minutes – lots of nice action straight from the magical 80’s

13 minutes – oh my f… god, creepy and disgusting! wow… make sure you don’t make the same mistake as I did, don’t eat…

22 minutes – I am watching and thinking… what a great idea for a film

52 minutes – it is funny when needed, it has got an interesting story and it doesn’t bore you

1h 18minutes – the special effects are great as well. I love the old films because everything you see is real, done with creativity. Those effects will be always on top of the ones generated from a computer

 

After so many years, it is still a solid film.

” Please Come In ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + HD Pentax-DA 35mm F2.8 Limited Macro )

” Somewhere deep in a city, there is an area, nobody visits… All surrounding buildings have been demolished, but this one… was left alone. People say, once you go inside this place, you never come back the same. Nobody believes those stories, right? Me neither, so I have decided to check this mysterious leftovers of a building. The whole thing felt wrong from the very beginning. There were plenty of different warehouses, shops and garages around, but none of them were moderately close to the ruin. The area has been sealed off with a high fence, but I have managed to get inside. All ground entries have been either boarded or walled up, and the ones that haven’t, were leading straight to the basement… Pardon my lack of bravery, but it is not a story of a heroic knight, and certainly… this path did not suit me well. I had to find another way in. After closer examination, I have found a way to get inside. A partially boarded door, was kind enough to let me squeeze in. The moment I got into it, a foul stench hit my nostrils like a hammer. It wasn’t an animal, it was something quite different… I was swiftly making my way between halls and rooms, trying not to make any noise at the same time. It was rather hard to achieve, considering all the rubble and glass lying around. The sun was getting inside, lighting most of the interior, for which I was unbelievably grateful. Unfortunately, my bright yellow friend could not reach some parts of the building, leaving it dark and black like a coal. I was trying to avoid those devilish parts as best as I could, I was only a visitor, I did not want to wake up something unholy here… When I reached a staircase, I took a brief glance downstairs and I wish I hadn’t… The pitch black madness was only a few steps away from my shoes, a cold touch went through my whole body, almost pushing me off balance. I made my way up, quicker than a cat chased by a dog. Once again, I was moving swiftly between different rooms and corridors, exploring everything thoroughly… everything that was in light that is. The paint which was coming off the walls and ceilings, was creating weird shapes and patterns, hanging like venomous creatures, trying to reach you. Soon, I have found an interesting room, full of documents and books of some sort, the musty sweet smell was making me feel sick, but I wanted to know what they are. The moment I opened one of them with my foot, I heard something behind me, something I cannot describe with words. It sounded like a cry of a baby dying or some animal being ripped in half. Needlessly to say, I turned around immediately, not sure what I will see… but I saw nothing. Suddenly, I have lost all the interest in further exploring. I didn’t want to stay in this building any longer, I had captured some photographs and decided it will have to be enough. I was trying to make my way back to the staircase as fast as I could, but the corridors… they looked different… I did not know which turn to take in any of them. After few seconds, or maybe minutes, I wasn’t walking anymore, I was running, trying to find the way out. That sound again, I didn’t know where it came from… I was standing, paralysed by fear, I wanted to move… but my legs were not responding. Again, the howl of something dying in agony, struck me like a thunder, I could move again. I ran and ran, it could be seconds, maybe minutes, but it felt like an eternity before I reached the stairway. I was dashing down, praying that my foot don’t step on some rubble in all this rush, but something far worse has happened… Once again, I was standing frozen, with cold sweat running down my body… The darkness from the basement, was just a few steps down from me… How? I have not even reached the ground floor… I have slowly started moving upstairs again, pushing my back against the wall, shaking… When I got back on the top floor, the sun was not reaching anywhere, anymore… Despite of broken windows and an early afternoon, everything was dimmed and dark, there was nowhere to go… not without going through the complete darkness. I cringed in a corner of the staircase, afraid to take another step. I heard it again… the agony, cry, howl and screaming in pain… but this time, it came from the very next room, the foul stench was present again… I closed my eyes, in hope that it’s only a bad dream, and once I open them, I will wake up in my bed. After a while, I opened them, I was still inside the building, but it all seemed to be back to normal. The sun was shining through the broken windows and I could hear ambient sounds coming from the outside. Without much thinking, I made my way out of the building, as fast as I possibly could. It took me days, before I could ease my mind… After a few weeks, I recalled about the photographs I had taken. I connected my camera, and a threatening chill went down my spine again… There was only one… The one, I did not take… “

What We Do in the Shadows (2014)

Deacon: I think we drink virgin blood because it sounds cool.

Vladislav: I think of it like this. If you are going to eat a sandwich, you would just enjoy it more if you knew no one had fucked it.

 

 

I really don’t know what to expect from this one, I have not seen any films from those directors. Ratings: 7.6/10 from 34,219 users and the trailer look decent, let’s see the rest.

 

12 minutes – so far I really like, it is something that I have not watched before. It intrigues me and I definitely want to see more

27 minutes – I know it supposed to be funny, but I am not laughing… not even once. It’s not boring or anything like that, but so far not really funny…

38 minutes – it is definitely well thought and amusing though

58 minutes – actually it is quite dull… Not bad, not good… just meh…

 

I am honestly disappointed with this one… I really expected much more.

” Into The Void ” by tgchan ( Fujifilm X100 BLACK Limited Edition )

” A long freight train noiselessly heading into a mist, slowly slipping into a void… Dark yellowish brown sky, malevolently hangs above its path. The light at the back of fatigued diesel engine, soon will disappear in the evil thick fog. Pulling many blue wagons full of broken souls, it moves resolutely on its railway tracks to abyss… You can smell the stench of death in the smoke it leaves behind… ”

” Rust Light ” by tgchan ( Fujifilm X100 BLACK Limited Edition )

” Have you ever wondered how it would be, if all the lights would suddenly go off…? What if the sun would never come up again? Can you imagine living in a darkness for the rest of your life? The world drowned in shadows as dark as ink, chaos and panic reigning on the streets… Never knowing what is hiding behind the black abyss. What if something else came with the darkness… something eternal and evil. What if this rusty lamp was the last thing you were looking at, before it has all started… “

The Purge: Anarchy (2014)

MV5BMjE2ODMxMTk1Nl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDEzNjEzMTE@._V1_SX214_AL_

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2975578/?ref_=nv_sr_1

I am truly looking forward watching this flick. After watching the trailer, it highly reminded me of a game “Carmageddon”. I know it will be different, but I love post apocalyptic atmosphere and I hope for the best here. The plot really matters to me as I was thinking more or less similar things many times and I am genuinely curious how will they show it etc.

Let’s start it!

18 minutes – “We need to run…” Hah! This is what I wanted to hear! I love movies where the main character has to run from something. It makes movie so much more intense and interesting.

27 minutes – this would never work out in the real life… people would not stop after 12h… not to mention wait whole years for another purge… If anything, this whole idea would spawn more and more murders who can’t wait for the next event… but it is only a movie I get it, let’s go back watching.

57minutes – nothing really worth mentioning… nothing really good, neither bad… just normal and a little boring.

1h 18minutes – maybe this movie had a nice idea and great ambition… but it is just plain stupid… retarded scheme where good guys never die and bad ones drop like flies…

1h 34minutes – LOL they hear siren goes off and they all stop like that WTF RETARDED!!! Tom and Jerry is more real than that!

 

Waste of time… There are hundreds of better movies  out there to watch right now! Decent idea but it falls short…
