    Manos: The Hands of Fate

    0/100

    Watch #4 of Hoop-Tober 7.0

    Watching Manos: The Hands of Fate while tired, alone, and sober was certainly one of the more stupid decisions I've made recently. This is of course a vertiable classic of the 'so-bad-it's-good' family, yet when my crazed cackling wasn't being reciprocated by someone sitting next to me, my viewing became as sobering and solemn as trudging through a graveyard. With no outlet for my bemusement, everything from Torgo convulsing to the wild dubbing only…

    They Remain

    ★★★

    With that being said, this is still an impressive visual exercise considering the obvious lack of resources available. It may resemble a polished portfolio rather than a rounded film, but you can't deny the skill apparent.

    The Lovely Bones

    ★★

    As soon as the credits rolled for 'The Lovely Bones,' I recognized a profound dislike for the film suddenly wash over me. Now, I don't necessarily hate the 'film' and its mechanics, as I do think it features many admirable attributes. My hatred is directed towards how such a monumental opportunity for an emotional and unique film was absolutely wasted by the creators. When you look at the interesting concept here, you can't help but become frustrated by its near-careless…
