Halloween 2 (2009) - Rob Zombie

I had been very critical of the first movie. I trusted that Rob Zombie would treat this franchise well. I just didn't know where he was going with it. The first remake was monumental, or at least it felt that way. It had a new found brutality that was added into the mix. It was different to say the least. This one however, felt egregious right from the get-go. 

Michael Myers looks like Zakk Wylde in this sequel to the Rob Zombie remake. Myers is still on the loose continuing his rampage from the first movie. He brutally massacres anyone in his way. His sister, Laurie, has been admitted to the local hospital after suffering from her wounds earlier as seen in the first movie. Doctor Loomis returns as well as the Sheriff from the first film, Brad Douriff. 
This film has no problem of revealing Michael Myers much more than the any other movie had done in the franchise. He speaks, he grunts, he has a beard. The beard must be the source of his power. Zombie also explores deep psychologica…

The Monster of Camp Sunshine or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Nature (1964) - Ferenc Leroget

One of the dullest movies I have ever seen. I could pretty much leave it at that. Aside from it being dull, this hippy/beatnik/nudist film is weird and as important as an ant farting. The movie is of course X due to the nudity. However, it isn't a drawing point. It's pointless and boring. Nothing special. The antagonist is a goof ball that doesn't seem threatening even while he is killing people. 
The acting is horrible and the quality is terrible. The soundtrack is atrocious it doesn't fit a single scene. It sounds like I am watching this movie under water too. It has too many echos and barely any dialog. The dialog it does have is in the form of narration and dub's. It's horrible. 
It leaves me with nothing to say.
