30 DAYS OF NIGHT (2007)

I've long heard semi-decent things about this one, but only now got a chance to see it... kind of a huge disappointment.

On paper, a horror amalgam of John Carpenter's THE THING, SALEM'S LOT, NEAR DARK, and an inverse INSOMNIA could have been a slam-dunk, but I found this to be really dopey, cheesy and decidedly un-scary.  And in the end, just too stupid to take seriously.

And ironically enough, the film is surprisingly much too well-lit throughout!

Michael Penn:
"BOOGIE NIGHTS has maybe the best use of popular music contemporary with the film's timeline outside of a Scorsese movie."

Loved your cameo in the film, as well, Michael!

VALARIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS(2017)

Not at all familiar with source material, so cannot speak to fidelity, or how much of the movie comes from the comic.

Sure is a lot here, tho. Too much, even, when the leads have about as much chemistry as a cat and a bucket of tar. Yawn.

Designs and effects are impressive, but MAN am I glad I didn't see it in 3D!
