One of the best movies ever. Period.
When this came out I had been to every John Carpenter movie he’d put out since I had been alive and available to go to the theater. This had wrestler Roddy Piper (who I hated) in it and it was more comedic than I had been exposed to. This was a real disappointment to me then (as a John Carpenter horror loving / Roddy Piper hating person). I watched this the other week and I guess it’s not too bad. I guess.
In full disclosure, I don’t really love Ben Stiller, I can give or take with Downey, same with Cruise and McConaughey but: THIS WAS HI-LAR-I-OUS!!! I hadn’t laughed so hard when I saw this the first and second times in forever. This is totally a rewatch all the time. Not one of my “favorite movies” but always worth the time. “Pump your breaks, kid…” Love it.
HELLO!! It’s been a little bit since I’ve gone Half Assing but we’re back for right now! I don’t know, I guess I’ve just been doing some other stuff – but – here’s a batch! I like almost every member of this cast but this movie sucked the (radio edit). What the (beep)??? This was tuuuuuuuuuurible. I recently commented with a fantastic someone about The Hangover but this is MUCH WORSE….
This is not a remake of the sucky movie from the mid nineties that shares its name. This is a horror film that has a few good things going for it but takes itself way too seriously. IMO, when I see something that takes itself as seriously as this does, then I better believe in it. I didn’t think the situations and conversations and that sort of thing were very believable in here but I know they tried. If anything else, DAYLIGHT is better than DAYLIGHT.
