Day 27 – Your favorite guilty pleasure
For a movie about warring angels, Legion (2010) is amazingly chock full of overwrought action and massive explosions. While kind of an interesting concept—the Archangel Michael rebels against God to save humanity, it just doesn’t solidly land. But, man, I do love watching Paul Bettany kick people’s asses. Plus, that little old lady is pretty darn creepy. This is another movie I went to see in the theater with my sister. Aw, good times…
Day 28 – Your favorite horror film that no one’s ever heard of
(Note: The trailer isn’t entirely SFW.)
I don’t think my tastes are super obscure; so instead, I just want to toot the horn of a horror film I really like that might not have gotten in front of enough eyeballs. Green Room (2015) is the exact opposite of a film like Legion. There are no great-balls-of-fire explosions or aesthetically pleasing fight sequences. There are no supernatural forces, unless you count Patrick Stewart’s dead-eyed portrayal of a Neo-nazi head-honcho. It is, instead, a brutal and realistic survival flick. Anton Yelchin makes a second appearance on this list as the lead singer of a punk band who finds themselves in a very bad situation.
