Latest Movie Review

Rating of
1.5/4

Altered States

Not a Good Trip

A cool premise -- unleashing the potential, and the horrors, of the human mind through prolonged sensory depravation -- gets a bit hooky toward the end. Bizarre late 70's drug special effects can also make it difficult to watch. But an interesting look into post-hippy culture.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture Review comment

Damn! I was excited about this one. Still I will check it out this week and let you know my thoughts.

Yeah. It was during the winter of 1986. My first time to actually leave out of my home country the Philippines. I was one of the speakers of the Foursquare group from 39 different nations. I have awesome memories. First time to see snow. I want to go back and visit though.

Hey Topher...How's Korea? I've been in Daejeon in 1986 and have good memories.

Them ( Ils ) Review comment

Very creepy idea, especially as it is based on true events. Otherwise I don't think I would have believed it. It's at its best when you don't know who or what is after them. It's left to your imagination.

The Last Starfighter Review comment

Maybe bad 80's is my thing. I just watched this one, and thought "Maybe if I watched this one when I was younger I would have loved it" but in the end it was just alright.

The Happening Review comment

I haven't seen this yet, I guess I will have have to check it out to see if I should put it on my worst endings list

Worst All Time List comment

According to some of the other comments, you've made some adjustments...looks pretty dead on as i see it...& i agree one of the best "worst" lists, but like everyone i have to state my opinion, 300= bad...but I can't quite see it as one of the worst.
