    You post so rarely now, and this is what you choose to pimp? o_O

    I'd forgotten all about that one. Heard good things but I kept waiting for it to go down in price. Now I see that've got a BD-R selling on Amazon for $9.98. Decent quality?

    I just found out about the BD-r and couldn't find any info about it. I'm tempted to give it a try though. Gonna try and spin the dvd early next week and see if it holds up and feels worth an upgrade attempt. Hate gambling on bd-r, could just be the same dvd transfer I have. I'll also look harder for info, starting right now, anyone seen the bd-r?:D

    Huh? You mean most WEREWOLF movies or movies in general?

    Either way cut it out with the annoying old man stereotype. "Everything is awful! Where's my pills? My diaper is full!"

    If your diaper is full you should probably change it.

    The older I get, the more I think I'm turning into Leonard Maltin; a chaotic neutral to Siskel's chaotic evil and Ebert's lawful good.

    I've become more mellow as I aged. When I first saw Resident Evil after it's release I was all butthurt that it wasn't exactly like the first game in every way possible. And then I never watched the rest of the franchise. Then just this year I decided to watch Final Chapter in the theaters, so I watched the series. I had a lot of fun and enjoy the series, even the first one. Upon reflection it was a pretty good movie and better than Romero's script which I found even more cliché (I'm sure that's what George had to resort to in his last attempt at getting a green light).

    I also took the same stab at Underworld, which I originally decreed I was too cool for. But while the first one was full of the Interview with the Vampire clichés I dislike the rest of the movie was well done. Then in my surprise the rest of the series dropped all the IwtV crap and stuck with action/horror and I enjoyed the whole series.

    When I was younger, I held my nose up to it. But now as I get older I find it unproductive to make reasons to dislike something and instead I can find reasons to like some of these things.

    Now I could make a good case for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans in this thread. I probably wouldn't have when it was released. Hell I almost skipped it this year when binge watching the series. But it turned out to be probably the best spin-off movie I've ever seen. Something sacrilegious in my youth... Maybe I should give the Wolf Man reboot another shot? ... Nah. :cool:

    My bad for not elaborating. Those 4 I posted were all stretches for me. Those are all the ones I find watchable. Ginger Snaps is probably my favorite Werewolf movie ever, and I don't LOVE it. That should tell you a lot right there.

    Nah, just giving you shit by being a grammar Nazi. :cool:

    I enjoyed Ginger Snaps, but I never watched the sequel/prequel. Really need to. What's the recommend order? I could give them a nice weekend binge.

    This is a good thread, stirring up my interest in Werewolves again which I usually put to the wayside.

    You mentioned having full diapers so I recommended you change them. Why don't you get off your pedestal and take a chill pill.

    Just received the Werewolf Filmography and at a quick glance it is a very nice addition to my horror movie book collection. There aren't as many photographs as I would have liked but it is a large hardback book and MacFarland puts out books that I generally enjoy. Worth picking up if you enjoy this genre.

    McFarland puts out wonderful books, but they are always skimpy on the photos. I have a lot of their books. Good stuff.
