I got swamped. Good time for it actually as I burnt myself out watching / reviewing so many movies over the summer and was in need of a little break, anyway. Aside from my regular job, I've been busy prepping a film project, working on a (non-horror) documentary, researching essays for two different books and now trying to find time to complete the October Horror Movie Challenge. Watching movies is one thing. Watching, reviewing and screen capping is another. Just passing along a little note that I'll be back once things start settling down. Might be sooner than later. :)
★★★★ = Excellent. The best the genre has to offer.
★★★1/2 = Very Good. Perhaps not "perfect," but undoubtedly a must-see.
★★★ = Good. Accomplishes what it sets out to do and does it well.
★★1/2 = Fair. Clearly flawed and nothing spectacular, but competently made. OK entertainment.
★★ = Mediocre. Either highly uneven or by-the-numbers and uninspired.
★1/2 = Bad. Very little to recommend.
★ = Very Bad. An absolute chore to sit through.
NO STARS! = Abysmal. Unwatchable dreck that isn't even bad-movie amusing.
SBIG = So Bad It's Good. Technically awful movies with massive entertainment value.
