1:18 am - Cloning Around
So, here's the thing about Trisk...the new review?

Not really a review.

Instead, I have uncovered some deep, dark secret experiments from our nation's past, and I have chosen to put my life and others at risk in order to share them.

Sure, it LOOKS like a review of the 1973 movie "The Clones"...but there's a reason no one has ever heard of this mess of a film...

12:50 pm - Out the Window!
Getting a quick Trisk update in with my review of Open Windows.

It's the start of a new trend in movies, trying to tell a story via just the computer screen! That's right, you're stuck staring at a laptop screen, and watching the story unfold through video windows and websites throughout the story.

There's something here, but this movie does not have it.

10:20 am - Grave Mistakes
So I go to see Unfriended yesterday.

Is that the new review I'm posting to Trisk? Hahahaha, nope! That would make sense!

Instead, its the sequel to one of my favourite found footage movies, Grave Encounters 2.

Not as great as the first, but still really enjoyable, and I loved the different take on the movie, the meta commentary, and other stuff.

8:53 am - You Can't Pick Movies Like This
What do I've got for Trisk this time?

A movie about a guy who learns to magically change his form, and this leads him to turn himself into a girl. Which leads him to kill people. That's the plot of the Nostril Picker.

Nothing about that last sentence is normal. Which describes this movie perfectly.

8:48 pm - Page of Ultron
Held off for a day to not drop lots of reviews all at once, so just updated Trisk with my review of Age of Ultron.

Short version: LOVED it. Probably more than the first, because we didn't spend time with the usual gathering of forces, and instead could just have a blast in the gigantic shared universe we've built.

But it's not perfect, and a lot of that comes down to the movie being TOO big for its runtime.

There's other issues, and I wish I'd talked more, or at all, about Black Widow, but there's a lot to get out of my head, and not everything makes it out...

1:30 am - Promtastic
Okay, this is quick, because I'm annoyed, my review was a pain to get edited and put together, but here we go.

New on Trisk today, my review of the remake for Prom Night.

It's baaaad.

Great cast, plot that completely implodes and forgets how to tell a proper story in the last 20 minutes. Frustrating beyond belief. So frustrating this almost gets the facepalm icon instead of the Trisk icon.

2:18 am - Look Before you Lepus
It's the 26th, so Trisk has added a new big review, and this time it's the classic (Well, for certain values of 'classic') horror flick with giant hoppin' bunnies, Night of the Lepus.

The idea is absurd, they try hard to make it seem serious, but no will in the world can pull that off. Still, they at least put together an entertaining movie amidst the absurd concept. This is probably the best, most straight interpretation of such an idea.

8:55 am - Marrow to the Head
Just posted a new review to Trisk for a movie that's very hard to categorise. It's not really found footage, but it's not really a documentary, it's kinda a mockumentary, and it's kinda a monster movie...

What I *do* know is that Digging up the Marrow is by Adam Green, making a fake documentary about Ray Wise's character's having discovered real monsters lurking just underneath our own society.

It's weird, and good, and actually told really well. One of my favourite 'found footage' movies, and one of my fave horror movies of this year.

1:13 am - Totem Pole Dancing
I've had a crap day, and I'm tired of rewriting the same plot synopsis that makes the latest Trisk review sound like it's actually Cabin in the Woods, when it's not.

Totem does not even come close to being Cabin in the Woods.

It's bad. It is really bad.
