Apparently I had a teacher who met Ed Harris during shooting of this; said he was a very nice man. That little trivia tidbit aside, I have to admit, I have a soft spot for this Michael Bay movie: the action scenes are really well shot, the plot is sorta interesting and the dynamic between tough-as-nails Connery and nerd Cage saves it from being a complete disaster. Being shot in my backyard helps too.

Mama (2013)

Mama (2013) - A horror movie about feral children. These kids weren't raised by wolves, but by an incredibly lame ghost. This movie shows way too much of the poorly rendered monster to feel scary. Really disappointing.

Final Destination (2000)

Final Destination (2000). Warning: there is gore. In spite of that, I still think the idea of teenagers not being able to escape death is a great 'what if' for a scary movie.
