The Boogens – Episode 11

    God I watched this tonight and it was pretty damn slow and basically built up to nothing. Sure the characters were likable and it was humerus at times but boy did it drag. I think it’s about 50mins in before we even seen anything of the creature which is a long time of not watching a lot happen. Definitely thought this was going to be a better film than it was.

      I will admit The Boogins is a big pair of rose colored glasses for me. I was too young to be watching it the first time I saw it and I saw the whole thing without audio on a blurred cable channel. (ah, the troubles just to watch an R rated film back in the 80s)

      They didn’t have the budget they hoped and the creatures didn’t look like they intended, hence why you don’t really get a look at them until the end. Slow pacing usually doesn’t bother me as long as what is going on is enough to keep my interest. Sideways and The Thin Red Line are two movies that I hate because they were hours and hours of nothing.

  • David:

    I guess it has that nostalgic feeling for you. Oh, and I turned to bribery to let my parents allow me to watch R rated films. It’s amazing what a little bit of whinging can do.

    I kind of thought this film was a whole lot of nothing. Like I said before, not totally boring the whole way through but alt the same time not totally engaging either.

    • Cecil:

      LOL when I was younger now amount of bribery would have worked on my folks. My sister however, was open to bribery. She used to rent whatever was out (Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, etc) and leave them for me to watch when my folks weren’t around.

      Sorry you didn’t like it but at least you enjoyed the review. 🙂

  • David:

    Haha, I guess we all manage to somehow find a way to watch the movies we’re not suppose to.

    It’s cool. Not like it’s your fault or anything. Your review way way better than the film. 🙂

    I saw this at the drive-inn when I was a kid, and I really enjoyed it. I’ve always loved monster movies, and I’ve never minded a “slow-burn” horror film. Keep in mind, at the time this film was made, pretty much every horror film was a slasher film. I didn’t hate slasher movies, but I preferred monsters. I still like this film. I was, I guess, quite a bit luckier growing up as my mom was extremely liberal about what we got to see. It was either that, or we were so poor she couldn’t afford a babysitter, so we got to go see the movies at the drive-inn with her. I saw Heavy Metal on opening night, and when the guy in the ticket booth tried to explain that it wasn’t for kids, my mom looked at him seriously and said “I let him read the magazine, so I’m sure it’s going to be fine.” Man, I loved my mom.

    Damn, you got better. This is terrible. At least you came into your own by Class of 1999.

    • Cecil:

      Well, keep in mind I was doing these in a vacuum. I was kind of learning as I went. I had no idea if I was going to keep doing these or not. I was on outdated hardware and I think most videos got 20 views if I was lucky and about once a month I got a comment.

      Like anything, no one is perfect out of the gate. You need to practice, make mistakes, learn and grow.

      • demonknight:

        Right you are, sir. But… there are exceptions. Look at the deluge of terrible reviewers on YouTube. Some are on episode 96 and still awful. You went from being “Meh.” to the cream of the crop within 20 episodes. I respect that.

        • Cecil:

          Thanks, I really appreciate that. I’m striving to make the show better and better as well as branch out with new stuff without tarnishing the core of the show. (such as the animated intros) I have a lot planned for 2014.

          I’m working my ass off to make this one of the best shows out there.

  • Rafael:

    I saw a documentary or something on the Blair witch project.
    I really did think it was real for a little until in was going to theaters then I
    thought “Why would the family sign off to show the last days of their children.”
    I know I was a dumbass but I was 14 I think.

  • Jeremy:

    Let’s see… The movie came out in 1981 and you were 9 when it was released in theaters. So that makes you… carry the two, 43 years old. Damn.
