Movies the giraffe watched in 2014: July (35 movies items)

"First viewing - July 10th Stephen King Double Feature See Cujo below for the first part of the double-feature. I followed up Cujo with a King adaptation I hadn't already seen before. Turns out I should have just gone on to bed, especially since I spent most of this piece of crap struggling to stay awake. The premise is meh, the execution is cheesy & leaves much to be desired (cornfields are scary?), the acting is mostly awful due to the fact there's an abundance of child actors, and Linda Ham"

Series Review: Children of the Corn (9 movies items)

" The kids of a small Nebraska town murder all the adults under the command of a child preacher and follow their own interpretation of the bible. A pretty decent concept made into a pretty average movie. We have a lot of child actors which means they are obviously awful and even the lead actor isn't very good. Linda Hamilton is decent at least even though she isn't given much to do. It's not well filmed either. Probably 25% of this movie is either awkward zooms or closeups on knives "
