"First viewing - June 8th Shudder Alligator does just what it should & I'm here for it. Sure it's a little too convenient how it manages to run into almost every character that matters along the way, but at the same time we want it to. My only real complaint is that the city's layout could be more clearly established so the audience can anticipate where it'll turn up next. Otherwise it was just what I'd expected in the best ways & I'm glad I finally got to see it."

" Date: 4/19/2022 Viewed: 4K UHD Re-watch Note: I've been wanting to rewatch this film for years because I haven't seen it in the last 25 years. I remember seeing it on the Sci-Fi channel in the mid-1990s when I was a kid and then purchasing it on VHS not long after. Furthermore, I used an Amazon gift card I received for Easter to purchase Alligator in 4K UHD. Alligator is still an enjoyable film to watch. It's not a masterpiece, but it's still entertaining. Along with The Birds (1963) and Jaw"

"October 2 "What the hell we looking for?" "Anything that looks like it doesn't belong here." "Uh, evidence of alligator nesting." "I see, like shoes, handbags, luggage..." One thing I really like about this movie is the title. It's very simplistic, but it's straight-forward and to the point. It's far from being anything remarkable, but it's fun. It had some cool effects, decent characters and it doesn't take itself too seriously. This does kind of remind me of the original Piranha which in t"
