16:20 - !J.O.O.E.! Personally I'm hoping that one day Lynch decides he wants to do a film adaptation of Silent Hill 2.
16:18 - !J.O.O.E.! It could work, although I'm not sure how well being forced to shoot the limbs off things would translate to a film :P
16:15 - moonflash Although I'm inclined to think a Dead Space movie done right might change that. It has got all the right elements, and the concept is arguably better. Probably never gona happen though. :/
16:12 - !J.O.O.E.! Alien is just a masterclass of cinematography. Which is why I think it looks less dated than Aliens.
16:09 - moonflash Doesn't get better than Alien in the sci-fi horror genre. The scene where they enter the cockpit room of the derelict ship is just so awe-inducing... Absolutely perfect the mystery and atmosphere of it.
16:07 - !J.O.O.E.! To be honest I regard Alien 3 as a return to that. Stuck on a prison planet with no working technology or weapons.
16:04 - Apothecary Alien will always be the best to me because that was really the only one that had a strong horror vibe, after that I think it became more sci fi focused. Not that I don't love sci fi, but a blend of both is preferable

Hurry up and grab a two-four of PBR and hop in the station wagon, this is going to be one hell of a trip. The boys of Red Fang are going to take on a cross-country musical journey, and you're going to like it.
Okay, so it's not THAT mind blowing, but Red Fang have made a decent album. "But BoxCar, aren't you in love with this band? Shouldn't it be better than "decent"?" Actually no, it's just decent. Why? Because the album has been done before, you're not finding anything new or really that extraordinary. Sure the music is slamming, but I can name 5 bands on the spot that play something similar. Also, this album seems to have quite a bit of filler, especially the song "Throw Up", that my friends, is 6 minutes of boring. Another nitpick is the effects, however these are both pluses, and negatives, a negative being the overuse of said effects, especially the "squeal" this is most notable at the end of "Wires", for almost a minute it blocks out and detracts from the other awesome riff displayed. They add a nice plus when not overused however, almost ambient at some points.
Now you must be saying "Holy shit, you really hate this album, what are you some kind of hypocrite Nazi communist?" First of all, those two contradict each other, and second of all, NO! There are enough bangers here to keep me satisfied for a week.
Oh, man the riffs, there are soooo many unique and amazing riffs in this one album, even Jonathon Riffington would have an overload; seriously folks, David and Maurice are monsters wielding those axes. Then there's the vocals, A mix of metal rasp and hard rock clean, they compliment the album perfectly. Throw the drum and bass's groove on top of that, and you've got a killer combo.
Overall, I'm happy with the release, if they cut down the filler and stop going balls out with sound effects they could create a master piece.
Highlights - "Wires" "Hank Is Dead" "Number Thirteen"
