Yesterday I watched Citizen X. It's a movie made in '95 by HBO about the serial killer of the 80s and early 90s in the city of Rostov in Russia. It's a low budget film, but the acting and the story is amazing.
It's on Amazon Instant video for anyone interested.
Oh yes I have seen that and really enjoyed it! Definitely worth checking out. Also it is based on a true story but have not heard anything related to how accurate it is supposed to be.

Ok. Got to watch 14 blades. I was the lucky winner! Thanks again!
I have to say, I hate subtitles. Now that that's outta the way, I really enjoyed this movie. A lot. Even laughed out loud a couple times.
The soundtrack to this movie is insane! No single digit bass drops, but every single driver(23), in my system was active almost the whole time. And the levels were high. Every sound is immediate, and up front(no matter the direction it came from). For this style of film it worked. Maybe not so much for others...I watched at MV-23. This was pretty good. Seemed louder than usual. Twice, I checked to see if dynamicEQ was on! Incidentally, I followed it up with "transformers ". (DVD) This was disappointingly in contrast to 14 blades soundtrack. I actually went up to -15 with dynamicEQ on. The whole thing seemed like it was in "night " mode. Especially after "blades ". Still love it though. For some reason,Shia lebouf has fallen from grace, but he affects me in the same dumb way Jonah Hill does. Can't

Just saw Godzilla for the first time. The story for me was just ok but the LFE was awesome.

Rented "A Single Shot" on blu-ray from Netflix. A rather dark and depressing movie with some characters that are a bit too unbelievable. My main reason for renting it is that I am a big fan of Sam Rockwell and he is very good in it but overall I think the movie is maybe slightly better than it's 50% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Coincidentally, my wife and I just watched A Single Shot and it is all that you said, typ44q--dark, depressing and worth a look.

Looks like I've got some catching up to do, asere. I haven't seen any of those movies. Oh wait, I did see Evil Dead 2 and you're right--good cheesy fun!
