Carnosaur 2. Man, that movie brings nostalgia back for me; another movie I shouldn't have seen as a child, that I saw as a child. Last time I saw this movie, I got a few chuckles out of it. I thought it was more entertaining than the 1st one, even if it was a shameless Aliens rip-off. Plus the raptors looked better.

I was hoping you would mention what is easily one of the worst lines in movie history. Right after the chopper crashes, one of the guys says, "What the hell are we going to do, breathe?" The line was so dumb, I had to watch that scene again to make sure I heard it right.

I'm pretty sure you're saving that half star rating either for Carnosaur 3, or its spiritual sequel Raptor. It may not have "Carnosaur" in the title, but there is no doubt that Raptor is Carnosaur 4. If you thought Carnosaur 2 was a shameless rip-off, wait until you see that movie.

And Hostel, I didn't think that movie was too bad when I first saw it. But Cory, you're probably not going to like the sequels if you decide to watch them.

While the whole torture porn era I think is mercifully over in Hollywood, I think Hostel is the only film that got it right. While the violence went a little silly near the end, especially with the eyeball scene, the story was still interesting and brought up some interesting socioeconomic concepts about that people do when they have too much money and their looking for fun.

Hostel 2 is pretty much Hostel 1 with a female cast, so it makes it a little more twisted and Part 3.....well, it's pretty damn bad.

Good luck with Carnosaur 3 Forest....

"Hostel" does the torture porn thing best. There's enough balance of light-hearted stuff in the set up to make the gooey stuff much more effective. The first half of the movie is "EuroTrip", the second half is "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre". This is still Roth's best work.
