I don’t know exactly what the big deal is, this is a much talked about and loved movie but now that I’ve finally watched it… I wasn’t blown away. It was a good movie, just not an instant classic. I do like the mix of supernatural and 80’s action. Kurt Russell is pretty funny in this as is Kim Cattrall. Mainly I liked the make-up, special effects and costuming. Everyone looked really weird and there were some strange effects like a floating eyeball monster and some epic almost anime-like sword fights in mid-air. John Carpenter went pretty weird on this film, I can see why some people love it, maybe I would have liked it better if I would have saw it when I was younger.
