06.07.07Terror Thursday The Hidden! I remember seeing this on cable as a kid and thinking it was great, then thinking that Denzel Wasthington movie Fallen was basically a Hidden rip-off, then kind of forgetting about it. Until now! To be honest, it got a little slow in parts that I didn't remember, but there's still enough awesoe stuff going on that I liked it a lot. One of the big things I liked about it was all the 80s character actor types that were in it. You had a pre-fat Ed O'Ross (watch the first season of Six Feet Under where he plays the russian flower guy and it's just crazy!), you had the cop guy who looked a little like a meld between Chris Sarandon and Steven Bauer and you had the police lieutenat that was also the white cop in Ruthless People that has that really weird line reading of "identify the body." Even that first guy was Hank Jennings on Twin Peaks. I guess they're all still working on TV or whatever but to me each one of those guys were really quintessential late 80s/early 90s cop types. So it's all the cooler to see them up against some monster alien type who cares about as much for human life as Commando-era Schwarzaneggar. Except for the slow parts, it's a pretty steady stream of car chases, explosions, and random acts of violence against innocent bystanders. Good times.
