Weird movie which doesn't really know what it is. It's pretty great and pretty bad at the same time.
Glengarry Glen Ross - Enjoyable film. Al was great as usual.
The Factory - Really good thriller - Much better than many of the reviews would suggest.
fun movie although a few occurrences were quite sad..but all around fun!
Yes. I think it's like a futuristic Noir film. It struck me as beautiful and intelligent. I'm digging the AR/VR age we are approaching.
I added Zama because I watched it in the same night and found it the polar opposite type film, but beautiful and intelligent too.
cool, gonna check then both out. : )
saw it and enjoyed it! so did my wife.
If you dont mind subtitles and a meandering plot Zama might be ok. Highly recommend Anon, however.
thanks...I don't mind subs...
I don't mind subtitles at all - I often have them on anyway - but it does drive me crazy when the subtitle comes up what seems like 2 seconds or more before the actual dialogue is spoken.
Tick F&^*ing Tock (2018) Documentary on anarchic Australian comedy trio the Doug Anthony Allstars who, at the point of being offered a BBC TV show and getting involved with Richard Branson, disbanded for reasons unknown to two thirds of the members. Tim Ferguson's monologue at the end has actually broken up marriages.
Evil Dead II
I hope so because the picture quality of this DVD is not the greatest.
Something about it reminded me of Prisoners. Not as good but along the same lines. Call it a poor mans Prisoners. Solid 7/10 from me.
Women in Cages (1971) - Clearly this is one of Roger Corman's infamous twofers, featuring the same sets and virtually the same cast as The Big Doll House but the tone here is completely different. This movie has a much grimmer Jess Franco vibe and is utterly humorless in it's depictions of torture and debauchery. There isn't even any shirtless, hairy Sid Haig comedy relief in this one. What we do get is Pam Grier, this time as the sadistic head matron, which is a fun twist that Pam seems to be particularly enjoying. It's fascinating how virtually the same story can presented so differently; sort of like a very perverse remix of the original film. Neither Corman nor Jack Hill have their names anywhere near this one, crediting it to Gerardo de Leon, director of Filipino gross-out movies like Dr. of Blood Island. I guess they wanted to protect their reputations?!?!
The Mysterians (1957) - Ishiro Honda apparently made this film specifically to showcase the new Tohoscope Widescreen process, so there is a lot of vivid, colorful action here, even though it doesn't really amount to a whole lot plotwise. The Mysterians are from a lost planet and send a robot monster that looks like a giant anteater to terrorize Tokyo as a sign of their superior power. Then they ask for a small plot of land and the right to date Earth girls but we don't let just anyone date our women, so it's war. The aliens wear bright color coordinated space suits and motorcycle helmets that make them look like Bob Log III, and they're definitely up to something. Honda hammers home his message that we all need to learn to work together if we're going to protect the Earth from giant anteater robots. Amen brother.
yes, I can see that.
that's too bad...
Old school slasher movie. Fun if you're into this kind of thing.
Brawl In Cell Block 99 - Very good - Absolutely BRUTAL!!!!!!
BD? if so how is it?
