that keeps on stinking with each addition Purge movie...
Holmes & Watson
"hey is that Billy Zane?"
"where is the bar in this canoe?"
I Married a Witch (1942) starring Veronica Lake, on Criterion Blu-ray. Wonderful movie, great fun! And she was so beautiful...
Split - Thoroughly enjoyable!!
Saw Replicas today at the theatre starring Keanu Reeves.
Not a bad Sci-fi/Thriller movie about human cloning. Some of the same morality issues are brought up in this movie as in other similar movies and Frankenstein movies. If you are used to Keanu Reeves' acting, you will see nothing new here in that regards. His "Keanu Reeves School of Acting" is front and center in this one too. LOL
Definitely worth a matinee price if you are a fan of such Sci-fi/thrillers and if you can tolerate Keanu Reeves (personally, I like him and always have.)
In The Valley Of Elah - Superb - Very sad.
Watched Brian DePalma's Obsession today. Pretty good I would say. Great cinematography and good performances from Lithgow, Robertson and Bujold. An obvious homage to Vertigo but that's ok by me.
The Churchills (2017)
A Melissa McCarthy double feature: "The Happytime Murders" and "Life Of The Party"
Just got back from seeing “If Beale Street Could Talk”.
What a fantastic film. Don’t see it, if you are feeling vulnerable...
I'm tempted to double dip but I'm happy with the region free Arrow.
Split. Great performances and now I am caught up for Glass.
I Dream of Wires (2014) Documentary about the rise, fall and resurrection of the modular synthesiser. Best bit: one guy says if they had the modules they have now ten years ago he never would have left his bedroom.
I watched two this past night:
West Side Story - the 4th Natalie Wood movie I'd seen in 3 or 4 days, so a little hard believing her as a Puerto Rican (more than usual), but otherwise it's a great film. And a much better musical than the last one I saw (Gypsy, 1962).
And the last movie I saw was:
Sullivan's Travels (1941). I really liked this movie very much; I'd seen it ages ago but didn't remember too much, except some as it occurred, it was so long ago. I thought this a pretty great movie though the stuff I read online sure wants to change my mind.
I last watched DOA (1949) on VHS
Man Watches Film: The Big Short (2015)
'Colette' (2018) - watchable if unexceptional costume drama.
Really enjoyed this!!
What did I miss?
Haha...Take it you wasn't impressed?
It was OK. See the review for why it didn’t do it for me.
Post-apocalyptic Army deserters hole up in an abandoned laboratory which also happens to be home to a slimy, carnivorous mutation. Hilarity ensues.
This so-'80s-it-hurts video store favorite is pretty much "Alien" on a cheese-and-crackers budget, with cheap sets (the "lab complex" looks suspiciously like a self-storage warehouse) and even cheaper creatures and special effects. It's so bad, it's almost good.
Fun fact: a few years after appearing in this flick, actress "Kim McKamy" would become better known as '90s adult video queen Ashlyn Gere. I suppose if "Creepozoids" represents the type of "legit" movie roles she was getting, a porn career may actually have been a step up.
"Trilogy Of Terror" (1975)
Dan "Dark Shadows" Curtis directed this "Twilight Zone"-ish made-for-TV horror anthology, featuring three spooky stories written by Richard "I Am Legend" Matheson. Karen Black appears in all three tales, playing different characters each time - a teacher being blackmailed by a student, a pair of feuding sisters, and a woman being chased through her high-rise apartment by a killer cursed African doll. She achieved instant cult-icon status thanks to that third segment, which scared the hell out of an entire generation of '70s kids. This "Trilogy" is lots of fun and still holds up pretty well today.
I'm watching Halloween 3: season of the witch on the horror channel right now. Its a good few years since I've seen it last. I remember really liking this one. Not really part of the Halloween franchise (no Michael Myers) but it's all the better for it.
Super Troopers 2
