The Hills Have Eyes (1977) — This is one I could've sworn I had seen before and while I think I remembered a few scenes, the rest was a blank. In any case, I thought it was okay for a independent horror film with characters that at least weren't obnoxious. It's nothing special but I suppose entertaining enough. ***/*****

Epix

Kelvin Harrison Jr. and Anthony Majors who hosted SNL last week and Amber Heard playing the mom of the Charlie Plummer character.


It was not bad though not the most likeable characters for the things they do in the movie.

Elizabeth Banks today looks the same as she did in 2006.

Maybe it is another cheesy sports movie but it was not bad and I own it too.

Two opposite extremes of Mark Wahlberg on back to back days.

Not a huge fan but maybe i will look at him differently after Joe Bell


I never knew about this story but it was a touching moving story but probably not for everybody since it is not the most pleasant subject matter.

I was into in in the beginning but then lost interest.

If you hate the idea of M. Night appearing in his movies he takes it to a whole new level in this.

Maniac Cop 2 (1990) Pretty average for the most part outside of the finale with the Maniac Cop exacting revenge while on fire. That was pretty fun, otherwise kind of forgettable film as a whole. ***/*****

HBO

Written and directed by Eddie Huang. He was on the Marc Maron podcast and he is a interesting guy.

I liked it for the characters but the actual basketball scenes or games in the movie were the least interesting part of the movie.

The late rapper Pop Smoke is also in it and Taylour Paige the lead from Zola.

John Carter - Well, I guess for the first 30-45 minutes or so I was like, "Okay, it's not great, but it's not as bad as I was led to believe." Then the rest happened and I was like, "Holy shit, is this ever a bad movie." Like, I'm no fan of that Taylor Kitsch (not sure if I spelled that right) actor, but I initially thought he was serviceable, but good god did the movie just start sucking hard. It was beyond bad. The CGI is okay in the first half, but is downright awful afterwards. Not surprised by all the hate this movie generated...The only good thing I can say is I didn't pay for it...Some former roommate just left it and I can see why...It's too bad, cause I think it was that Andrew Stanton guy that directed it ("Finding Nemo"), and it sucks that this was his first and (I assume) last live-action movie...I don't really follow his career but this one is brutal...

I remember I got that as a free Redbox rental in 2012 or whenever it came out.

Was Dafoe one of the CGI characters?

He was, yeah. It did have a lot of great actors in it...Dominic West was another one, but didn't help...And I honestly didn't even know Willem was in it til I saw the end credits, then I was like, "What the f**k role did he play?". Then I looked it up online and sure enough, he was one of those tall aliens...I doubt he wants that movie on is resume but oh well, like you and me, I doubt most people even noticed...

Maniac Cop 3 (1993) — This one had production issues (for one, the director walked away with only ~50 minutes of footage shot) and it's pretty apparent. This one is just plain bad, with a poor screenplay and some laughable moments that were not in the good-bad variety. And Robert Davi looked like he wanted to be anywhere else. On the plus side, the finale had some okay stunt work but by that point I just wanted it to end. */*****

Josie and the Pussycats (2001) — Entertaining enough music-comedy that at least had me smiling throughout. The core cast with Rachel Leigh Cook, Rosario Dawson and Tara Reid were fun and the satirical element was fun with the incredible amount of product placement. Not familiar with the comic or animated shows beyond seeing a couple episodes here and there, but seemed to capture the tone. Not a big compliment, but it is far better than Jem and the Holograms... ***/*****

This would never end and looking at the clock every 5 minutes.

He never appears in the Snake Eyes costume and completely let down by that.
Spoiler:
Ok in the end but it is too late


Why is it so hard to make a good GI Joe movie?

I guess it is easier with comic books since you have a lot of great source material.

$7 at Amazon so soon

Trick 'r Treat (2007)

Absolutely fantastic from start to finish.

I've never grown tired of re-watching this one!

Summer School (1987)

Currently on HBO Max. I've never seen this movie and I grew up during this era. Mark Harmon, who is mostly known for NCIS, was at one trying to be movie star. He plays a slacker gym teacher who's forced to teach english to a bunch of "losers" or risk losing his job. Kirstie Alley plays his love interest.

It's pretty entertaining for an 80s summer comedy. There's a few familiar faces like Courtney Thorne-Smith and Shawnee Smith as his students.

Dementia 13: Director's Cut (1963)

Director Francis Ford Coppola's film misses the mark on tension, even though its pace is short & breezy.

Even so, there's a decent amount to appreciate here, especially the opening scene as well as a neat Psycho (1960) homage.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021)

Loved this film. McKenna Grace was a fantastic casting and steals every scene she's a part of.

The Gunner Seat in the Echo-1 had smiling like an idiot. So much fun.

I Spit on Your Gave (1978) — A movie I really didn't care much for upon my first viewing (circa 2011) but kind of appreciate more today. Unnerving to say the least with a brutal sexual assault followed by the revenge portion for the third act that's not entirely satisfying but still well done as a whole. One thing I noticed today that I didn't 10 years ago was the lack of a score or soundtrack which gives the movie a haunting tone. Camille Keaton gives a great performance and the guys do well as absolute psychopaths and creeps. ***/*****

Southbound - I just don't know what to say about this one. Not sure whether I liked it, but I'm still thinking about it so I guess that's something.

Rambo: Last Blood - I didn't mind this one. It's still better than Rambo II and Rambo III, but nowhere near as good as the last one, where he was in Laos or Cambodia or wherever. I like how Stallone doesn't commit to doing the PG thing, which a lot of action stars his age do. It was okay. I was actually still shocked at some of the violence. It was an okay movie.

Scream - Because I had to find a way to stream the CFL game last night, I did subscribe to Amazon Prime for the free 30 day thing. So I watched this for like the 20th time (I would've watched it again before, but it's currently in a box at one of three people's houses, as I've been moving around; it doesn't help that my current landlord/roommate opened the day by yelling at me, saying I drank the last of his vodka, only to have his gf come in and be like, "I drank the vodka."...I didn't know what he was talking about so it sucks waking up on Sunday and getting yelled at for something you didn't do....when she came into my room and said that he was just like, "Okay, never mind." Fuck my life)...

Going to watch the other Scream movies tonight...

I started rewatching the Scream movies recently. Watched Scream 2 Friday night. Couldn't decide between Scream 3 and Final Destination 3 tonight. So I dithered till it was too late to watch anything.
(Sorry about your rude wake up call! If someone's first problem on a Sunday morning is, "where's my vodka?", maybe that's not their first problem.)

My wife watched the Disney+ movie Noelle tonight. I caught the last half hour or so (I saw the whole thing last year). As Christmas movies go it was cute, as was Anna Kendrick (and Snowcone). Apparently this one is a new annual tradition, at least for the past couple years. After that I found The Snowman on Vudu for free and we watched that. Not sure if it counts as a movie since it's only half an hour.

The Night House Vudu 4K Streaming
Rebecca Hall. Directed by David Bruckner. 2020
A widow begins to uncover her recently deceased husband's disturbing secrets.

This is a slow-burn character-driven ghost story, -it felt more like something Mike Flanagan would do for Netflix than a recent Theatrical release (which I think says something about the nature of recent Theatrical releases). I saw countless trailers for this leading up to its release and I thought they had revealed way too much, -and, yet, there was a lot more to the story than that, and I couldn't have guessed entirely where it was headed. It's definitely one of those films that has you collecting your thoughts at the end to see if you really understood what was going on. Also, this is a very dark film visually, -the 4K helps but it'll be a test for most home displays.

Hannie Caulder Olive Signature Blu-Ray
Raquel Welch, Robert Culp, Ernest Borgnine, Strother Martin, Jack Elam, Christopher Lee. Directed by Burt Kennedy. 1971
After she is raped and her husband murdered, a woman hires a bounty hunter to instruct her in the use of a gun so she can get her revenge on the three outlaws responsible.
An enjoyable Western "Revenge" film with a great cast. In retrospect it feels like it clearly had an influence of "Kill Bill". Welch isn't a particularly convincing actress but she supplies a visually iconic character, while Culp is terrific as her mentor. The supplements take a more scholarly approach to the film, as if you were seeing it in a college film course. The odd "extra" is the commentary by British director Alex Cox, who clearly has some disdain for the film.

Between the two, I probably would've picked Final Destination 3. I remember looking down on those movies for a while but when I started watching them, it was a blast (although, I know it sounds ridiculous, but I still have never watched the original movie). I enjoyed Scream 3 to an extent (it was the first of the series I actually saw in the theatre), but I'm lukewarm to it now, and feel it's the worst of the series. I actually think Scream 4 was fantastic and the second best of the series. Probably watching that one today...And, yeah, my roomie is a prick but thankfully he's gone til Friday...I'll make sure not to drink his f**king vodka, lol...
