But I'm a Cheerleader! (S: Natasha Lyonne). A naive high school girl gets sent to a camp to cure her of lesbianism. Comedy with a bitter taste. There is a lot of talent in the cast for what was a weird, low-budget comedy. RuPaul plays a recovered homosexual who's trying to teach gay teenage boys to be real he-men. (Tubi.)

The Lego Batman Movie- hadnít seen it since I went to it in the theater. Such a fun movie. Good jokes, fun references including all the random Rogues Gallery villains. Will Arnett makes for a fun Batman, but all the voice actors are great. Just a really solid movie for Batman fans.

When Evil Lurks (2023)

Director/Writer DemiŠn Rugna's initial bursts of unpredictable & frenetic energy echoed that of Dawn of the Dead (2004).

Sadly, for as polished & mean this Argentine possession film is, it flounders in its second-half, struggling to maintain its pace.

The Exorcist: Believer (2023)

Director David Gordon Green's film isn't a horrible film, though it isn't a particular good one either. It's just there.

At least the possession make-up on Olivia O'Neill & Lidya Jewett looks great throughout.

A Haunting In Venice (2023)

Although I had not seen the previous films in the Hercule Poirot franchise, I enjoyed my time spent with this entry, mostly due to Haris Zambarloukos' beautiful cinematography.

Nightbreed (1990)

Pacing issue aside, this film remains of one of my favorite Horror/Fantasy films.

It was great re-visiting it on Scream/Shout! Factory's recent 4K UHD release.

Totally Killer Amazon Prime
Kiernan Schipka. Directed by Nahnatchka Khan. 2023
When the infamous "Sweet Sixteen Killer" returns 35 years after his first murder spree to claim another victim, 17-year-old Jamie accidentally travels back in time to 1987, determined to stop the killer before he can start.

I don't know if you'd call it a spoof or a pastiche, but "Totally Killer" proudly borrows from a few different films (and name-checks "Back to the Future") to give you a Horror Comedy mash-up. It just tries too hard to turn film references into a story to be satisfying for me. And most of the characters, -particularly the female lead, -are pretty obnoxious.



The First Nudie Musical FreeVee
Stephan Nathan, Cindy Williams. Directed by Bruce Kimmel and Mark Haggard. 1976
The son of famous studio owner is forced to make porno films to keep the bankrupt studio from being made into a shopping center. In an attempt to get back on the high ground he makes a nudie musical.

I remember this coming out back in '76, and barely getting a release. I knew it was a spoof of '70s Porn without the explicit sex (somewhat like Kevin Smith's "Zach and Miri"). The cast was a mix of legit comic actors who didn't strip along with some background actors who provided the full-frontal nudity. Needless to say, it tanked, but I was always curious about it. Most of the talent in front of and behind the camera would go on to sitcom careers in the '80s; there's a lot of Gary Marshall vets in here. It's all very genial and very smutty, a couple of the songs are clever and some of the jokes work. Younger viewers are going to find a lot of it corny, but I was amused by it. The picture quality is rough.

Mechanic: Resurrection FreeVee
Jason Statham. Directed by Dennis Gansel
The most dangerous hitman in the world, Arthur Bishop thought he had put his murderous past behind him when his most formidable foe kidnaps the love of his life.

I barely remember "The Mechanic", -I tend to confuse it with Statham's other remake "The Killer Elite". Neither lived up to their originals, and those originals weren't that good in the first place. That being said, this is a fairly routine Thriller that begins with an instant, unconvincing romance with Jessica Alba, and the introduction of an old friend played by Michelle Yeoh, who's there to show that while Bishop is a retired assassin, he's still a decent guy. The film picks up once "Bishop" is given three difficult executions to accomplish in order to save Alba. Tommy Lee Jones also adds some of his usual flavor with a ten-minute role in the final third. It's watchable, but not a moment of it is believable or convincing, especially if you're the type that needs to believe or be convinced.

Showtime

One partygoer Tess, a military veteran (Maggie Q) who is fighting her addictions and her difficulty at fitting in with other people--leads the women in making a stand against the attackers as they fight back in an effort to save themselves over the course of a single dark night.

It started out ok but then became kind of generic

Saw- I had never watched any of these movies. Tried to watch the first one a while back but didnít finish it. Watched it all the way through tonight and truthfully it was pretty good. There are some gross and disturbing moments in it but really it wasnít as bad as I was expecting.

From what Iíve heard it sounds like the sequels delve more into being torture movies. Not sure if Iíll watch them all or not but I might watch the first three and Saw X at least.

The series is heavily serialized. Saw I-7 are all interconnected. You can't really skip movies because they all (the original 7) end in cliffhangers. Jigsaw is loosely tied into the original 7 and Spiral is a standalone movie. The new Saw X ties into the original series. But, I know it's unlikely you'll get to that anytime soon.

I like the series, but there are some bad ones. I think it depends on how well you can stomach some of the violence. If grisly horror violence makes you uncomfortable, then maybe it's not for you. The movies do get more violent.

I love Maggie Q, but this was a horrible movie.

I thought from what Iíve read that the newest one takes place between the first and second. I figured Iíd be able to just watch it and get the gist of whatís going on.

Seems like a lot of people like the first three best from what Iíve heard. After Jigsaw dies (Iíve already read spoilers) is where I hear it most goes downhill.

The first movie actually has a relatively decent story and is a good mystery. Very simple movie but effective. Iíll see how far I go with the series. Not really into torture movies so Iíll see how much I can stomach.

Yes Saw X takes place between I and 2. So yeah if you want to make a trip to the theater, you should be able to follow it. The plot is standalone, but there is an Easter egg in it (if you watched it in release order) That's why I wasn't sure you would want to watch it now. it is the best reviewed of the entire series.

Expend4bles (2023)

The film is surprisingly dull when Jason Statham, Iko Uwais & Tony Jaa aren't on-screen, as charisma is sorely lacking in the rest of the cast.

Even so, the film's final act is entertaining enough to push through the film's shortcomings.

V/H/S/85 (2023)

While it isn't the worst entry in the series (V/H/S: Viral), I didn't enjoy it as much as V/H/S/99 (2022).

There isn't an obvious weak entry, though Mike P. Nelson's pair of films are an absolute highlight, towering above all.

Creature (1985)

Director William Malone's film is a clear rip-off of Alien (1979) but it remains a whole lot of fun.

The cast is solid, as is the simple but effective set-design and features more gore than I was expecting.

In addition, Klaus Kinski is hilariously creepy in this one.

The Creator (2023)

Director Gareth Edwards' film is absolutely beautiful visually but is bogged down by a derivative script and a flat performance from John David Washington.

Centipede Horror (1982)

Previous to my initial viewing, I had only heard of this film through the grapevine, as it was heavily bootlegged for years at various Horror Conventions.

While it doesn't have the break-neck pace of The Boxer's Omen (1983), Keith Li's film earns its reputation for being a gross but well-made entry into the genre.

Of the two films Nikko International Productions financed, I prefer this one over Red Spells Spell Red (1983).

Fatal Termination (1990)

Fairly average Hong Kong Action films anchored by absolutely bat-shit stunt work
