The Revenant" (2015)

A lone frontiersman (Leonardo DiCaprio) survives a grizzly bear attack, being left for dead in the wilderness, and brutal winter weather so he can make his way back to civilization and get revenge on the guy who killed his son. 
Westerns are usually not my meat at all but this one drew me right in. A beautifully filmed epic of survival (based on a true story!) that earned Leo a well deserved Oscar.

THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER (2017): A cardiologist's odd relationship with a teenage boy reveals a secret about his past, and will lead him to a terrible dilemma in the future. Yorgos "The Lobster" Lanthimos' first official stab at a horror movie is every bit as disturbing as you might hope---which is to say, every bit as disturbing as his comedies and dramas. 4/5.

THE STRANGE ONES (2017): A young teen boy and a man on the lam travel to a cabin in the woods. What looks like it's going to be a slow thriller develops into a slow drama; helped by a low-key but effective performance from the young lead in a tough role, the filmmakers do a pretty good job with no budget to speak of. 2.5/5.

"Clive [Barker]'s idea of a great time is to have a nightmare about a woman with three heads and no skin who flays your body with a pitchfork. To give you some idea, NIGHTBREED has over 200 pus monsters, including one guy with a crescent moonhead like the McDonald's commercial and a fat guy with snakes that pop out of his stomach and eat your face off, and these are the GOOD GUYS. These are the people we're supposed to LIKE."-Joe Bob on NIGHTBREED

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

KILLING GROUND - This is an Australian film on Netflix right now.  A doctor and his fiancée go on a camping trip in a remote scenic park.  They arrive at their camp and see another tent pitched just upriver from them, with no sign of the occupants.  Gradually, the story of two camping families plays out: the main couple enjoying the wilderness, and the family of four - two parents, a beautiful teen daughter, and a one year old baby in the other tent.  But, as the story unfolds and the two families never see each other or interact, you realize that it is two stories in two different timelines: the family of four was at the campsite a few days before.  What happened to them?  Two vicious convicts from a nearby town happened on the teenage daughter sleeping in the car and wound up brutally murdering the whole family, except for the toddler, who wanders off into the woods. Then the doctor and his girl find the baby - and the ex-cons find them.  This was a hard movie to watch; the doctor is a coward and the ex-cons are two of the most loathsome villains imaginable.  The film never flinches in showing their evil and brutality.  Well done but a difficult viewing. 4/5

It Happened tomorrow (1944) - decent Twilight Zone-light style time waster. A reporter gets a hold of tomorrows newspaper and attempts to use it to work events in his favor, with very mixed results. Linda Darnell plays a "Nightmare Alley" type fake psychic as part of an act with her Dad. She looks good and is more compelling than the male lead Dick Powell, who doesn't make a huge impression but does well enough I guess.

Here they all are



4/5 not earth shattering but they have fun with the concept and its fun to see what will happen when he goes to where, say , a robbery happens and knows its going to happen but not like what to do about it

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
