There is an attempt to bring it back under a new name, Curlie's.org.

You might check resource-zone to see if you can't get your old account reactivated.

This is the only re-telling of Sherlock Holmes I've embraced, and practically the only version of the stories, I've watched that I approved of. I did not expect to like Sherlock and I do. I grew up watching the Jeremy Brett series with my dad on Mystery! in the 1980s (Vincent Price creeped me out til Edward Scissorhands made him seem nice) and if your beginning comes from seeing something that faithful to the source material (and Holmes so masterfully played as he was by Brett) it leaves you a purist. But Sherlock was (it's over, right?) is well worth seeing and a lot of fun.

Dang, now I may have to re-watch to spot the implication Kevin cited....

Witchdoctor of the Livingdead (1985)

Yes, I typed the title correctly. That IS the title on the movie.

I want to write some comments about this movie, but, honestly, words fail me. I don't know if I want to give it a 0/5 or a 5/5.

Just watch the first five minutes of the movie, and you'll understand. All I can say is that it just gets weirder and more awesomely awful with each scene after that.

! No longer available

Two warnings:

1.  It does show a real goat's throat being cut, so PETA-friendly folks should not watch the full movie. The first five minutes contain no goat-related violence.

2.  If Youtube doesn't block this, I'm gonna be posting it as the first episode of a new series:  Deranged Visions: BSI (Bat s**t Insane). I have at least 4 movies that should fit into that category right now.


Nollywood, right? I want to get into this genre at some point but I need brave souls like you and lester to dive in first and find the best of the "best" for me.


Well, I have that particular movie posted on my Youtube channel:  https://youtu.be/uTFT4nZkGjI

Just go into it realizing it is an uneven 80+ minutes, but it is more fun and funny than boring. And the music and sound effects lifted completely from what sounds like public domain films is Oscar bait if I have ever heard any.

Enjoy!   Cheers

I think you purposely posted this to see if I was lying when I said I read everything  Smile.  OK maybe I don't read EVERYTHING, but I do read a lot of what is posted.

My day wasn't nearly as eventful, but coincidentally, I also had Indian for lunch.  It was a slow day at work so I decided to read about the wives of Henry VIII.  I got through 5 of them quite thoroughly (starting with the last) and will save Catherine of Aragon for later.  I got a free shepherd's crook and carried it home on my 1 1/2 commute.  The guy sitting next to me asked to take a picture of it.  As you can see, I don't have nearly as much breath in my fingers as you.  I hope you can get some rest tonight!

 

I used to be something of an apologist for Henry VIII (maybe subtly rebelling against Catholic school history classes, which were understandably not charitable toward him) but the older I get the more I see him as a narcissistic sociopath and a bit of an overall jerk to boot. I've also always kind of felt for Anne Boleyn in particular, and have figured if ever a king fell for me I'd end up checking out by the same route. (When I was younger I tended to intensely fascinate the men who liked me, and then not always left them better off than before they knew me. Do that to a spiteful king, and well....)

What do you think about him?

BTW, ever read Margaret George's The Autobiography of Henry VIII? Whatever may be said of him, I think she got his outlook on himself right in that novel.

Quote from: clockworkcanary link=topic=149140
Donnie Darko

only saw this recently. mostly out of curiosity.

for a movie that seems to have acquired such a mythical cult status, I was surprised how obviously aimed at teenagers it was. it made me feel about 100!

for some reason I was expecting something darker, a bit more profound, and perhaps more David Lynch-esque?

That's a relief: I was under the impression that I was falling short because I wasn't getting it.  Thanks!

I think DONNIE DARKO is a great movie for teenagers. It will only work if you put yourself in the mindset of a teenager. If you try to approach it as an adult, it falls apart.

I dug the original because it was actually trying to do something different than your average teen angst movie. I think it did a great job with its mix of music, editing, and moody camera work.

On the other hand, the sequel was bad. They missed a great chance to do something cool with what they set up, and the whole thing just didn't work. Not that a lot of people like the sequel.

You know how sometimes when you're alone you'll sing some stupid random stuff instead of the actual lyrics to the song?  Is there a word for that stuff?
Improvisation? Maybe? Sometimes I think the lyrics people think up are better than the ones originally there.

Oh, my.

That was a beautiful and well-written tribute from the heart to a lady whom I'm sure is every bit a fine as you described, and more. As with all mothers, her monuments are the children she brought into the world, who have each touched many lives and changed the ongoing future in ways no one can know. If I can say so, her youngest child is an especially great person, in my view.

You are so right, if we're lucky enough to have loving parents who have invested in us and done their best for us, we should not wait to tell them that we love them, admire them, are grateful to them, and that we appreciate all they've done. (Well, not only our parents, but all those who hold meaning to us.) I've heard funeral eulogies and grown sad that the departed never probably heard those words spoken, and that is sometimes almost as tragic as the loss that inspired them. I wish my grandmother had heard my grandfather at her funeral, pouring out his heart about how wonderful he thought she was. Why'd you wait to say all this, I thought?

Your mother is an extraordinary human being, and I'm so glad you let her know that you think so.

Thanks for sharing this.

You know, I've told my father I'm grateful to him for always---always---having my back in life, sometimes when it seemed like no one else did, and more than a few times when I didn't exactly applaud him for looking out for me. (I think you remember one of those times I'm recalling, lol.) But I'm not sure I've been as forthright in telling my mother I love her, too, for who she is, this sometimes slightly batty, fey, otherworldly and ethereally beautiful Irish creature who is often mistaken for my sister. I think I'll give her an extra long hug when I see her later today, so....your mother helping shape you as the man you are, someone with the forethought and affection to write a tribute to her, has motivated someone else far away to an act of respectful gratitude toward her own mother.

You're a good son, my friend, and inspiring person to know. Your mother is lucky.

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.
