PSYCHONAUTS, THE FORGOTTEN CHILDREN (2015):An animated fable about an island inhabited by animals living in a society on the verge of anarchy after an industrial accident has wrecked the economy; a young girl, Dinky, seeks to run away and escape the island with a pair of friends, while Birdboy self-medicates with hallucinatory drugs. A feature-length version of the award-winning short "Birdboy," this is beautiful, heartfelt animation with funny characters (a talking alarm clock, piggy bank and inflatable duck) but not-for-kids themes of drug abuse and economic despair. This movie doesn't have US distribution yet but I sure hope it finds some, it's probably my favorite new movie at the Fantasia Festival. 4.5/5.

Took my now-9-year-old to see "The Secret Life of Pets" yesterday as his birthday gift. It was his first time in a movie theater. Had a blast. It was also my first time in a theater since 2007 - the week my son was born! At that time I took his older brother (who was about 5 at the time) to see Disney's "Underdog."

...hopefully next time I attend a theatrical showing the movie won't have talking animals in it. :D

THE HOLY FLAME OF THE MARTIAL WORLD (1983): Two orphans seek revenge on their parent's murderers, which can only be accomplished by attaining the yin and yang Holy Flame swords. Bonkers kung fu/fantasy action with English-speaking mummies, pink and blue cartoon ghosts, and a killer laugh (literally); delivers all the non-stop mania you hope from in a Shaw Brothers show. I feel lucky to have seen this on a big screen. 4/5.

IN SEARCH OF THE ULTRA-SEX (2015): This porno-pastiche stitches together (non-hardcore) scenes from dozens of adult movies from the 70s to the 90s (and, for some reason, SAMURAI COP) with comic overdubbing to create a science fiction story about aliens making Earthlings horny (in preparation for an invasion, I guess). The clips---which include robot-controlled dildos, lactating Power Rangers, and Mr. Spock getting it on, among other sexy absurdities---can be hilarious, and I would have been happy to see a curated collection of such snippets. The WHAT'S UP, TIGER LILLY?-styled story, however, is lame and juvenile (characters named "General Willy" and spaceships dubbed "Foreskin Five" are typical jokes), on the other hand, and I could have done without them---they're nothing more than an unneeded excuse to enjoy clips that would generally be plenty hilarious without them. 2.5/5

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

Still under the weather today, although at least not having to be taken to the ER in raving delirium!
Anyway, I've watched 3 movies today:

JURASSIC WORLD - Wonderful reboot of the classic 90's franchise, the dinosaur effects are great and the Indominus Rex is a ferocious antagonist for humans and prehistoric reptiles alike! 5/5

CATHOLIC GHOULGIRLS - Three foulmouthed, hard drinking Catholic schoolgirls (moment of confusion - I thought girls got a new blouse every year, but these "teens" were stuffed into blouses that might have fit them in 2nd grade?? What's up with that?) try to survive the zombie apocalypse with their boyfriends.  Zero budget, zero talent, bad lighting, bad editing, so much glorious badness!!!
1/5 regular movie scale, 4/5 bad movie scale

And then there was . . .
THE BEWITCHING - This was a softcore film masquerading as a horror film.  Seriously, cut out all the sex and nudity and the movie's runtime is reduced to less than 15 minutes.    Basically, a witch travels to the mortal world to seduce mortal souls, which is strictly forbidden, and her coven sisters and mistress come after her to bring her to heel and free the men she has ensnared.  Hard to believe a movie with this much nudity could be so boring. 2/5

ATMO HORROX (2016): An "experimental satire" with avant-garde visuals and no comprehensible dialogue, focusing largely on the stalking activities of a monster wearing pantyhose with sweetgum seeds stuck on it over his face and sporting a plume of phallic balloons jutting from his crotch. Plotwise, the film completely baffling, although a theme of society's overindulgence in prescription drugs is apparent. When your movie is weirder than I like them, you know you're in some rarefied air indeed. There is a tiny niche audience for this; hopefully they can find it. 1/5.

    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.
