FIRST MAN (2018): Biopic about Neil Armstrong, alternating between his domestic life and his work on the Gemini missions that eventually landed him on the moon. There are moments of tension and drama, but overall it's as stoic and sedate as its subject. 3/5.

SUSPIRIA (2018)  OK, I don't always "get" Dario Argento's movies, and the 70's classic by this title was no exception.  The remake, also directed by Argento, is a little easier to follow.  An American dancer comes to Berlin to enroll in an exclusive dance school where students have a way of occasionally disappearing. Set in the 70's, this is a moody, atmospheric, and very creepy film that I thoroughly enjoyed.  (4.5/5)

^^ I don't think Argento directed the Suspiria remake -- in fact, I read recently that he wasn't very fond of it...

On topic:
"The Big Racket" (1976) 

A ruthless protection ring holds an Italian city in a grip of terror, until a two-fisted police inspector (Fabio Testi) goes outside the law and organizes a vigilante squad to take on the bad guys on their own turf. This gritty "polizzioteschi" flick takes a while to get going, but the last half is pretty much non stop sleaze and ultra-violence, therefore I was entertained.

The SUSPIRIA remake was directed by Luca Guadagnino, an art house director who never made a horror movie before. I liked it, but not as much as the original. But it was the right way to do a remake---same basic story, completely different style.

OK, I stand corrected - I guess what threw me off is that they referred to it as a Dario Argento film in the credits.

the 6th Day (2000) - this looks a bit like total recall, but isn't as good... but is still pretty good. The directing and writing aren't stylish enough. They seem like they knew they had a good idea but were sheepish in carrying it out. I liked the concept though and the villain guy was seedily awesome. 4/ 5

"Top Line" (aka "Alien Terminator," 1988)
Franco Nero is a down-on-his-luck historian/author who stumbles into the story of a lifetime - an ancient alien spacecraft crashed in the jungles of Colombia. However, some shadowy forces want the UFO to remain top secret, and soon they all come gunning for Franco and his lovely lady sidekick.
This Italian schlock fest is a pretty standard low rent riff on "Raiders of the Lost Ark" or "Romancing The Stone" till about the three quarter mark, when it randomly throws in a cyborg assassin and a goo-spewing extraterrestrial out of nowhere.
Whatever it's trying to rip off, "Topline" (even the title makes no sense!) is cheap, dreadfully dull, and incomprehensible at times due to Nero's thick-as-Ragu accent.
AVOID!

Winchester: Not sure why it was nominated for a Razzy. Seemed like a fairly standard horror to me, acting was fine, sets were good and so on.

ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK (1981)

Directed by the awesome John Carpenter, the movie take us to a futuristic dystopian New York city, now transformed into a big prison. Our antihero Snake is sent there to rescue the president with a very short time limit - his life depends on it.

I love Carpenter's movies and this one is no exception. It's very fun, action packed, and quite suspenseful. The director is certainly a master at creating destroyed and crazy societies, and you totally feel like you're visiting a strange and hostile place. Curt Russel is the definition of 80's coolness. Oh, and the music, also made by Carpenter, is amazing as always; his signature is written all over it.

THE CLOVERFIELD PARADOX (2018): Scientists orbit the Earth attempting to use a particle accelerator to solve the world's energy crisis, but---oops!---accidentally open a portal to a parallel universe. I love the idea that each movie in the Cloverfield universe is made in a different style (I really want to see what they'll do with the romantic comedy CLOVERFIELD, I LOVE YOU), but I think the "confusing sci-fi B-movie with dodgy science" genre was a bad choice for this third entry. A generous 2/5.

VELVET BUZZSAW (2019): An ambitious assistant at an art dealership discovers a valuable cache of paintings by a previously unknown outsider artist, but everyone who tries to profit from them turns up dead. This art world satire slowly turns into a supernatural horror movie, but the melodramatic machinations of the backstabbing, pretentious critics, dealers and artists (including Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Toni Collette and John Malkovich) is the more interesting half; the two movie concepts don't connect as well as they could, but there's a lot of directorial style and enough drama and horror to keep you interested. 3.5/5.

VAMPYRES (2014) - This is a modern remake of the classic 70's vampsploitation pic.
Two lesbian vampires live in  a deserted house in the woods and lure unsuspecting travelers into their home, where they love them to death!
Beautifully filmed with attractive leads and copious amounts of nudity and gore, this one is a great homage to classic film, but has a unique flavor of its own.  The beautiful vampire lovers are gorgeous and sadistic, preying on their visitors without remorse and gleefully devouring them.  Really, an all around great B-movie with all of Joe Bob Brigg's "3 b's" on full display.  4.5/5
