Monster on Campus (1958)- A college professor studying evolution get "bitten" by a dead coelacanth and devolves into a neanderthal with a lust for killing people. Earlier a German Shepard was transformed into a sabertooth Shepard from lapping up some of the water from the thawing fish. Luckily the effects are only temporary.

At first he doesn't realize it's him that's killing people, so he borrows a remote cabin and sets up cameras with a criss-cross of twine to trigger them. He then injects himself with the coelacanth plasma and goes on another rampage.

Not a waste of time, but nothing to write home about either. The film makers did a pretty good job with the transformations and they had a pretty good looking rubber fish.



Live Free or Die Hard (2007)- Bruce Willis is at it again, this time fighting a group of cyberterrorist who are taking down the nations infrastructure starting with the government. At the same time they are killing off the computer hackers who unwittingly helped them.

Bruce teams up with one of the hackers, Justin Long, who you might remember from Galaxy Quest.

The action is pretty good, but goes way over the top sometimes, especially the last 15 minutes of the film.

Good popcorn movie.



Shooter (2007)- Mark Wahlberg plays a retired Marine sniper who gets duped into an asassination plot by a clandestine group run by Danny Glover. There is an involved plot involving a pipeline in Ethiopia and Wahlberg get blame for taking a shot a shot at the president.

He goes on the run and is helped by his spotter's widow and a young FBI agent who thinks things about the case don't add up.

Lots of over the top action in this one too.



The Running Man (1987) - Arnie takes the fall for a massacre and then breaks out of prison. He is then caught and put into the ultimate reality show.

Arnold is, well Arnold. I have to say Jesse Ventura is the gayest you every see him as one of the trackers named Captain Freedom.

I also always suspected Richard Dawson was a closet a***ole, I think that came through here.



Enemy Mine (1985)- Earth expands into the galaxy and gets into a war with the Drac, a reptilian race who happen to be asexual. Dennis Quade is a hot shot fight pilot who crashes on a barren planet while pursuing a Drac fighter (Lou Gossett).

After a couple of attempts at killing each other, the two enemies realize they must cooperate to stay alive on the hostile world where they crashed. Eventually they learn to trust each other and become friends.

I always thought Lou Gossett should've gotten an award for this part, especially for the female persona he takes on when he becomes pregnant. He did a great job of expressing himself under all that makeup. He actually suggested the Drac's gurgling voice (something he did as a kid).

I've always liked this movie, although some may be turned off by it's almost preachy approach to tolerance.

Monster on Campus (1958)

they had a pretty good looking rubber fish.

They must have been proud of it, considering how often they haul it out and devote screen time to it. Any normal fish would have thawed out and stunk up the place worse than a one dollar brothel.

FRACTURE (2007) - See thread here.
Good movie overall.

YELLOW (2006)
Aside from seeing Roselyn Sanchez (Rush Hour 2) naked this movie didn't have much to offer. Wannabe dance flees crappy life to find better life as a dancer, but looks for love and finds it then must choose between love of guy and love of dance, even if it's not the dance she wants to do ... a stripper. Cliche start to stop and fair acting at best. Watch it only if it's free.

See what I mean ... worth looking at!

DECOYS II (2007) - Almost as good as DECOYS I ... and that ain't saying much. If it wasn't for the random nudity this film would have nothing to offer. It qualifies as a truly Bad movie.

THE MESSENGER (2007) - Another good one ... spooky scary with a nice twist at the end. Overall predictable as most horrors are, but that's ok it was still a decent movie and worth watching.

Seen quite a few others too, but that's the short list of a few I've seen lately.

300 (2007) - Crazy machismo fights and Gerard Butler going balls out. Lots of fun to watch, an orgasm for the eyes. My only regret: we never get the see the big mongoloid with the blades for arms do any fighting!  Thumbup

Pathfinder (2007) - Karl Urban sucks, Clancy Brown was wasted (his face was covered the entire time and his lines were all spoken in Norwegian!?) and the pacing came to a screeching halt about half way through the movie. Plenty of violence though to keep my from turning it off. Brains, blood, impalements and even a severed eyeball! Overall? Meh.  Thumbdown

Hard Candy (2005) - One big brutal mind-f*ck of a movie that still had me scratching my head over a few parts by the time the end credits rolled. A great concept executed excellently with stellar acting and eye candy direction. Not for the squeamish though. This is how Dateline's "To Catch a Predator" shows should be done!  Thumbup

Pink Flamingos (1972) - Yes, I finally got around to seeing John Waters' infamous exploitation classic. It's every bit as unsettling and grotesquely charming as I'd heard. Horribly acted in that almost endearing way and so disturbing at times even I found myself putting up a hand to block my eyes from being tortured. Not to be viewed by pregnant women, people with weak hearts, or anyone with any semblance of good taste in their bodies. Otherwise, everybody else is good to go!  Thumbup

Logan's Run (1976) - Always loved this movie. This was my first time viewing on DVD. I'm surprised no remake of this sci-fi classic has been announced, but on the other hand I'm glad it didn't happen yet. Just leave the classics alone, damnit.

Don't Look In The Basement (1973) - First time viewing, even though I had the (budget) DVD sitting on my shelf for ages. Surprisingly fun and well made mental-terror with a kick ass ending.

Daredevil: Director's Cut (2003) - First time viewing of the Director's Cut, which appeared to be a bit more violent than the Theatrical version. Daredevil is pretty slick and Affleck is even tolerable. Its not in the Spider-Man league but had its fun moments.

Relentless IV: Ashes To Ashes (1994) - First time viewing. Always had a soft spot for Relentless & Relentless II. Part III didn't really suck but I enjoyed IV just a tiny bit more. Must be my fondness for Famke Janssen :)

I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) - Still holds up and delivers the Slasher goodies. Haven't seen this one in a while so I totally forgot how bad of an actor Ryan Phillippe really is. His wooden performance didn't hurt the movie though, rather providing more fun cheese which made IKWYDL even better in my opinion.

                                         I first saw this one in the mid-80's on NY's channel 9 Chiller show. One of the most underated movies of the 7O's,and a classick,IMO. The toungless old lady,the horny basket case,Danny , the Judge, Sarge, and especially the "You stole my BAYYYY-BEEE! " lady-all crack me up!   BounceGiggle  And of course,Popsicle guy!!!

Monster On Campus - I remember renting a mildly liking this film. The guy cuts himself on the fish as it's being delivered. Turns him into a monster. Fun b/w monster film.  Thumbup

The Running Man (1987) - One of my favorite Arnold films. Not just because it's Arnold eithier, but because of the whole future world concept.  Thumbup Thumbup

Logan's Run (1976) - Another great future world Sci-Fi film concept. When citizens come of age they must die.  Thumbup Thumbup

Don't Look In The Basement (1973) - Wacky low budget crazy film. Worth a look.  Thumbup

300 (2007) - Great film for what it was. One of the best of 2007.  Thumbup Thumbup

Pink Flamingos (1972) - Saw it in the 80's and still haven't had the chance to finish it.

Been wanting to see Shooter, Pathfinder (I felt it was going to be bad), and Yellow looks good.

Arnold is, well Arnold. I have to say Jesse Ventura is the gayest you every see him as one of the trackers named Captain Freedom.

I also always suspected Richard Dawson was a closet a***ole, I think that came through here.

Awesome movie. Probably my favorite Arnold flick thanks to the shear over-the-topness that tips the scales nicely. How can you go wrong with a movie about a gameshow where convicted criminals are hunted through an apocalyptic cityscape by other killers, each with their own action figure theme! Buzzsaw, the chainsaw wielding biker tuff! Sub-Zero, the ice hockey goalie from the rinks of Hell! Dynamo, the big fat opera singer with light-up armor (mohawk included!) that shoots electrical blasts from his fingertips and comes with his Dynamo Golf Cart of Doom!

And yes, Captain Freedom was probably Ventura's gayest looking role with his bad toupee and mustache. However, I think his part in the "Tag Team" pilot along with Roddy Piper may have been just a little bit more all around homo-erotic.

Also, I never thought Richard Dawson was a closet assh*le, I figured he was always a boozing, womanizing, self-absorbed prick... but in the "I wish I was that prick" kinda way. Speaking of penises, has anyone else seen Superbad yet? On to add to my recent viewing list:

Superbad (2007) - Holy crap, I don't think I've laughed this hard at a movie since... well... last year when I saw Clerks II. I know that "the funniest movie I've seen in a year!" isn't nearly as impressive as "the funniest movie I've seen in a decade!" or "the funniest movie I've ever seen!", but don't let that dampen my praise. Seth, Evan and Fogell are three high school friends who do nothing but hang out watching internet porn together ("Vagtastic Voyage" anyone?) and letting life generally dump all over them, wind up invited to the biggest graduation party of the year. The only catch: they've agreed to pick up the booze. Now, with their final days together waining (Fogell and Evan are going to college together in the Fall while Seth was rejected), they need to rely on the wormy "wanna-be a gangster while still wearing a Metallica shirt" Fogell to convince the lady at the liquor store that he's a 25 year-old Hawaiian organ donor named "McLovin" (because calling himself Mohammad would've just been stupid...). He gets punched out by a robber before things can come to a viable conclusion, the cops are called, and Seth and Evan leave Fogell to deal with his side of the story while they head off in search of a suitable alcoholic replacement... without fake IDs of their own and without any money since Fogell had their entire booze budget. Seriously, this is the funniest damn movie and it makes me wish I'd seen Knocked Up when I had the chance instead of being scared off by the "heartfelt child raising" crap that the trailers threatened me with. There are two words I'm going to leave everybody with and I recommend everybody stay for the first half of the end credits when I say this: dick drawings.  Thumbup Thumbup

Kiki's Delivery Service - a story about a 13 year old witch who must live on her own in another city for one year.  An excellent film from Studio Ghibli.  This film was also the last voice acting job done by the late Phil Hartman.  A good movie for children or animation fans in general.

Kiss Me Quick - Lots of women in black lingerie stripping for the camera as a faux Dracula/Dr. Frankenstein narrates for a hideously, smugly, stupid alien.  The camera work is first notch, some of the women are good eye candy, but parts of the movie do drive you nuts.  Watching the one woman on the huge rubber band, shake the booty fat off machine, was one such scene.  Who found that attractive?  Oh, and I wanted to punch the alien guy in his mouth.  That urge lasted the whole darn movie.

The Day After Tomorrow - This film had more problems than I could count.  It also went hugely heavy on the glurg, especially at the end.  The plain fact that the temperature could drop hundreds of degrees in moments, without any wind, might have sprained my brain.

The Host - Good monster flick.  I really loved the creature's design and its opening rampage was great.

Undead - This film tried to hard to make the alien conspiracy nut fisherman into a cool character.  Case in point:  the triple shotgun.  And, while the plot twists and things were interesting, I have to wonder why anyone would suspend thousands of people in the air on a planet that was home to a species which had invented air travel.

Kiss Me Quick (1964) is great it is one of, if not my favorite nudie cutie from the 60's ... yes it is stupid and often times makes little sense but does that really matter? And Sterilox in his rather sad Stan Laurel impersonation he wasn't that bad was he? IF you have not seen this film I highly recommend it as a standard of it's genera.

A good anime film and a good introduction to Japanese animation director Hayao Miyazaki, who has been compared favorablely to our own Walt Disney. If one liked that film, one might like to try some of Miyazaki's other films "Howl's Moving Castle," "Spirited Away," "Princess Mononoke," "My Neighbor Totoro," etc.

This weekend I saw -
SERAPHIM FALLS - A beautifully photographed but overly artsy Western starring Pierce Brosnan and Liam Neeson.  Watchable but SLLOOOWWW and the ending is rather anticlimatic.

KILLER KILLER - Seven serial killlers wake up to find their maximum security prison has been replaced with a crumbling old asylum they cannot leave, and are stalked by a pretty young blonde who takes on the form and garb of their last victim, before killing them in the fashion in which they had dispatched their victims.  Watchable but not great.

O BROTHER WHERE ART THOU - Seen it multiple times, and still love it.  The whole idea of setting the story of the Odyssey in 1930's Mississippi was sheer genius, and the Cyclops, the Sirens, and the evil Sheriff are all over-the-top awesome!

I've seen My Neighbor Totoro and loved it.  I have Howl's Moving Castle on DVD and have not watched it yet.  I have not seen Princess Mononoke, nor Spirited Away but I plan to soon.
