Assault on Precinct 13 (2004 version)- Meh.  I thought it was okay, not great.  I'm not a big fan of Ethan Hawke, but the movie wasn't terrible.  Others might disagree, but I haven't seen the original yet, and now want to, just to see how they match up. 

The Pacifier (2005)- Vin Diesel in a comedy where he takes care of a bunch of kids.  Disney flick.  Based off of this and Fast and The Furious, I'd say Vin isn't that good of an actor, but of the two flicks, I'd pick this over the Fast and The Furious. 

Forrest Gump- Probably my favorite Tom Hanks movie ever.  Gary Sinese was great as Lt. Dan.  Really can't say much about this, since most people seem to have seen it.

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.

Overall, the ladies were not hard to look at.  However, the one black-haired girl who was part of the trio kept making me say stuff like, "Ah!  Turn around!  Turn around!"  I did notice that the director enjoyed watching women strip off black lingerie, especially garters and stockings.

Sterilox drove me completely nuts.  It's surprising that I didn't run up to the TV and put my fist through the screen; I wanted to punch him in the mouth that badly.  Yes, in the mouth.  There was just something about his characterization that set me off.  From what I can tell, it was his trying to act that part, because I chuckled when he said his final line at the end (which was out of character).

Attack From Mars - This was a trade I got from Andrew. I think waxing my wedding tackle would have been less painful. Still, I can't blame Andrew. He did warn me it was bad (the movie, not waxing...stuff).

Which one Boobra? Yeah if that's the one she has a couple of short films in the extras of the SWV copy. Not a one of them could dance, but hey who cares? Her name was/is Natasha ... that's it just Natasha. That movie was a lose parody of Dr Strangelove. It's just so stupid you can't help but like it a little.

You mean that you didn't like watching the one girl sneeze and blow snot for the whole film, until she was actually creating fried egg out of her nose?  And the fat woman eating everything was not funny?  Hideous flick.  Once you get past the last segment of the "movie inside a movie," there is no reason to keep watching, unless you are a completest.

Serial Mom (1994) - Yep, I finally watched it. Fun movie. It lacks the extreme crudeness of John Waters' earliest stuff, but I think once you've shocked people with some of the worst grotesqueries you can come up with, you're better off stretching your creative legs and showing people you're not just a one trick pony. You can still tell it's a John Waters movie what with all the glamor and celebrity given to violence and the lampooning of the media for doing as such. A fun flick with plenty of memorable quotes and a thousand times better acted than any of the early stuff too. Then again, when you're shooting legitimate actors, you pretty much expect that. Sam Waterson is awesome.  Thumbup

The Good Girl.   **1/2 out of ****.   I was expecting a straight up comedy but this movie was more sad than anything else at times. It is about a woman (Jennifer Aniston in a fantastic performance) who is 30, in a boring marriage to what she deems to be a boring man, is in a dead end job and just feeling trapped.  She ends up having an affair with a younger check out clerk at the store she works at and then the problems start.   The 1st half or so of the movie is really strong but then it gets less sturdy as it goes along.  The performances are uniformly great, but the movie never really comes together the way that it should.  I think that this movie got more attention  at the time of its release due to it featuring some fleating Aniston topless activity, but her performance really surprised me.

THE INVASION [2007]

Ostensibly 90 minutes of trailer for a film you're already watching, this version of Jack Finney's novel THE BODY SNATCHERS has less soul than the pod-people (sans pods this go around) who serve as its antagonists.  Connections with 28 DAYS/WEEKS LATER are too numerous to list, but the back-lit and quick footed "infected" who spread the alien organisms through vomit should ring a few bells.  Agonizingly awful quick-cut editing (blatantly attempting to cover up the movie's lack of viability from the start) and more unannounced flash-backs/flash-forwards than I can ever recall having seen in a film are just icing on the cake. 

A message behind the madness is insinuated throughout, but all I got out of it in the end was that the pod-people are considerably better equipped to take care of our planet than us - leading me to wonder why the conversion into them (which, this go around, leaves the host completely intact and ready for a happy vaccination ending) is such a bad thing.  Note to Warner Brothers - car chases, explosions, and gross-out effects do not a worthwhile scifi/horror film make.

This is easily the worst new release I've seen this year and I sincerely hope it never makes back the $50,000,000 spent on it.  What a waste.  There will be more said about it once I get to it in my upcoming five-part retrospective on the Finney novel and it's cinematic adaptations.

Kindest regards,

Kevin P.

Amelie.  **** out of ****. One of the best movies that I've ever seen and I usually despise most French cinema. Audrey Tatou is adorable in the title role and this movie can put a smile on anyone's face.

High Tension.  ***1/2 out of ****.  I realize that this French horror flick is one that people usually either love or hate with not much middle ground.  I happened to like it a lot the 1st time I saw it and my appreciation for it has only grown since then.  As for the infamous and highly controversial twist, I thought that it was well done and adds an extra layer to the film that warrants repeat viewings.

The Saddest Music in the World.  ***1/2 out of ****.  Not a lot of people that I meet have ever seen this movie but it's one of my favorites of the last 10 years.    Isabella Rossellini (who has never been better) plays a very wealthy woman who decides to hold a contest during the Great Depression era to see what the saddest music in the world might be.  Not for all tastes but I've always found this flick to be a little seen treat.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors- Decent enough sequel, better than part 2.  I've been watching the Nightmare series in order, enjoying my box set dvd's.  Nice seeing Laurence Fishburne before he made that stupid Matrix crap.  Still liked him better on Pee Wee's Playhouse, but nice.  Best part of Nightmare 3 for me was Freddy on tv, and the "Welcome to prime time, b*tch!"

The Substitute 2- I guess it's a decent sequel.  I mean, the series pretty much has the same formula, so it can't be hard to make a bad sequel here.  Treat Williams is pretty enjoyable in this.  Nice seeing B.D. Wong before he was on Law and Order: SVU.  But the only gripe I had, was more about why USA network showed this last.  They showed Substitute 4, then 3, then 2.  Eh.  Either way, I liked the series with Treat Williams a bit more than with Tom Berenger.

Night Listener - Meh- got bored with it and turned it off.

Elizabeth - Great period piece, very well done and surprisingly close to the truth on key issues, some liberties and fluff, but very real for a movie. Seen it dozens of times.

Wild Hogs -  it was ok being a middle aged biker myself I can relate to it, I ride with a few friends. but down the road from my house is a Hells Angels clubhouse and they are great guys, invite us in when we roll by even though we're not members. So the story to me was a little contrived from I've seen. Few funny moments but it's not a keeper.

PROM NIGHT-
 
 Watched this last night...ehhh. Jamie Lee Curtis is good in it. Lotsa VERY cheezy disco dancing-in fact...it's laffably bad!
The ONE (count em-ONE) gore scene is a decap of a guy who was pulling a nasty prank on Jamie,the Prom Queen. The head rools onto the runway. It was an ok time waster,I guess. Eh. The best part was the dance scene,which had my son Eddie cracking up!

  It looks like the actors had fun with it,though!  Thumbup Jamie is hot,too!

Desert Commandos (1967) - First time viewing. Umberto Lenzi's WWII action/spy/mission adventure wasn't bad but very very tame. It could've used a few fistfights and sex to spice things up. The Brentwood DVD presents the movie in horrible pan & scan.

Cannibal Ferox (1981) - Long time fave - First time viewing on DVD. The movie is still repulsive (animal violence) but also fun (Giovanni Lombardo Radice). The rest remains a mix of corny acting and bad but bloody effects. Not as shocking as it used to be though.

Stone Cold (1991) - The most underrated action movie from 1991. If one doesn't mind Brian Bosworth's funky mullet and William Forsythe's incredible fat belly then good times are guaranteed.

Grand Theft Auto (1977) - Nice car demolition but yow, the comedy was not very funny.

Hannibal Rising: Unrated (2007) - Enjoyed this. Probably more than I should though.
