Seed of Chucky (2004)- Pretty decent sequel.  Shows how Chucky adapts to being a father, and the marital strifes that go with that.  Decent enough parody of both the family dramas like Kramer vs. Kramer, and a spoof of it's own franchise.  Nice reference to an Ed Wood classic, "Glen or Glenda."  Makes me want to see a new Chucky movie, if anything to see how he adapts to being a grandfather or something.

My Boss's Daughter- Okay, not good or great comedy flick.  Ashton Kutcher has a crush on his boss's daughter, both of whom think he's gay.  He housesits for the night, with very strict rules.  Then throughout the night, people show up and cause all sorts of hyjinx, including Andy Richter as the drug dealing son with a restraining order and Michael Madsen as the psycho Andy owes money to.  Okay to watch on tv, but I wouldn't buy the dvd or anything.

Malbu's Most Wanted- Jamie Kennedy stars as the white, wannabe gangsta rapping son of California governor candidate Bill Gluckman, played by Ryan O'Neil.  I actually thought it is pretty decent and underrated.  Very funny, and worth checking out.  The two 'thugs' that kidnap Jamie are great.  Plus, any chance to see Kellie Martin on tv is fun.

The Woods (2006) - Not a perfect film, but entertaining enough. Looking forward to Lucky McKee's next movie "Red".

Primeval (2007) - Made for an ok watch. My fifth favorite killer croc/gator flick after Alligator, The Big Alligator River, Lake Placid and Blood Surf.

Escape From Women's Prison (1978) - Lots of sleaze and cheese. Loved it.

Deported Women Of The SS Special Section (1976) - Pacing was rather slow but John Steiner made up for it. His performance was excellent.

Hellgate (1989) - Has about an equal amount of sucky bad and fun cheese. Very bizarre at times.

Private Parts (1997)- Autobiographical movie of Howard Stern's rise to the top of the radio airwaves, and subsequent claim of being the "King of All Media."  Howard turns in a pretty decent performance as a lead actor, but considering it's based on his life, that shouldn't be too surprising.  He's charismatic, funny and at times sweet.  Well worth a look, even for people who don't like Stern all that much.

Zoolander- Ben Stiller stars as obnoxious male model Derrick Zoolander, with Owen Wilson as his enemy/friend.  Will Ferrell also stars, as a fashion designer who is angry over being ousted as the bass player of Frankie Goes To Hollywood.  Pretty decent comedy, but not for everyone either.

Hard Boiled.  ***1/2 out of ****
My personal favorite John Woo flick. One of my favorite action films of all time. Chow Yun Fat has never been better or more cool.

The Replacement Killers.  *1/2 out of ****
A completely wasted opportunity that was supposed to be a vehicle to break Chow Yun Fat into American cinemas.  Mira Sorvino is hot but that's about the only good thing I can say about this piece of crap. Chow deserved much, much better.

The Devil's Rejects.  *** out of ****
Rob Zombie redeems himself after the debacle that was House of 1000 Corpses.  The movie tends to drag a bit in spots and Sheri Moon Zombie is clearly out of her acting league being alongside the always great Sid Haig and Bill Moseley. The infamous hotel scene featuring Priscilla Barnes is the most disturbing scene in the entire film.

Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger Part IV- Well, off the bat Troma apologizes for Toxic 2 and 3.  So that's always a good sign.  The Toxic Avenger 4 is apparently the "Real" sequel to the 1985 classic film by Lloyd Kaufman.  The Diaper Mafia takes hostage the Tromaville School for the Very Special, and it's up to Toxic Avenger and his sidekick Lardass to stop it.  In the school we are introduced to some of Tromaville's 'special' people, including Sweetie Hunny and Tito the Retarded Rebel.  An explosion occurs and an alternate reality ensues, where the Toxic Avenger is sent to Amortville, Tromaville's exact opposite.  In turn, The Noxious Offender shows up in Tromaville.  The Noxious Offender is evil and starts destroying Tromaville.

Pretty decent flick.  Liked the appearances by Sgt. Kabukiman NYPD.  Plus, there's the celebrity cameo's, including obviously Ron Jeremy, Lemmy Kilmister and Corey Feldman, as well as the late Hank The Angry Drunken Dwarf, of Howard Stern fame.  Plus the Sklar twins, who are comedians.

Once Upon A Time In The West - Sergio Leone's spaghetti western masterpiece. Sure it moves slow, but damn it is just shot so beautifully.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

I finally got to see VACANCY last night.  LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!  TeddyR


Are you mad?  Put the crack pipe down man.  Seriously, the only thing good about this film was Kate Beckinsale.  I can't believe I went and blew about $25 on this.  2 adult tickets, popcorn, 2 sodas...

To each their own I guess.

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure- Probably Keanu Reeves' best work, acting wise.  Notably, because I don't think it was so much his acting as it was his just showing up to the set and them putting a camera on him.  I don't think he's that far removed from the character in his real life.  But it's an enjoyable flick nonetheless, and him and Alex Winter have a good chemistry together.

An Evening With Kevin Smith- Not so much a movie as a 3 hour long standup performance/question and answer segment featuring writer/director Kevin Smith.  Very much reccomended for anyone.  Very funny, and somewhat insightful.  The stories about Superman Reborn and Prince alone make it enjoyable.

Ringu (1998) - I'm finally watching the DreamWorks Ringu set/collection I bought ages ago. The first one still packs a punch and is a modern day horror classic in my opinion.

Commandos (1968) - Co-written by Dario Argento but don't expect any witches, gore and maggots though ;) Entertaining WWII action-drama that is well shot and acted.

Full Eclipse (1993) - Long time no see, first time viewing on DVD. Too bad HBO didn't release the unrated version.

Skinwalkers (2006) - I snatched the German R2 which contains the unrated or R-Rated version. Skinwalkers wants to be so many things, like, The Covenant, Near Dark, The Lost Boys and Underworld. Had its moments but doesn't add anything new to the Werewolf genre.

The Night Of The Werewolf (1980) - I've seen this under the title The Craving back in the day of video rentals. Very atmospheric Paul Naschy horror worth checking out.

I just watched Picnic at Hanging Rock.  It's a very strange film, and it kind of frightened me at times.  I liked it.

"Superfly"
I couldn't feel sorry or support the mail character, Priest, in any way, but the film was entertaining.  You see, Priest runs a big ring of drug pushers and wants to make one last score, so he can retire.  He is quite the antihero.  Plus, he has huge lambchops, a constantly angry face, and snorts cocaine from the cross he wears around his neck.

The soundtrack was a lot of fun.  "I'm Your Pusher, Man!"  Now, that is a song.

Something else I noticed was that it was very New York City.  A lot of the city footage made me remember being in the city.

"Mr.  Bean's Holiday" (2007)

Because of my work schedule, it is hard for me to get tp the cineplex tp see a new film, but I finally did get to see this last night. I must admit with some trepidation, as I also saw "Mr. Bean" and did not enjoy it. So, somewhat to my surprise, I did enjoy this one.

Rowan Atkinson is more of a physical comedian, than a verbal comedian, so this one played up to his strengths, as it was more of a physical comedy than a verbal comedy. Unlike "Mr. Bean," which I remember as being more of a verbal comedy.

Also unlike "Mr. Bean," I did find this one funny.

I also found the ending of the film, on the beach at Cannes, to be surprisingly satisfactory and warm. I think that had alot to do with the music for the scene, as good use was made of the music throughout the film.

The Green Glove: story centering around the mysterious reappearance of a valuable religious artifact, a green jewel encrested gauntlet. As our hero WW2 veteran Mike Blake (Glenn Ford) pursues its trail which he had learned off during the war in France, mysterious individuals likely connected to a Nazi collaborator/art dealer named Paul Rona (George Macready) are in pursuit. Suddenly a dead man who was trailing Blake is discovered and he finds himself a murder suspect. Along the way he meets and falls in love with a French tour guide played by Geraldine Brooks who adds another twist to the story as she refuses to be left behind.

The mystery, murder and mayhem actually proves secondary in this movie and only occasionally proves as exciting as it sounds. Here, it's the romance that steals the show. Everytime Brooks is on the screen, she heats it up with her realistic flirting and terrific on-screen chemistry with Ford and Macready. If you're a bit of a hopeless romantic like me, you'll probably enjoy this as much as I did.  *** out of *****
