Top Gun - That's right I'd never seen it. It's like all the popular kids got together and told an awesome story about how awesome they are and show that they have feelings too.  Alpha males galore. Still it's fun and compelling and very 80's deserves a 5/5

The Devil's Nightmare (1971) - some people spend the night at a castle and as luck would have it, there's a seductive succubus who starts killing them off. One of those Eurohorror things, best watched when you're in the mood for something slow and (slightly) atmospheric. Being mildly intoxicated certainly doesn't hurt either. Characters were one dimensional but I did get a kick out of the old coot who was always insulting everybody. Wardrobe budget must have been miniscule as half the time the women were running around in nothing at all. Two of them had two spent a lot of time snuggled up with each other just to stay warm, poor things Bluesad 3/5.

   DARK SHADOWS (2012)

     I rented this over the weekend, certain I'd be entertained....
Boy, was I wrong.



      I was thoroughly floored by this picture-everyone involved was a real hoot, said waycoolness led by Johnny Depp, who walks off with the picture firmly ensconced in his back pocket, followed closely by Helena Bonham Carter, and the rest of the cast.

     As usual, I'll let you discover the details for yourself....just see it.

I really liked Devil's Nightmare. That first slew or Gothic whatever that company was movies had some crazy stuff. Sinful Nuns of Saint Valentine was just insane.


Fulci- You can't have a 10/5 It was good though

Stitches (2012)

A nasty guy who dresses up as a Clown named Stitches to entertain kids at parties accidentally falls into a knife at a kids party. Six years later the same kids are celebrating a birthday party and Stitches returns from the grave for revenge ...

Irish supernatural slasher-comedy with over-the-top gore and imaginative kills. The actor playing Stitches, a real life comedian (Ross Noble), does a good job and has his share of creepy moments. The victims don't come off very sympathetic which doesn't really matter because one should be rooting for Stitches anyway. He is not a new Freddy Krueger but with a little work and a decent sequel he could become a new icon of some sorts. 4/5

Kill Baby, Kill (1966) - a doctor is summoned to a small village where the local police inspector needs him to perform an autopsy. Over the course of the movie we find that a 7 year old girl was killed at some time in the past, and now she's back for revenge. This bored the living crap out of me. I don't find a 7 year old girl to be the lest bit scary, and seeing people act as if she's the most terrifying thing in the wold is just dumb. Listening to her laugh is just cliched and annoying. The characters were completely unsympathetic and undeveloped, but the director was far more concerned with putting colored lights on everything. He's especially in love with a spiral staircase - after we watch someone walk down it, we then get a flashback...of the staircase. He zooms in and out and in and out on it. Look, it's round and it's got a hole in the middle! Later on we get another huge scene of the staircase, this time with blue, purple, orange and yellow lights on it. He spins the camera around - look, it's a spiral and It's spinning! I couldn't figure out why this doctor didn't just leave the village, as no one in it wants or even deserves his help. Not that he has any help to offer anyways. 2/5.

HIGHLANDER II (RENEGADE VERSION) (1991): First off: I've never seen the first HIGHLANDER, or the original cut of HIGHLANDER II (THE QUICKENING). So, I am coming into this one with a clean slate.

Opposed by a ruthless corporation, an Immortal investigates whether it's time to remove the ozone shield he helped wrap around the Earth, all while he's being hunted by another Immortal (either an alien or a visitor from the past, depending on which version you see). Understandably, this nonsensical, incompetent sci-fi action comedy that changed all the rules and brought back Sean Connery from the dead was an insult to fans of the first HIGHLANDER movie. If, however, you come to this one with no attachments to the Highlander mythos, it's an engaging wreck: you watch director Russell Mulcahy make one bad decision after another, fumbling action sequences, adding embarrassing comedy relief, and including a bizarrely bloody train hijacking where riders are brutally slaughtered by improbable G-forces. Tough to rate: it was bad but entertaining. 3.5/5?

Flesh Wounds (2011) - low budget Predator ripoff, just replace Arnold Schwarzenegger with Kevin Sorbo, the elite military unit with a bunch of infantile douchebags, and the predator with some bodybuilder dude with a Borg eye implant. I'm not exaggerating in the slightest when I say that I think they hired some middle school kid who saw the original Predator to act as military adviser on this thing. It's not so stupid it's funny, it's so stupid I'd like to meet the director just to see what kind of person would put his name on something like this.

Didn't quite finish it last night, I'm saving that treat for tonight.   TeddyR

THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH (1976): An alien (David Bowie) comes to earth incognito with plans to earn billions of dollars, build a spaceship and export water to his barren home planet, but finds himself unprepared to deal with human temptations and corporate politics. This melancholy story is more than a little muddled, but it has flashes of satire and moments of style. 3.5/5.

RUNNING SCARED (1986)
Small | Large


Two Chicago vice cops (the improbably cast Billy Crystal & Gregory Hines) go up against a would-be drug lord (pre-NYPD Jimmy Smits).  Wisecracks & gunfire, repeat.  Very silly but surprisingly enjoyable.

"2001: A Space Odyssey" (1968)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ok32VyEQYYc

Stanley Kubrick's classic sci-fi headf*ck takes the viewer on a "trip" (in every sense of the word) all the way from the Dawn of Man to the next step of human evolution, guided by a mysterious alien black stone monolith. Or....something like that. Seriously, "2001" is still an impressive feast for the eyes (the visual effects still beat the pants off of a lotta movies being made today) but the "story" is a pretentious muddle. Just enjoy the visuals and don't bother trying to follow it.



I'm actually one of the few folks that didn't really didn't care for this picture. Plus Hal's voice haunted me as a child.

     NIGHT FEEDERS (2006)



     I liked this film for a number of reasons, not the least of which being it was actually shot on film, not that amateur-looking video. Also, it was just fun. Some of the CGI work left something to be desired, but I wasn't expecting ILM, an'hoo.

     This was in the FRIGHT FEST assortment from Mill Creek, to wit-



and is certainly better than some of the other product in the set. (JACK FROST 2....please.)

     Fun ending.

Epoch (2001) - a giant rock formation suddenly appears, a half mile tall and seemingly defying the law of gravity. A team of scientists and military guys is sent to investigate. Sort of a Sci-Fi Original type thing as far as the overall quality of it, but I gotta give 'em credit for a very original plot. Characters weren't bad, it certainly moved along at a good pace, and the special effects, though low budget, were creative. 3.5/5

Finished up that Flesh Wounds movie too.  Ending was just as dumb as the rest of it. 2.5/5.

I think we started watching 6 different movies on Netflix last night but my wife vetoed the first 5  TeddyR
