This week, we're thankful for sleaze, mathletes who protect us from hackers, and sperm.

MONTY PYTHON'S THE MEANING OF LIFE (1983): "The sketches fans talk about most are the 'Every Sperm Is Sacred' musical number (with its chorus line of high-kicking nuns) and the unforgettably vile (and funny) 'Mr. Creosote' sequence, about a projectile-vomiting glutton who gorges himself at a posh restaurant until he explodes."

THE ACID HOUSE (1998): "The Acid House is funny, grim, unsettling, revolting, and… well, a lot of fun if you like that sort of thing!"-PD

SUMMER WARS (2009): "Because Oz was designed by the Japanese, it looks like a constellation of spinning cloud/animal hybrids orbited by blue and pink planetary blobs, with virtual whales floating through the cyberether spouting fireworks from their blowholes."

"The best parts are watching Sly go through the full range of emotions: deadpan, deadpan with raised eyebrow, deadpan with quivering lip. There's also a great sequence where Sly drives his VW Beetle down the interstate for about 20 minutes, staring dramatically through the windshield.."-Joe Bob on A MAN CALLED RAMBO

This week, we're thankful for alcoholic carnies, Jewish cats, haunted houses, and director/animator GB Hajim gracing us with a top 10 Weird Movies list.

G.B. HAJIM'S TOP 10 WEIRD MOVIES: "To me, the hallmark of a weird movie is a moment so unique that it can only be brilliant in the context of the certain refined bizarreness a filmmaker has created. Shu Lea Cheangʻs cyberpunk porno I.K.U. (which literally means 'cum' in Japanese) has such a great moment, when two of the leads are singing karaoke into rotating throbbing dildos."-GBH

NIGHTMARE ALLEY (1947): " Power reminds the viewer of the horror that was once associated with the term “geek” in what turns out to be, perhaps, his finest performance."-AE

LIVIDE (2011): "From the mummy-like, comatose Mademoiselle Jessel, her finger nails grown long as talons and her face obfuscated by a grotesque oxygen mask, to the dreary, decaying mansion in which she is entombed alive, Livide is a morbid cavalcade of ghastly settings, objects and characters."-PD

THE RABBI'S CAT (2011): "In the course of the tale, the cat gains the power of speech, then loses it after uttering a forbidden name of God (although for unknown reasons he can still speak to other animals and to Russians); just as arbitrarily, he starts talking again after being treated for a scorpion sting. A cousin with a pet lion, a Russian Jew smuggled in a crate of books, a bloody duel between an alcoholic Tsarist and a scimitar-wielding Bedouin, and the cat’s semi-erotic obsession with his master’s curvy daughter also jostle for our attention."

This week, we're thankful for Sutter Cane bestsellers, juvenile delinquents from outer space, Ed's ear for dialogue, and a rare sharknado-free day in L.A.

PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE (1959): "For all the contemporary, independent genre filmmakers who use Wood as a studio mantle piece, a vital Woodian element eludes them: for all his weirdness, Wood’s films are a joyful embrace of an outsider life. By contrast, the 21st century army of torture porn trash peddlers are as clueless as the zombie crutches they lean on."

SHARKNADO (2013): "... you must resist testing your wits by looking for the plot holes in Sharknado. That’s just what the filmmakers want you to do—to congratulate yourself for being smarter than the people who made this movie, while they in the meantime lounge on the Santa Monica beach, drinking fruity beverages with umbrellas and slices of pineapple in them and texting their financial advisers to see what investments they should buy with the money people like you paid for the DVD."

IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS (1994): "Although the name of the novelist—Sutter Cane—is a blatant sound-alike for Stephen King, the style of horror here (both in this story and in Cane’s fictional universes) is more reminiscent of H.P. Lovecraft, with its emphasis on insanity brought about by forbidden knowledge and on unseen, indescribable monsters from other worlds who seek to invade ours."

THE GHASTLY LOVE OF JOHNNY X (2012): "With closets housing flashbacks, zombie rock concerts, and alien bubble-heads popping out of UFOs, Ghastly Love does have a weirdness beyond its genre-mashing premise." Includes a response from the director after reading the review.

We're also thankful for psychotic twenty-somethings, the evil dead, phallic vampires, drunk millionaires.

NOSFERATU (1922): Certified weird! "The phallic nosferatu, who seeks only to fulfill his lustful desires, is associated with disease (whether the plague or syphilis), homosexuality (he feeds on Hutter), adultery (he covets Hutter’s wife), rape, necrophilia (he is after all a corpse), and general sexual impurity."

EVIL DEAD (2013): "...a perfect example of how to take a unique product and de-weirdify it for mass consumption."

ALYCE KILLS (2011): "Alyce Kills is as much an entry-level clerical answer to the Fortune 500′s American Psycho (2000) as it is a morbid odyssey of self discov—uh, make that self-destruction"-PD

CITY LIGHTS (1931): "Despite Chaplin’s (increasing) tendency towards schmaltz, he still does it in a far less dated way than other films of the period. Indeed, his silent features have enough identifiable human drama and strengths to outweigh their shmaltzy weakness in far better than virtually any of the saccharine Hollywood productions of the forties and fifties."-AE

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
