In July, 366 Weird Movies declares independence from the ordinary!

L'IMMORTELLE (1963): Certified Weird! "Everything commonly accepted to be true in real life is cast in suspicion here; the woman shows our professor all the tourist-trap wonders of Istanbul, then tells him that theyíre all fakes, she takes him to a cemetery and tells him that nobody is really buried there, she writes down her address, then immediately she says itís not even her real address (it is later revealed that the piece of paper had nothing written on it to begin with, to further muddy the waters). Aspersions are cast on the most fundamental story elements, and by the end, the audience is left shell-shocked and nearly as confused as our protagonist."-EY

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST (2014): "Once past the confusing opening, X-Men: Days Of Future Past shifts gear into ambitious, melodramatic fun, and has a few surprises up its sleeve, at least to those of us who forgot our Marvel concordance."-AE

JODOROWSKY'S DUNE (2013): "Jodorowskyís Dune is without a doubt the most spectacular movie that never got made."-TM

"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

INTERVIEW: JAMES WARD BYRKIT, DIRECTOR OF "COHERENCE"

COHERENCE (2013): " Itís exciting both as a chilling peek into the dark shadows of alternate realities, and as an example of how resourceful filmmakers can produce thrilling effects using nothing more expensive than their own brains."

SNOWPIERCER (2014): "Entertainment-driven popcorn viewing that makes up the mainstay of the Hollywood summer slate can be forgiven for saying things badly, given that it has so little to say; but Snowpiercer has a brilliant central plot device, yet Bong and his co-writer Kelly Masterton's increasingly obscure and irrational narrative comes across as a desperate distraction to take the viewers' minds off the fact that the writer and director have no clue of where their film needs to go."-JH
 
TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION (2014): "Doubtless, the besotted businessmen funding this clanging, metallic peepshow fancy their product as imaginative enough to rake in plenty of dyed green paper from its zombified audience."-AE

RADIO FREE ALBEMUTH (2010): "A tale of pink, pro-rock ní roll aliens beaming hallucinatory political advice to subversives from a satellite orbiting earth, Radio Free Albemuth is totally baffling if you donít know the backstory behind it. It may be even stranger if you do."

ENEMY (2013): Certified weird! " As tightly controlled as a dictatorship and as enigmatic as a tarantula on a gold serving platter, the inscrutable Enemy evokes a panicky existential dread in the tradition of David Lynch. The final scene will provoke debate for as long as people watch weird movies."

DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES (2014): "Aided by motion capture, Serkisí powerhouse performance as Caesar is even more impressive this time around and is the most, if not the only, successful collaboration between actor and CGI to date. "-AE

SUGAR HILL (1974): Part of what distinguishes Sugar Hill is that it isnít based on a piece of 19th century European literature, but is instead a more distinctly black American narrative which synthesizes elements of Voodoo iconography, fairy tales, and classic b-horror film tropes. Itís occasionally clumsy and highly stylized script offers all of the cliches that youíd hope for in a blaxploitation film."-BE

MIDNIGHT SKATER (2002): "It is a crime that this glorified home movie somehow got onto Netflix, and might accidentally take up a slot people could use to rent a real film."

    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.
