Dangerous Liaisons

Love this film.  Glenn Close and John Malkovich just chew up the scenery in this.  Hadn't seen it in ages, and noticed it was about to expire from Netflix Streaming so I watched it last night.  Still fantastic.

Dolly Dearest - A 1992 movie about killer dolls. It's not bad for a direct to video movie (although it did apparently get a limited release to theaters in the midwest). The obvious comparison is to Child's Play, which is better, and has a far more interesting mythology and storyline. This goes for more a traditional slasher type, and unearthed demon thing for it's origin. It does deliver on the creeps sometimes, although it goes overboard on the fake jump scares. I also give them credit for having the dolls look like typical dolls when they aren't moving, and creepy as HELL later on when they do. Child's Play suffered from the Good Guy dolls looking vaguely wierd and unapealing at first, and only somewhat menacing at the end. I could definitely see the evil dolls here giving kids (and even not so little kids) nightmares.
  It has Rip Torn as an archeologist, who is given basically nothing to do. And the brother of the main girl looks distractingly like a very young Kevin Bacon.
  I would recommend it if you are looking for a better than average killer doll movie that isn't Child's Play. At least it is FAR better than the Charles Band shit we get for most of the rest of that rather limited sub-genre.

I think you spelled "Charles Band GREATNESS" incorrectly............

Speaking of Charles Band! (who is both awesome and awful)

Shrunken Heads - A comedy horror film from the 90s where a bunch of school kids stand up to the local mob boss only to be murdered.  The local newsagent is - conveniently enough - a voodoo witch doctor, and brings the kids back as floating heads in order to take their revenge.  An Elfman affair, this one, directed by Richard Elfman, scored by Danny, and co-starring Bodhi.  It's passable, but neither funny or scary enough to compete with the better efforts out there. 

Newlydeads - Some guy kills a transvestite only for his/her vengeful spirit to come back and start killing everyone on the hotel grounds he owns.  It's a terrible mess with hardly any redeeming features, but an early part for Doug Jones as one of the unfortunate guests.

Sugar Boxx - A slightly modern update of the"Women in Prison" films that sprouted out of Corman's AIP in the 1970s.  A reporter goes undercover at a women's prison to get the scoop on some rumours about the women being mistreated, only to discover that the place is actually a work camp for the ugly, and brothel for the attractive.  It's shit, and not in the grungy, barely-classed-as-a-movie-type shit that Corman used to put out. 

Caged Fear - David Keith stars in this mid-90s prison film about a guy who tries to get his girlfriend out of prison by taking the identity of the newly appointed warden.  It's an interesting premise, but it descends pretty rapidly into total nonsense, and never approaches the promise of its central conceit.

The Bridge. It's a depressing documentary about people committing suicide from jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge. Worth seeing though.

Alien Prey

It was on one of my 50 movies for $10 sci fi collection.  Unrated.  It gets off to a promising start.  Bad acting and writing.  And a hilarious looking pig-monster-alien, who looking for a good source of protein for his home planet,  takes an early victim's body.  While trying to get used to the body runs across two lesbians living out in the woods.  Thne takes the name Anders Anderson, Ha! 

Then the quite graphic lesbian love scene kicks in.  And it doesn't seem faked at all, I think these women were really into it.  I was shocked.  Imagine if some young man bought this not knowing...I can imagine his thrill.

And the lesbians dress the alien up as a woman.  And some other stuff happens.

I highly recommend it if you like this kinda stuff.  Which I do very much.

Just got back from Men in Black III. I was very pleasantly surprised. It might be my favorite of the three. It has the great comedy and awesome alien design that the other two had, but this one actually has something to say. It was more than mindless fun action. There were great messages about things like destiny and optimism vs. cynacism. It had a sweet ending too.

I've been hearing good things about this one (which I am more than a little surprised about, to be honest). Better than the first is a tall order, as that's a straight up fantastic sci fi/comedy, but yeah, I've become much more interested in it over the past few days. I'll do a morning show tomorrow, see how it all shapes up.

Silent Running.

this was a pretty good 70s sci-fi movie.  Has Joel ever said if he saw this movie?  Because the way Bruce Dern plays the scenes and interacts with the two robots kind of reminds me of early MST3K.  I think if his character had not been killed off someone could have made a good half hour dramady based on this movie.  Each week you have the lone man and his robots having to deal with some problem and trying to keep from dying of bordom,I think it would work.

Yes. Joel has said that Silent Running was a major influence on the MST3K origins. That and an Elton John album that had the silhuettes of theater seats on the bottom of one part of it.

I watched Adaptation today, which is a brilliant, different, and entertaining film.

I'm watching The Deer Hunter right now. It's drawn out at some parts (especially in the beginning) but it's excellent.

I tried to watch "Dinocroc vs Supergator" right now on SyFy.  Yeah, couldn't last 15 minutes.  It's hard to watch a Roger Corman movie without a certain shadowrama at the bottom of the screen.   ;)  And the CGI is probably the shittiest I've ever seen.  Everyone one here on this board could do a better job than what I just witnessed.   

No wonder I haven't bothered with that channel since they canceled MST3K.

Watched Jackboots on Whitehall a few days ago on Netflix streaming.  I went in knowing nothing about the movie except the synopsis that was written on Netflix, so the fact that it was puppets was a surprise.

I remember thinking at first that it was a shame it wasn't live action. Then I thought, "Wait, how the fuck could this be done in live action? That wouldn't work at all."  Then I just sort of enjoyed it.  It was really bizarre, and not all of it worked, but goddamn was Richard Grant's "Vicar" character hilarious, and the Braveheart stuff was good.  It was also pretty fun seeing Hitler vamping in QEI's regalia in Buckingham.  Pretty good, not awesome, but worth a watch if you like outlandish surreal humor. And puppets.
I had never heard of that, I must watch this.
