  1. I was actually playing Lufia 2. Not really in the mood for a Platformer right now while a SNES JRPG was striking my fancy. Mandy: Weird and trippy as all fuck. I'm not sure how I feel. Heathers: Was trying to organize a Movie Night for my D&D group over Discord but no one could make it so I just decided to pick a film and start watching it. One of my favorites and definitely something that I can always come back to. The Producers: The musical version. Parts of the film are way too stagy but I still enjoyed it all. Films: 40 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 6
  2. Duck Tales The Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp: Wanted something in the background while I played a video game. I remember rewatching the VHS of it like a million times. It's okay. Animation is slightly above the quality level of the tv show. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie: Everyone's non-major character's Australian accent leaks through on a regular basis. It's okay, nothing special. Jack The Giant Killer: Watched with the Rifftrax. I'm realizing how much MST3k and Rifftrax I'm gonna be watching in the next few weeks. The movie itself has some alright stop-motion animation, some weird acting choices. Films: 37 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 6
  3. Racket Girls: It's a 50s movie about mobsters and women wrestlers but the wrestling parts are all padding and the plot is less than interesting. Red Zone Cuba: Vanity project that still leads to some good MST3k riffs. The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension: While not as good as I was being led to believe it would be, still pretty entertaining and something I would watch again. Films: 35 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 5
  4. I'm currently social distancing so let's see how much I end up watching in the next couple of weeks. My Hero Academia: Two Heroes: It feels like a lot of anime films that come out at the same time as the series is coming out in that it's largely inconsequential and any continuity that it introduces is likely to have no impact on the main series. As is, it was fun with some good fight sequences. The Alien Factor: I haven't watched any Cinematic Titanic before (the other Riffing group made up of MST3k Alums) and it was on the MST3k Twitch Channel. It's a wildly bad film that was riffed well. I might check out some more. Films: 34 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 3
  5. Especially since some of the studios are already sending recent/same-day releases to streaming. Mulan, I can see why Disney is holding off on that one. New Mutants and Antlers, films it inherited from the merger, those are kinda odd. Let's see where we are in a couple of weeks.
  6. Plus, for years, Magnetic Fields could do basically anything in the Marvel Universe. You name it, it does it.
  7. Iron Man 2: I feel like a lot of what made the original interesting and unique is gone now that they've realized that they not only have a success but that they have a franchise. Parts are good but this feels more like the beginning of the Marvel Cookiecutter concept than Iron Man 1. Girl in Gold Boots: So much of the SciFi era of MST3k is less of the goofy crime films that made up so much of the early years. So, it's nice that for the last year, they were allowed to do them again! Merlin's Shop of Mystic Wonders: Also from the last season of MST3k. One of my favorite experiments just because the film is so screwed up. Prince of Darkness: This is that rare film that has been on my radar since High School that I have somehow just never gotten around to seeing. It's such a moody film, weird, and just enough of a mind-screw. Definitely worth the wait. The Addams Family: While not as good as the sequel, it works for the most part. Films: 33 Mst3k/Rifftrax Assisted: 2
  8. It's some good reasoning honestly: Most people are anxious about Coronavirus and only thing coming out on the new weekend that would fall into a similar demographic is a new Disney Animated film.
  9. Th Brady Bunch Movie: It's weird how the attempt to make the film feel contemporary ages the film more than the Stuck-In-The-70s Bradys. The First Wives Club: It's amazing how many talented actresses they got for this film and I can't help but love for all of them! Rent Live: I was pretty fucking drunk and sleep deprived by the end so I think I bawled to Seasons of Love three times. Films: 30
  10. I am really looking forward to this. It looks interesting and it's directed by a black woman, Nia DaCosta, who has done some interesting stuff. Plus, I really love the original.
  11. He headed up Home Entertainment starting in 1993. He was also the one who came up with the Disney Vault idea.
  12. Bob Iger has stepped down as CEO of Disney. His replacement is Bob Chapek who was the head of Disney Parks. Chapek also spearheaded all those cheap, Direct-To-Video sequels back in the 90s and is also behind some of more controversial things as the Parks in the last few years such as pretending that the Guardians ride is anything more than The Hollywood Tower of Terror with a new paint job. So... if you're expecting Disney to put out anything new or novel in the next few years, you might not want to hold your breath waiting.
  13. I was completely unsure of it going in but it has been utterly hilarious and so much fun while saying something all the same. I'm really looking forward to Season 2. Also, I fucking love Killer Shark.
  14. It's definitely... something. I've never been a fan of Didio (His comment that "Countdown will be 52 done right" always reeked of stupidity) but the guy was passionate. That all said, every report of the work ethic at DC, especially in the last few years, says that this needed to happen.
  15. The Thing About Harry: It's a Freeform Made For TV movie except it's a gay relationship. Otherwise, it's mostly average. It also suffers from the problem that many of these have: It has a set run time so when it has a logical end-point, it just keeps going. Bridget Jones's Diary: Renee Zellwegger is what makes the film. If the lead hadn't been as strong, it would have failed big time. Films: 27
  16. My Bloody Valentine 3D: I watched it in 2D but I could tell how laughable the 3D had to be. As is, it's an okay film but so laughable for the most part, especially that twist at the end. The Great Muppet Caper: Still my favorite Muppet Movie! Films: 25
  17. I really like it. Maybe it's all the Mass Effect I've been playing speaking but it sounds suitably epic and like a Bond theme. Also, it has the added benefit of not inducing a coma like Spectre's theme did.
  18. Birds of Prey: I enjoyed it. It felt disjointed every now and then but I felt it was a decently entertaining film. Also, the only thing I've thought about since watching that movie was having a Fried Egg Sandwich! Roller Blade: It's a schlocky 80s Mad Max rip-off that's also about Roller Skate Nuns with Switchblades. Return to Oz: It's nightmare fuel but the set design is beautiful and Faruza Balk definitely does an admirable job! The Stepford Wives: The remake. Still not the worst film but far from the best. Tammy and the T-Rex: As gloriously insane as I remember and, with the gore cut, somehow even more so! Repo: The Genetic Opera: Because it came up in causal conversation and it was the end of the night and no one wanted to watch Space Mutiny. Films: 23
  19. Oh ditto. Don't get me wrong, Raimi has done some good Superhero stuff but the guy's horror and use of practical effects is top-notch and I hope he can get some of that through.
  20. There's Something About Mary, Charlie's Angels, Bad Teacher
  21. Voting for Brosnan because it increases the chances of Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again.
  22. Sam Raimi is in talks to direct the sequel.
  23. I mean, good on them to at least vaguely seem like they're trying something new.
  24. Ehh, to each their own. Ready or Not: There are times that the humor gets a bit in the way but otherwise, a fairly decent and gruesome horror comedy. Between this and The Babysitter, Samara Weaving is becoming one of my favorite Scream Queens! Films: 17
  25. Bees Make Honey: A very strange retro-throwback tribute to 30s comedy mysteries. It's not a great film but there's definitely some interesting energy there. The Lion King: The Photorealistic version. It's pretty pointless since the story barely changes. I swear, these Disney Remakes are just becoming lazier. Mass Effect: Paragon Lost: I've been replaying the Mass Effect series and I've never watched the anime film they put out leading up to 3. It's not good. Groundhog Day: The fact that Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell didn't get Oscar Nominations, let alone wins, for this film is beyond perplexing but whatever. Films: 16
