  1. Head Count: Netflix suggested it highly. I watch too many bad movies which has messed up Netflix's algorithm for me. Films: 106 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 4 Repeats: 5
  2. You know, if Mike hadn't already given a post of the day today...
  3. You Might Be The Killer: I was legitimately surprised by how much I liked this one. A parody of horror films in general, it plays with a lot of the tropes while never feeling like it's winking it's eye at us. I need to rewatch The Final Girls to figure out which one I enjoy more. The Love Witch: I have no clue how I feel about this movie. Films: 105 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 4 Repeats: 5
  4. Hobgoblins: One of my MST3K episodes because the movie is so meh and dumb and the riffs just keep working. Hellbound: Hellraiser 2: Simultaneously better and worse than the original. Honestly, it works as a counter to the original, going full in on the cosmic horror elements but it also fails because it leans so heavily into the Cenobite stuff. There are also a few too many flashbacks to the first film. It's a weird paradox. I would be interested in visiting the parallel universe where Julia became the villain of future films in the series instead of Pinhead. Let's Be Evil: It's a first person horror film that never really works at any point and the big twist is just pointless. So much of the film is pointless.

  5. Yu-Gi-Oh: Bonds Beyond Time: It's Yu-Gi-Oh. It's an excuse for all the protagonists to team-up in a duel that has like no rules whatsoever. It's okay, nothing special. Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween: It's a lot more focused than the original... up until it becomes an excuse to make a bunch of CGI monsters. It had some good moments though and is likely to be a good horror movie for the preteens. Hellraiser: Always good, always interesting, definitely a good way to kick-off Halloween Month!

  6. Most of the sources say Kingdom Come Superman.
  7. Ashley Scott who played Huntress in the 1 Season Birds of Prey series is reprising the role for Crisis.
  8. Drop Dead Gorgeous: Definitely an underrated film with a mostly female cast. More than a few young actresses before they became big. A Simple Favor: Was not expecting to love this one as much as I did. A smart, darkly humorous thriller and well acted all around. Most Likely To Murder: I like Adam Pally and Rachel Bloom. I was hoping for something better than this. It was an alright comedy but a little too mean-spirited at times. The Goonies: It's a childhood favorite. It mostly holds up.

  9. I have not been keeping up. I know there are movies that I'm forgetting. Manos: The Hands of Fate: One of my favorite MST3k Episodes. Needed something while folding laundry. Castle in the Sky: Is it Miyasaki;s best film? No but that doesn't change that it's a fun film and one of his most accessible. Jupiter Ascending: Is it good? No but there's enough going for it that I can appreciate. It's visually interesting, it's just when plot happens that it starts... yeah... Moulin Rouge: It's not bad but the massive moments of tonal shift can be disorienting. Scream 2 (x2): For The Show. Films: 94 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 3 Repeats: 5
  10. And now we got Erica Durance as Lois.
  11. Tom Welling is playing Clark Kent again for Crisis on Infinite Earths and it's honestly sounding like it's the Smallville Clark.
  12. Star Trek: First Contact: I kind of rewatched it to get psyched for the Picard show. It's a lot of fun and a decent action movie. A Very Brady Sequel: The Brady films from the 90s are still pretty terrific, fun for both fans of the show and not. Trancers: I wanted something on while playing Civ 5. It's a dumb 80s action movie with some sci-fi elements. It's okay. Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus: As a finale of the show, it works. As an extra long episode, it works. I feel like Zim works better in small doses but this was pretty good regardless. Films: 91 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 2 Repeats: 3
  13. Reefer Madness: The Musical version. Somehow, this is more poignant today. The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Because sometimes you need something absurd in this world. Rent: There aren't that many musicals streaming online so... well... I don't always make good choices. Films: 87 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 2 Repeats: 3
  14. Paris is Burning: I watched a lot of Drag Race in the last week and I felt the need to go back to the source. Interesting as fuck documentary about The New York Ballroom Scene in the 80s. Even without taking into account of how much it and the scene influenced gay culture, it's even more interesting how much it has slowly permeated into mainstream culture (the fact that shade is a common term now when it had to be explained in the feature).

  15. I am absolutely loving HoX and PoX. I'm a person who very rarely cares about art in comics unless when it's really bad. This is a case where I noticed it consistently. Silva is doing phenomenal work! Case in point: facial expressions. We have a character like Nimrod, a freaking robot, and he looks absolutely giddy in the art work at one point and it made me laugh, even if it was more than a little horrifying since he's a freaking Sentinel. Writing wise, yeah, it's a lot of set-up but then, this is Hickman. Hell, I fully expect this to still somehow tie into his Fantastic Four run just because Hickman is the only person other than Claremont that I feel would pull such an insane stunt.
  16. Ralph Breaks The Internet: I didn't hate it. I didn't love it either. The amount of product promotion kind of started to get to me. Batman: Hush: I try not to be that guy who says, "They changed it and now it sucks" but some of the changes they made to the adaptation were kind of, well, bad. It didn't help that Hush isn't exactly a great story to begin with. Us: Not quite as strong as Get Out but still pretty interesting. Lupita Nyong'o deserves a Best Actress nomination.

  17. Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods: I've seen most of the Dragon Ball movies. This might be the one that felt most like a movie and less like an extra long episode/extra short story arc of Dragon Ball. Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F: This... was good but was back to the kind of formula of feeling like an extra long episode/extra short story arc of Dragon Ball. The Phantom of the Opera: Honestly, I was drunk and wanted to watch a musical. It's okay but has some real problems. Films: 81 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 2 Repeats: 3
  18. Batman Vs TMNT: My friends hadn't seen it and I figured I should watch it sober. Half thinking next year, I should keep track of how many movies I watch drunk. Spider-Man: Far From Home: Like a lot of Marvel films since Guardians did so well, there's a little too much comedy in the film but there are so many parts that I love regardless of that. Jake Gyllenhaal is very charming for the entire film and is very great. Films: 78 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 2 Repeats: 3
  19. Netflix is picking up Sandman. Allan Heinberg is showrunning with Neil Gaiman.
  20. The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, V For Vendetta, The Dressmaker
  21. It's definitely an award bait film but considering the leads, I can't blame them at all. Ian McKellan still hasn't won an Oscar and deserves one and Helen Mirren could always use another one.
  22. Scream: I have a better TV and wanted to watch one of my favorite movies on it. Ocean's 8: Was having something of a girl's night and this was the movie of choice and I'm not going to turn that down. Films: 77 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 2 Repeats: 2
  23. Holy crap, didn't realize that was Bee from The Babysitter! I fucking want this movie even more!
