  2. Rocky IV: Showed this to Harry, generally my favorite Rocky film because it's so...what it is. The 90 minute runtime really made itself apparent this time around, with the severe padding during slow Rocky and Adrian scenes and let's see *counts on hand* FOUR montages and two musical numbers. Yeah there really isn't a lot of strict plot going on here. But the actors are so damn good. Apollo Creed get's wasted for the sake of the final fight, and he's really out of character blabbing vagaries about "THEM", but Carl Weathers is so damn likable you only sort of notice. Dolph Lundgren gives a perfe
  3. Last week
  4. Wonder Woman 84 - A solid meh. Plenty of little quibbles but overall I didn't think it was very entertaining for extended periods of time. And being 2.5 hrs didn't help. Batman: Soul of the Dragon - Standard DC animated movie. It's okay. No point in Batman being involved. Someone wanted to make a Richard Dragon movie but knew that wouldn't sell so Batman was shoehorned in.
  5. http://www.earth-2.net/images/front/dreadmedia_699.jpg This week on Dread Media, Desmond welcomes Steven Kostanski (of Astron-6 and The Void fame) to talk about the influences behind his brand new film PG: Psycho Goreman. And, as if discussion of one film where a young person wields the power of a bloodthirsty monster wasn't enough, Desmond and Duane review The Shed. PG: Psycho Goreman comes out January 22nd. Songs included: "Psychophobia" by Black Sabbath, "Scream Bloody Gore" by Death, "Shed" by Meshuggah, and "Night Crawling" by Miley Cyrus (feat. Billy Idol). [ 50:20 || 24.4 MB ] [ downloa
  6. Like most men, I worship at the shrine of Parker Posey and she is amazing in this film!
  7. Pretty Woman My Best Friend's Wedding Eat, Pray, Love
  8. Psycho Goreman: holy hell, this is fun s fuck. Interview with writer/director in Monday's episode of DM. The Void: co-written and co-directed by the same guy. One of there best horror films of the past decade. One of the best cosmic horror films of all-time. Blade Trinity: Not only did I forget Patton Oswalt and Natasha Lyonne were in the film, but I also forgot that the last half of the movie is shot at a decommissioned floating McDonalds I ate at when I was six. Weird. Also, the movie isn't as bad as everyone (including me in the past) says about it. Don't get me wrong, it mostly s
  9. Since I could not create a link in the previous post, here's the URL to "There are no police." https://tranquiltirades.fandom.com/wiki/There_Are_No_Police
  10. I finished the entire third season of Cobra Kai. General thoughts: There’s a level of violence that is expected in a show about karate fights, and then there’s the point where the cops show up and everyone goes to jail. This season went well beyond that. It's almost like there are no police! Now on to spoilers. This show has become stupid. Entertaining, but stupid. Don't get me wrong, I love the show. I highly recommend it. But Season 3 is nowhere near as good as the first two seasons.
  11. Earlier
  12. Granted there has been two “theme years” where he doesn’t qualify, but just realizing that it’s been too long for Jack Nicholson not to have an episode centered around him!
  13. The Witches of Eastwick: Funny enough Supernatural Comedy. Just with the four leads we had, I feel like it should have been epic but still pretty entertaining! Oh, and that John Williams score! Pinocchio: Definitely a good follow-up to Snow White. Some of the animation is really good (See Monstro), characters get personality, and the plot is only kind of a meandering trip. Films: 6
  14. This week on Dread Media, Duane and I watched Porno! Then, to keep that ball rolling, I do a Dread Media Top 5 of Other Misleading Titles in Genre Film. Sorry, maybe next time. Songs included: "Pornstar 80 (Stardust Mix)" by Mary Shelley Overdrive, "Violent Pornography" by System of a Down, "Forget My Name" by Dub Trio feat. Meshell Ndegeocello, and "Porn Piece or the Scars of Cold Kisses" by Ulver. [ 54:57 || 26.6 MB ]
  15. Die #2: I can't explain why, but I'm out. Not grabbing me. Gunning for Hits #1: Decent. Not worth following though. Heroes in Crisis #4: still digging this. Infinity Wars Infinity #1: waste of time. Man Without Fear #1, 2: Nawww...I'm good. Marvel Knights 20th #5: It's losing its shine a bit but there's only one more to go. Murder Falcon #4: still really fun. Outer Darkness #3: Yeah, I'm out. Taking its sweet time. Time that I don't have, Prodigy #2: yeah, this is not good. Shatterstar #4: you know, for a character I've never cared about, this is a
  16. Fight Club: I haven't watched it in ages, but the bus wanted to. Davin was paying lots of attention, and when they're trolling support groups he asked "is she even real?" about HB Carter's character. He was on to something for sure. Haha! Amazingly well-edited movie. Norton's great. Very dated movie. Features: 3 Shorts: 0 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 0
  17. Musangwe Fight Club: this is a bland BBC documentary about a two-week stint every year in a tribal area of South Africa where men from either side of a river come and fight each other in bare-knuckle boxing matches. I found it intriguing, but honestly, got a little sick to my stomach when I discovered 11-12 year old boys were doing it too. Weird watch. Like a Boss: The Tiffany Haddish/Rose Byrne movie. Salma Hayek was great, and I usually LOVE Haddish, but didn't enjoy this movie that much. Features: 2 Shorts: 0 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 0
  18. Cool. If she has the same accent and delivery, I'm in.
  19. Diane Morgan did similar schtick for Charlie Booker years beforehand, although her character there was known as Philomena Cunk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4vuUfnTEkg Anecdotally, I was listening to the Cunk audiobook (an encyclopedia that she defines poorly) on my way in to work today. It's a bit UK-centric, and it's 5 hours long so the same type of joke once every 20 seconds for 5 hours does wear thin, but the best observations are legitimately very funny.
  20. So Close (2002): A Cory Yuen directed film about a pair of Hitwomen assassins and the genius cop trying to take them down. This is the same director of the Hey and Actor! classic, "Yes, Madam". It's more serious than that, but the action is completely bonkers. I loved it. Shu Qi is a goddess. Lionheart: Van Damne classic which as it winded down made me remember I probably saw the last act of this on TV once. Perfectly fine. Standard early 90s action fare that's pretty by the numbers. Fight scenes aren't spectacular, but the different arenas were pretty cool, like a Squash room or an empty
  21. I saw When Harry met Sally a few days ago. I enjoyed it alright, but Harry's smarm in his younger days was an obstacle for me to get past for a long time into the movie. I also kinda wish the initial two points from the past lasted a little longer.
  22. I, Tonya: Margot Robbie is going to get her Oscar eventually. Just the way that she captures Tonya Harding in the film is wonderful! Mank: It's Oscar Bait but at least somewhat interesting, especially any part with Amanda Seyfried. Bridget Jones's Diary: It's a yearly tradition to watch this during January. Renee Zellweger is pretty good in it. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: Simple but beautiful. Also, to be commended for what it spawned. Films: 4
  23. Final count for 2020: I watched 300 films. This was helped along by the fact that I wasn't hanging out with friends on weekends and that I had the extra money for extra streaming services and the such. That said, I also watched like 70 something films in December alone. October helped it. I will also hopefully not hit 300 films next year but we'll see.
  24. T2 is a classic, I'd even say important film, while the Goodfellas is possibly the most obnoxious gangster movie in existence. Irritating at every turn.
  25. Bill & Ted Face the Music - Saw this at a drive-in in the summer. Still enjoyed it on rewatch. New Mutants - I wasn't looking forward to this after the first trailer. Seemed like it was a horror film. I don't like horror. I don't know what happened between that first trailer and the 17 years it took to release the film. Well, reshoots, because this is nowhere near horror. Instead, we get an incredibly boring movie. The cast tried, but there was nothing in the script.
  26. - Pretty Woman - My Best Friend's Wedding - Erin Brockovich I'd toss Steel Magnolias into the mix as well.
