A Sid & Marty Krofft film once the psychedelics wore off, and the paranoia set in. Bright colors defunct, drab and dark is what dimly projects through the prism. Trademark elder antagonist trying to invade the land. Pillage and plunder souls for slavery. Consistent arc on if the events taking place are mind-bending truths or manifested through grief.

Do dreams only morph into nightmares while comatose? Is the TALL MAN the suburbia appointed Grim Reaper? The answers only seem to lie within each individual. FEAR v. NO FEAR. The battle among everyone, at all times.

Basket Case 1982

Midnight movies are the best.....I grew up in the UK, in a pretty 'liberal' household - ie do whatever the fuck you like as mummy is drunk, on drugs and entertaining Mr dick! So i remember seeing this movie for the first time on a shitty TV station in 1998 at like 2am. I was 11 and fucking loved it. Since then, i've always been passionate about 'unmainstream' movies. However, this one stands out to me, along with Little Criminals (1995). Both were my reason for education and art. Their roughness is perfection!

"It's all in the Reflexes"

Another movie that I've had for ages and never bothered to actually watch it, and it's another Carpenter movie. Why did it take me this long? It doesn't take long before you're thrown into the actually story down in Chinatown and it never lets up. Great action, brilliant characters, funny moments and lines, plus great martial arts... It's got it all. Still amazes me how much of a great actor Kurt Russell is, love all his roles (that I've seen). Plus this is just another great movie from the always fantastic JOHN 'MOTHER FUCKING' CARPENTER!

From celluloid dimensions to full blown celluloid hell.

That's how you do a sequel. These two films have both kind of been crafted to exist on some hyper reality levels. Coscarelli is killing it.

I've mostly enjoyed this recent run of Disney live action remakes, and this was no different. While the songs that they used from the original disney movie weren't as good as in that movie, that's not to say they are bad at all, just that those songs are very hard to top. I thought just about everyone was good, even though i don't think any of them really tried to have a accent. The servants were probably my favorite part of the movie next to the music, they were great. Emma Watson is a pretty good belle, didn't enjoy her as much as i like belle in the 1991 version,but again that's hard to live up too. Also thought Luke Evans was a great gaston imo. dude was a straight asshole, but still made me laugh a few times. I was also glad that while it's very faithful to the original version, it's not a straight up scene for scene recreation of the movie, there's extra songs and a few extra scenes that add some background to belle and the beast.

As for what was not good about the movie. The Beast's look was 50/50 as far as sometimes he looked good enough that the cgi doesn't distract you, and then other times where he looks like a video game character. Also I didn't think he was angry enough at the start, when Beast in the OG disney version got mad the whole place would shake, this beast at best sounded irritated.

I'll give this movie a B, very enjoyable and i left with a smile on my face.

The Fate of the Furious (2017)
Studio: Universal Pictures
MPAA Rating: PG-13 For Prolonged Sequences of Violence and Destruction, Suggestive Content, and Language.


The 8th installment in this long-running franchise is the most over-the-top in the series yet. This particular series is an interesting position that for many franchises that have gone on this long, franchise fatigue is paramount and shark-jumping is inevitable. While many "purists" of the series will reject where the series has gone and what it's become, many have seemed to embrace this direction and yet, after 8 movies, still manages to reinvent itself and stay relevant.

Despite this being the first F&F movie post-Paul Walker's ultimately death, Family is still crucial to the heart of this series and his presence is felt throughout. Under director F. Gary Gray, the returning cast from The Rock and Jason Statham, who steal the show, to Vin Diesel to Michelle Rodriguez to Kurt Russell to newcomers Scott Eastwood, Helen Mirren, and main antagonist Charlize Theron, who gives a rousing performance as the amiable-yet-persistently devious Cipher, are all entrapped in a hyper-kinetic international plot with the most insane action the series has produced, which is really saying a lot.

To avoid spoilers and not talk about the many twists and turns, the basic plot of this movie is Cipher lures Dominic Toretto into the world of terrorism which causes him to go rogue and betray his family. What that is isnít explicitly said early on, you know itís incredibly serious that it makes Dom betray those who are closest to him.

As for how the rest of the movie plays out, itís like every action movie you can think of but not because itís ďformulaicĒ but because it conveys a variety of elements from several different kinds of action movies: itís a car-chase adventure that has been the foundation of the series from the beginning to a brawling-action movie to an international cyber-thriller all wrapped in a family drama so it has something thatíll appeal to everyone.

Another thing that isnít lost on these movies is its sense of humor and many of the movieís brightest points are the interactions between The Rockís Luke Hobbs and Jason Stathamís Ian Shaw, even Helen Mirren and Kurt Russell get some hysterical lines in.

Action is the draw of these movies and Fast 8 delivers delivers the most enthralling the series yet and takes the action from Cuba to New York to the icy heart of Russia in its massive 3rd act, this is as international as any of the Bond films and then some.

Of course, there are logistical holes and while it doesnít require the same suspension of disbelief that entailed Fast & Furious 6, it doesnít quite have the perfect balance that Furious 7 had and this franchise feels like itís starting to wain creatively. What else can they do? Go into space? Time-travel? Become actual superheroes and villains? But like itís been proven time and time again, just as this franchise seems to be wearing thin creatively, they surprise us and manage to top itself. As mentioned earlier, if youíre a ďpuristĒ of this series and its grounded roots, stay clear of this one. If youíve been following these movies for 16 years now and have accepted this seriesí transition from grounded racing movies to international action adventures, see it.

From the dynamic chemistry of the cast to the caring and serious commitment to the idea of ďFamilyĒ, Fate of the Furious is another strong entry in this franchise.


8.25/10

re: The Last Movie You Watched Thread



Araki's Phantom of Liberty? Perhaps Un Chien Andalou would make more sense - it was shown for one + especially w/dream imagery at a high among both, but I get the gist that affluent kids who can afford university, eating meals out every night, & go to concerts where money is no object (Smith's own mom was shown to be rather loaded w/the greenbacks in the Hollywood hills) plays a significant balance to the cult wanting to control the world. Intersections of life, in all of its weirdest forms, as a biting form of cynicism towards upper class excess & flat out nihilism. This is w/o pigeon-holing the imaginative Araki as going "full Bunuel" w/angsty, over-sexed charm. More of a similar & somehow different vein where inspirations were more worn on his sleeve than others. Kaboom is so "Araki", that I'll over-use his surname one more time as a verb to drive the theory home. The Doom Generation gone and went BOOM at the turn of the digital decade. Here lies its colorful aftermath.

It's a fuxin trip. None of it has to matter if you experience it. There's the message.
