  • Fading Gigolo 2014

    ★★½ Watched 31 Jul, 2014

    A pseudo Woody Allen movie that Allen didn't even make, and has no real point. For the director and writer of the movie, John Turturro sure as shit looks checked out for the entire thing. There's nothing really here, just a series of encounters with Allen himself eliciting some small chuckles. It's not offensive or pleasing, it just simply exists.

  • Satan's Blood 1978

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Jul, 2014

    These are the type of coked-out fever dream euro-horror films that I love. The kind that takes multiple viewings to come to some sort of conclusion or just to soak up all that dreamy atmosphere. This movie has so many threads that are never explained, just unsettling things happening one after another, and I like it like that. I always say that if you were in a situation like a horror film, I fucking doubt some old guy's gonna pop…

  • Gremlins 2: The New Batch 1990

    ★★★★ Rewatched 19 Jul, 2014 2

    Decided to sit my son down and watch this with me as I check out how the blu-ray looks. I must have seen this dozens of times before and it still hasn't grown old, and my son seemed to like it as well. It's fun to see all the jokes that have only grown more relevant, like the reliance on technology and the digs at stuff like self-obsessed organic food neurotics. John Glover manages to take one of the most over-worn tropes around, money obsessed corporate CEO, and turns it into one of the most memorable and outright lovable nutballs in film.
