  • Grad Night

    Grad Night 1980

    ½ Watched 23 Jun, 2016

    One of the all time worst. I really can't think of another comedy that fails as hard as this. The only laughs are when somebody falls down or gets hit on the head. It's as if the film is clinically depressed, lacking any emotion, happiness or a sense of humor. That said, it's incredibly similar in narrative structure to DAZED AND CONFUSED. There's a lot of complete garbage in this genre, but this thing is in a class by itself.

    Recommendation for Mercy 1975

    ★★★ Watched 26 Jun, 2016

    Unsettling and well-made docudrama based on a Canadian child murder case from 1959. A stellar cast of kids play out the details in a more present day setting (at the time). Worth all the hoops you'll jump through tracking it down and pairs perfectly with EXECUTION/STARK RAVING MAD as a teen killer twofer.

The kid wants none of it. I wouldn’t either, because Stallone is fucking insane. How else would you characterize a guy who’d drive his 18-wheeler through a rich guy’s iron gate, over his beautiful fountain and straight through the front door,…

    The Cabin in the Woods 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 21 Apr, 2012

    Digital. Alamo Drafthouse Village. Starts out slow but soon loses its mind. One of the best films of the past 20 years in any genre.
