  • Phantom of the Mall: Eric's Revenge 1989

    ★★ Watched 15 Jul, 2014

    Yeah, it was stupid and, yeah, it was occasionally funny, but for me the highlight was some unexpected stunt-work. Maybe I am becoming too jaded when it comes to stuff like this. I never heard that Vandals song before though.

  • Edge of Tomorrow 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 13 Jul, 2014

    This was better than I thought it was going to be and certainly a hell of a lot more fun. Loved seeing Bill Paxton on the big screen again. The premise played less like "Groundhogs Day," and more like a video game. Like I said, it was fun and I have only minor complaints about the ending, and I do fear that the more I think about it, the less sense it makes (although that's never stopped me from enjoying a movie). Tom Cruise is still pretty irrelevant though.

  • The Unholy Rollers 1972

    ★★★½ Rewatched 16 Oct, 2013 1

    The Claudia Jennings show! It's almost as if she is acting in a different movie, a better movie. This movie though has a lot to offer, really lively cinematography, an excess of 70's flair, and a lot of charm. For all the goofy voice-over work and fun montages set to 50's Rock N' Roll, there are at least 3 dramatic scenes that really illustrate Jennings' chops. All in all, this is a really charming movie.

  • The Gruesome Twosome 1967

    ★★ Watched 11 Feb, 2014

    A lot of silly details and a short running time went a long way to aiding my enjoyment of this HGL entry, but man, that pacing in the 3rd act almost sent me to snooze-ville. That being said, when the girls in their dorm nighties all start dancing with KFC legs in their hands, I was pretty much in giggle-heaven.
