    Ricochet 1991

    ★★★★ Watched 06 Nov, 2015

    Any movie where John Lithgow beats up Jesse "The Body" Ventura after telling him "Fuck yourself, cream-cake!" is good enough in my book.

    Also, they have a prison sword fight. A Prison. Sword. Fight.

    It's that kind of movie. I loved it.

    Side note: The studio must've really wanted to play up Denzel's sex appeal. If you play a drinking game of how many times he's nearly naked in this film--including when he strips nearly naked in the middle of a gun standoff--you'll probably get alcohol poisoning.

    I'm willing to defend this movie as the greatest Halloween-themed movie ever until the end of time.

    Or at least it's the greatest horror anthology movie ever.

    Bros, this has the most wild car explosion I've ever seen in movie history. As if getting sandwiched between a cop car and a van wasn't bad enough. Shit gets blown up. Poor guy.

    Fuck this movie.

    Fuck that pointless first 20 minutes.

    Fuck that white horse.

    Fuck the cringe worthy dialogue.

    Fuck Rob Zombie for thinking women/teens/human beings really talk like this.

    Fuck Rob Zombie for turning Michael Myers' story into some weird LSD pipe dream that only he understands.

    Fuck the studio for forcing Rob Zombie into making this movie because they couldn't leave well enough alone.

    Fuck every character who was remotely likable/bearable in the last movie who decided to turn…

    I don't know which flick is the best in the Evil Dead Trilogy--watching them all back to back, they're all so fucking fantastic, it's hard to choose one superior one--but this one definitely has the best quotes out of all three films.

    "Yo she-bitch...let's go."

    "You ain't leading but two things: Jack and shit. And shit left town."

    "Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?!"

    "That's just what we call pillow talk, baby."

    "Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the…

    I am so ready to watch Ash vs The Evil Dead tonight.

    Like, you don't understand. I've been missing Bruce Campbell since Burn Notice and missing Sam Raimi since the Spidey flicks. I've always had a soft spot for those hometown heroes of mine and I think The Evil Dead Trilogy really is the greatest trilogy ever. And now we've got a tv show follow up? You think I'm not about to watch the Pilot episode alone about a hundred…

    All Hallows' Eve 2013

    ★★½ Watched 30 Oct, 2015

    Ya'll might as well start calling me Judi Dench cause I was watching this the whole time just thinking "Send in the clown!"
    I really wanted more of that fucking clown. Bastard gave me the heebie jeebies.

    Side note: This film would've been perfect if it was just those last 25 minutes. Turns out there is a version of this of just those 25 minutes. You should probably watch that instead. You're not missing much.

  • The Importance of Being Earnest

    The Importance of Being Earnest 1986

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Oct, 2015

    The shade is so real in this play.

    The facial expressions alone are glorious. Some of these characters just look at each other like they're ready to snatch each other's wigs. It's hysterical.

    Side note: Paul McGann is wonderful. Watching him stuff his face with muffins is a highlight.

    It's sad how much I haven't had any time to watch any scary/Halloween movies this month; or movies in general for the most part.

    But I'll be damned if I let this month end without watching the Halloween movie.

    Considering I only ever bother to watch this during Halloween season, I forgot how masterful Carpenter is at building suspense and making something so effective out of the simplest things. Good shit, son.

    While livetweeting this for the #TCMParty, I complimented Lorraine Toussaint on her powerful performance here (and trust me, she's SO powerful) then she thanked me and called me "very kind". It put the dopiest smile on my face.

    I really do get overly starstruck when celebrities notice/acknowledge me on Twitter. It's kinda sad.
