    Born Killer 1989

    ★★★½ Watched 13 Nov, 2015

    Like BLOOD GAMES, here's another film that would be perfect for the BMFcast if it hadn't gotten super-rapey.

    If that stuff could somehow be edited out, you could have a fantastic time watching this tale of escaped convicts messing with paintballers in the woods, while everyone flees from bloodthirsty cops who don't care who's who.

    Odd in all the best ways, and every character seems like a real shitbird for reasons I still don't quite understand. The main bad guy…

    Blood Games 1990

    A traveling softball team of sexy, braless ladies encounters the reddest of rednecks. Bad things happen to the ladies. The ladies exact revenge.

    It's been a while since I've seen something seriously sleazy, and I wanted to nuke this town from orbit even before the exploitative rapey/death stuff sends our heroines into a murderous rage.

    Superior in every conceivable way to the first Michael Keaton BATMAN, and anyone who doesn't think so is out of their goddamned mind. Not only is Keaton perfect again, but so are Danny DeVito, Michelle Pfeiffer and Christopher Walken. The scene where Bruce Wayne and Selena Kyle discover each other's alter egos still gives me a rush, and I can't tell you how many times I say "You've got kind of a dark side, don't ya?" to other people. Great dynamics and themes going on all over the place in this one.
