  • Yor, the Hunter from the Future 1983

    ★★ Rewatched 28 Jul, 2014

    My dad took me to see this when I was 8. I thought it was the best thing ever, because it had dinosaurs and lasers. But for years afterwards, whenever we'd see another movie my father would remark "Well, it sure as hell wasn't as bad as Yor." I should have listened to my Dad more often.

    Everyone is dubbed in the film, including Reb Brown, which is a critical mistake because you don't get to hear any of the random grunting and yelling he does when he acts.

  • Blame it on Rio 1984

    ★½ Watched 27 Jul, 2014

    In the 1980s people said "We're off to see the latest 'Dude has sex with his best friend's teenage daughter' movie" and since we were so busy with those damn Russians, no one thought to respond "Hey whoa wait a minute, that's not right..."

  • Batman Returns 1992

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 22 Jul, 2012 2

    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.

  • Foodfight! 2012

    ½ Watched 15 May, 2013

    The movie that's running on the monitors in the waiting rooms for Hell.
