    Roadracers 1994

    ★★★½ Watched 24 Jan, 2015

    Toothy, footloose exercise in retro-rockabilly-drive-in kitsch, made for Showtime’s Rebel Highway project. The idea was to get established directors (Friedkin, Dante, Milius, McNaughton, etc.) to make low-budget ’50s-type B-movies; Rodriguez was the odd man out, since this was actually the biggest production he’d done up until that point. It shows; this is the work of a no-budge punk getting his first shot at the big time.

    Bonus: John Hawkes as the dorky bestie who's just had his mind blown by…

    No one's written the Great American Novel yet, but James Gray went ahead and made a movie out of it anyway.

    Bob the Builder: Big Dino Dig 2011

    ★★ Watched 02 Jan, 2015

    Suggested by Netflix algorithm based on 2-year-old's interest in Tugginta (Chuggington). Sorely lacking in too-too (trains), kwok (clocks), and tray (also train, sometimes tree). Rousing theme song contributed to viewer's later refusal to go to nigh-nigh (sleep, bed).
