  • Waxwork 1988

    ★★★½ Rewatched 31 Aug, 2014

    Upon this reviewing, things dragged a little bit when the film gets three-quarters of the way through.

    Despite it dragging on a bit before the climax, I still maintain that this film has everything you want from a late-night horror-comedy - especially the uncensored version. Werewolves ripping people in half, gooey vampire-inflicted leg wounds and goofy laughs abound.

    It's also got a solid sense of style and is thoroughly well-directed to boot.

  • Calendar Girl 1993

    ★★ Watched 29 Aug, 2014

    This period coming-of-age romp has chuckles and groans in equal measure, but is seriously undercut by the fact that these dudes are straight up stalking Marilyn Monroe. Their determination gets quite creepy - not to mention downright illegal at times.

    The film makes a massive misstep in wanting us to believe these kids camping out in their car overnight and constantly trying to break into her house is charming, and not straight up creepsville. Lotsa familiar faces pop up though, which brightens the mood a bit.

    The 90s - sheesh!

  • Fletch 1985

    ★★★★★ Added

    Michael Ritchie's Fletch is an endlessly re-watchable -- and quotable -- comedy/action flick with a solid plot adapted from the book of the same name. The kind of movie that I can watch any day of the year (and in any mood) and I'll love it no matter what.

  • A Talking Cat!?! 2013

    ½ Watched 14 Mar, 2013 13

    A drunk cat keeps messing around with two families in an attempt to ruin their lives. Or something along those lines. Did I mention that Eric Roberts voices the cat? Did I mention he recorded his voice-over in a garbage can? Did I mention David DeCoteau directed it? AVClub describes this movie as a talking animal movie meets The Room - pretty apt. I won't lie, I laughed pretty hard at this pile of crap a couple times.
