    Cool as Ice 1991

    ★½ Watched 24 May, 2015 2

    Tonal Shifts: The Motion Picture!

    It's a music film! It's a romance! It's a cartoonish comedy! It's a parental mystery film! It's an art film! (Well, it's shot like one, anyway.) It's a kidnapping thriller!

    It's a pseudo-remake of Rebel Without A Cause!


  • Without Warning

    Without Warning 1980

    ★★★ Watched 24 May, 2015

    Fun - albiet middling - slasher-era space-man horror flick finds a group of teens elbowing up with some genre greats (Martin Landau and Jack Palance, here a few years before re-teaming for the underrated Alone in the Dark) as they try to out-wit and out-run a basketball-headed alien who tosses little organic-disc doo-dads at them.

    Structured like a cabin in the woods slasher featuring an alien instead of a murderer, this still manages to be a fair time despite feeling a little so-so overall. The disc-thingies are pretty cool though, and lead to some entertaining effects.

    A good weekend time-waster.

  • Fletch

    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!?!

    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.
