  • The Devil's Nightmare

    The Devil's Nightmare

    ★★★½

    If you owe the Devil - you better pay up!

    We begin with the waning black & white days of WWII - and a Nazi killing a newborn baby... Just to set the tone with a little backstory and give us a reminder that Nazis are bad!

    Then we go full color and our show really gets going! We meet a chubby bus driver slurping down a chicken leg while driving six other passengers - so you got to start counting…

  • Chopping Mall

    Chopping Mall

    ★★★

    Not sure if you kids will understand this - but shopping malls were really important in the 80's. It's where we shopped at, ate at, played video games at, shoplifted at, bought our paint, sporting equipment, skateboards and guns at. The mall was like our Amazon dot com but we got to hang out there with our friends! Now we just sit at home... Alone... Clicking... Wondering where that smell is coming from... Shopping malls were really important! That's why…

  • Body Double

    Body Double

    ★★★½

    This movie is so looney - what’s not to love?

    The Frankie Goes to Hollywood scene is out there! It’s madness! It’s one of those weirdo scenes that has been in the back of my mind since I first watched it.

    The whole movie is such a fun homage to Rear Window - but infinitely more pervy... I miss this Hollywood sometimes - the days of the major studio erotic thriller

  • Doctor Sleep

    Doctor Sleep

    ★★★★½

    It’s different enough in structure and in scares from The Shining that it could stand on its own as its own thing. I’m kind of glad that it’s a sequel though - if that makes sense. 

    No matter what for being a sequel to an all time classic it’s a whole heck of a lot better than it ever deserved to be!

  • Jurassic World

    Jurassic World

    ½

    I went in with the best of intentions. I "liked" each of the previous Jurassic Park films. I did not expect anything groundbreaking - just some dinosaur fun. That's all I really wanted - just some fun... I hated Jurassic World.

    I'm saying all of this below as soberly and as calmly as I can - I really wanted to like this movie - I really wanted to give it a better rating - but as I think about it…

  • Pee-wee's Big Holiday

    Pee-wee's Big Holiday

    ★★★★½

    I'm so happy right now!

    You can't go back! Nostalgia is a trap!! Force Awakens was a fluke!! ... I know you are but what am I? ... AHHHH!!!

    I've been rooting for Paul Reubens for so long to get a chance at another movie!! I've read interviews where he said he had plans but they would always fall through... but he finally got it!! And he fucking nailed it!!!

    Pee-wee's commute to work! Pee-wee's still the breakfast king! All…
