    Mad Monster Party?

    ★★½

    Movie #6 of A History of Horror – 2018 Weekly Challenge.
    Week 6: Boris Karloff
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    A horror-themed stop-motion feature with all the classic monsters assembled in one movie. What's not to like?

    Well, it's a little boring with some awful songs that don't do anything but slow the film down even more.
    The movie is not bad and his some great voice talent and some even greater characters.
    In some scenes the dialogue is driven by puns to a point where it is too much.

  • Mr. Bug Goes to Town

    Mr. Bug Goes to Town

    ★★★

    Movie #6 of Weekly Animation Challenge 2018.
    Week 6: Director Spotlight: Dave or Max Fleischer
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    A fun and sweet film.
    The animation is good and charming but the best thing about the film is the character designs - especially the two "evil" and goofy characters.

    The story itself isn't that special but it is sweet and has a sweet moral that is still relevant today.

    ★★★★★

    This is one of my all-time favorite movies.
    Everything just works: the acting, the chemistry, the settings, the intensity, the romance, the emotions.

    Perfect!

    Can't wait to watch "Before Midnight".

  • Night of the Creeps

    Night of the Creeps

    ★★★½

    Movie #31 of Hoop-tober.

    So much fun!
    Alien slugs, an alcoholic bitter policeman, a nerd who has a crush on the popular girl, a flamethrower and zombies.

    I was entertained. A pleasant last entry for hoop-tober.
