    ★★★★

    [Sante Sangre 9 1st Impression Part 1]

    Step inside our circus tent.
    Please ignore the dead elephant
    We had to give him up for Lent
    Step inside! Step inside!

    We've got thrills and shocks
    Downs kids snorting Chinese Rock
    Leave your right ear in the box
    Come inside! Come inside!

    Roll up! Roll up! Roll up!
    See the show!

    Left behind the bars
    Orgo samples the tattooed lady's charms
    Won't someone please call the gendarmes
    Before his wife is totally…

    The Fall of the Roman Empire

    ★★★★

    Come on all you plebes
    Get up on your pedem
    Get with the metrum
    There's a brand new dance craze sweeping the Imperium
    And it's called the Funky...Fall of...Roman Civilization

    Well there's a riot in the Forum
    There's a fire in the street
    There's poor Livius bein' trampled
    By a thousand drunken feet
    There's a horde of filthy Germanic tribesmen
    Fighting our legions without a chance
    Now don't that make you want
    To jump right up and start to dance?…

    The Waterboy

    ★★

    I last watched this hungover, while on a bus coming back from a very disappointing Milwaukee Brewer's baseball game shortly before my life turned into a neverending series of family health crises. I hated it then, but after rewatching it tonight, I've decided that I merely dislike it intensely.

    Let's face it, this is just Adam Sandler channeling Forrest Gump and Jerry Lewis in a remake of Any Given Sunday. There are dumb jokes a-plenty here, a few of which…

    She-Devils on Wheels

    ★★½

    My review of Earth Girls Are Easy sent me obliquely down a rabbit-hole of Josie Cotton tunage last night, leading me to stumble upon her awesome cover of Get Off the Road, which in turn led me back even further to the Cramps' version of the same tune, then finally, returning to its original appearance as the theme song of the Herschel Gordon Lewis film, She-Devils on Wheels.

    I had heard this song years before seeing the film it came…

    Harold and Maude

    ★★½

    I get why this film resonates so much with a specific demographic of nostalgic old hippies, and aging baby-boomers who feel creatively stifled by their careers, but its central message of tuning in, turning on, and dropping out was a tad outdated even when it was originally released, and it certainly hasn't aged like a fine wine since.

    But what really chaps my ass are the 1-dimensional strawmen authority figures that director Hal Ashby sets up as Harold's obstacles on…
