    In Search of the Wow Wow Wibble Woggle Wazzie Woodle Woo

    One of those occasions in which the watch sinks into itself and your viewing party is non-concerned with riffing and just happy to be there. Leading to a batch of reviews telling you the subject of the watch was better than it really was.

    I think I mentioned in another Movie Nights overview that I don't want to have been the one who started this, the concern that what we're watching isn't fun enough. My prattling on about selection during…

    The Frighteners

    ★½

    For my 2016 hoop-tober marathon, I purchased this film on DVD, along with a group of films I was planning to watch for my 90's marathon which I canceled pretty definitely. Not sure that's going to pick-up again, not seasonally anyway.

    Mentioned in my review that I had difficulty finishing the film because of some technical problems on my PC's DVD-ROM. The disc I purchased was the 2005 Director's Cut edition with a running time of 123-minutes. This week, I…

    Sleepaway Camp

    ★★★★

    This review was written in 2011, I believe:

    How many times is a rip-off able to surpass the thing it owes its' existence to? Only two films come to mind (Piranha is the other). Friday the 13th had great pieces but really didn't come together to be the best it could be (though it's still a personal favorite and always will be). Sleepaway Camp aims lower but nonetheless passes with Sleaze Honors. In the arena of so-bad-it's-good horror movies -…

    Jurassic Park

    ★★★★

    #63 in my 99 90's Movies month.

    Excitement and danger come first, characters come second. Which is totally okay in Spielbergia. Though those kids are incredibly annoying at times. ("Vegiesaurus! Meatasaurus!" ...Really, movie?) And some of the drama is pretty seriously forced down your throat (Laura Dern before eating the ice cream, Attenborough's super-scream on the telephone, Jeff Goldblum... in general, that kid and the tree climbing, and the fence jumping). But it is exciting and it never did skimp on the danger, did it? Holds up surprisingly well. I probably never enjoyed it this much.
