    Poor Fred MacMurray. If it’s a crime/noir, he just doesn’t stand a chance. Fred just can’t handle women, he’s girl-dumb. He stood no chance against Kim Novak, YOU WOULDN’T STAND A CHANCE AGAINST KIM NOVAK! You almost feel bad for Fred, a great cop gone lust-drunk, making the only decisions he can, the bad ones. This one starts off a little slow, cops stake out a bank robbers girlfriend's apartment in the hopes of grabbing him and the loot. Only the pure will be redeemed. Say a prayer for Fred. He didn’t stand a chance.

    More social satire from Downy, this one setting up by showing footage from American wars from Vietnam to the Civil, to jump into the real battleground of 1968: the singles scene. Part documentary, part social skits, it’s the most interesting of his early films that I have seen yet.

    Cannibal Holocaust


    It feels wrong to call this a classic, but it really is. It’s offensive, horrific, gross, and leaves you feeling almost despondent. Which means it absolutely succeeds in it’s goal in a way few films ever have. This was my 4th time watching it and it hasn’t lost any of it’s impact. It’s a real shame that they had to have animal cruelty in it. I can’t imagine the movie will ever have a better presentation than what GRINDHOUSE RELEASING has done with this blu-ray. If you’re a fan, it’s a must own.

    Spider-Man: Homecoming


    Everything is great as far as the casting goes, and there’s really nothing wrong with it. It’s just all a big yahn and I found myself not caring what happened. Another wet-noodle of a superhero movie.
