    Death Becomes Her

    jacob mouradian

    The whole dichotomy of a man being pitied for having his greater purpose in life squelched while the women around him are only seen to indulge in acts of superficial envy and petty selfishness feels chauvinistically outdated. Thankfully, Zemeckis is operating on such fantastical and farcical levels that it doesn’t really matter if this schism is thoroughly interrogated, and the rough edges are further smoothed over by his heartfelt reminder of a denouement that immortality comes from our community-wide actions…

    An interesting and twisting movie with beautiful costumes. Just got a bit to long at the end.

    One of the worst ever. STOP
    Nothing redeeming. STOP
    The level of quality you'd expect from a group of 8 year olds who watched Conan once and were asked to remake it. STOP

    DO NOT WATCH THIS. EVEN IF YOU ARE A FAN OF BAD MOVIES.

    'What's New Pussycat?' is a glorious fiasco where as this, apparently an attempt at a sequel, is simply a hideous mess.

    Movie Number 22 of my Birth Year Challenge

    First I thought this movie woulde be to difficult for me, that I wouldn't enjoy it a single bit. Well, maybe it was to difficult but I wasn't bored a single bit.

    I especially liked the homage to Le Voyage dans la Lune and how Ivens got himself his own Terracotta Army.

    I got interested in his older works as well and might watch one or two of them.

    Film #10 off my Birth Year Challenge

    I’ll give the film credit for not just being about a faceless murderer. It was somewhat interesting and certainly set itself apart from the pack for actually attempting to delve into the life and psychosis of the killer.

    Ultimately, however, this wasn’t very effective (for me, at least). It had some decent ideas that weren’t terribly…

    ★★

    A movie at odds with itself. Blunt retelling of history with awful people making up the entirety of the cast... but it's told with a weird sense of humor. It's like, are we meant to be laughing? Are we even meant to be enjoying this at all? And if so, what parts? I found it thoroughly unpleasant and easily the weakest of the Verhoeven films I have seen.

  • A League of Their Own

    A League of Their Own

    jacob mouradian

    There's a lot of ground covered here – not only about suffocating mid-century gender roles and sexism in general but also with regards to how those things can be leveraged against women by external forces pitting them against each other, tying their worth to a greater, harder-to-achieve, man-made image of perfection, all of which is done mainly for the profit of corporations under the guise of mild progress. ("I sold you a product when there wasn't a product. This is…

    Bad Lieutenant

    jacob mouradian

    A dastardly descent into drug-addled depravity.

    With the lieutenant’s addictions, prejudices, and malfeasances all laid bare, it’s obvious that screenwriters Lund and Ferrara are not attempting to gild the criminal justice system’s penchant for corruption and greed. Keitel’s lieutenant is never portrayed in a positive light, and even his attempts at rehabilitation through redemption is tainted with self-serving adulation. It’s too little too late for him, and he knows it. The aimless sense of plotting is emblematic of his distance…

    Birth Year Challenge 1989: Film #12

    All that did was give me a hard-on!

    In a bold casting decision, the house from House has been replaced and instead of the lighthearted PG-13 goofiness of the first two pictures this one is a pretty intense slasher. Lance Henriksen and Brion James are excellent and there's a bizarre scene involving a possessed turkey.
