    Brady (Solid Six Podcast)

    ★★★★½

    Boogie Nights is an iconic movie that has a legend - I think - that will outpace the impact that it had in the late 90s. I admire the achievement of making a mainstream movie, with award winning actors, about a very specific time and place in the history of porn. When I saw this at 16, I was dazzled by the technical artistry, the intricacy of weaving together so many stories, and the taboo novelty of an industry that…

    Listen, I don’t care what you have to say. I love this movie. I fucking love this movie. Wow me with your ape-daddy, Stan Winston. I’m a Rick Baker floozy but will let ya spank with these life-like death-gorillas with laser technology.

    If you’ve been to Disneyland, I assume you’ve been on the “It’s A Small World” ride. Santa Claus is a lot like that ride. And to its credit, it predates that ride by 5 years.
     
    However!

    It’s A Small World is 15 minutes. Santa Claus is over 90. So imagine being stuck on the “It’s A Small World” as it travels around in circles 6 times.

    Santa Claus is a curiosity. It supposedly turned a…

    The worst rated movie on your list is suddenly looking a lot spiffier now. Return this immediately to the Rob Zombie clip montage garbage heap of kitschy despair. Light the toilet on fire & flush repeatedly.

    ★★★★

    Casting JonBenet is deceptive in its brilliance. You need to pay close attention with this movie. Little by little, it sheds the obvious tropes of our insatiable appetite for gossiping one of the most famous crime cases in US history and becomes something much more sophisticated and frankly more interesting.

    What if your reality, what if your truth about your surroundings was merely a reflection of your external processing of your internal trauma? What if our need to be seen…

    Come for the the martial arts, stay for the knife foreplay and underwear fight scenes. Looking forward to chipping away on Cirio H. Santiago movies.

    I'll give ya $100 if you guess what the ending is.

    ★★★★

    Launched from the fabric of spacetime out of Reality’s butthole, Quantum Turd Dr. Eddie Jessup can finally say ‘I love you’



    Altered States is a fresh take on a Sci-Fi Thriller, replacing Spacesuits for googles & electrodes, spaceships with Sensory Deprivation Tanks, and signals from Aliens with psychoactive drugs. Ken Russell comes out in classic guns blazing style & the conflict with Chayefsky incidentally mirrors conflicts within the plot. The dream / hallucination scenes are excellent. Its like Contact, except for people who've had sex.

    ★★★★½

    Animation is the rare art form that can draw people in of all ages. The heightened visuals immediately catch the eye and often allow for visual expression of stories that are difficult to capture otherwise. And because of the ubiquity of the attraction to animation, we often get movies targeted to children or the occasional artistic experience from Pixar in the form of Wall-E, Up, Finding Nemo and the like.

    But there really aren’t that many movies that can be…

    Yo dawg, don't sleep on this one dawg. Legit goshdarn masterpiece. It'll rip your eyeholes open with its majestic synethestic magnificence. Feels incredibly modern for something that was made in '81.

    Bonus Points: the title sounds metal af.

    ★★★★½

    Horror Express benefits from excellent pacing, a cast of useful characters and a villain that continues to surprise. Everyone on-board this train knows exactly what movie they are making and the teamwork of Cushing & Lee is impressive. Telly Savalas tries to steal the show, but nothing derails the nicely crafted plot that keeps chugging along. My brain is boiling at an enthralled 8.

    ★★★

    Tit for Tat, The Vampire Lovers has exceptionally high ratio of funbags per fangs.

    "Why does she keeping going after noblity?"

    "Maybe they've got the best hooters?"

    Fun beginning & ending, the middle feels procedural & inevitable. As sexy as the ladies are (re: smoking), the seductions scenes are mostly boob snoozers. Bonus Points: Peter Cushing & Death Shrouds: who knew?
