    That Guy Dick Miller

    ★★★

    The best kind of "home movie" - like spending 90 minutes with friends you forgot you had.

    ★★★

    I wish I lived in an O scale miniature hotel. I'd never stop riding that funicular.

    ★★

    January Jones continues to astound with her range. I think she frowned and maybe slightly grimaced twice - two new additions to her android programming. Luckily the role called for her to be a Terminator in a dress, so she was in the zone.

    But all snarking aside, I do like a small cast, dirty, neo-noir western and this checked off a few boxes for me. Nice Ed Harris performance (as a proto-CSI sheriff) and Jason Isaacs does his usual villain at a 100 mph.

    ★★★

    My rating is purely for the poster art - aka the VHS box - which I passed many a time at my local video store in the 1980s. Wow that looked cool.

    Too bad it's shit.

    The first time cinema broke my heart with false advertising.
