John Saxon, my all-time favourite ”not leading role” actor passed away on July 25 in pneumonia in Murfreesboro, Tennessee at the age of 83. The news really struck me hard since he has been with me since I watched ”Nightmare on Elm Street” for the first time. He’s extremely charismatic and I don’t know why […]
I have no idea why Netflix makes it so hard to browse the different genres on their site. I started to look into it when it wanted to find movies from smaller countries in South America or the Middle-East but couldn’t in any easy way. Netflix will only recommend specific movies and genres if you’ve […]
8/10 … I love this movie, when it comes to virus movies I think it’s only beaten by Contagion from 2011 for me. It has a very “real” atmosphere and I actually think it would go down this way in a real life senario…….
7/10 … I have to admit, I’m really not a big Chuck Norris fan. I think his fighting style compared to for example Bruce Lee looks cluncky and also for him being a nutjob christian. With that said, this one I like a lot in all it’s “Cannon Film-ines”…..
7/10 … This is just amazingly fun, Rudy Ray Moore’s self financed first movie about his character Dolemite. We get it all … bad fighting scenes, cameras lingering too long on “actors” who don’t know what to do with themselfes, “Actors” who can’t deliever their lines naturally, boommic’s in the shot, Mr.Moore’s stand up Dolemite routine, Weird dance scenes when people eat, akward sex scenes … and ofcourse a lot of titties…
7/10 … It all starts with an Argentinian Snoop Dog lookalike somewhere in Asia sitting in a car looking like he has no good intentions at all … and we got that right. He and his gang are gonna kidnap a young woman. It gets violent … people are getting shot … without bullet holes … but with red paint inside the shirt :-), cut to introduction and the theme song, where the creator had looked both once and twice on James Bond. And off we go … midget with a shotgun, karate chopping midgets, cowboy midgets in trees, giant stone throwing in the head where the effect only is some blood on the forehead, some occult/satanic ritual, murderous vultures and much much more…
7/10 … This is one of the most WTF movies out there from the 1980’s. We get nazi bikers that all looks like inbreed rednecks and probably would be the first ones to go if they would have lived during Nazi Germany times and a lot of nudity with full grown 1970’s grandmother bush 🙂 …
6/10 (Should have been 8/10) … I kind of love this movie, original, funny, but holy f**k was the lead women Betty Gilpin as Crystal, miscast. To me she completely destroyed the whole thing. Her body language, her way to deliver the lines all felt extremely constructed and absolutely 0% feel genuine or natural. Apparently she has 38 credits on iMdb, but I have only seen her in the smaller role in the TV show Nurse Jackie, and if I remember correctly, she did that just great, so I don’t think she’s a bad actress but sure as hell this was a miscast. So this could have been a 8-9/10 but since she has such a big part and killed it (not in the good sense) it goes down several steps. They should have gone with ….
So on this page I collect Movies/TV Shows I didn’t finish … because you know, life’s too short! I have so many movies and TV shows I want to see so I don’t have time looking through an entire movie that starts out bad.
7/10 … Question … Did filmmakers in the 1980’s think that in the future nothing would have happened to fashion and hairstyles? 😂 This lovely b-action movie has that Mad Max or Post Apocalyptic feel. All gang members look like they been taken from a random gay musical on broadways back streets. The main lead Cody’s sibling Angel is impossible to judge if it’s a boy or a girl. Besides the gender confused teenagers this is an entertaining movie and we get the regular b-action movie trops like never ending magazines and a lot of action scenes. Another question, why do this automatic weapon equiped gangbangers even go to school? 😂
10/10 … You could put this movie in the Sci-Fi, Comedy, Coming-of-Age or the Horror category, but to me this is just a perfect movie and I wouldn’t change a thing. It’s fun, it has some scares, it’s fast paced and even do the kids that the movie is about, are obnoxious little shits, you get to like them. A really original script and it seems strange to me that it took the director, Joe Cornish 8 years before he made another movie. The lovely Jodie Whittaker (as Sam) is just amazing and the always funny Nick Frost kills it.
7/10 … OPINION:
I don’t know why this one is so disliked by most people (only 3,7 on Imdb), I personally had a real good time with it. I mean it’s a Roger Corman production, then you know what you’re going to get. Plastic snow, people not reacting to the thunder of the avalanche until 2 seconds before they get hit, nudity, post-avalanche victims have their hairstyle totally intact as if nothing had happened, not a bruise as far as the eye could see … what’s not to like?
8/10 … During the 1970’s we got a lot of disaster movies, and this one is among the better ones, although I love them all … more or less. It’s definitely on the top 5 list. It’s really realistic and you get the feeling they really filmed during real fires. It’s also jam packed with superstars such as Paul Newman, Steve McQueen, William Holden, Faye Dunaway, Fred Astaire, Richard Chamberlain, Robert Vaughn and O.J Simpson. Just unbelievable!
Can he somehow adopt me, so he can be my grandfather?
6/10 … Meep is the host of this podcast, and he is a very nice and warm host with a passion for 1980’s movies. And I really like people who’s not pretentious and can have a teen comedy on top of his best list and don’t feel the need to have something ”Oscars” there. When he’s joined by Jon Donahue it’s where it shines. Funny comments back and forth and both really passioned about movies. With that said, some episodes are unlistenable, like when he has his friend Jeffrey joining him. Try to listen to Episode 53: 1979 Movie Favourites, he has absolutly nothing to say and I couldn’t even finish the episode.
