5/10 … So seven university students travels to a summerhouse for some vacation. When they arrive in the small village we ofcourse get the generic wierd, dirty service store clerk, and I feel I’m already losing interest. But okey, lets continue, maybe we get some good effects and some nudity. But no, not even that. More or less just red colored water and apperent CGI sharks. So some nudity then? Not that either, just a quick side boob. A pretty good jump attack by a shark though.
6/10 … Jesse Eisenberg, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride and Dilshad Vadsaria … what’s not to like with that amazing cast? It’s pretty funny, I think I laught out loud 2-3 times, especially the early ”dumb as fuck” conversations between the bad guys Dwayne and Travis 😂. But in the end it never reaches the heights that I thought it would.
5/10 … Nah, this is nothing more than ok for me, but we have to keep in mind that it was David Cronenberg’s first feature film. For me it kind of feels like this was the practise round before “Rabid”, which kind of have a similar concept (rabid people, instead of sex crazed people), and I prefer “Rabid” big time.
The Slugs I think is nothing to complain about in a low budget movie from 1975 (that I heard others complain about), I have seen much worse CGI creepy crawlies from the last couple of years in other movies. Some casual nudity, but nothing “in your face” if that’s something you don’t like.
7/10 … This is beautiful early sleaze during the Golden age of Porn with 0% good actors (apart from Marilyn, but she doesn’t say a word through the entire movie). It all feels extremely cheap at first, with worthless actors and the first scenes before we get to the club. But then we enter the stage part and here we get the erotica. The scene scene with the black guy is pretty erotic, with more or less no close up on the genitels but more focusing on their faces and their panthing. Really hot. The third stage scene is some kind of group sex that’s pretty ok, with some interesting “artistic” finish shoots. The last sex scene is really, really nice with focus on Marilyn and again not that many “close up” shots but more a focus on body expressions and their pleasure. Really sexy!
7/10 … I love David Cronenberg, he has a cold touch to his movies without any tendencies to force comedy elements into them that I love. To me, he’s extremely underrated and should be mentioned in the same breath as John Carpenter, Tobe Hoper and Wes Craven, but never is. Could it be because it lack that comedy element that seems to attract a lot? Is it that he doesn’t care about happy endings or is it just as simple that he’s not American, but Canadian?
I like this movie a lot, although parts are kind of the same thing happening over and over again. Get bitten, bits the next person, but halfway through we get some more variation. I love Marilyn Chambers, I think she’s great in this role and ofcourse very pretty. I love that Mr. Cronenberg had the balls to hire her after she had made porno movies before this, a chance Hollywood didn’t get her.
6/10 … Now, here’s my dilemma. I hate to criticize these small companies that in my opinion does an amazing job making these obscure movies available. To me, it’s not just entertaining to see these old flicks, but important historical works so they don’t just fade away into obscurity and becomes an anecdote. But here’s my point, when it’s advertised as ”Brand New 4k Restoration from Original Elements”, you get certain expectations. When you then pop it into your Blu-ray player and it looks like a 5th generation VHS copy with something looking like the green northern lights across the screen throughout more or less the entire movie, then you kind of feel like you have been duped. I get that the source material can be shit, but maybe yiu should tell us about that?
5/10 … I love me a good Giallo, but I have to be honest, I usually lose interest half way through, and unfortunatly this is the case here as well. It’s beautifully shot during autumn in Venezia, Italy in those lovely 1970’s dark colours. It has those Argento-esque child choirs, some nudity, but more or less blood free.
Unfortunately it has one of my pet peeves in older horror movies, when a killer attack someone, the victim does nothing to fight back. Just presses themselves against the wall, screaming. I mean, a retarded penguin have more survival skills than these people. It’s also filled with nonsense, like strangling someone in a movie theater without anyone noticing. No kicking and screaming, just lets herself get strangled.
8/10 … I just love this, the fantastic 1970’s scenary in Italy. Small cars and scooters in high speed chases, old school bankrobbery, a rogue cop who bitch-slaps every single person he meets, machine guns that never run out of bullets, a hunchback that has the worst aim when shooting etc. etc. Maurizio Meril is awesome as the police with no rules.
9/10 … The show in itself is really good, and they travel to all kinds of locations to investigate. Since it’s American produced we get the usual half whispering narrator and some shaky hand held camera to make it more exciting for the general public. But all in all really good.
This escape theory is certainly interesting and since I’m an open minded person, I don’t discard claims like this when there are enough evidence to back them up. But the official story might as well be correct one, we will probably never know with a 100% certainty.
10/10 … After watching two seasons of this documentary TV Show, I think it is by far the best one I have ever seen. The host or main researcher Luis Elizondo, a former military counter-intelligence officer approaches this topic really serious and with a scientific mindset. He doesn’t go close to claiming it’s ”little gray men”, but know the phenomena is real and wants to find answers to what it could be.
6/10 … I love watching fighting scenes with Jackie Chan, unfortunately I don’t always like his movies when they have too much of the ”slipping-on-banana-peel” humor in them, that seems to be as common in Hong Kong kung-fu movies as dancing in Bollywood movies from India. But his more ”serious” movie like Rumble in the Bronx or Police Story are just awesome.
8/10 … Mr. Gaye had one of the most amazing voices in the history of soul music, but unfortunately with a tormented soul, that we can properly put on his fucked up father. A father that couldn’t give his son praise for his accomplishments, a cross-dressing pastor that gave his son shit for not making ”gods” music 😡, and ultimately killed him the day before Marvin would turn 45. May he rot in his christian hell forever and ever.
7,5/10 … The UK version is on my top 5 best/funniest sitcoms ever list, so I never watched this, the american version when it was first aired. And it took a while to shake of the ”let’s Americanize an already perfect show”. But when I forgot about the original, this is awesome. Especially the first 5 seasons.
3/10 … I’m a sucker for movies dealing with the occult and Satanism, if it’s done in a good way and the screenwriter has knowledge of the topic. But when it’s made by someone who just has a fleeting interest in the topic and get all the important details wrong, it shows and it’s unbearable …
Here I collect every short review I made on TV Shows. To see another genre look at the index page. You find it here! When it comes to TV Shows. I enjoy mainly the ones who follows a storyline throughout a whole season. TV shows where they are going to solve a case in 45 minutes I usually find very boring. As you see, sometimes I rate each season and sometimes just the whole show.
