Give Em Hell Malone
Frankie the Crooner: Suck my Sinatra.
It’s been a long time since I’ve cringed so consistently at a film. It’s like someone watched the Usual Suspects, read a bit about the noir genre, and then got a shitload of money from their uncle to finish their first draft script.
Let’s all pour one out for the late Trevor Bolder, formerly of the Spiders from Mars.
Judge Dredd: Negotiation’s over. Sentence is death.
An almost bafflingly pretty and well crafted film given the source material. The story is simple, and it reaches exactly the conclusion you expect, but its a fun ride, and a very stylish flick.
The Dead Zone
Greg Stillson: I have had a vision that I am going to be President of the United States someday. And nobody, and I mean nobody is going to stop me!
Crisp photography, a few instances of gruesome violence, a great pro/an-tagonist pairing, and an excellent premise, but the movie moves way too slow and does too little. I suspect that the filmmakers tried too hard to stay true to the King story, and it left the film feeling sluggish and sparse on the most interesting elements of the plot.
Oh jeeze, sorry, with this eyepatch on, I didn’t see you there.
Rocky Horror Picture Show
The Criminologist: And crawling, on the planet’s face, some insects, called the human race. Lost in time, and lost in space… and meaning.
Whether you love camp or not, it’s pretty clear this is the finest campy film ever made. It can be a bit much at time, but the cast is fun, the music is great, and it is a really enjoyable film to watch.
Oh god, you just shocked the freakiest man alive!
