Bio: I'm going to fudge my rankings and uprank movies that are my actual favorites. My favorite movies are rarely the best in craft. And while one of my favorites may be the expertly crafted The Godfather, I'm not going to be using this unique opportunity to recommend you something you already know you should see. If you were waiting for me personally to convince you to watch Seven Samurai, you have put too much pressure on a guy that likes Michael Dudikoff films. I had previously given Ravenous an 86 when in reality it's a 75 tops. Now it's a 100. Welcome to my recommendations.

|55 26%||Blood Feast (1963) - Jul 19, 2018
"Requesting remake starring Guy Fieri!"
|70 59%||Daughters of Darkness (1971) - Jul 19, 2018
"We have a pretty great film festival where I live. It’s taken me years to figure out how to interpret the brief blurb that they use to sell the films to the festival going audience. Example: any movie described as “subtle” is a film where nothing happens the entire runtime. Anything listed as “gorgeous” has no plot to tie together the beautiful cinematography. I’m a bit wiser now but being exposed to those films does expand your horizons. That said, this film is “deliberate.”"
|59 33%||Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama (1988) - Jul 18, 2018
"That imp was SASSY. Wise cracking horror villains are like hecklers at an Andy Dick stand up special. Let’s just sit here and watch this thing die in quiet. "
|68 50%||The Prowler (1981) - Jul 18, 2018
"Nobody cuts away from the murders in this one. There’s a sort of tenderness behind how long the camera lingers on a woman’s throat being cut. Not for the woman, mind you. None of the characters matter much which is a shame because the major highlight of the oft compared My Bloody Valentine is the relationship between the three leads (not including the brutal murderer). It was slasher fun which is in no way related to actual fun. "
|70 59%||Rabid (1977) - Jul 17, 2018
"She uses Lotrimin as deodorant. If this movie was made today there'd be a new fetish for armpits. Actually, I bet there is a fetish for armpits. I'm going to do exactly no detective work on this one."
|74 70%||Sleepaway Camp (1983) - Jul 16, 2018
"Makes Meatballs look like Wet Hot American Summer. Wait... This movie has its fair share of fantastic one-liners and also one very surprising one-donger. "
|70 59%||Tourist Trap (1979) - Jul 16, 2018
"Weirdo PG masterpiece. I can't imagine the ratings board watching this and just shrugging, "I don't know, I guess if your mom is there it's fine." Not where I'd want to be as mannequins are creepy, but it's still less of a tourist trap than South Dakota's Wall Drug."
|85 91%||Before Sunrise (1995) - Jul 06, 2018
"An intelligent, realistic depiction of two humans forming an immensely strong connection entirely through conversation. Gross. "
|80 83%||El Mariachi (1993) - Jul 05, 2018
"The sort of movie that laughs at your excuses for not making your own movie. If you’re honestly thinking this movie is lacking something that Desperado has, you’re right. It doesn’t have Enrique Iglesius. "
|70 59%||It Comes at Night (2017) - Jul 05, 2018
"Reminded me very much of The Invitation, complete with a nuanced convincing performance from a lead actor that I can’t stand. Human interaction will always be more frightening than a genetically mutated deer whose hooves have formed hooks somehow and also it craves human flesh for some reason. Granted that might not have been their “It,” but honestly, who’s to say it wouldn’t?"
