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.
|73 T7||Baron Blood (1972) - Jan 08, 2018
"Bava has done for castles what Berg did for oil rigs. Yes, Peter Berg. Yes, Deepwater Horizon. No, I did not remember his name. No, I did not remember that he filmed Deepwater Horizon. No, I did not remember the name Deepwater Horizon. Yes, I did google, "oil rig fire movie." No, I don't think it even amounts to a decent joke. Yes, I am sorry."
|70 T6||Southbound (2015) - Jan 08, 2018
"Floating reapers are the best image, but the hit and run is the best story. I really enjoyed the way that one played out. I mean as much as you can enjoy something so abhorrent. Pleasantly unpleasant."
|68 T6||The Curse of the Werewolf (1961) - Jan 05, 2018
"Oliver Reed is fantastic, but he doesn't show up for forty minutes! In the meantime we're treated to a rape in one of those remarkable scenes whose effect is unintentionally heightened because of the very censorship meant to lessen it. I wouldn't mess with a human Oliver Reed, but I would consider shaving his back."
|70 T6||The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave (1971) - Jan 05, 2018
"The background shots are as gorgeous as the redheads that bounce in and out of the narrative. A film that offers no redeemable characters but isn't as grating as so many modern horrors. "
|70 T6||The Raven (1963) - Jan 04, 2018
"A great time that was introduced to me by my father, and something I was able to introduce to my son. Next up it's hemophilia."
|82 T9||Five Element Ninjas (1982) - Jan 04, 2018
"A movie with two hundred martial artists and four sound effects, Five Element Ninjas is bonkers great for its entire run time. The swiss army axes at the end are immensely enjoyable and help the movie close out strong. Swiss Army Axe strong."
|80 T9||Ninja in the Dragon's Den (1982) - Jan 03, 2018
"Wowza! I'm not sure I knew what frenetic meant until I saw these guys occasionally just kicking their way into the next scene. Everything in this was awesome except the "homemade fortress" battle that goes on for too long. That part is well beyond awesome. This movie helped me realize how much I need Hiroyuki Sanada in my life more."
|60 T4||They Look Like People (2015) - Jan 03, 2018
"It's like if Andrew Bujalski got together with Joe Swanberg to produce a Duplass brothers script and got Alex Perry Ross to advise Ti West how to direct it in homage to Lynn Shelton. No, that's not mumblecore enough yet."
|70 T6||Fateful Findings (2013) - Jan 02, 2018
"Friend: "What do you think of this Neil Breen guy?" Me: "Well, he can't act, he can't write, his set design is awful and his sound design is worse, he somehow manages to cast actors that can't emote, he has no idea how to frame a shot and it's doubtful he could direct a coherent infomercial, but son of a bitch does he have a lot of laptops. Let's watch another one." "
|12 T1||Mistress of the Apes (1979) - Jan 02, 2018
"I've been looking for a certain kind of schlock. I will continue looking."
