|90 86%||Betty Boop's Crazy Inventions (1933) - Sep 15, 2009
"Genuinely witty. Evidently no Betty Boop cartoon is complete without her performing a song, and not only is it a real charmer but it's seamlessly sewn (heh) into the plot. They don't make 'em like this anymore"
|100 95%||Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959) - Mar 30, 2007
"So ineptly made, impassioned, and utterly crazy that it's beautiful to behold. Absolutely not to be missed"
|91 90%||Traffik (1989) - Jul 17, 2009
"I saw the US movie version first. I must say I admire what a fine job Mr. Soderbergh did of transplanting this story to another continent and reinventing the cast of characters, but I still find this to be a little better. Its length allows for more detail, the absence of stars lends verisimilitude, it's often rawer and ickier... and Lindsay Duncan is a much better actress than Catherine Zeta-Jones. Sexier, too."
|50 33%||Anvil! The Story of Anvil (2009) - Apr 19, 2009
"Yes, this is a real movie and "Anvil" is a real band, despite the drummer's name and a couple other things that look like _Spinal Tap_ references. The whole time I was thinking, "These guys are SUCH retards." Further evidence for the longstanding theory that people who are into drugs (even the legal ones) never grow up; in particular, "Lips" has the "stoner" default facial expression, and still speaks the "Sup dude!" metaller patois despite being over 50. Their music isn't so hot, either"
|90 86%||Twice Upon a Time (1983) - Apr 13, 2009
"This is a lot of fun. Should be better known than it is"
|80 68%||Dracula vs. Frankenstein (1971) - Nov 23, 2009
"This is an awful movie, but it's so fascinating. One of the central locations is a low-budget freak show, and that's exactly what this whole movie is. Naish and Chaney, both dying men at this point, going through the motions as yet another mad scientist and yet another Lennie variation. Russ Tamblyn as a biker who keeps wandering in and out of the movie. An astonishingly large number of name actors for a production this shoddy. Risibly inept makeup, photography, scripting, direction, etc., etc."
|100 95%||Document of the Dead (1985) - Jun 06, 2009
"Excellent documentary about the man and his work. Just make sure you see _Two Evil Eyes_ before you see this, since this contains spoilers for that movie"
|90 86%||Crac (1981) - Oct 11, 2008
"I remember seeing this when I was a kid; in adulthood, it took me forever to figure out what it was. By pure chance I wandered into a museum exhibit recently featuring Back's work, and I finally realized. A recent re-viewing of this animation shows it to be even better than I remembered"
|100 95%||Betty Boop's Ker-Choo (1933) - Sep 14, 2009
"Do we Boop? Oh fuck yeah we Boop. Dave Fleischer cartoons are much better than most of the toons produced today as it is, but this really hits the spot. Enormously funny and charming from start to finish"
|50 33%||Night and Fog (1955) - Mar 26, 2007
"Thunder stolen by all the subsequent films and TV shows about the Holocaust"
