No short review - very old ratings, that I'm not so sure about any more.
|27 T1||Beauty and the Beast (2017) - May 23, 2017
"Knowing Disney of late I was expecting them to ruin a beautiful tale that prepares young girls for arranged marriages to ugly old dudes and teaches table manners with blatant feminist agenda. In fact, I didn't mind ideology of it. It's just the movie was boring and it sucked. Those songs, omg so horrible. Even Emma's cuteness didn't save it for me, at all."
|62 T7||West of Memphis (2012) - May 15, 2017
"I didn't expect to hear anything new, but West of Memphis succeeds where Paradise Lost films failed and makes a convincing case for the innocence of WM3. Also, it makes a convincing case for the guilt of Terry. It seems that nothing came out out of it (new documentary coming?), but still this is good documentary on its own. Definitely better that Paradise Lost 2 and 3. Jason is a great guy, it seems."
|58 T6||Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory (2011) - May 15, 2017
"I watched all three documentaries spanning 15 years in two days, so the epicness of the case was lost on me. The end (?) result was kind of fitting to me, because the documentaries didn't convince me neither of their innocence nor their guilt. Overall, I find modern true crime documentaries (The Jinx, Making a Murderer, O.J.: Made In America) much more riveting and entertaining."
|47 T4||Paradise Lost 2: Revelations (2000) - May 15, 2017
"As it is mostly a footage of crazy dude zonked out on meds doing playacting, it doesn't offer any new insights into the case. "
|64 T7||Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills (1996) - May 14, 2017
"What I don't like about these true crime documentaries is that they are missing the big reveal, where you learn THE TRUTH. Obviously the filmmakers were on the side of the accused and the documentary makes a good case of the conviction being a witch-hunt. But I am not convinced either of their innocence of their guilt. The setting of hillbilly states of America adds surreal and humorous aspect to the docu."
|57 T6||Yor, the Hunter from the Future (1983) - May 12, 2017
"[mini-series] Yor's world he's the man! Cheesy, butand fun loincloth and laser flick by who else if not italians.I have seen quite a few of these b-grade fantasies spawned by Conan's success and I have to say Yor is one of the better ones. "
|31 T2||Tornado (1983) - May 12, 2017
"Obscure (for a good reason - it sucks) macaroni combat flick. I suppose it tried to ride the wave left by Rambo (on some of the posters the guy has red bandana photoshopped on him). Really boring movie - dude doesn't get along with his CO, runs away to the jungle, gets captured and tortured by vietnamese, kills vietnamese, gets back, kicks his CO's ass and puts him on the hood of the jeep."
|80 T10||Best Worst Movie (2009) - Apr 09, 2017
"I loved the hell out of this documentary, it made me so happy. It seems almost staged at the times - how come everyone who was involved with Troll 2 happens to be certified weirdo IRL?"
|66 T8||Phantom of the Paradise (1974) - Mar 27, 2017
"Drug induced version of Phantom of The Opera. It's silly, but I liked the style. Also, I loved Jessica Harper's awkward dancing. I already rewatched scenes with her multiple times since."
|76 T10||O.J.: Made in America (2016) - Mar 17, 2017
"Really good documentary. It gives a lot of context for one helluva weird sociological event. Right from the start it surprised me how interesting story about american footballer can be. I remember hearing about this case on TV when it happened (I was as far from USA as one can be), but all the race-issues background was new to me. Fascinating."
