50 24% Teenage Twins (1976) - Mar 28, 2020
"There was a weird trope in 'classic' porn of one sister turning out another, sometimes for kicks, sometimes for cash, still others for Cthulu. (Actually typing that out now I realize it's just an update of the white slavery trope of ye olde bawdy potboilers). Anyway this shoulda been the best, with the superkewt Youngs as twins who can feel each other's orgasms and Baba Booey's gross uncle as their college professor stepdad who is attempting to track down the Necronomicon oh hey look 500 charac"
50 24% Vice (2018) - Mar 28, 2020
"Diminishing returns after that other movie about diminishing returns"
55 30% The Late Shift (1996) - Mar 22, 2020
"Higgins and Roebuck in their get-ups look like two different yet equally unpleasant toes (with, indeed, very bad hair). Roebuck especially is pretty excruciating to listen to, but a vulgar frothing Kathy Bates makes the motherfuck up for it. Everyone else is fun. Balaban as Littlefield is duh but brilliant casting. Treat Williams as Ovitz, not so obvious but also great. Never noticed how much Rich Little looked like Ernest Borgnine till he was dressed up as Johnny Carson. Life's funny like that."
70 51% Lookwell (1991) - Mar 22, 2020
"One of the better failed pilots, and West's performance is probably the fullest realization of this kind of character. Note that John Swartzwelder's own pilot PISTOL PETE from a few years later is basically this same premise/tone transplanted to a Western, and failed just as fabulously. (The creators of THE GRINDER, idea-grafting onto legal procedural, diluted the insane artifice with a healthy dose of self-consciously cloying sentiment and thus were able to at least get a full season out.)"

"Barrels of bottom-scraping jokes and maybe two good ones but man is Bas Rutten fun doing this crud"
65 42% I Am Ali (2014) - Mar 17, 2020
"Argues in all but explicit metaphysical terms that Ali was some kind of archetype-transcending extrahuman being, trickster and prophet and warrior-poet in one, and does so not unpersuasively, but if any piece of hagiography could use a sharper eye on the moneylenders..."
10 4% Creed 2 (2018) - Mar 12, 2020
"Digital manipulation clearly went beyond the crowd construction copped to by the filmmakers: the fights play like a succession of overtouched screenshots from the back of a PC game box circa 2002. Bar none the most aesthetically repellent action sequences of any sports film I've ever seen, and the script's not far behind. If you think any previous entry featured anything as remotely ill-conceived & executed as that Missing Momski shit, get checked for chronic traumatic cinencephalopathy"
