Bio: My 2020 goal is to watch more bad movies. My 2019 goal was to point out my favorite scene in each film.

For awhile I considered adding spoiler tags, then decided against it.

Average films are 40-60/100. Ratings ending in 5 mean ♥ (rewatchable and/or would look forward to watching something with a common director/actor).

TV ratings are a lot more extreme.

"Misleading poster/cover which said "a century of revenge" with native Americans lurking in the background. Instead those natives are barely in the movie, though I was wondering when they would show up again, maybe to unite the friends as a common enemy. Nice easygoing road trip was more enjoyable than creepy vet. Fav scene: Jo Ella dancing naked on the barstool and the actual performer being pissed off because who wouldn't be? I'm trying to work here!"
60 56% Savage Dawn (1985) - Jul 05, 2020
"Oh it's just another silly typical bad biker terrorizes town movie in the '80s. Then the fucking tank shows up and elevates this movie to 11. I didn't care for the interpersonal drama so I didn't pay attention. Maybe there's a masterpiece in plot here and I missed it. Fav scene: tank and bazookas blowing shit up."
70 72% Made in Hong Kong (1997) - Jul 05, 2020
"It's a low level crime film with the backdrop of Hong Kong being more interesting than the frustrating failure-to-launch Moon. But they can't all be criminal masterminds, especially if they never had the advantages in life. I agree with PeaceAnarchy that HK films are unevenly paced. Often cliched style is chosen over substance. The high school melodrama was not a highlight. Seeing failed adults was a treat. Fav scene: storming the office looking for Fat Chan and hearing from not-so-fat Chan. "
50 40% Supercock (1975) - Jul 04, 2020
"Came for the title, stayed for the plot. Typical sports movie with some waxing poetic about the beauty of the unfixable sport. Guy gets girl in the end. Fav scene: shootout with watermelons."
70 72% The Last Picture Show (1971) - Jul 04, 2020
"Boomer nostalgia porn. Burstyn and Shepherd were great. I appreciate the harsh look at small town Texas, but in many other ways it was idealized. The sex was so sad or mechanical. Ending took too long and was too happy but I'm glad Shepherd never returned. Also too soap opera-like. Fav scenes: Burstyn just being a cool mom; Leachman's Ruth's outburst. "
20 4% The Malicious Whore (1979) - Jul 04, 2020
"I got tired of the plot after awhile and switched to commentary. The nun didn't play much of a role until the second half. This was basically softcore Exorcist with hardcore scenes edited in. Really detracted from what could have been a better movie. I'm not sure the ending had a good enough foundation to make work, but it sure ended the film. Fav scene: lifting up her dress at a dinner party because fuck your manners."
40 26% Daphne & Velma (2018) - Jul 04, 2020
"I had this on my remembered list for awhile and apparently I didn't mind it, though it was quite juvenile. I'll have to rewatch later now that I've watched a lot more Scooby-Doo."
50 40% Crazy World (2014) - Jul 04, 2020
"It was nuts like other Wakaliwood films. Fav scene: kids breaking out and kicking ass."
50 40% The Lovebirds (2020) - Jul 03, 2020
"Good chemistry between Nanjiani and Rae. I'm already a fan of both. The plot is okay with a predictable twist. Would have been nice to see them around more people while on the run. Bad guy was dumb and I just don't like the actor, who also wasn't great in House of Cards. Could have leaned into conspiracy more. Nice cameo from Anna Camp. Fav scene: getting kicked by the horse."
30 13% First Sunday (2008) - Jul 02, 2020
" I actually watched this before but totally forgot. I'll keep paying to watch Ice Cube scowl/disapprove in movies. Nor sure why Katt Williams gets top billing here. Malinda Williams, though, was fiine. Fav scene: Tracy Morgan giving away their real names."
