DISASTROUS DOUBLE FEATURE: “Revival of Evil: The Occult in America” (1980) / “Cult Explosion” (1980)

Oh. My. Stars. And. Garters.  Who remembers the early 1980’s?  Remember the Satanic Ritual Abuse Panic? Remember how there were at least tens of thousands of people who were alleged members?  Remember regression therapy?  Michelle Remembers? Seriously, if you didn’t … Continue reading

FLAWED FILM FRIDAY: “Sorcerer” (1977)

  To be fair, it’s too easy to dismiss films in the 1970’s.  You hear about a film about big trucks, and you think Convoy, or Smokey and the Bandit, or possibly Duel (which is really good).  You hear about a … Continue reading

MINI MOVIE REVIEW: “Redline” (2010)

  Wow.  Okay.  So … imagine, like, Speed Racer with much better animation (7 years worth, with 100,000 drawings), Deathrace 2000, but with much more bizarre yet likeable characters with impossible DA pompadours, the good parts of the pod race … Continue reading

MINI MOVIE REVIEW: “Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht” (1979)

Look, I’m just going to say it.  I don’t get Werner Herzog.  I don’t get Herzog like I don’t get Fellini, like I don’t get Warhol, like I don’t get Eraserhead.  God knows I’ve tried.  I’ve seen Fellini’s 8 1/2 one … Continue reading

MINI MOVIE REVIEW: “Disco Godfather” (1979)

  Oh Lord above, it’s a Blaxploitation flick from 1979.  The flares are bigger, the bling is blingy-er, and the sweet ladies are sweeter than Sweet Momma Stringbean in Crow T. Robot’s seminal script for Chocolate Jones and the Temple … Continue reading
