charming

that "nah" is short-hand for "i disagree with everything you said but i don't feel like expending too much energy defending the new child's play movie"

I watched Murder Mystery on Netflix and I’m pretty surprised that I laughed my fuckin’ ass off with a movie starring Jennifer Anniston and Adam Sandler with a moustache. But here we are!

Really? But I think it doesn't matter, I need a good laugh anyway, so I'll watch this.


By the way - any recommended series at the moment? Lots of talk about Chernobyl here and there, so I think this would be good.
I'm absolutely no expert in contemporary series - I started The Man in the High Castle and The Fall yesterday, because they were mentioned somewhere. What else is worth watching in the dark chamber to overcome the heat until winter? Thanks for any recommendations!

atlanta, good

barry, real good
the assassination of gianni versace, real good
p'tit quinquin + coin coin & the extra humans, real good
too old to die young, real good
twin peaks the return, mind altering

These are the shows I’ve really enjoyed, I’d reference to CRs inquiry.

The Deuce - great so far
Chernobyl - GREAT
Mindhunter - GREAT
Sabrina the Teenage Witch - I loved it - I will probably lose sketchy edgelord PE points here but what can I say, it was hella fun
Billions - hella fun trash about rich assholes
Homeland - my favourite show in the last decade

I did not enjoy The Man in the High Castle - maybe had I not read the book?
I am also not enjoying Good Omens - I loved the book but overall the show is diverting wildly and losing all the charm of the book. Will I try Good Omens? Maybe....

double feature last night with:
Ruggero Deodato's "House on the Edge of the Park" (1980) This was my second viewing, the first being 3 or 4 years ago. I didn't like it very much the first time but that poster art is soo goddamn good I had to give it another chance. Plus David Hess. "enjoyed" it much more on second viewing. but it also left me wondering what it says about me as viewer to enjoy a film which is essentially 75 minutes of protracted sexual assault and violence. it's bad vibes through and through with no socially redeeming quality. my buddy was nonplussed; my girlfriend and his wife were both thoroughly displeased with it. I had no defense to mount. it's exploitation in the purest sense.

to ease the tension in the room we watched Arrow's Bluray version of "Bride of Re-Animator" (1990) which is just easy fun. It's not as amazing as the first film but it's still really damn good and suffers little from sequelitis. re-animated flesh monsters injected with glowstick green juice will never not rule. and all of the females are hot. except the re-animated old lady. recommended for anytime viewing.

is a great film! the sound design in that film is awesome esp, that pool scene -

im pretty sure atrax morgue was influenced by this film, i remember reading somewhere he liked it.

sounds like kind of an awkward group viewing.

berberian is a love letter to italian "weird" cinema of the 70s & early 80s
and it does its pastiche/tribute thing pretty well imo
it could be difficult to watch if one approaches it expecting something other than that though

also an anecdote on topic of ruggero deodato:
jess franco thought deodato was a nice guy but criticised him for making movies that are too violent and overall mean

if your significant others don't dig deodato, next time watch something by kindly grandpa jesús, you guys!

The Psychic (1977, Fulci)
A great "supernatural giallo".

Tights Worship: Inside the Practices of The Rita (2019, Mike McKinlay)
Amazing short doc on THE RITA. Directed by Sam's brother and produced by Kier-La Janisse (House of Psychotic Women) for byNWR - a curated media site by Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Valhalla Rising, Pusher trilogy, etc). Refn is one of my favourite directors, and it's amazing that this connection now exists.
