"Martyrs" dir Pascal Laugier (2008) - I don't know why I thought I'd like this because I hate 90% of the New French Extremity...it gets so fucking insufferably boring and dumb...

1000% agree. Every single one of those movies I've had recommended to me has ended up being a cringeworthy turd.

Third day of heavy drinking (and it seems I'm getting too old for this) - so I came across Yellowbeard, haven't watched this for 15 years or more. According to John Cleese "one of the six worst films made in the history of the world". Love it.

Worshipped Winding-Refn's series Too Old To Die Young until the end where it took a turn into some feminist shit message about "it's the womens turn to be violent now". Thus another timeless masterpiece about amorality and violence as a natural and necessary force in humanity has been turned into a guilty compromise of current and soon to be very dated values.

Winding-Refn of all people. What a let down.

It is a bit surprising coming from him. In interviews said that he had no intentions to do anything of the sort but that he basically couldn't help it when dealing with being in Trump America.

So now he's just like all the others. What a turn off.

If it's so awful for Mr Millionaire Hollywood Movie Director to live in "Trump's America" then he could always leave. His career might take a step back but at least he'd be showing a bit of backbone.

Anyway, one more fuck up like this from him and I'm done with his movies.

Hounds of Love- I've been wanting to see this Aussie film for awhile now so finally purchased a U.S. release on BD-r dirt cheap on eBay. For the most part, it's good but the ending is melodramatic crap. The lead male actor is excellent as a cold sex abusing murderer.SNOWTOWN is much better & would make for a good double-feature. I'm anxious to see it again...

Recently received The New York Ripper & Sonny Chiba's Street Fighter Collection blu's. I have taken a look at the first S.F. film which will be the first time seeing it in Japanese & I'm not sure I've ever seen the third film. I hope Arrow releases more of Chiba's movies esp. Karate Bullfighter.

SNOWTOWN

This one never lets down after multiple rewatches. Great film.

Parents (1989)
Disturbed young kid in 50s suburbia suspects his parents of terrible things, turns out to be right.
A drama about the difficulty of being a child and growing up & being a parent and watching your child grow up, under the guise of stylized black comedy.
Somewhat similar to Celia from the same year. Not as epic, but nevertheless pretty good.

Don't want to start a new thread only for this so i try asking here... I'm trying to identify the movie this quote is from (at least I guess is from a movie):

«Always remember, there are only 3 different kinds of men: The worms, who can only crawl and lick your feet. And there are the slaves. The slaves that must obey, because they have neither brain nor will power. And finally you have the Dominators, the ones who command. The men who have the real strength, can power everything. If we don't want to be worms or slaves, then we must be Dominators. To us the Dominators».

A proper sample can be heard at the end of Kickback's song Cavalcare la tigre from Et Le Diable Rit Avec Nous

Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) - my second viewing, at home. admittedly the movie lost a little of it's impact on a TV when compared to the big screen but it's still damn enjoyable. It's a CGI driven Kaiju movie so if you want something beyond that, skip it. But if you want to see big CG monsters fight and a constant disregard for physics, the science of radiation and the like, it delivers. I can acknowledge that if this wasn't a Godzilla film all of the super-unrealistic stuff would bother me (and I can't help but laugh at the use of Osprey helicopters as the primary means of transportation in the film), but with Godzilla I don't care.

Mindhunter: Season 2 (2019) - much more consistent than the first season to me. I still can't stand about half of the characters, including the lead, and I think the character "development" is fucking dumb a lot of the time, BUT the interviews with criminals remain interesting and the Atlanta child killer stuff is fascinating as well. The finale reminded me a lot of The Wire in the way that nothing really gets fixed or resolved and the world keeps turning and everything bad will happen again. Nice.

Outrage Coda (2017) - finished Takeshi Kitano's Outrage trilogy last night. unfortunately I was so tired I probably missed about 30 minutes of this movie. it felt like the slowest and weakest of the three, but it provided a fitting (and expected) conclusion. Kitano reminds me of a Japanese Gary Oldman the way he's always chewing up the scenery when he's on screen. on the whole it's definitely a trilogy to watch if you like intense violence and yakuza politics. I'd say the first is probably my favorite given it's near Takashi Miike level of sadistic violence.

Thanks a lot! I spent the last 10 days looking for this damn movie and you solved the "mistery" in 15 minutes...
Ironically it's an italian movie... and I'm from Italy :|

I enjoyed both seasons a lot - definitely a good season but I wish they would have spent more on the interviews and developing the characters, especially Wendy and less on Bill’s creepy kid. I felt like after two years of waiting it didn’t really cover much.

I also started Succession Season Two - I really hate all these characters so much.

Binged watched The Naked Director on Netflix, a loosely based series on toru muranishi aka the emperor of japanese porn. Great cast of directors and actors (Lily Franky, Jun Kunimura, etc) and loads of porn for your entertainment. Fun watch!

Started this a few nights ago, enjoying it a lot so far. Biggest complaint is the use of modern electronic music in the score rather than soundtracking it exclusively with 80s J-pop and the like. But it's definitely a lot of fun!

last weekend was my annual Sleazy Slasher Saturday party. We didn't get as many films watched this go but it was still a blast. We watched:

So Sweet, So Dead aka The Slasher is the Sex Maniac - my second viewing. Code Red's BluRay gives such a nice presentation to a movie that shouldn't and doesn't need to look this good. My first viewing I had very high expectations and was let down but I liked it more this second time. it's a functional giallo with little flash or pizzazz, but a lot of qts get murdered and isn't that what it's all about?

Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge - first viewing for me. my friend mentioned this films legacy as the gayest horror film ever made and the main character's slow ascent into gay icon, but you really have to see it all to believe it. forget subtext, the gay aspect of this film is the film. and it's fucking great! the gore is solid, the sex/death gay vibes are perfect and the lead actress who looks like Meryl Streep's younger, hotter sister had me sweaty. and there's a Bobby Orlando track during the pool party! along with Dream Warriors this is easily the best in the series.

My Bloody Valentine - second viewing of this one, first time with all the gore added back in. I remember being nonplussed by this one as well on first viewing but the second time is the charm. easy to see why it's considered a classic. and the restored gore is real damn good.

Freddy vs Jason - fun, dumb as hell, kinda gore-y, lots of CG. what you'd expect but slightly better. the first chick to get nude is extremely hot and her eventual murder is satisfying. largely it's a painful artifact of its time but its never full-on boring so it gets a pass.

Candyman - my first time watching this one. it's much different than I expected. '90s goth while escaping a fair amount of the cheesiness of the era. Virginia Madsen is fucking hot! and Tony Todd kills it in every scene he's in. it's a slow build but it's worth it.
