• Pecker


    I’ve been burning through Waters’ recent book “Mr. Know it All” so it’s a good time to fill in my gaps with his work, and I think my hunch about this one was right. After Serial Mom, there’s a real nosedive. This starts off charmingly enough but the premise gets tiresome and there’s some ill-conceived ideas (why would the shoppers at the grocery store buy the items Pecker and his friend slipped into their carts and then get enraged when…

    Oh big deal, I could do this with a GoPro. But seriously, this is a crazy project with a setting as mesmerizing as its approach. I would’ve run around with a spray bottle spritzing the actors who spiked the camera (even though this is vaguely a POV film).

    Jennifer's Body

    You know the cliche of having a beautiful Hollywood person sport some glasses and maybe a plaid shirt and then being touted as the “nerd”? Yeah well this movie might do it more preposterously then any I’ve seen that come to memory... suspending my disbelief that Amanda Seyfried was the homely friend was SIGNIFICANTLY harder than buying into Megan Fox spewing black CGI sludge.

    Attack of the Giant Leeches

    Some of the trifling humans are actually worthy of screen time in this... I enjoyed the cheating wife and simp husband character. Also, it has a scene where an old guy yammers “radioactive” yadda yadda yadda “gigantism” yadda yadda yadda to a woman crammed in at the end, which was an explanation so patronizing and sloppy that I can’t help but be charmed by its deployment. Leechy go slurp!

    Super Fly

    My favorite soundtrack of all time (tied with The Good, The Bad The Ugly) and an utterly boring film filled with people talking about drugs in rooms. It does have a lil Curtis Mayfield cameo though, and vibrant 70s aesthetics (attire in particular).
