I absolutely loved this movie as a teenager, and watching it now, I can absolutely see why I loved it as a teenager, it's literally the cinematic embodiment of 15 year old suburbia. We got Danny Trejo here and we definitely have his 3 B's going (blood, boobs, and bullets).
The Babadook 2014
Watched with Joe Bob and Darcy this time, great episode as usual but I can't believe no one told Darcy the story of how The Babadook became an LGBTQ icon - didn't it originally get listed as a spotlight film during Pride month on Netflix, and then the branding just stuck?
Female Trouble 1974
"Oh, it's true. Look in the mirror, Taffy. For 14, you don't look so good. It's because you've been such a brat all your life, that now all that brattishness is showing in your face. The face of a retarded brat!"
"Yes siree, that's a real time warp of a face you've got there."
A History of Violence 2005
Had myself an Ed Harris-filled weekend, so you know it was a good one.
The Dark and the Wicked 2020
Legitimately gave me anxiety through the whole first hour. This is a master class in tension and while it comes off the rails a bit towards the end, this is a genuinely scary, no good feels type of movie.
I've bounced around between thinking this or Part 2 is better, but after this viewing, I'm firmly back in the camp that Part 2 is better - it's just more efficient and I enjoy the stories from Part 2 more overall. I can't stand the Stephen King plant segment - cut that and this gets a whole extra star.
Hell or High Water 2016
Literally the most 'perfect' movie for a chill Sunday morning. Nothing like a little bank robbin', beautiful Texas landscapes, and good ole ribbing to start the day.
Fist of the North Star 1986
Sickeningly violent yet somewhat childish in execution and I couldn't look away. Also the version I saw did the thing I love which is edit in previously cut violence which is noticeably degraded from the rest of the remastered film, idk why but I always love movies that have that.
Dead Poets Society 1989
This was a first time watch for me and i found it almost sickeningly innocent and saccharine for the first 90 minutes or so, I kept saying "I wish someone showed me this 15 years ago!"
The ending feels a little emotional-baity but it's effective enough, I was definitely wiping my eyes.
Zombie Flesh Eaters 1979
What a pleasure taking this in alongside Joe Bob and the Fabio Frizzi band! It's a bit tragic how much Ian McCullough clearly hates this movie, though.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri 2017
I hadn't seen this in years when I randomly decided to give it a second shot. I originally blind bought the blu ray, absolutely hated it, and hadn't tried watching it again until now.
This time, I realized the key to experiencing this movie is to never watch it when you're in a good mood (that must have been my original mistake). Everything about this is ugly, and I guess that's a big part of why this is an interesting…
Kill Her Goats 2023
This is objectively a bad film in almost every way, but one thing I can't fault is Wolsh's casting - this thing is filled to the gills with Instathots and ex-Playmates exposing themselves in ways that would make Russ Meyer proud. And while all of this feels exploitive as hell, I was reminded of a few similar films which I LOVE (like Hard to Die and Auntie Lee's Meat Pies). While Kill Her Goats is somehow 100x dumber than those,…
