    ★★

    68 Over-the-top corporate espionage thriller in which all sorts of broken people will resort to everything from poisoning, kidnapping, sex trafficking and murder to get what they want. The overriding theme is desensitization to violence, especially of a sexual nature. It’s a bit all over the place, scenes are so disjointed they almost seem to be shown out of order. Some parts might not have really happened? It’s not good enough to waste my brain cells pondering such mysteries.

    ★★★½

    83 Extremely cute short in which, for unexplained reasons, a silly mugging horse is kicked out of the “Elite Stables” and pulls out all the stops to entice jockey Porky Pig into becoming his new owner. After many funny but unsuccessful attempts to wow him, the horse gets his chance when Porky’s regular mount accidentally gets too drunk to race. Pretty fun. I liked the horse character a lot, not sure if he ever appeared again.

    87 “I dunno what the hell’s in there… but it’s weird and pissed off, whatever it is!” This remake of the 50’s film hews much closer to the original short story, in which the alien life form is able to shape change and mimic any creature it infects. So we not only get the dreadful isolation of these desperate men being trapped far from civilization in the frozen wastes of Antarctica with a monster, but they have no idea whom…

    94 James Franco is amazing not only as the director here but in the starring role of Tommy Wiseau, one of the craziest accidental movie stars in the history of Hollywood. A mysterious guy with an inexplicable accent, Franco so fully commits to this ridiculous role I have no idea how the other actors could keep a straight face around him while making this. I dunno if any of this is real or not (did the Room really come to be due to Tommy’s unrequited crush on Greg?) but it makes for a hilarious story. Such fun.
