The problem I had with going to see 2001 in 70mm on a head full of is I can't watch that movie outside of that context any more even though I stumble out of the theater in an existential crisis about how I haven't done anything with my life every time.

The House on Haunted Hill remake is so good up until the last 20 minutes when it turns out to be a smoke monster with titties and the ghost of Chris Kattan saves everyone.

Think I'm gonna go on a hunt for that Criterion Female Trouble today.

We need a stacked FREAKED Blu-ray that matches the two disc DVD special edition, although the Blu-ray has the greatest feature of all: it just restarts the movie after you finish watching it.

Even if Arrow's version is a hair better, I still highly suggest Forbidden Zone if you're into vintage cartoons (and all the problematic stuff that tends to come with them), New Wave, titties and Satan.

The dude who directed It's Pat the Movie also directed the music videos for Push the Lil Daisies and Baby Got Back, so he gets a lifelong pass from me.

EDIT: I would like a feature that points out the uncredited rewrites Quentin Tarantino did on the script, though.

quote:

Playboy: You were hired to do a rewrite of It’s Pat. As one now familar with the perspiring androgyne from Saturday Night Live, is Pat a he or a she?

Tarantino: The androgyny aspect is only a part of Pat’s appeal. What I love about the character is that Pat is so f*cking obnoxious. To tell the truth, I don’t know what Pat is. But I know what I want Pat to be: I want Pat to be a girl. There was only one sketch that Julia Sweeney, the actress who plays Pat did on Saturday Night Live that gave a clue to what Pat is. It was the sketch that Pat did with Harvey Keitel. They’re stranded on a deserted island and they have sex – and Harvey still doesn’t know what Pat is. And the thing is, they kissed in it. At one point they were thinking of taking the kiss out of the sketch. But Harvey, being Harvey, demanded they keep it in, that there’d be no integrity without the kiss. So that was the first time we’d seen Pat in an intimate situation – a smooch. There is a certain way that you hold your head, the way you come in for a kiss. And sitting there, watching it, I thought that Pat didn’t kiss like a guy. Pat kissed like a girl.

I'll never point a finger at a movie and say it doesn't belong in glorious 1080P high definition when I'm achingly pining for a Blu-ray of Transylvania 6-5000.

EDIT: I also deeply treasure my double pack release of Student Bodies and the absolutely truly sublime Jekyll and Hyde... Together Again. I will always shill for that loving movie - if you like really really stupid, shamelessly funny poo poo, I'm talking Man With Two Brains/Freaked/Hot Rod levels of stupid, Jekyll and Hyde... Together Again is your jam.

This just popped up on my Twitter. Basically, Apple removed movies this guy bought on iTunes and won’t refund him, instead offering a few free rentals. Just another reason to stick with buying movies.
Sometimes I wonder if I'm just getting to be an old curmudgeony gently caress when I go on rants about my distrust of The Cloud as a concept and how I don't "pay for air."

I might still be wrong, but I see stuff like this and I just nod.

“Anything from those films that is available is, like, 1990s Telecine things, which is the best that we had… compared now, they look bloody awful,” Jackson told the podcast. “I just haven’t re-released them because, if I do, I want them to look really good. We’ve actually done some experiments. They look bloody fantastic. They look like they’re shot on 35mm.”

Do the original negatives not exist anymore or something?! Or is he talking specifically about Bad Taste being in 16mm?

Meet the Feebles isn't all that hot, but I'm excited to see it in a quality that's above a 10th generation bootleg.

The original Star Wars trilogy would (will) sell like gangbusters because Disney will tell the public that they need to have the original trilogy in their collection.

For an assessment a few years ago, a class of 16 year-olds I taught had to analyse a scene from a film, so I used Citizen Kane and the breakfast table montage. It was fascinating to watch, because I started with about 25 or 26 kids all bitching and moaning about watching a "movie that's old and gay and not even in colour" to a room full of kids absorbed by the film, and then seeing them all go "oh come ON!" at the end.
For all of its accolades and clout and reputation as being the greatest (American) film of all time, scholars and critics and the like never seem to point out that Citizen Kane is also entertaining as gently caress.

Anyone who would prefer to watch Lord of the Rings instead of any pre-Lord of the Rings Peter Jackson movie is a boring square.
Funny enough Jackson always preferred the shorter American cuts of his earlier films.

But I do hope we get the full NZ cut of Dead Alive when those 4K remasters roll in, though.

I went to Fry's for the first time a month or two back and was surprised how sizable and varied their home video collection was in 2018, right down to the giant novelty Hershel Gordon Lewis Blu-ray box set sitting there on the shelf. Bought a copy of the Arrow Video release of Brain Damage. Respect.

People poo poo on Eli Roth and it feels justified most of the time, but he got those cannibals high by the main characters stuffing their weed stash into their friend's bloated corpse before it got cooked and that's the kind of stupid loving bullshit I'm 100% into.

But they've only announced an R-rated cut so far. I'm gonna hold my breath until they confirm the fully uncut version (which I'm assuming they will, but still).
