  • The Diabolical Dr. Z

    The Diabolical Dr. Z

    ★★★★

    Sometimes watching a Jess Franco film is like listening to my grandfather tell "his stories". I've heard all his favorites before - but I'm always happy relive them or hear how the details have changed. The Diabolical Dr. Z is such a prototypical Franco film in that regard.

    It's about a mad scientist who's shunned as an outcast from the scientific community after making his breakthrough. Dies. Then his daughter goes on a spree of revenge against those who shunned…

    Chopping Mall

    ★★★

    Not sure if you kids will understand this - but shopping malls were really important in the 80's. It's where we shopped at, ate at, played video games at, shoplifted at, bought our paint, sporting equipment, skateboards and guns at. The mall was like our Amazon dot com but we got to hang out there with our friends! Now we just sit at home... Alone... Clicking... Wondering where that smell is coming from... Shopping malls were really important! That's why…

    Memories of Murder

    ★★★★½

    An engaging crime thriller highlighting a South Korea serial killer investigation. I’m not surprised but also mystified how the intense pressure of putting a stop to something so heinous becomes so toxic.

    What I really liked about this film is that we don’t see the entire investigation from the beginning, we are dropped right into the frustration of the middle of it. They’ve exhausted their knowledge of how to successfully do their jobs and are now forcing suspects into their…

    I may look like a hardened criminal to you, but I really am innocent. And if you’re not going to help me clear my name, you can at least help me make all this marmalade.

    Yeh, it’s been one of those weeks - a two Paddington night! I didn’t realize the coffee sipping security guard was a running gag. I love this!

    I went in with the best of intentions. I "liked" each of the previous Jurassic Park films. I did not expect anything groundbreaking - just some dinosaur fun. That's all I really wanted - just some fun... I hated Jurassic World.

    I'm saying all of this below as soberly and as calmly as I can - I really wanted to like this movie - I really wanted to give it a better rating - but as I think about it…

    I'm so happy right now!

    You can't go back! Nostalgia is a trap!! Force Awakens was a fluke!! ... I know you are but what am I? ... AHHHH!!!

    I've been rooting for Paul Reubens for so long to get a chance at another movie!! I've read interviews where he said he had plans but they would always fall through... but he finally got it!! And he fucking nailed it!!!

    Pee-wee's commute to work! Pee-wee's still the breakfast king! All…
