Go Zombie Michael, Go!

Okay enough Friday the 13th homage titles. If you have not listened to the band Dead Can Dance, do so. Anyways its time for more horror films, as I have fallen into the old habit of viewing them every year. Plus writing reviews, which I plan to do much faster this time. My public library (three separate branches in town) has enough to get me started, and I am finally making the switch to Blu Ray after years of slumming it with DVD’s.

MonsterVision Lives


last-drive-in-joe-bob-briggs-e1529942979473-530x278

Those poor kids today have no idea what it was like to have to use cable and local TV to see many cult films that never came to their area. Or enjoy drive in’s, something I have never been fortunate to expirence. Well for us who were around for the 1990s Joe Bob Briggs was the guide to numerous low budget cult classics every week on TNT’s MonsterVision. Even though there were commercials and some questionable footage had to be cut (often for time) there were also Drive-In totals, great trivia bits, and Briggs’ snappy commentary.

So when years after TNT axed MonsterVision, all of us fans were excited to hear that the streaming service Shudder had convinced Briggs to do one last (hopefully not) Drive In marathon show. Fittingly called The Last Drive-In, this was to be a 24 hour marathon hosted on Shudder from Friday night to Saturday night. This was a great idea, one that would allow us fans to also comment on Twitter during the marathon. In fact, I wrote this while enjoying one of the films shown, the freaky 1987 classic Hellraiser. Plus getting retweeted by Briggs on Twitter in real time is cool, a nice byproduct of social media.

Despite some issues with my Roku player and the Shudder app (something everyone else experienced) this was a success. Clearly the fans of Briggs still heavily exist, and the “Hey we broke Shudder” jokes were amusing despite having to deal with streaming issues. However it was all worth it, just to see Joe Bob Briggs on TV doing his thing all over again. I am glad that Ted Turner and overworked servers could not stop JBB from doing what he does best: introduce us to fun and interesting cinema. Joe Bob Briggs forever, indeed.

End Of An Era, Long Live RT, Yada Yada…


This is overdue, but I am posting about it, anyways. Months ago, Rotten Tomatoes decided, just like IMDB.com did, to kill off their message boards. However unlike IMDB, RT decided not to warn the users, and closed the boards for good, making it impossible for users to recover anything they wanted to save. I keep forgetting to make backups of certain things I want to save or preserve, and every time I regret doing so. This is not why I am angry, though-no, I am upset that after years of giving the site eyeball traffic along with others, RT decided to can a feature that is responsible for them existing in the first place. Too bad, since I think the forums were experiencing sort of a resurgence, and people still posted there, although I will admit things were never the same after 2011 or 2012, I guess. Maybe it was time. I have been a member of numerous sites, and I always departed before they went under, although there were a few that I hung around at long after someone turned off the lights. No apology has been posted, and I feel worse for the user mods, several of whom I am friends with on Facebook. They should have at least received something for their troubles, or some kind of heads up, but the RT higher ups, probably embarrassed by some high profile incidents (thanks insane DC fanboys for making things worse, not better-and yes I blame you, too) that occurred on the site, although those were not related to the actual forums themselves, decided to call it quits. There were some good jokes made in OT that the forums were the dark side of the site, chained up in the basement, hidden from view, which was not wrong considering that RT made it hard to find the forum link around 2008, or 2009.

Goodbye, RT OT. The political and sports talk were always fun, and I have good memories of posting during election time, when things were at their most heated and active. Goodbye, both RT chats, although the OT one was held off site and is still around, while GD’s was at its height when Yahoo hosted it until late 2007, or 2008-I do not recall. I managed to get booted from the OT one a bunch of times, for various reasons or another, heh. The Yahoo one had live cams, which was really cool, and ended up pulling users from different groups. Farewell, GD: Oscar season when Crash won is one of the site’s highlights, a real moment in time. I still have not seen that movie, and I probably never will. All of the neat thread groups departed to different sites, all which I post on, and maybe this is just another downside to the Internet: the fragmenting of people, divided up into sections and groups. There are different streaming services, different social media (Facebook and Twitter have literally killed the message boards, for better, or for worse), multiple entertainment options. A lot of memories, all gone forever, lost in time, quote that overused classic Blade Runner line, or the Children of Men one about the last one left turning out the light,  auf wiedersehen even though I will never seen the site again.

I wish I could be really petty, yet I still follow RT on their twitter feed, mostly to lob meaningless “Bring back the forums” posts at them, a David throwing Internet stones at a Goliath that never cared in the first place. 20,000 some posts, well almost 21k, never to be recovered, along with everything else. Perhaps that is for the best, and there have been jokes about how now that RT’s forums are gone (the site still lives, of course, not that I care too much) they can run for office now, although I doubt anyone worried about that sort of thing. Thus ends a journey that began in 2003, and I imagine that my old posts were really awful, so hooray for them no longer existing, although knowing the Internet nothing is ever really gone, a fact that Donald Trump and others keep forgetting. On to the next phase, whatever that is; I myself hope for virtual reality, or space travel. Both would be nice. MadMan_731/MadMan (the site let me drop the numbers later on)/MadMan_7 and TheOmegaMan71 (aliases), signing out, for good.

Long Live Old Media


Image result for compact disc funny

Maybe its because I am 32 and thus recall the previous days of my youth, but I still often purchase physical media. I like having something that does not rely on a computer, or a phone, or the Internet, especially considering that Net Neutrality is under attack and many video rental stores have closed shop. So upon hearing that Best Buy and Target are going to eliminate compact discs (CD’s), I was bummed, yet not surprised. After all, they were they type of 1990’s fad that had at first slowly, then quickly, go out of fashion. The musical industry after years of fighting the Internet embraced the digital world, as have many customers, even myself included. Although I do not have a computer, so this means I have still not fully switched to digital music, although I would still want to back up anything I own via some type of Cloud storage.

That said, owning physical copies of movies is still a good idea, as there are way too many streaming services and some movies have yet to be transferred to even DVD, much less Blu ray or 4K HD. I recently skimmed an piece making a good argument for hanging on to your movies, although even I have sold many films I own over the past two years due to lack of storage area and because I prize my Criterion collection over most, if not all, of what I own. I still got rid of some my Criterions, anyways, since those are worth money and I had no use for them. Maybe one day all of us will be able to not have to still own some type of physical media, or all of us will be paying storage garages to keep all this extra nonsense we own. As for me, I still take full advantage of my local library, RedBox, and Family Video, which refuses to die off, yet, for which I am oddly grateful.

The Greatest Bowl of Them All: Super Bowl LII


This column should just be called “Tom Brady is back. Again. SIGH.” The NFL has a long history of quarterbacks leading dynasties, from Sammy Baugh to Otto Graham and Johnny Unitas, Bart Starr and Roger Staubach, to Terry Bradshaw, Joe Montana and Troy Aikman, and now Tom Brady. No matter what, the success and the blame every season is aimed at the quarterback. The Browns went 0-16 because they lack a franchise QB, and well, talent. Meanwhile the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles are complete teams, and it really sucks that Carson Wentz is injured, although hurray for Nick Foles getting a shot to shine, again.

Look its Brady at the helm, again, and as long as he is playing, the Pats have a shot at winning. Again. Death, taxes, and Tom Brady in the Super Bowl are three regular events, even if Brady is old, and even if the refs and good old luck also helped get him there. Meanwhile the Eagles got here not only because of Foles and a good solid run game, but because of their defense. However, the Pats defense is pretty good in its own right, and I feel the two units off set each other. Also the Pats have solid backs, and Brandin Cooks might be the best wideout out of the two squads. Alshon Jeffery is pretty darn good himself, and Bears fans have to feel a bit upset their franchise did not retain him.

What also is interesting about both teams is each has a tight end that is highly important to their squads. Rob Gronkowski is often Brady’s safety blanket, while Zach Ertz is (no longer) quietly one of the best in the league. I think that Ertz will give the Pats some trouble on Sunday, yet it is Corey Clement that is a key X factor for the Eagles. Danny Amendola is my X factor for the Pats, as he is a good possession receiver who teams often overlook. What should worry Eagles fans is that the Pats play largely mistake free football, and they always believe they have a chance to win. I have to go with the more experienced squad.

Patriots 23, Eagles 20. Stephen Gostkowski kicks the game winning field goal, and everyone depairs. I hope I am wrong.

I agree, Grumpy Cat. I agree.

Horrorfest 2017 Presents: A Cure For Wellness (2016, Gore Verbinski )


Maybe I would have liked this movie better if a different lead actor had been choose, seeing as this is the second movie where I have found Dane DeHaan to be incredibly dull (the other film being the insanely mediocre Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets from 2017). Or if the film had not featured Jason Isaacs sporting a really awful German accent-at least I think it was German. I don’t really care. However this movie has some gorgeous visuals, rather nice creepy moments, and Mia Goth was really good as Hannah, the mysterious girl that DeHaan’s Lockhart keeps running into. Sadly one of the major twists was revealed in one of the film’s trailers, so thanks Hollywood, and I kind of guessed one of the other twists, so perhaps giving this film points for its mysterious elements is a bad exercise. Despite being frustrated with some of its aspects, I do not find A Cure For Wellness to be a poor film, just one that could have been more properly executed. Unfortunately my Horrorfests always have that one movie, or multiple movies, that are a mixed bag. I could not resist a trick or treat pun in here somewhere.

I will say the castle spa treatment facility was really awesome, and I think that Verbinski was going for a Mario Bava, surrealistic type of film that maybe would have worked better decades ago. Verbinski has talent, yet he is often prone to abusing the willingness of Hollywood executives to give him free rein, not to mention sizable budgets. Sometimes, in the case of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, it works. Other times, such as A Cure For Wellness, not so much. Oh well. I do hope that Goth receives more acting opportunities, and perhaps some day I will enjoy a DeHaan performance, although I sincerely doubt that will happen anytime soon.
