    Socky ! You gotta see Outlaws Get No Funerals It is not what you think it is going to be. Grade A. It is a smart crime film with an ending that will knock you for a loop.

    Also: Insomnium Great buddy flick, I mean these guys talk to each other the way me, NJ and Danny talk to each other, those raging queens. Original plot and creepy ending. B-

    Yea, man, see Sweet VA pronto. Very cool. Great characters, great script. You kinda hate for the ending to happen the way it does...

    I am not familiar with this and can offer no insight.

    I will say I watched Bad Times at the El Royal and it is a real fun and strange movie!

    O man sorry bunch of movies last month or so. Just horrific. Titles escape me they were that fucking great. So know what ?
    I went on a Richard Bates Jr. binge. This guy is the shit. Seriously good, funny horror films from the astonishing Trash Fire to Suburban Gothic, the gut-wrenching Excision and his latest did not even lower his bar an inch: Tone-Deaf is stunning. High marks for all.
    Socky, did Bates have anything at the festival ? Probably would have been Tone-Deaf...
    Also, did my man Zack Parker have an offering ?

    Oh right. I watched the remake of Fingers. I dug it. A Lot. B+

    I've only seen Trash Fire and I remember finding it very interesting. I have yet to check out his other films though I really need to take the time to do so. He was recently on the podcast Shock Waves and he came off as a thoughtful and interesting guy. And no, nothing by Bates is playing at the festival so far this year. I also didn't see anything from Parker.

    Hey Sock Monkey. My f(r)iend, see Tone Deaf and Excision. Best work I have seen are from women playing roles of troubles mothers. Hence Tracy Lords turns in her best work ever in Excision, hands down. Tracy made me weep a tear. Let the making fun of begin.
    But both are very funny.Very gory. Patrick was great especially when he scolds us...
    However, if you hate both, forgive me yet get get get, if you have not already, Sweet Virginia.
    That way lesson your anger toward me for wasting 3 hours of your life. I will sell you, cheap,
    three hours of my own for you to do anything you wish with.



    Oh crap, sorry. Crissy Rock in Ken Loach's Ladybird Ladybird. A powerhouse film carried by an actress who, hands down gave the best female performance of that year, a true shocker, anger inducing film but anger delivered, no pun intended, to "Maggie", authorities, Maggie, social services, Maggie yet love for complete God-given grace that Jorge' heard her sing that night, then back to Maggie and her temper---a heck of a film, but not a film for everyone, a film that had me, Becky both yelling at the screen like little bitches.
    Please, if you have kids, I would say avoid...

    K.
    Orphans 1998, Peter Mullen wrote, directed this film, which show Mullen is one of the finest directors ever. I had never seen or heard of this film yet am lucky enough to have a legal UK web page where I can get my wife's favorite tea time quiz show, TV aired films to, well, pretty much anything that has already been broadcast on the tube to our friends across the pond and
    most of Europe.
    See this fooka. Ask politely, buy, borrow, steal, beg but please try and see it. Be warned, I had mentally AMA'd out of The Death Star, avoided The Clockwork Orange, grabbed a cab and got the heck out of Glasgow for just bit--- I had the cab waiting and went right back up after the two Ken Loach films...

    ( I am totally joking so dammit no offense, but do the Scottish have/use an actual.. um...official language...? I know, I know, Dear sweet god I do not want to piss off any Glaswegians--- I love them and never had, once I settle in for five minutes or so, any problems as I pick it up Gal-speak fast. So cheers you lovable, violet, passionate human beings. Don't kill me, I am Irish ...or does that make things worse)

    Best black comedy, Orphans, I have seen in long long time. Near perfection of a black, bleak bad-ass script and brutally dark Scottish humor. Mullan is The Man.
    You do so very much regret the wild amount of scenes you uncomfortably chuckle through as they have soon very serious consequences but yet you already KNOW that.

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119842/
    Please do not read the top description, just some reviews/opinions...

    Watched Neds: Terrific !

    Had already seen Mullan's The Magdalene Sisters. Watch it tonight with The Wife. Really not surprised not everyone knows of the horror The Church put these poor girls through early 60s. I mean, my favorite writer Ken Bruen had a Jack Taylor novel fooks sake. But hey, these are just kids doing their best at IMDB. And I will never ever fault anyone who is trying to give, as entitled to, opinions.

    I won't grade these. I just really enjoyed them all and am now going to get The Light House
    as it sounds interesting and these two will not be fighting over fucking a fish w/ a killer bod.
    Any poor soul sat through that one ?

    Apologies for the tangents and ramblings.

    Hasta ! and thanks again for your rundown of the Austin festival(s) I enjoyed playing catch-up with, Sock Monkey. Really grateful to you for your hard work on those films, and wetting our appetites.
    The bats. The BATS !

    Now lets find some more crime, Socky !
    Markus.

    I haven't been able to see Sweet Virginia yet. It doesn't seem to be streaming on any platform I have, so I'm going to pick up a dvd on my next Amazon order.

    I won't hold it against you if Excision and Tone Deaf aren't my jam. I'm always on the look out for new films (and books...and...) so all recommendations are welcome.

    I haven't seen The Lighthouse, though I do have it in my queue on Shudder under title Cold Skin. So many movies and so little time!

    Sockster ! Cold Skin is a different film. Check it out, Esse:

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1034385/

    The Lighthouse with Mullan and Butler seems more of a psychological slow burn, based on a true incident where Cold Skin is creature killing, nightly, and creature...well, no spoilers. I think I grabbed the latter off my UK TV website as Keepers but I could be wrong.

    I will be watching the Mullan/Butler film tonight.

    BTW, have you seen any of the films based on Ken Bruen's "Jack Taylor" novels or seen the film Blitz, also by Bruen ?
    I know how you like your crime films. Just thought I'd check tho kind of doubted it as I see you are also a California man, so
    proooooooooooooooobably don't have access to RTE or any Irish cable...right ?

    Peace, brotha and again, I really appreciate your thoughts/comments and reviews of the films from your trips to Austin. They rock, man.

    Recently watched Black Mountain Side on Amazon Prime. It' a good little horror movie. Not perfect but not a bad 90 minutes or so of your time:

    What happened to my reply ?

    Screw it:

    See Eat Me.

    A

    this one:

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4229864/

    Yea, this sucker is rough. Lead actress/ writer deserves an Oscar for acting and original screenplay while Davis gets one, acting, too in my tilt-a-whirl World. But this is a wild damned ride, like a late-night porn spree until...
    Something.
    Happens.
    My god I have never seen anything like this film before in my life. The rapist yanking a velcro'd back brace before he rapes a comatose woman is NOT FUNNY ! but it was....
    This film shows a lot about ourselves and country we do not want to fucking know.

    Hey guys, just a heads up Scott ( Out of the Furnace Cooper's new film Antlers will be with us shortly.
    Looks creepy, executive produced by del Toro among others, Nick Antosca known the wildest, goriest series of Channel Zero, "Butcher's Block" while treating, and handled the delicate subject of mental illness better then anyone I have seen.
    Plus is was a ton of fun !

    Keeping an eye our for Antlers.

    I just watched Cold Pursuit and loved it. I've always been a Liam Neeson fan since his role in Raimi's Dark Man. And Taken was fantastic. One of my all time favorite movies alongside The Big Lebowski and Roadhouse. Of course, not all Neeson movies are worth watching. The Commuter was just garbage, a complete waste of time. So I wasn't sure about this one, but it was fantastic. This movie felt a little like a distant cousin of Fargo and a half sibling of Snatch had a baby bent on revenge. There were more layers to this movie than I expected. Solid 4/5.

    Also watched about 40 minutes of the new Pet Sematary movie. GOD AWFUL. I laughed at the scene of Rachel's childhood trauma. I thought it was f**king hilarious. That's how empty this movie is. The acting is what killed it. Even John Lithgow bombed as Jud--he murdered a character I loved. I couldn't finish this version and I'd love to forget what I saw. 1/5 (I give it one star for the laugh I had at that stupid f**king dumb waiter scene)

    Watched IT CHAPTER II. The movie delivered on what I expected. For a three hour film, I found it engaging though I thought Chapter One resonated on a higher level. Also watched SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK. Now this one was a surprise. In a good way. Never read the books it is based on but I thought the movie was well worth my time. Yes, it had the usual jump scares (as did IT...) and if you have seen enough horror/thriller movies you know when these are about to happen and, for the most part, do not really make you jump. But as a fun popcorn eating time at the movies, I thought it worked quite well.

    Man I wished more folks joined in. Who doesn't watch movies or any decent tv series. Watching Black Lake, BBC4, think a Danish thriller series that seems pretty good so far...

    But a rarity occurred the other day--I watched a perfect movie: Dirt Road To Lafayette. Astonishing.Music was off the chart great. Strange, most of my favorite movies have music as a major plot component or one other thing: Chess. Yep, Searching For Bobby Fisher and The Dark Horse, two top tens.
