    Back again to tell you guys about a few rippin good flicks.

    Socky, and I quote, said:
    There are some movies that are such a pure delight that it's like a sunshine being cast down to bring joy to the world.

    Well I stumbled upon Survive Style 5+ ,those crazy Japanese holy crap what a ray of frantic wonder, humor, gore, joy, and sorrow. I don't see how they did it. Starts out with a hit man hired to kill a man's wife yet....she won't stay dead;she keeps coming back !She even cooked him an enormous breakfast, 20 eggs, talking, roast, ribs, salads, massive bowl of shrimp fried rice talking Vegas Buffet, the stunned hit man finishes in a flurry of speed eating, lights a cigs, reached for his coffee cup which not-so-dead gal takes, lovingly, puts five teaspoons of sugar in it, stirs slowly, he downs it, kicks back, sees her on the table where she kicks his chin so hard he went flying 20 feet, then she beats the fuck out of him--he kills, buries, she comes back and meanwhile we got three punks robbing houses in a VW van, an arrogant hypnotist who's live shows are a riot of wonky japanese humor---he pulls his chest hair out and flings it to the screaming crowd.
    So he picks an average working man out of the audience with loving wife, son, teenage daughter. Hypno's into the guy thinking he's a bird. It worked....then comes, on stage in front of bout a thousand people in for the show, Vinnie-fucking -Jones who was hired by the hypnotist's girl fuck toy who thinks up commercials ( and WHAT commercials they are !). He made fun of her so she hired Vinnie and had him killed. On stage. But the poor fuck still think he's a bird....Meanwhile we're on our 5...6? try for this hitman to kill this woman ( who is so so smokin' hot) but she will. Not. Die. Can you guess why?

    I highly recommend this film. It is so much fun and all people in the movie are connected in some way. Good movie to watch twice. Plus it is hysterical, like a roller coaster ride of mega twists and deep drops.

    But yes, please remember, this is a japanese film and you may go How idiotic ! Dammit Tyree ! I want my time back and my money !

    2018. How did The Perfection slip past me. Huh ? Just wow. What a film. I urge slipping a tad of Vodka in your kids Cherry Coke and watch this amazing movie.

    Last: Eli Took me where I least expected it to. Very high rating from me. All of them deserve A-ish marks.

    Tyree, glad you liked One Cut of the Dead!

    Survive Style 5+ sounds bonkers. I’m putting it on my list to track down. I also enjoyed The Perfection, but it took awhile for it to simmer in my brain for me to really like it. It helps once you realize the Director was trying to make a movie in the vein of a South Korean revenge flick akin to Oldboy.

    How did Hounds of Love turn out. Recently picked it up on Blu-ray but haven’t had a chance to sit down with it.

    Oh right. Hounds of Love Shit. Sorry man, I forgot to finish it. Now I can't even remember fuck all about it. Really sorry-I am a worthless idiot when I have to take a benzoid, Sockster. Where's my wallet...

    But ! You have got to see Crown Vic. It ain't no Training Day but it is a great cop flick, man. Plus, Crown Vic's, one of the best cars Ford made, deputies love em...
    Paraphrasing the seasoned, cynical cop: People sleep safe and snug in their beds because they know there are men like us out here doing violence on they're behalf...and they hate us for it.
    Great great line.
    Highly recommended. Better than Evenhand...

    Oh Sock Monkey, I meant to tell you, you know your shit. Yea, The Perfection looked nearly identical
    in my humble opinion, to a Miike film. I know he didn't direct Old Boy but it has an asian feel to it.

    Watched a slow, slow burn of a movie that by the end you are nearly bonkers as much as the actress Tianna Nori who killed it in The Sublet. Now there is really nothing new. However, the camera work and directing will have you claustrophobic, feeling you missed something and it bothers you, and the stairs looks like a MC Escher nightmare. Plus, like I said, Nori is amazing. Some will find this boring. I didn't. You pretty much know how this film will end but all the same it is shocking and tragic because you really feel for Nori's character who drinks a ton of coffee but the sugar was left there when they arrived. I'm going STOP USING THAT SUGAR, GIRL !
    There is also a mindfuck of a scene where two cops barge in saying they need to question here about a missing person case. She goes who's missing. They say her name. She loses it, yelling at the cops I'm right HERE ! then one cops says your family claims they haven't heard from you in a month. She says I called me sister yesterday...
    ...but did she ? She also has a year old baby who is vital to the film, also her fiance is an asshole actor.
    Furniture gets moved back to where it was after she moved it the way she wanted it, she scratched the floor, then ran to her crying baby hitting a chair with her leg which left a cut. This reminded me of Burnt Offerings a bit as the place seems alive, toss in Rosemary's Baby maybe...

    As far as director inspiration, Miike hits the nail on the head. The levels of violence in The Perfection definitely owe a nod of the cap to Mr. Miike. Speaking of Miike, I need to track down his newest, First Love. I've heard good things.

    God I love you Socky. Had no idea Miike had a new one. First Love is it ? Cool. See if it's streaming or if my raise your bill higher then knock off channels you have been paying for for years Charter. For no reason. I need to call. Screaming, righteous indignation spittle flying, it actually works ! Get a new offer.

    Also, be nice if you'd be able to attend, hell be nice if I could join you, for next year's festival. We'd have fun, kick the wives loose for a bit. Maybe see a concert at that bike shop too, get a break from film watching. Plus my wife could talk the balls off a rhino---they'd have fun...

    Okay. First I would like to tell you guys I relived a viewing of one of Christopher Walken's best films: Suicide Kings, from '97 I believe. Man I had forgot how great this film was. Pitch perfect ensemble cast, Leary was hysterical with his stingray boots, the kid from Roseanne I've always felt was totally underrated. I saw him in a film where he played a psycho ? Man he was brilliant. Johnny Gilaki ? Sorry about the spelling. Anyway, I am sure you all have seen this but if'n you have not ? Oh please see it. It is so much fun. Walken spends 80% of the film tied to a chair, all he used was his facial expressions and he was so spot on about the kidnappers near the end...or was he ...?
    A

    The Redeeming. Only half-ass decent thing about this film, about a woman alone in a storm who answers the door to a 19-year old kid, was it had me fooled. Other than that, skip.
    D


    The Boys 1998 Australia
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0139898/

    Brett Sprague is a violent and psychopathic man, who is released on parole after serving a sentence for assault. As he returns to his family house and we watch him and his brothers, Stevie and Glenn, for the next 24 hours, it becomes clear this day will not end well.

    —Anonymous


    Also of note on this ripping, helluva brutal, realistic, excellent Aussie offering is one IMDB reviewer said it's the best Aussy film along with Chopper and The Club.
    And apologies for another not-so-new comment on a film. I had never heard of it and it looked terrific. Kind of like the daddy of 2010's stunning Animal Kingdom.
    Getting back to the Chopper and The Club films I do believe I have seen Chopper. In fact, I think it is in an external hard drive and may watch it again. Hang on a sec. gang, lemme see if I can find The Club's imdb as I have no clue about this one.
    Ah ! A Bruce Beresford film, from 1980. Man could kick out some gems.
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080546/

    Needless to say, The Boys , if you have not already, needs to be seen. Highly recommended.


    Now here is a real find in my humble opinion: Home With A View Of The Monster
    Great little title and a gem of a film. Finally an original, well directed, edited,( editing was key to this film), and even some rare hinky sound issues couldn't take away the fact this was a hoot. Nice surprises, zigged when you thought it would zag. Just a real pleasure to partake of.
    A-

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7825558/

    IMDB:
    "Dennis and Rita arrive home to a series of mysterious events."

    Couldn't have said it better ! Really, I do not wish to spoil anything and I know most of us love going into a movie blind. Hell, I do that with books sometimes if it's a new writer. How I found Gillian Flynn and that killer blurb from
    Mr. Stephen King sealed the deal. Had no clue what Sharp Objects was about. One of my favorite books but I digress...

    1917. Meh. I like Mendes a lot but I really cannot see what all the hoopla is all about for another, pretty much, Saving Private Ryan. Men trying to survive incredible bouts of heroism and horror to deliver a message. Instead of You're coming home, Son, it's don't bloody DO IT! I mean, yeah, it was good but I was shocked, not surprised, but shocked I actually still sat through after Gervais and watched The Golden Globes and the only reason for that head hanging in shame confession was to see if, by some miracle Parasite a far far superior, original fighter of a film then any of the other's in the ring, imho, would actually win. I am a dadgum idiot. Maybe Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars. Surely if there's a heaven above, let it win that.
    B+

    Bombshell

    "A group of women take on Fox News head Roger Ailes and the toxic atmosphere he presided over at the network."
    ---imdb
    Well, I avoid movies like this as one would a five dollar crack whore-- women being sexually manipulated by the antichrist's uncle but there ya go. I prefer to avoid them, same with children...especially with children being abused but I had heard great things about Theron's performance. BTW, did this film even make it in to any theaters ( never saw one trailer ) or was it strictly an on-demand if you're into this twisted shit thang. Theron WAS great as the rest of the cast but I am not lying to you good people: I have NO clue really as to why I watched this so I have no clue as to any type of rating.
    All I know is I hated it, was depressing, degrading which I am being lame stating the obvious which I excel at but one thing---it was nice to see that asshole exposed.

    Oh, and Sock Monkey ? I need to go back and reread your blisteringly enjoyable reviews, comments and films you saw as to if I have any of them. I apologise but I will check, okay good sir ?

    Oh! I got 15 minutes in to...Ad Astra, ad water to fill line, microwave for five minutes, then ad packet of asian chili sauce, stir...? Was that it ? Brad Pitt ( who was good in Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood--terrific film ) Tommy Lee, Sutherland and went "I can tell this is going to suck canal water." So sorry, guys, didn't finish it and again, I have done that with books, too. Get halfway done, put it down because you. Just. Know. There will never be any saving, redeeming sentence, no wild surprising twist plus, if the person cannot write, well out goes the mo fo. Life's way too short.

    Thanks, fellas, Dan ! As always it has been ever so ever ! Thanks for letting me spout off with unimaginative reviews and I hope it helps a bit, keeping you from pigs in a poke.
    And please, feel free to rip me a new one if I recommended a film you hated.

    Hasta Winnebago !

    We'll meet up again when I get a few more under my belt - MOVIES ! - and check Socky's hard work. I have four external drives that may contain a film or two from the festival and why did I just repeat myself. Echo in here ?
    Just a warning.

    Recently saw Bad Boys For Life, Gemini Man, and the latest Terminator film. Gemini Man was by far the best of the three.

    You're welcome. Not where near as in depth as you and Keith get.

    Also thought the first episode of Picard was pretty good.

    Nothing wrong with reviews that are short and sweet!

    I haven't checked out Picard yet. I've heard mixed things, but Patrick Stewart is just a great actor in general that it's at least worth a watch to see him.

    I like to take chances on movies. I like to track down little known or under-seen films, hoping to stumble across something special. Sometimes gems are found, sometimes they are not. Let me tell you about one of each.

    The Untamed (2016):

    Alejandra is alone. Though married with two children, her children give her no release from her loneliness, neither does her marriage. She doesn’t realize how alone until she meets Veronica, a young nurse who wants to show her something that lives in an old cabin in the woods.

    I write a lot of reviews with the words “this won’t be for everyone”. This one is definitely no exception. The Untamed mixes familial drama, commentary on sexuality, and Lovecraftian alien sex (yes, you read that right) to deliver an interesting meditation on the power of lust and how the urge to satiate those desires can both liberate and destroy the ones that seek it and those they love.

    If graphic sexuality is not your bag, you’d probably want to steer clear, but if that sort of thing doesn’t bother you, then The Untamed delivers some interesting morsels to chew on.

    Grade: B+


    Kolobos (1999):

    I would’ve had a better idea of what I was in for if I had watched the trailer first. If I had, I would have been treated to a wonderfully '90s voice-over delivering with deadly seriousness the tagline: “When you’re dead…no one can hear you scream”. I just…I don’t know, guys.

    To be fair, if I had caught this on cable late at night back when it first came out in 1999, I would probably would have some misplaced nostalgia for the movie. It has some interesting ideas at play with a combination reality television and the SAW franchise, it unfortunately can’t build those stray ideas into something more compelling.

    Essentially, five young people respond to an ad to star in a reality show to be filmed in a remote house. Once there, they found out that not everything is as it seems and they begin getting picked off one by one.

    The practical gore effects are okay for the low budget nature of the film and there is some tension in some sequences, unfortunately the dialogue and acting make this a rather rough watch. And by the time the movie reveals all its secrets, one wonders why they might have bothered at all.

    There is some low budget charm here and this might play better with a group of friends and large amount of booze, but it didn’t quite work for me.
    If you like the idea of the premise, check out 2002’s My Little Eye for a better take (and a very early role for Mr. Bradley Cooper)

    Grade: D

    Tyree, I am right with you about Parasite. I do think that it will wind up winning Foreign Language Film at the Oscars, though it should be Best Picture hands down.

    And we seem to be on some kind of same wavelength because I was just thinking about Suicide Kings the other day. This was a regular rental for me and my college roommate back in the day and we absolutely loved it. I need to track it down on DVD or Blu-Ray to see if it holds up to my memories of it. I remember Henry Thomas and Christopher Walken being great in it.

    I never really considered myself a Trekkie but I watched The Next Generation pretty religiously back in the day. And I agree that Stewart is a very good actor.

    Stewart was also terrific in the episode of Extras we were graced with.

    Socky, I've seen The Untamed and oh yea buddy, the sex scenes comand your attention that is for-damned-sure spot on. I liked it a lot, would have given it your rating if not maybe even an A-


    Ok, this is a first. I actually had to stop watching a film because I started freaking out and also maybe you guys have some answers. Back in 2008 a spiffy little 10 minute horror short came out called " There Are Monsters ",
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1596761/

    and, possibly, my memory is horrible, around that time learned Mike Flannagen bought
    Kealan's creepy-as-fuck "Peekers" and was going to make a full length feature film from the insanely scary short film, a film close to this board's heart.I have to apologize for my timeline
    here as I honestly am taking a stab in the dark with it.
    Now, the film I just lifted my skirt and ran away from to come here and hide is 2013's
    There Are Monsters an extremely paranoia inducing film with the creepy factor's amp cranked up to 11. Yes, based on the 2008 short film and even has the crazy good grocery store scene but ramped up sky high this go-round...

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2977158/
    However, this has, so far, had such a "Peekers" feel that I am wondering just what the hell is going on ? I mean, I just came here after seeing, ala "Peekers" the news turned on to empty seats. Bigger than shit I bet you some creeped out looking news guy will kinda float
    into the camera just staring.
    Anyway, heading back in, pray for me. I'll come back and review it, I have around 53 minutes left.
    Thanks, guys.

    The Lighthouse:

    The plot of The Lighthouse is simple: Two men--an old lighthouse keeper and his younger assistant--take an assignment in a remote lighthouse where loneliness and madness await. But it is the execution that changes everything. It almost feels that director Robert Eggers stepped back from his previous film The Witch and decided that it was way to accessible for mainstream audiences. Shot in black and white with a long-abandoned aspect ratio, Eggers doubles down on his time-appropriate dialogue and lets both Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe let loose with two fantastic performances. While the characters are battered psychologically by each other and their pasts as much as the titular lighthouse is by the raging storm that engulfs the rocky patch of land the two men temporarily call home, it is the calm moments, the slight breaks in the storm of insanity that provide the most chilling effects.

    Though more Art-house movie than straight Horror fare, Eggers does populate his film with enough glimpses of the horrific to keep viewers guessing and engages. Those looking for tidy answers or easily explained twists need to look elsewhere as this is far more David Lynch than Wes Craven.

    I really want to see The Lighthouse, but think it's a movie to watch when my wife isn't around. I should have watched it last week when she was gone. Dammit.

    I saw the movie 1917 on Monday. I thought this movie was very good, it kept my attention and didn't make me wonder when the movie was going to end. The open ended start and ending were interesting.

    Sorry it took a bit, Guys. And yes, I liked 1917 also but seems not as much as most folks.
    Mistake #1: Watching it with your spouse.
    Mistake # 2: Not watching it again.
    Mistake # 3 Not eliminating # 2 and will remedy that before week's end.

    But,sadly, I did jump right back in and finished There Are Monsters, which really got to me, those wide, impossible grins. However, the film seemed to lose its subtle build of that vital factor. Also, it seemed to lose it's quiet, subtle grip like a rookie pole dancer sliding to the floor minus all that it had going on so well. Seemed rushed, hokie, fell right into a sloshy retread of other end of the world grabs by replicants... what happened to the "twin" plotline (?), lost track of...
    ...was like Hey guys ? Was not this was a documentary type thang, one camera, sound girl then in come the cells to film when shit gets happening, way too rushed IMHO that the first 40 minutes or did so well, like, say, the kid with hair-topped half a vagina and a kidney in his lunch box for school...?
    Too bad. Of course the moods, locations and whatnots we are in when we view films vary so, well, I could have started in a very hyper-aware sense of paranoia, possible glee of maybe finding a real memorable deeply buried stinger that slipped under my radar.
    I should have just watched "Peekers" again. Now that is a helluva gem that gives the viewer trouble getting it pulled out of their skin.

    B-

    (Note: For a proper, scary, paranoia inducing chiller, I, off hand, just now thought of is the sleeper Dawning, just, I don't really know why that particular movie came to mind...
    ...carry on... )

    Real quick:
    I found a copy of Robert Aldrich's early, '71, Depression Era tommy gun's a blazing gangster film The Grissom Gang . Spoiled, rich daddykins young lady Kim Darby is kidnapped. The crazy-good-as-always Scott Wilson ( show of hands: who did not cry at the end of The Ninth Configuration), plays the youngest of the Grissom clan as a dim, possible gashuffer of a kid who loves his Momma and his switchblade; a child/man who falls in love with Darby at first sight.
    I swear, sorry to beat a dead tired cliche' to death but this film, plot centered in a Hollywood Kansas City backlot for city scenes really DID make you feel in dire need of a shower as every actor was beaded non-stop with sweat. Great cast, funny, violent script - the clan's answer to anyone who posed a threat, even the most inane threat, was dealt with the hand stitched motto KILL KILL KILL.
    A lot of fun.
    Wilson's and Darby's "Love Nest" was a riotest tacky acid trip, like a 60's Vegas hotel room.
    Robert Lansing was his usual cool self and, for old farts like me, where the name Ralph Waite is not a head scratcher, I recommend maybe watching this again or, for you lucky youngsters out there, I honestly think you too would get a kick out of The Grissom Gang.
    Obviously the violence is no The Irishman in the effects department we are now all so used to--- film itself would land a pg rating these days -- but, like I said, a very fun sweaty ride.
    Don't forget to pack a heater ! and remember, this is not Scarface.

    I also cannot, again recall, if I mentioned this, but if there are any percussionists in C.D. land know what is really a hoot?
    Watch Whiplash ( again, perhaps if you dug it a lot ) then for a double bill see if you are able to find and watch a 2010, gosh...nordic/danish/swiss...? film called -
    Sound Of Noise

    IMDB:
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1278449/

    "The narrative revolves around police officer Amadeus Warnebring, tone-deaf scion of a distinguished musical family, and his attempts to track down a group of six guerilla percussionists whose anarchic public performances are terrorizing the city. The drumming set pieces correspond to an avant-garde score with four hilariously titled movements. Where the short involved the six drummers imaginatively using standard apartment furnishings as their instruments, the feature unleashes them on an unspecified city's civic and cultural institutions. Including an amusing backstory for each of the soberly dressed drummers as well as their nemesis, music-hating investigator Warnebring, the film creates a treat for the eyes and ears from the dull, repetitive sounds of everyday life."

    I fell heads shaking, lips muttering Tyree has done finally went clean around the bend.
    Well. Yeah. And to be quite frank...

    ...however, I started watching this and ended up really admiring the film's originality, zany "terrorism" plot, of beat bombing a large city with art as the group, a pretty girl, a handful of mad, disgruntled drummers, sees fit to disrupt and try for moments to get rid of force-fed
    "Shitty Music".
    Large heavy dykes work well, for starters.
    I found it quite funny, we, as well as the girl he's hunting down who's pain for the disorder the detective suffers from is very touching, and I feel leads her to loving him all the more--Silence is golden they say and it fits here)...we as viewers feel horrible for the lead actor, a truly TRULY tone deaf (bleeding ears at its most horrific ? Can that happen ?) human being. Smashing a guitar, cannot sit through a child's recital, his own conductor of a brother's concert etc (which, btw, is percussion pipe bombed in a way you have to see to believe.)
    He is a terrorist detective who falls for the girl he is in charge of locating. A charming romance which we know could never fully blossom which makes the film all the better.
    By no means is it a musical. Oh lord no. More anti-musical, comparing Mozart to The Butthole Surfers. ( I like both, hairball that I am ) But I did find it funny to very funny, dramatic, bit of suspense sprinkled in but a more well crafted, directed fantasy movie-making effort than anything else, just winging the film off the top of my head, shooting the shit about Sound Of Noise as thoughts form.

    A-Sound Of Noise

    Oh, and the answer is "no" if I have seen the original short film Sound Of Noise is based on.
    I'll check and see if YouTube has it.

    Thanks for letting me share.

    Oh. After watching the terrific Home With a View Of The Monster
    I looked in to the Greenlee Brothers work at Homefront Pictures as I had done with Zack Parker's ( Proxy ) Along The Tracks Production and found some interesting titles of short films from Homefront and the Greenlee Brothers you guys,
    if you have a bit of time, may like to check out.

    Also, speaking of short films I watched a very good one called The Neighbor's Window, a film to make one be thankful for what you have, and not assume anything.
    Very good short.
