    Ahhhhhh that sounds so scary!

    I enjoyed the movie, had creepy atmosohere, and the scenes of hell out hellraiser to shame. I'm very excited about a director's cut.

    And the first hellraiser has some hell raising imagery.

    I did a thing.

    I remember Law Abiding Citizen as "We really want you to root for this crazy revenge guy, but at the 11th hour, we had second thoughts."

    Also, Soldier isn't a sequel to anything, it just mentions a couple Blade Runner things as an easter egg. But yeah, Halloween 3 was just "What is even going on here?" and while I heard Port of Call... was a decent enough flick, the decision to slap that name on there was utterly confusing to everyone, including the guy who directed the first one. I mean seriously, did Nic Cage even jack off on some teenagers in the so called sequel?!?!

    At one point Nic Cage is hard up enough to get high that he stops two young twenty-somethings coming out of a club under false pretenses so that he can search them for drugs to confiscate. He finds a crack pipe in the girl's purse and starts asking "where's the rock?" in a really desperate way, prompting her to dig it out and light up and inhale and then blow the smoke right into his mouth. Which moves into making out and then the two of them fucking against his car in the lot they're in. Nic Cage spends the entire time asking her if her daddy molested her and what would her parents think if they could see her now, going out with no panties on. Her boyfriend tries to sneak off and Cage fires a shot into the air and tells him to stand there and watch while he fucks his girlfriend.

    So, uh, yeah. Port of Call is very much in keeping with the original Bad Lieutenant.

    It's even more amazing on screen. The sex is bizarrely entirely consensual. And the gun he's totting throughout the whole movie is this giant fucking handcannon. And I'm pretty sure the only time he ever actually fires it is in that scene. Into the air. And at the end of the film, he arrests the bad guys in a perfectly legal and lawful manner without killing anyone or any crazy violence. And somewhere in the middle there's a musical interlude while their are doing a stakeout with hallucinatory iguanas only he can see. It is everything you expect from a movie starring Cage and directed by Herzog.

    The film is a hoot. I should find my original review of the movie somewhere.

    And he only arrests the bad guys in a "perfectly legal and lawful manner" if you consider planting evidence you contrived into existence to be perfectly legal and lawful.

    It's consensual in so much as anything makes sense in that film.

    And sure he plants evidence on the guy, but he was guilty of the crime anyway and he brings him in alive and unharmed.

    I finally watched Earth Girls Are Easy. As a kid I always saw the VHS cover at the library and assumed it was horny as hell (and I wanted to see it because of this) but never did.

    It's pretty god damned horny, but I actually appreciated how weird it was. It's like half musical? For no reason? Neat

    Criterion spine #1016: Invention for Destruction

    Even seeing the other two Karel Zeman films Criterion has released didn't really prepare for the stylistic mastery of this one. Based on the Jules Verne novel Facing the Flag (which I'm unfamiliar with, though the Vernie-ness is unmistakable), this is a 1958 Czechoslovak fantasy film about a scientist kidnapped by pirates in order to develop a technologically advanced weapon. The power of the weapon is given more weight in a post-nuclear era, but it's a fairly light story with stock characters and lots of cool machines and places.

    But the focus is how the thing looks. Recalling the illustrations that would accompany printings of Verne's novels in the 19th century, the film is painstakingly crafted to recall a linear lithograph style. Zeman, chiefly an animator, incorporates cut-out and stop-motion animation, stylized sets and matte paintings, filters and camera effects---several in combination with each other, in order to make this monochrome live action film look like an old picture book. And like an old picture book, it evokes a sense of wondrous visual examination in its viewer. Really, the film is quite relaxed, its camera, its characters, its machines, all move about rather slowly, but this feels less like a failure in pacing or storytelling and more of an awareness of its own majesty.

    Currently watching: 1958/unseen Criterions

    Yeah, back when the non-downtown Julie Brown was doing her thing, it was originally meant as a primary vehicle for her, hence the seemingly random musical numbers in the salon and what not. Then it more or less became a comedic reunion of the leads from Cronenberg's Fly and seemingly half the cast of In Living Color (we're talking way young Damon Waynes and Jim Carrey).

    And a minor shout out to Charles Rocket as Dr. Love.

    I watched Falling Down last night and it holds up! It's not quite as slow a burn as I remember.

    * D-FENS is totally relatable as he bails out of the traffic jam
    * He calls his ex-wife and you wonder why he doesn't say anything
    * But then he beats the shit out of the Korean shopkeeper while being 1990s not racist (AKA being racist as hell by my modern eye) because he doesn't like the price of a soda
    * Then he fights the gangers--fine, whatever
    * Then calls his ex-wife again and we see she's got a restraining order on him

    And the screws keep tightening.

    Damn good movie.

    I'm with you on that one. The aesthetic of the film is great, but I don't think it does a particularly good job with its ideas, and it definitely fails them in the big showdown. It's a neat cult movie, but I think it's one that tends to fare somewhat better in the audience's imagination afterwards.

    The biggest crime of Dark City is that the opening scroll spoils the whole movie, presumably because the producers were worried that people wouldn't get what's going on.

    Proyas is definitely from the “twists = storytelling” school that Shyamalan went to, and studied under the same Gnosticism professors everyone making sci-fi in the 90s did.

    It’s an attractive film, and that’s about it really

    I saw Event Horizon when I was ~10-11 after my older brother rented it out to watch with some friends

    honestly I don't remember finding it scary at all, I think it was too over-the-top (with gore etc.) to be frightening

    At the time as a 17 year old it scared the shit out of me. Rewatching it recently its pretty cheesy.

    Rewatched the Fright Night(2011) remake last night with friends. We all agreed it's a lot of fun! Colin Farrell and David Tennent are really having the times of their lives fucking around in this film and its great. It's kind of a shame 3d didn't stick around in some ways, I feel like that movie capitalized on it really well with a chase that is obviously a lot of CG but is done in 1 take. Of course theres dumb 'stuff flying at the screen' gags too.

    If they're ever going to do a remake, they should have the first hour of standard body horror, blood guts and all the standard demons and just near the end another ship warps in beside them and boards the Event Horizon with a full compliment of Astartes Space Marines that proceed to beat the living shit out of the demons.

    The actual plot of Dark City is pretty meh but the aesthetic is fucking awesome. Director's cut is definitely the superior version.

    If there were to be a new Event Horizon movie, I'd much rather a divergent sequel. Give me an action movie Event Horizon 2: Eventer Horizons with prototype space marines fighting demons in We Can't Legally Call It The Warp, ala Aliens vs. Alien.

    Makes me think of the only good way to make a DOOM movie, which would be centered around a high-ranking demon desperately trying to fight back against Doomguy while he bloodily dismembers the entire army over several days.

    Final scene is the commander alone in a room full of flickering lights and monitors, trying to find out if the last-ditch effort finally succeeded. A green armored fist smashes through the door, pries it open with a screech, and in steps Doomguy past a gore-encrusted hallway dripping with various things, loading two fresh shells into his shotgun. A light dies and casts a highlight on the grin behind the mask.

    CUT TO CREDITS AND METAL.

    Dark City remains one of my favorite films, also because it was the first R-rated film I ever saw alone, and at 16, since some random stranger was kind enough to buy me the ticket.
    I'll always remember he asked "Which one?", as if judging me based on the answer. Then when I said "Dark City", he hesitated, and went "okay".
    (And of course one of the very first things my then-innocent mind saw was the graphic murder scene.)
