    HOLY.
    MOLY.
    Talk about genre pastiche and gonzo homage up the wazoo.
    This film draws from such Ozploitation cult classics as BMX Bandits, post-Road Warrior spaghetti apocalypse schlock, Hershel Gordon Lewis,/vintage Peter Jackson,/vintage Cronenberg (in respect to the gore and practical effects), Monty Python's Holy Grail, Power Rangers, Solarbabies, Cherry 2000, and too many other influences to list here. If you're quick you'll catch the visual nod to Jackson's Dead Alive as well as verbal nods to Soylent Green and visual winks towards Waterworld, amongst others that I probably missed.
    Suffice it to say, if you grew up in the '80s, then this flick may appeal to you.
    The film is rendered as if it were a lost '80s artifact, and while that schtick is kinda old (the whole faux grindhouse mini-movement), it works well here.
    While the story is a simple one of revenge and retribution, the pacing is fast and furious, the camp level is 11+, and the practical gore effects are amazing.
    The filmmakers obviously love the schlock from days gone by and it shows.
    If you're a genre nerd or just want something light, funny, violent, and kitchsy, this may very well be your jam.

    Really enjoyed this, if it had fallen into the hands of someone with deeper pockets it could have easily been as popular as Stranger Things.
    .....I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record

    The whole thing was kinda twisted. Is it really gonna end like that? will season 3 continue with the same, or o to an entire new story.

    Thought the same, am betting that season three is part II of season 2.

    Just finished watching "The Frozen Ground"

    I think I saw it back when it came out. True Story, good acting.

    John Cusack did really well playing the part of the villain.

    Goliath was good, but I could have done without the graphic limb removal scenes.

    Quite possibly the most elaborate dick & fart joke ever committed to film (or any other medium, for that matter. If Guinness had an entry for such a feat, this film would be the most serious of contenders.

    If that doesn't work for you, then this is the most searingly absurd endictment of California's mental health system I've ever seen.

    or, if you will, imagine Where the Wild Things Are crossed with a Monty Python skit gone horribly awry. Either that, or perhaps Robinson Crusoe as re-imagined by John Blutarsky.

    Wtf indeed. Enjoyed it simply in the ... huh.. factor. Thanks for another no fail recommended movie

    Nick Cave: 20,00 DAYS 0N EARTH
    4/5

    I would probably consider myself to be a casual Nick Cave fan at best; I own a few of the Bad Seeds albums and at least one Birthday Party album and have seen him live once, but couldn't name one of his songs if you asked me on the spot. Yet I found this film to be insanely mesmerizing. If you really dig the man there's no way you won't like it. And even if you aren't that familiar with Cave or his music it's a facinating examination of the inner workings of a musician's mind.

    It's rendered in a really cool, very surreal manner and provides a rather provocative look at the musician and his thought process, primarily focusing on Cave grappling with his own mortality and delving into the whole rockstar aura/persona/mystique.

    Highly recommended.

    Watched Brawl in Cellblock 99 last night, starting a very fucked up Vince Vaughn. Grindhouse slow burner, but the violence was in the "holy shit' vein. Great weekend movie, highly recommended.

    Digging Bosch. I like the film noir vibe it's got going. Some great actors in it too - some refugees from the wire

    Really enjoyed 20,000 days on earth. Was already a big Nick Cave fan.

    Dookey has not steered me wrong yet. Thanks again.

    Just starting Everybody Wants Some!! now.

    ^^^Thanks. I've always been curious about how they source local meat and produce on le tour. I wonder if Sky has fresh seafood and produce flown to each stage.

    I'm only a few episodes in, but The Man in the High Castle is pretty interesting so far.

    xXx: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE
    4/5

    This film is so ridiculously over-the-top that it's amazing.

    I barely remember the previous two xXx movies, but I recall that they took themselves a bit too seriously. To that end, this one is quite easily the best of the lot, mostly because it’s pretty damn obvious that all of he participants aren’t taking the proceedings too seriously (I swear Vin Diesel looks like he’s laughing throughout the entire picture, like it's obvious that he knows the whole thing is idiotic, but he's having a good time regardless. In many ways it brings to mind the latter period Burt Reynolds/Dom Deluise efforts).

    The rest of the supporting cast is great, plus it's one of the coolest assemblages of international actors, that I can think of, to grace the Silver Screen in a long time. Donnie Yen and Deepika Padukone stand out, but everyone is great and adds a lot of flavor to the film.

    Additionally, there are some super cool stunts wherein it’s hard to tell what’s real and what was CG’d (even a ridiculous motorbikes-in-the-waves bit looks real).

    In short, this is the antithesis to the most recent James Bond films and the Mission: Impossible franchise.

    Again, I cannot stress just how f@#king ridiculous, but in a great way, this film is. I personally feel that it achieved camp levels of awesomeness.

    Oh yeah, it has a crazy-ass skiing sequence that was performed by Cody Townsend, LJ Strenio, Sandy Boville, Karl Fostvedt, and Thayne Rich.

    Watch it with your tongue planted firmly in your cheek.
