Isn't It Ironic?
1. Ernest Scared Stupid (1991)
2. Anaconda (1997)
3. Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994)
4. Species (1995)
5. Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (1994)
6. Hocus Pocus (1993)
7. The Interview (1998)
8. Vampires (1998)
9. Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media (1992) 167m
10. Prom Night IV: Deliver Us from Evil (1992)
11. The Witches (1990)
12. Con Air (1997)
13. Belfast, Maine (1999) BC1: 249m
14. Once Upon a Time in China (1991)
15. Any Given Sunday (1999) BC1: 162m
16. Ghost (1990)
There were some weird things about this, but it was fine. Nice enough plot, it just didn't move me. I'm not sure if it's because it's so cliched at this point (yes, I know the cliches came from somewhere), but I couldn't get into it. Sweet for sure, but not great.

17. Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Much like many Disney films, good unless you think about it.

18. Blood Ties (1991)
19. Vamp (1986)
A couple horror doubles I'll talk about over there.

20. Nowhere to Run (1993)
I've been a little jealous of jereono and the '90s schlock run, so I had to jump in with a JCVD masterpiece (and a day after his 60th b-day, coincidentally). You know what? Better than I expected (though I expected very little). An escaped convict holes up at a farm, only to help the woman and her kids from the evil capitalistic overlords. Over the top and ridiculous, it's fun and not boring. Solid action scenes, decent fires and effects, and surprisingly nice acting from the kids. Only moderately awkward that the mother and 6yo daughter talked about the size of JCVD's dick. And a mountaintop motorcycle sequence that reminded me of a video game. A bit like JCVD does The Fugitive after dropping acid and watching Up.

Good luck with life, sol! I'll keep up with the main standings until you're back.
Thanks, max (and everyone else who chimed in on either this thread or the weekly thread).

For those concerned, this is primarily a work (not health) related issue. I'm going to continue to watch (and post) movies over the next few days since it helps relax/take my mind off things, but I just don't have the concentration at the moment for in-depth discussion on the weekly thread or plugging in the numbers here. I might abandoned the long films bonus challenge as well. I was initially planning to introduce a point system for the bonus challenge in order to reward those watching some 4-hour films as opposed to those sticking around the 135 mark, but I have been way too busy to place any of that into action. Maybe in another challenge in another month.

So, I'll continue to post viewings over the next few days and I will continue to update the 1000<400 in-progress list, but I don't really want to engage much with the forum over the next few days. Or in four simpler words: I need a break.

Sure no problem. We all feel like that at times. Doing stuff for the forum voluntary and discussing movies in depth has to be fun, not another obligation during a stressfull situation. Wish you all the best.

12. Fierce Creatures (1997, Fred Schepisi, Robert Young): 7.2 - I found it be funny. It's painful how topical the issue of a hostile financial take-over, downsizing and having to meet new set profit margin still is two decades later.
90s horror and some more
1. Frankenhooker (1990, Frank Henenlotter): 5.8
2. Candyman (1992, Bernard Rose): 7.2
3. Maximum Risk (1996, Ringo Lam): 6.0
4. Barb Wire (1996, David Hogan): 4.0
5. Matinee (1993, Joe Dante): 7.2
6. Mortal Kombat (1995, Paul W.S. Anderson): 6.5
7. Hudson Hawk (1991, Michael Lehmann) rewatch: ? > 5.8
8. Half Baked (1998, Tamra Davis): 3.8
9. The Cable Guy (1996, Ben Stiller) rewatch: ? > 5.5
10. Friday (1995, F. Gary Gray): 7.2
11. Waterworld (1995, Kevin Reynolds) rewatch: ? > 7.0

This has been compared to everything from Lynch to Cronenberg and traverses intriguing ground as the lines between reality and fantasy/television blur. Most notable are walls of television sets that taunt the protagonist, but his final line is haunting too - and very relevant in an era where television fame is not always glitz and glamour. The whole thing is ominously visualised too with darkness and nighttime shots favoured and John P. Ryan is stellar.

More about obsession than necrophilia, the mortician does not fall in love with the corpse here because she is dead, nor does he ever "go all the way", making this feel pretty tame. It is also unclear what is going through his mind. He apparently thinks she is alive, and yet he makes excuses for what he recognises is the stench of her rotting corpse, plus he hides her from others. Lead actor Mark Jax is really good here though and the makeup is great.

This bizarre comedy/horror blend is loaded with over-the-top splatter and gore, including some very imaginative kills (stiletto; duck gun). The jester looks pretty creepy too and the mansion is spooky. The comedy angle is hit-and-miss though with more misses than hits. Also, the way the jester keeps looking at the camera and talking directly to us (while making supposedly witty quips) subtracts from any immediacy. Christopher Lee is fun though.

3. A Brief History of Time (1991)
An Errol Morris movie with a Philip Glass score that's about the nature of time? This movie seemed perfect for me. It wasn't. It was a major disappointment. The score is barely noticeable. And while Morris is up to his usual tricks, he can't save the movie because most of it is a series of explanations of Hawking's work that are hard to understand and don't make clear why his insights are important. Plus, there's a good amount of anodyne blather about Hawking's life: He liked playing board games with his sister as a child, he was a coxswain in college, etc.

4. A Night at the Roxbury (1998)
Let's keep it simple: This movie was not interesting and mostly not funny. I do have to give credit to the performers for sticking with it, though. Chazz Palminteri hit the same unfunny joke at least a dozen times. I admire that sort of persistence in pursuit of a futile task. And Chris Kattan and Will Ferrell put a lot of physical comedy into roles that didn't deserve them.

Yeah... that would be because I somehow convinced my brain that Vamp was from the 1990s. So it did not even occur to me that a film from 1986 was not from the 1990s... :circle:

It's fixed in my spreadsheet. I'm at 20 right now. I'm too lazy to edit posts.

20. My Best Fiend {aka Mein liebster Feind - Klaus Kinski} (Werner Herzog-1999)

The main problem with this documentary is that it feels self-serving. Herzog wants to push the legend of Kinski the insane, which helps promote his movies.

I have consulted with an expert chronologist, and have been assured that 1991 was in the 1990s. :P

Denzel plays an elite and awesome cop who takes down an evil hitman. Denzel continues to be awesome and becomes an ADA. Hitman escapes jail and vows revenge on Denzel, wanting to ruin his life and send him to jail. Ridiculous. Over the top. Some of the major plot elements didn't make sense, but the action scenes were good and John Lithgow plays one HELL of a villain.

13. Twister (1996, Jan de Bont): 3.5 - Extremely mediocre blockbuster.
14. U.S. Marshals (1998, Stuart Baird): 5.2 - It has some nice action sequences. But overall it's just way too long and overly complicated instead of being a straightforward efficient suspenseful cat and mouse plot.
90s horror and some more
1. Frankenhooker (1990, Frank Henenlotter): 5.8
2. Candyman (1992, Bernard Rose): 7.2
3. Maximum Risk (1996, Ringo Lam): 6.0
4. Barb Wire (1996, David Hogan): 4.0
5. Matinee (1993, Joe Dante): 7.2
6. Mortal Kombat (1995, Paul W.S. Anderson): 6.5
7. Hudson Hawk (1991, Michael Lehmann) rewatch: ? > 5.8
8. Half Baked (1998, Tamra Davis): 3.8
9. The Cable Guy (1996, Ben Stiller) rewatch: ? > 5.5
10. Friday (1995, F. Gary Gray): 7.2
11. Waterworld (1995, Kevin Reynolds) rewatch: ? > 7.0
12. Fierce Creatures (1997, Fred Schepisi, Robert Young): 7.2

Told from the perspective of Dr. Jekyll's maid, this is a curious re-imagining. Oblivious to the fact that Jekyll and Hyde are one and the same for the most part, the film gets much mileage from Mary discussing her father's alcoholism ("the drinking turned him into a different man"). There is also humour in the other servants commenting on how similar Hyde and Jekyll look without suspecting they are the same. Julia Roberts feels miscast though.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Opening with an insane scene in which a vampire severs his fingers - the stubs of which promptly turn into stop motion animated miniature demons (see above) - this gets off to a strong start but never lives up to such early promise. Much of the film is dedicated to three young women vacationing in Romania - none of whom are particularly likeable or well developed - while the cool demon critters always take a backseat to the fairly dull vampires.

The plot is a little thin here, mostly consisting of one novelty death after another, but all the dark humour involved in the deaths is divine. The djinn's every victim meets his or her demise through the djinn interpreting wishes a little too literally, often creatively entrapping his victims into saying choice phrases. It could even be argued that the entire film is a metaphor for being careful what you wish for. The special effects are phenomenal too.
