This eighth Carry On venture benefits from exquisite sets and costumes as it spins an 18th century shipbound tale. The project is once again shot in rich colour too. Such technical qualities aside though, this is a lesser entry. With very few Carry On regulars and an overload of jokes from Juliet Mills cross-dressing, this is not as vibrant or as funny as series par. Mills and Bernard Cribbins are also barely more than serviceable as romantic protagonists.

21. Ma Loute (2016)

287 checks

I often turn on movies without checking what I'm actually going to watch. It's often just the next thing on my queue. In some cases it's very soon clear which director I'm watching a movie off. Some directors just have a very clear trademark. That's often a good thing. With Bruno Dumont, I just don't get it. His trademark is people who act like retards. Every movie again and again and again. Why? Why can't he do something else for a change?
There's certainly some great camera work in this one and the scenery is gorgeous. I even enjoyed the ridiculousness of the disappearance and the black humor of the

This follow-up feature from Your Name director Makoto Shinkai has some spectacular images (heavy rainfall; rapidly clearing skies; transparent skin; fireworks) and while the love story is nowhere near as touching as in Your Name, there is an intriguing enough fantasy mythology at hand to keep things interesting from start to finish. The film relies a little too heavily on fades to black, sentimental songs and very blatant product placement though.

23. La famiglia Passaguai (1951)

38 checks

I can imagine an Italian cinema in the 50's where the whole crowd was laughing their asses off on this one. 70 years later it feels dated and stupid. It's a comedy, but it's never funny. The reason for this is that almost every joke is based on a misunderstanding between characters. You can also see most jokes coming from miles away. For example, when the family arrives on the beach, they are assigned to dressing cabin 9. About 45 minutes later in the movie, the number on the cabin........ ah well, you get it, right? That kind of movie. If you like that stuff, you'll probably enjoy this. It's fast paced as you might expect from such an Italian movie. The subber had a hell of a though job making those subs (and I often had trying to keep of reading). If you don't like misunderstanding-jokes, please don't watch this.

40. Another Man's Poison (1951) 176 checks

Image

Despite being incredibly complex, the premise here works well at first, especially as the femme fatale soon reveals a twist with regards to her poisoning. The second half of the film is, however, weighed down by a couple of subplots that only distract from the main plot. Emlyn Williams does okay as a nosey neighbour, but his interferences are always less interesting than the tension between leads Bette Davis and Gary Merrill.

41. Lucky Star (1929) 372 checks

Image

Playing a character three quarters her actual age, Janet Gaynor is convincingly youthful yet mature when it comes to love here, while Charles Farrell is charming and does some amazing things with his wheelchair. Farrell has a memorable fight on top of a telegraph pole early on too. The 'who should she chose?' story here is incredibly simple though and hardly Sophie's Choice. The somewhat insensitive ending also leads an odd taste in the mouth.

109. Chelsea Peretti: One of the Greats (2014) 211 checks
You may know Chelsea Peretti from Brooklyn Nine Nine. While her standup doesn't quite live up to the introduction, it does have it's funny moments. It also has these just weird, distracting things in it like someone randomly turning on a vacuum cleaner or an audience member screaming 'Chelsea, I love you!' so loud that it disrupts the show. I'm guessing it's supposed to be some kind of sub-conscious manipulation trying to psyche herself out or something but just comes off and random and kind of pointless.

Image
110. Cathy Come Home (1966) 148 checks
Geez... What the hell happened in Ken Loach's childhood? This is the second relentlessly depressing film from him that involves children being taken away from their parents (after Ladybird, Ladybird earlier in the month). Not only that but this one also gives us the pleasure of watching a family slowly descend further and further into poverty and homelessness in a raw, docu-drama style. C'mon, Ken... It's ok to smile once in a while :lol:

Image
111. Kidô senshi Z Gandamu III: Hoshi no kodô wa ai a.k.a. Mobile Suit Z Gundam 3: A New Translation - Love Is the Pulse of the Stars (2006) 10 checks
The final movie in the series sees the major character deaths ramp up dramatically as the final battle heads underway. Things felt pretty rushed in places, owing to the distilling of a 50 episode series into three ~100 minute movies. But despite that, it still had a very good ending that I may need to revisit in full someday.

Image
112. Anna and the Apocalypse (2017) 119 checks
While this was a pretty entertaining zombie-Christmas-musical comedy, I felt like it could've been much better in a better director's hands. Some of the songs were pretty catchy but the plot was pretty basic and it really lacked interesting set pieces to make it stand out from a legit zombie horror standpoint. Still, the acting was generally pretty decent and a couple of character deaths were actually a little surprising. You could certainly do worse for dark festive flicks to feast on.

Image
113. The Night of the Following Day (1969) 99 checks
A ringer cast, good soundtrack and solid premise involving a kidnapping and ransom can't seem to buoy what amounts to a pretty dull movie in places. The very definition of wasted promise.

Image
114. Fist of the Vampire (2007) 10 checks
Continuing my journey through the Bad Movie Bible, I can definitely see why this one ended up in there. It's pretty amazingly terrible with wildly incompetent acting and dialogue, a stupid plot involving vampires running a fight club and some really dumb director choices like attempting to make the movie look like a 70's grindhouse flick randomly by adding poorly layered scratches and grain. You probably know by now whether this movie will appeal to you or not.

Image
115. Rita, Sue and Bob Too (1987) 217 checks
This was an odd one. Several reviews I've seen talk about how realistic its depiction of growing up in Yorkshire in the 80's is. I can't really speak to that aspect of it necessarily but it certainly has a lot of little naturalistic touches where I can see where they're coming from. At it's center, the plot is kind of a midlife crisis wet dream of a married man with a shrew of a wife who kicks off an affair with a couple of teenage girls who's motivation in the affair seems to be out of boredom with where they are in life more than anything else. Interestingly the movie really doesn't seem to attempt to pass judgment on the girls or the married man much but more just lets events unfold as they are.

Image
116. Repertory Theatre: Marty (1953) 192 checks
This version of Marty, filmed a couple years earlier than the more famous Ernest Borgnine version features Rod Steiger in the title role. While Steiger loses some of Borgnine's innocent sweetness, he gains more of a touch of realism in his performance. The TV movie version also seems to give short shrift to Clara's character development. Regardless, it's still just a very nice, charming little story to watch. I'd suggest checking it out if you've only seen the bigger Hollywood version to compare the two.

Image
117. Buppha Rahtree (2003) 19 checks
Man, this Thai flick seesawed tone all over the place with themes involving sexual blackmail, rape, attempted suicide and death from botched abortion with crazy dark comedy horror exorcism, ghostly hauntings, weird gore and other manner of outlandish shenanigans. I liked it pretty well but I'd hesitate to unabashedly recommend it to people randomly.

118a. Geometria (1987) 135 checks
118b. In the Beginning Was the End: The Truth About De-Evolution (1976) 34 checks
Here we have a couple more Criterion Collection bonus shorts, Geometria from their Cronos release and In the Beginning was the End from Island of Lost Souls. Geometria is an early short from Guillermo Del Toro involving a boy summoning a demon to get him out of a geometry test with a suitably ghoulish Tales from the Crypt-esque ending. In the Beginning... is basically an extended Devo music video compilation stitched together with the band's devolution mission statement. Both are interesting little curios for those wanting to dig deeper.

Nice depiction of hell. The story was less interesting, but maybe I should have watched the longer version. Unfortunately that one doesn't exist with English subs. 7/10

Geez... What the hell happened in Ken Loach's childhood? This is the second relentlessly depressing film from him that involves children being taken away from their parents (after Ladybird, Ladybird earlier in the month). Not only that but this one also gives us the pleasure of watching a family slowly descend further and further into poverty and homelessness in a raw, docu-drama style. C'mon, Ken... It's ok to smile once in a while :lol:
If you're looking for light-hearted Loach, then https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/the+angels+share/ is what you want. But yeah, generally there's not much room in Loach's socially conscious filmmaking for non-depressing stories.

Ben Whishaw does okay within the confines of his role here and the supporting cast are decent, but the basic plot is quite simple and feels stretched even at less than 90 minutes. Everything revolves around the questions of when he will tell his closeted dead lover's mother that he was gay, and while he hires a translator to help them communicate, this is mostly shoehorned into a subplot in which he tries to help the widowed woman find love again.

Based on the same case that inspired Hitchcock's Rope, this black and white drama focuses more on the killers' homosexual lifestyles (and how that plays into their trial) than the murder itself. Some of the court scenes are brutal with the prosecution calling them perverts and getting 'experts' to testify to their "unnatural lusts". The trial does not occur until the second half of the film though and the first half takes a long time to get going.

A decent Wyatt Earp Western with Joel McCrea with very familiar narrative elements. Not sure why it's gotten enough enthusiasm to make the forum's 500<400 list.

The gags are hit-and-miss here as usual in this Bond spoof, with a cross-dressing incognito Bernard Cribbins a particular low point, but the film ends on a strong note as we are taken inside the evil corporation's lair. The place is a magnificent feat of art direction and all their kooky devices - including a hypnotism machine - are great. Judith Furse is also pitch perfect in a role no doubt written with Hattie Jacques in mind. The final gag is excellent too.

25. The Paradise Suite (2015)

83 checks

Hard to watch. There are some very emotional harsh scenes in this one. The acting is pretty good as well. It's just a shame they put too many stories into one movie. The paths of the characters cross, but the stories are only related to each other because of the theme, not the content. 7/10

119. Daisy Kenyon (1947) 374 checks
A great cast rescues what could have been a very soapy melodrama involving a marital affair that leads into an attempt to break up a second marriage. Joan Crawford is great as a woman conflicted over her feelings for two men. Dana Andrews is here is classic charming heel mode and Henry Fonda delivers another very likable but still real performance. This one is certainly worth a watch if you can get past the initial soapy trappings of the story line.

Image
120. Habit (1995) 59 checks
An early Larry Fessenden film finds Larry himself played a downtrodden guy trying to mend his heart after a breakup who gets himself mixed up with a woman who turns out to be a vampire feeding on him which sends his life spiraling. The low budget nature of it hampers what could have been an interesting premise, a kind of mix of toxic love and addiction. Honestly while this isn't bad, Abel Ferrara's The Addiction is a better film that covers similar territory.

Image
121. The Last American Virgin (1982) 355 checks
I'm kinda surprised this one isn't on any official lists. While the first half's bland teen sex comedy shenanigans aren't going to get any critics to perk up, the second half's incredibly bleak narrative gets very serious and becomes almost a totally different movie. With an ending that seems to scream "Fuck you Hollywood", I could see this one having a cult following.

Image
122. On purge bébé (1931) 60 checks
From Jean Renoir, internationally acclaimed director of such classics as Le Grand Illusion and La Bete Humaine, comes a movie fixed on adultery and constipation and not really much else... I mean, it was Renoir's first sound film so maybe he hadn't really found his voice yet I guess?

Image
123. Sicilia! (1999) 229 checks
I honestly don't know why I keep watching films by Danièle Huillet and Jean-Marie Straub. They just seem insufferable to me. Despite this one being barely over an hour, it felt interminable.

Image
124. Batman: Gotham by Gaslight (2018) 318 checks
This was a rewatch for the movie club at work. It's an animated film essentially supplanting Batman into Victorian period Gotham City with Jack the Ripper loose on the city and Batman tasked to track him down. So this is one that I've read the original story it's adapted from (and which changes the identity of the ripper in order to I assume deliver a mystery for prior readers) and while I think overall the movie is well paced and still considerably better than some of the dreck that DC has shoveled out in its live action films in recent years (I'm looking at you especially Suicide Squad), my main quibble is in how Batman discovers the identity of the killer. In the original story, he deduces it through careful research and intensive study, as one would expect of "The World's Greatest Detective". In the movie version, he basically discovers the identity purely by accident. Not a make or break kind of thing, but still the sort of plot point that annoys me.

Image
125. Porgy and Bess (1959) 365 checks
While this had some solid acting, I felt like the actual direction was fairly static and overly stage-y. BUT I will always be grateful to Porgy & Bess for gracing us with several amazing jazz standards like Summertime and It Ain't Necessarily So, so well performed by Miles Davis among others.

Image
126. Kkeut-kka-ji-gan-da a.k.a. A Hard Day (2014) 345 checks
This Korean thriller offers up an undercover cop plot in a similar vein as other action thrillers like Infernal Affairs but has enough distinct personality and tension of it's own to make it quite good and certainly worth seeking out.

Image
127. Kiss of the Damned (2012) 194 checks
While the cover art made this one look like a Twilight rip off, what Xan Cassavetes (of the Cassavetes film dynasty) delivers is something quite different, a more nuanced borderline art film that still has some pretty effective vampire horror sequences and is at its heart a quite lovely romance story.

26. Leo the Last (1970)

57 checks

Weird mixture. It addresses themes like poor vs rich and a bit less black vs white. Leo watches the "other side" Rear Window style. At first those two worlds exist totally separate of each other, but gradually Leo gets more involved in the poor side. The rich side has a lot of Fellini weirdness, a bit like a sect and I didn't really get what the point of that was. But all together an interesting watch. 7/10

25. The Paradise Suite (2015)

83 checks

Hard to watch. There are some very emotional harsh scenes in this one. The acting is pretty good as well. It's just a shame they put too many stories into one movie. The paths of the characters cross, but the stories are only related to each other because of the theme, not the content. 7/10
Fun fact, my mother-in-law and her brother are in the choir. I didn't spot either of them though.
