Well, I seem to do this at least once a challenge... I had typed up reviews of all of these movies and then my idiot self accidentally closed the browser without saving anything. So I think I'm just gonna do short, quick reviews where I feel like it.

Image
139. The Last Movie (1971) 273 checks
Too many drugs, Hopper. It was a mess.

Image
140. Stitches (2012) 346 checks
If you're the kind of person that wants to watch a movie where an evil clown uses a guy's intestines as a balloon animal, this is the movie for you.

Image
141. Wife vs. Secretary (1936) 351 checks
I love how flippantly casual people were about marriage in Hollywood movies of the 30's and 40's.

Image
142. O Bandido da Luz Vermelha a.k.a. The Red Light Bandit (1968) 251 checks
Pretty cool and stylish.

Image
143. Jayu manse a.k.a. Hurrah! For Freedom (1946) 83 checks
Pretty good for what was there.

Image
144. L'important c'est d'aimer (1975) 301 checks
It's a weird, Andrzej Zulawski movie. Either you're all in or you aren't.

Image
145. Reign of the Supermen (2019) 163 checks
A remarkably faithful version of the classic comic story line (complete with the real Supes having awesome MacGyver hair!).


Image
146. Another Take on Catherine (2011)[/v] first check
This was not at all what I expected. The Catherine video game is a fascinatingly metaphorical, psychosexual mindf--k with a Hitchcockian femme fatale at it's center who leads astray a deluded and unfaithful idiot, locking him into a bizarre battle for his life in a dream world that requires continuous climbing in the guise of a sheep. This blu-ray which purports to offer "Another Take" apparently only meets that requirement in the most tenuous and basic way possible by having an actress cosplay as Catherine posing as a cam girl and playing with herself in various softcore masturbation scenes... This was disappointing to say the least.

Image
147. Feu Mathias Pascal (1926) 125 checks
Too long but visually remarkable and at times quite interesting.

Image
148. Adua e le compagne (1960) 97 checks
Better than I thought it would be actually.

Image
149. The Pianist (1991) 6 checks
Worse than I thought it would be actually.

These next two I had to add to IMDB.

Image
150. M2: Complete Works (2019) first check
A neat documentary on the Japanese studio M2 who specializes in high quality ports of classic video games. The whole thing is on youtube here if anyone is interested in retro gaming.

Image
151. Rhys Darby: I'm a Fighter Jet (2017) first check
Darby, most well-known for playing Murray on Flight of the Conchords probably, serves up another fairly funny stand-up special that seemed like it could've been better.

10. Crime and Punishment (Josef von Sternberg, 1935) - 5/10 - 169 checks
With Peter Lorre in the main role, I felt it didn't really capture the psychological turmoil as well as it could have. Might have liked it more if I haven't read the book.

11. Lords of Chaos (Jonas Åkerlund, 2018) - 6/10 - 213 checks
Follows the beginning of the Norwegian Black Metal scene, concluding with the murder of Oystein Euronymous Aarseth (Rory Culkin) by Varg Vikernes, of Burzum fame (Emory Cohen). I felt that Emory Cohen was miscast, his acting was kinda off and he was too chubby for the role. Also, the humor was a bit too much, it felt like the movie didn't take the subject matter seriously at all. Still, despite its flaws, it was an enjoyable watch.

More palatable than fellow hospital-bound Carry On Nurse with less female objectification, this entry benefits from a great turn by Frankie Howerd as a patient who mistakenly believes that he is at death's door. Some of the same weaknesses as Nurse are present though. The film feels extremely episodic as it bounces between several main characters. Confining the characters to hospital beds also limits the possible gags. The rooftop bit was fun though.

I find Frankie Howerd generally painful to watch except for the Carry On Christmas 1969 TV special, where much were improvised, which he excels at.

Generally as the cast grows older this just gets more and more creepy. Catcalling in particular. Sidney James were 61 years in CO Dick f.ex, and died 2 years later. Not many of these I would call progressive. They just put men in a dress towards the end of the series and call it comedy.

The songs are generally pleasant here, but as a moody pianist, Frank Sinatra is the clear highlight with an especially chilling dangerous driving scene. Unfortunately, it is over 30 minutes in before Sinatra even appears with only the dullest of soap opera level relationship drama for over the entire first quarter of the film. The final five minutes are pretty weak too, especially considering the emotional crescendo that the film reaches shortly before.

Possibly the best of the comedy team's medical entries; focused on the staff rather than the patients for a change, the movie has a more solid (less episodic) plot and some very funny wordplay gags in addition to the usual shenanigans. The film also nicely ventures beyond the confines of the hospital location. Not all of the gags work, but there is a fun Wilfred Brambell cameo and Barbara Windsor's hearts outfit needs to be seen to be believed.

With eleven main characters, certain plot threads and individuals are more interesting to follow than others here, but all concerned are in very good form and this is funnier if anything upon revision. Barbara Windsor's wardrobe malfunctions are of course what this entry is best known for, but an irate, trigger-happy father provides many laughs too; same goes for Kenneth Williams being constantly tricked by his students and the theatre opening scene.

And this might well be my last <400 checks viewing for the month. I'll try to make time for another later on before midnight, but in case I don't and I forget to mention it, thanks for hosting, max.

Last post of the challenge! Thanks Max for another great hosting gig!

Image
152. Class of '74 (1972) first check
A fairly insufferable movie about a bunch of "educated" college hippies teaching a young naive girl about the ways of the world and the sexual revolution. It's as if you stumbled into the middle of a student film shoot on the quad at Berkeley in the early 70's and became overwhelmed with all the pretension.

Image
153. The Grissom Gang (1971) 131 checks
The third Robert Aldrich movie I've seen this month further cementing my feeling that the dude was not a fan of editing his movies. This movie clocks in at over two hours, probably a good 40 minutes longer than AIP would've done with the same material (not that AIP's version would've necessarily been better, just more economical). The plot concerns itself with a young woman kidnapped by gangsters who has the misfortune of having one of the gang take a shining to her, forcing her to make some uncomfortable choices to stay alive. The first half of this movie REALLY drags in places. There are multiple scenes of the gang mocking the brother who falls for the girl most of which are just unnecessary and drawn out. The back half of the film gets a lot more interesting as the police close in and the action ramps up.

Image
154. James Acaster: Repertoire: Recap (2018) 2 checks
Very funny somewhat absurdist British comedian, this fourth special in his loosely-connected Repertoire series which brings it all home, peppering in references and remixing/revisiting previous jokes, like providing a gluten free version of his bread ponderings from a previous special. Acaster's delivery is very on-point and I think he may be one of the most clever stand-ups out there today.

Image
155. The Curse of La Llorona (2019) 236 checks
<Looks down empty hallway then turns around>
<La Llorona pops up screaming>
Rinse. Repeat.
Man, this just felt like a lazy jump scare movie with a one-note villain and a very predictable plot. Avoid.

Image
156. Tom Segura: Completely Normal (2014) 74 checks
One more stand-up special for the road... Tom Segura is a pretty reliable comic. I wouldn't put him as a top tier favorite but he's consistently amusing and occasionally actively laugh out loud funny. His screamy "black voice" is tops.

Image
157. Monte Carlo (1930) 390 checks
I watched this one earlier in the month but forgot to check it off. It's a fairly typical early Lubitsch comedy involving a count pretending to be a hairdresser (eh?) who falls for a countess preparing for her own wedding. Honestly the most surprising thing about this one is that Maurice Chevalier isn't playing the count/hairdresser. It seems like an ideal kind of part for him. It was ok but there are certainly better Lubitsch comedies out there.

Image
158. Carmen a.k.a. Gypsy Blood (1918) 93 checks
Now switching Lubitsch gears, we have his take on the classic story of Carmen. Honestly, this tragedy is not the kind of thing I look for with Lubitsch and his disinterest in the material is palpable.

Image
159. Kladivo na carodejnice a.k.a. Witchhammer (1970) 202 checks
Man, this one was a total bummer to end the challenge on. Having said that, this story of sadistic witch trials in the middle ages is very good and definitely recommended. If offers a more realistic view of the motivations behind these trials and how they played out that more sensational films like Witchfinder General. The movie itself just pulls you down, turning the screws slowly and agonizingly to it's forgone conclusion much like Dean Lautner in the film.

53. The Amazing Johnathan Documentary (2019, 21 Checks)
If you're not familiar with him, The Amazing Johnathan is a magician/comedian who was popular in the 90s. I remember watching some of his stuff years ago, so I thought this would be a fun and funny stroll down memory lane with plenty of laughs along the way.

I was wrong.

I mean, it does start that way - the impetus for this documentary is that he's diagnosed with a heart condition and was given 1 year to live - four years ago. He's hanging on and is looking to do a bit of a comeback just to get out of the house and perform again. And then he pulls out the meth pipe. And the documentary takes a hard left turn and continues taking a series of hard left turns with surprise after surprise. I don't want to reveal too much, but the best metaphor I can think of is Tickled if you like the twists and turns and general WTF?!?ishness of that, you'll probably enjoy this one.

54. Shorts:
A Lad from Old Ireland (1910, 227 Checks, 12m)
Free Meek [holdover; already posted] (2019, 38m)
Aerial (1974, 4m, 153 Checks)
Lights (1966, 6m, 283 Checks)

And some shorts. Lights would have been way cooler if it didn't shake so god damned much.

Final movie for me...

28. National Gallery (2014)

238 checks

I'm totally not interested in paint art, so then this becomes a very loooooong movie, even considering the fact that I watched it spread out over three days (was pretty busy with other stuff). It only got interesting to me when it was about the process of restoration and stuff like placement in the gallery and lightning and such. The meetings were just boring. 5/10

Last year's <400 Checks Challenge was the one I burned-out on after a week- .... We'll see if I can last more than a week this year around.
I wish I hadn't said this. Shortly after writing this, I did exactly the same as I did last year. I started thinking of what else I could be doing, and ended up watching wrestling a few days before all the football leagues started, and to top it off, I tried to keep up with my increasing backlog of games on the Nintendo Switch. Seems it's going to be a annual thing. August, with summer vacation time over, I do a "What should I do now?" type thing. And I try all my hobbies and see what works best as escapism this "season".

I did get another 10 done before the month was up, but I just wasn't to be a contender this month.


31. Pardon My Stripes (1942, John H. Auer) - 1st check - 3/10
--- This one was just too desperate to create a funny scenario. Sure, it put a smile on my face on a few occasions, but most of the time I was thinking how stupid it was.


32. Assignment in Brittany (1943, Jack Conway) - 4th check - 5/10
--- Honorable espionage story starring French star Jean-Pierre Aumont during his brief war-time Hollywood stint. He comes out of this film with his dignity intact. While the film is solid, it lacks flair and the gruesome Nazi tactics comes across more as routine than emotional. But if you love old World War II movies, this is a good pick.


33. False Faces (1943, George Sherman) - 3rd check - 3/10
--- Such a minor effort. The story never seem to sink in properly, and that way doesn't get very exciting or as emotional as it attempts. With it's short running time, it also doesn't outstay it's welcome. It just isn't anything special.


34. Petticoat Larceny (1943, Ben Holmes) - 6th check - 5/10
--- Joan Carroll doing her best Shirley Temple impression hanging with some of the most lovable crooks you'll ever meet. All cute and a good time.


35. The Unknown Guest (1943, Kurt Neumann) - 1st check - 4/10
--- Might be made by Monogram, but I liked the mystery of it. The wonder of who this new guy in town (Victor Jory) was intriguing. Unfortunately, key moments were rushed, hindering any excitement from peaking and leaving it flatter than necessary. Still, it was a nice try.


36. Klondike Kate (1943, William Castle) - 4th check - 5/10
--- Underwritten and rushed, but with a lot of humor and amusing moments as Klondike Kate (1943) turns the outlaw town on its head. Look for the crazy dive through the saloon swing-door during the bar fight at the end! The lovely cat too! The story doesn't make much sense, but the idea for this one was always to have fun with the scenario.


37. And the Angels Sing (1944, George Marshall) - 10th check - 5/10
--- Fred MacMurray was just a jerk in this one. One of his least likable roles for me. Thankfully this had a awesome set of ladies. Dorothy Lamour of course, even if she plays it a little too straight. For everyone ends up in Betty Hutton shadow, delivering one mad moment after the other! What a incredibly talented performer! I loved her here in And the Angels Sing (1944). A fine showcase for her.


38. Xiong chu mei zhi bian xing ji [Boonie Bears: The Big Shrink] (2018, Leon Ding & Huida Lin) - 1st check - 4/10
--- I saw the 4th entry in this "Boonie Bears" franchise earlier this year, and the while it might struggle with some to connect because of the cultural differences between Chinese and animation film making elsewhere, I did like this 5th one much better. Much to do with the father issues and "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" elements. There were actually some captivating action and funny moments here. Totally predictable, of course, but there are far worse 2nd-tier animation films being produced.


39. Den utrolige historie om den kæmpestore pære [The Incredible Story of the Giant Pear] (2017, Amalie Næsby Fick, Jørgen Lerdam & Philip Einstein Lipski) - 27th check - 5/10
--- Favorable family movie. The story goes in all directions with plenty of shortcuts, but it's rather sweet and lovable regardless. Perhaps not the cream of the crop of animated experiences, but still put a smile on the entire family.


40. Forgotten Commandments (1932, Louis J. Gasnier, William Schorr) - 2nd check - 2/10
--- Keep in mind that this was the sound era, I'm not sure if I'd call it a extremely brave decision or a super lazy one to insert 21 minutes of Cecil B. DeMille's legendary silent film The Ten Commandments (1923) into this for moral effect. Considering that's 1/3rd of the entire run-time, and the rest of the scenario was set in a incredibly poorly done Russian surroundings, I'll go with lazy. Best I can say about the film was that Irving Pichel displayed some cynical qualities. Otherwise, this was a odd one from a production standpoint.
