As per the original, this feels most alive when Robert Rodriguez's imagination is allowed to run wild with crazy creatures on the island that bring to mind Ray Harryhausen. Steve Buscemi is also on hand as a mad scientist. The wacky inventions of the first film feel toned down though; the flying pigtails are great, but a stretch here does not rely on technology, and some of it is downright silly this time (nose picking machine). The love interests felt silly too.

9. Chandler (1971) 4.4

The second lowest-rated film on the 1000 Noir list - only an Ed Wood film is rated lower. Slow, with a very vague plot.

I get quickly tired of such films, but I enjoy them on a moderate dose. So will try watching a few...

01. Glen or Glenda, by Ed Wood Jr (1953) 5,5/10 IMDB RATING : 4,2

While the film is poorly executed, with ridiculous appearances by Bela Lugosi and stock shots of buffalo or lightning, the film is one of the first on the subject of transvestites, and is more didactic than sensationalist. That's definitely something to give Ed Jr credit for...

02. Metamorphosis, by George Eastman (1990) 4/10 IMDB RATING : 3,9

Poorly directed, the film suffers from terrible VFX, which make it hilariously bad. The plot is full of clichés, but not reallt bad. I had fun watching this one...

This has a decent satirical premise with some nifty kills (shoving up a flagpole) as the war veteran killer here takes his patriotism too much to heart. The film also assembles a decent line of potential victims, from draft dodgers, to flag burners to those who mock the National Anthem. At the same time, we also get a curious child protagonist in the killer's hero-worshipping nephew who discovers that fighting for his country is not all that it seems.

Thanks for the update. :) And that sounds like my sort of effed up film. Will have to see if I can fit it in before the IMDb rating clicks above 5.4. :unsure:

A notorious flop, this actually begins well with much tension as the father and son's boat is confiscated by officials who laugh at their objections, and the way the son is tricked into enlisting is memorable too. After this strong start though, everything becomes messy as the pair go from one conflict to another, occasionally getting separated with little sense of time. The film unwisely tries to be a sweeping love story too despite few falling in love bits.

AVERAGE IMDb RATING SO FAR: 124.1 ÷ 26 = 4.77 / 10

While there are some great images and nifty novelty deaths here, the plot makes less sense than the other two movies by injecting a voodoo angle and romantic feelings in the killer that make him less enticing than the ruthless killing machine he previously seemed to be. Where the film gets really interesting is with a couple of Nightcrawler-like reporters, but alas they are mere supporting characters here with a media spin satire also sidelined.

01. Hot Gimmick: Girl Meets Boy [Hotto Gimikku: Garu Mitsu Boi ] by Yûki Yamato [2019]

If you read the manga, beware. Yamato didn't set out to make a simple manga adaption, instead she wanted to make cinema. The tropes of the genre are exaggerated, the cinematography is lush, the soundtrack an interesting update of classical pieces and the editing ... well, the editing is simply to die for. This was awesome.

And it's on Netflix, and directed by a 30 year old women, so you basically owe it to society to watch this film. The rating on IMDb is a 4.5/10 right now, because it's based on a shoujo manga and that audience did not expect a film that didn't just pander to their crappy fandom.

Lots of great ideas abound in this early David Cronenberg venture which, with its focus on genetic mutations, feels very much like a warm-up for the body horror master. A third viewing only confirms though how amateurish it feels, with many drawn out dialogue-free scenes, but it is frequently fascinating though as it looks at "creative cancers", organs extracted from a man who keeps growing new organs "seemingly without function" and so on.

FTV:1: Tanya's Island (1980) 4.2 on IMDb.

This gets a trash-tastic 8 from me!

Image

Splashing credits on the screen as waves wash over a naked Vanity against Jean Musy’s dark synch score, director Alfred Sole & future Scream (1996) cinematographer Mark Irwin place on the island a gloriously bonkers atmosphere of sleazy Canuxploitation flesh and a downer freeze frame,with New Age Freudian (!) babbling, boosted by Pierre Brousseau’s screenplay hilarious stumbling dialogue attempting a sincere psychoanalysts of Tanya and the beast within man, leading to a fantastic,utterly strange twist ending.

Swinging from a blood-socked Tanya, (played by a charmingly rubbish Vanity, whose awkward, flat line delivery adds to the weird delights) and Lobo (played by a delightfully gruff Richard Sargent) to a jungle containing a Rick Baker and Rob Bottin designed frisky gorilla, Sole happily piles the weird atmosphere high, thanks to sliding from one extreme of Psychotronic in Lobo’s turn into a screeching savage, to the other,in the sight of the howling gorilla called Blue, shaking the cage with a lust to get his hands on Tanya’s islands.

Far removed from popcorn flicks about glorious and graceful assassins, the focus here is always how unprofessional she is and how hard every kill is. This added realism does, however, mean that there is little action until the second half and her training scenes tend to be accompanied by an upbeat music score that feels tonally inconsistent. The film also does a poor job with exposition, but look out for a car chase shot from the passenger seat!

De Luca was a regular collaborator with Mel Brooks, and this seems like an attempt to ape Young Frankenstein.

It's only thanks to the having such good comic actors that this isn't a chore to sit through.

While the single location here might bring to mind Phone Booth or ATM, this is nowhere near as intense because there is no malicious external force confining him there. Mike Flanagan's Gerald's Game is probably the best comparison piece given that Adrien Brody's protagonist hallucinates here too, yet his hallucinations are less dynamic. There is actually very little driving the plot to the point that it becomes repetitive quickly. Good ending though.

The premise sounds okay as hippies have to cop when a mysterious gas kills off everyone over twenty-five. The stakes are always super low though (nobody every seems panicked despite social disarray and rampant rape) and with the gas leak occurring in the first ten minutes, the film never really establishes anything. This would have been better had it focused on actual kids coping with no parents rather than young adults getting up to mischief.

tells you all you need to know about why this film exists and what audience RKO - on it's last legs - was going for. Hey, it's 1955 in the USA, this is all the sex you're going to get. Well, it's not entirely accurate - Jane does get to swim around and show her assets in a tight swimsuit, and there are sharks and such, but as usual it's a bit exaggerated. Richard Egan and Gilbert Roland are the two salvage divers - Egan and Russell are married - who may have hit on their biggest payout in a Spanish treasure galleon. Unfortunately there are some modern-day potential pirates who know something's up and may have other plans for the loot. This isn't bad and the underwater photography is darn good for the era - looks much better to my eyes than Disney's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea from the previous year, though that's the only area it improves on the earlier film. Just not all that exciting when it comes down to it, and I'm not enough of a Jane Russell fan to care about her performance or how she looks in a swimsuit.

xx. Atlas Shrugged: Part I (Paul Johansson, 2011)
10. Atlas Shrugged II: The Strike (John Putch, 2012) 5.3
11. Atlas Shrugged: Part III (James Manera, 2014) 4.3

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs. - John Rogers

It's as good a summary as any of how wasted my life has been that the last bit of really sustained reading I did involved plowing through the 600,000 words of Ayn Rand's paean to greedy sociopathy, between the fall of 2018 and last summer - just about a year ago. Maybe it killed reading for me forever? Anyway, only a matter of time before I'd get around to the movies, especially given that they were on Prime. If I REALLY wanted to send some kind of psychic message as to how evil the original work is I'd have deliberately pirated them, but I'm too lazy for that. The first film astonishingly enough has a rating that's too high to count for this challenge - I guess the randroids are out in force and probably pushing the ratings of all three up over time; I seem to remember them being a bit lower a year or two ago.

Anyway I'm not going to go into major plot detail - find a synopsis if you want or read the book (but please don't do that). Essentially we have a USA - and entire world - overrun by socialism and collapsing, and a bunch of brave billionaire capitalists set out to save it for themselves. Literally for themselves, and themselves only. In the novel they spend much of the time speechifying about why greed is good and altruism is evil, and people who care about others really hate themselves and want to die (seriously). Thankfully we're spared virtually all of that here - I think the longest speech might last 5 minutes, while Galts' infamous address to the nation in Part III of the book is estimated to take 3-4 hours to read out loud. Whew, that's almost the run-time of all three movies! And having said that a lot gets left out, and if you haven't read the book you'll probably find a fair bit that doesn't make sense. Not to worry, even if you have read it it won't make sense unless you're Paul Ryan or Clarence Thomas. All three films were produced by novice producers and hard-core libertarians John Aglialoro and Harmon Kaslow, and they more than the talent involved are to blame for what happened, I suspect. Very briefly -

Part I had a decent-sized budget for a low-budget film - $20 million - and isn't too bad looking from a production standpoint; I rather like the design of Hank Reardon's office. Taylor Schilling, who plays heroine and lover of brutal, humiliating sex with anyone who's a better capitalist than her Dagny Taggart, was an up-and-coming 20something actress and while she's completely miscast for this, kind of deer-in-the-headlights meek and soft as opposed to "I'd kill your family and eat your puppy for a nickel" hard and ruthless, she somehow escaped this debacle unscathed and has gone on to star in Orange is the New Black and pick up some major awards noms. The rest of the top few names are totally obscure but Jon Polito, Michael Lerner and Armin Shimerman are all familiar faces, here in fairly small roles. One curiosity in the casting of Rand's all-Aryan* work is that Eddie Willers is played by a black actor, Edi Gathegi. At least, this seems curious until you realized that Willers is the Eternal Servant, even Lapdog. This goes along reasonably well and isn't too too tedious, it's mostly just badly acted and indifferently directed, and enough is chopped out that it feels sketchy and poorly edited, which I guess it is.

*Frisco d'Anconia is theoretically "hispanic" but not really described as such in the novel - he's played by a Latino actor (Jsu Garcia) here though.

The first thing you'll notice when sitting down to watch Part II is that the cast is completely different; that's right, they re-cast the whole film, every role. Why? I haven't delved that deeply into it, but I have read up a little bit, and can't really find out anything. I guess it's simply that the first film being a total flop and getting horrible reviews, the producers decided to start from scratch. OK. Unfortunately the changes don't help as the basic problems remain: a) they're starting with source material that is the worst book ever written by anybody in the history of the world and, b) they have to condense many, many hours of plot, however inane and repetitive it might be, into less than 2 hours. Also c) the budget is even less than the first film. This time we have Samantha Mathis on hand as Dagny, and she's about 15 years older than Schilling was, and doesn't bear the remotest comparison to the novel's description - which is important in Rand because physical appearance ALWAYS AND WITHOUT EXCEPTION denotes morality and worthiness. All of her heroes and heroines (well, heroine, Dagny's the only female character with real agency in the book) are tall, blonde or light-haired, typically blue or grey-eyed, and thin and angular - all her bad guys and women are sweaty, most overweight, shifty-eyed, etc, etc. Much has been made of the female Rand's overwhelming misogyny but I don't think enough focus has been given to her more subtle anti-semitism - and yes, she was Jewish herself. It's pretty easy to read the characters as largely Aryan supermen vs. lying, wheedling thieves that more than once are given familiar codes - Thompson, the "Head of State" (the US apparently no longer has a President) is called a "shyster" more than once. At any rate none of the films keep to this simpleminded character coding which on the one hand is welcome in being less overtly racist (except for the aforementioned Eddie Willers - played by a black actor again, one who is a good foot taller and hundred pounds heavier than the actor in the first film) but on the other really makes the work seem less extreme than it really is. At least Mathis is a little tougher and meaner than Schilling was, and overall the film seems to get at Rand's psycho-pathological hatred of everything that isn't money and power a bit better than the first film. Still overall a pretty dull and dreary ride.

Part III aka Who is John Galt is, you guessed it, completely re-cast again, and done on an even lower budget. Irony of ironies, this film adapting the third part of the doyen of laissez-faire Capitalism's masterwork was crowdfunded - but then again irony and hypocrisy are not characteristics that a typical libertarian is going to understand or care about. And as the second film had half the budget of the first, so too did this climactic chapter in what should have been THE GREATEST EPIC OF ALL TIME have it's budget halved from it's predecessor's. Not surprisingly this didn't help, and this film achieved a rare 0.0% on Rotten Tomatoes - and virtually no cinema release. The cheapness is REALLY apparent here too, with the big moment of John Galt's speech at the 20th Century Motors factory looking like something out of an episode of Buffy - a couple dozen people in a high school gym - and it doesn't help that Kristoffer Polaha looks and sounds more like an ex-hippie who is now a feng shui life coach than an absolute capitalist master (as well as the greatest engineer of all time, and the most manly man ever). The speed with which this particular episode dispatches plot threads goes from the just "oh well, who cares, no important" of the first two films to "let's just give 5 seconds to this 100 pages here" and it's actually laugh-out-loud funny a couple of times. Lots of stock footage also - there's a whole story about a particle beam weapon in the novel that just isn't here, so when the famous Taggart Bridge collapses it - I'm not joking - does so because of "excessive regulations". In it's favor I will say that Laura Regan LOOKS more like the Dagny Taggart of my dreams nightmares than her predecessors, but her performance is much like Schilling's, only worse. One not so surprising element that all three films share is a somewhat softened, kinder-gentler "vision" than Rand's - some of the worst elements like the sexual sadism are totally absent, and what is likely the worst scene in the book (or any book) where Rand goes into orgasms over the hundreds of people who needlessly die on a train - who deserve to die because they just don't love money or capitalism enough - is cut to just moments. But another pretty awful moment, Dagny's shooting of a guard who is just trying to do his job and is torn between orders, is left fairly intact and is just as disgusting here as in the book. Curious.

In summary the first two films are just rather bad and dull; the third, with a higher level of incompetence and lower budget - maybe most laughable in the John Galt torture sequence - is pretty hilarious and descends, or ascends depending on how you look at it, into so bad it's good territory.

Far better than the Roger Corman film, this Canadian comedy offers a sharper satire, looking at consumer behaviour and panic buying. The plot involves false rumours of a fuel shortage spreading, which causes everybody to fill up their vehicles unnecessarily, which in turn leads to an actual fuel shortage. The film mixes in a few too many protagonists and different comedy styles and therefore feels inconsistent, but gee is this Covid-19 relevant today.

Clearly influenced by Cronenberg's The Fly, this Canadian horror film involves a young woman who gradually transforms into something else after an infected bite from an unknown creature gradually worsens. The first half of the movie generally works better than the second half, but there is some amazing imagery throughout though, with gooey bodily afflictions that rival the best makeup in Cronenberg's ouevre. Great accentuated sound too.

The plot here sounds like a 2001: A Space Odyssey horror variant and in many ways it is, though the filmmakers never capture the intensity Kubrick established. Having the artificially intelligent computer manifest itself as a zany Jason Momoa makes it less scary than HAL's disembodied voice, and when the climax comes down to Momoa physically fighting other human-form computer programs, Tron springs to mind in the worst possible way.

Cronenberg makes great use of his limited locations, which look foreboding in stylish in black and white in this pseudo-documentary. The notions at hand fascinating too, with terms like "omnisexuality" and "three-dimensional sexuality" flung about as the narrator describes how sexual energy can be transferred telepathically. Upon second viewing, Stereo felt messier than I remembered, but lots of cool foreshadowing of Scanners and Videodrome.

04. Jason X, by James Isaac (2001) 6/10 IMDB RATING : 4,4

Poorly scripted and directed, the film still has good entertainment value thanks to its crazy idea of making a sci-fi slasher / aliens spoof...

I only enjoyed Nacho Vigalongo's parallel dimension story. The rest was weak of just bad...

1. In Memorium (2005) - 4.7
Image
Early prototype found footage flick. Original for the time of production and the story is slightly better worked out than usual. The pacing is good too, didn't feel bored at all. But the film's low budget really shines through, taking its toll on the acting. I bet they only had one take for every scene. Still, "In Memorium" a watchable effort in the found footage subgenre and it's certainly better than most released today. But I do have to criticize the director's lack of Latin knowledge. It's written In MemoriAm, not with a U.

2. I Am Alone (2015) - 4.5
Image
Being one of the few zombie found footage movies, "I Am Alone" has a slower-paced approach to the thematic and focuses more on the survival aspect of the situation than the action. The performances were solid and above average for dialogue-heavy indie horror. Unfortunately, the movie gets rather repetitive because it lacks a consistent plot.
