The Bad, The Weird, and if we're lucky the sorta GoodShow

1 - The Filmmaker Neil Breen, The Light of This World

1. Double Down (2005) 4.5
2. I Am Here....Now (2009) 4.9
3. Fateful Findings (2013) 4.7
4. Pass Thru (2016) 5.4
Brett Kelly, the David Michael Latt of the North

More about Kelly in the Run the Directors Challenge thread

5. Hell at My Heels (2011) 1.1 - also first to check

"Western" starting out with 2 guys chained together, one of them an ex-sheriff, who have to survive the desert heat and get revenge on the guy (the new sheriff) who put them in this position. This is where you notice immediately that Kelly has no ability, or no desire to film action - gunfights are always a guy with a gun in close-up, then another guy with a gun, then one of them falling down, never in the same shot. Again, no blood or FX of any kind, except for what look to be digitally enhanced muzzle flashes. The long, almost endless confrontation scene at the end really looks like it was shot on somebody's back lawn - in fact throughout the film all the grass is nicely mowed, like it always was in the Old West.

6. Rise of the Black Bat (2012) 1.2

Kelly is credited as "Scott Patrick" here and on some of his other "work", don't know why, don't care. This is an amalgam of the Daredevil and Batman characters, with a very tall and somewhat out-of-shape actor in a really terrible-looking black vinyl suit going around shooting criminals; it's all flashback as we learn how he was a district attorney (like Daredevil) who got blinded (like Daredevil) at the order of an evil mob boss, then went to some mystics in the Orient or somewhere (there are a few short scenes describing this, with 1 or 2 Asian-looking people among the dozen or so actors playing scientists or doctors) and got his sight back - but it's special night-vision dontcha know. Um, that's all I want to bother with.

7. Jesse James: Lawman (2015) 1.9

Kevin Sorbo I guess got tired of all those Christian films and decided to take a break, but now he's unhireable except by hacks like Kelly, so he's here narrating his story as an 81-year-old (but with no attempt made whatsoever to make the 57-year-old Sorbo look older at all) reflecting back on when he was young Jesse James, and working briefly for the law to deal with some villains terrorizing a town (which we never see - the terrorizing that is - we see one saloon in the town with maybe 3-4 people in it). Peter Fonda is also on hand as the mayor and it looks like his scenes were shot completely separately, he has no interaction with the actor playing the sheriff he's talking to. Lawrence Evenchick and Andrew Galligan who play the sheriff and younger Jesse James (I'm actually surprised it wasn't Sorbo playing both 30-something and 80-something James with no makeup at all; that would have been amusing to say the least) are actually not terrible - and they are Kelly regulars - certainly better than most of the rest of the casts of these three films, and Sorbo and Fonda are better even obviously slumming and not caring than everybody else, so this is the "best" of the films by default.

This is an odd film that pulls in two near polar directions. As a comedy, it is heartwarming with lots of great moments as the well-trained dog bonds with Corey Haim and impresses him with his intelligence. The film is also partially a horror movie of the 'creature feature' variety though, and crazy as some of the kills are with the mutant beast's face obscured, the illogical reasons why he was bred to track down the dog never quite make sense.

That one's been on my to-see list for years because it's based on a Dean Koontz novel I read, though at this point I really don't remember the book at all. Maybe that's for the best; good chance I'll watch that either this month or in October.

Well, it's a double this month. Or triple if you want to try to track down some of the director's other films. Unless the film's IMDb score raises up by 0.1 points, that is. I haven't read the book, but it is not meant to be a particularly faithful adaptation. Thought the film was pretty decent for what it is.

Koontz actually removed himself from Hollywood for many years because he hated one of the films based on his work so much - 1998's Phantoms which I thought was rather amusing. But Koontz is from what I can tell a very Trump-like narcissistic asshole so if anything I'd be more likely to believe the opposite of whatever he says. To be fair none of the films I've seen have really been great, but then none of his books are great either and the best one IMO, Lightning, which could make a pretty cool movie, hasn't been adapted and probably never will be.

Ever watch a movie you are too embarrassed to admit to so 1) you dont post it here for a contest and 2) when you "check" it you will do it in a bulk import to hide the fact you checked it.

An energetic horror-comedy. The film comes with some nice satiric touches as the lead's family are devout Satan worshippers who take their church sermons just as seriously as the most pious Christians. More time could have in fact been dedicated to exploring this alternate look at a religious upbringing before everything becomes a chase thriller, but it is an enjoyable ride throughout thanks to the amazing chemistry between the leads.

American actress Kathleen Beller (who got her start in a bit part in The Godfather Part II of all things...it did not lead up from there) plays Kate, a young woman searching for her father, who disappeared weeks ago around the cabin he lives in in the north woods. She goes with a group of friends - her rather wussy boyfriend Joe, total asshole photographer David, and David's hippie-ish yet totally scared of the outdoors and prone to crying girlfriend Anna - and they go on the search, which delves briefly into something like Deliverance territory but is mostly just boring, and only worth seeing at all if you, like me, admire the beauty of Ms. Beller, who gets naked a couple of times. Some nice scenery I guess but, again, terrible VHS quality so I'm not sure if the visuals would make this more worthwhile in HD. Apart from Kate, all of the characters are so annoying and worthless that I'd have probably turned it off if I were the kind of person who turns things off.

Image

Retitled Ghost Cat in some places and given a horror cover, this is actually closer to a family comedy, but the laughs are minimal and the cat actually does very little to foil the one dimensional baddies. The film's mythology feels random too; sometimes the cat can be seen by one or more characters, while at other times it is completely invisible. A young Ellen Page looks great with long hair though and a wintery Charlottetown looks beautiful.

Image

Raised alongside Sioux children, a half-Sioux army captain is sent to quell a possible Sioux uprising in this western. The story feels pretty insubstantial, even for a brief feature like this. There is also a lot more talk than action, and what action exists is hardly impressive (a silent arm wrestling match sticks out). The protagonist becoming drawn between supporting his army and fighting for his Sioux "blood brothers" is interesting but hardly the focus.

This was a huge amount of fun, and gets the 10/10 from me. Thanks for the recommendation. A literalist take on ancient egyptian texts, that makes Proyas the true successor to de Mille. You can see that it's a passion project, a visionary piece of work.

1. The Funhouse Massacre (Palmer, 2015) Rating: 5.2 3/10
2. Leprechaun 2 (Flender, 1994) Rating: 4.6 4/10
3. Merlin: The Return (Matthews, 2000) Rating: 3.4
Despite the production values looking like they would be unacceptable for children's TV this somehow got a wide release, probably off the back of starring Rik Mayall -- he's the only actor in this who actually makes an effort. The film itself is a collection of half-baked fantasy tropes with no sense of logic and where important parts of the plot seem to be missing. A lot of the first half is unintentionally funny, but towards the end the amusement wears off and by the final battle it had become dull.
4/10

4. A Good Day to Die Hard (Moore, 2013) Rating: 5.3
This dour and invulnerable John McClane seen here is more like the Terminator than the character seen in the original Die Hard. It has some expensive and destructive action, but there's also a long, boring stretch between the mid-point setpiece and the finale where no action takes place.

q. Flux (Hinton, 2002) [7 mins] Rating: 5.1

A mix of some unimpressive early films and experimental films. Our Lady of the Sphere and Flux were the best of these as they have a strong sense of style, but I wouldn't really call either of them good. Visions of Ecstasy has a place in history as the only film banned in the UK for blasphemy, but it's actually boring and unshocking -- a woman dresses as a nun writhes around for 15 minutes and caresses a guy dressed as Jesus and it's all edited like a music video.

Image

Three tales of human beings doing terrible things to one another are strung together in this horror anthology. Each tale is more twisted than it seems, and with the same writer and director behind all three, the quality is more consistent than the average horror anthology. The wraparound segment is well done too. The third tale has the niftiest plot developments of three. It is very hard to see where the third episode is going from where it starts.

14. Knock Knock (2015) 4.9 on IMDb

Image

This begins well with loads of tension and uncertainty as to whether the film will go down a Fatal Attraction path. Alas, it reaches its craziest and most satiric halfway in, resulting in the second of the half feeling like aimless scenes of the women going berserk. Without giving too much away, it actually becomes a lot like Hard Candy for a new generation, except that the girls here seemingly select their victim at random and are only doing it for fun.

A film about an undercover cop who uses various booby traps and homemade inventions as he tries to rescue his sister from hillbilly kidnappers. This has been described as MacGyver meets Deliverance on Letterboxd, which is actually pretty accurate, although there are lots of very ordinary fights in between the moments of ingenuity. The post-climax final scene at least is really funny though, even if it feels tagged-on and unaligned with the story.

There are some memorable bits and pieces here, including a chainsaw scene (but that does not occur until an hour in) and a part where one of the women lights her bikini top on fire, but this is a weird genre blend that never feels right. Ostensibly, it is a backwoods brutality horror film with two former prostitutes harassed by local rednecks. What this actually amounts to though is repeated acts of attempted murder that are closer to a comedy.

AVERAGE IMDb RATING SO FAR: 76.6 ÷ 16 = 4.79 / 10

This has an intriguing premise, but played as a comedy rather than a drama, all pseudoscience is shied over and there is lots of goofiness, yet precious few moments of Arnie grappling with what is happening to him and ethical questions. At the film's lamest, Arnie dresses in drag and puts on a female voice for a very long stretch. This is never an especially funny film at all beyond the first scene in which Ivan Reitman parodies his own Ghost Busters.
