25. Nintendo Quest (2015, 56 Checks)
This is a documentary about a guy on a quest to collect all 678 North-American-released original NES games in 30 days. No online shopping. It was kinda cool to talk old school Nintendo and hear about the rarity of the games. I still play mine quite often. But as a film, it was meh - I enjoyed the story enough, but it didn't really move me.
I don't know about you, but Nintendo Quest made me wanna go out and find rare Nintendo games.
I mean, I don't want to spend the money on rare ones, but I definitely want to go out and get more of the commons. Like stop by pawn shops and pick some up (and hope I get lucky).
Well yea. I'm always about the deal. But that's how I got Panic Restaurant, one of the top 10 rarest. It was $3 in a pawn shop. I would definitely not go fork over thousands or even hundreds for something like stadium events or little Samson.

Nice find! By chance, do you happen to know what app they were using to track the set?

If not a patch on the best of the British comedy series, this pioneer Carry On film makes for decent viewing when considered on its own. There are some particularly funny moments involving a newlywed recruit who constantly has trouble explaining his situation to others. The camerawork is quite innovative too with a remarkable pullback along a countertop (twice). The plot is very fragmented and episodic, but this is okay fun while it lasts.

7. Pauline & Paulette (2001)

322 checks

Little personal drama about an elderly mentally disabled Belgian woman who's sister, who took care of her, suddenly dies. Now her other two sisters have to take over, but they are not willing to do so. There's not much development, except for the obvious, but the movie has a nice flow and the leading character has enough charm to conquer my heart. 7/10

Little fun fact, parts of the movie have been filmed in my home town in a mental institution, a few hundred metres from where i live :)
I almost forgot about that movie, i've seen it once but it's been ages, i can't remember much of it. Gonna have to watch it again now i guess :)

One of the weaker Carry On movies, this entry carries over most of the lively cast from the first film, yet confines them to hospital beds, leading to the occasional good dialogue exchange but very few elaborate gag scenes. It is not until the final 15 minutes that the comedy properly kicks in gear as the patients sneak out of their beds, but by then it is a little late to care. Wilfrid Hyde-White and Leslie Phillips make nice cast additions though.

I mean, I don't want to spend the money on rare ones, but I definitely want to go out and get more of the commons. Like stop by pawn shops and pick some up (and hope I get lucky).
Well yea. I'm always about the deal. But that's how I got Panic Restaurant, one of the top 10 rarest. It was $3 in a pawn shop. I would definitely not go fork over thousands or even hundreds for something like stadium events or little Samson.
Nice find! By chance, do you happen to know what app they were using to track the set?
Not sure. I've found a few different ones on the Play Store that work for that purpose. There was one in particular that specifically tracked NES games with full box art and details and everything that I can't remember the name of now.

7. Pauline & Paulette (2001)

322 checks

Little personal drama about an elderly mentally disabled Belgian woman who's sister, who took care of her, suddenly dies. Now her other two sisters have to take over, but they are not willing to do so. There's not much development, except for the obvious, but the movie has a nice flow and the leading character has enough charm to conquer my heart. 7/10
Little fun fact, parts of the movie have been filmed in my home town in a mental institution, a few hundred metres from where i live :)
I almost forgot about that movie, i've seen it once but it's been ages, i can't remember much of it. Gonna have to watch it again now i guess :)
Oh that's cool!

I also liked the movie, and probably would have written the exact review joachimt did.

8. Soul Power (2008)

135 checks

Documentary about a music festival held in Africa with the legendary boxing match between Muhammed Ali and George Forman. It has a lot of interesting concert footage. It's a shame the documentary-part is very little. There are a few cases where musicians are asked what it means for them to play in Africa. Unfortunately the whole issue of black vs white, roots in Africa etc... isn't explored further, so what's left is just some great concert footage and some scenes with Ali, which are always a joy to watch. 6/10

Carry On Nurse is my least favourite of the films that I have seen from the series. That said, I have only seen the first three and maybe half a dozen others so far. It was my intention this month to watch the entire the series and plug in all those gaps. I don't know if I will able to do so with only two weeks now left, but other than Cowboy (which I watched for the Westerns Challenge in May), I would like to get through everything that I own - and I'm pretty sure that I have them all - other than Follow That Camel - across two or three DVD collections. Not seen Cabby before.

Less episodic and with more plot than the previous entries, this still stacks up as the best of the first three Carry Ons. The performances are energetic all round and the central dynamic is interesting with the students here trying to sabotage their headmaster's chance of a promotion elsewhere, only to inadvertently impress the outsiders visiting their school. The wordplay is better here than the elaborate practical jokes, but this is amusing stuff.

I have a box set of the first twelve movies:

I have the rest as singular DVDs that I purchased altogether in one lot (probably from eBay years ago). It was only as I was sorting it through it last night that I realised that Follow That Camel appears to be missing. There might be others missing too, but I'll cross that bridge when I get far enough along in the series.

While Cary Grant being so calm about his wife's infidelity here never clicks, it is refreshingly different how he chooses to toy with the extramarital lovers in a very prim English manner, rather than fight it out. This approach does, however, lead to the film being dialogue-heavy, with not even the occasional bit of innovative Day/Hudson split screen really enlivening the material. The movie also carries on for far too long after a duel highlight.

Very disappointed; more or less 2018's Shoplifters family barging in on a wealthy family everyday life. It is solid direction, sometimes funny but incredibly shallow and unoriginal. Must be 5 five years in a row Cannes festival is failing to reward a film wich is meaningful in both thematic and cinematic terms.

Story doesn't make sense. Supporting cast can't act. Too long, of course, because it's Bollywood. Overall a drag to get through. 4/10
Can't believe this used to be on TSPDT.

11. The Dummy (1995) - 3 Checks
Weird, homemade slasher with subpar acting and too dark and grainy footage. Has a high body count but uninventive kills. At least the dummy is somewhat scary.

12. Morris County (2009) - 2 Checks
A gut-punching insight into the lives of three individual people that hits right in the feels. Good acting all around, especially Alice Cannon as Iris shines with her absurdly natural acting. Darcy Miller also gives everything she's got in her role as troubled teen girl Ellie, the protagonist of the movie's first story. The second story about a middle-class Jewish family, whose facade of a perfect life begins to crumble, pales in comparison to the other two but still manages to keep the viewer's attention. Especially the ending may be a shocker for some.

32-34. Free Meek (2019, 1 Check)
Free Meek: Two Americas
Free Meek: The Trap
Free Meek: Under Her Thumb
Free Meek: Filthadelphia
Free Meek: Free, Not Free

This is a new Docuseries on Amazon Prime. It's about the rapper Meek Mill and how he was arrested, sent to prison, and spent over 10 years on probation. But what it's REALLY about is the probation system in the US and how it can fuck people over and how it puts people entirely under the control of the system and potentially weird judges in particular. The series is fascinating - I knew just a bit about Meek Mill himself, and almost nothing about the probation system and learned a ton. Definitely recommended for anyone interested in social justice issues in the USA.

[logistics: 5 episodes with run time all over the place. Two ~45m, and three range from 33-38m. Hence 3 points. But I'm saving the 38m episode for an upcoming block of shorts.]

35. That 70's Girl (2003, 1 Check)
I stumbled into a rabbit hole of erotic parodies, and had to check this one out, since I used to watch That 70s Show. Turns out, not really a parody of that. But it did have the heartwarming moral that nothing loosens up an uptight woman like pot and lesbian sex. So there's that. :turned:
