New Year's Evil
16 days ago via Flixster
½

A strange killer and numerous deaths, all timed to coincide with the New Year rolling over in different time zones, this one features an interesting ticking clock element that some slashers of the era lack. I will say that I was slightly let down that they ultimately leave it open for a sequel that never happens, as I would have preferred a more definitive 'one and done' vibe from it.

Well worth a rental for the New Year.

The Brood
The Brood (1979)
16 days ago via Flixster

Early Cronenberg is always worth re-visiting, so I decided to dig into this one during my recent Halloween marathon.

The bits with the Brood themselves are truly unsettling, as you don't really know what is happening for the first half of the film, and once the reveals happen, the reality of it all kinda makes it worse than not knowing what these creatures really are.

Great unsettling work from a man I'd like to see return to the genre at some point.

Well worth a rental.

Come Back to the 5 & Dime Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean
16 days ago via Flixster
½

The setting is a small town store, and while it feels very stage-bound (due to being based on a play), the characters and scenes really shine, with a reunion for a Jimmy Dean fan club being the catalyst for all the action, dredging up memories long hidden or forgotten.

A very charming character piece from start to finish, and well worth tracking down if you have the chance.

The Myth Of The American Sleepover
16 days ago via Flixster

This is a fun coming of age story, with no weird switcheroo bits of some sad shit happening, just the wistful, elusive feeling of chasing a girl on that last night of summer, the little parties, the little cliques, etc., all the stuff that makes up a small town growing up experience.

Well worth tracking down, while it's not going to change your life, it's a solid way to spend an hour and a half.

Recommended.

Eyes Wide Shut

Okay, so I originally kinda shit-canned this one when I first saw it ages ago on video, but I have had to reassess in recent months. The film isn't bad, but it's not *that good* either - the most intriguing thing I got out of it the second go 'round was the house porn of all the super sexy mansions and expensive Manhattan apartments, which looked amazing.

Yeah, there's a lot of fun nudity, but after awhile it hits a saturation point that makes it hard to find that stuff interesting, and then you're left with a boring fairly loveless marriage that's not all that interesting, to be perfectly honest.

It's worth a rental for a bit of further observation, but it's still far from my favorite Kubrick film.
