Just finished watching Candyman and have now started Murder Rock.

Candyman is such a classy film. I read Barker's The Forbidden, the story it's based on, last week and I love how Bernard Rose managed to be completely faithful to the source material and yet create a whole new story (and backstory!). No wonder Barker executive produced the film.

And Murder Rock ... well, I think this must be one of the greatest films ever made. Everything about it it so ridiculous and amazing. I'm going to blast "Streets to Blame" at my party tonight, see how the crowd reacts. Not that any other reaction than total love and admiration is imaginable ...

I still haven't brought myself to finish Ghost Story the movie yet. I don't think I ever will, to be honest. It has got to be one of the most miscalculated films I've ever seen. Nothing works in it.

From the Director of Sleepaway Camp 2 & 3 comes .... Funland. I wasn't very impressed by this unfunny comedy. In fact, it was a bit of a bore.

I watched Not Of This Earth (with Traci Lords) and The Howling II: Your Sister Is a Werewolf. Great night.

The recent Prom Night poll inspired me to watch the original again. This is one of those films that I saw in the 80's but then never saw again until recently. Today was probably only the third or fourth time I've ever seen it. Which for an 80's slasher flick, is pretty low for me.

Anyway, this is really a great film that gets better every time I watch it. The phone calls are creepy, the score is excellent, and it keeps me glued to the screen, especially during the first hour even though there are no real killings going on. I'm really getting a newfound respect for this one.

And is it just me, or is Jamie Lee Curtis especially beautiful in this flick?

Decided for a "cheese" double feature so I went with two films I haven't watched in a while: Girls Nite Out & Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III.

Haha, definitely. It needs a little more Hal Holbrook but it's still a fun watch.

Watched Chaos today. Waste of money, IMO. The pacing is pretty quick, it's got that dude that played Waingro in Heat plus Stallone's kid, there's some "controversial" graphic scenes and... That's it.

If you're looking for a hearty laugh, I recommend fast forwarding to the last 2-3 minutes. It'll make you bust a gut for sure.

I watched Rush Hour 3 last night and boy did it SUCK HARD!

Worst movie of 2007 easily. No story, I didn't laugh once (they even pull out some unjustified/unneeded racial jokes), and when it ended it left me thinking "That's it!!!??!?"

NO STARS! out of 5.

Avoid at all costs!

Did Chris Tucker make sure to do a Michael Jackson dance/impression in it?

In the very beginning of the movie.

Real Genius (1985)

I'm pretty sure I saw this a long time ago, but I didn't remember any of it, so I'm counting it as a first-time viewing. I certainly did not remember that Lazlo is The Wolf Man in The Monster Squad (and the uncle in Napoleon Dynamite), nor did I remember that Susan is also the Marquis de Sade-obsessed virgin in Waxwork. Nice.

This was a really fun movie, and it made me wish Kilmer did more comedies. Or...more movies.

And I think it had about 2.5 montages. And it promoted cheating.

Good stuff.
