  • Rifftrax: Highlander (1986/2011)

    "They both trained under the great master Benny Hill."

    Smokin' Aces (2006)

    "We are all dying."

    Green Lantern (2011)

    "What's with all the green?"

    Reading the first original GL graphic novel in years put me in the mood to watch this again.

      The Killer Shrews was produced by Ken Curtis, best known as the actor who played Festus on Gunsmoke. It made a lot of money for him, so I don't think he regretted it.

      • The Double (2011)

        "If the Russians used their women instead of missiles, we'd be wearing furry hats right now."

        Cherry, Harry & Raquel (1969)

        "Pity the poor pothead."

        Brief Encounter (1945)

        "The stars can change in their course, the universe go up in flames, and the world crash around us, but there will always be Donald Duck."

        David Lean helmed movie of a Noel Coward play about a housewife and a married doctor who meet as strangers at the same weekly train stop and eventually begin a once-a-week affair. Surprisingly frank discussion of an extra-marital affair, though of course not explicitly shown because it's still 1940s Britain.

        Voodoo Island (1957)

        "I haven't been close to a woman for a long time.
        -Let's keep it that way, shall we?"

        Yeah, they mention that on MST3K. It doesn't mean much to me since I've never seen more than a few minutes of the show.

        The same producer, director, writer team made Giant Gila Monster. It released the same day; so, I assume they distributed it as a double bill. GGM is a little better, imho, but there's a nostalgia factor--it's a favorite of my mother's and I grew up with it as family watching. But, hey, KS has James Best.

            "You did not really love her. You loved the idea of what you thought she was. An innocent. Someone whose purity could redeem you of your many sins."

            Day the World Ended (1955)

            Well, he does sing in The Searchers.

            • XXX: The Return of Xander Cage (2017)

              "Rock. Paper. Scissors. Grenade launcher."


              Vin Diesel is called back into action when Donnie Yen and Tony Jaa steal a device that can hijack satellites and use them as guided meteorites against anyone on Earth --- including Samuel "A Fucking Shark Ate Me!" Jackson. But little does he realize that there's more going on than it seems!

              This is pure popcorn stunt candy. The acting is pretty schlocky, purposefully so, the writing behind it is as ham-fisted as it gets, but the stunts and locales were solid, some of the outfits were nice, and there's a hilarious funeral.

              • Gamera vs. Viras (1968)

                "Do you smell something fishy in the air?"

                For the 50th anniversary (Mar. 20) of this fourth Gamera movie.

                Flash Gordon (1980)

                "If you had known anything about the true nature of the universe, anything at all, you would've hidden from it in terror."

                Zootopia (2016)

                "Life isn't some cartoon musical where you sing a little song and all your insipid dreams magically come true. So let it go."

                Life Itself (2014)

                "Look at a movie that a lot of people love and you'll find something profound no matter how silly the film may seem."

                Excellent biography.

                  • Dracula Untold (2014)

                    "Men don't fear swords. They fear monsters."

                    [Lamotta:] The Bronx Bull (2016)

                    "What the f**k do these women see in him?"

                    The lesser-known bio-pic of Jake Lamotta. Not great, but not bad.

                    And a couple Irish movies for SPD:

                    Waking Ned Devine (1998)

                    "The words that are spoken at a funeral are spoken too late for the man who is dead. What a wonderful thing it would be to visit your own funeral. To sit at the front and hear what was said, maybe say a few things yourself."

                    The Hallow (2015)

                    "Hallow be their name and blessed be their claim."

                    This would not be a good choice for parents of a newborn.

                          • Untraceable (2008)

                            "What's he into?
                            -High-end tech and low-end porn.
                            You sure he's a guy? If it's a woman, she could be my soulmate."

                            I think I've seen this before (at least Netflix sent it to my house when it was still new, but I'm not sure I was the one who watched it). Pretty cool concept (people's viewership of a serial killer's web site enables the killing).


                            Abby (1974)

                            "Whaddya think of my powers now?
                            -Not very much!

                            The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension (1984)

                            "You can check your anatomy all you want, and even though there may be normal variation, when it comes right down to it, this far inside the head it all looks the same. No, no, no, don't tug on that. You never know what it might be attached to."

                            I know I've mentioned it before, but this is truly one of my favorite movies (like top 10). I was glad in high school to find out a teacher I was friends with dug it as much as I do.

                            3000 Miles to Graceland (2001)

                            "What's great about dating homeless girls?
                            -What?
                            You can drop them off anywhere."

                            • So when I visited my dad on Saturday, he was watching the end of Dragonslayer (1981). Brought back a ton of memories because I used to love watching that film as a kid. I think I bought it as a gift for my dad a while back, dunno if he actually has it still or if I imagined I got it for him.

                              We also watched a bit of Murder on the Orient Express (1974). Dad immediately recognized John Gielgud and suspected Connery; I looked up the cast and saw some big names.

                                "Pray for the best, but prepare for the worst."

                                Wow, this movie was so good. It's funny that I can watch the goriest horror movie, but this one was truly disturbing.

                                Me too. Then I remember seeing it years later and thinking "hey, that's the guy who released the baddie in Ghostbusters 2!" It's a shame he became primarily a goofy character actor (though he's good at it) because he was a good reluctant hero in that. It's been a while since I've seen it. I need to pick up a copy.
