  • Rifftrax Live: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964/2014)

    "I'll miss you, friends/kidnappers."

    Boyz n the Hood (1991)

    "I started thinking, man, either they don't know, don't show, or don't care about what's going on in the hood."

      • Stake Land II: The Stakelander (2016)

        "Dyin' ain't much of a plan."

        Directed by John Ford (1971/2006)

        "Family is protection against the world and he understands this."

        In 1969 then-young filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich interviewed the classic and prolific director John Ford along with several of his collaborators. In 1971, it had a premier and a TV showing, but then was pulled until he added new interviews and re-edited it in 2006. Interesting look at the man's work and themes. The original parts are narrated by Orson Welles.

          I loved the first three minutes and hated everything after that with a passion. Myers' second-worst movie, but only because he also made The Guru.

          • Skyscraper (2018)

            "If you can't fix it with duct tape, you ain't using enough duct tape."

            This was worth a watch, but predictable and didn't really add anything more than Towering Inferno + Die Hard.

            The Men Who Made the Movies: Howard Hawks (2007)

            "I don't want to analyze it too much because I've seen too many people that are ruined."

            There's a part of me that just gets irritated at all three and their lowest-common-denominator humor, but I find something in each I like and certain parts that really parody Bond well. Honestly, even thinking about it now, #3 is probably not my favorite, but it was the only first-time view.

              • License to Kill (1989)

                "We're not a country club, 007!"

                Get Carter (1971)

                "I never eat breakfast."

                This was good, but grittier and more amoral than I expected.

                • Seven Samurai (1954)

                  "What do you think of farmers? You think they're saints? Hah! They're foxy beasts! They say, "We've got no rice, we've no wheat. We've got nothing!" But they have! They have everything! Dig under the floors! Or search the barns! You'll find plenty! Beans, salt, rice, sake! Look in the valleys, they've got hidden warehouses! They pose as saints but are full of lies! If they smell a battle, they hunt the defeated! They're nothing but stingy, greedy, blubbering, foxy, and mean! God damn it all!"

                  This was an incredible feat for cinema, not just in Japan, but globally. All of the techniques that Kurosawa used to make the film give it this wonderful feel, beautifully shot and edited.

                  I can't say enough about the film really, but I have to say that Kyuzo (Seiji Miyaguchi) was probably my favorite, although I admit that Mifune's Kikuchiyo was very entertaining (guy had amazing talent and great lines), and Takashi Shimura (playing Kambei) was excellent (makes me even gladder Yul Brynner was cast as his successor).

                  It's hard for me to say this in a convincing manner, but I must admit that if I had to choose between this and Sword of Doom as my favorite, I would have to say Sword of Doom edges out Seven Samurai. Still enjoyed the hell out of this, though (aside from the disc skipping over one scene where some of the heroes die raiding the bandits, after the big fire scene).

                  • Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989)

                    "She may be a girl but she could still be useful."

                    Girls Slaves of Morgana Le Fay (1971)

                    "Only beauty and loyalty should rule the heart."

                    Sadly not as interesting or titillating as it sounds/looks. It was made on the cheap and shows. Some good themes (basically Faust+Circe's Island).

                    It really is amazing and it's impressive that for so long of a movie it's never really boring. I have the Criterion BD and started watching the features, but need to dive back into those. Just the story of how it was written (K and team rented some hotel rooms and just did that for days and days) is pretty cool.

                      • Wacko (1982)

                        "Poor Daddy's been under such a strain recently.
                        -If you ask me, he's acting like he just killed someone.
                        Mary! Your father's a doctor; he kills people every day."

                        From the same people who made Joysticks, but even worse. One interesting aspect is that it mocks slasher conventions very specifically by calling out things like walking alone in the dark almost fifteen years before Scream.

                        Machete (2010)

                        "I absolve you of all your sins. Now, get the f**k out!"

                        My Cinco de Mayo pick.

                            "Did you see it, the spyral?"

                            So so. Zoe Bell (who fortunately is the lead) is the main attraction.

                            Let alone Trejo, who is 74 and may say no to action films one of these days. #2 was disappointing (especially the over reliance on CGI), but I didn't hate it and I would definitely welcome #3.

                                My stepdad and I went to see this at the local AMC mostly to have a chance to see the Duke on the big screen.

                                Just because you use a silencer doesn't mean you're not a sniper."
