    • Well, with more than a week and a half of movie watching since the board went down (plus some older posts seeming to be deleted or something), I have a backlog. In the meantime, I'll move some around to spread out the cinema:

      Brahms: The Boy II (2020)

      "I think we're gonna like it here Brahms as long as they follow the rules."

      Completely changes the original, but watchable.

      [Rifftrax:] Santa's Summer House (2012/2018)

      "The movie went to heaven . . . which surprised everyone."

      • All caught up on Hawkeye. Rough start but picked up well

        • Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021)

          "Yeah, I know how many sides are on a triangle.
          - I know, I just thought you were being obtuse."

          Free Enterprise (1998)

          "Maybe she's like Catherine Tremell in Basic Instinct, you know? One day she's just going to plunge an ice pick into his nose.
          -He'd probably enjoy that. Killed by a naked blonde who doesn't wear underwear to the strains of a Jerry Goldsmith score. Come to think of it, I'd sort of dig that myself."

          A kind of more mature cinematic version of Big Bang Theory long before that series.

            I absolutely loved this film.

            • Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021)

              "He gave his figurehead the name of a chicken dish."

              Black Widow (2021)

              "Okay, you got a plan, or shall I just stay, duck, and cover?
              -My plan was to drive us away!
              It's a s**t plan."

              Another one I saw during my Disney+ subscription. Didn't bowl me over, but it was entertaining and I could see picking up a copy if it were on sale.

              The Wolf Man (1941)

              "The way you walked was thorny though no fault of your own, but as the rain enters the soil, the river enters the sea, so tears run to a predestined end. Now you will have peace for eternity."

              Re-watched my favorite of the Universal horrors for its 80th anniversary.

              A Christmas Carol (1982)

              "Tact is a quality I despise.
              -That I can see."

              Inside Out (2015)

              "It's long term memory. You'll get lost in there.
              -C'mon! Think positive!
              Okay . . . I'm positive that you'll get lost in there!"

              One of the Pixar flicks I missed and now made up during my month of Disney+. Enjoyed this one. My favorite bits, though, were when they compared the feelings of the other people.

              I did not, but I didn't hate it. [SPOILERS] I just found it very slow and the third act repeating the threat (and most of the plot points) to the first movie was an odd choice. My mother (whom I went with while doing our annual Christmas shopping day) seemed to feel the same. I watched a couple Youtube reviews (Cereal at Midnight and Red Letter Media)--after the fact--that articulated the problems well, but I won't post them because I do see why people would like it and I have no wish to even try to change someone's mind.

              I did like the granddaughter and the little Stay Pufts were cute (though they did feel like a marketing gimmick). I also liked the modifications to Echo 1 (the gunner seat and RC trap).

              • Spiderman no way home. I recommend everyone stay off YouTube to avoid spoilers because legitimate clips are online. Now one of the scenes mid credits is dr strange multiverse of madness trailer. The real end credits scene people will love . My overall thoughts are i loved it. This was great action. Props to john watts for a fun accomplishment. Curious about his ff film. I give this a 9. Im really trying to not spoil anything so yea great film

                • A Christmas Carol (1999)

                  "It may be that in the sight of Heaven you are more worthless and less fit to live than millions, like this poor man's child. Oh God, to hear the insect on the leaf pronouncing there is too much life among his hungry brothers in the dust!"

                  Iron Man 3 (2013)

                  "Is that all you've got? A cheap trick and a cheesy one-liner?
                  -Sweetheart, that could be the name of my autobiography."

                  Last watch for my month of Disney+ because it's Christmas themed.

                  Something Wild (1986)

                  "I'm a rebel. I am! I just channelled my rebellion into the mainstream."

                  Excellent 80s black comedy from the director of Silence of the Lambs.

                  The Santa Clause 2 (2002)

                  "Uncle Scott, are you Santa Claus?
                  -What makes you say that?
                  Because you have a reindeer.
                  -Lots of people have reindeer.
                  Name five."

                  Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

                  "We've had one, yes. What about second breakfast?"

                  Re-watched with fam for the 20th anniversary.

                  • Easily the best of the sequels, this one even manages to make Revolutions retroactively better by shedding new light on its finale. It's not without its faults, of course, but aside from a mild wonkiness within the first act (before everything really begins to click) it's actually an incredibly solid follow up to the trilogy.

                    Superfluous? Sure. Worthwhile? Absolutely.

                    • Wolf of Snow Hollow (2020)

                      "I'm an **hole. Okay. I'll work on that."

                      Forrester's final movie and he plays an appropriate part. Follows an alcoholic deputy ready to take over for his too-long-on-the-job father when a series of deaths look like they could be from a crazy killer, a wolf, or something in between?

                      Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

                      "Kidnap the Sandy Claws, beat him with a stick, lock him up for ninety years, see what makes him tick."

                      It's a Wonderful Life (1946)

                      "Remember, George: no man is a failure who has friends."

                      Watched for the season and its 75th anniversary.

                      A Clockwork Orange (1971)

                      "Oh, it was gorgeousness and gorgeousity made flesh."

                      50th anniversary.

                      [Rifftrax Live:] Santa Claus (1959/2015)

                      "Grab a slice of instant diabetes, kids!"

                      I had read that it ignores 2 and 3. Was that wrong? Honestly, if it’s tied, I’d probably have to re-watch the movies. It’s been years.

                      • /\ You are the only person I know who would put It's a Wonderful Life in the same post as A Clockwork Orange, my friend. I can visualize you switching out the the first movie for the other and being like "it ain't no thang." LOL

                          It doesn't ignore anything from the previous films, and actually uses a lot of the things that happened in them to move its story forward. That said, you probably don't need to rewatch them before seeing it, either, as it explains pretty much everything it references in regards to the plot. It's a movie that relies on the previous films for its existence, but that doesn't really need them to have been seen to understand -- it just helps with character motivations and situational significance.

                          • Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: The Toy Maker (1991)

                            "I eat kids like you for breakfast! Which is why my s**t smells so bad in the morning."

                            I have all of the SNDN movies and always watch #1 during this season, but this sequel was the one I wanted to watch again this year. Ironically, it stars Mickey Rooney, who was one of the celebrities that joined the protesting mothers of 1984 to get the original banned from theaters.

                            Dirty Harry (1971)

                            "When a naked man is chasing a woman through a dark alley with a butcher knife and a hard on, I figure he isn't out collecting for the Red Cross.
                            -I think he's got a point."

                            Another 50th.

                            Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence (1983)

                            "They were a nation of anxious people. And they could do nothing individually. So they went mad, en masse."

                            Ha. I am eclectic enough to do that, but as it happened, I watched Fellowship of the Rings and A Clockwork Orange on the same day (Sunday) because it was the 20th anniversary of the former and the 50th of the latter. It's a Wonderful Life was the next day. I bunched these up because nobody was really posting in this thread (ideally I like to do one movie per post). I wrote them all down so I wouldn't forget.

                            • Fantastic dark rendition of the classic tale. On the surface it seems to turn it into a proper horror story, but within it amplifies the character study. Some changes are really clever, and I really liked the Tiny Tim situation. One change was really uncomfortable, but that was sort of the point, and it lends itself directly to the ending so it does work, but still. All in all, it's a unique take on the material for those who appreciate darker stories. It's probably my new favorite version, and may actually become one I watch annually.

                              • [Rifftrax:] Holiday Special (1978/2007)

                                "It was a risky thing to make a TV show that could only be enjoyed if your entire audience was as high as you were when you made it."

                                I continued my Christmas Eve double feature (the first with the fam, the second not), which fits Jeff's category of odd pairing:

                                A Christmas Carol (1951)

                                "They are Man's. This boy is Ignorance, this girl is Want. Beware them both, but most of all, beware this boy!"

                                Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984)

                                "You scared, ain't ya? You should be! Christmas Eve is the scariest damn night of the year!"

                                Is that the one from a couple years ago with Guy Pearce? I started watching that with my folks (we're Dickens fans and have seen most adaptations of ACC) and gave up by the end of the first scene with the kid pissing on Marley's grave. The stuff I heard (they finished it) about the rest of it just made me glad I made that choice. I really could go years and years without another "dark take" or "gritty spin" on a classic story. That's not to say I can't take dark stuff or even Christmas horror (see above), but nothing about the clips I saw or things I heard from that sounded appealing.
