The Disaster Artist - Wasn't for me. It felt like it wanted to poke fun at the guy but not enough to laugh at him. And not taking itself seriously enough to add any drama to it. There was zero drama in this and the only time I laughed was if Seth Rogen said an offhand joke.

The Strangers (2008)

"Are you a sinner?"

I feel like I don't get the point of this movie. I kept waiting for some kind of twist, but it pretty much ends like it looks like it's going to end from the start of the threat and you learn any motivation from the baddies (you could say that's the point, but that angle has been done many times).

The Foreigner - This was a different kind of role for Jackie Chan. It wasn't great, yet I still enjoyed it.

MST3K: Merlin's Shop of Magical Wonders (1996/1999)

"I'm Bob Jackass."

I was still in a mistie mood, so I decided to re-watch what's probably my favorite episode.

The Creature Walks Among Us (1956)

I'll give a full review tomorrow, it's getting a little late and today was a total drag.

The Train (1964)

"I won't waste lives on paintings.
-They wouldn't be wasted! Excuse me, I know that's a terrible thing to say. But those paintings are part of France. The Germans want to take them away. They've taken our land, our food, they live in our houses, and now they're trying to take our art. This beauty, this vision of life, born out of France, our special vision, our trust."

By the same guy who directed The Manchurian Candidate. Follows some French Resistance (including Burt Lancaster) trying to stop a Nazi train (under the leadership of Paul Scofield of A Man for All Seasons fame) of stolen art. I found it difficult to figure out exactly what their plan was and if they were really trying to save the art, but I think maybe that was supposed to be (that dilemma is crucial to the third act). Liked, but didn't love it. Good model work. Thankfully, they did not do crumby French and German accents.

Jeanne "Hollywood" Basone is still wrestling for small promotions. She also does private session with fans in which she puts head scissors on them and stuff like that.

MST3K: Escape 2000 [aka Escape from the Bronx] (1985/1996)

Yeah, they mentioned something like that in the quick screen recap at the end. Good for her. I didn't watch GLOW regularly (that I recall, anyway), but this was still interesting just as a fan of 80s wrestling in general.

The Reaping (2007)

"Are you here for my girl? Are you gonna kill my baby girl?
-What? No!
Why not?"

Another about-to-expire movie on Netflix. Alright Bible-inspired horror, much of it predictable.

MST3K: The Skydivers (1963/1994)

"Seems like they forgot to have things happen in this movie."

Pound of Flesh (2015)

"What I'm really good at is killing people."

Not bad for a modern Van Damme flick.

Selma (2014)

"There is no Negro problem. There is no Southern problem. There is no Northern problem. There is only an American problem."

Watched Dracula's Daughter (1936) just now, I'll give my thoughts on it later.

Feel like watching a Mummy flick, so I'll pop in The Mummy's Hand (1940).


edit -- Watched Mummy's Hand, I'll give proper reviews of that and Daughter tomorrow.

Death Wish V: The Face of Death (1994)

"I ain't saying sh*t!
-Ah now, Reggie, you know d*mn well if you don't say 'sh*t,' you'll lose 90% of your vocabulary."

Ah, the late, great Charles Bronson and the late, great Michael Parks.

Wizards (1977)

"We'll eat alone, lest we sit with fools."

Wacky but good. What else can you expect from the guy who did Fritz the Cat and the animated Lord of the Rings movie?

Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)

"We didn't come here to fight monsters. We're not equipped for it."

Felt like watching this again (and probably the sequels soon) after Agent's recent reviews. It also put me in the mood for river-boat adventure movies, so I'm watching Anaconda again as I post this.


MST3K: Code Name: Diamond Head (1977/1994)

"Is it just me or did nothing happen?"
