I just watched a film I didn't know even existed until I spotted it on the shelves of the public library a few days ago. It is called "The Spirit Is Willing". It's a 1967 film which mixes light horror elements and comedy, even slapstick at times. It was produced and directed by a recognizable name though, William Castle. It had a pretty silly ghost story but it was good enough. Fun Saturday discovery!

I just had a first time watch of "Porky's", which turned 35 years old two days ago. I've known of this film for a while but never got around to see it. Now that I've seen it, my conclusion is that I haven't missed much all this time. There were some slightly funny situations but the film mostly failed to keep me interested and make me laugh. One thing I didn't know that surprised me was that this film was written and directed by Bob Clark, who directed the slasher classic "Black Christmas".

Scotch makes a great point.

Trust me, Porky's--in its time--was hysterically funny the same way that American Pie was in its time.

Do you know what else is a little funny? The same Bob Clark who did Porky's and Black Christmas also did A Christmas Story.

I loved it when I caught it in theaters , but I think that was the last time I saw it.

I remember really enjoying it and I was born way after it came out but I was also a kid then.

I caught "Goon: Last of the Enforcers" earlier this afternoon. It wasn't bad but I have to admit I was a little bit let down. It was a more serious story if you will and it didn't make me laugh as much as the first film. There were still some funny things to hear or see but I felt they were fewer and further apart. Nothing really hilarious either. The hockey scenes were still pretty cool, blood flows ridiculously and some teeth were probably lost. The returning cast is fine again for this kind of flick and newcomer Wyatt Russell is a scary nutjob of a goon. There are some fun hockey cameos too, with probably my favorite joke of the film aimed at ex-NHLer George Parros. I wanted to like this sequel better but unfortunately, it was only good. If you haven't seen it yet and hockey is your thing, I'd say catch a matinee when admission is cheaper.

Comedy sequels are tough to do. Damned if you repeat the jokes from the first film, damned if you try to change too much from the original. Too bad it was a let down, but the first one was such a surprise I guess there really wasn't anywhere else to go with the story.

that's too bad . I was really looking forward to it . I'll probably catch it next week on cheap night.

Thank you for the Goon: Last of the Enforcers review. I shall know what to expect when the movie reaches here.

I just had a first time watch of "My Cousin Vinny", which actually turned 25 years old last Monday, March 13th. I thought it was a great and fun courtroom comedy. Glad I finally watched it!

Time for a rewatch of "Goon", both in English and French dub, before I catch the sequel in the next few days.

@jimmy I suppose it will come out in the States soon, maybe next month. I just read the first film followed a similar patern.

I just had a first time watch of Ethan and Joel Coen's "Raising Arizona", which had a limited release in theaters thirty years ago today. It was a great, crazy and pretty damn funny comedy! Nic Cage and Holly Hunter were great. And I had no idea John Goodman was in this (never saw him so young either) and didn't recognize his partner William Forsythe but they were hilarious. Glad I finally watched this!

Raising Arizona must be funny. A person can see it one hundred times and still laugh.

So I just finished the "Lethal Weapon" first time marathon I started last Monday. I had the fourth film left to watch. I thought it was just as fun and entertaining as the others.
Pat Hatfreet updated his STATUS: 15 days ago

Just got home from a screening of "Kong: Skull Island". It was just an entertaining action film. It has some very good looking action sequences and great visual effects. The story is kinda predictable but I didn't mind. Samuel L. Jackson and John C. Reilly are worth the price of admission alone but everyone does a great job. I had a good time! For your information, there is a minute-long post-credit scene that offers a brief look at things to come in this MonsterVerse.

For the kick of it, I just watched "Private Parts", that biographical film or whatever about Howard Stern. I often saw the DVD on store shelves and noticed the film was released twenty years ago today so I thought what the hell and borrowed it from the public library. It was interesting I guess for someone who knows the guy but who's really not familiar with whatever he ever did.

Private Parts had more weight back in Howard Stern's heyday. However, the film is still funny and interesting now.

Finally had time to see "Get Out" this afternoon. I thought it was a solid thriller with a few good surprising bits and comedic elements hidden in its sleeves. I'm not really familiar with Jordan Peele's comedy work with Keegan-Michael Key but I'll sure be on the lookout if he puts out other great thriller/horror material like "Get Out", his first film as a director. The actors all did a great job too. If you haven't seen this film yet, you should definitely get out of the house and go see it.

I just finished watching the first three "Lethal Weapon" films for basically the first time. The first film turned thirty years old yesterday (Monday). I wish I could have watched the four films the same day but the last one wasn't available when I borrowed the others so I'll watch it as soon as it returns to the library. In short, I had fun with all of them. Can't go wrong with the amount of action and comedy in them. Glad I finally watched them!

I was three and a half years old when, thirty years ago, on March 6th, 1987, "Lethal Weapon" was released in theaters. I know the franchise, I've probably seen bits and pieces of the films on TV when I was younger but I don't recall a single thing about them. That's why my plan for today is to watch the original trilogy for the first time to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the original film. The third film turns twenty-five in May too so it's a good time. I will then watch the fourth film at a later date because it was not available to borrow from the library when I borrowed the others last Saturday. Let's do this.

I had another first time watch tonight. This time, it was the 1992 sci-fi flick "The Lawnmower Man", starring Pierce Brosnan and Jeff Fahey. A young Dean Norris also appears in the film and with a good eye, you can see Doug Hutchison for about four seconds. I've been aware of this movie for a while and since it was released twenty-five years ago tomorrow, March 6th, I figured it was time to check it out. Man, this is one batshit crazy movie! I watched it all but I can't say I enjoyed it or cared for it. The melodramatic score also got on my nerves. I won't be buying the upcoming Collector's Edition Blu-ray from Scream Factory, that's for sure.

Fun fact: I just found out that one of the two companies involved in the creation of CGI effects (visual elements like what you see in the GIF above I suppose), Angel Studios, Inc., became Rockstar San Diego in 2003.

grelber37
grelber37 at 07:23 AM Mar 06

The Lawnmower Man is a big-budget B-movie in many ways. However, I shall say that it did blow our drunken minds back in the college dorm back in the mid-90s. 'Tis batshit shit, as you note.

I was just thinking, oh the irony it would be to watch this movie on one of the consumer VR headsets commonly available today. Now that we've got actual real virtual reality tech, the stuff depicted here might seem pretty goofy I'd imagine.

Even crazier, the sequel which I've still never seen replaced Jeff Fahey with Max Headroom.

I just had a first time watch of "Angel Heart", a 1987 crime/thriller film starring Mickey Rourke with his old face, Robert De Niro and Lisa Bonet. The film actually turns thirty years old tomorrow, March 6th. This is a film I didn't even know existed until very recently. I thought it was interesting. I liked the mystery behind the story even if the reveal was a bit confusing. I also thought Rourke did a pretty good job. Glad I watched it.
grelber37
grelber37 at 07:31 AM Mar 06

You might know this. But, Angel Heart was controversial upon release. For one thing, it is very violent film. For another, audiences saw sitcom darling Lisa Bonet in a un-family-friendly way. Bill Cosby had the damn nerve to criticize her.
