The producers behind both anthology films "The ABCs of Death" are coming back with another anthology film. This time, it is called "The Field Guide to Evil" and it will supposedly "unveil malevolent folktales that have captivated and frightened communities throughout history". I'm interested.

The ABCs producers are very good at getting foreign directors to tell their own tales.

I like the idea here , I just hope it's better executed than the ABC's films.

Even though there are still a few movies released in 2016 that I want to see, I decided to catch my first 2017 release this afternoon. I saw the South Korean crime/action movie "Master". It stars Byung-hun Lee who we saw last year in "The Magnificent Seven" or a few years ago in the outstanding "I Saw the Devil". The movie was good but it wasn't exactly what I was hoping for. During 143 minutes, the action is limited to three or four small scenes. The rest is mostly a financial thriller with a lot of money talk, cop investigation and characters double-crossing each other all the time. It got slightly confusing but I think I got the most of it.

On this first Saturday the 14th of the year (first of two), I decided to watch the 1981 horror comedy "Saturday the 14th". Did you know this movie even existed? I didn't. I found out about it last year on a FB group for movie collectors. This apparent cult film sells for a pretty penny since it is now OOP. I found a used DVD of it in the wild just last week for a reasonable price. How fitting! I wasn't expecting anything great and it wasn't anything great. It spoofs all sorts of ideas and monsters from classic horror films. There were a few fun sight gags and lines. In short, it's a fairly good bad movie that I don't need to keep. But I know exactly where to find a buyer. Fun fact: Jeffrey Tambor appears in this movie as a man interested by a house a family inherited.

I knew of this and the sequel but never saw it. I might give it a watch one day.

grelber37 at 05:48 AM Jan 15

Saturday the 14th is some funny stuff. Transylvania Twist is a similar rare video of similar quality. I am glad that you discovered this semi-forgotten horror-comedy.

timmyd at 08:14 PM Jan 16

I've got a VHS copy I dig out every once in a while.

I just had a first time watch of "The Relic", the 1997 creature feature film starring Tom Sizemore and Penelope Ann Miller. It was released on this day twenty years ago. I thought it was a pretty entertaining thriller! It's not perfect but I was never bored. The film features some great practical effects and creature designs from Stan Winston Studio. There are also some not-so-great visual effects but I'll give them a pass. Glad I finally saw this!
grelber37 at 08:41 AM Jan 11

The Relic might have some significance among genre films. I remember seeing it in the theater in 1997. After the show, fellow moviegoers and I mentioned being impressed that the script did not include a forced romance between the protagonists. Many genre films still did at that time. In subsequent years, I noticed that more and more genre films did not necessarily include sex and sexual tension in their screenplays. Perhaps, Hollywood became more politically-correct for awhile.

Glinda at 02:43 PM Jan 11

Oh man I forgot about this movie! I rented it years ago. I remember liking it but I need a re-watch.

timmyd at 07:47 PM Jan 11

surprisingly solid film.

I just had what I'm pretty sure was a first time watch of the 1992 movie "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle". I selected it for tonight's entertainment for two reasons. First, I noticed the film turns twenty-five years old tomorrow, January 10th and second, because it's a title that I vaguely knew but was pretty sure I had never seen it. Anyhow, I thought it was a good thriller. It was pretty easy to foresee what tricks the nutcase nanny was going to pull and which characters were going to intervene but I mostly went for it. There were also some cool moments of tension I enjoyed. Glad I took the time to see it.
Glinda at 02:56 PM Jan 11

One of my favorite thrillers ever. I love this one and saw it a couple times in the theater when it came out.

The little daughter grew up to be Mia on Californication - if you watch that.

WalkAway at 09:04 PM Jan 11

My lady and I were gonna watch that next since we just watched Single White Female!

Pat Hatfreet at 10:03 PM Jan 11

@Glinda I'm pretty sure I saw the name of the young actress, Madeline Zima, in a more recent movie or TV show but it was not "Californication", which I've never watched.

@WalkAway I hope you like it! "Single White Female" is on my watch list for later this year, closer to the 25th Anniversary in August.

I finally caught "Moana" in theater yesterday. I really liked it! The story was interesting. The movie was also beautifully animated and colorful and fun. I liked the voices of the two main characters by Auli'i Cravalho and Dwayne Johnson. I didn't expect The Rock to sing a little song! And by looking at IMDB, I just realized that Alan Tudyk did the "voice" for that stupid rooster! That's hilarious!
grelber37 at 03:47 PM Jan 06

Thank you for the good overview of Moana. The film should make a mighty-fine future rental.

I had a really miserable record for the last third of 2016 when it comes to see movies in theater. Between September 7th and December 31st, I only saw two movies at the cineplex. This is a shame because there are many movies I wanted to see. Because of work, I just didn't have the time or the will to go downtown on my rare days off to catch a movie. I took the first week of 2017 off to catch up on things so I'll try to check a few movies that are still on the big screen and maybe a few others that came out in limited release if they open in my neck of town this week.

Undoubtedly, many people hit the shopping mall to purchase last-minute gifts today. I didn't have to. Instead, I stayed home and watched a pretty appropriate flick this afternoon. I'm talking about the 1986 sci-fi horror film "Chopping Mall". It was a first time watch. It isn't a great movie but I thought it was a silly and fun enough low budget movie. The great Barbara Crampton appears in the film and Dick Miller has a cameo. Glad I finally saw it!
grelber37 at 03:13 AM Dec 25

Chopping Mall is fun and memorable.

Glinda at 09:41 PM Dec 25

Glad you had fun with it! I agree, not a great movie but it's fun.

Two weeks ago, on November 22nd, the 1991 comedy "The Addams Family" turned 25 years old. I didn't have time then but I finally rewatched it, along with "Addams Family Values", this afternoon for the first time in a long time. It was also the first time I watched them in English. I barely remembered anything from the films so it was a lot of fun to rediscover them. I thought they were really funny and macabre, with many great lines and visual gags. I have a slight preference for the first film but also liked the sequel. I'd be curious to check the original B&W TV series now.
grelber37 at 08:27 PM Dec 06

The Addams Family films were a lot of fun. Great cast led by an adept director.

Moviefreak2010 at 09:30 PM Dec 06

need to see. glad you enjoyed them

Glinda at 03:20 PM Dec 08

Nothing at all against the movies, but you really should check out the series Pat. It was better. Perhaps I'm biased since I grew up on it though.

Saturday morning movie: a first time watch of "Rocky". The movie turns forty years old today. I didn't know what to expect but I thought it was a good sports drama. In fact, I found out it's about 90% drama, 10% sports. To be honest, I didn't really connect with the drama. There were some interactions between characters that I found kind of strange but, still, I think I understand the merits of the story. I'm glad I took the time to finally watch this movie. Technically, what is a particular point of interest for me is that "Rocky" was the third film (second to be released in theaters) to use the Steadicam rig invented by Garrett Brown. For the past eight years, I've been working with a few men who had the privilege to be trained by Garrett Brown himself in the late 80's, helping them shoot Steadicam shots for TV shows and ensuring their safety while they walk around with this beautiful machine.

Yesterday, I headed back to the cineplex to catch Denis Villeneuve's new movie "Arrival". I really liked it! I will need another watch somewhere down the road to better understand it though. Still, it was pretty interesting to follow. The main revelation surprised me. I only realized what was going on a few seconds before they started explaining it. But I know the film is more than just this revelation, that's why I'll need to see it again. I'll watch it with subtitles next time to have a better chance of understanding the science terms. The actors all did a great job. Visually, the film was pretty awesome to look at. I noticed in the credits that the majority of the FX studios were based in the province of Quebec and at the same time, I managed to spot a few names of people I went to school with who worked on the effects. I can't say it's my favorite Villeneuve film but it is still a solid sci-fi drama.
Moviefreak2010 at 01:28 AM Nov 22

cool i want to see it glad you enjoyed it

YoshioKun13 at 07:08 AM Nov 22

I should really start checking this Villeneuve guy's movies out sometime

Being that he's the one doing BLADE RUNNER 2, sequel to only the greatest sci-fi film ever made

Glinda at 10:08 AM Nov 22

That is so cool that you know some of the people who worked on this movie! Glad you enjoyed it. I had a second watch over the weekend and loved it even more so than the first. I liked knowing what was going on from the beginning.

Yesterday afternoon, for the first time in a little over two months, I headed to the cineplex to catch a movie. I saw the most recent Marvel release, "Doctor Strange". I wasn't familiar with this guy at all before seeing the film but I guess I liked what I saw. It was pretty trippy visually. All of the film's mystical elements were a bit confusing but I think I got the most of it. I also liked the few comedic elements. It's not my favorite film of the MCU but I still had a good enough time.
grelber37 at 06:52 AM Nov 21

Many people report having a good-enough time with Dr. Strange.

The tin case edition of ED2 was my very first purchase and viewing of any of the series. I hadn't even watched the first Evil Dead yet. And the rest is geeky, geeky history.

ericodarko at 11:13 PM Nov 08

Nice stuff, buddy! My book of the dead is easily my favorite DVD in my collection

ericodarko at 11:15 PM Nov 08

I just need to get t my hands on that evil dead2 book of the dead edition (I know you came close to getting one)
