Hoax (2019)

I rarely bother with the Bigfoot films, but this one had at least a couple of recognizable names in it. It's not bad for a new B-horror, and it's positively campy. Nothing new, nothing great, but sort of passable 90 minutes anyway.

It's ****ing sweet. I might do a review on it soon, since there's a lot to say here. Way too much to fit into this post.

Definitely my favorite Western of all time. The Wild Bunch is a close second.



Day Of The Warrior, 1996 (B+)

A cheesy Andy Sidaris action movie about a white, part native apparently, wrestler criminal ringleader who hacks into the computer of a cheesy action movie agency, leading them to rush to save their infiltrated agents before they get discovered.

The movie isn't terribly coherent, with the ex-CIA, half-native, Siberian diamond smuggling, Pre-columbian artifacts stealing, art counterfeiter, porn studio owner, general movie pirating wrestler bad guy and a cast of characters which are, I presumed, better presented in other movies. It's tons of fun though. It has slapstick, explosions, super dumb action scenes where no one can aim, etc. I enjoyed it quite a bit.







Snooze factor rating = Z



[Snooze Factor Ratings]:
Z = didn't nod off at all
Zz = nearly nodded off but managed to stay alert
Zzz = nodded off and missed some of the film but went back to watch what I missed
Zzzz = nodded off and missed some of the film but went back to watch what I missed but nodded off again at the same point and therefore needed to go back a number of times before I got through it...
Zzzzz = nodded off and missed some or the rest of the film but was not interested enough to go back over it



I am watching Blue Vengeance because someone told me to. WHO. WAS. IT? And WHAT is happening in this movie?! *eyes Crumbsroom suspiciously*



Wolf of Snow Hollow, 2020

This is my second film from Jim Cummings, and it's pretty clear that the guy has his shtick. It's this middle aged male character (complete with daughter and ex-wife) who is a mix of repression and explosiveness. Unable to say what he needs, and yet all too quick to vent his frustration and disappointment on others. Speaking personally, I think that Cummings is very, very funny.

Whether you vibe with Cummings' sensibilities will probably go along way toward whether or not you will enjoy Wolf of Snow Hollow (or his earlier feature, Thunder Road). It's a very specific brand of quirk.

So speaking as someone who very much appreciates the way that Cummings pulls together timing, tone, and physical comedy, I quite enjoyed this film.

Cummings plays John Marshall, a recovering alcoholic whose small town is rocked by a series of brutal murders that seem to be attacks by an animal. A very, very large animal. As the pressure mounts on Marshall to solve the murders, he also has to contend with his father's failing health, his daughter's looming departure to college, and an addiction that comes creepy-crawling back into his life.

Cummings holds the center of the film just fine, but the supporting cast is also very strong, especially Riki Lindhome as the quietly competent deputy who ends up doing most of the real work on the case. Also worth mentioning is Kelsey Edwards as a woman who has a frightening encounter with a strange man. She reports it to the police, but she's one of a dozen people claiming they "know who the killer is", and her warnings go essentially unheard.

The sequence with Edwards' character is actually a real standout. The film manages to convey both perspectives with empathy: Edwards just wants someone to listen to her story and to understand how sure she is that the guy was up to no good. The police, on the flip side, are being swamped with information, and Edwards is unable to give them hardly any specific details about the man ("He was wearing a hood" she finishes lamely).

The gore is decent, but at its heart this isn't really a horror movie. It's more of a dark comedy wrapped in a werewolf flick.

If Cummings' approach to comedy does it for you, this one is definitely recommended. If his brand of quirk doesn't vibe with you, you'll probably be disappointed. The character dynamics are the heart of the film. If you do enjoy this one, be sure to check out Thunder Road which, unburdened by such a heavy main plot, is able to take more time to give the viewer insight into the main character and his personal unraveling.

Rush Hour (1998).


4/5 Stars.



Rush Hour 2 (2001).



4/5 Stars.



I've always loved these films. They're silly and ridiculous but funny, easy to watch and very entertaining; sometimes that's all you want after a hard day at work, movie comfort food. The third one is just plain bad though, it's a Godfather Part III situation.
gosh loved rush hour movie trilogy. hope u gonna watch rush hour 3!

Blue Vengeance, 1989

Nothing like seeing a title of a film, thinking "Oh! Someone said that was . . . something I should watch", and then realizing, ah, this is Troll 2 territory.

Mark Trax is an out-of-his mind murderer who lives in a fantasy world that bleeds out into the real world--a fantasy centered on the lyrics and music of a heavy metal band. When Trax escapes prison, ex-police officer Mickey McCardle is hot on his trail.

The film is not without its over-the-top charms, including "turned up to 11" performances at times and some outrageous gore/violence set-pieces that at least speak to some creativity. At every turn Trax is knocking out teeth or using a shard of mirror to stab someone in the face. The finale may or may not involve jousting and/or a motorcycle.

Like many cult classics, the movie tends to drag between its murders. The performances are big, but they aren't, you know, good.

It does contain my favorite gloriously sexist trope: the one where a male protagonist saves a woman from being raped, then she expresses fear about him being a pervert, and then he sassily tells her that no one would want to rape her as if that wasn't something that the movie showed us not 30 seconds ago.

How to rate something like this? I don't know. Probably best to see it with friends who are ready for a laugh and the kind of movie you don't have to pause when someone needs to go to the bathroom.

Not me. The only way I can make anyone watch a movie I recommend is to bribe them with some arbitrary points in an arbitrary game I'm only arbitrarily keeping score of.

Headless Eyes (full movie) view count on Youtube thanks you for your participation though. It's probably now up to 12.

I hadn't seen Cummings before but I thought this film was pretty good and would recommend it. I watched it with a couple of friends and we all thought it was a good film from script to acting, to directing to editing. Good story, well-executed, and I agree Lindhome was perfect for her role.
I'm comfortable calling this one of the good Werewolf movies.

If you enjoyed the humor/vibe, Thunder Road is a stronger film.
