Welcome to the human race...
Not even old Allen, like Bananas, Annie Hall, Manhattan, and Love and Death?
Haven't seen Love and Death, but aside from that I don't care for any of those. As of writing, I've seen roughly a dozen of his films and the only one of those I like that also has him in it is Crimes and Misdemeanours, and I think it would be a stretch to call it funny.

Debris Documentar (2003)



I don't know how to rate this. It's sort of a 10 if you look at it a certain way. It's the 4th movie I've seen from extreme film director Marian Dora and it's the most repugnant of the bunch. It's probably the most relentlessly revolting movie I've seen. It makes Slaughtered Vomit Dolls look like a cartoon and Salo look like a family movie. I'll just post the synopsis from Wiki, read at your own risk-

"The film, released on DVD in 2014 as part of a boxset also containitng Melancholie der Engel(2009) and Reise nach Agatis (2010),[1] deals with the everyday life of a man, Carsten (Carsten Frank [de]), who works on the set of the 2004 Ulli Lommel film Zombie Nation. At the same time, he is planning to realize his own film, a task he finds extremely difficult. First, he tries to place casting ads in a supermarket. During his daily work on the film set, the man seems frustrated. Also, he is isolated in his private life, and spends his time by watching and masturbating to his opulent VHS film collection of homosexual rape pornography and films such as Cesare Canevariís 1977 Gestapoís Last Orgy, Dennis Donnelly's 1978 The Toolbox Murders, Werner Herzogís 1974 The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser, Peter Schamoniís 1976 Potato Fritz [de], and Rino Di Silvestroís 1976 Werewolf Woman, and tinkering with props for his own planned film. He also likes to read Astrid Prollís works about Andreas Baader and Ulrike Meinhof and the writings of Eduard MŲrike. In his spare time, he shoots photos of animal cadavers while playing with them, also partly collecting them to take home with him, as he seems to have sexual attraction to them, and rapes women (Martina Adora, Stefanie MŁller, and Carina Palmer) in the woods while they urinate. He indulges in several disturbing sexual fetishes including defecating, urinating, necrophilia, bestiality, anal fisting, rape, murder, nose-picking, and other unspeakable acts. He is in regular contact with a prostitute, Patrizia (Patrizia Johann), who puts an enema into her anus and defecates into a bucket while placing the man onto a table, shoving her fist into his anus and pulling feces out of there while he is putting the bucket to his face. By telephone, he also stays in contact with Jesķs Franco, Katja Bienert [de; fr; ru], Peter Martell, and David Hess (who composed most of this film's score). After a while, he actually contacted a woman, Franziska (Alexandra Dumas), who read his advertisement in the supermarket. They arrange a meeting in the man's house. When he tells her what he is supposed to do in his film, the woman gets scared and wants to leave the house. Then, Carsten overwhelms her and kills her by strangling her with a telephone cord and beating her head. Afterwards, he films himself as he is sexually aroused by her corpse. He cuts her nipples off in graphic detail and uses his scalpel to cut the dead woman's clitoris off. He then takes the scalpel and peels the skin off one of her fingers and eats the pieces of dismembered skin. The film ends with a scene showing Carsten burning the same woman's body and going jogging, as in the first shot of this film."







No Mercy (2010) - 6.7/10. So I found this "best non English thrillers" on a website. So I thought hmmm... This might be interesting. So I decided to watch all of them. I have seen almost 30 of them already. Just trying to do the remaining one. This was on the lower end of the list. And it shows. The story is a bit disjointed. Not taught enough which most Korean thrillers are known for. The acting is decent, except one overly over acted scene in the end. The twist is well worth waiting for and quite satisfying. The site claimed like "Oldboy". But that is bit of a stretch. Enjoyable for sure. Well worth a shot.

Hello, it gives me ideas about the movies I'm going to watch next week



I am a fan of the movie Manhunter, and so one of my friends reccomeded To Live and Die in LA, because it also stars William Petersen and has that strong 80s vibe. And I am glad I took his advice, cause I enjoyed this film where a young William Dafoe plays a rather cool villian. And just like Manhunter, this movie has a really good 80s OST.


Add to that a really good and long car chase sequence that looked authentic and real. I looked up the director and unsurprisingly it's the one who made The French Connection.





The Body (2012) - 7.2/10. This was dope stuff. This was second from bottom on the list I found, but it was brilliant. The acting, the direction, the plot, all great. One thing I have to say is these Spanish dudes use of the camera is simply awesome. The story is like spaghetti noodles but absolutely enjoyable. And the second lady's eyes, were just... WOW!!! Recommended whole heartedly! Although I figured it out a little bit in the middle. Whiskey power!



Performance (1970)

First time I've seen this and a good watch. It's a bit 60s with gangster culture (Chas) as he attempts to escape from wrongdoings. He, purposefully ends up holing up with the opposite of his creed. Washed up star (Turner) needs to feed on him for inspiration. Bit of a ride but an enjoyable one. With Cammell involved I don't suppose it could be any other way.

Iím fond of it too. Quite a few films with Belťn Rueda are worth seeing.



Warning: does not play well with others


The Wrong Missy
(2020)
3/5

I didn't find it very funny.. actually, I wasn't laughing at any point in the film.



Black Christmas(2019)

Humm, it doesn't seem to be letting me add any images...




Snooze factor = 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



Warning: does not play well with others


The Dawn
(2019)
2.5/5

WARNING: "Spoiler" spoilers below
In the end, you see a drawing of the residence of Ronald DeFeo Jr. Somehow, it's supposed to be linked to "The Amityville Horror"?



Frozen II: 9/10
Django Unchained: 6/10 (this might prob be controversial)




THE WRONG MISSY
(2020)

Terrible film. Really stupid. Another one of Adam Sandler's Happy Madison-produced lousy Netflix comedies. But for what it was worth, it made me laugh at a few scenes.

Possession (1981) - 5/10. Didn't like it. The acting was poor. More or less all the dialogue that the lead male delivers feels like he is constipated. The plot is a nut case. The screaming is annoying along with the over-acting. 2 for the movie. And 3 for Isabelle Adjani alone. Boy she was smoking hot.... and cute at the same time.






One of those movies that you wish you could be transplanted back in time so you could watch this fx laden flicker pic when it premiered. The sometimes laughable fx added to it's charm, especially the flying Genie. Perfect movie for a lazy Sunday afternoon.





Another fx filled fantasy. This has been on my radar since it was in theaters but the drama surrounding the production made me think it would be a disaster, so I avoided it. It's not a disaster at all. A lot of Baron is a "gettin' the band back together" movie with the Baron travelling to the moon, a volcano and the belly of a fish and finding his former servants who all possess a superhuman trait of some kind. Not a great movie but it's fun and very good looking.
