Purple Rain (Prince)
I took a break from gaming and my 90s monster movie search, only to come across…even more monster movies from the 90s! Amester and I discovered the Full Moon channel on Amazon Prime…my God. It’s something to behold, indeed. We spent the weekend rolling thru the catalog.
Bad Channels (1992)
Amy: Not sure
Holy crap. This is weird. Blue Öyster Cult is weird. I feel weird now. It’s up there with TerrorVision, and I’m not sure if that’s good or bad. It may be brilliant…
Body Snatchers meets Critters. Although interesting, it lacks a sure-fire element that would send it to my own personal favs list: Bo Hopkins. Sam Hennings gives it the ol’ college try, but still ends up a poor man’s Mumblin’ Bo who moonlights as a MacGyver impersonator. Chances are, you’re going to be asking yourself, ” what in the ding dong heckamadoodle hell did I just watch?”
I’d like to say it’s a good fun-bad movie, but it’s actually a lot better than it should be. It’s still a dumb Sci-Fi/action movie, but ends up being a lot of fun, and sports a good early 90s soundtrack. Is he tiny, or are we giants? Maybe they’ll answer that in one of the many sequels.
I very much enjoyed my time with this one, and after DM and Trancers, I definitely consider myself a Tim Thomerson fan. The actors all gave pretty stellar performances, including a young Helen Hunt. The music was fitting, and the sets were on par.
Doctor Mordrid (1992)
Dr. Strange’s little brother, Jeffrey Combs, runs around being a 90s movie. Not really, but it works.
Demonic Toys (1992)
Definitely a decent fun-bad. Child’s Play meets Puppetmaster.
Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama (1988)
The premise is just ridiculous enough to work as a spiritual sequel to Chopping Mall, but it just doesn’t pull it off. The acting is so bad, even Uncle Impy can’t save this one.
Lurking Fear (1994)
Not sure. I think I fell asleep…or I was drunk. I don’t remember it at all.
Okie dokie folks! Week trial is over. I highly suggest you check that company out. I had a blast watching all of them this last week.
I took a quick break from gaming to check out the latest additions to Netflix, Prime, and Hulu (I can’t ever decide on anything to watch. I just flip back and forth between services until I get frustrated and pick something.) As usual, below are my impressions on what I chose.
Aside from the last half hour, it was incredibly slow and boring. The cinematography was decent, and the setting was very cool (futuristic Berlin), but the story didn’t pull through for me. The end got weird, and it came off desperate, as if attempting to reel you back in and slap you awake.
Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
Full of action, comical, and overall pretty light. I was home sick and needed something to watch that wasn’t going to bog me down and make me think a whole lot. This kept me entertained the entire time. The colors were fantastic, and the cinematography was spot on. Also, Cate Blanchett is amazing.
Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
What? I watched Thor: Ragnarok, and this was right there on Netflix! I had to…Anyway, it’s good. I was worried it was going to be a little long in the tooth, but even after the 2 1/2 hour mark, I was still awake! Furthermore, I see myself watching the new one, as well. Josh Brolin was fantastic, but I thought Chris Pratt was a bit much.
AVP: Alien vs. Predator (2004)
One of these days, I’ll pick up The Predator, but until then I figured I would watch one of my favorites. It’s not a “good movie”, really, but it’s fun and gave me everything I wanted. Lance Henriksen’s in it. That’s usually enough for me, but add two of my favorite franchises and it’s all over.
Lethal Weapon 2 (1989)
I started LW1 the other day, but I was severely under the weather, and passed out drooling within no time, so I couldn’t put it on here. I watched this one, though! It’s fun! It’s an early Lethal Weapon movie, so of course it’s fun. Ok? Ok ok ok ok ok ok.
Species II (1998)
Watch if you’ve seen the first one.
Turned out to be a decent fun-bad flick for the moment. Pretty forgettable once it’s done, though.
Deadly Instincts or Breeders (1997)
Skip unless you’re watching the Rifftrax version.
The monster animatronics are actually pretty good, which is clearly where the budget went. I’m ok with that.
Silver Bullet (1985)
The death scenes are surprisingly gory, and Gary Busey’s performance is surprisingly Wings Hausery. My only regret is no Mumblin Bo Hopkins act-alike. Haim dropped the ball on that one.
Split Second (1992)
Rutger Hauer fans will love it. He’s in full swing, chasing around a monster in 1992’s 2008. It has its moments for sure, but it’s still a bit rough.
Star Hunter (1996)
Holy shit, Roddy McDowall…no…Don’t do that…This movie’s just awful. McDowall’s an alien who hunts a group of teenagers via a remote controlled robot with a shotgun. The acting got worse as the movie drug on, and it wasn’t very good to begin with…I feel dirty.
Pumpkinhead 2: Blood Wings (1993)
Watch for the monster.
PH is just such a cool monster. He looked a little dry and rubbery, but still not bad. The acting is horrible, but it’s a good fun-bad flick.
Graveyard Shift (1993)
Movie adaptation of Stephen King’s story about a giant creature killing a bunch of people in a mill in Maine.
That’s it for now, folks. I’ll add more movies as they play for January, and I may even do more for Feb. Who knows? Thanks for tuning in!
