RIP MARILYN CHAMBERS 1952-2009

The first review I ever did on this blog was for David Cronenberg's Rabid starring Marilyn Chambers. (You can read it here) I was sad to learn of her passing Sunday. She was one of the first adult film stars I remember as a teenager, thanks mostly to Cinemax. But I found that no matter what it was I saw her in, she always seemed to carry herself with class and grace.

MINI REVIEWS

Being that I'm too lazy to update this blog more than every few months, I figure the least I can do is post mini reviews until I can get motivated again to post regularly.

Splinter (2008)

After being carjacked, a young couple find themselves trapped in a gas station along with their carjacker, fighting off a strange creature that kills then re-animates the body parts to kill again.
Fun little monster movie that moves along at a pretty quick pace. Nothing really new here but that's not always a bad thing. 7/10

THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL (2008)

Why oh why do I watch things like this? The original is one of my all time favorite movies, so why did I feel the need to see this. It doesn't have any of the heart of the original, nor does it do anything interesting with the story. Even updated effects for Gort didn't help me to enjoy this unnecessary movie. I even had to watch the original again right after watching this just to get the bad taste out of my mouth. 5/10

Let the Right One In (2008)

WOW! Stop reading this now and go and see this movie. You won't regret it. 9/10

[Rec](2007)

Shaky Cam Spanish flick about a TV crew trapped in an apartment building where the tenants have a strange illness that turn them into flesh eating ghouls. Don't settle for the American remake, Quarantine, that's pretty much shot for shot. Track down the original, you won't be sorry. 8/10

G.I.JOE SUPER BOWL SPOT



After months of preparing for disappointment, I see this and as much as I hate to admit it, it's looks to be cheesy and fun. But we'll have to wait till August to see just how bad it is.

MY NAME IS BRUCE FINALLY COMING TO DVD

Something evil is stirring in the small mining town of Gold Lick, and it's not happy. Guan-di, the Chinese protector of the dead with a strange affinity for bean curd, has been awakened by reckless teenagers, and now his bloody crusade to wipe out the town's entire population can only be stopped by one man - Bruce Campbell (the guy who starred in all three Evil Dead movies and Bubba Ho-tep), B-move star and deadbeat ex-husband extraordinaire, who's recruited to be their unwitting savior. Thinking the whole scenario's a publicity prank, Bruce is distracted from his mission by a hot mom and fan boys aplenty-- but when our hero has to face off against a dark force more fearsome than a Hollywood agent, the laughs and screams start flying!
