Seed of Chucky

Okay, how the fuck did this movie get made? ..seriously?
It's not that it's terrible - it's not, but it is genuinely bizarre.

I will creep you out
This is the weirdest part...

Since I'm still trying to wrap my head around it, I think I'll watch it again ..skim anyway - then attempt a review type o' thing..

ALRIGHT, it's a black comedy with a horror film pedigree, but mostly a strange and sometimes funny Jennifer Tilly movie.

"Hi, my name is Tiffany Ray. Um, you don't know me but, a few years ago I killed your husband, and I am SO sorry."

Even the trailer plays mostly for chuckles, and feels more like '70s Corman than modern Hollywood...

Fun though..

Again, very weird little film, and something much closer to '80s horror/comedy than anything recent.
I'm still not sure if I like it, but am looking forward to #6..
CURSE OF CHUCKY is coming soon...

Ted Talk

YAYY!!! Ted today, and back later with a review...

Well, it's a Seth MacFarlane movie for sure, but emphasis on the movie. Cute and predictable little rom-com in the middle and Mila Kunis is pretty good, got to admit..
but the Ted/John Bennett(Mark Wahlberg) relationship is the story and it is funny. I like Mark Wahlberg best when he's light, though The Fighter is a f'ing great movie - he looks like he's having a good time, but only as much as we are, and man do I hate it when the cast is having more fun than I am ...rrrgggg know that feeling - one of my comedy pet peeves.
It feels like a future classic at the moment but we'll see how it holds up. Took my GF, and her Dad - smart cat, 74 and we all howled. End credit sequence is funnny...
Like Family Guy there are jokes that fall plenty flat but it's on from beginning to end - especially the end..
The whole movie is funny Funny FUNNY ..bit stupid, but..

..TED's a BLAST!!! Go see it.

Kingdom of the Spiders

William Shatner VS Killer Tarantulas - now, that's a logline..

I liked this film quite a bit when I saw it as a boy. I loved it last night as I watched it on a sweltering July evening ..munching snacks and rooting for ol' Billy 'til the sun went down. Perfect night.

Alright, yes - it's a B-movie but as one it's close to perfect. Cool beginning - good middle - great ending - I adore endings like this, and without ruining it I can guess "The Birds" was the principal inspiration. It's not without it's stupid moments, but it rolls along nicely, and I'm already a huge Shatner fan - I just plain dig him - he's hilarious and ambitious beyond even Tom Cruise's insanity. Bill Shatner LOVES being Bill Shatner, and we love him for it.

Lots of very real spiders, and a script that's not afraid to kill kill kill...

And if you, like myself, love a good "Double-Feature" watch it with Dark Night of the Scarecrow - man, I wish I could get my local Drive-In to play those ..what a night.

cheers, A.
