I was flipping around the channels last night and saw a movie called "Paradise".

I am very sure that that movie could not have been made this year. A seventeen-year-old Phoebe Cates and quite a bit of nudity would lead to calls for the director to be brought up on child pornography charges.


Release Date:
7 May 1982 (USA)

I know it was released in 1982, but...

Phoebe Cates said:
I was only 17 when I did my nude scenes in Paradise (1982). They were serious and more difficult because they were not easily justified. But the topless scene in Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982) was funny, which made it easy.

Saw it, loved it. I should explain something: I grew up watching Monster Movies, in the theaters or on the tube.
There was "Creature double feature" on saturday afternoons, and really cool, cheesy monster movies were staples of late night UHF television many years ago. So naturally, I enjoyed cloverfield.

I've been meaning to check out "The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra". :lol: It's in my Netflix que.

Have any of you ever seen the original, 1957 version of "Not of This Earth"? (Not the 80's remake with Traci Lords. Nice eye candy, but no.) It's ultra-cheesy black and white, but has a really cool monster in the last few minutes. It's this little, ghoulish looking thing that sort of resembles an umbrella. It drops over the head of its victim, closes up, and eats brains. At least, I think that's what it does. You're never really sure.

An on-line outfit called Scifistation has a lot of these movies, in "regionless" DVD packages. The quality is not great, but acceptable. It's doubtful that anyone will ever do a really top-quality restoration on most of these movies.

How about "Attack of The Mushroom People"? ;)

No Country For Old Men was fantastic. We almost saw that one a second time instead.


Can you use the spoiler tag and tell me why you liked it so much?


I don't think there's a need for a spoiler tag...

I thought the acting was top notch, the script excellent, the pacing perfect, the imagery beautiful, and that the ending was the only "realistic" option. Was the film without flaw? By no means. But overall it was a masterful picture and one of the best new movies I've seen in years.

archive.org has a lot of old B&W B scifi movies, unfortunately it's search feature appears to be borked, but it's a treasure trove of cheesy scifi and monster movies.

I just saw it the other day and was actually fairly disappointed. I liked it, but it didn't live up to all I've been hearing about it. I didn't care much for the ending. I didn't mind it plotwise, but I thought it seemed deliberately ambiguous when the rest of the movie had been a really straightforward narrative.

Other than that, I watched both Alien and Aliens today before the sci fi test I had on them. I also watched The Vampire Lovers, which was...interesting. Next up are Innocent Blood and The Hunger before my test tuesday.

Sweeney Todd, Saturday
War Of The Worlds (Spielberg,Cruise version), Sunday

Depp is a genuine genius
Dakota Fanning is a natural
Spielberg likes to have his actors scream into wind machines and flashing lights

I finally got around to watching 28 Days Later last night. Pretty damn good.

I watched The Brave One a couple of days ago. I thought it was pretty good, although i couldn't stand Jodie Fosters radio voice.

I watched Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events this weekend. It was pretty good, but my copy wasn't - I may have to rent it or something.

Saw "Eastern Promises" this weekend. Pretty good, if a little too similar to "A History of Violence."

I just saw Death At A Funeral and it was pretty funny. I'd highly recommend this one for a good laugh.
21, and it was FANTASTIC.

It was so good, I was going to get the book (because I figured it was more accurate than the movie).

Then I looked it up... while neither is accurate to the story, it sounds like the book may be less accurate than the movie (more events that didn't actually happen and/or greater exaggeration of events that did).

I watched Teen Wolf the other night. I forgot how awesome that movie was.

Why did becoming a wolf make him so much better at basketball though?

I'll give you better reflexes, but suddenly he could dunk with ease and handle the ball better than Steve Nash.

Joe Verses The Volcano. Snatched it up for six bucks at a grocery store display.

The starting scenes with "the worst job in the world" are GREAT. It's also a treat seeing Meg Ryan playing three different roles. Even a bad Tom Hanks movie is pretty good.

However; I would like to say that
I've had Beatles songs running around in my head for the last three days,
And you know that can't be bad.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Interesting, unpredictable, well-acted. Image

I re-watched the ending of Terminator 2... John Connor seems so young now that I'm older and not watching the movie when I was his character's age...

My love for Terminator is a secret. Especially in CA where we routinely make fun of our Governator and his brawn.

It's not so much making fun, as it is sort of laughed at for being odd. He does a decent job considering, it's just such an absurd concept that he is governor. :shrug:

It seems like he is doing a pretty good job, at least from this side of the country.
Too bad he can't run for the big job.

Somebody put me back in the fridge....
I don't know... I guess it's because a lot of my friends have never watched Terminator and don't regard Arnold too highly - all brawn and accent and no acting skill. It's true, he isn't bad as a governor, but it is a bit absurd that he is. So it's rather embarrassing to admit that I love the Terminator movies because I think people tend to think I'm *classier* than that. Image

So, people that like the Terminator flicks have no class?

By the way, i'm sure you know he isn't the first bad actor to become governor of Cal. One even went on to become president.

The last 2 movies i saw were Juno and Sweeney Todd. I thought both were good, but not great.

I've got Cloverfield here now. I just have to find the time to watch it.
