I mean, I haven't, but I probably will, and it will probably be terrible (and the original two probably are terrible, but my inner child just won't admit it).

The new Bill and Ted is kind of weak. Not completely terrible, but it is very unimaginative compared to the first two films, and Reeves looks unsure of himself for at least 80% of it.

After watching Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story Of Cannon Films, I decided to watch a couple of the movies mentioned that I hadn't seen already.

Joe (1970): The father of a young Susan Sarandon (cracking tits) inadvertently kills her dealer boyfriend after she OD's, ends up falling in with Peter Boyle over their mutual hatred of hippies. After said daughter runs off when the truth is out, they both look for her - a series of events lead to some mad shit at a commune. I thought it was a cracking film! 5 Fists.

The Last American Virgin (1982): Sex comedy-drama which is a remake of an Israeli movie called Lemon Popsicle, it starts out as a typical teen coming-of-age sex farce a la Porky's before changing tone into some kind of drama about how the girl this guy is after actually prefers his mate (played by the guy who was Troy in 'The Goonies' and one of the rapists in 'The Accused'). It's because of this that I thought the movie was alright, although should've stuck to one tone or the other. Not sure we needed to see Stephanie from 'The Naked Gun' in her smalls but cracking use of the U2 song 'I Will Follow'. 3 Fists.

I've just read that in 2024, the American Oscars will require some new rules with regards to diversity - I think it's a silly idea (I'm Eurasian incase anyone wonders) but my question is: how will this impact hollywood in the time ahead?

^^It's misguided for sure, but Hollywood films are so lousy now that it hardly matters.

Looks like Coppola's new cut of The Godfather III is finally going to be released. Unless he is digitally replacing Sofia though, I'm not sure how much better it could possibly be. Apparently the ending of the new version is totally different.

Gone With the Wind - ehh, after about 2 hours I couldn't take it anymore. The main actress was annoying as hell, the plot felt too sappy and overall I got very little pleasure out of what I had seen so far, safe for some minor scenes here and there.

Queen Of The Damned (2002).

The only reason I sat through this crock of shit was because apparently, Stuart Townsend got the lead role (as Lestat) based on his performance in Resurrection Man, which in itself is a cracking film. He's nowhere near as good in this. The whole thing is pretty much a snapshot of early 00's alternative culture - Nu Metal soundtrack, Attitude Clothing goths and people pretending to be vampires. The SFX are awful as well and surely it's a small mercy that Aaliyah died before she saw this movie...

Zero Fists.

^^It's terrible for sure, and it seemed dated even in 2002 from memory. Seemed more like a late 90's film. I'm surprised Aaliyah even agreed to be in it given her background.


Eureka: Roeg was a pretty lousy director imo. Couldn't direct actors to save his life, and this film is full of very bad performances, especially from Russell. He couldn't even get a decent performance from Hackman. It starts promisingly enough and is somewhat comparable to a narcotic version of McCabe and Mrs Miller in its opening act, but it quickly devolves into a boring stilted period drama and stays in that mode for what feels like an eternity. A bullshit film that critics rightfully panned at its time of release. 3/10.

Saw The Quick and the Dead for the first time since maybe the early-00s. It was enjoyable for what it was, interesting to see Raimi's take on a spaghetti western essentially. Sharon Stone's character is a bit meh, or at least her performance, I kinda feel like she didn't convey the emotional weight that should have been there. Gene Hackman was basically Gene Hackman in a western :lol: The motley crew of side characters are perhaps the most interesting aspects next to the Raimi-isms.

It is an interesting failure.

The Trial of The Chicago 7: Sorkin should stick to writing. 5/10

A Raisin in the Sun

Liked it...even though Sidney Poitier was surprisingly over-the-top at times. 7/10

The opening track is very catchy!

Just finished watching it and I thought it was shit. Not very funny in the slightest and like the Jay & Silent Bob Reboot, is a piss stain on it's respective legacy

I watched it the other night, thought it was poor. Just a mishmash of the first 2 films with their kids doing the heavy lifting. At least Reeves had the good grace to look embarrassed by the whole affair.

The Exorcist

Some of the possession scenes that appear later in the movie are a bit too over the top to me (the growling and cursing mostly), otherwise it's pretty damn good. I mean, the scene where the girl/demon rises from her bed or the scene where the demonic statue appears next to her are quite something...and who could forget that spiderwalk scene? (Yeah, I know it's not her but it's still an effective scene!) 7/10

I need to watch the origanl version of The Exorcist again, a lot of that stuff was added for the director's cut (the spiderwalk scene, the images of the demon appearing in the background etc.) and that's the only version I've seen for years. I found that cut pretty freaky alright, but when I saw the original cut in my early/mid-teens, I found it hilarious.

Oh, I might as well give the original cut a try too - don't think I've ever actually seen it, even if I've heard of some of the differences the version contains.

I was gonna splash out on the boxset but it only has the director's cut, I think. Some issues with the transfers too, if memory serves.

Also seems that Max von Sydow had died earlier this year. Hadn't noticed! RIP!
