    Falling Down

    ★★★½

    Well... (add lots and lots more of these: ... ... ... just to be on the safe side)

    See, it's kind of a giant mess. But not in the way I uncannily-like the back of my hand remember The Client and A Time to Kill being messy. And obvious. And sticky. And not just because they both had incredibly sweaty energy too. Schumacher directs in the 90's like he doesn't understand the concept of breathing room between us and the…

    Murder Mouth

    A quick Google search will take you to the Vimeo full upload. But I won't link it. It's about as graphic as you might expect.

    Since it's not American? Oh yeah, that alone tells you that you're going to see the same HBO jazzy, happy, jumpy music as a background for an adorable young white woman butchering several animals for her food. And we, as well as her friends and family, will be watching her do it.

    She's not feeling great about it. I hope no one does.

    Sleepaway Camp

    This review was written in 2011, I believe:

    How many times is a rip-off able to surpass the thing it owes its' existence to? Only two films come to mind (Piranha is the other). Friday the 13th had great pieces but really didn't come together to be the best it could be (though it's still a personal favorite and always will be). Sleepaway Camp aims lower but nonetheless passes with Sleaze Honors. In the arena of so-bad-it's-good horror movies -…

    Jurassic Park

    ★★★★

    #63 in my 99 90's Movies month.

    Excitement and danger come first, characters come second. Which is totally okay in Spielbergia. Though those kids are incredibly annoying at times. ("Vegiesaurus! Meatasaurus!" ...Really, movie?) And some of the drama is pretty seriously forced down your throat (Laura Dern before eating the ice cream, Attenborough's super-scream on the telephone, Jeff Goldblum... in general, that kid and the tree climbing, and the fence jumping). But it is exciting and it never did skimp on the danger, did it? Holds up surprisingly well. I probably never enjoyed it this much.
