Four movies into this and Beck’s stalking game hasn’t improved even a little. Still rolling up to the house in his own luxury car, leering in plain sight, and/or breaking in with his trademark knock-kneed shuffle to the back door. Just goes to show you how easy it is for white men to succeed in this world.
Out of the Blue 1980
One gut punch after another until you’re completely knocked down.
If you have the Severin blu-ray, Kier-La Janisse’s Terminal City Blues is the most mesmerizing bonus feature I’ve ever seen. A must watch.
San Francisco 1936
Impressive effects in the earthquake sequence. Average in every other way.
On the romance side, Mary needs to check her picker because both of these guys suuuuuck. Though I will give Gable credit for giving me my new favorite come on: “How about going upstairs and having some chop suey?”
Another solid gold moment as 1906’s Parents of the Year reunite after the big quake:
Eddie: Where are the kids?
Mildred: They’re safe in a vacant lot. The roof fell in. The baby laughed!
Eddie: He laughed? Ha, ain’t that just like him!
