been wanting to check out the criterion sale but the Barnes and Noble near me don't sell criterions so I might go out of my way to check the sale out later this week and if I do I have a couple movies I have my eye on. either fantastic Mr fox which I watched a couple weeks back and absolutely loved or the breakfast club which is one of my favorite movies of all time might pick up both. also, have my eys on 12 angry men which I watched a couple months back and loved as well. is the breakfast club criterion worth picking up or should I just keep the 30th-anniversary Bluray i have? if anyone has the criterion of the breakfast club let me know, please#movienight#dvd#movie#moviereview#dvd#dvdcollection#dvdcollector#bluraymaniac#moviefreak#movieday#movies#bluray
Breaking Bad is hands down my favorite drama series, but I FINALLY binged Better Call Saul including the entirety of Season 3 in one evening leading up to the 10th Anniversary Reunion panel and World Premiere of Season 4 at San Diego Comic-Con. I thought nothing could come close to the original, but I’ve gotta say it has really become the perfect companion piece that not only compliments the original show but strengthens the audience’s intoxicatingly stressful love/hate relationships with ABQ’s finest felons. Vince Gilligan & Peter Gould’s worlds have become just as addicting as each character is to their ventures and vices. This is Numero Uno on my #SDCC wishlist, but I hear that #ShootingClerks panel afterward might be pretty neato too 😅 (Closing arguments: Thanks to lil Kim Wexler Jr @ambersalamander for putting in the late nights to power through them with me). @bettercallsaulamc
Night School (1981) (R) (88 Min)
SYNOPSIS - Someone has been decapitating girls at a night school and the police are baffled. Will they stop the killing spree?
REVIEW - This was a first time watch for me. As far as I know, it flies under the radar more times than not. Coming from the early 80s, it's basically a murder mystery/whodunnit/slasher. I think it was well done for the time and they do a good job not making the killer too obvious. Although I called it right away. The acting is ok enough, nothing great but doable. The story is simple but it was effective. The killer reveal wasn't too exciting but might throw some off. My biggest issues with this were the pacing and the lack of blood/gore. The pacing is very slow burn which isn't really a bad thing but it did get boring pretty quick for me. Luckily it has a good atmosphere and a wicked cool score so I kept interested. There was little to no gore, a little blood but that's it. The kills were all offscreen and that's a huge pet peeve of mine. But despite that, it was a decent watch. Doesn't hold up compared to other classic 80s slashers but it's worth checking out. I give it 2💀/5
Stanley, a six year old; " Can I keep this DVD?" Me- Nah i'm afraid not mate you're too young to watch it, it's a 15, but hey when you get older we can watch it together
Stanley- Can I keep it for when i'm older?
He cracks me up 😂
This is one hell of a movie. At times it's funny, and at times it's sad.
Many people don't like this film because it's disturbing. Well, it is. But you just have to get over it. People hated this film being disturbing because they weren't expecting it, they thought it was a light comedy. So just go into it knowing your going to be changed.
For the fainter of heart, rent the Rated version. The rape scene is much shorter. But keep in mind, that wasn't the director's vision.
Great acting, great writing, great directing, great film.
My Rating: ☆☆☆ out of 10 Stars
