Well ... uh, I don't have a TV or cable, so I'm pretty much at a loss here.

Not that I wouldn't mind seeing some trashy Syfy flick or Skinemax from time to time. Alas, I am not thus so blessed.

I've seen cable TV this week for the first time in years, while visiting family. Apparently, everything is now reality shows.

I gotta say, regardless of your feelings about Uwe Bolls movies, you have to be impressed that a director would shoot a shot by shot parody of his own movie simultaneously with the non-parody starring all the same actors.

When wife and I were watching, I was laughing all the way through, while the wfe was all WTF is funny?

I really enjoy the "This TV" channel because they play tons of old (60-80s) movies that I've never heard of before.

You can watch them using this thing called the internet.

Recently saw a Korean flick (possibly) called 'I'm a cyborg, and I'm okay'. It was.... Interesting.

Well, he had the sets and the actors and the support staff already, so why not have a little fun?

I don't know what this 'tv' is of which you speak. But saw Ironclad on Netflix streaming yesterday. Someone chops someones arm off, which is then used to beat someone else to death. Say no more.

Sorry... not a fan of Uwe Boll's work.

"Easy A" with Emma Stone.

Great dialog.

While channel surfing one Saturday a few years ago I stumbled across a teenage coming-of-age movie on the Disney channel. Much to my surprise . . . I enjoyed it. There were no gun battles, no explosions, no car chases. It was clever. It was funny.

I've since become a fan of teenage angst coming-of age movies.

Dunno why. The humor is good. The lack of violence is a nice change of pace, I s'pose.

"Easy A" is an example.

some movie about the cleveland mob in the 70s called 'kill the irishman' or something wasn't too bad but that lady should have showed the goods off more than she did.

Slither

A near-perfect homage to the classic horror films of the 50s. Although that was a "stumbled across on Netflix" title.

This has become my yearly Halloween movie in a it's so bad it's good category. I don't know how to describe it without sounding racist, but more or less, it's about a frankenstein monster that plays basketball in the hood.

Cashback. Was relevant interest listed from the Secretary Movie. Oddly enough, it had a little bit of everything. INCLUDING BOOBIES.

Roger Corman's "Attack of the Crab Monsters" with the guy who played The Professor from Gilligan's Island wasn't a bad way to waste an hour. The crab monsters actually kinda freaked me out even though they were way low budget. But it could have just been the tequila and hash combo I had for dinner.

"Revenge of the Creature" was a lot of fun too.

Clockwork Orange on either AMC or IFC many years ago. Still one of my favorite movies to this day.

Some French flick called "House of Pleasures"

It's about a brothel at the turn of the 19th century.

Lots of boobies. A fairly decent story line with a WTF ending.

Blubberella? I don't think that helps the overweight acceptance movement very much.

I did catch TMC airing the porn version of Pirates 2 one night and have recorded it on the DVR for "testing" purposes.

Fido - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0457572/


Another very odd one that I liked - I think I saw it the same week as "Repo" because Netflix was streaming movies, but did not yet have a very large catalog, so I was willing to watching anything I had not seen before.

C'mon, she's a 1940's Blade, but with 2 swords, an internet connected laptop and a cell phone. And she kicks ass.

Knock Off


For what you'd expect to be a standard Van Damme action flick with a questionable plot, this thing has a lot of strange elements that alternate between working incredibly well together and just coming off as horribly cheesy. The visual effects and picture composition in particular is very... experimental, let's say. Like the director of photography was trying really, really weird stuff and just decided to keep it all in there rather than trimming anything that came out wonky. Again, some of it works really well, some neat transitions in there and such, but sometimes it's just bizarre and weird. Also, the chase/fight scene in the warehouse full of durians (spikefruit) is a highlight.

And speaking of random movies with Rob Schneider that I surprisingly enjoyed....

Down Periscope


I think everything that needs to be said about this movie has already been said by other people countless times. Suffice it to say it's a cult classic with a book's worth of one-liners and some pretty memorable characters. Also, Kelsey Grammar being kind of demented, which is always a plus. Oh and Rob Schneider gets hit in the face a few times, so it has that going for it.

About six monbths ago, I was up late, couldn't get to sleep and started channel surfing on cable.

I hit on "Moon," about half way thru it. I watched half an hour of it, just enough to figure out what was going on and then watched something else, not wanting to watch more until I could catch it again, but from the start and watch it all the way thru. About a week later, I did. Wow. I was just blown away at how good it was. Simple story, well told and acted and it just grabs you.

Evil Alien Conquerors
To be fair, I didn't find it on TV but it was all kinds of awesome.
