606 - The Creeping Terror - 4 months ago

This movie actually stumbles into a very effective sequence when the woman hanging up clothes is eaten by the monster, with the cut from her crying baby to the laundry flapping on the line. Unfortunately, that's the only glimmer of competence in this entire stinkburger.

I think that "Can you really do that through pants?", delivered as one of the dancing girls nuzzles up against the crotch of Gary's extremely high-waisted pants, might be the dirtiest riff they ever did on this show.

814 - Riding with Death - almost 2 years ago

Dr. Hale doesn't exactly lead a criminal empire, and he had no way of knowing that Casey would stop at that particular gas station, anyway.
So, this movie features, without explanation, a sociopathic serial killer mechanic who disables brakes for no reason. I wish the whole thing was just about him; he probably has a pretty interesting life.

What I've never been able to figure out about this movie -- well, there are many things I can't figure out about this movie -- is what the whole thing with the preacher was about. Was Rabane trying to imply that this was some kind of divine judgment? That seems unlikely, since we get a scientific explanation for what happened, even if it makes no sense and involves a "gateway to hell." Was Rabane trying to get all artsy on us?

The running gag based on him saying Lake Maracaibo is narrow just kills me every time. "Well, if it isn't Mr. Narrow Lake."

I know things have changed and we're far more sensitive to these things now (which is a good thing), but I just can't believe all those shots at the beginning of the creepy Air Force dudes using that sophisticated surveillance equipment to spy on teenagers making out didn't creep out audiences back when this first came out. Was that supposed to be funny?

512 - Mitchell - over 2 years ago

The "turn the gun on yourself" bit at about 1:20:45 has gotta be just about the darkest riff ever. I can't even think of any close contenders, offhand.

What's with the cartoony soundtrack? "BAOOOOING!!!" Is that supposed to be scary?

501 - Warrior of the Lost World - over 2 years ago

The thing that annoys me most about this movie -- and, god, there are so many things that annoy me about this movie -- is the way that stupid computer on Paper Chase guy's bike says everything three times. It would be bad enough if it said those lame lines once, but the repeating just pushes it over the edge.

609 - The Skydivers - over 2 years ago

Coleman Francis had a singular vision as a director, and he wasn't going to let those little things that bogged down lesser directors like "having a plot" or "having characters that aren't repulsive" or "making sense" get in his way.

My favorite of the many, many sexual innuendos related to the endless refueling scenes was "I think he has whiskey jet."
