Long ago, back in the dark ages of the Internet—say around 1997 or so—I put together a little tribute to one of my favorite record labels, Planet Pimp Records. Planet Pimp was a small label out of San Francisco that specialized in garage rock bands, but each release had a novelty edge to it, much to the chagrin of many a record buyer (and The Car Thieves).
It's the latest craze sweeping the nation, and you heard
Mildly amusing tale of a guy who choses to recreate memories down to exacting detail. Reminded me of how pot heads talk (and a bit of The Man Who Folded Himself). In the end, not much is gained my reading this. Shallow but entertaining at least despite threadbare plot.
A satisfying ending to a wonderful series of books. The rating reflects my opinion of the series more than that of this one book (Goblet of Fire remains the best of the series)
A hu-hum offering in the series. I accidently skipped a book... didn't seem to matter.
A very well done Aubry/Maturin story. More Maturin centric than usual, which is refreshing.
The ending was spoiled for me, but a clever twist indeed.
Another nice entry in the Aubry Maturin series.
Decent mystery. A nice change of pace from A. Christie.
Interesting with a nice ending, but lacks any real plot complications to hook me in.
Business as usual comedy from Ferrel
Bava doesn't quite have the monster movie thing down. Has it's moments, but overall just a mediocre Gothic horror.
An Italian twist on Poe's "The Black Cat." All the standard giallo elements are here in this better-than-average entry into that genre.
Trippy and confused, but somehow this movie works for me. Telly Savalas is great.
A Bava play on the And then There Were None theme.
Strange Bava sex comedy based on Rashomon.
So-so animated feature from Ardmann. Much of the humor falls flat.
Not quite as funny as Shaun of the Dead, but entertaining nontheless.
Even Shatner and Ernest Borgnine in a goat mask can't save this lame devil worshipers movie.
Predictable yet watchable giallo. Ennio Morricone music gets quite repetetive even though it's a nice theme.
Posthumous Bava film. Most of the action takes place in a car as bandits kidnap a woman, man and a child. Gets pretty gritty.
Okay horror film about a "fossil" that kills with a look.
Very effective horror movie. Claustrophbia abounds.
Well done giallo with a decent plot and a fair ending.
Initially compelling giallo that loses steam at the out-of-nowhere ending.
Ho-hum giallo offering. You can see the earplug in Antonio Sabato's ears at the climax.
Horrible child acting ruins what would be a great thriller.
Very suspenseful third act make up for the awful first 2/3 of the movie.
Colorful and holds your attention despite the technical limitations of the era. Very cool art design.
Mildly entertaining giallo. Not terribly suspensful or scary.
Decent thriller, that gets a bit too political at times and, like Spielburg's last few movies, doesn't know when to end.
Entertaining comedy that is a veiled chick flick.
Lame third act really ruins this otherwise tight thriller
Limited budget and bad acting. Not as funny as it should have been and not very scary at all.
A viking tale that's a bit too weak on style and action
Lighthearted giallo with great B&W photography
Ghost story set in an orphanage during spanish civil war. I would have preferred more ghosts and less reality.
Dark fantasy amid Franco's spanish civil war. Great effects, story and characters.
Entertaining one-joke movie about a future of stupid people.
Not awful, but far from Argento's best. A few inventive shots and Max Von Syndow make it worth a watch.
Mildly intriguing but, beyond the acting, fails on many fronts.
Does not live up to the hype, but has its moments.
Collection of 3 horror tales. They vary in quality but the last is superb.
Visually stunning comic book adaptation. The plot and character development are a bit lacking though.
The plot is a bit disjointed at times and Shirley McClane is not terribly good , but Clint Eastwood and Morricone hold together this buddy movie western.
Low budget grindhouse production about killer, satanic hippies. Pretty boring. Only the last, zombie-flick inspired 10 minutes are kinda fun.
Disappointing resolution and shallow characters, but enough interesting imagery and weirdness to moderately recommend.
