Tallyteers: June Tally: 14 Films Seen ; 91 films since joining 4/8/10

Posted in 2010 Tally by dtinnin on July 2, 2010

This is embarrassing. I obviously went outdoors way too much in the month of June and watched way too much TV. I did manage to see the following films:

6/2 DARK KNIGHT – still epic.

6/4 GET HIM TO THE GREEK – furry walls?

6/8 FRIGHT NIGHT – all class.

6/9 SOUL POWER – James Brown was a force.

6/12 ROCKY IV – best training montage ever.

ROCKY V – no training montage = fail

GET CARTER – Stallone- a-thon continues

DEMOLITION MAN – back when Arnold was only the President.

6/15 FIRST CONTACT – best Trek flick of the ’90s

6/23 KNIGHT AND DAY – Poor Tom.

6/28 HIGH FIDELITY – the last gasp of ’90s Indie cinema…

6/29 STONES IN EXILE – They were kings.

ELTON JOHN: TANTRUMS AND TIARAS – he’s still a Queen.

SINGLES – “I was just nowhere near your neighborhood…”

Tallyteers: May Tally: 49 Films Seen ; 77 films since joining 4/8/10

This is more of the pace I’d like to keep for the remainder of the year, although some of the so-called “filler films” need to be replaced by either incredibly bad B movies or timeless classics. The Tallyteers are such a great way to keep track and manage your movie budget – you can see what you’ve spent the most on and where you need to cut back.

I SEE YOU aka D-TOX (2002)

Posted in tallyteers 2010 by dtinnin on June 1, 2010

Stallone makes the best straight-to-DVD movies out there, and this is no exception. The cast is stellar: Robert Patrick, Tom Berenger, Sean Patrick Flannery, Jeffrey Wright, Charles Durning just to name a few. This could have been the cast of THE EXPENDABLES and I would have been fine with that.

Everyone is a cop with a problem, so they’ve been sent away to the Outpost #31 of rehab centers, only to find out that one of their demons – namely Stallone’s – has been let out of the bottle so to speak…

THE STEPFATHER (2009), THE CHATEAU (2002)

Posted in tallyteers 2010 by dtinnin on June 1, 2010

Date: 5/27       Format: Netflix Instant

THE STEPFATHER (2009)

Great casting makes this perfectly watchable…it’s a good rent and cuddle. That being said, the two teens spend a shocking amount of time in the pool out back, and more people really should have died.

THE CHATEAU (2002)

Starring: Paul Rudd and Romany Malco

Rudd and Malco play brothers from anotha motha that inherit a French Chateau only to find out it is in a state of total disrepair with a staff that has no intention of leaving in peace. It’s kind of like Mr. Blandings meets Mr. Apatow with a cute French girl thrown in for good measure.

It’s worth a watch just to see Rudd trying to speak French…

CLUE (1985), WILD LIFE (1984), HELL NIGHT (1981)

Posted in tallyteers 2010 by dtinnin on June 1, 2010

CLUE (1985)

Director: Jonathan Lynn

Starring: Eileen Brennan, Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, Colleen Camp and her boobs

The actor that plays Mr. Body is also in WILD LIFE and STREETS OF FIRE. Why is this important? It’s not, really.

WILD LIFE (1984)

Director: Art Linson

Writer: Cameron Crowe

Starring: Eric Stoltz, Chris Penn, Rick Moranis, Lea Thompson, Jenny Wright

This is the forgotten film of the ’80s, but it still served as the template for future teen comedies but the film never gets that acknowledgement. FAST TIMES got all of the attention because of how it dealt with the issue of teen pregnancy. WILD LIFE as all the fun of FAST TIMES, with none of the melodrama. It also features a lazy but somehow note perfect “score” by Eddie Van Halen, who probably just went through his vast collection of recorded licks from 5150 and matched them up accordingly. The film still hasn’t been released on DVD, but it will get its due soon enough.

HELL NIGHT (1981)

Director: Tom DeSimone

Starring: Linda Blair, Vincent Van Patten

Vincent Van Patten is a total noob. I hadn’t seen this since Best of QT Fest in 2006. It’s now OOP, but you can find it if you look. This is my favorite Linda Blair performance, and the first time that she was looked at as a sex symbol. It’s frat horror at its best and I’m sure Platinum Dunes will remake it soon enough…

Fincher Features: SE7EN (1995), PANIC ROOM (2002)

Posted in tallyteers 2010 by dtinnin on June 1, 2010

Date: 5/25    Format: AVI

Director: David Fincher

PANIC ROOM (2002)

Starring: Jodie Foster, K-Stew, Dwight Yoakam, Nicole Kidman’s voice

Tense, funny, horrific and Fincher’s first fantasy film since there is no way you would ever find a Brownstone like that on the Upper West Side. K-Stew before she was a waif phenom and a fun cameo from Nicole Kidman as the woman on the other end of the phone. Kidman was originally set to star, but injured herself on the set of the Grand Guignol-meets-Glee feature film MOULIN ROUGE directed by Baz Luhrmann.

SE7EN (1995)

Starring: Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Lex Luthor and Pepper Potts

For how dark and twisted this film is, it still feels decidedly mainstream and the success of the film was a great example of how audiences can embrace something original and turn it into a cultural event. This is a perfectly conceived and executed film, and if you haven’t seen it in a while, do yourself a favor and let yourself be reminded what an incredible piece of entertainment this is. (The number in the name is its only flaw.)
