    I'm just surprised that Mal was that "kind" to (what I presume is) the original version of Hobgoblins; I mean, I had the benefit of Mike & the bots' riffs to get me through it, and even then that... thing Rick Sloane unleashed on the world was still pure agony to get through, and one of the worst movies they ever featured:



    "I'm sorry sir, but, there's been an accident at the studio..."
    "...we made Hobgoblins."

    I watched Happiness today. Been intrigued for a long time but always put it off because I've never been a fan of Solondz and this movie in particular has quite the reputation for being... well... super Solondz-y. Anyway, I loved it. The cast is perfect -- anything less than 100% commitment from the actors would've been horrid with such a deranged script, but they were totally dialed-in, resulting in scene after scene of disturbing and hilarious highlights.

    Crocodile Dundee II was decent enough. Never saw the Clint movie. Hobgoblins is awful and the MST3K episode featuring it is gold

    Umm...if youre in the mood for action/thriller, Bastille Day aka The Take on Netflix. Idris Elba whippin ass and taking names. Its not A++ or anything, but I enjoyed it.

    My favorite go-to with limited time is The Set-Up clocking in at 73 minutes. It should be on Criterion for the rest of this month.

    Instagram scam seemingly designed for Film Twitter: posing as director Apichatpong Weerasethakul to ask you for travel money back from Cannes, with a promise of filming UNCLE BOONMEE 2 in return, LOL.

    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    Now this is making me wonder what Uncle Boonmee Who Can Remember His Past Life 2 would look like.

    Can I suggest Terror at Blood Fart Lake as an MC group viewing?

    It's free on Prime.
