    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

    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.

    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.

    It's the kind of movie where it's possible to read pretty much every detail one way or the other, making for endless possibilities, which results in a nice meta-commentary on the very nature of film itself, since, why does it matter if everything is really happening here or not, since we don't care if every other movie ever made is technically a false reality of its own?

    I thought it was pretty clear about the ending.

    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why haven’t entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    I agree that it's clear about the ending, but disagree "it's possible to read pretty much every detail one way or the other."

    For one, the movie doesn't take its premise too seriously. It's content to be dumb fun. It might make a weird suggestion here and there, but really it's just biding its time until the next 3-titted mutant appears or the next set piece gets rolling.

    For another, Arnold is too big a presence, both figuratively and literally, to sell the idea the character might be delusional, regardless of what's said in dialogue. This is the same guy from "Commando" and "Predator." He's a movie star. All of these qualities work against the movie's supposed ambiguity. Arnold's limitations as an actor don't help, either.

    Also, these strike me as wild assertions:

    why does it matter if everything is really happening here or not,
    since we don't care if every other movie ever made is technically a false reality of its own?
    The first makes action-suspense virtually impossible, ie, it matters because otherwise nobody would be caught up in the story.

    The second
    - depends too much on the word technically
    - only applies in certain narrow contexts (people absolutely care when it comes to true crime or biopics, for example)
    - brushes aside suspension of disbelief as an essential tool of fiction

    Total Recall is great and all but in the end it's a ultra violent sci-fi action movie that had a really Hollywood ending. I will say that the film is one of Arnold's best roles, or maybe even his best. I've been a fan of it for years. Not sure why a remake exists, although hey Hollywood loves to do that predictable sort of thing.
