despite this film's reputation as being one of the original 'video nasties' it's a pretty embarrassing piece of work. a wide eye psycho cruises different bars in new orleans soliciting (then killing) strippers. there's a detective on the case, but you wouldn't know because the other side to this film is his romancing a dame that the rebuffed the psycho's advances. 

if anything- this film can be seen as a travelogue for the new orleans club scene circa 1977-78.

During the weekend I watched this incredible 4-part epic War and Peace. This channel is full of gems.

a fascinating account of the end of times. main dude (who btw has to be the most annoying protagonist in the entire history of cinema) begins seeing parallels betwix happenings around him and 'revelations' in the good book (he literally will see something around him or on the news, then go read about it in the bible). eventually, he manages to convince his wife and friend (and some chick that digs that dude) to get the hell out of town. they join some military christian group who are pretty much waiting for jesus to come back as they ride the wave of the destruction of earth from their "heavily fortified" compound. 

prophetic out of ten

Nightmare Alley - by the numbers noire, but with enough Del Toro quality to make it worthwhile. Had a very 90s era HBO vibe to it, a parable like Tales From the Crypt episodes. Great cast, a few pacing issues, but still a good movie. A-

MST3K quality material here, somehow they roped Peter Cushing into it, and he looks like he was on his last legs

The Tindler Swindler. Fun little docu about a mischievous dude who likes to swindle the ladies, loved it. 

check out The Puppet Master too, imo superior to Swindler (though I enjoyed it)

I watched Moonfall. It was fun seeing a dumb movie like this again, more shit happens in two hours than six seasons of your average streaming shows. Just complete garbage poopoo, loved it.

Lucy & Desi / Being the Ricardos- watched both of these on Amazon, pretty middle of the road.
Lucy & Desi is a documentary of audio recordings set to still images, not super entertaining or really that informative.

Being the Ricardos - the fictionalized version, Kidman and Bardem do their best to look like them, but his accent just doesn’t pass for Cuban sometimes. They had an epic love affair, being separated by WWII, then always being on the road for the first decade of their marriage. She was accused of still being a communist as an adult, which almost killed their show. That, along with being denied serious movie careers, alcoholism, and his love of hookers ended their marriage eventually. Historically, she was one of the most powerful women in the history of Hollywood, she’s responsible for Star Trek as we know it today, and he helped develop the 3 camera system that was used in every sitcom for the rest of the 20th century, and is still used by some legacy shows like The Conners.
