The Young Poisoner's Handbook

Posted by knobbygirl

A cross between A Clockwork Orange and The Butcher Boy.

I had been wanting to see this for a long time - there used to be a poster in the window of the Video Update I used to go to, before it burned down anyway...Just having the word 'poisoner' in the title was good enough for me...it just sounds sick.

I was pleased to find out that the film was indeed based on a true story, though all the books I could find about Graham Young on Amazon.com were long out of print. I guess I will have to go to a library or something.

X-Men

Posted by knobbygirl

I enjoyed the hell out of it, even though I have never read an X-Men comic in my life.

The Norseman

Posted by knobbygirl

This is quite possibly, the worst film I have ever seen in my entire life. I know I throw that statement around a lot, but this is the tops - worse than my usual triumverate of 'worst' films, The Flintstones, Prince of Darkness and Showgirls.

Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo

Posted by knobbygirl

Okay - he's a male prostitute that doesn't fuck any of his clients. That's just wrong.

That's right, he doesn't fuck any of them, except for the one he falls in love with and she's gorgeous. She only has one leg, but she is gorgeous nonetheless. Sorry to have spoiled it for you, but it's a R movie, for chrissakes. You had to expect more than that.

Sleepy Hollow

Posted by knobbygirl

Cleavage!

I saw this when it originally came out in the theaters and I remember leaving the theater vaguely disappointed. After renting it, I still can't put my finger on why. It was beautifully filmed, it had a decent cast and an amazing director. This is definitely a case where the individual parts are greater than the sum of the whole. Don't get me wrong, I liked it a lot, but maybe I was expecting too much...

Mondo Trasho

Posted by knobbygirl

Hmmm...I can't decide if it sucked or I loved it...

Reminds me of the dumb crap we made when we were in college, so maybe that means I liked it...and I thought Orpheus in Hollywood was hard to understand...

Desperate Living

Posted by knobbygirl

This is it...as of now, I have seen every single John Water film that is available to be seen...and I saved the most fucked-up for last!

Divine isn't in it - but it's still great. Jean Hill more than fills the space vacated by Divine (literally and figuratively). David Lochary is sadly missed from this one as well...
