Wow, is anyone cooler than Franco Nero?  The guy has it all: tanned features, burly forearms, a perpetual morning-after leer, and a steamer trunk full of sweaters and Pendleton flannels. Even in my most generous dreams I'm only half the man he is.

God Bless America

I recently went into a sensory deprivation tank and my introspective reflection was that I should probably stop being so cynical and judgmental.

House on the Edge of the Park

I used to think the people who made these movies were psychopathic narcissists, but now I realize they're probably just guys who go to swingers' clubs.

Last Days Here

Holy Christ, is this some harrowing shit.  I need to take better care of myself.  Now.

Wavy Gravy -- Saint Misbehavin'

Man, how square am I?  Whole time I'm thinkin', "What the hell's wrong with these people?"  Yeesh.

The House with the Laughing Windows

Phil Anselmo likes this so much I expected it to be horribly nightmarish and disturbing.

What a disappointment.

I Spit on Your Grave (2010)

Somehow even more offensive than the original! Is it because its very existence suggests many serious conference calls between studio executives and financiers, all of whom were looking for an advantageous return on investment?  Is it because its existence further suggests the involvement by an even more populous collection of actors, technicians, and union laborers, many of whom probably had serious qualms about re-shooting such a film and yet signed on anyway?  Is it because I still chose to watch this movie in spite of my own knowledge of and qualms regarding its production and promotion?

OR is it just because I watched the 1978 version with the non-stop Joe Bob Briggs audio commentary?

The Larry Sanders Show

The question we have to ask ourselves is: Would you rather be an Artie or would you rather have an Artie?

The lighting was real good.
