    Almost a year ago in fact.

    The Stendhal Syndrome, Rubber, She's Out of My League, The Straight Story, Monsters, Gumball 3000: Coast to Coast:
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2011/...sings-art.html

    Rubber:
    The movie about a killer car tyre - who the hell wouldn't want to see it?! Well, half of it anyway. The half that follows the tyre discovering its powers and exploding heads is enjoyably daft ... but the other half is an eye-rollingly pretentious load of old bollocks, that is so self aware it's not in the slightest bit funny, witty, or entertaining. If all that wasn't in the movie, it'd be a spiffing 40 minutes - or personally, I would have gone in a different direction with such an idea as a killer car tyre.

    The opening monologue, about "no reason", is apparently supposed to be ironic. Now, is that because none of the examples given demonstrate "no reason" at all, or is it ironic for another reason and the annoying monologue is actually being serious? I enjoyed the silliness of the cop arriving in the trunk of a police car, which knocked over a series of chairs in the middle of a road, but for goodness sake I didn't need the poncy-arsed bullshit that came afterwards and was dotted throughout the movie. So it's a very split flick - one half of it is total crap that thinks far too much of itself, and the other half is an enjoyable askew idea of a killer car tyre blowing up people's heads in and around the desert motel that was memorably featured in Rob Zombie's wonderful The Devil's Rejects.
    In my new review parlance (as seen here - http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2012/...rying-out.html), Rubber would be deemed "half good and half shite".

    So, you have to ask yourself why, exactly, did MZ review this movie?

    No reason.

    And why exactly was this movie made in the first place?

    No reason.





    Awesome MZ, I didn't notice that review when it went up. Glad I wasn't the only one who subjected his brain to that.. ummm..... "movie"

    haha ... nope, no reason at all ... now if you'll excuse me, there's a car boot I've gotta climb into so the driver can knock over a bunch of chairs on this abandoned desert road...

    Yeah, I thought She's Out of My League, was fun too, MZ. Not great, maybe, but fun.

    I've totally forgotten what that line is - refresh my memory.

    How could you possibly forget that line in the movie?! It was one of the funniest lines in it!

    She walked into the house and announced to her husband, "“Get yourself hard, 'cause I'm gonna suck your d*ck like I'm mad at it!" - and when she walks into the room, there is her husband.....sitting there with his mom!

    I think you need to go back and re-watch it now.

    Oh yeah, now I remember ... yeah, one of the handful of decent lines in the movie ... but the whole thing was rather forgettable generally though.

    I agree, but that was one of the greatest lines ever uttered in a motion picture!

    Phantom of Death aka Off Balance (Ruggero Deodato, 1988) DVD Review:
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2012/...dato-1988.html

    If you want to see Donald Pleasance screaming wildly in front of startled Italians, then perhaps this is the movie for you.

    I think not. I respectfully and wholeheartedly disagree. Anytime a woman tells me she's going to suck me off like she's mad at it, that shit trumps anything ever said in the history of mankind, period!




    At least at that moment in time.

    Who Saw Her Die? (Aldo Lado, 1972) DVD Review:
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2012/...-1972-dvd.html

    This atmospheric giallo thriller treads similar ground to Nicolas Roeg's "Don't Look Now", but it pre-dates it by a year.

    The Strange Vice of Mrs Wardh (Sergio Martino, 1971):
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2012/...dh-sergio.html

    A supreme example of the giallo genre, mixing artistry with sleaze, and featuring the stunning Edwige Fenech. If you haven't seen it yet, or are looking for a good place to start getting into the giallo genre, then look no further. Well worth seeing!

    Thanks MZ! I've been looking for a good Giallo, as I haven't seen any in a long while now it seems. I'll give this one a go.
