Mandy. Trippy as F**K revenge flick by the same director who did Beyond the Black Rainbow. Probably one of the the neatest visual styles of any filmmaker I've seen since forever. Not a ton of dialog and not for a person wanting a more "normal" storytelling style as everyone is whacked out of their gourds the whole time. All those caveats duly noted; great flick.

It is probably as bizarre as I would want to go in a movie while still being semi-coherent. The visuals are just amazing and the tripped out visceral-ness(?) of it is off the charts.

Mandy.

Hot Fuzz is awesome as well. Maggie was solid but didn't really trip my trigger enough one way or another.

I had zero intentions of watching this just because of the name and picture shown on Netflix. A clown. Clowns are not scary. Clowns are not entertaining. So sick of this clown bullshit. However, a couple people who I respect their opinions actually enjoyed this movie, so I caved and watched it.

It's low budget. it looks low budget (the filming and the acting are lackluster). The gore is really done well though. The movie itself was entertaining as fuck to me for some reason. The Clown isn't really a clown... he just happens to be a fucking clown (i know that makes no sense). He makes no sound whatsoever in the movie and he's just a fucked up dude who does really fucked up things. The "drag" stuff had me rolling.

Good gore. laughable fun horror that is in no way supposed to be a comedy. Terrible paranormal crap BS ending that ruined the fun of it all, but that was just like an extra thing they threw in.

Good for a mindless watch.

Watched this last night and agree completely. The actor who portrayed the clown did great. He was actually very funny; even if the subject matter was not :lol: FX were great.

Sleight: 6/10

As a slightly obsessed sleight of hand dork from childhood, I remember wanting to see this when I saw the preview; was sort of cool. Weird situation, but ok.

Re-Watched the first half of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy last night. I LOVED the books as a kid; despite my normal hatred for most everything science-fiction related, at least in book form. I'd seen the film years ago and enjoyed it and there was nothing else to kill time before the Sinner finale; so that was it.

Excellent cast, great performances. It's a little too, um nerd?; for my tastes. I'm a dork, but in a different sense and there are certain "put on my Star Trek pajamas and recite Dr. Who quotes" shows/movies that feel awkward with me for whatever reason :lol: Looking forward to finishing the second half this evening if time allows. Curious how it holds up against the book as I bet the last time I read the book was AT LEAST 30 years ago if not more.

BTW I enjoyed the movie version of Hitchhiker's but the TV show was far superior.

I didn't know about the series, either. And ~ heresy! ~ I've never read the books. :o But Mrs. Drae and I dig the film pretty well. But we're fans of Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett, and those influences share some geography with Adams' work (esp. Pratchett). I like Mos Def, too ~ he was one of the best parts of the remake of The Italian Job. :D
