Every time I go to the video store, I see lots of movies that I’ve never heard of before, but which seem to be promising. Many aren’t, but I’ve had some pleasant surprises. Do ya’ll have any that you’ve grabbed on the spur of the moment and gotten more than you expected? Or some that made you writhe in agony?
The Good Subteranno The description sounds bad, but it’s amusing and well done, thought I.
Killer Rats Yes, it’s about giant killer rats. It’s still entertaining.
Shark Attack III: I’d say there’s no reason to watch this, but I’d be wrong. The pick-up line the hero uses is a jaw dropper. The movie sucks before and after that point.
Christina’s House Disturbing movie, with hints of incest and creepily gratuitously skimpy clothing on the heroine. An interesting motivation for the villian, though.
I don’t remember ever seeing * 100 Girls * in the theaters, so I’m assuming it was straight to video. Cinemax has been running it recently, and I think it’s a very amusing, well-written movie, heavy on clever dialogue, and well acted with a dorky-cute male lead.
Lissa, I must respectfully disagree. I consider 100 Girls to be a horrible movie. I’ll admit that the main character was endearing, but, gosh… the movie was so bad on so many levels. It seemed like they took several 20 minute plots and wove them together randomly.
And if made for HBO counts, 61*, about the Home Run race between Mantle and Marris, was excellent.
