You have a unique taste in movies, in a good way! I enjoy Hellraiser, but haven't seen anymore. I might have to fix that seeing how high you have Hellraiser 3.

Since you've mentioned it, what's your thoughts on Leprechaun in the Hood? I haven't seen it so I don't know if you genuinely love it, it's a so good it's bad movie or it's a joke number one. Whatever way, it's a very unique number one. :)

Hmm... I do genuinely love it. It's certainly not as bad as it could be. The one after it (Back 2 tha Hood) is atrocious. Hardly any effort put into it at all.
Mostly it just makes me laugh. It is more of a comedy than a horror and it's meant to be. Personally, I think it's rather balanced for such a ridiculous movie. Some parts of it are quite bad though.
I enjoyed Anthony Montgomery's role as Postmaster P, and I love Warwick Davis no matter what he does.
I'm very biased though. Leprechaun in the Hood is like a hot cup of coco to me. I'm sure it's not everybody's... cup of coco however.

Great answer, I'm glad you get so much out of it. I'm wondering, have you seen Vampire's Kiss? It's probably my Leprechaun, many people don't like it, but I love it!

I've seen a few episodes of it. Some of it was quite funny. Not sure about all of it though. haha I need to watch the whole thing in the right order and see how I feel about it.
I still need to see An Idiot Abroad. I have a few things he's done to catch up on still.

Possibly. I haven't seen it, but looking it up on IMDb, I can see that it's an 80's horror, which is probably my favourite genre and era. I'll put it on my very long list of movies to watch. Thank you for mentioning it. :)

Pretty much. I don't even know why I sat through the whole thing. It's basically just a shock film. There's not really anything more to it, which annoyed me more than anything. It just seemed really pointless. The content is not very nice either, but I could handle that if there was some kind of point to it. Bleh.

If you want to see Sleepaway Camp, don't let the ending be spoiled for you. It's an amazing wtf ending! But people talk about it freely, so watch out.

***SPOILERS***
(Sorry, don't want to spoil it for other people.)
It was interesting when you think about it and realise how messed up the situation actually is.
I mean, basically his whole family died and immediately after his crazy aunt makes him live as a girl. Then he almost gets raped as soon as he reaches camp. He's probably like 12 or so and just going through puberty too, struggling with his sexuality and hiding his real gender amongst all these awful kids.
It would have made a good movie if it wasn't so poorly done. So I feel kind of confused about it. On the one hand, you want to pass it off as a silly b-movie, and on the other hand, it's actually an interesting story.

************Spoilers for Sleepaway Camp********
I'm glad you set it up so people don't accidentally read it. I knew what I was in for as soon as that girl murdered everyone. :) That was very poorly done, but it put a smile on my face. What about that weird scene where it hints at incest as the camera circles around the bed. Very weird. Oh, those bees did a lot of damage in such a short time. :)

****SPOILERS FOR SLEEPAWAY CAMP****
That scene and the one with their father and his lover were the most confusing scenes. There are some theories on IMDb if you want to try reading around the trolls and whatnot. I'm still not sure what exactly those scenes were trying to say.
That bee scene drove me crazy. He could have just crawled out from under the door! I was yelling at him through the screen. haha
Great recommendation.

Hmm, what can I say without spoiling too much... It's not quite as advertised and it made me feel a little insulted. It was interesting and the backdrop of the California desert was very nice. I'd probably give 3 out of 5. I'm not sure how much that helps. Heh.

It's not that I don't appreciate 80's cheese or monster movies, it's more that I just haven't gotten around to watching most of the films you recommend. I really want to see Ghostbusters, in fact I may get around to watching it very soon. It's on Nexflix, so maybe if i have some spare time tomorrow I'll give it a shot, then get back to you later. . . Die Hard is on my 'Want-to-see' list as well, despite what trailers of DH5 are making me want to do to myself. As for Alien, I never really felt a strong urge to see it, but after seeing the love you and many other flickcharters give it, I think I may give it a shot if I see it around. Gotta love James Cameron (spontaneously bursts into song/south park reference)! Speaking of monsters, I see that you really like Leprechaun and Willow, which begs me to ask, are you a big Warwick Davis fan? I've seen him in many Ricky Gervais shows like Life's too Short and An Idiot Abroad, but not in many of his film roles (aside from the minor ones, Return of the Jedi, Harry Potter, Hitchhiker's Guide, etc.). Would you recommend his big theatrical 'vehicles' for people who know him from his TV stuff?

I've been in love with the Alien franchise for ages, though as I've gotten older, the last two seem to have gotten worse and the first two seem even better. And wow do they look good on Blu-ray! Especially the second one. The last two aren't great though.

Yes, Warwick Davis is my favourite actor! I'm a huge fan. I have his autobiography and everything. I was so excited to get it that I read it through in almost one sitting. I've been a big fan of his for about 14 years I guess. The Leprechaun films are my favourites, even though most of them are pretty awful. They're just fun. :)

The best film he's had a major role in was probably Willow. Classic 80's fantasy adventure.

Leprechaun in the Hood is "good" if you're up for a stupid horror-comedy with a Leprechaun rap at the end of it. I think it's hilarious, but I'm ridiculous. Really, I laugh at very stupid things. I'm like a ten year-old.

You don't need to watch the Leprechaun films in any particular order because they're all supposed to be different leprechauns, except for the last two. The 6th (and last so far) is the worst if you ask me. They're doing a reboot but it's with another actor and I'm not interested. I think it will be normal bad as opposed to fun bad.

I don't think Warwick's humour comes across much in most of his films, which is what you'd be used to seeing on An Idiot Abroad and Life's Too Short. I think his humour comes across best live personally (though he makes really bad jokes, haha), but those two shows were quite fun.

Some of the films he's been in have been just awful, in my opinion. The worst was probably Small Town Folk, with Skinned Deep in second place for being ultra bad. Snow White: The Fairest of Them All was also really bad, but it had some pretty funny moments, though nothing intentional. (Rainbow!) I really don't recommend Small Town Folk at all. That one belongs in the garbage. haha

I grew up on Warwick Davis and I have a pretty awful sense of humour myself, so I kind of like the way a lot of his output is complete rubbish. I'm sure most people probably won't like a lot of it though, so keep that in mind. It might be an acquired taste. :)

So, under your recommendation, I just watched Ghostbusters. And thank you, ever so much. It was quite good. It's got a definite flavor and style that you don't see much anymore. It reminds me of movies like Back to the Future and Roger Rabbit. Hell, if I grew up with it, It'd probably be a lot higher on my list! I loved Bill Murray's performance, and the writing was superb. I find it's 25 spot on the site's overall chart to be a bit much, but hey, I'm glad it has a following. One question though; What was up with the scene where Dan Akroyd gets a blowjob off a ghost?
Well, anyway, thanks for recommending this to me, and I'll certainly keep my eyes peeled for anything else you may want me to see, because this was certainly a success!

I think that's why Ghostbusters is so far up on the list, because so many of us grew up with it. It's was really an iconic part of my childhood. Ghostbusters stuff was everywhere in the mid-80's to early 90's. So many freakin' toys! So many everything. Ghostbusters was just plastered all over everything.

Another film that I can think of with a similar feel is Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. That is a really cool one with its giant sets and backyard adventure. It's aged well. It's still just as good every time I happen to catch it on TV.

Oh wow, I just realised you haven't seen Hook either. Of course this might be another case of nostalgia glasses for me. It's pretty cheesy, but it's sweet and whimsical. I think it captures the spirit of Peter Pan (the book) better than any other adaptation I've seen, and it doesn't even follow the story. Not exactly. Julia Roberts is really cute in it too.

What's the deal with the blowjob scene? Haha, it was the early 80's; lots of strange stuff like that was slipped into all kinds of movies. Around 1985 was when they started cracking down on things like that. It just went over most kids' heads. It was a very different time.

How was Arrietty? I haven't seen too many Ghibli films (aside from Spirited and Totoro) so would you recommend Arrietty as a further introduction to some of Ghibli's other works?

I really liked Arrietty, but my friend didn't like it as much as I did. It was a very slow, almost languid, atmospheric film. The ending was open-ended, which is probably what he didn't like. It didn't really have typical pacing. It was very pretty and it made me want to read the book series it was based on. I found it mostly very relaxing.

I recommend Howl's Moving Castle, Nausicaa and Princess Mononoke. Oh, and Kiki's Delivery Service. And Porco Rosso. Hehe, that must be most of them.

Nausicaa and Mononoke are similar (almost the same story really) but Mononoke is more typical I guess. I prefer Nausicaa personally. It's more alien and dreamlike.

Howl's Moving Castle is fun, sweet and very magical. It's based on my favourite book of the same name, by Dianna Wynne Jones. It starts out very similar to the book and then goes into crazy Miyazake territory, which works really well for it. They become quite different and I like them both. However I must insist on listening to the original language. Howl should never be Batman. ;)

Kiki's is cute and about becoming a teenager, well, a witch teenager. Mostly I just like Jiji, her cat. It's not a very deep film, but it's nice.

I'm not sure how to describe Porco Rosso... It kind of seems more grown up compared to the other films. I remember really liking it when I saw it, but it's been quite some time now. I think it's pretty different to most of his films.

Ponyo was quite pretty, especially on Blu-ray, but it felt like kind of a let down, I think because of the odd pacing, where it felt like maybe it was building up to something but forgot somewhere along the way and fizzled out. There really wasn't much of a plot to speak of, but it was still nice.

One Ghibli film that Miyazaki didn't direct was The Cat Returns, and I recommend it simply for how weird it is. Nothing really deep about that one either, but it was a funny little strange movie about a girl and some cats.

Nice recommendations! I'll be sure to check some of those out! Sorry for the late reply, anything that isn't on my page I stubbornly ignore like a dog with a fear of cats who pretends to be blind while being walked into the veterinary clinic.

I'll be sure to check out some of those Ghibli flicks. By the way, Miazaki is apparently retiring now. Whaaat do you think about this?

Sorry for my late reply as well. I wish I could get email notifications for these.

I think he's earned it and left a lot of beautiful films in his wake. I wonder if he ever really will or if he'll just keep coming back to do this and that.

I think we're lucky he's been around so long, unlike another brilliant anime director, Satoshi Kon, who was only with us until he was 46.

I recommend his films as well, though his work is certainly darker than Miyazaki's. Paprika is my favourite of his (gorgeous on Blu-ray). Though Perfect Blue was very interesting as well, and Tokyo Godfathers was nice too.

Sorry my reply is so late. I really didn't like Spider at all. It was extremely slow and boring, and the "twist" was very obvious. I'm pretty shocked that Cronenberg made this, as in a lot of ways, it seemed quite amateurish.

Hey there, I saw your review of Ravenous on RYM and really enjoyed it, even though I disagree with your conclusion. I really just created this account to get into contact with you as I suspended from RYM about a year ago and have been passing through ever since. But I love taste in cheesy cult films and enjoy your personality. That is all of substance I have to add at the moment so i'll be gone for now. But, keep up the good work and stay awesome anyways!
