Time to kick this off!
Rewatched The Goonies the other day and it’s a blast even after all this time. Lately, I’ve had a hard time focusing on quality stuff so I’ve been watching a lot of creature features. I do enjoy them and they’re pretty easy to watch. Leviathan was a fun one that was on my list for a few years. Of course, they play it often OTA so I didn’t need to watch it on Roku but meh 😛
Caught Sleepaway Camp the other day and that was fun. Got Slumber Party Massacre on the docket for this weekend. It’s been on the watchlist for twenty years! 😛
Slumber Party Massacre was a riot! Worth every minute! 😀
Yes, the Goondocks, hey that’s – we’re in it. (Aside: Probably a good thing with own water as it is getting expensive around the city up north.)
Well, a “quality” creature feature – see what you mean – a popular one here on FTA that came close was Rampage.
Oh, you mean the 2021 version? The 1982 version doesn’t rate well compared to Sleepaway Camp, for instance.
Almost completed the first season of Wayward Pines – working well for me though it’s not quite classic grade.
The state FTA are screening the Documentary Now shows, wow, the “DRONEZ: The Hunt for El Chingon” episode is actually quite alarming as they release footage indicating the sudden demise of journalists at the hands of drug thugs.
Another one relates the story of The Blue Jean Committee “Catalina Breeze“.
The channel is also flooding us with more Armisen, this time, Portlandia. Fast paced, punchy comedy routines, which strikes out in all directions, so making it quite unique. There’s of whiff of Seinfeld, The Goodies, Goons, and even The Big Bang Theory (detracts for me – not being a fan).
Pity it had to end though. 🙁
Will take a look at Rampage. It’s actually been on Hulu’s home page for a few weeks now, pestering me to watch it 😛
Sorry! I watched the original one. I really need to get better at linking the film pages 😛
Documentary Now! is locked behind a paywall here. 🙁 Hopefully I’ll get to watch it at some point!
Will keep an eye out for Portlandia!
I’ve noticed that horror films from independent studios tend to be a bit more fun than those from the big names. At least, I tend to like them more. 😛
For some reason, though, I have a hard time enjoying newer horror films. Anything made since 2010, I find strangely boring. Not sure why. I really should get back to watching decent stuff again, though 😛
Saw Puppet Master yesterday and that was fun. They really did a good job with the puppets!
My goodness, that’s going back a bit again. Those kinds of movies are the spookiest of all, the PuppetMaster movies feature prominently on the Horror Movies with Dolls list.
They used to play the made for television Trilogy of Terror on late night TV, here’s the promo:
They are repeating Robot Wars on FTA again, it was kind of fun while it lasted, the problem ultimately ended up as sponsorship, what respectable and trusted corporation is ever going to fund a .5 ton mean mechanoid of mayhem?
Cool! I think Roku has Trilogy of Terror so will add it to the watchlist! I really enjoy these older horror films. Much better than more recent ones! I’m also finding I enjoy the unrated ones more than ones with ratings as they’re not as constrained by the ratings outfits so they’re able to put more into them. Some of it is budget related, too 😛
Saw Cannibal Girls yesterday. It was a really good thriller but I wouldn’t call it a comedy. It did have a few chuckles in it but if there was more, it was lost on me.
Roku has a lot of horror classics available on the Roku Channel!
I liked Robot Wars a lot. I haven’t seen it in almost ten years! Yeah, it and Battle Bots come and go over here. At the high school level, the equivalents have been going strong for a while but upper level competitions don’t seem to last. Really makes me sad 🙁
