Get it, because Marky Mark?

But really, the 2001 version is terrible on just about every front. Skip it and you will sleep at night.

Seeing The Gunslinger on screen is cool I just wanted more of that and less focus on the stupid kid, nobody wanted Harry Potter and the gunslinger, who is this film aimed at

Jake actually gets pushed into traffic in one world and falls down a cliff in another in King's version kill da kid off
This movie was completely forgettable. I recall my frozen Coke and popcorn more than anything on screen

The only thing I can defend in that film is the effects/character designs of the apes. Don't know how Burton fucked up such great source material with a top-notch cast (Mawky Mawk aside).

I'll be curious to know what your kids make of the old films. Escape is my personal favorite. It's just so fucking... weird.

Battle Royale - 5/5

Holy crap this movie was great. Lots of arterial spray, campiness in the right amounts and some nice character moments. My favorite girl didn't make it tho, that was sad.

Yeah I'm looking forward to seeing these. I thought they would laugh at Jaws but they were totally into it. And A Nightmare on Elm St gave the older one nightmares (the younger one wasn't allowed to watch it). So I'm curious, too.

My husband wanted to show them Revenge of the Nerds and I was like um, I'm pretty sure that movie involves stalking, and non-consensual sex, and sexual assault, and revenge porn, so let's watch it first.

And oh my god. It is fucking terrible. Like...these nerds are fucking awful nerds.

I remember loving this and thinking that the Hunger Games was a total rip off.

Oh totally. I came from it from the other side, of seeing Hunger Games first.
But it's impossible to not see they drew a LOT of inspiration from Battle Royale.

Yeah, I try to take context into consideration when it comes to looking back on older movies, but Revenge of the Nerds, Animal House, Porky's et al absolutely DO NOT hold on. They are mostly rapey as shit. And even worse, not all that funny either.

Have you and the kids broken into the old Apes flicks yet?

To be honest, I came at it as a Jodorowsky fan that wasn't hugely familiar with Dune.

From what I could tell, though, they did quite a job of creating its look and I suspect that a fan of the book would appreciate seeing how it might have turned out. Jodorowsky is obviously an absolute nutter and the documentary was always going to play off that, but a decent amount of the run time did go into discussing art direction and how they planned to approach the story. Much of what Giger contributed, for example, was later reworked into what became Alien.
