    It’s Jabootu’s longest review evahhhhh…..

    Jabootu correspondent Mr. Rational disproves his name by writing what I call a Guest Dissertation. Getting Hollywood to recognize even glaring flaws in popular works (I’m looking at you, James Cameron) is a  daunting task, but Mr. Rational rolled up his sleeves and dived in anyway. It just goes to show that if you star in one of the most amazingly successful TV movies ever, you have a glamorous life of Robot Chicken episodes and appearances in Sucker Punch and Machete Kills in your future.  Anyhoo, as this was made in 2006 (!!!!), its fittingly time for the 10 Year Reunion of their

      I’ll clue you in to a terrific movie

      Murder By DecreeIt’s a mystery worthy of Sherlock Holmes as to why Murder By Decree has drifted into obscurity over the years.

        Bits and pieces

        CC33-science2

         

        A few new things around the blog:

         

        There is a new review in Science In The Reel World.

         

        College Coach (1933) is chiefly a look at the state of American college football in the early 30s, but makes the grade due to the team’s star quarterback being also an aspiring chemist.

         

        There is also a new set of short reviews in Et Al. No overarching theme this time, mostly just what I’ve been watching on the Midday Movie – I can do that now! – although you’ll note a few points of accidental overlap.

         

        And there are a few new bits in Random Film Stuff, but I’ll let you find those for yourselves.

          Is it a movie that stynx?

          The PhynxBarely released to theaters and little seen in the decades that followed, The Phynx all the same has built an extremely bad reputation. Is it really that bad?

            Cannon cops

            Under CoverUnlike many other Golan and Globus productions, Under Cover has been all but forgotten. Which is a shame, because it’s surprisingly good.

              Apparently Karma has decreed that I shall watch only films that are bat**** insane.

                A New Leaf (1971)

                 

                In addition, the Roundtable prompted me to roll over Halloween and Halloween II, as well as Orca.

                  You’ll shed tears of laughter

                  Cry OnionThe spaghetti western Cry Onion is downright insane, which is why it is greatly entertaining.

                    Deadly WeaponOne of the last gasps from Empire Pictures, Deadly Weapon proved to be a especially lame way to make an exit.
