Been loving these lists quietly from the sidelines. I saw Mutant Hunt on your last list, remembered it by it's art and quickly added it. I got a look at the first 20 minutes of it. Man so great, yet so bad. Also, just added Three O'Clock High, saw that movie on cable dozens of times. Keep the lists coming!

Rupert Pupkin said...

Thanks so much Dylan! Glad you're checking out the lists and enjoying them. MUTANT HUNT is definitely one of those VHS boxes I saw a ton in video stores when I was growing up. Pretty fun film.And don't get me started on THREE O'CLOCK HIGH! I adore that movie. More than I should probably, but I just think it's fantastic and still a bit under-appreciated.

1. THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY(1978; Robert Klane) is not on instant watch. FYI.

Love the lists!

Rupert Pupkin said...

C-thanks for the heads up! I start drafting these lists sometimes weeks out and fill them in over time. Guess that film got yanked off Instant recently. Bummer. I shuffled some stuff around in its place.

I had no idea R.O.T.O.R. was on Watch Instantly, that's great news that I can pass onto my readers who have wanted to check it out after I reviewed it.

Also, when I added Garbage Pail Kids to my queue, they suggested I check out Confessions of a Shopaholic. Makes sense.

Rupert Pupkin said...

DTVC-Yeah R.O.T.O.R. is in a class by itself. LAND OF DOOM ain't bad either. Hadn't seen your blog before but I just subscribed. Any site that has a review the Robert Davi opus THE BAD PACK is one I'm gonna continue reading.

To all:

As the savvy reviewer on Netflix notes, "Beer" is an incredible comedy that works (while you may be under the influence) the way Cheech 'n' Chong films work. And Dick Shawn's turn is a standout.

Likewise, Michael J. Pollard fans will want to check out "Fast Food." He manages to steal this film from the likes of Jim Varney and Traci Lords by simply standing in the b.g. half the time. Not a good film, but a great performance by a favorite of mine.

Keep 'em coming!
