    ★★★★½

    All of those years I had to hear people complain that Leonardo DiCaprio did not have an Oscar. Where is Michael Shannon's Oscar?

    Cherry, Harry & Raquel!

    ★★½

    Hmm...

    Russ Meyer's tale of a crooked cop and the buxom ladies he has encounters with. I haven't done a Saturday Morning sleaze movie in a while and this definitely counts.

    The movie starts and ends with Russ Meyer's philosophical ideas. The beginning is a long text scroll about pollution and nudity while the ending is a narrator about drugs and morals. The middle has a little bit of action, lots of nudity and a little story to go along…

    Memoirs of an Invisible Man

    ★★★★

    This is the first time I have seen this movie and I am not sure how it has alluded me this long. John Carpenter directing Chevy Chase in the early 90s is the sort of thing that gets me really excited for a movie.

    The special effects looked amazing as the invisible man was roaming the city or smoking a cigarette. Chevy Chase and Sam Neil both had to work extra hard to get movements just right to make fight…

    Zombie Shark

    ★★½

    Zombie Shark is a movie I should have liked a lot more than I did. A shark that is from some lab gets free and starts biting people. Those people then become zombies. Seriously, this is a shark movie and a zombie movie. A hybrid of awesomeness...then I saw the movie.

    The shark is really bad CGI, the zombies are extremely unconvincing until they need one or 2 to be convincing to move the story along.

    This should have been a lot better than it was.

    ★★★★

    I will preface this with I have watched a crapload if wrestling over the past few days. Wrestlemania weekend has that effect on me. As I was finishing up Smackdown tonight I was reminded that This documentary would be premiering on HBO. I have been waiting for this since I saw the first trailer months ago. 

    I settled in for a piece of wrestling history, told by historians and people who were there. Then the myths began to come up.…

    ★★★★★

    Yeah, this movie is still excellent. It doesn't matter how many times I have seen it.

    When it comes to zombie horror movies this is the one that will always scratch that itch. With each viewing, I seem to notice something new like the excellent angle of Barbara looking at the music box thing in the house. For some reason that just stood out to me this time. I could go into the history of this or the greatness of…
