    Well, the middle movies, like Serial Mom (Kathleen Turner), Cry-Baby (Johnny Depp), or Polyester may be fun, I do prefer the earlier flicks like desparate Living or Pink Flamingos for the all out assault on normalcy and conventional decency ...

    Forget Hairspray in its various incarnations (OMG - Travolta in Drag!!!) - go for the crazies!

    But waddu I know, I've never been a Baltimoron -
    just one of many who celebrated the town in the 70s before it got "classy" and boring.

    Saw it in high school with a headful of mushrooms. As if it wasn't weird enough on its own and needed embellishment.

    Same here....it was at a midnight show at NYC`s Waverly Theater, double-billed along with Zappa`s "200 Motels"....we were still pretty plugged-in leaving the theater, and everybody was wondering out loud "so, what the fuck WAS that ???" :)

    One of my all-time faves. I love the European feel of this movie and the great cast, De Niro, Reno, Sean Bean, Skarsgard, Jonathan Price and Natasha McElhone.

    Jessica Chastain is amazing in Crimson Peak - her character is both hot AND mental.

    I saw Pink Flamingos in college. The "Surfin' Bird" scene is just so wrong. Ditto the poodle scene.

    Divine was always weird.

     
  10. Small Town Crime (2017)

    In short: An ex-cop that lapsed into alcoholism and dysfunctional behavior upon witnessing the murder of his partner while on duty finds redemption after helping former coworkers on the town's force solve the murder of a local big wig's grandaughter. It's an excellent film that showcases the fragility of a human being who may be circumstancially down, but refuses to be out.

    Starring: John Hawkes (Deadwood), Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), Octavia Spencer (The Help), and Robert Forster (Jackie Brown)

    "Street Kings" (2008) Stars Keanu Reeves, Forest Whittaker, Hugh Laurie, John Corbett, Cedric The Entertainer, Jay Mohr, Common, Chris Evans

    A crime drama/action film, where Veteran LA cop Tom Ludlow (Reeves) finds himself thrown into a jackpot where someone is trying to set him up to look like a cop killer, and hardly anybody can be trusted. Rather formulaic, but a solid script and good character development keep things rolling. Worth watching.

    Freaks is an excellent film. Weird for sure, but it has a heartfelt core. Tod Browning directed.

    I keep coming back to "American Graffiti"...like last night.

    Must be a nostalgia thingy for me.? My grad time was a lot like it with the happy/sad events, except for the more exciting parts in the movie. Plus the music and fun times that went with it.

    The Exception

    I ejected this disc after about 20 minutes. Don't take it as a criticism. I just didn't warm to the casting more than anything.
