It hit when I was in HS, and I had a friend that would quote it all the time, so that annoyed me enough to avoid it for the longest time, but now it's in the semi-annual rotation. Funny flick.

I know Weekend at Bernies II is bad (still proud to say I saw it in the theater) but I enjoy it, just not on the same level as I.

Does it still get the laughs out of you?
post #10964 of 12660

A friend who works at my local video store really built it up - and I've come across a few more fans online who LOVE IT - but while I respect how out there it is, for me the laughs are with the first one.

Watching PRT SEMATARY II.

I just finished the first scene where Edward Furlong's mom dies in the most over the top electrical accident I've ever seen. Just wow, I was laughing hard.



Its almost ASM2 levels of hilarity.

When I saw this directly after the first film, it was like night and day. The initial recognition of "hey that's John Connor and the bald guy from ER!" gave way to really bad rock music as score and terrible acting.

Someone said this the film you get when you bury the first film in the Micmac burial ground. Pretty accurate. It's like the worst traits of the first film cranked up to 11.

It was pretty fantastic.

Mia Farrow.. Damn.. Her transformation as the pregnancy gets closer to term, her paranoia etc.. Excellent.

Although I had heard the audio years ago in elementary school on a Cinemania movie encyclopedia program, her seeing Adrian for the first time was a great buildup.

This also made me realize I need more Polanski in my life.

Also didn't realize how prominent Cassavettes role was..

And Chuck Grodin!


Loved it
post #10978 of 12660

It's almost a black comedy. Cool thing is even though Polanski has his tongue firmly in cheek, it's still disturbingly creepy.

 

I posted this write up elsewhere, but Kim Morgan has an interesting look at it from a female perspective:

The scene of Mia being hysterical on  the phone while everyone tip toes behind her is the perfect example of what you're talking about.

Will always love this one....

 

post #10987 of 12660
Just started:



So far, it's annoying the hell out of me. I hope Drive doesn't end up being the only Refn film that works for me.
post #10988 of 12660

Let us know how annoyed you are after the ending, hahaha. The movie is pretty much bullshit. It's hard to even think of anything real to say about it.

 

The surface of it says "Go ahead, write a thinkpiece about me! I dare you!", and then there's some flashing lights and shit, and then a really half assed Cronenberg wannabe detour, and then it's over.

This movie is fucking stupid. I had to run to the office to take care of a minor emergency, and turned it back on when I got home, against my better judgement.

I'm at the point where Ruby projected her Jesse fantasy onto a cadaver, and I'm about done.

Edit: I got even dumber. I think Nick Refn and I are done, professionally.

Edit 2: I'd like to revise a previous statement: I thought Bronson was brilliant. So, Bronson and Drive were good. But since then, Refn has lodged his head straight up his own ass.

And I now understand yet another reference used in Scream. The whole "parental affair" motive.

Great weightlifting kill btw...

Edit: Speaking of Scream, part 4.. Worth watching, even from a standpoint of wanting to complete the franchise?

ANY redeeming qualities?

I'm not ashamed to say I think SCREAM 4 is the best sequel. It's basically 90's slasher horror VS. the modern tropes. I like the younger cast a lot, and the Williamson dialogue is still pop-fun but it's not as annoying as the sequels.

The worst part is the first 5 minutes, but it gets itself together pretty quick.

Just got done. Yeah, the intro was the weakest of the 4.

Anthony Andersons death was a surprise in this, and his "fuck Bruce Willis" got a chuckle from me.

Question... Can people stop with the stomach stabbing in movies??

Especially when it is such a survivable wound.

STAB IN THE NECK OR HEART.

I think I rate this between 2 and 3..

The motives were "eh".

Not bad.
post #10995 of 12660
Yeah the setup with the cops in the car and Anderson's death was a highlight for me. I remember seeing it with friends and they weirdly hated that moment.
post #10996 of 12660
Raynis did you see all of them in the theater?

The first one was my first drive-in experience during a rainstorm. One of my most memorable.

I dont know where they would have gone after this one, it seemed to wrap everything up as best they could.
post #10997 of 12660

I think NEON DEMON is one of this year's masterpieces. The trick to getting it is to know it's a pitch black comedy.
