I watched a fantasy movie on Netflix the other night called The Veil. It was nothing spectacular but not bad for a straight-to-DVD movie.

Maniac Cop 2 (1990)

Image

Pretty solid follow up to the original and I was glad to see Bruce Campbell return despite his appearance being brief. This was well paced like the previous film and the new casting was good as well. The action scenes are bigger and at times they're pretty over-the-top. The special effects makeup Robert Z’Dar wears is more gruesome and there are plenty of bloody kills. The climax where he breaks into the prison where he was originally stabbed to death was epic especially when he gets set on fire and still manages to continue his killing spree. I'm definitely looking forward to the third and final installment in this series.

The Middle Finger. An Irish production under the Troma label. I like Troma movies generally but this was even better.

It Came from Outer Space (1953)

Image

I rewatched this as it aired on TCM recently an enjoyed it. Honestly I feel that it's one of the best campy monster movies ever made. The production value is high for the time, the mood and score are eerie throughout and it's full of inventive shots and interesting visuals. Richard Carlson gives a solid performance as an astronomer who witnesses a meteor crash land in the desert which turns out to be an alien spacecraft. Things get complicated when the bug-eyed aliens start impersonating and abducting people in an attempt to repair their ship. I really like the reaction shots of the victims from the aliens perspective. The ending where Carlson's character confronts his own alien doppelganger then blows up the entrance to a mine in order to stop a posse from attacking the aliens is pretty climactic. I would really like to read the Ray Bradbury story this is based on.

Beauty and the Beast - Never really cared for Disney's animated version, but the live action version was pretty good. And nice nods to some Broadway shows that only musical theatre fans would probably notice.

The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946)

Image

This has been on my film noir to watch list for a couple of years now and I'm glad I finally found the opportunity to watch it on TCM On Demand. It's a really interesting story that uses the cliches very well. There are some unexpected plot twists and a couple of strong performances. Not only was Lana Turner an incredible beauty more importantly she was a phenomenal talent. She falls right into the role of femme fatale here and plays the hell of out it. She also has great on-screen chemistry with her co-star John Garfield. Their love hate relationship really carries the film and makes the ending all the more tragic.
