The Evil Dead (1981)
This fun, gory B-movie makes up in inventiveness what it lacks in production value.
The film has some truly funny moments, but it gets bogged down in an overlong opening that is practically a different movie from the rest of the film.
OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies (2006)
This is a pretty funny French spy thriller parody, though I can’t figure out if it’s a brilliant satire of European colonialism or merely a thinly veiled criticism of Bush's foreign policy.
I found the main character repulsive in this film in which a whole lot of nothing happens for the first half of the film, and when he discovers a murder and things start to get interesting, a whole lot more nothing happens and nothing is resolved.
The Incredible Mr. Limpet (1964)
While I’m sure I would have liked it as a kid, I found the whole thing little more than silly and amusing fun, yet largely unforgettable.
Coming up next: 3 intense movies and 2 homecomings.
