This has been bothering me for the longest time.

OK, so, a long time back I saw this Swedish/Norwegian/Finnish movie about a man who worked for some sort of kitchen appliance company, who was sent to do research about men in their kitchens. He is assigned to this grumpy old man (who, of course, he later befriends), and sits in the corner of his kitchen in a really big chair and takes notes on him. The poster of the movie showed the researcher in his chair.

Does anyone know the name of this movie?

I am looking for the titles of these horror films I used to watch as a kid on Saturday thriller double features starting at noon on Saturdays in the late 70s /early 80s (they also showed movies such as Daughters of Darkness and Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things). The first one has campers being killed off by a hag who dwells in the woods- the end has the campers making a booby-trap for the woman where once triggered it impales her with a VERY large wooden stake that goes through her middle. Also at the end you see her muddy face for the first time as she dies.
The second one I can remember very little details of except that it involves women being put into a cage and dumped multiple times in water (at a waterfront) if they are believed to be witches by the townsfolk…I think all the characters were dressed like Quakers so the setting might be a few hundred years ago.

Last one- this was on cable in the 80s- it has at the very end people running out of a collapsing building and also shows a creature with blue skin, maybe purple, in a grim reaper outfit and a forehead that looks as though it had a rapidly beating heart underneath it.

If anyone could give me some suggestions I would be very appreciative, I have been looking for these titles for years.

Schindler's List [13 May 2005|01:28pm]


Schindler's List has reached thedailymovie. Make sure you have your say.

MEAN CREEK [25 Jan 2005|01:12pm]

Well, since I live in a crappy town and have to wait for independent stuff to come out on DVD. I finally saw Mean Creek. I didnt know what to really think about it when I read the back of the cover it reminded me of Bully( a great film in itself). When I watched it I was so suprised. I guess it was something about the innocence of all the kids that made it so appealing and the ending was just so tragic. I dont know if anyone has seen it. Its out today (I got to see it early since I work at Blockbuster) but it really was a great movie.

don cheadle is god [07 Jan 2005|09:38pm]

today i saw "hotel rwanda." all apathetic posturing aside, this is the best movie i have seen this oscar season. yes better than ray or whatever else is in the running. is don cheadle better than jaime foxx? i haven't decided yet. everybody, run out and give these people your money. it is in ONE theatre in the east bay. it needs to be in more.

[08 Nov 2004|03:15pm]

hi there, i just joined, love moves ect. trust me, i make the cut.

anywey, i recently saw Mulhulland Drive, and holy crap, this movie was the biggest mind fuck ive ever seen. I think (After watching it 5 times) i have the general idea, but for anyone who is really into psyhlogical films, you will NOT understand this one the first time through.

ohh yeah, and nothing beats lesbian sex scenes! even if they confuse the hell out of you!

[ mood | dorky ]

Anyone watch Bio Zombie or Versus? Good fucking stuff.

Lady Killers sucked. All the way through. I didn't even see Bruce Campbell, I feel ashamed.

Spiderman 2 rocked ass. Blew the fuck out of the first, probobly because I hated the first. But this one actualy has a great plot....

Want to see:
Napoleon Dynamite
The Garden State
Triplettes of Bellville
Kill Bill vol. 2
.... other stuff...

WTF was up with Lost in Translation anyhow. I don't get it. But I still like it... but it was stupid... but okay... n/m. It's horrible, but catchy.

Yay for Hitchcock bashing... [01 Sep 2004|10:15am]

[ mood | cynical ]

Sorry about pimping sart_04 the other day, *sigh* peer pressure is so hard to overcome..

Anyway. The other day I bought and watched the original 'Psycho' on DVD for the first time, and let me just say it was not all it was cracked up to be.

*anticipates being bitch-slapped by oh-so-rightious film buffs*

I was so disappointed by the shower scene: L-A-M-E. I can sort of see how it would have been 'shocking' and 'controversial' at the time - but does that mean I have to pretend to enjoy it now? hell no. 

I mean, sure, hitchcock is the master of suspense and yadda yadda, cool violins ect, revolutionary techniques and so on - BUT THAT WAS THEN. compared with modern movies (probably which would not have been any good without the earlier advances that AH made), PSYCHO is very mediochre indeed. And trust me, its impossible to set your mind back to what it would have been like in the 60s seeing this film - you can try but it won't work. 

I guess what I'm getting at here is that there is  a difference between good quality and entertainment value, and I think that lots of people think that if a film is well made, then its got to be entertaining as well.

agree/disagree? have a rant.

having said all this there were 2 things in PSYCHO witch I really loved though. firstly the characterisation of Bates, and secondly the very end two shots - where Bates smiles slowly and a skull is breifly super-imposed over his face - and the dragging the car out of the swamp accompanied by omnious music: v. spine chilling 

please have a rant.

FINALLY!!! [27 Aug 2004|08:40pm]

[ mood | cheerful ]

hey everyone well I finally got to see Garden State today. I finally broke down and paid for a movie seeing as how I'm going to have to start doing it anyway. I only did it cause the only place it was was at the Bijou. But is by far my favorite movie that has come out this year. There arent many prospects of beating that too except for maybe "The Life Aquatic" which looks really good. Here are my top 5 summer movies.

1.Garden State-like I said best movie I have saw this year
2.Napoleon Dynamite-Flippin Sweet movie
3.Dodgeball-Very good concept and one hell of a funny movie
4.The Village-I dont care what the critics said about this movie I loved the ending
5.Saved!-This was such a good movie as a person who questions god a lot this movie was great

Well goodbye everyone

Godsend. [24 Aug 2004|02:12pm]

[ mood | annoyed ]

Godsend had the worst ending ever. The entire movie wasn't even that good. They had four different endings on the dvd, and any ending would have been better than the original ending. Why the hell directors choose the happiest ending, I will never know...
