10:31 am - Baby Blue
Trisk has updated with the latest review, The Baby from 1974.

It's about a man who has been raised to be nothing more than a baby by his abusive family.  It's pretty ballsy subject matter, pushing the envelope of the 70s by a fair bit.  It's rough to watch.

10:58 pm - Movie Sign!
Hello all of three people still with eyeballs here...

I've been messing around with the service/app Rabb.it for awhile now.  It's a thing that lets you stream content like YouTube and Netflix and Amazon Prime etc etc with friends online, to watch stuff together, with chat and optional voice/video, but I've stuck with chat so far.

I love the idea, because some people will remember all of us hanging out and watching Babylon 5 when it hit Scifi Channel with reruns.  Plus I love community and chatting.  With my birthday looming a few weeks ago, I decided to pull the trigger and have a get together online to watch some of my favourite bad movies that have been Trisked over the last few years.

Aaaand it was a spectacular non-event, due to various factors.  But I remained undeterred, and tried again during the Super Bowl, and had a bunch of people show up.  Until I started the movies, and people trickled in and tried it out to see how things worked, we kinda just hung out and watched MST3K episodes, and Super Bowl trailers.

It was a LOT of fun.

I have every intention of doing this again.  I would love to do it with movies I have plans to feature on Trisk, because getting more eyeballs on them will make for better jokes and catch things I miss.  But I'm also not above watching good movies we enjoy, or some tv shows (I would love to chill with folks and watch Person of Interest, for example), or whatever.

I do also have the Doomed! documentary about Roger Corman's failed Fantastic Four movie lurking around as a possibility too.

If there's anyone out there that's interested, I'm kinda poking around to see what nights are good for folks.  Right now, Saturday or Sunday evening around 9 is my default idea.

Oh, and just to keep the legacy alive, I'm calling this the "Subreality Cinema".

12:47 pm - Monster Mash
Trisk has a new quick review posted, for the recent release, The Monster.

It's well made, but I couldn't get into it.  I think I had expectations it didn't live up to, and I walked away disappointed.  Now that I know what it is, I think it's a movie I could have grow on me more with repeat viewings.

1:21 am - Huzzah!
Trisk's latest is up, and I run to an obscure little flick called the Galaxy Invader that's sole claim to fame is because it's footage was used in the credits of Pod People, which ever knows from MST3K.

It's such a weird situation, I had to check out what this movie was about.

8:48 pm - Ooja Twooja: Secret of the Ooj!
Trisk has a quickie review for ya on the recent release of Ouija: Origin of Evil.

I'm one of the few people that LIKED the original, but the prequel blows it out of the water, brought to you by Mike Flanagan, who directed Oculus.

1:09 am - Brideshead Revisited
I wish I understood what I just referenced...

*ahem*

Trisk has my latest thing posted, and this week we return to Arkham with Herbert West and Dan Cain, with Bride of Re-Animator!  It's a modern twist on another Bride movie, with some crazy special effects and modular monsters.  Enjoy!

7:48 pm - Comics Next Week
Now being a month out from buying comics, and thinking of things to cut, I decided to drop Earth 2 and Superwoman, realising I can live without those.  Everything else, for now, is a tough cut, save for one or two other books.

I'm up to 52 books, and I'll kindly stick it behind a cut.
Onwards!Collapse )

9:55 am - Heavy Petting
Trisk has just updated with a new quickie review for the new movie, Pet.

The trailer shows you a guy kidnapping a woman and locking her up and tormenting her.  You've seen this movie a hundred times before (Or wisely avoided them, because ew but I love the actors invovled so here I am...) but the trailer is deceptive.  Very deceptive and manipulative.  Because while that stuff is in the movie, it twists into something completely different, and kinda wonderful.

Ahem.

Read my review, won't you?

1:11 am - Friday the New Year
As I have done the last few years, Trisk celebrates the new year with the next Friday the 13th movie, the very ineptly titled, Final Chapter.

So join me for a nice vacation by the lake filled with teens and sex and death.

1:13 am - Merry Triskmas!
And a happy Boxing Day.  Trisk's latest is up, and it's a little slasher flick called To All a Goodnight.

It's barely Christmasy, and I think someone thought that was a catchy title for a horror movie, and struggled to justify it.  They do not succeed.  It's barely Christmas adjacent, and you could strip every mention of Christmas, including Santa's costume, and the movie would not change at all.
