Carnival of Souls

Cult Cuts Magazine have posted reviews of both AMONG US and PETER ROTTENTAIL, one of which they liked and one of which they didn't, so today I'm batting fifty percent.

Jon Solita, Illinois filmmaker and one of my roommates at Microcinema Fest, has started posting his thoughts on MCF over at his own blog, where you can read about here to see what somebody else thought about all of it.

Here's today Friday Four meme:

1. What was the first movie you remember seeing?

The Barefoot Executive (1971) at the Sky-Hi drive in. Regular movie theater, maybe Mr. Superinvisible (1973) (as mentioned in Among Us). First R-rated movie, The Blues Brothers (1980).

2. What's the last movie you saw in a theatre?

Fahrenheit 9/11, alternatingly horrifying, hilarious, frustrating.

3. What's the first movie you saw on DVD?

I believe it was Jesus Christ Superstar, which I enjoy watching a couple of times a year. Love Judas' white suit. The first movie I ever saw on HBO was The Last Remake of Beau Geste. The first movie I ever saw on VHS was (I think) MASH.

4. What's the last movie you rented?

I watched the harrowing family drama Thirteen last night bia Netflix and then felt thankful that my daughter plays sports and does well in school.

Give me a yell at

Do you enjoy the Netflix service? Is it worth the 20 bux a month? How many movies do you watch on average a month?

Netflix is the greatest thing ever if:

1. You rent at least six movies a month normally

2. You do not live within 30 minutes of a Blockbuster (I don't)

3. Your mom and pops locally are hit and miss (mine are)

4. You like a lot of foreign, independent, or hard-to-find movies not stocked by above-mentioned stores

I love having it.
