This is one of those rare films that has the ability to astound me. Astonishment based on the fact that it seems inconceivable it could have ever been made. Or that it was made in a pre-irony cinema landscape. Or that it starred "serious" actors such as George C. Scott. Or that they would use taglines to promote it such as:

"The most amazing outdoor adventure ever filmed!"

"Unwittingly He Trained a Dolphin to Kill the President of the United States"

UNWITTINGLY!

I feel like that just about sums up what we got ourselves into this week. I give you Day of the Dolphin my friends.

Take This Job and Shove It (1981)

If there is a hell ... my own personal hell ... its what is seen and represented in this film. Well maybe that's a little hyperbolic ... but not much. This week we watched a blue collar comedy romp starring that guy from Airplane and some other people who cares.

Take This Job and Shove It.

A film almost entirely based on and inspired by a Johnny Paycheck song .............. just let that sink in.

Beer drinking ... monster truck driving and a complete lack of basic economic understanding. Yes mistakes were made.

Empire of the Ants (1977)

Sometimes late at night, when I'm alone with my thoughts ... my deep dark thoughts. I think to myself ... self ... what would it be like if giant radioactive ants took over the world? Or at least a small rural town near a sugar factory. Would I have the courage to face my fears and fight the terrible insect menace?! This movie answers all those questions and many more I'd never thought of.

Empire of the Ants!

This "film" was truly a joy. Ants! People fighting ants! People being attacked and eaten by ants! .... Joan Collins? ... whatever just listen!

A while back Andrew's brother James took a trip to Japan. I was as envious as Andrew was annoyed. Today we further annoy him by watching The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. A well loved Japanese anime James added to the list a while back. It's a legitimately good film that Andrew enjoyed in spite of thinking it doesn't fit what we do. I say screw it. We need some me time now and then. Ya'll will be back to listening to us hate life next week I'm sure. So open up a bottle of sake like we did and enjoy. Kampai!!

Popeye (1980)

Mistakes were made. When I had realized the late great Robert Altman was in fact the director of this weeks "film" ... and having just watched The Long Goodbye ... I thought to myself:

Self, how can you NOT put Popeye on the list. I could sit through it again ... I think. I mean its Robert Altman. Maybe I'll have a new found appreciation for what is arguable not a great movie. I was inarguable wrong.

There isn't much more to say. The film is notoriously bad and for good reasons. Altman couldn't save it. Williams couldn't save it. And Shelley Duvall playing the role she was clearly born to play is yet still not enough to make this musical (and holy mother of god do I use the term musical lightly) watchable.

Also Andrew shuts down what I thought was going to be an interesting political discussion between the two of us to talk about some random movies he watched on a plane or something ......
