What the heck you gonna shoot a silver .44 bullet at anyway?
In the small town of Tarker's mill a death at first suspected of being an accident, turns out not to be. More people gets killed, brutally torn to pieces. A young boy in a wheelchair, Marty, thinks it's a werewolf, and one day he gets that confirmed. Now it's just up to finding out who the werewolf really is..
A really good but not at all typical werewolf movie. I wouldn't exactly call this a horror film, even though in some ways it.. kinda is. But the feel to it is really more like a charming adventure/mystery movie, with wellplaced occasions of comic relief. I really recommend you to see this movie if you haven't, and hopefully you'll be as into it as I am!
I think the trailer to this movie is really quite misleading (making it seem like your average werewolf horror), but I'll post it anyway:
Jack Deth, a noir style cop living in the 23rd century gets recalled from retirement by the ruling counsil. It seems like the rebel leader, Whistler, that Jack thought he killed isn't actually dead. He's back in 1985, killing off the councils ancestors with help from his psychically controlled minions, called trancers. Jack is sent back in time (into the body of his ancestor) to find and stop Whistler before he erases the future, problem is that Whistlers ancestor (iow the body he inhabits) is a police detective..
If Blade runner and Terminator had a baby with no money who really loved cheese it would be named Trancers! Now don't take that the wrong way though, cause this movie is actually surprisingly entertaining and very watchable, filled with cheesy goodness, one-liners and trashy settings. If that's the kind of thing that you think you might be into, give it a watch!
Stuck on repeat
Aussie guy Shazam from Perth has made a remix so good it hurts, I've had it stuck on repeat constantly for the last couple of days. This song totally breaks my heart, but in a good way. Have a listen:

Hello tall, dark and handsome
Once bitten, (1985)
California in the mid 80's, a virgin seems hard to come by which is a bit of a problem for the Countess, a vampire who needs to drink the blood of a virgin three times before halloween to keep her beauty. Luckily for her she ends up at the same bar as Mark (Jim Carrey), a guy who desperatly wants to get laid because his girlfriend wont put out.
This movie certainly wouldn't win an award for being some kind of comical masterpiece or for being wellwritten, or for anything else for that matter. It feels like a lot is being left out and more than once you will go 'wait wat', but, if you take it for what it is, a bit random and lighthearted (and of course very 80's ♥), it will still be quite fun and enjoyable and it's definetly worth a watch! But maybe on a lazy sunday rather than friday movienight.
- What was that scene in the shower all about?
- Hey, ever say "thanks" for trying to help out a friend?
- Oh you're a big help, thanks a lot. Did it ever occur to you guys that maybe you could've asked me?

Just one of the guys, (1985)
About Terry, who is an aspiring journalist. She submits an article into a competition held by the school where the winner gets a summerjob at a real newspaper. It gets rejected. Thinking she's a real hot shot she goes to see her teacher about this and refuses to take his explanation to why it was rejected, no, it must have something to do with her gender since her article about The school cafeteria's food selection was fantastic. So, she dresses up as a boy to resubmit the article at a neighbouring high school. Since the new school doesn't seem to require any registration information she easily blends in as Terrance. But, surprise surprise, Terrance article gets rejected as well!
Dressed to impress (in her brothers clothes) at the new school a new article shall be made.
Joyce Hyser does an excellent job as Terry, she actually looks quite good as a guy. Although her body seems to be getting some weird sort of tick-action going on when she's Terrance that, at least I, havn't seen in any guys (nor girls for that matter). Unless they're very special. Ehr, anyways, this is a funny and quite charming movie with heaps of sweet 80's fashion and music, quirky characters (alien-geek duo, reptile boy etc.). Oh and her brother Buddy is a disturbing pervert. But nevermind him, watch it!
- You were in the boys' locker room?
- Can I be your younger brother?

Alex, what a surprise!
First of all, happy new year everyone!
Now on to todays tip:
Alex Gardner (Dennis Quaid) has an extraordinary gift, telepathic abilities, which he mainly uses to gamble on horses, score with the ladies etc. Dr. Paul Novotny tracks him down to convince him into joining a study on psychic dream research. 'Dreamlinking', the psychic projection of one persons consciousness into a sleeping persons dreams, to try and resolve whatever anxiety people might have causing them nightmares. Only problem is that occasionally people die from it..
Dreamscape has a nice blend of sci-fi, action and horror. Completed with a dash of humor as well of course. Sadly it feels a bit overlooked and underrated, it really is a great and well-acted movie. Watch it!
