Dogtooth (2009)
This movie just plain fucking sucks! How much? I would rather watch Deadgirl again than watch this piece of shit again.

Have you ever watched a movie, patiently waiting for something to happen, only to get a big "Fuck You!" at the end. That is a perfect description of Dogtooth.

Suicide Squad (2016)
Mixed feelings on Suicide Squad.

The Good: It did turn out to be better than I predicted. While I was curious about Suicide Squad, I predicted that it would suck. While it wasn't great, it was decent enough to keep me watching without wanting to get stoned.
However, I have no desire to ever watch it again.

The Bad: For starters, Margot Robbie absolutely sucked as Harley Quinn. She was annoyingly over the top - a la Xenia Onotopp. Of course, I suspect that Margot gets her roles based on her "talents" rather than talent, if you know what I mean.

Is that guy looking at her bum? How cheeky!

Then there is Jared Leto as the Joker - not convincing at all. This is what the Joker would be like if he were a character in Pink Flamingos.

Damn, I miss Heath Ledger.

Rubber (2010)
A film about a tire that can blow up people's heads? How can they fuck that up?

Actually, it's not as great as I expected. Yet, it could have been much worse, and the Fourth Wall breaks are brilliant.

Oh, and there's Roxane Mesquida!

If an acid trip were made into a movie, it would look like the Holy Mountain.

Alejandro Jodorowsky actually stated that he wanted to make films that were like doing psychedelic drugs.

Mission accomplished.

After I saw The Holy Mountain, I was curious about El Topo and Santa Sangre. El Topo has been described as an "acid Western". Those two words perfectly describe this film, although it is not as trippy as the Holy Mountain. The thing with Alejandro Jodorowsky's films is that we expect to be shocked and that makes them less shocking.

Santa Sangre (1989)
Oh, fuck it, I'll do Santa Sangre, too.
Santa Sangre (Holy Blood) is the least insane of the Jodorowsky films, but is still pretty batshit crazy. It is also has all of the tropes and symbols one would expect after watching El Topo and the Holy Mountain. Watch Santa Sangre and see if you can spot them all!

The Christ-like character is just one of them!

Mutant World (2014)
Maybe I would have rated it higher if I wasn't feeling shitty while watching it. Sleep deprivation and a brutal headache do make a difference.

The good: Holly Deveaux can definitely act and Ashanti did a good job, too.
The bad: For starters, it is very, very predictable. I was expecting a surprise or two, but none ever came.
Another problem is with Melissa King (Holly Deveaux's character). Hmmm, how to explain?
Let me put it this way. Melissa King is exactly what many crazed Star Wars fans accused Rey of being - possibly the biggest Mary Sue in film history. (Actually, Rey is not a Mary Sue, but that's a different story.) I really do like Holly Deveaux, but I have to be fair.

Interesting factoid: "Rey" is Spanish for "King".
ChihuahuaDaddy's rating:
It's certainly original, I'll give it that.

While not a particularly great movie, it is a decent little throwback to such cheesy 1980's comedies as Hamburger: The Motion Picture and Night Patrol. Not bad for a cheap B-movie that few would even know about.

At least Poultrygeist is better than such absolute fucking garbage as Dogtooth.
