[ACT] Your last movie?
Fire and Ice (1983) Randy Norton (voice), Cynthia Leake (voice), Steve Sandor (voice)

Ralph Bakshi, Frank Frazetta, Roy Thomas, and Gerry Conway. The only names you really need to know about this movie.

A Burt Reynolds drive-in double feature:

White Lightning (1973) with Jennifer Billingsley, Ned "Squeeeeeel" Beatty, and Bo Hopkins
and the sequel
Gator (1976) with Lauren Hutton, Jack Weston, and Jerry "Snowman" Reed

Despite some flaws, White Lightning works. Despite its obvious bigger budget, Gator does not.

Fun fact: Steven Spielberg was the original director for White Lightning, which was to be his first feature film (Duel was made for TV), but he quit a few months into pre-production.

Well pooh. Apparently I previewed the post but didn't post it. Anyway.

Guess the theme.

Black Sabbath (Original title: I Tre Volti Della Paura) (1963) Boris Karloff et al
Three vignettes of Italian Horror. Great movie. Terrible dubbing into Italian.

They Might be Giants (1971) George C. Scott, Joanne Woodward, Jack Gilford
Billed as a Mystery/Comedy, the mystery remains unresolved and the "comedy" is better described as satire. I'd like to watch the original cut before the studio chopped fifteen minutes out. Still, it's not as bad as I make it sound.

Them! (1954) James Whitmore, Joan Weldon, James "The Thing  from Another Planet" Arness, Edmund "Santa Claus" Gwenn
A really good '50s horror flick.
Fun fact: James Arness was originally considered for the role of Davy Crockett, but after Disney saw Fess Parker's performance in this movie, he offered the role to Fess instead.
Funner fact: Darwood/Derwood/Dum-Dum Stevens ("Bewitched" reference) had an uncredited role.
Funnest fact: As did Leonard Nimoy.

In queue: The Knack... and How to Get It (1965), The Misfits (1961)
Not in queue: All the Fine Young Cannibals (1960). Can't find it anywhere.

Spent a week house/pet-sitting at my aunt's again. Only watched one movie.

John Wick: Chapter 4 (2023) Keanu Reeves, Donnie "Ip Man" Yen, Ian McShane, Bill Skarsgård

While I still stand by my assertion the John Wick is a better franchise than Fast and Furious and creates a more coherent world based on the rules established the first movie, this installment seems to make a good-faith effort to prove me a liar. It failed, but it tried. The movie's main flaw is too many fight scenes lasting too long creating in the audience the feeling that you're watching a video game. At ten minutes short of a three hour runtime, I feel that an hour could be cut out with no loss of story. Still, it was a fitting end to the story.
