"Awards to be presented by C***m W*****l."

Ned Raggett (Ned), Wednesday, 1 February 2006 21:45 (twelve years ago) Permalink

is the award named after the movie or the character who was a fan of the movie in the 1986 Mark Harmon/Kirstie Alley epic "Summer School"?

Is 'limited release' a nice spin on 'straight to video'?

andy --, Thursday, 2 February 2006 00:27 (twelve years ago) Permalink

usually it means "played in a festival and a couple of theaters in major cities for a few days" or "straight to video".

BEST MAKEUP/CREATURE FX
Dean Jones, Starr Jones, Toolbox Murders

Wouldn't it be cool if these two people were actually the ones who probably come to mind when you see these names?

Exoricism of Emily Rose was one of the worst, most tedious, most stupidly Xtian films I've ever seen. 2.8 minutes of possessed money shots, 135 minutes of the worst courtroom drama ever.

Wolf Creek was so awful. It wasn't even disturbingly violent or gory - so normal people couldn't enjoy it, and neither could Trench Coat rejects like Calum.

haha, I didn't pay attention, this wasn't even a Calum topic.

Hmm, starring in one cult horror snooze seems to lock you in forever these days.

Forsythe better win SOMETHING for The Devil's Rejects (tho he had more of a role it it than Al Haig did).
