Happy Friday Everyone!
It’s another week of my FFR picks for your instant viewing pleasure.
I hope you’re in the mood for some werewolves, Kevin Arnold, gross tequila, toilet monsters and the best dinner party ever!
Head over to Netflix and add these to your instant queue.
Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning
For the third installment in the Ginger Snap series, the story goes back to 19th Century where the girls seek refuge in a forest among werewolves. When one of the girls is bitten, they get together with some Indian guy in search of a cure.
I’ve never been too much of a fan of time period movies so I do feel like this is the weaker of the three movies, but it’s the last movie of the series (as of now at least) and it’s a prequel so it’s worth checking out.
The Perfect Host
A bank robber on the run charms his way into a man’s home right before he’s about to put on a dinner party. The robber soon learns that something is off about this guy and the dinner party is far from normal.
It’s hard for me to say anything beyond this simple synopsis without giving anything away. The start of the film is strong and had so much potential to be full-on disturbing but the plot hits a turn which slows down the pace and kills the direction the film seemed to be going in. It’s not bad just…strange. But I have to give mad props to David Hyde Pierce for a great, convincing and creepy performance. Best. Dinner. Party. Ever.
Slacker state troopers are at risk at losing their jobs due to budget cuts. In attempt to keep their jobs and one-up their local police rivals the troopers try to solve a murder involving a drug ring.
I love the Broken Lizard gang and their dumb stoner sense of humor so this is an enjoyable one.
Poltergiest II: The Other Side
Yes, they are back…. in this second Poltergeist movie, the Freelings move into another home, yet spirits still follow them. Dun dun dunnnnn.
Ok so the first movie had the creepy tree and the creepy clown but this one has a crusty old guy who scares the shit out of me (to this day) and a scene that assures that I will never drink a bottle of tequila with a worm in it… vodka, maybe.
The Wonder Years
I don’t even know where to start with this show. Yeah I didn’t grow up in the 60’s, I didn’t have a crush on my neighbor nor did I have a best friend who was rumored to be Marilyn Manson but I related to Kevin Arnold.
Our adolescences has an important role in who we become when we are older. We learn more about our families, develop strong bonds with friends, experience crushes oh yeah then there’s the experience of boners. But it’s stuff we’ve all been through so that’s what makes this show amazing.
Have a great weekend everyone!
