Well, a little her fault but mostly not.

I still don’t remember how this movie ends. I assume with an alien abduction?

Did she paint her nipples or is that my TV?

I feel like the nail painting was preceding her revenge tour of murder.
I swear I had never seen that before.

I'm sure beating the shit out of a rich famous celebrity but not killing him won't have any repercussions.

The soft music to play it as serious is terrific.

Though honestly Gershon's character is probably one of the few semi-realistic portrayals of a bi character in that era.

I love the "Los Angeles 280" sign there. I fuckin' pray they were thinking about trying to setup a sequel.

Yeah, that's the worst big-budget movie I've ever seen. I'm not sure it's really a contest. Ishtar was Citizen Kane compared to that.

So the rape of her friend was the catalyst for her to leave. Or her past catching up with her. What even is narrative?

I might expand on that to say it's the worst movie I've ever seen including 90's direct-to-cable stuff, and I've seen a ton. That movie Jerry Lewis made where he's a clown at a Nazi concentration camp that was never released is probably worse than this, but only like 2%.

Congratulations, guys. You genuinely "exceeded" my expectations here.

I hate that you can only experience these movies once. I can't wait for DSafe and some of you other guys to see The Room. That's the only thing in the same ballpark that I've seen before.

There is no way they weren't giving themselves the option.

Not sure if you've seen The Room yet or not, but I can vouch the feeling is the same (though the movie is vastly different).

This would have been fun to watch along with everyone. All of your posts are excellent.

Also, speaking of Berkley...

No Showgirls questions from reading through a little bit.

“You Don’t Nomi” available for rent for only 99 cents on Amazon this weekend and it’s well worth it.

YES! YES! YES!

Like the best of the worst, describing "The Jazz Singer" can not do it justice.

The bumping of this thread had me thinking about when to get the band back together, at least brian and Giff for "Savages", as previously requested. I'm thinking late January or February would work, pending how the return of basketball and hockey go (I expect poorly, as there won't be bubbles for the pro sports and something like 35 college basketball programs are on pause due to the virus). Happy to move it off of Thursday nights or play around with the start time, as needed.
