Two more 50s/60s sci-fi movies to recommend to Cory:

It! The Terror from Beyond Space - A fairly taut thriller and it's easy to see that this is the movie that Dan O'Bannon was updating when he wrote his Alien script.

Planet of the Vampires - Another movie said to be an influence on Alien, that has some great sets and atmosphere.

We need a sequel to Godzilla-Mothra-King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack, where Godzilla, formed of the spirits of the slain of WW2 fights a monster formed of the spirits who in inhabit Aokigahara. That would be nifty.

No, The Angry Birds movie isn't good. The best moment of the film is when violence against children is displayed on screen, which can be seen in the trailer, and it's at the very beginning. The rest of it, not my tempo. It is worth noting that, out of the blue, with no buildup, during the final act, there's a bird that shoots pink fireworks out of her ass which blows buildings and pigs up. So, yeah.

AVGN haters can go fuck themselves, especially dumbass feminists who think the new Ghostbusters film will be good.

Now, regarding Sorceress...

Oh come on Forest, those twins weren't that bad. But yeah, Sorceress is a misleading title, unlike so many other sword and sorcery films. But, come on, despite all the cons, you have to admit this movie was entertaining as hell and hilarious. I mean, the jokes practically write themselves with that movie. Case in point with this dialogue exchange between the skinny dipping sisters who spot goatboy for the first time:
"What's that between his legs?"
"I don't know."
"A weapon then?"

Oh, you could say it's a weapon.

"But how would he use such a weapon?"
By sliding into various kinds of slots.

Not to mention that soon after encountering goatboay, when their village is getting raided, the soldiers question a goat herder.

"I'm a simple goat herder!"
"Really? You never heard of any goatboy around here?"

Ok, so I made that last line up, but doesn't that sound like it would be in the movie? The jokes write themselves with this flick, I don't see how anyone with a sense of humor and doesn't mind 80s sexism couldn't not enjoy this film.

There are 2 things worth noting:
1.) When the twin is feeling her sister's pleasure from having sex, the dwarf walks towards her concerned and says the perfect line, "Child, what is it, a snake?" Oh, you could say that, heehee.
2.) I was thinking about this the entire time goatboy was on the screen:

I love this movie, so I'm a little disheartened, seeing that you only give it 1 star, just half a star away from being a movie that ranks alongside God's Not Dead. It deserves better than that. That's all.

PS: I'm only asking out of curiosity and because you guys tend to have a fetish for masochism with the type of films you're willing to sit through, do you plan on watching God's Not Dead 2 (yes, they seriously made a fucking sequel)? I ask partly because I want Forest to watch it, and do a letterboxd review on it, because his review for the first one was pure fucking gold.

At least the theme playing during the Sorceress trailer sounded like James Horner's theme for "Battle Beyond the Stars" (1980). Horner would recycle some of that music for Star Trek, Krull, and Aliens.
