TWO BROTHERS HAVE MORE THAN JUST A FEW WRINKLES TO IRON OUT IN 2016’s “MOUNTAIN MEN” – CANADIAN OUTDOOR DRAMEDY

B-Movie Gazette Skinny

Mountain Men is a movie that straddles the line (more than several times in fact) between comedy and drama or more specifically, outdoor survival adventure. Deciding if it wants to be one or the other seems to have been a major complaint with movie fans but I found the balance of the two spot-on. Somehow they make me care for these characters and even though the brother reconciliation thing has been put out in a million flavors past, I enjoyed the way they tied the whole lesson-learned aspect together, nice and subtle. All in all I was pleasantly surprised with this one, my first time seeing Tyler Labine, a charismatic actor with hopefully many more great performances to come. both leads are great. If you enjoy Canadian films as much as I generally do, you’ll dig this!

OPENING DAY SPECIAL FEATURE! – TOMMY’S TOP 5 JERRY LEWIS COMEDY MOVIES BY TRAILERS

Not necessarily in any order but Who’s Minding The Store is my #1


Jerry employed at a high-scale mental institution…oh what larks!

Jerry plays 7 different roles in this 1965 charmer, the plane sequence with him as a pilot is best.

The Patsy, one of his very best.

Who could resist the Great Dane “Mister Bascom” who gets a whole lotta screen time in this road trip to Hollywood. A great film, ole LA folk will love the Hollywood Bowl and Chinese Theater scenes at end.

ARE YOU WEARING A "MASK"? – REVISITING AN ’85 GEM W/ ERIC STOLTZ AS ROCKY DENNIS – THE HORROR!

Sam Elliot at his Sam Elliot best. The amazing woman known as Cher hits the ball clear over the fences in this beacon of 80’s cinema. All the right components come together in a film with a priceless message- what we are on the outside is not always how we are on the inside. One that since the dawn of mankind still hasn’t been learned…..The Horror!! Pinewoods Rating System – Five Pinewoods, a true classic. 

Mask Movie Review & Film Summary (1985) | Roger Ebert

When we see him for the first time, it’s a glimpse through his bedroom window, half-reflected in a mirror. A second later, we see him more clearly, this teenage boy with the strange face. We are shocked for a second, until he starts to talk, and then, without effort, we accept him as a normal kid who has had an abnormal thing happen to him.

BARBARA BACH IS A REPORTER TRAPPED INSIDE A HOUSE WITH "THE UNSEEN"!! – 1980 SHEER HORROR!

Oh my, the You Tube robots have done it again- washing up on my shore as a “recommendation” (just what exactly are they trying to say?) I knew about 5 minutes into this one it was a B-flick of unique caliber, perfect for THOH. You can read some real reviews below, it’s a mix of good and bad, points for the story, casting and Sydney Lassick, thumbs down for a lot of the production, a bit of a tangled mess at times. Using my Pinewoods Rating System, The Unseen gets One & 1/2 Pinewood….The Horror!!

The Unseen (1980)

“The Unseen” is one of those movies I missed on its first few tours of duty; I wasn’t interested in it enough to beg my parents to take me to see it at the drive-in, and it didn’t run long enough on HBO for me to get the chance to stay up past my bedtime and watch it.

The Unseen (1980)

The Unseen is a 1980 American horror film directed by Danny Steinmann [as Peter Foleg] from an [uncredited] screenplay by Michael L. Grace. Director Steinmann, who later directed gory movies Savage Streets and Friday the 13th: A New Beginning, apparently fell out with the producers during post-production, hence the use of a pseudonym.
