Double Feature Double Dates
or Making The Most of a Crappy Economy

Let's face it: the economy sucks. Sucks to the point that suddenly, spending $12 for a ticket, $8 for parking, $15 for snacks, and $wayTooMuch for dinner has ceased to be an impulse night out has evolved into a major financial consideration. It's in times like these that video rentals and libraries become all the more important, and really, what better way is there to take our minds off an awful reality than with a couple of awful movies? To that end, I present my list of bad movie double features - one a week should keep you going well into blockbuster season, by which point hopefully you'll have saved enough for a night out.

Paul Verhoeven Misogyny Night (Total Recall and Showgirls)
Ah, the 90s - when nihilism was in and feminism was a dirty word. Sharon Stone basically treated her role in Total Recall as a warm-up for the more-coherant Basic Instinct, and Showgirls is...well, Showgirls. (Note: get the VIP edition if possible - the pop-up trivia track alone is worth the price of admission.)

There is no Doubt about it - this is an incredible, must see film
If you only watch one Oscar-nominated film this year, make sure it is Doubt. And yes, it was snubbed for the Best Picture.

Honestly, I liked it A LOT more than Frost/Nixon. I even liked it more than Slumdog Millionaire, which was a darling little film that I will be delighted to see win come Oscar night. Still, Doubt should've been up there, in the top five this year. And don't get me started about how it should've replaced the terrible The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

For a more extensive review, see #8 on my 100 movies in 2009 list.

Of Golden Globes and Undead Trollops


Poor Marissa Tomei. Despite giving a bold and provocative performance in The Wrestler, she got screwed out of a Golden Globe because she forgot one of Hollywood's cardinal rules: in much the way that the Academy doesn't reward those who go full retard, mainstream actressess aren't supposed to actually strip. Just ask Elizabeth Berkeley, who committed career suicide with Showgirls; or Jessica Alba, who kept her bra on in Sin City and lived to tell about it; or Demi Moore, who went from playing an empowered, self-actualized ecdysiast in Striptease to a brutalized sexual assault victim in GI Jane. There is a corollary to this rule, however, which is that "exotic dancer" is one of the few roles an adult actress is allowed to portray in the main(ish)stream cinema world. Thus we get Jenna Jameson in Zombie Strippers, the most ambitious exploitation flick you never saw.
