Flicks I've watched (Part 13)

See here for part 12.

Ope! Forgot a couple!
Knew I would.

So, this is also "Worst Of The Worst", part 3.
(1, 1.5, 2)

Straw Dogs (1971)

Overrated fucking garbage.

(Had to dig around in my Facebook archives to remember when this was)
Watched this back in June 11th, which would have been between the reviews for "Message From Space", and the ones for "Starcrash", and "Battle Beyond The Stars", and it was kind of lumped into that viewing batch.

It didn't go with those, so I was going to give it its own separate thing, but I really didn't want to go in depth with it, and then I just sort of forgot about it.
But, now that I'm back on course with stuff that was controversial and shocking to people, this popped back into my memory.

Okay, so the controversy with this, is there's a rape, and the victim has a complex gamut of emotions, including forcing herself to enjoy it, and...*shrug* all right.
What else you got?
Yes, rape can be complicated.
Adults need to have this explained?
I guess they did in '71.
Intellectuals should have known better.
Nope, they were prudes too.
Fuck them for being weaklings.

But, really, this is pretentious, and boring as shit, and Hoffman's character is a pussy, and never really stops being a pussy.
There's no one likable in this.
No one.
Pussies and assholes all.
And it has the pacing of watching paint dry.

Biggest part of why I forgot to review this was my bitter un-enthusiasm.
I want those fucking 2 hours back.

I'm offended when people are such pussies they're offended by boring crap like this.
I thought the 70's were hip, not another extension of fucking Victorian times.
America never fully lets go of that Victorian streak.

Ilsa: She Wolf Of The SS (1975)

Haven't watched it, not going to.
Have seen an in-depth video review with clips, and it looks like pretentious boring schlock in the same foodgroup as "Salo".

The "Saw", of its day.
Bite my ass.

There, NOW I think that's everything.
The famous ones, anyway.
No doubt there's hundreds of underground ones.

Yeah, "Straw Dogs", falls under "that's it?!??!", and "miserable movies", too.

Aw, damn, stupid image gallery had like 4 redundant copies of my stupid avatar, and getting rid of them wiped the avatars out of my fuggin' posts.

Nope, not letting me retroactively fix it.

Stupid Google.
Guess I gotta let that folder alone.

*Long sigh*

Crap, this happened before, and I used to know this, and I did it again.
So...this is going to just keep happening.
