My Top 4 Criterion Collections Wants!

I got an email this morning saying that there might be a Criterion Collection Flash Sale this afternoon. So I thought I would put up a quick guide if you are undecided on what to buy during the sale or if you are just undecided on what to buy in the Criterion Collection world.

Here in no order….

McCabe & Mrs. Miller directed by Robert Altman and starring Julie Christie and Warren Beatty (1971 Spine Number: 827) – I remember being on a Robert Altman watching binge and although I found the plot somewhat dragging. I was more enticed by the rich scenery and costumes of the film.

Link to buy is below:

Paris is Burning directed by Jennie Livingston (1990 Spine Number 1018) – this is one of my favorite documentaries and I am so glad it got the Criterion Collection treatment. I first watched this documentary in college about 12 years ago when. I didn’t realized until the school I graduated that the college library has stacks of amazing hidden movies and this was one of my finds.

Paris, Texas directed by Wim Wenders. Starring Harry Dean Staton, Nastassja Kinski and Dean Stockwell. If there was ever a movie to fall in love with. This would be high on my list! The first time I watched this movie I was a little hesitant to watch it right away because of the running time. Running at two hours and 25 minutes I was like thinking oh is this movie going to drag? But once I started watching it I was totally absorbed with EVERYTHING it had to offer. It even made me sob for a good five minutes after I stopped watching it.

Link to buy is below:

All about my Mother directed by Pedro Almodóvar and starring Cecilia Roth (1999 Spine Number: 1012) – Pedro Almodóvar is one of my favorite directors. For me his movies remind me of the Spanish soap operas my aunts would watch but on the big screen. There are so many layers in Almodóvar dialogue that makes you want to rewatch his movies to make sure you absorb everything.

Let me know in the comments below what you ended up buying from the 24 hour sale!!!

Until next time!!!

Have a Horrific Valentine’s Day!

When you think of Valentine’s Day  you think of the over kill of love, and hearts.  Every available cartoon character with it’s own show surrounded by hearts : fc95ef24b71dbdc0311bf786e036730eclassic-cartoon-valentines-day-cards-14

However they are the older vintage Valentine’s Day cards that have it’s share of the weird, creepy and sometimes horrifying premise to say “I love you. I am not sure if Valentine’s Day cards back in the early 20th century were meant to share you into loving the person who gave you the card. Maybe people were edgier in their feelings  and wants in those days. In any case I decided to share some memorable and scary Valentine’s Day cards. Sometime when I see these vintage Valentine’s Day cards I think that this holiday is a mini Halloween. Which of course I am all for it!!!



So I noticed there were a lot of cards that mixed witches, witchcraft and love. I enjoy the mixture of witchcraft and love in one card.


Get a card that shows off your talents of eating fire.


I think this Valentine’s Day card is suppose to encourage you to be a 100% true to your Valentine’s.


This is one of my favorite cards. It has a clown who is either about to punk you out or is aggressive in telling you in the dead of night in the corner of your room while sleeping that you are the only one for them.

If the part heart head and other half human Valentine’s Day card is not weird enough for you. Then let the big creepy eyes follow you while you read your Valentine’s Day Card.


Nothing says I love you like sneaking behind your Valentines and covering their mouth?!?!



There was a lot of food related Valentine’s Day cards. Although a lot them were kind of weird like the pig about to turn himself into bacon in return for your love.


No words….



There was also a lot of cards that promoted self harm or putting yourself in harm’s waya in order to receive love.


When I think of Valentine’s day the first animal pops in my head are those lovable sharks!


Valentine’s Day cards and greetings have advance a lot to current times but I still get  kick going back and seeing these old cards.


Until Next Time!!!

Valentine’s Day: The Movie’s holiday

Some people spend this holiday going out to dinner or buying gifts for their love ones. I on the other hand stay in and watch movies. So here are five movies that scream I love you in my own weird and unique way:


Videodrome (1983)- Directed by David Cronenberg and starring James Wood and Debbie Harry. James Woods is a president of a TV station that shows a large amount of X-rated shows  on his channel. He doesn’t see what the big deal is and why people are upset by his choices in his programming until his real life and TV station become one entity.

The Prowler (1981) directed by Joseph Zito and starring Vicky Dawson, and Christopher Goutman. This movie has a bit of everything you want in a  horror movie to watch on Valentine’s Day : A unknown crazy killer bent on revenge. A  Dear John Letter, high school dance and numerous flashbacks!

The Prowler



Natural Born Killers (1994)- Directed by Oliver Stone and starring Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis. I remember the first time I saw this movie was when I was 11 years old and on vacation in Guatemala visiting my family. It was the only movie that they will play everything Friday at 2pm and 8pm. This movie is ingrain in my head as a love run a muck. What better reason to watch this movie other than on Valetine’s Day?

The Love Witch


Teorema (1968) directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini and starring Terence Stamp and Silvana Mangano. Terence Stamp stars as an angel or a god ( I am still trying to figure out which it was). And stays with a rich family and his main objective is to seduce and destroy their family dynamic. Needless to say mission accomplished! The first time I watched this movie was in an Italian Cinema course. I have never heard of the director Pier Paolo Pasolini before but when I watched this film. I was entranced, confused and  enjoyed this movie a lot. Even though I was confused about the plot. The night of the class when we were supposed to discussed this movie the teacher asked us a question. Was Terence Stamp the angel or a devil in this movie. Never had a seen such a heated debate in a class before! Yelling, and interruptions were a constant in this discussion. Their was even a threat of a chair to be thrown. Needless to say Pasolini became one of my favorite directors after that night!

Until Next time!
