    ^ SHALLOW GRAVE (1987) is such an underrated movie. Easily my most anticipated blu-ray release of the year.

    I don't think this one ever got a lot of attention, so I'm excited for more people to discover it.

    I just watched Pledge Night. I remember liking it when I first saw it as a teen. As an adult I'm not sure why that was. This was awful and pretty uneventful. The laughing guy drove me nuts and the Freddy rip-off was lame.
    It's basically a generic frat movie till over half way through.

    Yeah, that tends to happen.

    Don't even get me started on what happened when I caught a rerun of the 80s Buck Rogers on MeTV

    Yeah, as a kid? Star Wars lite. As an adult? Spandex, cardboard walls, Christmas lights and pipe-cleaner and glitter production design.

    For a while I used to park the TV on that channel starting at 8PM. Often staying on past 1AM, even if I wasn't always paying attention.

    But it didn't take long before the 11PM hit put an itch on my remote trigger finger. I can't think of any show that got me questioning my childhood tastes more than Buck Rogers, to the point I look at the disk set listings on Amazon and remember my initial nostalgia impulse to buy it when it first came out. And how I now consider that to be a major bullet dodge.

    Glen Larson was never a creator of high brow entertainment, but Buck Rogers was particularly insipid and banal. And it only got progressively worse over its mercifully short run.

    Okay, maybe not Galactica 1980 bad. The horror, the horror.

    I'm reminded of a Mike Nelson quote when they decided to riff This Island Earth for the Mystery Science Theater 3000 movie. He was heavily criticized for taking a sci-fi "classic" rather than the low-budget dreck they normally riffed on the show. Nelson asked those critics, "Have you watched it recently??"

    Stuff we dug as kids doesn't always hold up.

    There’s a lot of movies and tv-shows, that I loved as a kid/teen, that I wish I never revisited today.

    Would have been better to have kept those rosetinted memories...

    I don't have a problem with Buck Rogers. It's in line with all of the other prime time sci-fi/action crap of that period.

    That sounds..fantastic to me actually.

    I watched 'The Cellar' tonight, God that was a slog! There ain't much going on, the editing is poor with scenes ending abruptly there's very little violence and a lot of mumbo jumbo. The creature is good I'll give it that but used way to sparingly. All in all it was disappointing.

    I liked the directors cut overall producers cut I thought was pretty Dreadful. All American Murder is pretty good

    It was the producers cut I saw, what's the difference? Is it substantial enough?

    Opening and ending narration is gone editing a lot tighter different opening and music throughout.

    Totally agree. I didn't enjoy it.

    I can't imagine that's enough to make a difference on the overall film. I would be curious to compare.

    I quite liked The Caller, but I was informed prior to viewing that it's executed and plays out a bit like a two-person stage play so that helped my viewing expectations with it.

    Thank you for clarifying. However I don't think that's gonna br enough for me to change my opinion to any great extent.
