Eh, I only want a 4K version of this for Emily Blunt. I've masturbated to the 4K versions of Sicario, Huntsman, and Girl On The Train way too many times. I need more Blunt on the format.
That review came from the "Too Much Information" desk.

It’s a weird coincidence, though, because I want more Julie Andrews on UHD for the same reason.

31 Days of Scary Movie is Complete! It’s actually more like 33 because I started on September 29th lol I also watched it more than once a couple days too. This brings me to 97 total viewings this year. We almost made it ma!
This Letterboxd reviewer watched Scary Movie every day for 30+ days in a row, and is aiming for 100 viewings this year. I remembered liking it somewhat on original release, but having watched it last night for the first time since then, I think I'll be tapping out at twice in a lifetime.

Having said that, I noticed that Netflix has added all 5 movies (I had no idea there was more than three) and I'm somewhat curious. Do the later ones have any redeeming qualities? I mean, if the first one was utterly juvenile rubbish, it doesn't bode well for the output after that, does it?

If you like non ending (No seriously) poop jokes then yes. Also there's some homophobic stuff too. It's a time capsule for sure but the Brokeback stuff was tasteless even then.

5 was really really bad. It's aiming too much for so bad it's good, that's somewhere in the middle between that and just completely awful

Never thought I'd be okay with saying this but here goes: youth is wasted on the young.

I can't think of ANY movie I could watch once-a-day for a month straight, even an absolutely brilliant one. That would just "kill" said movie, and I'd never want to watch it again.

I typically watch every feature that I prep for Blu-ray about five or six times before I’m done, including a very very slow screening where I’m checking and tweaking the hard-of-hearing subtitles line by line.

I don't like many of the Scary Movie series for the scatological, gay panic stuff, though there are a few moments that hit the (broad) mark, and I think once the Wayans stopped making the films and David Zucker and Jim Abrahams took over the directing and writing from part 3 that the series got a bit more tolerable (particularly since they inevitably bring in Leslie Nielsen for some of his last roles to play the deluded President), though never approaching the heights of Airplane!, or even Top Secret. In those later films I did like the strangely weird running together of films and blurring of actors that results in some weird moments such as the Signs parody with Charlie Sheen in the Mel Gibson role that forms the backbone plot of Part 3 segueing into Sheen's character being killed off at the beginning of Part 4 in the manner of Bill Pullman in The Grudge remake (albeit through the inevitable Viagra causing massive complications 'joke', though it was fun in the Naked Gun manner of somebody struggling with an unwieldy object around a room causing ever more chaos as they go!), with Pullman himself turning up later in the same film as a patriarch of a community based on The Village!

There was also that fun opening of Part V (I think) with the Ring parody. And the Exorcist opening of Part 2 with James Woods as the priest and Veronica Cartwright at the mother is inspired casting, but that just ends up with a lot of inevitable toilet humour! Though the priest rolling down an endless set of stairs was quite funny!

But yes even in those later films every time I laughed at one joke I cringed at the crassness of another, and just wanted to watch something like The Naked Gun again, where the naughtiness works perfectly!

I used to alternate Les tontons flingueurs and Les barbouzes during my studies for my Engineer school exams, but it "only" lasted for 2 weeks, so roughly 7 viewings each.

I watched, IIRC, the first 4 Scary Movie when they were released, and bought and re-watched the 3rd one on DVD (again at release time) and I can't even think I'd like one day to watch any again. I just recall them as being overly dumb and unfunny and crass in an insufferable way. I'm quite certain some of the jokes are still OK, but I can't imagine myself having to watch those entirely just for 3 funny minutes.

Not a film review, but I have been doing some research on Cantonese opera after learning there are a couple of HK Blu-rays available, one of which is a new release. Information on these operas in English seems to be extremely scarce online, where few sites agree on even the English-translated titles of some works. Therefore, Wikipedia is a necessary resource at least for links, but in the article on 74-year old Cantonese opera star Loong Kim Sang, I was puzzled to see this film reference, even moreso because of the seriousness that comes through in the broken English throughout the article:
