Love me some Darkman, classic Raimi.
Wild at Heart is Lynch in rare form, but definitely a film I have to be in the mood for.
Pump up the Jam is another fave. One of the more poignant teen flicks of the time.
Was never a Steve Martin fan, but I found him extra annoying in My Blue Heaven.
Saw Wild at Heard ONCE in the theater. Never since. Been meaning to look at it again, I barely remember it.
I agreed with Siskel and Ebert. I liked “Darkman” a lot. Liam Neeson was terrific as Peyton Westlake, and Larry Drake was was so well-cast as Durant. I liked “Dick Tracy” too, the best detective movie ever. Thumbs up for me.
Darkman 4/4 👍👍
Only thing about My Blue Heaven is my cousin did the score for that crap film. People ignored it in theaters and that was a good thing. It was just a sitcom film.
I am a fan of your cousin Ira’s music, such as for the Naked Gun series. Thanks for sharing your story!
Thanks a lot. And he also did Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, which is running a lot right now for Thanskgiving.
It’s too bad the next week’s episode is not available.
Special show. They did a lot of them in the summertime back then. Probably to fill episodes since there weren’t as many movies to review. In the later years, they didn’t have to do that.
I was Darkman for Halloween that year. No one got it. I kept getting “Are you suppose to be the mummy?” I love that movie, highly underrated.
I could see the confusion. Darkman did do well though, from what I recall.
Roger Ebert’s one-man war against David Lynch continues. I didn’t realize how much he disliked Lynch’s style; he’s always juxtaposed violence with humor. Think of Bob from Twin Peaks: terrifying or hilarious? Both, in my opinion, showing that there’s a very thin line between the two. Ebert sure didn’t care for his work, though. Wow.
