THE AMG DIRTY DOZEN: 03/17/10 – An Apocalypse, Some Horror And Swingers Of Different Ages

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, here is another installment of the AMG Dirty Dozen.  It offers another twelve reviews from Your Humble Reviewer circa 2002.  Looking back at these reviews, he regrets that he was so tough on Silver Bullet – easily the most underrated of Stephen King adaptations and a film he’s come to love – but the rest is alright for an amateur just beginning to learn the trade.  With this batch, you’ll find cheerleaders, a zombie cop, a cheeky reinterpretation of the Frankenstein mythos, a skin-crawling documentary about geriatric swingers and Your Humble Reviewer’s favorite Dirty Harry sequel.  If you have a few minutes to kill before the holiday-enforced drinking begins, please check ’em out…

  1. I can never remember the title to The Lifestyle. However, I’ll never forget the scene where a man, looking like an naked overweight schoolboard memeber, says “Hey that guy’s screwing my wife” or something to that effect. It’s so casual, like a flat joke, and probably the highlight of the film.
    It’s also worth noting that the one couple who seems to have some regrets for joining the Lifestyle appears to be a decade younger than the other swingers.
