The Cabin in the Woods is fun.

GREMLINS (1984) - I was really afraid this wouldn't hold up, but it was great. I
never liked the "my father died in a chimney" sequence, and it has impacted
my memory of the film. It seems like the one element where the humor tipped
into the wrong direction. It still doesn't work, but it doesn't ruin the movie.

The puppetry and practical effects are fantastic - they shoot Gizmo from the
perfect distance so we never see his lips not moving to Howie Mandel's voice
over.

I love that Don Steele is the radio DJ on this. Since he is featured in archive
form in Tarantino's ONCE UPON A TIME... IN HOLLYWOOD, you could watch
them back to back and have a Real Don Steele double feature!

STRANGERS ON A TRAIN (1951)

One of my favourite Hitchcock films. So much to enjoy here, especially Robert Walker as a deranged murderer. What a shame he passed so early.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER (2011) and MARVEL'S THE
AVENGERS (2012) - Have you all heard of these movies?
These little sleepers are quite good :-) My cable company
opened up Epix for free, so it was fun to watch these back
to back. There have been so many exceptional Marvel movies
since these that these don't usually go to the top of my
re-watch list. They were exceptional and I am glad I made
a double feature of it.

JANIS: LITTLE GIRL BLUE (2016) - Amy Berg's wonderful bio
of Janis Joplin, which aired as part of PBS's AMERICAN
MASTERS series. What a gigantic talent, and she came into
her own just as the end was near. There is an alternate
reality where she gets to grow old, but drugs and lonliness
are a tragic combination.
