Audition (1999)

June 07, 2020 — Jt Spratley

First published on June 15, 2015

Audition is a Japanese film about an old lonely man creating an audition for a non-existant movie to find a new beau. When he makes a decision, everyone is telling him in many ways that he’s thinking with the wrong head. Everyone felt a bad vibe about her. She says things that send a bad vibe, even as a viewer. He ignores it all. Then there’s more red flags and a horrible dream. . .meh.

Twisted Seduction (2010)

June 07, 2020 — Jt Spratley

First published on June 29, 2015

Bored online, I came across “Twisted Seduction” while searching for an old romance film. In the beginning, a very intelligent man named David kidnaps a woman, Francesca, with the goal of forcing her to fall in love with him using psychological techniques and personal knowledge about her. It’s very slow for most of the movie, but his tactics don’t involve bodily harm. There’s a subtle Daddy & baby-doll/brat (just stick with S&M if you’re too vanilla 🙂 vibe throughout the movie. Instead, he uses coercion to reach his goals.

The Bedroom (1992)

June 06, 2020 — Jt Spratley

First published on August 3, 2015

“The Bedroom” is a lot of things. I’ll simply say it’s a Japanese film (with English subtitles) that follows a woman when she joins a fetish club where she takes a pill to sleep while others do as they wish. Imagine a weirder version of “Sleeping Beauty” (2011) starring Emily Browning.

Though it’s only a hour long, the confusing plot twists and constant vanilla sex scenes negate from the small story line presented.

Would You Rather Movie

June 05, 2020 — Jt Spratley

First published on October 5, 2015

“Would You Rather” is a SAW movie without elaborate traps and well-thought out games. It’s brute force and simple mini-games that make you wonder which choice you’d select and why every time someone is asked “would you rather…?” Even better, every time something cliché begins. . . no spoilers.

“Strong emotions can drive ridiculous actions.”

June 04, 2020 — Jt Spratley

First published on December 21, 2015

Black Swan revolves around ballet, Nina, played by Natalie Porter, and her losing herself to become the darker role she’d been accused of not being able to fulfill during the new Black Swan play. She fights her imagination from the time she’s selected for the role. Oh, and Mila Kunis from “Friends with Benefits” does kinky stuff in this film too.

She Fought Alone Movie (???)

June 04, 2020 — Jt Spratley

First published on January 4, 2016

I won’t say much more than needed. Rape, and false accusations, is always serious. Do you want a movie to get that point across to someone?

It's titled "She fought alone full length movie” on YouTube. You may have to log into YouTube to see it.

Death Tube (2010)

June 03, 2020 — Jt Spratley

First published on April 11, 2016

Okay. After watching this, I am seriously taking a break from Japanese SAW movies. It’s just under two hours long, but I wanted this to end at approximately 30 minutes in. By the 30 minute mark, I understood enough of what was going on, what was going to happen, why, and the acting was bad enough that I didn’t care much to see what happened. But I continued to watch . . . for you. Yep.

Okay, this is another jacked up Japanese movie, similar to Audition and Grotesque. Unlike those two movies, I was ready for this two hour long movie to end around the 60 minute mark.

What I Learned from the Red Pill Documentary

June 01, 2020 — Jt Spratley

First published on December 3, 2018

I really enjoyed the Red Pill documentary. It’s about a feminist interviewing men’s rights activists (MRA) expecting to enhance her understanding in her stance. By the end of the 2 hour documentary, she feels conflicted between what she wants to believe and what she’s heard during the many interviews. Below are my notes taken throughout the documentary.

In The Army Now(1994)

May 31, 2020 — Jt Spratley

First published on August 15, 2016

I asked Rallypoint about the movie before watching it. The opinions on the movie seemed very balanced between yes and no. I’m giving it a nope. While Pauly Shore did have a few really funny moments, I didn’t consider the movie consistent with humor. Many times, the things he does are simply annoying.

Anyways. . .

SPOILER ALERT ! !
