Nora's Hair Salon II (2008)
Easily one of the worst movies I've ever seen
I wish I was exaggerating, but I'm not. Here I am trying to support movies made by black folks, and they come out with this crap! Whatever charm there was in the first film was completely absent in the second one. Pointless scene upon pointless scene, bad acting, very little plot. When scenes with Bobby Brown are a highlight of a film, there's a problem. Poor Mekhi Phifer shows up near the end of the movie and seems to try to make up for the poor acting efforts of the other actors all by himself, but no dice. Who knew that the absence of Jennifer Lewis would make such a difference? Trust me, it did. I will admit that it was nice to see Stacy Dash working again, but I sure wish she could find better vehicles than this.
When this movie ended I was actually angry about the time I wasted watching it. Please don't waste your time or money on this!
The Beast of Hollow Mountain (1956)
Sucked in by the TiVo description!
I was perusing my Tivo recommendations and this description jumped out at me:
"A Mexican cattleman's beef with a rancher is settled by a tyrannosaur from the local swamp."
How could I pass up a gem like this? The "special effects" are MST3K worthy, particularly a scene where the drunk father is dragged by a horse, rather, where a dummy that's supposed to be the drunk father is dragged by a horse. Awesome! When they showed a close-up of the "feet" of the dinosaur I howled! I know it was the fifties, but still! The acting was better than I was expecting, though I could have done without the kid, just annoying.
Certainly no classic, but I was entertained from start to finish.
