Excruciatingly bad, Rachel Getting Married is more boring than being forced to watch a stranger’s wedding video: absolutely nothing happens for long stretches of time except for director Jonathan Demme’s dull attempts at multiculturalism and hipster superiority. Meanwhile, half-baked characters screech and whine. A horrible, horrible movie.
That was my original idea for the title of this blog, a sort of summation of nearly everything I'd ever wanted cinematically: regularly playing on the ABC Channel 7 4:30 movie--or on WOR-TV Channel 9's 4 O'Clock Movie--the greatest monster movie in the universe, and incredible combo of miniatures, men in suits and stop motion, with entire continents destroyed!
But then there was a coup d'etat, and Tzar Ivan I of Ivanlandia took charge.
