Deep Puppy Thoughts (Part 164)

If you’re REALLY REALLY REALLY intellectual and are talking to someone else that is, and they say something that really annoys/insults you, you might consider the following response, before walking away.

It’s inappropriate for almost any occasion.

“Using a colloquialism to ingratiate yourself with the rabble? How very sad. How *really* very sad.”

How To Find What You’re Looking For – A Search Guide By Puppy

Hi there.

If you are reading this, you may be having some trouble finding what you’re looking for on this site. Or, you’re just curious.

So here’s a quick guide:

If you’re looking for something EXACT…like, say, a movie review for ‘The Shining’…go to the “search” bar, and type in “the shining” (without quotes of course). That should bring up what you want.

If you’re looking for something EXACT, and CANNOT find it using the above method…type in a word or two of what you’re looking for, as I may have it listed slightly differently than the full title you’re entering.

For example, if you’re looking for a review of the first ‘Masters of Horror’ episode, and are having trouble finding it, try typing in “mountain road”, or “masters”, etc…this should bring up what you’re looking for.

If you’re looking for a specific CATEGORY…like, say, movies…scroll down from the opening blog page, keeping an eye on the left-hand side of the screen. Eventually, you will pass entries grouped by date…keep scrolling down, and RIGHT BELOW the entries grouped by date you will find entries grouped by CATEGORY.

Then, simply click on the category you’re interested in, and all the posts in that category will appear. Scroll through/read them at your pleasure, and enjoy.

So, for example, if you’re curious about Grimmsy (and who isn’t?) but don’t want to read the rest of the cr@p I post, you would scroll down until you saw the category entitled “Grimmsy Grimmling”. Then simply click on that, and all Grimmsy Grimmling entries should appear.

If you’re looking to read all my movie reviews, click on “Movie/Long Subject Reviews”…etc, etc.

Masters Of Horror: Incident On And Off A Mountain Road (2005)

In 50 years or so – if not sooner – the intro to these short films will be about as scary as your average cheezy 60’s horror movie poster/intro/movie is today.

When the axe drops in the intro: HAIKIBA!

But on with the review:

A woman tries to turn the tables on a psycho, with varying degrees of success; her methods are explained in flashbacks.

Interesting premise. Interesting advice.

But it doesn’t progress much from said premise, so there’s really little point in watching.

I mean, the intro…the flashbacks, the initial “chase”, the endless story possibilities provided…at a certain point they just collapse, and you’re left with nothing except some disturbing images and an incredibly weak and unconvincing ending.

Grade: D-
