On Ari Aster's The Strange Thing About the Johnsons:
So, it turns out that Ari Aster, the director, is Caucasian. This explains everything! The only logical explanation for this foolery is that it's based on his life story, but he casted black actors to denounce speculation. 😂

Found this review from RJ on letterboxd while researching The Chain Reaction (1980):

"I watched this entire fucking movie waiting for Mel gibson. He's the top credit. I never saw Mel Gibson. Liar ass credits."

He's credited as "bearded mechanic", far down the cast list. In all fairness to the disappointed Mel Gibson fan, after actors get famous their early work often gets re-released with their name above the title, even if they were no more than a glorified extra.

Did he watch it off this DVD?

According to the IMDb page, he isn't even officially listed in the end credits!

I guess. And, you're right, of course. Just love the phrase "liar ass credits".

According to Wikipedia the movie was billed as "Mad Max meets The China Syndrome" but Gibson doesn't even appear in it. I guess whatever scene he was in got cut.

Sort of an odd thing to have in one's filmography the year after starring in the most profitable film that had ever been made (Mad Max).

I would have been more upset if I rented it and didn't see Keanu Reeves.

Well, it’s Umbrella’s November release in their Ozploitation Classics line, and I, for one, found the trailer on their site very appealing.

A patron returning DVDs yesterday wrote:I fell asleep four times during Phantom Thread. I hated it! And it’s a shame, because I really love Jeremy Irons.

Who would continue to watch a movie after the THIRD time they fell asleep? What kept waking them up?

There is also tons of male nudity in this film. Penises and testicles are not aesthetically interesting to me. Nor is the male form of much interest beyond that either. And there are fat disgusting men who are naked in this film. Why does anyone need to see any of this? It's just completely ill conceived and terrible and above all BORING.

I forget where I read it (otherwise I'd link), but there was a hilarious review of Walerian Borowczyk's Immoral Tales that revealed rather more than I expected to read about its author's weird hang-ups about... well, naked women looking completely normal.

Which reminds me of one of the funniest arguments I've ever seen online. It was about contemporary female pubic hair fashion, and the two most vociferous participants were this man whose samples seemed to come exclusively from porn (so biased towards exhibitionists who might have professional reasons for shaving it off), and my wife, a midwife-turned-obs-and-gynae ultrasonographer who even then had notched up over a decade's experience. In other words, her data set ran into the tens of thousands, comprising women of all ages and backgrounds, teens to geriatric, and you'd have thought that most people would accept this as pretty clinching. But no - the bloke was the kind of man who would never accept that a mere woman could possibly know more than him (even when she clearly did, and for absolutely obvious and unquestionably clinching reasons) and so he kept it going, digging his hole deeper and deeper with each successive post. I'd link to it, but sadly the forum that hosted it suffered a terminal crash a couple of years later and lost everything.

I have no interest in naked men. I have no interest in naked men. I have no interest in naked men. Why can't these ones be more attractive?

Probably the sound of toast being scraped at nerve-shattering volume.

Loved this. Looked everywhere for this movie. Never thought I'd find it on amazon. Wow! Wanted my kids to see this as we live in Oklahoma. They couldn't understand how a walmart could be so small and that could happen. Afterwards they just kept asking questions about how small walmart really used to be? This was a great way for my kids to learn what life was like not long ago. It was very detailed and very family oriented movie.
