Attack of the 60 Foot Centerfold

Attack of the 60 Foot Centerfold

★½☆☆ – (1995) – A model in need of standing out from her peers drinks a growth serum that increases her size, as well as one of her colleagues. Gives excuses for sporadic nudity, but the plot seems to want to focus on a story when all anyone wants to see is the battle between two gigantic bimbos. Cheapens the values of women, sleaze, and special effects.

Digging Up the Marrow

★½☆☆ – (2014) – A low-budget filmmaker agrees to film a supposed nutcase and his ramblings about monsters. Works okay when taking place in the real world, with real actors and directors portraying themselves, but makes a huge mistake in casting a known actor in the lead, rendering the reality gimmick moot. A good idea with enjoyable spots, but Adam Green grins too much and the tongue-in-cheek self-awareness gets old fast.

★★½☆ – (2014) – A young man who recently lost his parents travels to Italy where he meets a woman with supernatural issues. Involves early on, as the set-up is full of humor and intrigue, but once the secret is revealed the plot goes into corny cruise control. Endearing, well-meaning, and certainly unique.
