Mimic (1997) Mimic (1997)

Directed by Guillermo del Toro. Butchered by the Weinsteins. There is a director cut. Titles are one of the most blatant ripoffs of Seven. In fact the background voices say the word “seven” twice during the Seven ripoff title sequence. I knew I had seen at least part of it on cable because I remembered the two kids…

Fletch (1985) and Fletch by Gregory Mcdonald - 1974 Fletch (1985) and Fletch by Gregory Mcdonald - 1974

Clue (1985) vs. Murder By Death (1976) Clue (1985) vs. Murder By Death (1976)

Saw a bunch of Clue nerds on another site saying Clue was the better movie by far. Maybe one person went 70s. Most hadn’t seen Murder By Death anyway. I have both on DVD. Murder By Death is one of my favorite movies.

Found another obscure one while doing this post, Downtown (1990), Forest Whitaker and Anthony Edwards. I also watched…
