Kevin Strange’s I Love You, Daddy Movie Review


Louis CK fancies himself a modern auteur. After shooting his web series Horace and Pete in secret, using black and white photography and featuring European style long monologues with sparce editing and winning a Peabody award and primetime Emmy nominations, Louis decided to go back to the well and try again.
He shot his new film I Love You, Daddy much the same way, in secret and in black and white. I Love You Daddy is stylized with old timey title cards and an orchestral score giving it an early 1900s film feel.
Only it’s not a quaint old film at all. It’s a raunchy modern comedy that pushes the edge so hard, I am calling it the single most provocative, non-pc film of the decade.
I Love You, Daddy is about a tv writer/producer named Glen (played by Louis CK) who is treading water in the industry. He’s already won his accolades and his awards, has had shows on TV consistently for years and is, at this point, just signing contracts for new shows just to sign them.
His life is turned upside down when the potential star of his new show (played by ) invites him and his teenage daughter China (played by ) to a party in the Hollywood Hills. At this party is a man named┬áLeslie Goodwin, a famous film director and Glen’s filmmaking idol.

Weird Movie Recommendation: Laserblast (1978)


Laserblast is a terrible movie. So bad, in fact, Mystery Science Theater did an episode dedicated to it. But back when little Kevin Strange saw this sucker on USA Up All Night in the early 90s, I hadn’t even heard of MST3K. What I did have was a heavy hankering for monster movies!

And not only does Laserblast have freakin LASERS and spaceships in the first minute, it’s also got some badass stop motion alien monster that reminded me of the┬áRay Harryhausen Sinbad movies that I loved as a kid.

What follows is a goofy damn tale of a weird ass kid who stumbles upon a laser gun in the desert, a cop who has absolutely no reason to be looking for said laser gun but does anyway and the aliens who left it on earth frantically turning their space ship around to go get it.

Throw in utterly pointless pool party scenes and nonsense characters like the laser gun kid’s girlfriend’s senile ex military father and two goonie traffic cops that make Barny Fife look competent and you’ve got a whole hell of a lot of time wasting fluff and a little bit of ultra cool laser gun alien fighting madness.
