Ballad in the Supermarket

Ballad of a Soldier (1959) was a recommendation from Angie Dickinson. No lie. Mr. Beaks interviewed her for AICN when she mentioned if he had seen the film. He hadn't and she recommended it. So there ya go. I had to get the VHS from my library network and it's definitely worth the watch. It boils down to a Russian soldier that asks for a short leave of absence in lieu of a medal. He meets a girl on his way home and they fall in love. Very good film. 7.9/10

The Horror Movie Night pick was Scott Spiegel's Intruder (1989) a.k.a. Night Crew: The Final Checkout, yet another one I haven't seen. It's a slasher set in a supermarket and features both Sam Raimi and Ted Raimi in supporting roles. Actually a pretty fun little flick with a decent twist. 6.5/10
