The Green Slime 9/30/22
I think if you only watched the indoor/on-set scenes of this movie, you would think it was actually a pretty good movie.
The Beastmaster 9/29/22
And then there's Kodo and Podo, Dar's "two thieves", who do all kinds of shit in this movie just totally credibly, no puppets or anything, just two ferrets here owning the movie.
Conan the Barbarian 9/27/22
In high-school, it continued to be a film that had a cult-following and talked about as one of the cool movies and, my senior year, we even watched it on LSD - a lot of LSD - and we all loved it.
I thought it was incredibly interesting, reading about the making of the film, that Lemmy Caution was an existing Secret Agent character from novels and films of the novels and was played by this actor, Eddie Constantine, and Godard just decided to "write" a film (there was not so much a script) whe...
A Trip to the Moon 9/20/22
Honestly, this is such a bizarre film, so far beyond what I expected (though it was tempered a bit by having watched several of Melies' short-films over the last few years), and when I made my captive audience watch it the other night, even they commented how much further "out there" this was than a...
The Hobbit 9/18/22
While the lone bright spot in Jacksons second Hobbit film was Cumberbatchs Smaug, Boone is fantastic and, really Cumberbatchs take sounds like hed watched this film and took notes from Boone.
It! The Terror from Beyond Space 9/13/22
Not sure if my favorite shot is of the crew-members walking down the side of the ship as it travels through space (actually pretty cool for an independent film from 1958) or if its the shot of the two crew-members lighting up cigarettes together.
The movie is fairly slow and not nearly as funny as any Python film or sketch I can think of, with a startling amount of the humor being scatological.
Land of Doom 9/11/22
Like there was a sale on studded black leather so they decided to make a movie and then started filming while they figured out what the people in studded black leather should actually, ya know, do.
Star Slammer 9/08/22
The movie is unbelievably silly and the acting is so atrocious that it makes one wonder, how can there be so many people out there supposedly trying to get into the movies when all the people in this movie did?
