    Watched Jess Franco's ATTACK OF THE ROBOTS. What a great fun movie. Just what I needed. Eddie Constantine was pitch perfect and the photography was stunning.

    I like the film too, Scott. Apparently the blu-ray looks like shit though which holds me off from buying it. Still, good film.

    Dan In Real Life
    Another enjoyable Steve Carell movie. Widower and single dad of 3 daughters visiting parents and extended family meets
    interesting lady in a book store and falls head over heels. Even though she's dating someone they exchange numbers. Turns
    out when he gets back to the house she's there. Dating his brother. Awkwardness ensues. It's funny and well shot. I really liked
    it. It's got solid actors in it. And Dane Cook.

    I also really like 'Attack of the Robots' - it's a hoot, but often seems underrated by Franco fans (possibly just due to the lack of sex/horror elements, I suppose). For my money, it's definitely one of the best 'light-hearted pulpy caper' type movies he ever did, and yeah, beautiful b&w photography throughout.

    Lipstick
    Surprisingly rough and graphic rape-revenge melodrama from the 70's starring the
    Hemingway sisters Margaux and Mariel in their first roles. Apparently Michael Winner
    passed on directing it and Jeff Bridges was going to play Chris Sarandon's part as the
    rapist before changing his mind. It's well acted and suspenseful and the finale is great
    when Margaux runs around in a dress with a shotgun! Good stuff.

    The Carpetbaggers
    Thinly veiled (for legal reasons) Howard Hughes biopic starring an excellent George Peppard
    in the title role of super successful but ruthless businessman Jonas Cord Jr alienating absolutely
    everyone on the way to a lonely grave. It's very entertaining if a tad too long at almost 2 hrs and
    30 mins. The supporting cast is also excellent with Carroll Baker, Alan Ladd, Martin Balsam and more.
    Hell, even 40's film noir sex pot Audrey Totter () pops up for a small scene stealing role. Cool movie.

    Cuties
    While it's no Maladolescenza, they do sexualize these very young girls in a super creepy way. Despite
    that indefensible aspect, judged purely as a cinematic work it's not terrible. But not nearly good enough to
    recommend a watch. It's still sketchy stuff and worrying how the media instantly rushes to it's defense.
    There is a normalization agenda at play.

    Mayhem
    This was a lot of fun. The leading dude from Walking Dead is excellent and Samara Weaving is both cool and funny
    in this gory, virus induced fury, kill em all bloodbath. Director Joe Lynch does a fun cameo.

    The Belko Experiment
    Somewhat similar to Mayhem yet not. I enjoyed this too, mostly. It did feel a little like an excuse to throw as much
    savagery on screen as possible. Also the ending is a little silly.

    Deep Blue Sea 3
    Way better than expected. The actors are likeable and there's some decent suspense here and there. Above average DTV.

    Adrenalin - Fear The Rush
    A nice slice of hokum from the Pyuniverse, starring Natasha Henstridge and one of the worst actors on the planet Christopher Lambert.
    He's awful and looks like a cro-magnon but somehow it works (too bad he's in Epstein's black book ). This is low budget done right.

    Demonia
    Boring Fulci effort with some fun gore here and there. It stars some blonde girl I've never heard of who walks funny. And Brett Halsey. This could've
    been so much better because I dig the concept. The music sucks too, unfortunately. Why no Frizzi?? It could've saved it a bit. I did like when those
    super annoying drunks went and got themselves spiked to death in the convent.

    The Dark Corner
    Lovely film noir from the 40's. Mark Stevens and Lucille Ball (she was quite the fox back then, despite the poodley haircut)
    have lovely chemistry as the private dick and his secretary. Lots of snappy, fun flirty dialogue between them and the great
    William Bendix provides menace as the hulking guy stalking them for unknown reasons. I really enjoyed this film. I loved the
    reference to William Powell and the Thin Man movies. Bendix's demise was weak sauce though. He seemed smarter than that.
    Oh well...

    The Shadow Of The Cat
    Cozy little story on the English countryside about some nasty people murdering a relative for the inheritance,
    fake wills, even nastier relatives who come visit, a vengeful cat who witnessed the murder and the nice lovely
    girl who was the murder victims favourite relative that realizes something is not up to snuff here. This was lots
    of goofy fun. Everyone hams it up to the hilt. The cat fx are shit. You can clearly see the string they've tied to
    the cat to reign it in somewhat and the superimposed glowy eyes in the dark don't match at all and are super
    wonky in their jerky motion. BUT... it's fun seeing angery kitteh bump off murderous scum one by one.

    The Barge People
    A.k.a. Chavs on boats. Ambitious Wrong Turn rip-off. Meh, it's alright. This sort of stuff has been done
    way better before. Highly unoriginal.

    To Be Twenty
    Man, this movie was all over the place and not in a good way. It's too scatterbrained for its own good.
    Plus, the two main characters are severely unlikeable. They're obviously smoking hot (especially Guida)
    but that's about it. I wouldn't go so far as to wish death upon them but I can't say I really care either.
    Maybe I need to give it a second whirl sometime but as it is, I was very underwhelmed.

    The Carpetbaggers



    What a piece of shit. I loved it! Such a pointless, lurid, and trashy film but by god it's watchable. At it's best it's like a high budgetted Russ Meyer. The major difference being director Dymtryk t lacks all Meyer's cinematic sense. Usually he just dumps the camera in a corner, uses a wide enough lens and a deep enough depth of field that the actors can just roam around like it's a stage play and then goes off to lunch. It's rare to see a film that films that feels so much like a book. As if no interpreting for the screen has happened at any point. But the whole things so lush and Carrol baker's great. It's a shame this was made in Hays Code affected 1964. It's screaming out for gratuitous nudity nad profanity of whatever sort.

    People on imdb claim it had nudity from Baker when they first screened it. How truthful that is I don't know. Super entertaining movie, either way. There's an australian blu-ray on the way.

    Yes, I've been doing a bit of reading on it and come across that. My own take, which is pure supposition, is that those people are getting the films promotion mistaken with the film. Baker got her kit off a lot to promote the film and tease that this film was going to have actual nudity. I'd be hugely surprised if such footage exists on a tentpole studio film at this time.

    You might be correct.

    The Mystery Of The Wax Museum
    Fucking cool 30's horror movie with Fay Wray and Lionel Atwill. But it's Glenda Farrell who steals the show as a spunky journalist determined to find out what's really going on at the wax museum.
    I absolutely loved this.

    Satan Met A Lady
    Hilarious 30's version of The Maltese Falcon. The leading guy is a smooth cat and the supporting cast is suitably bonkers. I especially loved the polite british thief/burglar and the adorable secretary played by
    Marie Wilson. Very entertaining.

    LAPD To Protect And To Serve
    My Wayne Crawford mancrush refuses to die. Here he's a despicable scumbag cop among several other rotten eggs. The cast is great but the action scenes are sloppy and inept in a funny way.
    Marc Singer looks really odd when he's not Beastmaster pumped up. Charles Durning is solid as ever as kindly old ex cop father of Marc Singer's character who gets tangled up in corruption (Singer,
    not Durning) and tries to protect his young partner from it all. Things spiral out of control until it all culminates in a shitty shoot out at a pawn shop. Dennis Hopper's in it too but he's just there to
    shout about wasting tax payer money then disappear again. It was probably a one day gig for some coke money. Bad movie but entertaining.

    Top Of The World
    Hilarious Peter Weller/Tia Carrere action movie. Massively entertaining from beginning to end. Sidney J Furie is underrated. Dennis Hopper has a bigger part this time as the shady casino boss in bed with even shadier mobsters. Joe Pantoliano is his scumbag henchman. Weller gets out of prison. He's picked up by his wife who immediately takes him to Vegas to get a divorce. He's not allowed to gamble but still manages to win the jackpot on a slot machine. Then he ends up in the middle of a casino robbery where he becomes the main suspect. Then his day only gets worse from there. I wish this was on blu-ray. Great fun. Martin Kove is fantastic as a loose cannon robber who's in love with his co-robber played by Kevin Bernhardt from Hellraiser 3. Larry Manetti of Magnum P.I fame has a fun small role as a scaredy cat security guard.

    Snapdragon
    Fun cheesy 90's erotic thriller with Steven Bauer and Chelsea Field. It's also Pamela Anderson's movie debut apparently. Someone is having sex with guys then slitting their throats as they climax. When the deed is done she leaves a scarf over their eyes and scribbles some weird symbol on a mirror and that's how the cops find them. Bauer is pretty bad here as a police psychologist who starts thinking with his dick when he meets amnesiac Felicity (Anderson) and gets drawn deeper into the "mystery". Hey, it's early 90's Pamela Anderson. Despite the shitty boob job, she was hot as fuck back then. No man on earth would've passed up a shot at that. Chelsea Field is the cop on the case. Oh, and her and Bauer are involved which leads to some drama. This movie is ok. I like cheesy erotic thrillers. Always have. It drags a little but is mostly solid. And again, it's Pamela in her prime. Larry Manetti shows up again as a cop colleague of Field's character.

    Star Spangled Rhythm
    One of those: "-Hey, let's throw a flimsy plot together and have ALL our biggest stars come in for a skit or two then cap it off with a big patriotic propaganda number." type of movies from the 40's. A gate guard at Paramount, who used to be a big time cowboy actor back in the day has told his sailor son that he now runs the studio. But gadzooks! now the son is on shore leave and is headed right towards the studio to come see him. Hijinx ensue to cover up his true status at the studio with the help of a lowly telephone operator girl. Like I said, the plot's flimsy but this was a lot of fun. Betty Hutton carries the whole thing when the stars aren't on screen doing their thing. She's funny, charming and sexy. Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Veronica Lake, Paulette Goddard, Ray Milland, Alan Ladd etc, etc. all show up here and do little fun bits. There's a really fun bit with Bob Hope and burly William Bendix in a shower that had me in stitches. Very entertaining.
