Sorry for the spotty service. Just busy, and tired/lazy upon return from the day job. Growing old ain’t for wimps!
Some recent video picks. First, and to be filed under “Films I knew About But Never Actually Saw,” the few that rated our very effusive thumbs up…
Kronos was great fun, an early 70s pop occult masterpiece. One of the last gasps of Hammer. Yes it’s goofy but not obnoxiously so. Also, CAROLINE MUNRO. Highly recommended.
Our education of John Ford continues. What an incredible film experience, and we watched it on our damn iPhone, my god. Yes we were surprised by the tacked-on rah-rah bit at the end, which comes close to crippling an otherwise flawless movie, but fuck it, it was 1940, people needed that shit. Ma Toad’s speech at the end isn’t one of consolation, certainly not self-congratulation, but a goddamn cry to battle, to keep on. Anyway. Thumbs up.
Some not so wonderful films, which we simply didn’t like or turned off include Barbarella, Frankenstein and the Creature from Hell, Count Dracula, um, others.
We really don’t know what to think about HUNTERS.
Is it supposed to be funny and cool yet taken seriously? It’s failing on all three injectors. We will give it one more shot (ep3), but HUNTERS is on thin ice. Just like all of us!
RIP John Saxon
Somebody beat us to it, and we’re paraphrasing, “Saxon’s eyebrows were often the best thing in many bad movies.” Thinking of lost friends today.
All for now. Be good, stay safe.
