I went into this film expecting the normal run of the mill Sonny Chiba film, with lots of karate and ass kicking, but I instead got a disaster film in which my badass lead plays a tense train conductor and it just wasn't what I was looking for.
Worth a look if you know what you're getting into I suppose, as it's not a BAD movie, it just wasn't what I wanted.
Checking another Claude Chabrol off the list, this one was very engaging and a real beauty to look at. A fun story of a crazy family and the ensuing murder that happens in their neighborhood, this one is well worth tracking down.
This one was a tad uneven for me, even on a revisit, since I went into it hoping for more of a horror film than a comedy, but there's still some enjoyment to be had if you try to keep the expectations low. I mean, hell, there's even a young Jack Nicholson for your viewing pleasure, how entertaining is that?
Another wonderful Price performance as he slowly unravels completely while trying to kill his way to the throne of England, no matter what relative might be in his way. Great stuff, and something I was happy to finally cross off my List Of Shame.
Well worth tracking down.
okay, so if I'm being honest about this one, I just don't especially care anything about the Jules Verne adventure material upon which this is based, so a madman in an airship holding the world hostage until they disarm, in a strangely misguided attempt to make it a better place, most of that was lost to me. I was amused by a young Charles Bronson in a supporting role though.
Different strokes, so give it a spin, you may dig it quite a bit.
Another film crossed off the list during my Vincent Price marathon! Filled with gorgeous looking sets and atmosphere, it's easy to start to buy into Price's madness as he becomes increasingly unhinged.
Worth tracking down for a rental at the very least.
I gave this a revisit during my little Vincent Price marathon recently, and it holds up so very well. The scenery chewing by Price is just a delight, and these old potboiler/thriller type of films are a perfect way to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon.
Well worth tracking down.
I followed up my first time watch of the original with this sequel, and while it's perfectly fine, it ends up feeling like just more of the same, with our tragic lead's son following in his footsteps and tampering in God's domain, ending up with virtually the same fly head and arm for hsi troubles! Vincent Price returns, this time as uncle to the younger fly, and he's fine in his role, but this didn't really blow my skirt up overall.
This is a film that I was pleased to finally cross off the List Of Shame when I went down a rabbit hole of Vincent Price films recently. The film is a bit more melodrama than I was expecting, but for the time period, I dug the crisp B & W photography and being able to finally see a thousand things I've seen used in parody over the years in the original context within this film.
Well worth a look if you haven't had the opportunity.
Th is another movie that cast Ron Howard as a speed-obsessed young man, but it is a bit more charming than Eat My Dust, perhaps because the characters' motivations are a bit more sympathetic. You have a girl fleeing an arranged marriage, on the run from her father's goons who want to stop them from eloping in Vegas.
Worth a look.
I would venture to say that I liked, but didn't love this story of Ron Howard as a young man, obsessed with speed and driving his hotrod. I think the story about a guy stealing a stock car to impress a girl might've put me off, as it involves a ton of property damage along the way for people who have noting to do with him trying to get laid, so I couldn't root for this asshole, as I might rather see him in jail given his idiotic behavior and lack of concern for others.
It's a watchable flick, but maybe others will get more out of ti than I did.
Okay, so for whatever the first one lacked in sleaze, this one made up for it in spades, with some just creepy and unsettling humiliation stuff in there as a 'city girl' marries into a swamp family (the brother of our lead in the last film) and is then accosted by locals who aim to show her who's boss.
It's watchable, but the first film was a bit more fun as far as the exploitation elements go.
This is one of the older Takashi Miike films that I've always heard good things about, but hadn't been able to track down until pretty recently. I can say that it was worth the wait, a more thoughtful film in the midst of his period of excesses and violence at the time.
The film is an interesting journey of two men from the city venturing into the countryside and finding their own forms of absolution there, and I would recommend checking it out.
Give it a rental at the very least.
Crooked cops, drug deals, tons of action - this is a virtual paint by numbers action flick from Glickenhaus, but man is it a helluva lot of fun.
Well worth a rental!
I came to my current love of this one via a rather circuitous route, in that I rented it ages ago based on Quentin Tarantino mentioning it in an interview, and I recall friends and I sorta making excuses for it being okay, but low budget, etc. Now in my middle age and much more open to the world of cinema, warts and all, this stands above a lot of other fare of the time for sheer energy and creativity.
Well worth a look if you haven't had the chance.
I'd missed this one theatrically, but man, did I enjoy it after that blind-buy on Blu-ray! The animation and storytelling capture a perfect blend (for me, anyway) of the classic holiday specials and the comic strip itself.
Noah Baumbach is always a draw for me, so I went into this with high hopes and came away feeling sort of middling about it overall. A childless married couple finds new life and activities with a younger couple, but as things move on, they begin to notice the benefits of aging gracefully, etc., and they also start to suspect that one of their new friends may only be along for selfish reasons.
Worth a look if you have the chance, as it does have some pretty amusing moments, but it gets a bit too serious in the final reel for my tastes.
I gave this a spin via Netfux Streaming, and I was impressed. You get a nice overview of hip-hop fashion and how the earliest designers started out using pieces of other designers clothing to deconstruct and rebuild to make their own pieces, then went mainstream with a certain urban lifestyle look.
Worth a rental.
I was happy to finally get around to checking this one out and was left with a bit of a bad taste in my mouth, unfortunately. There's just another round of the 'Bond is obsolete in today's modern spy game' kind of rhetoric that I feel as if we've been hearing since the first Daniel Craig version, and I'm wishing they;d change the record, y'know?
The film was merely 'okay', when the other Craig outings have all felt VERY solid to me, so this ended up a let-down overall.
Perhaps it will grow on me in the future, but for now, I'd honestly say it's just worth a rental.
This documentary was pretty interesting, chronicling the history of Atari and their ultimate downfall: the dreadfully bad E.T. game that they dumped into a New Mexico landfill. We follow a group of fans as they try to find the certain area in which they would have been trashed, then excavate the area, which caused more of a stir than I honestly would have expected.
Short flick, interesting subject matter; give it a spin.
