Review :

Come on, this is horrible!

Undersea disaster! Submarine is sent to save explorers from over-sized iridescent catfish! This was an absolutely horrible film, basically filmed by combining actors with normal, harmless tropical fish. The budget must have been incredible -- hire lackluster actors (of course, Ernest Borgnine is an exception) and buy a fish tank! If you give it a title reminiscent of Kubrick maybe people will think it's great! Plus we can tie it in with aquarium sales and pet shops! Lots of nice colors but the film was one of the worst ever...and not "fun" bad like "Manos" or "Plan Nine" -- I mean truly bad, boring, stupid, inept...the list goes on and on.

good western spoof

as a spaghetti, collector for past 10 years, i am getting towards the more offbeat, madcap, in the genre, this spaghetti, or Italian 70s sex comedy has its moments.

director, Bruno Corbucci brother of Sergio,gives us a stooge western that i found very enjoyable, three Texas rangers join up and escort a clandestine female spy,Dr. Alice. Karin Schubert into war torn Mexico, the soundtrack, for most spaghetti collectors is an odd band of salsa,African steel drum, country western and 40s big band.

overall not one of the collect-able soundtracks, for collectors, it holds a dubious historical significance, in that it shows full frontal nudity, Karin Schubert,in a bath tub, others of note are Black killer, Apache woman basically not for those expecting a dollars,or dtango more of a trinity,George Eastman seems only to have a bit part which was strange as he had starred in quite a few at the time.

Review :

A wild necrophile ride!

This truly exemplary vomit of unbound euro-weirdness is rendered in living, lurid colour by fiendishly tasteless director Manuel Cano who's knack for nut-ball visuals is given ample room in his grimy opus 'The Swamp of The Ravens'. While there are many references to Edgar Allan Poe the film owes a huge debt to H.P Lovecraft's immortal short story 'Re- Animator'. (There are also a few similarities to Stuart Gordon's landmark film; especially in the way the 're-brained' awaken in such a full-voiced fashion!) Much like Lovecraft's grimpen tale, the disgraced medic continues his debased experiments with circumventing the finality of brain death, and perfecting his troublesome elixir death, in a suitably Gothic locale; a moldering, cadaver-infested swamp seemingly overrun with these truly gross-looking Raven / vulture hybrids constantly shrieking as if at the brink of death themselves. The morbid and suitably weird psychedelic pan-pipe soundtrack by Joaquin Torres doing much to increase the already monumental levels of brain-tweaking oddness! (There is this one wildly incongruous montage featuring a series of especially malefic-looking stillborn babies in jaundiced pickle jars which is in delightfully bad taste!) 'The Swamp of The Ravens' is delirious, psychotronic madness that should appease the gibbering necrophile that lurks deep inside all of our murky synaptic folds!

Review :

Powerful & sleazy kung fu drama

From the first frame of "The Delinquent" it is obvious that this angry film is very unlike the pretty, stylish films known to come from the Shaw Bros, and director Chang Cheh. Artificial sets are done away with, in favor of real location shooting. The film captures the attention from the beginning, with close up shots of mouths, shoving greasy food in and chewing like wild dogs. The neighborhood is made up of cut throat thugs, and the landscape resembles a maximum security prison with it's dismal concrete buildings. Wang Chung, in a rare turn as the main character, is great as the young martial arts protégé, living with his hard-working father, after his mother has left them both. John Shen (Chung), frustrated with a life of poverty, is seduced by fast cars, expensive clothes and beautiful women, when a gang boss offers to hire him for his martial arts skills. A plan to rob the business where is father is security guard, goes wrong, and all hell breaks loose. 'Street Gangs..' is a very grim and serious film about betrayal and redemption and a lot of it is downright depressing. Ti Lu is excellent in the role of Shen's hardened, but decent father, and the cast is all around fine. Loaded with amazing camera work and artistic touches, this one is very unique within the genre. This isn't really a 'kung fu flick,' but rather a serious crime-drama with martial arts included. Even the English dubbing is done well, very seriously this time, although I would like to see it with the original Mandarin language track someday. Great, nihilistic film, and the last fifteen minutes has to be seen to be believed; if you are looking for a light kung fu flick with bad dubbing and silly scenarios, look elsewhere; "Street Gangs of Hong Kong" is not exactly light viewing...

The cult of the "Little Mother" has swept the country. She's always scheming. Even when she learns she has a fatal disease, she calculates how to leave a legacy in death.

Review :

Political Exploitation Movie

This curious little film is clearly based on the life story of Evita Peron, despite renaming the characters and despite making the usual disclaimer that the story is entirely fictious. The film is a strange hybrid between political drama and exploitation film; Metzger even prepped up a sex scene with a couple of close-to-hardcore inserts with body doubles.

The most striking characteristic of the film is perhaps the hypocrisy of the Marina Pinares character, playing publicly a squeaky clean do-gooder while she is privately prepared to use sex and murder to get to and stay at the top. Christiane Krüger remarkably manages to make this appear believable. I find it hard to think about any other actress who would have been suitable for the role.

Review :

early Scorsese masterpiece

Mean Streets was a brilliant early film by Martin Scorsese. It was his first ever collaboration with Robert DeNiro. Their very successful partnership has produced some of the best movies ever made: Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, and Casino. It also helped launch Harvey Keitel to stardom.

Keitel as Charlie and DeNiro as Johnny Boy deliver great performances. Scorsese's direction is strong. Even close to 30 years ago, these three men show the talent which would eventually place them among the very best in the business. Scorsese uses a great selection of popular music in Mean Streets and that has become a trademark of his.

Mean Streets easily ranks with Scorsese's best. 9/10

Review :

Deliriously anarchic crime drama

The focus of this highly engaging second installment is Kin'ya Kitaoji's "Shoji Yamanaka" character, a brooding, shy, impulsive man who places the highest premium on his love for his boss's niece, a humble, passionate woman who vows to wait for him when he is incarcerated for a series of brutal murders.

The political machinations of the yakuza world provide bloody, non-stop thrills in this deliriously anarchic crime drama that is never less than fascinating for its attention to personal details and vivid pictorial exploration of a criminal, country-wide hornet's nest.

Despite the impressive performance of Sonny Chiba as an ultra-psychotic "torpedo" and the weighty presence of Bunta Sagawara (who takes a back seat in this episode), the film does belong to Fukomoto. His turn as Yamanaka is extraordinary and he makes us empathize with the character. Fukasaku's handling of the romance is deft and touching without ever becoming cloying.

Once again, the action sequences are brutal and unforgiving and the camera-work by Sadaji Yoshida is, at times, mesmerizing. The film's final twenty minutes, where Yamanaka is hunted in the rainy laneways of Hiroshima, are quite beautiful.

A plaudit should also go to composer Toshiaki Tsushima who delivers a driving, organic, highly memorable score.

Another triumph.

S10 Reviews: The Candy Snatchers (1973)

S10 Rating: * * * * / * * * * * The Candy Snatchers is an interesting sort of film. On the surface is looks a bit like a standard movie-of-the-week thriller. It has 70's photography, 70's woka-woka music and so on. But the Candy Snatchers turns out to be a rather clever exploitation drama with a clever script. Three thugs hatch a foolproof scheme to get a briefcase full of diamonds by kidnapping a young schoolgirl and holding her for ransom. But the plan goes south when some unforeseen wrinkles appear. Even though the Candy Snatchers has a conventional feel to it the film is far from it. The director manages to make some good tension with the twists and turns of the thieves and Candy's plight. The acting is above average for this type of film. The thieves all have interesting personalities and most characters generate sympathy for them. The Candy Snatchers is a rare 70's treat that will satisfy exploitation fans and thriller fans alike.

Rocky Horror Inspiration

If Richard O'Brien, writer of the "Rocky Horror Picture Show", wasn't inspired to write his movie after seeing "Horror Hospital" I'd be very surprised. So many similar subjects: sexually active couple in old castle/mansion, leather clad bikers, gore, evil doctor, brain manipulated minions. Even the couple's arrival is almost a carbon copy of Brad and Janet's greeting by Riff Raff who is in this case a freaky dwarf (pc - little person). This movie was released in 73' which would have been just a year before he began the songs for his soon to be musical "Rock(y) Horror Show." This is a must see for any RHPS fans.

Sex is overrated

Sex is overrated.

This movie perfectly portrays how women and men use sex as a weapon against each other. They have explicit love lives with many other people. It is a well thought out movie that teaches you a lesson that sex is not to be taken lightly. I think that this should be shown to all high school kids to teach them that when you endure sex with another person, you are taking on a huge responsibility. Carmine Caridi is sensational along with his costar Andrew Duncan. This movie is well thought out and the plot keeps you jumping out of your seat every minute. It has a twisted and unforgiving ending which leaves you saying WOW. I would suggest going to your local video store and renting it today.

Review :

not much here

Despite an overdose of social sincerity in the first half, this film basically emerges as your typical early 70s exploitation fare. It's about a couple of housewives whose husbands leave for a sporting trip so they decide to explore their relationship with each other, in a romantic way. One of the girls (I couldn't tell you which one at this point) gets really involved with it on a personal level and the other is just playing around and is really more interested in cheating with a neighborhood guy. There's a brief bit of action when the hubby finds out but other than that it's a lot of bad dialog and a little bit of hard exploitation. The serious girl goes to a drug party with a couple of lesbians and almost gets seduced by some kind of a big-shot art personality (another woman).

I found the girl on girl exploitation to be decent but quite brief and lacking in any kind of fetishism or visual humor. The girl on guy exploitation was even more dull. So if anyone is looking at this comment for a recommendation I'd tell you to avoid it unless you're particularly interested in the subject of Hollywood portrayals of homosexuality. If you already saw it and you're looking for more information I don't have any, and if you're looking for insight I don't think there's much to see into here.

Review :

Soft X drama.

Young man's Uncle dies in a car accident because he was having sex while driving. He leaves said nephew a fortune...provided he beds 7 selected women in 7 days. The catch? Young lad is a virgin.

The actor playing the lead ran the gamut of emotions. Confused and shy in the beginning, then starting to like it, then romantic. He even chewed out his fantasy girlfriend when he found out she was one of his uncle's concubines.

Best scenes include a romp in a closed furniture store at night, only to have to deal with a drunk watchman, and the outdoor scene with the peeping construction workers. The baseball jokes were groaners too.

This is soft x. Frontal nudity and no money shots.

The ladies looked good. They weren't surgically fixed so that was refreshing. Some of the set-ups were a bit hammy but otherwise this is a decent erotic outing.

Review :

Would have fared better as a TV variety show.

Johnny & Rijk (Kraaykamp & De Gooyer) had been performing comedy together since 1956 and had starred in several successful television series together, including a Dutch/German co-production before they ventured onto the big screen (with lackluster results) in "Geen Paniek".

Written by regular writer and beloved sketch comedy performer in his own right Kees van Kooten (based on ideas by Theo Joling and Gidi van Leimpd), "Geen Paniek" is an uneven hodgepodge that feels more like a series of sketches and improvisations than a coherent story. Johnny and Rijk go by their own names in the picture, even though Kraaykamp is depicted as an ex-jailbird. Starting off with a sight gag involving a prison tower, Johnny is released after serving a 5 year sentence and informed by Rijk that he cannot go back on TV because of his prison record. After borrowing money from Kraaykamp's auntie Toetje (Hetty Blok) they set themselves up as handymen, simply because Johnny has the uncanny ability to fix anything by way of a faux karate chop.

Aunt Toetje claims to run a massage parlor, which of course means it's a decadent Amsterdam brothel. Frans Kokshoorn appears as the villain of the piece, Koster, who wants to buy out dear old auntie and use the property to build a parking garage for the new Amsterdam Metro system. Two local crooks, Henkie (Hans Boskamp) and Rudolf (Ton Vos) catch wind of this and put the moves on Toetje to get their hands on the brothel instead. Meanwhile Johnny & Rijk's business is booming in a big way and since they are using Toetjes phone number to attract business, they have reason to stop her from selling the place as well. As if that wasn't enough, 'special guest star' Eddie Constantine also gets into the act as American businessman/gambler Silkstocking who claims to have only four months left to live.

Unfortunately none of these vaguely interconnected sub plots offer much in the way of laughs. Ko Koedijk's direction is sloppy and he seems to have allowed all the actors to add their own wacky ad-libs whenever they wanted to. Also notable is the complete lack of any nudity (a rare instance in a Dutch film) despite the abundance of pretty actresses portraying prostitutes. This once more leads one to the conclusion that Geen Paniek could just as well have been made for television at a lower budget. Perhaps the strangest twist comes at the end, when Johnny & Rijk start singing a song (aptly titled 'Geen Paniek') and the lyrics pop up on screen, enticing the audience to sing along (who says the Japanese invented Karaoke, eh?).

Although initially two more films starring the duo of J & R were planned, they never came to pass. Rijk declined to appear in "Heb Medelij, Jet!" (1975), preferring to act in slightly more serious films instead. Several of these co-starred Jon Bluming, who is also credited at the start of Geen Paniek, but appears to have been cut out completely. Johnny & Rijk did however both appear in Zwaarmoedige Verhalen Voor Bij De Centrale Verwarming" that same year but by that time it was clear their time as comedy partners were over. The pair of them teamed up again several times in later years, for instance in the sitcoms 'De Brekers' and 'Beppie'.

Review :

Shaw Brothers' take on the Wong Fei-hung phenomenon

Minor but well-mounted Shaw Brothers production based on the exploits of Wong Fei-hung, the turn-of-the-century kung-fu instructor/acupuncturist/Cantonese folk hero. (Liu Chia-liang later directed two Shaw films--"Challenge of the Masters" and "Martial Club"--with the young Wong Fei-hung as the central character, but "The Master of Kung-Fu" is about Wong as an adult.) Here he's played by Hong Kong's greatest character actor, Ku Feng (you've seen him in everything from "The One-Armed Swordsman" to "The Heroic Ones" to "Bruce Le's Greatest Revenge"), and this role gives Ku the relatively rare opportunity to show off his considerable fighting skills--both barehanded and with a three-sectional staff. The plot revolves around stolen jade ornaments and an attempt to frame Wong Fei-hung for the murder of a fellow kung-fu teacher, a hot-tempered man who had argued with Wong. Beautiful attention to period detail and, of course, great fight choreography by Yuan Hsiang-jen and Yuen Woo-ping--but you shouldn't expect a lot of bloodshed, since Wong strove to avoid killing or seriously injuring his opponents! A compilation of fight scenes from "The Master of Kung-Fu" is available on YouTube.

Review :

"B Must Die" is an overlooked gem

I caught "B Must Die" one night many years ago at 3:00 am on a local station's Late Late Show. This film can really surprise you. And it can really stick with you. Its one of those films that you keep trying to find out if anyone else has ever seen.

What looks like a typical low-budget, off-the-cuff 1970's attempt at a slick intrigue picture--you know the kind, I am sure--actually shows forethought, consideration, and carefulness despite its modest production values. You keep waiting some stupid, glaring hole in the storyline, or perhaps the editing (as often befalls lower-budget 1970's products) but this never happens and soon you forget about trying to shoot the film down. It is simple and straightforward and unpretentious.

Its got an exotic, (but at the same time gritty and impovershed) foreign locale and good, reliable, American actors. Darren McGavin gives a solid, understated performance as the unwitting dupe of a political assassination plot. He's just a regular guy made into a patsy on account of his finesse with a long-range rifle. The film has just that bit of menace in its villains and restraint on its violence to make you watch it carefully. It doesnt make the unfolding events too obvious or dumbed-down.

But what you really wind up paying attention to is not the plot in this picture at all--the story simply makes a memorable backdrop for the quite tender, bittersweet romance between McGavin and Stephane Audran. For all its puny size, this romance surprisingly evokes the rhythms of other, more famous film romances--like Doctor Zhivago for example. Its got the very same appeal: that of a man and a woman meeting by circumstance and trying to sustain a romance during a melee of larger political events over which they have no control. The romance is tenuous, and therefore somewhat melancholy from the start. McGavin is plainly a haphazard figure who has never had a chance to be in love with a woman like Audran--and the fact that he cant seem to extract himself from the jeopardy he finds himself in seems to hint that his late success will be short-lived.

But there is a wonderful visual of the two lovers strolling down a steep boulevard, huddled tightly against one another, making their way hesitantly through a crowd of rushing figures, enjoying their love for one another.

All the other bodies around them are clad in starched white cotton tunics and the couple stands out in sharp relief, proceeding in the opposite direction, wearing their everyday clothes, not really looking at anything, but just being close to one another for as long as they can. The figures stream by them like the forceful current of a river. The camera is held for just the right duration, and with just the right backward motion, following the actor's faces from the foreground, looking back towards them as they move. Its hard to forget that scene.

At the end you are really hoping for McGavin to find a way out of the snare--a snare thats been prepared with him as the bait.

If you ever see this film in listed on the preview channel do yourself a favour and give it a look--you wont be sorry.

Review :

Shades of grey

This film is about a man who committed a terrible crime during war and is now old and somehow sorry for what he did. The story about the preparations for his trial are described from different points of view, also from his.

It's interesting to experience Maximilian Schell mainly as a director. (The role he plays in the film is quite small.) Shades of grey dominate the film. It looks like made with a low budget in a studio with minimum scenery. Although the story is really interesting and the topic is controversial – shall an old, harmless man still be called to account for the crimes he committed a long time ago in war? – somehow the film doesn't keep awake. There are some surprising takes here and charming guest appearances there – there seems to be no continuity, no concept. The film seems „undirected`, uncoordinated. I guess, that's a common problem, when actors, who believe they know their way around, try and direct a movie.

The movie ends abruptly, after changing into a TV discussion. I got the impression that the film had been over for minutes and I was watching that discussion. Really weird.
