The Curse of Her Flesh (1968)

The Curse of Her Flesh, released in 1968, was the second instalment in Michael Findlay’s notorious Flesh trilogy, perhaps the most deliriously perverse of all 1960s sexploitation movies. This is bizarre entertainment, although entertainment may not be the right word to use to describe these cinematic sleazefests.The roughie sub-genre emerged as audiences began to tire of the rather innocent shenanigans of the nudie-cutie genre. If nude volleyball … [Read more...]

The Invisible Man (1933)

Universal’s 1933 The Invisible Man left me decidedly unimpressed when I last saw it some years back. That was on VHS and I thought that seeing it on Blu-Ray might perhaps improve the experience. It didn’t and I will try to explain why.The Invisible Man was directed by James Whale who established a very high reputation as a horror director with Universal with films such as Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein.The adaptation, by R.C. Sherriff, … [Read more...]

Kindergarten Cop (1990)

So lately I have been on a little bit of an Arnold Schwarzenegger (Red Sonja) kick lately… So far I have checked out Commando (1985)… A great movie that also stars Alyssa Milano (Crash Course) and Rae Dawn Chong (Quest For Fire)! A great action film about a former special forces officer who goes after the guys  that kidnap his daughter! That was a great movie that I actually hadn’t seen in a fair number of years. Another … [Read more...]

The Modern Day Western Movie Vs. The Classic Western Movie

T he Lone Ranger and Tonto in the updated adaption of the classic series! So these days when you  think of western movies, you probably are thinking about, The Hateful Eight (2015), or the True Grit remake… Or possibly even the tv show, ‘Deadwood’ with Ian McShane (Hercules) and Timothy Olyphant (Scream)… But for those of us born before 1990, alot of us used to watch the classic sphagetti westerns that Clint Eastwood (A … [Read more...]

Hollywood Babylon (1972)

Hollywood Babylon is a softcore sexploitation expose of Hollywood in the silent era. It’s a clever idea - take lots of stock footage from the First World War and the 1920s and lots of footage from silent movies, purporting to tell the story of Hollywood, then mix in some hot softcore sex scenes illustrating the most colourful episodes of Tinseltown depravity. So you get an 87 minute movie but you only need to shoot about 40 minutes of new footage … [Read more...]

Escape Plan (2013)

Ok, so Arnold Schwarzenegger (Commando) & Sylvester Stallone (Cobra)… Beyond the fact that it is kind of cool the fact that both of them are friends, and used to be co-owners of Planet Hollywood… I always thought that it would be kind of cool to see them do a movie together! Unfortunately, for most of my life I never really got to see them work together… It was not until the last few years when Sylvester Stallone kind of … [Read more...]

Five Great Seventies Sci-Fi Movies That Should Never Be Forgotten, But Never Be Remade!

THX 1138 is a classic example of a great sci-fi movie that I hope will never be remade! Ok, so one of the things that for whatever reason the studios seem to do in earnest… Instead of rebooting, or leaving classic franchises the way they are… They seem to remake them! This sucks… Because often times the remakes are no where near as good as the originals and sometimes actually bring down the popularity of the originals a little … [Read more...]

Batman: Year One (2011)

Ok, so if you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend watching the popular fox TV series, ‘Gotham’ with Ben McKenzie (88 Minutes)! It is a fantastic show that tells the story of how Bruce Wayne got set on his path toward becoming the Dark Knight! You know what? It is alot of fun! And speaking of: Ben McKenzie and Batman, there is another Batman vehicle that Mr. McKenzie is apart of that was a ton of fun to, that I think you guys … [Read more...]

The Pom Pom Girls (1976)

The Pom Pom Girls is a 1976 Crown International release that is probably more accurately described as teensploitation than sexploitation. If you want to get some enjoyment out of this one you need to accept it on its own terms. This isn’t Citizen Kane. It’s a teen comedy/romance.The four central characters are all students at Rosedale High School in southern California. Jesse (Michael Mullins) and Johnny (Robert Carradine) are football players, … [Read more...]
