The long sobs Of the violins Of Autumn Wound my heart With a monotonous Langour
10 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In this film Gene Autrey stirs the loins as Gene Uterus, half brain damaged (I think) cowboy singer who plays as part of Radio Ranch, a radio programme/subliminal mind control experiment. Gene's all about the community, so he allows bizarre kid/adults to go onto his show and gibber on about the thunder riders, who happen to be underground alien types with their own kingdom who turn up far to often in these thirties serials for me to give an absolute sh*t about.

Gene's also got other grief from some guys trying to Scooby Doo the surrounding land so they can get to some radium and all that crap. Basically, Gene gets into a scrape with some folks, has to get to his regular radio show unless he 'loses the contract', and has to kind of...well not save the world, but save his scrotum.

This is the kind of film where people survive plane crashes, there's loads of bluegrass music, and basically blah blah don't care why do i do this.

Kill me. Seriously. What kind of life leads to watching this kind of stuff.

I loved this film. Kill me. Loved it. I give it a ten.
