It Came from Hollywood (and other places)
22 February 2013 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This isn't as much a movie as it is a loose assembly of B- to Z-grade movies that have been produced between the 1940's and late 1970's (and not only did they come from Hollywood but Japan as well), narrated by numerous "Saturday Night Life"-comedians. We're talking movies like "Mars Needs Women", "Reefer Madness" (who but Cheech and Chong would be more likely to make fun of that one?), "The Incredible Strange Creatures who stopped living and became mixed up Zombies"; indeed, we're talking the works of Edward D. Wood Jrn.

It's nice to see some of your favorite 80's comedians, some which have passed on since (John Candy, Gilda Radner), others which have fallen into obscurity (Dan Akroyd, Cheech and mainly Chong). Granted the gags and jokes are all rather silly, definitely not especially gifted (and considering that this is from 1982 and that we are used to a little sharper, even cynical humor these days, they haven't aged very well), but then again, we're dealing with bottom-of-the-barrel films, hence let's just call them appropriate.

It's also interesting to reflect, 30 years down the road, how many truly awful movies have been produced since then and the path that the industry in general has taken. Movies like "Battlefield Earth" or M. Night Shyamalans "The Last Airbender" (well, actually every Shyamalan picture since "The Sixth Sense") would certainly not be out of place if they ever remade "It Came from Hollywood". However, there is one exception: while "It Came from Hollywood" focuses on films that were generally generated by a shoe-string budget, the more recent cinematic train-wrecks have swallowed millions upon millions of dollars.

Seven from ten points out of sheer curiosity value – wait; make those six points for having included "The Incredible Shrinking Man" and "War of the Worlds".
