Crop And Save
La muerte viviente (1971)
Ever since I was a kid, Boris Karloff has personified horror for me.
That's why I spend time on line looking for his films to watch.
I stumbled on this one tonight and decided to give it 30 minutes.
That's about how long it takes to decide if any movie is worth watching, I think.
Turns out it was one of his last films, when he was quite ill.
It's cheesy to the point of having a strong aroma.
It's not so much horrible (scary) as it is a visual combination of semi-shocking images, for example, a midget cutting the head off a chicken.
It's certainly not for everyone, but you know who you are.
Murder in Texas (1981)
A hard-to-find treasure!
It has taken me years to get a good copy of this film. Bring made for TV doesn't help.
Try to find it if you can. It's an extremely well acted film with some stellar cast members who do a great job.
San Elliott, Kathleen Ross, Farah Fawcett, and Andy Griffith, to name a few. This is a role for Andy Griffith that really shows his flexibility as an actor. It's so far from the comic personality most people remember him for.
Watch it. Enjoy it. And be impressed.
(If you can find it)
I really expected more out of this movie.
I like Mark Walberg generally. "Boogie Nights" was wonderful, and I also enjoyed "Happenings".
"Contraband" doesn't match up against these other films.
It's disjointed, choppy, and difficult to keep up with.
If you like Mark, you'll probably enjoy this movie.
Without him it wouldn't be much.
That's starpower for you.
It begins to pick up speed at about 1:20 minutes.
This is probably a watch-it-once-and-forget-about movie, but you might like to watch it once.
The Wolfman (2010)
I like it!
I'm a big fan of horror films, and I can remember going to the Saturday 9 cent cinema and hiding my eyes if the "horror" was too much.
Actually, I shut my eyes once tonight when I thought I was going to see "too much" while watching The Werewolf.
I was enticed to watch this film because of the actors involved. Anthony Hopkins, Benicio del Toro and Max Von Sydow. All favorites of mine.
Recommending this film is easy. I've read about four pages of both positive and negative reviews and decided to add my own.
I hope you enjoy it.
Not too bad, or MST3000?
This one has been in my collection for a long time, and tonight I decided to give it a watch.
I guess I bought it because of the cast, and I have to admit, I enjoyed it as much for seeing actors I remember...looking their best...as for the quality of the story line.
A young Michael Parks. I only remembered him from later roles...From Dusk 'til Dawn, etc.
Anyway, as I watched I tried to decide if it is a "good" film for the period, or a real candidate for Mystery Science Theater 3000.
The latter won.
Horror fans will love this one!
I thought I had already written a review of Prison, but I guess not.
Tonight I'm rewatching it after reviewing Lane Smith's film history.
This one is overlooked completely on the Wikipedia bio of Smith. There isn't even a picture of him.
I see it didn't make much money. That seems to frequently figure in to a film's "popularity", I'm afraid.
Viggo Mortensen was little know when he starred in this gem.
The special effects are especially good. They came up with some extremely creative ways of doing people in.
Smith plays the vicious warden especially well.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Painful but funny!
This is a black, slapstick, offbeat comedy that may not be for everyone.
It's not your usual Tom Selleck as in Quigley Down Under or Runaway.
This film really shows his versatility as an actor.
Don Ameche shows that he still has what it takes. It's the first time I've seen him since Trading Places and he's still going strong.
At first I thought Tom's mother was being played by Miriam Margoyles of Black Adder and Ed and His Dead Mother.
This film is heart-warming with a happy ending.
Definitely a family fun film for the right family.
Who dies first!
This is a lot like Blood Monkey. You can't wait for the various "teens" to get offed.
I like William Forsythe, and this is why I'm watching this film in the first place.
I have a lot of movies in my collection in which he stars, but I confess I've not seen them all.
I'm still waiting for him to appear in this one, and I'm over an hour into the movie. (He may have appeared momentarily in a window).
Anyway, I'm waiting to decide if I'll ever watch thls one again.
It depends on where it goes from here.
True Blood (1989)
A decent action film, fueled by Billy Drago
It's hard not to like Billy Drago if you like the psycho types. He's at the top of his form in this one, complete with a scar.
Check out Billy Drago's filmography if you want a list of R-rated fare: Hunter's Blood is a good example, and you will also enjoy Guncrazy, Vamp and Death Game.
True Blood has a lot of ups and downs, and it's probably not one you'll watch more than once or twice, but once or twice is enough to enjoy it completely.
Sherilyn Fenn is beautiful.
A young Jeff Fahey is interesting to watch, even if he doesn't really come off as the leader of an urban gang. The interaction between him and is brother (Chad Lowe) has some serious pathos.
Sunset Grill (1993)
A big disappointment!
Sorry, I have to agree with the other reviewers who have viewed and managed to get all the way through it.
It's tough sledding.
I went for the cast when I decided to buy and view this one.
All of them have made other films I've enjoyed, even Weller's "Robocop 2" (in my opinion, the best of the series.")
(In this one, Weller screams at everyone...always threatening to do them real damage.)
How about Lori Singer in "Trouble in Mind"?
Stacy Keach in "The Traveling Executioner"?
Alexandra Paul in "Christine"?
John Rhys-Davies in "The Naked Civil Servant"?
I think these are all excellent films you can enjoy many times.
Sunset Grill? If you decide to watch this one...don't pay too much for it.
