For Singles Only (1968)
God Awful Tripe Not Even Bad Enough to Be Campy or Funny
Has to be one of the worst movies I've ever seen. I love anything made in the 1960s due to the cars, clothes music etc. But this doesn't even have much of any of those.
Lana Wood is pretty, so is Chris Noel who plays a tramp pretty well. But Ann Elders is just abysmal. Her acting abilities were shown to their full extent on Laugh In or maybe a 2 minute sketch on "Love American Style" but her constant mugging and looking off in weird directions is distracting here.
John Saxon is hot as always Peter Mark Richman plays a degenerate sleazebag well as he has done in other movies like "House on Greenapple Road".
Even the music in this sucked. The only musical segment that had a groovy beat was prior to Lana getting raped. You always know a rape is looming when you hear a buzz guitar...LMFAO!
Not much plot in this turkey just about a bunch of singles living in an apartment complex and the various goings on. Part of the problem with this movie is that it fluctuates bizarrely between comedy and drama and doesn't do either one very well.
Watch at your own risk you may need brain surgery after.
Just Go with It (2011)
Unfunny Abysmal Movie!
I had the misfortune of sitting through this movie with an elderly patient and his wife. NO ONE laughed much in the entire theater.
The jokes were obviously written either by a 12 year old boy or someone with brain damage.
Why does Jennifer Aniston keep playing the SAME character over and over? Adam Sandler is supposed to be a plastic surgeon and Aniston his assistant. Their unprofessional behavior would have me running from this office. Jokes were stupid and crude. Sandler fakes being married to pick up women because he was hurt years ago at his wedding. Stupid premise to begin with and it just got worse and worse.
Nicole Kidman did nothing to liven up this dreary mess.
Avoid this like the plague unless you are into sadomasochism.
Paranormal Activity 2 (2010)
Abysmal Non-Scary Rehash
I was not scared one iota. This sequel was not above the original (which was also not scary) and I kept hearing how much better this was which prompted me to see it.
Sister of character in original apparently has a son the Demon wants due to some bizarre story about her dead ancestor making a deal with a Demon for wealth or some other nonsense. Then just like in the original weird things happen at night. Blah blah...
Just one long boring scene after another follows none of which generated any thrills for me.
Paramount is laughing all the way to the bank.
Hawaii Five-0 (2010)
Every cliché in town (or should I say island) was in this. Actors all lacked charisma which is what made the original so good. Sadly there are also no great roster of TV Character actors which the original used liberally.
I'm really sick of the shaky camera to make things look like more is happening than what really is. Even the opening credits were cut in half timewise. I lost interest after 20 minutes.
I was hoping for a better show, better acting and more charm but this is what passes for entertainment these days folks. I'll stick to the DVD's of the original.
William Asher makes an obscene Cameo !!!
Great episode where Endora turns Darrin into a vain self centered oaf. Lots of great 60's fashions in this one. Liz never looked more sexy than she does in a Silver sequined mini dress. Darrin resembles Elvis in a gold lame suit and sideburns. What a pity Dick York was in severe pain as he would have been great to finish the last 4 years of this series, I do love Dick Sargent as he was more snide and mean towards Endora. Apples and Oranges.
William Asher (Liz's husband at the time and director of the show) makes a cameo as a driver honking at Darrin while he preens in his car mirror. If you look close William mouths an obscenity (inaudible) while honking his car horn at Darrin. Liz and Bill were known for their risqué humor and this proves it.
Top 10 favorite episodes of Bewtiched.
Mondo Mod (1967)
Watch for the L.A. Locales Only
Far from a great documentary but fun to watch for the various Los Angeles locations. Weird mix of titillation and anti-drug messages. I couldn't tell whether this was pro or anti teens and LSD. I was a kid in the 60's and this was fun to watch for the clothes, cars and music but incoherent story and at times looked like the director was on acid. Curio piece just take it too seriously. The interviews look stilted and awkward, what little acting this had was very bad. The Whiskey a Go-Go scenes were my favorite and really took me back to that era when my Dad would take me to places that had live music.
How they got LA DJ Humble Harv to narrate this is beyond me..they must have thrown some serious cash his way.
The Big Bounce (1969)
Lushly Filmed Trash. I Mean That in a Good Way.
Most of the other comments on here are pretty accurate. This movie really showed the loosening up of Hollywood as far as female nudity went. We get to see the beautiful Leigh Taylor-Young in various stages of nudity and looking good dressed too. Ryan never looked better. Lee Grant perfected the role of a perpetually uptight woman in Valley of The Dolls and this seems to be a continuation. The only actress in this movie that really shined was Cindy Eilbacher who could act rings around any other child actor of this or later era. Her few scenes really stand out and almost seem to be from another movie. Loved the cars, the clothes, the great character actors and YES I did love the music but it was all wrong for this movie. I think this music was meant for Dean Martin's last Matt Helm movie with Sharon Tate that never got made. It was lush orchestrated loungy pop music but was all wrong for a crime-noir movie. It really threw me off but I enjoyed hearing it from another room when I wasn't watching the screen. This also has some really great campy lines mainly from Van Heflin calling Leigh a "Quiff" in one scene and various other vague vulgarities. I really enjoyed watching Van go near the edge of camp and then pull back a bit. James Daly was perfect as a high class sleazebag. Look for Ryan's brother Kevin as the passenger in the dune buggy scene.
Overall much better than the horrendous remake, especially if you like movies that are so bad they are good.
Solid Gold (1980)
Schlocky, Campy show only should be viewed for Nostalgia
Well, this show was probably the campiest thing on TV in the early 80's. My dancer and nightclub entertainer friends used to always reference this show whenever they saw someone over-doing it on the dance floor. Yes, the dancing on this show was over the top and a bit pretentious and yes the singers were always lip syncing so they didn't mess up their hair or makeup. Yes, Andy Gibb was usually high on cocaine, Dionne Warwick slurred her speech and Marilyn McCoo was just too nice and perky but if you want to see some really horrendous 80's clothes and hair then by all means tune in. However, I would keep a syringe filled with some insulin nearby. Probably one of the few TV shows of the 80's that was just too 1980's even when it was currently being filmed. Harmless bit of fluff that wasn't taken seriously by any REAL dancer I knew but I'm sure they ate it up in the Midwest.
The Sex Symbol (1974)
Cheap sets, overacting by all !!! But Connie looks stunning!
I saw this when it first aired as a 13 year old, and I just viewed it again on a bootleg DVD. I loved most TV Movie's of the week as this was. Most were great little well produced dramas however this one sadly was not one of them. Thinly based on the life of Marilyn Monroe, Connie Stevens spends most of the time screeching out her dialogue to the point you almost want her to commit suicide so you don't have to hear her whining. Shelly Winters who I ALWAYS find fascinating to watch even in bad movies is just dreadful here. Her performance is just so bland and not even bad enough to be funny. SHe plays a Hedda Hopper type who is so jealous of Connie she continually insults her not just to her face but on her TV Gosspi show as well. You want to put a bullet in her head she is such a bitch. William Smith is gorgeous as always but has little to do here playing a "Joe Dimaggio" type character. I couldn't believe how bad the sets and costumes were. The sets looked like they recycled them a year later for Happy Days and the 70's clothes were odd for a movie set in the 50's. Of course Happy Days did that too, had 70's hair on a show set in the 50's. was hoping this movie would get bad enough to be funny but it didn't even go there. A major disappointment, but if you love Connie then watch it in orgasmic delight because she does look beautiful here.
Julie Newmar looks great but has little to do
Done towards the end of the series the writers apathy is beginning to show. Endora tries to test Darrin's marital fidelity by changing a cat into a woman. The woman is Ophelia (Julie Newmar) who normally I love but she seems a bit stilted in this episode. It is ironic that late last year (Aug 2007) I spotted her walking in the neighborhood of one of my elderly patients I care for in a nice area of LA. I stopped and chatted with Julie. I mentioned this episode and she said Bill Asher killed all the comedy in this episode. She wouldn't elaborate but did say she liked Elizabeth. If you watch this Julie does seem like there is a lack of energy on everyone's part. I like Bill Asher but I've heard he can be a taskmaster and wants things his way. Who knows, but this is not the best episode of the last season. Although Liz and Julie both look great. I wish they had Julie's hair down instead of up in a bun most of the time, she looks stunning with her hair down. Liz had her hair up too which was a rarity for her. She on the other hand looks great with her hair on top of her head. It is just with her you never saw it before. Not in this style anyway.
