The Delicate Delinquent (1957)
Looney Lewis in his first solo film.
Jerry proves in his first film outing after his infamous parting with his partner Dean Martin that his brand of comedy needs no specific straight man as the whole world is his straight man! Jerry plays a peripheral (read barely in) member of a gang who get into a rumble at his backdoor and he is subsequently arrested along with them. Seeing that he's different from the others, a sympathetic cop (Darren McGavin) takes him under his wing to guide him away from the other gang members and make an upstanding citizen of him. Which of course is a monumental task considering who he has as a charge. Speaking of which, you will get a 'charge' out of this movie.

Seriously, who the hell is Quagmire to judge Brian???
Just thinking of Quagmire's incredibly soiled track record as a human being, Brian's a SAINT compared to him. Furthermore Brian's usually the type to let things slide, and for an Athiest he practises the bible better than most so-called Christian types do (i.e. He'll try to love his neighbour and forgive trespasses) otherwise he would never have tried to mend fences with Glenn. Therefore, while I was never fond of Quagmire to begin with, instead of impressing me with his tirade towards Brian, he has instead dropped himself permanently into my 'loathesomely unforgivable' category right next to Herbert the pedophile.
Around and around we go...
Heres the hardest part of it all to swallow about THIS movie in the series. One MUST take into account that Taylor (Charlton Heston in the first film) and company took off for space BEFORE Cornelius and Zira arrived on Earth a few years AFTER his departure (in HIS ship no less) and change the course of the history yet to be written. They claim it was Aldo who leads the revolt against humanity and establishes the brutal human-persecuting society seen in the first two films.
Yet now its their son Ceasar who leads the revolt and establishes the kinder, gentler society seen in the fifth film and its epilogue.
Bear in mind that Taylor is STILL in space and will arrive in the 40th century. If he arrives in a world that humans are treated well, he will have no need to blow up the planet, thus Cornelius and Zira will have no need to go back in time and there will be no Ceasar to change the course of history, thus the 'Aldo time-line' will take hold thus provoking Taylor to blow up the world, thus provoking Cornelius & Zira to go back in time have their son who will lead the revolt instead...ad infinitum, ad nauseum...
Tim Burton should have considered this when making HIS film and maybe have Taylor (new actor) arrive at his destination point and after some adventures send Cornelius and Zira back in his ship, realizing that this is the only way to insure the movies title; "Destiny of the Planet of the Apes."
Spawn of the Slithis (1978)
Hey, it was the 70's
I won't go into any other mentioned details. But typical of the time period, the death scenes were sexist. Meaning to say, in one scene a young couple are attacked in a house boat. The guy is quickly and cleanly killed and that's it for him. The girls death, however was nothing less than a rape scene in slow motion, as the monster rips her clothes off a garment at a time and casually slurps his leech-like mouth on the exposed body part while she screams while kicking her black-leather booted legs helplessly in the air. We even see her breasts exposed in one slashing, yet they are not cut by his claws...but are slurped on rather noisily. Uh, but being a guy myself, I'm not really complaining...hee hee hee!
