Crop And Save
I have to admit, the somewhat bizarre title had me figuring this would be a waste of time to see. However, it turned out to be surprisingly well-done for a "B" movie. The movie, I assume was a Black Comedy. As a matter-of-fact, the whole film had a comic air about it. Somewhat dry and demented humor, but it was quite good and very funny. Of course, unless the viewer in tuned to the comedy aspect, they just may look at this as a poorly made horror flick. The acting was fair for this type of film, but there was a standout. Steven Brack reminded me of a young Rock Hudson. Move-star looks, tall, handsome, and with a keen sense of comedy. Brack just might be an actor to keep an eye on. Over all, if you're looking for a few laughs on a rainy or cold night, Island of the Cannibal Death Gods is worth a peek.
Assassination Tango (2002)
Robert Duvall's "Home Movies."
Hey, I like Robert Duvall, and have been a face of his since the mid 1960s. However, this film is nothing more then Duvall's tribute to his Argentine wife, who he met and later married. He is so in love with a woman 41 years younger than himself and her Tango dancing skills, that he spends countless time showing people dancing Tango. He should of made a 30 minute video on Tango, instead of surrounding a nothing story around the dance. A hit man in Argentina falls in love with the Tango. Tango is presented as "Life". Nothing is more important than dancing Tango, drinking whiskey and smoking. And Mr. Duvall as the leading man in an action film just doesn't go over. He's a senior citizen with a pony tail and a wife young enough to be his grand-daughter. Hey! more power to him! Let him use this excuse for a artistic film as a home movie.
Until They Sail (1957)
Sex or No Sex ?That is the Question.
When this film was made in the 1950s it was a shocker. Clearly daring for its time, it's now tame, to say the least. Paul Newman is handsome and gives his typical outstanding performance. He's a Marine officer and a gentleman, torn with his desire to have sex with Jean Simmons or not to have sex with her. Simmons wants to have sex because she hasn't seen a man in 30 months. The film paints females of all ages as "ready, willing, and able," to jump in bed with a man in uniform if 30 months go by. The rest of the cast is fair, and some are wooden and over-the-top. Combat deaths are mourned for a minute, and the widows are quick to forget. Until They Sail is out-dated, but if you're a Jean Simmons or Paul Newman fan, it's a good rainy night movie.
The Lords of Discipline (1983)
The Lords of Discipline is a slow-moving, dull, boring, and badly acted 1980s film. The characters come off as cartoonish. David Keith is likable enough, and does a fair job considering what he has to deal with. The rest of the cast overplays their parts and none of them come across as real. The Southern accents are terrible, and it's hard to figure if this is a military college or a high school military school. Regardless, everyone in the cast is way to old to be students in either case. The worst scene is when Keith and his room mates kidnap a lawyer and tie him to a railroad track. The whole scene came across like a cartoon and the actor playing the lawyer gave a junior high school acting performance. Forget the Lords of Discipline.
The Road (2009)
The Road is Pure Trash!
Trash! Trash! Pure Trash! A snore bore that covers itself in art. Typical rubbish of a world gone wild. Everyone looks like the hillbillies of Deliverence. Where have all the women and children gone? Heck, they are all being hunted by crazed hillbillies who eat them. Everything is destroyed. No food to be found. Everyone in old winter wear. Depressing and bleak. Starts off interesting enough and then, pure trash! Better off to rent No Blade of Grass, or the Omega Man, or even I Am Legend. To think, I spent $25 bucks buying this worthless trash! What were they thinking when they made this thing. The camera work is about the only good thing to say about this PURE TRASH! Ha!
The Son of Kong (1933)
The Son of Kong Knew Jujitsu!!!!
I just saw The Son of Kong again after some 40 or so years. What amazed me during Kong, Jr.'s fight scenes with the giant bear, that he used Jujitsu to win the fight! I mean he was using leglocks, armbars, choke holds, and rained punches down just like a veteran Ultimate Fighter! It really had me cracking up. And think, this was in 1933! So, I guess all UFC fighters owe their fight careers to "The Son of Kong".
Aside from that, this was a "cute" little film with lots of laughes, yet a bitter-sweet ending. You just had a feel sorry for "Little Kong". The poor guy was just looking for some love. he drowning scene at the end was a fitting end to a myth which forever lives in Hollywood film history. Time for a remake!
La discoteca del amor (1980)
La Discoteca del MUCHO AMOR!!!
Sure "La Discoteca del Amor" is pure trash, but it's fun trash! Set in 1980, it's the South American version of "Saturday Night Fever", with an Argetine flavor.Lots of hot guys and of course smoking hot Argetine beauties wearing tight clothes and strutting their stuff on the dance floor. The acting is over the top, and the storyline is pure fluff, and of course it's nothing more a cheap imitation of John Travolta and company, but who cares! It's just pure fun with lots of eyecandy! Reportedly some American actors are in this film under Spanish names, but since everyone is speaking in Spanish (or is dubbed in Spanish), who knows!
Combat Shock (1984)
Trash! Trash! Pure Trash!
Come on! This "shock" film is nothing but a series of rip-offs and stereotypes and is pure TRASH! The film tries to present a bleak look at "Viet-Nam Vets" who can't fit back into society following their combat experiences. Themes stolen from Midnight Cowboy (bleak New York City), The Taxi Driver (crazed vet shoots it out with three thugs at the end), Rolling Thunder (crazed and disturbed P.O.W. haunted by wartime nightmares), and Soldier Blue (hacked up bodies, severed heads, in a war setting) are chopped together to make this dull, and boring mess. Each character is too over-the-top and all come across as cartoonish. The acting is terrible and stiff. Honestly, the whole cast looks like heroin addicts. The mutant baby was borrowed from the horror film, It's Alive!. I'm sure the movie was made with good intentions to show the plight of Vets exposed to Agent Orange and Shell Shock, but it just doesn't get it's message across. Instead of wasting your money and time on this trash, you should rent The Best Years of Our Lives or Coming Home.
A Classic, Yet Politically Incorrect Western
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance rates as one of the top three westerns of all time; behind High Noon and Shane. A classic tale of good and innocence against bad. John Wayne gives his classic line, Pilgrim", and Jimmy Stewart in his typical emotionally charged performance. But, it's Lee Marvin who steals the film as the sadistic Liberty Valance. For those too young to recall, there was even a hit song entitled, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. However, this classic would be extremely politically incorrect today. The film pokes fun and humor at excessive drinking and drunks. It makes fun of stutters, and stereotypes gay men. There are a number of other "disturbing" points including John Wayne's character calling his African-American male servant, "Boy". If one can overlook today's thoughts, then this is truly a great acted western classic.
Surpringly Very Good!
I saw this film when it first came out in the early 1980s. I had a big crush on Kristy McNichol and just had to see this film. Somewhat an offbeat mixture of country humor and drama, The Night The Lights Went Off in Georgia starts off like a cornball comedy and ends up deadly serious.Kristy McNichol proved she could sing and was very good in "Baby Bye-Bye". Dennis Quaid was an up-coming star, and his rugged good looks, and boyish charm are backed up by his extremely well singing talents. Amazing that Quaid didn't become a country music singing star, I thought he was that good. Mark Hamill is pleasant has the love-struck cop, but it's an "ice-cream cone" performance. The late Sunny Johnson looked beautiful, and it's a real shame that this talented actress died so young.
