I've seen In the Realm of the Senses and would agree that it's well done, and as you've said, not for everyone. I note that when this was imported into the U.S. back in the day, they had to cut a few seconds, lest they run afoul of U.S. child pornography laws. To this day, I think that it still has some strong, explicit images.

The Laughing Policeman (1973)

"In San Francisco, one victim in a mass murder is a police detective. His partner and a new partner investigate in the city's seamy side." (IMDb)

Great crime drama directed by Stuart Rosenberg and starring Walter Matthau, Bruce Dern and Louis Gossett Jr among others.

The story is based on one of the swedish Martin Beck novels written by Sjöwall & Wahlöö.
Loved the slow tempo, the San Francisco scenery looks awesome as always and the cast rocks. Recommended!

I think that The Laughing Policeman is quite underrated. People always remember Walter Matthau for his funny roles with Jack Lemmon. He was a consummate dramatic actor too. And you have Dern and Gossett, a "Swedish mystery novel" source, and San Francisco scenery. (Was there a more beautiful, photogenic city in the U.S. in the mid-70s?) What else do you need? An excellent film, worthy of rediscovery.

Matthau was awesome and of course he never laughs [Smile]
Frisco just rocks and i really liked that there was no studio settings used. Only real locations and interior scenes filmed in those same locations.

Matthau also starred in the classic crime thriller Charley Varrick the same year as he did The Laughing Policeman.

Don't miss out on the upcoming UK blu-ray from Powerhouse Films' Indicator Series next month !

The Man on the Roof (1976)

"Police lieutenant Nyman is murdered in his hospital bed and Martin Beck and his colleagues have another murder to solve." (IMDb)

Watched this another Martin Beck film, this time made in Sweden and directed by Bo Widerberg.

It´s a very, very good movie and Carl-Gustaf Lindstedt is great as Martin Beck.
The finnish 2-dvd comes with fantastic 80-minute documentary. Recommended!

Yesterday I watched Madame X and Portrait in Black, both star Lana Turner. I also watched Imitation of Life (1959 version) over the weekend, also stars Lana Turner. I vaguely remembered Madame X, I saw it once when I was a kid. Never saw Pkrtrait in Black, it was a mediocre movie. I think I've seen Imitation of Life 4-5 times.

The Dirty Dozen (1967)

All time classic from veteran filmmaker Robert Aldrich is well-acted, exciting, engaging, and damn funny too ! [Big Grin]
Just take a look at the names of the cast (and they didn't even care to mention Donald Sutherland on the poster)..
I mean, you just can't go wrong with that, right ?

Three made-for-TV sequels (Next Mission '85, Deadly Mission '87, and Fatal Mission '88) were made two decades later,
with Marvin, Borgnine and Jaeckel reprising their roles for the first one. Borgnine continued to play General Worden in
the following sequels as well, with Savalas returning too, but playing a different character than in the original.

A divorced man falls in love, but somehow he can't get over his ex-wife. This affects his love life in comic ways. Based on Dan Wakefield's novel ,- from imdb

A pretty decent romantic comedy from director Alan J. Pacula which features some great performances from the likes of Burt Reynolds,Jill Clayburgh, Charles Durning and Candice Bergen,also going by IMDb's cast list both Kevin Bacon and John Murray (Bill's brother) make appearances but they must have been real blink and you'll miss em' roles as I spotted neither!

Never really laugh out loud funny but there are amusing moments here and I do like my wintry settings and this had a great one in a sometimes very snowy looking Boston Massachusetts.

Overall a likeable movie and it passed by an 1hr 45 pleasantly enough plus it's another one that i can now cross of my Burt Reynolds to watch list. 7/10.

https://youtu.be/wNo3rmGbLIo - Starting Over (1979) trailer.

A few of Burt's Movies I've yet to see -

Fuzz
Shamus
Semi - Tough
Hustle
The Man Who Loved Women
100 Rifles
Stroker Ace
Best Friends
Sam Whiskey


P.S on another note what a past Starting Over's Charles Durning had he was a WW2 veteran that fought at the Normandy invasion and went on to win a Purple Heart suffering shrapnel wounds from a german mine plus machine gun fire to legs and hips!

The Swimmer (1968)

"Neddy Merrill has been away for most of the Summer. He reappears at a friend's pool. As they talk, someone notices that there are pools spanning the entire valley.
He decided to jog from pool to pool to swim across the whole valley. As he stops in each pool his interactions tell his life story." (IMDb)

Fantastic stuff with awesome performance from Burt Lancaster.
These kind of films make you think and the Grindhouse Releasing blu-ray includes massive extras. Highly recommended!

The Swimmer is an excellent allegorical tale, and Burt Lancaster has never been better. I understand that the movie wasn't a hit when it was first released and is still on the bubble of having a cult. I saw it many years ago, and it made a real impression. I'll second the motion to "unwrap it." [Smile]

Navajo Joe (1966)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061587/

"A Native American warrior called Navajo Joe seeks revenge on a gang of sadistic outlaws who has massacred the people of his tribe." (IMDb)

This was pretty good spaghetti western directed by Sergio Gorbucci and starring Burt Reynolds.
I also enjoyed the cinematography with wide landscapes and Ennio Morricone score always rocks.

The 88 Films blu-ray includes fun 20 minute trivia documentary.

Burt Reynolds as an Indian seems kind of silly--and Burt never spoke highly of the film--but Navajo Joe is well-made fun.

Yeah, Burt was disappointed because he thought the director would be the other Sergio [Smile]
But they said in the documentary that Burt has softened his comments lately.

Loved the scene where Navajo Joe tells the sheriff (of scottish descent) who is native american and who´s not and grabs his star [Cool]

Dolemite (1975)

Ultra low-budget but interesting blaxploitation film starring Rudy Ray Moore.
Bad acting, bad editing, bad karate etc. etc. but lots of fun dialogue here.
The Vinegar Syndrome blu comes with a cool RRM documentary.

On the quiet campus of the remotely-located SouthWestern University, something strange is happening. All of the dogs in the area, once loyal, gentle pets, are now banding together in wild packs and hunting down their former masters. Could the strange transformation have anything to do with the secret government experiements being conducted in the school's physics laboratory? More importantly, can the dogs be stopped before it's too late? - from IMDb.


One of the many mid 70s nature runs amok horrors which star's David McCallum and a very young looking Linda Gray (Dallas) who until I checked the cast list went totally unotticed by me this was pretty good fun overall and i'd say dependent on the different breed of dog used in the numerous attack scenes it would either feel you with fear i.e Rottweiler, Doberman or produce much unintentional laughter i.e Red Setter, English Sheepdog.

Blu Ray from 88 films looks great and perhaps a bit too clear at times as in one scene you can clearly see what no doubt must have been the dog trainer hidden behind a door [Big Grin] ,some good extras here as well including a very informative chat with the director and cast describing the many mishaps (Bites etc) that they endured while working with there canine co - star's.

Yeah good fun! 6.5/10

https://youtu.be/Ff2QXzGyjaI - Dogs trailer (1976).

From the rental cover (pictured above) i've seen Jaws which is an outright classic,Squirm the killer worm flick which was fun,never Seen Grizzly before and also though not mentioned i've never seen the killer dog horror The Pack which came a year later in (77) and starred Joe Don Baker.

Any of you guys ever seen Grizzly (1976) or The Pack (1977) and if so we're they any good?

Grizzly is just OK, nothing special. I remember when I was a teenager, it was the thing everyone was talking about at school. The TV spots ran constantly. Film Ventures International really knew how to sell a film. The history of that company--right down to the CEO's stealing corporate funds and disappearing, never to be seen again--is even more interesting than their films.

Grizzly in fun little horror flick just like William Girdler´s next nature strikes back film Day of the Animals.
The director had potential but sadly died in 1978.

Cheers Crash/Atomik Grizzly is down for a Blu Ray release here in the UK in the next few months so will certainly check it out!

Never seen Day Of The Animals either so maybe look at seeking that one out as well!

The Human Tornado (1976)

"THE HUMAN TORNADO is part of the on-going adventures of Dolemite: a signifying' super-hero.
Dolemite comes to the rescue of Queen Bee, whose primarily black Nightclub is threatened by White Mafia types." (IMDb)

Watched the Dolemite sequel and it was pretty fun low-budget blaxploitation film with lots of nudity, fun one-liners and bad kung-fu.
Starts slowly but gets better along the way. It was nice to see Ernie Hudson here in his second feature film.

What A Way To Go! (1964) with a stellar cast of Shirley MacLaine, **** Van Dyke, Dean Martin, Gene Kelly, Paul Newman, and Robert Mitchum.

We are told the story of a grieving widow, who is convinced that her desire for a simple home life with the man she loves drives her (many) husbands to strive for financial success before dying right after they make it rich. As she unburdens herself to a psychiatrist, she is certain that there's either a curse, or that she's a rich witch.

The film had so much promise that it really should have delivered better. Many of the clearly signposted comic situations fail to materialise, despite MacLaine's best efforts.

Career Bed (1969) is a very sixties sexploitation flick starring Jennifer Welles as Susan, a girl with a very pushy mother (Honey Hunter). Mom's desire is to push her daughter right to super-stardom, and after moving to New York, she is prepared to do anything - and make her daughter do anything - to keep the important men happy and hit the top.

The premise is simple, the acting not great, the dialogue is weak, but somehow, the film draws you in and shows a stark, probably honest image of girls in show biz at the time.
