Daisy Miller (1974)

Pretty dull costume drama this one. It´s based on the 1878 novella of the same title by Henry James.
The film was directed by Peter Bogdanovich and stars Cybill Shepherd and Barry Brown who both did a good job though.

Point Blank (1967)

"After being double-crossed and left for dead, a mysterious man named Walker single-mindedly tries to retrieve the rather inconsequential sum of money that was stolen from him." (IMDb)

This is a very cool and stylish noir directed by John Boorman adapted from the 1963 crime noir pulp novel The Hunter by Donald E. Westlake.

The cast rocks. We have Lee Marvin and Angie ****inson, John Vernon, Keenan Wynn, Carroll O´Connor and James Sikking.
L.A. and San Francisco look awesome and then there´s the Alcatraz. I also loved O´Connors house which nowadays is owned by Drew Barrymore.

This is supercool late 60s no nonsense crime awesomeness!

Point Blank, directed by the horribly underrated John Boorman, is also a favorite of mine. It's so tough--Lee Marvin was never better in his great career--and as you said, is supercool, stylish, and awesome. (John Vernon is terrific in an early villain role.) That opening scene alone is one of the most memorable ever in a movie--and definitely the most memorable use of Foley-effect footfalls. [Smile]

Bedside Headmaster (1972)

"The young headmaster of a boy's boarding school has decided that due to the virility of his young charges, they are a sort of national treasure.
He believes that his school should become co-educational as soon as possible. In order to raise funds for the changeover,
the boys stay behind during their summer vacation and temporarily convert the school into a love hotel." (IMDb)

This was pretty lame danish sex comedy with too few fun jokes and not enough skin.
But you can definitely see where the ideas for those classic 80s sex comedies come from [Smile]

Torso (1973)

"A string of appalling lust murders shocks the University of Perugia as a sadistic serial killer strangles to death beautiful college girls with a red and black scarf." (IMDb)

Good but rather typical giallo/slasher from Sergio Martino.
Lots of beautiful ladies and few decent kills in this one but it´s not among the best in it´s genre.

The full movie may not rank as high as Martino's previous Giallo outings.. Individual scenes however, such as the hippie love-in
and subsequent scenes of one of the girls wandering off in to the woods, are still stunningly beautiful and extremely well crafted.

I've always like Torso. The end with a disabled Suzy Kendall trapped in the house with the killer is extremely well done.

Slaughterhouse-Five (1972)

This was a good anti-war/sci fi film based on Kurt Vonnegut's novel of the same name.
Billy Pilgrim (Michael Sacks) unstuck in time: prisoner of war, firebombing of Dresden, crazy family years and life on Tralfamadore with Hollywood starlet Montana Wildhack (fabulous Valerie Perrine).
It´s a wild ride but if you´re open minded, check it out!

The Incredible Melting Man (1977)

"An astronaut is transformed into a murderous gelatinous mass after returning from an ill-fated space voyage." (IMDb)

Entertaining low-budget horror comedy from writer-director William Sachs.
The Rick Baker sfx look surprisingly good and while the film can be slow at times, i loved the action burst during the last 15 minutes.

The Incredible Melting Man is a fun film experience. It plays like a 1950s sci-fi film, except with a little nudity, gore, and Baker's gloppy make-up F/X. ("Look! It's his ear!) I know that the folks who made it say that it was always intended as a comedy. I'm not so sure.

But anyway, if you want to have a fun evening, pair it with the other throwback sci-fi film Without Warning, which I think is even more entertaining. [Smile]

I´m with you that it wasn´t necessary meant to be comedy, it just turned out so unintentionally funny that it´s better say it´s what they wanted [Big Grin]

The Last Picture Show (1971)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067328/

"In 1951, a group of high schoolers come of age in a bleak, isolated, atrophied West Texas town that is slowly dying, both culturally and economically." (IMDb)

Loved this one. It´s a breakthrough film for Peter Bogdanovich and includes a fantastic cast with great performances.
It was shot in black and white which was a clever choice.

The dvd came with a nice documentary and i need to check out the sequel Texasville next.

Barbarella (1968)

 -

This is one of those cult classics that has always eluded me. So believe it or not, this was actually the first time I was able to watch this movie all the way through from start to finish. Have only seen bits and pieces of it up to this point.

I like Barbarella. It's colorful, easy on the eyes, and dumb fun. Take an art film director like Roger Vadim and give him exploitation elements, and you often get something weirdly entertaining--like Barbarella.

Logan´s Run (1976)

"An idyllic sci-fi future has one major drawback: life must end at the age of 30." (IMDb)

Finally got to watch this 70s sci-fi hit and while i loved the Oscar-winning sfx and settings, the story and few characters (the robot called "Box" and Peter Ustinov) were not so great.
Too bad that they decided to make this PG rated because í would have loved to see more Loveshop and Jenny Agutter scenes [Wink]

Cheerleaders Beach Party (1978)

"Four amorous cheerleaders set out to save their ailing college football team by huddling up on the beach with the rival team...and scoring." (IMDb)

This was a rather dull cheerleader film written by b-movie veteran Chuck Vincent.
You just can´t go very far with amateur filmmaking, cast of unknows and lousy jokes. Yeah, you can see some skin but not nearly enough! [Big Grin]

The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958)

"When a princess is shrunken by an evil wizard, Sinbad must undertake a quest to an island of monsters to cure her and prevent a war." (IMDb)

This was the first of three Sinbad feature films from Columbia Pictures and i really enjoyed watching it.

The film features great Ray Harryhausen stop-motion sfx (giant cyclops, giant bird, dragon & his trademark skeletons) and nice score, composed by Bernard Herrmann.
Kerwin Mathews did fine in the leading role and Kathryn Grant sure looked lovely.

The Indicator release includes cool extramaterial so i highly recommend it.

Operazione paura aka Kill, Baby, Kill (1966)

"An 19th century European village is haunted by the ghost of a murderous little girl."

This was a pretty lame Mario Bava mystery/horror film IMO.
Very predictable plot and slow pace but also typical Bava greatness including cool settings, nice camera angles and glorious lighting.

The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (1973) and Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977).

Yeah, watched the last two Columbia Pictures Sinbad movies and while they are nice adventure films, i think that the first one was the best of the bunch.

Harryhausen rocks and both include ultra hot female leads: Caroline Munro and Jane Seymour.

Arabian Adventure (1979)

"An evil magician seeks to gain power by obtaining a magic rose. A peasant boy and a prince join forces to stop him." (IMDb)

This was a pretty lame family adventure film from Kevin Connor and Brian Hayles.
Starring Christopher Lee, Oliver Tobias, Emma Samms, Milo O´Shea and Puneet Sire.

Yeah, Arabian Adventure is indeed a pretty lame pairing of Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. The rear projection/matte work is pretty shoddy, and I doubt that kids would find any of it interesting.

The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957)

"When Scott Carey begins to shrink because of exposure to a combination of radiation and insecticide, medical science is powerless to help him." (IMDb)

This is a good and fun sci-fi feature directed by Jack Arnold.
Great sfx considering it was made in the 50s. The Arrow blu includes nice Arnold documentary.

Starcrash (1978)

"An outlaw smuggler and her alien companion are recruited by the Emperor of the Galaxy to rescue his son and destroy a secret weapon by the evil Count Zarth Arn." (IMDb)

Superfun and goofy italian Star Wars etc. rip-off from Luigi Cozzi.
Starring Marjoe Gortner, sexy Caroline Munro, Christopher Plummer, Joe Spinell and David Hasselhoff in his second feature film.

Fast pace, fun performances, cheap sfx and Harryhausen influenced stop motion madness. Cool stuff!

Here´s a great comment from Plummer:
"How can you play the Emperor Of The Universe? What a wonderful part to play. It puts God in a very dicey moment, doesn't it? He's very insecure, God, when the Emperor’s around" [Big Grin]

Yeah, Starcrash certainly gives you entertainment value. ROFL I hope Christopher Plummer got paid well.
