Oh, I've been looking for this one for a while. This is the crazy one with Klaus Kinski and Florinda Balkan that I read about in Video Watchdog. I'm going to have to look harder. [Smile]

I just bought the Classic Ultimate Sci-Fi Collection from Universal, which contains 10 sci-fi/horror movies, mostly from the '50s but one '40s and one '60s movie thrown in. I watched the Land Unknown a few nights ago. It's one of my favorite "expedition to a land where dinosaurs are still alive" movies. This movie concerns a Naval journey to a Mesozoic Era land beneath sea level in a crater near Antarctica. The SFX are not that bad, considering the t-rex is an actor standing inside an oversized costume (at least 20-25 feet tall). It still does the trick well, though. The elasmosaurus is extremely impressive for 1950s standards (at least I thought so). Check it out for yourselves:

 -

According to an interview with the movie's director (published in Fangoria #73, May 1988), Virgil W. Vogel, The Land Unknown was going to be a big-budget sci-fi movie from Universal. It was supposed to be filmed in color with an all-star cast and Cinemascope. Vogel recalled that Cary Grant's name was mentioned as a possibility. The SFX department went overbudget on building the elasmosaurus, so the color and the name stars had to go. Vogel, however, was able to convince the powers-that-be to let him keep the Cinemascope.

While Jock Mahoney may not be ideal leading man material, I thought he did fine as the rugged hero. It's Henry Brandon, though, who does the best job acting-wise as a member of a previous expedition who's been living in a cave and surviving on his own.

Just watched Two Minute Warning (1976)

"A psychotic sniper plans a massive killing spree in a Los Angeles football stadium
during a major championship game. The police, led by Captain Peter Holly (Charlton Heston)
and SWAT commander Sergeant Button (John Cassavetes), learn of the plot and rush to the scene.
Still, they may be too late, as an all-star cast finds itself lined up
in the sights of a gun-toting madman." (IMDb)

This was an entertaining thriller / disaster movie with a cool cast.
Builds up the tension nicely and after the two minute warning all hell breaks loose.
Our b-movie friend Andy Sidaris stars as "TV Director", and is essentially playing himself.
Check out also b-action star Robert Ginty in his first feature film role (about 5 seconds) as sports merchandise salesman.

Yet another Harry Alan Towers film for you, that "House of a 1000 Dolls." It's the only time that I can recall Price ever worked for the shlockmeister. Peter Cushing never did!

I was way overdue in getting on this noir classic, and it did NOT dissapoint! A new favourite. Great performances, razor sharp dialogue, great noir vibe, great story. I would put it right up there with genre heavyweights like The Big Sleep and other such esteemed titles.

Dana Andrews is a forgotten star of the golden age, but that's a shame. The guy is cooler than a polarbear's nutsack, and a great actor. I love his comeback, when Cliffton Webb tauntingly ask "haven't you ever been in love?" to which Andrews replies "well, a dame from Washington Heights once got a fox fur outta me!" what a kickass 40's style comeback! Andrews rules! Gene Tierny is magnetic as the mysterious Laura, Vincent Price is great as the smarmy Fianceé, and Cliffton Webb is rude, crude and hilarious as Laura's old admirer.

If you like the genre (actually film noir is more a style than a genre) the you should most def check this out!

Because of the handsome JayLee's writeup, I watched this today........and it was great! I loved every minute of it. Jay you are right about every star in your description. It was crazy for me to see Vincent Price younger and not the horror man I remember. Gene Tierney was beautiful and alluring for sure, and yes Dana Andrews was "cooler then a polarbear's nutsack!" He calls women "dames" haha

I really loved watching this classic and the great Biography extras that were on the DVD. [Smile] Thanks Jay!

Straying into another forum, but just watched FX: Murder By Illusion. Bryan Brown and Bryan Dehnnehy star in a film about a special effects artist tricked into apparently murdering a gangster, and then effecting revenge after they kill his girlfirend.

I liked the first F/X a bunch but didn't really find the sequel to be all that great.

Watched Freaky Friday (1976) yesterday.

It was a fun movie with a good cast.
Especially Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster rocked!
Haven´t seen the 2003 remake.

Harris smokes, Foster buys booze (when she´s in Harris´ body) and all those sex references...
I bet Disney wont do this kind of stuff anymore. (tell me if i´m wrong)
Gotta love the 70s!

"It Came From Beneath the Sea"--a Ray Harryhausen movie where the producers could only afford five tentacles on that octopus. [Smile]

I know. It sounds so stupid, but I think that it's true. The octopus only has five tentacles. Harryhausen later said that it was to make the stop-motion animation easier, kind of like how Mickey Mouse only hase four fingers on each hand.

Not watched them yet but just ordered this:

 -

I love the James coburn "Flint" movies, and these are right up there with the best of the early 60s Bond spoofs.

When they arrive, I'll let you know just how good they are.... [Smile]
