Excellent cop drama, starring Michael Moriarty, Yaphet Kotto, Tony King, Susan Blakely, William Devane
and Richard Gere in his feature debut (as Billy the pimp, in case you see this and don't recognize him).

Stand-out performances from Kotto and King !

Tense, exciting.. and very good !

I´m gonna put this on my wanted list!

The Hunting Party (1971)

Wow, this was a great and violent western.
Starring Oliver Reed, Gene Hackman, Candice Bergen, Mitch Ryan, Simo Oakland, Ronald Howard and L.Q. Jones.

"The rich and ruthless rancher Brandt Ruger keeps his beautiful young wife Melissa like a part of his property,
subdued to his will. But one day she's kidnapped by the famous outlaw Frank Calder - just to teach him reading, so he tells her.
Calder doesn't know or care who's wife she is. He takes care of her well, and eventually Melissa falls in love with him.
But Ruger feels humiliated. Full of hate, he sets out to kill him - and Melissa too, if necessary.
Together with his friends and the newest technology in guns, which carry 800 yards, he initiates a battue on Calder and his gang." (IMDb)

The cast is fantastic, especially Reed shines.
The guns do some serious damage in this movie, you can see all the wounds.
This is 70s magic. Highly recommended!

Low-budget story of four astronauts in deep space, whose mission is to destroy unstable planets in star systems which are to be colonised. The late Commander Powell is stored in deep freeze, where he is still able to offer advice. As their mission nears completion, they must cope with a runaway alien which resembles a beach-ball, faulty computer systems, and a "smart bomb" who thinks it is God. -- IMDb


Great little film. You can't please everybody though -- my brother rates it as one of the worst films he's ever seen.  -

Thunder and Lightning (1977)

'Cars-ploitation' from the Corman factory starring David Carradine and Kate Jackson (from Charlie's Angels).

Not the best of Corman's 'cars' movies, but good old action fun nonetheless, and ofcourse some
great car chase scenes.

Charles Napier is in it too, and Carradine and Jackson make for a good on-screen couple.

Yeah, i have the Blue Underground dvd of Cannonball as well.
I think it's probably the best of Corman's 'cars' movies, and required viewing for
fans of 70s-style exploitation. [Smile]

Last year i also bought the Ron Howard Action Pack which was released in the Roger Corman Cult Classics Collection
from Shout! Factory. It includes Eat My Dust and Grand Theft Auto.
I have seen them both, but it was a very long time ago.. so i definitely need to watch them again
sometime soon. But i doubt they'll be better than Cannonball or Death Race 2000.

I like "Cannonball," a better, less silly version of "Cannonball Run." If I had to rate the Corman car films, they'd go:
1. Death Race 2000
2. Cannonball
3. Eat My Dust
4. Grand Theft Auto

Crash,

have you seen Thunder And Lightning ?

Since it's not in your top 4, does that mean you rate it lower than the others ?
Because if it's really the worst of the bunch, then i'm really going to enjoy re-visiting
the Ron Howard flicks. [Big Grin]

Almost forgot about Moving Violation, which was also produced by Corman around the same time.
Another great little exploitation flick chock-full of car chases, starring a young and very
pretty Kay Lenz.

It should definitely be at the top of the list ! [Smile]

I had forgotten about Thunder and Lightning! I have seen it and Moving Violation. Thunder and Lightning has David Carradine, always cool, and a rare theatrical film appearance by Kate Jackson. It's pretty routine. I might put it there with Grand Theft Auto in the "good enough" category.

You are right about Moving Violation. Like Thunder and Lightning, it was produced by Corman and his wife under their deal with 20th Century-Fox. It's more violent than all of the New World stuff--except Death Race--and it's a pretty good B-picture. I agree about Kay Lenz. She looks even better in AIP's "Great Scout and Cathouse Thursday" that same year. (That's a really good, underrated film.)

Chato's Land (1972)

Very good revenge western directed by Michael Winner.
This movie includes a great cast: Charles Bronson, Jack Palance, James Whitmore, Simon Oakland,
Ralph Waite, Richard Jordan, Victor French and William Watson.

Some nasty kills, dry wasteland (shot in Spain) and i liked the fact that
while this was just a simple revenge flick, every character had their own personality and way of thinking.

Disco Fever (1978)

This is a fun and obscure dance flick directed by Lamar Card.
Starring Fabian, Casey Kasem, Phoebe Dorin and Susette Carroll.

Cool dance club, nice cars, funky dance beat, lots of beautiful ladies with sexy moves and Cybil´s disco jet! [Smile]

The Plumber (1979)

Not Peter Weir's finest work IMO and a bit of a non-dramatic ending for a psychological thriller.

I am sure this was shot on several locations but some of the university shots were definitely taken at Flinders University in Adelaide where I currently go.

It was tripped out spotting that.

The Phantom Carriage (1921) Took about 20 mins to get going but once it did it was really friggin' eerie and depressing.

One of my 70s favorites. It's really exceptionally creepy--phone calls with the different voices, crying baby...
