I'm fairly partial, Helen, to the grandfather of all the Amicus anthology films, "Dr. Terror's House of Horror." I know that you like "The House That Dripped Blood." They are all good. I'm not sure how I'd rank them. "Tales that Witness Madness," which I only recently saw for the first time is the least interesting, but it doesn't count because like "The Creeping Flesh," it's a World Film Services (I think a nice way of saying "a class product from scuzzy Tigon") not Amicus, film. [Smile]

Love "The Creeping Flesh," by the way. I have fond memories of reading about the film, which was released in February 1973 in the U.S., and then being delighted that it turned up very shortly thereafter, if memory serves me, fall 1973 on the late, great CBS Late Movie. If you loved horror films, Friday night starting at 11:30 p.m. was the time to see them, and the CBS Late Movie in the U.S. was the place to see them--the Hammer Frankenstein and Dracula films, Dr. Phibes and its sequel, most of the Corman Poe films, "The Thing with Two Heads," trashy biker films where Adam Roarke got higher billing than Bruce Dern and Jack Nicholson... Those were the days!

Sparkle (1976)

"A girl group experiences turmoil after one of their members turns to drugs
and another achieves their desired fame all by herself." (IMDb)

Decent little drama directed by Sam O'Steen
and written by the duo Joel Schumacher/Howard Rosenman.
The film stars Irene Cara, Philip Michael Thomas, stunning Lonette McKee, Dwan Smith,
Mary Alice, Dorian Harewood and cool Tony King as crimelord Satin Struthers.

It was nice to see all the familar faces among the cast
and i liked some of the tunes written by Curtis Mayfield.
Haven´t seen the 2012 remake.

I just had a discussion about Kubrick with another film buff in my office. He said, "You are not going to like this, but I don't like Kurbrick, and I know that you think that he's the greatest director of all time" I asked, "What don't you like?" He said, "I think 2001: A Space Odyssey is overrated." I didn't argue with him (even though I love 2001) and just responded, "What did you think of The Shining?" He said, "I loved it. It's great." "What about Dr. Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange, and Barry Lyndon?" "Oh, those are great movies. I love them." The point was that by the end of the discussion, it was clear that he really liked just about every Kubrick movie except 2001! So much for "not liking Kubrick." LOL

Kubrick was a director for the ages. If you liked The Shining--and who doesn't?--check out his other stuff. I think that you will be suitably impressed. [Smile]

i had barry lyndon recorded in hd, but upgraded the service and it got erased in the process, what i seen of it looked really sharp, i thought i had heard on a documentary that they said every shot in that film was like a painting , or something in praise of the cinematography

GP, you are definitely right about Barry Lyndon. Some may describe it as too slow, but no one can debate that each shot looks like something that could be hanging on the wall of a museum. There's a scene in a huge room lighted entirely by candlelight, without the use of fill lights or spots. You can make out every detail and see the actors' faces clearly. I read an article that Kubrick had to figure out the special equipment and film stock to use to get that shot--and knowing him, he probably did about 50 takes to get it just perfect. It's really something.

I really like Full Metal Jacket too. You pose an excellent question. Anthony Michael Hall and Matthew Modine are actually good, very underrated actors. I don't think that it would have made much difference. Hall would have been good in the part too.

Yeah Dr. Terror's is good too. House That Dripped Blood is perfection to me along with From Beyond The Grave [Smile] I wanna see Tales That Witness Madness!

CBS Late Movie sounds fantastic [Big Grin]

Great times!

I feel the same way. Not a fan of Kubrick. Well, except for the Shining, Barry Lyndon, Dr. Strangelove, Lolita... and so on.

Our Man Flint (1965) starring James Coburn as the debonair agent Derek Flint. Pretty good as spy spoofs go, it's played fairly straight and, as a result, I think I prefer the Dean Martin Matt Helm spoofs a little better, as they don't seem to take themselves as seriously as this one does.

The sequel, In Like Flint (1967), is sitting waiting for me to watch later tonight. As I recall, that's a bit more tongue-in-cheek.

Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine and its made-in-Italy sequel, Dr. Goldfoot and Girl Bombs, were AIP's attempt to do the whole spy-spoof thing in kind of the style of the AIP beach party films. (They originally were going to do Machine as a musical, but they cut out the songs.) Machine was directed by an Oscar winner, Norman Taurog, who did a bunch of Elvis films and the Martin and Lewis films. Although it's just light fluff, and nothing to write home about, Taurog, an old pro, does a really nice job with the slapstick and pacing, and the big San Francisco chase at the end is fantastic. Everyone, especially Vincent Price, appears to be having a darned good time.

The sequel directed by maestro Mario Bava is absolutely terrible, his worst film. Lousy screenplay, lame comedy, Price goes through the motions because it's clear that he knows that it's bad. I recently saw a DVD double bill of these two for $(US)5 in a WalMart cut-out bin, and I almost bought it. I restrained myself because Girl Bombs is so terrible, I'm never going to watch it again, and I've seen Machine a couple of times and have no need to have it in my collection. I saved the five bucks for coffee... [Smile]

I would note that I'm pretty sure that Austin Powers himself, Mike Myers, must be a fan of Dr. Goldfoot. [Smile]

The CBS Late Movie


It was the best, a veritable film school education every night of the week. It had a very memorable theme, credit sequence, and preview of the night's films with CBS's booth announcer at the time, Norman Stevens, always memorably plugging the films.

Here's another one. Note that, surprising for a really pro outfit like CBS, there is a typo: "Medusa" should have only one "s"!


The CBS Late Movie again

Enjoy!

Lots of Bava flicks on Netflix: Black Sabbath; Black Sunday; Kill, Baby...Kill; Lisa and the Devil/House of Exorcism; Knives of the Avenger; Bay of Blood; and Roy Colt and Winchester Jack, are still up for instant streaming, I think.

The original Smokey And The Bandit (1977) was on tv here early this morning.

I always thought Burt Reynolds and Sally Field made a good couple.
The same goes for the Snowman (Jerry Reed) and his trusty companion Fred. [Big Grin]

An incredible amount of highly quotable lines from sheriff Buford T. Justice (Jackie Gleason) add to the fun !

Malibu Hot Summer aka Sizzle Beach USA (shot in the late 70s, released during the 80s)

This was a nice Troma T&A film.
Simple plot, bad acting and lots of nudity.
The cast includes bunch of nobodys (most of them very pretty i must say [Smile] ) and a fun midget.
Kevin Costner co-stars in his first movie.

St. Ives (1976)

This was a very good crime film directed by J. Lee Thompson.
The cast is excellent: Charles Bronson, John Houseman, Jacqueline Bisset, Maximilian Schell,
Harry Guardino, Harris Yulin, D1ck O´Neill and Dana Elcar.
You can also see Robert Englund, Jeff Goldblum and Daniel J. Travanti in small roles.

This movie represented the first of nine teamings of director J. Lee Thompson with Charles Bronson.

The Amazing Howard Hughes (1977)

This was an excellent biopic based on the book by Hughes' business partner Noah Dietrich.
Directed by William A. Graham and starring Tommy Lee Jones, Ed Flanders, James Hampton
and huge supporting cast.
Jones and Flanders are fantastic! Highly recommended!
