I do wonder why Dr. Phibes Rises Again wasn't included in this box set..

I haven't seen The Haunted Palace either, but i think my personal favorite has to be Masque Of The Red Death.

Reportedly, the set will include both Witchfinder General as well as its alternate version The Conqueror Worm.

Just when i thought i'd seen it all, comes along :

 -

The Other Side Of The Underneath (1972)

I wasn't familiar with UK filmmaking duo Jane Arden and Jack Bond, but this certainly made an impression !

Often compared to the early works of Fernando Arrabal and Alejandro Jodorowsky, this is chock-full of
shocking, provocative, and surreal imagery. Not much of a linear storyline, but more performance-art
caught on film, this is certainly not for everyone's taste. Only for those who like El Topo, The Holy Mountain,
Viva La Muerte, I Will Walk Like A Crazy Horse, and who are willing to venture into the darkest corners
of experimental filmmaking !

The British Film Institute released two more Arden / Bond dvd's and blu-rays : Separation (1968) and Anti-Clock (1980).

Yesterday i watched this on the MGM Movie Channel :

 -

Harry In Your Pocket (1973)

Kinda middle-of-the-road, and doesn't really know what kind of movie it wants to be.
(maybe deliberately.. who knows)

Nevertheless good performances all round, and great 70's atmosphere.

Worth a look !

I haven't seen any of those Johnny, Let us know what they are like. Herostratus sounds really disturbing. I liked the look of the trailers, especially Privilege. [Smile]

Watched Joe Kidd (1972) last night.
Right now im reading the Marc Eliot book "American Rebel - The Life of Clint Eastwood" and watching every Clint film i can get.
This was 11th Eastwood film ive watched during the last month or so and while its one of his lesser-known features, its still pretty good western.

I think Joe Kidd atomik is about the only Eastwood movie I've yet to see,tell a lie I've not seen white hunter black heart,I've caught the end of Joe Kidd on terrestrial television before but never watched it all the way though.

I just looked on IMDb it says he directed(uncredited appearance as well) a film in 73 called breezy starring Kay lenz,that's one I've never come across before.

I know it's not 70s but I purchased tightrope on blu ray the other month,I'd say that's an underatted Eastwood flick.

Too bad that we lost the disaster films thread during the Spam Wars.
Anyway, i watched two classic disaster films produced by Irwin Allen; The Poseidon Adventure (1972) and The Towering Inferno (1974). I loved them both.
I remember seeing The Towering Inferno as a kid but that was ages ago. The f/x still looks amazing and its damn exciting stuff from the beginning to end.
They both have a fantastic cast and i enjoyed watching the documentaries from both films. Highly recommended!

i watched the ultimate directors cut of the warriors (1979) which adds nothing new to the awesome theatrical edition except some comic
book inserts and a voice over from director walter hill.

 -

i always loved the theatrical version intro where it cuts straight to the wonder wheel all lit up at night and then the music score kicks in, much prefered it to the tv version where the warriors meet up on the boardwalk pre credits

 -

and much prefer it to this ultimate dirctors cut with the comic book intro (below)- http://youtu.be/DqmAHGPRaYU


 -

as much as the comic book voice over intro adds nothing new i think the most annoying and jarring insert comes when the warriors come up out of the subway and are face to face with the baseball furies,it cuts straight from the action in such a way as to kill what was originally one of the most tense scenes in the movie dead.

i purchased this new ultimate director's cut of the warriors on blu ray knowing what i was getting and the picture and sound quality are a big step up (especially the pq) but i must admit i am so pleased i've kept my much superior theatrical dvd version to sit on the shelf along side it.

great to have you back helen!
