You should check out Malcolm 1986. A little silly but a great movie.

Helen, Razorback is featured prominently in the documentary. Tarantino calls Russell Mulcahy the "poor man's Ridley Scott" for making a stylish film about a giant pig. They inteviewed Mulcahy, and he says that the oroducers kept saying that they were going to make the pig bigger and bigger. ROFL

LOL [Big Grin] Good, looking forward to seeing the doco.

Bernie I put Malcolm in my rental queue. For some reason when I first saw it in your list I thought it was the Mel Gibson film Tim, haha

It's an amazing documentary! Clips were from the usual good stuff like "Mad Max," "Road Games," "Turkey Shoot," and "Patrick" to "Barry McKenzie," "Eliza Fraser," "Mad Dog Morgan," and "Lady Stay Dead" (What the heck is that? An Aussie film that to this day has never been released in the U.S.) And a lot of crazy porn!

Aussies do great art films (Peter Weir's early stuff, in particular, is superb by me), and the exploitation films are unique. Quentin Tarantino makes an outstanding observation in the film that NOBODY films cars like Aussies. I never noticed it before, but he's right. The angles, the editing--perfect. The shots of vehicles flying along in the Mad Max films are not CGI. They are real, and when you see a car do six barrel rolls, you gasp, "My gosh, how many stuntmen did they kill for that shot?" ROFL

I own the Mad Max trilogy, Road Games, Turkey Shoot, Patrick and Razorback.
Excellent stuff and i have to add BMX Bandits and Dead End Dive-In to the list.
I also have a ´79 horror movie Thirst starring Henry Silva and David Hemmings, anyone seen it?
Just bought Breaking Loose which, i hope, will be a good low-budget fun.

I own Malcolm too, i think i´m gonna check it out next.

Lady, Stay Dead was one of the first VHS movies i saw.
My neighbor bought a VHS machine back in the mid-80s and we got to watch some movies from the store.
So, we watched all kinds of stuff and Lady, Stay Dead was one of them.
Starts like a drama and then takes evil turn to exploitation thriller. We were shocked [Cool]
Never seen the movie since. The tape is on sale here every now and then but it´s always too darn expensive.
Get the movie if you can find it!

Alright these Australian films sound awesome, you had me especially at "Mad Dog Morgan", don't know what it is but I'm watching it.

Lomax, Dennis Quaid Movies: “Enemy Mine”, one of my personal favorites of his, he and Louis Gossit are terrific. “Suspect” not bad, “Dreamscape” decent, “Frequency” good. “Flight of the phoenix” not too bad. And surprisingly “Vantage Point”, didn’t expect to like it. But My ultimate Quaid Favorite “Innerspace” takes the taco. Hilarious in my book Kevin McCarthy always good, Martin Short funny and it also stars Vernon Wells.

…. Wendy Schaal ….
Lost my train of thought there for a moment.


Also another good Jimmy Woods one that I liked that others may not agree with “The Hard Way”

“Against All Odds” this one and "Cop" got me into the whole Neo Noir. I never wanted to be a shady character or cop in the 80’s L.A/Miami more in my life, than after having watched these films. Which led me to Roy Scheider 52 Pickup, Still of the Night, Blue Steel.

Speaking of Henry Silva, I just watched what is in my opinion Chuck Norris’s best film. “The Code of Silence” this was a surprise. Having only watched the “Octagon”, “Lone Wolf McQuade”, “Invasion USA” and “Firewalker” I thought that this would be another hammed up semi corny action flick. Instead what I got was a lot of beautiful night shots of Chicago, several great character actors playing some likable parts and Chuck Norris playing a bit more of a human hero. It had it’s moments but this was surprisingly solid in my book. Henry Silva was great as the bad guy too, I’ll have to check out the “Thirst”.

First Forced Vengeance, then Lone Wolf McQuade and The Code of Silence.
Looking for to see it!
