I thought I would get slammed for saying this. Glad you agree Helen. The first one is a pretty great movie but this one is just plagued with bad acting, bad story and having the little girl (with the 200 IQ) in it was pathetic.

I think good directors know that more suspense = a better film so not seeing the alien that much is better than seeing aliens all over the place with millions of bullets flying all over the shop. Perhaps in Jaws it was unintentional but not seeing the shark much = more suspense which resulted in a better movie. You kinda have to refrain from giving the audience what they want cos once they get it they don't want it. For this movie they decided to do Alien on steroids and thought this would be grounds for a better film. I know it was a big hit but for me this movie fails miserably compared with the original (like most sequels I guess).

I always feel that Aliens dialogue in particular, is emblematic of the time in which it was made. Cameron loves his machismo and militaristic fetishism, but it's been copied so many times it just seems dated now. They're supposed to be elite marines, but they come across as a bunch of sloppy cowboys.

"She heard alien and she thought they meant illegal alien!"

Yeah Cameron, because hundreds of years in the future 'Hispanic' as a minority will really be a thing in the continental US.

Having said that; dated dialogue and bull**** machismo aside, it's still an entertaining action movie. It doesn't really live up to the hype though. But if it was viewed away from the 'stone-cold-classic' rhetoric, I think most people would enjoy it.

Ooh, sexy Italian comedy you have there, aTomiK.. love it ! [Smile]

I got myself these very cool German imports :

 -

The Counselor (1973) directed by Alberto De Martino

 -

Day Of The Cobra (1980) directed by Enzo G Castellari

 -

Bloody Payroll (1976) directed by Mario Caiano

 -

Chopper Squad (1975) directed by Sergio Martino

 -

Like Rabid Dogs (1975) directed by Mario Imperoli
(not to be confused with Mario Bava's Kidnapped aka Rabid Dogs)

 -

Short Night Of Glass Dolls (1971) directed by Aldo Lado

This is the brand new Camera Obscura 2-disc set, which comes with two commentaries (with optional English subtitles),
and a recently recorded 98 minute long Aldo Lado interview.. wow !

 -

Delirium (1972) directed by Renato Polselli

This is the German 2-disc set, limited to 1000 copies (and completely out-of-print), which has no less than
4 (radically different) versions of the movie, plus commentary and 30 more minutes of deleted footage !

With at least 4 versions floating around it's hard to tell which one is considered to be the original.
The Anchor Bay dvd (which was later re-issued through Blue Underground) actually does have 2 versions as well.
With the Italian version running well over 100 minutes i think it's fair to assume it's the most complete version.

The movie itself.. well.. it's sleazy as hell.. That i can tell ! [Big Grin]

I have the Anchor Bay version of Delirium, a completely nutty Polselli film like The Reincarnation of Isabel, and I'd always assumed that it was the longest uncut version. Sleazy doesn't even begin to describe Polselli's stuff. The films are way over the top, and Rita Calderoni is something else. [Smile]

Even though i'm approaching 40, i still seem to have a soft spot for teen- / coming-of-age movies.

In the past three or four years we've had The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, The Art Of Getting By,
It's Kind Of A Funny Story, and of course The Way Way Back.. And today i've added this to my collection :

 -

Paper Towns (2015)

I don't know a whole lot about this one, but the trailer makes it look pretty decent.

Got myself a few new fridge magnets and also picked up a few dvd's/blu rays,with some of the fridge magnets I've been stripping of the magnet and sticking them to some of the sides of my dvd/blu ray shelfing (below)


 -

So far i've got - Rambo 2,twilight zone - the movie,so fine,escape from new york,the gauntlet and an american werewolf in london fridge magnets stuck to this shelf . (by the way the soft toys aren't mine)

 -

Picked up on DVD at a really good price the chuck Norris tripple feature,got it mostly for - the hitman as I already own forced vengeance,hellbound I've seen but remember very little so looking forward to checking that out also.

Alone with her a voyeuristic thriller starring tom Hank's son Colin,got this for under 2 UK pounds,watched it quite some time back and think I remember it being decent,also in a 2 for 10 pounds deal I picked up - cold in July and - the guest on blu ray.


I also like coming of age flicks,i think that - paper towns looks pretty decent johnny.

Nah, my still-to-watch pile keeps growing and growing.. I always do check them out though, for a couple of minutes or so,
to see what the menus look like, what's actually on the disc, and to get an overall impression of the quality..

I rarely buy movies from the 1990's, but i think this one fits in perfectly with stuff like Ticks (1993)
and Night Of The Scarecrow (1995). [Smile]

When you get around to watching mosquito johnny if you get chance you'll have to let us know what it is like.

Picked up a really cheap DVD copy of the 1990 Australian drama - the crossing starring russell crowe,never seen this one before so looking forward to checking it out!

Not seen this in a while,they actually had the full movie as an extra on the arrow films blu ray release of - wild geese (1978).

I've seen - commando leopard as well but can't remember what it was like,one things for certain though and that is Lewis Collins must have been a brave man to work with Klaus kinski twice,they reckon he was a right nut job on set!
