  • MS .45 - I had not seen this film since renting it on vhs. Not a lot to say other than there isn't much to not like about it.

    • Watched APRIL FOOL'S DAY (1986) for the 1st time. Got to say I was thinking most of the way through that this was one terrible film but then 15 minutes from the end it reveals itself to be quite an inventive little flick. Quite good on balance but don't think it'll work on a rewatch?

      • Night Train to Terror- holy crap, I wish I'd bought the VS blu! caught the movie on Turner Classic Movies & own a couple of copies of the 7" but never listened to it. Not sure why but something turned me off of buying the film but I'll definitely be picking it up soon.

        Straight Time- watching this now & will have to grab the books by Edward Bunker. never found them in the local used bk store..

        • Like Father, Like Son was a surprisingly fun Dudley Moore/Kirk Cameron vehicle with a killer soundtrack.

          Gone Girl, really really good. Wish I hadn't missed it in theaters.

          • SWORD OF JUSTICE (1980), one of Toby Russell's unreleased Rarescope movies. This Taiwanese wuxia flick is a gem and a classic. Dark and atmospheric visuals just enhance the excellent cinematography. One sees a lot of influences from Japanese chanbara in this one. :up:

            • Chandu The Magician
              I. LOVED. This. Extremely entertaining old timey stuff from all the way back in 1932. Bela Lugosi has a death ray (come on, what more do you need) and chews scenery like his very life depended on it. Chandu, who's really an american dude but he was dubbed Chandu by some yogi cats right in the beginning scene, has to stop his nefarious plans or London, Paris and other places are DOOMED! Since the film deals with magic there's lots of cool trickshots on display (Early and primitive stuff but very inventive and cool). The sets are awesome, the damsels in distress are hot, it's well shot and the pace is frantic. A fantastically good time.

              Lugosi with a mouthful of scenery:

                  I saw LIKE FATHER LIKE SON in the theatre...enjoyed it immensely.

                    I'm dying to know how the transfer is. The DVD was pretty excellent.

                      I've not watched the whole thing yet, Mark (it's 1am here and I need to get some shuteye so that I'm ready for work tomorrow), but I'd say that - so far - it's very impressive. (Like you say, the DVD was no slouch anyway.) It's a review copy, and I've got to take some grabs for my review anyway - so I'll post some frames from the transfer in the relevant thread in a day or so, if you like.

                        • ROLLS ROLLS, I LOVE YOU (1982) Dir. Kong Lung

                          I've always enjoyed these battle of wits action comedies from the SBs studios and this was no exception. Funniest scene hands down was Chen Kuan-tai exchanging profanities in English with a gweilo.

                          • RACE FOR THE YANKEE ZEPHYR (David Hemmings, 1981).

                            New Zealand chopper bums Donald Pleasance and Ken Wahl stumble on a sunken treasure plane: helicopters, jetboats and a frankensalvage heli-tank go fast, get blown up, sink, etc. George Peppard is Truman Capote; Lesley Ann Warren is not. Bloodless PG adventure romance with the occasional blink ("Mr. Rape Your Daughter With Assault"), it's scenic goofball action. Pleasance appears to have had a ball, and the dialogue's mostly looped, which helps Ken Wahl's acting. Script by Everett De Roche; boom by Lee Tamahori. Dedicated to three people who died doing boat work for the production. I watched the Ascot Elite German blu-ray (B); it seemed fine, but I gotta admit, I was so hooked on the hijinks onscreen I didn't pay too much attention to AV stuff.

                            • DOKABEN (1977) Dir. Noribumi Suzuki

                              Caught a fan sub version & strictly for fans of the manga or Suzuki completists. It was cool seeing former pro-wrestler cum actress, Mach Fumiake though.

                                I have the same release. Funny little adventure film this one, with some balls out helicopter stunt flying. Also, Pleasense hams it up like never before.

                                And to keep on topic: Hitman: Agent 47 I cannot fathom how a film, made with a budget for mainstream release in 2015, can have this shitty CGI. Horrendous really. An embarrasment to the art of cinema. And the plot and acting isn't especially good either, or to be completely honest almost as awful as the CGI.
