  • Ian, is there a new release of BLOOD TRACKS?

    WATERLOO BRIDGE - this is the 1931 version - was remade (and watered down) about a decade later with Vivien Leigh. Mae Clarke is fucking amazing in this movie, sexy as hell and gives a gutwrenching performance. She's a down on her luck American living in London, forced to prostitute herself to make ends meet. Meets a naive soldier who falls in love with her. James Whale directed this and it's devastating.

    • It's a German disc from CMV Laservision that came out last year.

      I think there's a Scandanavian release coming out soon though, but no details on what cut or extras or language options have come out so far as I have been able to find.
      Rock! Shock! Pop!

        Thanks. I want to see this again, may wait and see what the Scandanavian release shapes up to be.

        • Probably wise. I bought the German release before I found out about the Scandanavian one.

          Would be great if someone could dig up some film elements for the movie. The German one is tape sourced. I'll post some screen caps and a review in the next few days.

          • The Town that dreaded Sundown

            Watched it for the second time tonight while it was airing on Turner Classic Movies. Really fun film,but I am wondering why it hasn't gotten a dvd or blu ray release.

            • Mark Of The Devil - Man oh man does the German Blu-ray look nice. Great movie. Udo is cool in it but Herbert Lom kinda steals the show. He looks a bit like Joe Spinell's character in Starcrash in this movie for some reason. I think it's the hair.

              • A-TEAM movie ....

                FINALLY got round to seeing this one....as a fan of the series in my younger years, I was hesitant about watching this "update"..

                Well, in the end I thought it was well done....enough of the old stuff to keep me happy as well as a newer approach to things...

                HOWEVER...the FALLING TANK scene almost ruined it for me....I wonder WHY did they put it in?...the rest of the film was enjoyable, the acting was good, the cameos were fun... but this scene took me out of it...

                • I enjoyed that movie too, the falling tank was ridiculous but I think going in that my expectations were so low that I was relieved to find that only part of the movie was that ridiculous instead of the whole thing. It turned out to be quite a bit better than I figured it would be.

                  • ANTHROPOPHAGUS - Rube tourists on a Greek takeout run...This gets all kinds of grief but I dig it, still quite tense final third for me after multiple viewings. The only weak spot is Giombini's score and even that has its moments.

                      As a kid when A-team was first airing I hated it. Then years later I got into the series when a local UHF channel was showing reruns. Well I was gonna skip the film,but seeing that Jessica Biel was in it,plus my father wanting to see it. Meant I had to rent it. Really enjoyed it,but thought that "The Losers" was a better film that has the similar premise.

                      • Warning Shot (Buzz Kulik, 1967). On a pyscho killer prowler stakeout, David Janssen shoots a night-call doctor: "He pulled a gun. I had to blow him over." The missing gun earns Janssen a manslaughter rap: to prove he's right, it's gonna take more guest-stars than a night of back-to-back "Love, American Style" re-runs. Everybody's part is tailored: Joan Collins gets to say, "Don't just stand there -- need me!", Eleanor Parker flashes thigh, George Sanders is so supercilious it'd take kryptonite to bring him down a notch, and Stephanie Powers screams. Lillian Gish is old. The rolodex casting slightly obscures a lean, honest cop-without-a-badge story: plays like the good tv mystery it is, though it apparently got a theatrical release. Janssen's character rocks the buttermilk: with that kind of character development, you know they were hoping for a series. Contains a swinging jetsetters' apartment complete with pool, psychotropic 67 fashion photo shoot bitchiness with gratuitous slurring, a concusso-vision knuckledusting liplicking asskicking, and a dead dog (sorry, Todd). The psycho killer at the beginning? Never heard from again. James Ellroy could do worse than write an update of this.

                        A good cast is worth repeating, but anyway:

                        David Janssen
                        Ed Begley
                        Keenan Wynn
                        Sam Wanamaker
                        Lillian Gish
                        Stefanie Powers
                        Eleanor Parker
                        George Grizzard
                        George Sanders
                        Steve Allen
                        Carroll O'Connor
                        Joan Collins

                        • Hanna D The Girl from Vondel Park: I tried watching this many, many times over the last year and I got maybe 20 minutes in before I just lost interest. It's your typical Lifetime movie but done through a sleazy Heroin Addiction angle. The pace is fucking nuts, very similar to the brilliant giallo Autopsy but not nearly as good. Scenes are just cut together without any transition and the story goes by lightning fast and around the hour mark it feels like it should've ended because the story has reached that point where it feels like it's at it's end but nope. 30 more minutes of drama, tits, bush, misogyny, and a vial of heroin pulled out of a woman's hairy asshole in closeup.

                          In the realm of Euro Trash it comes barely recommended. It's sleazy and you may want to see it for that, but not sleazy enough to revisit like the many classics.

                          • BETTY BLOWTORCH AND HER AMAZING TRUE LIFE ADVENTURES (2003)

                            Good, but not great doc about the ass-kicking rock band and their journey from the beginnings of the band to the tragic ending.

                            One GREAT part has them roping in VANILLA ICE to record a rap on their CD (he was in the next room of the studio)...footage of him puffing on a HUGE bong and bobbing his head to their song while his eyes are totall out of it is ALMOST worth watching it for alone...a few other movers in the rock/punk world show up too (inc Duff McKagen)..but sadly no NASHVILLE PUSSY even though they were mentioned quite a bit...

                              • Meatballs - much cornier than I remember but still a fun movie, possibly more for nostalgic reasons than anything else. Bill Murray is good in it though, if completely obonxious, and hey, there's the chick from the dirty Alice In Wonderland movie, rad.
