Martians kidnap Santa Claus because there is no one on Mars to deliver gifts to their children. You do wonder how much drugs must have been sniffed to have come up with this plot.
Oh boy, I so got my work cut out for me this weekend, got delivered home today a lovely set of DVDs to enjoy and I truly mean enjoy, some of the best and worst movies in a nice mix, my flatmate didn’t look to pleased but I will make her enjoy the awesomeness of these movies. Damn, I need to find myself a geeky girlfriend soon to enjoy these things with. Any takers?
This one needs no introduction at all I think. Just such an inspiring movie. The biggest-budgeted movie ever produced at Germany’s UFA, Fritz Lang’s gargantuan Metropolis consumed resources that would have yielded upwards of 20 conventional features, more than half the studio’s entire annual production budget. And if it didn’t make a profit at the time — indeed, it nearly bankrupted the studio — the film added an indelible array of images and ideas to cinema, and has endured across the many decades since its release.
And Zsa Zsa Gabor in skimpy outfit Jack, jack, jack…. I just love this movie.
doesn’t sounds so bad in This novel based movie was made for him.
Queen Of Outer space
Surprise me, not sure about this one. The storyline is weak but it’s Cab!
Also remember that I did like this one as a kid but can’t remember that the Son of Kong looked so much like a doofus…
Remembered that I thought Donovan’s
Brain was excellent when I first saw it as a
15 year old, here’s hoping I wasn’t a lousy This purchase is just because of
movie fan back then… :D John Carradine, big fan….
Ok, this is probably my weakest purchase but couldn’t help it when I read the story ‘Olaf and his mother run a boarding house, and a white slavery ring. They also smuggle heroin to keep the addict girls happy, so they do not try and escape. A young couple move into the house, and the evil landlords take a liking to the female. Don’t mess with THIS Dwarf…!’ Am so a sucker f0r proper bad bad bad movies.
Laughed out loud when I found this review:
‘this film is weird, terrible acting, terrible music but lots of happy teddybears. worth watching as it is so odd it’s kinda entertaining.’
Lots of happy teddybears????? anyway,
MY WEEKEND WILL BE GREAT!
Love the old fashioned posters
Had to nag my brother for a long time before he allowed me to watch Escape from New York, he was afraid that I would be too scared and get nightmare and of course tell on mom and dad that he showed me this movie in that case.
No nightmares but do remember being so amazed by Kurt Russells quick-witted hero and so wanted to be like Plisken when I grew up but instead am a normal travel agent worker, not exactly the same but have kept my inner Plisken around 🙂
This film is listed among The 100 Most Enjoyably Bad Movies Ever Made in Golden Raspberry Award founder John Wilson’s book THE OFFICIAL RAZZIE® MOVIE GUIDE
