Santa Claus conquers the martians (1964)

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.

My movie weekend is sorted

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?

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.

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!

Classic Icons: Vampira

[tweetmeme source="erotixx" only_single=false]600full-vampira (4)Former model Maila Nurmi played the glamour "ghoul" Vampira who weekly wandered through a hallway of mist and cobwebs to greet her weekly viewers of "B" horror movies broadcast at 11:00 PM. Vampira sported a full bust, slim waist (17-inches), tight black dress, long black hair and plenty of bug-eyed viewers.

Some of her on-air antics included talking to Rollo her pet spider; and encouraging her fans to write for epitaphs instead of autographs.

Maybe not the vintage beauties I was gonna go for this week but I just can’t help myself… muhahahaha (btw that’s my evil laugh…)

escape_from_new_yorkHad 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 🙂
