More of Crushing on sexy Sixties British actress Margaret Lee

Was wondering what to post until I saw Irv O. Neil’s post  Crushing on sexy Sixties British actress Margaret Lee… .. See excerpt below:

I have the late-middle-age equivalent of a schoolboy crush on pretty and perky British actress Margaret Lee. Sometimes she’s blonde, or sometimes she’s a redhead, as you see in the pic below. She starred in many a 1960s Eurospy and sword & sandal movie. I collect and watch her old films when I can find them, such as SAMSON AND THE SEA BEASTS which I found at Sinister Cinema here. I initially found out about her in a book called Film Fatales: Women in Espionage Films and Television 1962-1973, by Tim Lisanti and Louis Paul, available on Amazon here.

Here are a couple of pix from the Samson movie which I snapped of Margaret from my tv screen. She was just tossed to the floor by a villain, but you can see the feisty gleam of defiance in her eyes.

I don’t know if that was her real voice or some other actress’s dubbing, but in some films she sounds a little like Audrey Hepburn. Which is extra-sexy coming out of Margaret’s voluptuous body.

So without further ado, enjoy her:

Blindspot 2017 – it’s Hammer time

I see quite a lot of the movie bloggers are having this blindspot thing going about movies they should have seen but never had time so I started thinking about movies where I had a blindspot and just missed out on. It’s quite a lot… but.. *flashbulb*

I realised I had loads of Hammer horror I’ve missed out on so my Blindspot 2017 these are my  9 picks, skipped 3 months that I will review and I’m so looking forward to seeing them. Oki I will be cheating with Vampire lovers but it was ages ago and needs to be rewatched.

Ingrid Pitt, here I come (hey pervos, not in that way).

Indiana Jones or how I couldn’t stay on track for one post

Was going to start on a post on how awesome Indiana Jones is even in czech. Now don’t get me wrong,  nothing against the Czech but the problem is with me and not knowing the language yet. So I go to classes which is fine but to be honest I love learning by watching movies I know. So I watch movies I know by heart in English in the dubbed language and I do tend to get some new words out of it.

Anyway was watching the 1st Indy movie and damn it’s still brilliant even dubbed. But had to find something nice for the post so went searching. 

A lot of nice stuff but I found the greatest thing in this clip from Terry Gilliam which has nothing to do with Indy but all about filmmaking and the difference between Kubrick and Spielberg.  And I love it, we should have more movies asking questions than just making us feel good.

Terry Gilliam criticizes Spielberg and Schindler’…:

Guestblog: IPC (Isaacs Picture Conclusions)

Another movie blog for you to visit, IPC has an nice and honest feel to his reviews, I trust him almost all the times (opinions are always different).

In his own words:
A few years ago I went to see the new Star Trek. The next Monday I came in to work and was instant messaging my friend on our new work-deployed instant message system (no profanities, etc) and he asked how I liked the movie. I told him it was so good he needed to go see it immediately and dress real nice, including wearing a top hat and maybe even a monocle. “In fact” I said, “It’s so good you need to wear four top hats.”

Later I went to see Piranha 3D and we wanted to talk about it but, if you’ve seen it, the subject matter is not exactly work friendly so I set up a website on iWeb and we railed on shitty movies and talked a lot about boobs. Eventually iWeb went away so I migrated over to WordPress and here we are today.

NUDE NUNS WITH BIG GUNS (2010) TWO TOP HATS

nunsguns

Before we get too excited, one way or another, about this movie based on its title, let me post that this isn’t anywhere nearly as taboo as the risque premise presented to us. Yes there are a lot of semi-attractive, fully naked women in this, some weenuses also get some screen time and there’s lots of killing with CGI blood, but there’s only one “nun” who has any guns and they are just pistols, with the exception of some sort of semi automatic weapon she has at the end. This could be more aptly called, “The Revenge of the Nun Who Sheds Her Outfit Frequently” but I suppose that wouldn’t be as alluring to fans of the Nunsploitation genre, now would it?

A QUICKIE WITH MRS. THE IPC: DJANGO UNCHAINED

This new segment is to try and prove to people that I don’t only watch horseshit movies and that I’m not totally insane. LOL 

This is how the conversation went after we finished it:

ME: WOW. That was totally so much better than I thought it was going to be.

MRS. THE IPC: Like totes?

ME: Totes. I thought it was going to be a pretentious, high brow, mother fucker from looking at the trailers.

MRS. THE IPC: Are you going to write about it?

ME: Nah – a lot of other people have and they’ve done much better jobs than I could. I wouldn’t have anything worthwhile to add.

MRS. THE IPC: What would you give it?

ME: Totally a five. I loved it!! Samuel L Jackson was a fucking crack up every second he was on screen.

MRS. THE IPC: HA HA HA!! Yes he was!! I loved Jamie Foxx’s ” Blue Boy” outifit.

ME: That was hilarious. We should get one of those for Chris FILMHIPSTER for Christmas!!

MRS. THE IPC: I’m sure his wife would love that!

ME: Totes!

ZOMBIE STRIPPERS (2008) – THREE TOP HATS
Since there hasn’t been anything new to get out and watch, I pulled a random movie from our Ottoman (that is filled with DVDs) and took it in over the week. At first I wasn’t going to give this any Top Hats and wait for the viewer to read, watch and comment, but then I figured that’s not the way I do things, so I gave it the median range score and will do two reviews, hopefully short ones, one good and  one bad. I mean, in the end, I say to you “I liked this movie”, but it is so filled with problems that it is hard to tell if they did them on purpose or if they cared so less that it didn’t make any difference and they just went with it to finish it up and try and make a “cult classic”. Then again, I didn’t want to watch it again with the director’s commentary to get his thoughts (because twice is enough), so I can’t be the ultimate judge of this thing, so, here we go. AND – to note – this is a movie called ZOMBIE STRIPPERS so – you’re expectations have to be set accordingly.

Guestblog: Written in blood

Been a lover of horror movies since I first saw Frankenstein on the small screen, my first subscription of a magazine was Fangoria, a superb horror mag with all the news about what was happening in the horror genre.

Nowadays if I need some reviews or hints on what to watch, I go to the web and Written in Blood blog was an great choice when I first stumbled upon it, great reviews and interviews. So if you fancy yourself a little blood and chills, go here and enjoy.

In his own words:
As of July 31, 2011 Written in Blood will be just that. It will no longer carry the subtitle ‘A Horror Fan’s Random Ramblings’. This will reflect that I intend to write solely about horror. I am sure there were those of you who got a kick out of my Random Ramblings posts and the one about sending away for new breasts. If you did, I’m glad; but looking back I don’t find them to be in tune with the original idea I had for this blog. Written in Blood is my love letter to horror films. That is why I am constantly trying to improve my writing and to find the right words in the right sequence. Stephen King once said of the novelist Thomas Harris (The Silence of the Lambs) that writing is like  ”writhing on the floor in agonies of frustration”, because, for Harris, “the very act of writing is a kind of torment”. I don’t find the act of writing to be a torment, but I understand what King means. Like Harris, I want to put together the right letters to form the right words, sentences and paragraphs to get my point across to my audience. Am I making sense?
