Kiss Me Monster (1969)

I Saw a film! As I've pointed out elsewhere, I'm a bit of a sucker for these stylish “psychedelic” spy spoofs, especially if they star some of these "Italian" (in this case Parisian and Argentinian) beauties doing strip-tease and getting into karate fights, albeit both poorly. Jesus Franco, who directed this silly, cult mess, kinda…

Blood Bath (1966)

My friends I'm a sucker for a good beatnik picture. And this ain't it. Starring , I'll get to it . . . This particular old British mess has so much going for it. It has Trelane from the old Star Trek series, and as you may remember, he was winning. The actor's name is…

The Long Goodbye (1973)

I Saw A Film The Long Goodbye (1973) With Elliot Gould as Phil Marlowe It's played a bit with Gould mumbling and goofing, and there are moments where you will think there's a comedy going on, and granted there's a spirit of damn the torpedoes (Weirdoes and torpedoes and potatoes) in a Chandler book, but…

Corvette Summer (1978)

I saw a film! Corvette Summer ('78) Starring Mark Hammill (fresh off Star Wars success) and an unimaginably adorable Annie Potts. Hammill is a kid into cars. So into cars he even shuns love to maximize his obsession. As a student in a really neat California high school, which includes classmate Danny Bonaduce (still looking…

Heavy Metal (1981)

I saw a film! Animation extravaganza, much of it of the Bakshi (Lord of the Rings) sort that that came out when I was in high school and I never really got a chance to catch it. So yeah it fell through the cracks. The story is actually more of a loosely linked series of…

Truckers and their Trucks . . .

I saw a film! Convoy ('78) Starring Kris Kristofferson and Ali McGraw and Ernie Borg9 Also, with Burt Young! Who is one of those guys you see all the time in the old movies from Chinatown to Serpico to Rocky and all the way up to last year's Natasha Lyonne project Russian Doll. He's always…
