DISASTROUS DOUBLE FEATURE: “The Glass House” (1972) & “Butterfly” (1982)

  Oh, dear. As my long-time readers know, I have a Netflix queue that defies both imagination and logic. You know how Netflix pops up with suggestions for you to watch? I think I’ve managed to break that function. I … Continue reading

MINI MOVIE REVIEW: “Hundra” (1983)

  I’ve never been a big fan of the sword-and-sandal flicks, whether they are of the old Conan variety or even the new-fangled Scorpion King or 300 or Prince of Persia variety.   I have seen a number of them but … Continue reading

MINI MOVIE REVIEW: “Disco Godfather” (1979)

  Oh Lord above, it’s a Blaxploitation flick from 1979.  The flares are bigger, the bling is blingy-er, and the sweet ladies are sweeter than Sweet Momma Stringbean in Crow T. Robot’s seminal script for Chocolate Jones and the Temple … Continue reading

MOVIE MINI-REVIEW: “Neither the Sea nor the Sand” (aka “The Exorcism of Hugh”, 1972)

This flick was made from the book of the same name written by Gordon Honeycombe, proving once again that everyone has a novel lurking in them (be it good or bad — The Twilight series is proof of this).  Anna … Continue reading

DISASTROUS DOUBLE FEATURE: “Dr. X” (1932) / “Return of Dr. X” (1939)

In 1932, movies weren’t exactly, shall we say, under as many censorship rules as they are today.  There wasn’t a rating system, the Hayes Code wasn’t in effect yet, and so long as the flick didn’t show anything that you … Continue reading

“The Snorkel” (1958)

The Snorkel is another early Hammer film of the thriller variety, starring Peter van Eyck as Paul Decker.  Much like a Columbo episode, we learn that Pete is the murderer first thing.  His method is clever:  he murders his wife by … Continue reading

“Ivan the Terrible, Part II” (1945, released in 1958)

Well, I tell you what, it’s a good thing that this part of the movie recaps the first one in a “last time, on Ivan the Terrible …” style.  After all, it wasn’t actually released to the public until 1958, … Continue reading
