Ninja nutzoid

Ninja: American WarriorNo discussion of crazy cinema would be complete without a look at the ninja movies of Godfrey Ho, and Ninja: American Warrior is a good example of his work.

        But first, some catch-ups

         
        I haven’t done an ‘update’ post here for a while, about the stuff I’ve been transferring over to the blog; so I thought I’d take care of that before getting stuck into the new Roundtable:

         

         
        I have now transferred and tidied up:

        The Flying Saucer (1950)
        Revolt Of The Zombies (1936)
        The Last Warning (1929)
        The Magic Cloak Of Oz (1914)
        The Patchwork Girl Of Oz (1914)
        The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz (1910)

         
        I have also added two new Et Al. posts: April17, in which the journey through 2007 continues, plus there’s a bunch of random stuff that came out of the tape-box; and Aug17, in which 2007 is finally wrapped up, while I also reveal a shameful growing addiction to the Midday Movie…

          Seeing isn’t believing

           
          There are films that make you laugh, and films that make you cry.

          There are films that make you angry, and others that make you feel good.

          There are films that make you think, and others that are mindless entertainment.

          And then there are those films to which the only reasonable response is a cry of—  “WTF!?”

          So join us as we take a walk on the weird side…

            Top Sensation

            TOP SENSATION
            To call a film “explosive” which stars Edwige Fenech is one thing. To call a film “explosive” which stars Rosalba Neri is another, albeit similar, thing. To call a film “explosive” which opens with Neri flinging dynamite around with all the glee and gesticulating of a silent film actor is a bad pun. To call a film “explosive” which stars both Fenech and Neri and features the aforementioned opening is the come-on of the century.

              Stay a-way!

              They Went That-A-Way & That-A-WaySome movies you can tell are really bad even before watching them. They Went That-A-Way & That-A-Way is one of these movies.

                A real sleeper

                The PersonalsTouching and funny, the independently made comedy-drama The Personals cries out for being released on DVD and Blu-ray.

                  The Devilish Sister of the Jazzy Queen has Been Robbed

                  Or something to that effect. I will eventually et to the Peter Cushing roundtable of now nearly two months ago, but until then…

                  THE SISTER OF URSULA
                  The Sister of Ursula is like watching a Jess Franco film without that director’s flare. Contemplate that one on the Tree of Woe. Sex scenes, the Italian coast, outlandish murders — everything about The Sister of Ursula seems to operate under the directive of “Well, this should be good, but we’re going to mess it up.”
                  JAZZ ON FILM: FILM NOIR
                  Jazz on Film: Film Noir is a five-disc box set collecting together some of the seminal jazz soundtracks from noir cinema from the 1950s, exploring the evolution of the musical style from its presence as a scene in a movie to its integration into the scores themselves.
                  THE RED QUEEN KILLS SEVEN TIME
                  As with his previous film, Miraglia takes the modern setting integral to the spirit of gialli and dresses it up in a bit of old-fashioned Gothic spookiness by, once again, setting a portion of it in a moody Gothic estate full of dark secret passages and dungeon chambers.
                  JEWEL ROBBERY
                  Now that’s the life — where, during a mild bit of cat burglary, you sneak into a lavish hotel room via the window and find Kay Francis in a low-cut evening dress, relaxing languidly across the foot of the bed, waiting for you with a glass of champagne in her hand.
                  DEVIL IN THE BRAIN
                  Sergio Sollima didn’t direct very many films. His career is split fairly evenly between theatrical and televised fare. Devil in the Brain is not what anyone would consider a technically outstanding movie, but it is solid in its craftsmanship.

                    No T-FORCE, that’s for sure

                    Cyber TrackerThe science fiction movie Cyber Tracker is a good looking but otherwise surprisingly lame offering from PM Entertainment.
