Posted Last Night at 1000 Misspent Hours and Counting

I always enjoy an all-over-the-map update after one as narrowly focused as last month’s:


Beast from Haunted Cave (1959), in which the bank robbers were ready for anything except a monster…

Dracula (1973), in which I’m not sure how you arrive at the decision to cast a cowboy in decline as frigging Count Dracula, but that’s what Dan Curtis did…

Dune, Part One (2021), in which I’m insisting on that “Part One” precisely because the producers were so determined to downplay it…

Frankenstein (1973), in which Curtis does something even more radical than casting Jack Palance as Dracula: he makes a Frankenstein movie that more or less follows the book!

Halloween: Resurrection (2002), in which the second major timeline of the Halloween franchise reaches an ending even more ignominious than the first one’s…

Superchick (1973), in which she may have a secret identity, but her only superpower is polyamory…


What Have You Done to Solange? (1972), in which I saved the sleaziest for last with regard to my recent giallo binge.




El Santo rules the wasteland-- and also 1000 Misspent Hours and Counting.

I don’t get it

Get SantaThe British family Christmas movie Get Santa might have been passable or even very good had it not heavily aped the worst of American Christmas movies.

A message movie from… Uwe Boll???

Attack On DarfurWhile Attack On Darfur is packaged as an action movie, it’s actually a movie delivering a serious message about the brutality of both armed conflict and genocide.

Lost at sea

The Sea GypsiesThere is little in The Sea Gypsies to differentiate it from the plethora of other mediocre wilderness-oriented family movies of the 1970s.
