A reasonably good and very well known classic science fiction movie.

Though I think the 1981 TV miniseries is better.

Looks good too.

City of Fire - 1979
Henry Fonda, Leslie Neilson, Ava Gardner, Shelley Winters, James Franciscus.

Despite the star studded cast this flick was late to the game and a poor imitation of the disaster movies popular in the ‘70s

Last night we watched:

Fantasia [1940]
<=>"Hear the pictures! See the music!"



An acclaimed animated music video.
=>- Music provided by Leopold Stokowski and the The Philadelphia Orchestra.
=>- Animation provided by Walt Disney and his animation studio.

We were checking our recently acquired blu-ray copy of the film. It passed with flying colors!

Young Victoria. On Netflix.

Historical nonfiction but certainly not a documentary. What do you even call that?
One of those real life love stories you wish everyone had :heart:

Last night we watched:

Attack of the Killer Donuts [2016]
<=>"We've eaten them for years, now it's their turn!"



Really. We did.

It's probably better than you expect...but then you probably expect it to be really horrible.

RiffTrax Live: Manos - The Hands of Fate (2012)
2012! Wow. Seems like yesterday, or five years ago, but 11 years! :) 8O

MST3K and Rifftrax makes Manos so enjoyable.

...

Haha, the movie was made on a bet and was considered the worst film ever made for several decades.


As an adult, the woman that played Susan wrote a book about the making of Manos. I'm still reading it.

Trivia (and you may know this): the actor that played The Master (Tom Neyman) was her real life father. He was an artist, and designed and built the sets, some of the props, and his costume. I think he did the painting of The Master and the dogs. He constructed the staff that Torgo carries around as well. She confirms that Torgo was on "medication" at the time and died at the age of 25 the same year the film was released.

One of my favorite moments is when the highway patrol is addressing the couple in the car, and the woman looks around with the most peeved expression for three or four seconds (maybe longer?) before delivering her line.

You're right, and said correctly. It was considered the worst film for several decades. Then there was Tommy Wiseau and The Room.

I was just watching The Adventures of Superman and Clark Kent asks a dog, his name is Corky, what he had to say?
(Closeup of the Dog)
Dog: "ARF!" (long pause) (still long pause) "ARF!"
Based on the timing of those barks, my first thought was "It's the acting coach for the peeved girl from Manos"

I found the dog's timing more amusing than my thought about it.

Glorious.

A man trying to flee memories of the woman he loved finds himself trapped in a rest areas' men's room, where an ancient god speaking out of a gloryhole in a stall tells him he must "satisfy" said god's physical form in order to save the universe from an even greater ancient deity. It isn't what he thinks. Nor is the lead character who the movie viewer thinks he is.
Very good, horror/comedy of the Lovecraftian cosmic horror tradition.
By the way, this is one of my Father's Day presents.

Argento's Dracula.

Prime candidate for Mystery Science Theater 3000. Rutger Hauer (Van Helsing), and Thomas Kretschmann (Dracula) seriously must have needed the cash to be in this stinker.

Argento's had his hits, but he's had a whole lot of misses, too.
