Re: Movies: What did You Watch Last Night?

Watched 1977's The Car last night.
I've not seen this one since I was what, seven or eight!
Still a lot of fun.

Then I followed it up (and finished this afternoon)
Halloween III: Season of the Witch. It's a decent flick.

Re: Movies: What did You Watch Last Night?



I've seen this movie twice with the second viewing only last night. Didn't realize how dream-like it was in its quality. The narrative is odd and disjointed, but definitely memorable.

As I child, having only viewed snippets, it was quite the creepy film with the clean, bright n white appearance of the masuleum, the silver-shiny chrome death-spheres, lanky, free-flowing tall man and the sinister Jawas.

Sniffing about a bit and realized Don Coscarelli is the man behind this film and one other very impressionable movie of my youth, The Beastmaster! Okay, his legacy is secured in my filmography fan book.

My favorite scene in this eclectic film

Fun film. I think I love the seventies.

Classic. Great series. Love the car (Hemi-Cuda I believe) and the ridiculous shotgun(though that may have been in #2).

Ah, you've seen them! I knew there was something I liked about you, Tornado.
The car is sweet and apparently included because Don Coscarelli knew of a guy who drove one in high school.

The choice of vehicles for Phantasm had its roots back in Don's high school days in the early 1970S. A schoolmate drove a brilliant, Sassy Grass Green, Pistol Grip 4speed 'Cuda with a white interior. The 'Cuda made a lasting impression on Don Coscarelli, and when it came time to decide what car to use for his movie, he knew what it had to be.
I need to partake of the other entries in the Phantasm series as well as attempt a second viewing of Bubba Ho-Tep.




Next Halloween-inspired viewing was Train to Busan. I discovered this South Korean film thanks to my Reddit browsing. Loved the premise of quickly-infected and herky-jerky fast zombies (who create their own literal wave of undead bodies similar to stuff seen in World War Z) on a train.

The film was okay. The character types were interesting: young couple with expecting child, two elderly ladies, a work-busy dad with his tiny daughter, and the Carter 'no-one-else-but-me-matters' Burke-ish older business man/villain.

There is a unique and creative, memorable sequence involving tunnels and the dark.

Big Bubba Ho-Tep fan.

There were rumors of a sequel, Bubba Nosferatu.

Great info the Cuda. I love to know trivia like that.

I had Phantasm on VHS for a long while and it was among the tapes that I donated to a friend's father who was going down the Mississippi.

Yeah, that was rough. As a fan of the books and the show, I'm glad they kept it as close to the comic as they did. That said, I loved the episode but probably won't watch it again for a while - at least not the first half.

WORST. PALADIN. EVER.

Yeah I know what you mean. It is one episode that I have no plans of ever watching again.

Also I just realized that I posted this in the wrong thread. Oops

Great trades with Onacara, Gypsy, SirGalahad, elltrain, generalgina, Concord, Just_a_Bill, LongHeroscaper, janus19390, and the very generous obfuscatedhippo.

Re: Movies: What did You Watch Last Night?

Got home from gaming from 10-6, and my wife and daughters were about 20 minutes into watching Tarzan, so I sat and watched it with them. I had heard it was bad, but man was it bad. Eghads!

It looked like they strung together a bunch of trailers and called it a day. The whole thing was so ridiculous, that it seemed like a it was meant as a mockery.

Verydisappointed, but at least I didn't waste the time or money to see it in the theater.

My friend and I were twelve when it was released and his parents took us to see it in the theater. Action-packed and very dark in subject matter. Quite a cusp of subject matter at that age: death-ready cultists, village massacres, child sacrifice, ear-wormed crazed BDSM-ish freaks, Wertham ocular injury, bird-worshipping bat-gaunts with acidic death-hugs for unwary travelers, and Tanya Roberts. Oh man, what entertainment for boys!

Roberts made a lasting impression on our youth. One of our friends secured a copy of that year's Playboy issue featuring her in all her glory. Dizzying days indeed.

Months before , I had seen The Sword and the Sorcerer which was equally dark and creepy in certain sequences, but nowhere near as entertaining as The Beastmaster to come.

Just a smattering of Eighties swords 'n sorcery films.
What a time to be a kid:
Hawk the Slayer (1980)
Clash of the Titans (1981)
Dragonslayer (1981)
Excalibur (1981)
The Beastmaster (1982)
Conan the Barbarian (1982)
The Sword and the Sorcerer (1982)
Fire and Ice (1983)
Krull (1983)

Re: Movies: What did You Watch Last Night?

I took my daughters to see Dr. Strange today and we all enjoyed it. Similar origins type story but a lot of neat magical elements that certainly add to the Marvel Universe repertoire.
