    HoopTober5.0 - film #6

    This is how a B movie should be made. It's not perfect, it drags along in several spots, but there was a lot to love about it. That's the nature of a good B movie, it may have problems, but the fun or funny moments shine enough for you to forget the problems.

Often I can respect the film for any number of reasons, but I don't always find it so engrossing or entertaining as to make me want to revisit it. Some of the films that are considered classic, can just be downright boring. This is not one of those films.
