    Movie Hoarders: From VHS to DVD and Beyond!

    ★★

    I feel like a liberal dose of smash cuts and/or jump cuts in the editing room could have whittled this down to a half hour running time, and spared audiences much of the obsessive/compulsive cringe that permeates the production. As a collector that pre-dates Blockbuster Video, Mom and Pop video stores, and even the concept of video rentals themselves (you had to BUY a movie if you wanted it at the outset, and they were rarely cheap), I can relate…

    Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    ★★★★★

    As I sat down to mull over my thoughts on this two hour documentary on the late Gonzo journalist/counterculture god, Hunter Thompson, I was instantly bedeviled by a perturbing question, posed by my own superego, rendered even more critical than usual by hours of self-medication leading up to it.

    Have I done my best to adequately self-medicate prior to this wild spectacle of excess, gunpowder, and hallucinogenic psychobabble I was about to bear witness to?

    Sure, I smoked a pack…

    The Bitch

    Insipid softcore sequel to The Stud (1978), both having been novels written by Jackie Collins. Here, we've got older sister Joan (Tales from the Crypt, Dark Places) reprising her role as Fontaine Khaled, the jet setting owner of a failing discotheque named "Hobo", and a voraciously cockacidal slapper to boot. Watch seductive old Joan pillow talk about rattlesnakes fucking to young uninterested-looking chaps. A poor man's Franco Nero (Antonio Cantafora) tries to fence a spicy-ah meat-ah ball in the form…

    Bare Knuckles

    ★★

    From director Don Edmonds (Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS, Terror on Tour) comes this minor action flick that revolves around Zachary Kane (Robert Viharo), a bounty hunting, punching bag knuckling, filterless cigarette smoking, mustache so bad ass that he breaks up a domestic squabble in the parking lot of a Pizza Hut and slides a mushroom and olive-topped slice from the pie to the lady (Sherry Jackson), who immediately goes home with him and balls him six ways from…

    Let's just say Rolling Stone magazine's movie critics and I have conflicting ideas about what constitutes a "masterpiece".

    Cemetery Man

    ★★★★★

    The perfect combination of art and exploitation, amazing cinematography and atmosphere, Soavi's masterpiece transcends the horror genre, the perfect mix of dark humor, extreme gore, sexuality, and romance. It almost doesn't fit into any category, and herein lies the film's strength. It is championed by Romero-philes and Godard-ites alike. Soavi, who labored as an assistant director/actor in the films of Argento, Bava, Fulci, et al, for years, shows his true mettle with this entry which came at a time when…
