    Invasion of the Mindbenders

    ★½

    Sassy high school kids just want to Rock and Roll all over the place and be all crazy! Those darn adults are stealing all the fun by shutting down the student radio station to install magical mind control computers. Violence ensues!

    The uptight Principal is none other than David Vincent (Roy Thinnes), trying hard to fit in at his new job after years of running from aliens.

    It's lightweight Canadian entertainment with shaky production values and some over the top…

    Obi-Wan Kenobi

    Episode one and two:

    Ok, I'm down with it so far. Better written than most of the existing TV Star Wars.

    The virtual stages make it feel huge and tiny at the same time.

    Continues the recent juvenilizing trend. You've enjoyed Baby Yoda, now it's Baby Leia and Luke!

    Let's have some more! I'll rate it when all of them are out.

    ★★★★

    Low budget SF that does it right.

    The chunky 70s aesthetic was well executed, it's a universe I want to see more of. Special effects beyond the space sequences are minimal but effective, good use of colour grading.

    The real strength here is the solid character work and action filled story, great tension.

    Watchable and recommended.

    Film #92 of 2019.

    A total mess but WHAT a mess!

    This was a famously troubled production behind the scenes, with old pal Lucio Fulci leaving the production leaving Bruno Mattei to finish up.

    Get ready for Entertainment Italian Style as nonstop crazy shit flies at you every few minutes. Colourful, bloody and action packed with stunts galore.

    I was really digging this nonsense, top notch stuff.

    Film #206 of 2022.
