    Charade

    ★★★★½

    Still a fun not-quite-Hitchcock flick and not seeing it for 30 years (back when I was a child) meant I didn't remember all the twists

  • Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion

    Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion

    ★★★★½

    1970’s exploitation cinema reached new heights with the Scorpion series of movies from Japan. The Scorpion series of movies are classic example of revenge movies, of women wronged and chained, who fight back and kill those that used and discarded them. Anyway, those types of movies are right up my alley, there is nothing more satisfying than seeing some obnoxious character get killed horribly by someone he abused earlier. And this film is full of it!

  • Three Giant Men

    Three Giant Men

    ★★★★½

    3 Dev Adam brings us El Santo and Captain America teaming up against the evil Spider-Man. You know that means it's a Turkish unauthorized film back when you could get away with stuff like this and not get your pants sued off! Spider-Man has ridiculous eyebrows and tortures people, but our heroes are up to the task of beating the crap out of him. Filled with lots of serial-inspired fights, 3 Dev Adam is lots of cool action and lots of cool weirdness, making it a winner for anyone who likes fun!
