Here is a great example of 1960’s Italian muscle-bound gladiator movies starring Mark Forest. Getting past the somewhat cheesy script and the poorly dubbed scenes, you’ll find a well laid out action packed film.
This is a really moronic film, but as it went along within its own context I must admit I was amused. So my warning is to dump it in the first 5 minutes if you don’t like it or you will kill another 40 minutes. As it is even low comedy has a floor and this is in the basement. The humor is that of the burlesque theater and it wouldn’t surprise me if the writers came from that discipline.
Overall, it’s a cute movie to watch, it’s relatable to everyone and there’s so many hilarious jokes and beautiful things to gawk over.
The NY Auto Show is one of the highlights of every Spring. This year was no exception. For me, the pop culture movie/tv concept cars is why I go. Beauty speaks for itself as you will see.
THE RUNAWAYS biopic tells the story of two rock & roll girls, Cherie Currie and Joan Jett, who are introduced by manager/svengali Kim Fowley and become that first major all girl rock & roll band with the girls played their own instruments. This film gives a very good account of how the band started out in small clubs and became huge rock stars in Japan within a year. This climb to the mountaintop was quickly followed by the downfall of singer Cherie Currie, along with the split up of the band caused by the underlying friction between members
Basically this book was in the works for almost 10 years. Martin Fitzpatrick and I started out writing an autobiography that was to be about music, which we were going to call ‘Crimson & Clover’, but we soon realized that we weren’t telling the whole story. It had to be the Roulette Records story. The book was incomplete without that part of the story, but it was not in our best interests to tell the whole story at the time because most of the Roulette people were still alive. I was just uncomfortable about it. A few years went by and the remaining Roulette regulars passed away in December 2005. We felt it was time that we finished the book and felt okay about doing it then. So, we did it and told the whole story and got a deal immediately through Simon & Schuster, which we were surprised about because they do more literary works and very few pop culture kinds of projects.
New Yorkers should feel right at home in Washington DC for numerous reasons ranging from culture, points of interest, fine restaurants, to a first class mass transit system. You really don’t need a car because Washington’s subway, better known as the Metro, can get you to almost anywhere in the Beltway. The trains are clean, the service is frequent, and it only costs $1.35 during off-peak hours.
If you haven’t been there, it is easy to have an erroneous image of North Carolina’s capital, Raleigh. While there are still plenty of downtown mom-and-pop stores, the city is a far cry from the fictitious Mayberry of the 1960s TV classic, “The Andy Griffith Show.”
Tampa is often overlooked by potential Florida vacationers because it lacks Miami’s glitz and is squarely in the shadow of Orlando, an hour drive east, when traffic moves on I-4. That is a shame because Tampa is far more relaxing to visit than the aforementioned Sunshine State neighbors and there’s plenty to see and do here.
I must be getting old, too busy or picky. I’ve only seen 329 films in 2009 (then again, I had a really hard time coming up with 10 worthwhile films). Difficult choice with Best Supporting Actors this year, many interesting performances, especially in smaller films.
