The Maltese Bippy (1969) - This was a dumb murder mystery type comedy that was probably a flop when it came out, but had just enough dumb humor to make it watchable.

Rowan and Martin whoever they are are in it. There's some random clever stuff, like how the movie begins with the intermission and the ridiculously contrived ending, but it's mostly just not all that good. They meander around this house telling corny jokes, the plot about some missing diamonds is silly. There are some cute girls but they aren't showcased very well. This style of humor with all the little wisecracks was apparently a huge hit on tv but doesn't translate to the big screen all that well. They need that laugh track. Julie Newmar is in it and looks okay but you expect something a little more memorable from Catwoman. She's kind of wasted, playing it more or less straight.

A guy lives in a mansion he just bought and has to deal with his weird Hungarian neighbors who may or may not be werewolves. I won't even get into it it's just silly.

2.5 /5 

It was okay and even funny in places, but it definitely has that depressing misfire feel

Now we separate those of us who were born before 1968 from those who were born after 1973. For Rowan (Dan) and Martin (Dick) had the hottest TV show on TV, "Rowan and Martin's Laugh-in," during that time. So hot, that Richard Nixon would come on the program, say: "Sock it to me!" and be elected president of the United States. That John Wayne would come on and recite poetry, such as:

"The sky is blue.
The grass is green.
Get off your duffs!
And join the Marines!
I thank you."

Though, it is surprising that two comics who could well on TV, would fail at films. For, if one thinks this was a misfire, then watch their comedic western "Once Upon a Horse" from 1958, before they became big on TV. I guess it just shows how different TV is from films. For success in one does not, for the most part, indicate success in the other.

MONKEY KINGDOM: Disneynature's 2015 offering follows the adventures of a troop of monkeys living in a ruins in Sri Lanka. Entertainment, not education, and good on that level. You could learn something by accident. 3/5.

Can't recall ever having seen a stringed instrument with a neck that long. Is that a lute?

Obviously, this film was made for those of us who do not have Trevor's taste or perception, including myself, which is why I am planning on seeing it, when it opens here in the U.S. Though, I do appreciate the questions that Trevor asked, and I'll try to keep them in mind, as I said, when I see it, when it opens here in the U.S.

Of course, I knew about vampires as cops, so I want to thank SCC for bringing my attention to "Wolf cop."

Yet . . .?! This type of film sometimes rubs me the wrong way; for, whereas, the fast buck artists and the knock off artists do it cheaper. poorer. quicker. We most likely will ne'er get a film based on the superior story of Andrew Klavan's "Werewolf Cop," which I have just finished reading. Especially as a sequel to "Wolf cop" is coming out in 2016. No, if you want to read something that is superior to what you are seeing, then read Klavan's "Werewolf Cop," where are your questions will be answered, including that age old question: "Why? In horror film, do we have so many teenagers attacked, while they are engaging in sex?" We'll have more on "Werewolf Cop" in the book reviews sometime later this year, as I have a long list of book reviews to go thru first.

"Greensleeves" and "What Child is This" are the same song.  Maybe everybody else in the world knew this, but I jut figured it out recently.

The film I am looking for is from what I remember a paint-by-the-numbers "bad guy kills hero's family, hero gets revenge on bad guy" style martial arts film. Most details are hazy in my mind, it is just one particular thing I remember:

In the beginning of the film as the Bad Guy™ slaughters the Hero's family there is one scene his henchmen hold down a blonde woman with her bra around her neck as he rapes her - from what I recall the tone of the scene wasn't horrific but more of a "they will get you for this". I believe the film is set in the US and the blonde woman is the family's babysitter, the family might have been Asian. The hero might be a young boy who somehow survives murders and then grows up to take revenge, but on that point I am far from certain.

I saw the film on television somewhere around the mid 90's, so I'm guessing it is an 80's movie. English language.

Definitely not Clockwork Orange. Think older. B&W.

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
