Panic (1976) - I fell asleep three evenings in a row trying to watch this. By the time I finally finished it up last night I couldn't remember what the subplots were about TeddyR Anyhow some scientists create a monster that looks like a guy in a Halloween mask with matching rubber gloves. He shambles around and kills a few people. The police try to track him down. At one point he's attacking the police captain but the other cops burst in and start shooting. Monster goes shambling off. In the next scene they're looking at a map trying to predict where he will strike next. Um, why didn't you idiots just follow him? He was only going about 1 mile per hour. I'm afraid that when a movie puts me sound asleep three times I can't really recommend it; 2/5.

The Man from Planet X (1951) - an old favorite of mine. An alien comes to earth in his space capsule and some scientists and a reporter make contact with him out on the foggy moors. At first he seems friendly but then the evil scientist makes an enemy out of him. Will humanity survive?!?!  I like the atmosphere and the characters in this one. The alien is pretty cool looking too in that really retro early '50s way. 4/5.

Pardonnez-moi s'il vous plaît: il est trop amusant de jouer avec le troll.  

 TeddyR TeddyR TeddyR Thumbup

If I have to tell you how much that stretched my limited French, well......  TeddyR

My high school friends who took French (I took Afrikaans) always used to amuse themselves by giving me the rudest things to say in French and then stood back as I took verbal abuse from their French teacher.  Buggedout TeddyR

I just remembered one of the things I was told to say: "Baise moi!" - I thought it was a compliment to the very pretty French teacher until she started yelling at me.  Buggedout Buggedout

In the Mouth of Madness - If you ignore its (allegedly) trying to emulate Lovecraft, its a good movie, albeit (contrary to my 18-year-old self's thoughts in '02) never scary. The character scenes are very natural though. Maybe 4/5.

I also the very good Night Skies last night (skies). I figured I'd prefer watching it before the tiredness set it. Didn't watch it quite early enough.

This place which was a landmark near Pretoria's Church Square since the late 1950s and which I started frequenting in 1987 when I came to Pretoria - the family that owned it virtually adopted me and even after I moved out of the area, I would still go there on weekends and help out.

Sad to see it close: a part of me got torn away this year.  Bluesad

From the minds and shaky handheld cameras that brought you The Blair Witch Project, comes a fresh, original, unique take on found footage of a group of goofy young people screaming and running, trapped in a cabin in the woods by a mysterious assailant who seems superhuman in speed and strength and stealth.

Fiends, queens and tentacled beings, I give you... EXISTS.

There used to be a hole-in-the-wall type of Doner kebab / Turkish grocery store in our town called 'Fruit Basket' (translated). Mind you, we have a few gyros and kebab places but none matched the quality, portions and prices from Fruit Basket. This summer the original owned (most likely) made room for younger relatives who are now running the place. Gone are the groceries, they turned it into a small "fast food" type of sit in eatery aiming at a younger crowd.
The portions got much smaller while they increased the prices. The food turned from fresh and delicious to bland. They don't add tzatziki anymore unless you ask, and then charge it extra.
The original place will be missed by many.

I really like Louis Armstrong too. Honestly I like a lot of 40s-50s music too (some rockabilly, some doo-wop, classic rock 'n' roll, some folk music too), some from films even (I liked Sinatra, Crosby, and Martin too). Still looking at it, the bands I named above are those I do tend to enjoy listening to the most on a personal level.

I guess I'll be spending more time inside in a related note.

Actually they're still doing disaster and dystopian sci-fi flicks which I feel definitely gained popularity late 60s, early 70s but really one could argue it was done way back in the 30s with Deluge and Things To Come. Actually a lot of 1950s-1970s drive-in fare also recalls the shock films of the 1930s in some ways. Actually you could argue there are some examples in almost every decade since the 30s except maybe the 40s especially when you throw in alien invasion films. Still I think it was at its most popular late 60s, early 70s. Everything old becomes new again it seems.

The poking fun at themselves in film may well have started with the Hope and Crosby Road films or Abbott and Costello, I'm not sure. Hmm if there was no Buster Keaton, would there have been Jackie Chan? Interesting stuff to think about, perhaps a tad off topic though. Back to when the bad movie "cult" following began...probably when people could gather together and watch bad movies in an enjoyable way - maybe drive-ins, home video, late night movies on tv with horror hosts or without...

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.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
