I updated with a new review.  I am trying to get to something like a twice per month update cycle, but am having a difficult time doing so.  The time I used to devote to reviews is now usually occupied with children.  Maybe things will get back on track in six or seven years.

Anyway, the latest:

OK, was that supposed to be a serious movie or a parody of such 'educational films'?

Yeah, but Andrew puts in longer days, and his work demands more travel.  Plus he's probably a better father.

The kids are a little more important than whether or not we get some reviews from you. Priorities, man...

Oh dear god we have another review!!!!!!!!

Actually, speaking of raising kids and balancing them with a B-movie habit, I was wondering: when is the right age to start the kids on the B-movie path?  What movies would come up as standard B-movie viewing for a young lad or lass whose parents dearly wish for their kids to love depravity, silly plots and poor acting as much as they do?

I mean, there are just some important issues that needs to be dealt with as a parent, such as when to have a talk about the birds and the bees, and whether it's the right time to explore the whole Zombie issue or not.  I mean, there's not a handbook for this sort of delicate parenting is there?

Just curious...

Well Dean, I started my daughter off tight away...sadly though, it didn't really stick. The only stuff she'll watch in the B movie realm is Godzilla and King Kong. Aside from that, she has let me down in that department and I don't think I'll have anyone to watch B movies with...

Thanks for hitting that sore spot on me...boo-hoo...oh, the pain...sob...make it stop...

Not till they reach about 5 years old are you able to even watch a movie. After that it depends on what days you have off and if your not to tired to do late night viewings.

If there is one thing you DO learn from this debacle is: never trust your ginecological advice to a lame-ass movie made in the '40s.

Glad to be around.  I usually am watching, but only reach the site later at night.  By then it seems any conversations I want to jump in on have worn out.  It also means I spend a lot of time reading everyone's posts from the day.

My copy came on DVD from Amazon.com.  Quite often my DVD of the movie reviewed came from one of the buy it links at the bottom of the review.

Man, but this is a crazed movie.  It is astounding, even for a cheap exploitation movie from the 40's.

I have to give some thumbs up on this quote from Andrew:

"Check this out, because here is the gist: some random guy walks in off the street, says "yes" to all the right questions, squeezes a fresh batch of baby batter, then the doctor fills a turkey baster and makes Cathy pregnant. Presto! The perfect family! "

Do you make up these kinds of sayings, or did the Marines have a hand in on this? It's positively revolting, and I'm sure that's what you were going for.

Gleening from my own personal experience, I'd say that the best way to get kids interested in B-movies isn't to try getting them involved in your hobbies in hopes of building a bond via a shared interest, but rather to screw them up as best you can.

Consider the kinds of people who make these movies, particularly Ed Wood. More often than not, the directors of bad movies tend to be quirky, eccentric, and, well, pretty screwie.

Crush their self esteem, make their lives miserable, and they'll be be looking for escapism in any form available in no time.

Of course, the principal here is pretty tricky, & may not nesessarily lead to a healthy interest in unhealthy entertainment, IE, it could turn them on to alcohol, drugs, crime, etc., so you might not want to give them a hard time about being parked in front of the idiot box all the time, because that way, you'll always know where they are & what they're doing.

Frankly, if I had kids, I'd be hoping they take up an interest in collecting rare barbed wire rather than B-Movies.
