-but the Will Smith version-with its cgi cookie cutter vampire/zombies...no way! I'll watch Moses vs. vampires anyday! This is classic Heston sci-fi-along with SOYLENT GREEN!

The Will Smith version was lacking balls. I read they actually made hand-made f/x for the creatures but didn't use it for whatever reason. Lame.
Omega Man is cool by default because of the time it was made. It's a Tarantino fave, so you got your approval right there  Wink
Count me in as another who will watch the Heston version over the Smith version any day.

The thing with cgi- computer animated cartoons loose the human element. Computer grapics can get as real as they want-but I know its bulls**t. With Ray Harryhausen's effects-or Willis O'Brein etc....theirs a human element behind it. Not with cgi. Gimme the fx of The THING (1982) or even cheap s**t like RETURN OF THE ALIENS DEADLY SPAWN (1981). The zombies in the 1968 NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD are infintly more scary that the computer zombies of the Will Smith s**t fest.

THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY (1981): A family moves into a home with a creature in the basement who pops out every now and then to kill someone. Silly gore, atrocious dubbing, mediocre scares. 2/5.

UNIVERSAL SOLDIER: DAY OF RECKONING (2012): A man watches as his family is killed, then dedicates his life to tracking down the killer despite having lost all memory of his past life. Surprising sequel plays more like a horror/suspense movie than the expected action flick. Many fans of the franchise disliked the change in tone, but it works as a fairly entertaining standalone b-movie. 3/5.

The Omega Man is one of my all-time faves. Is it a B-movie cult classic? Yes of course and I love every freakin moment of it. Anthony Zerbe and Heston as hammy as they can be, and I admit I like hammy scenery chewing actors (Heston, Shatner, even Price fits that bill). I like Price's Last Man on Earth, in which Price is surprisingly low-key, too but not as much as I like The Omega Man. OM is filled with great one-liners, the kind one expects from well 80s action films. I really think it's a shade ahead of its time yet is stil very reflective of the 1970s too. I hated Smith's film but I too kind of liked the Asylum I Am Omega (I didn't expect anything particularly good in that case). In fact, I'd rank that one above Smith's film.

"Death Wish" (1974)

Small | Large


Legendary tough guy Charles Bronson stars in his most iconic role as Paul Kersey, a mild mannered New York architect who turns pistol-packin' vigilante after his wife and daughter are victimized by muggers. Compared to its sequels, which quickly devolved into by-the-numbers action-movie self parodies, "Death Wish" is more of a gritty crime drama, set in a New York City that was a lot darker and scarier than it is today. Still gripping even after all these years.

Useless trivia, watch for a young Jeff Goldblum as one of the punks who attacks Kersey's family, and Christopher "Nigel Tufnel" Guest as an NYPD patrolman.

Hybrid (1997) - in a post-apocalyptic future, some soldiers make their way to an abandoned genetic engineering research facility and spend the rest of the movie getting chased around by a guy in a rather silly looking rubber suit. It's a Fred Olen Ray movie so everything is about as cheesy as you'd expect. Highlights include the Landmaster from Damnation Alley making an appearance at the beginning of the movie, as well as a shower scene with Brinke Stevens and JJ North. JJ gives us another nice sex scene a bit later on too. Eh, it may not have have edge-of-your-seat suspense, but at least it's got something  Thumbup 3.25/5.

Just some quick thoughts on some recent viewings...

Looking For Jackie (2009): not a bad little coming of age film but one will no doubt be disappointed as the DVD cover for this has Jackie Chan plastered all over it and he's only briefly in the film although he remains a main focus of our lead character, a teenage boy seeking acceptance, throughout. The film's story as I said isn't half bad really and our lead meets several interesting characters along his journey. Unfortunately just as we get to like a lot of these characters, they pretty much just up and disappear from the film.



This cover is so very...misleading.

Time Kid (2003): a kid's cartoon level take on H.G. Wells The Time Machine. It actually has some fun and surprisingly thoughtful moments here and there but is for the most part otherwise forgettable. Still if I was still a kid, I'd bet I love this and would hope for a continued cartoon series.

A Doll's House (1973): caught this on TV and found it quite hard to endure. It's just so slow-moving and tedious going about its business and it ultimately feels like the final conclusion seems rather anticlimactic and forgettable. It is pushing the message that many women pre-women's rights were regarded as little more than possessions by their husbands but it goes about it in a rather heavy handed way IMO. I just found this to be insufferably dull and so little of anything ever really happens with regards to its drama here. A good cast but they couldn't make this interesting for me. Yeah for me, this should have been titled "A Dull's House".

One Night in the Tropics (1940): been on an Abbott and Costello kick lately and have quite enjoyed working my way through their films. This one was a very pleasant surprise for me as it's not essentially an out and out Abbott and Costello film. Honestly though, I really ended up loving this romantic comedy and it now ranks as one of my personal faves. Love this kind of movie and I have to admit, I did get a kick out of one of the leading characters having the same name as our current Prime Minister. This one has some great songs  and has a lively upbeat feel and A & C do get to perform some memorable routines. Just great fun all the way around.

Creepozoids (1987) - pretty much exactly the same movie as Hybrid which I watched the night before. A group of people in a post-apocalyptic future go to an abandoned building and get chased around by a guy in a rubber suit. They also climb through a whole lot of ventilation ducts. There are some giant rats (maybe 2' long) in this, and they attack our characters Hobgoblins-style with the actors holding them up to themselves lol. It's directed by David DeCoteau and is every bit as cheesy as you'd expect. The "climax" drags on forever and is really boring. We do get Linnea Quigley in a shower scene at least. It held enough '80s charm to keep me watching. Actually I think I've watched this 3 or 4 times now. 3/5.

THE MONSTER MAKER (1944): A mad scientist injects a concert pianist with an acromegaly virus (!) to pressure the virtuoso's daughter to marry him. Dull at first, but the ELEPHANT MAN-style makeup and an inexplicable gorilla salvage some small amount of entertainment value in the late reels. 2/5.

     RIO BRAVO (1958)
Howard Hawks, John Wayne, Dean Martin, Angie Dickinson, and Ricky Nelson gave us one of the best of the Duke's final cycle of films.

     A long film, but never dull, great performances throughout, well worth it.

Seven Below (2012) - some young people get in a car crash and a guy takes them to his house - the house where a kid killed his family 100 years earlier. It's not long before they're seeing the ghosts of the previous inhabitants. Yawn. I can't imagine how they could have made the story any more predictable, the characters aren't the type I could care about, and the whole thing is pretty slow moving. It's hard to generate any suspense when I'm completely unconcerned with the welfare of the characters. The big reveal at the end is anything but interesting. 2.5/5

The Bat (1959) - Agnes Moorehead stars as a novelist who's moved into a mansion for the summer, to work on her latest book. But there's a mysterious killer on the loose, the Bat, and he's apparently looking for one millions dollars which was stolen from a bank and is perhaps hidden in the house. Vincent Price also co-stars as a doctor who would seem to be our main suspect, or is he? This was fun. The characters were entertaining, the plot kept me guessing, a pretty good movie overall. 3.75/5.
