THE SWIMMER (1968): Certified weird! "Upon its release, The Swimmer took many critics by surprise. Its unorthodox, episodic texture and surreal humanism challenged preconceived critical notions. If critics were at loss to assess it, mainstream audiences were not. By and large they reacted with outright hostility."-AE

LUCY (2014): "...even the sight of Scarlett Johansson morphing into a black tentacle biocomputer canít compensate for the feeling that youíre using less and less of your cerebral capacity the longer you watch this movie."

POINT BLANK (1967): "...packed with classic style and star power, and has the perfect ratio of arthouse cool to gritty action."

CHARMS (1973): "...shows signs of too many cooks in the kitchen... but ultimately, its largest flaw (and also its charm, get it?) is that it's a product of its time, when artistic amalgamations were encouraged to bring in the Youth Audience... while Charms is not a great film, it can certainly be argued that it is a weird one."-LRH

"The best parts are watching Sly go through the full range of emotions: deadpan, deadpan with raised eyebrow, deadpan with quivering lip. There's also a great sequence where Sly drives his VW Beetle down the interstate for about 20 minutes, staring dramatically through the windshield.."-Joe Bob on A MAN CALLED RAMBO

JOURNEY TO THE WEST (2013): "...constantly surprises with its twists and turns, highlighted by a battle with a fish demon in the harbor of a ramshackle riverside village, a deserted inn thatís been turned into a ghostly pork palace, and a comic sketch involving an 'obedience charm' that turns hilariously homophobic."

HARRY DEAN STANTON: PARTLY FICTION (2013): "...the ratio of insight to folk singing here is unfavorable."

VISITORS (2013): "...the human face is fascinating in its infinite variety and its singular expressiveness, but I confess that, like a normal person, I found this exploration boring."

GARBO: CINEMAíS COOL AND IMMORTAL SPHINX: "Garbo remains pure cinema, an idea created through light, mirrors, and form for the celluloid dreams of her audience, who waxed ecstatic over her face alone."-AE

Another version of Journey to the West!  I have been keeping my eye out for the other 2 or 3 films from the same story that Shaw Brothers made many years ago when they filmed Cave of the Silken Web. 

I am going to hunt this new version down.  Thank you!

    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.
