G.I. Joe the Movie ’87

This is awesome just my luck some Saturday morning cartoon full feature to get the day going. I have homework but thats all I usually do so, and this is what I do so.
Anyways to start I had some of the toys maybe TMNT was more my thing but I mean equally awesome G.I. Joe. I got the shirt I should go put on. I can recall some scenes from this movie but I must have been very young and I probably wouldn’t watch this unless it appeared on the list, but which is surprising cause im all about it. Every boy my age knows G.I. Joe, If i asked my folks they would know. Cultural phenomenon. Just that 80’s feature cartoon hype and see you heroes on the big screen. Right away the into and space titles are great and very synth. Then the G.I. Joe Logo hits the screen. The cobra is song is pretty funny and we all know about armies that represent huge logos. Cobras main ambitions are flying into Statue of Liberty park. Punching out tv news reporters and cameras. The music matches sequences. Its like heavy metal light with some sick animations. Jet packs lasers lots of explosions. Heroic group poses. I like the fireworks effects Its pretty much widescreen. Cobra retreat. So I was two when this came out late to the party. I like the animations Don Johnson.. Sgt Slaughter as .. Sgt Slaughter. Complete opposite than the book im reading but have to make a comparison. Its all about cool suits, masks, heavy firepower. Theres some starwars themes here too the jungle. Similar to the technodrome. The cobra base toy was cool. The cartoon version is pretty high tech. Lots of resources cannons spotlights. That tiny little gate for such a huge base. Fight for a logo and attacking america does seem like a terrorist thing to do. So pick a snake and start recruiting people. Some perks would be jetpacks. Some cons would be crazy boss screaming at you. The background inside the base looks like a heatsink hightech board. World class buffoon lol. I can think of one politician that fits that description. So theyre super villains they all have their own quirks and different outfits. That would be funny, you got the shoes and hat but the beard, you can join. Oh yea lizard dude is sneaking through the fence. Theres a awesome high tech radar room. Sick saw bayonets. The red suits I would pass. Lizard can cut through steel door with his claws like lightsaber. That lizard probably trying to steal something or join cobra. Nice organic spore dust weapon drops those guys. Puts back in pocket. Its like those old sierra dos games: ‘put ladder in pocket.’ His hands burn the alien thing is a face hugger. She has many of em. Lizard lady assassin.
___
Was too busy to finish off the cartoons but here I am June 7 2020. Serpentor and lady assasin are about to fight, the plotline is revealed that the orc lizard assassin lady is burnt into Serpentors memory. She is part of his destiny. When he was created her face was etched into his soul.She is Pythona. In the sea shell is a broadcast energy transmitter tank that Sepentor is to use to cause chaos. Ok so Serpentor has to steal the broadcast energy transmitter from the joes.I guess you turn it on then tanks operate without the use of fuel or energy I guess thats pretty magic. Makes 5g sound weak. Anyways so Serpentor and his team of villains on bikes and vehicles. Destroy everything except the the energy tank. The BET lol. who listens to :”this I command” So in a opposite twist the good guys fire red and the bad guys fire light blue. Unlike starwars. So duke goes from sitting in the BET to retreat to cover me im going for the BET lol. Lasers are still cool. They jump on vehicle and say cheezy little one liners. Like Need a ride, Nah walking’s better for my health as they fly past laser beams everywhere. It reminds me of like some starwars pilot scenes, like ohh buddys in trouble i cant shake him, but then the next joe jumps in and remedies the situation. Duke is the original Joe. He gets scooped up by the Serpentor and bike combo sold separately. One handed hangs on and bites the pin off a grenade with his teeth.. the only way to remove the pin . I think the artwork pretty amazing the fluidity of the piece its action packed. After Duke tosses a grenade in the air intake, blows up the bike. After that brief flight jumps back in the BET and activates the Joes defense missile systems. Those 80’s hair cuts and ski jackets. Theyre like oh the treachery were being attacked from behind! Duke gets ripped outta the seat by Serpentor and a fist fight ensues. Serpentor just has snakes around his neck that he grabs they go hard and he throws em like spears. Classic Cobra commander and the villain female are arguing about orders. Harsh. So Serpentor throws himself at Duke as Duke easily uses his momentum against him and throws him right in the BET dish. Serpentor sits there getting electrocuted a hot minute. Cobra commander call for retreat again. They have a sanctuary in the mountains. Yo joe. So they managed to capture Serpentor.
Had to try to register just for all the forms dont work and error messages what a pissoff. Ok where was I oh yes. Cobra commander was leading his bad guy minions to some place yonder by the mountain pass. The Yo Joe patrol following quickly behind. Actually they engage the cobra remnants. The terrain feature that is the sanctuary, one of the guys comments like is this the twilight zone. Sure is Joe. I like how the joes have one of every ethnic group behind a machine laser gun. Every joe is equal, and the cobras are white animal people aliens with a budget.
All of a sudden some bug suit martial arts bugs crawl out from the terrain and engage the Joes. They got big giant swords and do the tongue cry like some kind of beheading cry. Gi Snow jumps in the ride chasing cobra commander through the brambles. Some hawkman flies up out of the ground and is ran over by the armored vehicle. But the hawkman is strong as has a hook and pull GI Snow outta the drivers seat. Its basically like playing GI joes as a kid. Cobra commander tries to be-friend hawkman but all he gets is a slap to the face. Nemesis something fetch cobra commander lol. Hes always running away cackling. Pythora has the gem lol thats the sought after item. That answers all my questions lol. BAck at the Joe HQ they got some missiles on display.Paper shredder, map of USA. Reel to Reel tapes on the walls. Cocks his weapon at the generals desk lol. Showing up at recruit camp as a basketball player and a ninja. Heres this drain pipe im gonna crawl up it. That looks like a deadly obstacle course. Mines and turrets. Anyways this dog is hilarious it just finds and fetches some dynamite with a clock on it hidden under a blanket. Fetching that dynamite lol. I hope you both get fleas. Makes me chuckle. Just having a rainy day gotta keep getting through more content. Ok Beachhead is training some recruits through some excercises. Here come beach shirt guy. I find thatr shading of everything really well done wish I could draw that shading and line detail. The beach shirt guy, misfired missle rips it off the side of the tank, and hurls it at the target. Thats the best misfire drill ive ever seen, and he toosses the intstructor off the vehicle in the process. Outstanding. Take a knee. Ok ninjas turn. Cant fight eyes open but kicks his ass blindfolded. Finishes off with a sassy wink. Lt falcon in typical officer fashion brings his bl;onde date to the base. Then hes like see these training manuals, whips out his pistol and opes fire, dodges his head missing the ricochet and destroying the training manuals. Thats hilarious. So i wanna be LT Falcon when I become an officer. Thats so funny as he nearly misses Duke messing around, gotta love that shot behind the back. Im doing my duty bruh what are you doing. Im having a date at a military prison. Some corvette model. Yea so LT falcon lets the blonde in with the camera, Im sure the codes to get in are compromised now, but lets watch hilarity unfold. LT Falcon is like im bored nyeah. Duke is like ur on guard duty. Sure enough shes the redheaded cobra villain! Getting accosted by her ‘teammate’. After thats done she reveals she had earring cameras. Cobra has some British members one em said blimey! 100% Facts.
___
Regulation schmegulations. Make like an amoeba and split. Thats a harsh accent lol. Blimey Its a bloomin seamonster. Serpentor is still in the prison center. He throws a pillow from his otherwise solid bed at the laser cage locking him in. Lt Falcon trying to make out with subordinates lol. While on guard duty nice. Dont sweat it he says no one can get to the stockade without enemy bracelet he says.. Gotta be the silliest officer ever. Meanwhile cobra is breaking into the stockade. But they get stopped by the plastic shield momentarily. Hes basically narrating them as they enter. Blast through some concrete.. Not just unlikely its impossible as an explosion goes off and intruders access the prisoner.The most imbecile LT ever. They shoot the alarm connection and buddy does a swan dive with covering fire to start splicing the Joes security system. The Hawkman is theirt tank is virtually immune to laser fire. He just runs up like nothing. The joes are no match for the hawkdude hes just tossin em asides hes like keep splicing. Uses his wind to deflect the cage laser and they just walk out. Pretty much solo LT falcons fault lol. Pythora has some bug mines that cause alotta damage.They run back to the base, the main door blown up no prisoner casualties. Damn hes getting court martial ed lol. Back in the mountains. Theres a flying man-o-war with a cockpit flying bug. The driver pulls some string and a toothy mountain grotto opens up. They fly in and through the other side is a different terrain like a bug lang.Here the captured Joes are chilling in a tooth prison. The jelly lands on the ground in what can be described as alternate universe. This is where the tongue cry behead bug guys with wide swords live and theyre an amry I guess in cahoots with cobra. They release thousands of tick like robot creatures. First thing Serpentor does is take a knee to the new bug overload guy hes got a eye patch and a villain type speeder wheelchair, as opposed to say something proffessor X would ride in. Its a floating green swquid thing abody attachment. Its like those bugs made a red carpet welcome. Gorabulus. Or something like that. It was Gorabulus that created serpentor. Then they got couple bug guys. A skinnier Zangief with a handlebar mustache. And then a colossus similar looking guy with black eyes and red cape. Nice Gorabulus has a new weapon its a organic psychic manipulator. He uses on his own people. The twins and everyone is down with gorabulus. Now he want the BET. At bug land the trial of cobra commander in a clam shell lol. Back at the joe base another trial is going on the court martial of LT Falcon pre hearing, pre trial. Oh hes in trouble now couldnt find a act of merit. Falcon is Dukes half brother so that makes it justifiable and gets a second chance. Drawing shades easier than every eye expression animated multiple times. Anyways LT gets off but he has to go to the slaughterhouse, as for cobra commander, hes always screaming something funny, you have no jurisdiction over me. The cobras talk like swashbucklers. The bug people call themselves civilized. Very heavy metal esque in some scenes. Cobri-la was a happy bug place land. Then ice ruined their culture and that started the rule of the barbarians, (humans) They evolved from 4000 years ago.. Then they show the Cave man banging rocks together to the nasa launch screen with the space shuttle. Which is sacrilege to the Cobri-la.. Thye retreated in the mountain spot top try to reclaim earth later. So they use organics or something. Gorbulus selected cobra commander to raise an army to destroy earth civilization. Cobra commander grew some extra eyes in a lab accident. Team misfit. Their plan is to shoot these rocket spores into orbit that will render organic life forms feebleminded or something. Like that earth and Pythora combo. More like lizard beasts grabbin their faces. The spores wont mature without the BET blasting energy into space.. Well guess im surprised for such an intricate plot, but halfway through the movie get an idea how this might go. At first i was liek how do you make a hour and half movie about GI Joe. I mean its probably not the hardest thing to come up with if you were ever a kid. All the characters have a fair amount of detail. Heres Sgt Slaughter awesome hes the professional drill instructor for GI Joe some kind of alternate jail bootcamp. Is a pro wrestler persona. Your going nowhere space case. Nice the renegades outfit. The guy that spits on scorpions, then the pro footballer with a club. Finally the circus actor. This nice club for LT Falcon. Getting whipped into shape before the finale. Thats me nowadays: you expect me to walk the whole way.. lol. Here comes bug cobra commander. Nice beetle key. With the plan to put the mindless beast in cage backfiring now the Joes are free. Cobra commander lizard can still screech. I though maybe hed be muted but no. After cobra commander got hit with the spores hes willing to help the escaping Joes tells em of a trap. Anyways they end up teaming up for the moment to escape. Nemesis enforcer do work. Spores make him blind but commander is helping him see. Jumping into the river to escape. Serpent i going after the BET. The rocket spores are shooting into space but they still need the BET. Nice slaughterhouse base. Its some wrecked planes and makeshift shacks in the desert. Roadblock thats his name. Terrordrome technodrome. nice. No weapons lets move out. lol thats no way to make friends hehe. Sure enough as theyre discussing the security of the BET the Blackhaired cobra female escapes cackling to herself like a witch. So lemme guess the cobras gonna attack the civilian facility. Meanwhile the Joes are infiltrating the enemy base too. They ride up on the red personal boats toss a black sheet over it. Thats a first cam up job ive seen on cartoon. Sgt Slaughter rides the boat like a thinking man lol. here comes some space capsules. Here Cobra is using resources that arent organic so wouldnt you know it hypocrites. Surprising they didnt see the white and yellow shirts maybe too busy piloting their little individual space pod capsule jetpacks. So the plan is go through the air conditioner ducts, so them working with cobra is against what they declare but its ok cause theyre working to destroy the humans. The baroness is here name, and i thought she had a menacing eastern european accent. Like a bond villain. Again conveniently the Joes and Sgt S overhear the plans.. Theres some familiar looking cobra patrolmen. Maybe its that navy red and black pattern. Oh yea thx Lt Falcon completed all with no weapons. Set a timer for 15mins. Lol the gambling cobras flip the table caught playing cards classic. The googles again flashes the text intruder and alarm in a reflection. Everything is snake themed including what looks to be the microphone. Come in Joe. Seems to me it might be hard to send a message from some enemy equip. the cobras also have nearly the exact same alarm system. Come in GI Joe acknowledge. Wow the most annoying thing every time i backspace I get a horrendous half line of typing text. I wish I could fix that on command. Scroll down seems to fix it but when it occurring pretty irritating. Now a walking mech has disrupted LT falcon comms attempts. He jumps out the seat and smacks the next cobra guy. This the type of officer that fights with a beret and boy scout scarf on. Sleeves always up. The football playe hes like screw im we dont need him, he pistol shoots a tank and two space pods. Sgt Slaughter sorts him out with the teamwork speech. Unfortunately the new improve Falcon is still captured by Serpentor, hes slapping him silly. how many in your force whats your mission.. Slapping him silly: you cant resist forever. Five mins on the clock its been more like two, things really move in these action sequences. Since Serpentor cant get his answers hes gonna have to answer to Nemesis enforcer. Hawkman. Just then the renegades lead by sgt slaughter barge in just in time to rescue LT Falcon. Nice, Nemesis throws a face-hugger squid. Slaugther and him gonna have a one-on-one. So far he aint doing so good. Until Serpentor squeals for help. Help me. He drops Sgt. Slaughter and Lt Falcon can remove the face hugger. Hes still got his shades. No time for rematch remember bomb must hurry. That about sums it up in a hot minute. Nice they really smashed up the terrordrome like complete destruction. Nice speeder bike escape. This I command lol. This looks like they had time to get their forces together for an attempt on the BET so they lock it up and secure it for what looks like a big battle. Knuckle massage. I guess in their plan to sell toys its easy movie to make, brand all the tanks. The cartoon makes the toys happen and the child army makes a fortune. Often imitated not always mega franchise successful. Im sure some of these toys are collectors and expensive. Lots of vehicle scenes for the passenger to get in and out vehicles and pretend blow shit up. Now the general piloting in one of these reverse wing jets. He dogfighting Baroness in a space pod. All of a sudden a bug air fleet opens fire they havea weapon that shoots out tentacle webs that can immobilize vehicles. This is the big moment for Cobri-laians. Chuckles is the guys name with the tropical flower shirt. Now he starts the helicopter by climbing on top and giving it a old fashion push . Chuckles jst rides on top of the chopper shooting his pistol. unfortunately theyre hit with the tentacle weapon and crash land n a building. The mp says Man who ever heard fo being shot down by a salad. Thats pretty funny. Its like organic tentacle growth. Serpentor now is in a cobra style jet similar just darker and redder. He does the tongue-beheading-cry lol. Whoa all of a sudden a giant spiked worm is causing havoc on the battle filed. Theres 2 and theyre crashing through walls for the cobra team of misfit swashbucklers. Ncie on swashbuckler is seen banging the business end of as rifle on the protective BET shell . The other guy has grinder. Finally Nemesis enforcer is fed up hes like move aside nitwits. Wow so he just bends that metal outta place and ready to steal it now. Duke is back for a scene on a GI JOE bike. very tron and 80’s esque. Rectangular headlight. Just rips the cannon off and shoots it towards worm. Serpentors plane lands in a cool sequence and he steps out all like captain morgans till hes gotta duck from incoming fire from the renegades. Theres lots going on the worms are leading the way for colossus dude to drive the BET away. Falcon also has a bazooka and takes aim. Once shot takes out the cobra plane. Serpentor immediately exclaims evacuate the BET. Why is that so funny cobra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la as he shoots the mortar. serpentor a good shot, direct hit on the renegade Joe vehicle. Theres a pipeline and some fire causing a inferno. Nice Duke jumps out to fight Serpentor who had his eyes on Falcon incapacitated in the blaze. Damn, duke gets hit with one of those solid snakes. Calls him arrogant earth scum. He took the snake meant for your heart but his sacrifice will be in vain: this i command. The cheesiest line. Too bad the moth got the BET. They all huddle over Duke as he gets first aid. Promise me youll get your act together. Everyone cries. Here in a sinister turn of events the BET is turned on in the hands of the enemy and globulus is powering up the spores for that human mutation plan. Roadblock and cobra commander walking through a blizzard. They get in a struggle and land on flints party. Cobri-la assault time. Sound the alarm the Joes are attacking. Of course theres a booby trap. They fall right into it. Its a giant plant that eats Joes alive. On the tiv Flint ios like look at cobra commander those spores turning him into a fish slug beast. Finally the joes get the synopsis. Stop the BET before everyone gets turned into fish lizard beasts. Go Joe. Roadblock gets cured unfortunately the genetic mutation that happens to cobra commander is permanent and the medics cant fix him. Whose side would he be on.. Well hes leading the way obviously but Falcon is like forget it hes completely turned to a snake. Nice so one of the renegades notices a water path leading to the swashbucklers and their water bikes. Theyre were going to seal in the cave while the spores turned all the humans to reptiles. Nice well his plane bike gets hit but he sends it crashing into the Joe eating plant. That tentacle gun is the ultimate organic against vehicles. Finally the battle evolves to a fistfight brawl. Joes are advancing on the palace and ready to stop the BET. Some awesome creatures coming outta the ground to defend the BET energizing the spores. essentially giant insects. After some more scattered fighting and being surrounded by bugs thy make it to the palace. Sgt Slaughter bashing em with his rifle. Gi joe fighting spiders. Well they got to the BEt how are they goonna get through Nemesis enforcer and Pythora. Ninja vs Ninja slaughter vs enforcer and Falcon vs Serpentor. Not looking ghoof for either of the fights. Then starting with falcon it turns around. Cobra commander ends up helping falcon for no particular reason. Ninja goes blackout with a bandana as a chose fighting style. Pythora just jumps of the cliff. Nemesis aveneger gets his ass kicked by slaughter now, and as awesome finale Serpentors cape gets stuck in the air exhaust for his jet bike.. classic. Falcon still has to fight Gorabulus which wont be easy, cause hes got that green pod. Hes got a harry potter wand. Whats his name galopagus. snake body hybrid of everything. So inside the green pod is gorabuls slithering snakebody. Falcon stabs him in his already eyepatched eye.As falcon escapes he has a chance to turn off the BET and they have a quick celebration. It seems lost as gorabulus shows em the spores have matured and are being released in space. Falcon decides if he can rev up enough juice he can fry em in space. It works destroying the BET and thew fortress in the process. Sgt slaughter spins around red ninja and they make a human chain for Falcon to grab onto for the quick escape. Total destruction of most of Cobri-la and bugs. Duke is out of the coma. now actual celebration and Falcon and ninja share a kiss. Back to the sparkle effect. Wow that would have been the weekend rental for a while. Took me a while to watch but it was pretty fun. Just alot of artwork people slaved over this project. Its good final product I think. Interested to hear the other review now. First cartoon for the reviews though. Make a hasbro movie to promote the toys and the brand. Alot of things from TMNT too but none as blatant rip off as the technodrome. Teamwork and some motivation to join up and fight the bugs. Feels like it dragged on a bit but ended up watching it all.

Drop Dead Fred ’91

Never heard of this although I might recall someone nicknamed this movie title, that did. Seen at some dnb parties like 2013-2014. Dnb might be hazardous to your health, rip. The fun thing about the 90’s just on the fringe of what I consider really retro, and 90’s seems modern enough to me. I like the appearance of the film in the 90’s not too much filter but just enough for that soft light. Not too much tech and cell phones.
Ok right away this movies seems like a light-hearted comedy, the little kid swears as the first line thats hilarious. Maybe its like one of these look whos talking type of kids comedy. No way Carrie Fisher. The opening intro is all hand drawn child style, pretty cool. Like green over exaggerated monster hands, with wax crayon. 21 years later from what ?/ Oh yea the swearing scene. Oh if 91 is 21 years later that makes 70. get some babysitter crush with the bangs. Some people dressed in ‘business attire’ enter a building. They are dressed in some funny suits for these days. Flower pattern. Lizzy is one of the female characters names shes in love with Charles. In something I could describe as a Elaine dress. They’re at Jaguar, the car place. The building doesn’t have a handi ramp or a button. Looks like she has Chrysler or ford maybe Its gray with darker trim. Can see a Pontiac logo in the reflection. Pontiac being defunct 2010. Legs and heels. Inside the Jag complex is some dark oak with some gold and hunter green trim. Lizzy walks in after she just seen him with the blonde. Go live with Annabella or go away or something. Ok so Charles has been bewitched by Annabella. As the previous blonde interrupts and requires test drive. So just some nuances the sunglasses, the tie. Bus stops vehicles bicycles. As Lizzy pulls up on the test drive. Thats pretty funny still dont know what theyre really talking about. Ok maybe its a Honda or a Toyota thats a bucket. So theyre broken up pretty much it would seem. Looks like New york maybe or some other Downtown. Payphone again I guess would be pretty common. Lol a purse thief with a hammer , dont leave your valuables in the car she didnt even see. This guy with the ciggie now steals her car. OK shes in a court room, lost her car money husband makes it sound kinda funny. Plead insanity. Thats such a funny line. Yo im pleading insanity, not even in a court room. Nice a court stenographer machine thats hilarious. Watched a video still looks difficult to use. Lets see theres a jury. The defendant, bailiff, lawyers. The clock says 1:35. Defendant tossing a apple way up in the air like a jackass. State of Minnesota. Thats ironic with the Minneapolis news. Just seen a wintery city scene, thankfully its spring here . Anyways shes fired, so fresh start no car no where to go walking with the office box. New character, Mickey. Mickeys clothes and hair with the daughter ID card lol. So i guess they know each other from back in the day, Lizzy did something crazy to Mickeys Grandma. Another person mentioned drop dead Fred so hes the character that will come turnt hese peoples lives around. She reminisces. An old lady gardening is shown covered in paint. Imaginary friends. Shaving cat scene lol thats funny but not for the cat lol. They just throw the hair in front of the fan with some sound effects. This Mickey character looks fairly familiar. Same with Lizzy. Outside the building at the fountain. Another lady suit walks up and is like I realize your conflicted. There its Carrie fisher didint recognize you with that hair cut. Shes going off about how pain is your friend and pain makes you conflicted which is good somehow. Maybe for some growth but i think the idea is to avoid pain lol. Lol so pain makes you interesting cause Elvis was very interesting before he passed on. Wow that suitcase with fabric pattern on of those old style packed to the brim. With the loud buckle clips. Oh its her mom. That kitchen and everything . Looks like a bachlor suite from the 90’s witht hat white ceramic appliances, White drawers and counters with natural wood trim. You can see just with the oven hood the minor nuances. Lol. This mother daughter relationship is on the rocks but can tell something comical is going to happen. Oh. That noise points up. wow pink cringe room. Atleast theres not dolls everywhere. But I wanna see this Fred and the mayhem he causes. Some intersting camera angles and they take wide panning shots so far. city scape phone booth. Nice a man-hand crawls outta the pillow and. Well thats it smacks her as a child self. Ok so there is some victorian era dolls i think its tasteful not like in the other movie where theyre everywhere. Ok that weird effect projected onto the screen. Bouncing ball sounds. Ok heres Fred lol, hes the anti adult, adult. Its like the cat in the hat. He starts by killing all the dolls lol. Im grown up. Ew and funny. But its kindof cringe lol. This is pretty hilarious though the dog shit right on the fresh washed carpet. Right on the chair lol. No lets not do bad things to the carpet she protests. Still pretty funny, cant tell the audience for this movie lol the mom is freaking out over the carpet lol gotta love that humor. She calls him by name ok hilarity ensues. Sleeping robes from the 90s are cringe. Hes tossing boogers. Lol. Fred too much shrieking hes a shrieker like dude shut up. But he ends up squashing his head in the fridge and loks like a spitting image of stewie family guy lol. The guy is like a clown lol. Anyways onward with the furniture smashing. Maybe she should marry Fred lol. Hits her in the face with a shovel. Getting charles back. Such a weird plot story so far. nice he got smoked by the firee truck in some cartoon style violence. These flashbacks are hilarious and just trashing the set. Just flailing everything. Like something hilarious about throwing a drawer of cutlery around. Just mischief smashing windows. The Mom and other guy are pretty funny. Whats with the string on here. Those two jump out onto the cop thats hilarious. Oh the sweater falling apart. Oh so she has memories to be herself. Have to get you back with charles lol with a makeover. Shes stunning though but shes dressed like her mom ahaha. Charles looks like a used car salesman. Nice scream lol. He just pops in whenever weith that green suit. So its important to stay young and what. He sticks hes ear in a ear. Nice down at the port. Carrie fisher. Shes lives on a river boat lol. You cant stay here cant go home lol. Ok so ends up staying the night is the imaginary friend real or fake. lol now hes cutting her hair. lol
I never had imaginary friends lol the guy says .looking like bush. River houseboat so strange. So her hair lopsided. Oh buddy carries gpnnna pissed when Lizzy ruins her paddle boat to chase a speed boat lol.
Nice smash all the dials. The lines in thhis movie whats that water doing there, what water.. That water. lol nice so she sunk the boat. Imagine telling your friend that. I have some bad news, i sunk your house. Its like set up for the next awkward joke. I cant hjjelp but just find it so comical the nit wit acting like businessmen its just funny mocking papers and making funny faces. Carrie pretends she can see Fred now pushing the chair out. Omg strangling the air thats priceless. slapping it. Thats funny never seen her like this. Its a treat after starwars. That was probably best scene in the movie so far lol. After the clothing shopping scene, and action. 2 plates of pasta lead the camera into a skyscraper restaurant. Mickey and Lizzy are at the center table, people look overdressed and not really eating. Wonder what that place is. You cut your hair yea corona virus style. Another invisible Fred rules the scene with hilarious comments and faces. Omg her pouring out trhe water all pissed off is also hilarious. Love this actress thats just so funny and awkward.

OK this scene is the funniest. Why did you do that ? I didnt. -Oh yes you did. Even Freds like yeh you did. Could not imagine a funnier first date. Super childish. Shes trowing the food. why did you do that. Im crazy. Food fight. Gets dragged out. Nice a mall food coutrt scene with that baby blue. Theres a classical band playing in the center. Ok i love this movie so funny nows shes having a screaming match with invisible fred about her mother in the middle of the food court. Nice fred is a violinsit, seems like hje likes taking the piss out of everything. The scene shes beating the ol violin player with the purse omg im dying. Mom has to write a check for the smashed violin lol. Violin player all teary eyed lol. Maybe using some of the same extras here. With such a innocent undertones then smash everything. Look an old computer. Time sheets and clock. Doc Ryland hes got clowns as office art lol. Now doc Ryland has to speak with the mother. The leading doc in dealing with imaginary friends. Hes like all talking quiet. The imaginary friend reunion. Ok in the funniest joke the imaginary friend Fred has imaginary friends that Lizzy cant see. All these imaginary friends with their own personas and theyre dressed all outrageous like clowns. Some nice carpeted stairway that wood cut line going up the imaginary hand rail position parallel to wall. Neutralize the part of the brain. lobotomy pills. Just the weirdest characters and the nurse looks mean. Shes like I got black belt and i could snap you in two. Which would be the craziest thing a employed nurse could say. Lizzy looks on stunned. “Conscious or Unconscious all the same to me.” Thats some line. Thats why fred is so funny dressed and looking ridiculous. Nice Mickey gonna save her.
Fred give a passionate speech about comformity and the pills can represent that metaphor. 1st man on the moon paper replica. The character that plays young Lizzy woulda been around 1970 on my math..
Im sure she been in a few films then. Clearly the mom is the issue here. I think I just heard her say i think I love you less or something like that. Well that just doest seem like something you say to your child. He seems more of a fitting part when hes with young Elizabeth, but its so funny with ‘adult’ Elizabeth. Beacuse its so over the top ridiculous and gotta recognize that type of humor probably not alot of prople can pull off. Its mostly annoying but also hilarious and when you laugh its like encouraging them like the class clown and genuinely hilarious. I just noticed the old bug box. If the film is categorized as ‘fantasy’ the box could represent Freds genie lamp. Here in Elizabeth past, NASA juts landed on the moon. Lace on the table. Silver. Wheaties Same green suit. ok that makes sense. Young elizabeth is adorable the scenes they p[ull of the robbery and now the wheaties dirt bowl. Ew. tear it apart to make it better. doom. Hes on the dining table lol pretty funny. Maybe ill just get on my dining tabnle as I write this next bit out. Wasnt expecting that reaction. Ok now the audience gets the back-scene trauma that happened to Lizzy as a child, her mom taped up and trapped her imaginary friend. Even the bf hes like ‘ITs not right’ I guess thats how to traumatize the child. Tape it up with some masking tape. So keep it but if you touch it ill throw it in trash. Ok so now audience has enough to let em have it. He presents the letter. lol. Its good transition between the child and adult version of a character. Those weird effects when she sneezes. The kung fu nurse. Locked out. Something about the slapstickness of running head first into a door or window is hilarious. Nice Mickey with the get-away ride. Gotta say the cityscapes are really nice and nice lighting. Minneapolis art center is where the next scenes are. Or the outside of the building is shown. Omg these outfits lol. Liozzy has some crazy bangs and a fuchsia dress. Fred is wearinga ridiculous 2 toned green green suit with cape and cane. hius orange hair pointed up into a point. Just looks completely outrageous. Lizzy gotr some goth tones going on with the purple black. Its fiting they have a finale all dressed up. Fred just looks completely ridiculous still its hard to not burst out laughing. Nice a classy wine tasting. Feds holding a curtain pole. Just playing tons of pranks. imagine thats your job serving hord d’ouevres dressed as a shirtless toga guy at the art museum. Maybe ill apply for that job next lol . 2 upskirts with some who framed roger rabbit eyes oogling women. Oh what a coincidence. This charles guy a Kurt Russell similar in appearance maybe. Short in the front longer in the back. Oh look Charles just walk in. Hes like your beatiful must have you. Marry and kiss lol. Theres a scratching at the door lol guess who. Yeah grab the frying pan. Lol. Smashed the nurse with the pan. Got caught saying Annabella . Nice well that soured the mood lol even tough it was just getting hilarious. Threes a crowd. Charles smooth talks her. She took the pill. A couple times. Hey Carie fisher again, speed walking with a cigarette lol. She got insurance money for the river boat. Mud pie lol. Some borderline mental issues here lol. Nice Freds in the fridge. Ok so Charles wants to have an affair. Nice imagination fly through. Doll house.Its the dream version of the house. Exaggerated and distorted lines. Now a tree rows. I guess imagination land with some artificial tree. Obstacle course. Hey the 2 characters meet. Its like beetlejuice setting. So nows shes resolved her problems she can go home. They kiss then he vanishes. ok wake up from the floor back to making salad. Charles gets dumped by annabella, hes liek at least i got Lizzy, she dumps salad on him and a booger too lmao. Here comes the mom scene. Had a child to save the marriage. Nice suspenders. Now Fred ghets dropped off on another mischievious kid. nice ending lol. such a strange but suprisingly good movie. It has its moments. Nothing like a slasher just a funny movie before the new HArry potter style movies. Nice 90’s sax to finish it off with the score. I gotta work on the math but that was a nice distraction. Pretty good movie too, I mean some weird parts but not the worse Ive seen.

Night Killer ’90

Ok well after Dennis the Mennace im stoked to be back in the 90’s. Dennis the menace was pretty good. Its May 23 2020 morning. Got this movie on youtube Movies for 1.99 wasnt too bad.
Walking in to the complete unknown in this movie, dont know the director. Who writes up the Youtube Synopsis. Yea as for the Cinnemassacre Its just way more fun to watch the movie then watch the review. That with the pandemic, more virtual friends along with twitch youtube. Me personally havent had negative encouters on the streets at all. People have be friendly, but on high edge.
Dunston checks in was maybe the worst since I started watching and even that wasnt too bad. I have homework piling up but what can I say, Its gonna get done by watching this movie now. Not sure whats gonna end up with this but I like watching movies and writing some commentary on it. Its harder than I iniytially though but I think im getting better. I think its best to write about some impressions on me, in context of entertainment. Also a movie log just like an old friend used to do and carry on his tradition. What else I gotta say reading that ‘The Wars’ has been pretty good, Im just curious to his fate, I cant look away. That it could have been the story of any Canadian unknown soldier of the great war. For fiction it has alot of things to research. I never claimed to be a world war I master, but watching BBC The great War ive seen and heartd some shocking things, not mot mention visited some of these sites. Its been on my mind, a bit anyways. This class ends right away so, is probably the next thing im working on too. But for something completely different now, Night Killer 1990. Yes. 30 years old.

Lol what am i seeing ok its late 80’s dance routine. Im already dying. Already gotta sample that. Ok this lady runs in and stops the ‘class’ . Thats pretty funny imagine I just walked in an stopped the teachers class. Was late cause traffic. The claw in the back of the scene and the music sets the mood. That song and the claw lol. Oh movies is rated R lol. After dennis the menace I dont know what I was expecting aahaha. Ok get a quick look at the killer. He just claws her and set her down in the bathtub all nice. Thats such a weird fashion thing the dancing oversocks, wouldnt you slip on the hardwood. Theyre always in music videos from this time period and earlier. Ok so the dance instructor freaks out at the students for being so bad and she decides to go check up on the previous victim. Ok now audience gets agood look at the killer, its not bad but its a mask and the claw seems rubber and silly. The set so far is just a theatre-like hall with long alcoves and passageways semi-lined with carpet and hardwood ornamentations. The effects are practical, something like clawing off some playdough to make it look like skin. Then with the sock shoe covering straight up shes doing the roadrunner legs running on the linoleum tying to get away. No title no credits right into dance scene awesome. Wow im like one step ahead of this movie 8:05 credits roll. Showing a scene of a overcast american town right away maybe looks like the home alone type house fairly large and brick 2-3 stories with an attic and two pillars at the entrance. Oh so Franco Gaudenzi never heard of him but always down to learn about writers. Nice movie title splash, its a red symettrical logo with some 80’s graffiti vibe. Creepy doll room. Taking up all the space. Oh man I was five years old when this came out. Kindergarden ECS. Ok new character looks like the princess from Flash Gordon 80s. Although not willing to th anything on that cause I was waay off last time. I guess mullet style hairdoo with wedding style lingerie ‘lawngeray’ Its really a mix of late 80s things Its got that cringe from the 80’s in the details. Coffee machines blender, carryon bags. Nice duck shot. Another character now with big hair. Nice neighhborhood. Man those patterns theres so much to comment on so far. If I was going to Day care Id be at Knob hill in Bankview thats some interesting memories. The tv clicker, i see it, and the thermostat, and all notice those minor nuances. Theres a magazine with Sly Stallone on the cover. Ok sweet the news lady wearing ridiculous furs briefs us on the situation, killer has a name I miseed. Hes killed several so far. Turn it off. Hmm some Mcgraw hill books thats funny I have one on my desk currently. Nothing to wear and other poems, never heard of that and Fire from the heavens, some more Ive never heard. Cool, Fire from heaven is novel about Alexander the Great. Reportedly from what im reading it was Oliver Stone inspiration for Alexander, thats going on the list for a later date. Oliver Stone is the shit, cant believe that came up. Ok Nothing to wear and other poems, just a brief look, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. 1807-1882 He was featured on a US Stamp 1940. Teacher writer traveller. With the magic of internet I can have a quick read. Wow just the intro he spoke to me. Thats neat. Me being born in the ‘new world’ I recall such a curiosity about Europe and across the oceans. Thats pretty cool. Anyways suppposed to be watching the movie but it came up still. Ok so lady is a writer.
Ok yea the movie lol. Theres a greaser in a bar. This lady character, shes got art shes a writer. Shes got the old new-style rotary without the rotary. Melanie is her name.. Anywways we ojnly see the greasers back hes got his collar up and has a raspy voice, probably talking with a toothpick in his mouth. Such a unique way to introduce a character. Undress he and make her state all her vulnerabilities. My prediction is shell probnably survive. That ring tone is just bizarre. Melanie has obsession with stuffed animals. So this lady has creeps calling her phone scream style. Or is scream, night killer style. So hes got the claw and hes a sexual predator. I guess he can talk with the mask on. I mean assuming this is allthe same killer, Maybe the drunk ex BF will just pop-in. If you ever wonder who drinks with gloves on, its people that CRUSH the drinking glass with their bare hands! It might be cause Melanie looks kindof familiar. Ok missingh some good suspense music. She checks across the street a man is leaving the payphone. Thats something you dont see everywhere is a phone booth. It was a handy thing but people would always smash em and spit all over the receiver. I remember there was a trick you could make the phone booth call itself that was cool. Talk about giving people space back then. Superman was able to get changed in a phone booth. You had your own private room with a closing door. Still with plastic windows graffiti everywhere. I dont know whats better now. If yous standingh in line might aswell catch up on the celly. People walking and driving around on their phones. Jenny beach has a police department, some interesting back turn scene. Diud I say Jenny beach I meant Virginia beach. Its South East of Washington DC Follow the coast line. Looks like a nice place to visit. Definetly that beach strip. Seen a palm tree too. Melanie Beck. Lock yourself in and Ill call back in 5 mins. Love the keys on the inside doors so you can lock yourself in. Theres a fire and your struggling with a key-ring lol. Titanic style. The turn around scenes are stylized. Claw guy is in the house. Nice the killer is back lol. Creepy voice hilarious face. Of course the doors are locked. She has time for a phone call. Oh her pretended eveything was ok so the cops wouldnt come back. Oh nice she has a 6-shooter snubnose. What hes wearing a mask for real. Ok plot announcement, so something terrible happens to her, 2 dectectives are walking through the hospital shes blocked out what the killer looks like from her traumatic memories. Shes forgotten everything now. She cant rememeber her daughter. This news report lol. Straight cheeze lol. For the record he goes off. Ok melanie is out of the hospital now shes driving trans am Drinking and driving straight up chases her.Agressive dude lol. Hes like where that lady go she walked in the bank. Now hes in the washroom checking doors. Lol shes making him strip lol. What was that scene lol. Hey man what happened to your clothes ahhaha. So i dunno who this dude he wants to be friends. This is Melanies idfea of a chill time several prescription botles and whisky shes probably gonna try to suicide. Now Jeep weirdo guy is on a hot pursuit at the beach. What are you doing! Lol now here cares hes drowning her forcing her to drink sea water this is crazy not something you see . trying to make her throw up. Just ruithless lol. I cant believe this. Ok enter greaser and his new date. Ok melanie survived rescued by a new assaulter. This actress going through alot and screaming a bunch. Now were in the claw guys art studio you can never see this guys face. So its the guy from bar. The guy with the mask and this girl just bizarre lol. Please just take me home lol. Face of hot wax what is going on lol. hes making out with a version of himself. Now some KFC. He wants to be friends. These character are so wild. These scenes are crazy. How many killers are there? Dating in the 90’s. Aquarium wave tank with a new character. Charatcer or mroe like victim. Wide belts were popular at the time. Aight here we go again the groper claw guy. Wardrobe malfuntion. Its always young attractive ladies getting chased byu the claw guy then he rips their hearts out. That aquarium pretty cool. Yea called it. Ok Melanie again. I kill you kill me with the crazies. wake up lets be cheery. This guyy is completewly psycho 50 shades of gray erotica. Tearing sheets. I think shes a good actress going through all these scenes. I Like the old pattern ambulance. The ideas and scenes are pretty scary for a 90’s movie The guy actor is pretty believable psycho. And with the gun and the mental trauma and chases, is pretty wild. I thought it would be cheezier and less suspense. I guess when youre that crazy you dont need a gun just a switchblade. ALso i wasnt sure if they were playing the mask off as a special effect liek that wasmewant to be real, and the claw too. But they are props. Hes seen taking them on and off and thats pretty good. The movie is self aware and plays with the questions im asking myself in my head. Its way cooler that the mask, is a prop the killer wears. I thought it was trying to be his actual skin. I gotta say I like when a movie features a town place ive never heard of, sometimes for better or worse. Mer personally I thionk Virgina Beach is a place I would like to visit not knowing very much about it, along with Cannon beach from Goonies (opposite coast) Amazing just seeing it on g-maps. I guess that can maybe relate to what I was reading about ‘Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’ From his own words about curiosity and outside of your own realm.
6th victim now. MAsked Maniac! Thats so fitting. And theres such a weird romance the mask guy is obssesed wityh Melanie, and they share all these close scenes, like close up face to face. Ok the masked maniac is such a good stalker he talks loud with his eyes wide open all creazy like. Crazy eyes and he drives crazy too its just exagerated but awesome in the character it create. I cant tell how serious this movie takes itself. i have no experience making movies but I like the camera effects. I mentioned the turning around motion shots the closeups. Ok i get the sense Melanie is starting to learn she could maybe manipulate maniac, im not sure yet though shes pretty battered. Shes mastered the screaming cussing and distant look. Like the long drawn out scenes like this is what im talking about. Really on some fringes between like a weird psycho romance. Hmm i think i recognized the phone booth guy at the detective interview. Something schizophrenia, maybe that is partially true but the killer exists does he not. Thats a good sample speech.Shes a hot mess. Theres are those who believe. Interesting so they have the squad cars out, are they rentals or outside the actual police dept. They describe the plot via interviews. She has a desire to kill herself. If she remembers his face he will kill her. Then the cringiest line, “hey your girlfriend has one hell of a hangover” And he howls: ” You can say that again.”
The way he drinks slow and passionately. The knock at the door. “What was that noise!, Gunshot!?” At the hotel lmao.Oh man sweet talk your way out of this. Heres a dollar tip in the eyeglasses. Softcore slasher style with giant weird strokes. Its a caprice police squad car with blue lights. The self proclaimed famous experts going on tv with ridiculous tv appearances shooting their mouths off with high pollutant theories that sounds familiar. Nice the detective threatens him with bad press to make him look like a quack. I wonder what that would look like. Homicidal masked maniac. Now the creepy music.. Hmm historical accuracy reference. The panama scandals 1892, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote about France and South American scandal. Oh yea what else is new. Oh yea I forgot about the Father here in the relationshio he saved her once and only had the scar. I seemingly forgot about him in all the madness. A christmas tree. Using the Tv for plot deliveries. Thats maybe how i rememebvr tv and living room when I was five. Love how he shits the tv off with that authority click. Diplomat Motel wonder if its still there. Hard to say Motels can be similar in appearance. Theres a few in a row there. Noe the hotel manager. Hes on the phone. Well here we go the jig is up. The Hojo. Why dont you go back to the station aahahaha. lol BAd ass cop.throttles that manager. The hardwood circles on those doors is retro. Oh gun butt fight. This guy lol. Leave the gun lol. Hes almost got the gun in her face. The second mom lost it but same with scarface. Oh wow the old t-shirt pyjama thats retro. Those bucket bangs. Oooh more phone booths. She sees her headline on the paper. Lol as she escapes. So bad its good. Of course the taps didnt work couldnt trace the call. Temperate rainy xmas. and some funny running down the streets. This is such a small town you can just drive around and recognize people. ITs a car chase with people. Get in the car. The sneakers I rememeber that style. Lock yourself in again lol. She remembers maybe. The phone booth. Staring right at the window lol. So she can talk. Looked like the scarface was the killer. Still it could be switched then.. HEs here. This time its the scarface guy. I was pretending lol. 2 psycho actors for the price of one. That voice is the best. Sherman is a creep but the other guy too. Melanie gonna stab herself yea right hahaha. That was stupid of me he says. So whats the other guy also stalker but he wants to be friends.Heres shes all cut up and battered looking like a zombie. Shes chasing sherman. Lol. That grimace though. Oh didnt expect that that shes the nigth killer. Still I feel it can go any way. Lol oh my god she stabbed him at the wiorse place. Oh yo soemone jumps thru the window and blasts him. Didnt see that coming but whats the eal with the BF. Movie is pretty hardcore. Relive the experience to fix yourself. And they have a nice happy family lol. Mystery xmas box. Theres another twist im sure. Tara Buckman same era but not from Flash G, however was in Buck rogers. That was entertaining lol. And that mask. The music was good too reminds me of fantasy music like never ending story. Horror psychological thriller comedy suspense learnt some cool things too.

Born Free ’66

Lets see I know barely anything about this film.
I know its sad. With a title like ‘Born Free’ makes me think it can’t end well then. Even as the years have gone by since this movie I wonder whats happened to these people and scenes im seeing. Never been to Africa but the Lion is pretty amazing. That Speed. Theres a monologue. Joy Adamson, George in Kenya. Barong or something region difficult to hear exactly but couldn’t find it, and a man eating lion. Theres George. He takes care of the man-eaters. As in shoots em. I dont think hes a hunter, but gotta protect the communities. Now theres 3 little lion cubs. They wont eat or unable to eat. Thats sad you know theyre going to be near domesticated. These lion cubs are mega cute. They all have their own personality as Joy describes. Elsa the smallest one. Its fun to watch em play. That other small animal not sure what that is. Its a family that lives with 3 lion cubs getting into trouble constantly. Questions if man-eating is a hereditary trait, that’s interesting im not sure either. Im sure the dna has a role to play, but generally its a giant tiger with huge claws playing and hunting probably have the same effect. Eviscerating something to shreds then eating it. Hunger or opportunity could also play a part. Might be a bit more docile but still. Would have to go against most instincts wrestling with a full grown lion. Now theyre off to a zoo, eventually. But how would they live wihtout being able to provide food for themselves. Poor Joy she lost her little critter. Lots of hazards in the Savannah. Id be motivated to keep Elsa instead of the zoo as well. Crazy seeing the gazelles. George can sense his wife grieving the loss. She cant deal with putting the cubs on a plane. Getting a look at Nairobi I believe, Joy did some shopping. Nice just seen Elsa in the back of the truck. They’ll have to live with it now for better or worse, or redo that trip. Its just as the accepted it was gone and was not a human, was allowed to keep her pet. This fellow arrives again he suggested the zoo the first time. Some time passes and George is recovering from malaria. Buddy makes himself a drink. Elsa seems fairly large. Elsa smushes George she must weigh a great mass. John is his name. Just stays the nigth instead of having a drink then driving home. They have a nice home. John foreshadows a upcoming situation where George and Joy must return back to England for ‘leave’. Hes the game warden maybe its a temporary position.
It would be frightening to cross paths with an unknown lion in the wild. Imagine just in your house while trying to wash up. Old school washroom. Wall;s floors and colors. At night time would be on the prowl. Elsa thinks Joy is her mom. Wouldnt be alive in the wild. George is concerned, first hes talking to Elsa, then Joy is having a increased bond with the child lioness. Georges duty calls him to the road. Gonna have to go kill another man eater. Joy becomes the narrator. Shes right George is there to kill another lion but here they have a lion pet in the back of the truck.Hes not there to kill automatically im sure, but assess the situation then respond. Im sure theres some qualifications to the job they’re doing. Some noises coming from the kitchen or trucks. Nice camp setup. Its a small house. Yikes crossing paths with a wild lion. Hopefully Joy doesn’t decide to start playing with it like Elsa. Slowly back away. John’s goat eater. George pretty brave but he sacked a couple aggressive ones last time. These older movies the lighting at night time looks pretty bright sky still. Early dawn twilight. Sure enough just as he turns his back the lion shows itself, George goes to fire, but rookie move, no ammo. Its like a bad dream alot of scenes in this movie. Crossing paths with lions, firearms not working when you need them. This time the goat eater gets away with a meal. George embarrassed forgot his ammo. Third time he gets rushed in this movie. Some humour about the watch dog that slept throughout the whole ordeal. Now the big cat gets to meet Indian ocean with an entourage. Theyre all swimming thats not something you see. Another scary scene to encounter on a Sunday swim. Was expecting a shark but instead its swimming lion. The beach is pretty nice featuring some overhang small cliff ledges. Suddenly something bad happens and interrupts the vacation. some cool scenes of lion swimming. I know it to be true but havent seen much before. Lion playing with a coconut. Hes having some type of seizure. Too much malaria medication, seems like hell be ok for now. Doc is happy to get outta that tent. Lion determines when its meal time. Joy states the last holiday they all took. Theres a male Lion hanging around now. Some troubles coming up and some hunters in the area. First things is to shoot it. Anyways Elsa escape that fate for the moment. Some elephant herd and lion footage. I wouldn’t want to get stampeded by elephants. Shooting only for protection. Joy narrates as the follow the aftermath of the stampede everything is trampled and destroyed. Somehow Elsa has a friend of prey and the single out elephant appears at the property. John suggests it was Elsa’s fault that caused the stampede. John is quite insistent on the zoo. Joy suggests setting her free, again they dont know if she could feed herself. Well they got their 3 months then John has some drinks and drives home. Maybe some type of wildlife preserve. They have a plan to introduce hunting and cut the meals. Now theres a new Male lion maybe they can start a family. Theres a bunch of howling dialogue. Lions playing but that was interesting encounter. Elsa has the Savannah taxi, she gets to tour lion destinations, such as trees and dead zebras. There was many lions to feed that last kill. Elsa got ditched and George and Joy are having some guilt. Elsa getting bullied by a warthog. Isnt looking good for Elsa, but shes just being natural. Theyre not having much luck making Elsa turn wild. all beat up like an alley cat. Not sure what the outcome will be. George drops em off. Poor Elsa getting dropped off alone in the rain. Its sad cause theyre all used to living together. Wanted to leave her out alone for a week with the gazelle. Poor lion all tired and hungry cant feed itself dying of nutrition. Its a tough predicament thats even tougher with a emotional attachment. Its a moral dilemma that comes with playing god and living with wild animals. Joy is determined that Elsa have her freedom, and its a sad situation. Its like the Free willy of the 60’s but way better. Theres some character development with Elsa, and she kills the first warthog and again. Also they have a better living estrangement. George can kill wildlife to feed Elsa if shes starving and starts going out more and more. The goals is to join a pride then, and live free.But its nice they make effort to let her life the most natural life possible. Lots of unpredictable tiger scenes must have been hard to shoot. Cheering Elsa to find a new family but battle ensues. Its a sad turn of events but in a wway its the best possible scenario for the Lion. If its not natures its humans as predator. Well they go on leave, and return to the same place. The calling card is a rifle shot in the air. Thats nice ending. The importance of not caging wild animals and letting go. Thats a good movie, good story.

Flash Gordon ’36

Glad I gave these a shot, its a bunch of shorts. 84 yrs since release.
Planet of peril.
To someone being a space traveler in the future these films are gonna be the most entertaining thing to watch.
The synopsis is the same. Two scientists observe a planet rushing towards them, one of their sons is Gordon. Gordon happens to be on his way on a trans-continental flight
The plane encounters some meteor showers and passengers must escape with parachutes. They land in visibly upset Dr. Zargov’s field. So with a quick description of the problem they jump in the steam valve rocket ship. Its pretty awesome. Comments like: “oops forgot to turn on the oxygen, its no big deal.” The lizard fighting dinosaur scene is pretty epic, theyre running outta caves and wrestling then they get zapped by another rocket ship. The sounds are awesome for the rocket ship and some real pyrotechnics. The costumes looks like some suits of armor. The party meets Ming finally tries to throw Flash in the arena, but he comes out on top. Both the emperors daughter and the ‘earth’ girl are bamboozled by the polo-Gordon. Anyways what can I say so far awesome.
Planet of peril is a novel. Writing about sci fi is neat concept just imagining what things will or could be like and add in some humor and entertaining situations.
Tunnel of terror.
Whats happening with that intro scene and all the flailing arms. That crown the emperors daughter is wearing looks like a lesser model to the statue of liberty crown.
First time I see rocket plane. But nevertheless awesome. And all comes from the comic in ’34 so far is what I learnt. Emperors daughter shes beautiful but also mischievous. Theres actually a dog fight in the air and crash thats awesome. Whoa the giant god oracle statue thats a cool moving prop like Kong. Thats what I saw in the intro scene. Some roman centurion outfits, some Egyptian looking props. Claw monster suit is really good.
__
Captured by Shark Men.
This pretty fun to watch and only 20 mins per short.So Flash and his new buddy they’re making their way through the castle. That gong keeps smashing, and they storm the wedding crashing through some ornamental statue. They grab Dale, the ‘earth’ girl. Flash rescues her from the wedding to emperor Ming. Flashes buddy is left behind fighting, Dale and Gordon fall into a trap, and then these shark-men get released. Its a strange scene, half mix between water ballet and fighting. After some slow fighting they board the shark mens boat. IT hazardous trip as they witness shark and octopus fight.They call the octopus something else. Everywhere you’d expect to be some computer display in submarine is replaced by valves, knobs, pistons, pressure gauges,light bulbs, clamps, bells and whistles. The octopus could pose a hazard to the crew so they are to wear some bucket mask re-breathers. In case they must swim to the surface. Anyways they make it to the water king, there flash has to fight him one vs one. Meanwhile emperors daughter is chasing the path of flash, she find his new buddy. Buddy says they went that way. Flash beats the water king but then is sabotaged and turned in to emperor Ming. He gets dropped in a new octopus tank and so far was beating the crap outta it. He looks kinda like Aquaman. Otherwise its pretty good going to keep watching this morn its May 8th 2020.
__
Battling the sea beast.
Thun is the name of Gordons friend. Spaceographed. Lets look through the window at flashes fate. The octopus you can hardly tell the difference. Poor flash battling all these monsters but someone always comes to help him, ore he uses he strength to dominate the situation. The skull caps are archaic in appearance. Octosac is what its called. Thuns got the wild beard. That town on the mountain top looks like something Bob Ross could paint, with increased sci-fi. Zarkhovs lab, inthe observatory. The shadow of Ming looks like Yoda. One of the sharkmen at the computer facilities. Emperors daughter destroys the life support, shes so mischievous. The toppling city, on the wobbling table. The title wave cut. This film is great so far that was probably on of my favorite so far. People from Mongo are keen on destroying Flash but he always manages to make daring rescue attempts and gets rescued himself. Its cool he doesn’t have any extraordinary super powers, or need any tech, just being physically strong and strong-willed.Can run fast, able to hold breath long.
__
The observatory was meant to be shot of Earth, I just realized, not a shot of the Zargov laboratory. Thats ok. Now its May 9, few days on the Flash now.
The miniature cities are cool so far theyre all unique, Ming lives in the mountains, Kala used to live in the sea. They foreshadowed the negative ray.

The Destroying Ray.
Princess Aura is mischievous thats her name. Although she did save Flash, for herself. Not only that she destroyed the whole city and air supply, thats not nice. But she is Mings daughter what does one really expect. Oh yea tidal wave. Ming explains he has this ‘other’ ray, turns a slider and some knobs,. Im not really clear, so Ming has a tv set he can zoom into the sea-town, but needs focus. There also a magnetic field that keeps a city underwater, but from the lab Ming has another ray, that happens to simulate that same effect. Now Ming decided he wants a rescue party. Every territory has a king, good to have friends in high place, but everyone has their own agenda that might not agree with Flash. Thun is still a good-guy. On Planet Mongo, Mings palace the guards resemble space Romans. Other metallic suits. The real heir now introduces himself to doc Z. He happens to have a rocket ship so off they go. the audio kills me its a plane fly-by sound with the rockets. Love that. More dragon scenes I dont see the strings its a nice travel montage. Heres some hawkmen. Obviously arent so friendly at first , the first thing to do is rush off the girls. Well its convenient hawkmen can fly. Flash fight anybody group of people too. Everyone has short clothes, maybe its arid climate. The rocketship scenes are pretty badass. So now at the hawk city. The boisterous fellow he looks familiar. The hawkmen city floats on three beams of lights. Its maybe the nicest of all theree and features in the title screen. Nothing like seeing the you know what salute. They have a gravity ray, something maybe nowadays call a tractor beam. Just funny to me the nuances of the time. Whoa painted bear, slaps him on the butt. Maybe I got it wrong but the string just cuts. Probably something to do with Hawkmen gonna save em, is my guess. Space Soldiers is the title, Flash is the main character, along with the rest of the party.

Flaming torture.
_
The synopsis is clear, Ming raised the city, as in, raised it out of the water with the beam, saving the earth and friends party. Just then Hawkmen interfere splitting Dale and Thun, taking them to sky city.. The city in the sky is arguably the best. Meanwhile, Zarkov and Prince Barin, the true heir they become frned and have left Mings mountain palace , not theyre headed to meet up with the rest of the gang. Thun had become prisoner, and was shown in some scens i thought it was coal, but hes shoveling in radium to the atom furnaces. Much power needed to keep a city afloat. Bespin could be hawkmen sky city. King Vultan is the best, he has a pet bear with paint and piercings and a boisterous laughter. I suppose hes comparable to the 80’s version. Which probably didnt need to be type but here I am. Even the title screen has described him as boisterous, which could mean a few different things.
Radium is interesting to learn about. Thun might be on his way to a lethal dose of radiation. but i guess was popular product a bit earlier time than this movie was used up till 1917s.
Ok the ray hit that ship. The ray hiut em and also saved em. Ursel begone. I would be slapping no bear thats forsure. Oh Flash isnt gonna be happy with Vultan. Sky city might have the same fate as shark city. Everyone wants Flash for their own prerogatives, same with Zarkov. Ming finds out about the Hawkmen. Ming claims the prince is the pretender. Getting the sky fleet ready now. Flash is the Best he just fights any oppressor anytime. Well they know radium kills, and the king knows that he needs a better power source. Now Aura and Dale, Princess aura convinces her to ‘give-up’ Flash, cause shes the cause of all the problems. Dale is like ok seems legit, ill do it. Thos other grandiose sets with dozens of people and the stairwells are interesting. meanwhile Vultan stuff himself. Some of the off scene dialogue cracks me up every time. The voice is slightly off or some content they had to put in after the shot. Just something to comment on that I like. The chef hawkman thats pretty funny, well I guess they dont have beaks and claws so they eat like humans. Wow those chops of meat hes eating. Hes very hospitable. I just realized thats his entertainment. That Aura shes such mischievous manipulator and leads the King on, that Dale find mongo men more attractive than earth men. Wonder if he be laughing after he finds out. The wings look pretty good and standard, a bit stiff. Well Flash had enough gets up and cracks the whip guy in the face. Prisoner riot. Surely Dale loves Flash as much if not more than Aura. How will Flash get out of this one, the tesla torture chamber. Im sure Flash will escape. Lets see Buster Crabbe in UFC 249.

Shattering Doom.
Compelling is inspiring, or cant look away. Compelled is forced to join. ‘Princess aura determined to wed flash’. This is like the Archie of the 1930’s space explorer. Dale is Betty, Princess Aura is Veronica. Theres some deception afoot thats forsure, surely to backfire in her face. The static room, thats his interrogation room where Flash remains. Its a rack and some spark action in a new laboratory. Its a unique lab to the rest but im sure some pieces were used. Electricity overcharging sounds. Im not sure what his intent is with Dale, but to find the truth on her love of Flash. Her fainting cant hide her love for Flash. All of a sudden Princess Aura appears with a ray-gun. Vultan is upset to be disturbed during his ‘science’. But appears aura’s true intent is revealed. You mad ? Well hes not laughing. So its twice shes saved him. Shes like, yes I want the ‘earth’ man all to myself. Poor flash has been zapped beyond consciousness and giving any consent. Oh the electro stimulator, thats what revives a zapped person. This is science from Zargovs mouth. Its a bed within a tube surrounded by springs and lights, that looks like a retro CT scan machine. Or futuristic I mean. Flash has been Ko for a while, he will.. -pause-, live. His eyes wide open and a semi-sinister laughter. A hand puppet show. So flash comes off the table is relieved to see Zargov, he doesnt comprehend the whole arranged marriage hes been set up. I want more than your gratitude. Classic I cant have you she cant neither, and she tried to kill him but couldn’t. Pretty dramatic. Finally they Dale and Flash get to see each other for a moment before a quick fight. Back to the furnace room. A luxury city cannot operate without slaves and whip carying slave drivers. Not sure that crank that the one hawkman is operating in the furnace room looks like a giant clock face. Here comes Mings fleet. Nice break behind a metal wall. Zargov appears with aplan to get Flash free involving a shovel. Its not just any wall, its a lead wall. I do not dine with unruly subjects, something similar. Here Vultan and Ming are arguing over the ‘earth’ girl and Flash is about to throw the sabotage shovel in the furnace causing probably total destruction. Ming wants apologies. Ming is pissed, Flash throws the shovel in and the resulting explosion. takes out the camera just like the tidal wave previous at shark town.

Tournament of Death.
Cant believe im 8 chapters in. so Zarkov thankfully helped Flash potentially escape. Instead of putting the high voltage on his wrist he put it on the Shovel. Flash is the charismatic leader of the furnace gang and thankfully he has the Prince with him, although I saw him try to hold Flash back, thats probably a mistake. But before he throws the shovel in he instructs everyone to get back behind the wall men.I love how the chapters all start similar. Mid-scene and some destructive event and…… (jumps into scene). Another riot. Another city about to be leveled. Flash runs into the throne room uncontested grabs a sword and has the emperor subdued for now. Zargov explains the countdown clock. Its going quick one moment while the city leans is all flash needs, everyone is stunned. This scene must be one of the original startrek bridge scene, everyone is grasping the nearest support and stumbling all over the place as one would in a earthquake. The air quake. Zargovs new ray fixes the sky city and rigth away the emperor of the universe denies him, Flash looks pissed. Now under the newest terms flash had to enter the death arena and survive, but then he gets his own kingdom and wife of his choosing. Its straight up Arena of Death. Mighty masked swordsman of Mongo. “You may go”.
Flash gets dressed in the only paid of pants on Mongo , to fight Ming’s Birdman. Its a fencing duel like gentleman. Arena of death just happens in the throne room, just opposite side. Damn Flash lost his sword for a second but quickly recovers. The prince confesses is love for princess aura, the titles are suiting. Suddenly a ape-unicorn beast appears. this must be the beast of Mongo. Theyre not shy on showing it too a bunch of close ups. Its no so much of a unicorn but a rhino spike. The prince has gone back to having his pointy little mustache. Cmon flash beat up that gorilla. Everyone watches on. Ming is having a great time.The chapter ends with the battle unresolved. Eventually Flash is going to win all these contests.
__
Its May 10 2020. Not much Flash left.

Fighting the Fire Dragon.
Back to the emperor breaking promises. Oh yea Flash was fighting the huge Orangopoid rhino head beast. Slayed that beast.Nice so of course Ming has another plan up his sleeve and Aura saves him again. Well Thun had enough of the party. “I dont trust Ming,” she says “oh now dont be silly he says.” Zargov keeps trying to contact earth from Mongo, the planet Mongo. Flashes dad is at the other end, they cant make out the message yet. Ming bout to do some first aid and takes control. Vultan had pissed off the performer but especially Flash. Now the Ming priest spying on Aura who in turn, spying on Flash and Dale. The priest motivated by a fear of death from the emperor and Aura motivated by wanting Flash for herself, they hatch a plan to deceive them and bring them through the Tunnel of Terror, cause the fire dragon should be sleeping. Nothing but the sacred sound can rouse him. Priest gives her some pills to sedate em. Well theyre waiting the 3 days, before going to Ming palace. Aura sets off her plan. Some wine appears seemingly from Vultan but it must be the poisoned brew. Sure enough they both pass out, gotta put him on a stretcher bed. Maybe someone sabotaging the radio communications. Vultan shows up he says no whine was sent. Buddy counting his coins. Princess Aura sent the wine. Here comes the gong of everything. Yes fire monster. Flash just sleeping the screaming monster is the best seriously. How is Flash gonna wake up in time, and destroy that fire monster.

The Unseen Peril.
Flash supposed to be dining at the emperor feast day, but instead hes in the tunnel of terror cause Aura drugged him, and the priest woke up the fire dragon with the gong.
Drugged with drops of forgetfulness how clever. Now Flash about to kick some ass hes gonna be pissed. The gong even ha s a pic of the dragon and poof he just appears. Whoa doc Zargov comes through with the grenade and blows its to pieces. The High priest considers this sacrilegious and gives them a stern lesson. Auras pretty much busted. Busted giving Buster some powerful drugs. Back at the Ming Hq. The unforeseen peril is that Flash cant remember. Vultan loses it, with good reason, but they’ll never defeat Ming without teamwork. Now Mings gone and done it and confined king Vultan in a dungeon. Flash lost his memory but Zargov has a plan that involves rays. Aura now starts with the lies. Dale clearly broken hearted. But says nothing, a few tears. Flash, pauses. No. I dont know why he trusts Aura, now Flash and the prince have a fight. Zargov restrains him Prince knocks him out. Prince Baron, I cant remember. Back on earth they get a new receiver. Zargov gets on the horn with earth. Its inconclusive. Aura has nothing to do but escape and inform her father. Ming is pissed, one earth man messed with his empire. Ming wants him executed, Aura protests, but the main guard heads out on his mission. Things are not looking good. I thougt maybe he was like stand here, now you cant shoot here or something blows up, but Flash just disappears. Ming and Aura are gonna get theirs I’m pretty sure. Just imagine a whole planet of humans like Gordon, giving Ming grief. Ming is losing it with one. Officer Torch.

In the Claws of the Tigron.
I wonder what that is. This time, the chapter starts when.. Oh a new Ray, that makes you invisible or visible. Its the same steam sound as the rocket ships or the submarine, some power sound. Ok Flash is invisible for part of the episode. The guards just ran off. Now torch produces the story. These scenes are the best Flash is invisible causing mischief of his own and strangling Ming. However Ming is clever enough to figure out the invisibility machine must be coming from inside his own house. King Vultan meanwhile is set free. All the guard are scared of the prospect of a invisible Flash. Someones going to end up staying invisible forever. Zarkov says, I want to call New York. He throws the chair in shock.Here Ausra is working her plan. with a audio cable of some kind to listen to their conversation. Nice room behind the wall. Prince Baron notices that their conversation has been compromised. So they quickly flee the lab. The prince gonna come back and guard that invisibility machine later. They take some big electrical transformer boxes off towards the space ship. Flash is invisible a second/third time, but hes been compromised and the guard has already reported back to Ming. So Mings intent is clear he wants to marry Dale, cause shes not allowed to leave the planet now. Always some deception. Earlier Ming after he was choked, the high priest suggested cause the god was mad that was the best scene. Lock up this babbling ape. Ming gets interrupted by the gong on his on speech thats hilarious. Mings face when he finds out Dale is in the catacombs with Baron, somehow he agrees to not blow up the invisibility machine for now, aslong as flash is destroyed on sight. Instantly. Tigron is a dog pretty much that follows a scent. Thats a good fight scene when theyre trying to find out what happened to Dale and the prince, and now the Tigron, its a tiger should have known it looks pissed. Maybe Vultan slapped its behind. Dale gets surprised by tiger Climbing up in her thats crazy.

Trapped in the Turret.
Wonder what that means.
__
Its May 11 2020.
Trapped in the Turret.
Left off Dale was being attacked by the actual Tiger, on Mongo they call it Tigron, it probably has some accessories. From the title screen we learn that Zargov decided to undertake the venture back. Invisible Flash. Ok Its Prince Barin, I keep writing ‘Baron’, sounds the same and dont want to check more online content till im done. The text states that Vultan and Zarkov are loading the ship, they return to the laboratory… I love the intros, there quite a bit going on per episode. Barin knows the catacombs. The fight with Vultan and ‘invisible’ Flash is funny. Vultan uses his belly to bounce off his enemies, all while laughing outrageously. Flash is beating them up while invisible.The guard hes like stop them on the floor. Reaching out. Flash and Barin rush to go rescue Dale, whose being mauled by tiger, shes screaming obviously. Thankfully Flash and prince Barin arrive, Barin is wearing armor but its flash that runs in and wrestles down the tiger in some pretty crazy scenes. Ming is playing on the steam valve computer. Hes able to view the fight between flash and the Tiger. Again Aura puts Dale in danger, then shes all concerned when Flash jumps in the cavbbe room and fights the tiger single handed. Maybe if he would have listened to Thun, none of this would have happened. Finally after watching for a bit Barin jumps in just as flash kills the tiger with his bare hands! Auras friend is all sad. Just like the rancor keeper in Return of the Jedi. She runs off. Aura really cant see anyone be happy. Barin pleads with her, you can be friend with trhe earth people by helping them. Alright she agrees. As they hold hands. Meanwhile, guard Torch regains his blaster rifle and he wants the secrets of the invisibility machine. Flash looks a little disturbed after killing the Tigron. Aura pleads for another chance after several failed and successful sabotage attempts. In the throne room Ming is barking some orders about doubling the guard asnd trying to get to the bottom of the Zargov invisibility machine. Ming is lucky he doesnt get his head chopped off, he wants them all to live in peace. Meanwhile the invisibility machine is destroyed with the butt of blaster rifle, Zargov is pissed. Ming still is having trouble granting the earthling their freedom. Instead they want the festival to go on. However for now, he declare them all free Vultan, Zargov, Flash and Dale. Of course guard Torch doesnt believe them. Zargov is sad, the invisibility machine is broken. Back on earth, Gordons dad gets the message. Thats theyre trying to leave Mongo and return home. “Gee that was swell doc” Flash says about talking to his dad. King Vultan offers a suggestion why not come to my kingdom before returning to Earth. Sure sounds like a good time. Ming enacts a plan where the earth peopl emust be observed and monitored for every move and every conversation overheard. The second part of the order to monitor Barin and Aura. Now Ming cant let anyone be happy hes gotta wave his scraggly fingers in everyones face from the throne room chair. Torch is like ok. Thun is coming back. Theyre watching them leave now. Watch them yea we know. Load up that oscar meiyer weiner rocket. Theyre heading to the turret house Lake of something R. The guard walk so wide. Liftoff on one of the rockets. Thun is back on the TV. Here Thun was in command of a fleet of saucers. Dragons make an appearance along with the propeller plane engine noises. They get to the turret house where theyre supposed to meet Barin. He he comes landing the rocket. Oh this rocket is shooting at them . Probably not Barin then. I guess it trying to build suspense and maybe finish this conflict once and for all.

Rocketing to Earth.
Is this already the conclusion. Well all good things must come to an end. That kind of makes me sad that was a fun adventure. Last time watching the intro. Zargov was dejected then, didnt realize that was an emotion. But it means in low spirits and you could see his face. Dejected indeed. Its obviously Ming. Conveniently theyre right above a trap door. Looks like Vultan got blown up but manages to walk away. Now Prince Barin in the same dungeon as Flash and the party rescues him. They’re in the laboratory preparing some defenses when torch, and minions show up. They still know, but Doc Zargov has electrified the door. They all back up in horror every time the door zaps, Ming is the best he stumbles a few paces back with his hands flailing in the air. Finally they cut the electricity to the chamber, and the door becomes a regular un-electrified door. Here is a air sire and Thun is in command. Destroy the door seize the prisoners. Bring em to the throne room again. Now theres a dog fight between Thun and the emperors fleet. Theyre called gyro-saucers or something. Everyone gathers around the TV. Nice Thun and the lion men. From Lion city. Now Ming is on the run. The throne room infiltrated. The narrator announce Thun. One of those odd off camera clips. Thun Barin and Flash pursue Ming as he gets to a double set of doors. Aura in pursuits shortly after. Here comes the gong, and Ming and showered in smoke behind the mysterious double doors in a bizarre ritual.The high priest claims hes dead, but well see. Zargov claims theyre out of danger for now. Of course the high priest overhears them, and they have a chance to escape. Again in the throne room they have a final fairwell, for the benfit of science. Too bad the high priest has sabotaged their ship. Another rocket scene, the original puppet ships as far as I know. Theres a bomb in the ship they must get rid of, so Barin gets at the radio station, her advises Flash theres a time bomb on board. Flash is jiggling the radio finally he gets the message, thankfully he knows what it looks like and throws it outside. That was pretty suspenseful. Flash calling earth, shut down all generators. Nice announcement scene. New York. Zargov is happy they saved themselves and Flash and Dale can get married. Kinda sad thats over now im pretty sure theres atleast one more film I can seek if I need some more Flash Gordon in my life.
__
Gotta get the intro.
__
I guess theres not too much profound about Flash Gordon 36 but it was pretty interesting and havent seen anything quite like that. Theres really no comparison to the 80’s version. i might be inclined to check the comic or other movie another time. It was entertaining. Theres more movies featuring Buster Crabbe. Olympian and lion tamer army training films lots of interesting things. Its amazing reading some of the comments on youtube when Brigadier Flash meets Buck Rogers cameo. The Sharkmen King performed in alot of movies i was reading, was a body guard. Zargov was in a bunch of silent movies.

Flash Gordon ’80

Got this going last night looked pretty epic so far, the only context I have is the Queen Song, same title.
Hes the savior of the universe alright.
The 80’s are fun, Im expecting that going to have to watch the original after, which I know nothing about.
Oh yea the actor from this film appears in another film I think its hot tub time machine maybe and he crashes through some walls. I cant confirm and ill do the research later.
Well I like the sets so far from the plane to the greenhouse. The characters seem silly a bit, comedic almost. The moon rocks pretty funny. Once iarrived on the moon the sets and costumes are crazy. Ive noticed the targeting cam used a couple times. Rocket ship trip is thrilling. The overlord costume is both awesome and ridiculous. Hes like: “yeah your loyal ? then drop on your sword.”
But so far this movie pretty entertaining, didnt expect much. Ive heard the song more times then ive though about watching this movie. Special effects are pretty psychedelic it feels a bit like a cartoon or a comic. Which I guess is why they show the comic panels at the start.
The flash reminds me of the 60’s batman ‘Robin’ Flash is kinda nerdy with some cheezy one-liners but I expect him to do some awesome things so its ok.
I cant believe the sets and costumes. Very red and gold shiny plates
The lizard man and scream is just the funniest thing. The drone flying around is rip off from some of the droids in Starwars, stormtroopers a little bite too.
The 80’s style in futuristic space, is the best.This doctors , i still gun this gun in my pocket. Hes like stop. zaps it.
Angry hawkmen, the loyalty offerers that drapecd gold chain upon themselves, the little space squares with helmets, the easter-color princesses looking with robes, the black and white tall furry hat chess piece personnel with metal mask faces, the gold-robbed-golden-mask, and the red vest wearing gold outfitted with red bloused boots ‘Iron-men’, the typical storm trooper red and gold plated guards, the blue veiled triangle finger shape makers. the darker veiled group in the back the portly skunk fellow, the long white robe also wearing hat shaped like a skyscraper, and the wrestling intro for the emperor, and the gold masked darkened face sidekick to the emperor are some of the character in these shots. The hawkmen wings look like old metal, the rest of the outfit is straps and skin. Ming. Obey or sacrifice your daughter. well its just a harness for wings then. The ultimate bead costume is how I would describe Ming. The one princess looks like shes from Never ending story. Hes like Flash Gordon Quarterback New York Jets, nice. Oh hes got the ring of Schwartz. Oh its the emperor daughter that looks like from never-ending story. These teeth guys with the helmets, and the bubble wrap girls. Whats not to like seriously. Some wrestling football combo. Love those watercolor or smoke backgrounds need more of that. Snout mask guards. The execution set looks like something out of willy wonka, and some judge dredd types how is he gonna get outta this one. So everytime theres a unplanned natural disaster, its emperor ming. How many beads were used in this film, and they show ww2, monkey montage with his life flash before him. Maybe there a way to get them back. Nice russian accent. Cant get enough of the watercolor smoke backgrounds . Its called telepathy, over. Looks like the williams pinball logo. Ewok village scene. Its Robin hood pretty much. Oh man the hawkmen,lizard men. Now its Dagobah. Its the crystal palace. Allright they got a plan. Fist in stump game. Spike circle mario party eliminator. Nice eyeballs. Skullcaps and rocket cycles. The hawkman character is pretty funy hes so boisterous and loud. That mud scene was like the tom cruise white horse sinking in the mud too. Lots of similar costume and pieces and the song samples. Now its jason and the argos. That roll out banner. Nice the goggle eyes and the general melting Be merry under penalty of death. Nice his second crash of the movie.
For what it is and the cheese special effects Its awesome in all its uniqueness and bites. Strange movie. The end? Thats a whole experience of a movie.
__
Its the Ted Sam Jones cameo. Ornella Muti, really beautiful but not from never ending story. The outfit or headpiece might be similar in my memory.
Maybe ill watch one of those old 30s Flash Gordon, never knew any of that. Nor Buck Rogers bit before my time. Thats kind of interesting though.
Obviously Queen, and the Flash song, but forgot about Highlander.
___
Dr. Zhargov it seems like hes in fiddler on the roof forsure, but also looks like a character from a Clint Eastwood movie.
I can just imagine someone promoting this movie saying its gonna be the new starwars. Its completely silly, but its more than watchable.

The Thing from Another World ’51

Besides the intro, and the burning dripping theme, this time in b/w.
Last black and white I saw was Kong.
Facilities are way better, at least for the officers.
This time the poles are reversed, and actual Arctic not, Antarctic.
Similar story. No Kurt. That plane with the skis is pretty sweet. Where were they Alaska , 3 hrs to North pole, or 6 hour total trip. Anchorage.
Ok so these are the real facilities. The ol Kentucky home. I bet hes the first one to go.
Anchorage to Northpole. Some hight tech machines and some 50’s hairdoos and generational speech.
The landing site is pretty interesting, and the scenes used in another horror flick is what ive heard.
Blew up twice, the background clouds seem painted on. That geiger counter going off too and they brought the thing inside. I estimate maybe one of the knowledge hungry scienttists might prematurely thaw the alien. Orders came down and they are to thaw the discovery. Probably smart just incase something was to happen. Its kinda like the haunted tomb where the raiders all get mysterious illnesses (cursed).
Movies 1951; “The telegram came in broken messages. Cant get any messages through..”
Movies now, the internet, or cell network down. Its not the call is coming from inside the house, or ‘the line is cut/dead’
Maybe not as much suspense, or a different type so far. The concept of discovering such a thing pretty wild, some type of off-earth artifacts. Even what brought down the craft, that cell imitating ‘thing’, could have taken the last operator of the craft. Im looking forward to seeing if it looks anything like the 82 version, cause that was crazy.

Just commenting on the mess hall it reminds me a bit of a fancy summer camp. The captain and his girlfriend they like to smoke. He like to whip out a couple cigarettes, all stylish.
Tabbaco companies infiltrating film or just props, or a addicted actor.
Im sure thats not unheard of.
Imagine they’re like action! And you’re like nah thanks just had one. Or keep getting the scene wrong and keep having to light up . For the fifth time action!, lights up a smoke..
My comments on the wardrobe. They aint wearing sweatpants and onesies, which i mahy or may not be wearing. Its old fashioned and more chic then today. That is a mild generic statement but applies I think to the ‘pilot’ and ‘love’ interest. That pointy bra is nothing something you see everyday. The winter gear is simply old fashioned but looks familiar. lol
Captain got tied up let his guard down thats silly but a good opener.
Oh i seen the thing! its like a grey alien, and hes got the electric blanket on the ice block.Those pistol clinkey Oh man the alien eating the dogs again. Then now a vegetable intelligence or communication network theory thats awesome, and the journalist is juts so cheezy. And hes got the cleaver. Cinched up belts, the doctor looks the most ridiculous with the pants and jacket, and he wants to talk to the super carrot. The super carrot is awesome just seen that ‘the thing.’
________________________________
Its May 3, the concl. Pt. Math.
_
Theres a big discussion on the science of the plant guy. The doctor is overacting so much it looks ridiculous. Lets see the plant dude regenerates, absorbs bullets, absorbs blood. The doctor has been experimenting and created a planter full of breathing little plants hooked up to some blood plasma. Its a good prop. They’re all baffled. Care to listen doc, hes amused. Its like the wail of a newborn child. My mind is still perfectly clear! All some good lines. The Doc that suggests the visitor is here to start an army, is a good theory but then why crash the ship ?
Now captain need the blood packs, oh, im sure theyre gone. The love interest shes, like: better take a swing at my chin. Anyways now they get word from hq that theyre to protect the plant creature guy until a superior can arrive. But that only comes in the stairway room. Under no circumstance take action against it until my arrival. Finally the flamethrower suggestion or some kerosene lol. Another smoking scene this time the Lt gonna start a fire in the only building in Alaska. Well that all happened fast. That was awesome, and they did end up pretty much burning the place down. That howling monster.
Ok got a plan the monster doesnt burn get organize and go after it. The oil aint getting to the heater and thats around the building back so. Fight the ‘thing’ from the generator room, put on your burnt clothes. The doctor and the news guy, 7 plus the doc and the 2 guardsmen. Maybe whats left of the party behind closed doors but then what about the tall guy. Snyder judge gray execution. Bang and the Geiger counter going off.. now the thing, And the doc sabotage with a gun i knew he was unstable who gave thjat man a pistol. and the doc and the plant guy most epic scene. Hes like science i dont need no stinking science. Then buddy throws the pick axe to make him jump on the the fence, nice the got him telsa style. Turn it off thats inhumane!.
All thats left is a crispy critter and the news press man passes out. That was probably one of the better final, monster scenes ive seen for black and white. The press speech via radio, off the top of the head. A sure way for people to think your crazy is utter the words, ‘flying saucer’ and really mean it.
Now that its over thats a shame. Was pretty good movie. The John Carpenter version is like on steroids compared to this but maybe id watch this one first before the updated one with the crazy effects. Im sure theres some different nuances with the book if I ever get to it. But the story is pretty cool, finding anything from space is just so neat and mysterious. I love the plant dude he listens to the science mans speech hes like rawr nawh! Just kills me. But the thing listens and considers it for a moment and ponders the proposal.
___
Its the 4th May ’20 evening.
It was interesting to hear James Rolfe talk about the original, now im just curious to get the book ill put it on the list. But im glad ive been watching these movies. After hearing Rolfe and other people talk about it makes it more interesting, intriguing. I never noticed such a thing as the interrupting dialogue. I mean honestly i liked em both, the carpenter is just so visceral and crazy that its shocking, your mind just cant believe what its seeing. Makes me appreciate the black and white one that much more compared to then when I watched it initially.

The Thing ’82

Havent watched this many movies in a row in a long time.
Its a treat and nice distraction.
Still usually binge movies or docs about current events.
This one more: ‘Kurt Russel’ and Cinnemassacre suggestions. Thankful for that too cause it takes the choice out of the equation, and seen some awesome movies all month.
Mostly for my entertainment and fodder to write about.
Ok more Kurt Russell, this is gonna be awesome.
Gotta have memories of “The Thing” on Tv.
The ‘thing’ with TV movies, is sometimes you end up missing huge parts and/or halfway through the movie, then the interest sometimes just isnt there.

All I remember walking into this is an arctic facility, sub machine guns, probably a flamethrower and some screaming and the thing its like a stringy monster, maybe an swollen fx eyeball but maybe thats total recall. Highlight of the day so far after other homework. Ok and this time I wont typo Jack instead of Steve.
Opening shot is awesome, that title shot is sick. Imagine Kurt Russell in the ship. Alien gifs in ’82.

This movie is awesome, I think the dog probably has something. Like a parasite about to eat the whole crew up.
Recognize a couple young actors, and looking pretty epic so far.
The choppers and explosions and mystery.
The goggles and the wide brim hat are quite the getup, Kurt seems his usual movie self.
___
Its May 1 2020 5/12 Math break, stuffin food down the gullet. Theres a players league mlb playoff watching tonight. My picks are Snell, Lux, or Smith Jr.
Back to the dog. Creepy movie. Suspenseful, superstitious. There Norwegian not Sweedes very isolated scenes.
Gonna have to check out more John Carpenter, Its like the dog knows so creepy.
Eew they brought that thing back, that seems like a rookie mistake! But the prop is awesome. Im just amazed with that. Eyeball.
Mutt was uttered, hes gonna get it. Cant wait to get a good look at the thing. A well trained creepy dog. Maybe some of that was censored on tv i certainly dont remember that, but the thing is pretty sick! Just so wet slimy and disgusting. The best part is it got away. Some kind of parasitic extra terrestrial thing that attaches to host and its all stringy. It has several eyes. Its the original Blair witch in this home video scene. This movie is great at suspense. Antarctic would be a crazy place to visit. Imagine getting a job on the US Antartica research program.
The spaceship looks pretty painted but thats crazy. Maybe infected the original crew of the craft. Hence the crash. Coors banquet thats neat, be re-released not too recently. I knew it.
Mutt gets him, that negative connotation, im sure thing just wants a friend. Nasty little slug creature they’re all infected. Im trying to think of what the new theme could be for the May Cinemassacre and I cant guess, maybe microbes.I thought (d)ogs, Monsters maybe..

I recognize the beard guy, hes infected forsure. Hes got such a calm demeanor. Maybe its the end of the movie I remember. (scalpel)
I like how, the director doesn’t strand them right away its really gradual and that leads to some scarier moments. I counted atleast 3 injection scenes. The long johns. RJ Mcree. Mcreedee
The monologue. I like the angles dooorways shadows. There isnt too many other pop culture references,hard to tell its 82. Way more tech than the barber pole from planet of apes more dialogue. Expressions. The crew all looks genuinely scared. Grim . I mean fiction is a thing i struggle with but here I find Mcreedee looks pretty serious compared to Jack, Steve. Here RJ employs buddy system to try to track down the thing, its a good strategy but I think still something unplanned gonna happen. Mmmm box of milk duds. The table scene thing is awesome. The tubes.The elimination process. That dynamite and I didnt expect the chill guy, that was crazy. Some scenes seem new to me. I wonder if its because of the tv movie had content cut. Setting the dynamite. Forgot about that dude. That was a good one. Cute. Nice Flip.
That ending.
That movie was awesome to watch, and stringy and tooby tubes are good adjectives for that thing. Maybe the tv movie part ruined it for me the first several times but watching whole thing in a couple sittings recently was good. Not chintzy on the the monster scenes neither, once it gets going pretty sick.

Planet of the Apes ’68

All right late sixties cant wait.
Ive seen this years ago.
Fifty two year old movie now.
Four astronauts on the most retro spaceship ever intro cryogenic freeze.
One of em is smoking gross cigar, and just leaves the butt on the spaceship counter, thats my style. Then he puts it in the spacesuit pocket for later.
Outside the spaceship stars are nearly bouncing off the windshield thats awesome.
According to the alarm clock displays, time dilation theyre never coming back to Earth.
The sleeping area is some meant to be futuristic sliding glass panel, the mattress is formed to the body the most claustrophobic sleeping arrangement ever.
Not sure what happens to the space ship but the team ends up crash landing through a psychedelic scene at the grand canyon.
Sinking, going, gone. That scene is pretty sweet, then they seem well prepared.
How bout that sinister laugh when the crewman puts up a little USA flag.
The moment they are out of space its pretty scenic and the water looks like a good swim, if it wasnt so much of a survival situation. The rocks are nice red color.
Grand canyon amazing I gotta check that out.
The film locations are above average for what ive been watching lately.
So many light years from the precious planet, and Heston is cool with that he says so in the begging, like a captains log.
The other crewmates and the previous casualty. Not so much.
Love those aluminum backpacks.
Love these wide shots in the dersert with so much depth and can see for miles.
Oh man that would suck being a caveman.
. The scenes and sets are elaborate and the ape city and zoo facilities are great.
Mouth looks kinda weird but theres so many apes in costumee they outnumber the humans.
Its convenient hes shot in the neck so he cant speak, makes for some good suspense.
– Alright its the next day.
Lots has happened I especially like the monkey court.
This movie is awesome its just like looking in a mirror on some of the silliest aspects of society.
Like Dr Zaius is intelligent but hes deceitfull and misleads the other apes.
Plus hes got that face you just wanna grab his hair and throw him in a wrestling corner turn-buckle.
Yea cant say im a fan of the leather outfits or whatever, but the costumes and props are awesome in this film. I kept wondering how they made those cages.
Some interesting conversations between Heston and Dr. Zaius.
I love that ; Hes a Man! He has no Ape law rights.
Get your hands off me you damned dirty ape!

The cave scene and artifacts, I wonder what Carl Sagan would think of this movie. I bet you he had a laugh maybe.
Well im not sure what else to write about this film but it leads to so many sequels its kindof crazy.
Its just such a funny concept with the humans and apes role reversed. I mean its not funny for the animals of this planet, but as a concept its good and makes me sympathetic.
Other scenes im like bash that ape!

Simpsons, the troy maclure monkey songs are stuck in my head. Its almost equally as culturaly significant to me.

“Oh youll never make a monkey outta meeeee!”

The rifles are cool, theyre like covered with a shrink wrap or something.
Just a small detail that makes it look like theyre on a alien planet.
“they ate all their food supply in the forest and now trhey have to come eat from our farms” its just a awesome statement that highlights the stupidity when a human says it.
If the chimps could talk theyd tell it to your face and still probably wouldnt listen.
You can see Hestons reaction after they lobotomize his friend, is probably a common experience for the apes of science.
I really cant stop thinking also about how smart chimps are and what a crazy alternate universe that mirrors alot of silly things still seen today.
I was conflicted with whether a human can learn something from chimp but I completely agree now, you have to be egoist and ignorant to think not.

Ok I guess thats pretty much wrapping up. The statue of liberty scene is pretty cool.
Thats an allusion when you see the torch maybe not recognize right away, but the crown 100%
To tour some of the locations of this film would be iconic.
Huge budget im sure, and the special effects seemed seamless compared to Kong. Kong was more fun though.

“That is of course, if anyone’s listening.”
