This is a *mild* plug for my Girlfriends film reviews, but as it wasn't directly related to Vidyagames, I don't think anyone would mind too much if I posted a link, and on top of that, maybe start some discussion on old/weird/classic films while doing that!
My girlfriend & I both share a love/hate relationship with cheesy / weird horror and action films;
Zombie flicks, Kung Fu movies, 80's action films, bascally anything weird or what many would classify as 'pulp'!!!
Her reviews go under 'Poison Popcorn' (there must be over 30 reviews in the backlog)...
The latest film we watched was 'Gor' (this is the plug!)
It was awful, as you can imagine, but still contained some charm believe it or not!
Now, this is where the discussion comes in...
Considering how 'bad' these films are, the budgets are TINY small compared to todays efforts, yet they still remain a great fun watch!
We have recently seen a resurgance of pulp / cheap or exploitation films;
Nazi's at the center of the Earth
But do these titles really hold up against such classics as:
With Ubisoft also releasing Blood Dragon, are we trying to re-awaken that classic 80's style of action / horror & comedy? If so, I say:
Bring it the fuck on!!!!
Does anyone else on the forum have any 'stone cold' classics they remember? or stories of films they were too scared to watch?!
I remember looking at this VHS cover in my local video shop:
and being too fucking scared to ever watch it!!! DAT CHIMP!!!!? O__o
So... Please check some of the reviews (they are all tounge in cheek bare in mind, not critical reviews), and please share any good films we may have missed! :)
recently i've been watching a lot of the Italian Zombie films and they have been AWESOME!!!
City of the Living Dead
...And am now trying to catch up with some of the Dario Argento movies! All great stuff!
I hope more companies like Ubisoft bring back the 80's vibe!!! :)
