I saw that AGES ago and remember it being very good. Two Ashby films I've seen that I know of are Being There and Harold and Maude. Didn't like H&M but Being There is amazing!

PRIME CUT is great! I have a poster for it & pressbook. Very sleazy & you get to see a young SIssy Spacek nude. "Together They're Murder" is the line on the poster which is where I got the artwork/title for the cd-r that came with special ed of the MANIA/THE RITA boxset. I love '70s crime movies!

Mikko, find EMPEROR OF THE NORTH with Lee Marvin. You'll like it. It's about hobos hopping rides on trains. Very violent. Classic '70s.

EMPEROR OF THE NORTH
complete masterpiece!!!! I have discovered it after a friend's suggestion 4/5 years ago and I am still speachless.
anything with sissy spacek in it deserves to be wacthed... and she helped to produce Lynch's Eraserhead!

Going to watch Blow-Up tonight for the first time. I've heard good things and it looks like it's right up my alley.

Watched Escape from New York last weekend again. Such a classic. Sat in pitch black and had the shit cranked on my big speaker set-up so the gunshots were about loud enough to blow out your ears and the helicopters sounded like they were ready to raid the neighbors. FULL IMMERSION!!!

Another essential 70's movie (with sissy spacek): Badlands (1973).
Based on the Charles Starkweather and Caril-Ann Fugate murders in 1958.

I read several extremely bad reviews about Sucker Punch. It got like two stars everywhere I looked at, and reviews claiming it is totally sexist bullshit made to sleazy old men to get kicks. Utter objectification of females and lots of violence and pretty fragile chicks. Well, I felt like, I must be in target audience then! If some female intelligentsia of movie critics feel insulted, it can't be that bad...

that sounds interesting.
I am not embarrassed to admit, I'm pretty big fan of US/Hollywood movies. Of course not ALL kinds, but that some of the most remarkable films are from there, and lightyears ahead of many "cult films". But lately been wondering where are the good hollywood films now?
..
. .
Even re-watching the same thing, is more fruitful than checking out what plays now in local cinemas...

Well, I'm in half and half about saying that I should have learned my lessons about contemporary blockbusters, but in other hand, there was some entertaining factors too. First of all, the movie is shitty. Story is pretty lame, characters are most of all empty sobstories. There simply isn't enough of supposed sleaze and degrading of women. What we do have plenty, is utmost computer EFX eye-candy, exploding zeppelins, nazi robots, castle sized dragons, petite main character in sweet sex-shop school uniform battling through simple computer game like scene through with just about zero excitement and challenge. This is what it is. Mix of computer game and music video, with all the themes & ideas 100% match for the nerd picture posting forums where ingredients are: Fight game scenes, tits & slim waists, japanese pop culture fetish, sad looking petite chicks. All we would need is XXX rated version with couple references to Goatse & pedo-bear, and this would be like most calculated target audience satisfaction for such crowd!?
Good thing was, that I went to cinema, and some teenage boy approached if I want to buy ticket from him. I asked what's the price. He had his christmas gift tickets that were going to out-date in 4 days, so I got it for -40% of normal price, hah..

Then again, when you think about cinema prices, with luck, you might be able to score 1-3 dvd's with the same price. I think getting special edition of BLUE SUNSHINE fall into that price range. 1976 horror story with nice explotative & moralistic tone. 60's students had taken some bad LSD called Blue Sunshine and 10 years later it makes their hair fall out and going all berzerk and killing people. Congressman has sold this stuff in his teens, is easy reference to corruption of high position politicians. Men and women engaging into acts of violence. Stab, burning corpses in oven, etc. Simple "detective" type of story by one friend of these. Few nice assumptions who could be old users, but in the end very straight forward film doing all it has to do in 90 minutes. Funny ending with subtitles explaining rest of the story. Very good music. Avantgarde classical possession in all the hard and oppressive moments.
This special version has also Jeff Liebermann shortmovie "The Ringer" which was sponsored by Pepsi (!?!) and quite funny remarks about powers behind corruption of youth cultures. Drugs, body jewelry, music business scams... Worth to watch too.

BLUE SUNSHINE is cool as are his other films, JUST BEFORE DAWN and especially SQUIRM.

I watched a lot of the trailers with stuffy British intro's on the VIDEO NASTIES boxset last night. Best intro was from Stephen Thrower (Coil) about FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE. He mentions the producer was a cheapskate. WHen I recommended the film to a friend, he researched it & found out the producer is Jewish so I got a laugh out of Thrower confirming it. The story is pretty good too... F.F.Y.L. is awesome and makes a great double-feture with GOODBYE UNCLE TOM.

HANNA is suppose to be pretty cool for a Hollywood movie. I don't go to the movies; everything hits dvd so fast that it's usually just a few months of waiting.

13 ASSASSINS by T.Miike is really good & Wednesday night I'll be seeing HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN which looks ok but I'm not expecting much...

william friedkin's RAMPAGE. about schizo young killer who drinks the blood of his victims and his trial, unfortunately most of the movie is about the trial and whether he should get death penalty or go to a mental hospital. still worth seeing, rough direction by the always great friedkin and there is a short but cool eye candy scene when the cops visit the killer's basement filled with body parts, caged animals, nazi flags and cut ups. i took some screenshots

I've been told Hobo with a shotgun is good. I have both, FFYL and Goodbye Uncle Tom on dvd.

Is Rampage  Friedkin's one?
If am not wrong it was supposed to be a tv movie O_O

Vice Squad. Never heard of before somebody mentioned it here and it is definitely my piece of cake. Despite the terrible 80's haircuts some parts are memorable.

VICE SQUAD is pretty good. It's a film I saw on late night cable and remember it as super sleazy but lost some of the sleaze when I re-visited it on dvd. Still, it's a cool film: "Blink motherfucker and you'll die in the dark"!

RAMPAGE is Friedkin. I saw it once on video & remember very little. I do have a soundtrack LP for it.

I'm watching trailers on VIDEO NASTIES. Specifically, POSSESSION, right now. Stephen Thrower mentions that every actor in the film is a lunatic right from the get-go & that's exactly what I remember about it.

But you didn't touch on the most important part of RAMPAGE- it's pro-death penalty message was only recently revealed! The cut was made a couple decades ago, but I don't think it was ever officially released till recently. And no, it was not a TV movie.

I watched Blue Sunshine over the winter and loved it- great movie. Watched the ELVIRA disc though, which may have persuaded my enjoyment.

Hobo With A Shotgun is not "good" , but it's great fun . You can't miss with Rutger Hauer shooting people's heads.
Addio Zio Tom is one of the best movies ever made
