Kitsch Done Right: S.H.E.

Part II of III (there's only one more after this, I promise)

Listen to this Dick.

SHE really is a B movie. But it sticks. Not just because Sandahl Bergman represents a certain kind of a 'babe' quality that somehow 'does it' for a certain part of the population.

The movie sticks for anther reason. And if anyone knows why, they need to be locked up and heavily sedated after being burned at the stake a few times.

 A Nork
Borrowed in the spirit of Fair Use, as it says here somewhere on this site.
And what the Norks believe.

For a true post-apocalyptic hangover that feeling that most people would be embarrassed about, this is just a little taste of what is in store: 

Do not watch this. Please.

Somehow the movie delivers virtually all the way through. Which creeps me out in a way.

Now, before my internet-assisted virtual IQ goes negative and the death-threats start rolling in, I will go for a walk.

Kitsch Done Right: Six-String Samurai

Part I of III*

We're going 'link-lite' on this one because of time-constraints. Could definitely flesh it out with some cross-referencing that takes it deeper, which wouldn't be that hard, but...but...whatever.

B movies are hard to get right. There's an art to it...really. At least that is my belief. Only a session in Room 101 can change that.

Yeah, there are tonnes of "straight to video" types of films out there, but there are a few "films" that somehow are able to go beyond, doing so much more with so much less that you gotta' kind'a nod and maybe even smile. A cult classic.

Which brings us, Kimo Sabe, to a film that has Fallout written all over it. While it might-seem-to-just-barely-manage-to-get there, it is worth watching to the end once. At least once.
