Johnny Got His Gun (1971) movie poster film dalton trumbo

Jeepers creepers, what can you say! How deep can a film go? Seriously this is an emotional thought-provoking, haunting journey into the human soul. What happens to the human mind when that is all you are, just a mind?

Tagline – The most shattering experience you’ll ever live.

The Last Wave (1977) Mystical Magical Aboriginal Dreams & Ju-Ju Frogs

The Last Wave (1977) poster peter weir richard chamberlain movie film

You know what, I really should read the descriptions of the films I watch! I had imagined from the title and the cover image this movie was going to be a surfing drama, oh how wrong could I be. I guess it makes it so much more fun when the crazy starts to go down and that’s pretty much the first scene. Continue reading “The Last Wave (1977) Mystical Magical Aboriginal Dreams & Ju-Ju Frogs”

No Blade of Grass (1970) British Eco Disaster Savagery

I’m not sure what is worse? The absolute devastation and total armageddon carnage or folk singer Roger Whittaker singing the theme tune? Hehe I only jest as I’m actually quite liking the cheesy ditty with it’s strings, flute and Rogers deep vocal tones singing of pure doom. Continue reading “No Blade of Grass (1970) British Eco Disaster Savagery”

Killer of Sheep (1978) This Bitter Earth

KILLER OF SHEEP (1977)

I have to start off with 5 F-Bombs with the last F-Bomb being stretched right out to last at least 10 seconds. How can a film be so devastatingly filled with brooding sadness and doom but equally hit you with such incredible deep innocent sweetness? It shouldn’t be possible but somehow director and writer Charles Burnett creates the impossible with Killer Of SheepContinue reading “Killer of Sheep (1978) This Bitter Earth”

Across 110th Street (1972) Bobby Womack To Jackie Brown

Across 110th Street (1972) movie film score soundtrack record LP bobby womack

I’ve had this soundtrack since I was bout 16 years old. Bobby Womack writes and sings the title anthem Across 110th Street with just so much heart and passion that it’s not surprising it got picked up to feature on future soundtracks later on down the line. Most notably and incredibly well used in QT’s Jackie Brown but it also turned up in American Gangster with Denzel WashingtonContinue reading “Across 110th Street (1972) Bobby Womack To Jackie Brown”

The Last Run (1971) My Grandad, George C Scott The Getaway Driver

The Last Run (1971) George C Scott soundtrack film movie vinyl record lp score

George C Scott is my Grandad, well he has always reminded me of him, the look and mannerisms make him a close doppelganger. So whenever I get to see George C Scott in a new to me film I can’t help but feel the love for my Grandad. Continue reading “The Last Run (1971) My Grandad, George C Scott The Getaway Driver”

The American Friend (1977) A Cowboy In Hamburg

Haha I was totally oblivious to the fact that The American Friend was another adaptation on the famous psychological thriller novel by Patricia Highsmith about Tom Ripley. It wasn’t until I went to write this post that it all came crashing round me with a “Doh! Wolfy you should of known that” moment. Continue reading “The American Friend (1977) A Cowboy In Hamburg”

Been rinsing the Burt Lancaster films this week with three in a row. First up was Go Tell The Spartans followed by Atlantic City.

Go Tell the Spartans (1978) Skirmishes, Ambushes And Booby Traps

This was a great surprise! Was not expecting to enjoy this as much as I did. Thought it be OK but had it chalked down as a low budget Vietnam war film, most probably by the numbers. It’s was getting late, I’ll watch the first hour to see if I like it. Two hours later I’m going to bed at way past midnight and up for work at 5.30, oopft I was mashed up but worth it especially when I saw these three classics pop up ……..
