B-movie heaven Dec 8 2009
By K. Swanson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
4.6 stars

The first review here makes me realize how good we have it with the Alamo (actually Alamos; there's a bunch in town now). We've been watching random collections of clips just like this before most every showing of any movie since the original Alamo on 4th was crankin' in the '90s, and I've just always taken it for granted and assumed that every town has a rep theatre that does stuff like this.

I guess not! For that we can say thanks to the Alamo founders, Tim and Carrie League, and all the film freaks who put these things together. They done good, and continue to do it.

This collection really shows off the endless amount of cinematic cheese that has surfaced from the primordial b-movie auteur muck and then disappeared over the decades. And believe it, there's lots more stuff like this in the Alamo vaults! I've seen some reeeeally obscure stuff in the previews, and with luck there'll be another Alamo dvd (or three) in this series.

Sex! Murder!! Mayhem!!! Coming soon to a drive-in near you...

Best of the series! July 11 2011
By YetAnotherJames - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
If you're new to this series, start with Volume 5. It's the most entertaining of all, and it will be the best gauge for you to decide if you'd like to expand your collection with volumes 1 through 4. Volume 1 is no slouch, but from the very beginning ("Chuck" Heston explaining the MPAA rating system while playing tennis) Volume 5 is pure entertainment.

Another bonus is that the trailers are clustered together by genre; so, for example, if you don't like the Kung fu trailers, you can just skip ahead a few chapters and you'll be on to new territory.

Totally Tubular Nov. 10 2009
By crunkyteen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Synapse's 42nd St Forever trailer comps have always been insanely entertaining but I have to concur with the previous reviewer when he says this volume ups the ante. This is without a doubt the most "out there" of the series -- well, except for maybe the XXX one. I haven't even heard of half of these films (esp. the kung fu titles -- whoa, check out that underage face plant at the end of LUCKY SEVEN!) but I guarantee if you like this sort of thing, you won't be disappointed. I even enjoyed the commentary.

Fiendish Film Forever! Oct. 20 2014
By Akira Ford Leone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Remember The Alamo! Synapse Films has taken us on a journey to the past through their superb 42nd Street Forever collections, and this edition proves to be the best yet. Exploitation films tend to not get a lot of love from the more stuff shirt film historians. Said historians often brush them aside as cheap smut that has no artistic or cultural merit. I vehemently disagree, but this is a review of a product, not grounds for an academic debate.

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema have proudly put their stamp on this DVD edition, but not just in name only. Many of these fantastic trailers are culled from the hallowed halls of AGFA (American Genre Film Archive), a non-profit storage and restoration house for 35mm cult films, some of which are available ONLY in that format. As such, some of the trailers on the DVD have poor quality, but I wouldn't say they "suffer" from it. If anything, the deterioration, discolorations, pops, fizzles, and crackles only add to the flavor and the experience.

Watching these trailers really does take you through a window of time, to an era FAR different than the film climate of today. Countless researchers, fans, buffs, and historians have expounded on that point in time, and with words and love that shame any attempt I could make to do the same. Simply put, these trailers are fascinating to watch. The sheer brashness, boldness, and indeed political incorrectness is a sight to behold. Having actually seen a few of the full-length movies whose trailers are compiled on here, it's worth noting that the marketing for films hasn't changed much for the last 50 or so years. Some of the movies would live up to the "promise" of the trailers, others would deviate in ways good, bad, and strange.

It doesn't matter if you're a scholar or someone looking for some fun. This DVD provides entertainment for folks of many walks of life. There's also some great special features, for anyone who could, for some strange reason, be bored with what's on display here. There's a running commentary track by Tim League, founder and CEO of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, co-founder and co-creator of Fantastic Fest, in addition to being the man responsible for AGFA, along with Alamo programmers Lars Nilsen and Zack Carlson. While they do have a few yuks with the trailers, they also discuss how they acquired some of the trailers, the process for restoration, and which are some of their favorites to screen at Alamo locations. There's also a 30-minute docu titled "Remember The Alamo" that provides a peak at some of the Texas locations. There are interviews not just with League, but employees and guests. It shows the fantastic film community that develops among everyone, demonstrating that Alamo Drafthouse is one of THE penultimate film theaters in this country. For some of you out there who fret about the lack of an Alamo in their town, worry not. I'm a Yonkers resident, and just last year my nirvana opened in my city. There are plans for CA locations as well. So if an Alamo can open in a Westchester County city, then by god they can open ANYWHERE. In the meantime, enjoy this plethora of cinematic delights. You won't regret it. Of that I can guaran-damn-tee.

Entertaining from start to finish! Dec 21 2012

I've found this item in the series a great point for further exploration for my grindhouse appetite! After noting the titles and doing further research, I'm able to take the wheat from the chaff to expand my 70s movie collection. Essential.
