Product Description

Amazon.ca

When Kate "Ma" Barker (Shelley Winters) robs a bank with her four beloved sons, she's got a great opening line: "We're gonna play Simon Says, and this," she says, pointing to her Tommy gun, "is Simon." You gotta love the ol' broad's moxie, and you gotta love this Roger Corman classic for serving it up so shamelessly. Capitalizing on the impact of Bonnie and Clyde while adding the more perversely exploitative elements of Corman's drive-in fare, this Depression-era shoot-'em-up is prime viewing for its early appearance by Robert De Niro (making his fifth film) and Corman stalwarts like Don Stroud, but it's Winters's over-the-top portrayal of Ma Barker (very loosely based on fact) that gives the movie its rather unseemly edge. Alternately sharing her bed with each of her sons (as if they were teddy bears made for her incestuous pleasure), and twisting morality to suit the needs of her homicidal brood, this gun-toting matriarch is a deviously amusing detour on Winters's weight-gaining road to The Poseidon Adventure.

The movie gains character from its rural Arkansas locations, but the redneck flavor is entirely theatrical, and while De Niro learns to shine for the camera, his performance as glue-sniffing, dope-shooting Lloyd Barker shows hints of future stardom. Corman gets good work from the entire cast, in fact, even if his formula calls for sex, violence, or vice every 10 minutes. And while it would be a mistake to elevate Bloody Mama above its trashy aspirations, it certainly earns its place among such '70s gangster fodder as Big Bad Mama and Boxcar Bertha. Made at a time when movies were enjoying their liberation from the confines of good taste, Bloody Mama is an enjoyable wallow in bad taste. --Jeff Shannon

I would have preferred "Logan's Run" for story number two but we get what we can.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wilde in the Streets:

FOURTEEN OR FIGHT

Long before "never trust anyone over thirty" a final solution was proposed in this classic movie.

"Max Frost" (Christopher Jones) has figured out the fundamental flaw in the U.S. Government. "AGE", yep those old fogies are too stuck in their ways to run a government of the people. So with a little correction this can be amended. Be sure to see the unique solution for adjusting the government and helping people to retire a tad early.

Now the real question that "Max" must face is what is old? Be sure to listen to ""The Shape of Things to Come." And look for Bill Mummy of "Lost in Space"

Gas S S S:

Hold your nose

Gas is let loose upon the world that kills anyone over 25 years old.

How does it know?

Packed with actors that on one has heard of or seen since.

An implausible movie about what could have been yet well done and with a humourous ending. A great look into the past which portrays a lot of what the youth movement of the late sixties was actually like. A very interesting take on politics as well.
