In My Own Words:
An aging baby-boomer with a weakness for old movies, especially Westerns and monster movies. Gained much movie watching experience at the old Strand Theater in St. Charles, Missouri. I also enjoy all types of music and reading books by the dozen. I'm currently working on the best personal home library of books, movies, and music to will to the Nation someday.

Reading, creative writing, movies. Antique shopping with my sepcial someone. Listening to all kinds of music.

Teenage Monster <b>DVD</b> ~ Anne Gwynne

1.0 out of 5 stars One Bad Movie., June 30 2004
Drift down to the bottom of the cheesy sci-fi/horror movie barrel and look around. Among the chuckle-headed efforts of Ed Wood and several of the lesser Godzilla flicks, you will find this movie. Burned as child by radiation from a meteor that crashed in the Old West, a deformed teenaged recluse displays behavior problems. His long-suffering mother uses her wealth to keep his existence a secret. This unfortunate youth (played by a middle-aged man) resembles the Wolf Man. As a low budget anomaly, the legendary Jack Pierce did the makeup. Despite the hirsute look, the kid behaves more as Frankenstein's monster, committing acts of violence through his sad wish to fit in and make friends… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to Basic 007., June 28 2004
When peculiar things transpire on an obscure Jamaican island called Crab Key, M sends Bond out to investigate. Penguin Books has re-issued the James Bond novels and stories written by the incomparable Ian Fleming. Note that this is the original series, not a well-intentioned imitation. For the uninitiated, James Bond is the apex of fictional secret agents. He defines Cold War espionage without dreary realism. Bond is an iron fist in a velvet glove. Bond is a good man to put on a tough job. Fleming blends the intelligence of Dorothy Sayers with the hard-boiled leanness of Dashiell Hammett. Snobbery is evident. Ian Fleming's books are escapist nonsense, and great fun. The stories are… Read more
Bride of the Monster (Full Screen) <b>DVD</b> ~ Bela Lugosi

Ed Wood films cannot be described without resorting to pejoratives. "So bad, it's funny" doesn't capture the essence of this movie. That speaks volumes, considering the many examples of schlock cinema that is out there in cheesy movie land. Bela Lugosi, regardless of the serious merits of his actor's work record, has the dubious distinction of starring in some of the lowest of the low budget turkeys of all time. As Varnoff, the crazed scientist, he seeks to create a master race of atomic giants. Bela's lab/dungeon displays a flat wall that is painted to suggest rock. Note the prominent sink, cabinets, and refrigerator that look as if they emerged from a Good Housekeeping ad… Read more
