Robo Geisha, a review by dfmorgan


Robo Geisha


Year: 2009
Director: Noboru Iguchi
Cast: Aya Kiguchi, Hitomi Hasebe, Takumi Saito, Taro Shigaki

Overview: GET READY for the most unashamedly over-the-top and deliriously inventive cinematic experience of your life, as the Japanese masters of movie mayhem achieve a brand new level of JAW-DROPPING CRAZINESS.

To help them achieve their goal of taking over the world, a megalomaniac Japanese businessman and his son recruit a vicious gang of Geisha assassins. These include two feisty sisters with an amazing range of surgically added weapons.

But when one of these Robo-Geishas refuse to kill an innocent group of ex-employees, its butt-blades versus wig napalm and machine breasts against killer-cleaver socks as the assassins take on the Geisha's in one of the most mind-bending movie battles of all time.

Throw in the buildings that bleed, the Giant Castle Robot and the Breast Milk From Hell, and you have a wonderfully insane Kamikaze movie that will have you laughing out loud!

Watched: 9th Jul. 2010
My Thoughts: From the director of The Machine Girl comes this addition to the Japanese Gore Fest. Two sisters become part of gang of Geisha assassins whose bodies have been enhanced with add-on weapons. So instead of drill bras and machine gun arms we have machine gun breasts, breast milk from hell, cleaver socks, armpit swords, mouth swords, butt ninja stars, butt swords and wig napalm. Also the castle of the evil company turns into a Giant Robot Castle leaving a trail of bleeding buildings, in the tradition of Japanese Gore Fest with fountains of blood. Our heroine also transforms into a tank at one point. Stupidly enjoyable  :)

My Rating: Slightly better than The Machine Girl so a 3

Invasion of the Saucer Men, a review by GSyren


TitleInvasion of the Saucer Men (8-017229-467394)
DirectorEdward L. Cahn
ActorsSteven Terrell, Gloria Castillo, Frank Gorshin, Raymond Hatton, Lyn Osborn
Produced1957 in United States
Runtime67 minutes
AudioItalian Dolby Digital Mono, English Dolby Digital Mono
SubtitlesItalian
OverviewA teenage couple making out in the woods accidentally runs over an alien creature with their car. The creature's hand falls off, but it comes alive, and, with an eye growing out of it, begins to stalk the teens. Meanwhile, Joe the town drunk wants to store the body in his refrigerator, but some of the alien's buddies inject alcohol into his system, and Joe dies of an overdose.
My thoughtsThe first time I saw this in the cinema back in the sixties I thought it was absolutely terrible. I have since come to re-evaluate it, and I find it mildly amusing. The design of the saucer men – one of Paul Blaisdell's better efforts – has become quite iconic. I think part of the reason I didn't like it initially was that I expected a serious science fiction (or even horror) story, since the Swedish title translates to “The Crawling Hand”. It's a silly little movie, and if you watch it with that in mind, it can be rather enjoyable. Unfortunately it's not easy to find, which is why I had to get this Italian release, and the quality is just slightly better than VHS.

Samantha Who?: The Complete First Season, a review by addicted2dvd


     Samantha Who?: The Complete First Season (2007/United States)

Samantha...Who? That's what Sam Newly, irresistibly played by Christina Applegate, would like to know! Upon waking up from an eight-day coma, she can't remember a thing — not her boyfriend, her parents, her job, not even herself. Although some things are best left forgotten, Sam is determined to dig up the "goods" on herself. With a little help from her ex-boyfriend, ex-doorman, her too (make that two) few friends and slightly odd parents, Samantha gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become a bad-girl-gone-good.

Indulge yourself in the ultimate do-over fantasy with the fresh new hit comedy Samantha Who? — The Complete First Season, starring Emmy® Award-winning Christina Applegate, and a hilariously quirky cast of supporting characters including Jean Smart, Jennifer Esposito and Kevin Dunn.

My Thoughts:
This is a set I just had given to me... an early birthday present. Never seeing a single episode before getting the set. I found it to be a pretty good series... but far from great. The show actually had to grow on me a bit to get the 3.5 rating I decided to give it. After the first few episodes I was thinking between a 2.5 and a 3. But it did start growing on me. And would probably had grown on me some more if it wasn't such a short first season. But I did end up enjoying it enough to want to get the second season and complete the series. I liked seeing Melissa McCarthy in something earlier in her career. I only know her as one of the stars of the sitcom Mike & Molly. The set has a few nice extra features. I didn't listen to the audio commentary (on the pilot) yet. B ut I did check out the blooper reel and deleted scenes. Both sections was a little shorter then I would  normally like. And the blooper real... which is usually one of my favorite extras... left me disappointed. It was nothing more then some of the cast members getting fits of laughter while trying to do their lines. And then very few of that. Over-all I would say this is a cute show... but don't expect too much from it.


My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5
