Please Don't Eat My Mother!, a review by Jimmy




Title : Please Don't Eat My Mother! (1973)

Overview
Henry Fudd (Buck Kartalian), an overage mama's boy and part-time Peeping Tom, is the proud owner of two very perculiar plants he keeps locked in his bedroom. Named Adam and Eve and looking like overgrown Venus flytraps with giant mouths full of razor-sharp teeth, the plants not only talk, but eat humans - especially the sexy centerfold kind.

My Impression
Not really an horror movie, but horror comedy count too and since I wanted to watch this movie. First time that I watch this one, but since this is an Harry Novak production I was already sure to like it. Like I've said this is not really an horror movie, but there are two carnivor plants in it. Buck Kartalian is the star of this one and he is the best actor in those seventies genre movies (you probably know who he is, but not his name since he is mostly a character actor). Not surprisingly he gives a really good performance in this film and it's important since the movie success depend of him. RenĂ© Bond is certainly a plus too (what can I say... I love those seventies type of girls) and she is as good than sexy as usual, this is her first movie after her breasts surgery so for a fan this is interesting. This is a Novak film so there is a lot of nudity and fake sex, but sometimes it doesn't look that fake since it was common on his production to mix the real and fake. The story is interesting and funny too. Not a film for everybody and not a familly film since the nudity is complete and it had frontal male nudity too. 

Rating :

Number of film watch : 25

The League of Gentlemen (1960), a review by Antares


The League of Gentlemen (1960) 72/100 - Thoroughly enjoyable crime caper from director Basil Dearden, mirroring another film from 1960, with a similar plot line, Ocean's Eleven. But where the Sinatra film is a breezy romp with booze, broads, ballads and a big heist, Dearden plays up the military methodology of the gang's planning and execution of the robbery. The humor is all very smart and dry, something you expect from a film made during this era in British film making. It all seems to be going so well until the ending, which left me a bit perplexed as to why someone during the production, couldn't see the gaping plot hole at the end.

It's a small thing, but it ruins the ending of what was a delightful, dry caper film.

What the color coding means...

Teal = Masterpiece
Dark Green = Classic or someday will be
Lime Green = A good, entertaining film
Orange = Average
Red = Cinemuck
Brown = The color of crap, which this film is

Tom's Random Star Trek Reviews, a review by Tom


Star Trek: The Next Generation
7.11 Parallels
Writer: Brannon Braga (Writer)
Director: Robert Wiemer
Cast: Patrick Stewart (Capt. Jean-Luc Picard), Jonathan Frakes (Cmdr. William T. Riker), LeVar Burton (Lt. Cmdr. Geordi La Forge), Michael Dorn (Lieutenant Worf), Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher), Marina Sirtis (Counselor Deanna Troi), Brent Spiner (Lt. Commander Data), Wil Wheaton (Wesley Crusher), Patti Yasutake (Nurse Ogawa), Mark Bramhall (Gul Nador), Majel Barrett (Computer Voice (voice))

Worf jumps between different parallel universes. It's fun to see different realities of the Enterprise crew. For example Worf's reaction when Deanna is coming onto him because they are married in the reality he jumped into.
