Son of Dracula (1943), a review by addicted2dvd



Son of Dracula (1943)
Carpathian Count Alucard is invited to the U.S. by a young "morbid" heiress (Katherine Caldwell). Her boyfriend (Frank Stanley) and local officials are suspicious of the newcomer, who is interested in the "virile" soil of the new world.

My Thoughts:
To me this is just an OK sequel. I enjoyed it well enough I guess... but it just wasn't as good as the previous ones. Count Alucard is played by Lon Chaney, Jr. and in my opinion... he is much better as The Wolf Man then he is as Dracula. Quality wise I have no complaints what so ever. Both the audio and the video is in very good condition.

Waterhole #3, a review by Rogmeister




Waterhole #3 (1967)  95m

Directed by William Graham
Cast: James Coburn, Carroll O'Connor, Claude Akins, Timothy Carey, Harry Davis, Bruce Dern
Balladeer: Roger Miller

This is a satirical western involving stolen army gold and the various people who are after it including conman Coburn, sheriff O'Connor (and his daughter), army deserter Akins and others.  And just when you think you know who's going to wind up with it, there's another twist in the storyline.  At the very end, we still aren't shown who winds up with the loot as one last chase has begun and "The End" shows up on the screen...you get to make your own decision who winds up with the gold.  Throughout the movie, there is a song that goes on, a ballad sung by Roger Miller.  I enjoyed that, but I've always liked his music...someone who isn't crazy about that kind of music might not be as appreciative as I.  Overall, I enjoyed the film...it's not quite your normal western.   ;D

My PILOT Marathon, a review by Rich


Pulling - Series 1

Episode 1
29 year old Donna comes to to the sudden realisation, that she doesn't want to get married to her boyfriend Karl - one day before the wedding...



A sitcom about a thirtysomething woman who ditches her reliable fiance to move in with a group of single girls. Donna isn't dull, she isn't ordinary and she's definitely meant for big things in life, so dumping her ultra-dependable and slightly beige fiancé Karl just days before their wedding isn't such a major thing for her.

A BBC3 series that was missed by many, but for the few that have given it a chance, the reward was a hilarious, black and original comedy, in the mould of Gavin & Stacey or Shameless, and a better series than many that have plagued the major channels in recent years. Series 2 has just finished, and I believe it has now been scrapped.
The comedy revolves around three crass and common girls flat sharing in London, a desperate ex fiancé, and the many cringeworthy scenarios they find themselves in. It is most definately adult humour, from the very first scene in the pilot! It is extremely well written, some great acting, and storylines to make your belly hurt from laughing. This should have been a major hit, but without the mass appeal of the more mainstream family-friendly comedy programmes, it was never given much of a chance on the lesser Beeb channel.
Completely underrated and overlooked, I highly recommend it.
 ;D
