Ah, the strange place that is my mind.
I sometimes do actually wonder if there isn’t something wrong with me. Maybe it’s because I was a Preemie (2 months early. Had I known what was waiting for me, I’d have stayed the full 9), maybe a few too many blows to the head, my midichlorian count is off, I don’t know.
I’m talking mostly (mostly) about my tastes in films this time. My tastes (such as they are) in music has been documented, and in all probability still require Government funding for further research. No, this time I’m gonna just touch a bit on the films that I like. My tastes are fairly varied, and I do try to maintain a balance. But sometimes I just gotta have me some cheese. To elaborate, let me give you a small sampling of the films that I hold dear. The movies that I, your humble Stevezilla (1961), love and never ever tire of.
So I Married An Axe Murderer
Invasion Of Astro-Monster
The Blob (original)
Killer Klowns From Outer Space
Enter The Dragon
Well, I could go on and on and on and on, ad nauseum, but suffice it to say there are very well-known pieces of freaking ART with a capital A in that list. And some well-known pieces of freaking CRAP with a capital C, as well.
I can’t explain it. Heck I have been known to like a “Chick Flick” or two (usually the ones with Tom Hanks or Billy Crystal).
I mean, does this make a well-rounded person? Or does it make me kinda like Charlie Brown, a bit wishy-washy? Shouldn’t I plant my freak flag in a genre and STAY THERE?
I don’t know the answer. Maybe I’m not meant to know. Perhaps I’m just to like what I like, and not look too much into it.
Here’s an example: Tonight I watched a Korean CrapFest called A*P*E, from 1976 starring JoAnna Kerns. It is SO BAD, yet I couldn’t NOT finish it. Would I recommend it to anyone?
(A certain Few, heck YEAH!) 🙂
It’s like a badly made Student Film wanting to be King Kong. I’ll save the review for my other Page, but let’s just say this film can hurt you if you let it.
Come on Baby, make it hurt so good. Sometimes Love don’t feel like it should, you make it, hurt so good.
And with that, a picture:
Good Night Gentle Friends. I’m afraid I have, as they say on my favorite TV show,…..
