Peter Martin, I LOVE "Picnic at Hanging Rock." So odd, so spooky, so frustrating.

Where to start.....?

STAR CRASH- I think everyone needs a bit more whimsy in
their lives. This Roger Corman produced film gives us,
what I believe is, the first starring role for "The

SHORT CIRCUIT- Again, a bit of whimsy. If you were around
in the 80's when this film was released, you might
remember that for about a year and a half, this movie was

MEGAFORCE-Sure it doesn't have a real story. So why watch
it? Motorcycles with rockets and machine guns plus
dunebuggies with lasers. To this day, I see it as the
closest we've ever gotten to a live action G.I. Joe

TURN BACK THE CLOCK (1933) and THE HEAVENLY BODY (1944) both gave me the surprise of discovery, why didn't anybody tell me about them?!? Probably because nobody knew about them! I am careful talking about them to avoid ruining anybody else's discovery of them. I would like them to be a little less obscure, detectably higher than zero recognition, at least.

I went to see Short Circuit in the cinema when I was 11 years old. Not a fan!

MR. LUCKY, with Cary Grant and Laraine Day, never gets a mention with the other films of its time.


One of my top 5 favorite Cary Grant movies, Michael.

I'll offer up CREATURE (1985), a film that can be considered a rip-off of PLANET OF THE VAMPIRES and (very loosely) ALIEN. Worth watching just to see the great Klaus Kinski chew the scenery whenever he is on camera. Its seriously a B-film, but I love it. Bonus if you're a Doctor Who fan: Two of the main characters are named Davison and Sladen. I believe the film is actually in the public domain.

As for SHORT CIRCUIT, it was a fairly good film. But they shouldn't have made the sequel...
