    • If I'm reading at all , it's never one thing at a time....I'm reading Peter Bagge's "Graphic Novel" (Fancy name for comic book.) Biography of Margaret Sanger , founderof Planned Parenthood , as well as the new Mojo (Johnny Cash cover. Life - affirming Wilko Johnson feature , too.) , Wally Wood's "Eerie" comics collection (Horror , Crime ,Sci - Fi , all non - EC.) , tHE CURRENT vINTAGE rOCK'N'rOLL (oR SOMETHING. Shitty name , VERY fine fan magazine from The UK.) WITH Little Richard , Vince Taylor , etc. , and some Archie comics.

    • Not so much....a few. Always liked "Infra Man". There's a realy insane fake Bruce Lee movie , in which Bruce Lee goes to Hell (Which looks suspiciously like Hong Kong.) and teams up with Popeye The Sailorman (!) AND OTHERS TO FIGHT THE ARMY OF DARKNESS - Dracula , The Godfather , The Exorcist (!) , James Bond(!!)., The Man With No Name and others , and liberate Hell in the name of teh good people who were wrongly condemned to eternity , there. But , I was never much of a Kung Fu cinema fan. "The Seven Golden Bros. Vs. Dracula" , a Hammer / Shaw Bros. collaboration  actually works.

    • Yeah, I love them. City On Fire's one of the best, especially as a certain Quinten Tarantino cribbed from that. The girls in them are just so pretty, especially Chingmy Yau and Carrie Ng. Shame the former colonial master never learned from these films and made some CAT III ones of their own, especially with some of the most exquisite females you can imagine.

    • Quite a number of Viz strips are quite dark, like "Suicidal Syd" and the work of John Fardell. "The Critics" often has Crispin & Natasha Critic reaching violent ends at times. "Dester Island Teacher" has a teacher stranded on a rock, teaching the wildlife while slowly going mad. Suicidal Syd always ends in Syd being murdered when he feels life is getting better.

    • Wow. A friend of mine made a very astute observation , yesterday. He noted that "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" starts out as typical lighthearted teen fare for the 80's , then , at some point , turns DARK !! Very dark. But , real life has a tendency to turn very dark when we least expect it. And , anyone who says High School was the high point of their life .....well , I WON'T WASTE MY TIME FEELING SORRY FOR THEM.

    • ......Recently , I got off my serious Japanese Horror /Sci Fi kick ( I recommend "Lake of Dracula" , as well as "Dagora" , "Atragon" ,"The Mysterians", etc.) , though , not forever , and started watching old Godzilla flicks , including "Godzilla Raids Again" , better known in the states as "Gigantis , The Fire Monster". It was the second - ever big "G" PICTURE , AND , UNTIL RECENTLY , PRETTY HARD TO FIND. I ALSO JUST WATCHED "NICO: ICON" , Tim Burton's original  28 min. version of "Frankenweenie" , several Kenneth Anger films , and a lot of Stones bootlegs I found , recently. So weird , "SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL" just came on the TV , in the background. I'M NOT KIDDING.

       

      TV SHOWS - NIGHT GALLERY , BURNS AND ALLEN , KING OF THE HILL , THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW , THE HONEYMOONERS , THE TWILIGHT ZONE , FRIDAYS (The new box set.) , Midnight Special (Compilation.) , Robot Chicken , McHale's Navy , and even Brady Bunch and The Partridge Family (IF I HAD ANY SHAME , I WOULD'NT STILL BE LISTENING TO 70's/pre - HC PUNK , ROCKABILLY AND GARAGE PUNK AFTER 30 + YEARS.).Cool

    • I THINK WE'RE ALL IN AGREEMENT THAT "TRILOGY OF TERROR" WAS KAREN'S APEX. I WATCHED IT AGAIN , RECENTLY. IT'S A VERY FEMINIST HORROR FILM , MUCH LIKE GEORGE ROMERO'S "SEASON OF THE WITCH". "Oh , I'm not drugging you....I'm KILLING you.".

    • Yeah a real pity. One of my all-time fave actresses after Natalie Wood of course:):). Her best movie has gotta be without a shdow of any doubt TRILOGY OF TERROR:):)

    • I too, like Thor. I watched the Avengers and was bored - but I'd heard about what a popular character Loki had become so we checked out the Thor full length. I was suprised at how engaging it was.

       

      I haven't read all the way thru the 10 pages of discussion but I'll throw out a few faves... Scott Pilgrim was awesome! Sin City raised the bar for movies from comics and (predictably) Ghost World remains at the top of my list.

    • Sorry for the double thread up there............:(

    • Nifty thread. I grew up reading Hulk, Fantastic 4, Spiderman, Thor, Capt. America, Iron Man, etc. so here I am. BUT, till now, I like the movie adaptations of those superheroes that convey ONLY sound anti-war and life-learning, good value education to young readers (the target group these comics and movies are made for!!). Having ranted about that, I can safely say that for me, the ONLY good superhero movies have got to be Hulk, Iron Man, Spiderman, Thor...even Superman. I can easily dump Capt. America (TOO nationalistic, pro war and falsely patriotic!!!), X-Men (moronic stories at that!!) and the like. That's MY 2 cents:)
