One of those days. More promos.
Why not? Raining again. Tremors was on AMC earlier and I found an HD version of Remo Williams on Youtube that I am watching now. The one I want to see that is impossible to find is UFOria (1985). I have Miami Blues, Carny, and Southern Comfort on DVD but the lineup is uncertain at the moment.
Paperback reread. I have three copies. The reading copy is the newer reissue with the Lawrence Block introduction. Two novellas that were originally published in a magazine in abridged form.
Yes, friends. Rejoice.
550 pages in on a reread. So still a ways to go. First edition book sale find for one dollar. I always secretly wanted to be a monk so this one grabbed me from the start. Some people found the first 250 pages slow going.
Curucu, Beast of the Amazon will be the Svengoolie movie this Saturday night on Me-TV. Written and directed by Curt Siodmak.
DVD rewatch. I like it on weekend mornings for some reason. Wake and bake special. Get motivated for housework. I saw this in the theater when it opened. It was a dud. It has since developed a following. Some people still hate it. Ossie Davis is great.
A trio of film noir from director Robert Siodmak. A movie refugee from Germany with his brother Curt, who was a writer. One of the best and most prolific of the noir directors, he also did Son of Dracula and Cobra Woman for Universal when he was starting out. Phantom Lady (1944) was his first noir and this was the…
Library book. A 2012 thriller from Gerald Seymour. I don’t know why Mr. Seymour doesn’t get more attention. He has been writing thrillers since the 70s, beginning with the excellent Harry’s Game, and continues to be among the best in the business. This one is about a Russian crime figure who has been implicated in the…
Recorded from this-TV. Charles Bronson, Jan-Michael Vincent. Directed by Michael Winner. A very professional contract killer takes a young sociopath under his wing and tries to teach him the ropes.
Found on Youtube. I was trying to remember this crazy kung fu movie I saw in the theater when I was a kid. This is it and it is totally awesome. A rag-tag team of martial arts superstars gets together to stop a madman.
The Svengoolie movie this week will be Man-Made Monster.

Sad to see that one of my favorite character actors has died. Geoffrey Lewis. Father of Juliette Lewis. Star of such films and TV as: High Plains Drifter, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, Every Which Way But Loose, Magnum P.I., X-Files, and many more. I just watched Bad Company (1972) again last week.
