The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970) / Too Late Blues (1961)

The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes – is just amazing despite being made almost 50 years ago. Robert Stephens is really the best Sherlock ever (this is what the new TV show tried to recreate, kinda made it, but not there yet). Christopher Lee as Mycroft 🙂

To late Blues – Great opening sequence,  nice camerawork in general. Not bad.

Camino (2015/16), Daylight’s End (2016)

Camino – definitely the better one of these 2 flicks, I expected it to be a crappy B movie, but got disappointed, it was quite good. The main character has a decent back story, the stunts and fights are very well performed by Zoe Bell herself, few good action scene ideas [few stupid ones as well, but not so many]. Quite a positive surprise.

Daylight’s End – even having Johnny Strong doesn’t make this movies stronger.  Main plot-line: people are shooting vampire like zombies all the time;  and when you think it is getting better for a moment it all goes back into the ditch. Less cgi- blood and cgi headshots please.

Karate Kill (2016)

The next film from Kurando Mitsutake, whose Gunwoman I adored;  I had less sympathy For  The Blind Wolf; Karate Kill however is a bit different that the 2 previous movies.

You could call it a martial arts mayhem / revenge film; Rolling thunder meets The street fighter.

The costumes of the cult members are almost taken out of ‘The Town that dreaded…’ this trick probably reduced the number of extras playing the bad guys.

The ‘Rolling Thunder’ hand will produce some laughs during the love scene.

The GoPro-psycho-face-close-ups are really creepy.

I recommend this movie.

The Love Witch (2016)

Just Watched it again at home,  and I will probably watch it again.

They voice of Samantha Robinson’s character  is still hypnotizing…

Great cinematography (shot on 35mm), great wardrobe and scenography, you can feel the attention to detail in every scene. Would love to watch it from a filmprint someday.

Extras on the bluray (uk) release are also worth watching.

Doomed: The Untold Story Of Roger Corman’s The Fantastic Four (2015)

Reminded me of the doc titled:

The Death of “Superman Lives”: What Happened?

‘Doomed’ shows some interesting facts, and gives a fresh picture of making the F4 movie.
