X Marks the Spot (1942)

A cop gets killed when he runs into some gangster Marty Clark heisting a warehouse. This is a film noir, gumshoe gangster movie of the cheapest variety and it kind of rambles a bit. It’s still a fair movie and a pretty good example of the film noir genre.

Blakes 7 Season 4

After they made the cast of Blakes 7 return the Samurai outfits they stole from the Chinese circus and after they made them return the wardrobe they stole from their violent assault on a transvestite revue, they only had 3 bucks, a pack of instant oatmeal, and half a sandwich but they made Season 4 anyway.

OK. So I think it’s soup

If you are not in the US or Canada and this doesn’t work as well as it did, drop me a note here or email webmaster@retrovision.tv You will be getting movies from the mirror server in Germany. If that isn’t as good, let me know and I’ll switch you back. This should be a lot nicer in Europe.

Phantom Planet (1961)

Watching the movie is like watching an undiscovered episode of the original “Star Trek.” We have a rocket being pulled off course by a strange phenomenon; we have special effects of the most functional and basic kind; we have a strange planet populated by earthlike (albeit small) people, whose strengths and weaknesses are allegories of human strengths and weaknesses; we have a series of curvaceous women, a brash young man and an elderly wise leader in the alien society; we have a brawny hero who alternates between fighting, courting and moralizing.
