‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’ (1973): Spectacular-looking movie, but is it strictly for the birds?
Far out, birdbrain.
Far out, birdbrain.
It’s springtime here at the Movies & Drinks world headquarters, and that means we’re getting ready to say goodbye to our “Seven Sisters” interns who have been scurrying around here since January, typing up reviews, emptying ashtrays, keeping filing cabinets fully stocked with the owners’ secret libations of choice…only to pour said soused owners into… Read More Joe Sarno’s Inga Collection: Nobody under 18 will be admitted to this DVD collection
This unjoyful, remarkably inept exercise in tired disaster conventions scuttled before the anchor was even raised.
It’s true: you mellow as you get older. For instance, I remember flipping out a few years ago when Shout! Factory released a fullscreen—fullscreen!—transfer of Tab Hunter’s cult serial killer flick, Sweet Kill. Now granted…it wasn’t like the time I suffered a massive breakdown and had to be locked in my office, ranting and raving… Read More ‘Sweet Kill’ (1971): Are you ready for The Arousers?

Can’t some bug-eyed outer space piece of sh*t abduct me the hell out of what passes for America today? Oh, well…one can dream.
It’s Shock-tober, everyone! That’s right—time to take out a second mortgage to pay for your groceries this week. So, let’s lighten our loads by doing what I’ve been since I was in a playpen: escaping reality by obsessively watching TV. And what better way to block out the possibility of six more years of the… Read More ‘Frankenstein: The True Story’ (1973): Mary Shelley’s classic monster comes alive on TV
I would suggest, KL Studio Classics, that it would be beneficial to your health to start coming across with the discs to the Movies & Drinks corporate headquarters (the Roseburg Towers, 3rd and Main. If you get lost, ask the bum who throws up outside the Starbucks—he’s our CFO). Just remember: we’re not the beta-crybaby… Read More ‘Framed’ (1975): Crudely enjoyable exploiter still delivers
