TOMMY'S ANNUAL PICK 5 HORRIFIC SUMMER TYPE FLICKS! - THE HORROR KNOWN AS "THE BOATNIKS"

If you like silly stap-stick kind of comedy then this one's for you as Robert Morse plays a slightly inept Coast Guard captain on the heels of three jewel robbers, hysterically by Phil Silvers, Shaun Hennesy and Norman Fell. A big fav of mine although I have noticed through the years that most if not all do not share the same opinion....The Horror!! Pinewoods Rating System - Three Tall Pinewoods

The Boatniks - 1970

Walt Disney Productions started the 1970's focused mostly on getting Walt Disney World ready than anything else. With construction in full swing on the opposite side of the country, the studio continued to make films the way they thought Walt would have.

JIMMY PAGE, JEFF BECK & ERIC CLAPTON UNITE FOR A "NIGHT OF THE KINGS" IN THIS 1983 SHEER HORROR

Greetings all, Horrific Sunday to ya- another great concert memory although a very strange night when I got to see the Arms concert 2nd night at La Forum in 1983. On the way back home just a few minutes out of the Forum some gang members drove up beside our car and threw a beer bottle which provoked a big fight at the next signal, 3 against 3 and it didn't turn out very well for the gang. So hats off to all involved, I'm still alive and ticking all these decades later....The Horror!!

TOMMY'S ANNUAL PICK 5 HORRIFIC SUMMER TYPE FLICKS! - "DO THE RIGHT THING" A TIMELESS MESSAGE

The iconic love-hate brass knuckles scene with the wonderfully talented Bill Nunn who we lost last year. 
On one of the hottest days of the summer in Brooklyn, racial tensions slowly bubble over to an inevitable climax. Along the way we're treated to an array of comedic characters. A film with a ton of great acting talent, many young at the time and now A-listers. Some like Bill Nunn, Ozzy and Ruby, are no longer here but the message of the film lasts forever. I think we could use a refresher in our current days and times and that's why I have included it for the first time this year.....The Horror!!

Do the Right Thing Movie Review (1989) | Roger Ebert

Spike Lee's "Do the Right Thing" is the most controversial film of the year, and it only opens today. Thousands of people already have seen it at preview screenings, and everywhere I go, people are discussing it. Some of them are bothered by it; they think it will cause trouble.

The view | 20 years on, you can still Do the Right Thing

It's one of those moments that seem calculated by the gods purely to make you feel decrepit. I'm talking about the 20th anniversary of the week that one of the finest films of the 1980s - in fact, of all time - snuck under the wire and made it into the last weary months of that addled decade.

STONES 1978! - LIVE AT THE MASONIC TEMPLE DETROIT A VERY APT TITLE FOR EX SBD - THE SHEER HORROR!

TOMMY'S ANNUAL PICK 5 HORRIFIC SUMMER TYPE FLICKS! - "EUROPEAN VACATION" IS THE FIRST HORROR

Greetings all! Every year about this time, I pick 5 "summer type" movies from my collection that get placed in a pile near the tube for rotation thru the summer. I started sharing them on the blog several years ago, so here we go with this year's picks, some new from last year and some not.....The Horror!!
Certain to invoke mixed reactions from movie fans, the 2nd installment in the "Vacation" series is mostly a matter of casting. The change of actors in both teenage parts was a big game changer. I actually prefer Jason Lively to Anthony Michael Hall and in my opinion Dana Hill is much funnier than the first daughter and carries a lot of weight with this film. It's hard to imagine it without her. So starting off with an oddball pick (after all it does take place in the summer ha ha) and still a big fav. Never tire of pulling this one off the shelf.....The Horror!!

TOMMY'S TOP 5 HORRIFIC SUMMER BEACH MOVIES! - THE HORROR KNOWN AS 1978'S "MALIBU BEACH"

Good ole Malibu Beach baby - The #5 entry is the first post for this drive-in clunker and it's the only drive-in/B-flick on the top 5 list. Get your air freshener out though cause this is one piece of crap.

TOMMY'S TOP 5 HORRIFIC SUMMER BEACH MOVIES! - #4 TONY CURTIS IN 1967'S "DON'T MAKE WAVES"

Scopophilia, one of our recommended blogs is how I first found out about this one several years back, His blog specializes in 60's,70's and '80's cinema obscurities. Now this Tony Curtis flick is a romantic comedy and I must say my appreciation for him has grown over the years.

IGGY POP 1993! - REVISITING THE HORROR KNOWN AS "AMERICAN CEASAR" - IGGY'S 17-SONG MAGNUS OPUS

If ever there was an under-appreciated album, we horrifically submit for your approval one Iggy Pop album 1993. Alternating for the most part between hard rockers and tasty acoustic ballads, this is Iggy at his most prolific as he covers America, racism, jealousy, hate, loneliness, urban life and more.....The Horror!!

American Caesar

Iggy Pop's last album, Brick by Brick (1990), seemed as if it might be his swan song - one last blast of creative juice after a decade's worth of mostly uninspired dreck. Three years later, however, it looks as if the record was the beginning of a second wind.

Hidden Gems: Iggy Pop's "American Caesar"

Each week, we take a look at some obscure or overlooked entries in the catalogs of music's big names. MAGNET's Bryan Bierman focuses on an album that, for whatever reason, slipped through the cracks in favor of its more popular siblings.

DAVID BYRNE 2008! - SONGS OF BYRNE & ENO STOPS AT TOWER THEATER PA - THE SHEER AND UTTER HORROR!

Greetings all - I had the great fortune of getting to see this show on the Santa Barbara stop, a town that loves Mr Byrne like non other. The new songs we didn't know yet didn't matter because there was so much going on visually on stage, it didn't matter. When he did his first Heads song of the night (Houses In Motion) about 5 songs in, it was followed by a 5-minute standing ovation. Never seen anything like it before and this tour already long forgotten deserves so much more attention than it got.....The Horror!! 7daylink Set list. Aud Rating A

David Byrne

At 56 years young, former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne took it upon himself on Saturday night to prove that age doesn't matter. With a two-hour-long, three-encore set that spanned more than 30 years of material without once faltering, I'm inclined to say he succeeded.

GRAHAM PARKER 1982! - GP DOES EDINBURGH WITH BAND PROMOTING ANOTHER GREY AREA - THE HORROR!

Greetings folks! - Hope this hump day finds you truly horrified. Stumbled across this the other day, a definitely rare GP show from '82 at a blog that calls itself The D.B.'s Repercussion.....The Horror!!

Graham Parker - Edinburgh 1982

audience recording (sound quality VG; transfer from master tape; typical fluctuations in sound during the first number; crowd noise is minimal during the performance). Just in case there's any question: this has NOT been officially released.

ALL MUST BEWARE THE "NIGHT OF THE COMET"! - 1984 B-FLICK COMBINES SCI FI COMEDY ZOMBIES & HORROR!!

Here's one that carves it's own niche rather nicely with parts horror, sci fi, comedy and zombie flick. The only problem being that for all that ingenuity, the film drags in quite a few scenes with shallow dialog. As you may know, this ain't no editorial type blog, so you can read some real reviews below. I would like to give this one One & 1/2 Pinewoods, but the opacity of the whole 80's vibe is so strong in all the right ways that I'm adding a half of a Pinewood for a total of Two Pinewoods....The Horror!!

Night of the Comet (1984) Review

I am a child of the 80s. To this day I love the music and the huge hair styles. Not such a fan of the clothes from the period, but the fond nostalgia remains. Imagine my glee, then, when I discovered Night of the Comet in the horror section of the local Best Buy.

Night of the Comet (Thom Eberhardt, 1984)

This movie is totally awesome! I know, it's a hackneyed idiom that has been used to extol cinematic shapes and colours for like, a quarter of a century or something, but it's the only sensible way I can think of to describe this flick.

KICKING OFF TUESDAY WITH A NEW HOUSE MIX "THE DAY SHIFT"! - MORNING MANIAC MUSIC THE HORROR!

The Horror!! Over the years I've done several versions of The Graveyard Shift mix and a couple versions of The Swing Shift mix, but this is a first for The Day Shift. Just to avoid any corn-fusion, the "day shift" is not 9 to 5. It starts as early as 5am to 7am and gets off 8 hours later, ya dig? So here's for all you early daytime folk......The Horror!!  Link to THE DAY SHIFT mix.
