    Long time I didnt post anything... but I still watch movies... ;)

    "L’ombre des femmes" (Philippe Garrel, France / Switzerland 2015)
    Pierre and Manon are a pair of poor documentary makers, who scrape by with odd jobs. When Pierre meets young trainee Elisabeth, he falls for her, but wants to keep Manon at the same time. But the new girl in his life finds out that Manon has a lover. When she tells Pierre, the time comes for difficult decisions all round. Quite good movie about love and hypochrisy. 7,5/10

    "Ozark Sharks" (Misty Talley, USA 2016)
    A vacation to the Ozarks turns upside-down when bull sharks somehow infiltrate Arkansas' freshwater lakes and wreak havoc on a town's big fireworks festival. Another ridiculous shark movie… 4/10

    "Sand Sharks" (Mark Atkins, USA 2012)
    The residents of a small town team up to kill a group of evolved sharks that can swim in sand, and are terrorizing local beaches. You’re right, the title says it all… It’s bad. 2/10

    "The Cut-Throats" (John Hayes, USA 1969)
    A captain hand-picks half a dozen American soldiers for a desperate mission in Germany, to get possession of vital WW2 plans - but he keeps another secret up his sleeve. Some B grade Dirty Dozen… Not very good… 5,5/10

    "Tien ya ming yue dao" (aka "The Infernal Sword") (Yuen Chor, Hong Kong, 1976)
    Don't miss this one it is excellent. Chinese sword masters pair up to fight off yet another villain for the deadly PeacockDart. The ending is eye popping don't miss this one. Shaw Brothers come thru yet again. A good Shaw Brothers movie lot fights, action and good story. 7,5/10

    "Shark Exorcist" (Donald Farmer, USA 2015)
    A demoniac nun unleashes holy hell when she summons the devil to possess a great white shark.Yeah it’s just bad… with your smartphone you’ll certainly do better… 1/10

    "The First Great Train Robbery" (Michael Crichton, UK 1978)
    In Victorian England, a master criminal makes elaborate plans to steal a shipment of gold from a moving train. Sutherland and Connery are good in this funny heist movie… 7,5/10

    "Adam and Six Eves" (John Wallis, USA 1962)
    A man prospecting for gold in the desert becomes lost and comes across six naked women. Ulta cheap nudi cutie… sometimes funny. 6/10

    "Love Me Deadly" (Jacques Lacerte, USA 1972)
    A young socialite struggling to control her necrophiliac urges is torn between her affection for a kind businessman and the mortician who supplies her with bodies. Quite good little movie about necrophilia… 7/10

    "Heavenly Bodies!" (Russ Meyer, USA 1963)
    Taking a look at the connection that glamour models have to photography, a group of film makers follow a number of glamour magazine photographers around, to discover the skill involved in getting "magic" to appear on the photos. An early Meyer movie… funny. 6/10

    "Showdown" (R.G. Springsteen, USA 1963)
    A cowboy has to get 12,000 dollars in stolen bonds from the ex-girlfriend of his partner, or the gang holding him hostage will kill him. Quite good western, one of the last of Audy Murphy and directed by a veteran of the genre. A nice screenplay too… 7,5/10

    "L’horizon" (Jacques Rouffio, USA 1967)
    During first world war,an injured soldier named Antonin falls in love with Elisa. She urges him not to fight after having regained his health. The first Rouffio movie is poory known. However it’s a good movie about love and war… 7,5/10

    "Shark Week" (Christopher Ray, USA 2012)
    A group of complete strangers find themselves isolated by a wealthy madman on his island compound. A ridiculous survival movie… 2,5/10

    "The Atomic City" (Jerry Hopper, USA 1952)
    An atomic scientist's son is kidnapped by enemy agents. A curious cold war movie. If the first half is quite interesting, the secand about the search of the child is quite boring. 6,5/10

    "The Girl from S.I.N". (C. Davis Smith USA 196)
    Poontang Plenty is a secret agent who works on defeating evil while trying to crack the secret of invisibility. A pretty cool rough nudy with awesome and perverse Joyana you cam also admire in the great The Brick Dollhouse (David F. Friedman, 1967), she then unfortunately abandonedher movie cerrier. 6,5/10

    that's all for the moment...

    Yes, @Asmodai, Yeah shark movies are a garanty of bad movies...

    "Henry’s Night In" (Director unknown, USA 1969)
    A nerdy guy finds an old book, mixes up a magic formula and becomes invisible whenever he sneezes. He uses his power of invisibility to sneak into his neighbors' bedrooms at night when their husbands aren't home and have his way with them. The story is weird an a bit ridiculous but girls are very nice Phyllis Stengel and Mary Bauer will appear in a good amount of nudies during the 60’s and early 70’s before the rise of porn tha will end their carier. 6,5/10

    "La legion saute sur Kolwezi" (Raoul Coutard, France 1980)
    In May 1978, the mining town of Kolwezi in Katanga, Zaire (now Democratic Republic of Congo, the former Belgian Congo) is under attack from a group of communist guerillas coming from nearby Angola. The Europeans who work for the Belgian mining company and the Blacks who live in the town are taken as hostages by the invaders, who start a blood bath, shooting Europeans as well as Africans. Many of the Europeans being French, the French decide to organize a counter-attack, and to send a Regiment of Paratroopers from the Foreign Legion. The movie follows the stories of Delbart, a former non-commissioned officer, who was about to go back to France with his African wife and his child, Damrémont, who was Delbart's replacement, Bia, a Zairian doctor, and Annie, an American married to a Belgian engineer as well as Non com Legion officer Federico and the French Ambassador and the Military Attaché. Adapted from true events a movie to the glory of French foreign legion like in the 30’s… quite good indeed. 7/10

    "The Naughty Shutter" (Sammy Helm, USA 1963)
    A camera that is the center of attention takes polaroids of clothed people, resulting in magically nude photos -so far so good, but later the same camera pointed at members of a nude sun worshipers association supposedly creates images of them with clothes on, a completely illogical concept -it is one thing to suspend disbelief and imagine the camera making something disappear. But how does a mechanical photography device create the fabric not present on a nude woman? Ultra cheap early nudy only for connoisseurs. 5,5/10

    "North by Northwest" (Alfred Hitchcock, USA 1959)
    Rewatched this one wih always so much pleasure… 10/10

    "A Scream in the Dark" (George Sherman, USA 1943)
    Newspaper reporter turned detective Mike, along with his partner Eddie Tough (who used to be his photographer on the paper), and Mike's girlfriend Joan go after some business. She's the daughter of the local police chief, so she can send him clients, is the idea.. The first case he gets is a domestic investigation. Leo Stark's wife, Muriel has left him for another guy, Gerald Messenger, a man who looks like an ex-pug. Mike finds her, and Messenger, in an apartment, Eddie takes a photograph of them clutching each-other, and she agrees to give Stark a divorce, and ten thousand dollars. While celebrating at a restaurant, Mike is interrupted by a man, Mr. Norton, who claims that Muriel is really his wife. Mike establishes that Norton had married her two years past, while Stark says he married her five years before…. Apretty good little B movie Robert Lowery and Marie McDonald are quite good… 6/10

    "A Night at the Ritz" (William C. McGann, USA 1935)
    Duke Regan is the high-pressure, irresponsible promotions/marketing/press agent at the Ritz Hotel. He gets the taste of the home cooking, done by the mother of Marcia Jaynos, but thinks it was done by her brother, Leopold. Leopold has delusions of being a great chef, and the ability to delude Duke into the same, even to the point of selling him to the Ritz as a famous foreign chef. Sounds like a job for Mama. A quite predictable comedy but enjoyable. Patricia Ellis is pretty and Allen Jenkins as the sidekick is as usual… funny. 5,5/10

    "l’italien des roses" (Charles Matton, France 1972)
    Adapted from true events the movie tells with many flashbacks the day of a young man who is now at the summit of a bulding facing the void… Meanwhile, jest near a wedding is celebrating revealing many conflicts between people… He remember the love story he had the last hours… Soon a crowd begins to ask him not to jump but when the people of the wedding party arrive things are changing… A curious movie quite aesthetic and cerebral but enjoyable. 7/10
