  1. Pam Grier Begins: "Black Mama, White Mama" (1973)

    When two trouble-making female prisoners (one a revolutionary, the other a former harem-girl) can't seem to get along, they are chained together and extradited for safekeeping. The women, still chained together, stumble, stab, and cat-fight their way across the wilderness, igniting a bloody shootout between gangsters and a group of revolutionaries.

    From a story by pre-fame Jonathan Demme, this is partly an homage to the 1958 classic "The Defiant Ones", which structured the ...

    I fondly remember all those Sho Kosugi films I tried in vain to emulate back in the 80's, and realizing that my portly pre-teen frame just wasn't cut out for the art of Ninjitsu, I reserved myself to merely watching the man in action. Never have I seen an individual whoop so much perfectly choreographed (and poorly placed) ass, especially with a gun in his hand, without ever displacing a hair on his head...oh Sho, where have ya gone?

  4. Final, Funny Fantasy: "Dudes and Dragons" (2015)

    An evil wizard, Lord Tensley (James Marsters), seeks the hand and heart of the beautiful princess, Lady Ennogard. When she refuses, he locks her away and releases a deadly dragon, which he controls, to terrorize the land. He vows that, until she accepts his love, his dragon will destroy all who dare display any sign of love throughout the kingdom.

    As I understand it, this movie began with crowd funding, which was successful, and under the name "Dragon Warriors" went around ...
  5. One of the Better Video Nasties: "Witch Who Came From the Sea" (1976)

    A disturbed woman (Millie Perkins, best known for "Diary of Anne Frank") is haunted by memories of childhood abuse, which culminates in a murder spree.

    The script came from Robert Thom, who wrote it for his then-wife Millie Perkins, though much was cut before it got to shooting because it would have run over four hours. Thom was already something of a legendary writer, coming out of AIP with "Death Race 2000" and "Wild in the Streets" (among others) under ...
