Darkest Hour (2017)

Absolutely terrific film about Winston Churchill's rise to power and the turbulent times he had to govern through in the lead up to the Dunkirk evacuation.

Gary Oldman gives the performance of his life as Churchill in a film i never wanted to end. There's great drama, excellent performances all round, superb direction, beautiful cinematography and gripping political intrigue.

For me it's only fault was that it ended with four years of WWII remaining. We need a sequel, desperately.

DARKEST AFRICA (1936)
REPUBLIC SERIAL 15 Chapters.

Clyde Beatty finds a young boy Buru living in the jungle. He has escaped from the hidden city of Joba and his sister Valerie is still captive there, hailed as a goddess.
Beatty and Baru head off to Joba to rescue Valerie..

Beatty was a real life lion tamer and there is lots of wild animal antics going on here. One animal that was not real life was gorilla Bonga. Bonga is played once again by Ray 'Crash' Corrigan.
The highlight of this serial is the Bat-Men who fly around the city of Joba.
They look great and the effect is the flying dummy figures used in later serials.
They also fly in formation over the impressive model of Joba.
Great fun.

Another cliffhanger serial . Blackhawk and his merry band of do gooders keep America and the world safe from the red menace. Lots of fast paced action and fisticuffs.

So, the glasses came out last night for my Premiere of the 3D version of Revenge Of The Creature.
It looks great. Really good depth of field and a few out in the room moments including the opening titles. Well pleased.

The Abominable Dr. Phibes 1971.

Dr. Phibes seeks revenge on the doctors who he considers failed to save his beloved wife.

It's a very campy entertaining movie, Vincent Price gives out another great performance as Anton Phibes hell bent on revenge on those who he feels done wrong using the old plagues of Egypt. There is of course the odd black humour mixed in with bright colourful set decorations filmed by cinematographer Norman Warwick. 7 out of 10.

It's bastardized from the French release of The Abominable Dr. Phibes.

Night of the Big Heat (1967)

Christopher Lee, Patrick Allen and Peter Cushing star in this science fiction / horror romp about a remote Scottish island coping with a heat wave...in the middle of winter.

Directed by Hammer stalwart Terence Fisher,the bulk of the film is practically a kitchen sink drama dripping with sexual tension mainly due to Jane Merrow, as a former lover of Allen's, turning up at his hotel and turning up the heat (did i really just type that?) on their relationship to his wife played by Sarah Lawson from Hammer's The Devil Rides Out. Claustrophobic and sweaty, yet despite the heatwave, Merrow is definitely the hottest thing in this.

The final half hour introduces the aliens responsible for events. Wisely Fisher keeps them out of sight until the last ten minutes, probably because, and i hate to say it, they look a bit crap, and certainly fare better off screen in the viewers imagination than they do in full sight.

Not a bad effort, but all involved have definitely done better.

A film with so many crap posters, but this one below is something else, i think the Italians must have decided to plug it as a Dracula sequel.

Dr. Phibes Rides Again 1972.

Three years after the first film, Phibes returns to find ancient scrolls that will help him to resurrect his wife from the grave.

Vincent Price returns as the manically Dr. Anton Phibes, this was a bit more comedy than horror and loads more black humour, this was not the best sequel but certainly not the worst sequel. Yorga star Robert Quarry lends his talent as Biberbeck who has what Phibes wants and somehow seems like a race to get to a river in Egypt. It doesn't deliver what the previous film had but still delivers good deaths. 5-6 out of 10.
