At the Earth's Core.
It must be those indie Blu-ray labels publishing obscure 70s fantasy-adventures. Poor obsessed bastards.

* * *

Sweaty Caroline Munro = FATHER'S DAY. Give Dad something to watch in a childrens adventure movie.

The big problem with this one is the rubber model creature effects. Even with extra effort at suspension of disbelief they are painful.

Otherwise: we have Douglas McClure and Peter Cushing and a pretty impressive Victorian technology Iron Mole.

A "Pellucidar" movie is welcome, despite the effects issues. In the original books the Earth is hollow and people live on the inside surface of the shell. To hell with Newton. A mini-sun floats in the center and the land has constant daylight. In the film version they describe a vast cavern illuminated by a magma ceiling (?) many miles overhead.

From the mind of ER Burroughs, who also gave us Tarzan and the Mars/Barsoom series. There are narrative crossovers to all three worlds (and with Venus, a series I haven't read).

Pellucidar is ruled by intelligent, mind-controlling winged reptiles. In the movie they are actually kind of spooky when not moving.

Did I mention Caroline Munro? Although she'd been in other movies she got this job because of her billboard adverts for a rum label. No audition required. Everyone who worked with her found her the nicest beautiful woman they had ever met.

Seeing her as medieval wench, space bounty hunter, jungle girl: it's startling when you hear her speak in her own voice, which is sort of posh upper crust British. Which is even better.

Available on Blu-ray from Kino.

"Here's to swimmin' with bow-legged women..." There's also a sort of limerick that Quint recites as they're leaving the harbor, IIRC. It's ad-libbed -- Shaw read it on a grave marker in Ireland.

And of course ... it's John Milius that wrote that fantastic "Indianapolis Story" speech that Quint tells. There was a bit more to it, I think, but aside from abbreviating it, Shaw reads it verbatim. Classic movie moment. Dreyfus' look of awe watching Shaw supposedly wasn't entirely acting.

I don't think you're giving Shaw enough credit for that speech.


Here's the story in Steven Speielberg's words:


Steven Spielberg: "I owe three people a lot for this speech. You’ve heard all this, but you’ve probably never heard it from me. There’s a lot of apocryphal reporting about who did what on Jaws and I’ve heard it for the last three decades, but the fact is the speech was conceived by Howard Sackler, who was an uncredited writer, didn’t want a credit and didn’t arbitrate for one, but he’s the guy that broke the back of the script before we ever got to Martha’s Vineyard to shoot the movie.


I hired later Carl Gottlieb to come onto the island, who was a friend of mine, to punch up the script, but Howard conceived of the Indianapolis speech. I had never heard of the Indianapolis before Howard, who wrote the script at the Bel Air Hotel and I was with him a couple times a week reading pages and discussing them.


Howard one day said, “Quint needs some motivation to show all of us what made him the way he is and I think it’s this Indianapolis incident.” I said, “Howard, what’s that?” And he explained the whole incident of the Indianapolis and the Atomic Bomb being delivered and on its way back it was sunk by a submarine and sharks surrounded the helpless sailors who had been cast adrift and it was just a horrendous piece of World War II history. Howard didn’t write a long speech, he probably wrote about three-quarters of a page.


But then, when I showed the script to my friend John Milius, John said “Can I take a crack at this speech?” and John wrote a 10 page monologue, that was absolutely brilliant, but out-sized for the Jaws I was making! (laughs) But it was brilliant and then Robert Shaw took the speech and Robert did the cut down. Robert himself was a fine writer, who had written the play The Man in the Glass Booth. Robert took a crack at the speech and he brought it down to five pages. So, that was sort of the evolution just of that speech."




Here's a link to the entire famous Spielberg interview from Ain't It Cool News where he breaks it down (among other things).

This is what you get when you mix Jaws with a whoopee cushion.


That's Danny Trejo shooting himself instead of getting killed by the Anaconda in Anaconda.

Somewhere near the Black Lagoon, right?

I can take Jennifer Lopez as a documentary film maker, and even Ice Cube as her camera-man. But Owen Wilson on sound: he'd be more believable as a roughneck oil driller who goes to Space Camp to become an emergency astronaut.

According to Spielberg, Sackler had about two paragraphs. Spielberg wanted more, it could be an epiphany for all the characters. Milius wrote about 10 pages of the monologue (Milius says, over the phone), Shaw said it was too long, and cut it down to 5 pages (as a novelist and playwright, he did a surgeon's best work). But those are Milius' words on screen.

Check MILIUS, about 34 mins in. It's on Netflix.

Interesting that this has stumped people. The film has some major flaws but I've come to terms with them.

This was originally intended as a Father's Day dedication but I will include a picture of the Mom, hope this helps.

I remember the quote on the posters for Cronenberg's remake, but don't actually recall if the line was spoken in the movie. Will re-watch this summer.

It's a strange movie. The first 2/3 are a pretty fascinating mystery thriller, but then it takes a bizarre left turn into wacko sci-fi territory. I remember being completely perplexed by that. I would like to watch the movie again if it ever comes to Blu-ray someday.

Superman Returns is viewed as a homage to the original 1978 film. I appreciated that they retained some of John Williams original music. Metropolis is supposed to be located in the U.S. but for me it has the vague look of somewhere more foreign so it didn't come as a surprise to learn that it was filmed in Australia. Kate Bosworth was too young for the role of Lois Lane, would probably be a better match now 9 years later. John Ottman's score could have been better but it was serviceable. I find I enjoy the film more now than I did originally.

Here is an interesting article (that addresses some of my pet peeves) titled:

WHY THE WORLD NEEDS ‘SUPERMAN RETURNS’

Question is - where is Quentin Tarantino's 20 page review praising this film?

And now a challenge I've been struggling with myself for years... and it remains my #1 most coveted video clip:
Back in the 70's (a period during which my memory acuity varied widely), there was a comedy sketch aired on TV.
The commentator (who I believe was shown briefly holding a microphone) announced a place where you could send your recently departed loved-ones, something like "Fitness spa for the dead". It cut to a series of scenes in which a number of dead bodies were flailing about on various motorized exercise machines, and finally the "Olympic-sized swimming pool" with several carcasses floating face-down.
In my life, this was the time I was most concerned about actually passing out due to hypoxia from laughing so hard.
Somebody please recall that clip.
