    Watched these 7 from your post. All worthwhile, but White of the Eye is fucking fantastic.

    Incredible, isn't it? And it gives zero indication as to how nuts it eventually becomes. Looks amazing, too. That first murder scene would make Argento jealous and I love how the build-up to it is like a real estate video, showing off all the chic, very much of its time design of the house. Brilliant soundtrack as well. I listen to it often. Cammell didn't make a lot of movies but the ones he did all leave a lasting impression.

    Not a film but rather a stage production directed by Lynch in 1989. Part concert, part avant garde theater, all nightmare fuel. Really a crucial part of the Lynch cannon as it pre-dates both Wild at Heart and Twin Peaks and features Nic Cage and Laura Dern in the beginning (they're not playing Sailor and Lula but their scene was clearly shot on the set of WAH), Michael J. Anderson and Julee Cruise. Pretty astonishing stuff that was only put together in a few days and features some of Lynch's most striking imagery including a guy on massive stilts dressed as a skinless deer. In his book, Lynch tells a hilarious story of how during the first performance the guy dressed as the deer tumbled into the orchestra pit so the second night (the show ran for two nights at the Brooklyn Academy of Music) as Lynch writes "The fuckin' deer wouldn't come out of his dressing room!"

    This weekend I finished rewatching the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I also watched The Dirty Dozen, Summer Magic and The Last Starfighter.

    has anyone here seen Tarantinos/Bishops Hell Ride? Was just looking through the IMDB reviews and people either hated it or loved.

    Isn't Tarantino's only connection to the film that it was released through his distribution company? I've never seen it but it looks pretty cool.

    Speaking of Tarantino, apparently Burt Reynolds was supposed to be in his new film but died before he could shoot any scenes. :(

    I'm not sure, but all the posters/covers i've seen for it say "Quentin Tarantino Presents" and i just checked and he is listed as one of the producers.

    most of the ratings on IMDB are either 1-3's or 10's, lol. Fuck it, i'm gonna give it a shot. Trailer looked kind of funny.

    That's usually how it goes with exploitation cinema in general. Very rarely do they get lukewarm centrist reactions.

    That happens a lot when a name director will let their name be used to sell a movie by putting "Presents" on the poser or having them be credited as a producer. Wes Craven used to do that often.
