No, you can’t have that hour back

The other day I said to myself, “Becky, you need to spend more quality time on the internets. You’re wasting your life away with those online Sudoku puzzles”.

I think I’ve found the solution:  Bmovies.com

Here you’ll find hundreds of b movies that have been lost in the wasteland of forgotten cinema. No sign-up or log-in needed, just hours and hours of B movie bliss.

So far I’ve watched the post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie, A Boy and His Dog (starring a very young Don Johnson) and the made for TV horror flick, Satan’s School for Girls (starring pre-Charlie’s Angels Kate Jackson and Cheryl Ladd and the Daniel Craigish Roy Thinnes).

I haven’t decided on tonight’s feature yet. Dementia 13 sounds interesting.

    Okay, I’ll admit it. I loved “A Boy and His Dog” and I have watched “Satan’s School for Girls” (all the way through). What? You started it.

    Since you are such a connoisseur of b movies, any suggestions?

    Plan 9 from Outer Space is always a crowd pleaser. Bela Lugosi starred as a space vampire. He died part-way into the movie, and they apparently continued on with the role without him. The replacement just kept his cape pulled up to his face. Wonderful, awful movie.

    I love the site, I do, but I have to quibble about a few of its selections. As a friend pointed out, “Metropolis” is most definitely not a b-movie. For its time, it was the most expensive film ever produced, costing over $200 million in today’s dollars to make. Also, how DARE they call “Sister Street Fighter” a b-movie. That shit’s a goddamn CLASSIC! Same with “Gamera The Invincible”.

    Yes, I realize this is being overly critical, but still.

    I did enjoy “Flash Gordon and the Brain Machine” because, for at least the first half of it, Flash Gordon appears to not actually own a shirt. And yeah, those 1950s Saturday afternoon sci-fi reels definitely do qualify for “b” status. And definitely check out “Carnival of Souls”. Ah, simpler times.
