I have read a couple of blogs and posts lately regarding movies and films. Can you believe someone is making "Fifty Shades of Grey" into a movie? Barf! Will somebody please make Howard Chaykin's "Black Kiss"?
This got me thinking about my favourite films... I decided to update my profile to show some of my fav movies and books. Check it out. While I was composing the list, I thought about the great films that I like. There were Citizen Kane, Star Wars, Doctor Zhivago, etc... Then I wondered if I should add some of my guilty pleasure films. You know the ones. We all have them. The cult films, cheap B movies that are just too much fun to hate. I love a good B movie that doesn't take itself too seriously. For many years it was Rocky Horror, then in the eighties I found Repo Man. There were plenty of old classic B's too, like Barbarella. My latest guilty pleasure film (watched it 3 times this week) is "Bitch Slap"
For some of us, it's easy to relate to one the characters. I think most of us could relate to Hel (played by sexy Erin Cummings). I know I do. She is sharp, strong, confident and compassionate. The other gals have some qualities that I can see in myself too. Camero (America Olivo) is direct and honest to a fault. Even Trixie (Julia Voth) surprised me. There is so much more under the surface. The supporting cast is full of rich characters too. Hotwire and Kinki are beyond fun.
To surmise it, The film is a cornucopia of diverse personalities caught in a dichotomy of circumstance that an emotional juxtaposition transforms into a polarization of conflict arising to a crescendo of turmoil....with tits and guns. (Micheal Hurst aka Gage)
