A Crafty Cigarette

Crafty Cigarette

 
As the 70's paved their way for the 80's something new emerged on the horizon, the graphic sex comedy. While movies like Animal House, and Porky's were the most notably known for this style of humour, their path was laid for them by a most unexpected source a small Israeli movie called Lemon Popsicle. Also known as Eskimo Limon, or Going All The Way; the Lemon Popsicle movies were so popular and successful that they made nine, yes nine sequels; and even went as far to being re-made as an American movie though this bombed under pressure to be like the original movies.
 
In early 2008 as audiences primed themselves for the next James Bond outing the Quantum Of Solice, small budget offering Flashbacks Of A Fool made its way into movie big time, starring recent James Bond incumbent Daniel Craig, had Craig not impressed the audiences with his unusual portrayal as everyone’s favourite secret agent then nobody would have even heard of this offering.

In a barnyard young children play in the hay, when one grabs a large handful of hay and throws it at another they are surprised to find a ladies handbag in the centre. Searching for other gems in the hay the children are mortified to discover that under the hay lays the body of a young woman. This is one of several murders that have occurred locally.
Picnic On Hanging Rock 1

On Valentines Day 1900 a group of students from the Appleyard College left for a day trip to Hanging Rock, in Australia's Mount Macedon area. Enjoying the beauty of the rock several of the party are slightly bemused by the sudden failure of their watches, all of which stopped at exactly 12 o'clock, although Miss McCraw puts this down to a magnetic force from the once volcanic rock.
lost boys the tribe zani 5.

To help mark the 21st anniversary of a horror classic, Lost Boys: The Tribe is a chance to revisit the feelings and emotions the original Lost Boys gave back in 1987. It's strange to write a review of a movie sequel that a large percentage of those reading this will either have not seen or not heard of The Lost Boys. For those who do remember the movie, you rather like me are probably a little bit surprised that it has taken 21 years for a follow on movie to appear.

Those who have seen the film Bronco Bullfrog will not have forgotten it. Made in 1969, it features real East End kids playing East End Kids and doing the sort of thing East End Kids of the time got up to. We are shown real stuff like the film’s star Del, out to impress on a first date, taking his girlfriend ‘up west’ on his new motorcycle. He decides that the West End cinema is a bit too pricey so instead takes her for a slap meal to a fancy restaurant – a Wimpy’s.
