"Shaka Zulu" !!!!!!!!!

Go see it now, my most favorite line ever, in that film when King Shaka asked the leader of the swallows about the story about monkey and the goard. Then their was the "Cannon Fodder" scene. Of course is the comparison between Shaka, Georgie IV??, and Queen Elizibeth the First. I know this movie took advantage of the pro-Africanization period of the world but that film is so auwsome. It is so easy to compare yourself to these characters. College proffessors could name a billion examples, and write a billion papers using Shaka Zula, as an example. Another thing to note, is that Georgie is used in various comics, animations, and other fiction as well. The backdrop of the Governours mansion is also immitated in various X-rated works. "Come Ladies"...... The actor died recently who played Shaka at 58?? Chained to a hospital bed, because of his senile behaviour.

ZEITGEIST: MOVING FORWARD | 2011
Zeitgeist: Moving Forward is a feature length documentary work which will present a case for a needed transition out of the current socioeconomic monetary paradigm which governs the entire world society. This subject matter will transcend the issues of cultural relativism and traditional ideology and move to relate the core, empirical "life ground" attributes of human and social survival, extrapolating those immutable natural laws into a new sustainable social paradigm called a "Resource-Based Economy".

Well I finally saw Dark Shadows a couple of days ago. Probably give it a C or C+ at most. The sets, filming and effects were pretty good, and Alice Cooper was a nice surprise. But plot and casting were highly forgettable ( Michelle Pfeiffer as Elizabeth! :thumbdown ) even though Burton and Depp were as tight as ever. Having seen the originals as they aired I'll admit it's tough to meet my own expectations, and I would think that Burton is also an original fan judging by all his work. You would think the guy behind Nightmare Before Christmas, Beetlejuice, Scissorhands and Sleepy Hollow would get it right since they were practically prototypes or practice runs for this one. But I guess the script was just not fixable behind the camera. Oh well.

Sorry to hear that Riddick was bad. I had high hopes for a sequel because I thought the second one ( Chronicles of ... ) was a surprisingly good piece of science fiction. It was solid and highly original and filmed pretty well. A definite B+ or A-.

Awaiting the next Resident Evil. Actually I haven't seen the 5th one yet from last year, and I hear they are already making the 6th.

Yep. I think Vin Diesel keeps blowing it.

For example I thought XXX was pretty slick, an updated modern Bond and would have made a great trilogy of action flicks, but he inexplicably bailed on the sequel which turned out ridiculous. I guess that babysitter comedy thing was more important to him. The 1st and 2nd Fast & Furious were okay but after that they got tedious IMHO. They must be big in Japan to keep churning them out.

The worse part about the final Riddick is that I saw him talking about it specifically as a gift to the fans who were asking for it. That sets high expectations indeed.

Live Wire: a "terrorist" buys a secret formula that makes water explode when mixed with acid. I put terrorist in quotes because that's what the description on the box says. There may be some backstory or cut scenes that were not in the film to show what his true motivations were. The entire film shows that he is owed money from shady government types and when they don't pay, he sends some guys out to assassinate those guys. There was a perfect opportunity for the guy to get his money at the end of the movie, but the writers didn't take advantage of that part, and instead decided the guy would kill himself instead.

In Time, by Andrew Niccol (GATTACA, Lord of War). Intelligent sci-fi, gives a new dimension to the term "biological clock" :P . I like the invariably gorgeous ladies and "future retro" cars in Niccol's films. Worth a watch (pun intended).

The Last House on the Left (1972): I've now come across my 3rd censored VHS tape and this one is it. Like a previously found title (The Van) it was obvious that scenes were cut. With the case of The Van, cut scenes were replaced with footage of a beach, but in this movie they just weren't there. Again I was able to confirm that this was the case after reading the write-up of the movie on Wikipedia, and how the plot summary did not match up to what was on the tape.

Hmmmmmmmm the tape was censored bud??

I love VHS,i collect it!! (I much prefer ANALOG over ANYTHING DIGITAL)

Here is the original VESTRON VIDEO release.... I wonder if that one is RATED R OR UNRATED?? (Unrated would probably include everytihng)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/310594321996

Maybe... I am not sure if I've seen the remake. The (1972) version I have is the MGM Movie Time version, it is not a rental.

The other censored film I have is Possession. This one made sense. As I watched it, I initially thought it was one of those "art" type things, some filming genre that meant for you to think about it. The movie was severely disjointed and skipped around a ton. Nope, it turns out the VHS I had was missing nearly 30 minutes of footage!

Certainly, Vestron is noted as having had two (VHS) releases of 'Last House On The Left':
1st release= 'R' rated, 2nd release = Refer to below links;
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068833/faq?ref_=tt_faq_3#.2.1.3
http://www.movie-censorship.com/report.php?ID=1868048

Given that the ebay link you gave has a pic of the later Vestron logo, (refer Logopedia here;)
http://logos.wikia.com/wiki/Vestron_Video
and has no visible rating, it is most likely the unrated version. (Ebay does currently also have

an 'R' rated version example, but ebay links don't last, so I won't reference it.)
Incidently, one of the better websites for er, ..outlandish VHS releases, particularly for
straight-to-videoVHS films, is this;
http://www.critcononline.com (Warning; You can lose yourself for hours in this web-site!...)

[Ohhh yeah, the thread title..... OK, if you ever saw that movie 'Narc' and thought "wow!, I
never expected it to be that good"... well you'll get the same reaction again after watching
'
THE DESCENT' ! (with the 'Directors cut' ending)].

Alice, Sweet Alice bills it as starring Brooke Shields (similar to how The Van starred Danny DeVito) but is featured in very few scenes. Overall it was fine, revealing the real killer before the movie was over, which gave the ending a strange feel. However the last peice was revealed, the motive, afterwards just needing to show the wrap-up.
