Good night what a selection this time! We have many silent films and early talkies, several documentaries, some good 1980s Hollywood, a couple Japanese films, and a whole slew of B-movies!

Remember, I do up to 1990 except for documentaries that fit the retro theme. Be sure to check out http://instantwatcher.com/titles/new for newer stuff, but they are always a day or two behind me getting this out.

  • The Sacrifice (Offret) (1986) Andrei Tarkovsky is a director I read about but have never seen yet.

  1. Bob from Holland recommended the Fantomas series a while ago, this is a good opportunity to give it a try, although I’m not crazy about silents in general.

    I reviewed Harikari last year. It has a clever plot twist and is pretty good for samurai fare. A little long.

    The exploitation stuff looks really cool, and I will be checking out Only the Strong Survive for sure. I love the soul music of that era.

    1. Bunchie, I’m not much on silents other than the comedies. I knew I’d read about Harikari somewhere!

      Carol and Bunchie, I have a conflicted attitude toward the exploitation films. I like one every now and again, but on the whole they can be pretty gruesome. Still, they do have a certain attraction.
