|11.21.07||Weird Wednesday|| This was supposed to be War of the Robots but the Ritz has no 16mm (yet) so instead it was supposed to be The Jupiter Menace with George Kennedy walking around talking about the end of the world but after the first reel we all found ourselves watching this movie instead: A science fiction sexploitation romp that's like a mix between Westworld, The Stepford Wives, 1984, and Sadomania. Whew.|
Highlights include a cowboy autofellating his sundae massage, the most unattractive greaser drive-in dude snapping before saying "get some action" and begrudgingly going to the concession stand to get some corn where there's a completely unexplained fight going on in the background, and the titles of all the television programming that we're gonna get in the future: stuff like Kiss My Whip and The Forcible Intruder.
That said, I sort of missed good ol' George Kennedy. The Jupiter Menace looked like it had some charm to it... I mean a movie can't be ALL bad if someone gets his heart ripped out in the first five minutes. And that bible expert who's also a computer programming was awesome. Plus I was ready for a christian fake-documentary and therefore unprepared for the lengthy softcore scenes featuring cute naked girls parading around on screen. Oh well, still pretty fun.
