Web of the Spider (1971)

Remaking one’s own film isn’t exactly a common occurrence but it has been done before. Look no further than Alfred Hitchcock to realize that even the great ones attempt to […]

The Killer Elite (1975)

Espionage and San Francisco replace hardened outlaws and Mexico for this Sam Peckinpah effort that once again sees the director assemble a first rate cast for more slow motion blood […]

Cold Sweat (1970)

I’ll agree that this Terence Young directed effort might not be the best movie of Charles Bronson’s career but it might be the best he ever looked on camera. One […]

Brass Target (1978)

The conspiracy theory prevails as fact in this John Hough directed effort that sees George Kennedy assume the role of General George S. Patton and the telling of events that […]

The Pack (1977)

Brando’s Pick of the Month I’m not sure just how intimidating this movie’s “pack” would be if Brando the Dachshund was a member but as it is, Joe Don Baker […]

The Front Page (1974)

Sure it’s been done before and yes the Cary Grant-Rosalind Russell-Howard Hawks version is a classic that no one should ever try to improve upon. Agreed no? But what if Billy […]

Vampyres (1974)

“Does this kind of thing excite you.” From director Jose Ramon Larraz, this made in England thriller is for me the best of the erotic “lesbian” vampire thrillers that were […]

Harvey Keitel : From Bugsy to Mickey

Raise your hands if you recall that Harvey Keitel played Mickey Cohen in support of Warren Beatty and Annette Benning in the 1991 big budget take on Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel […]

The Marseille Contract (1974)

aka The Destructors  Long time director Robert Parrish joins forces with a trio of name actors that for me is just too hard to resist. Gentlemen by the names of […]

Welcome to Arrow Beach (1974)

aka Tender Flesh For his final film before his untimely death, one time Oscar nominee, Laurence Harvey, enters the world of Herschell Gordon Lewis by starring in and directing this […]

Diamonds Are Forever (1971)

The world of Bond …. James Bond comes to Mike’s Take on the Movies for the first time. Sure I’ve seen every Bond movie and I’m a card carrying wanna […]

A Pair of George Kennedy Telefilms

I settled on spotlighting Oscar winner George Kennedy when Maddy, who I must say loves her classic movies announced a blogathon celebrating the small screen. Kennedy has always been one […]

The Boy Who Cried Werewolf (1973)

Having seen images of this film in horror books and magazines like Famous Monsters years ago while growing up I’m kind of surprised it’s taken me this long to finally […]

Hornet’s Nest (1970)

Two years before John Wayne took a bunch of schoolboys on as cowhands in The Cowboys, Rock Hudson turned up in this WW2 adventure that found him adopting a ragtag […]

The Doberman Gang (1972)

It’s an unlikely heist flick that serves as Brando’s Pick of the Month with little in the way of star power but plenty of four legged thieves and gnashing teeth. When a […]
