It's been a poor month for new movies. 1. That's all I had seen so far this month, now I have two more to add to the list.
Our first film was Ultraman Cosmos vs Ultraman Justice The Final Battle. It was a fan subtitled bootleg borrowed from some guy who borrowed it from another guy. That's why I don't lend stuff out anymore. Here's a site that explains the movie, I wasn't paying attention when they were going over the plot exposition. There are some monsters, building crushing, explosions, and not much else of interest. The aliens blow up pretty good. Still, I couldn't get interested in the characters, it's just another in a long series of Japanese fighting shows starring guys who expand and shrink to battle size-changing monsters. This one has been going on for 40 years with a whole plethora of Ultramen punching and kicking for your post school tv viewing pleasure. Or at least, the viewing pleasure of young Japanese children.
Frightmare was new to me, as is the director Peter Walker. Greg brought it, he said there's a book about Walker's explotation career. I don't care. Hopefully the book is more interesting than the film. The book about Andy Milligan was much better than anything he ever put on film. Frightmare is about a murdering wife with a taste for human flesh and her enabling husband. She kills and he helps where he can. After 15 years in an asylum they are cured, released and settle on a farm. Then the killing starts again. There's some gore but no nudity in this 1974 disappointer. The characters are mostly annoying and I didn't care for any of them. The story plods along until near the end when things get more exciting.
So, all in all not a very good pair to add to the list of movies seen.
