Zombie Beach Party (2003) Only thing this has going for it it's some gratuitous nudes and the final lez kiss, though not spectacular as it has no tongue playing. The rest is liable to put you to sleep. 3\10

They're a Weird Mob (1966) I saw this dubbed about 30 years ago, but of course it loses much as it is based on linguistic differences. The comedy holds well, but what impressed me most even the first time was the representation of men at work: more impressive than anything by Loach. I could have done without much of the romance in the last part (but the confrontation between Chiari and his father-in-law to be is funny) and so it's a solid 8\10.

The Glimmer Man (1996) It has a good pace but there's no memorable villain and the fight scenes, except for one or two, are all imbued in darkness. Still a watchable one for Seagal fans. 6\10

Seeking Asylum (1979) Ferreri was, arguably, the best italian director between the end of the 60's and the early 70's. But after his "western" I couldn't name a single movie worth watching. The review I copied from IMDB tells it all:

Awful! Absolutely awful! No plot, no point, no end. It looks like the director turned the camera on and then the whole crew went to lunch. Every day. I'm trying to GIVE this video away but no one will take it. I'm giving it a 2 instead of a 1 because I like Benigni. Roger, I'm going to have to say thumbs down on this one.

As I detest Benigni I give it 0\10.

Tales of Ordinary Madness(1981) I never read Bukowski and this movie didn't help me wanting to: but it saved me the effort. The protagonist is apparently able to find underage girls wanting to have sex with him: a drunkard, old, not good-looking man. He finds himself alone with Ornella Muti who ask him for sex (ahah) and he answers: "We'll do it first thing tomorrow morning". Still, having a previous literary source, the movie has a solidity other later works by Ferreri don't have. 6\10

Ghosts - Italian Style (1967) A humurous take on the famous (in Italy) De Filippo's quite dreary comedy (drama?). They kept little of the original, but the end result is consistent if you like this kind of italian comedy. 7\10

OSS 117: Le Caire, nid d'espions (2006)  Funny spoof of sixties spy movies but set in the '50's wen the Bruce's novels started being written. I'll try to check the twin title. 7\10.

Analyze This (1999) Very good in first half, it loses its bearing once the comedy is superseded by the action. 7\10.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009) No stop action: that it is main feature. I'd give it 5\10 but the excellent Paris chase sequence earns it 6\10.

Procès de Jeanne d'Arc (1962) Bresson's take on the famous heroine has the advantage of being short and of having a good-looking actress for the main part. Actually, with the exception of Dreyer's masterpiece, all of the other movies on JdA seem having had a pretty protagonist.  And still only Dreyer insisted on close-ups. 7\10

The Seed of Man (1969) Ferreri probably meant something deep but I didn't get what it was. 4\10

The Little Coach (1959) One of the best and cruel Ferreri, with lots of humor. 8\10

Les Compères (1983) A comedy in the buddy vein of L'Emmerdeur. Of course, Depardieu is no Ventura but Richard is surely better than Brel as a comedian. 7\10
