The Vampire and the Ballerina (1960) Polselli is the italian answer to Ed Wood. One really wonders if there's anybody who can take him seriously. Well, apparently there is. I give it 3\10 because some of the "actresses" convince me that the foreign versions might be worth finding.

No matter how cleverly you sneak up on a mirror, the reflection always looks you straight in the eye.

La momia azteca (Attack of the Aztec Mummy) (1957)

La maldiciĆ³n de la momia azteca (The Curse of the Aztec Mummy) (1957)

La momia azteca contra el robot humano (The Robot and the Aztec Mummy) (1958)

Probably the worst trilogy ever made. People who dubbed Ed Wood as the worst director ever didn't surely watch this stuff. 0/10

Frankenstein (1931) 7/10

The Bride of Frankenstein (1935) 8/10 (but can't help laughing thinking about Brooks rendering of the hermit's scene)

Son of Frankenstein (1939) 7/10 Lugosi's Ygor and Atwill's incredible policeman are the real stars.

The Ghost of Frankenstein (1942) Lugosi again omly reason to watch it. 6/10

House of Frankenstein (1944) Carradine as Dracula is the best thing here (6/10)

King Kong (1933) It takes a long while to start, i.e. with the ape's entrance. Didn't remember the ape was so mean,  with trampling people under its foot or throwing (or rather discarding) a woman away from the skyscraper after having seen is not its prey. 8/10

The Amazing Howard Hughes (1977) Much better than The Aviator, a good biopic made for tv, available in a longer version than the one I watched on dvd, at youtube (but it seems that the movie was actually even longer in his initial version. In fact some of the episodes, like the story with Hepburn, seem to be cut). A great TLJ, no comparison with mediocre LDC. 8/10

Bonnie and Clyde (1967) I liked it better this time, probably because of the original audio and the big screen. But Beatty just can't play, there's not a single scene where he adopts the right expression. And even Hackman is not brilliant (though he picked up a nomination for this). Pollard is surely better. Why Dunaway didn't get an Oscar, though, is a mystery. And that was awarded to Hepburn makes me puke 8/10

Family Plot (1976) I know I'm alone here, but to me this one and Frenzy are major Hitchcock. Not as good as his 4-5 masterpieces but in his Top Ten. I saw this one for the first time undubbed after having watched it at the time of release and maybe again in theatre and tv. It gets better and better. The car chase (not a chase, actually) is masterful. Only problem I have is with the final escape of Harris: a bit too easy. I'll check the novel. 8\10

Flash Gordon: the Buster Crabbe's serials. The epitome of camp, the first two, in spite of some excedingly naive episode and fattening (especially in the interminable second part) are fine. The third is weak and unredeemed and can be usefully substituted by the soft-core (alas, once hard-core) 70's parody Flesh Gordon. 8\10

Flash Gordon: the Steve Holland tv series. Over here, strangely, a dvd was released with 3 out of 31 tv episodes co-produced  by USA and Germany in the early 50's. They are unreedemable: worst series ever made or a good candidate for first place. 1\10

Predator 2 (1990) A very good sequel, not as good as the original of course. 8/10

The Anderson Tapes (1971) This was the first non-Bond Connery movie I saw. Saw it again on tv and missed completely "introducing Christopher Walken": so it must have been before The Deerhunter.  What I don't like about these caper-burglary-heist-gone-wrong movies is the fact that so meticulous criminal planners let themselves be fucked up by so stupid decisions or circumstances, as Connery does when he lets a particularly smart boy remain alone in his room: he should have known better. Anyway, 7\10.

I like the Wolfman even less than Frankenstein's creature except in the Abbott and Costello's spoof. But anyway I bought the Universal box set and here it is:

Werewolf of London (1935) Little known but deserving entry as it is very different from the Chaney's formula. 6\10

The Wolf Man (1941) A good one.7\10

Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943) A good start (that's always when Chaney has still to transform), but the rest is you've seen it all. 5\10

She-Wolf of London (1946) A thriller, not a horror movie. 6\10

My Favorite Brunette (1947) A good spoof of PI movies. Hope is in top form and some of his lines are very funny. 7/10

The Sin of Harold Diddlebock (1947) Not a great Preston Sturges or Harold Lloyd product, it earns a 6/10 only because of the lion scenes.
