RICH'S B (AND WORSE) SCI-FI THREAD

"Now using the alias ?The Notorious B.I.G,? the giant heads for Griffith Park, where he picks up a busload of kids on a fieldtrip to the observatory. Wait until you see the expressions on the faces of James Dean, Sal Mineo, and Natalie Wood." - < scsu1975 >

 

I howled at that. You truly are hilarious! :D The photo captions...brilliant!! Now turn over.

 

?...and count me in if we're starting a Professor fan club.? - < JackFavell>

 

Wellllll, we could start with a lovely picture of the sandy-haired brunette...

 

?I fancy Edward Arnold, Orson Welles and Burl Ives as "Big Daddy". But the Skipper? No. Nice guy and probably would make a much nicer husband than the Professor who'd always be wrapped up in his test tubes, but no...? - < MissGoddess>

 

Aaaaaah haaaa. I see you like the bad boyz of chubby-dom.

 

?I'm not sure even the Republicans' constant No No No-ing is going to stop all of these monsters. (You'd think a few of these creatures would take some of them away, eh? I'm all for sacrificing politicians into some volcano, but those gods still seem to prefer virgins or goats or something else. Darn.)? - < OllieT >

 

That might not be such a good idea, especially for the crabs to eat politicians. Can you just imagine hearing those voices and lies be spouted from a multi-legged creature? Wait, that'd be art imitating life imitating art imitating the Message Board.

 

I gotta go and get my bathing suit. I've got some monsters to entice!!!

Yes, I wonder what Doctor Bronxie will make of that. When they're fit and slim, I like them noble, when they're chubby, I like them naughty. Hmmmm....

Is the couch comfortable? Good, let us begin....a man who is noble in character for you needs to have the outward equivalent in appearance by being proportionate and fair-featured; either average size or smaller suggests a refined, delicate, sensitive male nature, but perhaps ironically not so emotionally outgoing, and possibly needs drawing out.

This knight in shining armor will defend your honor and love you forever, but outward shows of affection may need some nudging. This individual loves the world but needs to be reminded to show more of it to his beloved.

 

When your man is chubby, he is "colorful" with his emotions -- they are all over the place, sometimes violently, malevolently. He will always let you know how he feels and won't hide behind his size. He takes what he wants when he wants it, and isn't particularly delicate about his appetites. He' s not really a loveable bad boy.

 

So, in either case I would say, you are attracted to emotionally distant men who are either thin or fat.

 

But pity me -- I HAVE NOW BECOME ATTRACTED TO CURD JURGENS.

 

I think I need someone to analyze ME.

 

P.S. My Uncle George looks just like Alan Hale, Jr.

Nooooo! Not delicate! Not small! Nooooo! Slim is okay, but big and tall. Who cares about emotions!? :D

No he can't love the world! He must love MOI MOI MOI and only MOI. Well, moi and himself.

Hahahaaa! Well, it's a cultural step up from Duane. And he can sing! That combines the talents of Meatloaf with Euro-Suavity.

The Beast with a Million Eyes (1955)
Directed by David Kramarsky


This is an incredibly dull mess. Paul Birch stars as a rancher living out in the desert with his wife (Lorna Thayer), daughter (Dona Cole), and handyman (who cares). The first 10 minutes or so are a waste, as we learn about the family squabbles. The remaining 68 minutes are a bigger waste. This movie seems to have been made up as it went along.

Thayer hears a strange high-pitched noise flying over the house. Her coffee pot breaks and her dishes are shattered. It gets worse for Thayer. The producers must have had it in for her, because she is attacked by the family dog, assaulted by the family chickens, and mooed by Chester Conklin's cow. (After the chicken attack, Birch suggests they have some coffee.) She is cranky throughout the movie. This may explain why she was cast as the waitress who gave Jack Nicholson such a hard time when he tried to order some food substitutes in Five Easy Pieces.

Deputy Dick Sargent, pre-"Bewitched," arrives on the scene and demonstrates he is about as smart as a Keystone Kop (oh wait, that was Conklin's gig.) Sargent has eyes for Cole, who sounds like Betty Hutton but acts like Betty Boop.

The handyman has a single-digit IQ and spends a lot of time looking at girlie magazines. Odd how these guys are never caught reading "Popular Mechanics" or "Field & Stream."

We learn eventually that an alien is turning all the animals against the humans (at least, the few humans dumb enough to appear in this film). We actually get to see the alien at about the 70-minute mark, and he is about as scary as Topo Gigio. I also counted two eyes, if anyone is keeping score. But I suppose I could have missed the other 999,998.

The lowlight of this epic is when Conklin is attacked by his own cow, in a case of udder destruction.

In the end, the alien is defeated by strong love and a weak script. However, he is immediately hired by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer to patrol the border.

I really thought that was Charley Grapewin when he decided to return to Hooterville's Vaudeville circuit with his once-famous bucket-juggling act.

 

This is also one of those great film posters that makes me wonder, "If those poster girls wouldn't be splayed out on the ground in their nighties, would Earth ever suffer such invasions and calamities?"

The Snow Creature (1954)
Directed by W. Lee Wilder


This is from the same crew who brought us the classic Killers From Space. The results are the same. It stinks.

Paul Langton plays a botanist doing research in the Himalayas. His guide's wife is carried off by some kind of creature. The guide claims it was a Yeti. So the cast spend the next 40 minutes searching for her and for the plot. They finally find a Yeti in a cave and capture it. Now it's back to California. What could possibly go wrong?

The creature is FedEx'd overnight in a Frigidaire. Then bureaucracy sets it. In what is certainly one of the most ridiculous scenes in filmdom, an immigration official attempts to decide whether the thing is a "creature" or a "man." Anything to slow down the already snail-paced film. This is just an excuse to give Rudolph Anders a bit part. He plays a doctor (not a Nazi for a change) who wants to study the creature's brain to determine if it is man or beast. Look, here's an idea. Just ship it to Arizona next time.

Of course, the creature breaks out of the freezer and wanders around aimlessly. We hear a scream or two off camera, and we get to see the creature approach the camera, then back away, at least 500 times. Well, this is one way to save money. Just shoot one scene, and play it forwards and backwards as often as you can. The filmmakers even recycle some background music from The Adventures of Superman.

The Yeti looks a little like The Thing, but with more fur and less acting ability. Eventually, Frosty is snared in the storm drains after he assaults Ed Norton, engineer in subterranean sanitation.

William Phipps plays Lt. Dunbar, whose wife is expecting. This provides the only suspense in the movie. Will it be a boy, girl, or "do no wish to respond?" Later, Lt. Dunbar is shot down over Germany, is thrown into Stalag 17, but breaks out with the help of William Holden.

This film is abominable in every way.
