The folks at Warner Archives are at it again! Yes, no promotion, but lots of goodies. Check out the latest:
Death of a Centerfold: This is a fairly accurate account of the life and death of Dorothy Stratten. Peter Bogdanovich actually said in his book about Dorothy called The Killing of a Unicorn: Dorothy Stratten 1960-1980, this was better than Star 80, although personally I think he just found it a bit easier to watch (he was dating Stratten at the time of her murder). It's a pretty stark little movie with odd casting, but Jamie Lee Curtis is great and it's an above average TVM about a very tragic figure in pop culture. Highly recommended.
Jack the Ripper: This is the awesome mini-series featuring Michael Caine and Armand Assante. The filmmakers were so certain they knew who committed Jack's horrid crimes, there's a little name dropping at the end. But I'll never tell, you'll have to watch the movie to find out!
Man From Atlantis: This is the pilot movie for the short lived show starring uber-sexy Patrick Duffy (with webbed hands!) alongside uber-sexy Belinda Montgomery. He is the last known survivor of Atlantis so you know adventure ensues!
Who doesn't love a good scary clown? Well, this isn't a made for television movie, but I recently caught Darin Scott's newest opus Dark House and it was so very awesome. Click on link for review.
It's been awhile since I've done one of these, but if there was ever a time to promote an awesome TVM, now is surely the moment.
Madame Sin is one of those oddball little flicks that totally defies categorization. But I'll try to give the synopsis here anyway. Basically, the great Bette Davis is an Asian (!) terrorist lady who kidnaps a super spy played by Robert Wagner. She is using him to steal nuclear weapons.
I kid you not.
Directed by the great David Greene (Vacation in Hell), this is uber-stylish and somehow completely watchable despite the outrageous (and admittedly silly) premise. Go see this. It's awesome! Click on the link to watch it streaming on Netflix!
