Back from another great trip to see Saalon and LWQuestie (their IRC names, to presere anonymity). We watched Hard Boiled, which is certainly the best John Woo film I’ve seen. Though granted, I’ve only seen another, A Better Tomorrow.
Came back and been watching cheesy sci-fi films from the 1950’s and 60’s. Most are oddly earnest. They want to be true to themselves, despite the incoherent plots and poor editing.
But, for example, the one I’m watching right now features the classic slow-motion iguana as a dinosaur. Was this convincing at any point after Flash Gordon?
