Saturday Night at the Movies: The Amazing Spider-Man (1977) - This is the pilot for the short-lived CBS series of the same name. If you're expecting plot, writing, acting, and special-effects of the caliber of the recent theatrical versions, you might as well be prepared to be severely disappointed.

Back in the '70s, following their success with The Incredible Hulk, CBS attempted to get a few other Marvel characters on the tube. Spider-Man, Dr. Strange, Captain America, Daredevil, and Thor were all tried. (The last two as attempted spinoffs from The Hulk.) Spider-Man was the only attempt to bear any real fruit. (Limited as it may have been.)

The series run consisted of 13 episodes, which included a pilot movie in the fall of 1977; five one-hour episodes in the spring of 1978; six one hour episodes airing in the fall of 1978 and early 1979; and then a final two-hour episode in the summer of 1979. (Wikipedia)

Click to View Larger... Click to View Larger...The trailer for 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' has been released, and it looks pretty good.

It's been almost a decade since the last theatrical visit to Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's violent Black-and-white world. The movie, in the works since soon after the original film's premiere, is based on a pair of stories by Miller.

Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, and Mickey Rourke are making return visits to the dark metropolis, and welcome newcomers Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, and Josh Brolin to their own little piece of hell.

The movie is set for release on August 22nd.

Our Favorite Movie Posters #101: Russ Meyer's Supervixens (1975) PDF Print E-mail

Click to View Larger... Click to View Larger...Supervixens is a 1975 sexploitation film by American filmmaker Russ Meyer.

"Gas station attendant Clint Ramsey, who works at Martin Bormann's Super Service in the desert, finds himself too irresistible to a series of girls, all of whom have the word "Super" in their given names." (Wikipedia)

That's about as close as any Russ Meyer film came to having a plot.


Russ Meyer was an American film director, producer, screenwriter, cinematographer, film editor, actor and photographer. Meyer is known primarily for writing and directing a series of successful low-budget sexploitation films that featured large-breasted women.

Russ Meyer's lifelong unabashed fixation on large breasts featured prominently in all his films and is his best known character trait both as an artist and as a person. His discoveries include Kitten Natividad, Erica Gavin, Lorna Maitland, Tura Satana, and Uschi Digard among many others. The majority of them were naturally large breasted and he occasionally cast women in their first trimesters of pregnancy as it enhanced their breast size even further.

While we usually do out best to include clips from the featured film in our "Favorite Posters" series, Supervixens has enough nudity in it that we just might lose our web hosting over it, so we won't include the YouTub video insert here, we will direct you to the full movie, which is available HERE.

Supervixens is also available for purchase from Amazon.com.

Sid Caesar - Click to View Larger... Sid Caesar - Click to View Larger...Sad news for the entertainment community today, as television comedy pioneer Sid Caesar has passed away. He was 91.

Caesar was the youngest of three sons born to Jewish immigrants living in Yonkers, New York. Sid's father, Max had emigrated from Poland, while his mother Ida was originally from the Russian Empire. The "Caesar" moniker had been given to Max by an immigration official on Ellis Island.

Caesar's parents ran a 24-hour lunchonette where Sid waited tables, and that was where Sid learned to mimic the rhythm and accents of the diverse clientele. Caesar referred to it as "double-talk," a "skill" he would use throughout his long and successful comedy career.

Sid's older brother David was his comedic cohort and cheering section, often creating comedic skits they performed for the family.

At the age of fourteen, Sid became a saxaphonist, working at resorts in the Catskill Mountains. There, he occassionally performed in comedic sketches.
