How Robots Will Change The World
I'm been missing in action. Just too much stuff going on to post lately. I've been looking for an automobile title, which I finally found. It took me a week plus to run across it, but at least I also gathered together a box of paperwork to throw away as well. So it wasn't all for naught.
Over Halloween, I didn't do a lot, but did watch a bunch of movies off TCM. They had a few Hammer horror movies on earlier and later a Vincent Price Marathon. Most of them were worthwhile, and a few were a bit dry. But over all a fun day. Later that night they even had a short special on PBS about Lou Reed, which was pretty entertaining. Here's sort of a rundown of the stuff I watched. Some of them I sort of multi-tasked and did other things while I watched.
The Castle of the Living Dead--this one was pretty wack-o. It did star Donald Sutherland in a really early double role (he played a Napoleonic soldier and an old witch as well). It was one of those Italian films so had weird dubbed in dialogue.
Dracula, Prince of Darkness--Hammer Horror Dracula movie. I like all these Hammer horror movies, just about. Some are better than the others. I mostly like the Dracula and Frankenstein ones.
The Pit and the Pendulum--Vincent Price loosely based on the Edgar Allen Poe story. It had interesting sets, and I'd never watched it before, but was a little dry too.
Horror Express--pretty decent horror movie and sets from the Hammer Studios, taking place on a train. Well, worth seeing if you never seen it. Good sets, props, and sort of period horror.
I also taped The Witchfinder's General or Conqueror Worm with Vincent Price, but haven't gotten around to watching it yet.
