Warrior of the Lost World is so much fun, and that motorbike is hilar

So our own tylerw posted this on Twitter, a nice little snapshot of a moment:

But I'm posting it here because note what is the other film on the bill with Dylan's _Don't Look Back_ there.

If only they could have gotten Dylan onto that party boat. Hijinks ensue!

They already had Little Richard!

Such a strange film. That one band covers a Ray Davies song that the Kinks might not have recorded themselves, I think.

Anyway I'm just trying to imagine who would go see that in 1967 and honestly enjoy both films. (These days, yes.)

one month passes...

The Avalanche episode is decent, though I agree with what was said upthread about their not always knowing the best way to fill the many blank spaces in action and incident that the film leaves. The best joke: "Tonya Harding in Sophie's Choice on Ice!

Avalanche itself is a truly dreadful film, btw. It has everything that I hate about the disaster genre--the sadistic deaths of random extra characters, the way these films always busy themselves with boring relationship melodramas as filler before the disaster happens--in addition to just feeling lazy and undercooked: the genre was obviously breathing its last gasps in 1978 (or, this first wave of disaster movies, at least) and this movie just felt like a quickie last-ditch cash-in on a movement that already running on fumes by the time this would have gone into production. Occasionally, I come away from some of these episodes with a tiny bit of affection for the films being skewered (say what you will about the nutso Cry Wilderness, but it is certainly trying to be...something), but this is precisely the kind of junk product that truly deserves the thrashing the show gives it.
