Gutter Trash Maestros Presents: Charles Band

Image

The man, the myth, the legend. Known as much if not more so for being a producer, Band has a long directing career as well. Band’s first big success was with his Empire production company where he produced bonafide classics like The Re-Animator and the horror comedy fun of flicks like Ghoulies and Troll cemented Band as an heir apparent to Roger Corman in some respects. With both the films he produced and directed, Band showed a knack for creating films that stretched the value of the dollar and made them look like bigger studio pictures on a tiny budget. After Empire collapsed, Band formed Full Moon Pictures which he still runs to this day, doubling down on the camp horror comedy elements and big studio-style polish that many of his Empire films displayed, Band also ramped up the marketing aspects of his business, and at times has even seemed to create new franchises in order to sell merchandise. His films often featured delightful stop motion effects courtesy of budget effects maestro David Allen and cheesy, over-the-top acting and plots giving his films the feel of a living comic book. Band is shameless in his self-promotion but delivers the goods where it counts on giving the public macabre, entertaining pictures that leave a big impression.

ImageImageImageImage
ImageImageImage

223. The Creeps (1997)
The Creeps is exactly the kind of kooky horror comedy that Band is known for. It’s about a librarian who hires a video rental employee that runs a private eye business on the side to track down a rare first edition of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein that was stolen from the library. What he finds is that a mad scientist has been stealing first edition horror novels to use them in a device that brings character archetypes to life. Something goes wrong and the monsters come back as little people. The scientist convinces them the librarian must be captured and used to help them grow to full height. Band has a way of using broad character acting and garish lighting to produce a very comic book-like atmosphere and this film is a prime example of that. It’s a really kooky movie, and cult movie fans will get a kick out of the detective/video store guy’s random references to obscure horror movies. Like many Band films, it’s stupid but fun.

224. Petrified (2006)
This one is about an alien mummy brought back to life that proceeds to drink people’s blood and/or turn them to stone (there doesn’t seem to be rhyme or reason to this). The acting is terrible. The effects look like they’re from a TV show from the early ‘90s. The plot doesn’t make any sense. This typifies the kind of lazy movie that has sadly come to represent Full Moon in the 21st century...

225. Prehysteria! (1993)
In addition to Full Moon, Band also created a production company to produce children’s movies called Moonbeam. Prehysteria! was probably Moonbeam’s biggest hit, spawning two sequels with all three being staples of video rental stores throughout the ‘90s. It’s a pretty cute movie about a family that ends up caring for and having to protect a bunch of unusually small (like knee height) stop-motion dinosaurs. My daughter found the dinosaurs pretty adorable. This is actually not a bad family film, and the stop-motion effects are generally very good for this kind of movie.

226. Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn (1983)
Spoiler alert but that title is a liar. Honestly I’m not even sure why this movie has a subtitle. It’s not like it provides any additional insight into what the movie is about, and Jared-Syn, the antagonist in the movie, isn’t a pre-existing brand that would have name recognition. I dunno. This is a pretty silly movie. It’s essentially a long chase sequence with a guy named Dogan trying to track down Jared-Syn in a weird world that’s like a mix of fantasy and post-nuke movies. If you wanna just watch people drive around in Mad Max-style armored vehicles while using magic, then knock yourself out with this one. Just know that it should’ve been called The Pursuit of and Eventual Escape of Jared-Syn: See You in the Sequel That Never Happened.

227. Ragewar a.k.a. The Dungeonmaster (1984)
The Dungeonmaster is essentially an anthology movie that isn’t structured as one. The premise is that a guy and his girlfriend get zapped into a fantasy world where an ageless demon played by Richard Moll challenges them to a series of scenarios to defeat to amuse him. Basically each segment is directed by a different Empire Pictures director including Charles Band, special effects guy David Allen, John Carl Buechler, Ted Nicolaou and several others. It’s a lot of fun generally with a lot of cheesy, stop-motion action and a nice variety in challenges. Plus band’s section has the band WASP for an even higher cheese factor. The only section that stands out a little awkwardly is the “Slasher” segment directed by character actor Steven Ford. It’s the only one set in just a regular modern urban setting and doesn’t really have much in the way of fantastical elements that the other sections do. Overall, it’s an entertaining movie. Just treat it as an anthology rather than a single, really disjointed story and you’ll be fine.

228. Puppet Master: The Legacy (2003)
This is almost entirely a glorified clip show of the previous Puppet Master movies. That’s it. I won’t waste more time describing it than Band did making it.

229. The Dead Want Women (2012)
This one starts in the swinging 1920s in what starts as a debauched orgy devolves into a mass murder committed by an actress unable to cope with the switch from silent films to talkies. Jump forward to modern day where the ghosts of those flappers and gangsters killed back then now haunt the mansion (is the same mansion David DeCoteau filmed several dozen ‘dudes with no shirts’ movies in?) and torment the unfortunate hot, young women that show up there. The basic premise of Band making a horror movie set in the 1920s isn’t a bad one but everything about this just feels weird and wrong. The emphasis on incredibly raunchy sex and nudity, the bad acting and the very limited location shooting makes it all feel incredibly cheap and sleazy. What’s missing I think is that spark of fun that embodies the best of Band’s features.

Here's my last post of the challenge. I got behind on the write-ups and I hate to just unceremoniously dump the last two directors on here without reviews but frankly I'm burned out. Nevertheless, I really enjoy this challenge. It's one of my favorites both for being able to explore directors' back catalogs but also reading others' thoughts and reviews of directors as well to get ideas for other things to add to my watch list. Thanks LoneWolf for picking up the hosting duties! And thanks to everybody who wrote well-thought-out write-ups!

Almost forgot to log in my lastest watches, hope I'm not too late.

Director 2: Ermanno Olmi
5. Torneranno i prati (2014) 6/10
A war film set in the trenches of the first world war.

6. Il mestiere delle armi (2001) 7/10
A shame this film haven't been seen by more people, it's a very good historical film about the war between Italy and Germany in the 16th century, and the new technologies clashing with old school war.

7. Il tempo si è fermato (1959) 6/10
8. La leggenda del santo bevitore (1988) 7/10
Felt like watching a dream sometime because of how things almost turns for the best, while at the same time the harsh reality comes back.

9. La cotta (1967) 5/10

Thanks for hosting Lonewolf :)

Cirio Santiago - Filipino King of Schlock

Cirio H. Santiago was born in Manila in 1936, the son of Ciriaco Santiago, an early Filipino film producer, so he had filmmaking in his blood. His 95 listed directorial credits stretch from 1955 to a posthumous 2014 film, but it's his English-language exploitation films from the early 70s through the mid 90s that are his claim to whatever fame he has. Most of these films are Filipino-American productions, often under the aegis of producer Roger Corman, and filmed in the Philippines and sometimes Hong Kong. They usually are cast with American - often African-American - stars (or semi-stars, more accurately) in the leads and Filipino or Hong Kong or Chinese secondary roles; the ones I've seen including this batch are heavily (but not usually entirely) post-dubbed.

I'd seen a few Santiago films over the years - the first was probably TNT Jackson which I remembered as fairly bad but entertaining, and typical - then in January I watched Future Hunters which while certainly not great was really wild and cool, and so I thought, why not do Santiago after Corman? A natural fit. Santiago's films usually have a fair amount of nudity - warranted or not - rather poor martial arts, at least one or two jarring edits per film, and a decent eye for locations, particularly cityscapes. Like Corman he had something of his own stock company, headed by Vic Diaz, often the heavy. None of these were even close to great, I'm not sure any of them were even good, but they're all kind of entertaining on some level.

17. Fly Me (1973)

"Stewardesses battle kung fu killers" is the tagline on the IMDb page, and how can I improve on that? Our three lovely, nubile 20something stews - Pat Anderson, Lenore Kasdorf, and Lyllah Torena - all work a flight from L.A. to Hong Kong, and each has to deal with a different problem: one has a domineering mother who tags along for the ride, another is mixed up with some spy stuff (and the kung fu killers) and the third is a drug mule. All the stories come together in VIOLENCE! at the end, are you surprised? Mediocre but has it's moments - the martial arts are just TERRIBLE here but they get better over the course of Santiago's filmography from what I've seen. Maybe all the decent kung fu killers were too busy working with Bruce Lee in the early 70s? Corman regular Dick Miller has a quick bit as a cab driver at the beginning.

18. Savage! (1973)

James Iglehart, a "pig" - really a U.S. Army officer working with the local government - who gets drawn into a civil war in an unnamed tropical country and eventually becomes the leader of the rebels, working alongside circus performers Lada Edmund Jr. and Carol Speed. Pretty ordinary and predictable but the last big shootout/massacre scene was kind of fun I guess.

19. TNT Jackson (1974) (rewatch)

Pretty sure I watched this on VHS initially, and not only would it have been panned & scanned (it's shot in 1.85), it was probably very faded. Most of these Santiago films haven't been great copies, but this one was pretty decent, properly framed and bright and color-saturated, and that made a definitely difference. Jeannie Bell is the title character, a karate expert trying to track down her brother in Hong Kong and running into KUNG FU KILLERS of course. This is the most martial-arts-heavy of this bunch and I wish the action had been better overall, but the centerpiece scene where a topless Bell is kicking the crap out of guys in her bedroom, and the final sequence where she shoves her fist all the way through the main bad guy (is that a spoiler? yes. do you care? no) are pretty fun. Overall the best of this group by a small margin.

20. Cover Girl Models (1975)

Three stewardesses I mean three models go on a shoot to Hong Kong where each encounters a different adventure. Yes, the plot is quite broadly similar to that of Fly Me; less action overall, more nudity, a thin story involving some microfilm hidden in one of the girl's dresses. Yawn. Pat Anderson - who had also been in Fly Me and TNT Jackson - is here again, and so is Vic Diaz for a third go-round in this group after Fly Me and Savage!.

21. The Muthers (1976)

This seemed more promising than some of the others at first - it starts off with a group of pirates led by women, in particular Jeannie Bell, and they're proving they're as good as any man until... Bell ends up trying to find her sister, and getting herself and her buddy Rosanne Katon captured by an awful warlord/slaver/something played by Ken Metcalfe, another regular presence in these films (and I think always a bad guy) and made to work his fields. So it becomes another women-in-prison: jungle paradise film, something I find rather tedious, and this one is no exception. Jayne Kennedy appears as another prisoner who is more or less the "house negro" (she's even called that at one point) and who seems to play both sides, and that could have made things more interesting, but Kennedy is little more than a pretty face here and it all feels very by-the-numbers.

That's it for me, thanks for hosting Lonewolf! I love this challenge, wish I'd had more energy or motivation for it this time.

As promised, here's the individual write-ups of the first 5 episodes of Anne-Marie Miéville and Jean-Luc Godard's 6x2.

1A - Ya Personne

Image

Ya personne is an incredibly fascinating first episode, as everything is stripped down to its very core. We are looking into a room, seemingly from a door - as person after person enter the office - and a man - seemingly Godard - explains that they are a company that develops films from TV. Each person is unemployed. Some have come through the job office, others have seen an advertisement - and the interviewer (it is seemingly - at first - an interview for a position - though most are not qualified). However, what at first seems like a purely formatic exercise - slowly turns more profound, as the unemployed people start talking about their lives, what they want to do - and reveal more and more of themselves. The interviewer asked increasingly odd questions, pushing the people in terms of how to react - and the results are great.

It later becomes clear that the people are not actually there for a position - put to participate in this program. It is an hour of work, they will simply come, sit down, talk and get their check. This opens up a conversation of what work even is - and looks into whether people really only want to do a specialized profession - or something more well-rounded. THe idea of unemployment and power is a red line throughout - as is cinematic tension - here created simply from faces, stories and simple movements/sounds, such as moving an ashtrey, putting out a cigarette, etc. It essentially incorporates the same tools as Numero deux, but in a more stripped-down environment, looking into the lives of more people and possibly revealing something closer to truth. 8.5/10.


1B - Louison

Image

1B is utterly remarkable, as it manages to make something cinematically interesting, that, well - shouldn't. We are faced with a 48 minute interview, almost all in 1 shot - though there are a few cut-aways - where we simply listen to a farmer speak. Or rather: he is given the occasional question - and sometime fairly bizarre ones - such as being asked to show with his hands the movements of his work: though rather than being patronizing, I think we manage to see an incredibly altern interview subject engage in and explore his own work and reality - in personal, professional, physical, economic and social realms. I was quite frankly spellbound, glued to the screen - as the interview - the talking head (though here, talking body) is (almost) all we see - only interrupted/added to by the occasional words on the screen - highlighting a theme or echoing a phrase. It is remarkable just how seeing a face, a fellow human being, and being immersed in his free-flowing reaction.

In terms of contrast it is interesting that the interview subject chosen is a farmer - contrasting the unemployed workers in being his own employer - and this relationship, both to the workers, to himself and to the economic system is explored in great and revealing detail. 8.5/10.


2A - Leçon de choses

Image

2A instantly shows the scope of the series as far more than stripped down tectics of long shots. Reversing everything we see close-ups - but no faces. Two men are having a conversation over a small table, enjoying coffee and cigarettes - and the close up is of the little table and their hands. This is where the cinematic drama lays - meanwhile the context and topic are far more abstract, contextual and playful - feeling closer to the work Godard did before, like for instance The Joy of Learning. The men are just talking, showing pictures, discussing what they see - but where 1 man sees the norm - the other re-contextualizes it - with a degree of humour and possibly sarcasm - but also with a degree of poetic licence and an argument.

For instance - where one sees a child - the other sees a prisoner of war - of civil war - and explains it with the school system, with fences, gates and bars - and of society at large. Where one sees a bed, the other sees an editing table. It feels less hard hitting and true than the previous episodes - it feels more like play - but it is thoroughly enjoyable. 8/10.


2B - Jean-Luc

Image

As the style of 2A is quite similar to Jean-Luc Godard's form of comedy and astraction/recompartmentalization - it is very fitting that the second interview subject is him - here perched - partially covered by a reporter (we often see half his face) as they sit opposite a table - just as the two men in 2A - but here we do not see the table, nor their hands. It is a reverse focus - and it is a beautiful stylistic/formatic contradiction/complimentation of 2A. It is a perfectly enjoyable conversation, diving into takes on criticism itself, the media, the idea of simply talking for an hour - and the concept of these interviews in themselves. It is not as direct as the previous conversation with the farmer, and it doesn't seem to get to the same truth - though Godard's musings are always entertaining enough on their own. Lighter fare, but still a great watch. 8/10.


3A Photos et C.ie

Image

Opening on a still photograph of an execution, and carrying the scene on for about 15 minutes - as the context, purpose and use is discussed with the photographer who took it - 3A is by far he most powerful and emotive so far. The tension within the photography, which is left for lasting effect, is built up more and more when contrasted with information of the exposure, shutter speed - and contrasting it with how long the event itself lasted - the reception since - the effect wanted. Simultaneously immersive and distancing - and this exercise in looking at context and impact continues. We see content - of all forms - contrasted with ads. We are looking at how serious an imagive exploring pain or pressing political circumstances - truly stands up when you turn the page and see models, general consumerism, etc. and we look at the ways of the media itself. It is pleasantly amusing - enjoying the chaos and showing the trenches of reporters recording a political speech - focusing in on their recorders as the crowd boos. It is, however, also a hard-hitting essay - asking the question of how much content is actually editorial - how much is ads - and just how messaging of importance is meant to reach out and make any kind of difference. 9/10.

Director 10: Blake Edwards
History: 3 movies, avg. rating: 6.7
The Pink Panther (1963): 6.8
The Party (1968): 6.8
Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961): 6.5
43.Operation Petticoat (1959, Blake Edwards): 6.0 - Cary Grant stars as commander of a ramshackle submarine, while Tony Curtis is the uptight officer swindling parts to repair it, they also have to pick-up a group of stranded nurses, which results in even more shenanigans. This is nothing special, but still amusing and watchable thanks to Grant and Curtis. Edwards does manage to screw up some jokes by not delivering the punchline visually on time.

44. Experiment in Terror (1962, Blake Edwards): 7.0 - Nice little thriller. Not groundbreaking, but does what it has to do well.

45. The Tamarind Seed (1974, Blake Edwards): 5.2 - Julie Andrews, a British civil servant, falls in love during a holiday with Omar Sharif, a Russian spy. So this is mostly a love story, that never really convince cause Andrews and Sharif don’t have much chemistry. Despite Sharif giving it his best. Gradually it evolves more into an espionage thriller, but in that field it doesn't engage fully either. Dragging at times and having Sharif's motivations never in question for us viewers also doesn't help built suspension/mystery. It’s in the final 20 min when all the pieces are finally set in place the movies does pick up some steam.

I also saw two films of Nico Mastorakis, but didn't manage to sneak in a third anymore Sunday.

:banana: FINAL RESULTS:banana:


Thanks everyone for participating! It's one of my favorite challenge, both because of the incentive to dive deep into directors oeuvres as well as the great, insightful, funny write-ups being done for this challenge. I really liked that many not just reviewed the movies, but also tried to make a larger analysis about a director based. After a week I realized I forgot to add a contribution bonus challenge, but than decided it wasn't needed anymore anyhow, since there already were so many amazing contributions to this thread. And honestly it's not like flavo needed another BC to win ;).

There were 28 participants. In total we watched 1240 films in total from 269 directors. 1 director was viewed by 4 users. Not surprisingly it's forum favorite: Éric Rohmer! 7 directors were seen by 3 different users; François Truffaut, Roger Corman, Spike Lee, Masaki Kobayashi, Werner Herzog, Blake Edwards and Jean-Luc Godard (counting his collaboration with Anne-Marie Miéville). 26 directors were watched by 2 users: ; Stan Brakhage, Johan van der Keuken, Dziga Vertov, Ernst Lubitsch, Chantal Akerman, Dardenne brothers, Paul Verhoeven, John Landis, Louis Malle, John Woo, Jacques Rivette, Peter Delpeut, Dick Maas, Michael Snow, Adam Curtis, Clint Eastwood, Philippe Garrel, Roberto Rossellini, Woody Allen, Billy Wilder, Akira Kurosawa, Joe Begos, Yasujirô Ozu, Steven Soderbergh, James Benning and Roy Ward Baker

Flavo5000 won this challenge with a staggering 236 points from 62 director, with which he also won BC#3. Obgeoff came in second with an also very impressive 144 points. The bronze medal goes to Lu-Chin with 104 point. Klaus made the longest run, watching 39 movies from Stan Brakhage run. Sol and flavo watched the most debuts; 9. We crossed off 86 directors from the TSPDT Top 250.

Directors with >3 films

A little evaluation for when we do it next year again. (I say when cause I'm very hopeful it will return next year ;))
Next time I would make an exception for the mini-/tv series 80 minute rule and let a complete series count for just one point in this challenge. Cause a series counts as one (unified) work from that director, so should in this challenge only count for 1 point.
Also next year we should use a Directors top 100, so we have at least a change of collectively completing that bonus challenge.

Thanks for the results, Lonewolf. B) And thanks to flavo for letting me co-win the Bonus Challenge with him. :pinch:

I will add the results to the spreadsheet soon. Not right now (I'm too exhausted) but hopefully some time in the next 8 hours.
