Netflix Instant "Gems" Vol. 18


I was particularly pleased to see THE LITTLE FUGITIVE show up on Instant in the last week. Great little film that doesn't get talked about nearly enough. I've been dying to see MARWENCOL since I first heard Elvis Mitchell's interview about it last year so I will absolutely be watching that this week. There's also an interesting Brando double to be had with a couple of his cult items in BURN! and THE NIGHTCOMERS. Beyond that you've got lots of sexy 80s fun with the likes of COACH, HUNK, TOMBOY, MY TUTOR and MY CHAUFFEUR. Altman fans rejoice as ye can enjoy the much loathed O.C. AND STIGGS. I am anxious to revisit the 80s heartwarmer RUSSKIES(from the director of BAD BOYS(1983)). I'm also interested in seeing David Carradine directed by Ingmar Bergman in THE SERPENT'S EGG. Oh and certainly last and least there's the abysmal curiosity, THE DOGFATHER...

Another great list! Will definitely check some of those out.

J.D. said...

Yes, fantastic list! So many goodies to check out. Many thanks!

Will Errickson said...

So glad I finally watched the COUNT YORGA movies. While far from perfect, I'd somehow gotten the idea they were vampire spoofs, and they most certainly are *not*! Sequel's even better than the first.

Rupert Pupkin said...

Thanks TY and J.D.!! My pleasure! I can't stop!

WILL-I've still yet to see them myself, but have been meaning to for a long long time! I believe Tarantino played the 1st film as part of one of his QT Fests years ago.

KC said...

I can't believe you are on #18 of these lists! Is Senso the restored version? I just watched that and the 1 1/2 hour English version. They play like two different flicks, but it was interesting to hear Granger speak his lines himself. What a delightful shock to see him play a cad.

More great stuff! Thanks for continuing this series... now if only I had the time to watch them all! Marwencol is very good. I'm glad I went in knowing almost nothing about it. Not what I expected but a pleasant surprise.

Rupert Pupkin said...

KC- Yeah I just can't stop doing these volumes! Just an overwhelming amount of films to be watched! Good question re: SENSO. I would assume it's restored as I it's through Criterion, but honestly I'm not sure.
SLEESTAK-Thank you sir! Yeah dying to see MARWENCOL, hopefully over the weekend. Really looking forward to that doc.
