Way too many movies to comment on, so I'll pick one. I love "Who's Minding the Mint?" and first saw it on television about 1970 (yes, I'm old); it's one of those movies that I wouldn't go out of my way to see, but enjoy every time I stumble across it.

Ned Merrill said...

Many of these are favorite films of mine, period, not just favorite MODs. Man, I just wish WHITE LINE FEVER had been released 16x9. As far as I know, the disc is 4x3 letterbox and hasn't been corrected. I'm holding out for the fixed disc.

Lovelines! Piper looks so bright and sparkly now!

Aaron said...

Yes! Great list. There are a lot on there that I really need to see, one of them being CARNY. Also, I didn't know you were a fan of NIGHT SCHOOL. I dig that one quite a bit despite its flaws.

Steve-I've only been able to see WHO'S MINDING THE MINT? for the 1st time within the past 3 years or so. I wish I'd seen it as a kid, I know I'd have loved it cause I love it even now.

Ned-I do hope that Sony puts out a corrected WLF, not sure I've heard anything though. I owe you for turning me onto FAST-WALKING, glad thats finally out.

Lita-LOVEINES is amazing. It is my dream to someday host a screening of it at a theater in L.A. Would play great with a crowd.

Aaron-Yeah you'd dig CARNY I think man. Well worth a look. Yeah I was pleased to see NS finally come out after years of VHS only availability. I remember seeing that VHS in most horror sections of the video stores I used to go to as a youngster.
