I am so there. This looks like it could be even better than H.O.T.S. and The Cheerleaders, which are two of the greatest movies ever made. What can I say, I'm a sucker for shower scenes and saucy gratuitous sleepover nudity.

A Bucket of Blood is my favorite Roger Corman film to date. The Carnasaur series is up there.

Battle beyond the Stars is my favorite.

I, as a minor cog in the biz, declare Roger Corman as awesome.

Where's his honorary Oscar?

Death Race 2000 is my favorite Corman flick.
 
2012-07-26 03:27:42 PM
While I'll always love Corman's cheesy stuff, I think this was honestly his best work. Shatner was really good in it too.

I want to hate, but i really can't. I always roll my eyes at his movies but always end up with a shiat eating grin on my face by the time it's over.

She could get radiation all over her
She could mutate insanely...
She could mutate insanely... (that's right)
She could go on the freeway and grow up to be 50 feet tall
And scary-lookin'
And then...
Cars could crash all over the place
As a result of people with Hawaiian shirts on...
Lookin' up to see her face

He was awarded one in 2010.

Look upon his works, oh Fellini, Bergman and Bunuel - and despair!
The man is a national treasure - they should melt Paterno's statue and use the bronze to make one of Corman, and give it a place of honor in the Smithsonian.
 
2012-07-26 04:03:27 PM
FTA: "Interestingly, the title was picked for Corman and he had to come up with a story based on the title. "

It's like an episode of "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"

Rock and Roll High School is streaming on Netflix but only a week left.

I saw it under the title: Shame". Great stirring film especially when you consider the year it came out.

Just for the record:
MY FAVORITE CORMAN FILMS:

The Pit and the Pendulum

Tales of Terror

I'd let a 50 Ft cheerleader walk all over me. Especially if she was going commando.

FTA: Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader. If you like Corman, boobs and 3D, this is the film for you.

What a bummer. How could this not be about gratuitous cheerleader upskirts?

I cant think of anyone who has done more for cinema as a whole than Corman.

"Corman has been a mentor to young film directors including Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, Ron Howard, Peter Bogdanovich, Jonathan Demme, James Cameron, Curtis Hanson, John Sayles, and many others. He has also helped launch the careers of actors including Jack Nicholson, William Shatner, Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Talia Shire and Robert De Niro."

I'll take The Haunted Palace over The Raven but, yeah, the Poe/Price stuff is by far his best. Premature Burial and X: The Man with X-Ray Eyes with Milland are also well worth checking out.

brap:

A Bucket of Blood is my favorite Roger Corman film to date. The Carnasaur series is up there.


He was on that IFC show Dinner For Five and he talked about how you could show a graph comparing the budget versus the profit and how the budget stayed static but the profit would be lower each time while remaining in the black. On the last one they still made a profit but decided the margin had gotten small enough, so no more Carnasaur sequels. It was a pretty cool look inside how he worked his business models and advertising.

Amen Bruth. That movie is in my top five all time.

Corman rules and has brought my many hours of delight. New World Pictures forever!!!!!!

The Raven is my favorite of his. I love that movie so much that when Reel Toys did a 12" Vincent Price doll in that outfit I didn't hesitate. It stands next to my tv.
 
2012-07-26 08:52:53 PM
Not even an original title, basically a "reboot" of Attack of the 50 Foot Woman from 1958.

He's already broken that line, Corman's never been known for being prideful.

Sharktopus was a thing of beauty. Little Shop of Horrors was also very good, as was Carnosaur.

roger corman's adaptation of bram stoker's the burial of the rats. excellent period piece. smoking hot adrienne barbeaux is in charge of a battalion of nubile lingerie clad minions. cool castle / dungeon / horse and carriage stuff.

NeoCortex42: FTA: "Interestingly, the title was picked for Corman and he had to come up with a story based on the title. "

Almost all of his movies were done that way. Back in his heyday in the 50's, Corman and his people would create the title and the poster and then figure out which elements they could shoehorn into the film.

Epix had a show on the other day about Corman's Philippines years. It was epic, wall-to-wall boobs. I particularly liked the trick they would pull of putting the same exploding helicopter in all of their movie trailers.
 
2012-07-27 12:58:58 AM
My favorite thing about the Corman Syfy Channel movies is that there's always a reason for the horrible monster. It's not good enough that there's a giant mutant shark/octopus hybrid, Corman wants you to know why it's there, how it came to be.

The others really don't do that. Yeah, it's half man half mosquito, but you don't really know why. It just is. Corman takes that extra step.

Mugato: I, as a minor cog in the biz, declare Roger Corman as awesome.


Seconded. He is one of the great visionaries who shaped independent cinema and both an inspiration and a model for filmmakers working within tight budgetary constraints everywhere. I hold Lloyd Kaufman in equally high regard for the same reason. They're the ones out there telling you to make your film your way no matter how cheaply instead of being forced to compromise your ideas for the sake of money.

I stumbled onto the "Epix Drive-In" channel flipping around a few months back and haven't watched much else sense. Pretty much wall-to-wall Corman, plus I've always been a sucker for Anitra Ford...

ISTR that Corman's company was the one who first imported Bergman's (and possibly Fellini's) work
to the US.

Financed by the cashflow of his other films.

The man is a student of cinema, as much as he will disclaim any pretentions toward making art,
and he deserves the deification he has been given.
