When the weekend comes, some people grab a light domestic and watch a football game, and some grab a shot of rye and turn on grindhouse cinema until the clock reads 3:00 AM. Here are the Top 10 flicks we are digging right now on Netflix Instant. Hopefully you can find something here to punch your eyeballs with.
10. FRITZ THE CAT (1972)
Despite a plot that is meandering at best, the films core message of social hypocrisy when it comes to cat tits is still appropriate today.
9. SWITCHBLADE SISTERS (1975)
A Jack Hill masterpiece that’s tough as nails.
8. BARE KNUCKLES (1977)
Robert Viharo and his mustache star as Zachary Kane, a bounty hunter in Los Angeles who sets out to track down and stop a masked serial killer who murders women with his kung-fu moves. This film is well known for its hard fights and brisk pace.
8. FRIDAY FOSTER (1975)
It’s ridiculous and nutty… but the kind of ridiculous and nutty you want to stare at for 90 minutes. Pam Grier… BAMN! Gets’em every time.
7. DEVIL’S ANGEL (1967)
Corman produced biker flick = Just fucking watch it.
6. THE TOMB (1986)
This flick is jammed with B-movie bliss: John Carradine, Sybil Danning, Cameron Mitchell, Michelle Bauer, and directed by Fred Olen Ray (HOLLYWOOD CHAINSAW HOOKERS). Done and done.
5. FLASH GORDON (1980)
Pitch the tent and start a fire because this fucker is campier than hell… but I could watch this shit on a loop.
4. FOUR ROOMS (1995)
Allison Anders, Alexandre Rockwell, Robert Rodriguez, and Quentin Tarantino teamed up on this flick that was trashed …HARD… by the critics, but fuck’em. These four vignettes wrapped up in a bundle by a Jerry Lewis-esque Tim Roth is cool as hell (I think Rodriguez has the best story in this set).
3. BURN, WITCH, BURN (1962)
What do you when you’re pissed at the wife for practicing witchcraft? You trash her shit which results in all hell breaking loose. Dig it!
AND NOW… THE DG DOUBLE FEATURE:
2. 100 RIFLES (1969)
The double this week is features an actor who was always better than the roles he ended up with: Burt Reynolds. From WHITE LIGHTNING to the films we are highlighting, Burt could smack the taste out yo’mouth before you knew what’s what. In our first film he is tuned down a little but he still manages some scene stealing moments. Jim Brown and Raquel Welch make a surprisingly tough combo. The fights and action are a little clumsy, but it gives the whole film a feel of authenticity in a way.
1. NAVAJO JOE (1967)
This may be the best mistake of Burt Reynolds’ career. When he signed up for this film, he thought it was being directed by Sergio Leone. Wrong Sergio Burt, but you got the next best thing, Sergio Corbucci (DJANGO). Relentless in his vengeance! Deadly in his violence! NAVAJO JOE!
HERE’S TO GOOD WATCHING THIS WEEKEND, SALUTE!
SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
