    Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women

    ★★★

    Roger Corman purchased the rights to this Russian sci-fi film and then brings in Bogdanovich to add some women to the movie so Bogdanovich takes Mamie Van Doren and some others out to a rocky beach and films them in various poses while wearing sea shell bikinis and then adds himself into the movie via vo narration in order to explain everything. Oh, and there's a robot named Robot John. The production value, set design, costumes, props, puppetry, etc. are all rather pretty great actually and coupled with the Corman ridiculousness, it all makes for some good, campy entertainment.

The things you need to feel, coded into nostalgia, fed back to you in repeating loops until the only thing that matters is your association to the iconography of nostalgia. "Narrative is dead." Says the marketing exec. Plug me into the Catrix.

    First Bond film I saw in the theaters and still one of the best. Timothy Dalton was unfairly let go of this series far too early. I'd easily rather watch Dalton as Bond than Brosnan and maybe even Craig (I know, the horror). Classic Bond movie in every sense, from the great cold opening to that unbelievable plane stunt at the end (damn, that really had to hurt). Pretty much gets everything right about making a Bond film. Shame I…
