Modern Nazisploitation and “Iron Sky”

Why had I never seen this movie before? It sat on my “to watch” list for the past year or so, especially since Netflix proudly featured the fact that they have a 115-minute director’s cut exclusive to Netflix. I watched it, finally, and had to wonder aloud why I never had before because this movie is 100% my interests.

That Awesome Movie Where David Carradine and Shaft Fight a Dragon

How do I keep forgetting that a movie as awesome as Q: The Winged Serpent exists. It’s this Larry Cohen movie where David Carradine and Richard Roundtree are cops out to catch a dragon (or rather a winged serpent but that’s the same thing) whose going around Manhattan biting off people’s heads. They are assisted in this victory by a wacky recovering junkie named Jimmy Quinn (Michael Moriarty). There’s also all this stuff about Aztecs running around [...]
