Joan Collins was definitely the best thing about this lame '82 sex comedy, once again capitalizing on the success of Sylvia Kristel's Private Lessons ('81), a film that was actually banned in Australia for a while.
Goldmine ('83) was quickly retitled by New Line to My First Time.
Director James Camerson's first movie, Piranha 2: Flying Killers ('81), was also called Piranha 2 - The Spawning.
It bore little resemblance to Joe Dante's original.
Slaughterhouse 5 at the drive-in?
Those were the days.
Before Boys in the Hood, Menace II Society, and any number of more contemporary films exploring gang life in black neighborhoods, there was The Education of Sonny Carson ('74), a not terribly well known minor classic.
I saw it at the great Bel Air drive-in in Detroit.
Gerard Kikoine, who had a background in Euro softcore, directed this '89 Jekyll/Hyde tale of psychological terror. It had a novel narcotic twist, and Hopkins was terrific, as usual.
Very decent '96 rockumentary, consisting mostly of straightforward, well shot concert footage.
