No BBFC cuts noted to the 2010 Nouveaux DVD

Review from UK Amazon : Roger Corman 70s b-movie

Big Bad Mama is the archetypal Roger Corman 70s b-movie, with the monsters and sci-fi of the 50s and 60s replaced by plentiful low-budget action, tongue-in-cheek humor and mandatory nudity from almost every actress in the cast in a fast-moving Depression-era backroads gangster flick.

Angie Dickinson is the Ma Barker figure tryin' to do right by her two gals, stumbling her way from bootlegging to armed robbery to kidnapping with the aid of Tom Skerritt's bank robber and William Shatner's Southern conman (unfortunately the mandatory nudity rule also applies to him, though we are spared the sight of the captain's log).

Mostly this has few aspirations beyond throwing in as many shootouts, car chases and nude scenes from Ms Dickinson as it can in its 83-minute running time.

Summary Review: Like something off Flesh Gordon

In 1995, Italy annihilates Libya, which destroys Israel. Africa bombs Germany, which in turn attacks France. Then it gets out of hand leaving only two continents on the verge of World War IV. In the north, a mutated strain of males in America and Russia merge. All that is left of womankind retreat to their territory of Vaginia.

Everything looks like something off Flesh Gordon. The weapons and characters, even the battle (of the sexes) that is going on here. There are loads, loads and loads of sexual reference and innuendo.

Bottom line: not for everybody (like the politically correct and squeamish).

Summary Review: Worth seeing!

A unique prison film on the grounds that it provides a great mix of comedy and action. Pam Grier as a tough revolutionary provided all the action as she plotted to free the mistreated women from prison. The comedy mostly came from the sexually deprived women, who were full of one-liners and crazy notions.

But of course the movie still contained all the things that make a good prison exploitation film....lots of nudity... violence... bad language and did I mention lots of nudity. It's worth seeing!

Big Boss DVD Bruce Lee

The Big Boss is a 1971 Hong Kong martial arts film by Wei Lo.
With Bruce Lee, Maria Yi and James Tien. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
Cut by the BBFC for cinema release and VHS. The cuts were waived in 2000, but not all DVD releases have used the uncut version. There are reports of lost scenes, for example, the infamous saw in the head or Lee's second visit to the brothel.

Summary Review: Broken Oath of Non-Violence

A young man sworn to an oath of non-violence works with his cousins in an ice factory where they mysteriously begin to disappear.

As one might expect, the whole movie is an excuse to show off Bruce Lee's moves, and they do a great job with it. There's not much in the way of an actual plot. They get straight down to the martial arts. Probably Bruce's most violent and bloody film.

The original version of his death, which not only shows an explicit close-up of the knife in his chest but Cheng Chao-an's fingers piercing his rib cage and blood flowing from under his shirt, would have given the film an X rating. This scene has since been restored for the Bruce Lee Ultimate Collection DVD released by Fox, and the Shout Factory DVD/Bluray releases.

Summary Review: Naive Silly Fun

Beautiful women prisoners are abused in a Philippine prison, until 5 of them plot an escape by taking the evil female warden hostage with the reluctant help of 2 male fruit vendors.

The whole film has a tone of naivety despite of its run of sex and violence. The plot couldn't be more simple: a group of women in prison, led by the resourceful Collier (top-billed Judy Brown), plan an escape. Guards torment and molest prisoners. Prisoners get naked (though not as much as you'd expect for this genre). One evil head guard, Lucian tortures bad girls by tying them to tables and hanging snakes over them.

The fast paced film is surprisingly well acted, and delivers all the usual thrills you would expect, with a few witty lines and some hysterical monologues.

The Big Racket is a 1976 Italian crime film by Enzo G Castellari.
With Fabio Testi, Vincent Gardenia and Renzo Palmer. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

Banned by the BBFC for 1977 cinema release. Cut for 2003 VHS. Uncut in the US

Summary Review: Good Script

Nico Palmieri is a police inspector who battles against hoodlums terrorising a sleepy Italian village, extorting cash from the locals.

The Big Racket benefits immensely from a strong leading performance courtesy of Fabio Testi. Testi's portrayal of the angry police officer is perfectly judged to fit the movie, and I don't think there is an actor who could be better suited to playing the lead in this movie.

The script is really good, and finds time to flesh out its characters as well as deliver witty dialogue that is always a part of this movie's bigger budget American cousins.  It all boils down to a fabulous conclusion which serves in ensuring the movie gets the bloody end it deserves, as well as rounding off the story perfectly.

US: Cut for an MPAA PG-13 rating

Thanks to Mark who pointed out that there's a dubbing alteration in the hair salon between Mel Gibson, Goldie Hawn and the owner of the salon. The scene involves Goldie using Mel's real name, Rick instead of Matty and there seems to be an overdub recorded in a studio by the actors to replace the word clearly mouthed as 'Prick' with the overdub 'Sick'. Comments on IMDb suggest that this was a cut to obtain an MPAA PG-13 rating.

The Bird with the Crystal Plumage is a 1969 Italian/West German thriller by Dario Argento.
With Tony Musante and Suzy Kendall. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
The cut US R Version was passed X for cinema release (and pre-cert VHS). Cut further by the BBFC for VHS and 2005 DVD. Uncut for the 2011 Arrow DVD. Uncut for recent US releases.

Summary Review: Engrossing Mystery

This was Dario Argento's debut feature, a well-received thriller in which an American writer living in Rome (Tony Musante) witnesses an assault on a woman in an art gallery and is subsequently targeted by the would-be assassin, a crazed psychopath who's been terrorizing the city with a series of brutal murders.

It is a fairly straightforward thriller with horror asides, anchored by a strong narrative, an increasingly bizarre series of supporting characters, and a strong Everyman hero who slots the puzzle together piece by piece before realizing that the most important clue to the killer's identity was there in front of him all the time.

Producers were unconvinced of his directorial abilities and wanted to pull him off the picture during the first few weeks of shooting, but Argento persevered under an iron-clad contract and ultimately proved his critics wrong with the finished product, a genuinely engrossing mystery punctuated by scenes of explicit horror.

A Birder's guide to Everything A Birder's Guide to Everything is a 2013 USA comedy by Rob Meyer.

The film was originally rated R For some language and crude references. The distributors presumably wanted a PG-13 for its teenage audience and so appealed to the CARA Appeals Board. The R rating for some language and crude references was then downrated to PG-13 for langauge, sex and drug references, and partial brief nudity.

A Bittersweet Life DVD

A Bittersweet Life is a 2005 South Korean action film by Ji-woon Kim
With Jeong-min Hwang and Yu-mi Jeong. BBFC link IMDb
Exists in a Theatrical Version and a Director's Cut

Summary Review : Just Keeps Getting Better

In the same vein as Oldboy comes A Bittersweet Life , a movie so good it shocked me when watching it for the first time. It's a violent revenge movie with a gripping story with some fantastic actors such as Byung-hun Lee.

As reviewer K. Jones has put it, this movie mixes violence and emotions in an excellent way, and even if the violence is a bit too brutal at times, you still have a lot of "nice" things to fall back on. There are a lot of action elements and the movie is quite stylish to say the least. Yet you still really care about the characters and what's going on.

This is easily one of the best Korean movies I've seen this year, and a movie that I will probably enjoy watching many times in the future.
