I was under the impression the movie was pretty bad. Like campy-bad. After watching it I'd say it's not, not really. It's fairly interesting with good production value and some nice looking space station sets, if very 70's-ish.
And it took me the whole movie to figure out whose voice they'd dubbed over Harvey Keitel's(at first I just thought--maybe that's what Harvey sounded like...)
Anyway, all irrelevant. Because all this movie did, with one quick tit shot of Farrah plus a lot of teasing shots, was remind me of the two women who forever ruined me for women. Sent me looking for specimens as perfect as them.
This poster was on my bedroom wall as a kid. It came out in 1976. I mean, it has its own goddam Wikipedia page. So if you ever wonder if a 6 or 7 year old has sexual thoughts, the answer is yes. I can tell you for sure.
PS: This is what she looked like naked, even if it was a few years after you really wanted to see it. But hey, she still looked good.
That movie came out...I would have been about 13 before it came out on cable...and that movie wrecked me. Face and body, she had it all and man did she show it off. The joke is how much Keef is in the Tarzan movie? Miles O'Keefe(he played Tarzan), but it really should be how much Bo is in that movie...
For the next 15 years I spent my life looking for this lady in every girl I dated. Probably a reason you see a blonde, big breasted girl in most of the pictures of my ex-girlfriends.
But...it got worse. Then came Bolero. Not only was she naked, but she was having soft-core sex. This was pre-internet, so it's going to take you some imagination to figure out just how big a thing this was, but go ahead and give it a try.
So, I mean...I don't really have a point to this post. It was really just an excuse to go look up sexy naked pictures of Bo Derek. Totally worth it, imo.
Did I ever grow out of it? It doesn't appear so. Don't tell my wife.
Also re-watched Living In Oblivion, which I haven't seen in like 10 years. Luke and Nelly had never seen it. They liked it, and it's still a fun movie. It's crazy how much of the film terminology and practices have changed since everything went digital.
I bet you show that movie to a twenty-something film student and they'll be pretty confused about what some of those things are.
We followed it up with 13 Sins, a pretty entertaining low budget movie from Blumhouse. Not sure why it didn't get a theatrical release...I think it was more entertaining than The Purge, and with the same kind of high-concept idea that would be a quick sell.
Anyway, prepping for the convention next weekend. Also went out in the woods to look at a location but I'm probably not going to use it.
