Roger Corman’s GAS-S-S-S

Wow.  I'm not sure how it happened that I never heard of this movie.  The full title is, "GAS-S-S-S, Or It Became Necessary To Destroy The World In Order To Save It"  Apparently the concept goes something like this: The world is in crisis (I'm assuming maybe it's a population issue?) so the government releases a toxic gas that kills everyone over 25.  I guess the assumption is that the young folks will get it together and fix the planet.  I bet you can guess what really happens, though....

Yup, you guessed it alright.  Wah-wah pedals come out of the woodwork, everyone drops acid and "freaks out"!  Umm... awesome!  Roger Corman is the master of making movies on effectively no budget, but somehow he managed to get Country Joe and Fishto make a guest appearance.  The set-up is simple, all the old fogies are dead so what do the kids want to do?  Well why not have a Woodstock-style 3 day rock fest?  Why not have it in a motel?!  Um... what?  Couldn't they just crash the Hollywood Bowl or something?

I'm seriously considering buying the Roger Corman collection, but then somehow I'll have to explain to my wife why we are watching bad movies on purpose.  These days, that's getting harder to explain to myself.  Heh.

Glen And Randa

Something like 12 years ago, someone told me that I needed to watch and review Glen and Randa.  Considering that the name of the movie didn't have the words "warrior" or "apocalypse" in there, I sorta blew them off.  So, here it is, many years later and as I look at the Amazon description of Glen and Randa, I've decided that I've done myself a disservice.  Not only does this look like a really unique take on the genre, I'm seeing something about Rated-X in the notes?  Um... what?  I didn't even realize that was a possibility.  Are you saying that I can combine porn with post-apocalyptic cinema?  Goodbye outside world, I will never see you again.

Anyway, if you watch this before me, please send in a review.

Warriors of the Wasteland

Based on the cover, Warriors of the Wasteland looks like a forgotten sequel to Road Warrior, so I'm psyched about this one!  Although, it's been so long since I watched (possibly) awful movies on purpose, I'm trying to think about how I'm going to sell this to my wife.  See, honey, here's the thing, umm... bows and arrows and explosions are awesome for the following reasons.....

Wish me luck.
