Title in BLACK = From my personal DVD / BluRay collection
Title in RED = Seen online
Title in PURPLE = Seen in movie theater during current theatrical run
* = First-time viewing

APRIL 1
1. The Astral Factor*
(1978) Interest in ESP was quite a fad back in the 70s and there were many movies with that theme back then, this is one of them and not a very good one I'm afraid. A man with the ability to astral project uses his powers to kill. 70s small-screen mainstay Robert Foxworth is the cop who must stop him. Stefanie Powers also stars but he's role is relegated to being the cop's wife. Hight points: Elke Sommer in a bikini and a brief scene of Stephanie Powers' bare butt.

APRIL 2
2. WILD CARD 1: Pacific Rim: Uprising*
(2018) I use a wild card because this is a big-budget movie but in all other aspects this is B movie all the way. Giant robots fighting giant monsters, corny dialogue, cardboard characters, etc. Not a criticism by the way, the movie was fun and delivered on the action.

APRIL 3
3. Punch Girl*
(20??) Korean movie about an abused wife who challenges her husband to a kickboxing match. An interesting premise but the movie takes WAY too long to get to the action.
4. C.B. Hustlers* (1976) A trio of hookers turn tricks in the back of a custom van. Bare boobs aplenty including the fantastic breasts of porn star Uschi Digard that alone are worth the price of admission.

APRIL 4
5. Black Scorpion
(1995) Roger Corman produced superhero flick. The gorgeous Joan Severence is a cop who also fights crime in a sexy black suit as the Black Scorpion. Brief nudity but Ms. Severence may have been using a body double.

APRIL 5
6. Tekken*
(2010) Generic as hell movie based on the video game.

APRIL 6
7. Sting of The Black Scorpion
(2002) Three episodes of the TV series stitched together to make a full length movie. The Black Scorpion fights Firearm, Flashpoint and Clockwise (played gleefully by Frank Gorshin).
8. Cavegirl (1985) A student goes into a cave and is transported to prehistoric times where he befriends a beautiful cave girl (Cynthia Thomas). Some brief boob shoots are all you get.

APRIL 7
9. Coach
(1978) A woman is hired (reluctantly) to coach a school basketball team. The beautiful and athletic Cathy Lee Crosby is perfectly cast as the coach who wins over her players and the school. Michael Biehn (later of Terminator and Aliens fame) is the lucky student who gets to have sex with the coach. Some side boob and wet T shirt from Ms Crosby as well as some chicks flashing their breasts early on are about all the T&A on display but still a very entertaining movie.

APRIL 8
10. Rendel*
(2017) Totally generic superhero movie from Finland that rips off every over used trope in the genre. Boring.

APRIL 9
11. Jocks
(1986) A school's tennis team go to Las Vegas for a tournament. Boobs and hijinks ensue.
12. Amityville: The Awakening* (2017) A meta-movie that references the original Amityville movie as well as the book. A new family moves into the infamous house, soon the bed-ridden son becomes possessed by the demon dwelling in the house. Could have been a lot better but still watchable.

APRIL 10
13. The Pom Pom Girls
(1976) A pre-Revenge of the Nerds Robert Carradine stars as the leader of a group of rebellious fun-loving teenagers. Pretty entertaining as a look back into the 70's. Cheryl "Rainbeaux" Smith also stars. However I've found out that the version I have in my Too Cool For School box set released by Mill Creek is edited. That seems strange since the other movies I've seen have plenty of nudity so why should this one be edited? Strange.

APRIL 11
14. Split
(2016) I wouldn't call this excellent thriller a B-movie but since M. Night Shyamalan is on the safe list I include it here. Like I said, an excellent well acted thriller with a very intriguing premise that is deftly executed. One of M. Night's better films.

APRIL 12
15. Tomboy
(1985) The gorgeous Betsy Russel is a mechanic with dreams of racing her own stock car. Boobs and hilarity ensue.

APRIL 13
16. Weekend Pass
(1984) Four Navy recruits on a weekend pass try to get some. Strip joints, parties and trouble in the hood.

APRIL 14
17. My Chauffeur
(1986) Not even Deborah Foreman's cuteness can overcome her annoying and stilted over-acting which makes many of her scenes not funny at all. A contrived story about a free-spirited girl limo driver who tries to make it in a "man's world" where she isn't wanted. Sam Jones (Flash Gordon) and Penn and Teller also star.
18. Malibu Beach (1978)
19. My Tutor (1983)
20. Rampage (2018)

APRIL 15
21. The Beach Girls
(1982) Of all the movies from the Too Cool for School box set this is the one with the most nudity. A couple of loose of girls use their straight-laced friend's beach house to throw an epic party. Boobs and drug use ensue.
22. The Van (1977) A young man buys a custom van in hopes to become more popular and it does work but it's more than he bargained for. Brief nudity throughout. Danny DeVito stars in one of his early roles. An interesting look at Van Culture of the 1970s.

APRIL 16
23. Hunk
(1987) My least favorite in the Too Cool for School collection. A nerdy guy makes a deal with the devil and wakes up a handsome Hunk. Only mildly funny.

APRIL 17
24. Liar's Moon
(1982) Teen drama set in the 1940s or 50s about a young couple from opposite sides of the fence. Matt Dillon stars.

APRIL 18
25. The Kidnapping of the President
(1988) William Shatner stars as the head of the President's secret service. Hal Holbrook is the prez who is kidnapped by South American revolutionaries and placed inside an armored car packed with explosives. They will blow him up if their demands aren't met. Shatner goes all out in his performance as only he can. Pretty damn good.

APRIL 19
26. The Young Graduates
(1971)

APRIL 20
27. The Forgotten Man
(1971)

APRIL 21
28. The Death of Ocean View Park
(1979)

APRIL 22
29. City in Fear
(1980)

APRIL 22
30. Vampire
(1979)

APRIL 23
31. Murder by Natural Causes
(1979)

April 2nd

1. Dirty Harry (1971) 9/10. A classic crime/thriller and still one of Eastwood's best films. DVD

2. Magnum Force (1973) 7/10. A decent follow-up to Dirty Harry, but not quite as good. Blu Ray.

3. Buddy Goes West (1981) 5/10. A "Spaghetti Comedy". A bit lacking in a story and comedy. DVD *

April 3rd

4. Sartana in the Valley of Death (1970) 5/10. The Sartana character was popularized in quite a few Spaghetti Westerns. This one plays alot like The Good, The Bad and the Ugly. DVD *

5. The Touch of Her Flesh (1967) 3/10. The FIndlay's husband and wife duo act and direct in this 60's "roughie". Pretty dull stuff. DVD *
