She-Gods of Shark Reef (1958)

she-gods? not really.
just old broads in floral prints.
dudes have a slap fight

This old-timey film is in the public domain, but you can watch it on YouTube. Here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwyZ0V4eBO0

TNT Jackson

bitch, she’s T-N-T
and she fights like she makes love:
naked, but lights off

Quotable quote #1:
TNT Jackson: [turning off the lights in preparation for a fight] You want it black? You got it black!

Most of my favourite scenes involved Elaine, a (white) lady that is somehow involved with the men TNT is after. TNT doesn’t really think much of her — she calls her a bitch, calls her fat, she leaves her to be raped — you know how catty girls can be. Please excuse the language, but this is a pretty good example of a typical TNT/Elaine exchange:

Elaine: First of all, I’m not what you think I am.
TNT Jackson: I know. You’re a Girl Scout working on your badge for the equality of niggers.
Elaine: I’m a government agent.
TNT Jackson: Oh yeah? Well, I’m Snow White suffering from a sunburn.

Raiders of the Sun

Raiders of the Sun

This guy and his sweet flamethrower are not found in this film.

like every future,
it’s post-apocalyptic
and explodes a lot.

Note #1: There is almost an obscene number of mortar explosions in this movie. An average one explosion every ten seconds would be a conservative estimate. A great deal of this movie is just people running across rocky landscapes with big, harmless explosions happening a safe distance away. For a society where gunpowder has become more valuable than gold, they use it with curious frequency.

Note #2: This is another one from the team of noted Filipino director Cirio H. Santiago and “King of the Bs” Roger Corman. Angelfist! TNT Jackson! About a hundred other ones!
