123movies The Blackout
Gross and outrageous movie about a loner who is taught how to turn himself into a girl, by doing this he gets closer to the girls in the local school and gradually kills them one by one. There is the plot, pure and simple, acting is of a fairly low standard and the sound quality is variable, but it never seems to take itself seriously and therefore its a laugh, if not intentional.
Watch if you like low budget rubbish rather than the high budget rubbish pedalled by Hollywood as entertainment for the masses.

The Invisible Man 123movies (2020)
Release: February 28, 2020
123movies The Invisible Man
The thing that attracted me to this movie was its title. I love Europe and have long had a fascination with Switzerland both for its beauty and its fierce, unwaivering independence and neutrality. Plus, I'm into women from the German speaking countries and this movie stars two beautiful ones, Elke Sommer and Senta Berger! So for $1.99, it was an automatic buy for me! So what if I wasn't clear about the plot?! To start off, the movie gets my award for the most attention grabbing intro that I've ever seen. A waiter in a fancy restaurant wheels a cart up to a table, pulls a gun out of his pants and shoots the customer - all in the first 30 seconds.
We later find out that the man killed in that scene was crooked arms deealer Georg Rasher of Vienna (the actor who plays him is uncredited) - one of five holders of secret accounts at a Swiss bank who recently received a blackmail notice that threatens to expose the account unless 1,000,000 Swiss francs are paid. In addition, the bank is told to pay 10,000,000 francs to keep the accounts secret. The total of 15,000,000 francs demanded is said to be the equivalent of about $6,000,000.
To investigate, the bank hires David Christopher (played by David Janssen), a former U.S. Department of Justice official who now resides in Geneva. In the course of his investigation, Christopher talks to the four living blackmailees - lovely Zürich resident Denise Abbott (Berger), who becomes his obligatory love interest, Texas businessman Dwight McGowan (John Ireland), Chicago crook Robert Hayes (John Saxon) and Dutchman Andre Kosta (Curt Lowens). It turns out that Christopher and Hayes already have a negative history with each other, which isn't surprising, as volatile and obnoxious as Hayes is.
Like many good mysteries, this movie gives us several suspects to choose from including Rita Jensen (Sommer), the mistress of the bank's vice president, Franz Benninger (Anton Diffring), and two men who are out to kill Hayes and Christopher, Korsak (Arthur Brauss) and Sando (David Hess).
Two other characters who add a lot to the movie are the bank's worried president, Johann Hurtil (Ray Milland) and Captain Hans Frey (Inigo Gallo) of the Swiss Federal Police, who is suspicious of Christopher and has several sarcastic run ins with him.
Eventually, the bank decides to cave in and pay the blackmailer. But what action movie hero would go for that?! Christopher, of course, attempts to foil the plot, which leads to a dramatic climax that provides a couple of surprising twists.
Some people complain that this movie is confusing. And I understand their point. To understand it fully, you have to pay very close attention to it from start to finish. It's very cleverly written and if you miss even a minute or two, you'll probably miss something important.
The two cuts of the movie that I've seen are relatively short - 1:20:57 and 1:23:22) - but not a single second is wasted. The movie has so much intrigue from so many sources that there's no room for boredom. There's lots of suspense, the action scenes are exciting and heightened by Klaus Doldiner's progressive jazz-funk music, the scenery (I'm fairly certain that it was filmed entirely in Switzerland) is fantastic and the combination of European and American actors give it a strong international feel.
Judging the movie by itself, I consider "The Swiss Conspiracy" to be a great movie. But its technical quality leaves a significant amount to be desired. Visually, it's decent, but the sound wavers from solid to weak, sometimes in the same scene. At several points, the dialogue is so soft that it's hard to decipher - so much so that I rewound, turned up the volume very loudly and sometimes still couldn't pick out the words.
Also, I warn you that on the cheapie DVD that I have, some of the editing is embarrassingly sloppy. And the transfer apparently comes not from an original source but rather a TV company as the obscenities are silenced! There is a free version available for download at http://www.publicdomaintorrents.com. It apparently is the theatrical version of the movie or at least closer to it than the cheapie DVD version is. The movie has apparently become public domain. I don't know how it reached that status but it's very sad that it did.
In conclusion, "The Swiss Conspiracy" is a great mystery thriller that could have been something spectacular with a big budget. Still, it is my favorite obscure movie of all time. I love the movie so much that I have a web page for it at http://www.geocities.com/theswissconspiracy and an e-mail discussion list for it at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/theswissconspiracy.
Only the movie's technical deficiencies prevent it from getting a perfect 10. As it is, I rate it 9/10.

Hanna D: The Girl from Vondel Park (1984)
** 1/2 (out of 4)
Italian trash is pretty much a remake of CHRISTIANE F. Teenager Hanna (Ann-Gisel Glass) shows old men her body for some quick cash but after hitting the streets to get away from her alcoholic mother, she soon finds herself with an even bigger creep who gets her hooked on heroin and forcing her into prostitution. If you shy away from trash that takes a serious subject and exploits it just to show off some T&A then you'll certainly want to stay far away from this movie, which is certainly one of the sleaziest that I've seen. It's not that the film is overly graphic but exploiting a subject matter like this is going to raise a few eyes and there's enough over-the-top moments here to make fans of the genre happy. We get outrageous dialogue between the hookers and their clients, silly cat fights between the woman, a drug dealer getting beat up by two men on motorcycles, the drunk mother wanting her daughter to sleep with her boyfriend so that he'll stick around and all of this happens in the first twenty-minutes! The sleaze level is pretty high from start to finish as the main reason for this movie being around is so that various women can take their clothes off. Glass does a pretty good job in her role as she manages to handle the sleaze as well as the more serious moments that the film offers. She was apparently twenty-years-old when this was released but her body looks much younger and this here really adds to the creepy nature of the subject matter. The supporting cast are the types you'd expect to see in something like this and that includes the really bad dubbing. The 84-minute running time gets to feel a bit long after the first hour due in large part to the movie turning way too serious in the second half. I'm not sure about others but I hate when an exploitation film tries to switch gears and put across some sort of message. Another problem is that the story itself is so choppy that it just seems to bounce from one situation to the next without too much thought or reason. Bruno Mattei was in charge of editing and some might think this is the reason for the film being so choppy but I'd guess it had more to do with the screenplay not offering more. So, in the end, if you're a fan of Euro-sleaze then eat up as this here offers enough for two movies.

The name of the show caught my attention as I was scrolling through my TV app on my phone. Since the first episode I've been so intrigued by the entire cast. The ladies of the show are very unique, full of personality, charismatic, beautiful, stylish, and are so open. I think it's a refreshing take on love, compassion, friendship, and communication. Jack Daniels is very encouraging in his tone of voice, it makes me happy for everyone that is apart of this endeavor. I'm glad this show exist! I don't watch the new episodes until the weekend so my mind and time can be free to embrace every word. I hope the show continues with the current cast because I've grown fond of all of them individually. Granted this show is based on a class therefor I know it will come to an end. Very glad I stumbled upon this I think every lady around the globe should watch.

123movies Fantasy Island
In a film seemingly not supervised by a director, two California college roommates, Chuck (Tate Donovan) and Wally (Grant Heslov) take part in a vapid adventure obviously targeted at a barely pubescent audience. Chuck has an opportunity of which he has dreamed, to work for a large corporation where he will begin at $60000 per year, if he will complete a pre-employment assignment for the CEO (Robert Stack), a friend of Chuck's father. His duty is to deliver an expensive new Porsche, a birthday gift to the CEO's daughter in Lake Tahoe, but naturally complications occur due to Wally, the irresponsible friend of Chuck. Wally convinces Chuck to first utilize the Porsche as "bikini bait" in San Diego, where there is coincidentally a scheduled beauty pageant, and where the car is stolen. The manipulation of Chuck by Wally makes little sense throughout this affair, but sensible behaviour is not readily found within the script, as it would only interfere with pratfalls and bathing suit competitions. It is enough to mention, as ever with this type of film, a providential solution is found for personal relationship problems and that no one seems to mind if logic vanishes along the way. A payday is given to veterans Stack, Leslie Nielsen and Elizabeth Ashley, all of whom essentially create their roles, and a bright spot is a performance by funnyman Robert Klein, with his usual off-kilter derelict, in this instance an aging surfer. Poorly written and edited, this picture can yet claim freedom from any mean-spirited component, its most offensive facet being that the viewing of it is fundamentally a waste of time.

123movies Sonic the Hedgehog
The critics are being pretty harsh on this film, and yet they give high praise to such films like Role Models and Get Him to the Greek, so go figure. But I had a lot fun with Due Date, It was a fun slapstick misadventure, almost what we loved about The Hangover, so it is clear to say I don't agree with the critics on this one.
Peter(Robert Downey Jr) an architect looking to get home to his pregnant wife(Michelle Monaghan) who is expecting in a week. And when he gets on a plane, he quickly gets kicked off, when he gets into an unfortunate incident with Ethan(Zach Galifianakis) a pot smoking moron, and wanna be actor, who is obsessed with the show Two and a Half Men. When Peter is looking for new ways to get home. Ethan has a car and offers to drive him. Although it is against Peters better judgment, but feeling there is no other way, he goes with him. Will Peter make it on time for his child's birth, or will Ethan drive him nuts during this?
A lot of people said this is a Plane,Trains and Automobiles ripoff, but you know what who cares. This was a funny laugh out loud film. Downey and Galifianakis have funny chemistry, they just play off each other perfectly. Like The Hangover it is one entertaining misadventure, I say don't listen to the critics, see this movie and form your own opinion.

123movies Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn
A show that seems to take itself serious yet not serious at the same time. A perfect mix of stupidity and hilarity that will have you craving more. Jon Glaser does a perfect job capturing his character "Neon Joe" and all of the characters play a part in the show and aren't throwaways. The hilarious he-yump always seems to put a smile on my face no matter the context used and the multiple cameos are fantastic. If you enjoy cheesy comedy that involves werewolves and sexual antics this will not cease to amaze you.
If you're into shows like Delocated and Rick and Morty you'll thoroughly enjoy Neon Joe.

123movies The Call of the Wild
Mulan 2 has a tremendous amount of heart and humor. I think the directing and the wonderful script go a long way to make up for some of the animation quality and actually it's really only one scene in particular where the animation is only so-so. There are scenes that are breathtakingly beautiful like the images of rice paddies which look like beautiful pastel paintings. The script is far better than most direct to video films. It is certainly as good, if not better, than most animated films that you'd see in the theaters. The jokes are fabulous and laugh out loud funny. There are moments of true suspense and warmth. I saw a special screening of the film that was not for employees and the audience had a wonderful time- laughing and teary eyed. Many little girls were playing Mulan after the lights when up. It was really adorable. The scene in the beginning where Mulan is practicing her fighting techniques with the little girls of the village is make-your-face-hurt-from-smiling wonderful.
I also liked that Mulan seems to have grown from the first movie to this one. She seems to have learned life lessons and made choices in this film that show this growth. Yet she still remains the Mulan that we love who follows her heart. Often it really captures eastern ideas, other times it just brushes upon them. But come on, it's a Disney film not a philosophy lesson.

123movies The Photograph
This movie was so perfect that it was almost too good to be true. If you are a fan of the Anime, you will LOVE this series. The Anime is without a doubt, the greatest animated series of all time. Everything else is far inferior compared to the greatness that is Cowboy BeBop. So I remember seeing this movie months ago and I set my expectations low because I didn't want to be that disappointed. Boy was I amazed at what I saw! I loved every bit, every aspect of this film. Once again, the Great Watanabe ,Nobumoto and co. have amazed the world of Otaku lovers with this work of sheer brilliance. Amazing production, amazing quality and I just love these people! Oh and I love Bandai, Sotsu, Sunrise. The music in this was astounding, as expected from the super-talented Yoko Kanno. She is in her own domain of musical excellence. The tracks were amazing, and contrary to what a previous reviewer has stated, the opener to this movie is so hip, funky and jazzy that you will want a copy of it and all the other amazing tracks featured in this film. The entire crew did an amazing job! The main characters that we all love, were treated with grace, dignity and were all handled beautifully. We were even treated to new characters that revealed themselves to be very deep and realistic. The script was amazing, so humane and real and yet often at times gush of sheer 'poetry'. The action sequences were a treat and are unforgettable. The animation in this is far superior to that of the series and are so groundbreaking that I feel that no hand-to-hand combat scenes or arial fight scenes have EVER been animated with this sort of amazing quality and sheer realism. They are sight to behold. Again, the crew responsible in this did an amazing job! I can't praise the creators of this enough! As far as the plot, everything seems to flow together smoothly and just as the series, at times, is almost 'artsy' in terms of momentum shifts and 'high and low periods' where everything just seems to fit in perfectly and make perfect sense. Folks, this film is a product that far surpasses anything Hollywood has given us in terms of this genre (non-animated even) for the passed 20 years. This far exceeds anything in terms of entertainment for that time period, IMHO. Granted, the characters and source material was so good that nobody could have ultimately 'messed up' a Cowboy BeBop movie. But still, this movie far exceeded mine and others expectations. When you read all these reviews you must realize that they are not all completely wrong. This movie is very very good, at the very least. Now, I see that some of the later reviewers were more critical of this then they were praising of it. Now, that is just silly, IMHO. I think these reviewers were so overanalyzed this thing to death, that they were only looking for what may be the slightest 'wrong thing' in this movie and decided to expound on them in their reviews. Don't take the very critical critics in here too seriously. These people probably have seen this thing 5 times straight and then after the 6th viewing decided one morning that this movie was not as good as they originally thought it was. This movie is so close to perfect that it would take the most anal of critics or the most yuppy of coffee drinking critics to find something even slightly wrong with this work of art. So, in other words, the critical ones on here are reading too into this and think that this is some sort of arthouse project that must contain some sort of hidden message that reveals the 'secret of life' or something.
In conclusion, if you are true BeBop fan, you will absolutely LOVE this movie to no end! If you are not a BeBop fan (as if those even exist) but love anime, you will still find this movie to be utterly amazing. If you do not appreciate any animated films whatsoever, you will still find this movie to be the 'exception' for it will be far superior to anything you have ever seen in years (non-animated wise). This movie was excellent in every aspect and is truly memorable in every way.
Bottom line, see this movie and prepare to be entertained.

123movies The Lodge
I used this movie to introduce Air Force student pilots to the science of meteorology in the late 1960's at Craig AFB in Selma Alabama. During the four years I was assigned to Craig AFB this movie became an integral part of the weather course for over 2000 Air Force pilots I taught, all university graduates many of whom were Air Force Academy graduates. The movie was used as a motivational tool and always kept the student's attention as the hazards of flying in weather were introduced to them. This movie could still be used today to inspire young children to consider a career in meteorology. I give this movie 9 stars for its content, scientific credibility, and presentation. It includes such topics as fronts and air masses, global circulation, thunderstorms, tornadoes and hurricanes. It even includes material on climate change which the world is debating today.

I watched all ten episodes of this original Netflix series over the course of two days, which will give you an idea of how immersive and compelling it is. Why the low rating then? Simply because this documentary is not really a search for truth in the case of Steven Avery, now a convicted murderer, than it is a biased presentation of one side of the story — Avery's side. Ten minutes of fact checking after my binge viewing revealed a wealth of damning evidence, along with a disturbing picture of Avery's criminal history, that is nowhere mentioned in the documentary as it attempts successfully to portray him as a railroaded innocent, a victim of police corruption and duplicity. If anything, the documentary does provide an inescapable indictment of the Wisconsin criminal justice system — for that it gets 3 stars. You get a visceral sense of how powerless most indicted nobodies are before a system that is stacked against them. But at the end of the day, this documentary fails in its main task, which is to provide all the pertinent facts, and let viewers draw their own conclusions. For that reason, even though I enjoyed it from beginning to end, I feel it is essentially a waste of time — a slick presentation of a single point of view, with critical facts hidden when they support a different conclusion than the filmmakers clearly started with.

123movies I Still Believe
The beginning handful of episodes showed promise, but the writing has galloped downhill into a swamp of snark and sarcasm and cliché.
The females tend to be emotionally immature sexual aggressors without warmth or empathy...almost interchangeable. I think we must have a lot of male writers on the staff who are of the type who do not interact comfortably with women In Real Life. The females, for the most part, are Mean Girls.
For some reason, the show's stylists have almost all the women with straight long hair, uniformly un-styled. There is a sameness to their looks as well as their personalities.
"Alice" is identified as a "nerd" by (obviously nerdy) heavy black glasses frames. Her short stature and matronly bosom are unflatteringly dressed in tight-waisted full-skirted dresses that bell out, with lots of pleated fabric. This is an unkind look for her.
The male lead stutters every other word, avoiding eye contact. Now Hugh Grant can get away with this, as he is a better actor, but in our lead actor, it seems painfully mannered. The character has become as insufferable as Louis in Rice's Vampire Chronicles. As he is now believed about the existence of an alternative world, there is no reason for his aura of general mopiness. He seems to pity himself more than we can.
The dialogue is inane and does little to reveal character or move the story forward; just expository and unnatural speechlets. Everyone is dreadfully earnest. The storytelling is disjointed. The dialogue is painful and tries too hard to be hip. We know how that generally works out. The characters all seem to be unwilling or unable to express themselves directly. (Snark, simper, sigh, eyeroll, insert linguistic meme here...)
Julia, The Beast, and Eliot are the characters of interest here. I feel for the actors who are portraying them, stranded in this morass.
My level of disappointment is great, as the books are rich with material. They deserve better treatment than this bad high school play.

Three intrepid martial artists (Geoff Binney, John Dresden, John Locke) plan to relieve some stress and enjoy a jaunty vacation by joining a lovely singles cruise to the islands located by the South China Sea. Unwittingly, the crew aboard this luxurious liner manned by a loquacious skipper (Cameron Mitchell) and his strident, pessimistic wisecracking "partner," Hazel Buck (Hope Holiday) is lured into an oblivious locale known as the "Warriors Island." What's even worse, this seemingly taciturn location is inhabited by a sect of hungry monks who crave the flesh of the living virgins. As well, the Warriors Island contains the burial ground of many of history's most violent and notorious martial artists who have been condemned for their dearth of honor. To escalate the quandary even further, these avaricious monks, never satiated with enough fresh and blood, plan to use their black magic to raise the living dead and create an army of indomitable killing machines...
Besides encountering piranhas and zombies and maniacal, cannibalistic monks, Mitchell's crew must contend with yet another antagonist, Dr. Speer (Ralph Lombardi), who speaks with a very horrendous (and probably fabricated) German accent. The three main martial artists have only their wits (as always) and their athletic prowess against a multitude of flesh eating zombie martial arts experts. The distressed characters must escape this island before their nightmarish scenarios end with...just their deserts...
RAW FORCE was one of the stupidest films ever made! Atrociously stereotypical and misogynistic, RAW FORCE elicited a lot of repulsion out of the audience. This film contained pseudo-martial arts sequences and as same battle scenes were virtually reiterated throughout the film, an interesting premise eventually became worn out and tedious. The lighting effects were also unbearable. At times, the film was nearly impossible to watch for the darkness of nighttime background almost completely covered a few highlighted battles between the forces of good and evil. As for the performances, the novice thespians in this film were completely stagnant, lacking enthusiasm, and the humor failed most of the time.
That, having been said, RAW FORCE has its moments as a tongue-in-cheek superficial, cheaply made thriller. RAW FORCE was indeed a very, very bizarre motion picture. You want the quintessential cult film? Well, RAW FORCE has it all...from naked caged women and to undead martial artists, man-eating fish, a Bruce Lee (or Jackie Chan) impersonator (Rey King) and even including hordes of those diabolical monks who can manipulate the kung-fu fighting zombies. The odd assortment of goofy characters will stupefy even the most die hard exploitation fans.
RAW FORCE puts too much effort attempting to be funny. Instead, this film unwisely protrudes its roots of ineptitude. I giggled at the overall inanity of this dull production. Strange, perverted, and disgusting. This film is truly a gross out and not for all tastes.
Mark my words, I was rolling on the floor, laughing out loud by the time this film was finished. The director/screenwriter of RAW FORCE, Edward D. Murphy (HEATED VENGEANCE) couldn't decide if he wanted this flick to be a parody or a conventional gore movie. This flaw was evident as RAW FORCE was inconsistent of its structure. Perpetually corny, see this film only to laugh out loud at its amateurish style. DO NOT expect to see anything remotely erudite in this movie! Still...this film is fun...in a junky sort of way.

This seems to be the kind of low budget film you watch when you have nothing else to do. Well, I got hooked by the first five minutes and I had to keep watching even though I had other things to do. The opening rescue scene is full of suspense and the protagonist's(Jonas) conflict is so quickly established that Paul Ziller and associates put you right into the story immediately.It's not surprising that Roger Corman, infamous for quick, low budget but high quality horror productions in the 1960s, is the executive producer. The setting and mood surrounding a fire crew camp is quite realistic. There are a lot of original features to this film that make it strongly recommended.

I am actually waiting for this movie to become available on VHS. It would tie in perfectly with what I teach in my political economy class.
The movie clearly explains how rich countries can dominate poorer ones. It also causes one to re-think capitalism, competition and the "invisible hand."

Have read various books which dealt with Joseph Goebbels one of Hitler's right hand men who carried out the murder of Millions of Jewish people and many more people from various countries. Goebbels had some very dark secrets as a young man growing up who carried out all his sick mental problems on other people. Joseph Goebbels is played by Wolfgang Zilzer who did a great job of acting and also looked very much like the real person. Goebbels in real life loved all kinds of women and he really loved Maria Brandt, (Claudia Drake) who was a very pretty German actress who gave Joseph a hard time. However, Hollywood twisted the story which made Goebbels into a person who was not as evil as he really was. In real life, Goebbels really went to bed with this famous German actress and was really married to a very beautiful woman who had to turn her back on all his affairs. Nice 1944 film.

I will try very hard not to spoil anyone's enjoyment of the first episode. (Incidentally, the introduction in the Kindle version of Childhood's end -- and probably the latest print edition as well -- includes a major spoiler, which is a criminal act. Should you buy the book, skip the introduction until AFTER you've read the book and/or seen the series.) As other people have said, the premise revolves around some apparently benevolent aliens who invade, declaring an end of war, hunger, climate change, hatred, and the other banes of 21st century society. Most people love the idea, but pockets of opposition rise up from people who feel threatened in one way or another.
The twists and turns in the plot are complex, complicated, and often subtle. The surprise is that the series manages them very well.
The script was quite remarkable, adapting the 60-year-old novel and weaving its complexities more deftly than I had expected. The romantic aspects were largely invented for the series. Like most of Clarke's science fiction contemporaries, 20-something "boys" in the science fiction world were geeks (we called them nerds) who had little understanding and less experience with "girls". Simple ignorance explains why they had so few strong women characters. The film version brings the story into the present and at least attempts to restore the balance.
Many factors worked against this film. The film is visual to some degree, but it is mostly dialog and atmosphere. For some of us, it was an amazing novel that raised some provocative questions and didn't answer them. For me, when I heard that someone was turning the long-loved book into a movie, I reacted with skepticism, uttering my mantra over such things. It would be good or it would be terrible. It was unlikely to fall anywhere in between.
I suspect it was a difficult film to sell to advertisers -- the lifeblood of the industry. There was a lot of mystery and adventure, but little or no pyrotechnics. It might not draw a sufficient audience to justify such ambitious projects. I noticed a large number of house ads and station promos in the breaks instead of paying commercials. To the credit of the producers, writers, and director, they didn't compromise the material to draw a bigger audience. As a result, the story takes time to unfold, and some audience members might not be patient enough to stick it out. But if you want to see a genuine attempt to put a seminal and unconventional novel on the home screen, give this a try. It isn't perfect, but it was well worth the effort -- and it's well worth your time.
