An interesting look at misguided youth spurred to revolution and free love at the end of the 60s in LA. We follow 2 strangers united by chance in the desert after a murder , a stolen plane and some frolicking in the desert. Soundtrack by Pink Floyd and the Grateful Dead. Visually stunning and filled with scenes that date the movie to it's time- this is well worth checking out. B+

Pair director William Castle with writer Robert Bloch ( Psycho, 3 episodes of classic Star Trek) and give them Joan Crawford, Diane Baker and George Kennedy and you have a hoot of a movie. Also look for the Fall Guy in a brief cameo at the beginning of the movie. This thriller is half unintentional (intentional comedy) and half horror film. If you like camp mixed with ax-murdering - you should enjoy this 60s concoction. B

Batman and Bill is a documentary currently streaming on Hulu about the co-creator of the Dark Knight. While it is an interesting story - the documentary felt overly long and like it was washing it's own car after 60 minutes.

Dirty Dozen - decades before the cartoonish Expendables - Lee Marvin leads this teamwork through montage cast of all-stars in a solid action flick from the 60s. I imagine this movie is on some Maxim or GQ list of macho movies dudes must watch. Hall of Fame RB James Brown , Donald Sutherland, Trini Lopez, Ralph Meeker , Charles Bronson and other action stalwarts of the 60s band together to train for a suicide mission behind Nazi lines.
Well worth checking out if you like ensemble action flicks. A
