    Pornochanchada: brazilian's imaginary during the militar dictatorship.

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. A selection of brazilian's popular films that were made during the militar dictatorship from 1968 to 1983. "Pornochanchada" was a popular genre that had in its concept the using of classic genres from the cinema industry mixed with soft nudity and nacional popular themes. This is the period when Brazil had for the first time a marginal cinema industry. Independent producers invested their capital in films that contained sensual an provocative content. Cinema was the number one form of entertainment for the working classes and, for the first time, the films were able to compete with foreign productions.

  7. Popular Spanish cinema in the late Franco years's icon

    Popular Spanish cinema in the late Franco years

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. While most of the films in this list have an awful reputation they are an excellent and often funny way to analyse the reactionary ideology, values and beliefs imposed during the Franco regime as well as the use of different film resources to make them look appealing to the audience. Conceived usually as a comedy, they were extremely popular in its time and even today they are regularly shown on Spanish TV channels. The book that presents this selection of films is part of a recent research project in sociology and ethics funded by the Spanish government. From the book "Cine de barrio tardofranquista: reflejo de una sociedad" by Miguel Ángel Huerta Floriano and Ernesto Pérez Morán (eds.), Ed. Biblioteca Nueva, 2012. ISBN:978-84-9940-560-5. Films are listed in the same order they are presented in the book.

  9. The 50 Best Adventure Movies's icon

    The 50 Best Adventure Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. Adventure movies tell stories based on fantastical features of our world, setting them apart from the fantastical setting of the future worlds of science fiction, the mythical realms of fantasy, or the alien otherworlds of horror. If an adventure movie contains elements of another genre, like the supernatural event in Raiders, these are merely lightly sprinkled spices, while adventure is the main ingredient. This rule of thumb means that movies depicting another world are excluded, whether it is sci-fi technology or fantasy-inspired magic that are the genre-specific component of that world. Though all movies included here have adventure as their main focus, driven by lust for exploring and appetite for discovering, they have wildly different tones. Some have comedy as their lodestar with entertainment as their guiding light and are dazzling light in tone. Others' staple element is drama, often hotly spiced with thrilling action. Yet they all share a central emotion: the exhilaration of a perilous journey taking heroes to unexpected awe-inspiring places. The journey might begin as a venture to fulfil a daring dream, or a search for a mysterious object in exotic parts of the world. It might end with a breathless chase and a wild escape through the unknown. A recurring theme is that of the adventurers altruism, their selfless heroic sacrifice at the end of their hero's journey. These adventure movies that I've loved aren't ranked according to the score I've given them. Instead, you'll find that those placed at the top are the ones that have a bigger emphasis on adventure and entertainment.

    Flavorwire's "The 50 Funniest Stand-Up Specials of All Time"

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. This Saturday night promises to be a big one for comedy geeks. First off, Comedy Central is airing Bill Cosby: Far From Finished, the legendary comedian and sitcom star’s first new comedy special in over 25 years. Meanwhile, over on HBO, Sarah Silverman is starring in her first special for the network, We Are Miracles. Though the two comedians couldn’t be more different, both specials feel like landmarks: innovative, intelligent, and brilliantly funny. To celebrate this big night for televised stand-up, we put together the definitive list of great comedy specials created for television, home video, or digital (theatrically released concert films, like Silverman’s Jesus Is Magic, Cosby’s Himself, and — sadly — most of Richard Pryor’s filmed work, don’t qualify). Here’s our 50 best, of all time, with a couple of extras to boot: [November 18, 2013]

  25. The Bowery Boys's icon

    The Bowery Boys

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. The Bowery Boys were fictional New York City characters who were the subject of feature films released by Monogram Pictures from 1946 through 1958. The original main characters were Terrence Aloysius "Slip" Mahoney (Leo Gorcey), Horace Debussy "Sach" Jones (Huntz Hall), Bobby (Bobby Jordan), Whitey (Billy Benedict), and Chuck (David Gorcey, sometimes billed as David Condon). "Sunshine" Sammy Morrison ("Scruno" in the East Side Kids films), declined the invitation to rejoin the gang (later stating in an interview that he "didn't like the setup", possibly referring to the idea of Gorcey and Hall being in the forefront, and being paid much more than the other members). When Bobby Jordan quit the series for the same reason, his character was replaced by Butch Williams (with former East Side Kids Bennie Bartlett and Buddy Gorman alternating in the role). The proprietor of the malt shop where they hung out was the panicky Louie Dumbrowski (Bernard Gorcey - Leo and David's father).
