My Baby Like The Western Movies - B-Movie Tribute Sites

I spent a good part of my wayward youth watching the Late Show, the Late, Late Show and the Late, Late, Late Show. Toss in a couple of Creature Double Features and I was a happy camper.

Classic B-Movies were produced quickly and with slim budgets. Unlike many special effect whiz-bangs of today, B-Movies have a plot. It may not be well developed. It may not be obvious. That is the beauty of a B-Movie, not only are you entertained you get to engage your critical thinking skills.

One of my favorite movie resources is Brian's Drive-In Theater. It is a tribute site for actors and actresses that appeared in movies such as Hercules, Muscle Beach Party and Where the Sidewalk Ends. As an added bonus, there is celluloid beefcake!

I ask you, how often do you come across men posing half naked with their chest pumped up like a rooster? Yeah, yeah, there is cheesecake too. All this and Hercules, Tarzan and all the B-Movies information you can stand - http://www.briansdriveintheater.com.

A visit to Bad Movies is also in order. If the film tanked or is a mess from beginning to end, they just might have a review of it. Nevertheless, they do respect the classics such as C.H.U.D., Beginning of the End, Howard the Duck and The Abominable Dr. Phibes. I
can hear the good doctor wailing on the organ as he is disposing of his next victim. There is a rating system to help you separate the merely misguided from total stink bombs. http://www.badmovies.org
