Mark L. Lester’s Truck Stop Women is an exploitation feature that treats sex, violence, and sensationalism with love and affection. And Steel Arena is an interesting look at small-town America, where people will risk their lives for entertainment.
“Double-clutchin’… gear-jammin’ mamas who like a lot of hi-jackin’ by day… a lot of heavy truckin’ by night!”

Rising from the waves off the Tokyo coast is pop culture’s preeminent prehistoric powerhouse himself, the gargantuan Godzilla. In tribute to seven decades of reptilian wrath, artists Hector Arce, Mikey Bonanno and Tufan Sezer have tiki-fied cinema’s most iconic lizard for the first time ever.

Director John Boorman’s cerebral and eerily dystopian sci-fi tale Zardoz was released in 1974, not long after Boorman’s iconic Deliverance, and saw the director team up with Sean Connery, three years after his final official appearance as James Bond and light years away from anything either had done before.
In a post-apocalyptic 2293, Zardoz, a colossal stone head, floats over desolate plains, pausing to receive grain from masked horsemen, vomiting weapons as payment from its grimacing mouth.
“Beyond 1984, Beyond 2001, Beyond Love, Beyond Death.”
Friends, Britons and fellow James Bond fans, lend me your eyes – I come to praise Sean Connery, not to bury him.

“I must be dreaming.”
