Upside Down: The Creation Records Story
Over a quarter of a century since it began and a decade after it folded, this is the definitive film about Creation Records, one of the world's most successful and colorful independent labels. This is the story of the rock n roll dream and its accompanying nightmares. Millions of sales on both sides of the Atlantic, near bankruptcy, pills, thrills, spats, prats, success, excess, pick me ups, breakdowns and of course some of THE defining music of the late 20th Century. This is the definitive and fully authorised story of the UK's most inspired and dissolute label, from the Jesus & Mary Chain at the Living Room to Oasis at Knebworth.

(br) wrote: A bitter, claustrophobic memoir. The fragmented narrative plays like a very long trailer for a far longer film. I found the constant use of jolly singsongs as a means of highlighting the misery of the situations the family faced rather annoying after a while. It would be easy to dismiss this shovelled-on poignancy as cynical, but the dialogue, brilliantly-drawn characters and slavish attention to detail in the recreation of the tiny world they inhabit show that this is one from Davis's heart.

(nl) wrote: Big, beautiful, expensive MGM production with an all-star cast and production numbers by Busby Berkeley (including "You Stepped Out of a Dream"); Judy sings "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows" and "Minnie from Trinidad." A wonderful wallow from beginning to end.
(au) wrote: After the success of The Vampire Lovers, Hammer knew they could make money by showing more female skin in their productions. The actress showing the most skin in the that film was actress Ingrid Pitt so they decided to give her body another go around with their next production Countess Dracula. The results of Countess Dracula however prove that just by showing more skin by far doesn't make a great film.The film opens with an old queen bitch who is unhappy with the will reading at her husband's wake. While getting ready for a bath she bitch slaps a mad and when the mad's blood touches her skin, it proves to make her young again. She locks up her visiting daughter in order to be a stand in and all goes well until she reverts to her old age again, only uglier, after a few days. So she and her second in command start combing the village for virgins and he is willing until she falls in love with a younger man, then all hell breaks loose due to jealously.Due to the title many people will expect to be a vampire film which it isn't. Many people actually mistakenly think this to be an entry into Hammer's Dracula franchise but again this isn't so. It's actually a version of the classic legend of Elizabeth Bethory so basically it's about an old hag who bathes in blood to look young. Here lies the problem as there isn't enough plot to make this worthy of an hour and a half and there's very little action to keep the film moving.Another problem is Ingrid Pitt just isn't that strong of a n actress to carry a film. The Vampire Lovers had a lot more going on so it didn't really mostly on her shoulders and here she proves her body isn't enough to hold a film together.The production values are also a shy compared to older, better Hammer outings and the studios declining popularity is very evident, despite the Studio desperately trying to stay afloat by adding nudity into their films.Hammer fans will find something to like but this is a far cry from great Hammer material. It lacks the great actors of other Hammer outings as well as production values. It also lacks the likable exploitation elements of The Vampire Lovers making this an overall very disappointing effort from the studio. Perhaps Ingrid Pitt would have been better off doing the sequel to Vampire Lovers, Lust for a Vampire, instead of this? Hard to say...

(gb) wrote: That's one star for the surprisingly catchy theme song by The Supremes, another star for the presence of Vincent Price, and a half a star for having the comedic team of Frankie Avalon and Dwayne Hickman. There's no way around it, this movie is ridiculous, but like previous "Beach Party" departure films, this movie is aware of its ridiculousness. Vincent Price is a mad scientist who came up with the kooky idea of making sexy robotic women who can marry rich men allowing him to reap the rewards. Mild hilarity ensues of course.Vincent Price is in rare form with his overacting, but with such material, can one really blame him? There are a few genuinely funny moments, a couple of great in-jokes referring to past "Beach Party" movies, the only big flaw is that it takes far too long before Dwayne Hickman and Frankie Avalon team up.

Italy has vacation leave, France has school lunches and sex education, Finland has no homework, no private schools and no standardized testing, and Slovenia has free university - even for foreigners! In other countries he shows us women in power, prisons that are based on rehabilitation not revenge, and the power of acknowledging your country's past. It's quite a world tour, and I teared up twice during the educations pieces. The Ah Ha! moment at the end is pretty nice too! Overall, a great look at how some of the problems in our country have been successfully addressed around the world!(now shave and wash your hair, you filthy filmmaker! eeewww...)
