[livejournal.com profile] deeablo and [livejournal.com profile] eep1313, I saw an awful movie tonight and immediately thought of you two.

Have you ever seen Kansas City Bomber? It's a 1972 movie about the roller derby, starring Raquel Welch. Right there, you might think, "Hey, it's a movie about the roller derby and it's got Raquel Welch, it can't be all bad." But you would be horribly wrong.

The dialog makes no sense, there's not much of a plot, there's some icky kissing between RW and the guy who plays her boss, the cinematography is horrendous (there are times people are talking *when they're just out of frame*, for no good reason), and the solution for how to incorporate the RW body-double for the skating scenes was, apparently, to simply have the double bend over a lot so her hair would be in the way and it would vaguely look like Cousin It was skating.

Jodie Foster is in it for about a minute and there's a main character who could have been Amy Winehouse's hair and alcohol problem inspiration.


The Windy City Rollers who were in the audience tonight assured us that they're much better than that. We did have a good time treating it like a Brew 'N' View flick.

Hee! Movies like that are either a lot of fun or a form of W. Bush-inspired torture. Also, I just realized I forgot to play my word today! ::punishes self:: Tomorrow though! Really!
