The Last Woman on Earth

I had a busy week and hadn't been able to post about this...

The Last Woman on Earth has it a lot worse that poor Yorick. With those two contenders for the position of Last Man on Earth I'd think death would be best. What would you do if you found the last possible significant other to be loathesome? How could one stave off depression?

For a thrown-together movie, I was quite impressed... no big or obvious goofs. A little odd to use the fortress at the last moment... and odd that they'd fight about boats. Why not just use any boat? But for a weekend shoot, this is movie was a hell of a lot better than I'd expected.

The last men on Earth might have been useful had they been in one of those teleportation machines from The Fly and been fused together. Maybe their positive personality traits would have combined favourably.

Evelyn really was put in a tough position having to choose which loser to be with. This movie was very watchable and I thought some of the dialogue was a hoot. My favorite line is when Martin says he is there to "pick up Harold's briefs." Priceless. The scene that really tickled my funny bone was the fish fight. Nothing says "back off, she's mine," like a flounder up-side the head. Kudos to Corman and the gang.
