Tonight I stumbled upon a blog called zyzcosmonaut. I have no problems spending a few nights aweek on reading and listening to blogs half as good and interesting as this one. But man, what a great blog this is!
I like it when people, who have a passion for subjects that are outside my scope, can make me enthusiast for their stuff. On this blog I heard some very cool and funky anime soundtracks, that I had never even heard of. But I also saw many B-movies, that were not on my list of movies-to-see-before-I-die. (The movies are even for download, but you have to become a registered member of Rapidshare for that.)
Via a link I ended up on another blog, 55 bells, where you can find this article:
This is ultra-superb! (Well, in my humble opinion anyway!) It may only be in Spanish language but the visuals certainly speak for themselves! La Mujer Murcielago aka Bat Woman/Batwoman stars sexy buxom beauty Maura Monti as the bikini-clad (non-DC Comics approved!) Batwoman in this late-60’s cult Mexican wrestler/superhero treat which is very much reminiscent of the Batman tv series starring Adam West. This one has all the required ingredients of classic trash retro cinema: cool 60’s instrumental go-go/surf/lounge music, a mad scientist, Piscies the Fish Man(!), Mexican wrestling and, of course, a skimpy bikini-clad Batbabe (oh yes!). Fans of the comic-book series Femforce will particularly enjoy this! ;)
The plot: La Mujer Murcielago (aka Batwoman) is a heroine who protects the innocent of Mexico. Her foe is the evil Dr.Williams, who has been kidnapping wrestlers to use their brain material in his experiments to create fish men!
Despite the trashy nature of such a film, this is probably the best movie Batwoman we’re ever likely to see and, even without the subtitles, is a far more enjoyable feature than the hugely disappointing Mystery of the Batwoman animated movie from 2003.
Unless you have nothing else to do for the rest of the week, I would NOT click on any of the links in the above text, because I can assure you that you will find more great stuff than you can handle. And don’t be surprised when you find no new contributions to this Soundtrack for the next few days.
Here is a tune that I found somewhere on one of the sites that I visited tonight, but I have no idea what it is or where it comes from.
