What We Thought:
- I was not familiar with either The Roommates or A Woman For All Men and after watching them, I can see why.
- Some films age well, others don’t. These did not age well at all. They are both 70s sexploitation type films although I didn’t find either one all that sexy or hot.
- The Roommates was not what I was expecting. I wanted some cool horror/slasher type film based off the synopsis, but instead I got boredom.
- The first 20 minutes is pointless, just the characters talking, a useless party and that’s about it. It took like 40 minutes before someone died and by that point I didn’t care. There’s very few deaths till the end and that look laughable.
- A Woman For All Men didn’t do much for me either. Maybe in the 70s what was considered sexy was far different than today, but the “woman” wasn’t all that sexy. I couldn’t buy into her being the arm candy of an older man then seducing younger men.
- I did like seeing Alex Rocco in the film because I’m a fan, but I don’t think I recognized anyone else in the film.
- The Blu-ray looks ok. Both films are 40 or more years old so they didn’t look pristine in the first place. Although I have seen worse HD upgrades than these. Audio is top notch though.
- I’m sure there are diehard fans of Arthur Marks who can’t wait to get this combo on Blu-ray for the first time, but if all his films are like The Roommates or A Woman For All Men, I can’t call myself a fan.
