Forbidden Zone [74 min] (1980) - Oingo Boingo meets 6th-dimensional musical-comedy. Delightfully strange, camp, funny, and chock-full of tits. The music is excellent too.

Just watched this now, here's the mini-review I wrote: Low budget DIY sci-fi fantasy musical which is insanely crazy but also a little puerile, and unfortunately a bit racist and homophobic while women are treated poorly too. It's a shame as otherwise this is a mad old thing, quite unique and beautifully designed. The songs are fun (if throwaway) and there's a lot of pretty funny scenes in it, but due to the aforementioned shittiness it loses a point and only gets 7.1/10

It's a sequel to Endhiran (2010), otherwise known as the Indian Terminator.
I remember it got some very good press when it premiered in the US and UK at the time, also looks silly as fuck:

I watched Endhiran over the course of the last two days and loved it, it does sag in the middle and some of the songs go on a bit but the first and last hours are an absolute delight, packed with madness and some of the most inventive action scenes I've ever seen. Occasionally the cgi looks a bit dodgy and possibly made using an Amiga 500 (Chitti's fire fighting scenes especially) but a lot of the time it's really impressive, and the final half hour blew me away and made me giggle like a loon.

2.0 is just ridiculous, so funny, mad and very long, so long there was even a 15 minute break 90 minutes in.
It is so daft there is even the 3.0 sequel in the last quarter and I was totally exhausted by the end of it,
it was like having three Indian meals at once and as for the FX and plot and musical numbers and word salad subtitles, jeeez it's just incredible

I truly can't wait for this now, and may well buy it on dvd as the first is so good and I'd like to own both and force friends to watch them.

Endhiran sounds good, so good you forgot to score it (again!)

As for Forbidden Zone, I found its crassness/tastelessness totally harmless and good-natured, personally. It reminded me of the type of dumb childish humour that we'd try to get away with in drama class when we were 11.
Very charming and imaginative I thought.

It's clearly the first sign of senility. But for the record it got 7.9, and would have been much higher if not for that slightly dull middle section.

Yeah, I mean I don't think it set out to upset anyone in any way, and otherwise I agree with your comments about the film, but the sexism is a bit ridiculous and use of blackface (and the fact that all of the black characters are either pimps or murderers) left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth.

Well done whoever recommended Border, and i'll pass on the advice to not look up any other details beyond

Have you seen World's Greatest Dad with Robin Williams? That's a special and impactful film.

I have, I'm a big fan of Bobcat's and so saw it when it first came out and would agree with you, it's a fantastic bit of very dark comedy.
