Video Vortex: Turkish Captain America and Santo vs. Spider-Man (1973)

Why do people keep making movies about Marvel super-heroes when the best one already exists? A maniacal psychopath known as Spider-Man is on a crime spree. He steals golden statues, attacks strippers in strip clubs, and murders people with shower nozzles, speedboat motors, and guinea pigs. In addition, Spider-Man's bushy eyebrows pop through his mask-holes and he prefers a switchblade over web-shooters. Naturally, the legendary super-hero team of Captain America and El Santo are called in to take care of business. AND THAT IS WHAT HAPPENS. Upside down drop kicks in karate dojos! Fistfights on top of speeding cars! Spider-Man's ability to clone himself at will (and often)! With non-stop fights and a total disregard for logic, this movie illustrates the proper way to realize the dreams of a thirteen-year-old without spending two hundred bazillion dollars doing it. At one point, Spider-Man and his girlfriend make love through his costume. Three puppets show up and start laughing. By the way, this movie is Turkish. (Joseph A. Ziemba)

Tickets are only $1! Buy your tickets ASAP, so we can sit close together!



I will be at Row 13, seat 11. I'm the seat in yellow in this diagram.

I'm going to be in the Alamo Ritz lobby at 9:30PM with a meetup sign. Once most of the people show up (I'm expecting ~15 people), we're going to head in to the theater. If you show up a bit late and don't see anyone, then you can just get your ticket and head on in to your seat.

    I think I am too pooped after a 12 hour shift for this one, sadly. I was looking forward to it. Officially flaking out.

    So this question may be for future reference but as a gal living in north Austin and also someone that has a hell of a time finding parking downtown would other northies ever want to carpool to The Ritz?
