Movie Reviews

The Big Kick In The Head
Andre S. Grindle | Brewer Maine | 05/10/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What makes these films so enjoyable for me is that when they were made,they were intended as dead serious educational material.HA!Maybe that's why they're so facinating now or,at the very worst,surreal fodder.Some films are hilerious and laughable,such as a case study on LSD in which a girl trips that a hot dog turns into a troll.Others are just bizzare-such as Sonny Bono trying to make clear the good and bad about marijuana even while he behaves as if he himself is stoned.A couple of the films are rather dull such as the boring classroom instructional 'Human Growth' and some are actually pretty serious warnings about the dangers of syphillis and sex education for mentally challaged adults.And not to be missed is 50's movie star Sal Mineo's bizzare song at the end of the
smug 'LSD-Insight Or Insanity'.These are really fun if your looking for a good laugh at the absurdity of youth education of the day,or if your just into weird propaganda."
Good Series

"I remember watching the sony bono one way back when, and at the time, as I still do, saw it more as a "pro" pot film and thought and still think that Sony HAD to do this film and I truly belive he had a couple puffs before doing this. My Mom remembers the it's wonderful being a girl segemant, and we both giggled and laughed at the early attempts at explaing "womanhood"I started laughing about halfway through the LSD one and stopped when it ended. I know full well it was supposed to be educational and taken seriously, but how many of you guys out there would have taken it that way, or know how many kids today would pay attetion? =)"

"The Educational Archives and Fantoma have produced a real gem here. This is seriously one of the most hilarious things I have ever seen. Some people actually doubt the validity of these archival 16mm prints due to their outlandish and ridiculously amusing nature. Even if you don't like drugs, you can not help from laughing at these amazing filmstrips. My personal faves are the Lockhead-Martin produced educational shorts (containing cool oil lamp visuals, beatnik-speak, and groovy music) espousing the dangers of LSD, amphetamines, heroin, and barbituates. The hipster slang in some of these shorts is incredible. The insightful film about Marijuana, narrated by Sonny Bono is a scream, as Sonny looks glorious in his gold jump suit and glazed eyes. 'Sex-Ed for Trainables' must be seen to be believed. This DVD never ceases to amuse me or my friends. Everyone who has watched this baby has found it to be completly hilarious. I have seen all of the other 'Educational Archive' DVDs, and this one takes the cake. There's a reason this is Volume 1. These short films range in date from the late 40's thru the early 70's. If you are a fan of the quirky, kitchy, or strange, you will love this. If you don't have a sense of humor, you may not (but I don't care about you). It's hard to believe that these shorts were shown to the youth in an attempt to scare them from doing drugs. If anything, these filmstrips make one want to experiment (especially the Amphetamine short). This DVD is highly reccomended to those seeking kicks. Don' be a square and cop this now, Daddy-O"

This film is meant to be humorous, as are the others in this series. 'Educational' customers who have a gripe because it's not 'useful' ought to read the description before purchasing. You have to watch this, unless you are totally lacking a sense of humor about drug and sex propaganda (and appallingly, those people STILL exist)."
