What’s On NOW?!: “ORCA: THE KILLER WHALE” (1977)

Yep.

You Read That Right.

I’m Talking About A Motion Picture…

…Released TWO-Years After…

JAWS

…That Was Seriously Trying To Cash-In.

It (sadly and/or surely) Failed To Do So.

And Now…

…It Lives On In People Like ME.

People Who Said…

"Eh, I've Had Enough Of JAWS... Hey, Let's Watch That Killer Whale Flick!"

😉

And So…

…Here It Is…

ORCA: THE KILLER WHALE

(1977)

…Starring…

RICHARD HARRIS

&

WILL SAMPSON

&

CHARLOTTE RAMPLING

…And Of Course…

BO DEREK

!!! !!! !!!

Now Tell Me You’re Not Intrigued?!

Tell Me You Don’t Wanna Know More?!

GREAT!!

I Just KNEW Y’all Were Game For This One!!

ORCA: THE KILLER WHALE

…Was One Of My Favorite Flicks As A Child…

…And I Suppose You Could Say I Never Grew-Out-Of-It.

I Actually Used To Pretend I Was…

RICHARD HARRIS

(called "NOLAN" in this flick)

…And I Would Pretend The Bed In The Room…

(any bed, any room)

…Was The Ship.

And By God, I Would Hunt My Killer Whale.

I Would Sail Onward…

…Into The Frozen Wasteland Known As The Arctic.

By Gum, I Was Going To Find That Whale…

…And I Was Going To Put A Harpoon…

(a harpoon made from Legos or Construx)

…Deep Into Its Bloody Back-Side!!!

😀

The Film, Honestly, Is Very Simple.

Man Kills The Whale’s Mate AND Child.

Whale Reeks Havoc On The Seaside Town.

Man Goes After Whale.

Whale Takes Out His Revenge On Man.

Very Cut…

…Very Dry…

…Very Simple.

It Is NOT A Thinking-Man’s Flick…

…It’s Just A Classic Revenge Caper.

BUT…

…Does That Make It Any Less Enjoyable?

Well…

…Not To Me, It Doesn’t.

Like I Said…

…It’s A Flick From My Childhood That I Never Bothered To Outgrow.

It’s A Helluva Lot Of Fun…

…And I Was Tickled-Pink When It Was Finally Released On DVD.

While Some Of Y’all Would Have To Be Supremely-Plenty-Bored To Watch This Sort Of Trash…

…Others Of Y’all Would Likely Lap-It-Up Like A Cat With Fresh-Milk.

(by the way, don't give your cats milk as it's bad for their tummies)

BUT ANYWAY…

ORCA: THE KILLER WHALE

…Is A Fun Little Flick…

…And It’s One I’m Happy To Share With Y’all.

WHY?

Because I’m Pretty Damned Sure MOST Of Y’ALL Have Never Even Heard Of It, Let Alone Seen It.

Is It A GREAT FILM?

Not Really.

Is It A FUN FLICK?

MOST DEFINITELY!!

I’d Call It A VERY Forgotten Classic.

Isn’t That What Being Entertained Is All About?!

CRAP.

NOT CRAP.

KINDA CRAP’ISH.

NEAR CRAP.

CRAP-TASTIC.

They’re All Terms Used In Defining Most Anything In Life.

In Regard To This Film…

ORCA: THE KILLER WHALE

…I’m Forced To Call It…

“MAJORLY CRAP-TASTIC”

!!! !!! !!!

I Love It.

You Probably Don’t/Won’t.

But Does Knowing You Don’t/Won’t Affect My Decision To Watch It?

Nah.

NOT. AT. ALL.

It May Be “CRAP-TASTIC”…

…But It’s TOTALLY My Kind Of “CRAP-TASTIC”…

…Ya Know?!

Do You Feel My Jive, My Peeps?!?

Somehow…

…I KNEW YOU WOULD!!!
