Glen or Glenda – The Cinema Snob

The Cinema Snob finally ventures into the world of Edward D. Wood Jr!

About thecinemasnob

Brad Jones portrays The Cinema Snob, a pretentious film snob who is stuck with reviewing Z-Grade exploitation flicks of the past. I'm a big guy. For you.

    What the heck at Bela Lugosi in this!? I fail to see what he says has to do with anything the movie is about! His whole narration would be better fit for some fantasy movie that features witches, fairies, and dragons! Not some movie about Transgenders!

    • I’m gonna take a wild guess here and suggest that his scenes were filmed some place and time completely separate from the rest of the movie. It doesn’t seem like even he knows what the story is. More like he’s just glad to be employed!

      Granted I have seen the Tim Burton biopic which suggests exactly that, so my theory my be someone clouded. That film did take quite a few liberties so I’m not sure I buy the notion Ed told him he was supposed to by playing Dr. Jekyll! Still, Bela was struggling to find work in his later years (that’s pretty much confirmed) so whether he would’ve turned down anything having to do with transvestism…well who the hell knows.

    • Ed Wood was a huge Bela Lugosi fanboy and shoehorned him in ALL his movies until Lugosi’s death, and even then, Ed crudely shoehorned him in posthumously in Plan 9 from Outer Space. Lugosi was grateful for Wood’s help with finding treatment for drug-addiction and with relaunching his acting career.

    This movie is just surreal. It’s striving so hard to seem like an objective documentary, while at the same time it’s obviously Ed Wood pleading for understanding about his own sexual orientation, and then there’s some good old-fashioned lurid exploitation titillation footage thrown in for good measure. It’s hilarious and funny and also kind of bittersweet.

  3. It took you less than 10 years to finally review an Ed Wood movie. Better late than never.

    The poster looks like it was illustrated by one of the guys who did those crappy black & white parody comics from decades ago.

    8:19- Dude, are you trying to pull off the psychiatrist from the end of Psycho? I’m asking, because it’s not working well for you.

    12:05: Why the hell has this movie turned into Black is Beautiful?

    Thanks for the scene of you in a woman’s dress, Brad. I really needed that.

    21:00- And then they bang. HARD!

    24:46- Linkara agrees with you, and so do I.

    And now we know the Trump Administration’s views on the entire LGBT community.

    I’m happy to not have heard about Ed Wood until the age of the internet. Also, Is Jordan wearing Doug Walker’s teenage Nostiagia Critic wig?

  4. My grin is the shit eatiest.

    Brad actually does look good in a dress.

  6. I’d buy a T-shirt if it had a picture of Lloyd on it. Just sayin’
